TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF BIDRENTO
By registering as a user of the Service (“User”), you agree to these terms. If you do not agree to the terms, you are not entitled to use the Service.
Bidrento offers reliable software for rental property management and administration. Bidrento is an information society service provider and is not considered a broker or agent of the tenant or landlord.
The Bidrento platform is offered with functionality that is technically possible on the platform at the time of use i.e. on an as-is-basis. The service is used by tenants and landlords (including rental property managers) and maintenance service providers (for example such as cleaning, plumbing, electrical work, etc.).
Landlords can perform tasks such as viewing tenant profiles and making inquiries about tenant payments defaults. If the tenant does not have a personal identification code of the country in which the inquiries about tenant payments defaults are performed, then the payment default request cannot be made. Through the Bidrento platform, tenants can view information on lease agreements, provide monthly meter readings data and view rental invoices. To do this, it is necessary to fill in the tenant’s profile form with personal data (see also the section on Protection of Personal Data) or an invitation to use the Bidrento platform is sent by the landlord.
The user can use the mobile application related to the Bidrento platform only after registering as a user on the platform. It is not possible to register a user account in a mobile app.
