UPDATED: December 21, 2015
By using this website (the “Site”), IDX+, or any other products and services provided through this Site, you (“you,” “your,” or “User”) agree to the following terms and conditions provided by Talega Properties LLC (“Talega,” “us,” “our,” “we”, or “Talega Systems”). This Agreement between us and User supersedes all previous written and oral agreements, representations, and warranties. If you do not wish to agree to these terms of service (the “TOS” or “Agreement”), please refrain from using the Site and our products and services.
Please note: In this document the terms “upgrades” and “updates” are synonymous. The term “support” only refers to technical support.
Talega owns and licenses the IDX+ plugin for use on WordPress-based real estate websites. We provide support and updates in addition to the plugin, based on the license purchased. We also provide other software product licenses and extension licenses for our software products, each of which has with each having its own license for updates and support.
You must have the dsIDXpress plugin on your website to use IDX+. The dsIDXpress plugin is owned by Diverse Solutions, a Zillow company and is not affiliated with Talega.
Users also have access to the IDX+ closed Facebook Mastermind Group and the IDX+ Forums where you may interact with other IDX+ users.
2. User Conduct
All Users are required to abide the following rules of conduct.
• You must provide accurate information on your User profile.
• You are responsible for protecting your IDX+ support and maintenance license key. Do not share this information with others.
• IDX+ Forums and Facebook Mastermind Group should only be used for professional purposes.
• Your subscription gives you permission to use IDX+ on your site for a finite period defined in the license terms. Do not attempt to copy, distribute, reverse engineer, or make derivative works based on our intellectual property.
• You may not use this Site or our products and services to abuse, harass, or defame anyone.
• You may not use this Site or our products and services to do anything unlawful, misleading, malicious, or discriminatory.

• You may not use IDX+ to violate anyone’s intellectual property rights.
We have no obligation to monitor the Site, but we can, and we may remove anything that a User posts for any or no reason. Allowing a User to use IDX+ is not an endorsement by Talega of that User’s skills, qualifications, or expected performance. Users are not employees, independent contractors, or agents for us.
3. IDX+ Plugin Subscription
The IDX+ plugin is available by subscription only, by purchasing a license. Please see our Buy Now page for our current offers. Payments are processed using Stripe, PayPal, and Easy Digital Downloads. At the end of your subscription period, you will need to renew your subscription to continue to receive updates and support. If you do not renew your subscription, you may continue to use IDX+ on your site, but you will not be eligible to receive updates or support until you purchase another subscription. Without updates, your version of IDX+ may fail to perform properly due to conflicts with new versions of WordPress and/or other plugins. By purchasing an IDX+ subscription for a license, you agree to abide by these sites’ terms as well. We never have access to your credit card information.
We reserve the right to modify or discontinue any license at any time. Prices of all products and services are subject to change at any time.
Subscriptions can be canceled at any time. We will consider issuing a refund if requested within the first fifteen days after purchasing a license.
4. IDX+ Plugin License
By purchasing a license to use the IDX+ plugin, you will be granted a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicenseable, subscription-based license to use this plug-in on the number of websites indicated in your license. This license is intended to be used solely on the license holder’s website(s). You may not resell or distribute your IDX+ plugin license. The license key is only transferable by contacting us and requesting an official transfer of the license to a new owner. Transfers are subject to a $100 license transfer fee per activated site. The license expiration date is defined in your license terms. With the purchase of any license from Talega, you grant Talega the right to monitor use of its licenses at any time without notice.
The license for support and updates is separate from the license for the plugin itself. The support and updates license is also limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicenseable, subscription-based. You may not resell or share access to your support license key.
Technical support is available to Users who purchase support services from us. All requests for support and maintenance assistance must be submitted through our Forums.
Talega makes no promises or guarantees regarding the time needed to resolve support issues. IDX+ support issues involve many components, including WordPress and dsIDXpress, which may require significant time to research, analyze, test, and release updates.
Users must deactivate all plugins on their site except dsIDXpress and IDX+ prior to submitting a support request to determine if another plugin is causing problems with IDX+.
Users may not post content from the support Forums on any external websites, except for the IDX+ Facebook Mastermind Group.
