10. CHANGES AND NOTICE.
COMPENSATION DISCLOSURE POLICY
YOU SHOULD ALWAYS CONDUCT YOUR OWN INVESTIGATION (PERFORM DUE DILIGENCE) BEFORE BUYING PRODUCTS OR SERVICES FROM ANYONE VIA THE INTERNET. THIS INCLUDES PRODUCTS AND SERVICES SOLD ON THIS WEBSITE AND ALL OTHER WEBSITES.
Unless otherwise expressly stated, you should assume that all references to products and services on REIAssociation.com are made because material connections exist between the website’s owner (“Owner) and the providers of the mentioned products and services (“Provider”).
GOOD FAITH RECOMMENDATIONS
The Owner recommends products and services on REIAssociation.com based in part on a good faith belief that the purchase of such products or services will help purchasers in general. The Owner has this good faith belief because (a) the Owner has tried the product or service mentioned prior to recommending it or (b) the Owner has researched the reputation of the Provider and has made the decision to recommend the Provider’s products or services based on the Provider’s history of providing these or other products or services. The representations made by the Owner about products and services reflect the Owner’s honest opinion based upon the facts known to the Owner at the time a product or service is mentioned on REIAssociation.com.
POTENTIAL BIAS AND DUE DILIGENCE
The Owner’s opinion about a product or service may be partially formed (consciously or subconsciously) in part based on the fact that the Owner has been compensated or will be compensated because of the Owner’s business relationships with the Providers.
In some instances, the Owner and a Provider will have a business or personal relationship that does not involve the Owner receiving compensation related to products and services mentioned on REIAssociation.com. However, the nature of the relationship is sufficient to establish a material connection between the Owner and the Provider.
Because there is a material connection between the Owner and Providers of products or services mentioned on REIAssociation.com, you should always assume that the Owner may be biased because of the Owner’s relationship with a Provider and/or because the Owner has received or will receive something of value from a Provider.
Perform your own due diligence before purchasing a product or service mentioned on REIAssociation.com (or any other website).
The type of compensation received by the Owner may vary. In some instances, the Owner may receive complimentary products, services, or money from a Provider prior to mentioning the Provider’s products or services on REIAssociation.com.
In other instances, the Owner may receive a monetary commission or non-monetary compensation when you take action based on the content of REIAssociation.com. This includes, but is not limited to, when you purchase a product or service from a Provider after clicking on an affiliate link on REIAssociation.com.

Association© Membership, and that we have not authorized any such projection, promise, or representation by others.
Any earnings or income statements, or any earnings or income examples, are only estimates of what we think you could earn. There is no assurance you will do as well as stated in any examples.

Any and all claims or representations as to income or earnings (whether monetary or advertising credits, whether convertible to cash or not) are not to be considered as “average earnings”.
The economy, both where you do business, and on a national and even worldwide scale, create additional uncertainty and economic risk. An economic recession or depression might negatively affect the results produced by R.E.I. Association©.
YOUR SUCCESS OR LACK OF IT
Your success in using the information or strategies provided at REIAssociation.com depends on a variety of factors. We have no way of knowing how well you will do, as we do not know you, your background, your work ethic, your dedication, your motivation, your desire, or your business skills or practices. Therefore, we do not guarantee or imply that you will get rich, that you will do as well, or that you will have any earnings (whether monetary or advertising credits, whether convertible to cash or not), at all.
Businesses and earnings derived there from, involve unknown risks and are not suitable for everyone. You may not rely on any information presented on the website or otherwise provided by us, unless you do so with the knowledge and understanding that you can experience significant losses (including, but not limited to, the loss of any monies paid to purchase an R.E.I. Association© Membership, and/or any monies spent setting up, operating, and/or marketing R.E.I. Association©, and further, that you may have no earnings at all (whether monetary or advertising credits, whether convertible to cash or not).

You should consult with your own attorney on any legal questions you may have.
We assume no responsibility for any losses or damages resulting from your use of any link, information, or opportunity contained within the website or within any information disclosed by the owner of this site in any form whatsoever.
Although we believe the price is fair for the value that you receive, you understand and agree that the purchase price for an R.E.I. Association© Membership has been arbitrarily set by us. This price bears no relationship to objective standards.
TESTIMONIALS, CASE STUDIES & EXAMPLES
Testimonials, case studies, and examples found at REIAssociation.com are exceptional results, do not reflect the typical purchaser’s experience, don’t apply to the average person and are not intended to represent or guarantee that anyone will achieve the same or similar results.

However, you should always perform due diligence and not take such results at face value. We are not responsible for any errors or omissions in typical results information supplied to us by manufacturers or other reputable third parties.
Where specific income or earnings (whether monetary or advertising credits, whether convertible to cash or not), figures are used and attributed to a specific individual or business, that individual or business has earned that amount. There is no assurance that you will do as well using the same information or strategies. If you rely on the specific income or earnings figures used, you must accept all the risk of not doing as well. The described experiences are atypical. Your financial results are likely to differ from those described in the testimonials.
