Terms & Conditions

Last updated: June 5, 2019

Please read these Terms and Conditions (“Terms”, “Terms and Conditions”) carefully before using the www.apartmentsthatgive.com website (the “Website”) or participating in the Give & Give Back residential referral services program (the “Promotion” as described below and administered by Blue Tie, LLC, an Ohio limited liability company (“Blue Tie”, or “us”). The Website and Promotion are collectively referred to as Blue Tie “Services.”

Your access to and use of Services is conditioned upon your acceptance of, and compliance with these Terms and Conditions. By accessing or using the Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of these Terms, you do not have permission to access or use the Services and should immediately discontinue the use thereof.

The Services

Blue Tie administers residential referral service promotions on behalf of the apartment communities listed on the Website (each a “Community” and collectively the “Communities”). Through the Promotion, residents of a Community may refer a friend to lease an apartment by providing the name and email address of the friend to the Community office. The referred friend will then receive a promotional flyer about the Community from us (a “Flyer”). By submitting the name and email address of a friend, the referring resident (“Referring Resident”) represents and warrants to Blue Tie and the Community that he/she is authorized on behalf of the friend to submit the name and email address of the friend for purposes of the Promotion. If the referred friend ultimately signs a lease and moves into the Community, the Referring Resident shall be eligible for the following incentives (collectively, the “Referral Incentive”):

  • To select and receive a gift card to a restaurant, store or service provider of the Referring Resident’s choice from those available through the Promotion at the dollar amount set by the Community and advertised in the Flyer (e.g., $150, $200, etc.); and

  • To designate a 501(c)(3) charitable organization to receive a donation at the dollar amount set by the Community and advertised in the Flyer (e.g., $150, $200, etc.) in the Referring Resident’s name (to the extent available) by providing the information for such organization to the Community.

The Referring Resident must report the referral to the Community, as well as make all selections of Referral Incentives through the Community office. The Community shall be solely responsible for conducting the Promotion, for determining eligibility for a Referral Incentive, and for funding the Referral Incentive. Blue Tie shall fulfill the selections (e.g., mail gift cards and donations) upon receipt of the funds from the Community. Blue Tie is not the agent of the Communities and shall not be responsible or liable for any act or omission by the Community in conducting the Promotion, including as to any determinations of eligibility for a Referral Incentive. Further, Blue Tie is not the agent of any merchant whose gift cards are made through the Promotion and shall have no liability in connection with any products or service offered or provided by such merchants.

Referring Resident Eligibility

The Services are exclusively available to legal residents of the United States who are eighteen (18) years of age or older. By participating in a Promotion, each Referring Resident represents and warrants that he or she is 18 years of age or older, and that the information he or she provides to Blue Tie is accurate, complete, and current. The Referring Resident also agrees to the terms of Blue Tie’s Privacy Policy as the same is posted on the Website. Inaccurate, incomplete, or obsolete information may result in disqualification of any Referral Incentive.

Community Terms and Conditions

The Communities are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their accounts, including all usernames and passwords. The Communities are responsible for all activities or actions that occur through their accounts and/or with their passwords. The Communities must immediately notify Blue Tie upon becoming aware of any breach of security or unauthorized use of their accounts.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Blue Tie disclaims all other warranties, express or implied in relation to the Services.

Governing Law

If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Blue Tie regarding the Services and supersede and replace any prior agreements regarding the Services.
