to your use of our services at www.nationalhuntingleases.com,
including the Hunting and Fishing Lease Network®. If you have any questions,
please direct them to email@example.com
We may amend this Agreement at any time by posting the
amended terms on our site. Except as stated below, all amended terms shall
automatically become effective 30 days after they are initially posted on our
site. This Agreement may not be otherwise amended except in a written agreement
signed by you and NHLN This agreement was last revised on July 16, 2005.

2. Fees and Services.
There is a $100
fee to list a property for lease on the Hunting Lease Network®. There is no fee to use or submit a bid
to the Hunting Lease Network®.
Once a lease is signed between the landowner and the leasing sportsman,
landowners agree to pay Hunting Lease Network® a fee for its services. NHLN may at its discretion change some or
all of the services, and/or the fees charged therefore, at any time. In the
event we introduce a new service, the fees for that service are effective at
the commencement of the service. Unless otherwise stated, all fees and bids
are quoted in U.S. Dollars. You are responsible for paying all fees
associated with using our service and our website and all applicable taxes.
3. The Hunting Lease Network® is Only a Venue.
Overview. Our site acts as the venue for landowners and
hunters/anglers to reach agreement on a recreational lease of properties. We
have no control over the quality or characteristics of the properties
advertised, the truth or accuracy of the information provided, the ability of
landowners to lease the properties, the ability of the lessor to lease the
property, or the hunting and fishing abilities of lessors who use the lease.
We cannot ensure that a landowner or bidder will actually complete a
Trading. Because user authentication on the Internet is difficult,
NHLN cannot and does not confirm each user's purported identity. You may wish
to consider using another entity of your choice to provide additional user
Release. In the event that you have a dispute with one or more
users, you agree to release NHLN (and
our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, franchises, and employees)
from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and
nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and
undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
3.4 Information Control. We do not control the
information provided by users that is made available through our system. You
may find other user's information to be offensive, harmful, inaccurate, or
deceptive. Please use caution, common sense, and practice safe trading when
using our site. Please note that there are also risks of dealing with
underage persons, or people acting under false pretense. By accepting this
agreement users agree that they will not attempt to contact the owners or
managers of any property in the HLN system, directly or indirectly. Any
fraudulent activity or violations of this rule will result in termination of
registration, a ban on future leasing to the user, and legal action.
4. Bidding, Leasing and Personal Liability Insurance.
4.1 Bidding. By bidding on a property you are
contractually obligated to follow through with full payment within 14 days of
the bid close date. Once your bid
is submitted to the Hunting Lease Network® you are expected to complete the
transaction unless the transaction is prohibited by law or by this Agreement.
By bidding on a property you agree to be bound by the terms included in the
property's description, so long as those conditions are not in violation of
this Agreement or unlawful. Bids are not retractable except in exceptional
circumstances such as when the landowner materially changes or misrepresents
the property's description, a clear typographical error is made, or the
landowner's identity cannot be authenticated. If you choose to bid on a
property, you are certifying that you have the legal right and ability
participate in the transaction as described.
4.2 Personal Liability
Insurance. All lessees are required to carry a minimum of $1,000,000
hunting liability insurance or such other amount as landowner(s) deems
necessary and with respect to Lessee's use of the premises for
hunting/fishing purposes. This insurance may be available through the Hunting
Lease Network®. Proof of such insurance is required and must be provided to
NHLN before lessee is given permission to access the leased property.
Landowners and lessor must be added as additional insured on the policy.
Deposit and Forfeiture. Once your
bid receives final approval from the landowner and Hunting Lease Network®,
you will be contacted via email or telephone. Following that discussion a
lease is drawn up and mailed to you for your signature. Full payment of the
entire lease and required insurance (if applicable) is required when you mail
the signed lease back to us. If the full payment and/or signed lease are not
received in our office within 10 days of mailing from our office, the earnest
deposit is forfeited and the lease immediately goes back on the market.
Lease Cancellations and Forfeiture of Funds. A lessee who fails to obtain the
required insurance, or who defaults in performing any term or condition of
the lease shall be subject to all legal and equitable remedies available to NHLN
and the landowner under the lease or applicable law including, where
applicable, termination of the lease, with or without a refund of rents paid,
denial of access to the premises, collection of damages to person or
property, and attorneys fees and costs incurred by the landlord or NHLN.
4.5 Improvements. Any improvements made to enhance the hunting
and/or fishing lease will be negotiated and agreed upon by Hunting
Lease Network® representatives, the
landowner, and lessee. All improvements, with the exception of personal
property, remain with the land.
Property Descriptions. NHLN may not actually visit all lands posted for
lease on our site. Property descriptions may only include those property
descriptions supplied to us.
Bids. If landowners receive a bid at or above the minimum
acceptable bid as in the management agreement, they are expected to complete
the transaction, unless there is an exceptional circumstance, such as: (a)
the tenant fails to meet the conditions of your description, or (b) NHLN
cannot authenticate the lessees identity.
Fraud. Without limiting any other remedies, NHLN may suspend or
terminate your registration if you are found (by conviction, settlement,
insurance, investigation, or otherwise) to have engaged in fraudulent
