Landlord Terms of Use


These Terms of Use were last updated on December 13, 2022.

By accessing and using (the “Guesst Platform”), you are agreeing to be legally bound by these Terms of Use, individually, on behalf of your organization, and on behalf of all users accessing and using the Guesst Platform through your company’s account (“Authorized Users”).

1. General

The Guesst Platform allows you, as a property owner, licensor, owner, franchisor, asset manager, landlord, lessor, vendor and/or investor, to receive selected data from your tenants, licensees, occupiers, franchisees, vendors, lessees, and borrowers (“Data Providers”) so you can calculate payments from your Data Providers; share documentation with your Data Providers; receive rent payments; and manage certain other aspects of your business.  By the terms of your lease, license or other agreement (your “Agreement”) with your Data Provider, you agree to upload to the Guesst Platform the formulae used to calculate certain sums owed to you by Data Provider under your Agreement. You agree to provide to Guesst any information requested by Guesst that is necessary to  the operation of the Guesst Platform and the calculation of amounts owed to you by Data Provider, including without limitation providing such information about the leased premises (the “Premises”) (including without limitation taxes and fees) as may be necessary for Guesst to calculate the Percentage Rent from the Net Sales.  The terms “Percentage Rent” and “Net Sales” shall have the meanings given to such terms in your Agreement.

Notwithstanding anything in these Terms of Use, in no event shall these Terms of Use supersede the terms of your Agreement.  In the event of a conflict between the calculation of Tenant’s Net Sales or the Percentage Rent by the Guesst Platform and the calculation of Tenant’s Net Sales or the Percentage Rent pursuant to your Agreement, the calculation pursuant to your Agreement shall prevail.

In the event that you have entered into any other agreement with Guesst regarding the provision of services (the “Guesst Service Agreement”) and there is a conflict between the terms of the Guesst Service Agreement and these Terms of Use, the terms of the Guesst Service Agreement shall control. 

When you accept these Terms of Use, you acknowledge and agree that each time you add a Data Provider, Premises, or Authorized User, you reaffirm your acceptance of these Terms of Use.

2. Modifications to Terms of Use

Guesst may change any term in these Terms of Use at any time.  The changes will appear in these Terms of Use, and your use of the Guesst Platform after any changes have been posted will constitute your agreement to the modified Terms of Use and all of the changes.  Your continued use of the Guesst Platform after such changes are posted will constitute your acceptance of these changes.  Therefore, you should read these Terms of Use each time you access the Guesst Platform, before you begin using the Guesst Platform.  You may print a copy of these Terms of Use for your reference.  You may not use the Guesst Platform for any unlawful purpose or any purpose not approved by Guesst.
