Along with the other eligibility requirements set forth above, access to certain aspects of the Service is contingent upon registering for an account on the Site. You may elect to register for an account on the Site to use the Service, at your sole discretion, but failure to register for an account will limit the Service you will be able to access and use.
If you do not register for the Service, you may still visit the Site and use certain general features of the Service (such as, for example, browsing the homepage) but not the most advanced features, like scheduling a tour (Tour) of a property for rent. Even if you do not register for an account, your use of the Site and any portion of the Service will still be subject to these Terms of Service.
