NEW ENGLAND REAL ESTATE NETWORK NEREN COMPLIANCE
1) IDX data may only be displayed on a NEREN members site and branded as such, with no co-branding.
Participant Internet Electronic Display Site(s) used for display of the
IDX Database or any portion thereof must be under the Actual and
Apparent Control of the IDX Participant and be advertised as that IDXP’s
This is an important limitation on third party
Consultants’ building Sites for IDXPs. In order to participate in
Internet Data Exchange, a Site must be advertised, marketed and branded
as the IDXP’s Site.
“Actual Control” means that the IDX
Participant has either built the Participant Internet Electronic Display
Site(s) for his/her own use with internal resources or obtained
technology for the Site under an agreement with a third party Consultant
that provides the IDX Participant final control over the operations of
the Site. The identity of the registered owner of the URL in which the
publication of IDX is being displayed can be given consideration in
determining if the Site is actually controlled by the IDX Participant.
Control” means that a reasonable consumer viewing the Participant
Internet Electronic Display Site(s) would conclude that it is under the
control of the IDX Participant. When examining the issue of Apparent
Control some (but not all) factors that will be considered include: that
the IDX Participant's branding is significantly more prominent than,
and above that, of any other entity, that the Site is not co-branded,
and that the domain name and overall branding on the Site distinguishes
the IDX Participant from non-participating firms or franchisors, or
other third parties. Advertising (including co-branding) on pages
displaying an IDX-provided listing is prohibited.
2) Attribution must be given to the listing agent, listing office and selling office.
following rule has been incorporated into NEREN’s Internet Data
Exchange Package and adherence is required to conform to IDX Policy:
a. The listing office must be identified on any listing.
b. The listing agent must be identified on any active or active with contract listing.
c. The selling office must be identified on any closed listing.
above required information must appear on the first page on which any
listing data is displayed (other than an index page). The names must be
in a readily visible color and the typeface/font may not be smaller
than the typical typeface/font being used in the display of the listing
A viewer should not have to scroll vertically or horizontally
in order to see the above required attribution when the listing is
viewed on a common desktop computer screen.
3) No modifying of IDX data.
Participants are strictly prohibited from modifying the data in the IDX
Database from another IDX Participant. This could include displaying
other data alongside another IDXP’s data.
For example: if an IDXP
geocodes the listings on his/her Site, and then ties demographic or
other data to them, the IDXP will want to be cautious about displaying
such data on the same screen as another IDXP’s listings. An IDX
Participant should make efforts to distinguish the data he/she has
supplied from the IDX Database data. Segregating such data
“geographically” on the screen and including a credit in the non-IDX
data (such as “Demographic data courtesy of ABC Title Company”) would be
a good way to accomplish this.
4) NEREN's disclaimer and logo must be used.
each and every page of an IDX Participant’s Internet Electronic Display
Site(s)”, on which NEREN data is displayed, (other than a page
displaying thumbnails or index of listings), the following NEREN
copyright notice must appear and the IDX Participant must display the
notice on any detailed listing data of another IDXP.
This notice must appear exactly:
