Censored Version of Review of Agreement between CZ Master Association and dwellingLIVE


Published on

The CZ Master Association has threatened to take legal action if we keep a copy of the actual contract online - so we have now taken it temporarily down (CENSORED) and are planing to inform CZ that the CENSORED portion will remain as long as a) the association agrees to issue an apology to the CZ residents for breach of trust, b) the association prominently instructs residents that the use of the new website compromises their privacy and c) the association agrees to comply with the spirit and the law of the Information Protection Act.

A definitive conclusion from a cursory review of the Agreement between CZ Master Association and dwelingLIVE clearly is that the agreements reflects poorly on everyone involved including Keystone, legal counsel and the CZ Master board of directors. No wonder the association insists that on legal counsel's advice " under Civil Code Section 1365.2, a member is entitled to a copy of "executed contracts," not otherwise privileged. Thus, you are not entitled to the statement of work, bids, or selection criteria, which are executive session privileged documents" - Refer to http://www.atwebo.com/cotobuzz/2009/CZ/CotoCZWebsiteContract.htm

Censored Version of Review of Agreement between CZ Master Association and dwellingLIVE

  1. 1. A brief review of the Agreement between CZ Master Association and dwelingLIVE   Overview A definitive conclusion from a  cursory review of the  Agreement between CZ Master Association and  dwelingLIVE clearly is that the agreements reflects poorly on everyone involved including Keystone, legal counsel and the CZ Master board of directors. No  wonder the association insists that on legal counsel's  advice  " under Civil Code Section 1365.2, a member is  entitled to a copy of "executed contracts," not otherwise  privileged.  Thus, you are not entitled to the statement of  work, bids, or selection criteria, which are executive session  privileged documents"   The description of work is so poorly done, that it clearly fails  to address California’s Information Practices Act, for  example   No evidence available that there is a compelling argument  to switch over to a fourth website in five years: either  because the quality of service significantly improves, costs  are significantly reduces or because security enhancement  were added.  Quite the contrary.
  2. 2. Payment Or Payola? Exhibit B describes a recurring charge for the website of  $10,000 per year in addition to consumables such as  thermal guest passes and transponders.  My previous  investigation into the cost of the thermal passes reveals a  cost of around $125,000 per year.   Additionally, dwelingLIVE is granted permission to contract  with third parties to place advertising on the associations  website.  The website’s monthly cost of $995.00 is reduced   “by the gross amount of any compensation Contractor  receives..If Contractor receives other than a monetary form  of compensation for any advertising place placed on  Association’s website, then the parties shall reasonably  cooperate it assign a monetary value to said nonmonetary  compensation..”
  3. 3. Inconsistencies a freshman paralegal can detect: Article 23 of the agreement states that “Each party acknowledges that is has  been given the opportunity to have its independent counsel review this  Agreement prior to executing it. Article 12 states in part “Contractor shall not, without the express written  consent of Association, permit any Confidential Information concerning any  residents in the community to be: (i) used for any solicitation purpose, (ii) used  for any commercial purpose, or (iii) given, sold, or purchased by any person or  entity”. However, Exhibit B states that it is up to the discretion of the CZ Master  Association the content of the website.  The terms and conditions for use of the  website include the following: (a) TRAFFIC DATA COLLECTED.

  4. 4. CIVIL CODE SECTION 1798-1798.1 1798.1. The Legislature declares that the right to privacy is a personal and fundamental right protected by Section 1 of Article I of the Constitution of California and by the United States Constitution and that all individuals have a right of privacy in information pertaining to them. The Legislature further makes the following findings: (a) The right to privacy is being threatened by the indiscriminate collection, maintenance, and dissemination of personal information and the lack of effective laws and legal remedies. (b) The increasing use of computers and other sophisticated information technology has greatly magnified the potential risk to individual privacy that can occur from the maintenance of personal information. (c) In order to protect the privacy of individuals, it is necessary that the maintenance and dissemination of personal information be subject to strict limits.
