TREB Data Access Suspended | Part 4

2 min read · Written Oct 5, 2020 · By Jack

Hi everyone. Hope you are all keeping well.

It's been exactly 2 months since our data access was suspended, and it's time for an update.

We submitted our response to TREB's complaint last month. It is currently under review.

Today TREB told us that we should expect to hear the outcome of the review before the end of this month.

There are 2 possible outcomes:

  1. The review process will finish at this stage, we might have to take some repercussions, but we will be allowed to resume operations.
  2. The review process will go to a 'hearing'.

If the review process goes to the 'hearing', then that will probably take a few more months. Yeah I know, that's gonna suck. But we do have high hopes that it won't go to that.

To clear up some confusion regarding the reason for the suspension. The reason our data access got suspended was because our site had some non-compliance issues, such as sold data being displayed without a password and our Terms of Use missing details. There was also some misunderstanding over our business model.

The reason for the suspension wasn't due to publishing sold data, and I don't think TREB wants to take sold data away.

Hopefully we can avoid the 'hearing'. If it comes to that, then things looks grim.
