You should read through all the Terms carefully. The Terms constitute a legally binding agreement between you and the Company.

The Site is a Neutral Venue and We are Not a Party to any License Agreement, Booking Agreement, Rental Agreement or other Transaction Between Users of the Site. We urge all users to be responsible about their use of this Site and any transaction entered into as a result of either listing a property or booking a property. We do not own or manage, nor can we contract for, any property listed on a Site. The Site acts as a venue to allow property owners and their representatives (“members” or “users”) who advertise on the Site to offer one or more of their properties to be booked by guests (“guests” or “users”), as well as a way for users to communicate with one another and enter into booking agreements or similar transactions. Because we are not a party to any license, booking, rental or other agreement between members and guests, any part of an actual or potential transaction between a member and a user, including the quality, condition, safety or legality of the properties advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings (including the content thereof or any review relating to any property), and the ability of members to license or rent a property or the ability of guests to contract for properties, are solely the responsibility of the users. We shall not, by reason of your use of this Site or otherwise, be deemed to be your employee or agent, and we shall have no power to enter into any agreement on your behalf or bind you. Neither the Company nor any of its affiliates entities, shareholders, members, directors, employees, agents or representatives are acting or are licensed as real estate brokers or real estate salespersons.

Members further agree that they are responsible for and agree to abide by all laws, rules and regulations applicable to the listing of their property and the conduct of licensing their property, including but not limited to any and all laws, rules, regulations or other requirements relating to taxes, credit cards, data and privacy, taxes, permits or license requirements, zoning ordinances, safety compliance and compliance with all anti-discrimination and fair housing laws, as applicable. Please be aware that, even though we are not a party to any booking or other transaction and assume no liability for legal or regulatory compliance pertaining to properties listed on the Site, there may be circumstances where we are nevertheless legally obligated (as we may determine in our sole discretion) to provide information relating to a listing in order to comply with governmental bodies in relation to investigations, litigation or administrative proceedings, and we may choose to comply with or disregard such obligation in our sole discretion. Members who accept credit card, banking or other payment information from guests agree to properly handle and safeguard all such information in accordance with applicable legal and regulatory requirements and best practices.

Attn: Copyright Agent
In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, the Company has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at the Company's sole discretion, users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. The Company may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Site and/or terminate the accounts of any users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
Each user acknowledges and agrees that, regardless of such user’s physical location, we may store and process any data transmitted to the Site from such user at locations both within and outside of the United States.
In the event that you use any of our tools that we may from time to time offer that integrate in any way with a third party website to which you have provided data or information, you acknowledge and agree that such third party website shall be responsible for how the data or information you have provided to such website is handled.
Identity Verification. User verification on the Internet is difficult and we cannot, and do not assume any responsibility for, the confirmation of each user's purported identity. We encourage you to communicate directly with a guest or member through the tools available on the Site, though even this does not assure you of the identity of the person with which you are communicating. We further encourage you to take other reasonable measures to assure yourself of the other person’s identity and, for guests, of the property and relevant details of your booking or proposed booking.
You agree to (i) keep your password and online ID for both your account with us and your email account secure and strictly confidential, providing it only to authorized users of your accounts, (ii) instruct each person to whom you give your online ID and password that he or she is not to disclose it to any unauthorized person, (iii) notify us immediately and select a new online ID and password if you believe your password for either your account with us or your email account may have become known to an unauthorized person, and (iv) notify us immediately if you are contacted by anyone requesting your online ID and password. Further, if we suspect any unauthorized access to your account, upon our request, you agree to promptly change your ID and password and take any other related action as we may reasonably request.
We discourage you from giving anyone access to your online ID and password for your account with us and your email account. However, if you do give someone your online ID and online password, or if you fail to adequately safeguard such information, you are responsible for any and all transactions that the person performs while using your account with us or your email account, even those transactions that are fraudulent or that you did not intend or want performed.
EACH USER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT: (1) NEITHER THE COMPANY NOR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES WILL HAVE ANY LIABILITY TO ANY USER FOR ANY UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTION MADE USING ANY USER’S ID OR PASSWORD; AND (2) THE UNAUTHORIZED USE OF YOUR ONLINE ID AND PASSWORD FOR YOUR COMPANY ACCOUNT OR YOUR EMAIL ACCOUNT COULD CAUSE YOU TO INCUR LIABILITY TO BOTH THE COMPANY AND OTHER USERS. Further, we may, without notice to you, suspend or cancel your listing at any time even without receiving notice from you if we suspect, in our sole discretion, that your account with us or your email account is being used in an unauthorized or fraudulent manner.
Limitations on Communications and Use of Other Users’ Information; No Spam.
You agree that, with respect to other users' personal information that you obtain directly or indirectly from or through the Site or through any Site-related communication, transaction or software, we have granted to you a license to use such information only for: (a) Site-related communications that are not unsolicited commercial messages, (b) using services offered through the Site, and (c) inquiring about or otherwise facilitating a transaction between you and the other user related to the purpose of the Site (such as inquiring about or booking an online booking or charging a personal credit card). Any other purpose will require express permission from the user. You may not use any such information for any unlawful purpose or with any unlawful intent.
In all cases, you must give users an opportunity to remove their information from your address book or database or other records and a chance to review what information you have collected about them. In addition, under no circumstances, except as defined in this provision, may you disclose personal information about another user to any third party without both our consent and the consent of the other user. You agree that other users may use your personal information to communicate with you in accordance with this provision. Further, you agree that you will protect other users’ personal information with the same degree of care that you protect your own confidential information (using at minimum a reasonable standard of care), and you assume all liability for the misuse, loss, or unauthorized transfer of such information.
We do not tolerate spam or unsolicited commercial electronic communications of any kind. Therefore, without limiting the foregoing, you are not licensed to add a Site user, even a user who has booked a property from you or to you, to your mailing list (email or physical mail) without the user's express consent.
