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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

WHEREAS, the Member has promoted the Property as available for temporary occupancy for the "Occupancy Period" (as defined on the Booking Page); and
WHEREAS, the Guest desires to rent the Property (the "Reservation") for the period of time during which the Guest desires to occupy the Property (the "Occupancy Period").
NOW, THEREFORE, the Parties agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement as they relate to the Reservation of the Property during the Occupancy Period.
Term of the Reservation. The Reservation shall commence at [___] (the "Check-In Time") on the first date of the Occupancy Period and shall terminate at [___] (the "Check-Out Time") on the final day of the Occupancy Period, unless otherwise terminated by the Guest pursuant to Section 2 of this Agreement.

Guest acknowledges that the Member has, in entering into this Agreement, incurred significant costs, including but not limited to those costs incurred in preparation of the Property for the Occupancy Period, and has foregone the opportunity to offer the Property to a guest other than the Guest during the Occupancy period. Considering these costs incurred, in the event of a Cancellation, the Member shall be entitled to retain any or all of the Fees already paid by the Guest, subject to any understanding to the contrary contained on the Booking Page.
By entering into this Agreement, Guest agrees that any Fees collected and retained by Member in connection with the Reservation are the property of the Member, and Guest therefore further agrees not to chargeback any Fees collected by Member. In the event that Guest violates this Section 3(d), Guest agrees that Member shall be entitled to recover the amount subject to the Guest’s chargeback, and any fees incurred by Member in connection with enforcement of this Section 3(d), including but not limited to processing fees and legal fees (collectively "Chargeback Expenses") by charging (or having charged) an amount equal to such Chargeback Expenses to Guest’s credit card initially use for paying Fees.
The Guest will not be entitled to, and will not receive any refund of Fees for any period of inclement weather (i) overlapping the Occupancy Period, (ii) interfering with Guest’s ability to reach the Property during the Occupancy Period, or (ii) causing the Guest to abandon the Property prior to the conclusion of the Occupancy Period.

The Parties hereto understand and agree that, from and after the Effective Date, any and all claims, grievances, demands, controversies, causes of action or disputes of any nature whatsoever (hereinafter "Disputes"), arising out of, in connection with, or in relation to (a) this Agreement, or (b) questions of arbitrability under this Agreement, shall be resolved by final, binding, nonjudicial arbitration in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Section 1, et seq. pursuant to the following procedures:
Any Party may send another Party or Parties written notice identifying the matter in dispute and invoking the procedures of this Section 9 (the "Dispute Notice"). Within fourteen (14) days from delivery of the Dispute Notice, each Party involved in the dispute shall meet at a mutually agreed location in New York, New York, for the purpose of determining whether they can resolve the dispute themselves by written agreement, and, if not, whether they can agree upon an impartial third-party arbitrator (the "Arbitrator") to whom to submit the matter in dispute for final and binding arbitration.
If such Parties fail to resolve the dispute by written agreement or agree on the Arbitrator within the later of fourteen (14) days from any such initial meeting or within thirty (30) days from the delivery of the Dispute Notice, any such Party may make written application to the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services ("JAMS") in New York City, New York for the appointment of a single Arbitrator to resolve the dispute by arbitration. At the request of JAMS the Parties involved in the dispute shall meet with JAMS at its offices within ten (10) calendar days of such request to discuss the dispute and the qualifications and experience which each Party respectively believes the Arbitrator should have; provided, however, that the selection of the Arbitrator shall be the exclusive decision of JAMS and shall be made within thirty (30) days of the written application to JAMS.
Within thirty (30) days of the selection of the Arbitrator, the Parties involved in the dispute shall meet in New York City, New York, with such Arbitrator at a place and time designated by such Arbitrator after consultation with such Parties and present their respective positions on the dispute. Each Party shall have no longer than one (1) day to present its position, the entire proceeding before the Arbitrator shall be no more than three (3) consecutive days, and the decision of the Arbitrator shall be made in writing no more than thirty (30) days following the end of the proceeding. Such an award shall be a final and binding determination of the dispute and shall be fully enforceable as an arbitration decision in any court having jurisdiction and venue over such parties. The prevailing Party or Parties (as determined by the Arbitrator) shall in addition be awarded by the Arbitrator such Party’s or Parties’ own legal fees and expenses in connection with such proceeding. The non-prevailing Party or Parties (as determined by the Arbitrator) shall pay the Arbitrator’s fees and expenses.
Holdovers. For each calendar day that any Visitor remains at the Property beyond the Occupancy Period (including the final day of the Occupancy Period, after Check-Out Time), the Guest agrees to pay additional fees equal to the daily Reservation Fee for the Property, multiplied two (2) (the "Holdover Fees") and authorizes the Member or Marquis to charge Holdover Fees to the Reservation Card.
Force Majeure. Neither Member nor Marquis shall be liable for any default or delay in the performance of its responsibilities under the Agreement if and to the extent such default or delay is caused, directly or indirectly, by fire, flood, hurricane, earthquake, ocean phenomena, drought, elements of nature or acts of God, riots, strikes, civil disorders, quarantine restrictions, epidemics, pandemics, or any other cause beyond the reasonable control of such party ("Force Majeure"). If it appears that the Force Majeure will prevent or result in a delay in a Guest, acting reasonably, from having normal use of the Property or will prevent the Member from performing its obligations under this Agreement, all payments for any unused portion of the rental will be refunded to Guest.
Keys. Guest will be provided with either an access code for the Property, or one or more keys to the Property. Upon conclusion of the Occupancy period, Guest shall return any keys as instructed in the House Policies. Costs to replace lost keys will be treated as Property Damages, in accordance with Section 6(d).
Reservation Cancellation. The Parties acknowledge and agree that upon reasonable determination by Marquis, in its sole discretion, that Member will be unable to satisfy its obligations arising in connection with a Reservation, Marquis may terminate any such Reservation (a "Marquis Termination"). In the event of a Marquis Termination, Guests will receive a full refund of paid Fees and Member and Marquis will be released of all obligations to Guest, inclusive of the obligation to find a replacement Property or Reservation.
Insurance. Member makes no representation as to the existence, or lack thereof, of any insurance policy tied to use of the Property by the Member or the Visitors.
Alterations. Guest shall make no changes or alterations to the Property without the prior written consent of the Member, which consent may be withheld in the Member’s sole discretion. Should Member consent to any changes or alterations, the product of such changes or alterations shall inure to the benefit, and become the property of the Member, to the exclusion of the Guest and the Visitors.
Property Configuration. Member may reconfigure the Property at any time prior to the Occupancy Period, so long as such reconfiguration has no impact on the Occupancy Amount.
Assignment. The Guest may not assign or transfer any of its rights or obligations arising hereunder to any third party without the prior written consent of the Member. The Member may assign or transfer any of its right or obligations arising hereunder to any third party acquiring the Property or any interest therein. Breach of this Section 10(f) by the Guest may, at the sole discretion of the Member, constitute an Early Termination, and any such unauthorized assignment or transfer shall be considered null and void.
Right to Inspection. Member, and its authorized representatives, shall be entitled to enter the Property, at reasonable times, for the purpose of inspecting the Property and making necessary repairs, with or without notice to the Visitors.
Signage. Member may maintain signage at the Property, relating to the Property, and no Visitor shall interfere in any way, shape or form with such signage. Breach of this Section 10(g) by any Visitor may, at the sole discretion of the Member, constitute an Early Termination.
Abandonment. Abandonment of the Property for more than seven (7) consecutive days, or any other period that, considering the surrounding circumstances would cause a reasonable person to presume that the Property was abandoned, during the Occupancy Period may, at the sole discretion of the Member, constitute an Early Termination.
No Landlord-Tenant Relationship. Nothing herein shall be interpreted as to establish a landlord-tenant relationship between the Guest and either Marquis or the Member.
Opportunity to Review. Guest acknowledges that Guest has been provided opportunity to review and ask questions pertaining to this Agreement, which is fundamental to the understanding between the Guest and the Member, and that failure of Guest to either review or ask questions pertaining to this Agreement is a decision made by Guest at its own risk.
Severability. The invalidity of any portion of this Agreement shall not affect the validity, force or effect of the remaining portions of this Agreement. If it is ever held that any restriction hereunder is too broad to permit enforcement of such restriction to its fullest extent, each Party agrees that a court of competent jurisdiction may enforce such restriction to the maximum extent permitted by law, and each party hereby consents and agrees that such scope may be judicially modified accordingly in any proceeding brought to enforce such restriction.
Headings. The section and paragraph headings contained in this Agreement are for reference purposes only and shall not affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement.
Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York, without reference to choice of law principles, including matters of construction, validity and performance. Venue for any dispute arising in connection with this Agreement shall be the state or federal courts in New York County, New York.
Amendment. This Agreement may be amended, modified or supplemented only by a written agreement signed by all the Parties hereto.
Waiver. The failure of either Party at any time to require performance by the other party of any provision hereof shall in no way affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter. Nor shall the waiver by either Party of a breach of any provision hereof be a waiver of any succeeding breach of the same or any other such provisions or be a waiver of the provision itself.
