The Site, Application and Services together are hereinafter collectively referred to as the “Our Platform”.
When these Terms mention “Web Site” “we,” “us,” or “our,” it refers to the our company you are contracting with.
Any and all payment processing services through or in connection with your use of our Platform (“Payment Services“) are provided to you by one or more Payments entities (individually and collectively, as appropriate, “Payments“) as set out in the Payments Terms of Service (“Payments Terms“).
- Scope of our Web Site Services
1.1 Our Platform is an online marketplace that enables registered users (“Members”) and certain third parties who offer services (Members and third parties who offer services are “Hosts” and the services they offer are “Host Services”) to publish such Host Services on our Platform (“Listings”) and to communicate and transact directly with Members that are seeking to book such Host Services (Members using Host Services are “Guests”). Host Services may include the offering of vacation or other properties for use (“Accommodations“), single or multi-day activities in various categories (“Experiences”), access to unique events and locations (“Events”), and a variety of other travel and non-travel related services.
1.2 As the provider, Our Platform, does not own, create, sell, resell, provide, control, manage, offer, deliver, or supply any Listings or Host Services, nor is an organiser or retailer of travel packages under Directive (EU) 2015/2302. Hosts alone are responsible for their Listings and Host Services. When Members make or accept a booking, they are entering into a contract directly with each other. We are not and does not become a party to or other participant in any contractual relationship between Members, nor we are a real estate broker or insurer. We are not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Member, except as specified in the Payments Terms
1.3 While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, we have no control over and does not guarantee (i) the existence, quality, safety, suitability, or legality of any Listings or Host Services, (ii) the truth or accuracy of any Listing descriptions, Ratings, Reviews, or other Member Content (as defined below), or (iii) the performance or conduct of any Member or third party. We do not endorse any Member, Listing or Host Services. Any references to a Member being “verified” (or similar language) only indicate that the Member has completed a relevant verification or identification process and nothing else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by us about any Member, including of the Member’s identity or background or whether the Member is trustworthy, safe or suitable. You should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to stay in an Accommodation, participate in an Experience or Event or use other Host Services, accept a booking request from a Guest, or communicate and interact with other Members, whether online or in person. Verified Images (as defined below) are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of a Listing at the time the photograph was taken, and are therefore not an endorsement by us of any Host or Listing.
1.4 If you choose to use Our Platform as a Host or Co-Host (as defined below), your relationship with us is limited to being an independent, third-party contractor, and not an employee, agent, joint venturer or a partner with us for any reason, and you act exclusively on your own behalf and for your own benefit, and not on behalf, or for the benefit, of us. We do not, and shall not be deemed to, direct or control you generally or in your performance under these Terms specifically, including in connection with your provision of the Host Services. You acknowledge and agree that you have complete discretion whether to list Host Services or otherwise engage in other business or employment activities.
1.5 To promote Our Platform and to increase the exposure of Listings to potential Guests, Listings and other Member Content may be displayed on other websites, in applications, within emails, and in online and offline advertisements. To assist Members who speak different languages, Listings and other Member Content may be translated, in whole or in part, into other languages. We cannot guarantee the accuracy or quality of such translations and Members are responsible for reviewing and verifying the accuracy of such translations. Our Platform may contain translations powered by Google. Google disclaims all warranties related to the translations, express or implied, including any warranties of accuracy, reliability, and any implied warranties for merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.
1.6 Our Platform may contain links to third-party websites or resources (“Third-Party Services”). Such Third-Party Services may be subject to different terms and conditions and privacy practices. We are not responsible or liable for the availability or accuracy of such Third-Party Services, or the content, products, or services available from such Third-Party Services. Links to such Third-Party Services are not an endorsement by us of such Third-Party Services.
1.7 Due to the nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee the continuous and uninterrupted availability and accessibility of Our Platform. We may restrict the availability of Our Platform or certain areas or features thereof, if this is necessary in view of capacity limits, the security or integrity of our servers, or to carry out maintenance measures that ensure the proper or improved functioning of Our Platform. We may improve, enhance and modify our Platform and introduce new Services from time to time.
