  1. The Site Is A Venue
    1. 1.1    PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT WE ARE NOT A PARTY TO ANY HIRING OR RENTAL TRANSACTION. We do not own nor can we contract for vacation rentals listed on the Site. Instead, the Site acts as a venue to allow a member of our Site (each, a “ member”) to offer for rent, or rent, in a variety of pricing formats, a specific vacation rental property to potential renters (each, a “user” and, collectively with a member, the “ users”). We are not involved in the actual transaction between users and members even though we may from time to time provide tools, such as direct booking, that enable a user to enter into a transaction to lease a specific property directly from the member of that property. As a result, the quality, safety or legality of the properties advertised the truth or accuracy of the listings (including the content thereof or any property or guest book review), the ability of members to rent all types of halls or the ability of users to pay for hall properties are solely the responsibility of each user.
  2. Personal Use.
    1. 2.1    Although we do charge a fee to interested members to advertise their vacation rentals & related properties on the Site, we do not charge users to access the Site and research listings. Accordingly, we grant users a limited, revocable, non-exclusive license to access the Site to, as applicable, advertise vacation rentals & related properties and/or research, view or make legitimate inquiries to members regarding their interest in particular vacation rental properties for their personal use, all in accordance with these Terms.
      Any other use of the Site is expressly prohibited. Importantly, this license does not include any right of collection, aggregation, copying, duplication, display or derivative use of the Site nor any right of use of data mining, robots, spiders or similar data gathering and extraction tools without our prior written permission; provided, however, that a limited exception from the foregoing exclusion is provided to general purpose internet search engines and non-commercial public archives that use tools to gather information for the sole purpose of displaying hyperlinks to the Site, provided they each do so from a stable IP address or range of IP addresses using an easily identifiable agent and comply with our robots.txt file. “General purpose internet search engine” does not include a website or search engine or other service that provide classified listings or property rental advertisements, or any subset of the same, or which is in the business of providing vacation property rental services.
