How the Site, Application and Services Work
The Site, Application and Services can be used to facilitate the listing and booking of Bed and Breakfast properties ("Accommodations"). Such Accommodations are included in Listings on the Site, Application and Services by Hosts. You may view Listings as an unregistered visitor to the Site, Application and Services; however, if you wish to book an Accommodation or create a Listing, you must first register to create an BnbNation Account (defined below).
As stated above, BnBNation makes available a platform or marketplace with related technology for Guests and Hosts to meet online and arrange for bookings of BnB Accommodations. BnBNation is not an owner or operator of properties, including, but not limited to, BnB Accommodations, nor is it a provider of properties, including, but not limited to, BnB Accommodations and BnBNation does not own, sell, resell, furnish, provide, rent, re-rent, manage and/or control properties, including, but not limited to, BnB Accommodations or transportation or travel services and BnBNation's role is solely to facilitate the availability of the Site, Application and Services. Similarly, BnBNation is not a contracting agent or representative of any Host. Instead, BnBNation's role is solely to facilitate the availability of the Site, Application and Services for Members and to provide services related thereto.
PLEASE NOTE THAT, AS STATED ABOVE, THE SITE, APPLICATION AND SERVICES ARE INTENTED TO BE USED TO FACILIATE THE BOOKING OF ACCOMODATIONS. BnBNation CANNOT AND DOES NOT CONTROL THE CONTENT CONTAINED IN ANY LISTINGS AND THE CONDITION, LEGALITY OR SUITABILITY OF ANY ACCOMMODATIONS. BnBNation IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR AND DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY RELATED TO ANY AND ALL LISTINGS AND ACCOMMODATIONS. ACCORDINGLY, ANY BOOKINGS WILL BE MADE AT THE GUEST’S OWN RISK.
In order to access certain features of the Site and Application, and to book an Accommodation or create a Listing, you must register to create an account ("BnBNation Account") and become a Member. You may register to join the Services directly via the Site or Application or as described in this section.
You can also register to join by logging into your account with certain third party social networking sites ("SNS") (including, but not limited to, Facebook); each such account, a "Third Party Account", via our Site or Application, as described below. As part of the functionality of the Site, Application and Services, you may link your BnBNation Account with Third Party Accounts, by either: (i) providing your Third Party Account login information to BnBNation through the Site, Services or Application; or (ii) allowing BnBNation to access your Third Party Account, as is permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of each Third Party Account. You represent that you are entitled to disclose your Third Party Account login information to BnBNation and/or grant BnBNation access to your Third Party Account (including, but not limited to, for use for the purposes described herein), without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable Third Party Account and without obligating BnBNation to pay any fees or making BnBNation subject to any usage limitations imposed by such third party service providers. By granting BnBNation access to any Third Party Accounts, you understand that BnBNation will access, make available and store (if applicable) any Content that you have provided to and stored in your Third Party Account ("SNS Content") so that it is available on and through the Site, Services and Application via your BnBNation Account and BnBNation Account profile page. Unless otherwise specified in these Terms, all SNS Content, if any, shall be considered to be Member Content for all purposes of these Terms. Depending on the Third Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third Party Accounts, personally identifiable information that you post to your Third Party Accounts will be available on and through your BnBNation Account on the Site, Services and Application. Please note that if a Third Party Account or associated service becomes unavailable or BnBNation's access to such Third Party Account is terminated by the third party service provider, then SNS Content will no longer be available on and through the Site, Services and Application. You have the ability to disable the connection between your BnBNation Account and your Third Party Accounts, at any time, by accessing the "Settings" section of the Site and Application.
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS ASSOCIATED WTH YOUR THIRD PARTY ACCOUNTS IS GOVERNED SOLELY BY YOUR AGREEMENT(S) WITH SUCH THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS. BnBNation makes no effort to review any SNS Content for any purpose, including but not limited to, for accuracy, legality or non-infringement and BnBNation is not responsible for any SNS Content.
We will create your BnBNation Account and your BnBNation Account profile page for your use of the Site and Application based upon the personal information you provide to us or that we obtain via an SNS as described above. You may not have more than one (1) active BnBNation Account. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete. BnBNation reserves the right to suspend or terminate your BnBNation Account and your access to the Site, Application and Services if you create more than one (1) BnBNation Account or if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current or incomplete. You are responsible for safeguarding your password. You agree that you will not disclose your password to any third party and that you will take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your BnBNation Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify BnBNation of any unauthorized use of your BnBNation Account.
As a Member, you may create Listings. To this end, you will be asked a variety of questions about the Accommodation to be listed, including, but not limited to, the location, capacity, size, features, availability of the Accommodation and pricing and related rules and financial terms. In order to be featured in Listings via the Site, Application and Services, all Accommodations must have valid physical addresses. Listings will be made publicly available via the Site, Application and Services. Other Members will be able to book your Accommodation via the Site, Application and Services based upon the information provided in your Listing. You understand and agree that once a Guest requests a booking of your Accommodation, the price for such booking may not be altered.
You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for any and all Listings you post. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that any Listing you post and the booking of, or Guest stay at, an Accommodation in a Listing you post (i) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties and (ii) will (a) be in compliance with all applicable laws, Tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any Accommodation included in a Listing you post, including, but not limited to, zoning laws and laws governing rentals of residential and other properties and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties. Please note that BnBNation assumes no responsibility for a Host’s compliance with any applicable laws, rules and regulations.
You understand and agree that BnBNation does not act as an insurer or as a contracting agent for, or representative of, you as a Host, and if a Guest requests a booking of your Accommodation and stays at your Accommodation, any agreement you enter into with such Guest is between you and the Guest and BnBNation is not a party thereto. Please note that BnBNation reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Listing for any reason, including Listings that BnBNation, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms or otherwise harmful to the Site, Application or Services.
When you create a Listing, you may also choose to include certain requirements which must be met by the Members who are eligible to request a booking of your Accommodation, including, but not limited to, requiring Members to have a profile picture or verified phone number, in order to book your Accommodation. Any Member wishing to book Accommodations included in Listings with such requirements must meet these requirements.
If you are a Host, BnBNation makes certain tools available to you to help you to make informed decisions about which Members you choose to confirm for booking for your Accommodation. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Host, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who reside at or are otherwise present at the Accommodation at your request or invitation, excluding the Guest (and the individuals the Guest invites to the Accommodation, if applicable.)
BnBNation recommends that Hosts obtain appropriate insurance for their Accommodations. Please review any insurance policy that you may have for your Accommodation carefully, and in particular please make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy, including, but not limited to, whether or not your insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of Guests (and the individuals the Guest invites to the Accommodation, if applicable) while at your Accommodation.
BnBNation does not endorse any Members or any Accommodations. In addition, although these Terms require Members to provide accurate information, we do not attempt to confirm, and do not confirm, any Member’s purported identity. You are responsible for determining the identity and suitability of others who you contact via the Site, Application and Services. Except as provided in the BnBNation Host Guarantee Terms and Conditions ("BnBNation Host Guarantee"), which is an agreement between BnBNation and Hosts, we will not be responsible for any damage or harm resulting from your interactions with other Members. (Please see BnBNation's Host Guarantee Terms and Conditions at www.bnbnation.com/terms for information about the BnBNation Host Guarantee.) By using the Site, Application or Services, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other Members or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular Members or other third parties who caused you harm and you agree not to attempt to impose liability on, or seek any legal remedy from BnBNation with respect to such actions or omissions. Accordingly, we encourage you to communicate directly with other Members on the Site and Services regarding any bookings or Listings made by you.
Bookings and Financial Terms for Hosts
If you are a Host and a booking is requested for your Accommodation via the Site, Application and Services, you will be required to either confirm or reject the booking within 24 hours of when the booking is requested (as determined by BnBNation in its sole discretion) or the booking request will be automatically cancelled. When a booking is requested via the Site, Application and Services, we will share with you (i) the first and last name of the Guest who has requested the booking, (ii) a link to the Guest’s BnBNation Account profile page, (iii) the names of any members of an SNS with whom you are "friends" or associated on the SNS if such individuals are also "friends" or associated with the Guest on such SNS, and (iv) an indication that the name that the Guest provided to BnBNation when the Guest became a Member matches the name that the Guest provided to the SNSs to which the Guest has linked his or her BnBNation Account, so that you can view such information before confirming or rejecting the booking. If you are unable to confirm or decide to reject a booking of an Accommodation within such 24 hour period, any amounts collected by BnBNation for the requested booking will be refunded to the applicable Guest’s credit or debit card and any pre-authorization of such credit or debit card will be released. When you confirm a booking requested by a Guest, BnBNation will send you an email, text message or message via the Application confirming such booking, depending on the selections you make via the Site, Application and Services.
The fees displayed in each Listing are comprised of the Accommodation Fees (defined below) and the Guest Fees (defined below.) Where applicable, Taxes may be charged in addition to the Accommodation Fees and Guest Fees. The Accommodation Fees, the Guest Fees and applicable Taxes are collectively referred to in these Terms as the "Total Fees". The amounts due and payable by a Guest solely relating to a Host’s Accommodation are the "Accommodation Fees". Please note that it is the Host and not BnBNation which determines the Accommodation Fees. The Accommodation Fee may include a cleaning fee, at the Host’s discretion. BnBNation charges a fee to Guests based upon a percentage of applicable Accommodation Fees which are the "Guest Fees". The Guest Fees are added to the Accommodation Fees to calculate the Total Fees (which will also include applicable Taxes) displayed in the applicable Listing. BnBNation will collect the Total Fees at the time of booking confirmation (i.e. when the Host confirms the booking within 24 hours of the booking request) and will remit the Accommodation Fees (less BnBNation's Host Fees (defined below)) to the Host within 24 hours of when the Guest arrives at the applicable Accommodation.
Please note that BnBNation does not currently charge fees for the creation of Listings. However, you acknowledge and agree that BnBNation reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to charge you for and collect fees from you for the creation of Listings. Please note that BnBNation will provide notice of any Listing fee collection via the Site, Application and Services, prior to implementing such a Listing fee feature.
Bookings and Financial Terms for Guests
The Hosts, not BnBNation, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed bookings and making available any Accommodations reserved through the Site, Application and Services. If you, as a Guest, choose to enter into a transaction with a Host for the booking of an Accommodation, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Host and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such Accommodation imposed by the Host. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not BnBNation, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, and BnBNation is not a party to such agreements and disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements.
Listings for Accommodations will specify the Total Fees. As noted above, the Host is required to either confirm or reject the booking within 24 hours of when the booking is requested (as determined by BnBNation in its sole discretion) or the requested booking will be automatically cancelled. If a requested booking is cancelled (i.e. not confirmed by the applicable Host), any amounts collected by BnBNation will be refunded to such Guest, depending on the selections the Guest makes via the Site and Application, and any pre-authorization of such Guest’s credit or debit card will be released, if applicable.
You agree to pay BnBNation for the Total Fees for any booking requested in connection with your BnBNation Account if the applicable Host confirms such requested bookings. In order to establish a booking pending the applicable Host’s confirmation of your requested booking, you understand and agree that BnBNation reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to (i) obtain a pre-authorization via your credit or debit card for the Total Fees or (ii) charge your credit or debit card a nominal amount, not to exceed fifty rupees (INR 50), or a similar sum in the currency in which you are transacting ( e.g. one euro or one British pound) to verify your credit or debit card. Once BnBNation receives confirmation of your booking from the applicable Host, BnBNation will collect the Total Fees in accordance with the terms and conditions of these Terms and the pricing terms set forth in the applicable Listing. Please note that BnBNation cannot control any fees that may be charged to a Guest by his or her bank related to BnBNation's collection of the Total Fees, and BnBNation disclaims all liability in this regard.
Hosts may choose to include security deposits in their Listings ("Security Deposits"). Each Listing will describe whether a Security Deposit is required for the applicable Accommodation. If a Security Deposit is included in a Listing for a confirmed booking of Accommodation, BnBNation will use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain a pre-authorization of the Guest’s credit or debit card in the amount the Host determines for the Security Deposit within a reasonable time prior to the Guest’s check-in at the applicable Host’s Accommodation. BnBNation will also use its commercially reasonable efforts to address Hosts’ requests and claims related to Security Deposits, but BnBNation is not responsible for administering or accepting any claims by Hosts related to Security Deposits, and disclaims any and all liability in this regard.
In consideration for providing the Services, BnBNation collects service fees from Hosts and Guests ("Service Fees"). Service Fees are made up of two (2) components: (i) Guest Fees and (ii) a fee that is charged to the Host based upon a percentage of the amount of the Accommodation Fees ("Host Fees"). Where applicable, Taxes may also be charged in addition to the Host Fees. Host Fees are deducted from the Accommodation Fees before remitting the Accommodation Fees to the Host, within 24 hours of when the Guest arrives at the applicable Accommodation. Guest Fees are, as noted above, included in the Total Fees.
Balances will be remitted to Hosts via check, PayPal, direct deposit or other payment methods described on the Site or via the Application, in the Host’s currency of choice, depending upon the selections the Host makes via the Site, Application and Services. Please note that for any payments by BnBNation in currencies other than INDIAN RUPEES, BnBNation may deduct foreign currency processing costs from such payments. Except as otherwise provided herein, Service Fees are non-refundable.
Cancellations and Refunds
If, as a Guest, you cancel your requested booking before the requested booking is confirmed by a Host, Bn Nation will refund any Accommodation Fees collected for such requested booking within a commercially reasonable time. If, as a Guest, you wish to cancel a confirmed booking made via the Site, Application and Services, the cancellation policy of the Host contained in the applicable Listing will apply to such cancellation. Also, the refund will be made to the customer's account.
If a Host cancels a confirmed booking made via the Site, Services, and Application, (i) BnBNation will refund the Total Fees for such booking to the applicable Guest within a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation and (ii) the Guest will receive an email or other communication from BnBNation containing alternative Listings and other related information. If the Guest requests a booking from one of the alternative Listings and the Host associated with such alternative Listing confirms the Guest’s requested booking, then the Guest agrees to pay BnBNation the Total Fees relating to the confirmed booking for the Accommodation in the alternative Listing, in accordance with these Terms. If a Host cancelled a confirmed booking and you, as a Guest, have not received an email or other communication from BnBNation, please contact BnBNation at http://www.bnbnation.com/home/contact.
Some Hosts may pledge to donate a portion of the funds they receive from confirmed bookings made via the Site, Application and Services to a particular cause or charity. We do not control, and will not take any responsibility or liability for, whether the Host does in fact make the donation he or she pledged to make.
You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining your applicable Tax reporting requirements in consultation with your tax advisors. BnBNation cannot and does not offer Tax-related advice to any Members of the Site, Application and Services. Additionally, please note that each Host is responsible for determining local indirect Taxes and for including any applicable Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes in Listings. Where applicable, or based upon request from a Host, BnBNation may issue a valid VAT invoice to such Host.
Damage to Accommodations
As a Guest, you are responsible for leaving the Accommodation in the condition it was in when you arrived. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Guest, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who you invite to, or otherwise provide access to, the Accommodation. In the event that a Host claims otherwise and provides evidence of damage, including but not limited to, photographs, you agree to pay the cost of replacing the damaged items with equivalent items. After being notified of the claim and given forty eight (48) hours to respond, the payment will be charged to and taken from the credit or debit card on file in your BnBNation Account. BnBNation also reserves the right to charge the credit or debit card on file in your BnBNation Account, or otherwise collect payment from you and pursue any avenues available to BnBNation in this regard, including using Security Deposits, in situations in which you have been determined, in BnBNation's sole discretion, to have damaged any Accommodation, including, but not limited to, in relation to any payment requests made by Hosts under the BnBNation Host Guarantee, and in relation to any payments made by BnBNation to Hosts. If we are unable to charge the credit or debit card on file or otherwise collect payment from you, you agree to remit payment for any damage to the Accommodation to the applicable Host or to BnBNation (if applicable).
Both Guests and Hosts agree to cooperate with and assist BnBNation in good faith, and to provide BnBNation with such information and take such actions as may be reasonably requested by BnBNation, in connection with any complaints or claims made by Members relating to Accommodations or any personal or other property located at an Accommodation (including, without limitation, payment requests made under the BnBNation Host Guarantee) or with respect to any investigation undertaken by BnBNation or a representative of BnBNation regarding use or abuse of the Site, Application or the Services. If you are a Guest, upon BnBNation's reasonable request, and to the extent you are reasonably able to do so, you agree to participate in mediation or similar resolution process with a Host, at no cost to you, which process will be conducted by BnBNation or a third party selected by BnBNation, with respect to losses for which the Host is requesting payment from BnBNation under the BnBNation Host Guarantee.
If you are a Guest, you understand and agree that BnBNation reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to make a claim under your homeowner’s, renter’s or other insurance policy related to any damage or loss that you may have caused or been responsible for to an Accommodation or any personal or other property located at an Accommodation. You agree to cooperate with and assist BnBNation in good faith, and to provide BnBNation with such information as may be reasonably requested by BnBNation in order to make a claim under your homeowner’s, renter’s or other insurance policy, including, but not limited to, executing documents and taking such further acts as BnBNation may reasonably request to assist BnBNation in accomplishing the foregoing.
