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 Hoozing Account on the Site, Services and Application. Please note that if a Third-Party Account or associated service becomes unavailable or Hoozing’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 Hoozing 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 WITH YOUR THIRD-PARTY ACCOUNTS IS GOVERNED SOLELY BY YOUR AGREEMENT(S) WITH SUCH THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS. Hoozing makes no effort to review any SNS Content for any purpose, including but not limited to for accuracy, legality or non-infringement and Hoozing is not responsible for any SNS Content.

You may not have more than one (1) active Hoozing 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.

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 Hoozing Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify Hoozing of any unauthorized use of your Hoozing Account.

Accommodation Listings

As a Member, you may create Listings. To create a Listing, you will be asked a variety of questions about the Accommodation to be listed, including, but not limited to, the location, capacity, size, features, and 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, after confirming with the Landlord.

You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for any and all Listings you post. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that any Listing you post and the renting of an Accommodation in a Listing you post (i) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties, such as homeowners association, condominium, lease or rental agreements, and (ii) will (a) be in compliance with all applicable laws (such as zoning laws and laws governing rentals of residential and other properties), Tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any Accommodation included in a Listing you post (including having all required permits, licenses and registrations), and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties. Please note that Hoozing assumes no responsibility for a Landlord ’s compliance with any agreements with or duties to third parties, applicable laws, rules and regulations. Hoozing reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Listing for any reason, including Listings that Hoozing, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms or Hoozing’s then-current Policies and Community Guidelines at http://www.hoozing.com/terms-and-conditions , or otherwise harmful to the Site, Application or Services.

If you are a Tenant or Customers, you understand and agree that Hoozing does not act as an insurer or as your contracting agent. If a Customer requests a visiting of your Accommodation, any agreement you enter into with such Customer is between you and the Customer and Hoozing is not a party thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Hoozing serves as the limited authorized payment collection agent of the Landlord  for the purpose of accepting, on behalf of the Landlord , payments from Customers of such amounts stipulated by the Landlord  (including cleaning or other fees and/or Taxes).

When you create a Listing, you may also choose to include certain requirements which must be met by the Members who are eligible to requests a visiting of your Accommodation, including, but not limited to, requiring Members to have a profile picture or verified phone number, in order to visit your Accommodation. Any Member wishing to visit Accommodations included in Listings with such requirements must meet these requirements.

If you are a Tenant, Hoozing makes certain tools available to you to help you to make informed decisions about which Members you choose to confirm for  visiting for your Accommodation. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Tenant, 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.)

Hoozing recommends that Landlords 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.

Hoozing may offer Tenants the option of having photographers take photographs of their Accommodations. If you as a Landlord or agent choose to have a photographer do this, the photographs taken will be made available to you to include in your Listing with a watermark or tag bearing the words “Hoozing.com Verified Photo” or similar wording (“Verified Images”). All images, materials and content created by these photographers provided by Hoozing, including Verified Images, constitute Hoozing Content, regardless of whether you include them in your Listing.

No Endorsement

Hoozing does not endorse any Member or any Accommodation. You understand that Verified Images are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of the Accommodation at the time the photograph was taken. Verified Images are therefore not an endorsement by Hoozing of any Member or any Accommodation. Members are required by these Terms to provide accurate information, and although Hoozing may undertake additional checks and processes designed to help verify or check the identities or backgrounds of users, we do not make any representations about, confirm, or endorse any Member or the Member’s purported identity or background.

Any references in the Site, Application or Services to a Member being “verified” or “connected” (or similar language) only indicate that the Member has completed a relevant verification process, and does not represent anything else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Hoozing about any Member, including of the Member’s identity and whether the Member is trustworthy, safe or suitable. Instead, any such description is intended to be useful information for you to evaluate when you make your own decisions about the identity and suitability of others whom you contact or interact with via the Site, Application and Services. We therefore recommend that you always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to sign contract with a landlord or to accept a renting request from a tenant, or to have any other interaction with any other Member.

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. You agree not to attempt to impose liability on or seek any legal remedy from Hoozing with respect to such actions or omissions. Accordingly, we encourage you to communicate directly with other Members on the Site and Services regarding any renting or Listings made by you. This limitation shall not apply to any claim by a Landlord against Hoozing regarding the remittance of payments received from a Customer by Hoozing, which instead shall be subject to the limitations described in the section below entitled “Limitation of Liability”.

Assignment

You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Hoozing’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. Hoozing may assign or transfer these Terms, at its sole discretion, without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.

Dispute Resolution

You and Hoozing agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or to the use of the Services or use of the Site or Application (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration , except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and Hoozing are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Hoozing otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.

General

The failure of Hoozing to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Hoozing. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
