VILLA LLC and Locations.life

Terms of Service and End-user agreement

Administrating the Locations.Life platform, there are certain expectations of us and the agreement we are making with our users.

As the provider of the Locations.life Platform, VILLA LLC does not own, control, manage, or supply any Listings or Host Services. Property owners and managers are responsible for the contractual agreement between them and the renters that lease their property. Similarly renters are dually responsible for the contractual agreement they enter into with the property owners upon confirmation of a reservation. VILLA LLC is not and does not become a party to or other participant in any contractual relationship between Members, nor is VILLA LLC a real estate broker or insurer. VILLA LLC is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Member, except as specified in the Payments Terms below.


 

While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, VILLA LLC has 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, or (iii) the performance or conduct of any Member or third party. VILLA LLC does 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 VILLA LLC 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 reserve a location for leasing or use other Host Services, accept a booking request from a property you manage/own, or communicate and interact with other Members, whether online or in person. 

 

Using Locations.life™ as a property manager/owner creates an agreement that is limited to being an independent, third-party contractor, and not an employee, agent, joint venturer or partner of VILLA LLC 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 VILLA LLC. You acknowledge and agree that you have complete discretion whether to list your property and the services you provide or otherwise engage in other business activities.

To promote the Locations.life Platform and to increase the exposure of Listings, Listings and other Member Content may be displayed on other websites, in applications, within emails, and in online and offline advertisements. 

More info on specific term sections can be accessed by contacting us.

In order to access and use the Locations.life Platform or register a Locations.life Account you must be an individual at least 18 years old or a duly organized, validly existing business, organization or other legal entity in good standing under the laws of the country you are established and able to enter into legally binding contracts.

You will comply with any applicable export control laws in your local jurisdiction. You also represent and warrant that (i) neither you nor your Host Service(s) are located or take place in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country, and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.


 

VILLA LLC may make access to and use of the Airbnb Platform, or certain areas or features of the Locations.life Platform, subject to certain conditions or requirements, such as completing a verification process, meeting specific quality or eligibility criteria, meeting Ratings or Reviews thresholds, or a Member’s booking and cancellation history.

User verification on the Internet is difficult and we do not assume any responsibility for the confirmation of any Member’s identity. Notwithstanding the above, for transparency and fraud prevention purposes, and as permitted by applicable laws, we may, but have no obligation to (i) ask Members to provide a form of government identification or other information or undertake additional checks designed to help verify the identities or backgrounds of Members, (ii) screen Members against third party databases or other sources and request reports from service providers, and (iii) where we have sufficient information to identify a Member, obtain reports from public records of criminal convictions or sex offender registrations or an equivalent version of background or registered sex offender checks in your local jurisdiction (if available).

VILLA LLC reserves the right to modify these Terms at any time in accordance with this provision. If we make changes to these Terms, we will post the revised Terms on the Locations.life Platform and update the “Last Updated” date at the top of these Terms. We will also provide you with notice of the modifications by email at least thirty (30) days before the date they become effective. If you disagree with the revised Terms, you may terminate this Agreement with immediate effect. We will inform you about your right to terminate the Agreement in the notification email. If you do not terminate your Agreement before the date the revised Terms become effective, your continued access to or use of the Locations.life Platform will constitute acceptance of the revised Terms.

 

You must register a Locations.life Account to access and use certain features of the Locations.life Platform, such as publishing or booking a Listing. If you are registering an  Account for a business, organization or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to legally bind that entity and grant us all permissions and licenses provided in these Terms.

You can register an Account using an email address and creating a password, or through your account with certain third-party social networking services, such as Facebook or Google (“SNS Account”). You have the ability to disable the connection between your Locations.life Account and your SNS Account at any time, by accessing the “Settings” section of the Locations.life Platform.

 You may not register more than one (1)  Account unless VILLA LLC authorizes you to do so. You may not assign or otherwise transfer your Account to another party.

Subject to meeting any requirements (such as completing any verification processes) set by VILLA LLC and/or the property manager, you can book a Listing available on the Locations.life Platform by following the respective booking process. All applicable fees, including the Listing Fee, Security Deposit (if applicable), Service Fee will be presented to you prior to booking a Listing. You agree to pay the Total Fees for any booking requested.

Upon receipt of a booking confirmation from VILLA LLC – Locations.life, a legally binding agreement is formed between you and your Host, subject to any additional terms and conditions of the Host that apply, including in particular the applicable cancellation policy and any rules and restrictions specified in the Listing. VILLA LLC- Locations.life will collect the Total Fees at the time of the booking request or upon the Host’s confirmation and release funds according to established pay out schedule described below. For certain bookings, Guests may be required to pay or have the option to pay in multiple installments.

A confirmed booking of an Location is a limited license granted to you by the Host to enter, occupy and use the location for the duration and function use of your agreement, during which time the Host (only where and to the extent permitted by applicable law) retains the right to re-enter the location, in accordance with your agreement with the Host.

You agree to leave the Location no later than the agreed upon set time in the confirmation that the Host specifies in the Listing or such other time as mutually agreed upon between you and the Host. If you stay past the agreed upon checkout time without the Host’s consent, you no longer have a license to stay on the location and the Host is entitled to make you leave in a manner consistent with applicable law. In addition, you agree to pay, if requested by the Host, for each hour period or day period that you Overstay, an additional rate fee of up to two (2) times the set Listing Fee originally paid by you to cover the inconvenience suffered by the Host, plus all applicable Taxes, and any legal expenses incurred by the Host to make you leave. If you Overstay at a location, you authorize VILLA LLC (via Locations.life) to charge you to collect Overstay Fees. A Security Deposit, if required by a Host, may be applied to any Overstay Fees due for a Guest’s Overstay.

Security deposits are a portion of the set rate charge that is held in consideration for cancellations until the reservation is completed. When a cancellation is made the security deposit is used to offset the refund amount and protect against damages incurred from preparation for a reservation. Security deposits are set by property owners and do not affect the general amount of the listing rate.
 
Cleaning costs are additional charges designated by property owners to clean and refresh locations after desired rental use. these charges are additional and are built into the rental rates.

Hosts and Guests are responsible for any modifications to a Reservation that they make via the Locations.life Platform or direct Locations.life customer service to make, and agree to pay any additional Listing Fees, Host Fees or Guest Fees and/or Taxes associated with such reservation Modifications.

Guests can cancel a confirmed booking at any time pursuant to VILLA LLC’s cancellation policy, and VILLA LLC will refund the amount of the Total Fees due to the Guest in accordance with such cancellation policy. Unless extenuating circumstances exist, any portion of the Total Fees due to the Host under the applicable cancellation policy will be remitted to the Host.

If a Host cancels a confirmed booking, the Guest will receive a full refund of the Total Fees for such booking.

Within a certain timeframe after completing a booking, Guests can leave a public review (“Review”) and submit a star rating (“Rating”) about their experience. Ratings or Reviews reflect the opinions of individual Members and do not reflect the opinion of VILLA LLC. Ratings and Reviews are not verified by VILLA LLC for accuracy and may be incorrect or misleading.

Ratings and Reviews by Guests must be accurate and may not contain any offensive or defamatory language. Ratings and Reviews are subject to review and approval and must comply with applicable laws.

Members are prohibited from manipulating the Ratings and Reviews system in any manner, such as instructing a third party to write a positive or negative Review about another Member.

Ratings and Reviews are part of a Member’s public profile and may also be surfaced elsewhere on the Locations.life Platform (such as the Listing page) together with other relevant information such as number of bookings, number of cancellations, average response time and other information.

If a Host escalates a Damage Claim to VILLA LLC, you will be given an opportunity to respond. If you agree to pay the Host, or VILLA LLC determines in its sole discretion that you are responsible for the Damage Claim, VILLA LLC will, after the end of your stay, collect any such sums from you and/or (if applicable) required to cover the Damage Claim pursuant to applicable laws.
