In using our Services, you may be exposed to content and information from other users or third parties ("Third-Party Content"), either at our Site or through links to third-party websites. We do not control, and shall have no responsibility for, Third-Party Content, including material that may be unlawful, misleading, incomplete, erroneous, offensive, indecent or otherwise objectionable. You must evaluate the veracity of, and bear all risks associated with your exposure to, Third-Party Content, including without limitation, profiles of other users of our Services.

7. PAYMENT

7.1 Fee Structure. In exchange for providing the Service, we will add a percentage to the price set by the Host for the Places we display on the Site as our Fee (currently 15%). We reserve the right to change the percentage at any time and undertake to advise Hosts of any change by email sent to the address specified in your account. As a Guest, you agree to pay the amount posted by the Host with whom you have chosen to stay plus the applicable Fee. Some optional services or functionality may incur additional fees.

7.2 Payment Logistics. When you find a Listing that you are interested in, you can contact the Host with your enquiry about a Booking. You may make any number of enquiries. As appropriate, Hosts will reply to advise that the Place is available for the dates you selected. You then secure the Booking by making the appropriate payment online through the Site by card or PayPal. As applicable, funds will be held by us until 24 hours after the arrival date, after which time the funds will be transferred to the Host less the applicable Fee. For Listings that require payment directly to the Host on arrival, the Guest is to pay the Fee online to secure the Booking. The remainder is to be paid to the Host by cash, cheque, card or other method as agreed between the Host and the Guest during the booking process. Once payment has been successfully completed, the Booking is secured, both parties will be advised by email from Apartments Global and personal contact details will be made available to the Guest and Host to facilitate direct communications. Notification of the availability of a Place for selected dates does not constitute a confirmed booking. The Guest must make payment in order to secure the booking.

7.3 If a different Guest makes payment first, that Guest will secure the dates at the Place as his or her booking. When a Guest completes the booking process by making payment, other enquiries made by the Guest to other Hosts for the dates will be cancelled. Equally, other enquiries received by the Host for the dates will be cancelled. Apartments Global will advise parties accordingly by email.

7.4 Cancellation and Refunds. If a Guest cancels a confirmed booking, we will return the funds in accordance with our then-applicable Cancellation Policy. If a Host cancels the booking, penalties will be incurred in accordance with out then-applicable Cancellation Policy.

7.5 Privacy. Our Privacy Policy governs the handling, storage, and use of any information you submit to us, including credit card billing information. Please see Section 4 of these Terms for further information on this policy.

7.6 Taxes. We do not do business as an owner or operator of hotel or motel rooms, nor are we a provider of rooms, lodging or accommodations, we do not own, sell, resell, furnish, provide, rent, re-rent, manage and/or control hotel rooms, motel rooms or any other lodgings or accommodations. We also do not act as an agent for any providers or users of hotel rooms, motel rooms, or other lodging or accommodations. Our Site makes available a marketplace for Hosts and Guests to meet and arrange for accommodations. We are not a contracting agent or representative of the Host or Guest. Our role is solely to facilitate the availability of this marketplace for the Host and Guest and to provide services related thereto. Any agreement for the use of any accommodations is solely between the Host and Guest, and we are not a party to (and have on control over) that agreement. You understand that we are acting solely as an intermediary for the collection of rents and fees between you and any Hosts or Guests that you chose to enter into a transaction with. Because applicable tax laws vary significantly by locality, you understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining your own tax reporting requirements in consultation with tax advisors. We cannot and do not offer tax advice to either Hosts or Guests.

7.7 Damages. As a Guest, you are responsible for leaving the property in the condition that it was given to you. 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 48 hours to respond, the payment will be taken from the credit card on file. If we are unable to charge the card on file, you will be required to remit payment.
