SWIMPLY RESERVES THE RIGHT TO IMPOSE ANY AND ALL REQUIREMENTS IT DEEMS FIT WITH REGARDS TO SUCH LISTINGS INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, MINIMUM OR MAXIMUM DURATIONS, MINIMUM TIMES BETWEEN LISTINGS, AND MINIMUM PRICING.

 

Other Members will be able to book your Accommodation via the Site, Application or Services based upon the information provided in your Listing, your requirements, and Guests’ search parameters and preferences.

Accordingly, you represent and warrant that any Listing or Member Content you post, including but not limited to photographs, will be an accurate description of the Accommodation.

6.       Insurance


Swimply 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 your insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of or relating to Guests (and the individuals the Guest invites to the Accommodation, if applicable) while at your Accommodation.

 

As a Host, you understand and agree that Swimply does not act as an insurer. 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 Swimply is not a party to it.

 

7.       General Booking and Financial Terms


You authorize Swimply to store your Payment Method information and charge your Payment Method as outlined in these Payments Terms. If your Payment Method’s account information changes (e.g. account number, routing number, expiration date), Swimply may acquire that information from Swimply’s financial services partner or your bank and update your Payment Method on file in your Swimply Account.

Whatever Payment Method you use may be subject to additional terms and conditions imposed by the applicable third-party payment service provider; please review such terms and conditions before using your Payment Method.

 

Swimply reserves the right to setoff any amounts owed to you by Swimply with any amounts you may owe Swimply. For example, if you as a Host are owed an Accommodation Fee from Swimply, and concurrently owe Swimply an overage fee, Swimply may setoff the amounts against each other. Similarly, if you as a Guest have booked an Accommodation and are entitled to a refund for a separate cancelled Booking, Swimply may setoff the amounts against each other. Both Swimply and you as either a Guest or Host, will be relieved of your obligation with respect to setoff amounts following such a setoff.

 

Swimply, in its sole discretion, may increase or discount a Host’s Listing price or a Guest’s Booking cost in any matter it deems appropriate, including but not limited to providing promotional codes to Guests.

 

Bookings and Financial Terms for Hosts

If you are a Host, and a Booking is requested for your Accommodation via the Site, Application or Services, you will be required to either confirm or reject the Booking request within the Booking Request Period, otherwise the Booking request will automatically expire.

 

If you as a Host, fail to, confirm or reject before the Booking request expires, any amount Swimply has collected for the Booking will be refunded to the Guest.

 

When you confirm a Booking requested by a Guest, Swimply will send you a Communication confirming such Booking, depending on the selections you make via the Site, Application or Services.

 

Swimply will initiate payment of Accommodation Fee less the Service Fees and Taxes to the Host within seven (7) business days after the date of the Booking, subject to any delays not within Swimply’s control.

 

Bookings and Financial Terms for Guests

Hosts, not Swimply, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed Bookings and making available any Accommodations reserved through the Site, Application or 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 Swimply, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, that Swimply is not a party to such agreements, and that, with the exception of Swimply’s obligations pursuant to these Terms, Swimply disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements.

 

You as a Guest agree that Swimply may charge your Payment Method the Total Fees for any Booking requested in connection with your Swimply Account. In order to establish a Booking pending the applicable Host’s confirmation of your requested Booking, you understand and agree that Swimply, on behalf of the Host, reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to (i) obtain a pre-authorization via your Payment Method for the Total Fees and/or (ii) charge your Payment Method a nominal amount, not to exceed one dollar ($1), to verify your Payment Method.

 

Depending on your chosen Payment Method, Swimply will either collect the Total Fees (i) at the time of the Booking request or (ii) upon the Host’s confirmation. As a general rule, Swimply will collect the Total Fees due once Swimply receives confirmation of your Booking from the applicable Host. However, if you pay with a push Payment Method, Swimply will collect Total Fees at the time of your Booking request. If Swimply is unable to collect Total Fees in the ordinary course, it may elect to collect Total Fees at a later point in time. Once the payment transaction for your requested Booking is successfully completed you will receive a confirmation email summarizing your confirmed Booking.

 

In connection with your requested Booking, you will be asked to provide customary billing information such as name, billing address and Payment Method information either to Swimply or a third-party payment processor(s). You agree to pay Swimply for any confirmed Bookings made in connection with your Swimply Account in accordance with these Payments Terms by one of the methods supported by the Site or Application (e.g. by PayPal, credit card or debit card). You hereby authorize the collection of such amounts by charging the Payment Method provided as part of requesting the Booking, either directly by Swimply or indirectly, via a third-party online payment processor or by one of the payment methods described on the Site or Application. You also authorize Swimply to charge any Payment Method on file in your Swimply Account in the event of damage caused at an Accommodation as contemplated under Section 9.

 

If Swimply is unable to collect any amounts you owe for a confirmed Booking or a Damage Claim, Swimply may engage in collection efforts to recover such amounts from you.

 

8.       Service Fees and Other Fees


Service Fees or charges may include collection fees, convenience fees or other third-party charges. Where applicable, Swimply may also charge Taxes in respect of the Host Fees and Guest Fees. Swimply deducts the Host Fees from the Accommodation Fees before remitting the balance to the Host.

 

Balances will be remitted by Swimply to Hosts via the Payout Method selected by the Host in the Host’s currency of choice, depending upon the selections the Host makes via the Site, Application and Services. Swimply may, in its sole discretion, round up or round down amounts payable from or to Guests and Hosts to the nearest whole dollar (i.e. $101.50 to $102.00, or $101.49 to $101.00).

 

9.       Damages and Security Deposits


You as a Guest are responsible for leaving the Accommodation (including any personal or other property located at an 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 whom you invite to, or otherwise provide access to, the Accommodation. In the event that a Host claims and provides evidence of damage to its Accommodation (“Damage Claim”), including but not limited to photographs, you agree to pay the cost of replacing the damaged items with equivalent items. Such cost may be collected from the Payment Method used to book the Accommodation, or any other Payment Method on file at the time of the Damage Claim. Swimply reserves the right to collect payment from you and pursue any avenues available if it is unable to collect from the Payment Method.

 

Hosts may include in the Listing a requirement that Guest pay a security deposit (“Security Deposit”) when Booking an Accommodation. Swimply will hold such Security Deposit for three (3) business days following the confirmed Booking, and if within such time, Host has not made a Damage Claim, Swimply will return such Security Deposit to the Guest. Swimply disclaims all responsibility with respect to holding the Security Deposit and administering or accepting Damage Claims by Hosts as well as any and all liability in this regard.

 

If a Host has a Damage Claim for a confirmed Booking, the Host may seek payment from the Guest through Swimply. The Host may escalate the Damage Claim to Swimply if the Host and Guest are unable to resolve a Damage Claim. If escalating the Damage Claim to Swimply, the Host must send evidence of the damage, including but not limited to photographs to Swimply. If a Host escalates a Damage Claim to Swimply, you as a Guest will be notified of the Damage Claim and given an opportunity to respond. If you as a Guest agree to pay the Host in connection with a Damage Claim, or if Swimply determines, in its sole discretion, that you are responsible for damaging an Accommodation or any personal or other property located at an Accommodation, Swimply will collect any such costs from you and/or against the Security Deposit from the Payment Method in accordance with the Payments Terms. Swimply also reserves the right to otherwise collect payment from you and pursue any avenues available to Swimply in this regard in situations in which you have been determined, in Swimply’s sole discretion, to have damaged any Accommodation or any personal or other property located at an Accommodation.

 

Members agree to cooperate with and assist Swimply in good faith and to provide Swimply with such information as well as to take such actions as may be reasonably requested by Swimply, in connection with any Damage Claims or other complaints or claims made by Members relating to Accommodations or any personal or other property located at an Accommodation or with respect to any investigation undertaken by Swimply or a representative of Swimply regarding use or abuse of the Site, Application or Services. You as a Guest, upon Swimply’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 Swimply or a third party selected by Swimply or its insurer, with respect to losses for which the Host is requesting payment from Swimply under these terms.

 

If you are a Guest, you understand and agree that Swimply may 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 or to an Accommodation or any personal or other property located at an Accommodation. You agree to cooperate with and assist Swimply in good faith, and to provide Swimply with such information as may be reasonably requested by Swimply, 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 Swimply may reasonably request to assist Swimply in accomplishing the foregoing.

 

Security Deposits, if required by a Host, may be applied to any fees due from a Guest overstaying at a Listing without the Host’s consent.

 

10.   Overstaying or Usage without Consent


Unavailability of the Accommodation

You as a Host agree to make the Accommodation available for the duration agreed upon either (i) at the time of Booking, or (ii) such other time as mutually agreed upon by you and the Guest (“Allowed Duration”). If you fail to do, you shall be subject to a charge of $50 for every half hour increment for which the Accommodation is unavailable for the duration of the Booking, to be deducted from amounts owed to you by Swimply for the Booking.

 

Overstaying as a Guest

You as a Guest agree that your confirmed Booking grants you a limited license to enter and use the Accommodation for the Allowed Duration. If you exceed the Allowed Duration, without the Host’s consent, you agree that the Host or Swimply may charge you at a rate of $100 for every half hour increment exceeding the Allowed Duration. This amount shall be to compensate the Host for any inconvenience. Swimply is authorized to collect fees pursuant to this Section from the Guest’s Payment Methods.

 

Unauthorized Access of Accommodation

You as a Guest agree that you are responsible for any individuals whom you invite to, or otherwise provide access to, the Accommodation, and as such, if you invite or provide access to more persons than agreed upon between you and the Host or otherwise permitted by the Host, you will be subject to a $25 fee per person per hour in excess of the agreed upon number of persons.

 

11.   Non-Circumvention


Members explicitly agree that they will not attempt to bypass Swimply to rent or book any Accommodation outside of the Swimply platform. In the event that a Member violates this section, the Member agrees to pay Swimply a sum of $500 per Booking accomplished by circumventing Swimply plus any fees incurred by Swimply in collecting such fee.

 

Violation of this Section may result in suspension or termination of the violating Member’s Account.

 

12.   Cancellations and Refunds


Cancellations as a Host

If, as a Host, you cancel a confirmed Booking made via the Site, Services, and Application, Swimply will refund the Total Fees for such Booking to the applicable Guest.

 

If, as a Host, you cancel a confirmed Booking, you may be subject to a cancellation fee. For cancellations made 72 hours prior to the Booking date, you will not be charged a cancellation fee. For cancellations made within 24 through 72 hours prior to the Booking date, you will be charged a cancellation fee equal to 50% of the Total Fees. For cancellations made within 24 hours of the confirmed Booking date, you will be charged a cancellation fee equal to the Total Fees. Other consequences may apply to you or your Listing, including (i) publishing an automated review on your Listing indicating that a Booking was cancelled, (ii) keeping the calendar for your Listing unavailable or blocked for the dates of the cancelled Booking, or (iii) increasing the Host Fee payable to Swimply for future Listings.

 

Cancellations as a Guest

A full refund will be provided for cancellations made 72 hours prior to the Booking date. A 50% refund will be provided for cancellations made 24 through 72 hours prior to the Booking date. No refund will be provided for cancellations made within 24 hours of the confirmed Booking date. The Service Fee is non-refundable unless otherwise indicated in the cancellation policy selected by the Host.

 

Cancellations Generally

In certain circumstances, Swimply may decide, in its sole discretion, that it is necessary or desirable to cancel a confirmed Booking made via the Site, Application or Services. This may be for reasons set forth on the Site or for any other reason. Swimply may also determine, in its sole discretion, to forgo a cancellation fee from the Host or refund to the Guest part or all of the amounts charged to the Guest. You agree that Swimply will not have any liability for such cancellations or refunds.

 

Rain Policy

In the event of rain, the Guest is responsible for reporting the weather conditions to Swimply, and Swimply, in its sole discretion, will determine on a case-by-case basis whether a refund will be issued. If Swimply determines that the weather condition is one that should impede enjoyment of the Booking (i.e. heavy rain), the following terms shall apply: if the Booking is (i) less than 10 minutes underway, the Guest is entitled to a full refund, (ii) equal to or more than ten minutes underway, the Guest is entitled to a 50% refund less Service Fees, however, if a Booking is more than 50% underway, the Guest is not entitled to a refund.

 

13.   Modifications

Swimply has the right to investigate and prosecute violations of any of the above to the fullest extent of the law. In addition, and as set in these Terms, Swimply may take a range of actions against you, including but not limited to removing or disabling access to any or all of your Member Content or deactivating or canceling your Listing(s) or Swimply Account, for a violation of the Terms.

 

Swimply may access, preserve and disclose any of your information if Swimply is required to do so by law, or if it believes in good faith that it is reasonably necessary to (i) respond to claims asserted against Swimply or to comply with legal process (for example, subpoenas or warrants), (ii) enforce or administer Swimply’s agreements with users, such as these Terms, (iii) for fraud prevention, risk assessment, investigation, customer support, product development and de-bugging purposes, or (iv) protect the rights, property or safety of Swimply, its users, or members of the public. Swimply reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Collective Content that Swimply, at its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms or otherwise harmful to the Site, Application or Services.

 

Reporting Misconduct

If you feel that any Member is acting or has acted inappropriately, including but not limited to anyone who (i) engages in offensive, violent or sexually inappropriate behavior, (ii) you suspect of stealing from you, or (iii) engages in any other disturbing conduct, you should immediately report such person to the appropriate authorities and then to Swimply by contacting Swimply with your police station and report number; provided that your report will not obligate Swimply to take any action beyond that required by law (if any) or cause Swimply to incur any liability to you.

 

15.   Term, Suspension and Termination

Termination for Convenience

You may terminate your Swimply Account by canceling it on the Site or by sending Swimply an email in which you request that Swimply terminate your Swimply Account. If you cancel your Swimply Account as a Host, any confirmed Bookings will be automatically cancelled and your Guests will receive a full refund of the Accommodation Fee. No refunds of Service Fees will be provided. If you cancel your Swimply Account as a Guest, any confirmed Booking will be automatically cancelled and you will be issued a refund in accordance with the cancellation policy referenced in Section 12.

 

Termination for Cause

Swimply may immediately, without notice, terminate your Account, if (i) you have breached these Terms or other Policies referenced herein or on the Site, (ii) you have provided inaccurate, fraudulent, outdated or incomplete information during the Swimply Account registration, or Listing process or thereafter, (iii) you have violated applicable laws, regulations or third party rights, or (iv) Swimply believes in good faith that such action is reasonably necessary to protect the safety or property of other Members, Swimply or third parties, for fraud prevention, risk assessment, security or investigation purposes.

 

In addition, Swimply may deactivate or delay Listings, reviews, or other Member Content, cancel any pending or confirmed Bookings, limit your use of or access to your Swimply Account and the Site, Application or Services, temporarily or permanently revoke any special status associated with your Swimply Account, or temporarily or permanently suspend your Swimply Account if you have breached these Terms or policies, including material and non-material breaches, and if you receive one or more poor ratings from Hosts or Guests (with the definition of “poor” to be at Swimply’s sole and absolute discretion).

 

If Swimply take any of the measures described in this Section with respect to a Host, it may (i) communicate to your Guests or Hosts that a pending or confirmed Booking has been cancelled, (ii) refund your Guests in full for any and all confirmed Bookings, irrespective of applicable cancellation policies, (iii) support your Guests, on an exceptional basis, in finding potential alternative Accommodations, and (iv) you will not be entitled to any compensation for confirmed Bookings that were cancelled.

 

If your access to or use of the Site, Application and Services has been limited or your Swimply Account has been suspended or this Agreement has been terminated by Swimply, you may not register a new Swimply Account or attempt to access and use the Site, Application and Services through other Swimply Accounts.

 

16.   Taxes


Tax regulations may require Swimply to collect appropriate tax information from Hosts, or to withhold taxes from payouts to Hosts, or both. You as a Host are solely responsible for keeping the information in your tax forms current, complete and accurate. If you as a Host fail to provide Swimply with documentation that Swimply determines to be sufficient to alleviate Swimply’s obligation (if any) to withhold taxes from payments to you, Swimply reserves the right in its sole discretion to freeze all payouts to you until resolution, to withhold such amounts as required by law, or to do both.

 

You as a Host understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining (i) your applicable Tax reporting requirements, and (ii) the Taxes that should be included, and for including Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes in Listings. You are also solely responsible for remitting to the relevant authority any Taxes included or received by you. Swimply cannot and does not offer Tax-related advice to any Members.

 

You understand and acknowledge that appropriate governmental agencies, departments or authorities (the “Tax Authority”) where your Accommodation is located may require Taxes to be collected from Guests or Hosts on the amount paid for the right to use and/or occupancy of Accommodations, and to be remitted to the respective Tax Authority. The laws in jurisdictions may vary, but these taxes may be required to be collected and remitted as a percentage of the Accommodation Fees set by Hosts, a set amount per day, or other variations, and are sometimes called “occupancy taxes,” “hotel taxes,” “lodging taxes,” “transient taxes,” “sales and use taxes,” “value added taxes,” “room taxes” or “tourist taxes” (hereafter, “Occupancy Taxes”).
