1 Scope of IBooked.online Services
1.1 Scope of the iBooked.online Platform: iBooked.online is an online platform designed to enable hosts (“Hosts”) to build and manage their own websites. This platform equips Hosts with the tools and services necessary for the creation, design, and maintenance of websites tailored to showcase and promote their individual services (“Host Services”). These services can encompass a variety of offerings, such as rental properties (“Accommodations”), various activities and experiences (“Experiences”), events (“Events”), and other related services. The platform supports Hosts in establishing a direct online presence, allowing them to connect and transact directly with their clients or customers (“Guests”) who visit these websites. It’s important to note that iBooked.online operates solely as a provider of website-building tools and services, and does not act as an intermediary or booking agent for the transactions or interactions that occur on the websites created by the Hosts.
1.2 When you choose to use the iBooked.online Platform as a Host (or Co-Host), it is important to understand that your relationship with iBooked.online is that of a client purchasing a service, specifically a website, and not that of an independent contractor, employee, agent, joint venturer, or partner of iBooked.online. As a Host, you operate independently and for your own benefit, making decisions about your listings and services at your discretion. iBooked.online provides the platform and associated services, but does not direct or control your actions or business decisions in any capacity. The role of iBooked.online is limited to facilitating the availability of the Platform and supporting services and does not extend to any form of direct involvement in the activities of Hosts beyond the provision of these services.
1.3 While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, IBooked.online 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 (as defined below), or (iii) the performance or conduct of any Member or third party. IBooked.online does not endorse any Member, Listing or Host Services. You should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to stay in an Accommodation, participate in an Experience or Event or use other Host Services, accept a booking request from a Guest, or communicate and interact with other Members, whether online or in person. Verified Images (as defined below) are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of a Listing at the time the photograph was taken, and are therefore not an endorsement by IBooked.online of any Host or Listing.
1.4 When you choose to use the iBooked.online Platform as a Host (or Co-Host), it is important to understand that your relationship with iBooked.online is that of a client purchasing a service, specifically a website, and not that of an independent contractor, employee, agent, joint venturer, or partner of iBooked.online. As a Host, you operate independently and for your own benefit, making decisions about your listings and services at your discretion. iBooked.online provides the platform and associated services, but does not direct or control your actions or business decisions in any capacity. The role of iBooked.online is limited to facilitating the availability of the Platform and supporting services and does not extend to any form of direct involvement in the activities of Hosts beyond the provision of these services.
1.5 To promote the IBooked.online Platform and to increase the exposure of Listings to potential Guests, Listings and other Member Content may be displayed on other websites, in applications, within emails, and in online and offline advertisements. To assist Members who speak different languages, Listings and other Member Content may be translated, in whole or in part, into other languages. IBooked.online cannot guarantee the accuracy or quality of such translations and Members are responsible for reviewing and verifying the accuracy of such translations. The IBooked.online Platform may contain translations powered by Google. Google disclaims all warranties related to the translations, express or implied, including any warranties of accuracy, reliability, and any implied warranties for merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.
1.6 The IBooked.online Platform may contain links to third-party websites or resources (“Third-Party Services”). Such Third-Party Services may be subject to different terms and conditions and privacy practices. IBooked.online is not responsible or liable for the availability or accuracy of such Third-Party Services, or the content, products, or services available from such Third-Party Services. Links to such Third-Party Services are not an endorsement by IBooked.online of such Third-Party Services.
1.7 Due to the nature of the Internet, IBooked.online cannot guarantee the continuous and uninterrupted availability and accessibility of the IBooked.online Platform. IBooked.online may restrict the availability of the IBooked.online Platform or certain areas or features thereof, if this is necessary in view of capacity limits, the security or integrity of our servers, or to carry out maintenance measures that ensure the proper or improved functioning of the IBooked.online Platform. IBooked.online may improve, enhance and modify the IBooked.online Platform and introduce new IBooked.online Services from time to time.
2 Modification of these Terms
iBooked.online reserves the right to modify these Terms at any time. Changes will become effective immediately upon posting the revised Terms on the iBooked.online Platform, indicated by an updated “Last Updated” date. It is your responsibility to regularly review these Terms to stay informed of any modifications, as we will not send individual email notifications for these changes. Your continued access to or use of the iBooked.online Platform after such modifications are posted signifies your acceptance of and agreement to the revised Terms. If you disagree with any changes to the Terms, you retain the right to terminate this Agreement with immediate effect. This can be done by ceasing the use of the iBooked.online Platform and, where applicable, deactivating your account. By continuing to access or use the iBooked.online Platform after the effective date of any modifications, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms. Should you not agree with the new terms, you should discontinue using the iBooked.online Platform.

6.2 Any applicable Service Fees (including any applicable Taxes) will be displayed to a Host or Guest prior to publishing or booking a Listing.

7 Terms specific for Hosts
7.1 Terms applicable to all Listings
7.1.1 When creating a Listing through the IBooked.online Platform you must (i) provide complete and accurate information about your Host Service (such as listing description, location, and calendar availability), (ii) disclose any deficiencies, restrictions (such as house rules) and requirements that apply (such as any minimum age, proficiency or fitness requirements for an Experience) and (iii) provide any other pertinent information requested by IBooked.online. You are responsible for keeping your Listing information (including calendar availability) up-to-date at all times.
7.1.2 You are solely responsible for setting a price (including any Taxes if applicable, or charges such as cleaning fees) for your Listing (“Listing Fee”). Once a Guest requests a booking of your Listing, you may not request that the Guest pays a higher price than in the booking request.
7.1.3 Any terms and conditions included in your Listing, in particular in relation to cancellations, must not conflict with these Terms or the relevant cancellation policy for your Listing.
7.1.4 Pictures, animations or videos (collectively, “Images“) used in your Listings must accurately reflect the quality and condition of your Host Services. IBooked.online reserves the right to require that Listings have a minimum number of Images of a certain format, size and resolution.
7.1.5 The placement and ranking of Listings in search results on the IBooked.online Platform may vary and depend on a variety of factors, such as Guest search parameters and preferences, Host requirements, price and calendar availability, number and quality of Images, customer service and cancellation history, Reviews and Ratings, type of Host Service, and/or ease of booking.
7.1.6 When you accept or have pre-approved a booking request by a Guest, you are entering into a legally binding agreement with the Guest and are required to provide your Host Service(s) to the Guest as described in your Listing when the booking request is made. You also agree to pay the applicable Host Fee and any applicable Taxes.
7.1.7 IBooked.online recommends that Hosts obtain appropriate insurance for their Host Services. Please review any respective insurance policy carefully, and in particular 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 has booked for, if applicable) while staying at your Accommodation or participating in your Experience, Event or other Host Service.
7.2 Listing Accommodations
7.2.1 You represent and warrant that any Listing you post and the booking of, or a Guest’s stay at, an Accommodation will (i) not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties, such as homeowners association, condominium, or other agreements, and (ii) comply with all applicable laws (such as zoning laws), Tax requirements, and other rules and regulations (including having all required permits, licenses and registrations). 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 any individuals the Guest invites to the Accommodation.
8 Terms specific for Guests
8.1 Terms applicable to all bookings
8.1.1 Booking Initiation: On the iBooked.online Platform, guests have the opportunity to book listings created by Hosts. It’s important to note that iBooked.online merely provides the technology to host these listings via the website creation service and does not act as the booking provider. When a guest chooses to book a listing, they engage directly with the Host, not iBooked.online. Before booking, any applicable fees like Listing Fee, Security Deposit, Guest Fee, and Taxes (collectively referred to as “Total Fees”) will be clearly outlined to the guest. By proceeding with the booking, the guest agrees to pay these Total Fees as part of the booking process with the Host.
8.1.2 Booking Confirmation and Agreement: When a guest receives a booking confirmation, it signifies the formation of a legally binding agreement directly between the guest and the Host. iBooked.online’s role is limited to facilitating the platform where this interaction occurs. The terms of this agreement include any additional Host-specific terms and conditions, such as cancellation policies and other rules or restrictions outlined in the listing. While iBooked.online may facilitate the payment process, it acts solely as an intermediary in this transaction.
8.1.3 Responsibilities in Group Bookings: If a guest books a Host service for additional guests, it is the primary guest’s responsibility to ensure that all additional guests meet the requirements set by the Host and agree to the applicable terms and conditions. This includes obtaining agreement from the additional guests to adhere to the Host’s rules and restrictions. In cases where one of the additional guests is a minor, the primary guest booking the service must have the legal authority to act on behalf of the minor and is responsible for their supervision during the service.
8.2 Booking Accommodations
8.2.1 You understand that a confirmed booking of an Accommodation (“Accommodation Booking”) is a limited license granted to you by the Host to enter, occupy and use the Accommodation for the duration of your stay, during which time the Host (only where and to the extent permitted by applicable law) retains the right to re-enter the Accommodation, in accordance with your agreement with the Host.
8.2.2 You agree to leave the Accommodation no later than the checkout time 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 (“Overstay”), you no longer have a license to stay in the Accommodation 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 twenty-four (24) hour period (or any portion thereof) that you Overstay, an additional nightly fee of up to two (2) times the average nightly Listing Fee originally paid by you to cover the inconvenience suffered by the Host, plus all applicable Guest Fees, Taxes, and any legal expenses incurred by the Host to make you leave (collectively, “Overstay Fees“). Overstay Fees for late checkouts on the checkout date that do not impact upcoming bookings may be limited to the additional costs incurred by the Host as a result of such Overstay. If you Overstay at an Accommodation, you authorize IBooked.online (via IBooked.online Payments) 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.
8.3 Booking Experiences, Events and other Host Services
8.3.1 You should carefully review the description of any Experience, Event or other Host Service you intend to book to ensure you (and any additional guests you are booking for) meet any minimum age, proficiency, fitness or other requirements which the Host has specified in their Listing. At your sole discretion you may want to inform the Host of any medical or physical conditions, or other circumstances that may impact your and any additional guest’s ability to participate in any Experience, Event or other Host Service. In addition, certain laws, like the minimum legal drinking age in the location of the Experience, Event or other Host Service, may also apply. You are responsible for identifying, understanding, and complying with all laws, rules and regulations that apply to your participation in an Experience, Event or other Host Service.
8.3.2 Before and during an Experience, Event or other Host Service you must at all times adhere to the Hosts’ instructions.
8.3.3 You may not bring any additional individuals to an Experience, Event or other Host Service unless such an individual was added by you as an additional guest during the booking process on the IBooked.online Platform.
9. Booking Modifications, Cancellations, and Refunds
9.1 Responsibility for Booking Changes: Modifications to bookings, including changes in dates, guest numbers, or other details, are to be arranged directly between the Host and the Guest. Guests are encouraged to contact the Host using the provided contact information on their website or phone number for any booking modifications. iBooked.online does not facilitate these modifications.
9.2 Cancellation by Guests: Guests have the ability to cancel a booking in accordance with the cancellation policy set by the Host. The handling of refunds and any associated cancellation fees are responsibilities that fall directly between the Guest and the Host. iBooked.online plays no role in the processing or mediation of these cancellations and refunds.
9.3 Cancellation by Hosts: If a Host cancels a confirmed booking, they are responsible for issuing a full refund to the Guest as per their cancellation policy. iBooked.online does not manage, process, or mediate these refunds.
9.4 Cancellations due to External Factors: For services such as Experiences or Events, if external factors like weather pose a safety risk or prevent the Host from offering the service safely, the Host may cancel the service. Any consequent arrangements for refunds or rebookings are to be handled directly by the Host.
9.5 iBooked.online’s Limited Involvement: iBooked.online may, in rare and exceptional circumstances, decide to cancel a booking due to extenuating circumstances or to protect the safety and interests of other users or the platform. However, such decisions are limited and do not reflect iBooked.online’s responsibility for handling regular booking cancellations or refunds.
9.6 Recovery of Refunds by Hosts: In situations where a refund is provided to a Guest after the Host has already been paid, it is the Host’s responsibility to manage the financial aspects of that refund. iBooked.online is not involved in the recovery or processing of refunds from Hosts.
9.7 Communication for Refund Requests: Any communication related to refund requests or associated financial matters should be conducted directly between the Guest and the Host. iBooked.online does not facilitate or oversee these communications or transactions.
10. Damage to Accommodations and Disputes Between Members
10.1 Guest Responsibility: As a Guest, you are accountable for leaving the Accommodation in the same condition as when you arrived. This responsibility extends to any damage to the Accommodation or its contents caused by you or any individuals you have allowed access to the property, excluding the Host and any individuals the Host may have permitted entry.
10.2 Addressing Damage Claims: If a Host alleges that a Guest has caused damage to an Accommodation (“Damage Claim”), it is the responsibility of the Guest and the Host to resolve this claim between themselves. iBooked.online is not involved in the assessment, negotiation, or resolution of such Damage Claims. Any arrangements for compensation or repair must be agreed upon directly between the Guest and the Host.
10.3 Cooperation in Resolving Disputes: In the event of a dispute or Damage Claim, Members (both Guests and Hosts) are encouraged to communicate and cooperate with each other in good faith to resolve the matter. This may involve providing necessary information or taking specific actions as mutually agreed upon to address any issues related to the Accommodation or associated services.
10.4 Insurance Claims: Guests and Hosts are responsible for addressing any insurance claims related to damage independently. This includes making claims under relevant insurance policies such as homeowner’s, renter’s, or other types of insurance. iBooked.online does not facilitate or participate in the insurance claim process.
13.1 Host Responsibility for Taxes: As a Host, you are entirely responsible for understanding and fulfilling your obligations to report, collect, remit, or include in your Listing Fees any taxes that may apply. This includes but is not limited to indirect sales taxes, occupancy tax, tourist taxes, or income taxes (“Taxes”). iBooked.online does not participate in these tax-related activities. It is the Host’s responsibility to ensure their website is set up correctly to manage these tax obligations.
13.2 Tax Information and Compliance: Hosts are required to provide any necessary tax information as per the regulations of their jurisdiction. This could include providing a tax number or other documentation to demonstrate compliance with local tax laws. Hosts should be aware that failure to provide this information may result in withheld payouts until such documentation is furnished and verified.
13.3 Local Tax Laws and Obligations: Tax requirements vary by location and may be imposed by government agencies where the Accommodation is located. These taxes, often referred to as “transient occupancy taxes,” “hotel taxes,” “lodging taxes,” “city taxes,” “room taxes,” or “tourist taxes,” must be managed directly by the Host.
13.4 iBooked.online’s Non-Involvement in Tax Collection: iBooked.online does not engage in the collection or remittance of Occupancy Taxes on behalf of Hosts or Guests. The responsibility to determine, collect, and remit the correct amount of taxes to the relevant Tax Authorities lies entirely with the Host. Any tax-related information on the platform is provided for general guidance and should not be considered as tax advice.
13.5 Discharge of Tax Obligations: Hosts are solely responsible for ensuring that all taxes collected are fully discharged to the appropriate Tax Authorities. iBooked.online will not be liable for any shortfall in tax collection or remittance by the Host.
13.6 Changes to Tax Collection Practices: iBooked.online reserves the right to update or change its policy on tax collection and remittance. However, such changes will be communicated to Hosts, and the primary responsibility for tax collection and remittance will continue to lie with the Hosts.
