SUBSTITUTION OF PROPERTIES; ADVERTISING MORE THAN ONE PROPERTY
Each advertisement must relate to an individual and uniquely identified property, unless you otherwise purchased a Subscription package that expressly allows for substitution of properties. This means that:
(i) The property in an advertisement may not be substituted for another property without our consent. We may approve a request if the property that was listed was sold or the contract with the owner was cancelled and the Seller provides sufficient proof thereof and completes any additional request forms we may request. The term of the subscription for any substituted property shall be the same as the term of the originally advertised property (i.e., the term will not be extended past the original term).
If a Seller submits changes to an existing advertisement that, if approved, would substantially alter the advertisement to make it that of another property, then we have the right to terminate the advertisement and may choose, in our sole discretion, to retain any fees associated with the term of the previously existing advertisement as compensation for the violation of this condition.
(ii) The advertisement specifically cannot be a mere example of properties in a given area. Only one property can appear on each advertisement, unless it is a property with multiple units on the same Website and additional advertising units are purchased. We reserve the right to amend the copy or remove any advertisement when more than one property is described in such advertisement, and may choose, in our sole discretion to retain any fees associated with the initial term of such non-conforming listing as compensation for the violation of this condition.
UNAUTHORIZED PAYMENT METHODS; SUBSCRIPTION PAYMENTS
We are not a party to any payment transaction between Sellers and Buyers. No Seller may request any Buyer to mail cash, or utilize any instant-cash wire transfer service such as PayPal, Western Union or MoneyGram in payment for all or part of a transaction. Any violation of this term or any other unacceptable payment methods that may be posted on the Website may result in the immediate removal of the non-conforming advertisement from the Website without notice to the Seller and without refund. From time to time, we may become aware of Users attempting to conduct a transaction that would involve an unauthorized payment method or a fraudulent payment method. Ideally, we hope to be able to assist Users in avoiding such transactions, but we assume no liability or responsibility to do so or to inform users of any such actual or suspected activity. To the extent we accept funds and remit them, the Subscriber agrees to be responsible for additional service fees commensurate with the costs of accepting said funds, including credit card processing fees and/or bank fees.
Payment for subscriptions must be made to us in U.S. Dollars paid either by major credit or debit card, or when automation is available, an ACH check drawn on a U.S. bank.
SUBSCRIPTION TERM, REFUND REQUESTS, AND TERMINATION OR TRANSFER OF ADVERTISEMENTS
The Company reserves the right to charge a subscription fee to any Seller. No subscription fee shall be due from Seller the first year the Seller submits a vacation property from an affiliated site if the subscription expressly includes access to the Company.
Generally, no refunds are available unless a Seller qualifies for a refund under any guarantee program we may have in effect. If you believe you qualify for a refund under a guarantee we are offering, you may contact customer support and include your customer number and reason for dissatisfaction. We will then determine, in accordance with the applicable guarantee program, whether any refund is due.
Refund Requests for Advertisement Not Completed
In the event you purchase a subscription for an advertisement but do not complete the creation of the advertisement or the advertisement does not get posted after purchase for any other reason, refund requests will be considered only during the first three (3) days following the purchase date.

An Agreement may be terminated immediately and without notice (i) if the other party materially defaults in the performance of any of its material obligations under these Terms and/or the underlying Agreement and does not cure the default within thirty (30) days after receipt of notice in writing from the non-defaulting party or thirty (30) days prior to the Arrival Date, whichever occurs first; (ii) if the other party commences insolvency, receivership, or bankruptcy proceeding or any other proceedings for the settlement of its debts, which are not dismissed or otherwise resolved in its favor within 60 days thereafter; (iii) if the other party makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors; or (iv) if the other party dissolves or ceases to conduct business in the ordinary course.
Our Right to Terminate an Advertisement
If, in our sole discretion, any Seller submits unsuitable material to our Website or into our database, misuses the Website or our online system or is in material breach of these Terms, we reserve the right to terminate such Seller’s subscription(s) immediately without refund. In addition, if we become aware of or receive a complaint or a series of complaints from any User or other third party regarding a Seller’s advertisement or practices that, in our sole discretion, warrants the immediate removal of such Seller’s advertisement from the Website (for example, and without limitation, if a Seller double-books a property for multiple guests or itself on the same date, or engages in any practice that, in our sole discretion, would be considered unfair or improper within the vacation industry, or if we receive a complaint that any advertisement’s content infringes on the rights of a third party), then we may immediately terminate such Seller’s subscription(s) without notice to the Seller and without refund.

LIMITATIONS ON COMMUNICATION
You agree that, with respect to other Users’ personal information that you obtain directly or indirectly from or through the Website or through any Website-related communication, transaction or software, we have granted to you a license to use such information only for: (a) Website-related communications that are not unsolicited commercial messages, (b) using services offered through the Website, and (c) inquiring about or otherwise facilitating a financial transaction between you and the other User related to the purpose of the Website (such as inquiring about or booking an online booking or charging a personal credit card).

No Specific Buyer Identified
Although your timeshare(s) will be exposed to potential buyers as a result of using our Website, The Company has not identified a specific buyer at the present time.
Under some state law, including Florida, language exists that we believe does not apply to us but, in an abundance of caution, we choose to voluntarily provide the requested disclosures, but do not guarantee that we will provide such disclosures in the future. Although we provide advertisements on our Website with your subscription, the Company may be deemed to operate within the timeshare resale marketplace. Through various advertising partnerships, the Website provides its Users with, among other things, a web-based network for timeshare buyers, sellers, and users. The Company does not itself engage in real estate broker or transfer services on your behalf or anyone else. Inquiries and communications are between the Seller and the inquiring party directly. The Company does not negotiate on behalf of Sellers or Buyers. The Company can refer you to a licensed real estate broker or attorney to provide whatever real estate brokerage or legal services are necessary upon request. You authorize all inquiries/communications regarding a particular property to be submitted to an affiliated or unaffiliated licensed real estate brokerage/agent (“Professional”) by the Company and that Professional may contact the User, the inquiring party, and/or any third party and attempt to consummate a transaction. The Company and broker/agent shall not be liable if an inquiry is not forwarded or does not result in sale/use or results in sale or use of a different property. Users and inquirers are encouraged to reply timely to communication in order to reduce risk of a lost transaction. The terms of any agreement between a real estate broker/agent and you are not endorsed or recommended by the Company. Additional fees beyond the Company subscription may apply such as transaction fees, broker commissions, and/or closing costs charged to either the buyer and/or seller based upon the terms of a purchase and sale contract. Market conditions fluctuate and influence every transaction. The Company does not guarantee that a property can be used or sold at any particular price or within any particular period of time. Due to privacy concerns, direct contact information for Buyers or Sellers is not available on the Website.
If you or your timeshare are subject to Florida Law, we provide the following disclosures pursuant to Florida Statute §721.205, THEREFORE you, the User, agree and understand that:
(i) Upon the sale of a timeshare, additional cost to third parties over which we have no control may be due including resort transfer fees, title fees and costs, government recording fees and taxes. §721.205 (1)(a)1 and 2, F.S.
(ii) We recommend Users utilize a licensed title agency to administer the closing of a timeshare to avoid falling victim to fraud or excessive demands by a third party.
(iii) The owner of the timeshare remains obligated for all fees and costs associated with the timeshare payable to any owner association, finance company or other provider with whom the owner has contracted. §721.205(1)(a)1 and 2, F.S.
(iv) Neither we, the Website, nor our agents have stated or implied, directly or indirectly, that we will provide direct sales or resale brokerage services other than the advertising of the Timeshare Ownership(s) for sale or rent by User. §721.205(2)(a), F.S. (except as identified below if you select Assisted Listing services).

We do not specifically advertise your Timeshare at any timeshare resort or make visits to any timeshare resort as part of our services. Your Timeshare is presented through the Website only.
SELLERS – FOR SALE BY OWNER (“FSBO SELLER”)

We recommend that you use a licensed bonded title company to perform the closing of any contract and urge you to call us for a recommendation.

You agree to pay the Inspection Price listed in the Traveler Agreement and that is the cost of the right that Owner is granting you to utilize the Stay which is made available to you and others to advertise the Timeshare. Should you desire to purchase a Timeshare property at the Resort following the use of the Stay, you will be credited the entire Inspection Price toward any future purchase price. However, you are under no obligation to purchase any Timeshare property, and unless otherwise stated in the advertisement, under no obligation to take any tour or listen to any solicitation. Additionally, although the Owner must give you a credit for the Inspection Privilege Price towards the sales price, the Owner is under no obligation to sell the Timeshare property. It is not expected that there will be sales taxes, resort fees, or hotel taxes due on the Stay unless otherwise indicated in your paperwork, but if a government entity determines that such taxes are due, you, the Traveler, and the Owner are jointly and severally liable for such taxes and you indemnify us from any liability related thereto.
You agree that once the Stay is reserved by the Owner, there are no refunds or changes. If possible, we may assist in contacting the Owner to make changes; however, we cannot and do not promise that such changes to the Stay will be accepted by the Resort or that the Owner will cooperate in making such changes. Regardless of how much notice you have given for a proposed change, you understand that no such changes are guaranteed and that you are still responsible for the trial use fees even if life events, Acts of God, or the Resort actions occur that make it impossible for you to use the Stay. Travel insurance is available from third parties to assist with some unforeseen events and we encourage all Travelers to consider purchasing the appropriate travel insurance.
You understand that the Resort may have additional fees for services, not included as part of the Stay Inspection Price, which are charged by the Resort to all those who utilize a Timeshare at that Resort or those that utilize particular services whether they are Owners or not (“Daily Fees”). Daily Fees vary at different timeshare resorts and can include, without limiting the types of fees applicable to your Stay, wifi access fees, local phone call fees, towel exchange fees, activity fees, extra cleaning fees (beyond the standard cleaning done by the Resort for all guests), transportation fees, amenity fees (beyond the standard amenities included for all guests), etc.
Additionally, the Owner or Resort in some cases may have the legal right to change or cancel a reservation for the Stay or in otherwise interrupt or disrupt the enjoyment of the Resort during your Stay (“Owner Interruption”). You agree that we are not responsible for an Owner Interruption and that although we will do what we can to return the Inspection Price to you we are not required or obligated to do so. You understand that the claim for refund that you and Stay Guests have for an Owner Interruption is against the Owner of the Timeshare property or the Resort.
OWNER – INSPECTION USE
You have agreed to make a reservation for the person identified in the Owner Agreement (“Traveler”) so that the Traveler and others accompanying them OR third parties designated in writing by the Traveler (“Stay Guests”) and list them with the Resort as a “Guest”, “Guest Reservation”, or similar term used by that Resort to mean those using the Stay. The Traveler has agreed to be responsible for their actions and the actions of Stay Guests, including compliance with all the rules applicable to any persons staying at the Resort. Traveler has agreed to reimburse you for any damage caused at the Resort during the Stay for which the Resort holds you responsible. You understand and agree that we are not responsible for such damages.
You represent and state that you are the owner of a Timeshare Property at the Resort identified in the Owner Agreement and that you have the right to reserve a Stay at the Resort for the Stay either as owner, a representative of owner, an officer with authority to bind a business entity, etc. After you have made a reservation the Traveler and/or Stay Guests, you agree that you will provide this information (“Confirmation”) to us and to the Traveler at our request. You are responsible to verify the information provided in the Owner Agreement and verify that the size of the unit, the dates for the Stay, and all other information are accurately reflected in the Confirmation and also reflect the description of the Timeshare property for which you are Owner. We may hold any monies due to you under the Owner Agreement until the Confirmation is received and verified by us and/or the Traveler.
You agree that you will not interfere in any way with the Stay for any reason. You understand that by making the reservation you will not be able to deposit the Stay with any resort or third party exchange program nor to have access to the right to use that is used for the Stay and will not commit the Timeshare property to any third party for which you have received Confirmation.
Should you or the Resort interfere with the Stay for any reason including any disruption of the enjoyment of the resort by the Traveler and/or Stay Guests during the Stay (“Owner Interruption”), you agree to pay liquidated damages to the Traveler and/or Stay Guests damages in the amount of the cost of alternate accommodations made by the Traveler during the time covered by the Stay and all costs associated with changing accommodations. If we may make substitute accommodations for the Traveler, you agree to reimburse us rather than the Traveler for those accommodations. Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any claim the Traveler and/or Stay Guests make against us for an Owner Interruption.
IMPORTANT: Before signing the Owner Agreement, you should carefully review your original timeshare purchase contract and other documents to determine what reservations you can make for the Traveler and if there are any restrictions or special conditions applicable to the use by third parties of your Timeshare property. If you decide to sell your Timeshare property, you also need to review them to determine whether the developer has reserved a first right of refusal (“ROFR”) or other option to purchase your interest or to determine whether there are any restrictions or special conditions applicable to resales. If you require legal advice, please contact an experienced timeshare lawyer to assist you. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to create a partnership or joint venture between you and us or to authorize you to act as the agent for us or to permit you to undertake or bind us to any contract or undertaking. Since the Traveler is visiting for an Inspection Privilege, it is not expected that there will be sales taxes, resort fees, or hotel taxes due on the Stay unless otherwise indicated in your paperwork, but if a government entity determines that such taxes are due, you, the Owner, and the Traveler are jointly and severally liable for such taxes and you indemnify us from any liability related thereto.
