Terms and Conditions
1. Conditions of Use
This website is provided for Owners of vacation rental properties to list the properties they personally OWN for Rental and/or Sale. The person listing the property is responsible for the accuracy and content of the listing. Villa-Websites.com does not verify this content, and is not responsible for any claims made by the Owner. You agree to assume all liability for any transactions arising out of the use of this website.
Your Privacy and security is important to us. You agree that the information you choose to enter in your personal profile will be publicly available on the Site and will be displayed as part of your listing for potential Renters to contact you. The only information we do not publicly disclose is your email address.
To protect your email address, an enquiry form is included as part of your listing and can be used for any potential Renters to send an enquiry to you. Therefore the email address in your personal profile must be kept up to date.
By registering an account, you consent to us sending you our newsletters. These newsletters are our primary method of communicating with you and will keep you informed of any changes to our website and will notify you of any changes and updates to our services in general.
3. Content Policy
The Owner is responsible for the originality of the content, and that submitted photographs are not in violation of any copyrights. Villa-Websites.com bears no responsibility for any copyright violations of listing contents. Villa-Websites.com reserves the right to modify the listing or remove it entirely with or without notification, for any reason. Villa-Websites.com does not allow any profanity, pornography, discriminatory, unlawful, or fraudulent activity. A listing may only be made for a property for rental and/or sale by the Owner in Florida, USA.
Any listing which points to other rental/sales sites, multiple listing sites (e.g. with content such as "all of our villas are close to Disney", etc), management company sites, commercial sites (e.g. Hundreds of Disney Vacation Rentals Inc, etc) or sites that are not the Owners personal website for marketing their property, is in violation of this policy and the listing will be removed immediately.
If a listing contains contact information which is no longer effective then the listing may be removed. Villa-Websites.com reserves the right to ban any users from future usage of this website if they violate this content policy.
4. Villa/Property Descriptions
The Owners must take all reasonable care to ensure that all details, descriptions, images and prices of properties appearing on the Site are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system; however, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we do not warrant that the descriptions, or other content available on the Site is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. Villa-Websites.com reserves the right to alter or delete any information submitted for a property listing.
5. Your Account
You warrant that the personal information which you are required to provide when you register as an Owner or Renter is true, accurate and current in all respects. You agree not to impersonate any other person or entity or to use a false name or a name that you are not authorised to use.
If your personal profile contains contact information which is no longer effective (such as an invalid website address, e-mail address or phone number) then your account may be suspended or terminated without notice.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for taking all reasonable measures to prevent unauthorised access to your account. You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. If you have reason to believe that your password has become known to somebody else, or is likely to be used in any way that is unauthorised by you, you should contact us immediately. If you forget your password we will resend it, upon your request, to the email address which you specified when you registered.
6. Enquiries about Listings
The listing contains contact information for the Owner of the property, and potential Renters must contact this person directly for enquiries about the property. Villa-Websites.com makes no reservation arrangements, and is not involved in the rental transaction. The Owner receiving an enquiry is responsible for ascertaining the legitimacy of the inquiry. Villa-Websites.com is not responsible for any spam or fraudulent activity arising out of these enquiries.
The enquiry form is not to be used for any other purpose than to make a genuine enquiry in relation to renting or buying the property listed. Any other use of the enquiry form, such as to transmit unsolicited offers of services of any nature to the Owner, will be classed as abuse and is in violation of these Terms and Conditions. We will take any appropriate action necessary and if applicable, the account of the originator will be terminated immediately.
Enquiries generated via the enquiry form on the site may be monitored to identify any unusual patterns of activity which may in turn indicate possible abuse or fraudulent activity.
Should an Owner receive a direct enquiry that they cannot fulfil they should inform the Site Administrator who will then pass the details on to other Owners listed on the Site.
Should an Owner receive a general enquiry that they cannot fulfil there is no need to reply.
Under no circumstances should any enquiries be passed to "third parties" not listed on the Site.
There is currently NO FEE for listing a property.
