By using or accessing globalstudentpads.com, a subdomain of any such websites, any mobile application for such websites or any other website operated by us on which these Terms and Conditions are posted (each referred to herein as a “Site”), you acknowledge that you agree to and are subject to the following terms and conditions, as well as the Privacy Policy (collectively, the “Terms”). If you do not fully agree to these Terms you are not authorized to access or otherwise use the Site. Under these Terms, “use” or “access” of the Site specifically includes any direct or indirect access or use of the Site or any cached version of the Site and any direct or indirect access or use of any information or content on the Site, regardless of how obtained.

Each Site is operated by Global Student Pads. Unless otherwise specified, the entity controlling the Site you are accessing is referred to herein as “GSP” “we” “us” or “our”.

You should read through all the Terms carefully. The Terms constitute a legally binding agreement between you and GSP. You are not authorized to use this Site unless you are at least 18 and able to enter into legally binding contracts. We do not knowingly collect the information of anyone under the age of 18.

Not a Party to any Rental Agreement between Users of the Site.
We urge all users to be responsible about their use of this Site and any transaction entered into as a result of either listing a property or renting a property. We do not own or manage, nor can we contract for, any rental property listed on a Site. The Sites act as a venue to allow homeowners and property managers who advertise on the Site (each, a “lister”) to offer for rent in a variety of pricing formats, a specific rental property to potential student renters (each, a “student” and, collectively with a lister, the “users”). We also may offer online booking or other tools or services to allow users to communicate with each other and enter into rental agreements or other transactions.

We are not a party to any rental or other agreement between users. This is true even if the Site allows you to book a rental or provides other ancillary products or services, as the Site may facilitate booking a rental or other tools, services or products, but we are not a party to any rental or other agreement between users.

As a result, any part of an actual or potential transaction between a student and a lister, including the quality, condition, safety or legality of the properties advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings (including the content thereof or any property review), the ability of listers to rent a property or the ability of students to pay for rental properties are solely the responsibility of each user. You acknowledge and agree that you may be required to enter into one or more separate agreements, waivers or terms and conditions prior to making a booking or purchasing a product or service and may place additional restrictions on your booking, product or service.

Responsibility for applicable laws, rules and regulations: Users agree that they are responsible for, and agree to abide by, all laws, rules and regulations applicable to their use of the Site, their use of any tool, service or product offered on the Site and any transaction they enter into on the Site or in connection with their use of the Site.

Listers further agree that they are responsible for and agree to abide by all laws, rules and regulations applicable to the listing of their rental property and the conduct of their rental business, including but not limited to credit card, data and privacy laws, rules & regulations, taxes, permit or license requirements, zoning ordinances, safety compliance and compliance with all anti-discrimination and fair housing laws, as applicable. Please be aware that, even though we are not a party to any rental transaction and assume no liability for legal or regulatory compliance pertaining to rental properties listed on the Site, there may be circumstances where we are nevertheless legally obligated (as we may determine in our sole discretion) to provide information relating to your listing in order to comply with governmental bodies in relation to investigations, litigation or administrative proceedings, and we may choose to comply with or disregard such obligation in our sole discretion. Listers who accept credit card, banking or other payment information from students agree to properly handle and safeguard all such information in accordance with applicable legal and regulatory requirements and best practices.

Travel Advisories: Although most travel is completed without a serious incident, travel to some destinations may involve more risk than others. We urge students to research the location they wish to visit and to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements and advisories issued by their local government prior to booking.

Identity Verification.
User verification on the Internet is difficult and we cannot, and do not assume any responsibility for, the confirmation of each user’s purported identity. We encourage you to communicate directly with a student or lister through the tools available on the Site, though even this does not assure you of the identity of the person with which you are communicating. We further encourage you to take other reasonable measures to assure yourself of the other person’s identity and, for students, of the property and relevant details of your booking or proposed booking.

You agree to: (i) keep your password and online ID for both your account with us and your email account secure and strictly confidential, providing it only to authorized users of your accounts, (ii) instruct each person to whom you give your online ID and password that he or she is not to disclose it to any unauthorized person, (iii) notify us immediately and select a new online ID and password if you believe your password for either your account with us or your email account may have become known to an unauthorized person, and (iv) notify us immediately if you are contacted by anyone requesting your online ID and password. We discourage you from giving anyone access to your online ID and password for your account with us and your email account. However, if you do give someone your online ID and online password, or if you fail to adequately safeguard such information, you are responsible for any and all transactions that the person performs while using your account with us or your email account, even those transactions that are fraudulent or that you did not intend or want performed.

EACH USER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT: (1) NEITHER GSP NOR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES WILL HAVE ANY LIABILITY TO ANY USER FOR ANY UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTION MADE USING ANY USER’S PASSWORD; AND (2) THE UNAUTHORIZED USE OF YOUR ONLINE ID AND PASSWORD FOR YOUR GSP ACCOUNT OR YOUR EMAIL ACCOUNT COULD CAUSE YOU TO INCUR LIABILITY TO BOTH GSP AND OTHER USERS.

Further, we may, without notice to you, suspend or cancel your listing at any time even without receiving notice from you if we suspect, in our sole discretion, that your account with us or your email account is being used in an unauthorized or fraudulent manner.

Limitations on Communications and Use of Other Users’ Information; No Spam.
You agree that, with respect to other users’ personal information that you obtain directly or indirectly from or through the Site or through any Site-related communication, transaction or software, we have granted to you a license to use such information only for: (a) Site-related communications that are not unsolicited commercial messages, (b) using services offered through the Site, and (c) inquiring about or otherwise facilitating a financial transaction between you and the other user related to the purpose of the Site (such as inquiring about or booking an online booking or charging a personal credit card). Any other purpose will require express permission from the user. You may not use any such information for any unlawful purpose or with any unlawful intent.

In all cases, you must give users an opportunity to remove themselves from your address book or database and a chance to review what information you have collected about them. In addition, under no circumstances, except as defined in this provision, may you disclose personal information about another user to any third party without both our consent and the consent of the other user. You agree that other users may use your personal information to communicate with you in accordance with this provision. Further, you agree that you will protect other users’ personal information with the same degree of care that you protect your own confidential information (using at minimum a reasonable standard of care), and you assume all liability for the misuse, loss, or unauthorized transfer of such information.

We do not tolerate spam or unsolicited commercial electronic communications of any kind. Therefore, without limiting the foregoing, you are not licensed to add a Site user, even a user who has rented a property from you or to you, to your mailing list (email or physical mail) without the user’s express consent. You may not use any tool or service on the Site to send spam or unsolicited commercial electronic communications of any kind or in any other way that would violate these Terms.

We are not responsible for user contributed content. “User contributed content” also includes information that a user or any other person provided to a third party website or mobile application which is then provided to our Site by a tool we offer.

We reserve the right to decline to permit the posting on the Site, or to remove from the Site, any user contributed content that fails to meet our guidelines, any other guidelines posted on a Site or if it otherwise violates these Terms, each as determined in our discretion.

Finally, we reserve the right (but do not assume the obligation) to edit a lister’s content or user contributed content in a non-substantive manner solely to cause the content to comply with our content guidelines or formatting requirements or to provide services to listers to create or improve on listings, in accordance with information we have about the property listed.

We do not represent or warrant that any of the copy, content, property reviews, property location, suitability, pricing or availability information published on the Site is accurate or up-to-date even in the case where prospective students have searched for specific special offers, dates, or types of properties. We may from time to time provide or facilitate services to listers to create or improve the quality of their property listings. We also may from time to time create new, or otherwise change, the location or geographic descriptions we use to identify properties in their listings and search results. Consequently, we may change the location or geographic description associated with any property listing. However, we assume no responsibility to verify property listing content or the accuracy of the location. Listers are solely responsible for ensuring the accuracy of listing content and location or geographic descriptions and agree to promptly correct (or contact us to correct) any inaccuracy, and students are solely responsible for verifying the accuracy of such content and descriptions.

You further grant us and our affiliates the ability to copyright and protect the user contributed content, including the images, copy, and content available via any lister’s listing, from the unauthorized use by unaffiliated third parties who may, from time to time, attempt to pirate such information via electronic or other means.
