When the User signs up as a Member of the Platform, the User agrees to Beazy’s Terms of Service, Community Rules, and Privacy Policy when prompted.

2. PLATFORM USAGE


2.1 Eligibility to Use the Beazy Service

The Platform is offered and available to Users who are eighteen (18) years of age or older who can form legally binding contracts. By using the Platform, the User represents and warrants that:

1) they are at least eighteen (18) years old;

2) they can form a binding contract with Beazy and other Users;

3) they submitted accurate and truthful account, registration, identity, and verification information and documents; and

4) they meet all of the foregoing eligibility requirements. If the User does not meet all of these requirements, they must not access or use the Platform.

We have the right to disable any Beazy Account, Profile, username, password or other identifier, whether chosen by the User or provided by us, at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason, including if, in our opinion, the User has violated any provision of the Terms of Service.


2.2  Account Registration

In order to access certain features of the Platform, the User must register or sign-up to create a Beazy Account, either by providing their email address and creating a password or through a third-party networking account, including Facebook, LinkedIn and Google accounts. After signing up, a User profile is created. If a business display name is used by the User while registering, the User agrees and personally guarantees that they have the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement, and agrees that they, individually, and the business entity (including any and all of the business’ owners, officers, directors, agents, and joint venturers) are legally bound by the provisions of the Terms. The User may not assign or transfer their Beazy Account to another party.

Registering a standard Beazy account is free of charge.

The User promises to update the information and documentation provided to Beazy in the event of any changes to their identity information and documentation, contact information, or background.


2.3 Beazy’s Role

Beazy's responsibilities are limited to:

(i) facilitating the availability of the Platform; and

(ii) serving as the limited payment collection agent of Users for the purpose of accepting payments from the Renter, Buyer, or third-party cardholder and/or bank account holder on behalf of the Owner or Seller, while assessing any applicable transaction fees and costs.

Beazy does not act as an insurer, broker, or as a contracting agent. Any agreement a User enters into with any other User is between these two Users only.

Each Beazy Account is personal to the User and the User must not in any circumstance provide any other person with access to the Platform or portions of it using their username, password or other security information.

Beazy cannot guarantee the trust, accuracy, or legality of Listings, Profiles and Projects and the ability for Renters to rent and pay for Listings, Providers to sell or rent out Listings, Buyers to purchase and pay for Listings, Users to apply to Projects. Beazy cannot ensure that a member will complete a rental or purchase or guarantee the true identity, nationality, and age of a User.

Beazy recommends that the User communicates directly with other Users of the Platform to conduct their own assessment of another User, and we strongly recommend the Users to not transact with another User when they are not comfortable with a potential transaction.

2.4. User Agreements

For any rental or purchase processed on the Beazy Platform, the User understands and agrees that Beazy's terms of service and community rules, in conjunction with their conversation, effectively establishes that a rental took place between both parties, effectively establishing a binding legal agreement between both Users.


2.5. Transaction Fees and Costs

The Usage of the Platform itself is free of charge.

Once a Transaction is processed on Beazy, we process payment from the Renter or Buyer and remit payment to the Provider of the Listing. We may use third-party payment providers to process transactions. A transaction fee of 20% of the total transaction amount which includes VAT (if applicable) is charged by Beazy to the Provider. This transaction fee automatically includes Insurance Coverage for the Listing being rented, following the terms specified in our Insurance Policy (www.beazy.co/insurance). By using the Platform, the User agrees to pay us and receive payment through our payment providers (such as Stripe) to process transactions, and the User agrees to the terms and conditions and privacy policies of our third-party providers.

By providing Beazy with payment credentials and billing information, the User authorizes Beazy and any third-party payment processors and/or service providers used by Beazy, to store their payment credentials (whether it is a personal or business account) and billing information for future use by them, and for future charges for any unpaid balances the User may owe to a Provider, and/or Beazy.

The User authorizes Beazy, or the User and the third-party cardholder and/or bank account holder agree that the third-party cardholder and/or bank account holder have authorized Beazy, to use stored payment credentials and billing information for any unpaid balances of Transaction Costs that include, but are not limited to, rental fees, transaction fees, service fees (Provider service fees), Listing fees, Insurance fees, any amounts owed by the User or the third-party cardholder and/or bank account holder to a Provider, and/or Beazy, and/or amounts that the User or the third-party cardholder and/or bank account holder have reported to any associated chargeback or disputed charge fees.

Beazy will pursue all available methods available under law to collect unpaid balances and any applicable late payment fees.

If Beazy receives a cardholder and/or bank account holder dispute or chargeback for any charges that are owed by the User from their use of the Platform, then the User agrees to immediately remit payment to Beazy for the disputed charge amount. Beazy will respond to any disputes with any information that indicates that the charge was authorized by the User or a third-party cardholder and/or bank account holder.

Any User which also is a Provider agrees that if Beazy is unable to collect any Transaction Costs and funds related to a Listing rental or purchase, including disputed charges, from the Renter or Buyer, the Provider will refund any provider profits or funds that were were transferred to them, or the bank account added on the User’s Beazy Account, directly to Beazy immediately. The Provider also agrees and authorizes Beazy to withdraw funds from the bank account added on their Beazy Account, if necessary to reimburse Beazy for any Transaction Costs and funds related to a Listing rental or purchase that Beazy is unable to collect from the Renter or Buyer.


2.6. Listings‍

Providers are responsible for creating their own Listings, and for the accuracy and content of their Listings. Beazy reviews the new Listings before making them available on the Platform, and reserves the right to reject them or delete them if their content is judged irrelevant or inappropriate.

Beazy reserves the right to change the price of a Provider’s Listing to keep reasonable rental prices relative to other listing prices, with the intention to increase the likelihood of rentals.


2.7. Renter Liability

Any modifications to the Rental Period that are not accepted by the Provider are not authorized and may result in Beazy or the Provider pursuing legal action against the Renter.

If the Renter damages, loses, steals, converts, transfers custody and control to a third-party of, and/or fails to return the Provider’s Listing, within the Rental Period, the Renter agrees that they are liable for and agree to immediately pay for the repair or replacement of the Provider’s Listing, up to the specified limit purchased and/or the Replacement Value of the Listing and/or the deductible amount not covered by the Beazy Insurance Policy (www.beazy.co/insurance) if applicable. Renters are not liable for pre-existing damage or issues with a Provider’s Listing, if there is proof of pre-existing damage or issues or if the pre-existing damage or issues are not caused by the Renter’s rental and use of the Listing.

Beazy is not liable for a User’s deceptive or fraudulent acts, voluntary parting of Listings, the theft of Listings, and/or any other loss caused by User’s deceptive or fraudulent acts and a User’s use of Beazy.co, but Beazy will completely cooperate with the investigation and produce information about the incident and parties involved.


Beazy disclaims any and all liability related to any and all profiles, transactions, purchases, user-to-user communications, and listings. Any rentals or purchases will be made at the user’s own risk. While Beazy will expect a User or a related third-party to make reasonable efforts to return any property they may receive that does not belong to them, Beazy will not be liable for any losses to such property, the liability for the use of the Platform as merely and intermediary is excluded and for any damage the limit of liability is EUR 30,000.
