• (b) perform any background checks of Hosts or Guests; or
• (c) conduct any inspections of Spaces.
SpaceforArts does not endorse any Guest(s), any Host(s) or any Space(s). Rather, SpaceforArts’ sole responsibility is to make available a neutral communication and platform, subject to the terms of this Agreement, through which Hosts can notify details of Spaces and Guests can book and rent Spaces from Hosts.

You may not use the Services to make any Space available for lease, sale, residential use or lodging purposes, or for criminal or illegal activities.

Hosts may edit the details of or remove their Space(s) in the Applications at any time prior to a Host confirming the Booking of Space. If SpaceforArts chooses to remove details of a Space, it has the right but not the obligation to remove such details at its sole discretion, at any time and without needing to give notice.

o CANCELLATIONS BY HOSTS
As a Host you may reject a Booking request from a Guest whereby no payment happens. If a Host fails to respond to a Booking request from a Guest within 3 calendar days, the transaction will be cancelled whereby no payment happens.
The cancellation of a confirmed Booking by a Host requires intensive logistical support and can impact the high standard of service by which SpaceforArts’ marketplace operates. As such, in the event of any cancellation of a confirmed Booking by a Host, SpaceforArts reserves the right to impose penalties on the Host’s account including publishing an automated review indicating a cancelled Booking, and suspending or terminating the Host’s account.
A cancellation of a confirmed Booking by a Host must be made with at least 7 calendar days’ notice. Failure to comply with the preceding sentence will result in SpaceforArts charging the Host the 10% applicable Transaction Fee and the Host must refund the Guest the full transaction amount.
o GENERAL: SpaceforArts reserves the right to make adjustments to its cancellation and refund policy from time to time in accordance with the notice provisions for changes set out in this Agreement.
In the event a Guest occupies a Space, or causes a Space to be occupied by anyone or anything, in excess of the time specified in the applicable Booking, the Guest will be subject to additional charges as set out in the relevant Space Details (“Overtime Charges”). If a Guest has stayed beyond the time of his or her or its Booking, the Host must alert the SpaceforArts team via email at email@example.com
within three (3) business days of the end of the Booking and relate the circumstances of the Booking including the name of the Guest, any relevant and then-applicable Space Details, the date and time of the agreed-upon booking as well as the time by which the Guest overstayed the Booking. Failure by a Host to comply with the preceding sentence will result in the claim for Overtime Charges being forfeited. The Guest will be charged in accordance to the overtime charges stated in the Space Details and as documented by the Host, and SpaceforArts will charge the Guest for the overtime charges to be paid to the Host within 7 business days of the end of the Booking time.
All claims for Overtime Charges shall be treated by us as a dispute and we will review each such claim independently before collecting any Overtime Charge from a Guest.

(a) leaving each Space and any property provided in the condition it was provided to you;
(b) your own acts and omissions, and the acts and omissions of your guests and invitees, with respect to each Space you Book;

in the event of any alleged damages by a Guest and provide evidence (including, without limitation, a walkthrough report and photographs or video or other physical or documentary evidence) of such damages and reasonable estimates to repair or replace such damages. SpaceforArts will contact the Guest regarding the claimed damages and, as a Guest, you must respond to any such claim within 3 business days. In the event a claim is made, SpaceforArts will work to resolve the dispute. The Guest will be responsible for reimbursing to the Host payment for any and all damages. SpaceforArts reserves the right, without the obligation, to suspend or terminate any User’s ability to use the Services in the event the User fails to communicate in a timely manner regarding any damage to any Space or provides any false or misleading information with respect to such damage. SpaceforArts has no obligation to any Host to reimburse for any property damage, injury, or other liability resulting from or caused by the Guest or the Guest’s guests or invitees, or for any other reason.
• Inappropriate Conduct
If you, as a Host, permit a Guest to use a Space or, as a Guest, make use of a Host’s Space and thereby become aware that such other User has engaged in inappropriate or illegal behavior (such as committing an act of violence or theft), you must immediately report the User to the appropriate law enforcement authorities. In addition, you must notify SpaceforArts immediately at email@example.com
. Although SpaceforArts reserves the right to terminate the accounts of any such User, your notice will not obligate us to take any action beyond that required by law or otherwise cause us to incur any liability to you, any other User, or any third party.
If a dispute arises between a Host and a Guest following the confirmation of a Space reservation, which dispute the claiming party would like SpaceforArts to investigate, the claiming party must notify SpaceforArts at firstname.lastname@example.org within 3 business days of the alleged disputed incident and detail the circumstances of such disputed incident and provide all available documentation including, without limitation, a walkthrough report and photographs or video or other physical or documentary evidence concerning the dispute. Any disputes submitted after the 3-day period will be deemed outside SpaceforArts statute of limitations and no action will be taken.

If warranted, SpaceforArts will mediate the dispute and make best reasonable efforts to resolve the matter quickly and amicably.
