You agree and acknowledge that the Website is not liable for the information published in search results or by any Third-Party website that carries the Website's postings.

We will not share your phone number with the Host unless there is a confirmed booking.
6. When your request to book an Accommodation is accepted by the Host or when you accept a Guest’s request to book your Accommodation, we will disclose some of your Personal Information to the Host or Guest. However, your billing information will never be shared with another user.
7. When a Guest stays at your Accommodation or when you stay at a Host’s Accommodation, we will ask you to review the Guest or the Accommodation. If you choose to provide a review, your review may be public on the Website.
