We are registered in England and Wales under company number 06884677 and have our registered office at 58 Banastre Drive, Newton le Willows, Merseyside, WA12 8BE, United Kingdom. We are the data controller for the purpose of the Data Protection Act 1998.

We are an advertising service for Advertisers and an accommodation search facility for Holidaymakers. We do not own, inspect or provide content for any of the properties advertised on our site. We have absolutely no involvement in the booking process or transaction, although we may provide tools to enable the transaction between Advertiser and Holidaymaker.

Your waiver and indemnity
Any contract for the rental of any property listed on our site is directly between an Advertiser and a Holidaymaker and we are not a party to that contract.

Our limitation of liability and responsibility
We act merely as an advertising service through which Advertisers can advertise properties to Holidaymakers. We do not own, nor have we inspected, nor do we have any control whatsoever over any property listed on our site and we make no representations or warranties regarding any of the properties.

While we require Advertisers to advertise properties truthfully, fairly and accurately, and we take reasonable steps to remove advertisements from our site following any complaint from a Holidaymaker or another Advertiser, we have no control over the accuracy of any advertisement or the capacity of any Advertiser to make a booking with a Holidaymaker. In an attempt to ensure properties are truthfully, fairly and accurately represented, we have provided a property review facility for the Holidaymaker to write a review that will be available for future Holidaymakers.

As such, we disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance by any user of our site, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents, placed on any advertisement, commentary and other materials posted on our site.

Your safety
Consideration should always be given to the nature of advertisements and contracts transacted on the Internet, and the risks involved. Although we encourage Advertisers and Holidaymakers to make direct contact with each other, you may never meet or directly speak to an Advertiser or a Holidaymaker, and you must therefore proceed with care and judgement when using our site.

Our liability shall not in any event include business losses such as lost data, lost profits or business interruption.

This does not affect our liability for fraudulent misrepresentation or if something we do negligently causes death or personal injury, nor any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.

Interruptions in our service
Whilst we take every care to maintain the continuity of our site, the Internet is not always a stable medium, and errors, omissions, interruptions of service and delays may occur at any time. As a result, we do not accept any ongoing obligation or responsibility to operate our site or any particular part of it.

We have no control over the contents of those sites or resources, and accept no responsibility for them or for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of them.

You agree to comply with all applicable laws, statutes and regulations concerning your use of our site.

Advertiser Agreement
This document informs you of the additional terms and conditions on which you may make use of www.holidaypropertyinvestments.com ("our web site") as a property owner or agent (an "Advertiser") placing advertisements on our site. If there is an inconsistency between any of the provisions of these additional terms and conditions ("User Agreement") and the Terms of Use, the provisions of the User Agreement shall prevail.

Please read the General Terms of Use and User agreement thoroughly before using our site. By advertising on our site, you indicate that you accept the General Terms of Use and User Agreement.

User Agreement:

Rules for advertising
By advertising on our site and by providing information to us, you agree to the following:

Eligibility to advertise
To provide upon request from us proof of personal identification, proof of ownership of the property advertised on our site and proof of authority to list the property.

Prior to activation of an advertisement all content that you submit is subject to our approval. As part of that process and in an ongoing capacity we reserve the right to review and amend content and photographs you supply.

Multiple properties
That a property advertisement on our site pertains to one holiday home, not multiple homes, nor an example of properties in a certain region. Only one self-contained holiday home should be represented in an advertisement unless prior permission has been given by us. We reserve the right to amend any property adverts not adhering to this policy.

Co-located holiday homes and adverts
Co-located homes are classed as a set of properties available for holiday rental that are on the same site or complex, advertised by the same Holiday Lettings Advertiser and can be rented individually or in combination. You can advertise between two and five co-located homes using a set of Co-located Adverts. A further advert can be added to your set to showcase the option of renting the homes in combination, this is known as a Group Advert. Within the set each home must have its own advertisement page.

Exchanging properties
A property advertisement on our site relates to a specific property, and this property must not be substituted for another by way of changes to the text and photographs unless prior permission has been given to the Advertiser. If an Advertiser is found to have changed the property being described, we reserve the right to suspend the advert in question.

Availability calendar accuracy
It is a requirement of your advertising contract with us that your availability calendar accurately reflects the availability for the advertised property at the time the calendar is updated. Misrepresentation of availability of the advertised property is misleading to site users. We reserve the right to withdraw the calendar facility or terminate the advertisements concerned, without refund, where we believe calendars to be misleading. As the Advertiser it is your responsibility to maintain and up date your calendar regularly, doing so will increase you search result rating for potential Holidaymakers.

Availability calendar updating
In line with the above paragraph, we recommend that calendars are updated on a weekly basis. However, our minimum requirement is that calendars are updated at least once a month. This includes confirming if there have been no changes in that period. Failure to provide the minimum frequency of updates will affect advert performance and the user search experience. We reserve the right to withdraw the calendar facility from adverts where availability is considerably out of date. Adverts that repeatedly fail to meet this minimum requirement could be terminated without refund.

Termination of an advertisement
If we receive substantiated complaints from any number of site users about a specific advertisement misrepresenting the property, or its surroundings, or the inappropriate behavior of an Advertiser, then we reserve the right to remove the advertisement without notice, and retain payment;

If an Advertiser attempts to enter unsuitable material into the online database, or persistently misuses the online systems, we reserve the right to remove the associated advertisement from our site. Full payment will be retained;

We reserve the right to refuse or remove any advertisement from our site that we consider unsuitable, incomplete or misleading, and will not be liable for any expense in so doing;

We reserve the right to refuse any advertisement from our site where the content fails to meet our quality standards.

If an Advertiser wishes to have their advertisement removed from our site before the end of their subscription, this will be done as soon as we receive formal notice from the Advertiser by email or using the 'Contact Us' page, quoting their Logo ID and Email address. No refunds will be given;

If an Advertiser is in breach of these terms we may remove the advertisement from our site without notice and without refund.

Contactability
In the interest of maintaining a high level of service to Holidaymakers using our site, we require all Advertisers to be available to respond to enquiries by telephone or email. Should Advertisers be unavailable for a period of more than 1 week, we ask them to leave an answerphone message to that effect or to set up an out of office response on their email account. If neither of these options is viable, we ask that Advertisers contact us so we can temporarily suspend their advert. We reserve the right to suspend adverts of Advertisers who are unreachable for more than one week. In this instance we will send messages by telephone and email asking for the Advertiser to request re-activation upon their return.

Property reviews
All property reviews must be genuine comments from your guests. We reserve the right to request the email address of the guests whose comments are included for the purposes of verification. Should we decide to include guest reviews on the website, the same rules will apply.

Unauthorised payment options
No Advertiser should request payment from a Holidaymaker via an instant cash wire transfer system such as Western Union or MoneyGram transfer. Neither may you request payment by cash sent by post. Such actions may result in immediate termination of your advertising. Payment should be accepted via credit card, cheque, bank transfer or similar appropriate method.

External links
We reserve the right to remove from advertisements both email addresses and links to external websites which either do not conform to the guidelines provided, or which we feel are not appropriate, or act against the interests of us or our Advertisers. The ultimate responsibility and authority for determining the aforementioned rests solely with us. Should an Advertiser add a link or email address without consent, re-add a link or email address after its removal or remove reciprocated links from their website, we reserve the right to cancel their advertising without refund.


Payment details

No Advertisements will be activated without payment.

If payment is being made by credit or debit card this can be processed online by our Transaction service, a service charge will apply for all transactions.

If you are sending a cheque please address it to: Holiday Property Investments Ltd., 58 Banastre Drive, Newton le Willows, WA12 8BE , United Kingdom.

For payments made to us by bank transfer and/or in a foreign currency, an admin fee of £10 will be applied in order to cover the bank charges incurred.

Advertisements can be paid for on an annual or quarterly basis (quarterly payment is known as "Subscription"). If you opt to pay by Subscription, the fee will be debited on a quarterly basis from the card you provide. No 'cooling off period' applies beyond the first year or first quarter of advertising.


VAT
Our services fall within Schedule 5 of the VAT Act 1994 and therefore the Advertiser is required to account for any VAT (or equivalent) due in their own member state/country.

We are legally required to charge VAT on our fees at 15% to Advertisers who are either resident in the UK or who are private individuals resident in the EU.

If you are an Advertiser resident outside the EU, VAT will not be charged as our services are outside the scope of UK VAT when provided to you.

If you are an EU resident Advertiser (except in the UK) and if you confirm that you are "in business", we will not charge UK VAT on our fees.

In business", for this purpose, means that you rent property on a regular basis to generate income.

EU residents (except UK)
By confirming you are "in business" you may be required to account for VAT on our fees in your local jurisdiction. Residency is interpreted for VAT purposes as the country where the individual has set up home and is in employment.

Please note that all Advertisers, whether they are in business or not, are responsible for charging and accounting to the relevant authorities for taxes (including, where relevant, VAT) on the rental payments they receive


Refund policy
We provide an advertising service rather than a physical product. We offer a ''''cooling off period'''' of seven working days wherein an Advertiser may cancel the requested advertising by email to support@holidaypropertyinvestments.com or by use of the ''Contact Us'' form on our site (stating the Logon ID and Email address). The cooling off period applies to the initial advertising period only; it cannot be applied beyond the first year or first quarter of advertising.

Changes to pricing and conditions
We reserve the right to change the rates and conditions without notice. Any new rates will be applicable immediately for all new advertisements and renewals for both new and existing Advertisers.
