We are an internet advertising company. Our goal is to create a marketplace that efficiently serves the needs of both Sellers and Buyers. We are NOT involved in any transaction between a Seller and a Buyer, even though we may from time to time provide tools that enable the transaction to occur. As a result, we do not warrant or guarantee any part of an actual or potential transaction between a Seller and a Buyer, including the quality, safety or legality of the timeshare advertised, the truth or accuracy of the advertisement, the ability of a Seller to sell or rent a timeshare or the ability of a Buyer to buy or rent a timeshare.
We are NOT a licensed real estate broker. Any inquiries about a timeshare are submitted via email and the Seller and the Buyer are responsible for negotiating any sale or rental of a timeshare. We do not provide Sellers or Buyers with any brokerage services, including, but not limited to: appraising or providing professional guidance regarding the value of a timeshare; showing timeshares (other than posting advertisements on our Website); screening, qualifying or identifying Buyers or Sellers; forwarding any offers or counteroffers (other than those you automatically receive by email); advising as to offers received; participating in the negotiation of any sale or rental of a timeshare; providing Sellers or Buyers with any form of agreement, or completing an agreement, necessary to effectuate the sale or rental of a timeshare; or performing any actions related to a transfer of a timeshare, including the review of title, the request of estoppel letters, the escrowing of funds, and the acknowledgement of transfer by the timeshare resort’s owners association.
We are NOT affiliated with any resort or resort developer. We are an independent company that advertises timeshares located throughout the world, irrespective of who developed or manages the timeshare resort.

The advertising services we offer help Buyers find Sellers and vice-versa. However, concluding any transaction will often require additional steps, such as negotiating prices, completing agreements and filing documents. While we don’t provide these services, the Website contains links to other companies that do (“Service Providers”). If you request our assistance with respect to documentation or brokerage services, we will provide your information to Service Providers so that they can assist you with your request.

You are not obligated to use the services of any Service Provider that links to the Website or that we may otherwise recommend or suggest.
The fact that we provided a link to a third-party website, or that we recommend a particular product, service or Service Provider, does not constitute an endorsement of that website, product, service or Service Provider. Your use of the same is at your own risk. We are not responsible for examining or evaluating, and we do not warrant the offerings of, any Service Provider or the content of their websites. We do not assume any responsibility or liability for the actions, products, or services of any Service Provider.

THE WEBSITE AND ALL CONTENT INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THIS WEBSITE ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE OPERATOR AND ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, AFFILIATES, VENDORS, MERCHANTS, THIRD-PARTY CONTENT PROVIDERS OR LICENSORS MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THIS WEBSITE OR THE CONTENT INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THIS WEBSITE; NOR DO THEY MAKE ANY WARRANTY AS TO THE RESULTS THAT MAY BE OBTAINED FROM USE OF THIS WEBSITE OR THE ACCURACY OR RELIABILITY OF ANY CONTENT PROVIDED THROUGH THE WEBSITE. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THIS WEBSITE IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. THE OPERATOR DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT THE WEBSITE WILL BE ERROR FREE, AVAILABLE AT ALL TIMES, OR WITHOUT INTERRUPTION. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE OPERATOR DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. THE OPERATOR DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE WEBSITE; THE CONTENT INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THIS WEBSITE; THEIR SERVERS; OR ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS ARE: (A) FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS; OR (B) IMMUNE TO OR FREE FROM THE RISK OF ANY BREACH OF SECURITY. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE OPERATOR WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE USE OF THIS WEBSITE OR FROM ANY CONTENT INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THIS WEBSITE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. IN NO CIRCUMSTANCE WILL THE OPERATOR’S LIABILITY, OR THE LIABILITY OF OUR AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, VENDORS, MERCHANTS, THIRD-PARTY CONTENT PROVIDERS OR LICENSORS, FOR ANY AND ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO THE USE OF THE SITE, SERVICES, AND PRODUCTS EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF FEES THAT YOU PAID THE OPERATOR DURING THE ONE-YEAR PERIOD PRIOR TO BRINGING A CLAIM FOR THE SPECIFIC SERVICE OR PRODUCT INVOLVED. IF ANY JURISDICTION PROHIBITS THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMERS, LIMITATIONS, AND EXCLUSIONS, IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS, THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMERS, LIMITATIONS, AND EXCLUSIONS SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY THE JURISDICTION.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the Operator, its affiliates, directors, officers, employees, and agents from and against all claims, damages, and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, arising out of or related to any products or services you purchase in connection with the Website, your use of the Website, or your violation of any third-party right. You are solely responsible for interactions with any other Users of the Website. To the extent permitted by applicable law, you hereby release the Operator from any and all claims or liability related to any product or service available through the Website or any conduct, action, or inaction by the Operator. In connection with the foregoing release, you hereby waive any rights under California Civil Code Section 1542 (and any similar provision in any other jurisdiction) which states: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
This Agreement and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and the Operator shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida, without regard to its conflicts of law principles. Except as otherwise provided herein, You irrevocably and unconditionally consent to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in the County of Hillsborough, Florida (the “Florida Courts”) for any litigation or dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement or your performance or nonperformance hereunder (including but not limited to collection matters). Most concerns can be resolved quickly and effectively by calling the Operator’s customer service department at (800) 882-0296. In the unlikely event that customer service is unable to resolve your concern, we each agree to resolve any disputes through binding arbitration instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. Any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and Operator are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.
References to "Operator," "you," and "us" include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services under this or prior Agreements between us. This Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement.
Operator and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us that can’t otherwise be resolved through customer service. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to:
claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; claims that arose before this or any prior Agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);
claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and
claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.
The arbitration shall be held in Hillsborough County, Florida before one arbitrator under the consumer arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in force at that time. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the AAA rules. Should no AAA rule regarding the selection of an arbitrator be in effect, you shall select an arbitrator from a panel of arbitrators acceptable to and chosen by the Operator from AAA’s pool of arbitrators. Each party shall be responsible for paying its own attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses, regardless of which party prevails, but a party may recover any or all of its attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses from another party if the arbitrator, applying applicable law, so determines.
To begin the arbitration process, a party must make a written demand and serve such demand on the other party within one (1) year of when the claim or controversy first accrued. To the fullest extent permitted by law, the arbitrator is not permitted to award indirect, special, incidental, consequential or punitive damages against any party. If the AAA rules permit a party to proceed with their dispute in small claims court, and a party chooses that option, the parties agree not to seek any remedy or relief in small claims court that would be unavailable to them through binding arbitration. Any judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in the Florida Courts. The agreement to arbitrate shall not be construed as an agreement to the joinder or consolidation of arbitration under this Agreement with arbitration of disputes or claims of any non-party, regardless of the nature of the issues or disputes involved.
YOU AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND THE OPERATOR WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION. BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, EACH PARTY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ITS RIGHT TO PRESENT A DISPUTE IN COURT, RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, AND ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO JOIN CLAIMS OR DISPUTES WITH THOSE OF OTHERS IN THE FORM OF A CLASS ACTION OR SIMILAR PROCEDURAL DEVICE. IF THE PRECEDING SENTENCE IS FOUND TO BE UNENFORCEABLE IN WHOLE OR IN PART, THEN THE ENTIRETY OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION SHALL BE NULL AND VOID.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to your access, use, and receipt of services from the Website and supersedes all prior communications, agreements, negotiations and discussions between you and us relating to the same, whether written or oral. We exclude any representations and warranties previously given or made in relation to the same.
As described above, we reserve the right at any time, at our sole discretion, to change or otherwise modify the Agreement (including the Privacy Notice) with or without prior notice, but any such changes to the Agreement will not apply to disputes filed before the effective date of the amendment. You are responsible for regularly reviewing these terms. By using our Services, you agree that the posting of new or revised Terms of Services or Privacy Notice on the Website will constitute adequate and constructive notice to you of any and all revisions and changes. Continued use of the Services after any such changes or after explicitly accepting the new terms upon logging into the Website shall constitute your consent to such changes. If you do not agree to any modification of this Agreement, you must immediately stop using this Website. This provision will survive any termination of this Agreement.
Except as otherwise indicated, if one or more of the provisions herein are held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, such holding shall not affect any other provision hereof, and this Agreement shall be construed as if such provision had never been contained herein. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of each of us and our respective heirs, administrators, legal representatives, successors and assigns. It is our mutual and express intent that the rights and obligations set forth herein apply to us only, with no third-party beneficiary rights intended. Waiver of any term of this Agreement shall not affect any other term or subsequent performance of the waived term
The provisions of this Agreement relating to intellectual property licenses, the disclaimer of warranties, limitations on liability, indemnification obligations, releases, and the resolution of disputes will survive any termination of this Agreement by either party.
