Unless expressly authorized by a specific Welcome2France feature or functionality, you are not permitted to share your Welcome2France Account with any person or establishment, and you are not permitted to give others access to your Welcome2France Account. Welcome2France may, using our sole discretion, enable features and functionalities that allow other Members to take certain actions pertaining to your Welcome2France Account, on your behalf and with your express authorization, such as enabling your executive assistant, colleague, employer, or travel agent to book an Accommodation on your behalf, or, for Hosts, adding a family member to your Welcome2France account as an additional Host. You expressly agree that you will take full and sole responsibility for any activity or action performed in and through your Welcome2France Account, whether or not you have authorized such activity or action. You will immediately notify Welcome2France of any unauthorized access or use of your Welcome2France Account.
As a Member, you are permitted to create Listings. To create a Listing, you must answer a range of questions about the Accommodation you plan to list, and these questions include the location, size, capacity, features, availability, pricing, rules, and related financial terms. To be featured in Listings, each Accommodation must have a valid physical address. All Listings will be publicly viewable on the Site, Application, and Services. You understand and agree that the ranking or placement of the Listings in the search results depend on a variety of factors, such as Host preferences, Guest preferences, Guest ratings, and ease of Booking.
Other Members will be able to book your Accommodation through the Site, Applicaiton, and Services, based on the information that you have provided in your Listing, your Guest requirements, and the prospective Guests’ preferences and search parameters. You understand and agree that once a Guest requests a Booking of your Accommodation, you are not allowed to request the Guest to pay a higher price than what is stated in the Booking request.
You completely acknowledge and fully agree that you are solely responsible for any and all of the Listings and Member Content that you post. As such, you represent and warrant that any Listing you post, the Booking of an Accommodation in a Listing you post, or a Guest’s stay at an Accommodation in a Listing you post: (i) will not breach any agreements you have entered into and signed with any third parties, such as the homeowners’ or condominium association in which the Accommodation belongs; and (ii) will (a) comply with zoning laws, intellectual property laws, and/or other applicable laws, Tax requirements, business permits and related requirements, and rules and regulations governing any Accommodation in a Listing you post, and (b) not be in conflict with the rights of any third party. Please note that Welcome2France assumes no responsibility for a Host’s compliance with any applicable laws, related rules and regulations, and/or agreements with and obligations to third parties. Welcome2France reserves the right to remove or disable access, at any time and without prior notice, any Listing for any reason, including Listings that Welcome2France considers, at its sole discretion, to be objectionable for whatever reason or to be harmful to the Site, Application, and Services. Welcome2France also reserves the right to remove or disable access, at any time and without prior notice, any Listing for any reason, including Listings that Welcome2France considers, at its sole discretion, to be in violation of the Terms or of Welcome2France’s standing Policies and Community Guidelines or Standards, and Trademark and Branding Guidelines.
If you are a Host, you completely understand and fully agree that Welcome2France does not act as an insurer or contracting agent for you or anyone. If a Guest requests a Booking of your Accommodation and actually stays at your Accommodation, any agreement you enter into with such Guest is solely between you and the Guest, with Welcome2France not being a party to it.
When you create a Listing, you may opt to list down certain requirements that must be met by the Members, in order for them to be eligible to request a Booking of your Accommodation, and these requirements may include a Welcome2France Account profile page photo or a verified telephone number. More information on how to set these requirements is available in the “Hosting” section of the Site, Application, and Services.
Welcome2France makes certain tools available to Hosts, and if you are a Host, these tools will help you make informed decisions on which Member Booking you will approve and confirm. You fully acknowledge and agree that as a Host, you are solely responsible for your own acts and omissions pertaining to the Accommodations included in your Listings. You also fully acknowledge and agree that as a Host, you are solely responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals whom you have allowed to reside at, or be present in, the Accommodations included in your Listings, unless the acts and omissions are made by the Guest or the individuals invited by the Guest to the Accommodation.
Welcome2France recommends that Hosts obtain appropriate insurance coverage for their Accommodations. Please carefully and thoroughly review any insurance policy that you consider taking out for your Accommodation, and make sure that you fully understand each exclusion and applicable deductible, including, but not limited to, actions or inactions of Guests and their invited visitors during their stay at your Accommodation. Please also carefully and thoroughly review any insurance policy for your Accommodation, to see whether or not this interacts with the Welcome2France Host Protection Insurance Program to the extent that is provided in your jurisdiction.
Welcome2France may offer Hosts the option to have photographers take photographs of the Accommodations in their Listings. If you as a Host choose to enlist the services of a photographer, Welcome2France shall own all copyrights of the photographs taken and thus have a right to put a watermark or tag, which bears the label “Welcome2France Verified Photo” or similar words (“Verified Images”); however, Welcome2France will allow you to use these, with the appropriate watermark or tag, for your Listings. You agree that you, and you alone, are responsible for ensuring that each one of your Listings is accurately and honestly represented in the Verified Images. You, and you alone, are responsible for the use of the Verified Images to showcase your Listings, and you warrant that you will cease to use any or all of these Verified Images, or any related images, as soon as these cease to represent your Listings accurately or once you cease to be the Host of the Accommodations in the Listings. All materials and content created by these photographers with respect to the Verified Images shall constitute Welcome2France Content, even if you do not include these in your Listing, and you agree that you will not use these outside of your Listing without prior authorization and express written permission from Welcome2France. If your Welcome2France Account is suspended, cancelled, terminated for whatever reason, you shall not use the Verified Images in any way. You expressly agree that Welcome2France retains its right to use the Verified Images for marketing, advertising, commercial, and other business purposes in any platform or medium, whether or not in relation to your Listing, and without further notice or compensation to you.
No Endorsements or Preferential Treatment
Welcome2France does not endorse any Member, Accommodation, or Listing. You fully understand that Verified Images are intended only to provide a photographic representation of a part of the Accommodation at the time the photographs were taken. Verified Images are, therefore, not a form of Welcome2France endorsement of any Member, Accommodation, or Listing.
Members are required by these Terms to provide complete, current, and accurate information. For transparency, fraud-prevention, fraud-detection, and similar purposes, Welcome2France may ask you to furnish certain forms of government identification with your date of birth and/or other personal information, and it may also ask you to undergo certain checks and processes that will help verify your identity or background as a Member. Welcome2France may also countercheck Member information with third-party databases or other sources. Welcome2France does not, however, make any representations about, confirm, or endorse any Member or the Member’s claimed identity or background.
By registering for a Welcome2France Account, you agree that Welcome2France may, but is in no way obliged or compelled to, request a consumer report on you from a consumer reporting agency.
Any references in the Site, Application, or Services to any Member being “verified” or “connected” (or similar wording) only indicate that the Member has performed and completed a relevant identification and/or verification process with respect to Welcome2France Account activities, and these actions do not indicate or represent anything else. Any such description does not constitute a Welcome2France endorsement, certification, approval, or guarantee on a Member or a Member’s identity, and it does not define the Member as safe or trustworthy. Any such description is only intended to help you evaluate a Member when you make your decision on which persons to interact with on the Site, Application, and Services. Welcome2France recommends that you always exercise care, caution, and due diligence when deciding whether to book an Accommodation, stay with a Host, pre-approve or accept a Booking Request, interact with a Guest, or transact with other Members. Except as provided in the Welcome2France Host Guarantee Terms and Conditions (“Welcome2France Host Guarantee”), which is an agreement between Welcome2France and hosts, Welcome2France is not responsible for any inconvenience, damage, or harm resulting from your communication, interaction, or transaction with other Members.
By using the Site, Application, or Services, you fully agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for any acts or omissions of other Members or third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular Members or third parties who have caused you inconvenience, damage, or harm. You also fully agree not to attempt to impose any liability on, or seek legal remedy from, Welcome2France on such acts or omissions. Accordingly, Welcome2France encourages you to communicate directly with other Members regarding the Bookings or Listings that concern you. This limitation shall not apply to a claim by a Host against Welcome2France with regard to the remittance of payments received from a Guest by Welcome2France on behalf of a Host that shall be subject to the limitations described in the “Limitation of Liability” section below.

“Guest Fees” refers to the monetary amounts that Welcome2France charges a Guest for the use of the Site, Application, and Services with respect to their Booking of Accommodations. The Guest Fees are a percentage of the monetary amounts calculated by Hosts as Accommodation Fees, and these will be displayed when Guests go to the page where they are asked if they wish to send Booking Requests to the respective Hosts.

Booking and Financial Terms for Hosts
Whenever a Booking is requested through the Site, Application, or Services, the Host of the Accommodation is required to pre-approve and confirm, or otherwise reject, the Booking Request within the Booking Request Period; otherwise, the Booking Request will automatically expire. Whenever a Booking Request is made through the Site, Application, or Services, Welcome2France will share with you (i) the first and last name of the Guest making the Booking Request, (ii) a link to the Guest’s Welcome2France Account profile page, (iii) the names of any shared SNS connections, if the Guest and the Host have each connected their Welcome2France Account to SNS and have allowed the sharing of social connections, an (iv) an indication that the Guest has provided Welcome2France other information, such as a government ID, a verified e-mail address, or an SNS connection. Should a Host be unable to decide whether to confirm or to reject a Booking Request within the Booking Request Period, any monetary amounts collected by Welcome2France will be refunded to the paying Guest. When a Host confirms a Booking, Welcome2France will send a Communication that confirms such Booking, depending on the selections and settings made by the Host on the Site, Application, and Services.
Welcome2France will collect the Total Fees from Guests during the Booking Request or as soon as the Host confirms the Booking. Welcome2France will subsequently pay the Host the Accommodation Fees (less any applicable fees and taxes), as further described in the Payments Terms.
In accordance with the cancellation policy selected and set by the Host, and reflected in the relevant Listing, each and every Host agrees that Welcome2France may (i) allow the Guest to cancel the Booking, and (ii) refund the Guest, through Welcome2France Payments, a portion of the Accommodation Fees, as specified in the applicable cancellation policy.
Booking and Financial Terms for Guests
The Host, not Welcome2France, is solely responsible for honoring confirmed Bookings and making available the Accommodation that a Guest has reserved through the Site, Application, or Services. If a Guest chooses to transact with a Host for the Booking of an Accommodation, you completely understand and fully agree that you will be required to sign onto an agreement with the Host, and that you will accept all terms, conditions, rules, regulations, and restrictions imposed by the Host in relation to the Accommodation.
You understand, acknowledge, and agree that you, and not Welcome2France, are solely responsible for the performance of obligations of any agreements entered into with the Host, with respect to the booked Accommodation. You also understand, acknowledge, and agree that Welcome2France is not in any way a party to such an agreement, and that, with the exception of Welcome2France Payments’ obligations in accordance with the Payment Terms, Welcome2France (and all of its subsidiaries) disclaims any and all liability that may arise from such agreement.
The Total Fees payable by the Guest will be displayed in the Guest’s relevant Welcome2France Account page before the Guest sends a Booking Request to the Host. As mentioned above, the Host is required to pre-approve and confirm, or otherwise reject, the Booking Request within the Booking Request Period; otherwise, the Booking Request will automatically expire. Upon receiving the Guest’s Booking Request, Welcome2France may provide a pre-authorization and/or charge a nominal amount to the Guest’s Payment Method, as laid out in the Payments Terms. If a requested Booking of Accommodation is not confirmed by the Host, and thereby cancelled, any amounts collected by Welcome2France Payments will be refunded to the Guest, depending on the selections and settings made by the Guest on the Site, Application, and Services. In this case, and if applicable, any pre-authorization of the Guest’s Payment Method will be released.
