THE SITE AND SERVICES COMPRISE AN ONLINE PLATFORM THROUGH WHICH GUESTS (DEFINED BELOW) MAY LEARN ABOUT AND BOOK ROOMS AT ACCOMMODATIONS.
“Accommodation” means an accommodation, such as a hotel, serviced apartment, and short-term rental, that is listed by an accommodation for rental via the Site and Services. “Anyplace Content” means all Content that Anyplace makes available through the Site or Services, including any Content licensed from a third party, but excluding Member Content. “Collective Content” means Member Content and Anyplace Content. “Content” means text, graphics, images, music, software, audio, video, information or other materials. “Guest” means a Member who stays for, entirely or partially, the period(s) he/she applied for at an Accommodation. “Listing” means an Accommodation that is listed for rental via the Site and Services. “Member” means a person who completes Anyplace’s account registration process. “Member Content” means all Content that a Member posts, uploads, publishes, submits or transmits to be made available through the Site or Services. Certain areas of the Site (and your access to or use of certain aspects of the Services or Collective Content) may have different terms and conditions posted or may require you to agree with and accept additional terms and conditions. If there is a conflict between these Terms and terms and conditions posted for a specific area of the Site, Services, or Collective Content, the latter terms and conditions will take precedence with respect to your use of or access to that area of the Site, Services, or Collective Content. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, BY ACCESSING OR USING THE SITE, OR SERVICES OR BY DOWNLOADING OR POSTING ANY CONTENT FROM OR ON THE SITE OR THROUGH THE SERVICES, YOU ARE INDICATING THAT YOU HAVE READ, AND THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS, WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE REGISTERED WITH THE SITE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, THEN YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO ACCESS OR USE THE SITE, SERVICES, OR COLLECTIVE CONTENT. If you accept or agree to these Terms on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to these Terms and, in such event, “you” and “your” will refer and apply to that company or other legal entity.
Anyplace reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify the Site, or Services or to modify these Terms, at any time and without prior notice. If we modify these Terms, we will post the modification on the Site or provide you with notice of the modification. We will also update the “Last Updated Date” at the top of these Terms. By continuing to access or use the Site, or Services after we have posted a modification on the Site or have provided you with notice of a modification, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If the modified Terms are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Site and Services.
The Site and Services are intended solely for persons who are 18 or older. Any access to or use of the Site, or Services by anyone under 18 is expressly prohibited. By accessing or using the Site, or Services you represent and warrant that you are 18 or older.
How the Site and Services Work
The Site and Services can be used to facilitate the booking of Accommodations for a specific period. Such Accommodations are included in Listings on the Site and Services by Anyplace. You may view Listings as an unregistered visitor to the Site and Services; however, if you wish to book an Accommodation, you must create an Anyplace Account (defined below) during the booking process. As stated above, Anyplace makes available a platform with related technology for Guests for bookings of Accommodations.
In order to book an Accommodation, you must follow the procedure below:
- Visit the Site at Anyplace.com;
- Create your account for our Site and Services (“Anyplace Account”) and you will become a Member.
- Select your Accommodation and apply online;
- Provide us your credit card information and authorization to review your credit card history, as well as certain information to determine credibility or credit worthiness, including but not limited to, credit history, credit score, eviction history, and criminal history, after Anyplace checks the availability for the dates you need the Accommodation
- Sign the lease contract and invoice for rent and deposit that Anyplace will send you electronically for your signature;
- Send back the signed lease and invoice to Anyplace
You may not have more than one (1) active Anyplace Account. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete. Anyplace reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Anyplace Account and your access to the Site and Services if you create more than one (1) Anyplace Account or if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current or incomplete. You are responsible for safeguarding your password. You agree that you will not disclose your password to any third party and that you will take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your Anyplace Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify Anyplace of any unauthorized use of your Anyplace Account.
Bookings and Financial Terms for Members
If you (as a Member) request a booking, you will be notified of the currency in which you will be charged together with the corresponding amount of the Initial Fees and, if applicable, the Subsequent Fees and Extended Fees. The currency in which you will be charged will be determined by Anyplace based on the payment method you select and the location of the Accommodation in the Listing you are booking. You acknowledge that the exchange rate applicable to the currency you need to convert the currency by which you need to pay the Initial Fees, Subsequent Fees and Extended Fees (“Applicable Exchange Rate”) may not be identical to the applicable market rate in effect at the specific time such processing occurs as: (i) although Anyplace updates the Applicable Exchange Rate on a regular basis, it does not update such rate on a real-time basis; and (ii) the Applicable Exchange Rate may include an incremental cost or margin that is not included in the applicable market rate.
Our referral program (“Referral Program”) allows Members to earn promotional coupon credits toward future bookings of Accommodations by referring friends to become new users of Anyplace. The terms and conditions of the Referral Program are set forth in the Anyplace Referral Program Terms and Conditions.
Damage to Accommodations
As a Guest, you are responsible for leaving the Accommodation in the condition it was in when you arrived. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Guest, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who you invite to, or otherwise provide access to, the Accommodation. In the event that Anyplace claims otherwise and provides evidence of damage, including but not limited to, photographs, you agree to pay the cost of replacing the damaged items with equivalent items. After being notified of the claim and given forty-eight (48) hours to respond, Anyplace shall have the right to collect payment from you and pursue any avenues available to Anyplace in this regard, including using Security Deposits, in situations in which you have been determined, in Anyplace’s sole discretion, to have damaged any Accommodation, including, but not limited to, in relation to any payment requests made by Anyplace, and in relation to any payments made by Anyplace. If we are unable to charge the credit card or debit card on file or otherwise collect payment from you, you agree to remit payment for any damage to the Accommodation to Anyplace (if applicable). Guests agree to cooperate with and assist Anyplace in good faith, and to provide Anyplace with such information and take such actions as may be reasonably requested by Anyplace, in connection with any complaints or claims made by Members relating to Accommodations or any personal or other property located at an Accommodation or with respect to any investigation undertaken by Anyplace or a representative of Anyplace regarding use or abuse of the Site, or the Services. If you are a Guest, upon Anyplace’s reasonable request, and to the extent you are reasonably able to do so, you agree to participate in mediation or similar resolution process with Anyplace, which process will be conducted by Anyplace or a third party selected by Anyplace, with respect to losses for which Anyplace is requesting payment. If you are a Guest, you understand and agree that Anyplace reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to make a claim under your homeowner’s, renter’s or other insurance policy related to any damage or loss that you may have caused or been responsible for to an Accommodation or any personal or other property located at an Accommodation. You agree to cooperate with and assist Anyplace in good faith, and to provide Anyplace with such information as may be reasonably requested by Anyplace in order to make a claim under your homeowner’s, renter’s or other insurance policy, including, but not limited to, executing documents and taking such further acts as Anyplace may reasonably request to assist Anyplace in accomplishing the foregoing.

IF YOU CHOOSE TO USE THE SITE AND/OR SERVICES, YOU DO SO AT YOUR SOLE RISK. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ANYPLACE DOES NOT HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO CONDUCT BACKGROUND CHECKS ON ANY MEMBER BUT MAY CONDUCT SUCH BACKGROUND CHECKS IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION. THE SITE, SERVICES AND COLLECTIVE CONTENT ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED.

Limitation of Liability
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE ENTIRE RISK ARISING OUT OF YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SITE, SERVICES AND COLLECTIVE CONTENT, BOOKING OF ANY ACCOMMODATIONS VIA THE SITE AND SERVICES. NEITHER ANYPLACE NOR ANY OTHER PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, OR DELIVERING THE SITE, SERVICES, COLLECTIVE CONTENT WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA OR LOSS OF GOODWILL, SERVICE INTERRUPTION, COMPUTER DAMAGE OR SYSTEM FAILURE OR THE COST OF SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES, OR FOR ANY DAMAGES FOR PERSONAL OR BODILY INJURY OR EMOTIONAL DISTRESS ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS, FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITE, SERVICES OR COLLECTIVE CONTENT, FROM ANY COMMUNICATIONS, INTERACTIONS OR MEETINGS WITH OTHER USERS OF THE SITE, OR SERVICES OR OTHER PERSONS WITH WHOM YOU COMMUNICATE OR INTERACT AS A RESULT OF YOUR USE OF THE SITE, SERVICES, OR FROM YOUR BOOKING OF ANY ACCOMMODATION VIA THE SITE AND SERVICES, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT ANYPLACE HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE, EVEN IF A LIMITED REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. IN NO EVENT WILL ANYPLACE’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS AND YOUR USE OF THE SITE AND SERVICES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, FROM YOUR BOOKING OF ANY ACCOMMODATION VIA THE SITE AND SERVICES, OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SITE, SERVICES, OR COLLECTIVE CONTENT AND IN CONNECTION WITH ANY ACCOMMODATION, EXCEED THE AMOUNTS YOU HAVE PAID OR OWE FOR BOOKINGS VIA THE SITE AND SERVICES AS A GUEST IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRIOR TO THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY, IF NO SUCH PAYMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE, AS APPLICABLE. THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN ANYPLACE AND YOU. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
You agree to release, defend, indemnify, and hold Anyplace and its officers, directors, employees, agents and contractor, harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected with: (i) your access to or use of the Site, Services, or Collective Content or your violation of these Terms; (ii) your Member Content; or (iii) your (a) interaction with any Member, (b) booking of an Accommodation, (c) the use, condition or rental of an Accommodation by you, including, but not limited to any injuries, losses, or damages (compensatory, direct, incidental, consequential or otherwise) of any kind arising in connection with or as a result of a rental, booking or use of an Accommodation.
These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Anyplace and you regarding the Site, Services, Collective Content, and any bookings of Accommodations made via the Site and Services, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Anyplace and you regarding bookings or listings of Accommodations, the Site, Services and Collective Content.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Anyplace’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. Anyplace may assign or transfer these Terms, at its sole discretion, without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications permitted or required hereunder, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be in writing and given by Anyplace (i) via email (in each case to the address that you provide) or (ii) by posting to the Site. For notices made by e-mail, the date of transmission will be deemed the date on which such notice is received.
Controlling Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflict-of-law provisions. You and we agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court located in San Francisco, California, the United States of America. For any actions for which the parties retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights, as set forth in the Dispute Resolution provision below.
You and Anyplace agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or to the use of the Services or use of the Site (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by arbitration, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and Anyplace are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. The decision of the arbitration shall be binding and final. Further, unless both you and Anyplace otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms. The governing law of the arbitration shall be the law and regulation of the State of California, the United States of America, and the rule for the arbitration shall be the Rule of the International Chamber of Commerce. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written request for arbitration. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of California. Arbitration shall be conducted in San Francisco, California, unless you and Anyplace otherwise agree. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Anyplace submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the arbitrator in accordance with the Rule of the International Chamber of Commerce. The arbitrator’s decision may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s decision on the damages claimed must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Modification” section above, if Anyplace changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to firstname.lastname@example.org) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated Date” above or in the date of Anyplace’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Anyplace in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
The failure of Anyplace to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Anyplace. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
If you have any questions about these Terms, please contact Anyplace at email@example.com.
