By using or accessing www.tripelli.com (the "Site"), you acknowledge that you (the "User") are subject to the following terms and conditions (the "Terms"). Please read the these carefully, particularly before submitting a Property Listing to the Site, or renting a Property listed on the Site, as these Terms constitute a legally binding agreement. You are contracting with Tanner Ross & Co Ltd, operators of Tripelli.com ("we" or "us"). If you do not fully agree to these Terms, you may not access or otherwise use the Site.
The Terms listed here apply from December 2016.
1. The Site Acts as a Marketplace
1.1. WE ARE NOT A PARTY TO ANY RENTAL TRANSACTION. We do not own nor can we enter into any contract concerning any property listed on the Site. Instead, the Site acts as a marketplace to allow an advertiser of our Site (an "Advertiser") to offer for rent, or rent, in a variety of pricing formats, a specific vacation/holiday rental property to potential guests ("Renters"). We are not involved in the actual transaction between Renters and Advertisers even though we may from time to time provide tools that enable a Renter to enter into a transaction to lease a specific property directly from the Advertiser of that property. As a result, the quality, safety or legality of the properties advertised the truth or accuracy of the listings (including the content thereof or any property or guest review), the ability of Advertisers to rent holiday property or the ability of Renters to pay for vacation/holiday rental properties are solely the responsibility of the users.
2. Personal Use
2.1. Although we may in future charge a fee to Advertisers to advertise their vacation/holiday rental properties on the Site, we do not charge Renters to access the Site and research listings. Accordingly, we grant users a limited, revocable, non-exclusive license to access the Site to, as applicable, advertise vacation/holiday rental properties and/or research, view or make legitimate enquiries to Advertisers regarding their interest in particular vacation/holiday rental properties for their personal use, all in accordance with these Terms. Any other use of the Site is expressly prohibited. Importantly, this license does not include any right of collection, aggregation, copying, duplication, display or derivative use of the Site nor any right of use of data mining, robots, spiders or similar data gathering and extraction tools without our prior written permission; provided, however, that a limited exception from the foregoing exclusion is provided to general purpose internet search engines and non-commercial public archives that use tools to gather information for the sole purpose of displaying hyperlinks to the Site, provided they each do so from a stable IP address or range of IP addresses using an easily identifiable agent and comply with our robots.txt file. "General purpose internet search engine" does not include a website or search engine or other service that provide classified listings or property rental advertisements, or any subset of the same, or which is in the business of providing holiday property rental services.
3. Proprietary Rights and Downloading of Information From the Site
3.1. The text, files, images, photos, maps and other materials on the Site (collectively, the "content") are only for your personal use.

We do, however, reserve the right to decline to permit the posting on the Site of, or to remove from, any user-contributed content that fails to meet our content requirements. We may also remove user-contributed content if it is brought to our attention, such as by notice given to us by a user under Clause 4 or 17 of these Terms or by a third party, that Clause 4 of these Terms, or any other requirements governing the posting of such content, has/have been apparently breached in respect of that user-contributed content.

The listing specifically cannot be a mere example of properties in a given area. Only one property can appear on each listing, unless it is a property with multiple rental units on the same site and additional advertising units are purchased. We reserve the right to amend the copy or remove any listing when more than one property is described in such listing, and may choose to retain any fees associated with the initial term of such non-conforming listing as compensation for the violation of this condition.

If we become aware of or receive a complaint from any person or entity regarding a Advertiser's listing or rental practices that, in our reasonable discretion, warrants the immediate removal of such Advertiser's allegedly offensive listing from the Site (for example, and without limitation, if a Advertiser double-books a property for multiple Renters on the same date, or engages in any practice that, in our reasonable discretion, would be considered unfair within the vacation/holiday rental industry, or if we receive a complaint that any listings content infringes on the rights of a third party), then we may immediately remove the allegedly offensive listing from the Site without notice to the Advertiser and without refund while we investigate the basis for the complaint.
