Scope
You acknowledge that FairestBnb is a service to enable bookings and does not act as an agent or is part of any exchange you organise.

We do not screen the identity of any hosts or volunteers and you are solely responsible for ensuring that any person you accept is who they say they are. You are fully responsible for investigating whether your chosen host offered accommodation and opportunities are suitable for you and your needs or whether the volunteer offered skills meet your requirements. FairestBnb does not guarantee the quality of any skill, offer or accommodation. In order to duly complete and secure your booking, you need to use your correct email address. We are not responsible or liable for (and have no obligation to verify) any wrong or misspelled email address or inaccurate or wrong (mobile) phone number. All the information on our platform provided by the host and the volunteer are their responsibility.

FairestBnb disclaims any liability or responsibility for any communication on or through our platform. You cannot derive any rights from any request to, or communication with the host or volunteer, or (any form of) acknowledgement of receipt of any communication or request. FairestBnb cannot guarantee that any request or communication will be (duly and timely) received/read by, complied with, executed or accepted by the host or volunteer.

You authorise FairestBnb to charge the total fee for any booking made in connection with your FairestBnb account. The total fee will be collected after your booking.

Please note that payments may involve the use of third party payment service providers. These service providers may charge you additional fees when processing payments. FairestBnb is not responsible for such fees and disclaims all liability in this regard.

Except as otherwise provided, service fees are non-refundable. Even if a booking is cancelled by the host or the volunteer before the stay takes place. Both of you are responsible for the communication and solution for any financial loss. FairestBnb is not party or will not intervene in this matter in any circumstances.
