General Terms & Conditions for owners and agents adverts
Information about us
Our site is operated by us and we trade as "Simila Cyprus". Our registered address is: 5 Sotiraki Markidi, Pafos, Cyprus.
We are an advertising service for Advertisers and an accommodation search facility for Holidaymakers. We do not own, inspect or provide content for any of the properties advertised on our site. The one qualification is our special photography service for Advertisers. Where you see photographs or videos displaying the words 'Visited / Recommended by Simila Cyprus ', these have been taken by photographers working for or in conjunction with us, as a result of the Advertiser commissioning such service from us. However, although we may provide the photograph or video, we do not warrant that we have conducted an inspection of all the properties. Advertiser shall be responsible for ensuring that it has all necessary rights, licences and authorisations to rent property.
Except in relation to adverts allowing online booking where we may act as an agent in order to facilitate payments to enable transactions between Advertiser and Holidaymaker. We make no claims as to the quality, safety or legality of any of the properties advertised. Neither can we confirm the accuracy of the advertisements or their content. It is the sole responsibility of the Advertiser to be eligible to rent the property and the sole responsibility of the Holidaymaker to pay for the rental.
Simila Cyprus will advertise the owners or agents property on our website at an agreed price set by the owner or agent, plus our fee added to this figure. The owner or agent can vary these prices for different periods of the year and can inform Simila Cyprus of any discounts or special offers as they so wish. Simila Cyprus will inform owners and agents of any customers requests for discount and it is up to the owner whether these are accepted or not.
Simila Cyprus will send statements to owners showing the amount of bookings and commission. The preferred method of payment for deposits, balance and commission is by our Paypal Business Account.
FREE ADVERTS - We agree to make a webpage for your property, with photos and description supplied by the owner or agent. We will verify the property to the best of our ability and we will visit all properties that are within our ‘Personally Recommended’ section. All photos supplied by the owner or agent must be taken within the last 18 months and must be a true representation of the current condition of the property and location. We withhold the authority to refuse to advertise any property that we consider not up to standard of cleanliness and accurate description.
Optional Paid Upgrade Packages
We offer the facility to upgrade adverts into our Special Offer section and Personally Recommended section. Please speak directly for details as packages vary for different types of property.
Material on our site
All copyright, database rights, trade marks and design rights in our site and in the material published on it belong to us, our licensors or our Advertisers.
You may download material from our site for the sole purpose of using our site, but you must not copy, transmit, modify, republish, save, pass off or link to any content or material on our site without our prior written consent.
You may forward material from our site to third parties. By doing this you confirm that you have obtained prior consent to receiving material from our site from any third parties to whom you send material.
Advertisers, Holidaymakers or any other person shall not use our site for any marketing or advertising purposes which are not permitted by us. Any such use of our site shall, in our discretion, result in us refusing to list any property and/or discontinuing the ability of the person infringing this provision from using our site.
Consideration should always be given to the nature of advertisements and contracts transacted on the Internet, and the risks involved. Direct contact between Advertisers and Holidaymakers in relation to a booking may not occur and so you must therefore proceed with care and judgement when using our site.
Any contract for the rental of any property listed on our site is directly between an Advertiser and a Holidaymaker (each a "Booking Contract") and we are not a party to that contract.
In recognition of this, you acknowledge that any claim you may have that is in any way connected with a dispute you have with an Advertiser on our site must be brought directly against that Advertiser and not against us.
We may provide an online payment platform, giving you the ability to make online payments to Advertisers via PayPal, credit card, debit card or other payment options. We may change or withdraw such platform at any time without notice in our sole discretion.
Although we may provide the technical platform to enable such payments, we are not responsible for the payment solutions themselves and we still are not a party to the contract between you and the Advertiser. In particular, we are not responsible for any decision taken by PayPal or another provider to decline your payment, based on its risk assessment of you or that transaction. You shall not hold us liable for any losses you suffer as a result of making an online payment to an Advertiser. If you need customer support in relation to an online payment, you should contact PayPal or your bank or credit card provider (as applicable).
You agree to indemnify and keep us indemnified from and against any and all claims, actions, proceedings, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses (including legal fees) suffered or incurred by us arising out of or in connection with your use of our online payment platform to make payments to Advertisers, in particular any claims from Advertisers, PayPal or other payment solution providers resulting from your actions or omissions.
Our limitation of liability and responsibility
We act merely as an advertising service through which Advertisers can advertise properties to Holidaymakers. We do not own nor have we inspected nor do we have any control whatsoever over any property listed on our site and we make no representations or warranties regarding any of the properties.
While we require Advertisers to advertise properties truthfully, fairly and accurately, and we take reasonable steps to remove advertisements from our site following any complaint from a Holidaymaker or another Advertiser, we have no control over the accuracy of any advertisement or the capacity of any Advertiser to make a booking with a Holidaymaker.
As such, we disclaim all liability and responsibility for any loss or damage (including personal injury) suffered or incurred by you or another party arising from:
any reliance by any user of our site, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents, placed on any advertisement, commentary and other materials posted on our site by Advertisers, or any error or mistake or inaccuracy contained in any statement, description, representation or other information made about or in connection with a property listed on our site;
the act or omission of the Advertiser or any failure of the Advertiser to perform or comply with any of the terms of the contract between the Advertiser and you, including a failure to provide the property on the requested date (whether due to a double-booking or otherwise), or a failure to provide the property in the condition or with the amenities that such property was advertised on our site;
any loss of or damage to personal possessions at a property; or
any incident or occurrence which takes place at a property.
Although we will do our best to prevent intentional misuse of our site and the dissemination of harmful programs via our site, we will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by any intentional misuse of our site or the distribution of viruses or other technologically harmful material that may infect your computer equipment, computer programs, data or other proprietary material due to your use of our site.
If we are in breach of these terms or otherwise liable to you (including, without limitation, for our negligence), we will only be responsible for any direct damages or losses you incur that result from your use of our site up to the value of the fees (if any) that you have paid to us. We shall not be liable for any indirect losses or damages suffered by you. Our liability to you shall not in any event include business losses (which includes without limitation loss or corruption of data, loss of profits or contracts, loss of revenue, loss of anticipated savings in expenditure, or business interruption) as a result of our breach of contract or negligence or otherwise.
This does not affect our liability for fraudulent misrepresentation or if something we do negligently causes death or personal injury, nor any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.
