ABUSING HOSTELSFORSALE. Please use the reporting system to tell us about any problems or offensive content so that together we can keep the site working properly. We may limit or terminate our service, remove hosted content and take technical and legal steps to keep users off HostelsForSale if we think that they are creating problems or acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of our policies, regardless of any payment done for the usage of HostelsForSale or any additional service. However, whether we decide to keep a user off HostelsForSale or not, we do not accept any liability for the unauthorized or unlawful use of HostelsForSale by users.
HOSTELSFORSALE. Some of HostelsForSale’s features may display your ad on other sites that syndicate HostelsForSale listings. By using HostelsForSale, you agree that your ads can be displayed on these other sites and may be automatically translated for this purpose. The terms for our other sites are similar to these terms, but you may be subject to additional laws or other restrictions in the countries where your ad is posted. When you choose to post your ad to another site, you may be responsible for ensuring that it does not violate our other site policies. We may remove your ad if it is reported on any of our sites, or if we believe it causes problems or violates any law or policy. HostelsForSale is exclusively for hostels for sale, hostels for lease or hostel projects.
FEES AND SERVICES. Visiting HostelsForSale is generally free. We may charge fees for certain services, specifically for listing items; if the service you use charges a fee, you’ll be able to review and accept that charge based on terms that will be clearly disclosed at the time you post your ad. Our fees are quoted in Euros, and we may change them from time to time.
CONTENT. HostelsForSale contains stuff from us, you, and other users. You agree not to copy, modify, or distribute HostelsForSale, our copyrights or trademarks. When you give us content, you are granting us a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sub-licensable and assignable, right to exercise the exploitation of such contents (including, among others, the reproduction, distribution, communication to the public, transformation and “making available to the public”) by any means and exploitation modalities. We need these rights in order to host and display your content. You understand that your listings will be made available under the Creative Commons License that is included with each listing. You will be the Original Author and HostelsForSale will be the Licensor within the meaning of the Creative Commons License.

We reserve the right to remove content where we have grounds for suspecting the violation of these terms or of any party’s rights.
LIABILITY. You agree not to hold us responsible for things other users post or do. As most of the stuff on HostelsForSale comes from other users, we do not guarantee the accuracy of postings or user communications or the quality, safety, or legality of what’s offered. We also cannot guarantee continuous or secure access to our services. Accordingly, to the extent legally permitted we exclude all implied warranties, terms and conditions. We are not liable for any loss of money, goodwill, or reputation, or any special, indirect, or consequential damages arising out of your use of HostelsForSale. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of warranties or exclusion of damages, so such disclaimers and exclusions may not apply to you.
Despite the previous paragraph, if we are found to be liable, our liability to you or any third party is limited to the greater of (a) the total fees you pay to us in the 12 months prior to the action giving rise to liability, and (b) 100 Euros.
As a proof of payment for any service we offer, HostelsForSale will only issue an “Order Confirmation” that you will see at the end of the payment process, as well as in your email if you wish.
PROTECTION OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS. A large number of very varied products are offered on HostelsForSale by private individuals and professionals throughout the world. Entitled parties, in particular the owners of copyright, trademark rights or other rights owned by third parties can report any offers which many infringe on their rights, and submit a request for this offer to be removed. If a legal representative of the entitled party reports this to us in the correct manner, products infringing on the intellectual property rights will be removed by HostelsForSale.
In order to participate in the Notice of Infringement Programme, you only need to complete a Notice of Infringement Form (PDF) and fax it to HostelsForSale. You can use this form, complete with your signature, to report advertisements which may infringe on your property rights. The information requested in the Notice of Infringement Form is for the purpose of ensuring that the parties reporting these objects are either the entitled party or their officially authorized representative. This information must also enable HostelsForSale to identify the advertisement to be removed. Once we have received your correctly completed Notice of Infringement Form, you can simply send later reports to HostelsForSale via e-mail.
Please Note. This form can only be used by the lawful owners of the intellectual property rights. “Notice of Infringement” is intended to ensure that products offered do not infringe the copyright, trademark right or other intellectual property rights of third parties.
