How the Site Works
The Site can be used to facilitate the booking of residential and other properties listed on the Site. The Site can also be used to exchange exclusive discounts between Members, Owners and Services. As stated above, I.S.C. makes available a platform or marketplace with related technology for Members to arrange for bookings of Accommodations through the Site. You understand and agree that I.S.C. is not a party to any agreements entered into between Members and Owners, nor does I.S.C. have any control over the conduct of Owners, Members or other users of the Site. You understand and agree that I.S.C. is not liable for the quality of any affiliated product sold on the platform or marketplace and only assumes responsibility in the case that an official I.S.C. product containing a proven defect. I.S.C. is not an Owner, a real estate broker, agent, insurer or operator of properties, including, but not limited to, hotel rooms, or any other type of lodging or temporary accommodation, nor is it a provider of properties, including, but not limited to, hotel rooms, other lodgings or Accommodations except for future investments. I.S.C.’s responsibilities are limited to: (i) facilitating the availability of the Site and Services and (ii) serving as the Owners’ collection agent for all payments prior to booking of trip.
Much of the information regarding each Accommodation is provided by its Owners, including, on occasion, the photographs themselves. Photographs of, and information about, an Accommodation are published on the Site to offer prospective guests a reasonable notion regarding the quality and characteristics of the Accommodation. Photographs of the Accommodations are not necessarily accurate visual representations of the Accommodation nor its features and decor.
Although I.S.C. does endeavor to verify and update information about the Accommodations and to update photographs of the Accommodations published on the Site, I.S.C. does not endorse any User Content or any Accommodation and shall therefore not be liable to any user or Member if the published information, User Content, or photographs do not reflect modifications to the décor or other features of the Accommodations made by their respective Owners. I.S.C. does not control the condition, legality or suitability of any Accommodation. I.S.C. is not responsible for and disclaims any and all liability related to any and all listings and Accommodations. Accordingly, any and all Reservations are made at the Member’s own risk.
Bookings and Financial Terms
The Owners and Services, not I.S.C., are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed bookings and making available Accommodations reserved through the Site. If you, as a Member, choose to confirm a Reservation with I.S.C., you agree and understand that you are entering into an agreement with the Accommodation's Owner, and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such Accommodation imposed by the Owner. You acknowledge and agree that that you, and not I.S.C., will be responsible for performing the obligations under any such agreements, that I.S.C. is not a party to such agreements, and that, with the exception of any collection obligations hereunder, I.S.C. disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements.
Only persons who have legal capacity in both their country of residence and the country where the Accommodation is located and who have capacity to guarantee payment of all contracted Services can make Reservations and execute a lease agreement with the Owner of the Accommodation through the Site.
The minimum stay required for most Accommodations is two nights; however, Accommodations may require minimum stays of periods as long as two weeks. In certain countries, there may be a limit on the duration of a Member’s stay. If you wish to arrange a stay of more than three weeks, please make this clear to the I.S.C. agent to confirm whether such a stay is legally permissible.
You agree to the following procedure for making and confirming Reservations:
a) Upon receiving a Reservation request, I.S.C. will contact the Owner to verify whether the Accommodation is available. Certain Accommodations are listed on the I.S.C. Site with the “Book Now” option. For Accommodations that can be reserved through this option, Owners have not always provided I.S.C. with the availability of the Accommodations.
b) If a Reservation request is submitted through the “Book Now” option, I.S.C. will contact the Member within 24 hours to confirm the availability of the Accommodation. If the “Book Now” option is not available for the relevant Accommodation, I.S.C. will contact the Member to confirm whether the Accommodation is available on the requested dates at the phone number and email address provided after receiving the Owner’s confirmation of availability.
c) To confirm a Reservation, a Member must pay the Initial Reservation Payment (as defined below under the heading “Reservation Confirmation”) within 48 hours of I.S.C.’s email confirming the availability of the Accommodation for the requested dates and sending payment information to Member (the “Reservation Payment Period”). I.S.C. shall hold the requested dates at the Accommodation during the Reservation Payment Period.
d) Once receipt of the Initial Reservation Payment is confirmed, I.S.C. will instruct the Owner to definitively book the Accommodation for you on the dates you have requested. Subsequently, I.S.C. will send you an email confirming your Reservation.
e) By submitting an inquiry you will be opted to receive our monthly emails.
Your delay or failure to make the Initial Reservation Payment within the Reservation Payment Period will result in the lapse of the hold on your requested dates at the Accommodation, and I.S.C. will not be able to guarantee the Accommodation’s availability for the requested dates. If you make the Reservation Payment outside of the Reservation Payment Period and the Accommodation is no longer available, I.S.C. will reject or return the payment, in which case you should receive a refund of the entire amount of the payment less any non-refundable credit card charges, bank transaction fees, cancelation fees or similar charges.
Members using credit cards issued in certain countries may be subject to surcharges required by local law. You assume all costs, expenses, fees, taxes or other expenditures applied to any payments or wire transfers by any credit card company, bank or government authority involved in the transaction (even if the credit card company, bank or government authority technically charges I.S.C. Collections). Following successful processing of your Initial Reservation Payment, I.S.C. Collections (or its representative) will send you a confirmation email summarizing your Reservation. I.S.C. reserves the right to charge the Initial Reservation Payment and the Reservation Balance (as defined below) together, summing to 100% of total Booking Payment, upon Reservation Confirmation. Initial Reservation Payments for stays greater than or equal to 5 days and less than 8 days will equal to a payment of 1 week booked. For stays greater than or equal to 2 weeks, the Initial Reservations Payment will equal to a payment of no less than 1 week booked.
The Reservation Balance is the remaining balance of the total Booking Payment after deducting the Initial Reservation Payment. Payment of the Reservation Balance is due at least 10 days in advance of check-in. Reservation Balance must be paid in full upon confirmation if Accommodation’s Owner is given less than 10 days notice. It can be paid via Visa, MasterCard or American Express credit cards or via U.S. bank transfer. Any and all commissions, charges, taxes and rates applicable to Reservation Balance shall be solely borne by the Member.
Administration and Additional Fees
In some destinations, you will be charged an Service Fee, which is payable in conjunction with the Initial Reservation Payment. Additional fees may be charged for cleaning services provided more frequently than once per week during your stay. Our Reservations Team will inform you of any fee prior to booking.
Any desired extension of a Reservation that has already commenced will be subject to availability and will be treated as a new Reservation. Consequently, the Accommodation may not be available to occupy and prices for the Accommodation may not be available at the same rate. In order to confirm an extension with a start date within 30 days, you will need to immediately pay the full amount of the Booking Payment for the term of the extension. In order to confirm an extension more than 30 days in advance of its start date, 50% of the total price of the Booking Payment for the extended term will be due, with the remaining Reservation Balance for that term due 10 days prior to the extension start date. In either case, a new contract must be signed upon confirmation, and any monies paid towards an extension are non-refundable.
Unavailability of the Accommodation and Situations Affecting your Stay
If, for any reason, the Accommodation booked becomes unavailable on the requested dates or if any problem or defect is discovered or occurs during check-in or during the Member’s stay, which would frustrate the Member’s use and enjoyment of the Accommodation prior to completion of his or her stay, I.S.C. will notify the Member that made the Reservation and make all commercially reasonable efforts to provide an alternative Accommodation for the requested dates. I.S.C. will use commercially reasonable efforts to locate an alternative Accommodation with similar amenities at the same price until the problem or defect in the Accommodation is resolved or the Reservation contract terminates (whichever is sooner), but if we cannot locate a suitable, similar Accommodation, we will inform the Member of available alternative Accommodations and how they differ from the reserved Accommodation with respect to features and price.
If the Member is unsatisfied with the alternative Accommodation offered as a result of unavailability, a problem or a defect, he or she may choose to: (a) cancel the Reservation and receive full reimbursement of the Initial Reservation Payment and the Reservation Balance (if any) paid to I.S.C. if the unavailability, problem or defect is discovered before or during check-in; or (b) receive a reimbursement proportional to the length of the unused Reservation term if a problem or defect is discovered during the Member’s stay.
Neither I.S.C. nor the Owner will relocate Members, reimburse Reservation payments or cancel a Reservation in response to requests or complaints resulting from or related to causes that are beyond I.S.C.’s or the Owner’s control, unrelated to the Accommodation or due to acts of God or other force majeure event, including without limitation, general street noise or any kind of disturbance caused by construction, maintenance or repair (whether or not to the Accommodation or the building in which it is located), the condition of the hallways or other amenities, temporary malfunctioning of elevators, maintenance or repairs of common areas ordered by the building management, repairs to neighboring properties, interruption of the Internet or other services and any similar events affecting the Guest’s stay in the Accommodation but beyond the Owner’s or I.S.C.’s control.
Nevertheless, I.S.C. will make commercially reasonable efforts to resolve or minimize the situation. I.S.C. cannot and does not guarantee that its eventual resolution of the situation will not increase expenses for the Member, including increased Reservation Payments or other expenditures. A Member’s exclusive remedies against I.S.C. in any of the above-described events are to: (i) accept I.S.C. Collection’s alternative Accommodation arrangements or (ii) cancel the remaining portion of the accommodation agreement and receive a reimbursement proportional to the length of the reservation term cancelled.
Limitation of Liability
To the maximum extent permitted by law, you accept all risk related to your use of the Site and Services. Neither I.S.C. nor any party involved in creating, producing or delivering the Site or Services will be liable for any incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages, including lost profits, loss of data, loss of goodwill, service interruption, computer damage or system failure, the costs of substitute products or services, damages for personal or bodily injury or emotional distress associated with use of the Site or Services or in any way in connection with these Terms, or for any damages for which you are held liable in connection with your stay in an Accommodation even if a limited remedy set forth herein is found to have failed its essential purpose. Your exclusive remedy against I.S.C. in any way connected to your use of the Site or Services is to discontinue your use of the Site or the Services. You hereby waive and release any and all statutory, equitable or common law remedies for monetary damages you may have against I.S.C. in connection with any damage related to these Terms, the Site, the Services or your stay in an Accommodation. All limitations on liability in these Terms and the exclusive remedies described herein are fundamental bases of the bargain between you and I.S.C..
Our Member Experience staff will contact the Member upon confirmation of Reservation to request his/her credit card information to reserve the flight. This information is necessary for I.S.C. to insure that time-sensitive offers can be honored as well as to monitor the Member’s flight and take any and all appropriate measures related to scheduling and/or rescheduling the check-in process. If the Member misses or changes his or her flight or any other changes to the Member’s flight information occur, the Member must inform Oasis as soon as practicable. If cancelation occurs less than 14 days before departure, Member is responsible for any incurring cancelation fees.
Supplies at the Accommodations
The Accommodations will be supplied with basic hygiene products, including towels, toilet paper and soap. I.S.C. offers Guests the optional Services of supplying the Accommodations with beverages and snacks throughout the Member’s stay. We will charge you for the cost of beverages and snacks in addition to an administrative fee; you will be informed of the relevant administrative fee at the time you request this Service.
Please inform I.S.C. of any special request via email before making your Reservation so that I.S.C. can verify whether your request can be met. Special requests may be subject to additional charges; I.S.C. will notify you of the proposed additional charges for your special request in writing for your authorization. I.S.C. shall not be responsible for your failure to notify us of any special request or necessity and shall not be liable, and shall not make any reimbursement, to any Member whose stay is inadequate as a result of a failure to appropriately notify us of said special request or necessity.
Concierge Cancellation Policy
There will be no refund for the cancellation of any service (including, a la carte, pre-stocking of the home, tours, and activities) that is made after you confirm said service with I.S.C., either via written confirmation or by paying for the service. I.S.C. acts on your behalf as your agent to schedule and confirm these services, and once it is scheduled and confirmed, you are obligated to pay I.S.C.. Please note that rescheduling an activity is the equivalent of canceling it and scheduling a new one.
Rental rates provided on the Site may be quoted in a different currency than the currency in which you will be charged. Upon your request for a Reservation, I.S.C. will determine, in its sole discretion, the currency in which you will be charged based on the payment method you select and the location of the Accommodation you are booking. If you are charged in a currency other than that in which the rental price was quoted, the price will be calculated based on the most recent applicable foreign exchange rate according to your financial institution as of the date and time that your Reservation is confirmed. Similarly, third-party payment processors may also use a currency conversion rate for or impose a currency conversion fee on your payment or payout. You acknowledge that none of these currency conversion rates or fees are controlled by or known to I.S.C..
Any charges, commissions, taxes, rates and other fees applicable to payments shall be borne exclusively by the Member. Therefore, I.S.C. may impose or deduct foreign currency processing costs or fees from any foreign currency remittances to Members.
I.S.C. may, in its sole discretion, round up or round down amounts that are payable from or to Members or Owners to the nearest whole functional base unit in which the currency is denominated; for example, I.S.C. will round up an amount of $100.50 to $101.00, and $104.49 to $104.00. Some currencies are denominated in large numbers. In those cases, I.S.C. may determine the functional base unit in which those currencies are denominated to be 10, 100 or 1,000 of the currency; the corresponding examples for such currencies would be for I.S.C. to round up an amount of 1,145 up to 1,150 and 1,144 down to 1,100, or 35,450 up to 35,500 and 35,449 down to 35,400, or 837,500 up to 838,000 and 837,499 down to 837,000.
Payment Processing Errors
We will take steps to rectify any payment processing errors of which we become aware. These steps may include crediting or debiting (as appropriate) the same payment method used for the original payout to or payment by you, so that you end up receiving or paying the correct amount.
You understand and acknowledge that the jurisdiction where your Accommodation is located may require Owners to collect taxes from Members on the amount paid for the right to use and/or occupy an Accommodation, and otherwise empower governmental agencies, departments or authorities to collect and enforce these tax obligations and liabilities (each such agency, department or authority, a “Tax Authority”). These taxes are sometimes called “occupancy taxes,” “hotel taxes,” “lodging taxes,” “transient taxes,” “sales and use taxes,” “value added taxes,” “room taxes” or “tourist taxes” (collectively referred to hereinafter as "Occupancy Taxes"). Occupancy Taxes vary between jurisdictions but, if applicable, are generally calculated as a percentage of the rental or occupancy charge or a set daily amount.
If a Tax Authority asserts that I.S.C. or Owners with property in that jurisdiction have Occupancy Tax liabilities and obligations, I.S.C. may decide in its sole discretion to facilitate collection and remittance of Occupancy Taxes from Members on behalf of Owners. In any jurisdiction in which we decide to do so, you hereby instruct and authorize I.S.C. to collect Occupancy Taxes on behalf of Owners at the time rental amounts are collected, and to remit such Occupancy Taxes to the Tax Authority. The amount of Occupancy Taxes collected and remitted through facilitation by I.S.C., if any, will be visible to and separately stated to Members on their respective transaction documents. If I.S.C. facilitates collection and remittance of Occupancy Taxes on behalf of any Owners, those Owners should not collect Occupancy Taxes from you. Members acknowledge and agree that in some jurisdictions, I.S.C. may not be able to facilitate collection and remittance of Occupancy Taxes and that if I.S.C. has not provided notice that it will collect and remit Occupancy Taxes to the Tax Authority on behalf of an Owner with an Accommodation in that jurisdiction, Owners and Members remain solely responsible and liable for collection and remitting any and all Occupancy Taxes that may apply to the Accommodations. In any jurisdiction in which we collect and remit Occupancy Taxes on behalf of the Owners, Members expressly grant us permission to transfer data and other information relating to the relevant Occupancy Taxes collected and remitted relating to your transactions.
You expressly agree, consistent with the provisions under the heading “Indemnification and Release,” to waive and to release I.S.C. (or any supplier or vendor that I.S.C. may use) from any and all claims associated with the collection and remittance of any Occupancy Taxes. You also agree that we may seek additional amounts from you in the event that the Occupancy Taxes collected or remitted are insufficient to fully discharge your obligations to the Tax Authority, and that your sole remedy for Occupancy Taxes collected is a refund from the applicable Tax Authority in accordance with the applicable procedures set by that Tax Authority.
You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for compliance with any and all laws, rules, regulations and tax obligations that may apply to your access and use of the Site, Content or Services.

I.S.C. may involve and cooperate with law enforcement authorities in prosecuting users who violate these Terms. I.S.C. may access, preserve and disclose any of your information if we are required to do so by law, or if we believe in good faith that it is reasonably necessary to (i) respond to claims asserted against I.S.C. or to comply with legal process (for example, subpoenas or warrants), (ii) enforce or administer our agreements with users, such as these Terms, (iii) for fraud prevention, risk assessment, investigation, customer support, product development and de-bugging purposes, or (iv) protect the rights, property or safety of I.S.C., the users, or members of the public. You acknowledge that I.S.C. has no obligation to monitor your access to or use of the Site, Services or Content, but has the right to do so for the purpose of operating and improving the Site and Services (including without limitation for fraud prevention, risk assessment, investigation and customer support purposes), to ensure your compliance with these Terms, to comply with applicable law or the order or requirement of a court, administrative agency or other governmental body, or to respond to content that it determines is otherwise objectionable or as set forth in these Terms.

THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN I.S.C. AND YOU.

Indemnification and Release
You agree to release, defend, indemnify and hold harmless I.S.C. and its affiliates, subsidiaries and contractors, and their respective officers, representatives, directors, employees and agents, from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, injuries, losses, and expenses (compensatory, direct, incidental, consequential or otherwise), including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees and expenses, arising out of or in any way connected with (a) your access to or use of the Site, Services, or Content or your violation of these Terms; (b) your User Content; (c) your interaction with any Member, Owner or other user of the Site or Services; your (d) booking of an Accommodation; and (e) your use or an Accommodation.
These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between I.S.C. and you regarding the Site, Services, Content and any Reservations of Accommodations made via the Site, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between I.S.C. and you regarding Reservations of Accommodations, the Site, Services and Content.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without I.S.C.’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. I.S.C. 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 I.S.C. (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 receipt will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
Controlling Law; Jurisdiction and Dispute Resolution
These Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, United States of America, without regard to its conflict-of-law provisions. This section will survive termination of these Terms.
NOTICE OF ARBITRATION AGREEMENT. You and I.S.C. agree that any dispute or claims (whether under a statute, in contract, tort, or otherwise) 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 the Site will be fully and finally settled by binding, mandatory arbitration,
Other than as described above, you and we each GIVE UP OUR RIGHTS TO (a) GO TO COURT to assert or defend claims under these Terms (EXCEPT for matters failing within the jurisdiction of a small claims court) AND (b) TO A TRIAL BY JURY or to participate as a class member. You are entitled to a FAIR HEARING, BUT arbitration procedures are SIMPLER and more limited than rules applicable in court. Arbitrator decisions are as enforceable as judicial decisions and are subject to VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT.
Class Action and Jury Trial Waiver. Any dispute or claim must be brought in the respective party’s individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, collective, representative, multiple plaintiff, or similar proceeding (“Class Action”). The parties expressly waive any ability to maintain any Class Action in any forum. Unless both you and I.S.C. both otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over a Class Action or representative proceeding. If for any reason (a) these Class Action provisions are held unenforceable or (b) this arbitration agreement between you and I.S.C. is deemed unenforceable or non-arbitrable, you and I.S.C. agree that any and all claims or disputes shall be fully and finally resolved by a court of competent jurisdiction sitting in the City of New York by bench trial, (i.e., a judge will decide the facts and you WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY).
Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as permissibly modified by these Terms. The AAA Rules are available at http://www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The Federal Arbitration Act (9 United States Code §§ 1-16) will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
Arbitration Process. To initiate arbitration, a party must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at http://www.adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_004175 and a separate form for California residents at http://adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_004314. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of New York and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
Place of Arbitration and Procedure. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and I.S.C. submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. Whether the hearing will be conducted electronically, telephonically, or in person, will be determined by the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules; reasonable fees may apply. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration. The arbitration shall be conducted in the City of New York, unless the arbitrator determines, consist with the AAA Rules, that face-to-face proceedings are necessary and that the City of New York is not a reasonably convenient location.
Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award of damages must be consistent with these Terms.
Fees. Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules.
Changes. Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Modification” section above, you may reject any change we make to this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these Terms or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms by sending us written notice (including by a message sent to us by way of our website) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated Date” above or in the date of our email notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are confirming that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and I.S.C. in accordance with the relevant “Dispute Resolution” of these Terms on the date you first accepted these Terms or the date you accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms (whichever is later).
Without prejudice to the foregoing reference of disputes to binding arbitration, you and we agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of any court sitting in the City of New York solely with respect to any actions for injunctive or other equitable relief to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights.
The failure of I.S.C. 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 I.S.C.. 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 I.S.C. at firstname.lastname@example.org.
