USES OF OUR TRADEMARK OR LOGOS
There are limited ways in which you may use our trademarks or logos without specific prior written authorization. The following are general guidelines: It is usually permissible for you to refer to Holiday World Rentals or the name of one of our affiliate websites on which you list your property in a descriptive manner in your listing on the Website or in other permissible communications. For example, you might say “Check out my holiday rental on Holiday World Rentals,” or “I list properties on Holiday World Rentals.” However, you may not refer to Holiday World Rentals or any of our affiliates in any way that might lead someone to believe that your company or website is sponsored by, affiliated with, or endorsed by Holiday World Rentals or one of our affiliates. For example, you may not say “Holiday World Rentals sponsors my holiday rental,” or describe your property as “Holiday World Rentals’s best holidayrental.” You may not use the Holiday World Rentals name or one of our affiliates’ names on any other website that lists holiday rentals without our prior written authorization.
The Holiday World Rentals name and logo and those of the Holiday World Rentals Company and our affiliates are registered trademarks in the country and other jurisdictions around the world. We generally do not permit the use of our names and logos, other than as described above or with our prior written authorization. If you want permission to use our name and/or logo in any other manner, including, without limitation, on any website, business card, signage, t-shirts, etc., or if you have other questions, you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We reserve the right to refuse hypertext links to, or addresses of, other web websites from members’ pages, and to remove links or web addresses without notice at our sole discretion. Further, we reserve the right to charge for hypertext links at any time.
SUBSTITUTION OF PROPERTIES, ADVERTISING MORE THAN ONE PROPERTY, PROPERTY MANAGERS
Each advertisement must relate to an individual and uniquely identified property, unless .
i. You are a property manager who has signed up for one of our packages for members who are property managers.
ii. You otherwise purchased a subscription package that expressly allows for substitution of properties. This means that:
1. The property in an advertisement may not be substituted for another property without our consent. We may approve a request if the property that was listed was sold or the contract with the owner was cancelled and the member provides sufficient proof thereof and completes any additional request forms we may request. The term of the subscription for any substituted property shall be the same as the term of the originally listed property (i.e., the term will not be extended past the original term).
If a member submits changes to an existing listing that, if approved, would substantially alter the listing to make it that of another property, then we have the right to terminate the listing and may choose, in our sole discretion, to retain any fees associated with the term of the previously existing listing as compensation for the violation of this condition.
2. The listing specifically cannot be a mere example of properties in a given area. Only one property can appear on each advertisement, unless it is a property with multiple rental units on the same website and additional advertising units are purchased. We reserve the right to amend the copy or remove any advertisement when more than one property is described in such advertisement, and may choose, in our sole discretion to retain any fees associated with the initial term of such non-conforming listing as compensation for the violation of this condition.
3. Members who manage twenty or more properties should contact Holiday World Rentals for Property Managers at +39 3382189323 to discuss the packages that may best suit their needs. All other subscription listing packages require one subscription per listing (one subscription per property). Contact Holiday World Rentals for Property Managers for additional information.

Payments between members and travelers: We are not a party to any payment transaction between members and travelers. No member may request any traveler to mail cash, or utilize any instant-cash wire transfer service such as Western Union or Money Gram in payment for all or part of a property rental transaction. Any violation of this term or any other unacceptable payment methods that may be posted on the Website may result in the immediate removal of the non-conforming listing from the Website without notice to the member and without refund. From time to time, we may become aware of users attempting to conduct a transaction that would involve an unauthorized payment method or a fraudulent payment method. Ideally, we hope to be able to assist users in avoiding such transactions, but we assume no liability or responsibility to do so or to inform users of any such actual or suspected activity.
Payments for subscriptions: Payment for subscription listings must be made to us in U.S. Dollars paid either by major credit or debit card, or a check drawn on a U.S. bank.
Automatic Renewal: As applicable, for any subscription paid for by credit card, such subscription shall automatically renew at the expiration of the then-current term for an additional term of the same duration (as the previous term) and at the then-current non-promotional subscription rate. If such subscription was purchased by check or another form of payment other than by credit card (if such other payment form was permitted), such subscription shall not be automatically renewed. Automatic renewal applies to all subscriptions purchased by credit card on or after the applicable date set forth above and all subscriptions in force as of such date if we contact the member to obtain the credit card information in order to facilitate automatic renewal. This automatic renewal feature allows your service to remain uninterrupted at the expiration of your then-current term. If you wish to turn off auto-renewal, you must log on to your account and manually turn off auto-renewal in your owner dashboard at any time prior to expiration of the then-current term. Upon any such turning off auto-renewal, your subscription will remain active through the expiration of your then-current subscription term; however your subscription will not be automatically renewed upon the expiration of your then current term. If your subscription does not auto-renew or expires at the end of your then current subscription term and you desire to renew your subscription, you will be required to pay the then-current non-promotional subscription rate to renew your subscription or to activate a new subscription.
If you do not turn off auto-renewal and you continue to use our subscription service, you re-affirm and authorize us to charge your credit card at the end of each subscription term for an additional term of the same duration as the initial term and at the then-current non-promotional subscription rate for the same product or service.
If the product or service that you last purchased has changed in any way or is no longer offered, you agree and authorize us to charge your credit card at the renewal of your subscription term for a product or service that is the most similar, as determined by us, to the product or service that you previously purchased, even if the price of such product or service is not the same of the prior product or service that you purchased. You agree to be responsible for any such charges, and we reserve the right to obtain payment directly from you if necessary.
SUBSCRIPTION TERM, REFUND REQUESTS & TERMINATION/CANCELLATION OR TRANSFER OF LISTINGS
Subscription Term: All listings are sold to run the full term that is chosen by the member. The term starts on the date that the member submits the full or initial (as applicable) payment and expires on the last date of the term chosen by the member. For example, for an annual subscription term, if the member submits payment for the subscription on July 1st, the subscription would expire on June 30 of the following year.
