8.3   We reserve the right to at any time suspend or terminate your Account, your Listing(s) and/or your access to the Website and Services, if in our sole, reasonable discretion, you uses the Services in an illegal, inappropriate or fraudulent manner, or if you violate these Terms or the conditions of our Listing plans as indicated on https://www.misterlocation.com/pricing, without any compensation by MisterLocation being due.

9   Payment Settlement between Renters and Listers 

MisterLocation engaged a payment service provider to enable Renters to pay Listers. Listers are required to provide their bank details to the payment service provider to be able to receive a payout from a Renter. All payment collections and settlements are done by and performed under the terms of the payment service provider. We are not involved in the payment between Renter and Lister at any stage, nor liable for any error, delay or failure of payment by such payment service provider.

10   Cancellations

10.1   As a Renter, you may cancel any request before it is confirmed by the Lister without further obligation. Any cancellation that takes place after an agreement has been reached between the Lister and the Renter, is subject to the individual Lister’s (cancellation and refund) policy. Please review it carefully before arranging any agreement with a Lister.
10.2   The cancellation by a Lister of a confirmed agreement between a Renter and a Lister can impact the high standard of service by which MisterLocation operates. As such, in the event of any cancellation of a confirmed agreement by a Lister, MisterLocation reserves the right to impose penalties on the Lister’s account, including publishing a review indicating a cancelled booking, and suspending or terminating the Lister’s account. In addition, if any Lister cancels more than one confirmed booking, MisterLocation may, in its sole discretion, withhold future payouts to a Lister to make up for any losses incurred as a result of Lister’s initial cancellation. These losses may include but are not limited to the additional costs required to complete a new booking for a Renter that has been displaced by a Lister’s cancellation.

11   Limitation of Liability

11.1   MisterLocation has no control over the quality, availability, conformity, security, lawfulness, integrity, or reliability of a Listing, as well as over the rights and obligations that have sprung from the agreement between Renter and Lister, or the different components thereof. As a Renter, you agree and acknowledge that we are not responsible for examining or warranting Listings. We do not guarantee the availability or accuracy of any Listing, and are not responsible or liable for nonperformance caused by nonperformance or communication failures of Members. 
11.2   MisterLocation cannot be held liable for any damage to or destruction of a Listing caused by a Renter. Neither can we be held liable for any damage to or destruction of goods present at a listed Location caused by any Renter or Lister. Any such damage or destruction shall be governed by the Lister’s terms and conditions in respect of such damage or destruction. 
11.3   We are continuously improving the Website and Services for all users and reserve the right to make changes at any time.

Liability for any form of indirect or consequential damages is excluded.
