2. Our Services. EMERGENCYBNB is a free list service designed to allow Endangered Populations as defined in Section 4 hereinbelow (“Endangered Populations”) around the world to access temporary housing (these persons are referred to as “Guests”) provided by volunteer good Samaritans ("Hosts"). The EMERGENCYBNB online platform ("EMERGENCYBNB Website") allows Guests to identify available temporary residential housing ("Emergency Housing") offered by a Host and to contact the Host who is offering the Emergency Housing. All arrangements regarding Emergency Housing are made directly between the Guests and the Host. Other than through the registration process set forth herein, EMERGENCYBNB has no relationship whatsoever with any Host or Guest and, in no event, does EMERGENCYBNB have any ownership or other relationship to or control over any Host, Guest or Emergency Housing. EMERGENCYBNB's relationship to Hosts and Guests is expressly limited to hosting the EMERGENCYBNB Website, allowing a Host to list Emergency Housing and Guests to access that list so that they can identify potential Emergency Housing and contact the Host. All arrangements between the Guest and Host concerning the Emergency Housing, including without limitation, the dates on which the Emergency Housing will be available, the specifics of the housing relationship, including the room(s) that will be made available, the ages and attributes of Guests, any limitations on the right of access and use, the number of Guests allowed, the use of common spaces and any costs, are the exclusive province of the Host and Guest and, subject only to any issues specifically identified herein, EMERGENCYBNB is not and will never be involved, either directly or indirectly, in those arrangements.
3. How Do I Register to Be a Guest? EMERGENCYBNB does not impose any charge to be a Guest. To register as a Guest or to utilize certain of our Services, you will need to establish an account using a valid, current email address or a valid, current mobile telephone number valid or social media login information. If you register with your email address, you agree to create a unique password that you do not use with any other online product or service.
4. Representations of Guests. In accessing the EMERGENCYBNB Website and securing any Services through the EMERGENCYBNB Website, you expressly represent and warrant that you are a member of an Endagered Population as defined herein. Endangered Populations are refugees, victims of domestic violence and/or evacuees from a recent (within the last 180 days) disaster and that you need temporary housing as a result of this status. For the purpose of qualifying to be a Guest, EMERGENCYBNB adopts the following definitions of Endangered Populations:
EMERGENCYBNB adopts the definition of "refugee" set forth in Article 1 of the 1951 UN Convention, as modified by the 1967 Protocol:
owing to well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, is outside the country of his nationality and is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country.' This definition implies that several qualifying conditions apply to be considered a refugee: (1) ; (2) (being at risk of harm is insufficient reason in the absence of discriminatory persecution); (3) from the persecution feared. The definition of refugees was actually internally displaced persons, economic migrants, victims of natural disasters, and persons fleeing violent conflict but not subject to discrimination amounting to persecution.
EMERGENCYBNB adopts the definition of "domestic violence" established by the United States Department of Justice as:
a pattern of abusive behavior in any relationship that is used by one partner to gain or maintain power and control over another intimate partner. Domestic violence can be physical, sexual, emotional, economic, or psychological actions or threats of actions that influence another person. This includes any behaviors that intimidate, manipulate, humiliate, isolate, frighten, terrorize, coerce, threaten, blame, hurt, injure, or wound someone.
EMERGENCYBNB adopts the following definition of “evacuee”:
a person who is withdrawn or removed from a place of danger, a disaster area to a safe place.
EMERGENCYBNB adopts the following definition of “disaster”:
a sudden event, such as a natural catastrophe, that causes great damage or loss of life.
You further represent and warrant further that: (a) all information you provide in the registration process is and will remain accurate, truthful and current; (b) you have the lawful right to reside in the county and local jurisdiction in which you are seeking Emergency Housing; (c) you are a member of an Endangered Population as defined herein; (d) you have not been convicted of a crime involving violence against another; (e) you have not previously been evicted by a Host offering Emergency Housing; and (iv) that you are not and will not utilize the EMERGENCYBNB Website or any Emergency Housing for an unlawful purpose.
EMERGENCYBNB does not review the status of persons seeking Emergency Housing as Guests. We rely on the good faith of Guests to meet these definitional standards and to honor each of its representations and warranties.
5. How Do I Register to Become a Host? EMERGENCYBNB does not impose any charge to be a Host. To register as a Host or to utilize certain of our Services, you will need to establish an account using a valid, current email address or a valid, current mobile telephone number valid or social media login information.

EMERGENCYBNB does not review the status of persons offering Emergency Housing as Hosts. We rely on the good faith of our Hosts to honor each of its representations and warranties.
All terms and conditions associated with the Guest's stay in Emergency Housing, including without limitation the identity(ies) of the person(s) who are Guests and the duration of the stay, shall be established by and between the Host and the Guest. EMERGENCYBNB has no role in establishing those terms and conditions and it shall have no responsibility for enforcing them in the event of a dispute.

EMERGENCYBNB has no relationship with any Host, Guest or any Emergency Housing offered or utilized hereunder. By accessing the EMERGENCYBNB Website and/or the Emergency Housing, Guest do not obtain any right of use or ownership of the Emergency Housing; those rights shall remain exclusively with each Host. Hosts offering Emergency Housing shall have the right to determine the duration of Guest stay in the Emergency Housing, which right shall, subject only to applicable laws to the contrary, include the right to evict a Guest immediately for cause of for no cause.
ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN HOSTS AND GUESTS REGARDING THE AVAILABILITY AND/OR THE USE OF EMERGENCY HOUSING ARE AND SHALL AT ALL TIMES REMAIN EXCLUSIVELY BERTWEEN THE HOST AND THE GUEST AND NEITHER PARTY SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO JOIN EMERGENCYBNB INTO ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING REGARDING THESE MATTERS AND ALL PERSONS UTILIZING THE EMERGENCYBNB WEBSITE OR ANY SERVICE OFFERED HEREUNDER EXPRESSLY WAIVES ALL CLAIMS AGAINST EMERGENCYBNB THAT RELATE TO THESE MATTERS.
