GarageTime is a third-party booking marketplace that connects DIY enthusiasts who require project space (“Guests”) with owners (“Hosts”) of garages, warehouses, and similar spaces (collectively, “Garages”). Guests book hourly, daily, monthly, or annual Garage space that only includes Garage work time and any specific details in each listing. We do not assume liability for Guests and/or Hosts and solely act as a connecting marketplace online.
All of Your use, access, and other activities relating to the Products and the Garages You book or provide must be in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including, without limitation, laws relating to copyright and other intellectual property use, and to privacy and personal identity. In connection with Your use of the Products and Site, You must not provide incorrect or knowingly false information; copy, distribute, modify, reverse engineer, deface, tarnish, mutilate, hack, or interfere with the Products or the Site, or their operation; frame or embed the Site or other Products; use any personally identifiable information other than for the booking and use of Garages as permitted herein; impersonate another person or gain unauthorized access to another person’s Account (as defined below); introduce any virus, worm, spyware or any other computer code, file or program that is, or may be, intended to damage or hijack the operation of any hardware, software or telecommunications equipment, or any other aspect of the Products or the Site, or operation thereof; or scrape, spider, use a robot or other automated means of any kind to access the Products. Your use of the Products must not be in furtherance of any criminal activity.
3. General Disclaimer
The Site is only a tool for connecting Guests and Owners. We do not guarantee that information provided about Garages, Hosts, or Guests through the Site or any Product is complete or accurate, that conditions in Garages are safe, or that tools and other materials in Garages are functional or will meet your needs. We do not guarantee that Guests will use the Garages as planned or return the Garages without damage. We do not endorse or approve the third-party content We make available on the Site or in the Products, which is offered to You only for Your convenience. We are not obligated to update any information made available by Us or any third parties on the Site or in the Products. By using the Site or any Products, You agree not to hold GarageTime or any of its members, managers, officers, agents, employees, contractor or third party content providers liable for any claim for damages arising out of Your use of the Site or the Products or use or provision of any Garage.
As further described below, we do not guarantee that the Site, the Products or Garages will meet any of Your specific needs. We do not guarantee the performance of the Site or any Product or the performance of any site, device, processor, booking agent, or other third party product with which the Site or any Product interacts.
Prior to listing a Garage for use, all Hosts must have and maintain sufficient insurance to cover the Garage and the activities of the Guests as permitted by the Host’s listing. Notwithstanding the foregoing, GarageTime does not verify insurance coverages of Hosts. You acknowledge that no Garage, Host, Guest, or other third party is insured by Us. Using a Garage, or allowing others to use Your Garage, is done at Your own risk.
In the event You use the hyperlinks included on the Site to access another website or Internet location, You acknowledge that such other sites or locations are not under the control of GarageTime and agree that GarageTime shall not be responsible for any information or other hyperlinks found at any such website or Internet location.

You represent and warrant that Your Account information will be accurate at all times. You must (a) notify Us immediately of any unauthorized use of Your Account and any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that You exit from Your Account at the end of each use of the Products.

You may not transfer Your Account to any other person and You may not use anyone else’s Account at any time without the permission of the Account holder. In cases where You have authorized or registered another individual, including a minor, to use Your Account, You are fully responsible for (i) the online conduct of such User; (ii) controlling the User’s access to and use of the Products; and (iii) the consequences of any misuse.
5. Interactions Between Hosts and Guests
Hosts and Guests are responsible for arranging the details of each rental (except for payment where facilitated by the company), including without limitation, the timing for check-in and check-out, provision of keys, security deposits (if requested by the Host), and the availability of supplies within a Garage. GarageTime disclaims any liability related to the failure of a Host or Guest to meet the agreements of a rental, and does not facilitate rentals except as specifically provided in each Product.
6. Damage to Garages; Disputes Between Guests and Hosts
Each Guest in a Garage is responsible for leaving the Garage in the condition it existed when the Guest arrived, and is responsible for the Guest’s own acts and omissions and of those whom the Guest invited or provided access to the Garage. If a Host claims that a Guest has damaged the Host’s Garage, the Host should notify the Guest immediately and seek reimbursement for such damage. By using a Garage, each Guest agrees to reimburse a Host for any damage it or its invitees caused to a Garage and to provide such reimbursement to the Host promptly and in good faith. GarageTime shall not be liable for a Guest’s failure to pay for damages to a Garage.

9. Payment; Service Fees; Taxes
We charge Hosts a fee when their listing is booked on GarageTime. Payments for Garage Rentals are processed by either Stripe or PayPal. These vendors both charge a fee for each payment, which consists of commission of 10% (part of which benefits GarageTime), with a $2 minimum fee. Hosts are solely responsible for determining their obligations to report, collect, remit or include in their rental fees applicable VAT or other indirect sales taxes, occupancy tax, tourist or other visitor taxes or income taxes
Because the Products merely facilitate the relationship between Guests and Hosts, any cancellation of a Garage after a rental has been agreed to shall be governed by a Host’s policies mentioned on their listing. GarageTime is happy to facilitate refunds as agreed to by each Host and Guest, but bears no responsibility for reimbursing Hosts or Guests in the event of cancellation where there is not an agreement for such a refund. Notwithstanding the foregoing, unless extenuating circumstances exist, amounts due to a Host or Guest under its cancellation policy will be remitted to the Host by GarageTime. GarageTime shall not be liable to any party for the cancellation of a rental or the failure of any party to provide adequate funds as a result of such cancellation, or for GarageTime’s good faith transmission of funds to the non-cancelling party in the event of cancellation.
