5. HOW THE SITE AND SERVICES WORK

The below Subsections apply only to booking Accommodations through Our Site. When you book a Stella Stays Accommodation through other third-party service providers (e.g., Airbnb, HomeAway, VRBO, Booking.com, Expedia, etc.), you are subject to that third-party service provider’s terms of service and other applicable terms, agreements, rules, regulations, and/or guidelines.

A. Booking Accommodations and Reservation Procedure

As set forth in Section 2, above, Stella Stays master leases vacation rentals and multifamily properties, which We design, furnish, maintain, and operate for short term use by Our guests ("Accommodations"). To book an Accommodation through Our Site, you must search for a property in a desired city and select the dates of your stay (the "Reservation Procedure").

Once you have selected your desired property and dates of your stay, you must provide Stella Stays with certain personally identifiable information, such as your first and last name, valid e-mail address, phone number (collectively, "Personal Information"), and any special requests regarding your stay. We will also collect and send to Our third-party payment processor your valid credit card information, which includes your credit card number, expiration date, zip code, and CVC number (collectively, "Payment Information"). Our collection of your Personal and Payment Information is collected, maintained, processed, and stored in compliance with Our Privacy Policy. Any Personal and Payment Information collected, maintained, processed, and/or stored by Our third-party payment processor is subject to and governed by its separate and distinct privacy policy, which can be accessed through our website. By providing Us with your Personal and Payment Information, you hereby acknowledge and agree that we will use your Personal and Payment Information to book an Accommodation for you.

You also acknowledge and agree that We are permitted to use your Personal Information to confirm your identity. For transparency and fraud prevention purposes, and as permitted by applicable laws, we may, but have no obligation to, (i) ask You to provide a form of government identification or other information or undertake additional checks designed to help verify your identity or background; (ii) screen You against third-party databases or other sources and request reports from third-party service providers; and (iii) where We have sufficient information to identify you, obtain reports from public records of criminal convictions or sex offender registrations, or an equivalent version of background or registered sex offender checks in your local jurisdiction (if available). For the purposes of this subparagraph, Your Personal Information is collected, maintained, processed, and/or stored in compliance with Our third-party service provider’s separate and distinct privacy policy, which can be accessed through our website.

Once you have completed the Reservation Procedure and your Personal and Payment Information has been processed and verified, We will send you a confirmation e-mail regarding your Accommodation to the e-mail address you provided. Once you have booked an Accommodation, Stella Stays grants you a limited license to enter, occupy, and use the Accommodation for the duration of your stay, during which time Stella Stays (only where and to the extent permitted by applicable law) retains the right to re-enter the Accommodation in accordance with these Terms.

You agree to leave the Accommodation no later than the checkout date and time that is specified in your confirmation e-mail. Except as provided in Subparagraph F, below, if you stay past the agreed upon checkout date and time without Our consent ("Overstay"), you will no longer have a license to stay in the Accommodation, and Stella Stays is entitled to make you leave in a manner consistent with applicable law. Additionally, you hereby acknowledge and agree to pay, for each 24-hour period (or any portion thereof) that you Overstay, an additional nightly fee of up to two times (2x) the average nightly listing fee originally paid by you to cover the inconvenience suffered by Us, plus all applicable Guest Fees, Taxes, and any legal expenses incurred by Us to make you leave (collectively, "Overstay Fees"). If you Overstay at an Accommodation, you authorize Stella Stays to charge you to collect Overstay Fees.

B. Additional Fees

In addition to paying the listing fee for an Accommodation, you will also be charged for other fees that may be applicable to your Accommodation, including, but not limited to, cleaning fees; service charges; and state and local use, sales, hotel, lodging, and/or occupancy taxes (collectively, "Additional Fees"). All Additional Fees for Accommodations booked through Our Site will be listed during the Reservation Procedure and itemized on the invoice sent to the e-mail address you provide.

C. Accommodation Extensions

At any time before or during your stay at an Accommodation, but no later than 24-hours prior to your agreed upon checkout date and time, you may extend your stay so long as there is no booking conflict with another guest for the Accommodation. To extend your stay, you may call Us at +971 4 242 5595 or write to Us by e-mail at hello@stellastays.com and state your desired extension. If the Accommodation is available, We will process your extension and send you confirmation of same as set forth in Subsection A, above. Extensions on Accommodations are subject to Additional Fees.

D. Unavailability of the Accommodation and Situations Affecting Your Stay

In the event an Accommodation becomes unavailable prior to your agreed upon reservation, We will notify you by e-mail at the e-mail address you provide Us and automatically cancel your booking. At that time, you will have the option to either (a) obtain a full refund on your Accommodation, or (b) relocate to another Accommodation of lessor or equal value, subject to availability.

E. Accommodation Modifications, Cancellations, and Refunds

All reservations with Stella Stays made at least 14 days before check-in are fully refundable if canceled at least 14 days before check in. Cancellations made less than 14 days before your check in time are not eligible for a refund.
