Cokoon reserves the right to modify all or part of these Terms at any time, without directly informing the Users. Users are responsible for regularly reading the Terms and agree that posting the modified Terms on the Website is an adequate and constructive notice of any revision. Continued used of the Website and the Service constitutes the User’s consent to such modifications.
The Website, cokoon.com, is a platform putting at the Users’ disposal a collection of short-term rentals and enabling Renters to post rental advertisements and Tenants to book them online.
The rental transactions are established between the Renter and the User, and only bind among them. Cokoon denies all responsibility related to the compliance with the transactions’ terms established through its platform.
Even though Cokoon strives to list quality properties only and handpicks the rentals listed on the Platform, Cokoon is not responsible for the accuracy of the rental offers nor for the compliance of the service provided by the Renter with the offer.
Any booking made through Cokoon’s platform or rental advertisement posted requires the User’s registration beforehand. Registration is free.
This registration is only allowed for:

By posting a description of a specific rental, Users declare to be personally authorized, without any restriction, to rent the advertised property. In order to post an advertisement, Users will have to fill the registration form with all the information needed. They will particularly have to precise the property’s equipment and the specific rental terms such as the cancellation policy, the security deposit, the additional fees and other items that will be determined by the Renter only. Users commit themselves to provide an accurate, complete and thorough information.
Cokoon reserves the right to determine and modify the design of the Website and the advertisements’ layout as well as the content of the registration form. Cokoon denies all responsibility related to the loss of Content or the need to modify it.
By posting Content on the Site, Users automatically grant Cokoon a perpetual, non exclusive, worldwide license to use, copy, perform, display, adapt, modify, distribute, to have distributed and promoted said Content, and to grant and authorize sublicenses of the foregoing.

Cokoon is not responsible of the Content published by Users and does not warrant its accuracy.
A User can make a binding offer for conclusion of a rental contract according to the specified conditions of the advertisement through cokoon.com To do so, the User will have to fill in a booking form in order to make an offer to the Renter. This request does not have any legal value and does not engage Cokoon. The request will be transferred to the property’s Renter who will have 24h to accept or reject the offer. After this deadline, the User will no longer be bound by this bid. Cokoon will send an email informing the User that the request has been received, prior to the Renter’s confirmation. This email does not represent a final confirmation. It is the Renters’ responsibility to update the calendars and other information concerning their advertisement. Therefore, Cokoon cannot warrant that a property is actually available in accordance with the calendar at the time of the booking. Cokoon is not responsible for the consequences in case of invalidity of the property’s advertisement.
The contract will only be effective once Renter and Tenant have accepted the bid and the Tenant paid the deposit. The contract partners will receive an appropriate confirmation email reminding the terms of the contract.
The balance of the total amount of the booking will have to be paid by the Tenant directly to the Renter, along with the additional charges, as specified in the contract. The conditions related to the payment, the cancellation policy, the security deposit and the additional charges will be determined by the Renter. The Renter is not allowed to charge the Renter additional charges non mentioned in the contract or agreed in advanced.
The Renter is the only one in charge of the organisation of the Tenant’s arrival, the check-in and check-out and all the services delivered during the Tenant’s stay. Cokoon does not provide and warrant concerning their quality and their compliance with the Tenant’s expectations.
Registrating as a User and posting an advertisement on cokoon.com is completely free. Cokoon is entitled to a fee when a rental contract is signed for payment processing and various internal procedures linked to handling bookings. This fee is charged to the Tenant only, immediately upon booking online and amounts to 10% of the total reservation and is not refundable. Cokoon reserves the right to modify this fee at any time.
Renters agree to have Cokoon add the Fee to the advanced payment to be paid by the Tenant in consideration for the booked stay. Advanced payment shall exclusively be performed via a debit of the amount set by the Tenant added to Cokoon's Fee from the credit card indicated by the Tenant during the booking procedure.
The User contract runs for an indefinite period of time. The User may terminate the user contract at any time without notice sending a termination notice in writing to Cokoon. Cokoon has the right to terminate a User’s access to the Service and to make over part or all its rights and obligations.
Cokoon does not warrant that our Service will be uninterrupted or secure, that the information obtained by the User via our Service is always accurate and that the service delivered by the Renter for the rentals booked on cokoon.com will always meet the User’s expectations.
The User agrees that any legal remedy consequent to actions of other Users with regards to interactions and transactions made through cokoon.com will be limited to a claim against this particular User and therefore agrees not to attempt to impose liability on Cokoon. The User’s claim will have to be addressed to the User that caused him harm and will not be processed by Cokoon.
