Home » Terms and Conditions
Welcome to SportsStay.com! By using or accessing SportsStay.com (the "Site"), you acknowledge that you agree to and are subject to the following terms and conditions, (the "Terms"). If you do not fully agree to these Terms, you may not access or otherwise use the Site. You should read through all the Terms carefully. The Terms constitute a legally binding agreement between you and Sports Stay, LLC, Inc. ("Sports Stay, LLC", "we", "us" or "our").
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT WE ARE NOT A PARTY TO ANY RENTAL TRANSACTION. We do not own nor can we contract for any vacation rental property listed on the Site. Instead, the Site acts as a venue to allow a member of our Site (each, a "member") to offer for rent, or rent, in a variety of pricing formats, a specific vacation rental property to potential renters (each, a "traveler" and, collectively with a member, the "users"). We are not involved in the actual transaction between travelers and members even though we may from time to time provide tools, such as direct booking, that enable a traveler to enter into a transaction to lease a specific property directly from the member of that property. As a result, the quality, safety or legality of the properties advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings (including the content thereof or any property or guest book review), the ability of members to rent vacation property, the value or fulfillment of any complementary add-ons or similar features that may be offered in connection with any property advertised in an effort to attract a rental, such as complementary gift cards or other complementary products or services (what we call a "freebie") or the ability of travelers to pay for vacation rental properties are solely the responsibility of the users.
Although we do charge a fee to members to advertise their vacation rental properties on the Site, we do not charge travelers to access the Site and research listings. Accordingly, we grant users a limited, revocable, non-exclusive license to access the Site to, as applicable, advertise vacation rental properties and/or research, view or make legitimate inquiries to members regarding their interest in particular vacation rental properties for their personal use, all in accordance with these Terms. Any other use of the Site is expressly prohibited. Importantly, this license does not include any right of collection, aggregation, copying, duplication, display or derivative use of the Site nor any right of use of data mining, robots, spiders or similar data gathering and extraction tools without our prior written permission; provided, however, that a limited exception from the foregoing exclusion is provided to general purpose internet search engines and non-commercial public archives that use tools to gather information for the sole purpose of displaying hyperlinks to the Site, provided they each do so from a stable IP address or range of IP addresses using an easily identifiable agent and comply with our robots.txt file. "General purpose internet search engine" does not include a website or search engine or other service that provide classified listings or property rental advertisements, or any subset of the same, or which is in the business of providing vacation property rental services.
The Site is protected by copyright as a collective work and/or compilation, pursuant to U.S. copyright laws, international conventions, and other copyright laws.

We may change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the Site at any time, including the availability of any Site features, database, or content. We may also impose limits on certain features or services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Site without notice or liability.
Each user acknowledges and agrees that, regardless of such user's physical location, we may store and process any data transmitted to the Site from such user at locations both within and outside of the United States.
User verification on the Internet is difficult and we cannot and do not confirm each user's purported identity. We encourage you to communicate directly with a traveler or member through the tools available on the Site. You agree to (i) keep your password and online ID secure and strictly confidential, providing it only to authorized users of your account, (ii) instruct each person to whom you give your online ID and password that he or she is not to disclose it to any unauthorized person, (iii) notify us immediately and select a new online ID and password if you believe your password may have become known to an unauthorized person, and (iv) notify us immediately if you are contacted by anyone requesting your online ID and password. When you give someone your online ID and online password, you are authorizing that person to access and use your account, and you are responsible for any and all transactions that person performs while using your account, even those transactions that are fraudulent or that you did not intend or want performed.
EACH USER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT: (X) NEITHER THE SITE NOR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES WILL HAVE ANY LIABILITY TO ANY USER FOR ANY UNAUTHORIZED TRANSACTION MADE USING ANY USERíS PASSWORD THAT OCCURS BEFORE SUCH USER HAS NOTIFIED US OF POSSIBLE UNAUTHORIZED USE OF SUCH PASSWORD AND WE HAVE HAD A REASONABLE OPPORTUNITY TO ACT ON THAT NOTICE; AND (Y) THE UNAUTHORIZED USE OF YOUR ONLINE ID AND PASSWORD COULD CAUSE YOU TO INCUR LIABILITY TO BOTH THE SITE AND OTHER USERS. Further, we may suspend or cancel your listing at any time even without receiving notice from you if we suspect that your password is being used in an unauthorized or fraudulent manner.
You agree that, with respect to other personal information that you obtain through the Site or through any Site-related communication or any Site-facilitated transaction, we have granted to you a license to use such information only for: (a) any Site-related communications that are not unsolicited commercial messages, (b) using services offered through the Site, (c) facilitating a financial transaction between you and the other user (such as an on-line booking or charging a personal credit card) and (d) any other purpose that a user expressly agrees to after you tell them the purpose you would like to use it for. In all cases, you must give users an opportunity to remove themselves from your address book or database and a chance to review what information you have collected about them. In addition, under no circumstances, except as defined in this provision, can you disclose personal information about another user to any third party without both our consent and the consent of the other user. You agree that other users may use your personal information to communicate with you in accordance with this provision. Further, you agree that you will protect other users' personal information with the same degree of care that you protect your own confidential information, and you assume all liability for the misuse, loss, or unauthorized transfer of such information.
We do not tolerate spam. Therefore, without limiting the foregoing, you are not licensed to add a Site user, even a user who has rented a vacation property from you or to you, to your mailing list (email or physical mail) without the user's express consent.
You may not use the "Email This Item to a Friend" service or other email services that we may offer to send spam or otherwise send content that would violate these Terms. We do not permanently store email messages or the email addresses sent from these tools. If you send email using the "Email This Item to a Friend" service to an email address that is not registered in our community, we do not use that email address for any purpose other than to send your email. We do not rent or sell these email addresses.
We do not and cannot review all content posted to the Site by members, or by other users or travelers who may have posted on the Site a review of or guest book entry for any particular rental property, and we are not responsible for any such materials posted by such members, travelers or other users. All property listings on the Site are submitted by the member and are the responsibility of the member, and we specifically disclaim any and all liability arising from the alleged accuracy of the listings, property reviews, guest book entries, the value, accuracy or fulfillment of any "freebies" that may be offered by any member, or any alleged breaches of contract on a member's part. If you are a member, by accepting these Terms and paying to list on the Site, you agree to indemnify and hold the Site and any member of the Sports Stay, LLC (as defined below) harmless against all costs, expenses and losses arising out of a claim relating to the content of your advertisement. Members are solely responsible for keeping their property information up to date on the Site, including, but not limited to any and all representations about any property, its amenities, location, applicable "freebies", and its availability for a specific date or range of dates. We do not represent or warrant that any of the copy, content, property reviews, guest book entries, property location, suitability, applicable "freebies", pricing or availability information published on the Site is accurate or up-to-date even in the case where prospective travelers have searched for specific special offers, dates, or types of properties. Members are solely responsible for ensuring the accuracy of any property descriptions. However, we reserve the right at all times to disclose any information known to us as necessary to satisfy any law, regulation or government request, or to edit, refuse to post or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, that in our sole discretion are objectionable or in violation of these terms. Further if you are a traveler, please be aware that any advertised "freebies" are only available if you actually rent from an owner the property listed with the applicable "freebie" offer.

No refunds or extensions of time are available for disabled listings. Refunds for one year listings are only available for your first listing cancelled during the first thirty (30) days of service. No refunds are available for one year listings on your second or subsequent listings. Please take this into account prior to adding additional yearly listings or upon renewal of your yearly listing. Refunds do not apply to timeshare units OR in cases where the property is offered for rent less than 6 months of the year. If you are dissatisfied with your initial annual subscription (one year listing) for ANY REASON during the first thirty (30) days of service, we will cancel your listing and send you a full refund, less a $50 service charge.
To request a refund, please send your request to admin@SportsStay.com and include your listing number, and your reason for dissatisfaction.
Upon renewal of your yearly listing, such listing will remain online for one full year without refund. For information about selling your property or taking it off the market, please see the DISCLAIMER page.
Monthly Subscriptions. All listings are sold to run the full term that is chosen by the member. Monthly subscriptions (one month ) can be cancelled at any time. Canceling a listing will not disable the listing. Upon cancellation, a listing will continue to run through the end of the term in which it was cancelled. When a listing is disabled it is no longer visible on the site. No refunds or extensions of time are available for disabled or cancelled monthly (one month) listings.

If we become aware of or receive a complaint from any person or entity regarding a member's listing or rental practices that, in our sole discretion, warrants the immediate removal of such member's allegedly offensive listing from the Site (for example, and without limitation, if a member double-books a property for multiple travelers on the same date, or engages in any practice that, in our sole discretion, would be considered unfair within the vacation rental industry, or if we receive a complaint that any listing's content infringes on the rights of a third party), then we may immediately remove the allegedly offensive listing from the Site without notice to the member and without refund while we investigate the basis for the complaint. If we conclude, in our sole discretion, that any such complaint is meritorious, then we may permanently remove the offensive listing from the site without notice to the member and without refund.

General. Payment for monthly subscriptions (one month) must be made in U.S. Dollars paid either by major credit card or debit card.

We do not store your credit card information on our servers, and we do not keep credit card numbers on any server in any file or database, rather, we will recall your credit card information from our payment provider when and if needed for any auto-renewal of your subscription.
Automatic Renewal. As of September 2009, for any subscription paid for via credit card, such subscription shall automatically renew at the expiration of the then-current term for an additional term of the same duration as the initial term and at the then-current non-promotional subscription rate. This automatic renewal feature allows your service to remain uninterrupted at the expiration of your then-current term. If you do not wish for your subscription to be automatically renewed, you must manually cancel your subscription in your Owner Dashboard at any time prior to expiration of the then- current term. Upon any such manual cancellation, your subscription will remain active through the expiration of your then-current subscription term; however your subscription will not be automatically renewed upon the expiration of your then-current term. If your subscription is cancelled at the end of your then-current subscription term for any reason and you thereafter desire to renew your subscription, you will be required to pay the then-current non-promotional subscription rate to activate a new subscription. If you do not cancel your subscription or if you continue to use our subscription service, you re-affirm and authorize us to charge your credit card at the end of each subscription term for an additional term of the same duration as the initial term and at the then-current non-promotional subscription rate. You agree to be responsible for any such charges, and we reserve the right to obtain payment directly from you if necessary. For annual (one year listings) subscriptions, we will notify you of the pending renewal of your subscription at least fifteen (15) days prior to the date your subscription renews, except as otherwise required by law. You must cancel your subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of subscription fees for the renewal term to your credit card.

If the FULFILLER discovers an item's correct price is higher than the stated price, the FULFILLER will either complete the order at the original price, contact USER to inform them of different price with an option to purchase, or cancel USER's order and notify USER of such cancellation.
Taxes. Prices stated on the SITE do not include any state or other local taxes that may apply to USER's order. TICKET SELLERS may collect sales tax as is appropriate for their locality.
Credit Card Charges. USER's credit card will be charged by the FULFILLER responsible for fulfilling their order and not SITE. If USER have any questions about charges on User credit card statement, feel free to contact us at email@example.com or to direct User question to FULFILLER responsible for completing the ticket order. FULFILLER may charge or authorize USERíS credit card in advance of confirming ticket availability. If tickets are ultimately found to be unavailable, the USERíS credit card will not be charged or USER will receive a full refund for the charged amount.
Event Listings. SITE does not guarantee the accuracy of event information on SITE including but not limited to event name, event location or venue, event start time, or event date.
Ticket Holder Behavior Policy. The USER agrees to abide by all rules and policies of the venue where the event is located relating to conduct and behavior. Should the USER be ejected from the event for failure to abide by the venueís rules and policies, USER shall be subject to all applicable fines and legal or other expenses associated with the ejection. Further, should the ejection result in the loss of the TICKET SELLERís right to use any other season tickets at that venue, or the right to purchase other tickets from that venue, USER shall be held liable for all reasonable costs, expenses, and losses associated with said loss, including but not limited to all direct, indirect, vicarious, consequential, exemplary, incidental, special or punitive damages, including lost profits.
Ticket Availability. SITE cannot guarantee ticket availability until the USER is in possession of their tickets. Generally, all ticket listings on SITE are a unique set of tickets from an individual TICKET SELLER. Some ticket listings on SITE may only be representations of available tickets and not actual seat locations or currently available tickets. Occasionally tickets ordered may no longer be available at the price or in the quantity originally ordered at the time the order is received. If equivalent or better seat locations are available at the same price, the TICKET SELLER will fill the order with the alternative seat locations. If no alternates are available, either the USERíS credit card will not be charged at all or the entire amount will be refunded, and USER will be notified that the ticket request has been rejected.
Fraudulent Use. In order to protect our USERs from fraud, a USER may be required to provide additional proof of identify on any order. Proof of identity may include but is not limited to a signed credit card authorization and/or photocopies of public documents such as a state driver's license or federal passport.
Shipping. All orders are shipped to USER using the delivery method chosen for the order. All shipments are to the billing address of USERS credit card (no exceptions). Most orders are shipped the same business day in which they are received. Orders placed after business hours may be shipped on the next business day. Shipments may require direct signature at the point of delivery.
Delayed Shipment. For certain events including but not limited to the following: all off-season orders for professional sporting leagues, concerts, and Las Vegas events tickets may not be available for immediate shipment. In these situations tickets may be marked with an estimated ship date. USER will be provided with account access information that will allow them to view the status of their order and tracking information, if available, after purchase. In the case where tracking information is not available USER may contact a representative of the FULFILLER for shipment information or an estimated delivery date. Tickets will be shipped when available, and choice of an expedited delivery method does not guarantee that tickets will be shipped immediately.
International Shipping. Customers outside of the United States must choose an International Delivery option. If a domestic shipping option is chosen for an order to be shipped outside the United States, the shipping cost will be adjusted by the FULILLER after the order is placed to use the International Rate.
Delivery Verification. If USER specifies a shipping address that does not allow for Delivery Verification, such as a Post Office Box, USER may be required to pay an additional fee to cover the additional risks associated with this type of order. If such a shipping address is used, the FULFILLER will, at their discretion, either contact USER about the additional fee prior to shipping or cancel User order and notify USER of such cancellation.
