Overview

The Site and Service can be used to facilitate the listing and booking of Accommodations. Listings for such Accommodations are made available via the Site and Service by Hosts. Listings posted by Hosts, ratings and reviews of Hosts and Guests, and the Profile Information (as defined below) of Hosts and Guests, are visible to any eLands User.

eLands Members and Users

When you create an eLands Account, we may set up an eLands Account profile page for you. Your eLands Account profile page will include your first name and last initial. You can select the other items of Personal Information that you wish to be included in your eLands Account profile page – including, but not limited to, a profile picture, a list of the SNS groups to which you belong, a list of any of your SNS friends or connections who are also Members of eLands, connections you have established between your Account and any SNSs, and a biography and links to your Listings, if applicable (together, your "Profile Information"). We will display your Profile Information in your eLands Account profile page publicly via the Site and, with your prior permission, on third party sites. Any information you choose to provide as part of your Profile Information will be publicly visible to all eLands Users and consequently should reflect how much you want other eLands Users to know about you. We recommend that you guard your anonymity and sensitive information and we encourage members to think carefully about what information about themselves they disclose in their profile pages. You can review and revise your Profile Information at any time.

Listings

If you post a Listing, we may publish that Listing publicly via the Site and may enable third parties to publish your Listing on their websites through the use of an HTML "widget". We may also display the geographical location of your Listing in the form of a map so that potential Guests can see the general area and neighbourhood of your Listing, but your actual street address will not be disclosed until you enter into a confirmed transaction with another Member.

If you request to make a booking via the Site and Service, eLands will share the following information about you with the applicable Host: (i) your first and last name, (ii) a link to your eLands Account profile page, (iii) the names of any members of an SNS with whom you are "friends" or associated on the SNS if such individuals are also "friends" or associated with the Host on such SNS, and (iv) an indication that the name that you provided to eLands when you became a Member matches the name that you provided to the SNSs to which you have linked your eLands Account. All of this information enable the Host to decide whether to confirm or reject your booking. When a Host confirms a booking we may share pieces of the Host’s Identify Information, including, but not limited to, full name, phone number, the Accommodation’s address and the Host’s email address, with the applicable Guest selected by the Host and we will share pieces of the Guest’s Identify Information with the Host, including, but not limited to, full name, phone number and email address, so that the Guest and Host may contact one another directly. In no event is a Guest's Billing Information shared with a Host.

Security

eLands is very concerned with safeguarding your information. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Site, you can contact us.

We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored "personal data" (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on the Site in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
