It is important that the guest assumes and understands that the existence of incidents is inherent to the own use of the property and in some occasions their appearance is impossible to foresee (example: problems with septic tank, problems with boilers, broken faucets , electrical failures, etc.) and in some cases they may be beyond our control (example: general blackouts, construction works in the neighborhood, noise from neighbors or animals, existence of insects, etc.).

The HOMEFORGUEST team is at your disposal during the entire period of your stay to resolve all issues and help you enjoy a happy stay.

11.- EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY. HOMEFORGUEST will not assume any responsibility for possible modifications that affect the accommodation or its surroundings not directly controllable by HOMEFORGUEST. The occupant acknowledges that he or she can not claim any penalty for any of the following anomalies provided that they could not be expected or prevented by HOMEFORGUEST:

  • Construction works: The accommodations are usually private properties of different individual owners and are usually located in large residential areas. They are not usually found in tourist complexes, therefore, although it is unlikely, it could potentially occur that unexpected construction works take place in the surroundings. These works are usually carried out by owners, contractors or government organizations with whom we have no relationship and therefore we have no influence on these actions. In consequence, the guest assumes when making the reservation of the villa that neither HOMEFORGUEST nor the owner of the villa have any responsibility regarding the inconvenience caused by the works that are not carried out on behalf of HOMEFORGUEST.
  • Satellite / cable television: If satellite or cable television is indicated in the description, this does not automatically mean that you can watch all the programs you want. The owners of the houses, mostly foreigners, use decoders that do not always capture all the international channels.
  • Water, electricity and Internet: The cuts of the water supply, electricity and Internet are not common, however, the municipal and / or regional authorities, for different reasons, may agree to temporarily cut or limit the distribution. Under no circumstances may HOMEFORGUEST be held responsible for any inconvenience or damage caused.

12.- DATA PROTECTION. The personal data provided by the guest in the contact form and / or reservation form, will be incorporated into a file whose ownership corresponds to HOMEFORGUEST. The purpose of collecting and processing them is the administrative management of the service requested, the maintenance

of the established business relationships, as well as keeping you informed of new services and offers. In compliance with current regulations, HOMEFORGUEST guarantees that it has adopted the necessary measures and techniques to maintain the required level of security in accordance with the nature of the personal data processed. Likewise, we inform you that you can exercise your rights of access, rectification, cancellation and opposition, with respect to your personal data, by sending a letter, accompanied by your ID, to the address indicated in the booking voucher. HOMEFORGUEST will not assign or communicate the data stored in its files to third parties, except in those cases in which such communication is authorized by the user, required by current legislation or if necessary for the provision of the requested service.

13.- NON-COMPLIANCE WITH THE GENERAL CONDITIONS. In case of non-compliance of some of the general conditions contained in this document, HOMEFORGUEST reserves the right to cancel the rental contract with immediate effect and without prior notice, which may result in the immediate expulsion of the guest from the dwelling, the total loss of the deposit and the rental amount.

14.- APPLICABLE LEGISLATION AND JURISDICTION. For any particular matter not provided in these conditions, will be applicable, in any case, the Spanish legislation, as well as regional regulations.
