8.   Account: the part of the website that is exclusively accessible to the user by means of his login details.

9.   In writing: written communication, communication by e-mail or any other means of communication which, in view of the state of the art and the prevailing views in society, can be regarded as equivalent to this.

ARTICLE 2. GENERAL PROVISIONS

1.   These general terms and conditions apply to each use of the website and each concluded user agreement.

2.   Before the host can make use of the functionalities offered to him from the website and before the customer can book a sports holiday via the website, registration is required in accordance with the provisions of article 3. Before registration by the user, the text of these general terms and conditions shall be made available to the user in such a way that these general terms and conditions can be stored on the user's computer or mobile device.

3.   Destruction or nullification of one or more of the provisions of these general terms and conditions or the user agreement as such, shall not affect the validity of the other provisions. In such a case, Share The Rush and the user shall be obliged to enter into consultation with each other in order to make a replacement arrangement with regard to the affected clause. In doing so, the purpose and purport of the original provision shall be taken into account as far as possible.

ARTICLE 3. REGISTRATION & CONCLUSION OF THE USER AGREEMENT 

1.   The user agreement is concluded by registering the user on the website. The user is obliged to provide all compulsory information requested during registration in a complete and truthful manner. This also applies to all mandatory data requested under the user's account after the conclusion of the user agreement.

2.   Any offer by Share The Rush to the user to register on the website is without obligation. Share The Rush reserves the right to cancel the user's registration for reasons of its own and not to confirm the user's registration.

3.   In line with the provisions of the previous paragraph, the use of the website and its registration by hosts is intended exclusively for providers of sports-related holidays, i.e. accommodations including sports activities/facilities. The data provided by the host during registration will be checked by Share The Rush for correctness and completeness. It is also checked whether the host is acting in the exercise of a profession or business and, in that context, also offers sports holidays in a manner other than by means of Share The Rush. Share The Rush therefore reserves the right to cancel the host's registration if the host does not comply with the above conditions, without prejudice to the provisions of the previous paragraph.

4.   After completing the registration procedure, the user will receive, without prejudice to the provisions of the previous two paragraphs, an e-mail confirming the registration, at which time the user agreement will be deemed to have been concluded.

5.   The user is obliged to keep his password for access to his account confidential. All actions performed on the user's account are attributed to the registered user.

ARTICLE 4. | THE MAIN FOCUS IS ON THE SHARE THE RUSH AND OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARTIES.

1.   Share The Rush offers sports holidays composed by hosts through its website. Customer bookings are entered into between the respective customer and the host. Share The Rush only plays a mediating role in this respect and handles the payments of customers on behalf of the hosts. For other aspects of bookings, the hosts and customers concerned must communicate with each other, without prejudice to the provisions of Article 14.2 regarding complaints with regard to bookings.

2.   The host must set, for each sports holiday offered, whether the host wishes to be able to reject or confirm a booking made by a customer via the website, or whether a booking made by the customer is immediately final. The first variant is mandatory if the host also offers the holiday in question through other channels than Share The Rush. The host can also set the maximum number of customers per day that can make a booking through the website.

3.   If the host sets up its sports holiday offer in such a way that a customer's booking is not immediately definitive, the host is responsible for processing the customer's booking request as soon as possible by rejecting or confirming it in the appropriate manner.

ARTICLE 5. | NO RIGHT OF DISSOLUTION

The customer is not entitled to terminate the agreement as referred to in Article 6:230o of the Dutch Civil Code because the sports holidays provide for leisure activities and/or the provision of accommodation other than for residential purposes and the agreement provides for a certain time or a certain period of performance. Consequently, article 6:230p of the Dutch Civil Code provides for the exclusion of the right of dissolution.

ARTICLE 6. CANCELLATION OF BOOKINGS BY THE HOST

1.   If the host cancels a customer's confirmed booking, he or she will owe Share The Rush a penalty of €100 (excl. VAT), with the exception of a first cancellation. Share The Rush is entitled to set off fines against future claims of the host on Share The Rush.

2.   If the host cancels a confirmed booking, the customer shall remain liable to Share The Rush for the service costs referred to in article 8.2, regardless of the reason for the host's cancellation.

3.   The refund to the customer of the costs associated with the booking, minus the service costs referred to in the previous paragraph, shall be made by Share The Rush within 14 days after the customer has been informed by Share The Rush of the cancellation by the host. The customer accepts the possibility that the host may cancel a booking without claiming any compensation beyond that mentioned in the first sentence of this paragraph. 

ARTICLE 7. | CANCELLATION OF BOOKINGS BY THE CUSTOMER

1.   Share The Rush allows hosts to choose their own cancellation policy for each sports holiday they offer. Any offer of sports holidays on the website will clearly state the standard cancellation conditions chosen by the host in question. The applicable cancellation conditions can be consulted and form an integral part of the booking. The reimbursement of (prepaid) amounts by the customer depends on the set cancellation conditions. The cancellation policy can be found on the listing page.

2.   Cancellation of a booking by the customer is done through his account, under "Dashboard" > "Your bookings" > "Cancel booking".

3.   The refund to the customer of the costs associated with the booking, minus the cancellation costs in accordance with the applicable cancellation conditions, will be made by Share The Rush within 14 days after the customer's cancellation has been confirmed by Share The Rush.

ARTICLE 8. | PRICES AND PAYMENTS

1.   The host owes Share The Rush a standard commission of 20% on the total amount of the booking for each confirmed and paid booking from a customer. Even if the booking is subsequently cancelled by the customer, this commission is calculated on the total amount of the booking. 

2.   The customer does not owe Share The Rush any commission on the total amount of the booking as a service charge for each confirmed booking. Before the booking is made by the customer, the price of the sports holiday is stated.

3.   The commission referred to in paragraph 1 shall be set off against the host's claims on Share The Rush. The host will be paid per booking by bank transfer after the customer has checked in at the location of the sports holiday, on the understanding that no payment will be made before seven days have elapsed after the customer has made the booking and has paid the costs due in full. The transfer takes place on the bank account number provided by the host under his account to Share The Rush. The time of transfer to the host's bank account depends on the byks involved in the transfer.

4.   Payment by the customer shall be made using one of the payment methods offered by Share The Rush, within the term implicitly or implicitly stated or notified.

5.   If the customer fails to pay on time, the customer's default shall become effective by operation of law. From the day that the customer's default occurs, the customer shall owe statutory interest on the outstanding amount at that time.

6.   All reasonable costs, whether judicial, extrajudicial or enforcement costs, incurred in order to obtain the amounts owed by the client, shall be borne by the client.

ARTICLE 9. SPECIAL PROVISIONS FOR HOSTS

1.   With regard to the sports holidays to be offered by the host, he must provide all the compulsory information requested under his account completely and truthfully, including at least the duration and location of the sports holiday, a description of the facilities of the sports holiday location, as well as the other characteristics of the sports holiday, so that visitors to the website, and in particular customers, can form a good opinion about the offer of the host. The host must make use of truthful photos of the accommodation.

2.   If sports holidays are offered under special conditions, the host should explicitly mention this in his offer as much as possible. Any such terms contrary to the provisions of these general terms and conditions or the user agreement as such shall be null and void.

3.   The host is not allowed to communicate with customers registered with Share The Rush without the intervention of the services of Share The Rush as offered through the website, except in the context of a booking already made through the website between a customer and the host.

4.   The host must immediately remove his offer of sports holidays from the website in the appropriate manner if and insofar as the offer is no longer available.

5.   The host agrees that his offer of sports holidays, together with all the information contained therein, as revealed on the website, may also be disclosed on social media websites by Share The Rush, for the promotion of the host's sports holiday offer, among other things.
