Information about us
Our site is operated by Saiban International, trading as thefanar.com ("we", "us", "our"). And we have our registered office at The Fanar Ltd. Office 73 30 Woburn Place London WC1H 0JR.
We are an advertising service for Advertisers and an accommodation search facility for Holidaymakers. We do not own, inspect or provide content for any of the properties advertised on our site. The one qualification is our special photography service for Advertisers. Where you see photographs or videos displaying the words 'Visited by TheFanar.com', these have been taken by photographers working for or in conjunction with us, as a result of the Advertiser commissioning such service from us. However, although we may provide the photograph or video, we do not warrant that we have conducted any inspection of the property. Advertiser shall be responsible for ensuring that it has all necessary rights, licences and authorisations to rent property.
Except in relation to adverts allowing online booking where we may act as an agent in order to facilitate payments to enable transactions between Advertiser and Holidaymaker, we have absolutely no involvement in the booking process or transaction. We make no claims as to the quality, safety or legality of any of the properties advertised. Neither can we confirm the accuracy of the advertisements or their content. It is the sole responsibility of the Advertiser to be eligible to rent the property and the sole responsibility of the Holidaymaker to pay for the rental.
Material on our site
All copyright, database rights, trade marks and design rights in our site and in the material published on it belong to us, our licensors or our Advertisers.
You may download material from our site for the sole purpose of using our site, but you must not copy, transmit, modify, republish, save, pass off or link to any content or material on our site without our prior written consent.
You may forward material from our site to third parties by using the 'Send to Friend' tool. By using this tool you confirm that you have obtained prior consent to receiving material from our site from any third parties to whom you send material.
Advertisers, Holidaymakers or any other person shall not use our site for any marketing or advertising purposes which are not permitted by us. Any such use of our site shall, in our discretion, result in us refusing to list any property and/or discontinuing the ability of the person infringing this provision from using our site.
Consideration should always be given to the nature of advertisements and contracts transacted on the Internet, and the risks involved. Direct contact between Advertisers and Holidaymakers in relation to a booking may not occur and so you must therefore proceed with care and judgement when using our site.
Any contract for the rental of any property listed on our site is directly between an Advertiser and a Holidaymaker (each a "Booking Contract") and we are not a party to that contract.
In recognition of this, you acknowledge that any claim you may have that is in any way connected with a dispute you have with an Advertiser on our site must be brought directly against that Advertiser and not against us.
We may provide an online payment platform, giving you the ability to make online payments to Advertisers via PayPal, credit card, debit card or other payment options. We may change or withdraw such platform at any time without notice in our sole discretion.
Although we may provide the technical platform to enable such payments, we are not responsible for the payment solutions themselves and we still are not a party to the contract between you and the Advertiser. In particular, we are not responsible for any decision taken by PayPal or another provider to decline your payment, based on its risk assessment of you or that transaction. You shall not hold us liable for any losses you suffer as a result of making an online payment to an Advertiser. If you need customer support in relation to an online payment, you should contact PayPal or your bank or credit card provider (as applicable).
You agree to indemnify and keep us indemnified from and against any and all claims, actions, proceedings, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses (including legal fees) suffered or incurred by us arising out of or in connection with your use of our online payment platform to make payments to Advertisers, in particular any claims from Advertisers, PayPal or other payment solution providers resulting from your actions or omissions.
Our limitation of liability and responsibility
We act merely as an advertising service through which Advertisers can advertise properties to Holidaymakers. We do not own nor have we inspected nor do we have any control whatsoever over any property listed on our site and we make no representations or warranties regarding any of the properties.
While we require Advertisers to advertise properties truthfully, fairly and accurately, and we take reasonable steps to remove advertisements from our site following any complaint from a Holidaymaker or another Advertiser, we have no control over the accuracy of any advertisement or the capacity of any Advertiser to make a booking with a Holidaymaker.
As such, we disclaim all liability and responsibility for any loss or damage (including personal injury) suffered or incurred by you or another party arising from:
a. any reliance by any user of our site, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents, placed on any advertisement, commentary and other materials posted on our site by Advertisers, or any error or mistake or inaccuracy contained in any statement, description, representation or other information made about or in connection with a property listed on our site;
b. the act or omission of the Advertiser or any failure of the Advertiser to perform or comply with any of the terms of the contract between the Advertiser and you, including a failure to provide the property on the requested date (whether due to a double-booking or otherwise), or a failure to provide the property in the condition or with the amenities that such property was advertised on our site;
c. any loss of or damage to personal possessions at a property; or
d. any incident or occurrence which takes place at a property.
Although we will do our best to prevent intentional misuse of our site and the dissemination of harmful programs via our site, we will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by any intentional misuse of our site or the distribution of viruses or other technologically harmful material that may infect your computer equipment, computer programs, data or other proprietary material due to your use of our site.
If we are in breach of these terms or otherwise liable to you (including, without limitation, for our negligence), we will only be responsible for any direct damages or losses you incur that result from your use of our site up to the value of the fees (if any) that you have paid to us. We shall not be liable for any indirect losses or damages suffered by you. Our liability to you shall not in any event include business losses (which includes without limitation loss or corruption of data, loss of profits or contracts, loss of revenue, loss of anticipated savings in expenditure, or business interruption) as a result of our breach of contract or negligence or otherwise.
This does not affect our liability for fraudulent misrepresentation or if something we do negligently causes death or personal injury, nor any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.

Repeat Infringer Policy
In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") and other applicable law, we have adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at our sole discretion Advertisers or Holidaymakers access to our site who are deemed to be repeat infringers. We may also at our sole discretion limit access to our site and/or terminate the accounts of any users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
Interruptions in our service
Whilst we take every care to maintain the continuity of our site, the Internet is not always a stable medium, and errors, omissions, interruptions of service and delays may occur at any time. As a result, we do not accept any on-going obligation or responsibility to operate our site or any particular part of it.

Where our site contains links to other sites and resources provided by third parties, these links are provided for your information only. We have no control over the contents of those sites or resources, and accept no responsibility for them or for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of them.
For the avoidance of doubt, Saiban International never acts as a principal in connection with any of the transactions or services available on or through our site.

· Multiple properties
That a property advertisement on our site pertains to one holiday home, not multiple homes, nor an example of properties in a certain region. Only one self-contained holiday home should be represented in an advertisement unless prior permission has been given by us. We reserve the right to amend any property adverts not adhering to this policy.
· Co-located holiday homes and adverts
Co-located homes are classed as a set of properties available for holiday rental that are on the same site or complex, advertised by the same TheFanar.com Advertiser and can be rented individually or in combination. You can advertise between two and five co-located homes using a set of Co-located Adverts. A further advert can be added to your set to showcase the option of renting the homes in combination, this is known as a Group Advert. Within the set each home must have its own advertisement page.
· Exchanging properties
A property advertisement on our site relates to a specific property, and this property must not be substituted for another by way of changes to the text and photographs unless prior permission has been given to the Advertiser. If an Advertiser is found to have changed the property being described, we reserve the right to suspend the advert in question.
· Availability calendar accuracy
It is a requirement of your advertising contract with us that your availability calendar accurately reflects the availability for the advertised property at the time the calendar is updated. Misrepresentation of availability of the advertised property is misleading to site users. We reserve the right to withdraw the calendar facility or terminate the advertisements concerned, without refund, where we believe calendars to be misleading.
· Availability calendar updating
In line with the above paragraph, we recommend that calendars are updated on a weekly basis. However, our minimum requirement is that calendars are updated at least once a month. This includes confirming if there have been no changes in that period. Failure to provide the minimum frequency of updates will affect advert performance and the user search experience. We reserve the right to withdraw the calendar facility from adverts where availability is considerably out of date. Adverts that repeatedly fail to meet this minimum requirement could be terminated without refund.
· Rental rates table accuracy and updating
It is a requirement of your advertising contract with us that your rental rates table accurately reflects the available and current prices for the advertised property. Rental rates should be based on the price per week (seven nights); nightly rates for midweek and weekends can be entered separately in the column provided. Rental rates must be representative of your maximum occupancy; up to two additional rental rates tables can be included to reflect rates for smaller group sizes. We recommend that you have a minimum of six months' data in your rental rates tables in order to facilitate advance holidaymaker searches.
We reserve the right to request accurate updating of rental rates tables from advertisers. Failure to act on such requests, continued failure to accurately reflect available pricing, or sustained complaints from holidaymakers about misleading advertised pricing will result in termination of advertising, without refund.
· Termination of an advertisement
o If we receive substantiated complaints from any number of site users about a specific advertisement misrepresenting the property, or its surroundings, or the inappropriate behaviour of an Advertiser, then we reserve the right to remove the advertisement without notice, and retain payment;
o If an Advertiser attempts to enter unsuitable material into the online database, or persistently misuses the online systems, we reserve the right to remove the associated advertisement from our site. Full payment will be retained;
o We reserve the right to refuse or remove any advertisement from our site that we consider unsuitable, incomplete or misleading, or which we consider to contain Inappropriate Content, and will not be liable for any expense in so doing;
o We reserve the right to refuse any advertisement from our site where the content fails to meet our minimum requirements;
o If an Advertiser wishes to have their advertisement removed from our site before the end of their subscription, this will be done as soon as we receive formal notice from the Advertiser by email or using the 'Contact Us' page, quoting their Advertiser ID or home number. No refunds will be given;
o If an Advertiser is in breach of these terms we may remove the advertisement from our site without notice and without refund.
In the interest of maintaining a high level of service to Holidaymakers using our site, we require all Advertisers to be available to respond to enquiries by telephone or email. Should Advertisers be unavailable for a period of more than 1 week, we ask them to leave an answerphone message to that effect or to set up an out of office response on their email account. If neither of these options is viable, we ask that Advertisers contact us so we can temporarily suspend their advert. We reserve the right to suspend adverts of Advertisers who are unreachable for more than one week. In this instance we will send messages by telephone and email asking for the Advertiser to request re-activation upon their return.
· Guestbooks and reviews
All entries in the guestbook must be genuine comments from your guests. We reserve the right to request the email address of the guests whose comments are included for the purposes of verification. Should we decide to include guest reviews on the website, the same rules will apply.
· External links
We reserve the right to remove from advertisements both email addresses and links to external websites which either do not conform to the guidelines provided, or which we feel are not appropriate, or act against the interests of us or our Advertisers. The ultimate responsibility and authority for determining the aforementioned rests solely with us. Should an Advertiser add a link or email address without consent, re-add a link or email address after its removal or remove reciprocated links from their website, we reserve the right to cancel their advertising without refund.
