If a Member requests a booking of your Listing and stays at your Listing, any agreement you enter into with such Member is between you and the Member, and RoomZoom is not a party thereto. When you create a Listing, you may also choose to include certain requirements which must be met by the Members who are eligible to request a booking of your Listing, including, but not limited to, requiring Members to have a profile picture or verified phone number, in order to book your Listing. Any Member wishing to book Listings with such requirements must meet these requirements.
If you are a Listing Member, RoomZoom makes certain tools available to you to help you to make informed decisions about which Members you choose to confirm for booking for your Listing. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Listing Member, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals who reside at or are otherwise present at a Residence at your request or invitation, excluding the Member (and the individuals the Member invites to the Residence, if applicable.)
RoomZoom recommends that Listing Members obtain appropriate insurance for their Listings. Please review any insurance policy that you may have for your Listing carefully, and in particular please make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy, including, but not limited to, whether or not your insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of Members (and the individuals the Members invites to the Residence, if applicable) while at your Residence.
As part of the Service, and based on various criteria of information provided to RoomZoom by Members, Listing Members will be "matched" with other Members who are in search of a Residence (collectively, "Matched Members"). These Matched Members may communicate with each other through use of the "messages" feature on the Site and Application. Members can also remove other Members from their Matched Members connections at any time by using the "Remove Match" feature in your RoomZoom account. Where RoomZoom Members have selected the option of adding one or more email addresses to an online form, the message they create in the corresponding template will be sent from RoomZoom to those email addresses on their behalf. These email addresses will be used only for the purpose of sending the email communication to the addressee.

We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the Site and/or Application. RoomZoom stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email. Your friend may contact us to request that we remove this information from our database.
