1. Scope of Navisyo Services
1.1 The Scope of the Navisyo Services is to connect Boat Owners and Individuals looking to experience a boat, for various reasons, around the world with the touch of a button. The Navisyo Platform is an online marketplace that enables registered users ("Members") and certain third parties who offer services (Members and third parties who offer services are "Hosts / Boat Owners"and the services they offer are "Host Services" to publish such Host Services on the Navisyo Platform ("Offers") and to communicate and transact directly with Members that are seeking to book such Host Services (Members using Host Services are "Guests / Travelers"). Host Services may include the offering of overnight stays aboard their boat for use as ("Floatels"), single or multi-day activities in various categories such as but not limited to ("Voyages"), ("Events"), and a variety of other travel and non-travel related services.
1.2 As the provider of the Navisyo Platform, Navisyo does not own, create, sell, resell, provide, control, manage, offer, deliver, or supply any Boat Offers or Host Services, nor is Navisyo an organizer or retailer of travel packages under Directive (EU) 2015/2302. Hosts alone are responsible for their Boat Offers and Host Services. When Members make or accept a booking, they are entering into a contract directly with each other. Navisyo is not and does not become a party to or other participant in any contractual relationship between Members, nor is Navisyo a broker or insurer. Navisyo is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Member, except as specified in the Payments Terms.
1.3 While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, Navisyo has no control over and does not guarantee (i) the existence, quality, safety, suitability, or legality of any Boat Offers or Host Services, (ii) the truth or accuracy of any Boat Offer descriptions, Ratings, Reviews, or other Member Content (as defined below), or (iii) the performance or conduct of any Member or third party. Navisyo does not endorse any Member, Boat Offer or Host Services. Any references to a Member being "verified" (or similar language) only indicate that the Member has completed a relevant verification or identification process and nothing else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Navisyo about any Member, including of the Member's identity or background or whether the Member is trustworthy, safe or suitable. You should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to stay in an Accommodation, participate in an Experience or Event or use other Host Services, accept a booking request from a Guest, or communicate and interact with other Members, whether online or in person. Verified Images (as defined below) are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of a Boat Offer at the time the photograph was taken, and are therefore not an endorsement by Navisyo of any Host or Boat Offer.
1.4 If you choose to use the Navisyo Platform as a Host or Co-Host (as defined below), your relationship with Navisyo is limited to being an independent, third-party contractor, and not an employee, agent, joint venturer or partner of Navisyo for any reason, and you act exclusively on your own behalf and for your own benefit, and not on behalf, or for the benefit, of Navisyo. Navisyo does not, and shall not be deemed to, direct or control you generally or in your performance under these Terms specifically, including in connection with your provision of the Host Services. You acknowledge and agree that you have complete discretion whether to list Host Services or otherwise engage in other business or employment activities.
1.5 To promote the Navisyo Platform and to increase the exposure of Boat Offers to potential Guests, Boat Offers and other Member Content may be displayed on other websites, in applications, within emails, and in online and offline advertisements. To assist Members who speak different languages, Boat Offers and other Member Content may be translated, in whole or in part, into other languages. Navisyo cannot guarantee the accuracy or quality of such translations and Members are responsible for reviewing and verifying the accuracy of such translations. The Navisyo Platform may contain translations powered by Google. Google disclaims all warranties related to the translations, express or implied, including any warranties of accuracy, reliability, and any implied warranties for merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.

Such Third-Party Services may be subject to different terms and conditions and privacy practices. Navisyo is not responsible or liable for the availability or accuracy of such Third-Party Services, or the content, products, or services available from such Third-Party Services. Links to such Third-Party Services are not an endorsement by Navisyo of such Third-Party Services.
1.7 Due to the nature of the Internet, Navisyo cannot guarantee the continuous and uninterrupted availability and accessibility of the Navisyo Platform. Navisyo may restrict the availability of the Navisyo Platform or certain areas or features thereof, if this is necessary in view of capacity limits, the security or integrity of our servers, or to carry out maintenance measures that ensure the proper or improved functioning of the Navisyo Platform.

This may be for reasons set forth in Navisyo's Extenuating Circumstances Policy or (i) where Navisyo believes in good faith, while taking the legitimate interests of both parties into account, this is necessary to avoid significant harm to Navisyo, other Members, third parties or property, or (ii) for any of the reasons set out in these Terms.
9.6 If a Guest who books an Accommodation suffers a Travel Issue as defined in the Guest Refund Policy, Navisyo may determine, in its sole discretion, to refund the Guest part or all of the Total Fees in accordance with the Guest Refund Policy. If a Guest who books an Experience, Event or other Host Service suffers a Travel Issue as defined in the Experiences Guest Refund Policy, Navisyo may determine, in its sole discretion, to refund the Guest part or all of the Total Fees in accordance with the Experiences Guest Refund Policy.
9.7 If a Guest or Navisyo cancels a confirmed booking, and the Guest receives a refund in accordance with the Guest Refund Policy, Experiences Guest Refund Policy, Extenuating Circumstances Policy, or the applicable cancellation policy set by the Host and mentioned in the Boat Offer, after the Host has already been paid, Navisyo Payments will be entitled to recover the amount of any such refund from the Host, including by subtracting such refund amount out from any future Payouts due to the Host.
9.8 Except as otherwise set out in these Terms, Members may use the Resolution Center to send or request money for refunds, additional Host Services or Damage Claims related to bookings. You agree to pay all amounts sent through the Resolution Center in connection with your Navisyo Account, and Navisyo Payments will handle all such payments.
10. Ratings and Reviews
10.1 Within a certain timeframe after completing a booking, Guests and Hosts can leave a public review ("Review") and submit a star rating ("Rating") about each other. Ratings or Reviews reflect the opinions of individual Members and do not reflect the opinion of Navisyo. Ratings and Reviews are not verified by Navisyo for accuracy and may be incorrect or misleading.
10.2 Ratings and Reviews by Guests and Hosts must be accurate and may not contain any offensive or defamatory language. Ratings and Reviews are subject to Section 5 and must comply with Navisyo’s Content Policy and Extortion Policy.
10.3 Members are prohibited from manipulating the Ratings and Reviews system in any manner, such as instructing a third party to write a positive or negative Review about another Member.
10.4 Ratings and Reviews are part of a Member’s public profile and may also be surfaced elsewhere on the Navisyo Platform (such as the Boat Offer page) together with other relevant information such as number of bookings, number of cancellations, average response time and other information.
11. Damage to Accommodations, Disputes between Members
11.1 As a Guest, you are responsible for leaving the Accommodation (including any personal or other property located at the Accommodation) in the condition it was in when you arrived. You are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of any individuals whom you invite to, or otherwise provide access to, the Accommodation, excluding the Host (and the individuals the Host invites to the Accommodation, if applicable).
11.2 If a Host claims and provides evidence that you as a Guest have damaged an Accommodation or any personal or other property at an Accommodation ("Damage Claim"), the Host can seek payment from you through the Resolution Center. If a Host escalates a Damage Claim to Navisyo, you will be given an opportunity to respond. If you agree to pay the Host, or Navisyo determines in its sole discretion that you are responsible for the Damage Claim, Navisyo via Navisyo Payments will, after the end of your stay, collect any such sums from you and/or against the Security Deposit (if applicable) required to cover the Damage Claim pursuant to the Payments Terms. Navisyo also reserves the right to otherwise collect payment from you and pursue any remedies available to Navisyo in this regard in situations in which you are responsible for a Damage Claim, including, but not limited to, in relation to any payment requests made by Hosts under the Navisyo Host Guarantee.
11.3 Members agree to cooperate with and assist Navisyo in good faith, and to provide Navisyo with such information and take such actions as may be reasonably requested by Navisyo, in connection with any Damage Claims or other complaints or claims made by Members relating to (i) Accommodations or any personal or other property located at an Accommodation, (ii) Experiences, (iii) Co-Host agreements, or (iv) a Group Payment Booking. A Member shall, upon Navisyo's reasonable request and at no cost to the Member, participate in mediation or a similar resolution process with another Member, which process will be conducted by Navisyo or a third party selected by Navisyo or its insurer, with respect to losses for which a Member is requesting payment from Navisyo.
11.4 If you are a Guest or a Co-Host, you understand and agree that Navisyo may make a claim under your homeowner's, renter's or other insurance policy related to any damage or loss that you may have caused, or been responsible for, to any personal or other property (including an Accommodation) of the Host. You agree to cooperate with and assist Navisyo in good faith, and to provide Navisyo with such information as may be reasonably requested by Navisyo, to make a claim under your homeowner's, renter's or other insurance policy, including, but not limited to, executing documents and taking such further acts as Navisyo may reasonably request to assist Navisyo in accomplishing the foregoing.
12. Rounding Off, Currency Conversion
Navisyo generally, supports payment amounts that are payable from or to Guests or Hosts to the smallest unit supported by a given currency (i.e., U.S. cents, Euro cents or other supported currencies). Where Navisyo’s third-party payment services provider does not support payments in the smaller unit supported by a given currency, Navisyo may, in its sole discretion, round up or round down the displayed amounts that are payable from or to Guests or Hosts to the nearest whole functional base unit in which the currency is denominated (i.e. to the nearest dollar, Euro or other supported currency); for example, Navisyo may round up an amount of $101.50 to $102.00, and round down an amount of $101.49 to $101.00.
13.1 As a Host you are solely responsible for determining your obligations to report, collect, remit or include in your Boat Offer Fees any applicable VAT or other indirect sales taxes, occupancy tax, tourist or other visitor taxes or income taxes ("Taxes").

15.8 Sections 5 and 16 to 22 of these Terms shall survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement
If you choose to use the Navisyo Platform or Collective Content, you do so voluntarily and at your sole risk. The Navisyo Platform and Collective Content is provided "as is", without warranty of any kind, either express or implied.
You agree that you have had whatever opportunity you deem necessary to investigate the Navisyo Services, laws, rules, or regulations that may be applicable to your Boat Offers and/or Host Services you are receiving and that you are not relying upon any statement of law or fact made by Navisyo relating to a Boat Offer.
If we choose to conduct identity verification or background checks on any Member, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we disclaim warranties of any kind, either express or implied, that such checks will identify prior misconduct by a Member or guarantee that a Member will not engage in misconduct in the future.
You agree that some Experiences, Events, other Host Services, or the Group Payment Service may carry inherent risk, and by participating in such services, you choose to assume those risks voluntarily. For example, some Host Services may carry risk of illness, bodily injury, disability, or death, and you freely and willfully assume those risks by choosing to participate in those Host Services. You assume full responsibility for the choices you make before, during and after your participation in a Host Service or the Group Payment Service. If you are bringing a minor as an additional guest, you are solely responsible for the supervision of that minor throughout the duration of your Host Service and to the maximum extent permitted by law, you agree to release and hold harmless Navisyo from all liabilities and claims that arise in any way from any injury, death, loss or harm that occurs to that minor during the Host Service or in any way related to your Host Service.
The foregoing disclaimers apply to the maximum extent permitted by law. You may have other statutory rights. However, the duration of statutorily required warranties, if any, shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
You acknowledge and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by law, the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the Navisyo Platform and Collective Content, your publishing or booking of any Boat Offer via the Navisyo Platform, your stay at any Boat offers participation in any Experience or Event or use of any other Host Service, participation in the Group Payment Service, or any other interaction you have with other Members whether in person or online remains with you. Neither Navisyo nor any other party involved in creating, producing, or delivering the Navisyo Platform or Collective Content will be liable for any incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages, including lost profits, loss of data or loss of goodwill, service interruption, computer damage or system failure or the cost of substitute products or services, or for any damages for personal or bodily injury or emotional distress arising out of or in connection with (i) these Terms, (ii) from the use of or inability to use the Navisyo Platform or Collective Content, (iii) from any communications, interactions or meetings with other Members or other persons with whom you communicate, interact or meet with as a result of your use of the Navisyo Platform, or (iv) from your publishing or booking of a Boat Offer, including the provision or use of a Boat Offer’s Host Services, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), product liability or any other legal theory, and whether or not Navisyo has been informed of the possibility of such damage, even if a limited remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose. Except for our obligations to pay amounts to applicable Hosts pursuant to these Terms. In no event will Navisyo’s aggregate liability arising out of or in connection with these Terms and your use of the Navisyo Platform including, but not limited to, from your publishing or booking of any Boat Offers via the Navisyo Platform, or from the use of or inability to use the Navisyo Platform or Collective Content and in connection with any Accommodation, Experiences, Event, other Host Service, the Group Payment Service, or interactions with any other Members, exceed the amounts you have paid or owe for bookings via the Navisyo Platform as a Guest in the twelve (12) month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or if you are a Host, the amounts paid by Navisyo to you in the twelve (12) month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or one hundred U.S. dollars (US$100), if no such payments have been made, as applicable. The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between Navisyo and you. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you. If you reside outside of the U.S., this does not affect Navisyo’s liability for death or personal injury arising from its negligence, nor for fraudulent misrepresentation, misrepresentation as to a fundamental matter or any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to release, defend (at Navisyo’s option), indemnify, and hold Navisyo and its affiliates and subsidiaries, including but not limited to, Navisyo Payments, and their officers, directors, employees and agents, harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected with (i) your breach of these Terms or our Policies or Standards, (ii) your improper use of the Navisyo Platform or any Navisyo Services, (iii) your interaction with any Member, stay at an Accommodation, participation in an Experience, Event or other Host Service, participation in the Group Payment Service, including without limitation any injuries, losses or damages (whether compensatory, direct, incidental, consequential or otherwise) of any kind arising in connection with or as a result of such interaction, stay, participation or use, (iv) Navisyo’s Collection and Remittance of Occupancy Taxes, or (v) your breach of any laws, regulations or third party rights.
19. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement
19.1 This Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement shall apply if your (i) country of residence or establishment is in the United States; or (ii) your country of residence or establishment is not in the United States, but bring any claim against Navisyo in the United States (to the extent not in conflict with Section 21).
19.2 Overview of Dispute Resolution Process. Navisyo is committed to participating in a consumer-friendly dispute resolution process. To that end, these Terms provide for a two-part process for individuals to whom Section 19.1 applies: (1) an informal negotiation directly with Navisyo’s customer service team, and (2) a binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") using its specially designed Consumer Arbitration Rules (as modified by this Section 19 and except as provided in Section 19.6). Specifically, the Consumer Arbitration Rules provide:
- Claims can be filed with AAA online (www.adr.org);
- Arbitrators must be neutral and no party may unilaterally select an arbitrator;
- Arbitrators must disclose any bias, interest in the result of the arbitration, or relationship with any party;
- Parties retain the right to seek relief in small claims court for certain claims, at their option;
- The initial filing fee for the consumer is capped at $200;
- The consumer gets to elect the hearing location and can elect to participate live, by phone, video conference, or, for claims under $25,000, by the submission of documents;
- The arbitrator can grant any remedy that the parties could have received in court to resolve the party’s individual claim.
19.3 Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution and Notification. Prior to initiating an arbitration, you and Navisyo each agree to notify the other party of the dispute and attempt to negotiate an informal resolution to it first. We will contact you at the email address you have provided to us; you can contact Navisyo’s customer service team by emailing us. If after a good faith effort to negotiate one of us feels the dispute has not and cannot be resolved informally, the party intending to pursue arbitration agrees to notify the other party via email prior to initiating the arbitration. In order to initiate arbitration, a claim must be filed with the AAA and the written Demand for Arbitration (available at www.adr.org) provided to the other party, as specified in the AAA Rules.
19.4 Agreement to Arbitrate. You and Navisyo mutually agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the applicability, breach, termination, validity, enforcement or interpretation thereof, or to the use of the Navisyo Platform, the Host Services, the Group Payment Service, or the Collective Content (collectively, "Disputes") will be settled by binding individual arbitration (the "Arbitration Agreement"). If there is a dispute about whether this Arbitration Agreement can be enforced or applies to our Dispute, you and Navisyo agree that the arbitrator will decide that issue.
19.5 Exceptions to Arbitration Agreement. You and Navisyo each agree that the following claims are exceptions to the Arbitration Agreement and will be brought in a judicial proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction: (i) Any claim related to actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights; (ii) Any claim seeking emergency injunctive relief based on exigent circumstances (e.g., imminent danger or commission of a crime, hacking, cyber-attack).
19.6 Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. This Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. The arbitration will be administered by AAA in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules and/or other AAA arbitration rules determined to be applicable by the AAA (the "AAA Rules") then in effect, except as modified here. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1–800–778–7879.
19.7 Modification to AAA Rules - Arbitration Hearing/Location. In order to make the arbitration most convenient to you, Navisyo agrees that any required arbitration hearing may be conducted, at your option, (a) in the county where you reside; (b) in Broward County; (c) in any other location to which you and Navisyo both agree; (d) via phone or video conference; or (e) for any claim or counterclaim under $25,000, by solely the submission of documents to the arbitrator.
19.8 Modification of AAA Rules - Attorney’s Fees and Costs. You and Navisyo agree that Navisyo will be responsible for payment of the balance of any initial filing fee under the AAA Rules in excess of $200 for claims of $75,000 or less. You may be entitled to seek an award of attorney fees and expenses if you prevail in arbitration, to the extent provided under applicable law and the AAA rules. Unless the arbitrator determines that your claim was frivolous or filed for the purpose of harassment, Navisyo agrees it will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law or the AAA Rules, to recover attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
19.9 Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court with proper jurisdiction. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only on an individual basis and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.
19.10 Jury Trial Waiver. You and Navisyo acknowledge and agree that we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury as to all arbitrable Disputes.
19.11 No Class Actions or Representative Proceedings. You and Navisyo acknowledge and agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, we are each waiving the right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action lawsuit, class-wide arbitration, private attorney general action, or any other representative proceeding as to all Disputes. Further, unless you and Navisyo both otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If the "class action lawsuit" waiver or the "class- wide arbitration" waiver in this Section 19.11 is held unenforceable with respect to any Dispute, then the entirety of the Arbitration Agreement will be deemed void with respect to such Dispute and the Dispute must proceed in court. If the "private attorney general action" waiver or the "representative proceeding" waiver in this Section 19.11 is held unenforceable with respect to any Dispute, those waivers may be severed from this Arbitration Agreement and you and Navisyo agree that any private attorney general claims and representative claims in the Dispute will be severed and stayed, pending the resolution of any arbitrable claims in the Dispute in individual arbitration.
19.12 Severability. Except as provided in Section 19.11, in the event that any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed illegal or unenforceable, such provision shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall be given full force and effect.
19.13 Changes. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 3 ("Modification of these Terms"), if Navisyo changes this Section 19 ("Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement") after the date you last accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email) within thirty (30) days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the "Last Updated" date above or in the date of Navisyo’s email to you notifying you of such change. Rejecting a new change, however, does not revoke or alter your prior consent to any earlier agreements to arbitrate any Dispute between you and Navisyo (or your prior consent to any subsequent changes thereto), which will remain in effect and enforceable as to any Dispute between you and Navisyo.
19.14 Survival. Except as provided in Section 19.12 and subject to Section 15.8, this Section 19 will survive any termination of these Terms and will continue to apply even if you stop using the Navisyo Platform or terminate your Navisyo Account.
We welcome and encourage you to provide feedback, comments and suggestions for improvements to the Navisyo Platform ("Feedback"). You may submit Feedback by emailing us, through the "Contact" section of the Navisyo Platform, or by other means of communication. Any Feedback you submit to us will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary to you. By submitting Feedback to us, you grant us a non- exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, sub-licensable, perpetual license to use and publish those ideas and materials for any purpose, without compensation to you.
21. Applicable Law and Jurisdiction
21.1 If your country of residence or establishment is the United States or outside, these Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida and the United States of America, without regard to conflict-of-law provisions. Judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions) that are excluded from the Arbitration Agreement in Section 19 must be brought in state or federal court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, unless we both agree to some other location. You and we both consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in Broward, Florida.
22. General Provisions

22.5 Navisyo’s failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise permitted under law.
22.6 You may not assign, transfer or delegate this Agreement and your rights and obligations hereunder without Navisyo's prior written consent.
