7. Listings, Listing Conditions, and Rental Listing Prices
Owners or Sellers are responsible for creating their own Listings, and for the for the accuracy and content of their Listings. Owners or Sellers must accurately describe the Listing and all of the Listing contents, so that the Renter, the Buyer, Beazy, insurance companies, law enforcement, or courts can review exactly what a Renter rented or the Buyer purchased. Owners or Sellers must only upload photos that accurately represent the Listing that they are offering to rent to a Renter, or to purchase by a Buyer.
When prompted, Sellers are responsible of setting an accurate Listing condition from predetermined condition categories that are provided by Beazy. Each condition category has a description that Sellers must review and select. Sellers can also provide any specific information about the condition of a Listing in the Listing description. If a Buyer does not agree with the condition category that the Seller selected and/or the condition description that the Seller added, after the Buyer receives their purchased Listing, the Buyer can request to initiate a return to the Seller and a refund from the Seller within the refund period, as determined and provided by Beazy or the Seller.
Owners are responsible of setting a minimum coverage limit or accurate market value for their Listing (hereinafter, “Replacement Value”). The Listing Replacement Value is displayed publicly on the Listing so that a Renter is aware of the Replacement Value prior to placing a rental request. Accordingly, you, as an Owner, agree that a Renter, an insurance company, and/or Beazy does not owe the Owner an amount for the repair or replacement of the Listing in excess of the the Replacement Value that the Owner has set for Listing at the time the Renter submits a rental request for the Listing. Owners may adjust a Listing Replacement Value at any time, except for when a Listing has been requested by a Renter or in an active rental. Beazy will keep track of any adjustments in the Listing Replacement Value.
Beazy reserves the right to change the price of an Owner’s Listing. Beazy does so in order to maintain reasonable rental prices relative to other listing prices, with the intention to increase the likelihood that an Owner will have their Listing rented by a Renter. If an Owner does not agree with a price change, they have the option of closing their listing at any time, refusing to accept a rental request, or contacting Beazy to discuss the issue.
8. Renters, Rental Period, and Renter Liability
The period of time between when the Owner (or the Owner’s Authorized Person) releases custody and control of the Listing to the Renter (or the Renter’s Authorized Person) and when the Renter (or the Renter’s Authorized Person) returns custody and control of the Listing to the Owner (or the Owner’s Authorized Person) is known as the “Rental Period.” A Renter must request an initial Rental Period, with a set Listing pick-up day and time and a set Listing return day and time, and the Owner may accept the Rental Period that the Renter requests. A Renter must request any modifications to an initial Rental Period, with a set Listing pick-up day and time and a set Listing return day and time, and the Owner may accept to any modifications to Rental Period that the Renter requests. Any Renter modifications to the Rental Period that are not accepted by the Owner are not authorized and may result in Beazy or the Owner making a police report against the Renter and pursuing legal action against the Renter.
If the Renter damages , loses, steals, converts, transfers custody and control to a third-party of, and/or fails to return the Owner’s Listing, within the Rental Period, the Renter agrees that they are liable for and agree to immediately pay for the repair or replacement of the Owner’s Listing, up to the specified limit purchased and/or the Replacement Value of the Listing (as provided on the Listing when a Renter requests a Listing) and/or the amount not covered by a Renter's coverage option or insurance policy, and/or the entire deductible amount (if applicable) for the coverage option or insurance policy that covers the Listing. Renters are not liable for pre-existing damage or issues with an Owner’s Listing, if there is proof of pre-existing damage or issues or if the pre-existing damage or issues are not caused by the Renter’s rental and use of the Listing. We always recommend that both Owners and Renters use rental checksheets and thoroughly inspect Listings that they rent.
Beazy is not liable for a User’s (or the User’s Authorized Person) deceptive or fraudulent acts, voluntary parting of Listings, the theft of Listings, and/or any other loss caused by User’s (or the User’s Authorized Person) deceptive or fraudulent acts and a User’s (or the User’s Authorized Person) use of Beazy.co, but Beazy will completely cooperate with the investigation and produce information about the incident and parties involved, working with law enforcement and any insurance companies involved.

23. Disputes (Agreement to Arbitrate)
THE FOLLOWING SECTION AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS REGARDING HOW CLAIMS YOU AND BEAZY HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER, AND HOW CLAIMS YOU AND OTHER USERS HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER, ARE RESOLVED. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY.
Subject to applicable law, you and Beazy agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen or may arise between us, or may arise between us, relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any previous versions of the Agreement, your use of and access to the Service, or any breach, termination, or enforcement of this Agreement will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this “Disputes (Agreement to Arbitrate)” section of the Agreement. This will preclude you from bringing any class, collective, or representative action against Beazy and also preclude you from participating in or recovering relief under any current or future class, collective, consolidated, or representative action brought against Beazy by someone else.
Contact Beazy: If a dispute arises between you and Beazy, we want to do our best to help resolve the dispute. Disputes between you and us may be reported to [email protected]
Applicable Law: You agree that the German law, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms and any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and Beazy, except as otherwise stated in this Agreement.
Agreement to Arbitrate: You and Beazy each agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Beazy (including its respective subsidiaries, employees, officers, directors, and agents), or between you and another User, relating in any way to or arising out of this or previous versions of the Agreement, your use of, or access to the Service, or any services sold, offered, or purchased through the Platform or any breach, enforcement, or termination of this Agreement shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, as an alternative to resolving a dispute in court, except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the threatened or actual infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights.
Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief: YOU AND BEAZY AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS USER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND BEAZY AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER BEAZY USERS.
Arbitration Procedures: Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. An arbitrator may award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. An arbitrator also must follow the terms of this Terms as a court would.
You and Beazy agree that any dispute, claim or controversy under €30,000 in value arising out of or relating to this Agreement, whether between you and Beazy or between you and other Users, or the existence, breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, shall be settled by binding arbitration and not in a court of law, in accordance with its Arbitration Rules & Procedures effective at the time a claim is made. You further agree that judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. You consent to electronic service of process, with service to be made to the email address we have on record for your account.
You and Beazy agree that any dispute, claim or controversy €30,000 and over in value arising out of or relating to this Agreement, whether between you and Beazy or between you and other Users, or the existence, breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, shall be settled by binding arbitration.
You or Beazy may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and Beazy subject to the arbitrator's discretion to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. Attendance at an in-person hearing may be made by telephone by you and/or Beazy, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise. The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the German law, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same User to the extent required by applicable law. The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Non-Disclosure: You agree that any and all communications and evidence related to any dispute ultimately resolved by arbitration or mediation arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be held and will remain confidential, and that you will not take any action that will harm the reputation of any of the other parties to the arbitration or mediation or Beazy, or which would reasonably be expected to lead to unwanted or unfavorable publicity to and of the parties, Beazy or other entities involved in or incidental to the arbitration or mediation. You understand that those parties and entities include but are not limited to the claimant, respondent, witnesses, and Beazy.
Severability: With the exception of any of the provisions in any subsection of this Agreement to Arbitrate ("Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief"), if a court decides that any part of this Agreement to Arbitrate is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall still apply. If a court decides that any of the provisions in subsection of this Agreement to Arbitrate ("Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief") is invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Agreement to Arbitrate shall be null and void. The remainder of the Terms, including all other provisions of this “Disputes (Agreement to Arbitrate)” section, will continue to apply.
Opt-Out Procedure: You can choose to reject this Agreement to Arbitrate ("opt out") by mailing us a written opt-out notice ("Opt-Out Notice"). Please email us at [email protected] for the mailing address. For new Beazy Users, the Opt-Out Notice must be postmarked no later than thirty (30) days after the date you accept the Agreement for the first time. The Opt-Out Notice must state that you do not agree to this Agreement to Arbitrate and must include your name, address, phone number, and the email address used to log in to Beazy Accounts to which the opt-out applies. You must sign the Opt-Out Notice for it to be effective. This procedure is the only way you can opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate. If you opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate, all other parts of the Agreement, including all other provisions of this “Disputes (Agreement to Arbitrate)” section, will continue to apply. Opting out of this Agreement to Arbitrate has no effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may have with us.
Future Changes to the Agreement to Arbitrate: Notwithstanding any provision in the Terms to the contrary, you and we agree that if we make any change to this Agreement to Arbitrate (other than a change to any notice address or services link provided herein) in the future, that change shall not apply to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against Beazy prior to the effective date of the change. Moreover, if we seek to terminate the Agreement to Arbitrate as included in the Terms, any such termination shall not be effective until thirty (30) days after the version of the Terms not containing the Agreement to Arbitrate is posted to https://www.beazy.co, and shall not be effective as to any claim that was filed in a legal proceeding against Beazy prior to the effective date of termination.
