    Please read these Terms of Use (the “Terms”). This document is legally binding on you even if you are just browsing Medicalprolodging.com (the “Site” or “Medicalprolodging”) without making a reservation or contacting us. Our Privacy Policy also governs your use of the Site. If you do not want to accept and agree to these Terms or the Privacy Policy, you must exit the Site. Note that we may revise these Terms every once in a while whenever we feel it is appropriate, without notifying you. If you continue visiting our Site after we have published the revised Terms on this page, this constitutes your acceptance of the changes. Please check this page periodically to take notice of any changes we made.

  2. Platform

    The Site is a marketplace to assists medical providers who are traveling for business with locating short-term housing. We do not endorse any particular user or accommodation and we are not a party to user transactions. The agreement for providing the service (accommodation) is solely between the Guest and the Host. We do not own or operate accommodations. Our role is limited to providing a neutral platform to connect users to each other. We are not responsible for how users use our Site. It is your sole responsibility to take adequate safety precautions. We recommend the Hosts have appropriate insurance policies.

    Transacting outside the Site to avoid paying the Site service fees is strictly prohibited.

    Hosts cannot discriminate against or harass anyone based on race, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, physical or mental disability, medical condition, marital status, age or sexual orientation, or otherwise engage in any abusive, violent, harmful, or disruptive behavior.

  3. Booking & Payments
    1. There are two types of user accounts:

      1. Guests - medical providers who want to find and book housing.
      2. Hosts - those who list their accommodation and make it available for booking.
    2. Once a booking is confirmed on the Site, a legally binding agreement is formed between the Guest and the Host, subject to any additional terms and conditions of the Host that apply, including in particular the applicable cancellation policy and any rules and restrictions specified in the listing.
    3. The Site does not handle security deposits. If the Host wants to collect a security deposit, the listing description must specify that. The Site is not responsible for monetary transactions between Hosts and Guests, and for any disputes related to security deposits.
    4. Guests will be charged a Service Fee (based on reservation amount) and Hosts will be charged a Host fee to cover payment processing costs. The Site will collect the full payment from the Guest, plus the Service Fee, then disburse the reservation amount minus the Host fee to the Host.
    5. The Site uses Paypal as the 3rd party payment processor. Hosts are solely responsible for determining their tax obligations. Any prices posted to The Site must include applicable taxes.
    6. After the stay is complete, Guests and Hosts can leave reviews for each other. You must only submit truthful and not misleading reviews.
