Owners agree to submit support requests which clearly describe the issue for which they are requesting support. Requests for support which are insufficiently specific about the issue being raised will be closed without response.
6.3 BookwithOwner.com makes available a booking system which subscribed Owners may use. There is no charge made for this in the subscription fee, and Owners making use of it warrant that they understand and agree that, if they choose to use it, they do so at their own risk and will not request support regarding it. BookwithOwner.com offers an optional support service for Owners using the booking system, for which the price is £100 per year.

6.3 BookwithOwner.com reserves the right to determine the design of the Website, the layout of its search results pages and individual advertisement pages, and the content and precedence of items published on each page.
6.4 The BookwithOwner.com advertisement layout has been designed for the presentation of one letting unit. Within the self catering category this means one cottage, house, apartment, caravan or other type of unit. For advertisements in other categories, this means one accommodation establishment – eg bed and breakfast, hotel, hostel, campsite, caravan site, holiday park. Whilst BookwithOwner.com may at its discretion permit the mention or description of more than one letting unit or accommodation category within one advertisement, the Owner understands and agrees that the advertisement will be listed in one category. In advertisements where the sleeping capacity of a Property is relevant – primarily self catering Properties with a specific number of sleeping spaces – the exact number of sleeping spaces is shown.

6.5 BookwithOwner.com may at its discretion alter any of the pictures and/or text content which form the published content of advertisements.

Text intended primarily for search engine indexing and repeated words or phrases which are superfluous to the meaning of the Advertisement when read by a human are not permitted.
