As a refugee
The website https://eu4ua.org/ (hereinafter the " Website "), edited by the association EU4UA (hereinafter " EU4UA " or " us ") is a match-making website connects Ukrainian refugees looking for emergency housing due to the current war in their country with hosts offering to house them temporarily free of charge.
Should you have any questions, you may directly contact EU4UA by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Host" means a person who offers to host one or more Refugees in his/her home for a limited period of time and who also meets all the conditions set by EU4UA to create a personal account on the Website as a Host.
"Refugee" means a person originally residing in Ukraine seeking emergency housing in Europe due to the current war in his/her country and who also meets all the conditions set by EU4UA to create his/her personal account on the Website as a Refugee.
"Website" means the website https://eu4ua.org/.
"User" means the person who accesses, consults, navigates and/or uses all or part of the Website and its services. Hosts and Refugees are Users.
Access to the Website is technically possible twenty-four (24) hours a day and seven (7) days per week, except in cases involving force majeure, possible outages or breakdowns or any disruption due to maintenance, which may be necessary for the good running of the Website.
The User acknowledges having the skills and means necessary to access and use the Website and its services. In this respect, the User must have a computer or any other device with an Internet connection, whose settings must enable the proper functioning of the Website and its services.
In general, the User declares that he/she is aware of the risks associated with browsing websites and using online services and accepts them. In particular, the User acknowledges that the information that passes over the Internet or is stored there may be intercepted or altered, independently of the will of EU4UA.
As such, it is strongly recommended that Users take all necessary precautions to protect themselves against the adverse effects of hacking, in particular by adopting a secure and appropriate computer configuration of their computers, cell phones or other devices (e.g., by installing regularly updated virus detection software).
EU4UA provides the means for Refugees to be connected with Hosts in order to be housed free of charge for a limited period of time. Once the registration on the Website is approved, the User is added to the lists of Refugees looking an emergency housing in one of the countries covered by the Website (mainly countries within Europe). The connection is made on the basis of the information provided by the Refugees and the Hosts at the time of the creation of their personal account and subsequently updated if necessary (number of the family members with the Refugee, location of the housing, characteristics of the housing, etc.). The Refugee will have access to the profiles of the Hosts corresponding to his/her criteria and will be entitled to send them a contact request in order to give them his/her contact details. If one of the Hosts decides to follow up on the contact request, the Refugee and the Host will discuss the details of the housing arrangement, including the duration of the stay, by email or WhatsApp.
The Host is not obligated to house the Refugee by whom it has been contacted. Once the Host has been put in contact with a Refugee, the Host nevertheless undertakes to do everything reasonably possible to provide housing for the Refugee in view of the particular circumstances with which the Refugee is already confronted. This temporary accommodation will not give rise to any remuneration or financial compensation claims of any kind to the Host. It is an exclusively gracious act of solidarity on the part of the Host.
The service offered on the Website by EU4UA is limited to enabling the contact between Refugees and Hosts registered on the Website. Once the contact request has been transmitted, EU4UA does not intervene in any way in the relationship between the Refugee and the Host, in particular with regard to the determination of the housing terms, including the duration of the housing.
