We reserve the right to change prices and product ranges at any time. Deliveries will only be made if the delivery and billing address is in Switzerland. If, after the order confirmation, it is determined that the delivery cannot be fulfilled in full because individual products are not in stock at short notice, we will inform the customer in writing of a new delivery date.
The condition of each unit is reviewed and damages are noted and, if necessary, repaired. The guest has a period of 48 hours upon check-in, to notify Nest of deficiencies. The guest is responsible for reporting any kind of damage incurred during the rental period. Damages resulting from abusive handling of inventory beyond normal wear and tear will result in a replacement or repair. The costs including a service charge will be charged to the guest.
If the tenant and the guest, i.e., the individual using the unit, are non-identical, the tenant guarantees that the guest agrees to the processing of his or her personal data by Nest according to the provision set out in the Booking Agreement. The tenant further guarantees that the guest is aware of his or her rights concerning such processing as set out in the Booking Agreement. In case the tenant fails comply with this provision, it shall indemnify and hold harmless Nest against all liabilities damages and claims (including costs and expenses arising therefrom) which may be incurred.
For the execution of this Booking Agreement personal data of the guest, i.e., the individual using the unit will be processed by Nest. Without the provision of personal data of the guest, this Booking Agreement cannot be concluded. The Guest explicitly agrees to the processing of his or her personal data for the purpose of the execution of this agreement. The guest further agrees that Nest may transfer his or her personal data to Swiss authorities or to a third party involved in the execution of this agreement (e.g. cleaning service provider).

All keys and door locks of apartments in Switzerland are unique and individually tailored to the building and apartment. In the case of a key loss, the entire lock mechanism/cylinder has to be exchanged. The cost of an exchange triggers a cost of CHF 800 to CHF 1500. Additionally a 10% service fee (excl. VAT) will be invoiced for the issue resolution. The loss of non-security keys is charged with CHF 50 plus a 10% service fee (excl. VAT). The charge can be re-claimed from your household goods and liability insurance.
Suggested protocol in case of a key loss
Inform us of the loss, so that we can provide a first level of support and guide you through the steps
We usually wait a couple of days before we initiate the cylinder exchange, because often keys are just miss-placed and surface sooner or later.
Things you can do
Mentally follow what you did since you last had the key
Contact the local lost & found office
Search all your personal belongings.
The guest promises to take care of housing space and all inventory provided and is aware, that he/she is personally responsible for the unit. Any damage (excl. wear & tear) or any extraordinary cleaning requirements will be charged to the guest with a service charge. Nest provides a move-in inspection report with pictures documenting the condition of the unit. Personal effects and valuables belonging to the guests as well as damages caused within the unit are not insured. Please ensure that a valid liability and house-hold goods insurance is in place.
All companions in a residential unit are sub-tenants. The sub-tenants are liable to the main guest. The subtenant is solely responsible for his rented room. All sub-tenants are jointly liable for damage and culpable behavior for common areas such as dining and living rooms, kitchens, hallways, bathrooms. Rental interest is not jointly and severally liable. Damage must therefore be reported to Nest immediately. The sub-tenant is liable if he deliberately or carelessly causes damage to the apartment. The sub-tenant must also be liable for damage caused to the rented property by persons in his household. It is recommended to take out personal liability insurance.
Payment can be made at our discretion by prepayment, credit card or e-finance. The invoice amount will be debited prior to arrival/delivery for short-stays up to 21 nights or purchased consumer goods. Mid- and long-stays will be debited on monthly intervals with the first debit prior to arrival. We reserve the right to deliver goods exclusively against prepayment. In the case of payment on account, you undertake to pay the invoice amount within 14 days of receipt of the invoice. If you are in arrears with the payment, we reserve the right to charge a reminder fee. You can only exercise a right of retention if the claims originate from the same contractual relationship. Payment by sending cash or cheques is not possible. We exclude liability in the event of loss.
Nest generally accepts pets in most of the units at an additional charge. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to register your pet.
A pet agreement with rules will be part of the rental agreement. If signs of non-approved pets are found, Nest reserves the right to charge a penalty fee, the extra cleaning efforts and the possible charges for the work involved to renovate the unit or for the exchange of damaged items.
The guest is responsible for all damages and is 100% liable to recover the cost of inventory, no matter of item age.

In the event of disputes arising from consumer or consumer contracts, you may bring an action at the domicile or registered office of one of the parties. All legal relationships between us and the customer shall be governed by substantive Swiss law to the exclusion of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (Vienna Sales Convention, CISG). If you are a consumer, the statutory provisions of the state in which you have your habitual residence also apply, from which you may not deviate by agreement. Should individual provisions of these terms and conditions be inadmissible, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining clauses.

RIGHT TO RETURN
If you are a consumer, i.e. a natural person who completes the purchase for a purpose that can be attributed neither to your commercial nor to your independent professional activity, you are entitled to the right of return described below. This does not apply to goods that have been specially manufactured for you according to individual customer specifications.
You can return the goods received without giving any reason within 7 days by returning the goods. The period begins after receipt of this instruction in text form (e.g. as a letter, fax, e-mail), but not before receipt of the goods by the recipient (in the case of recurring deliveries of similar consumer goods not before receipt of the first partial delivery) and also not before fulfillment of our legal information and other obligations. Only in the case of goods that cannot be sent by parcel (e.g. bulky goods) can you also declare the return by requesting a return in text form. The timely dispatch of the goods or the request for return is sufficient to meet the deadline. In any case, the return is at our expense and risk. The request for return must be made to: Nest Temporary AG, Lauriedstrasse 7, CH-6300 Zug; E-mail: email@example.com
In the event of an effective return, the services received by both parties shall be returned and, if applicable, any benefits derived shall be surrendered. In the event of a deterioration of the item and for uses (e.g. advantages of use) that cannot be surrendered or cannot be surrendered in part or can only be surrendered in a deteriorated condition, you must compensate us for the value. You only have to pay compensation for the deterioration of the item and for any benefits derived if the use or deterioration is due to handling of the item that goes beyond the examination of the properties and functionality. "Testing the properties and functionality" means testing and trying out the respective goods, as is possible and customary in a retail store, for example. Obligations to reimburse payments must be fulfilled within thirty days. The period begins for you with the dispatch of the goods or the request for return, for us with the receipt.
