Our standards and expectations require that all members of the Book Halal Homes community respect each other’s privacy. More specifically, we require hosts to disclose all surveillance devices in their listings, and we prohibit any surveillance devices in certain private spaces (such as bedrooms and bathrooms) regardless of whether they’ve been disclosed.
If you’re a host and you have any type of surveillance device in or around a listing, even if it’s not turned on or hooked up, we require that you let guests know by including this information clearly in your listing description and photographs. If a host discloses the device after booking, Book Halal Homes will allow the guest to cancel the reservation and receive a refund. Host cancellation penalties may apply.
If you’re a guest, our Standards Expectations require that you do not spy on other people, or otherwise violate others’ privacy. Our policy prohibits the use of a surveillance device by a guest to monitor a host or any third party present in the listing without the consent of that person. We encourage you to discuss the use of surveillance devices using Book Halal Homes’s messaging feature.
Violating this policy may result in your suspension or removal from the Book Halal Homes community. In addition, you should ensure that your use of surveillance equipment is consistent with applicable local laws and regulations.
What's considered a surveillance device
Any mechanism that can be used to capture or transmit audio, video, or still images is considered a surveillance device. This includes but is not limited to things like Wi-Fi cameras (e.g. Nest Cam or Dropcam), nanny cameras, web cameras in computer monitors, baby monitors, mounted or installed surveillance systems, and smart phones with video and/or audio recording capabilities.
