it does not say that they require a passport so I don't think that is true
Try to rent a place through them.

If you don't give them a copy of your passport, they cancel the booking (and take a month to return your money).

But if I am going to have people staying in my home, the more verification on who they are the better, I say.
As a landlord, you are entitled to see the renter's passport, and I would happily show you mine, if I rented from you.

If you told me that you wanted to store a copy of my passport in a database, however, I would refuse to let you.

As a web-site, not a landlord (check the court cases where they have demanded that they are not landlords, to avoid paying taxes and meeting regulations), they have no right to even ask to see my passport, let alone store it in a database.
