Information about you and your visits to our site
If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, we have the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the site (or any portion thereof).
The information provided on the site is not intended for distribution to or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject us to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country. Accordingly, those persons who choose to access the site from other locations do so on their own initiative and are solely responsible for compliance with local laws to the extent local laws are applicable.
Services booked through our site
We operate our site and act as an interface between the Customer and the Suppliers with respect to offering and supplying all Services. We are an intermediary only.
The Customer’s contract is with the respective Supplier and we are not responsible for the quality, delivery, operation, or any other aspect of the Services.
The Customer must be at least 18 years old, be legally authorized to enter into contractual obligations, have the requisite consent or authority to act for and on behalf of any persons included in the transaction, and must use our site in accordance with these Terms and the applicable Supplier terms and conditions. These Terms supplement all Supplier terms and conditions.
If the Customer does not present themself at the relevant place at the relevant time to make use of the Services in question, no refund will be due to the Customer.
It is possible that, from time to time, for technical reasons, for reasons of force majeure, or because of the actions of a third party, the Services originally booked are replaced by similar Services (including but not limited to, a different berth than the one originally booked).
It is possible that, from time to time, particular Services offered by the Suppliers that are shown in the description of the booking on our site are cancelled, for example as a result of weather conditions or force majeure.
The local authorities in certain countries may impose additional taxes (tourist tax, etc.) which have to be paid locally. The Customer is exclusively responsible for paying such additional taxes.
The price of the Services will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error. Prices may change at any time, but changes will not affect bookings already accepted. Despite our best efforts, some of the Services listed on our site may be incorrectly priced and we are under no obligation to provide Services to a Customer at an incorrect (lower) price, even after such Customer has been sent confirmation of their booking.
The prices on our website do not include insurance. You are therefore advised to obtain insurance that provides cover for certain special risks such as the cost of repatriation in the event of an accident or illness.
The Customer accepts that since we act as an interface only between the Customer and the Supplier, we will under no circumstances be held liable with respect to Services the Customer has booked with one or more Suppliers. The price for Services booked on our site must be paid directly to us. The booking is valid only after payment for the booked Services have been made.
Booking confirmation, changes and cancellations
A booking or order confirmation will be sent to the Customer by email. If the Customer does not receive a confirmation by email within 24 hours of when the booking was made, the Customer must contact customer services (see below).
Cancellations of or changes to Services may be made on the "My bookings" area of the site, and are subject to the respective Supplier’s terms and conditions. Change fees or cancellation fees may apply.
If you have purchased a cancellation right option (if available and as stated on our site from time to time), reservation changes or cancellations can be made up until 12.00 noon the day before arrival.
If you need assistance with changes or cancellations, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org marked Cancellation/Change’. Should a refund be due to Customer, we will transfer the total paid marina fee minus any cancellation fee and/or booking fee to the Customer account used for the payment.
Fees and payment
We accept various methods of payment as indicated on the payment page of the site. You agree to provide current, complete, and accurate purchase and account information for all purchases made via the site. You further agree to promptly update account and payment information, including email address, payment method, and payment card expiration date, so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed. We bill you through an online billing service for purchases made via the site. Sales, use or similar taxes will be added to the price of purchases where we determine it is applicable – the total price including applicable taxes will be shown at check-out before you complete your purchase. All payments shall be in the currency indicated on the payment page.
You agree to pay all charges or fees at the prices then in effect for your Service purchases, and you authorize us to charge your chosen payment provider for any such amounts upon making your purchase. If your purchase is subject to recurring charges, then you consent to our charging your payment method on a recurring basis without requiring your prior approval for each recurring charge, until you notify us of your cancellation.
We also reserve the right to refuse any order placed through the site.
