1. GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Unless otherwise stipulated in writing, the placing of an order with the PROVIDER implies acceptance by the USER of these legal conditions. No stipulation made by the USER may differ from those of the PROVIDER if it has not been expressly accepted in advance and in writing by the PROVIDER.

This marketplace platform offers the service of putting in contact OFFERS, not being responsible for the products and/or services offered by the external SUPPLIERS since, according to EU Directive 2000/31/CE:

  • It acts solely as an intermediary between the PROVIDER and the USER, acting as a "meeting point" or "data host".
  • There is no effective knowledge of the activity or information displayed by the SUPPLIERS, in the PROVIDER's marketplace or elsewhere, whether it is lawful or not, or whether it harms property and rights of a third party liable for compensation.

The service allows the USER to register on the marketplace, to contact the SUPPLIERS to place orders for services and to communicate with each other using a messaging tool made available to them.


2. DISPATCH AND DELIVERY OF ORDERS

The PROVIDER will not activate any service until it has verified that payment has been made.Once payment has been confirmed and the booking has been made, the service shall be deemed to have been provided.


Failure to perform the contract remotely

In the event that the contract cannot be executed because the contracted service is not available on time, the USER will be informed of the lack of availability and will be entitled to cancel the order and receive a refund of the total amount paid at no cost, and without any liability for damages attributable to the PROVIDER.

In the event of unjustified delay on the part of the PROVIDER with regard to the refund of the total amount, the USER may claim payment of double the amount due, without prejudice to his right to be compensated for any damages suffered in excess of this amount.

The PROVIDER shall not assume any responsibility when the delivery of the service does not take place due to false, inaccurate or incomplete data provided by the USER.

In the event that the contract does not entail the physical delivery of any product, but rather the activation of services, the PROVIDER will previously inform the USER of the procedure to be followed to activate the services.


3. RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL

The USER has a period of fourteen (14) calendar days, counted from the date of conclusion of the purchase contract if it is a provision of a service, to exercise the right of withdrawal, regulated in article 102 of Royal Legislative Decree 1/2007, of 16 November, which approves the revised text of the General Law for the Defence of Consumers and Users and other complementary laws, hereinafter RDL 1/2007.
