Nautal Smart Sailing S.L. (henceforth NSS), with CIF B66034539, registered in the Mercantile Registry of Barcelona and address Josep Pla, 2, B3, 6B 08019, Barcelona, Spain, applies the following general terms of service and use to their customers. NSS is devoted to the management of boat charters bookings (not to the rental itself), and of collections of these rentals.
The boat charter, which is between the client and the final service provider (owner or manager of the boat), is governed by the rental contract with the final service provider. NSS does not intervene in the rental contract, nor is a party.
The aim and intent of NSS is to fully satisfy the client. Please, report any incident without delay to email@example.com. Furthermore, any communication or document should be sent to the same email address.
1. SUBJECT MATTER OF THE SERVICE AND THE CONTRACT
NSS provides brokerage services (by managing bookings) in the pleasure boat charters. Through NSS and/or nautal.com, the client books the charter, and if applicable, rents a boat to the final service provider, in accordance with the terms and the price agreed with the provider.
All the boats in nautal.com are offered by NSS which acts as a mediator and whose responsibility is limited to bringing into contact the client with the final service provider, who is solely and directly responsible for the provision of the service. NSS is not responsible for the provision of the service and, therefore, does not have the obligation to answer in the event of the non-fulfillment or the incomplete fulfillment of the contracted service with the final service provider, with whom the client has contracted the service. Nevertheless, NSS informs that all the final service providers have been explicitly requested to meet the requirements of the service, according to the sector standards and to the rental contract. The non-fulfillment of this obligation by the final service providers, implies that NSS may exclude them from nautal.com.
The final service provider explicitly entrusts NSS with the task of collecting the rental payment for the contracted service, as well as blocking the part of the amount agreed. Other services, extras and the deposit will be agreed between the client and the final service provider, but in this case they will be charged by the latter.
The client expressly accepts this limitation of liability of NSS and, in consequence, NSS is only responsible for managing and formalizing the booking of the chosen boat, and of managing the payment of the deposit and the rental, according to the conditions and measures established and the characteristics advertised. The client acknowledges that the final service provider may not accept the booking, in which case NSS will offer the client alternative boats or the full refund of the amount blocked and/or paid.
Although we aim to perform the service as advertised on nautal.com, we cannot verify or guarantee that all the information is precise, complete or correct. The final service provider is responsible for the information about boats (prices, configuration, features, extras, etc.) included on nautal.com. NSS does not verify this information and, therefore, the final service provider is the only party responsible for the veracity and accuracy of such information. The client accepts that any complaint in this sense will be made directly and exclusively against the final service provider. Without prejudice to it, we inform you that NSS requests the final service providers to give accurate and correct information; otherwise, they may be excluded from nautal.com. Any incident, we recommend to be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The rental contract will have the duration stated in the rental booking form, without prejudice to being subject to the contract regulation to subscribe to the final service provider. Any change in its duration, should be informed to NSS.
