4.3 Availability of the Platform
The Platform is accessible continuously, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
However, the availability of Third Party systems and in particular the Internet is limited by technological and environmental factors that may impact data transmission. The Platform may thus be limited or temporarily unavailable, without notice. The CRTB cannot be held responsible for malfunctions and interruptions related to these third-party services.
In addition, the CRTB reserves the right to interrupt access to the Platform from time to time in order to ensure the security and maintenance of its IT infrastructures.
5. CONSULTATION OF OFFERS
The User may freely consult the Offers on the Platform.
As the CRTB is a technical service provider, it does not sell Offers and only offers the consultation and reservation of Offers previously deposited on the Platform by a Professional.
Thus, the CRTB does not own or control any of the Offers accessible on the Platform. The Offers are owned and controlled by the Professional.
The CRTB hosts the content, including price, availability, images and other information made available or obtained from the Professional. The CRTB cannot be held responsible for the accuracy, quality, completeness, reliability, timeliness or honesty of the Offers, the CRTB having no influence on it.
6. BOOKING AN OFFER
The User has the possibility to book the Selected Offer directly on the Platform.
The User is informed that it is the general conditions of sale of the Professional that will apply to the reservation. Thus, waivers, modifications and cancellations concerning the reservation of an Offer must be made directly to the Professional.
By booking an Offer on the Platform, the User acknowledges that the CRTB is only an intermediary and does not enter into the contractual relationship between the User and the Professional. The CRTB is therefore considered a Third Party to the transaction between the Professional and the User.
The CRTB is in no way responsible for any failure, modification or any problem encountered by the User when booking the Offer.
The CRTB is not responsible for the proper execution of the contract between the Professional and the User.
7. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
The CRTB has all the intellectual property rights necessary for the provision of the Platform and the Offers.
Therefore, the User is not authorized to copy, create links (hyper or deep) to the Platform and/or its contents, publish, promote, market, integrate or otherwise use the Platform and/or its contents without the written permission of the CRTB.
8. PERSONAL DATA
9. HYPERTEXT LINKS
The Platform may contain hypertext links to Third Party or partner sites. They are provided solely for the convenience of the User, in order to facilitate the use of the resources available on the Internet.
The CRTB indicates that it has no control over these Third Party sites and disclaims any responsibility relating to these sites. These GTCU do not apply in any way to Third Party sites to which the User can access via the Platform.
10. FORCE MAJEURE
The CRTB declines all responsibility in the event of unavailability of the Platform or for any event concerning the reservation of an Offer made by a User and resulting from a case of force majeure as defined in Article 1218 of the Civil Code, including, without limitation, in the event of war, terrorism, riots, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, fires, floods, accidents, strikes, epidemics or other natural disasters, failures of means of transport, fuel, energy, workers or materials, or breakdowns of public or private telecommunications networks.

13. NO WAIVER
The fact that the CRTB does not rely on the User’s non-compliance with its obligations cannot be interpreted as a waiver of any subsequent non-compliance with the same or other obligations, or as a waiver of the right to ensure the application of said obligations.

The User and the CRTB will endeavor to resolve amicably any disputes that may arise relating to the validity, interpretation or execution of these terms and conditions.
