2. GOTOPARK SERVICES
The Service Provider registers his/her products and services on the GoToPark Website for presentation to the Client. The Client may examine these products and services or compare the data with those of another company and make a Reservation.
The Client who makes a reservation agrees to contract an agreement with the Service Provider directly. GoToPark is only a mediator between the Client and the Service Provider. After a reservation has been made, GoToPark sends a confirmation e-mail to the Client.
GoToPark passes on the Reservation details and beneficial information regarding the Client to the Service Provider. In particular, this information is to include the arrival date, the number of days of reservation, the Client's Identity Card or details of identification, the details of the Client's vehicle and any special requests made by the Client.
Based on the agreement between GoToPark and the Service Provider, on behalf of and for the account of the Service Provider GoToPark collects the Reservation fee that has been independently specified by the Service Provider and deals with the Clients' invoicing and after-sales services. The provision of after-sales services by GoToPark does not constitute any acceptance of responsibility on the part of GoToPark.
GoToPark provides no services other than those specified in the General Conditions. GoToPark does not sell or let out car park spaces. The Website is not a platform for recommendation. GoToPark, on whose Website Service Providers may be found, is not a means of approval for the quality and level of the products and services provided by the Service Provider.
The information given on the Website is provided by the Service Provider who bears all responsibility therefore. While taking the utmost care regarding the information on the Website and while regularly updating this information in the pursuit of the highest level of correctness, GoToPark cannot be held responsible for any discrepancies and GoToPark does not guarantee the correctness of the given information.
GoToPark invites the Service Provider to act in a professional manner and to provide correct, clear, full and detailed information, including the fees and availability of the products and services. The Service Provider bears sole responsibility for the information presented and published on the Website.
3. PRICES / FEES / PAYMENT
The Service Provider is free to specify whatever fee he/she may wish for the products and services presented on the Website. GoToPark does not intervene on matter of the specification of fees. However, while giving no guarantee, GoToPark will use its influence on the Service Provider to secure the most competitive prices.
The prices shown on the Website are valid as daily rates. The Client will only pay the price that is stipulated at the time the reservation is made definite and specified in the written confirmation sent by GoToPark.
Prices may change and in particular, changes may be applied (i) to the offer made regarding the date chosen by the Client, (ii) in connection with restrictive or more flexible conditions (in particular, with regard to the possibility of the cancellation of a Reservation free of charge), and (iii) regarding, in general, the Service Provider's economic and commercial preferences.
The Client pays the fee in full as a cash payment together with the Reservation. As an exception, the Client may make the payment specified during the Reservation or on the due date.
Within the limitations of the service provided by the Client's bank, payments made via the Website are made with the mediation of a third party payment institution (not GoToPark) and a means that has security measures. Payment is made by way of the Client's credit card, bank account or other means found on the Website. During the Reservation the Client choses one of the payment methods offered. In the event the Client pays by credit card, the Client enters the name on his/her credit card, the card number, the card expiry date and the security number. In payments of this sort, some banks may additionally request a digipass type signature. Following the relevant bank's verification procedure, the payment is then confirmed or rejected. Following the confirmation of the payment, the payment is made within the framework of the conditions agreed with the bank by which the card has been issued.
GoToPark collects the payment on behalf of and for the account of the Service Provider and transfers the payment to the Service Provider on behalf of and for the account of the Client in compliance with the agreement between GoToPark and the Service Provider.
The payment made by the Client is the final payment of the Reservation fee and unless otherwise specified cannot be refunded.
GoToPark is not responsible for the misuse or unauthorised use of the Client's credit card or bank account. The Client is solely responsible and takes every precaution to prevent any such situation from arising.
4. CANCELLATION / PAYMENT REFUNDS
The finalisation and payment of the Reservation show that the Client has read, understood and agreed to the Service Provider's General or Special Conditions. These conditions cover the cancellation and/or change of the Reservation, the Client's non-arrival or delayed arrival on the Reservation date to take delivery of the Service Provider's product and service. These conditions are shown both on the Website and on the letter of confirmation sent to the Client by GoToPark. Additionally, a copy of the conditions may be obtained by way of a written request sent to GoToPark.
The Client is to agree to comply with these conditions (in particular to those regarding delays) and in the event of the cancellation and/or change of the Reservation and/or the Client's non-arrival or delayed arrival on the reserved date the Client is to accept the consequences as the sole responsible party. Under no circumstances can GoToPark be held responsible for these outcomes.
The Client is warned that with certain rates and certain Reservations, in the event the Client cancels and/or changes the Reservation and/or fails to arrive or arrives late on the date for which the Reservation has been made the payment is non-refundable or only a portion of the payment is refundable.
In the event the Service Provider accepts the possibility of a refund of the payment, the Client asks the Service Provider to send a communication to GoToPark in order to enable the refund to be made.
Independently of the Service Provider's own conditions, GoToPark refunds only 80% at the most of the payment made to the Client. The remaining 20% covers the services provided by GoToPark (e.g. the use of the Website, Reservation platform, payment service etc.). In this situation, GoToPark prepares a credit invoice for the full payment (100%) made by the Client and a separate invoice for the 20% deduction.
Any complaint or claim regarding the GoToPark services must be sent within the foreclosure period of fifteen calendar days following the Reservation. In the contrary case, it will be considered that the service was provided in the correct manner and in accordance with the Client's expectations and no claim may be made against GoToPark by way of the relevant service. Claims are to be sent to the GoToPark headquarters or to the following e-mail .
Regarding the services provided by the Service Provider, the Client may at any time inform GoToPark electronically ( via the e-mail ) of their observations and/or their suggestions and/or their dissatisfaction.
In the event a dispute arises with the Client regarding any of the services provided by the Service Provider, the Client is to make contact with GoToPark and GoToPark will endeavour to find a solution that is satisfactory for both parties. GoToPark's role while doing this is limited to the role of a mediator and/or conciliator and does not include an obligation to obtain a result. Unless otherwise specified, GoToPark's intervention is free of charge and is part of the "after-sales service".
