1. Scope of our Service
Through the website marketplace – portal we Atlantis Global Yönetim ve Bilişim Sistemleri Turizm Ticaret İthalat İhracat A.Ş. provide an online platform for information society mediation service through which owners – operators – brokers can advertise their vessels for reservations and bookings, and through which visitors, users, customers can make such reservations and bookings. By making a reservation or booking through E-Yacht you enter a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with the owner – operator – broker at which you reserve or book. From the point at which you make your reservation or booking, we act solely as an intermediary between you and the owner – operator, transmitting the details of your reservation or booking to the relevant owner – operator – broker for exact vessel and sending you a confirmation email for and on behalf of the owner – operator – broker. When rendering our services, the information that we disclose is based on the information provided to us by the owners – operators – brokers and their own vessel fleet. As such, the owners – operators – brokers are given access to an extranet through which they are fully responsible for updating all rates, availability and other information which is displayed on our website marketplace – portal. Although we will use reasonable skill and care in performing our services we will not verify if, and cannot guarantee that, all information is accurate, complete or correct, nor can we be held responsible for any errors (including manifest and typographical errors), any interruptions (whether due to any (temporary and/or partial) breakdown, repair, upgrade or maintenance of our website marketplace – portal or otherwise), inaccurate, misleading or untrue information or non-delivery of information. Each owner – operator – broker remains responsible at all times for the accuracy, completeness and correctness of the (descriptive) information (including the rates and availability) displayed on our website marketplace – portal. Our website marketplace – portal does not constitute and should not be regarded as a recommendation or endorsement of the quality, service level or rating of any vessel made available. Our services are made available for personal and non-commercial use only. Therefore, you are not allowed to re-sell, deep-link, use, copy, monitor (e.g. spider, scrape), display, download or reproduce any content or information, software, products or services available on our website for any commercial or competitive activity or purpose.
The prices on our website portal are highly competitive. All prices on website marketplace – portal are per vessel for your entire charter choosing period and are displayed including VAT tax and all other taxes (subject to change of such taxes), unless stated differently on our website marketplace – portal or in the confirmation email. Sometimes cheaper rates are available on our website marketplace – portal for a specific renting period of a vessel; however, these rates made by owners – operators – brokers may carry special restrictions and conditions, for example in respect to last minute, cancellation and refund. Please check the vessel and rate details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation or booking order.
3. E-Yacht Service Fee
The service fee helps us run our platform and provide innovative services. E-Yacht.eu service fee payable by credit / debit card (Visa, Master, American Express) at the time of booking to secure your order and is non-refundable. Charterers are presented with the total amount of the yacht details on the checkout page before they finalize the booking. No other fee or commission will apply to your booking. The E-Yacht service fee can be anywhere between 0% and 8% after all discounts and only on the yacht charter hire price. A general rule of thumb is that the higher the booking price, the lower the service fee.
E-Yacht.eu uses high ethical standards and respects your privacy. Save for disclosures required by law in any relevant jurisdiction and the disclosure of your name, email address and your credit card / debit card detail for completing your booking with the relevant vessel of your choice, we will not disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent.
