In this case however, LYB is still entitled to receive its transaction fee.
7.1 The position in which the Rental or Service advert appears within the search on the LYB Portal is determined automatically and unilaterally by Letyourboat. The position of the search result and advert placement are based on Letyourboat owned algorithms, and are influenced by various factors including, but not limited to, review scores, ratings, number of bookings, cancellations and complaints.

In particular, the User undertakes to not send or distribute through the website and its functions, unlawful, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, offensive or ambiguous content, nor to use the site and its functions to perform actions that may damage the image and reputation of Letyourboat or other users or to cause any other loss or damage to Letyourboat.
9.4 Furthermore, the User undertakes to not send unwanted advertising material or communication that could interfere with the functionality and/or use of the LYB Portal by third parties.
10.1 Letyourboat cannot be held responsible for the failure or partial execution of Rentals and Services, the responsibility of which remains with the Host and/or Guest Assistant and/or Supplier/Tour Operator. Nonetheless, as a payment transaction manager, in case of a complaint by the Guest for a proven non compliance or serious lack of performance on the part of the Host and/or Guest Assistant and/or Supplier/Tour Operator that prevents the Guest from receiving the service booked, Letyourboat undertakes to return the payment of the service to the Guest, witholding the same amount from the non-compliant Host, Guest Assistant or Supplier/Tour Operator.
10.2 Letyourboat is not part of any contract between Host and Guest and/or between Supplier/Tour Operator and Guest and therefore is not responsible for damage resulting from the use or non-use of the Rental and/or Lease and services. In addition, Letyourboat cannot be held responsible for the legal obligations and licenses of Host and Supplier/Tour Operator, such as authorisations, licenses, safety equipment, on board storage of documents, notification to Port Authorities and the Tax & Revenue Office and to the offices and bodies in charge.
10.3 Letyourboat cannot be held responsible for eventual consequences arising from the use of hyperlinks on the LYB Portal, or for consequences arising from accessing these links.
10.4 Letyourboat is solely responsible for direct damages caused by willful misconduct and gross negligence and therefore due to a very evident deviation of LYB’s behaviour from the rules of diligence, prudence and and expertise that the specific case would have required to observe. Furthermore, Letyourboat is responsible for any negligent violation of the essential contractual obligations of Letyourboat itself, its legal representatives, directors or other delegates; this liability is limited to compensation for a maximum total amount equal to the cost of the reservation, whether it is an event or a series of related events.
10.5 However, and as permitted by law, LYB and its executives, operators, managers, employees, representatives, subsidiaries, affiliates licensees, agents or persons involved in the production, sponsorship, promotion or dissemination of the site and its contents, do not provide any explicit or implied statement or guarantee, nor will they be held responsbile for:
(i) special, indirect or consequential losses or damages, loss of production, profit, income, contract, injury or damage to good name and reputation, loss of right;

(iii) the services provided or the products offered by the Hosts, Guest Assistants and Suppliers/Tour Operators;
(iv) direct, indirect, consequential damages, losses or costs incurred as a result of the non-use or delay in response or malfunctions of the LYB Portal, of the User’s electronic equipment or that of third parties, including Internet Service Providers, telephone and/or telematic connections;
(v) personal damages, death, damage to property or other types of damage (direct, indirect, special, consequential or punitive), for loss, for the costs incurred or paid for legal action, errors, violations, serious misconduct, intentional mismanagement, omission, negligence, false declarations, civil or objective liability and/or for an unlawful act attributable in part or fully to the Host and/or Guest Assistant and/or Supplier/Tour Operator, to its staff, directors, managers, agents, representatives or affiliated companies, including total or partial cancellations, overbookings, strikes, force majeure or any other event outside of our control;
(vi) personal damages, death, damage to property or other types of damage (direct, indirect, special, consequential or punitive), for loss and costs incurred or paid for legal action, errors, violation, serious misconduct, intentional mismanagement, omission, negligence, false declarations, civil or objective laibility and/or for an unlawful act attributable either partially or totally to the Guest;
10.6 The Guest understands and acknowledges that the Rental or Lease of a boat, the use of Services and Excursions (Experiences) offered by the LYB Platform, involve some risk taking and could be dangerous and also carry the risk of injury or illness, damage to property, disability, permanent damage or death. The Guest therefore acknowledges that it has reasonably assessed the risks associated with the Experiences and has made an informed and voluntary choice to participate in and benefit from such Products and Services. The Guest (and not the Host or Guest Assistant or Supplier/Operator) is therefore responsible for determining their eligibility to participate in the Experiences and their capacity to fully understand any directions or warnings given, by not participating in any Experience, Rental or Lease in the case of physical limitations, medical or mental disability, or if they are aware of any factors that may limit or prevent them from safely participating in that Experience, Rental or Lease. The Guest therefore indemnifies LYB, the Host, Guest Assistant and Suppliers/Tour Operators of the risks related to the use of the Experience, Rental or Lease. This Release and Waiver by the Guest is a complete and unconditional release from all responsibility to the maximum extent permitted by law;
To participate in an Experience, the Hosts, Guest Assistants and Suppliers/Tour Operators require the acceptance of this Release and Waiver, which will be effective from the date on which the reservation is made. In the case of a Reservation made on behalf of other guests, the Guest assures and guarantees that each guest – on behalf of whom he has read and accepted this Release and Waiver – agrees that this discipline will apply to them as if it were signed by them. In the event of a guest being a minor, the Guest acknowledges and agrees to be the person solely responsible for the supervision of that child – on behalf of whom he has read and accepted this Release and Waiver – for the duration of the Rental, Lease or Service.
10.7 Pursuant to Legislative Decree no. 62 of 2018, which lays down the rules for the implementation of Directive (EU) 2015/2302, the Tourist Services on the LYB Portal are to be considered individual tourist services and therefore the valid rights for travel packages do NOT apply to them. LYB is therefore not responsible for the correct execution of the Tourist Services whose supply and accountability remains on the part of the Supplier/Tour Operator.
10.8 For the promotion and sale of Tourist Services, LYB is covered by Europassistance Insurance under policy no. 4400952 for Travel Agent Civil Liability and is registered with the Travel Guarantee Fund for risks in the event of insolvency, with certificate no.

Any eventual changes will be communicated to Users via email with 30 days notice without prejudice to the Users’ right to withdrawal via email communication.
