We have the sole and absolute right to remove any feedback we choose for whatever reason.
If something outside our control happens - it could be riots, floods, war, strikes and a lot of other similar things - we are not liable and do not have to compensate you if any delays or problems occur.
- We are an advertising platform only and do not inspect any of the Properties offered through the Site and so you must ensure that a Property meets your particular requirements before making a Booking as we have no responsibility for any problems or issues that arise.
- We can't promise that the Site will meet your needs; that it will work properly; that it will be fit for a particular purpose or that it will not infringe the rights of others.

- We take all reasonable effort to test material before placing it on the Site. In the very unlikely event of any loss, disruption or damage, we cannot be held responsible for any loss, disruption or damage to your data or computer system which may occur whilst using material derived from the Site.
