You may contact us directly via the platform or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). We conclude contracts exclusively on the basis of these Terms and Conditions of Use, unless we expressly agree otherwise with you. In the case of doubt the German version of our Terms and Conditions of Use is the one that is binding on us. Cityflats makes available an online platform on which commercial providers offer apartments and customers may book those apartments. We exclusively act as agent for the offered apartments. Any contract on the letting of apartments will be directly concluded between you and the provider of the apartment (hereinafter the "Apartment Provider"). The following Terms and Conditions of Use exclusively regulate use of the online platform and provision of specific services as laid down in Clause 7 of these Terms and Conditions of Use, if they are requested by you. You may view our Terms and Conditions of Use on the website or on the sub-sites at the end of the site under "Terms and Conditions of Use" or under the following link address.

2. Use of the platform2.1 Registration
You are free to register on our website as a customer. For this purpose you need to create a customer account, which you may then use for all booking processes. For creating a customer account we require the following data about you: email address, first name and surname. You may check and update your data under the "My data" menu item at any time.
2.2 Booking without registration
You may also book apartments as a "guest" without registering. Your data will then be deleted after the booking has been processed, unless statutory retention duties prescribe otherwise.
2.3 Acting as agent
Our contractual obligation is limited to acting as agent for the offered apartments between the Apartment Provider and you by providing the Cityflats platform. Cityflats itself makes available no apartments. Any contract on the letting of apartments will be directly concluded between you and the Apartment Provider or the provider of substitute accommodation as described in Clause 6.4, if any. Therefore, you are responsible, without any obligation on the part of Cityflats, for informing yourself about and carefully studying, prior to conclusion of any contract, all terms and conditions that may be relevant to conclusion of a contract by means of the information provided by the relevant Apartment Provider.
2.4 Making the booking
On the online platform you may view the different apartments, compare prices and make bookings. Once you have selected an apartment you will need to log onto your customer account or select the "Book as a guest" option. Then you need to enter your data or check the data retrieved from your customer account. Before completing the booking you may interrupt the booking process at any time to see and correct typing errors, if any. By clicking on the "Book with obligation to pay" button the booking process will be completed and becomes binding. By doing so you instruct us to act as your agent for the apartment selected by you. You will be bound by your booking order. By making a booking you accept the Cityflats Terms and Conditions of Use as amended at the time of booking. You need to be at least 18 years old to be allowed to make a booking.
2.5 Conclusion of a contract; Booking confirmation
By making a booking by clicking on the button "Book with obligation to pay" you submit an offer for conclusion of a contract with the Apartment Provider to Cityflats. We will send you a booking confirmation for the apartment you booked. The booking made by you will be deemed accepted only upon receipt of the booking confirmation by you. Should you receive no booking confirmation within 24 hours of your booking, please contact our free customer service at email@example.com or on +43 1 972 888.

As a registered user you are responsible for treating as confidential and not disclosing to unauthorised third parties your personal access data, and, to the extent permitted by law, you agree that you will be responsible for all activities that are carried out via your customer account or password. You should take all necessary steps to ensure that your password will be kept secret and safe, and you should inform us immediately if and when you have reason to fear that a third party has gained knowledge of your password or that your password is being used or is likely to be used without authorisation. You are solely responsible for all entries that you make in connection with your registration or without registration when using this website. You must refrain from disrupting the website in any way whatsoever. Manipulations having the aim of obtaining unauthorised payments or other advantages to the detriment of Cityflats, to the detriment of providers of products or services that are displayed on this website or to the detriment of other users may, apart from the legal consequences, in particular, also lead to deactivation or deletion of your customer account (see Clause 11.).

You are obliged to design all entries you make and are authorised to make in connection with your account in such a way that any misuse of the platform and of your account is excluded from the start, in particular misuse by a threat to public order and security or accepted principles of morality, by infringing rights of third parties, violating applicable laws or being contra bonos mores. You are obliged to do anything and to refrain from doing anything that is necessary or useful to prevent damage or threat to the good reputation of Cityflats, the Apartment Providers or other users.
2.8 No right of rescission
As a matter of principle, consumers as defined in the Austrian Consumer Protection Act [KSchG] have a right to rescind a contract concluded by way of distance selling within 14 days without having to state reasons. However, such right of rescission does not apply, as in this case, to contracts in the sector of accommodation for purposes other than residential purposes, provided that the contract provides for a certain date at which or period during which the entrepreneur has to perform the contract.

We reserve the right to reject or remove (parts of) customer ratings at our discretion, in particular where they are inappropriate, misleading or unlawful.
