Therefore, users hereby give My Booking Box ltd irrevocable permission to use this content for any purpose, and irrevocably waive any claims to or assertion of moral or patrimonial rights regarding this content.
LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY
Given the specific nature of the Internet, My Booking Box ltd offers no guarantee of the continuity of the service, and can only be bound by an obligation of means in this regard.
My Booking Box ltd cannot be held liable in the event of damage linked to temporary unavailability of one of its services on My Booking Box website.
Information on My Booking Box website may be changed at any time, given the interactive nature of the site, for which My Booking Box ltd is not liable.
My Booking Box ltd declines any liability for any damage or loss linked to the use or inability to use My Booking Box website or its content, except in the event of statutory exceptions.
My Booking Box ltd does not guarantee that the information presented is detailed, complete, verified or accurate. The documents, information, descriptive sheets, and, in general, any content on My Booking Box website is provided "as is", with no explicit or tacit guarantee of any kind.
Users expressly acknowledge that the photos on My Booking Box website are not contractually binding.
Generally, users accept and acknowledge that the reservation is not guaranteed. As such, My Booking Box ltd does not guarantee the effectiveness of the booking service. Availability is checked digitally and in real time and a table is actually booked via the computer. However, as My Booking Box ltd is not able to physically check the accuracy of the information collected and/or given by the service providers, users accept that My Booking Box ltd cannot be held liable if the user is unable to benefit from the restaurant's services. The configurations of the real time reservation software partially depend on the information supplied and/or saved by the Restaurant / Meeting place Owner and may not reflect reality. So, for example, users acknowledge and accept that My Booking Box ltd shall not under any circumstances be held liable if the booking is cancelled if the restaurant is closed for any reason, or if the service is refused for any reason.
Likewise, and for the same reasons, users accept that My Booking Box ltd cannot be held liable if the user is not able to benefit from the restaurant's promotions or special offers. Users acknowledge and accept that My Booking Box ltd shall not be held liable if the restaurant fails to honour a promotion or special offer for any reason.
Users state that they are fully familiar with the features and limitations of the Internet. They acknowledge that it is impossible to guarantee that the data sent by the user over the Internet will be fully secure. My Booking Box ltd cannot be held responsible for any incidents which could arise from this data transfer.
Users therefore disclose the data at their own risk. My Booking Box ltd can only give assurances that it will use all the means available to it to ensure maximum security.
Users agree to compensate My Booking Box ltd for any costs that My Booking Box ltd has to bear as a result of any claim or dispute, in our out of court, linked to the use of the services set out herein by the user. The user agrees to hold My Booking Box ltd harmless against any pronouncement in this regard in the event of legal proceedings.
In any case, users explicitly acknowledge and agree to use My Booking Box website at their own risk and under their sole responsibility.
My Booking Box website contains links to third party websites. Linked sites are not under the control of My Booking Box ltd, and My Booking Box ltd is not responsible for the content of these related sites. My Booking Box ltd supplies these links for convenience only, and a link does not mean that My Booking Box ltd sponsors or recommends the linked site in question or that My Booking Box ltd is affiliated to it. Linked sites are owned and operated by independent retailers or service providers, and as such My Booking Box ltd cannot guarantee that you will be satisfied with their products, services or business practices. It is your responsibility to make any checks you think are necessary or appropriate before entering into any transactions with one of these third parties.

Absence of renunciation
Unless stipulated otherwise in these general conditions, no tolerance, failure to act, abstention or omission, and no delay by My Booking Box ltd in asserting any of its rights under this agreement, can jeopardise said right, and cannot be understood as a renunciation to assert said right in the future.
