2.1. The HelloRomania Platform, made available online by Christian Tour and its partners, offers the possibility that, through it, on the one hand, Suppliers can advertise their products and services for reservation and purchase by clients, and on the other hand, the visitors of this Platform can make these reservations.
2.2. By reserving a room or another tourist service through HelloRomania.com, the visitors of the Platform enter a direct contractual relation (which is legally binding) with Supplier where they are making the reservation or from which they buy a product or a service (according to each case). HelloRomania.com acts only as an intermediary between the visitors/users of the Platform and the Supplier, by sending the details of the reservation to the relevant Supplier (suppliers), and sending the user a confirmation e-mail for and on behalf of the Supplier.

Consequently, HelloRomania.com cannot be held liable for any errors (including typing errors or other obvious errors), any interruptions (either due to any (temporary and/or partial) malfunction, repair, update or maintenance of our platform or others), for inexact, misleading or untruthful information, or the non-transfer of information.
2.5. Each Supplier is permanently, solely and fully responsible for the exactness, integrity and correctness of the (descriptive) information (including prices and availability) presented on the Platform.

3.3.
