Conditions of Service

The website www.mycruiseship.info (the “Website”) is a business-to-business website and is owned and operated by Hanspeter KOVACS, Untere Hauptstraße 9, 7100 Neusiedl am See, Austria (“MYCS”).

The Website is principally intended for use by the maritime community as a sectoral index tool for finding information about

  • suppliers to the maritime industry and their products as well as
  • recruitment agencies and their offered personnel and
  • cruise lines and their cruise ships

(together the “Content”).

The legal relationship between MYCS and those business entities who want to offer Content to Visitors via the Website and therefore provide data for the supply, management, mainte-nance and verification of Content, such as information, art work, advertising, logos or photo-graphs or any other material (the “Clients”), is governed by these Conditions of Service.

Separate terms and conditions govern the relationship between MYCS and those who browse the site and make use of such Content (the “Visitors”).

Scope of the Conditions of Service
The legal relationship between a Client and MYCS is governed exclusively by (i) these Conditions of Service, (ii) any order form accepted by MYCS, (iii) the applicable service descriptions on the Website applying to the services to a Client (see Packages), and (iv) the Service Guidelines, each irrespective of any special or general terms provided, used, or declared to be used by a Client.
MYCS will enter into a business relationship with a Client only on the basis of these Conditions of Service. The Conditions of Service thus become binding as soon as a Client accepts them on order forms, in the course of registration / verification proc-esses or in any other form. Furthermore, it is understood that these Conditions of Service shall apply from the moment on that a Client is ordering and/or using one of the Services.
MYCS is not obliged to provide any of the Services to a (prospective) Client or to en-ter into a contractual relationship with such person. It lies within the sole discretion of MYCS whether or not to enter into a contractual relationship with a Client (such deci-sion will depend, in particular, on the assessment whether Client is operating a busi-ness appropriate for the Website).
In case that a Client is or becomes also a customer for other products and services offered by MYCS, the Conditions of Service shall only apply to the provision of the Services by MYCS. Any other legal relationships with MYCS shall be governed by a respective user or service agreement, respective terms & conditions (such as the Terms and Conditions for the use of the Website) or any other agreement that applies to a particular product or service which is offered by MYCS.
MYCS may change, amend, or reissue the Conditions of Service at any time. In order to become effective, such change has to be notified to the Client (via E-Mail to the competent administrator or comparable person in charge) with a notice period of 14 days. Any envisaged changes of the Conditions of Service will also be notified on the Website. By the continued use of the Services without raising an objection to an en-visaged change within the notice period, the Client agrees to accept the envisaged changes and to be bound by the Conditions of Service in their most current version. In case a Client objects to an envisaged change of the Conditions of Service, MYCS has the right to terminate the legal relationship with such Client with immediate effect.
The Services
MYCS offers the services to the Clients as they are specified in the Service Guide-lines and on the applicable service descriptions available on the Website (see Packages) (hereinafter the “Services”).
MYCS may use agents and/or sub-contractors to perform, or assist it in performing, Services on its behalf, should this be deemed appropriate or necessary by MYCS.
In case that the Client has to provide any information, data or other service in order to enable MYCS to perform its Services for such Client (the “necessary Services”), MYCS shall not be obliged to perform any Services or preparatory works until all nec-essary Services have been duly performed and/or delivered. Any content provided to MYCS in the course of necessary Services is not required to be returned to the re-spective Client.
Whereas MYCS shall use commercially reasonable efforts to improve and maintain the functionality of the Website, it remains within the free and sole discretion of MYCS to alter the look, design, style, infrastructure, environment, facilities, and functionality of the Website and the Services offered on the Website, without giving prior notice to the Client. To this respect, the parties acknowledge that MYCS may also remove a Service or a material part of a Service from the Website without providing a respec-tive substitute. MYCS will use reasonable efforts to inform a Client who uses a Ser-vice that shall be removed (e.g. via E-Mail to the competent administrator or compa-rable person in charge) within a notice period of 14 days before the removal of such Service. Any envisaged removals of Services will also be notified on the Website. A Client who has been using a removed Service shall be entitled to a refund of the funds paid for the period in which such removed Service was not available.
Remuneration
MYCS may offer some of its Services at certain times free of charge to certain or all Clients. Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, MYCS shall be entitled to charge a fee for its Services (the “Fee”) (this right also applies to Services which have been provided at a certain time free of charge).
The Fees payable for certain Services are set out and described in Packages and in the respective order form (including possible applicable taxes such as VAT).

MYCS reserves the right to change the Fees at any time. MYCS will use commercially reasonable efforts to inform the Client (e.g. via E-Mail to the competent administrator or comparable person in charge) of an envisaged change of the Fees within a notice period of 14 days. Any envisaged changes of the Fees will also be notified on the Website. The change of a Fee will only apply to future Services (e.g. in case of periodic Services, a changed Fee shall apply from the start of the subsequent payable period).
The Client expressly acknowledges that the continued use of Services for which the Fees have changed constitutes an acceptance of such change.
