By accessing the Website or using the Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms of Use, so please read them carefully and if necessary print out and save a copy of them. If you do not accept these Terms of Use, you must immediately cease using the Website and/or Services.

In these Terms of Use “you” means the individual accessing the Website or using the Services and “Kelkoo” or “we” or “us” means Kelkoo.com (UK) Limited of 6th Floor, Portland House, London, SW1E 5BH, except where a Service is provided by another Kelkoo group company in which case such references shall be references to that Kelkoo group company.

2. CHANGES TO THESE TERMS OF USE
We are constantly looking for new ways to improve the Website and Services we provide to you. We therefore reserve the right to amend these Terms of Use at any time. All such changes will take effect once they have been posted on the Website and you will be deemed to have accepted any such changes by your use of the Website or the Services from such time.

3. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
Overview
We provide you with a number of online resources, including but not limited to search functionalities using key words or product categories, content, shopping merchant and product reviews, buyer’s guides and other communication tools (the “Services”) to allow you to find and compare listed products offered on the websites of a number of third parties (the “Merchants”).

How does Kelkoo work?

We deal direct with the brands you trust
Kelkoo works in partnership with thousands of websites and stores across Europe so that you can browse and compare their results all in one place. We work with a large number of companies so that you should always find a good range of prices, but we can’t guarantee that every product a website/store sells will be included on our site.

We keep a close eye on customer service
We care about your shopping experience, so if we hear that one of our Merchants is giving bad service we will raise this with them. If there are further complaints we may remove them from our results.

We like our results to be accurate and up to the minute
In the case of flights and hotels, we get real-time information so you know you can rely on the very latest prices and availability. For shops and online stores, we make sure their information is updated typically every few hours and at least once every 24 hours so that the price you see is what you get on their website. If they have changed a price only minutes earlier, you may find a different price but we’re always working to avoid this happening.

You choose how your results are sorted
You can control the order that results are presented in, whether by price or relevancy. Relevancy takes into account which results most closely match your search and the popularity of those results with other users, amongst other criteria.

Buying from Merchants
If you wish to buy the listed product you have selected, you should visit the website of the Merchant of your choice. When you use the services offered by a Merchant, and in particular, when you visit their website via a link from the Website to buy a particular product from it, you are bound by their terms of use.

We are neither acting as agent for such Merchants nor selling, reselling nor licensing listed products. We will not be party to any transaction or contract with any Merchant that you may enter into for the purchase of listed products and we have no liability in respect of listed products. You agree that you will contact the Merchant or seller of the products directly in relation to questions, complaints or disputes you have in respect of any products and you will not involve us in any dispute between you and any third party.

Advertisers
We may also introduce you to certain partners and the services they offer, notably in the form of integrated services (e.g. classified advertisements). We may also display promotional links on the website; these are also known as sponsored links, advertising messages or promotional offers, which you may find yourself prompted to view while using the Website.
