It is not permitted, and its consequences will therefore be the exclusive responsibility of the user, to access or use the Website for illegal or unauthorised ends, with or without an economic goal and, more specifically and without the following list having an exhaustive character, it shall be prohibited to:

7. PURCHASING PROCESS
Bookings on the Website may be conducted in Spanish, English or German. Most of the fields are unrestricted, such that the Website does not have the means to identify or correct errors when details are entered, so any mistake made when entering such details will be the responsibility of the user.
The document formalising the contract whereby the customer acquires any tourist product or service via the Website will be sent to the user by email. This email will provide information relating to the contracted products and/or services, their reference number, all the information relating to the method of payment, conditions of cancellation, other useful information and, if applicable, the travel documents. Similarly, the document will be stored by Oceanbooking and the USER may, at any time, request the information he or she requires from the customer service team.
The purchase of any product will only become effective at the time that Oceanbooking levies the charge in a validated manner depending on the payment method chosen, it still being liable to cancellation by Oceanbooking up to that time.
The available payment methods are:
PAYMENT BY CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD. With debit cards the amount due will be debited automatically from the associated account; with credit cards the USER may have access to money without having funds in the associated account, and the amount will normally be charged at the beginning of the month following the purchase.
DIRECT PAYMENT AT THE HOTEL. The USER may make the payment directly at the hotel when this type of service is specifically allowed for. Oceanbooking will request the user’s credit card details ONLY AS A GUARANTEE. The hotel will only use these details to charge the cancellation fees in the event of cancelling the booking or non-appearance at the hotel in accordance with the terms and conditions of booking.
Not all these payment options will be constantly activated; it will depend on the type of product, how far in advance the booking is made and the cancellation conditions of the booking.
The act of requesting a booking entails a commitment on the part of the customer to authorise payment of the entire amount of the contracted product, service or combined journey.
USERS accept that they will get in touch with Oceanbooking via our Customer Service Department if they have any claim before making any arrangement with their bank or embarking upon any legal action.
The goal of this clause is not to hinder their right to embark upon legal proceedings in any court, tribunal or any other alternative form of conflict resolution. On the contrary, we wish to offer them a faster and economically beneficial route, which will save both you and ourselves time and money. In exchange, we undertake to give you a response within 30 working days.
The contact details of the Customer Service Department may be found in the lower part of the WEBSITE.
The prices published online include airport taxes. They do not however include local taxes - which are paid directly at the hotels - or the taxes to leave the country, which are paid at the airport.
