3. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
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").
The results of user searches are not exhaustive in respect of all offerings available on the Internet, and are derived from data compiled by us from the Merchants listed by it. The default order of presentation of offerings provided may depend on several factors, according to the type of search carried out:
- If you search by category, only those offerings from Merchants who have paid to be listed are likely to appear and the default classification mainly depends on the price paid by these Merchants.
- If you carry out a search via the search box (i.e. key word), the offerings from all Merchants listed (either in return for payment or free of charge) on the Website may appear and, in addition to the price paid, other criteria are taken into account in the default classification of offerings: popularity, relevance of the data of the Merchants listed in relation to your query or the response time of the Merchants' website.
The data is refreshed at intervals, depending on its type: this interval varies according to the Merchants and compliance with our technical requirements, the maximum being once every 24 hours, other than at weekends and on public holiday(s); refreshment in real time applies to searches in the hotel, car and flight categories of the travel section.
