The applicable keywords are: transparency, overview, connection, convenience and speed.
3. The use of the platform and access to the offered information and offered services is free of charge. This does not preclude the formation of agreements between the user and third parties for which the platform has been wholly or partially intermediary, for which these third parties owe a fee to Connect. Insofar as this compensation is passed on to the user in full or in part by these third parties, it declares that it agrees without reservation.
