4.1         By using UKC4H to facilitate the hiring of any caravan you understand and acknowledge that the resulting contract is between two Users of the website (the caravan owner and the hirer of that caravan).  UKC4H acts only to facilitate that contract and is not a party to it.  The terms of that contract are a matter for the parties to the contract and you should take care to ensure that these are appropriate for your needs.  Once the owner of the caravan and the hirer of that caravan have made contact with each other UKC4H plays no further part in the process and in particular will not get involved with regards to non-replies, disputed payments, cancellations, refunds, compensation or complaints of any nature whatsoever.  Neither the hirer nor the owner of any caravan shall have any claim whatsoever against UKC4H in respect of the hire or other arrangements made between them in relation to the hiring of any caravan.

4.2         Without prejudice to Clause 4.1 above, we may consider complaints that we receive and reserve the right, at our absolute discretion, to remove any User from the website if we believe that their conduct warrants this.  If we take the decision to remove any User from the website then we will refund to that User the unexpired portion of any fee which that User has paid to us (calculated on a pro rata basis)  LESS  an administration fee of £25.
