2. Scope of our service

These pages, native content and infrastructure of these pages, and the online reservations service provided on these pages and through the website (“Happy Bellyfish”) are owned, operated, and provided by Creators Company LLC (“us”, “we” or “our”) and are provided for you subject to the terms and conditions set out below.

Through the website, we and our affiliate [distribution] partners provide an online platform where various service providers (“partners”) of cooking classes, nutrition courses, food tours, culinary holidays, and other services  can advertise their services for reservation and through which visitors of the Happy Bellyfish website (“users”) can make such reservations. By making a reservation through Happy Bellyfish, you enter into a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with the service provider with whom you book an activity.

From the point at which you make your reservation, we act solely as an intermediary between you and the partner, transmitting the details of your reservation to the relevant partner and sending you a confirmation email for and on behalf of the service provider.
