  1. Service provided by Austrian Airlines

The Austrian family website is a platform that is free of charge for the user. It can be accessed via family.austrian.com.

Furthermore, the Austrian family website offers users the opportunity to participate in various promotions. The above services are offered to users in three different areas. For kids aged between two and ten, Austrian offers basic services consisting mainly of information about flying and traveling. For teens aged 11 to 17, Austrian offers an extended range of services with more interactivity in the TeensWorld. Insofar as the terms of use do not expressly refer to a specific area of the platform, they apply to all areas.

The information provided is also based on information received by Austrian from third parties. In individual cases, incorrect information may be presented despite careful preparation, selection and integration of content on the Austrian family website. Austrian can therefore accept no liability for the accuracy, completeness and up-to-dateness of the information provided by third parties.

For some of the services offered, such as the use of or participation in promotions and prize draws, special conditions are applied by Austrian. Users are obligated to read the relevant information and conditions in particular before using these services.

Links to other websites that are not operated by Austrian but by third parties can be found on the Austrian family website. By clicking on these links, users are transferred from the Austrian family website to the Internet pages of the third party. The operators of the linked pages that appear on the Austrian family website act under their own name and on their own account. Austrian is not a representative for any of the respective linked third parties. As such, individual conditions may apply on the linked pages. Users are obligated to read the relevant information and conditions separately.

  1. Availability of the Austrian family website

Austrian tries, wherever possible, to ensure that the Austrian family website service is available seven days a week while taking into consideration any maintenance and repair work that may need to be carried out. Austrian does not guarantee that the service is available at any time and without interruption in a secure, fault-free and timely manner. While carrying out maintenance and/or repair work and/or updates as well as during interruptions that Austrian has no influence upon, breaks in service may occur.

  1. Links to Third-Party Websites/Liability

Austrian and the partners linked to the Austrian family website operate their websites independently of one another and are each responsible for their own services.

An essential contractual obligation is an obligation whose fulfillment enables the proper implementation of the contract in the first place and upon the fulfillment of which the contractual partner regularly relies.
