Abstract: The paper discusses the possibilities of considering the platforms being liable within their position as an “intermediary” in the broadest sense in the triangle relationship of the platform, the supplier (service provider) and the recipient of services or goods (customer). Given the extension of possible interactions in the field of liability between the platform and its users, the liability issues discussed are limited in particular to defining in which cases, under what conditions and to what extent as well as in what position the platform also bears (should bear) liability for the performance provided by the supplier.

Key Words: Civil Law; Intermediary Platforms; Contract Liability; Liability of Intermediary; Predominant Influence of Platform; the European Union.
