General terms and conditions
Ticket request and Participants
§ 1 Scope of Application
1. For the participation at the event, organised and offered by the Tourism Association Kufsteinerland, Unterer Stadtplatz 11-13, 6330 Kufstein (hereinafter referred to as organiser), only these general terms and conditions (short: T&C) are valid exclusively. Deviating or opposing terms and conditions of the participant will not form a component of the contract – not even if those are not explicitly objected by the organiser, unless there is a formal approval by the organiser in written form concerning the validity of the terms and conditions stated by the articipant. The following T&C are valid for the full time period of the contractual relationship between the organiser and the participant as well as for any services related to the booking and participation at events hosted by the organiser.
§ 2 Contract Formation
1. The contract about a participation over the full time period of the event comes into existence through the transmission via mail and the corresponding acceptance. The acceptance by the organiser has to be in written form and happens through mail submission. Any booking, thus ticket purchase, both via the website’s booking system and mail correspondence, is binding. The purchase confirmation is sent automatically via mail. Failed receipt of the automatic mail does not release the purchaser from their obligations. It is within the discretion of the organiser to refuse any purchases which were not made via the electronic booking system without reasoning. Whenever a contract is formed in any other way than the electronic one, the valid legal terms are applicable. If the booking is made by a private person, the participation at the event is seen as a leisure time activity and a special right of withdrawal from the purchase as part of the Act on Off-Premises and Distance Contracts is not valid.
§ 3 Payment, Cancellation and Transfer to a Third Party
1. All prices stated on the website are gross prices in euro. The organiser has the right to refuse the participant’s access to the event in case of a non-settled invoice. In case of default the organiser can charge 12% (in words: twelve percent) of default interest on the base rate. Cancellations, thus a refund, is in line with § 2 not feasible. Transfers of tickets to a third party are possible. The ticket transfer as part of lotteries or sweepstakes that the purchaser wants to perform analogously or digitally, is only possible after consultation with the organiser. The organiser has the right to refuse the participant’s access to the event if the ticket was acquired through non-authorised sweepstakes. The data provided in the course of a ticket purchase can be modified digitally until the given deadline. In case of delayed changes made to the data the organiser has the right to charge handling costs of 15€ (in words: fifteen euros) per modified data set.
§ 4 Limitation of Performance and Liability
1. All services on the organiser’s side that come into existence through contractual formation are restricted to the staging of the event. The organiser cannot be held liable for the quality of speeches and presentations and especially not for the absence of speakers as well as the course and content of the event. Furthermore, the organiser assumes no liability for the accuracy and integrity of conveyed information within speeches and presentations. There is no claim for participants on specific parts of the programme and/or speakers. The organiser can only be held liable for compensation in case of culpable negligence and/or intent. Moreover, the organiser assumes no liability for loss of or damage to items that have been brought to or acquired at the event. Any liability for personal injury is excluded. Lost acquisitions cannot be replaced.
§ 5 Behaviour at the Event
1. Unless the participant was granted access to the event through a partnership agreement of the Tourism Association Kufsteinerland, any unusual active advertising for themselves or a third party at the event is prohibited. All forms of advertisements are unusual if they are granted by the organiser to its partners in return for payment, such as the installation of an exhibition stand or the distribution of brochures, the provision of sampling products or the serving of beverages. In case of violation of this clause, the organiser has the right to charge a contractual penalty of 5,000€ (in words: five thousand euros) and to exclude the participant from the event. In this case the participant cannot assert a claim on reimbursement of costs. Any other claimed damages are not affected by this.
2. If the participant behaves indecently, illegally or even harmfully to the organiser, they can be excluded from the event by the organiser. In this case, the participant cannot assert a claim on reimbursement of costs either. The organiser has the right to claim further damages.
§ 6 Copyrights
1. Any unauthorised replication, adaptation or other utilisation of any data published by the organiser is only permitted after written approval of the organiser. Any additional replication, adaptation, distribution or public display poses a violation against copyrights.
§ 7 Changes
1. The organiser has the right to make changes to programme, speakers, location and all organisational agendas connected with the event also at short notice.
§ 8 Student Ticket / Start-Up Ticket
1. Student tickets can only be purchased by persons who will not have turned 26 by the time the event takes place. An officially approved photo identification has top be carried at all times and potentially shown before or during the event upon request. Participants that carry an invalid or no ID at all have to pay additional charges for a regular ticket of the current rate that is valid at the time of the event. In case this is not possible, the organiser has the right to refuse the participant’s access to the event without any reimbursement of costs. Participants that are in possession of a Student Ticket are seen as private persons when booking, hence the ultimate sentence of § 2 of these T&C is to be applied.
2. Start-up tickets can only be purchased by persons who have founded a business up until three years ago and are still entrepreneurs or self-employed at the time of the event. A commercial register report has to be carried at all times and potentially shown before and during the event upon request. Participants that carry an invalid or no commercial register report at all have to pay additional charges for a regular ticket of the current rate that is valid at the time of the event. In case this is not possible, the organiser has the right to refuse the participant’s access to the event without any reimbursement of costs. Participants that are in possession of a Talent Pass are seen as private persons when booking, hence the ultimate sentence of § 2 of these T&C is to be applied.
§ 9 Personal Data
1. Upon making contact with the operator (for example, by contact form or email) the following user data will be saved for processing of the inquiry and also in the event that connection problems are involved: Salutation, first and last name, postal address, email address, telephone number and data related to the inquiry: The duration of the visit, requested lodging category, number of accompanying children and adults, age of children and other individual information.
The personal data collected in this manner will be deleted by the operator within three years after completion of processing of the inquiry.
§ 10 Law, Venue, Severability Clause
1. The venue for all disputes, which could arise in connection with partnership agreements and these general terms and conditions, is Kufstein. For all legal relationships between the Tourism Association Kufsteinerland and its partners Austrian law is applied exclusively. In case that individual contractual terms are void or unfeasible or become void or unfeasible after contract formation, the effectuality for the rest of the contract is not affected. Void or unfeasible terms will be replaced by effective and feasible regulations from which the impacts come closest to the economic objectives, which were pursued by the contractual parties with the void or unfeasible terms. The terms above are valid for the case that the contract proves to be incomplete. In case of translation of the terms to other languages and resulting disagreements concerning their interpretation, the German version is applicable.
