BUSINESS AND PARTICIPATION TERMS AND CONDITIONS

TAB different GmbH (hereinafter: TAB)

 

Exclusively the following Terms and Conditions of Business and Participation (hereinafter: Terms and Conditions) shall apply to the booking of and participation in the G-Class Experience events organized by TAB and to the business relationship between TAB and the Customer:

1. Formation of the contract

1.1 The images of the events in the online shop do not represent binding offers, but are merely non-binding examples.

The Customer submits a binding offer to TAB to take part in the selected event on the basis of these Terms and Conditions. TAB will inform the Customer whether the offer has been accepted or declined by sending notification of confirmation of rejection. The contract is formed once the declaration of acceptance has been received. The text of the contract including these Terms and Conditions shall be sent to the Customer by TAB on a durable medium (e-mail or paper printout) along with the declaration of acceptance or in a separate e-mail.

1.2  To submit an offer, the Customer must first select on one of the events, then select the date and number of participants, and any additional services. When the Customer has entered their personal details, payment details, accepted these Terms and Conditions, and then clicks the ‘Place binding order’ button, they submit their binding offer to TAB. The retrieval, printout and storage in reproducible form of the booking, the terms and conditions of participation as well as the privacy policy are possible prior to the conclusion of the contract. The text of the contract and the registration data will be stored by TAB, although they will no longer be accessible online once the offer has been submitted. Only the terms and conditions of participation applicable at the time of retrieval and the data protection information are available on the website.

1.3 The Customer can also purchase a voucher to participate in the events offered. This voucher is issued for a certain type of event and entitles the holder to take part in this event at an available time to be agreed upon with TAB.

2. Consumer rights

The Customer is generally entitled to a fourteen-day right of cancellation if the Customer is a natural person and the contract is concluded for a purpose that cannot be attributed to the Customer’s commercial or self-employed activity.

There is no right of cancellation if the contract concluded with TAB provides for a specific date or period for the provision of the service owed (for example, setting a specific date when registering).

In the event of cancellation, any voucher provided shall lose its validity. It is therefore not necessary to return the voucher and the voucher will be returned at the Customer’s own expense if necessary. Invalid vouchers must be destroyed immediately and may no longer be used.

CANCELLATION POLICY

The right of cancellation

You have the right to cancel this contract within fourteen days without giving any reason.

The right of cancellation lasts fourteen days from the day on which the contract was formed.

In order to exercise your right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel this contract by means of a clear declaration (e.g. in a letter sent by post, or in a fax or email).

In order to comply with the cancellation period, it is sufficient that you send the notification of your exercise of the right of cancellation before the expiry of the cancellation period.

The consequences of cancellation

If you cancel this contract, we shall reimburse you all payments we have received from you, including delivery costs (with the exception of additional costs resulting from the fact that you have chosen a type of delivery other than the standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and no later than within fourteen days from the day on which we received the notification of your cancellation of this contract. For this repayment, we will use the same means of payment that you used for the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise with you; in no case will you be charged for this repayment.

If you have requested that the services begin during the cancellation period, you shall pay us a reasonable amount corresponding to the proportion of the services already provided up to the time you notify us of the exercise of the right of cancellation with respect to this contract compared to the total scope of the services provided for in the contract.

END OF THE CANCELLATION POLICY

3. Payment due date

3.1 Upon conclusion of the contract, the participation fee is immediately due in full.
