3. Purchasing tickets
The following provisions shall apply to the purchase of tickets (wheelchair, group and individual tickets) directly from the organiser.
3.1 Ordering and payment
Customers can purchase tickets via the Website, by email or by telephone. The overview of available tickets provided on the Website and by telephone shall serve purely as an invitation to the customer to make an offer. The customer makes his selection via the sales channel. In doing so, he submits his binding offer to purchase the selected tickets. The customer is obliged to provide all information necessary for the ordering process correctly and completely. It is the exclusive responsibility of the customer to submit ticket orders in a timely fashion prior to the date of the event.
The agreement on the purchase of tickets between the customer and the organiser shall only come into force when the tickets are dispatched to the customer. Tickets are dispatched – regardless of the type of payment – only after receipt of the customer's payment by the organiser or after charging of the credit card. In the case of prepayment, the payment must be received within the payment period stated on the invoice. The organiser shall decide at his own discretion whether and when tickets that have not been paid for by the payment deadline shall be released again for sale. In the case of credit card payments, by making a payment the customer accepts the relevant terms and conditions of the payment service provider. An administration fee shall be charged for each order of tickets. The decision to approve the means and type of payment and to set the amount of the fees shall be at the organiser's sole discretion.
Tickets are dispatched by priority post within five working days to the postal address provided by the customer. The organiser cannot be held liable for incorrect or delayed delivery of the tickets, for which he is not responsible for. The customer shall be obliged to check the tickets immediately on receipt. Damage to the tickets or discrepancies between the tickets delivered by post and those ordered must be notified in writing by the customer within three working days. If the customer fails to do this, the tickets delivered shall be deemed to have been accepted.
Benefit and risk shall pass to the customer at the time of dispatch from the head office of the organiser. The customer is responsible for keeping the tickets safe until the event. In the event of loss or damage, tickets cannot be refunded or replaced.
3.3 Return, Exchange and Use
The return and exchange as well as any reimbursement of tickets is generally excluded.
Any trade with purchased tickets for business or commercial purposes is prohibited without the express prior consent of the organiser. Infringements may lead to the loss of the service linked to the tickets purchased and to claims for damages and surrender of profits being made against the customer, involved third parties and/or further ticket purchasers. Persons who contravene these provisions may be barred from purchasing tickets in future.
The customer and/or third parties is/are not permitted to use tickets in advertising aimed at the general public and/or as prizes without the express prior consent of the organiser. If the organizer gives permission, any return or exchange of the corresponding tickets is excluded.
3.4 Postponement and cancellation of an event
If an event must be postponed or an event venue must be changed, the ticket and any additionally booked catering or additional services shall be valid for the postponed date or new venue regardless of the reason. Return and/or exchange is excluded.
If an event is definitely cancelled, the affected ticket must be sent back to the organiser within 30 days of the original date of the event. Only the effectively paid ticket price will be refunded. This amount will be credited to the bank or postal account indicated by the customer. For this purpose, the organiser requires the following information: Bank/postal account details (name, location), clearing number of the bank, IBAN, account number and account holder (first name and surname). Rebooking in the event of definitive cancellation of an event to another date is possible as long as stocks last, whereby this must also be applied for within 30 days of the original event date with the organiser by returning the ticket.
If an event must be cancelled for technical reasons, the total playing time shall be deemed to have been played when the first pause has been reached or the first half has been completed. A refund is excluded. If an event cannot take place due to an unforeseeable event which is beyond the control of the organiser (force majeure such as fire, natural catastrophe, war, terrorism, strike), the organiser cannot be held liable for this.
3.4.2. Bad weather at an open-air event
As long as the safety of the guests and participants is guaranteed, the organizer shall endeavour to perform the performance even in rain and bad weather and points out that there may be delays in the start of the performance or interruptions. Short-term postponements are possible at any time due to weather conditions.
If a performance has to be cancelled after 60 minutes, it is considered to have been played (no refund or replacement performance). In the event of a performance being postponed or cancelled in accordance with these provisions, any catering or additional services already consumed shall be deemed to have been purchased. On the alternative date, new catering or additional services can only be booked against additional payment.
For a performance that has been postponed or played for less than 60 minutes, a replacement performance will take place on the next reserved day. The postponement date will be determined by the organizer. The tickets remain valid at the replacement performance. A refund is excluded.
