Terms and Conditions
The payment for a registration must be fulfilled within 7 days of the registration. If no payment is received within that period, the registration will be deleted. Payment can be done directly on the website or by wire transfer. If payment is done outside of Europe by wire transfer make sure to use OUR and pay all costs. Do not share costs (SHA or BEN). Alternatively, add 0,1% to the amount you pay with a minimum of € 10,-. Our bank will deduct these costs for payments received from outside the IBAN system. Your registration will only be valid when the amount received by us covers the cost.
Upon cancellation by the participant, the following percentage of your ticket will be reimbursed, depending on the cancellation date:
- Before May 1st 2023: 75%
- Before June 1st 2023: 50%
- Before August 1st 2023: 25%
- After that: 0%
To cancel your registration, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name, email address of registration, registration confirmation number and bank details.
In case the event is cancelled due to force majeure (such as Covid 19 measures), the organisation is committed to using all funds that are not yet spent or are refundable, to compensate the participants. From these funds, all participants will be compensated an equal percentage of their fee.
Transfer of registration
A registration for the event can be transferred to another person until two weeks before the event, without a charge. To do so, please submit the details in our Ticket selling form. You must arrange the payment between you and the recipient yourself.
If you book a room with multiple guests, only one of you needs to book and pay for the room. It is then your responsibility to arrange the payment with your roommates. The names of the people staying in the room must then be listed on your profile page. You can book a room for fewer persons than listed, but not for more. If you bring children, please check with the hotel. In all cases you can change the names of the guests until 2 weeks before the event.
Hotels that can be booked through the website have different cancellation policies. Please check the final cancellation date on the hotel detail page under Accommodations. If none is listed, the final cancellation date is April 1. When you have booked and paid a room, and cancel before the final cancellation date, we will refund the total amount minus the bank transaction cost within 30 days. To allow us to do so, please make sure you enter your bank details on your profile.
When booking a room through the website, the hotel room must be fully paid through our payment system to confirm your booking. We must have received your payment within 7 days of the date of booking and before the latest date of reservation possible for the hotel. We will transfer the money to the hotel. In the unlikely event that the reservation needs to be cancelled by the hotel, it is our responsibility to get a refund from the hotel and transfer the money back to you within 30 days of receiving it.
