Event bookings, pricing

(1) You can make event bookings to attend various types of events that we offer through our Site or our Services.

(2) Some of the events listed on our site or in our services are chargeable. When you make a payment on our Services, you agree that: (i) you are responsible for reading the full listing for the event before committing to booking it; (ii) you enter into a legally binding contract to book an Event when you complete the booking process.

(3) You can select the events you want to book and collect them in a shopping cart by making the appropriate selection (e.g. events, date) and clicking the relevant button. Our prices are listed on the Site or in the Services. We reserve the right to change our quoted event prices at any time (provided that you will only be charged the amount you agreed to prior to the price change) and to correct any inadvertent pricing errors with future effect. Further information on pricing and sales tax (VAT)/Value Added Tax (VAT) at the applicable rate and other applicable taxes, fees or charges is available on the Site during the booking process. As a non-profit association, we are tax-exempt and therefore do not report VAT.

(4) Before you click on the "Order with obligation to pay" button, all the events you have selected, including the total price, will be displayed again in a booking summary. You can then identify and correct any input errors before you issue your final, binding booking order. By clicking on the "Book with obligation to pay" button, you place a binding order for booking an event on the selected date. However, the order can only be placed and transmitted once you have accepted these conditions by clicking on the appropriate box and thus included them in your booking order.

(5) We will then send you an automatic acknowledgment of receipt for your booking order by e-mail, in which your booking order is listed again and which you can then print out or save using the appropriate function. The automatic confirmation of receipt only proves that we have received your booking order, it does not yet represent our acceptance of this order.

(6) The legally binding agreement on booking the events is only concluded when we send you a confirmation e-mail. We reserve the right not to accept your order. This does not apply where we offer a payment method - and you choose that payment method for your order - that initiates a payment transaction immediately (z. B. electronic transfer or real-time transfer via PayPal Giropay, Paydirekt). In this case, the legally binding contract is deemed to have been concluded when you have initiated the booking process, as described above, using the "Book with obligation to pay" button.
