General Terms and Conditions of Business
for Celle Drilling
1. CONCLUSION OF CONTRACT
Participants can only register using the online registration form under “Registration” at www.celle-drilling.com. The registration is only legally binding with our written confirmation by email and mailed invoice. Participation in the Celle Drilling conference and exhibition requires prior payment of the participation fee before the event begins.
When registering on the day of the event, payment can be made on site in cash or by credit card. Upon registration, the participant acknowledges the GTC as well as the additional event conditions / special exhibition conditions.
The respective price paid at the time of registration entitles the participant to participate in the conference. As far as possible, the event organizer shall arrange a diverse conference program. Registrants are not entitled to participate in or carry out specific events. Instead, depending on the number of participants and their interests as well as the number of pre-registered attendees, the event organizer may adapt, shorten or cancel certain events. Other reasons for changing the event program might include the economic means of the event organizer or force majeure. The adjustments listed above as well as other changes to the event program do not establish grounds for a refund of the conference fee in whole or in part.
The trouble-free function of external data and power supply networks is not guaranteed.
The event organizer reserves the right to cancel the event in whole or in part for economic or political reasons or due to force majeure.
Participation fees shall be published separately.
Students must present credentials from a college or university and retirees must present the respective proof. If registration is made later than 7 days before the event is to be held, the participation fee shall be 50 € more than that listed above.
The price does not include VAT.
4. CANCELLATION FEES
If a registration for participation in the conference is cancelled later than 10 weeks and earlier than 14 days before the event is to be held, a cancellation fee of 50 € plus VAT shall be withheld per registered participant. In the event of a cancellation no more than 14 days before the event is to be held, the full participation fee must be paid. The point in time that the event organizer receives the cancellation determines if the deadline is met.
A substitute attendee can be named at any time at no cost, even on site at the beginning of the event.
The event organizer is only liable in cases of willful intent and gross negligence. Moreover, the event organizer is only liable for bodily injury, permanent health impairment or death inasmuch as the event organizer is directly responsible for it or is responsible due to culpable violation of significant contractual obligations. The liability for damages in the event that significant contractual obligations are violated is limited to the foreseeable, average damages typical for the contract. The total damages, inasmuch as they are not due to willful intent or gross negligence on the part of the event organizer, are limited to the sum insured by the event organizer.
Liability for compensation is excluded in all cases. A culpable breach on the part of the event organizer is considered the same as that of the organizer’s legal representative or agent.
The event organizer is not liable for damages caused by force majeure, political events or regulatory decrees.
Media recordings (image and sound) of lectures, workshops, trade fair stands and participants created at the event may be used by the event organizer as documentation and may also be shared with third parties (but not for commercial purposes).
If a participant does not consent to the publication of personal media recordings, the participant must inform the event organizer in writing at least 3 days before the event is to be held.
7. SEVERABILITY CLAUSE
If certain provisions of this contract are invalid or cannot be implemented or become invalid or cannot be implemented after the contract is concluded, the effectiveness of the rest of the contract remains unaffected. The provision used to replace the provision that is invalid or cannot be implemented should be valid, able to be implemented and achieve an effect as close as possible to the economic objective intended by the contractual parties in the provision that is invalid and/or cannot be implemented. The provisions above apply accordingly in the event that the contract proves deficient.
The event organizer is not liable for any insurance risk assumed by the exhibitor. Exhibitors are expressly informed of their option to provide their own insurance.
Claims by the exhibitor which are not asserted in writing by 2 weeks after the end of the event at the latest are considered forfeited.
The event organizer is not liable for damages caused by force majeure, political events or regulatory decrees. The conclusion of a contract regarding an exhibition space is not associated with entitlement to a specific exhibition space at the event. In general, the exclusion of competition is not permitted.
The exhibitor shall grant the event organizer a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use the exhibitor’s own logo during the event and during an appropriate period after the event concludes for follow-up reporting.
Celle is the place of fulfilment
and the court of jurisdiction.
