§ 2 Concluding contracts through our website

For more details of concluding the contract, customers may consult the General Terms and Conditions of Business of CTS EVENTIM AG & Co. KGaA which apply accordingly, and which they must accept as part of the ordering process. This also includes further information about meeting our disclosure obligations in connection with distance selling contracts and e-commerce contracts.
§ 3 Concluding contracts other than on our website
The customer’s order by telephone, letter, fax or e-mail represents a binding offer to conclude a purchase contract which we will accept by a simple confirmation over the phone, by sending a separate e-mail confirmation or by sending the entry tickets within three working days.
§ 4 Prices, despatch costs and delivery, collection
(1) The prices stated on our web pages include VAT at the statutory rate and other price components, and are subject to postage charges if tickets are sent by post.

§ 6 Statutory exclusion of the right of revocation or the right of withdrawal
The regulations on the right of revocation or the right of withdrawal accruing in principle to consumers in the case of remote sales contracts will not apply here in conformity with § 312 b Para. 3 No. 6 BGB [Civil Code] for the sale of entry tickets for concert events at fixed dates, i. e. there is no right of return or right of revocation for the entry tickets ordered after the customer’s offer.

The customer will in this case be entitled to withdraw from the contract. Section 1 will apply accordingly.
(4) Special conditions for dinner bookings: should a guest arrive later than 45 minutes after the announced start of the dinner, we unfortunatley can not offer any catering services to them. The dinner appointment will henceforth be treated as missed. We cannot offer any reimbursement or credit notes.

§ 10 Limit of liability
The following exclusions and limits of liability will apply for our liability for the payment of damages, regardless of other legal preconditions for a claim:
(1) We will be liable if we are guilty of intention or gross negligence. For simple negligence we will only be liable in the case of a breach of an obligation the fulfilment of which renders possible the proper implementation of the contract, and on the observance of which the contract partner may normally rely. Otherwise liability for the payment of damages for damage of all kinds, regardless of the basis of the claim, including liability for culpability when the contract is concluded, is excluded.
(2) If we are liable for simple negligence in accordance with paragraph 1, our liability will be limited to the damage with which we must typically have expected to arise from the circumstances known at the time of concluding the contract.
