General Terms and Conditions for participation in congresses, conferences and seminars organised by Konradin Selection GmbH (hereinafter referred to as “Selection”)

  1. General provisions
  2. Contractual parties

Selection’s range of services is aimed exclusively at businesses and merchants. Consumers as defined by law may not become contractual parties. When registering, consumers as defined by law shall undertake to indicate that they are consumers. Should such an indication be lacking and should Selection be unable to identify consumer attributes, the contractual party shall be treated as a merchant. Contracts with and registrations by consumers shall require the express written consent of Selection in order to b considered valid. Such written consent must state that the conclusion of a contract/participation by a consumer may be undertaken.

  1. Scope of application

For contracts governing participation in Selection events, the provisions on the registration form (e.g., printed brochure or online) and the following general contractual conditions shall apply.

A contract governing participation in Selection events shall only be entered into once Selection has confirmed registration to the participant in writing. Amendments and/or addenda to this contract must be made in writing in order to be legally valid.

Oral agreements shall only be valid upon written confirmation by Selection. The same shall apply to this written form clause.

  1. Cancellation of registrations by the participant
  2. a) General

You may cancel your participation in an event in exchange for a processing fee of €50.00 no later than four (4) weeks prior to the start of the event. For cancellations up to two (2) weeks prior to the start of the event, half of the participation fee shall be due, after which 80% of the participation fee shall be due unless a substitute participant is nominated by the same company. Booking changes shall be treated as cancellations in accordance with Sentence 1.

  1. b) Cancellation with discount agreement

If the Selection participant has been granted a discount, this discount shall only apply to performance of the contract. Should the participant cancel an event, the cancellation fee shall be calculated according to the full event fee.

  1. aa) Participant discount

In the event that the customer (company) has received a group participant discount, i.e. multiple persons from this customer (company) are participating, the following special provision shall apply: Section 2a) above shall apply to each individual participant who cancels. When billing the remaining participant fee, the group discount shall become null and void in its entirety. The full participation fee shall be charged for each remaining participant.

  1. bb) Event discount

In the event that the customer (company) has received a multiple event discount, i.e. one person from this customer (company) is participating in multiple events, the following special provision shall apply: Section 2a) above shall apply to each individual event cancelled. When billing for the remaining events, the group discount shall become null and void in its entirety. The full participation fee shall be charged for each remaining event.

  1. c) Deadline and form

To meet the deadline, cancellations must be received in writing by post, email or fax.

  1. Pricing and fees

The rates and charges (including cancellation charges) listed are net figures. The statutory value-added tax shall be added to each.

  1. Cancellation of events

Selection is entitled to cancel an event for financial or organisational reasons. In such a case, Selection shall refund any participation fees already paid. Further claims may not be derived from this unless something else results due to No. 5. Any cancellation or change fees for transport or accommodation booked by the participant shall not be reimbursed by Selection.

We would point out that it is possible to complete bookings at business rates with no cancellation fees with transport companies (DB and airlines).

  1. Liability

Unless the matter concerns essential obligations under this contract, Selection shall only be liable for itself and its vicarious agents for damages provably attributable to an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty under the contract but still considered typical damages in terms of predictability. No liability shall be undertaken should the start of the event be delayed or should the event be cancelled outright due to force majeure.

Selection shall assume no liability in the event of consequential damages due to possible incorrect and/or incomplete content of presentations and/or event documents.

  1. Changes to the event schedule

Selection reserves the right to replace or drop individual event presentations inasmuch as this does not affect the overall character of the event.

  1. Refusing a registration

Selection is entitled to refuse the registration for an event without providing grounds for such a decision.

  1. Use of event documents

Presentations and event documents shall enjoy the protection of copyright law. Rights of use shall only be transferred by express written agreement granting usufructuary rights.

Participants are not entitled to copy licensed material handed out for training and information purposes. Licensed material includes data processing programs and/or licensed databases in machine-readable form, including any associated documentation.

  1. Film and photo rights

With respect to all current and future media, event participants shall grant their irrevocable and non-remunerated consent for the event organiser to create, reproduce, transmit or have transmitted audiovisual recordings of their person that extend beyond the span of the current event and to use such recordings in audiovisual media.

  1. Specific provisions for special events and special terms

In addition to the aforementioned general provisions, the following specific provisions shall apply to each of the following event types.

III. Final provisions

If a contract is concluded with an entrepreneur (Section 14 of the German Civil Code [Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch – BGB]),

  1. a) the place of jurisdiction is Stuttgart;
  2. b) German law applies.
