Registration and conclusion of contract
Registration can be made via the Internet using the registration form provided in the event database on the homepage (http://www.governikus.besl-eventservice.de). The registration shall be deemed a binding contractual offer. The contract shall be concluded upon receipt of the registration confirmation by the BESL event agency. Registrations shall be considered in the order in which they are received.
Terms of payment
In the case of paid events, the participant shall pay the contractually agreed fee for the event (participation fee) in accordance with the invoice issued by the BESL event agency, stating the complete invoice number.
The participant may withdraw from the contract free of charge in writing up to seven (7) days before the start of the event. In the event of a later withdrawal or non-participation, 100 % of the participation fee will be charged as a lump sum. The flat-rate fee will not be charged if a substitute participant is named or if it can be proven that the loss would otherwise have been incurred or would have been less than the flat-rate fee. The relevant date for the withdrawal of the participant is the date of receipt of the declaration by Governikus KG.
Cancellation and changes of events
Governikus KG has the right to postpone or cancel an event for reasons beyond its control (e.g. insufficient number of participants, unavailability of the speaker at short notice without the possibility of a replacement, force majeure or similar). The participant will be notified of this using the contact details provided in his/her registration. In the event of cancellation, any participation fee already paid will be refunded. Other claims on the part of the participant are excluded. Governikus KG reserves the right to change speakers or to change the course of the event. The participant cannot derive any claims from this, e.g. withdrawal from the contract or reduction of the participation fee.
Exclusion from participation
Governikus KG is entitled to exclude participants from further participation in special cases, e.g. default of payment, disruption of the event. In the event of exclusion, the financial claim of Governikus KG is governed by section 4 of these General Terms and Conditions.
Governikus is liable for damages in connection with the implementation of events only in the case of intent or gross negligence. The limitation of liability does not apply to damages resulting from injury to life, body or health, which are based on a negligent or intentional breach of duty by Governikus KG. Furthermore, the limitation of liability does not apply to damages based on the violation of a so-called cardinal obligation (i.e. a contractual obligation that makes the proper execution of the contract possible in the first place and on whose fulfillment the participant regularly relies and may rely).
Privacy and Photo and film rights
The data provided by the participant during registration will be stored and processed exclusively for the purpose of event management, and in the case of events for which a fee is charged, also for the purpose of invoicing. If the participant consents to further data processing during registration or at the event, the data will be stored and processed for the purposes stated in each case. Data will not be passed on to third parties.
The event will be documented by photographers and a video team in order to publish the footage on the Internet and in the media for PR purposes after the event.
By registering, the participant accepts the conditions of participation and in particular also agrees that the photos and personal data relevant to the event as well as the data on the company named by the participant will be published in the list of participants and on the name badge for this event.
