The following General Terms and Conditions (T&C) apply exclusively here. ArtNight will not accept any different terms and conditions of customers, unless ArtNight has explicitly agreed that they shall apply. The planning and organisation of events on behalf of business customers shall, by contrast, be subject to the General Terms and Conditions of ArtNight GmbH for event organisation.
- Services and products
2.1 The events offered by ArtNight shall either be carried out by ArtNight itself or by business partners of ArtNight (hereinafter: Partners). ArtNight shall, however, be the sole contracting partner of the Customer. The Customer may purchase tickets and vouchers at www.ArtNight.co.
2.2 A ticket entitles the holder of the ticket to participate in the specific booked event on the date chosen at the time of purchase. It shall only be possible to change the booking to another event or another date under the conditions given below in Paragraph 11.
2.3 A voucher is a voucher with a nominal value in euro. The holder is entitled to use the voucher as a means of payment to purchase tickets via www.artnight.co.
- Conclusion of contract, storage of the contract text
3.1 You do not have to register in order to place orders via www.ArtNight.com. The Customer must truthfully provide all information marked as mandatory during the order process. The provision of non-mandatory information is voluntary.
3.2 The presentation of the events on www.ArtNight.com does not represent a legally binding offer in the sense of Section 145 BGB (German Civil Code), but rather a non-binding online catalogue.
After entering his/her personal data in the course of the order process, the Customer gives a binding order for the selected tickets and/or vouchers by clicking the Order button in the final step of the order process. Before the order process is concluded, a confirmation window will thereby be shown to the Customer with the details of his/her booking. This window allows the Customer to check and correct the details entered. Immediately after submitting the order, the Customer will receive an email confirmation indicating that the order has been received. This does indicate that the order has been accepted, however, but only serves to inform the Customer that ArtNight has received the order.
The contract only comes into effect when ArtNight confirms the Customer’s order by means of an additional email that includes the invoice (confirmation of the contract). ArtNight is entitled to accept the Customer’s order within three working days.
3.3 In the case of orders that are made via www.ArtNight.com, the order is stored by ArtNight along with the order data entered by the Customer, and can be requested from ArtNight. As part of the order confirmation, the data of the order is also sent to the email address entered by the Customer.
- Requirements for participation
4.1 Participation in certain events requires certain personal aptitudes (e.g. age or state of health). The Customer can find these requirements in the respective event description. The Customer is himself responsible for ensuring that he, and/or other participants for whom he is buying tickets, meet these requirements.
4.2 Persons who do not meet the relevant requirements for participation are excluded from participation in the event. Reimbursement of the purchase price due to non-fulfilment on the part of ArtNight is excluded in such cases.
4.3 Participation in certain events is tied to a certain minimum or maximum number of participants. If the necessary minimum number of participants for an event is not reached, ArtNight is entitled to cancel the event no later than five days before the event. Customers who have bought tickets for the event may, according to their preference, either change their booking to another data at no extra charge, request a voucher to the value of the booked event, or request a refund of the purchase price paid. If the maximum number of participants at an event is exceeded, ArtNight is entitled to not accept a booking.
- Redemption of vouchers
5.1 Where nothing else has been agreed, vouchers may be redeemed within the statutory limitation period of three years (period of validity). This period shall begin at the end of the year in which the voucher was purchased.
5.2 If the price of the event to be booked (tickets) exceeds the value of the voucher, the Customer must pay the difference in the course of the order process. If the value of the Voucher exceeds the price of the event to be booked (tickets), the difference shall remain on the voucher.
- Rights of the Customer when buying vouchers
Vouchers are freely transferable, and may be redeemed by their respective holders. Commercial resale is prohibited. There is no repayment in cash.
- Delivery and shipping costs
7.1 Tickets or vouchers may be delivered by email as a PDF file or by post (gift letter) to the delivery address provided by the Customer.
7.2 Delivery by email is free of shipping costs. ArtNight can calculate shipping costs for delivery by post. The amount of the respective shipping costs are summarised under dispatch information.
7.3 Deliveries by post shall be carried out within the stated delivery time. If the Customer chooses the cash in advance payment method, the delivery time shall be calculated from the time at which ArtNight receives the payment.
- Prices and payment
8.1 The prices given on ArtNight.co are total prices including the applicable statutory VAT, and excluding any shipping costs if postal delivery is selected.
8.2 The Customer may choose to pay with any of the payment methods stated in our range of offers.
8.3 If the Customer chooses to purchase on account, the payment shall become due when the contract is concluded and the invoice received. If the Customer fails to pay within 30 days of the payment falling due, the Customer shall automatically be in default of payment; this shall only apply to consumers if there is a corresponding indication in their invoice.
- Retention of title, right of withdrawal in the event of non-payment
Tickets and vouchers that have been issued shall remain the property of ArtNight until they have been paid for in full. If payment is not received within the respective payment period, ArtNight is entitled to cancel or block the relevant tickets or vouchers, without the need for a separate notice period or reminder from ArtNight. Any further rights of ArtNight shall remain unaffected.
