Tickets must be kept in a safe place upon receipt and protected from damaging after printing, as illegibility of the information on the ticket, which is important for admission control, may result in invalidation of the ticket and consequent loss of the right of admission.

3.2. PERSONALIZED TICKETS: The ticket will be personalized during the ordering process. Cradle to Cradle NGO intends to grant access to the respective event only to the ticket holders. For individually personalized tickets, identification is generally required at the entrance. Admission will only be granted to the person named on the ticket, if he or she can prove his or her identity at the entrance by means of a valid personal document, a valid driver's license or any other means of proof agreed upon with the organizer. If the organizer offers the possibility to personalize the tickets individually at the time of purchase, the Purchaser shall be requested during the ordering process and shall be obliged to truthfully state the first and last names of the additional persons for whom the personalized tickets are to be issued, when placing the order.

3.3. BUYER-PERSONALIZATION: In case of purchase of several tickets, which are automatically personalized to the Buyer's name, all tickets will be issued to the Buyer's name ("Buyer-Personalized Tickets"). Admission to the event under presentation of a buyer-personalized ticket, which is not issued in the name of the visitor seeking admission, is possible for the visitor only in the presence of the person named on the ticket, if he/she can identify him/herself at the entrance by a valid personal document, a valid driver's license or another means of proof agreed upon with the organizer. The holder of the right to visit the event is the purchaser, who is, however, entitled to visit the event in company, whereby a separate ticket personalized to the purchaser's name is required for each accompanying person.

3.4. IDENTITY CHECK: The organizer is not obliged to check identity at the entrance (digitally and on site). He shall also be released from his obligation to perform towards the purchaser if he grants access to the event to another person presenting the personalized ticket.

3.5. MISUSE OF THIRD-PARTY DATA: The misuse of third-party data in the purchase of personalized tickets without their declared or presumed will may lead to blocking.

3.6. REPERSONALIZATION: Re-personalization of tickets is only possible in consultation with the organizer, provided that the purchaser requests the event data, order number, order data (e.g., date of order and means of payment used) as well as the name of the visitor originally noted on the ticket and the name of the new visitor. Upon re-personalization, the originally named person loses the right to visit the re-personalization can only be made no later than 24 (twenty-four) hours before the start of admission to the booked event.

3.7. LOST AND STOLEN TICKETS: If tickets are reported as lost or stolen, they may be blocked in accordance with the Organizer's GTC with the consequence that the right to attend the event expires.

3.8. MISUSEFULLY OBTAINED, LOST OR STOLEN TICKETS: Tickets acquired in violation of these GTC or for which there are reasonable grounds to believe that a violation has occurred may be blocked by the Organizer after considering the interests of the purchaser with the consequence that the right to gain admission to the event expires. There will be no refund of the purchase price or fees. Cradle to Cradle NGO can prove a higher damage, the buyer is allowed to prove a lower damage.

3.9. NO USE OF TICKETS FOR COMMERCIAL OR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES; UNAUTHORIZED DISTRIBUTION: Tickets are sold exclusively for private, non-commercial use. Any commercial or business resale of tickets is prohibited. The commercial sale of tickets is reserved solely for the respective organizer and its authorized distributors.

The transfer of tickets without the inclusion of these Ticketmaster GTC is not permitted. Ticketmaster or the respective partner for distribution reserves the right to block tickets affected by this and/or not to accept further ticket orders. This also applies in cases, where there is reasonable suspicion that you have used or will use automated programs to order Tickets. Subject to the imposition of a contractual penalty, a violation of the provisions of this paragraph will result in the loss of the access authorization without compensation, i.e., the ticket will lose its validity in this case.

3.10. PERMISSIBLE TRANSFER - PRINCIPLE: A private transfer of a ticket for non-commercial reasons, in individual cases in the event of illness or other prevention of the customer, is permissible, provided that there is no case of impermissible transfer in the sense of the GTC.

This entry requires the consent of the seller.

4.1. PRECAUTIONS: In the event of a culpable violation of one or more provisions under these GTC, the Seller shall be entitled to impose a contractual penalty on the respective Customer to be determined by the Seller at its reasonable discretion (§ 315 BGB), the appropriateness of which may be reviewed by the competent court in the event of a dispute.

AMOUNT: The amount of the contractual penalty shall be determined in particular by the number and intensity of the violations, the type and degree of fault (intent or negligence), the efforts and successes of the customer or ticket holder with regard to making good the damage, the question of whether and to what extent the customer is a repeat offender, and, in the case of unauthorized resale of tickets, the number of tickets offered, sold, passed on or used, as well as any proceeds or profits generated by the resale.
