General terms and conditions

1. General

These General terms and conditions apply to the sale and delivery of tickets  by the NÖ Festival-Ges.m.b.H.. Differing terms of the buyer (hereafter also “customer“) are only valid if the NÖ-Festival-Ges.m.b.H. has agreed to them in writing beforehand. By placing an order, the buyer agrees to and is bound to the general terms and conditions. These general terms and conditions are also available on the web sites of the NÖ Festival-Ges.m.b.H. (www.donaufestival.at; www.glattundverkehrt.at; www.klangraum.at) and can be downloaded and saved by the customer. Services offered by the NÖ Festival-Ges.m.b.H. concern leisure activities and are effective at a certain point of time or within a clearly defined period of time (leisure services).

2. Advance ticket sale

Ticket orders are processed in the order of their arrival. Ticket orders can be placed in person at the offices of the NÖ Festival-Ges.m.b.H., Minoritenplatz 4, 3500 Krems-Stein, Austria (opening hours during specified advance sale periods can be found on the respective web sites), by phone (+43-(0)2732-908033), online at www.donaufestival.at; www.glattundverkehrt.at and/or www.klangraum.at; by  sending an (e)mail   (see address above) or fax (+43-(0)2732-908031) to the booking offices.

3. Realisation of the contract

The costumer's order is a binding offer, effective with the customer’s providing of all information required by the NÖ Festival-Ges.m.b.H. All customer information provided in connection with the order process will be treated as confidential and will not be passed on to third parties.  Within 14 days of receiving the orders, the Festival-Ges.m.b.H is free to either accept offers on ticket sales or reject them by dispatching an appropriate explanation, especially in the case of a recently occurred rise in price or possible mistaken errors in our sales brochures, price lists and other documents.  The NÖ Festival-Ges.m.b.H. cannot accept liability for any such rises in price or errors.

4. Prices and payment

All price specifications are pre-tax (incl. legal VAT). Expenses caused by the dispatch (postage) are charged seperately. Misprints and individual price changes are reserved. Possible import expenses have to be covered by the customer.
The ticket price is due for payment right after the conclusion of the contract.
Bookings for groups, schools and people who due to the geographic distance are unable to collect their tickets in advance at the box-office and who do not hold a credit card for direct debit by phone constitute an exception in this respect. These groups of people have to place their bookings in writing (email, fax or letter), the exact number of people has to be provided by four weeks before the event. Payment is made by payment form, paying into a bank account or collection at the box-office, in case of which the ticket price must have been received two weeks before the event. In case of the costumer’s failure to confirm and pay, the tickets will be cancelled. Payment at the box office is only possible in exceptional cases. Uncollected tickets placed at the box office will be charged. In order to be entitled to a discount (e.g. Club Ö1, adolescents, children, people performing military or civil service) a valid form of ID has to be presented when purchasing tickets at the box-office or, if tickets have been purchased by phone or email, when collecting the tickets on the night of the event. If no valid form of ID is presented, possible discount claims expire and the full price of the tickets has to be paid. Discounts can only be claimed at the time of the ticket purchase and will not be considered after. Only one discount each can be claimed.

5. Dispatch / Delivery time

The dispatch is carried out on account and at the risk of the buyer. A dispatch charge of EUR 4,00 (recorded delivery) applies. With orders by C.O.D. a charge of EUR 7,00 applies. The customer will verify his tickets right after receiving them and will immediately communicate possible reclamations. In case of a costumer being a contractor, he/she is obligated to, in the case of any other loss, immediately verify the tickets and to provide a notice of defects.

6. Payment methods

a) The NÖ Festival-Ges.m.b.H. accepts the following credit cards: Master Card, American Express, Diners Club, Visa, JCB. Payments in cash and by debit card (Maestro) are also possible.  Against an additional charge, the tickets will be posted or, alternatively, can be collected at the box-office.
b) Payment by C.O.D. on receiving the mail.
c) Payment by debit card - only possible at the Ticket office and at the box office

7. Exclusion of the right of return and exchange

The return and exchange of tickets is excluded, except in case of the cancellation of an event. There are no refunds on paid ticket prices. Line-up, programme changes as well as changes in the running order and beginning times are explicitly reserved and do not constitute a reason for the return or exchange of tickets.

8. Cancellation of an event

In the case of the cancellation of an event, the tickets can be returned to the organisers’ box offices or to the respective ticket offices up to two months after the date of the planned event.
In the case of the cancellation, postponement or change of programme, no related expenses whatsoever incurred (e.g. hotel, travel costs etc.) will be covered.

9. Open-air concerts

With concerts exclusively planned as open-air events, i.e. without an alternative form in the case of bad weather, ticket owners will receive the ticket price in the case of a cancellation due to bad weather from the first day after the concert. Refunds can only be given if the event has not lasted up until the break or 50 minutes after the beginning.

12. House rules

On request by members of staff, the valid ticket must be presented at all times. It is not allowed to occupy a seat other than the one specified on the ticket. In the case of the violation of the house rules, the visitor can be asked to leave the performance without a refund of the ticket price.

13. Late arrivals

In order to facilitate an uninterrupted concert experience for our audience, people who arrive late will only be admitted during concert or applause breaks on instruction by security.

14. Line-up, porgramme changes and/or changes in the running order as well as changes of beginning times

15. Intellectual property rights

Without special permit, audio and/or visual recordings before, during and after the performance or exhibition visit are prohibited for copyright reasons.
With TV, film or photo recordings, the visitor explicitly agrees to the usual utilisation of pictures, film and video recordings taken in the context of the performance/exhibition visit without financial gain.

16. Obligatory supervision

By purchasing a ticket, the visitor, in his role as an accompanying person of a person not fully capable to contract, is not absolved from his/her supervision duty and is liable for any damages caused by the omission of his/her duties.

17. Free protection against harmful exposure to noise

The visitor explicitly acknowledges that the danger of health damages cannot be excluded due to the high volume of the organised concerts.
Therefore, the organiser provides free ear protection against possible health-damaging noise exposure. Consequently, the organiser excludes any liability for possible health damages on the part of the visitor in case the visitor has not made use of the ear protection provided free of charge.

18. Consumer protection advice

Since the services provided concern leisure services according to the consumer protection law, the costumer is not entitled to a special withdrawal right with contracts closed through distant selling or with contractual statements made through distant selling.

20. Place of performance, jurisdiction, court of jurisdiction

Krems is the place of performance. Irrespective of special responsibilities on the part of the comsumer, the regional court Krems is the sole designated responsible court for any disagreements resulting from the contract at hand. Austrian law applies under the exclusion of the international principles on conflicts of law. The principles of the UN Convention on contracts for the international sale of goods do not apply.

21. Final clause

Should individual specifications of these general terms and conditions contradict the mandatory specifications (e.g. the terms of the consumer protection law), the remaining specifications of these terms and conditions still remain valid. We reserve the right to at any time change our general terms and conditions.
