On the event home page, participants have to click on "Register" or "Tickets" to get to the registration page for the event. Here, participants select the desired number of tickets and click on "Continue". In the next step, the participants enter their personal information in the registration form. By clicking on the "Continue" button again, each participant is asked to provide his billing address within the scope of collecting the "buyer and ticket details". After this, the payment options are shown. Each participant has the possibility to choose between "direct debit", "credit card" or payment via "PayPal". In addition, there is a choice of shipping methods. In a fourth step, the stored data can be checked and the ticket purchase can be confirmed by clicking on "Buy Tickets". The contract for participation in the event does not come into force until Amiando AG has confirmed the registration in writing by sending an e-mail to the participants. Any changes and/or supplements to the contract require the written worm. This shall also apply to a waiver of the written form requirement. 8. Payment options

a. Direct debit
The participants can pay by "direct debit".  To do so, they are asked to provide their bank details (account holder, account number, bank code and name of bank) in the third step of booking a ticket.

The promotional code must be entered by the participants in the registration form before clicking on "Continue" by clicking the button "Click here to enter the promotional code". The system automatically recognizes the promotional code and factors in the discount in calculating the final ticket price.

3. Cancellation policy

a. Cancellation notice
Participants may cancel their registration within two weeks in writing or by phone without specifying any reasons for the cancellation. They can do so by sending an e-mail with the ticket ID or by calling the hotline below. Here is the contact information:
E-Mail to: support@amiando.de
Customer hotline: 0800 – 264 26 36
The cancellation period begins upon receipt of these instructions in text form, but not before conclusion of the contract. The deadline also does not begin until ABOUT YOU GmbH has met its obligations under Art. 246 Sect. 2 in conjunction with Sect. 1 (1) and (2) of the Introductory Act to the German Civil Code (EGBGB) as well as its obligations under Sect. 312 g (1) sentence 1 of the German Civil Code (BGB) in conjunction with Art. 246 Sect. 3 EGBGB. To meet the deadline, it is sufficient to send the cancellation notice in due time.
b. Consequences of cancellation

In the case of a valid cancellation, both parties have to return the received goods/payments, including any benefit (e.g. interest) drawn from them. If the participant in unable to return and/or surrender the received goods as well as benefits (benefits of use) in whole or part or can only return the goods in a deteriorated condition, the participant shall compensate ABOUT YOU GmbH for the loss of value to the extent that the use or deterioration of the goods is due to their handling other than what is necessary to ascertain the nature and functioning of the goods. "Ascertaining the nature and functioning of the goods" shall mean the testing and trying out of goods to the extent possible and usual in a retail store. Goods that can be sent as a package must be sent back to us at our risk. The participant shall bear the shipping costs if the delivered goods correspond to those ordered, otherwise the return shipment shall be free of charge for the participant. Any obligation to reimburse payments must be met within 30 days. This period begins for the participant at the time his cancellation notice is sent, for ABOUT YOU GmbH at the time it is received.
–  End of cancellation policy-
c. Expiry of the right of cancellation
