This contract is concluded exclusively between the ticket purchaser and the organiser, on the basis of these terms and conditions and on the basis of MWF’s terms and conditions.
When using the services and products of MWF’s partner companies, the ticket buyer accepts the applicable terms and/or conditions of use of such partner companies.
2.2 Conclusion of the contract
2.2.1 Order from the buyer of tickets
The overview of accessible tickets, provided in the sales channels, is only valid as an invitation to an offer from the ticket buyer. The buyer of the tickets makes his choice through the sales channels. The ticket buyer makes his selection via the corresponding sales channel. The selection made is displayed in the shopping cart (online shop). By confirming the order, the ticket buyer confirms his mandatory offer for the purchase of the selected tickets. The buyer of the tickets is required to provide the necessary information exhaustively and correctly during the ordering procedure.
To place an order via the online store or in the mobile app (hereinafter “online order”), the ticket buyer must identify himself in the online shop with his username or email address and with his password (hereinafter “access data”); the user account corresponding to the “online account”).
The access data, communicated to the ticket purchaser, are intended for personal use by the ticket buyer and must be treated confidentially. All orders placed through the online account are assigned to the ticket buyer as the holder of the online account and are mandatory for the buyer.
2.2.3 Order Confirmation
When ordering via the online shop, the ticket buyer will receive an order confirmation by e-mail after the end of the order process. This confirmation is not yet valid as acceptance of the offer by MWF.
2.2.4 Acceptance by MWF
The contract for the purchase of a ticket between the ticket purchaser and MWF is concluded only when the tickets are sent, made available or delivered to the ticket purchaser. Shipping, accessibility, delivery or unlocking takes place only after receipt of payment from the buyer by MWF, regardless of the method of payment.
2.2.5 Custom Tickets
The organiser has the right to customise the tickets. For this purpose, it may print on the ticket the personal data of the person entitled to it. Only the person whose name appears on the ticket will have access to the reserved event. If a buyer buys tickets for more than one person, he will have to make sure that the personal data of all persons are indicated on the tickets in a complete and faithful manner.
The decision on the choice of the type of shipment belongs to MWF. The ticket can be delivered by e-mail with a download link to the PDF file of the print@home ticket (both by barcode and QR code; hereinafter “print@home ticket”).
The ticket buyer is required to check the tickets directly after receipt. In the case of personalised tickets, the ticket buyer is required in particular to check whether the personalised data is correct. The buyer of the ticket must notify MWF of damages to tickets sent electronically in relation to tickets ordered within 3 working days. If the purchaser of the ticket omits the said notification, the delivered tickets are valid as authorised (Art. 201 CO).
The profit and risk pass to the purchaser of tickets at the time of dispatch from MWF’s headquarters (Art. 74 (2) CO). The ticket buyer is responsible for keeping the tickets safe until the event. Replacement of damaged or lost banknotes is excluded subject to figures 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 and 2.10.3.
2.3.2 Electronic shipping for print@home tickets
After receipt of payment, the buyer prints the print@home ticket without changing its size, with a suitable printer, on white paper in DIN A4 format, via the link communicated with the order confirmation. The ticket buyer acknowledges that it is its own responsibility to have at its own risk all the technical equipment necessary for the reception and printing of the print@home ticket.
Print@home printed ticket must be kept carefully until participation in the event and must not present damage, dirt or other alterations during use, such as in the barcode area or machine-readable QR code, which would make it impossible or prevent entry control. If the print@home ticket presents such damage, dirt or other negative influences, the ticket buyer cannot assert a right of access to the event and/or the refund of the price paid by the ticket buyer.
The ticket buyer receives only one access authorisation for each ticket purchased. Any reproduction, copy, modification or imitation of the print@home ticket and any electronic distribution to third parties of the corresponding PDF file are expressly prohibited. But in case of loss or damage to the print@home ticket, the buyer may reprint the print@home ticket, knowing that he is aware that access to the event may be refused in the cases mentioned in 184.108.40.206. The damaged print@home ticket must be destroyed immediately. If the ticket buyer has already deleted the PDF file at the time of loss or damage, they can reprint the ticket in their online account. The ticket buyer is aware that the print@home ticket cannot be blocked. In this case, it is also the Regulation under 220.127.116.11 that applies.
The organiser may refuse access to an event if several printed tickets, reproductions, copies or imitations of a print@home ticket are in circulation and the owner of a printed ticket, copy or imitation of the respective print@home ticket has already had access to the event. In particular, the organiser is not required to check whether the identity of the ticket holder corresponds to that of the ticket buyer or to check the authenticity of the print@home ticket. If the owner of a print@home ticket is denied access for this reason during the access control, he is not entitled to a refund of the price paid.
2.4 No resale of tickets
Any exchange of tickets purchased for business or commercial purposes is prohibited. Violations of this rule may result in the loss of the service related to the purchased ticket and the rights to damages, as well as claims for restitution of profits vis-à-vis the original purchaser of the ticket and the persons who purchased the ticket. Persons who violate these rules may be excluded from the purchase and return of tickets. For resale via electronic platforms, MWF recommends the official resale platform fansale.ch. MWF assumes no responsibility for tickets sold through the platforms. Tickets that have not been validly purchased do not entitle entry to the event and MWF does not accept claims for reimbursement or liability in this regard.
2.5 Advertising and drawings
Without the express prior consent of MWF, the ticket buyer is not allowed to use the tickets, member packages and/or member tickets in its advertising intended for the general public and/or for sweepstakes.
The prices of tickets accessible through the sales channels or indicated or communicated include VAT (if applicable).
The selling price displayed in the online shop includes the price of the MWF ticket plus any service charges, excluding payment charges. The application fees or method of payment, are displayed in the shopping cart during the order procedure.
2.7 Return, refund, transfer and exchange
MWF is the contractual partner of the ticket buyer, responsible for the event or the provision of the service associated with the ticket. The refund, refund or exchange of tickets is not accepted by MWF.
This exclusive decision-making power of MWF also exists in case of force majeure (see figure IX below).
2.7.2 Transfer of personalised tickets to another person
Personalised tickets cannot be put in the name of another person.
2.7.3 Cancellation of an event or business closure
If an event is cancelled without replacement or if a business is closed in whole or in part, resulting in no longer being able to accommodate ticket purchasers, the tickets will be refunded in accordance with 2.8.6. The cancellation of an event or the closure of a business is independent of the duration of the closure and the concrete cause of the closure or cancellation of the event.
2.7.4 Specifications in the event of a move of the date of an event or modification of an event venue
If MWF decides to postpone an event or move an event venue, the ticket is valid for the postponed date or new venue, regardless of the reasons for the postponement. This also applies if the event is postponed or transferred repeatedly. In this case the tickets cannot be returned, refunded or exchanged. Any change in the date and/or location of the event, whether the event is organised on the new date with the same content, the same teams or with characteristics and criteria different from those of the initial event is considered a postponement.
2.8 Obligations of the ticket buyer when participating in the event
With the purchase of the ticket or by using the services of MWF the ticket buyer accepts these GTC as well as the general terms of sale, conditions of use or contractual terms of MWF.
By purchasing the ticket, the buyer accepts the provisions of safety, access, age and other rules of application of MWF as well as any admission conditions laid down by the authorities (e.g. vaccination certificate, negative test result etc.). The ticket buyer is responsible for compliance with these provisions and acknowledges that he may be excluded from the event without compensation in case of non-compliance with these provisions. In this case, there is no right to return tickets.
If tickets have been issued on a personalised basis, only the person named on the ticket will be admitted to the event. Security personnel shall have the right to carry out on-the-spot checks. Therefore, the ticket holder must be able to identify with an identity card. If the name on the ticket does not match the name on the identity card or if the name on the ticket is not legible, access to the event may be refused without any exchange and without any right to refund.
III. Contact tracing
