General Terms and Conditions governing the Participation in the
Conference Events to be held by Uhde High Pressure Technologies GmbH

1.            Scope

These General Terms and Conditions (“GTC”) shall apply to all contracts concluded with Uhde High Pressure Technologies GmbH (“UHPT”) regarding participation in the Conference Event (“EVENT”). Insofar as any agreements contrary to these GTC are made within the framework of the EVENT, these GTC shall take precedence. On registering, the participant accepts the GTC. Any assertion by a participant of his/her own GTC in contradiction hereof is herewith expressly precluded. Any deviations from these GTC are only valid if they have been expressly acknowledged by UHPT in writing.

2.            Registration and Conclusion of a Contract

Registration for the EVENT can only be made via the registration form provided in the corresponding booking portal. The registration shall be deemed a binding offer to enter into a contract. The contract shall enter into effect upon receipt of the confirmation of registration from UHPT. All registrations will be considered in the order in which they are received. UHPT reserves the right to deny participation in the EVENT without giving a reason.

UHPT or a contracted third party will be taking pictures and filming at the EVENT, and will also report thereon. By registering for the EVENT, the participant is in agreement that UHPT may publish these photographs and films free of charge. The participant agrees to the publication of photographs and film shots of his/her person without the need for his/her express permission.

3.            Terms of Payment

The participant shall pay the contractually agreed fee for participating in the EVENT by the due date in accordance with the invoice received from UHPT, stating the invoice number in full.

4.            Cancellation of a Contract

The participant may cancel the contract in writing up to forty-five (45) days prior to commencement of the EVENT, in which case eighty-five percent (85 %) of the participation fee will be refunded. In the event of a later cancellation or non-participation in the EVENT, one hundred percent (100 %) of the participation fee will be levied as a fixed charge.

5.            Cancellation of or Changes to the EVENT

UHPT is entitled to postpone or to cancel the EVENT for reasons for which UHPT cannot be held responsible (including, but not limited to, an insufficient number of participants, sudden unavailability of speakers with no chance of a substitute, force majeure). The participant will be notified in such case under the contact details given in his/her registration. In the event of cancellation, any participation fee already received will be refunded. This shall also apply should the participant be unable to take part in the EVENT on the new date set. Any other claims on the part of the participant are excluded. UHPT reserves the right to change speakers or to change the EVENT program. The participant may not derive any entitlement therefrom, including but not limited to, to cancel the contract or reduce the participation fee.

6.            Exclusion from Participating in the EVENT

UHPT is entitled to exclude participants from taking part in the EVENT in certain cases, including, but not limited to, default in payment, disruption of the EVENT.

7.            Liability and Limitation of Liability

UHPT shall only be liable for damages resulting from or in connection with holding the EVENT in the case of willful misconduct or gross negligence. In the case of slight negligence, UHPT shall only be liable for a breach of its fundamental contractual obligations, in particular, its main contractual obligations. To the maximum extent permitted by law, any further liability of UHPT is expressly excluded. This limitation of liability shall not apply to damages resulting from loss of life, injury or health implications due to a negligent or intentional breach of duty by UHPT or a legal representative of UHPT.

8.            Data Protection

The data provided by the participant on registration will be stored and processed exclusively for the purpose of arranging and holding the EVENT as well as for invoicing purposes. If, on registration or during the EVENT, the participant consents to his/her data being processed for other purposes, the data will be stored and processed for the purposes stated in each case. The data will not be passed on to third parties.

9.            Side Agreements and Severability Clause

Side agreements shall be invalid unless made in writing.

Should at any time one or more provisions of these GTC be found invalid, in whole or in part, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining part. Invalid provisions shall be replaced by provisions which come as close as possible to achieving the purpose intended by the parties.

10.          Governing Law and Place of Jurisdiction

This contract shall be exclusively governed by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the conflict of laws rules. If the participant is a commercial entity within the meaning of the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch), a juristic person under public law or a special entity under public law, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising directly or indirectly from the contractual relationship between the parties shall be Hagen, Germany.
