Instead, the organiser can make a claim for reasonable compensation, depending on the respective participation fee (including eventual additional services), when the withdrawal from or non-participation in the event is not the responsibility of the organiser and is not a case of force majeure, for the event preparations and expenses (cancellation fees) in the period up to the date of withdrawal or non-participation. These cancellation fees are compliant with the followingparagraphs, taking into account the proximity ofthe date of withdrawal tothe contractually agreed start ofthe event, as a percentage ofthe participation fee (including any additional services booked).

13 Cancellation and termination by the event organiser
13.1 The event organiser may terminate the contract without noticeif the participant, despite proper warnings from the organiser, continues to disrupt the event. This also applies if the conduct of the participant grossly violates the terms ofthe contract to such an extent that the immediate termination ofthe contract is justified. The organiser reserves the right to retain the participation fee. The disruptive participant shall bear the costs of repatriation himself/herself. However, the organiser must make due adjustments to cost that take into account the value of any expenditure saved, as well as such benefits generated by the components not used by the participant and put to other meaningful use or any refunds received from service providers.
13.2 The organiser may cancel the event up to 5 weeks (from receipt by the participant) before the start of the event, should the minimum number of participants not be reached.

The notice of cancellation will be sent tothe participant immediately. The participant shall be immediately refunded the participation fee paid.
13.3 In the case of the organiser cancelling the contract, the participant shall be entitled to demand participation in another event of at least equal value, provided the organiser is able to offer such an event without incurring extra costs for the participant.

14.1 In the case of termination of the contract due to force majeure, we refer you to § 651j of the German Civil Code.
15.1 If a service is not fulfilled or not fulfilled according to the contract, the participant will be entitled to demand redress. The participant is obliged to inform the organiser immediately of any deficiency relating to the event. If the participant fails to do so on account of a fault of their own, no reduction in the participation fee will be possible. This shall not apply only in the event that the information is deemed recognisably hopeless or unreasonable for other reasons.
15.2 The participant is obliged to immediately inform the event management at the location of the event about their complaint. If no event management is available at the location ofthe event, the organiser should be informed of any deficiencies ofthe event at their place of business. Participants will be advised of the contact details of the event management or organiser in the service description or, at the latest, in the event documentation. The event management is responsible for providing redress, insofar as this is possible.However, they shall not be authorised to accept any claims made by the participant.
15.3 The event organisermay also provide for redress by rendering a service of equal or higher value. The event organiser can refuse to provide redress if this would involve unreasonable expenditure.
15.4 After returning back from the event, the participant may request a price reduction, if services were not provided in conformity to the contract and they did not culpably fail to notify the organiser ofthe deficiency immediately (without undue delay).
15.5 If the event is seriously impaired as a result of a deficiency, and the organiser does not provide redress within a reasonable period, the participant may terminate the contract in line with the statutory provisions – in their own interest, it is recommended that the participant put the notice of termination in writing in orderto document it as evidence. The same applies if the participant cannot be reasonably expected for good cause to participate as a result of a deficiency acknowledged by the organiser. The setting of a deadline for providing redress does not apply if redress is impossible or the organiser refuses to provide redress or if the immediate termination ofthe contract is justified in the special interest ofthe participant. If the contract is terminated in this way, the participant shall be entitled to repatriation.The participant shall only owe the organiser that part of the participation price which was allocated to the services they used, if such services were of interest to them.
16.1 Participants take part in events organised by Hotel Krone Igelsbergat their own risk.

16.3 Contractual claims for damages: the organiser’s contractual liability for damages, other than for personal injury, is limited to three timesthe participation fee, as far as the damage suffered was not caused wilfully or through gross negligence by the organiser.

16.4 Claims for damages based on tort: all claims for damages asserted against the organiser for tort that are not due to wilful acts or acts of gross negligence are limited with respect to damage to property tothe amount of three times the participation fee. These liability amounts apply per participant and event.
16.5 The event organiser shall not be liable for interruptions to services, personal injury and damage to property related to services for which they acted merely as agent and only mediated services rendered by an outside party (e.g. excursions, sports events, theatre visits, exhibitions, transportation to and from the specified places of departure and destinations), if these services were explicitly designated in the event description and the booking confirmation states that the services are rendered by an external party so that they are discernible to the participant as not being part of the service rendered by the organiser.
16.6 The organiser is, however, liable for services which include the transportation of participants from the specified place of departure for the event to the specified destination, interim transportation during the event and the accommodation during the event, if and insofar as the damage suffered by the participant was causally due to the organiser breaching their obligations to inform, advise and organise.
16.7 The participant is solely responsible for his participation in sports and other leisure activities. The participant shall inspect the sports facilities, equipment and vehicles themselves before using them. The organiser will only be liable for accidents which occur in the course of sports events and other leisure activities, when caused by them.The organiser recommends that participants take out their own accident insurance.
16.8 Each participant is individually responsible for arriving at the event destination in good time, unlesstheir late arrival is the resultof wilful or grossly negligent behaviour on the part ofthe organiser.

Claims asserted by the participant under §§ 651c–f of the German Civil Codefor losses resulting from fatal injury, bodily harm or damage to health, which were caused by wilful or negligent breach of duty on the part ofthe organiser or a legal representative or vicarious agent ofthe organiser, will lapse according to the statute of limitations after 2 years. This also applies to claims for compensation for other damages that arise from a wilful or grossly negligent breach of duty on the part of the organiser or a legal representative or vicarious agent of the organiser.
