III. Conclusion of the contract; Contents
The services offered by ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency at www.concertvienna.com represent a non-binding request for the customer to make a binding offer for the services offered.
By ordering tickets (in particular via the online booking platform, by telephone or email), the customer submits a binding offer to ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency to procure tickets for events between the organiser and the customer for the customer.
ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency will acknowledge receipt of the customer's order by sending confirmation to the email address provided by the customer and check availability of the tickets. ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency will then endeavour to obtain the ordered tickets from the organiser but is unable to guarantee that the procurement will be successful. ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency will notify the customer whether the ticket(s) is/are available in a separate email. The contract between the customer and Concert Vienna Online Ticket Agency shall be concluded only by sending the notification email by which ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency confirms the availability of the ticket(s).
Any travel arrangements made by the customer (arrangements regarding travel and stay such as trip and hotel bookings, travel tickets) and any costs incurred by the customer as a result shall not become part of the contract.
ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency will debit the amount to be paid by the customer by way of the payment method chosen by the customer, with the customer being required to pay in advance and the tickets being delivered by ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency only after the amount has been debited from the customer’s account.
Debiting the ticket price will be done via the means of payment chosen by the customer (IV.). If there are indications of negative creditworthiness of the customer, ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency will be entitled to restrict the payment method to payment in advance by money transfer.
If ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency is unable to obtain the ticket(s) ordered by the customer, ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency will refund the final price previously paid by the customer for the tickets, including service and processing fees.
Ticket orders placed by the customer are legally binding.
ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency makes reference to the provision of Section 18(1) No. 10 of the Austrian Act on Distance and Off-Premises Transactions [Fernabsatz- und Auswärtsgeschäfte-Gesetz/FAGG], according to which there is no statutory right of withdrawal for the consumer with respect to distance contracts or contracts concluded off-premises for services rendered in connection with leisure activities, provided that in each case a specific date or period of time is contractually stipulated for performance of the contract by the provider. When ordering tickets for events the consumer therefore has no statutory right of withdrawal under the FAGG.
Requests expressed by the customer during the ordering process will be fulfilled by ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency where possible but are not binding on ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency.
When ordering via the online booking platform the customer has no option to personally select the seats within the price category chosen. If not all requested seats are available next to each other, the customer will be given the tickets in groups of at least two adjacent seats. Should the desired price category or the number of seats requested by the customer no longer be available or not be in immediate proximity of each other, the customer will be notified and informed of alternatives.
IV. Means of payment
ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency accepts the following means of payment:
Credit cards: Diners Club, Visa, Master Card Verified by Visa, Master Card SecureCode
V. Ticket collection / Provision of tickets:
Depending on the event, the following ticket collection options are available:
• Collection from the box office of the relevant venue on the day of the event by the customer, with ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency specifically pointing out that such collection may require the presentation of a printed booking confirmation and/or identification card by the customer;
• Print@Home ticket (=eTicket): in this case the booked tickets may be retrieved online; it is the customer's responsibility to print out the booked tickets and have them ready before and during the event.
Up-to-date event data must be verified by the customer on the day of the event. ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency is under no obligation to inform the customer of any changes to the event.
When gaining access to an event, the Print@Home ticket that is used first and its unique identifier is the valid ticket. Subsequent tickets with the same identifier will automatically be invalidated by redemption of the first ticket and will not entitle the holder to attend the event.
As a precaution ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency points out that the organisers have issued house rules that are applicable to the relevant venue. Ticket users are therefore requested to inform themselves about the relevant house rules well in advance. ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency has no influence on the content of the relevant house rules; non-observance of the house rules by the customer and a refusal of admission by the organiser based thereon do not constitute grounds for any claims against ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency. ConcertVienna Online Ticket Agency points out that the organiser may refuse re-entry by the customer in the case that they leave the venue.
