Audi Sweden Experience: General Terms and Conditions.
Participation in the driving training/driving experience events offered by AUDI New Zealand, on behalf of Audi AG (hereinafter: „Organizer“) under the umbrella of the Audi driving experience is subject to the following terms and conditions:
- Booking and Cancellation of the Driving Experience by the Participant
a) Payment of the event price is due upon receipt of the registration confirmation and to be paid in full 3 months in advance of the start of the event at the latest (immediately for reservations within 3 months of the start of the event).
c) If You wish to cancel the Driving Experience:
(i) at any time up to 3 months before the date of the Driving Experience, we will charge you a cancellation fee of 50% of the total costs of the Driving Experience;
(ii) within 2 months of the Driving Experience; we will charge you a cancellation fee of 100% of the total costs of the Driving Experience, and any such cancellation must be made in writing to us.
a) Transport to and from Stockholm (Sweden) and departing Arvidsjaur at the end of the experience is the Participant's own responsibility.
3. Organization/Conditions of implementation
a) All Drivers must be aged at least 18 and be in good health. All Drivers must be free from any medical condition or illness which may affect or impair the Driver's ability to drive the Car.
b) All Drivers must hold a current valid driving licence and will be required to produce their driving licence prior to the commencement of the Driving Experience. Any Driver who fails to produce a valid driving licence prior to the commencement of the Driving Experience will not be permitted to undergo the Driving Experience. Provisional licences and copies of licences are not acceptable to us.
c) All Drivers are required at all times to drive the car in a careful and safe manner and to follow the instructions of their instructor. You will be liable for your acts and omissions and, in particular, your failure to drive the car in accordance with this paragraph.
4. Registrant’s Casualty Insurance and Liability
a) The Organizer shall take out an accident insurance policy for the participant to cover the risks of an accident during the events (resulting in death or disability). The accident insurance is included in the event fee.
b) In the event that the Participant is responsible for damage to the vehicles provided by the Organiser, the Participant is required to reimburse the Organiser up to € 5,000.00. The Participant is permitted to furnish evidence that no damage or depreciation has occurred, or that the amount of any such damage or depreciation is significantly lower than claimed. The Organiser can release the Participant from this obligation if the damage or loss has occurred in a driving exercise during which the Participant has demonstrably followed the instructor’s directions. In the event of intentional or grossly negligent conduct on the part of the Participant, the Participant is liable for any and all damages and/or losses caused by him/her. There is comprehensive insurance for trips on public roads within the scope of the Audi tour experience and brand experience. The Registrant shall pay a deductible of € 1,000.00 per claim for damages.
5. Termination, withdrawal by the Organiser
a) The Organiser can terminate without notice following the start of the event if the execution of the event is severely interrupted by the participant or a third party accompanying the participant despite a corresponding warning by the Organiser or if the participant behaves in some other way contrary to the Agreement so that the Organiser could not reasonably adhere to the Agreement. The Organiser expressly points out in this context that the Participants are to behave in a disciplined manner and follow the directions of the Organiser’s instructors within the scope of the driver training/driver experience included in the events. An absolute ban on alcohol (0.0 alcohol level) and drugs applies during the driver training/driver experience, as well as a ban on other intoxicating substances that impair or could impair the ability to drive. The Registrant is to ensure compliance with these guidelines. In these cases of termination, the Organiser shall retain the claim to the event price. However, it must deduct the value of expenses saved as well as those benefits gained from another utilisation of services not used, including potential refunds through the service provider. In these cases, the Registrant or participant himself bears the potential additional costs for returns. The Registrant or Participant also bears the burden of proof that the Organiser saved more in costs than what was refunded or had fewer additional charges for returns than what was claimed.
b) The Organiser can withdraw up to 30 days prior to the start of the event: - if an explicitly written minimum number of participants has not been realised. As a matter of course, insofar as this becomes apparent at an earlier point in time, the Organiser shall inform the participant that the minimum number of participants cannot be realised. - if, after exhausting all possibilities and considering all interests, it is not reasonable to perform the event. The Organiser does not have a right of withdrawal if it is responsible for the circumstances making it unreasonable (e.g. miscalculation) or if it cannot verify these circumstances. The rescission notice shall be provided to the Participant without delay. In the case of cancellation the Organiser shall refund the price to the Registrant. Further claims of the Registrant and/or Participant are precluded.
a) The Participant is responsible for complying with the passport, visa and health regulations of the country in which the event is being held. The participant is accountable for any disadvantages arising from the failure to comply with these regulations.
b) Customs and currency regulations are very strictly dealt with in various countries. The Participant should inform himself accurately and always follow the regulations.
c) The same applies for observing any conditions of the service provider (e.g. terms of transportation, maximum baggage allowances for airlines, etc.) about which the Organiser has informed the Registrant.
