Any cancellation of an application must be made in writing. For written cancellations by May 15th of the event year (acc. to the postal stamp) a processing fee of EUR 65 plus applicable VAT shall be charged. In the event of a cancellation by that date, participant fees, which have already been paid, shall be reimbursed minus the processing fee. If a cancellation is received after that date, the participant shall no longer be entitled to the receipt of the proceedings.
After the deadline the participant fee must be paid in full according to the invoice. This shall apply both to cancellations after the 31st May of the event year and to unannounced non-participation. In this case, the proceedings can be sent to the participant by mail on request as soon as the event fee has been received in full by the organizer.
If a participant is ill, he shall submit a medical certificate for the entire duration of the event to the organizer immediately. In this case the processing fee shall become void and fees, which have already been paid, shall be reimbursed in full. In the event of a cancellation due to illness, the entitlement to receipt the proceedings shall become void.
Participants shall not be entitled to reduction, retention or offset, unless these entitlements are undisputed and legally proven in writing.
