Welcome to Steppenbrand!

§ 1 Scope and provider

§ 2 Conclusion of the contract

(5) The purchase contract between the supplier and the customer is only concluded through a declaration of acceptance by the supplier. This takes place as soon as the customer has paid the purchase price and the provider sends the customer an e-mail confirming the receipt of payment. This confirmation of receipt of your payment then constitutes the declaration of acceptance in the aforementioned sense!
(6) The ticket exclusively entitles the person named therein (first name, surname) to attend the respective event.

If you wish to have your tickets delivered by another method, the shipping surcharges will vary depending on the desired delivery method and the nature of the item.
(2) Despite our best efforts, a small number of products in our webshop may be marked with the wrong price. We check the prices when we process your order. If a product is incorrectly priced and the correct price is higher than the price on the website, we will contact you before dispatching the goods to ask if you wish to purchase the product at the correct price or cancel the order. If the correct price of a product is lower than the price we have quoted, we will charge the lower amount.
(3) The prices at the time of the order shall apply.
(4) If the user wishes to purchase a chargeable product from our web shop, he will be informed in advance of the chargeability. In particular, the respective additional scope of services, the costs incurred and the method of payment will be listed.

§ 4 Delivery and Cancellation

(1) Unless otherwise agreed, tickets will be delivered to the email address provided by the purchaser. On the website you will find information on the availability of products sold by Steppenbrand.

They do not constitute binding or guaranteed shipping or delivery dates unless expressly stated as a binding date in the shipping options for the relevant product.

§ 7 Limitation of liability

(2) The provider and his assistants accept no liability for your items and valuables during the event. In particular, the provider and his assistants are not liable for their loss or damage. Furthermore, the provider and its auxiliary persons assume no liability for objects and valuables that the participant may hand over to the organiser for safekeeping. Intent and gross negligence on the part of the provider or its auxiliary persons are excluded from this.
(3) In the event of the event being cancelled due to force majeure, weather or other circumstances for which the provider is not responsible, the participant shall have no claim against the organiser for a refund of the ticket price or compensation for damages.
(4) Should a claim be made against the provider, its auxiliary persons or the owner of the event premises by a third party due to damage suffered by you on the event premises or on the journey to and from there, you shall, by accepting these GTC, indemnify them against the claim in this respect, including all necessary costs of legal defence. By accepting these GTC, you also declare that you will not assert any such claims yourself against the provider, its auxiliary persons or the owner of the club premises.
(5) Excluded from this are damages from injury to life, limb or health that are based on a culpable breach of duty by the Provider or its auxiliary persons and other damages that are based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by the Provider or its auxiliary persons.
(6) If damage that is not damage from injury to life, body or health is based on the negligent breach of an essential obligation of the provider or on the negligent breach of an obligation the fulfilment of which makes the implementation of the event possible in the first place and on the observance of which you as a participant may regularly rely, the provider shall also be liable for such damage. However, liability in these cases is limited to the foreseeable and typically occurring damage.
(7) The provider does not maintain any insurance that would cover the risk associated with your participation in the event (e.g. bodily injury, damage to the vehicle). Therefore, you are advised by the organiser to arrange for appropriate insurance cover yourself.
(8) The provider assumes no responsibility for the correctness of the information in the registration of the purchasers as well as other content generated by the purchasers.
(9) Claims for damages based on injury to life, body, health or freedom shall become statute-barred after 30 years; otherwise after 1 year, whereby the statute of limitations shall commence at the end of the year in which the claim arose and the creditor became aware of the circumstances giving rise to the claim and the person of the debtor or should have become aware of them without gross negligence (section 199 (1) BGB).

§ 8 Offsetting and right of retention

(1) The Purchaser shall only have the right to offset if the Purchaser’s counterclaim has been legally established or has not been disputed by the Supplier.
(2) The Purchaser may only exercise a right of retention insofar as its counterclaim is based on the same contractual relationship.

§ 9 Retention of title

(1) Steppenbrand-MV e.V. as organiser of the outdoor camp “Steppenbrand” and operator of the website “” reserves the right to confiscate tickets that have not been paid in full or to declare them invalid. Any further rights of the provider remain unaffected.

§ 10 Professional or commercial resale

A private transfer or resale is only possible via the ticket system of TicketPay. This will incur fees from the provider.
(2) In the event of a culpable violation, the provider expressly reserves all rights and claims, in particular the assertion of damages.

§ 11 Changes, withdrawal by the provider

(1) The scope of services for tickets purchased by the customer, as the customer finds it in the Steppenbrand website, can be adapted and further developed by the provider if necessary. Such changes are to be accepted by the customer if they are reasonable and do not significantly affect the overall design of the event to which the ticket relates.
(2) The description of events by the provider does not constitute a guarantee in the legal sense. Rather, it serves merely as an illustration.
(3) Notwithstanding statutory rights of withdrawal, the Provider shall be entitled to withdraw from the contract with the customer up to the event if it cannot reasonably be expected to hold the event to which the purchased ticket relates because the economic sacrifice limit is exceeded for reasons for which the Provider is not responsible, or in the event of force majeure, provided that the Provider is not itself responsible for the obstacle to the performance of the contract (see also § 8 (3)).

§ 12 Cancellation policy

(1) A right of withdrawal for consumers does not exist for contracts for the provision of services in connection with leisure activities if the contract provides for a specific date or period for the provision (Section 312g (2) No. 9 BGB). This means that there is no right of withdrawal in particular for tickets or admission tickets for events.
(2) Each order for tickets is thus binding for the customer immediately after confirmation by the Provider pursuant to § 2 (5) and obligates the customer to accept and pay for the ordered tickets.
(3) A return, exchange, transfer or refund of sold tickets by the provider is excluded!

§ 13 Privacy

(1) Information on privacy can be found in the separate privacy policy of the provider.
(2) By using the provider's website and ordering a ticket, you implicitly agree to this data protection declaration.

(2) The sole place of jurisdiction for orders placed by merchants, legal entities under public law or special funds under public law is the registered office of the supplier.

§ 15 Final provisions

(1) The contractual language is German.
(2) The Provider does not offer any products or services for purchase by minors.
(3) If the purchaser breach these GTC and the provider do nothing about it, the provider will still be entitled to exercise his rights on any other occasion on which the purchaser breach these GTC.
(4) The Provider reserves the right to make changes to his website, policies, terms and conditions, including these GTC, at any time. The purchaser’s order will be subject to the terms and conditions of sale, terms and conditions of contract and terms and conditions in force at the time he places his order, unless a change to these terms and conditions is required by law or government order, in which case they will also apply to orders you have previously placed.
(5) If any provision of these GTC is invalid, void or for any reason unenforceable, that provision shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
(6) The invalidity of a provision shall not affect the validity of the other provisions from the contract. Should this occur, the provision shall be replaced by another legally permissible provision in accordance with its meaning and purpose, which corresponds to the meaning and purpose of the invalid provision.
