1. Scope of Application
These Terms and Conditions (“Terms and Conditions”) as amended from time to time apply to the use of the NOAH Website by you (the “Customer” or “you”) and the purchase of conference tickets or any other goods or services via the NOAH Website (collectively, the “Services”).
Please note that we only provide Services to commercial customers who fall under the definition of an “entrepreneur”. We do not offer Services to consumers.
Our Services are based exclusively on these Terms and Conditions. We explicitly object to the inclusion of any conflicting terms and conditions of the Customer. Any offers or Service description that are displayed on the NOAH Website or in any other advertisements are at all times subject to change and non-binding.
2. Registration; Purchase of Conference Tickets
In order to buy a conference ticket or use any other of our Services you must first register and create an account (“NOAH Account”) by completing the checkout process available on the NOAH Website. The NOAH Conference is by invitation-only. Registration is therefore only possible if you have previously obtained a personal invitation code. If you do not possess a personal invitation code, you may register your interest on the NOAH Website and apply for an invitation code.
With regard to the registration and ordering process, you agree to: (a) provide only true, accurate, current and complete information; (b) maintain and promptly update your registration information to keep it true, accurate and complete; and (c) provide us with your credit card or other payment information that are necessary for processing your payments.
By placing an order, e.g. to buy conference tickets, you submit to us a legally binding offer to conclude a contract. Before submitting your order you will be given the opportunity to correct and edit any mistakes and/or information. We will confirm receipt of your order by e-mail. The order confirmation does not constitute an acceptance of your offer. No contract will be deemed concluded before we expressly declare our acceptance of your offer or accept your offer by delivering the ordered products (e.g. delivery of conference tickets you ordered).
You may view, save or print your order details by logging into your account.
