Liability of DTAG or IBFB
In particular, there is a possibility of cancellation by DTAG in cases where the event cannot take place due to force majeure. A force majeure case applies if a recognized institution (such as the Robert Koch Institute) or the Federal Republic of Germany, its federal states and municipalities, and in particular public health authorities, issue a travel warning or increased risk warning for Bonn and its surroundings, or if a recognized institution classifies the region as a risk area or severely affected area, or if the authorities prohibit the event from being held due to the risk level, or if official requirements are imposed that make holding the event impossible.
Moreover, the event may be canceled if several Participants cancel or are not permitted to travel to the event, with the result that less than 50% of the Participants can attend the Competition. The decision to cancel the event is at the discretion of the organizer.
DTAG or IBFB will notify the Participants without delay if the Competition is canceled. If the event is canceled for one of the reasons above, the Participants shall have no claims against the organizer.
Should individual Participants not be able or willing to take part in the Competition and particularly the main round (for example, because the region is a risk area or if the Participant in question comes from a risk area and is not allowed to travel to the venue or is excluded from the event as a result), the Participants are obliged to notify DTAG or IBFB of this fact without delay. Once again, should this situation arise, it does not justify any claims against DTAG or IBFB.
Should a Participant be unable to depart the venue because the Bonn region has been declared a risk area in the interim or was already a risk area upon the Participant’s arrival, the Participant shall have no claim against DTAG or IBFB. Such claims may arise including, but not limited, from the extended stay in Bonn (for example, loss of wages/employment, costs of accommodations and meals in Bonn, additional costs of transportation, costs of a coronavirus test). The same applies to persons accompanying the Participant or a Participant’s legal guardian.
