​3.5 Cancellation Policy and Right of Withdrawal

General information on the right of withdrawal

(1) If you are a consumer (i.e. a natural person who places the order for a purpose that cannot be attributed to your commercial or self-employed professional activity), you have a right of withdrawal in accordance with the statutory provisions.

(2) The right of withdrawal shall expire, in the case of a contract for the provision of services, if we have provided the service in full and have only started to provide the service after you have given your express consent to this and you have at the same time confirmed your knowledge that you lose your right of withdrawal when the contract has been fulfilled by us in full (Section 356 (4) clause 1 BGB).

(3) In all other respects, the provisions set out in detail in the following cancellation policy shall apply to the right of cancellation

Right of withdrawal

You have the right to cancel the contract within fourteen days without giving any reason. The withdrawal period is fourteen days from the day on which you and/or a third party named by you, who is not the carrier, have/has taken possession of the goods.

To exercise your right of withdrawal, you must contact us [Europa-Park GmbH & Co Mack KG, Europa-Park-Straße 2, 77977 Rust, Tel: +49 7822 776 697, fax: 07822 860 5779 and email: gaesteservice@europapark.de] by means of a clear declaration (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or email) of your decision to revoke this contract. You can use the attached model withdrawal form for this purpose, which is, however, not mandatory.

To comply with the cancellation period, it is sufficient that you send the notification of the exercise of the right of cancellation before the end of the cancellation period.

Consequences of Revocation

If you withdraw from the contract, we must refund all payments we have received from you, including delivery costs (with the exception of additional costs resulting from the fact that you have chosen a type of delivery other than the cheapest standard delivery offered by us), without delay and at the latest within fourteen days of the day on which we received notification of your withdrawal from this contract. For this repayment, we will use the same means of payment that you used for the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise with you; in no case will you be charged for this repayment.

If you have requested that the service should begin during the withdrawal period, you must pay us a reasonable amount corresponding to the proportion of the services already provided up to the time you notify us of the exercise of the right of withdrawal with regard to this contract compared to the total scope of the services provided for in the contract.

Sample Cancellation Form

If you wish to cancel the contract, you can use this sample cancellation form and return it to us.

If you have agreed to immediate execution as part of the loan (which is regularly the case), your right of withdrawal has already expired.

​4. Rights and Obligations of the Client

​4.1 Rights of Use and Restrictions on Use

The customer is entitled to use "VEEJOY" exclusively in the private sphere and may only use the content offered there for personal and non-commercial purposes. A public performance – of any kind – is not permitted.


The files are protected by copyright and may not be reproduced, edited or passed on to third parties without the consent of Europa-Park.

If the files are provided with a digital rights management ("DRM"), which limits the number of simultaneous streams and may provide for further usage restrictions (e.g. territorial, temporal), the customer is obliged not to change, remove or circumvent the DRM.

The customer is not entitled to transfer the contractual relationship to other natural persons and/or legal entities or not to allow or enable them to use his access.

The customer is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of his access data, including the password.

​4.2 Prohibition of Distribution

The customer is obliged not to copy the (video and audio) files contained in "VEEJOY", to pass them on to third parties and in particular to place them in file sharing networks or to offer them publicly or make them publicly accessible in any other way, in particular not via websites, blogs, video portals or the like, except for the functions provided for this purpose within the framework of "VEEJOY", if applicable.

The contents are legally protected by copyright, trademark and possibly other industrial property rights. The customer is therefore only entitled to use them himself for private purposes within the scope of the intended use. The customer is expressly prohibited from passing on or forwarding content or the access data of the Mack One account to third parties.

​4.3 Protection of minors

The customer is obliged to show or otherwise make available to children or young people only such content from "VEEJOY" which is approved for the respective age group.

Content that is not suitable for children and/or young people of different ages is marked with technical age labels.

In individual cases, it may be necessary to provide certain data for the use of streaming content (e.g. age). The streaming content can then only be used by the customer after the data has been entered in accordance with the instructions provided.

​4.4 Blocking the User

Europa-Park reserves the right to block customers from using "VEEJOY" with immediate effect in the event of violations of the regulations listed in sections 4.1 and 4.2. The same applies in the event of a delay in payment or an unsuccessful payment.

In this case, any fees already paid will be forfeited and will not be refunded. After payment of the fee, the blocking can be lifted again.

 

​5. Availability and Liability

​5.1 Availability

Europa-Park does not guarantee or warrant that VEEJOY will meet the requirements of customers, be uninterrupted, secure or error-free.

The statutory provisions apply with regard to borrowed content.

​5.2 Liability

Europa-Park shall be liable for damages in the event of culpable injury to life, body or health as well as in cases of intentional or grossly negligent acts in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Europa-Park's liability for damage caused by slight negligence is limited to essential contractual obligations, i.e. those obligations whose fulfilment is essential for the proper execution of the contract, whose non-fulfilment would jeopardise the purpose of the contract and on whose compliance the user regularly relies.

 

​6. Amendment of the General Terms of Use

Changes to these General Terms of Use will be communicated to the customer in an appropriate manner, e.g. by email or on the VEEJOY portal.
