Terms & Conditions

These terms and conditions (“T&C”) apply to all attendees, sponsors and other participants in the EuroPython 2020 conference (the “Event” or the “Conference”), held by EuroPython Society (EPS), having the registered address EuroPython Society, Ramnebacken 45, 424 38 Agnesberg, Sweden (the “Organizers” of the event), from 20 - 26 July 2020, at The Convention Centre Dublin (the “CCD” or the “Venue”) in Dublin, Ireland.

1. Registration

Registration for participation in the conference must be made via the website https://ep2020.europython.eu/ (the “Event Website”). After purchase, the participant will receive an email confirmation by the Organizers to accept the purchase contract. The tickets can be picked up as badges at the conference registration desk on the first day of the Event.

Each ticket is bound to a named participant which can be set after purchase. They can be reassigned, but only the person identified on the ticket is allowed to use the ticket.

Tickets may be subject to proper proof of eligibility (e.g. student ID or certificate). The participants may be requested for such proof when picking up the ticket at the conference registration desk. If eligibility cannot be proven, the ticket can be converted into a standard ticket or refunded.

Some ticket categories only have a limited number of available tickets. The number of tickets is determined by the Organizers at their sole discretion.

2. Payments

Unless otherwise stated, all prices include the currently applicable VAT rates as required by local and EU regulations.

Invoices can be downloaded on the Event Website by logging into the account which was used for the purchase. Invoices will be made available as soon as all relevant local registrations have gone into effect, in particular the registration for a local VAT ID.

Payments on the Event Website can only be made by debit or credit card. Other forms of payment are not possible.

For debit or credit card payments, the cards will be charged immediately following the application. Debit and credit card payments are handled by the service provider Stripe (https://stripe.com/). The Organizers do not store any card information.

3. Performance and Cancellation

Admission to the Event is granted based on tickets (“Event Tickets” or “Conference Passes”). The ticket fee listed on the Event Website covers the admission of the Event (or part thereof) to the extent defined on the Event Website for each ticket category. The same applies to any additional items which may be sold via the Event Website, such as e.g. SIM cards, tickets for museums, local transport, etc.

Changes to the program, the event content, schedule and the speakers may occur due to organizational reasons and are not considered as a breach of the purchase contract. There is no right to refunds for any unused services which were properly offered.

The Organizers are entitled to withdraw from the contract if carrying out the Event would be uneconomic (e.g. due to insufficient number of exhibitors, sponsors or participants). The same applies if the Event is canceled, in whole or in part, for reasons beyond their reasonable control, such as act of God, labor disputes, civil commotion, epidemics, terrorism, vandalism, war, lack of power or utilities, floods, fire, acts of Government or regulatory authorities or other events of such effect that carrying out or the continuation of the event would be unreasonable in the circumstances. The Organizers are under no obligation to reorganize the event.

In case of a cancellation of the Event, all participants will be notified by the Organizers without delay and any payments made will be refunded. The Organizers’ liability is limited to refund of the participation fee. All other liability for participant claims is excluded except in cases of intent or gross negligence on the part of the Organizers. In particular, no claims may be made for refund of travel and accommodation costs, loss of working time or opportunity.

4. Refunds

The Event Tickets are fully refundable until June 19th 24:00 CEST. Refunds are no longer possible after that date unless otherwise specified by the Organizers. The Organizers reserve the right to deduct administrative costs (bank, online payments services, etc) from the refund.

Refund requests must be made by email to the refunds@europython.eu email address. The email must include the Order Number, Ticket IDs and name of the person who bought the ticket. Refunds are processed via Stripe and will be paid back to the same payment card which was used for the purchase of the tickets.

Processing of the refunds will happen no later than 30 days after the end of the Event.

Alternatively, the ticket may be reassigned to another participant at no extra cost. Where eligibility constraints apply (e.g. students), the substitute participant must similarly provide the required proper proof of eligibility. If proof is not sufficiently provided, the substitute participant must pay the difference between the discounted ticket and the standard ticket price.

Revocation Rights Notice

Ticket purchases may be revoked by the purchaser, within 14 days, without stating any reason, in text form (e.g. letter, email). The 14­ day period begins on receipt of this notice, earliest however on contract formation and not before fulfillment of the duty of information on the part of the Organizers.

The revocation is effected on time if sent within the foregoing period for revocation. The revocation is to be sent to: helpdesk@europython.eu by email, or by postal mail to:

Consequences of Revocation

In the event of a valid revocation, any performance already received by either party shall be returned along with the proceeds of any use thereof (e.g. interest). If the purchaser cannot return the performance or proceeds of use, or only in a deteriorated condition, then the purchaser must compensate the Organizers. The duty to return payments must be fulfilled within 30 days. For the purchaser, this period begins on sending the revocation; for the Organizers, on receipt thereof.
