3. Personal Data Protection
The Organizer is the administrator responsible for personal data. They are required to protect this data and are responsible for complying with all the responsibilities arising from binding legal regulations on protecting personal data. The processor that the Organizer has specified is the company DEEP VISION s.r.o., Hlaváčova 207, 530 02 Pardubice, email: email@example.com, tel. +420 461 100 936, enigoo.cz, and it collects and processes personal data via electronic information carriers via a secured data storage site. Personal data is understood to be information about the Customer that can be used to directly or indirectly identify them. The first and last names of the Customer as well as their address, email, and telephone number are requested in order to process ticket orders. By filling in the requested personal information on the form, the Customer gives their explicit permission to allow it to be processed. However, the Customer has the right to rescind their agreement to this at any point and to have their personal data erased. The Customer has the right to request information on how their personal data is being processed, to request explanations about this processing, to ask for access to it, and to allow it to be updated or modified.
4. Contractual Relationship
By purchasing a Ticket, the Customer enters into a contractual relationship with the Organizer; the substance of this relationship is to allow for the Ticket Holder’s personal participation in an Event under the conditions set by the participation guidelines (“The Organizer’s Conditions”) and these Conditions (hereafter the “Contract on Event Participation”). Other services supplied by the Organizer or another contracted provider can be included as part of the Ticket.
The Organizer is responsible for carrying out and fulfilling the Contract on Event Participation, including the dates, quality, and content of the Events they offer. However, the Organizer reserves the right to change these. The Organizer is also responsible for providing other services purchased along with the Ticket, including any that are provided by contracted providers.
According to Article 1837 (j) of the Czech Civil Code, the Customer does not have the right to withdraw from the contract.
It is possible to purchase Tickets in printed as well as electronic form. Electronic Tickets can be used via a device with a screen display (cell phone, tablet, computer) or they can be converted into printed form on any type of computer printer. The Customer is required to store and protect the Ticket from misuse, i.e., from allowing the unique code to be reproduced by duplication and use by a non-authorized individual. The Organizer does not bear the responsibility for misuse and reserves the right to provide the services imparted by the Ticket to the first Ticket Holder that shows it. By showing the Ticket at the entry to the Event venue, the Ticket Holder expresses their consent to the regulations for participation (“The Organizer’s Conditions”).
When purchasing Tickets at the Website, it is possible to pay for the entire Ticket or just a part of it using a Voucher. The Voucher is not a Ticket; it does not enable entry to an Event, and it does not allow for priority purchasing of Tickets to a select Event. The Customer is required to store and protect the Voucher from misuse, i.e., against revealing its unique code to a non-authorized individual. The Voucher can be used repeatedly – until the entire price has been used up. Any remaining ticket price must be paid for; any overpayment will not be reimbursed financially – it will remain on the Voucher. Because Vouchers may be given as gifts, the Organizer does not have the option of verifying whether the Voucher is used by an authorized individual.
7. Customer Account
By creating a user account at the Website, the Customer subsequently acquires the advantages of being able to view their orders, printing Tickets at a later date, adding other services to a purchased Ticket, etc. The Customer’s account is protected by the user’s name and a password determined by the Customer.
8. Additional Performance Services
Additional Performance Services make it possible to additionally purchase services and products along with the Ticket. This typically includes a program of the performance, refreshments, etc. Additional Services are always associated with a specific Event and are conditional upon Ticket Purchase for that Event. Therefore, Customers who purchase Additional Services must have already set up a Customer Account. After the payment has been completed, a Voucher for Additional Services is sent by email and saved in the Customer’s account. The Voucher is updated each time further Additional Services are purchased.
9. Ticket and Voucher Sales
9.1. Purchasing Tickets at a Sales Point:
The Customer can purchase Tickets in printed form at Sales Points during their opening hours without previous reservation if the requested type of Tickets are available.

The Customer only has the right to be reimbursed for the ticket price if the Event is canceled or if it is left unfinished for reasons of inclement weather or other unforeseeable circumstances and less than 20 minutes of the program was performed. It is necessary to apply for the right to a Ticket refund at the place where the Ticket was purchased. Reimbursing Tickets bought using an online payment method will be automatically refunded by a reverse transaction to the same account that was used for payment.
