  6. General Terms and Conditions for Contractual Relationships


The General Terms and Conditions of Business (hereinafter referred to as the «GTC») apply to all contracts and similar legal relationships of NocheDePasion (hereinafter referred to as «Supplier»).


The following information and general terms and conditions of business apply to consumers, hereinafter referred to as «Participants».


A consumer in the sense of the following regulations is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes which can predominantly neither be attributed to his commercial nor his independent professional activity (§ 13 of the German Civil Code).


Company, NocheDePasion, hereinafter referred to as «Supplier», within the meaning of § 312 of the German Civil Code.

Represented by Christian Beyreuther.


§ 1 Contractual provisions

The contract language is German. The terms and conditions for the contract (GTC) are made available to the Participant in the NocheDePasion Member area. The Participant has the option to save the information for himself in a reproducible form as a PDF document.


The Participant will receive an invoice with the confirmation e-mail for the registration of participation in the private closed event.


§ 2 Subject of the contract

The subject of the contract is the right to participate in tango events that take place by private invitation. Details, in particular the main features of the events, can be found by the Participant by means of navigation via the «Programme» buttons and the submenus that open up.


In the event of a generally reasonable change/postponement of the event location, the event time or the persons participating in the event and other service providers, participation agreements shall not become invalid. The Provider reserves the right to make changes for compelling reasons.


The conditions of participation (2.) are acknowledged and accepted with the registration/participation in an event.


§ 3 Conclusion of the contract

If an offer is submitted by the Supplier, the activation of the offer does not yet constitute a binding offer to conclude a participation contract, but rather is an invitation to the Participant to submit a binding offer for participation.


The Participant’s offer is complete if he/she has registered his/her participation via the online registration and pays the fee after checking the Supplier in connection with subsequent invoicing within 10 days (receipt of the amount on the account specified in the invoice).


If the deadline expires without receipt of payment, the registration for participation becomes invalid.
The Supplier confirms the right(s) to participate by e-mail within fourteen (14) days after receipt of payment, unless the capacities of the tango event are not sufficient, in particular for reasons of security or if the Participant’s offer does not comply with these GTC.


If the Supplier cannot accept all Participant offers in exceptional cases, it shall observe the reservation hierarchy (lots will be drawn for the reservations of participants from the region!). The Supplier shall inform Participants whose right to participate could not be confirmed in exceptional cases by e-mail.


§ 4 The contract shall be concluded as follows

The tango event is described on the website of the Supplier. For this purpose, it is possible to register the group of persons to the closed event who have been defined and invited in advance by the Supplier and who are to be on the Supplier’s guest list.


The registration option is only made available to personally invited persons for a few hours/days. Persons who have registered without prior invitation will be sorted out by the Supplier and informed if necessary should participation not be possible.


The invitation to the event is issued personally by the Supplier.

The invitation is issued as follows

  1. by verbal invitation
  2. by e-mail
  3. via WhatsApp
  4. via a closed Facebook group
  5. via Facebook Messenger


Upon receipt of the Participant’s page registration, the inviting party will check it for personal reference to the invitation. The subject of the examination is an invitation list (closed Facebook group, etc.) defined in advance by the Supplier.


In the Member area, the Participant receives further important information about the event.


Fees are charged so that the Supplier can cover costs. The resulting invoice amount is defined by an organisational fee, which is clearly visible in the internal member area «Encuentro Registration».


As soon as the Participant has paid the invoice within 10 days, the Participant will receive his/her personal confirmation of participation from the Supplier via e-mail within 14 days.


Bank transfers to the account specified by the Supplier are the accepted payment method. Cash payments are possible by prior arrangement. See § 8.


The Participant’s offer becomes binding if he/she pays the participation fee within 10 days (receipt of the amount on the Supplier account specified in the invoice). If the deadline expires without receipt of payment, registration for participation becomes null and void.


With the confirmation of the right to participate by e-mail from the Supplier, the participation contract is concluded (see § 3).


The processing of the order and transmission of all information required in connection with the conclusion of the contract is partly automated by e-mail. The Participant must therefore ensure that the e-mail address stored by the Supplier is correct, that the receipt of the e-mails is technically guaranteed and in particular is not prevented by SPAM filters.


After receipt of payment, the Participant will receive confirmation of the right to participate by e-mail.
Within 14 days after receipt of payment, the Supplier shall inform Participants whose right to participate could not be confirmed in exceptional cases and shall reimburse advance payments made without delay (at the latest within 30 days).


In the event of the expiry of the participation offer within 10 days (see above) due to lack of receipt of money on the Supplier’s account, the registration on the part of the Supplier will be deleted in order to be able to offer the participation right to other interested parties.


The Supplier shall endeavour to keep the operation of the website free of malfunctions as far as this is technically possible. If, contrary to expectations, technical malfunctions should nevertheless occur, the conclusion of a contract for the duration of the malfunction is excluded.


§ 5 Cancellation of the contract by the Participant

Up to four (4) months before the tango event, cancellations can be made unilaterally by the Participant by e-mail. Participation fees paid will be reimbursed in full.


Cancellations of less than three (3) months and up to two (2) months before the tango event can be made unilaterally by the Participant by e-mail. Participation fees paid will be reimbursed on a pro-rata basis to the amount of 50%.


Cancellations of less than two (2) and up to one (1) month before the tango event can be requested by the Participant by e-mail. By submitting an application, the Participant waives his/her right to participate. On the basis of the application, the Supplier can offer the right to participate elsewhere. The application will only be accepted by the Supplier if the tango event reaches full capacity. Once full capacity is reached, the participation contract is converted into a return contract and the Participant receives a pro-rata refund of 50% of the participation fee. No refunds are possible if full capacity is not reached.


Less than one (1) month before the tango event, the contract can be cancelled and the Participant waives his right to participate, but without a refund option.


§ 6 Withdrawal from the contract by the Supplier

Up to one (1) month before the start of the tango event, the Supplier can withdraw from the participation contract by e-mail if the minimum number of participants is not reached or if the event partners of the Supplier withdraw. Participation fees paid will be reimbursed in full.


§ 7 Prices

The prices quoted in the respective offers represent the final prices for participation. They include all price components including any applicable taxes. During the tango event, the Participant may incur additional costs for services beyond the participation that are not included in the price, e.g. cloakroom fee, purchase of food and drinks.


§ 8 Terms of payment

The payment options specified in the actual offer are available to the Participant. A cash payment is possible if none of the Participants can use any of the payment options proposed by the Supplier.


Alternatively, cash payments can be made if the event is made available to the public.


§ 9 Liability

The Supplier shall be excluded from liability for minor negligent breaches of duty, unless damages are incurred resulting from injury to life, limb, health or guarantees, or if claims are affected under the Product Liability Act. Existing physical limitations or health problems must be reported prior to the event. Otherwise the organiser shall not be held liable for any physical damage or complaints resulting from participation in the event. Furthermore, liability for the breach of obligations shall remain unaffected, the fulfilment of which is essential for the proper execution of the contract and upon whose compliance the customer may regularly rely. The same applies to breaches of duty by his vicarious agents.


For damages caused by third parties in connection with external services (e.g. gastronomic services), the Supplier shall not be held liable; rather the respective service Supplier shall be directly liable.


§ 10 Choice of law, place of performance

German law shall apply to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. In the case of consumers, this choice of law applies only insofar as the protection granted by mandatory provisions of the law of the country of the consumer’s habitual residence is not withdrawn (principle of favourability).


Place of performance is the place of the tango event.


§ 11 Protection of minors

The Supplier shall only enter into contractual relationships with adult participants. By submitting the order, the Participant confirms that he/she is at least 18 years old and that his/her details regarding his/her name and address are correct.


If underage persons place orders, the Supplier shall herewith revoke the contract as a precaution according to § 109 of the German Civil Code. Adults who are responsible for or authorised to represent minors ordering under false information are liable to the Supplier for all damages arising from the orders placed under false information in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Participants can be expelled from the tango event if they disrupt it or harass other participants. They may also be denied access if there is cause for concern. Furthermore, the Supplier can ban these people from entering the premises. The participation fee will not be refunded in these cases.


§ 2 Start, proof of the right to participate

The premises are generally opened 30 minutes before the start of the tango event and 15 minutes before at the latest.

5 General Terms and Conditions for Contractual Relationships with Entrepreneurs

The following terms and conditions of business apply to contracts between the Supplier and contractual partners who are entrepreneurs. The rules set out under «Consumer Information, Conditions of Participation, Privacy Policy and Website Terms of Use» apply, unless their content is in accordance with statutory consumer protection and/or the following provisions deviate from them. Unless otherwise agreed, the inclusion of the contractual partner’s own conditions is objected.

A partnership with legal capacity is a partnership with the ability to acquire rights and enter into liabilities. (§ 14 German Civil Code).

If essential contractual obligations are affected, the liability of the Supplier in case of minor negligence shall be limited to the contract-typical, foreseeable damage. Essential contractual obligations are essential obligations which arise from the nature of the contract and whose violation would endanger the achievement of the purpose of the contract as well as obligations which the contract imposes on the Supplier according to its content to achieve the purpose of the contract, the fulfilment of which makes the proper execution of the contract possible in the first place and upon whose compliance the contractual partner may regularly rely.


In the event of a breach of unessential contractual obligations, liability for minor negligent breaches of obligations shall be excluded.


Data communication via the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be error-free and/or available at any time according to the current state of the art. In this respect, the Supplier shall not be liable for the permanent or uninterrupted availability of the website and the services offered on it.


German law shall apply to the exclusion of UN sales law.
