House rules

House Rules

General information

The house rules of the event SEEFELD NORDIC COMBINED TRIPLE provide that visitors are obliged to read the following instructions and regulations of these house rules carefully, especially for security reasons. At latest by using the admission ticket and entering the event site the visitor confirms the knowledge of the house rules and accepts their validity.

Area of validity

The house rules inform and lay down rules of conduct for the entry to and presence on an event site during events. The “event site” includes all areas used for the staging of the event. The event site is entered by passing through the security controls at the entrance and left by passing through the exit.

Purpose of the house rules

The purpose of the house rules is to

to prevent danger or harm to persons and objects,

to protect the stadium from damages and pollution,

to guarantee an undisturbed course of the events.

Access to the event site

Entering the event site is permitted only with a valid entry authorisation (admission ticket, accreditation). The admission ticket becomes invalid after leaving the event site during an event. Some events require leaving the event site due to infrastructural reasons; in such cases the re-entry is guaranteed with an additional marking (e.g. stamp). Within any event access and security controls are performed at all the entrances to the area. If requested, an appropriate proof of identity has to be provided.

Upon entering the event site, every visitor is obliged to voluntarily present his entry authorisation to the safety and security personnel and, if requested, surrender it for inspection or prove his authorisation otherwise. Identity document requirements also apply during the entire presence on the event site if requested by the safety and security personnel. Visitors who fail to comply with these regulations will be refused entry to or ejected from the event site. The validity and usability of the admission ticket arise from the organiser’s general terms and conditions for tickets.

The safety and security personnel is entitled to search persons seeking entrance to the event for dangerous or otherwise unauthorised items. The search also includes clothing worn and receptacles brought in by visitors and can also be carried out with the help of technical tools. Searches of persons have to be conducted by safety and security personnel of the same sex.

The safety and security personnel has the right to deny access to the event site to persons who do not consent to searches or may violate the aims of the house rules due to their personal condition (e.g. due to consumption of alcohol or drugs). The same applies to persons who try to bring dangerous or otherwise unauthorised items (see below) into the event site. In such a case reimbursement of admission fees does not apply. The safety and security personnel is free to decide whether or not access is granted nevertheless if the visitor deposits prohibited or otherwise unauthorised items outside the event site.

Items whose possession is illegal are confiscated and handed to the police along with the personal data of the owner. Items whose possession is prohibited according to these house rules may be deposited by the visitor in places reserved for this purpose under the guidance of the safety and security personnel. A contract of deposit is not concluded thereby. The organiser is not liable for lost, mislaid or damaged items. Items that have not been collected by the end of the event may be disposed of by the organiser or used for another purpose freely determined by the organiser.

The spectator area along the race track is in steep wintery natural terrain and accessible by foot or on skis only to a limited extent and at the visitor’s own risk; respective warning signs and barriers are to be observed. The visitor is particularly informed that sound levels can be very high during events and exposure poses a risk of hearing damage/health effects. Especially children and persons with sensitive hearing are advised to take appropriate protective measures. The presence on the event site is at the visitor’s own risk. Liability is excluded in accordance with the general terms and conditions. The visitor is obliged to inform the organiser without delay about any accidents, damages and injuries.

The visitor acknowledges and agrees that spectator areas within the entire event site will be filmed for security reasons and in order to punish violations of the law and the house rules.

Visitors are prohibited from transmitting audio and/or visual recordings, descriptions, results and/or statistics of the event in full or in part via internet, radio, TV and/or other present and future media technologies or from supporting others in implementing such activities.
