5. Non-Performance of the Conference/ Program modifications

The Verlag is entitled to, on account of force majeure or for good cause (e.g. due to illness of several speakers or an insufficient number of participants), cancel the Conference with full reimbursement of all Conference fees paid up to that point. In this case, the participants will be notified as soon as possible. There shall be no claim to compensation for travel and/or overnight accommodation costs or for loss of working time.

The Organizer explicitly retains the right for program modifications due to reasons of force majeure, as long as the overall nature of the event is maintained. Substitute speakers, minor scheduling changes or a change of venue of the Conference do not entitle to a price reduction or withdrawal from the contract.

6. Copyright

The copyright to the spoken word and the articles/presentations in the Conference documentation is retained by the authors/speakers and discussion participants. The copyright to the complete documentation is retained by the Verlag. Duplication, copying, distribution or other uses (directly or indirectly) of the Conference documents as well as photographing, sound- or audio-visual recordings during the event require the prior written permission of the Organizer.

7. Filming, Videotaping and Photography

During the Natural Cosmetics Conference, filming, videotaping and photos will be taken. These images/footage include the visual representation of attending persons, though the selection of persons is random. The collected footage/images will be published in, but not limited to, Natural Cosmetics Conference media, news and Conference publications, in other newspapers and magazines as well as on the internet. In case that the images/footage indicate the ethnic origin, religion or health of the person (e.g. skin color, headwear, eyeglasses), the consent is also given for these details.

Information on the internet is accessible worldwide and can be located with the help of search engines, can be linked with other data and could possibly be used to compile a personal profile of the participant. Information, including images, posted on the internet, can easily be compiled and disseminated. Specialized archiving services are in operation, permanently documenting the content of particular websites on specific dates. Information posted on the internet may therefore be located and viewed on other sites even after it has been deleted from the website of origin. 

Upon registration for the Natural Cosmetics Conference, the participant consents to being photographed, filmed and/or otherwise recorded and agrees to the publication of the images without compensation in the aforementioned manner without any further expressed written permission.

If the person concerned does not agree to the publication of the image representing this person in a specific case, we request to notify the photographer immediately. This consent is voluntary. The participant may refuse to consent without indicating any reasons for the refusal, without incurring disadvantages. The participant may at any given time withdraw the consent in writing (e.g. letter, e-mail). In this case, the image will be removed in reasonable time and will not be published in printed form again.

8. Data Protection

The Organizer will use data collected during the registration solely for the establishment, execution or termination of this contract within the framework of applicable law. In no case will the data be sold or otherwise transferred directly or indirectly to third parties.

9. General Provisions

In disputes arising from this contract and about its existence, the venue of legal jurisdiction shall be deemed, unless agreed otherwise in written form, Wetzlar, Germany.
