§ 1 Promoter
The event promoter is AUDI AG, 85045 Ingolstadt.
§ 2 Object of the agreement, event rules
Between December 2018 and March 2019, Audi is organising and promoting an event
focussed on bringing Audi clients closer to the e-tron technology as part of an innovative
"customer journey". The exact schedule and content of the event can be taken from the
special description sent by Audi to participants. Participation is free of charge for registrants.
§ 2 Eligibility to participate
Only people who are 18 years of age and older are allowed to participate. The participant is
permitted to attend after successful registration and confirmation of registration is received
from Audi. To register, first go to www.audietronroom.com to find out more about the event,
how the game works and what to expect. By clicking on "Book", visitors will be taken to the
next step where they can enter contact details, select the language they wish to participate
in, decide whether they would like to take a test drive and enter how many people will be
taking part. They will read the data privacy statement and the conditions for participation,
and then indicate that the participants are 18 years of age or older. Then the user clicks
"Accept" and selects the time slot that suits them depending on availability. Finally, the
participant will receive a notification that the reservation has been received and once
availability has been checked they will receive an e-mail confirming their booking.
§ 3 Components of the event
The individual components of the event as well as their organisation will be determined by
Audi. To participate in certain elements of the event there may be special rules that take
priority and which will be announced by Audi before participants take part in those elements.
All costs related to arriving at the event or leaving the event, including any transfers, etc. are
to be borne by the participant.
If there is any doubt, any elements or services not expressly approved in written form by Audi
are not included.
§ 4 Changes / cancellation
Once the event has been offered to the participant free of charge, all services still remain
non-binding for Audi until they are provided. The event is thus carried out, modified or
changed by Audi at its sole discretion. The participant has no claim to participation, to certain
elements of the event or to anything offered as part of the event.
The timing for slots is very tightly organised. If a participant is more than five (5) minutes
late for the assigned slot, Audi reserves the right to give that slot to another participant or to
cancel that participant from the schedule without a replacement slot.
Given due cause, Audi can also exclude the participant from further involvement in the event.
Audi can at any time cancel or end the entire event without stating reasons.
Participants can cancel their participation in the event at any time in writing to Audi without
reason before the event begins (receipt of cancellation by Audi is decisive). Otherwise, Audi
can, within a reasonable scope, charge the participant any unavoidable costs incurred for
services rendered but not received by the participant due to his/her absence. Given good
cause, participation in the event can be cancelled or terminated, in which case any cost
sharing will be excluded. Good cause includes, in particular, if Audi changes the event such
that it unreasonably affects the participant, for example if Audi changes the date or the
location of the event.
§ 5 Rights to use images of and information provided by the participant
1. The participant consents to the reproduction, distribution and other usage of all images,
video footage and/or audio recordings (hereafter: material) of the participant taken during
the event or a component of the event directly by Audi or by third parties, for all conceivable
commercial purposes. In particular, Audi is permitted to use that material, including
additional information about the participant, in all media in order to refer to the event, its
participants, incidents at the event or results of the event, or to use it for advertising. In
particular, it is already planned that the material will be used in a TV documentary piece and
on Internet sites related to the topic.
In particular, Audi retains the exclusive worldwide rights to use the material, unlimited in
terms of territory, factual scope and beyond the lifetime of the participant, free of charge for
commercial purposes and for public reproduction related to product and company advertising
as well as for company communications. Audi has the right to reproduce the material itself or
have it reproduced by third parties, on any media and in any quantity and size, to make the
material public and to distribute the material, in particular in print media such as flyers,
advertisements, posters and newspapers. The consent to same extends to all public
reproduction including broadcasting the material or making it accessible to the public, in
particular on free TV, pay-TV, video-on-demand or through other digital media such as the
Internet, Intranet, social media platforms or on CD-ROM, DVD, or similar media. In addition,
the participant gives Audi permission to use his/her name, age and profession as well as
results and incidents from the event, insofar as the participant provided this information or
contributed to it as part of the Audi event in the aforementioned unlimited time-, territory-
and factual-related scope.
Audi reserves the right to change or process images or to combine images with other images
or elements, as long as the participant's person is not defaced or placed in an unreasonable
context as a result. Audi will not use the material for abusive purposes and will respect the
people represented in the material.
§ 6 Liability
If, due to legal stipulations, Audi is to pay for damages caused by slight negligence, then Audi
assumes limited liability:
This liability shall only apply to infringements of contractual duties, for instance those duties
and obligations the contract is deemed to impose upon Audi according to its content and
purpose, or the very fulfilment of which is deemed to be necessary for due completion of the
contract, and which may with good reason be permanently relied on by the participants. This
liability is limited to foreseeable damages typical at the time the contract was concluded.
Irrespective of any fault of Audi, any liability on the part of Audi due to fraudulent non-
disclosure of a defect, the acceptance of a guarantee, or due to a procurement risk remains
unaffected in accordance with product liability laws.
The personal liability of legal representatives, vicarious agents or Audi employees for
damages caused by their slight negligence is excluded.
