Terms and Conditions

Hanwag Alpine Experience 2019

Terms and Conditions of Participation in the Hanwag Alpine Experience (hereinafter “HAE”)

These Terms and Conditions of Participation govern the legal relationship between participants and the organiser (Hanwag GmbH, Wiesenfeldstr. 7, 85256 Vierkirchen). By confirming their registration, the participant acknowledges the Terms and Conditions of Participation. 

Section 1 Participation

  1. After the participant confirms participation, if selected by Hanwag, the participant shall receive a place on the HAE. 
  1. By confirming, the participant agrees that his data may be used for all formalities associated with the HAE. 
  1. The organiser reserves the right to exclude a participant from the event at any time if a) he provided intentionally false information regarding his personal data b) there is justified suspicion that the participant is not in the position to participate in the HAE or c) there is justified suspicion that the participant has committed an offence.


  1. Participation is a highly personal right and is non-transferable. 
  1. If a registered participant assigns their right without stating reasons or if he notifies the organiser beforehand that he will not be participating, there is no claim to repayment of possible costs incurred. 

Section 2 Requirements for participation

  1. The participant ensures that he/she has familiarised themselves with the demands of high-Alpine terrain and is physically and psychologically in the position to participate in the HAE.
  1. The clothing and equipment which are listed in the packing list sent by Hanwag must be carried along for the entire event.
  1. The instructions of the organiser must be followed at all times. Failure to observe the instructions will lead to expulsion from the event. 

Section 3 Exclusion of liability 

  1. The organiser can change, start late or cancel the event if it believes the conditions to be unsafe. Other claims by the participant – on whatever legal basis – in connection with the event are excluded in these cases. 
  1. The organiser is not liable not least for damages to property and finances caused by gross negligence; this limitation of liability does not include damages which are based on the culpable breach of a contractual cardinal duty of the organiser, and personal injuries (injuries to life, body or health of a person). The aforementioned limitations of liability also extend to the personal liability for damages of the employees, representatives, vicarious agents and third parties, who are employed by the organiser in connection with the execution of the event, or with whom it is contractually bound for this purpose. 
  1. The organiser assumes no liability for health risks of the participant in connection with participation in the event. The participant is aware that participation in the event holds dangers and that the risk of serious danger is not excluded. He/she confirms and agrees that he/she is responsible for establishing whether he/she is sufficiently fit and healthy to be able to take part in this event without misgivings. He/she further confirms that he/she has not been advised against participation in the event by a doctor or comparable person. The participant is solely responsible for his/her personal effects and equipment. He/she is aware and he/she confirms that he/she bears the following risks in particular which are associated with participation in this event, but that this is not an exhaustive list: Falls, dangers arising from dangerous surfaces, material failure and insufficient safety equipment; as well as any dangers arising as a result of the weather. 
  1. The participant is aware of the dangers which arise from the consumption of alcohol, medication and drugs before and during the event and as a result of which his/her judgement and sporting abilities can be impaired. The participant is solely responsible for any consequences which arise from the consumption of alcohol, drugs and medication.
  1. Should it be necessary to medically treat the participant during the event, the participant agrees to this in advance. Medical services are not included and will be billed directly to the participant according to the customary rates for doctors. The organiser does not provide any insurance cover for medical treatment and is also not obligated to do so. The participant is responsible for having sufficient insurance cover for medical treatment. The organiser’s liability for this is excluded. 
  1. The organiser assumes no liability for lost effects of the participant. The organiser assumes no liability for itself or for third parties commissioned by it for effects kept safe free of charge for the participant; the organiser’s liability for gross fault in selecting third parties remains unaffected by this
