Considering that after the purchase, by virtue of the sending of the e-mail by Operator, the purchase shall be deemed concluded and the Voucher received, the Ticket Purchaser shall be solely responsible for notifying Operator without delay that Ticket Purchaser had in fact not received the Voucher.
Each and every Voucher purchased online is affixed with a separate certificate (electronic solution suitable for unique identification, for example QR code), therefore in case of very purchase, the Ticket Purchaser will find one or more links, depending on the number of Vouchers purchased. All links lead to different certificates, therefore, if multiple Vouchers are purchased, then all certificates shall be shown upon entry.

6./ Ordering process:
Choosing the tickets:
For information purposes, the relevant information is displayed under each ticket category found on the website. Ticket purchaser shall enter the number of tickets to be purchased in the fields displayed at each ticket type.
Adding to Basket:
After entering the number of tickets to be purchased and clicking the “Add to Basket” button, the tickets are placed in the basket. At this point, Ticket Purchaser does not have any obligation to pay or purchase the tickets as adding to the basket is not considered bidding. It is advisable to add the products to basket even if Ticket Purchaser is not certain that they wish to purchase given products, as all selected products become visible to Ticket Purchaser in the basket. Thus, Ticket Purchaser can view and compare the products. The contents of the basket can be freely modified until the finalization of the order – pressing the “Proceed to checkout” button -, products can be removed from and added to the basket, and the desired number of respective products can also be modified.
If Ticket Purchaser does not wish to select further tickets, then they shall click the “Proceed to checkout” button. If Ticket Purchaser wishes to place further tickets in the basket, then they shall click the “Continue shopping” button.
Viewing and modifying the basket:
While using the website, Ticket Purchaser may check the contents of the basket by clicking the “Basket” button on the right side of the website. Here, it is possible to remove selected products from the basket and change the number of selected tickets. The system displays the updated information, including the price of products in the basket after clicking the “Update basket” button.
If Ticket Purchaser does not wish to select further products and add them to the basket, then they can finalize the purchase and pay for the tickets by clicking the “Proceed to checkout” button. After clicking the “Proceed to checkout” button, the content of the basket is displayed and the total amount to be paid by Ticket Purchaser for the selected products. Then, Ticket Purchaser may continue with the ordering process by clicking “Proceed to PayPal”, or may delete/modify the previously entered data and go back to the contents of the basket by clicking the “back arrow” icon in the browser.
Correction of data entry errors:
Ticket Purchaser has the opportunity to constantly modify the entered data before finalizing the order (by clicking the go back arrow/button in the browser the previous page is displayed, so the entered data can be modified even if Ticket Purchaser had already entered the next page). It is Ticket Purchaser’s responsibility to ensure that all data is entered correctly, as this serves as the basis of the Voucher. Operator does not take responsibility for fulfilling orders based on inaccurate data entry. Fullness of an inaccurately entered e-mail address or postal address may result in the absence of delivery of the confirmation, and thus may hinder the establishment of contract – in such relation, Operator excludes all liability.
Completion of order (bidding):
Once Ticket Purchaser made sure that the content of the basket falls in line with the products they wish to order, and their data is entered correctly, then Ticket Purchaser may complete their order by clicking “Proceed to PayPal”. Information provided on the website does not classify as Operator’s offer for the establishment of contract. In case of orders falling under the scope of present GTC, Ticket Purchaser qualifies as bidder and the contract is established on the basis of Operator’s acceptance of Ticket Purchaser’s bid made through the website, as per the provisions of present GTC.
By clicking “Proceed to PayPal”, Ticket Purchaser explicitly acknowledges that their bid had been made, and Ticket Purchaser’s acknowledgement – in case of Operator’s confirmation, as per present GTC – entails a payment obligation. Ticket Purchaser’s bid is considered binding during a period of 48 hours. In case Ticket Purchaser does not receive the purchased voucher within a couple minutes from purchase, the reason is supposedly connection error. It is imperative that Ticket Purchaser does not repeat the transaction, but rather reaches out to Operator, that shall remedy the problem. If Ticket Purchaser’s bid is not confirmed by Operator within 48 hours – as per current GTC -, then Ticket Purchaser is relieved from the bound of their bid.
Processing of orders, establishment of contract:
Ticket Purchaser may complete their order at any given time. Operator confirms Ticket Purchaser’s offer via an e-mail sent during the workday following the completion of Ticket Purchaser’s bid at the very latest. Contract is established through Operator’s acceptance of Ticket Purchaser’s bid.

The invoice will be delivered to the e-mail address provided by Ticket Purchaser within 14 days following the order.
The quid pro quo of the order is to be paid immediately via PayPal during the purchase process. Ticket Purchaser will be redirected to PayPal’s website after ordering the selected tickets, where Ticket Purchaser may initiate the payment. PayPal maintains electronic accounts for its customers, which may be topped up from their bank account via credit card payments or bank transfers. Thus, confidential credit card or bank account information will not be shared and transferred during online purchases, using the PayPal username and password is enough to process the purchase.
In order to be able to use PayPal, Ticket Purchaser must create a free account at www.paypal.hu. Following registration, Ticket Purchaser receives an activation e-mail from PayPal, which can be used to activate their account. Ticket Purchaser may assign their bank account of credit/debit card.

It is within the conciliation board’s scope of authority to settle the consumer dispute outside of court. It is conciliation board’s duty to attempt the establishment of an agreement between the parties in order to settle the consumer dispute, if conciliation board is unable to do so, then it makes a decision in the case in order to provide the simple, quick, efficient and cost efficient enforcement of consumer rights. Conciliation board provides advice regarding consumer rights and duties upon the request of consumer or company.
