1.2 These General Terms and Conditions are designed to ensure customers' full understanding of the online ticket booking process of Scorpio. Scorpio however reserves the right to change these General Terms and Conditions from time to time, with said changes entering into force once they are published on the website of Scorpio: www.fkpscorpio.be (the “Website”). For this purpose, we kindly request you to consult the General Terms and Conditions on the Website regularly.
1.3 Any breach of these General Terms and Conditions will lead to the loss of the right to access the event in question, with no payment of damages and with the Digital Ticket in question being declared void.
1.4 Should certain provisions of these General Terms and Conditions appear invalid or unenforceable, this shall not affect the legality, validity or enforceability of all other provisions of these General Terms and Conditions.
2. Event attendance and personalization of digital tickets
2.1 All digital tickets issued by or on behalf of Scorpio (the “Digital Tickets”) are personalized, i.e. only the person who is the holder of the Digital Ticket and right of attendance implied therein has the right to demand admission to the event. The right to attend the events of Scorpio shall only exist on the basis of the visitor contract (event attendance contract), which the visitor has concluded with the Organizer (in the context of his Ticket order).
2.2 Proof that the visitor is a contractual partner and has thus also acquired the right to visit the event shall be provided by presenting the personalized Digital Ticket and - at the request of the Organizer or of the persons authorized by the Organizer- a photo ID. The Organizer reserves the right to refuse admission to the event, in particular by blocking the Digital Ticket, to ticket holders who have not acquired or cannot prove that they have the right to attend the event. If the Organizer allows the holder of the Digital Ticket to enter, it shall also be released from its obligation to perform vis-à-vis the contractual partner if the ticket holder is not identical to the contractual partner entitled to attend the event.
2.3 A further prerequisite for attending the event is that the visitor shows the Digital Ticket bearing his/her first and last name or scans it into the reader upon entry to the event.
2.4 The Organizer shall provide the visitor with a Digital Ticket in the "EventimPASS" or “Ticketmaster” app for each Digital Ticket booked and (fully) paid for. A Digital Ticket entitles only one person at a time to admission to the booked event. If a purchaser acquires several Digital Tickets, these will only be displayed on his mobile device.
2.5 A third party whose name is not listed on the Digital Ticket shall only be granted access to the event if he or she enters the event at the same time as the person whose name is listed on the Digital Tickets. Upon entry to the event, the mobile end device of the purchaser shall be passed on to any other visitor in his presence for scanning the respective authorization code into the reader. By presenting the Digital Ticket at the entrance to the event (in particular by scanning the authorization code into the reader), the visitor declares that he/she is authorized to attend the event.
3. Passing on of Digital Tickets, official secondary market platform and contractual penalty
3.1 The sale of Digital Tickets is exclusively for private, non-commercial use by the visitor; any commercial resale of the Digital Tickets by the visitor is prohibited. A private transfer of a Digital Ticket for non-commercial reasons, in particular in individual cases of illness or other prevention of the ticket purchaser, is permissible under the conditions specified in the following section 3.3 and if there is no case of inadmissible transfer in the sense of the regulation in the following section 3.3.
3.2 The Customer may solely transfer the rights and obligations arising from the Digital Ticket (i.e. the Visitor Contract, and thus also the right to visit) to a third party only if (i) the third party enters into the Visitor Contract in its place, assuming all rights and obligations and (ii) upon obtaining the prior consent of the Organizer, which is hereby granted in advance under the conditions contained in section 3.3. The transfer of Digital Tickets and individual rights from the visitors' contract, in particular the right to visit, is excluded in the absence of one of the conditions described in (i) and (ii). If a contractual partner of the Organizer has permissibly acquired several visiting rights within the framework of a visiting contract and permissibly assigns these visiting rights to several third parties, separate visiting contracts shall be concluded with the entering persons.
3.3 The purchaser may in no event (re)sell Digital Tickets against a price exceeding the initial total purchase price of the Digital Tickets. In order to prevent the resale of Digital Tickets at excessive prices, i.e. in the interest of maintaining an appropriate price structure, to prevent criminal offences in connection with the visit to the event and to enforce house bans, (i) the consent of the Organizer as provided under section 3. 2 and this section is required and (ii) Digital Tickets may solely be resold by using the ticket exchange platforms operated by our distribution partner (i) CTS EVENTIM AG & Co. KGaA ("CTS") and (ii) TICKETMASTER (the “Authorized Ticket Exchange Platforms”).
In the following cases, the consent of the Organizer to the resale of Digital Tickets (and thus the entry of a third party into the Visitor Contract) is expressly not granted:
the sale of Tickets outside the Authorized Ticket Exchange Platforms;
the sale of Digital Tickets within the framework of auctions not authorized by the Organizer (in particular on the Internet) or via Internet marketplaces/ticket exchanges not authorized by the Organizer itself or through third parties authorized by the Organizer;
a commercial sale of Digital Tickets without the express prior written consent of the Organizer;
the sale (including transfer free of charge) of Digital Tickets for the purpose of advertising, marketing, as a bonus, promotional gift, prize or part of an unauthorized hospitality or travel package;
the sale (including the transfer free of charge) of visiting rights or Digital Tickets without express reference to these General Terms and Conditions, in particular to the restrictions on transfer set out in this section 3.
3.4 Passing on or reselling visiting rights or Digital Tickets in violation of the cases mentioned in section 3.3 is prohibited. The same shall apply to the offering of visiting rights or Digital Tickets if the resale or transfer corresponding to the offer would violate the cases specified in section 3.3. For each violation of one of these prohibitions, the purchaser shall be obliged to pay a contractual penalty, the amount of which is to be determined by the Organizer based on (i) the number of Digital Tickets offered or passed on in breach of these General Terms and Conditions, (ii) the amount of the resale prices and (iii) in general, the (direct or indirect) damages or losses suffered by the Organizer. Any other contractual penalties shall be taken into account when determining the contractual penalty. Claims for damages by Scorpio shall remain unaffected, whereby the contractual penalties shall be offset against claims for damages based on the same facts.
3.5 In the event of a breach of the prohibition pursuant to section 3.4, the Organizer shall be entitled to withdraw from the purchaser his/her visitor contract and to block the Digital Tickets or the authorization code and to refuse the ticket holder attendance at the event. The Organizer shall also have the right to withdraw from the purchaser any other visitor contracts.

3.8 In the event the purchaser violates any of the prohibitions pursuant to section 3.3, the Organizer reserves the right, without prejudice to its contractual freedom, to exclude the purchaser from purchasing tickets in the future at its reasonable discretion and, if necessary, to initiate further legal measures.
3.9 In the event a purchaser wishes to resell or transfer his/her Digital Tickets, in accordance with section 3.3 to any third party, the purchaser must communicate the General Terms and Conditions to that party. The purchaser shall indemnify the Organizer against any (direct and indirect) damages incurred by the Organizer due to the fact that the third party purchasing the Digital Tickets did not gain knowledge of the General Terms and Conditions.
4. Resale of Digital Tickets via the Authorized Ticket Exchange Platforms
4.1 As of SEPTEMBER 25, 2021, purchasers of Digital Tickets shall have the possibility to return or resell Digital Tickets on the Authorized Ticket Exchange Platforms, under the conditions listed below.

6. Special regulations during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic
6.1 The following special provisions apply to attendance, access and stay at events that must take place under special conditions or requirements imposed by an authority due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic ("Corona pandemic").
6.2 The visitor acknowledges that during the Corona pandemic, events may not be able to take place in the usual form due to official requirements. This means, in particular, that for these reasons it is possible that the visitor will not be able to attend events for which he/she originally acquired the right to attend, or will not be able to attend them as intended.
6.3 The Organizer is entitled, e.g. in order to comply with distance areas or protection and hygiene requirements, to subsequently convert standing room into seating or to assign the ticket holder seats of the same category that differ from the seats ordered; in this case, the ticket holder shall have no claim to compensation vis-à-vis the Organizer, and the Organizer shall assume no liability, whatsoever.
6.4 In connection with the purchase of Digital Tickets for events during the Corona pandemic, it may occur, e.g. in the event of a by the Belgian government imposed reduction of the originally permitted number of visitors in the event of an increase in the number of infections in connection with the Corona pandemic, that the visitor is actually unable to attend an event for which he has purchased a right of attendance or received a Digital Ticket. As the case may be, the purchaser acknowledges that the Organizer is entitled to cancel originally allocated Digital Tickets or purchased visiting rights in individual cases. In this case, too, the selection of the Digital Tickets concerned will be made by means of a transparent, non-discriminatory procedure in accordance with predefined specifications. In this case, the visitor will receive a refund of the Digital Ticket price that he/she had fully paid; service, transaction and shipping fees will not be refunded.
6.5 Admission to the event may further be denied, without any compensation being due by the Organizer, if the ticket holder:
violates any applicable hygiene and behavioral guidelines, in particular, is unable to present a valid “CovidSafe”-certificate (i.e. proof of vaccination against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, proof of recovery and/or proof of an approved SARS-CoV-2-test that is not older than 24 hours at the time of entry of the event);
is infected with SARS-CoV-2 ("Coronavirus"), has knowingly been in contact with a person who has tested positive for the Coronavirus or has typical symptoms of an infection with the Coronavirus (typical symptoms are, for example: Respiratory symptoms of any severity, fever, impairment of sense of smell and taste);
has stayed in a risk area, high-risk area or virus variant area within the last 14 days before the start of the event, prohibiting the purchaser to attend the event pursuant to any applicable SARS-CoV-2-measures (e.g. quarantine, mandatory testing, etc.).
6.6 In the event the Organizer is obliged or urged (e.g. in the event of protective and hygiene measures imposed by the Belgian authorities), to meet certain requirements or to acquire certain information or proof from the purchaser prior to the purchase of a Digital Ticket and/or to admission to the event (e.g. proof of vaccination, convalescence or negative test results, obligation to wear a mask, declarations on health status, stay in risk areas), the Organizer shall be entitled, within the limits permitted by data protection law, to obtain such proof and/or declarations from each visitor and to check compliance with the specified requirements. The purchaser acknowledges and agrees that in the event he/she does not comply with the applicable requirements or fails to deliver the requested proof or declarations, the purchaser shall be denied access to the event or denied access to purchase the Digital Tickets.
6.7 In order to trace infection chains as part of measures to combat the Corona pandemic the Organizer may be obliged or urged to record the visitor's contact details and, if necessary, pass them on to the authorities at their request. The Purchaser acknowledges this and acknowledges that it cannot hold the Organizer liable for such actions whatsoever. In particular, in the event of a verifiable infection of a person with the coronavirus during the event, the Organizer may be obliged to pass on this data and the time of the visit to the competent health authority so that the latter can contact the visitor in order to trace and interrupt chains of infection as quickly as possible. The health authority then contacts the visitor and, if necessary, requests the contact data of the other ticket users who were in the stadium together with the visitor. When ordering a Digital Ticket or accepting the corresponding Digital Ticket via the digital ticket counter, each purchaser therefore undertakes to provide the required data (name, address, contact details) of each visitor who will be entering the event together with the purchaser.
