2. Registration
Registration usually takes place online via a corresponding registration form. After successful registration, you will receive a registration confirmation by e-mail.
This makes the registration legally binding.

3. Payment conditions
After registration you will receive an invoice which is due 14 days after receipt. Payments can be made by credit card or bank transfer.

4. Performance and Reservation of right of withdrawal
We reserve the right to make changes to the content and timing of the event program and the speakers. We are entitled to withdraw from the contract if an economic realization of the event is not possible due to
an insufficient number of exhibitors, sponsors or participants. This also includes any other reasons, apart from those mentioned under 4.a, which are not within the responsibility of the organizer. In this case we
will inform all participants immediately. All payments already made will be refunded immediately. Further claims of the visitor are excluded unless the organizer is guilty of intent or gross negligence.

If a federal or state restriction applies to the event period, which makes the implementation of the event impossible, the contract is subject to the resolutory condition that the implementation of the event would be prohibited one month before its contractually agreed start due to government measures on the occasion of the Corona pandemic.
The decisive factor is the prohibition on holding any events on the above-mentioned cut-off date; it is irrelevant whether the event is feasible on the agreed date [example: the condition subsequent occurs if an event planned for 01.10.2020 could not take place on 01.09.2020
due to a general ruling].

In case of termination of the contract due to the occurrence of the above-mentioned condition Silicon Saxony Management GmbH receives 15 % of the agreed remuneration as processing fee.
