Terms and conditions of participation

Established by the ESN Geneva committee on 11 November 2013 (approved by the GA on 11 November 2013)

1. Scope of application

The present general conditions regulate participation in the events and activities organized by the Erasmus Student Network Geneva (hereafter: ESN Geneva).

2. Registration

2.1. Mandatory nature of registration and related modalities

Registration is mandatory for participation in all activities indicated that are organized by ESN Geneva. One can only register during office hours (usually referred to as “permanence”) announced in advance on Facebook page and/or group of ESN Geneva and its website (http://geneva.esn.ch). The participation fees are to be paid, at the latest, during the registration.

2.2. Mandatory nature of registration

Registration for an event is definitive and cannot be reimbursed. A participant is in particular not entitled to reimbursement of event fees in case of a withdrawal of his/her participation. If a registered participant is unable to participate, another person who holds an ESN card can replace the person registered, provided that they obtain a prior consent of the organizers. The participant registered is responsible for finding a suitable replacement. In case of a last minute withdrawal from an event or inability to come to the departure, the registered person must inform the organizers as soon as possible, preferably by telephone or via a private message on Facebook.

3. Refusal of registration or exclusion from participation

In case of inappropriate behaviour, ESN Geneva reserves a right to refuse to register the person concerned for an event, or exclude him/her from participating at an event. Such exclusion does not entitle a right of the person concerned to a reimbursement of the event registration fee.

4. Modification or cancellation

ESN Geneva reserves a right to modify the program of an event or cancel an event entirely. In case of a cancellation, the registered participants will be informed 24 hours before the supposed event at the latest. The registration fees are reimbursed only under the condition that ESN Geneva is reimbursed as well for the costs incurred in event organization.

5. Exemption from responsibility

Subject to gross negligence or willful misconduct within the meaning of Article 100 paragraph 1 of the Swiss Code of Obligations, the ESN Geneva as well as members of its committees reject any liability for damage sustained during participation in an event organized by ESN Geneva.
