explained, the following words and expressions are explained as follows:

Registration Fee: the cost of participation in an Activity excluding VAT in Euros;
Other party: any person or legal entity that has an agreement with AXVECO.

Counterparty no longer wishes to participate in the Activity.

expressly rejected.

Article 3. Establishment of the agreement

3.1 All offers and quotations made by AXVECO are without obligation, unless expressly stated otherwise in writing.

3.3 Registrations are considered accepted by AXVECO only when AXVECO has sent a written confirmation (or email) to the Participant. The agreement with the Other Party is established by this confirmation.
3.4 If the registration limit for an Activity is exceeded, the date on which AXVECO received payment of the Entry Fee will be used as the selection criterion. The non-admitted Participant will be notified as soon as possible.
3.5 Reservation of participation in an Activity by the Other Party is only valid for three weeks and expires after the expiry of that period.
3.6 AXVECO is entitled to transfer the rights and obligations under the agreement or part thereof with the Other Party to a third party. The Other Party then has the right to terminate the agreement with AXVECO.

Article 4. Substitution

A Participant is permitted to be substituted, provided this is made known to AXVECO in writing prior to the start of the Activity.

Article 10. Force majeure

Article 11. Documentation

12.2 The Other Party and the Participant have a right of inspection and correction with respect to the personal data recorded about them. In addition, the customer has the opportunity to object to AXVECO against processing operations to be specified.
12.3 AXVECO will only provide data to third parties if required by legal regulations, on the basis of urgent and weighty reasons, insofar as the privacy of the Other Party and the Participant is not disproportionately harmed by this and/or if AXVECO transfers the rights and/or obligations under this Agreement or part of it to a third party in the sense of Article 3.6.

13.1 All disputes between the parties arising from the agreement or directly or indirectly related thereto shall be adjudicated in the first instance by the competent court in Utrecht.
