General Terms and Conditions of Reed Exhibitions Deutschland GmbH for Sponsorship Contracts 1. General 1.1 These General Terms and Conditions lay down the legal relationship between Reed Exhibitions Deutschland GmbH, Völklinger Straße 4, 40219 Düsseldorf (hereafter „the Organiser“), and the Sponsor of the event being held by the Organiser. 1.2 The General Terms and Conditions of the Sponsor carry no validity for the contractual relationship between the Organiser and the Sponsor. 2. Scope 2.1 The Sponsor shall provide sponsorship for the relevant event staged by the Organiser on the basis of the contractual agreement between the parties. 2.2 The Sponsor is aware that the Organiser will be enlisting further sponsors for the event. The Sponsor is expressly entitled to admit companies to the event which are in competition with the Sponsor, to function as further sponsors and/ or exhibitors or other participants. 2.3 The sponsorship does not entitle the Sponsor to exert influence on the form and content etc. of the Organiser’s event. 3. Payment terms 3.1 The sponsorship fee to be paid by the Sponsor to the Organiser is due on the date on which the Organiser’s invoice is received by the Sponsor. 3.2 If the Sponsor is in arrears with payments to the Organiser, the Sponsor shall pay interest on the sum due at the rate of the current legal default interest rate, i.e. 8 percentage points above the base interest rate in accordance with Article 247 of the German Civil Code, but at least 8% p.a. on the sum due to the Organiser. The Organiser reserves the right to press further delay damage claims. The onus lies upon the Sponsor to prove that no damage was incurred, or that it was much lower than the figure named above. 4. Liability disclaimer 4.1 If the event cannot be held, due to reasons for which the Organiser is responsible, the Organiser is obliged to return any payment the Sponsor has made to him. The Sponsor is not entitled to press any further claims in this case. 4.2 If the event is prevented from being held, either in full or in part, or in the manner originally planned, by unforeseen circumstances over which the Organiser has no control, especially as the result of force majeure, the Organiser is entitled to withdraw from the contract. The Organiser is obliged to inform the Sponsor immediately of the full or partial impossibility of holding the event, and, in the case of it being impossible to hold the event, to refund any payments already made, or in the case of it only being possible to hold the event to a limited extent, to refund the corresponding proportion of the payments. The Sponsor is not entitled to press any further claims in this case. Force majeure constitutes e.g. terrorist attacks, epidemics (especially SARS), natural disasters, structural changes made by the landlord, water damage and officially decreed clearance or closure. In the event of the Sponsor’s not achieving the communication aims being pursued by entering into the contract, the Organiser carries no liability above and beyond providing the contractually agreed services, unless the Organiser has impeded or frustrated such achievement by culpably breaching fundamental contractual obligations. 4.3 With the exception of damages arising from injury to life and limb or to health, the Organiser excludes all liability to the Sponsor unless it is due to grossly negligent breach of contract on the part of the Organiser or on wilful or grossly negligent breach of contract on the part of a legal representative or subcontractor of the Organiser. In all cases, the Organiser’s liability is restricted to foreseeable damage as per standard contract provisions. 5. Confidentiality 5.1 The Sponsor undertakes not to disclose to third parties any information concerning the Organiser and the event to which he gains knowledge while collaborating with the Organiser which is not generally accessible, and to maintain secrecy regarding such information towards third parties. 5.2 The obligation as stipulated in paragraph 5.1 above remains valid even after termination of the contractual relationship between the Organiser and the Sponsor. 6. Final provisions 6.1 There are no verbal sub-agreements. Any changes and supplements to these General Terms and Conditions must be made in writing. This also applies for any change or supplement to, or cancellation of, these General Terms and Conditions. 6.2 Should any of the above provisions of these General Terms and Conditions prove invalid, or become so in the future, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. The parties undertake to substitute the invalid provision with a valid provision which most closely reflects the business purpose of the invalid one. 6.3 The exclusive court of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from and in relation to the contractual relationship and its execution, and these General Terms and Conditions, is Düsseldorf. 6.4 The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies exclusively to this agreement; the UN CISG is excluded. 6.5 Only the German version of the Sponsorship Contract between the Organiser and the Exhibitor and of these General Terms and Conditions of the Organiser for Sponsorship Contracts for the event shall be authoritative.
