Via Proudr you have the possibility to register for events of UHLALA GmbH or to book tickets with costs.
Members also have the possibility to create their own events in the feed or to refer to events. For events created in this way, it is not possible to register via the Proudr platform or book tickets for a fee. The booking is usually linked. UHLALA GmbH / Proudr is not responsible for the content of the events and the handling of payment.
By purchasing or registering for an event organized by UHLALA GmbH via the Proudr platform, a contract regarding the right to attend the event arises exclusively between the respective participant and the organizer.
The following terms and conditions apply to bookings via the Proudr platform for which a fee is charged:
The participant assures that he is of legal age at the time of registration.
The organizer submits an oﬀer for the conclusion of a sales contract with the information given for the respective event. The participant accepts his oﬀer for the conclusion of a sales contract by clicking on the button "Book now" / "Register now"
Immediately after the conclusion of the contract, the participant will receive a confirmation e-mail confirming the conclusion of the purchase contract to the e-mail address specified by him in the profile. The participant is obliged to inform the
organizer if he has not received this confirmation e-mail or has not received it in time.
The total purchase price is calculated from the price determined by UHLALA GmbH for the respective event registration and already includes the statutory turnover tax.
In the case of registrations requiring payment, a confirmation of payment will be sent by e-mail to the e-mail address provided by the participant when placing the order after receipt of payment.
An incorrectly issued confirmation message and registration will be corrected by UHLALA GmbH. It is the participant's responsibility to check the correctness of the confirmation message sent to him/her in order to arrange for a corrected confirmation
message to be sent in good time before the start of the event.
The payment process is handled via the payment service Stripe. Stripe's current data protection regulations can be found at
Invoice amounts are to be paid without deductions and in one payment transaction. Partial or installment payments are not permitted. A subsequent change of the payment method is not possible. If a payment cannot be allocated at all or on time
due to missing or incorrect data, the booking is considered open and the space is therefore not reserved.
The registration is considered complete only with the complete receipt of payment. Payment must be received at the latest one working day before the start of the event. It is the participant's responsibility to decide whether this is possible with regard to
the booking date. Payment after the start of the event is possible in individual cases by prior arrangement.
Proudr reserves the right to set a payment date. Participants will be informed of this in the information on the event. If payment is not received on time, Proudr has the
right to cancel the registration. The participant thereby loses his right to participate. UHLALA GmbH shall not be liable for any costs incurred by the participant as a result of registration or cancellation of registration due to non-payment.
Should fees or currency diﬀerences arise for payments from abroad, these must be borne in full by the participant.
For cancellations, the deadlines communicated in the respective event announcement / Cancellation Policy apply.
If an event is cancelled or postponed by UHLALA GmbH, the participant has the right of return and the right to reimbursement of the ticket price. The cancellation of registrations is regulated by UHLALA GmbH and is carried out via the refund function
via the payment service Stripe. Contact can be made via the Proudr platform and the UHLALA GmbH website.
Without guarantee it is pointed out that the participant is only entitled to the legal right of withdrawal in Germany if the following conditions are fulfilled:
The event for which the participant acquires a registration takes place at a specific time or within a specified time frame and is not intended for the participant's leisure activities
The participant acquires the registration as a consumer in the sense of § 13 BGB and not in the context of the exercise of his commercial or self- employed professional activity
The organizer organizes the event within the scope of his commercial or self-employed professional activity.
For events created by members, the booking conditions of the respective organiser apply. Proudr has no influence on them and is not responsible for the contents of these conditions. The participant himself is responsible for informing himself about
any existing booking or general terms and conditions of the organiser before registering for an event.
