Terms and Conditions

Registrations

By registering, the participant expressly agrees to these general terms and conditions.

The minimum age for participation in a weekend is 18 years. 

The 4th Musketeer has the right to refuse the registration of participants.

A minimum number of participants applies for a weekend. The 4th Musketeer reserves the right to cancel the weekend if there are too few registrations. If this is the case, you will be informed no later than 1 month before departure. The paid registration fee will be refunded.

Suppose the participant has registered for a weekend for which the participant must book a flight ticket. In that case, the participant may not book a ticket until the 4th Musketeer has indicated whether the weekend will go ahead. Naturally, the aim is to report whether the weekend will take place as quickly as possible. The 4th Musketeer cannot be held liable for the costs of a flight ticket in the event of cancellation if a participant has booked the ticket too early.

In the event of force majeure, the 4th Musketeer has the right to cancel the weekend or to adjust it before or during the weekend without the 4th Musketeer being held liable for any damage. Force majeure occurs when abnormal and unforeseen circumstances arise that are independent of the will of the person invoking them and the consequences of which cannot be avoided, despite all precautions. This includes war, natural disasters, political unrest, general scarcity, strikes, epidemics, states of emergency or similar situations. In this case, there will be no refund of the registration fee.

In some cases, allergies and dietary requirements can be considered, after prior notification to the 4th Musketeer. However, full implementation cannot be guaranteed, and special diets will not be accommodated unless medically necessary, Any additional costs will be borne by the participant. A separate invoice will be sent for this.

Participation entails additional costs for the participant that are at the participant's own expense, such as the costs for transport to the starting location of the weekend, the necessary equipment, a visa, and any necessary vaccinations (if required).

PAYMENT AND CANCELLATION

Media

Media images are made during an event. These images, in which the participant may appear, can be used for promotional purposes. The participant does not receive any compensation for this.

Photos and films that can be taken during the weekend are primarily intended to be shared with the participants of that weekend. Secondary, images can be used for promotional purposes (online).

If images of you are not allowed to appear online or if you subsequently see published images in which you appear and do not wish to see them published, please let us know as soon as possible.

An Event

If the participant causes such a nuisance that it makes or could make the implementation of the weekend significantly more difficult or endangers the safety of himself or others or deals with nature and the environment in an irresponsible manner, the participant's (further) participation in the weekend will be excluded. All resulting additional costs will be borne by the excluded participant.

If the participant deviates from the recommended route or the recommended time or travel schedule and therefore must incur additional costs, these costs will be borne by the participant.

The participant is obliged to use the material made available in a manner for which it is intended by virtue of its nature and the agreement. The participant must report any defects upon receipt of the material and have them recorded. The participant may not make any changes to the material or allow it to be used by third parties without permission from the 4th Musketeer. The participant will inform the 4th Musketeer as soon as possible, but no later than the end of the weekend, of any damage or loss of materials.
