ARTICLE 2 - PRICE
2.1 The prices for access badges are stated in euros, excluding tax, and value added tax at the applicable rate will be added pursuant to the applicable legal and regulatory provisions. All orders, regardless of their origin, must be paid for in euros.

When these rates are linked to the Customer's situation (age, student, disability, etc.), the Organiser will ask the Customer to justify this at the entrance to the event. If the Customer fails to produce the required proof of eligibility, they will not be able to access the event with the badge purchased and this will be to their sole detriment. In particular, the Organiser will not reimburse the Customer for said badge.
2.3 The Organiser reserves the right to change its prices at any time. Access badges will be charged based on the current rates at the time the order is validated on the Site.

Payment shall be made via the online payment platform available on the website, or onsite if applicable.
The 3 D Secure (or Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode) authentication payment system may be activated when you pay with your credit card, Visa or MasterCard: your bank verifies your identity at the time of payment.

In the absence of proof to the contrary, the data recorded by the Organiser constitutes proof of all transactions between the Organiser and its Customers.
