Terms & Conditions

General Terms and Conditions

(1) Scope and Provider

(1.1) These General Terms and Conditions (hereafter referred to as "GTC") apply to the legal relationship between 19Friends GmbH, Rudi-Dutschke-Str. 29, 10969, Berlin (hereafter referred to as "we" or "us") and the customer (hereafter referred to as "customer", "participant" or "you") in connection with the following events:

(1.2) Deviating and/or additional terms and conditions of the customer will not be part of the contract.

(2) Services

(2.1) Arrangement of participation in Dinner Roulette: We organize and arrange participation in Dinner Roulette. The execution of the Dinner Roulette itself, including the provision of venues and/or food and beverages, is the responsibility of the participants and is not part of our services.

(2.2) After Party: The After Party is hosted by us and is thus an event of the 19Friends GmbH.

(3) Conclusion of Contract with 19Friends GmbH

Your contract with us is concluded as follows: Only your order of the service is a binding offer to conclude the respective contract. To place an order, you go through the ordering process on the website and enter the requested details. Before submitting the order, you have the option to review and possibly correct all order data. Only by sending the order do you make us a binding offer to conclude a contract. We can accept your offer within five days by either:

The date of receipt of our order confirmation or payment request determines compliance with this period.

(4) Storage of Contract Terms and Contract Language

(4.1) We store the contract terms, meaning the order data/registration data, and the current GTC. You can print or save the contract terms using your browser's standard functionality (typically "Print" or "File" > "Save As"). The order data/registration data are included in the overview displayed in the last step of ordering/registration.

(4.2) The contractual language is German.

(5) Customer Account

(5.1) You are obligated to treat your access data, e.g., your password for your customer account, confidentially and to notify us immediately in case of loss or unauthorized use of your access data.

(6) Consumer Right of Revocation

(6.1) According to § 312g paragraph 2 no. 9 BGB, a consumer right of revocation does not exist, among other things, for contracts for the provision of services in the areas of accommodation for purposes other than residential purposes, transport of goods, car rental, delivery of food and beverages, and other services related to leisure activities, if the contract provides a specific date or period for the performance. Therefore, there's no right of revocation if we provide our services based on a specific schedule.

(7) Arrangement and Organization

(7.1) The arrangement and organization are based on the actual registrations of participants and the geographical location of your specified kitchen.

(7.2) Registration does not guarantee a role as a host. If suitable arrangement isn't possible, participants can solely be arranged as guests.

(8) Cancellation of Orders by the Customer and No-show

(8.1) Legal regulations in the event of termination for good cause remain unaffected. Otherwise, the following rules apply for cancellations by the customer.

(8.2) In the event of a customer's cancellation, we are entitled to charge the customer the difference between the agreed compensation and the savings or alternative earnings we might have due to the cancellation.

(8.3) Instead of calculating the exact difference as mentioned above, we can charge a flat-rate cancellation fee as follows:

  1. Cancellation up to 4 days before the event: 0% of the compensation.
  2. Cancellation up to 24 hours before the event: 50% of the compensation.
  3. Cancellation at a later time and no-show: 100% of the compensation.

If the customer proves that the difference in the aforementioned paragraph is lower, then this lower amount will apply.

(9) Duties and Obligations of the Customer

(9.1) The participant must fulfill their tasks assigned within Dinner Roulette, especially providing venues and/or food and beverages.

(9.2) If a participant cannot attend, they should notify us immediately, regardless of the deadlines in these GTC for cancellation compensation, so we can potentially find a replacement early.

(9.3) The participant must provide correct and complete information when ordering.

(9.4) Participants must adhere to the house rules at the After-Party location. Specifically, it's prohibited to:

In case of a clear intent or actual breach of house rules, entry can be denied or participants can be expelled.

(10) Limitation of Liability

(10.1) For intentional and gross negligence, also by our vicarious agents, we are liable according to legal regulations. The same applies to negligently caused damages resulting from injury to life, body, or health.

(10.2) For negligently caused material and financial losses, we are only liable in case of breach of an essential contractual obligation but limited to foreseeable, contract-typical damages at the time of contract conclusion. Essential contractual obligations are those which enable the proper execution of the contract in the first place and on whose compliance the contractual partner may regularly rely.

(10.3) Any other liability on our part, regardless of its legal basis, is excluded.

(10.4) The limitations and exclusions of liability in paragraphs (10.1) to (10.3) apply analogously in favor of our vicarious agents.

(10.5) Liability due to the assumption of a guarantee or according to the Product Liability Act remains unaffected by the exclusions and limitations of liability in paragraphs (10.1) to (10.4).

(11) Choice of Law and Jurisdiction

(11.1) Only German law applies. For consumers, this choice of law applies only insofar as the mandatory statutory provisions of the state in which the consumer has his habitual residence are not restricted.

(11.2) For transactions with merchants, legal entities of public law, or public special funds, our company's location is the place of jurisdiction. However, we are entitled to sue at the customer's location if we choose to.
