 3. PURCHASE OF TICKETS ON THE EVENT WEBSITE To participate in one of our Events such as Paris Blockchain Week Summit, the Attendee must purchase his ticket directly on the Event Website within the "Tickets" section.The Attendee can order as many tickets as the platform will allow, depending on the available quotas, and the type of the ticket asked for.The Attendee undertakes to pay the Organiser the amount corresponding to the ticket price and the category chosen when they confirm their order via the website.Once a successful ticket transaction has been completed, tickets are delivered in electronic soft-copy via email to the email address nominated by the Attendee. The ticket acts as a receipt and an invoice will be sent automatically by email to the buyer indicated in the process after full PAYMENT.IN any case the tickets remain our property and is a personal revocable licence, which may be withdrawn, and admission to an event may be refused at any time upon a refund of the amount paid by the Attendee for the registration. 

 4. TICKETS CATEGORIES & RIGHTS ATTACHED TO THE TICKETS a. Tickets categories ‍Several categories of tickets may be proposed at a time on the website. As an example, we do offer special prices for developers, startups or students that come with strict eligibility rules. All details will always be stated clearly on the Event WEBSITE.IT is up to the Attendee to choose a ticket corresponding to his category and his situation. If an Attendee has purchased a ticket that does not correspond to his category, they won’t benefit from any of the rights attached to the ticket, and in particular will not be able to access the Event, without being able to claim a refund of the ticket in question.Also, in the event of a fraudulent use of promotional codes, the Organiser can automatically cancel the registration. In this case, the Attendee accepts that the Organiser could withhold a financial compensation of 15% of the order, including tax, as management fees on the refund of the ticket price. The Attendee will be informed by email to the address provided at the time of registration. This procedure may be performed until 2 days before the Event date. ‍ b. Name transfers, refunds ‍As a general rule tickets are nominative and they can’t be transferred to a third party unless an exception is granted by the Organiser to a specific person or to a specific category of tickets. To avoid any misunderstanding that means that we do not accept ticket name changes even if for whatever reason the owner of a ticket may not be able to access the conference. This is the case for most category of tickets, including the individual free tickets for media and speakers and the tickets supplied to the partners in relation with their sponsorship PACKAGES.AS an exception to the above stated rule, some tickets may explicitly be sold with a clear indication that a name transfer will be possible and of the date until which this flexibility will be granted (the limit date). The owner of such tickets will have the right to ask for a transfer of its ticket to a third party until the limit DATE.TO use that right the attendee will have to send before the limit date an email to the address CONTACT@BLOCKCHAINWEEKPARIS.COM with in attachment the electronic ticket they received and all the information regarding the new owner of the ticket. We will then void the original ticket at buying time and send them a code to be used in less than 5 working days to give to the new owner for them to register by themself on our platform instead of the original ticket owner. Failure to follow any part of that procedure may result in the impossibility to use that transferability right by the attendee. If you are not able to attend, please send an email to CONTACT@BLOCKCHAINWEEKPARIS.COM. 2 weeks before the event no refunds will be done. ‍ c. Access to conference rooms ‍Inside a specific Event, interventions will take place within several rooms in the Venue, and locations of those conferences will be fixed by the Organiser.

Only access to the Event is guaranteed; depending on the number of visitors, some areas may be full at one point. 

 5. TICKET PRICES AND PAYMENT OF THE ORDER Ticket prices are displayed on the Event Website. Ticket prices for an Event are correct at the time of publication. We reserve the right to change the ticket prices at any time but any changes will not affect tickets that have already been purchased.A valid ticket entitles you to entry to the relevant Event as an Attendee, but does not include any requirements associated with travel to or from the Event or any accommodation costs incurred, and we shall have no liability for such costs or expenses. Prices are shown excluding tax. It being noted that the VAT rate applied is the French VAT rate of 20%. To comply with European and French regulations on VAT applicable to events, this VAT will always be billed when you buy a ticket on our platform, wherever in the world you are situated and whatever your status is. ‍ The price may vary depending on, among other criteria: The ticket categories: Executive Pass, Developer Pass, Sponsor, etc…; The date of the order, especially according to usual Super Early Bird and Early Bird discounts limited in time and quantity, The days the Attendee chooses to participate, (all days of the Event or part of them), if the Organiser decides to sell tickets that are valid for only part of the Event; Any promotions and partnerships with media and/or associations and/or businesses allowing the Attendee to benefit from specific discounts. ‍ We are not obligated to offer any discounts for a particular Event and reserve the right to change or withdraw a discount offer at any time at our sole discretion.The Attendee must first accept his order by clicking on the "checkout" button. He will then have access to a summary of his order, including the category chosen and the corresponding price, including any discounts related to the use of a reduction coupon. In case of error in the choice of category, the Attendee will be able to correct this error by returning to the order page. Once the Attendee has clicked on the tab "confirm registration" after having received the order summary, the contract of sale will be definitively concluded and the order will be firm and final.Therefore, upon confirmation of the order, the Attendee undertakes to pay the price corresponding to the ticket using the means of payment selected.
