If you do not accept our website and/or our Terms and Conditions, we can only recommend that you stop using it.

Our Event Terms and Conditions always refer to our General Terms and Conditions of Sale.

We may decide to change our Terms and Conditions at any time, without this being reason for compensation of any kind. Any changes will, of course, only apply in the future.

 

ARTICLE 1: USING THE WEBSITE AND ASSOCIATED PORTALS

All users of our website, including the services it offers, are aware of the fact that this use is always exclusively at their own risk. We take every precaution to make sure that our website and box office are working properly, but we cannot give any absolute guarantee of this. It is possible that the user may suffer harm as a result of errors and/or viruses or other harmful elements. We cannot be held responsible for any harm whatsoever resulting from the use of the website and our box office.

It is possible that some of the content of our website may be downloaded or that certain pages may contain links to other websites or portals. Any download from our website, as well as any click to go to other pages, are at your own risk, and any harm resulting from a loss of data or damage to the IT system are wholly and exclusively the user’s responsibility.

 

ARTICLE 2: PRIVACY

After leaving our website or box office, all visitors leave some information about themselves. This information varies according to what they did on the website, so it is possible that an individual can be identified. This means that we are collecting and processing personal data.

The Privacy Policy applies to the dourfestival.eu website, as well as the domain names connected to it. This Privacy Policy and the associated processing of personal data comply with the law of 8 December 1992 on privacy in relation to the processing of personal data (the Belgian Privacy Law).

You are free to visit the website and view the information on it about the organisation, programme and associated services without providing personal data. In general, visiting and viewing the website do not automatically result in the collection and processing of the user’s personal data if it is only a question of browsing data (such as an IP address for example). Browsing data is deleted after it has been processed anonymously, but it can be used to determine who is responsible if any breaches are committed against or via the website.

Dour Music Festival saves and processes personal data willingly provided by the user (e.g. when they sign up to the newsletter, purchase products and services, etc.). This data generally includes your surname, first name, email address, telephone number and postal address, if they are provided. Each time that the user provides personal data, it will be processed by Dour Music Festival for administrative and contractual purposes, for all information relating to the sale of tickets, competitions, newsletters, etc. and to offer the best possible service.

By providing their personal data via the website, users of the website explicitly consent to Dour Music Festival processing it for the purposes indicated above.

The personal data provided via the website will be saved and processed via an electronic system managed by Dour Music Festival in a closed, secure environment. This data is only available to a certain number of people appointed and authorised to view and process it.

 

ARTICLE 3: IMAGE RIGHTS

By taking part in the festival, festivalgoers grant the organisers their image rights on the festival site and/or in the festival campsite. Festivalgoers therefore waive any right of recourse against the organisers if images are captured on the festival site and in the festival campsite as well as if they are used in the festival’s communication material in print or online. Festivalgoers can nevertheless report any photos appearing in communication material that might cause them any harm to the organiser via hello@dourfestival.eu.
