Service and usage of the Tickets
The booked tickets will be sent to the buyer exclusively by email. Service by postal delivery
is not possible.
At the entrance the principle of first access prevails – ball tickets printed out in A4 format that
have with their clear identification been accepted first, are valid. Subsequent ball tickets with
identical access rights – e.g. copied tickets – will automatically become invalid upon the first
access. The customer is only allowed to make one print copy per ball ticket.
Beyond that, he/she is not allowed to make any further printouts, or to reproduce tickets that
have already been printed out in order to gain for himself or a third person unauthorized
access to the event, or to enrich thereby himself or third persons unlawfully. The customer
must take all reasonable measures to make reproduction or duplication of the tickets by third
persons impossible. The one-way ticket code on the ball tickets will be invalidated at the
place of the event in the Imperial Palace electronically by code scanners.
Ball tickets with an invalidated code will give no access to the event. The commercial resale
of ball tickets is not permitted.
If the personalization of tickets becomes required by law or the government, we will e-mail
the purchaser before the event with detailed information about the necessary procedures.
Please note that in this case, only personalized tickets will be valid at check-in. The
personalization can be updated at any time until the ticket is redeemed at the event. A legally
or officially ordered personalization of the tickets does not constitute a reason to cancel the
Refund of Tickets
is in principle excluded. Returning or exchanging of paid tickets is not possible. Nor refund
will be paid for tickets that were not used or (e.g. by being late) only partially used, or for
tickets that have been lost for whatever reason.
Cancellation or Postponement of the Event
The ball office has no obligation to inform the ticket holders of cancellations/postponements
(if any). We will still endeavor to notify all buyers as far as it is feasible. In no case do we
take the responsibility for any travel or hotel expenses, or any other expenditures in
connection with a ball that has been cancelled or postponed to a later date.
In the case of cancellation a refund of the ticket price can only be claimed with the organizers;
the relevant procedure will be published on the ball homepage www.juristenball.at.
The ball office of the Ball of Legal Professionals is in charge of reservations, bookings, and
providing the tickets for advance sale. The prices indicated on the Ball of Legal Professionals
website or by telephone are final prices and include all charges and duties. There is an
additional handling fee per transaction.
