(1) These terms and conditions of use apply to the use of all services and services of our portal https://musicgrounds.net, represented by the portal operator Paul Bittenbring, Dr.-Kurt-Schumacher-Ring 10, 64720 Michelstadt (hereinafter: "portal"), which you visit and use as our portal visitor (hereinafter: "user"). We do not recognise any deviating or conflicting terms and conditions unless we have expressly agreed to them.

(2) Insofar as special services or performances are offered on the portal (e.g. user accounts, marketing of advertising banners), additional special terms of use may apply. The user will be informed of this separately. Special terms of use take precedence over these general terms of use insofar as they contain deviating provisions.

(3) If services are provided by cooperation partners or third parties, additional general terms and conditions of the partners/third parties may apply. The user will be informed of this separately. If services or performances of third parties are provided to the user via the portal, contractual relationships (e.g. in case of ticket purchase) arise only between the user and the third party.

§ 2 Services of the portal; contractual relationships

(2) The user can obtain information about events on the portal. He can do this by entering several search criteria in the search field, such as a city and/or a date.

(3) In the search result, he finds various events related to his search.

(4) In the search result, the user will find information about the event searched for, such as a link to the organiser, information about the event and/or a link to the online ticket sales portal.
