Consumer means every natural person engaging in a transaction which overwhelmingly cannot be assigned to commercial or independent economic activity.
Merchant is a natural or legal entity who acts commercially or independently at the time of conclusion of a legal transaction.
gettivity offers this booking platform as a brokerage service for visitors and suppliers of free-time activities. The activities booked are not offered or affected by gettivity itself. Only the supplier of the free-time activities enters into a contractual relationship with the customer.
2. Object of these Terms and Conditions
These Terms and Conditions refer to the offers on the gettivity platform as well as placing customers with the suppliers of free-time activities.
Paragraph 7 of these terms and conditions regulates the service contract between customer and supplier.
Registering on the gettivity platform is voluntary, free of charge, and not necessary to book offers on the gettivity platform. Registration happens electronically and requires consenting to the Terms and Conditions and the Data Protection Declaration. Registration is concluded after the email address the customer supplies is confirmed.
The customer account can be deleted by the customer at any time. Likewise, gettivity can unilaterally cancel a registration at the deadline of one week. Accrued claims as well as the right to extraordinary notice of cancellation are unaffected by this.
For registration on the gettivity platform the following conditions apply:
a. those registering must be over 18
b. the password is secret and should not be shared with any third party
c. the customer account cannot be transferred nor can more than one customer account be created
4. Booking process
The offers of free-time activity supplies are not binding. The customer chooses an offer on the gettivity platform and, after checking availability, makes via a booking a binding offer to the supplier of the free-time activity. Once the customer has chosen, put their goods in the basket, and given their details, the customer clicks on the button ‘buy now’ to make a purchase. This offer is received by gettivity as an agent. After checking the availability of the free-time activity selected gettivity confirms the contract with the supplier, working as an intermediary. Finally, gettivity presents the customer with a booking confirmation in the name and under contract of the supplier, certain information relating to use of the free-time activity and a payment confirmation.
Accepted methods of payment (credit card, PayPal, Sofort Überweisung) are shown to the customer during the booking process. After selecting the payment method, the customer authorizes the payment and accepts that payment information can be used to collection the funds.
Prices of the free-time activities offered as shown including VAT and apply to each person. In certain cases the prices determined by the supplier are subject to certain conditions, such as age restrictions for selected child’s prices.
7. Conditions for free-time activity suppliers
General preliminary remarks
a. The free-time activity booked is carried out in the name and at the cost of the relevant supplier of free-time activities.
b. The contract between the customer and the supplier of free-time activities is concluded by the acceptance of the customer’s binding offer (see Booking process).
c. Times and time limits are calculated on the basis of the suppliers time zone
Meeting point, Conditions & Notes on participation
a. The customer is responsible for their punctual appearance at the agreed time. In addition, the customer is responsible for meeting and keeping requirements at the activity location, such as rules around travel and health.
b. The supplier has the possibility to make providing an activity dependent on the customer meeting certain requirements (body size, weight, health situation etc.). The explicit conditions are found in the offer description. The customer is responsible for the fulfilment and meeting of these conditions. The supplier retains the right to exclude customers from an activity if the conditions are not met. In this case a refund is not available.
c. Furthermore, the supplier is justified in excluding a customer from a booked activity if this would endanger the customer or other participants or would lastingly disrupt the activity. In this case a refund is not available.
d. The prices shown for free-time activities do not include insurance. As such, the customer is themselves responsible for obtaining adequate insurance.
The payment of the entire price of the free-time activity gettivity has brokered is due once the contract is concluded. If the total is not paid after the payment due date, the supplier is entitled to issue a warning and then, having set a deadline, to withdraw from the contract and in according to Article 1124 of the Spanish Civil Code (Real Decretory July 24 1889) demand cancellation fees.
Right of revocation
The cancellation can occur with 14 days notice without naming of grounds in the form of a text (letter, email). The notice period begins following receipt of this text, although not before the goods have arrived with the customer. Sending the cancellation notice off in time is sufficient for the cancellation period to be granted.
The cancellation right is excluded from tours and activities which occur at a fixed date or time period.
In the case of an effective cancellation, services supplied on both sides are to be returned. Repayment commitments must be met within 30 days. The period begins for the customer when the cancellation notice is sent, and for the provider when they are received.
When not otherwise detailed in the description of the free-time activities, the following cancellation conditions apply:
– Cancellation up to 5 days before the beginning of the booked free-time activity: complete refund
– Cancellation less than 5 days before the beginning of the booked free-time activity or no-show: no refund
Exceptional cancellation & Minimum participants
a. The supplier can cancel the scheduled free-time activity without observing a cancellation period if weather conditions, official measures, strikes, unpredictable or unavoidable circumstances make the provision of a free-time activity impossible or make it more difficult or dangerous. In this case a refund is not available. The right to damages or other demands are excluded.
b. In addition, the supplier can cancel the agreed appointment with a notice period of 3 days if the minimum number of participants for an activity is not reached. The requirement to a minimum number of participants only applies to certain free-time activities, and this information is given in the description of the free-time activity. In this case a refund is not available. The right to damages or other demands are excluded.
The supplier reserves the right to make changes to the program of a non-essential nature if this is necessary from unpredictable or unavoidable circumstances.
The supplier is liable for the applicable law for their services. Liability is only assumed when covered by applicable law.
The legal relationship between the customer and the supplier of the free-time activity is subject to the relevant applicable law.

13. Closing provisions
Spanish law applies under the UN CSIG. If you at the time of booking are domiciled in another country and have made the booking as a consumer, the application of binding legislation of this country is not affected by the governing law referred to Paragraph 1.
Exclusive place of jurisdiction is Spain to the extent that you are a merchant in the sense of the commercial code. Legally-mandated places of jurisdiction remain unaffected.
If individual regulations of these Terms & Conditions should be or become ineffective, that does not affect the effectiveness of the remaining regulations.
These Terms & Conditions are directed by the legal provisions of Spanish consumer protection law (RDL 1/2007 of November 16 Texto refundido de la Ley general para la defensa de consumidores y usuarios) and the General Terms and Conditions Act (Ley 7/1998, April 7 on ‘Condiciones Generales de Contratación’) whose regulations are also to be applied and have been applied to everything not explicitly mentioned in this document.
