1. Tickets

Upon purchasing a ticket, the visitors to the cinema accept any safety, access, age or other restrictions and/or regulations in force, and acknowledges that failure to comply with these restrictions/regulations may lead to them being excluded from the event without compensation.

Ticket purchases cannot be revoked, modified or cancelled by the festival visitor. A return or exchange of tickets is excluded. Lost and damaged tickets will not be replaced.

The purchase of tickets for business or commercial purposes is strictly forbidden. Violation of this condition may result in the loss of any services associated with the purchased tickets, as well as a demand being made to the seller and ticket purchaser for compensation and the return to the Frame Organiser of the profits made from those tickets. Violation of this condition may result in the violators being excluded from purchasing tickets.

Tickets are to be presented at the entrance area of the respective theatre in a condition that ensures machine readability. It is the sole responsibility of the visitor to have a sufficiently charged smart phone.

By purchasing a ticket, the purchaser and ticket holder accept the Frame Organiser’s contractual conditions. For other Contractual Partners of the Frame Organiser, these General Terms and Conditions form an accepted part of the contract.

2. Vouchers

By purchasing vouchers, moviegoers acknowledge the safety, admission, age, and other implementing regulations and acknowledge that they may be excluded from the event without compensation if they fail to comply with these regulations.

Ticket prices, cash or kiosk purchases are deducted from the current balance. The current balance can be called up on site after presenting the voucher at the Frame desk. Buyers can also choose whether they would like to purchase physical gift cards at the Frame desk or have them sent to a shipping address in Switzerland for a fee of CHF 5.

Any trading of purchased vouchers, in particular for commercial or business purposes, is prohibited. Infringements may result in the loss of the benefits associated with the vouchers purchased and in claims for damages and the return of profits against the previous buyers of the vouchers and the purchasers. People who violate these terms and conditions may be excluded from purchasing vouchers.

Vouchers must be handed out at the entrance to the cinema in such a way that they can be read by a machine. In the case of electronic vouchers, it is the responsibility of the visitor to have a charged mobile phone.
