Performance Sport Switzerland provides online registration services for sports events. Through its sales platform (performancetiming.ch), Performance Sport Switzerland enables a contract to be concluded directly between the customer (participant/athlete) and the organiser concerned.
The terms and conditions ("GC") are the basis for using the site to take advantage of services such as the purchase of entries via the ticketing system. By selecting the checkbox: "I have read the terms and conditions and accept", the customer confirms that he/she has read, understood and accepted the terms and conditions.
Prices are in Swiss francs or Euros, net. The calculation of VAT is shown in the confirmations/invoices only if the Organizer is subject to it.
2. Terms of payment and refund
Payment methods vary according to the Organisers' requirements: Payment by BVR transfer, payment by credit cards (SIX Payment Worldline), payment by Paypal or Stripe, TWINT, Google Pay, online payment with Postfinance (Switzerland only).
2.2. Fees and commissions
The costs and commissions of the various means of payment shall be borne by the athlete and shall be clearly indicated in the order basket displayed before payment. In the case of refunds, small bank or transaction fees and charges may not be refunded depending on the payment method initially chosen by the participant.
2.3. Refunds and credit notes
There is no refund or change of registration except in case of cancellation of the event. Upon postponement of an event, entries remain valid. In case of cancellation of an event without replacement, Performance Sport will return the entry according to the specific terms and conditions of the Organizer's rules and regulations clearly defined therein. As the seller of the entry, Performance Sport cannot be held liable in the event of nonrefunds or denial of refunds by the Organizer.
Refunds are made by Parformance Sport Switzerland within 30 working days from the date of the cancellation announcement, if the refund is provided by the organizer.
A refund or credit of the purchase price through Performance Sport will only take place in the branch provided by the organizer. The responsibility for the refunded purchase price lies with the organizer. A refund or additional credit to the purchase price of the ticket is not foreseen.
Performance Sport is part of the contract between the Organiser and the participant as delegate for the collection and reimbursement of participation fees. The rules of the event stipulate the conditions that entitle the participant to a refund. For situations not contemplated in the event rules, the Organiser decides whether to accept the request for reimbursement and informs Performance Sport who will execute it through the same channel as the initial payment.
Performance Sport Switzerland is solely responsible for the execution of electronic refunds and credit notes.
2.4. Payment data
Performance Sport does not store any payment data on its website or in its databases. Buyers enter their card information directly into the payment gateway.
Entries are delivered electronically by e-mail immediately. Confirmation e-mails are binding. The date of delivery corresponds to the date of electronic transmission.
