3. Conditions of purchase and subject matter of the contract
3.1 The contract is concluded between the buyer and the seller and comes into effect upon successful payment of the voucher. By purchasing the voucher, the buyer accepts these General Terms and Conditions.
4. Order and payment
4.1 The order is made telematically on the website and paid for by credit card. The buyer guarantees that the data provided when ordering the voucher is correct and complete: It is strictly forbidden for the buyer to provide false and/or invented and/or fictitious and/or third-party data when completing the order.
4.2 The paid voucher is sent to the buyer in digital form by e-mail (postal delivery is not possible) to the address provided by the buyer in the “buyer information” section of the ordering process and can be printed out immediately.
4.3 The voucher features a unique QR code and/or number code that can only be used once and is required for redeeming the voucher. The buyer and/or recipient is expressly warned and declares to be aware of the unique voucher code that allows anyone to redeem the voucher on the www.bookingsuedtirol.com website: This QR code and/or number code must therefore be carefully stored by the buyer or recipient of the voucher.
4.4 The buyer and/or recipient is responsible for storing or using the original voucher. No liability is accepted for any misuse of the voucher. The seller is not liable for any loss, theft, damage, destruction or misuse of the voucher: The voucher cannot be cancelled and/or replaced and the amount cannot be refunded, not even by issuing a new voucher. Vouchers obtained fraudulently or illegally are considered void, ineffective, and unsuitable for the purchase of the services offered on the website, whereby the seller reserves the right to claim damages.
5. Prices and products
5.1 The purchased and ordered voucher cannot be redeemed in cash in full or in part, does not entitle to cash disbursements, and cannot be used to purchase other vouchers.
5.2 The voucher can be redeemed in full or part (if the voucher value is higher than the booking value). The voucher is only valid if the amount owed has been paid in full and the payment has been successful. The voucher is valid for 2 years from the date of issue. After the expiry date, the voucher can no longer be used or redeemed, even if it has not been redeemed at all or just in part.
6. Use of the voucher
6.1 Once the purchase has been completed, the voucher is sent telematically to the buyer, who can use it themselves or gift it to another recipient. The recipient is also authorised to pass the voucher on to another natural person (holder). The buyer is responsible for informing the recipient of the Terms and Conditions in question, which are published on the website and can be accessed there.
6.2 The voucher is a bearer instrument, is not issued in a specific person’s name, cannot be recharged, and is intended exclusively for the personal use of the respective holder.
6.3 The holder of the voucher is the person who is the first to use it, even if just partially (see sections 4.3 and 5.2).
6.4 In accordance with section 4.3 of these Terms and Conditions, the buyer and recipient are expressly informed that the voucher features a QR code or number code and can be redeemed in full or in part. The knowledge and use of such a unique barcode makes it possible to redeem the voucher in full, after which it can then no longer be used.
6.5 The seller, Yanovis srl, as well as the suppliers cannot be held liable if the person redeeming the voucher, which is non-personalised, is not the buyer or recipient (see sections 4.3, 4.4, 6.2, 6.3).
6.6 Neither the seller nor the operator of the website is responsible for any disagreements or possible disputes between the buyer and the recipient or holder.
6.7 The owner and operator of the www.bookingsuedtirol.com website is responsible for any customer service required by the buyer of the voucher.

7.1 Only the buyer, and not the recipient or holder, may exercise the right of cancellation within 14 days from the date of issue of the voucher by written notice to the seller, without giving reasons and without penalty, in accordance with art. 52 of the Italian Consumer Code. Any cancellation will result in a refund of the voucher already paid for within 30 days. The right of cancellation can no longer be exercised if the voucher has been redeemed in full or in part within the 14-day period from the date of issue of the voucher (see section 5.2).
8.1 The buyer declares to be responsible for the communication of their personal data and for the possible indication of the name of the recipient during the telematic ordering process.
