Despite the greatest care in the creation of article descriptions and product presentations, we unfortunately cannot guarantee that these descriptions and images are correct, complete and without error. Particularly with regard to the colour accuracy of product displays, there may be technically caused differences between the screen display and the actual product.
The information about events contained on MERCHGROUND.de is provided by the respective event organizers without the possibility of checking this information. MERCHGROUND can therefore not guarantee the correctness of the information provided. Current event data can be taken from the official internet offers of the organizer or artist, or other generally accessible sources.


As far as MERCHGROUND offers services from the field of events on behalf of an organizer, especially tickets for events, there is no distance selling contract according to § 312g para. 2 No. 9 BGB. A right of withdrawal is excluded for orders of such services. Each order of tickets placed obliges the customer to accept and pay for the tickets ordered.

We reserve the right to determine the shipping route in the event of a return.
The right of withdrawal does not apply to used goods. This applies in particular to worn or washed textiles and unsealed sound carriers.


In case of injury to life, body or health, which is based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by MERCHGROUND or an intentional or negligent breach of duty by one of its legal representatives or vicarious agents, MERCHGROUND is liable according to the statutory provisions.
For other damages the following applies:
I.) For damages, which are based on the breach of essential contractual obligations due to simple negligence of MERCHGROUND, its legal representatives or vicarious agents, the liability of MERCHGROUND is limited to the foreseeable damage typical for the contract up to a maximum of the value of the delivery item.
II.) Claims for damages against MERCHGROUND for other damages resulting from the breach of secondary obligations or non-essential obligations are excluded in case of simple negligence.

The above exclusions or limitations of liability do not apply if FOXGROUND GbR has fraudulently concealed a defect or has assumed a written guarantee for a specific quality. The provisions of the Product Liability Act remain unaffected.


FOXGROUND GbR is only the agent for the tickets to the above mentioned event and not the organiser. The issuing of the tickets and implementation of the event is carried out by the organiser. More detailed information is available at the box office of the venue or on the websites of the respective organisers. With regard to the booked event itself, a contract is concluded exclusively between the purchaser and the respective organizer. For this purpose, the General Terms and Conditions of the respective organizer, which are in addition to the General Terms and Conditions of MERCHGROUND, apply additionally. Who the respective organizer is will be indicated during the ordering process.
MERCHGROUND therefore especially does not bear the risk of insolvency or insolvency of the respective Organiser. MERCHGROUND does neither determine the ticket prices nor the allocation of the price categories and does not determine where which seats or standing places are available. MERCHGROUND as an agent is also in this respect dependent on the information provided by the respective Organiser and cannot assume any guarantee for its correctness, especially with regard to the availability of seats or standing room.
If the event is rescheduled or cancelled, any claims of the ticket buyers have to be made directly to the respective organizer. There is no claim for the ticket to be taken back by FOXGROUND GbR.
The organiser is exclusively liable for all claims of the end customer in relation to the event.
No part of this website may be used for commercial purposes without the prior written consent of MERCHGROUND. In particular the commercial resale of tickets is prohibited. The purchaser also assures that he will not use his purchased ticket for advertising, marketing or other commercial purposes (including prize competitions and other competitions) or sell it in front of the entrance or entrance area of the event location. MERCHGROUND reserves the right to block the access to this website or not to accept the ticket order if there is a reasonable suspicion that the orderer cooperates with another ticket broker or black market trader or has used automated programs to order tickets or has ordered tickets beyond the maximum number of tickets per person allowed by MERCHGROUND.


By sending your order you confirm the correctness of your personal data entered during the purchase process. In case of wrong information we reserve the right to pass on additional costs (e.g. additional shipping costs) to you. In the case of deliberately false information, we expressly reserve the right to take legal action against the originator of such an order.
We store your personal data for a fast and error-free EDP processing and payment handling by our contractual partners. This personal data includes the entries you have made, your order and the IP address of your computer. A transfer to third parties for purposes other than those mentioned above will only take place with your consent and only for the purpose for which you have agreed to the transfer of data. You can revoke this consent at any time.


All differences of opinion and legal disputes arising in connection with the business relationship shall be governed exclusively by German law, excluding the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. In the event that you do not have a domicile or usual place of residence in Germany when the action is filed, or this is not known to us and/or you are a merchant in the sense of the German Commercial Code (HGB), Braunschweig is agreed as the place of jurisdiction.
If individual provisions of these General Terms and Conditions of Delivery and Sale and/or the contract supplemented by them are or become invalid, the validity of the other provisions shall not be affected thereby and the contract and these General Terms and Conditions of Delivery and Sale shall otherwise remain valid for both parties.

The winner will be notified by telephone or e-mail after the end of the competition/competition. If the winner cannot be contacted and does not respond within 48 hours of being contacted, the prize will be forfeited and a new winner will be selected.
In case of an undeliverable prize notification, MERCHGROUND is not obliged to make further investigations.


11.1 Profits in kind

The material prizes will be sent to MERCHGROUND or a third party commissioned by MERCHGROUND by forwarding agency, parcel service or post to the postal address to be provided by the winner.

Tickets will be sent to the winners by mail to the given residential address or by e-ticket to the given e-mail address. By using the ticket, the winner accepts the conditions of the respective ticket provider/concert organiser on which the ticket is based.

11.4. Miscellaneous
Raffles/competitions can be carried out by MERCHGROUND in cooperation with different partners (cooperation partners), who may provide the prizes (prize sponsor). MERCHGROUND represents the cooperation partners during the execution of the lottery/prize competition and promises the prizes donated by them solely in their name. MERCHGROUND is not obligated to provide its own service, unless MERCHGROUND is in the concrete case itself sponsor of the prize.

The collected, personal data will be used by us for the purpose of carrying out the competition/prize. In this context MERCHGROUND is entitled to transfer the winner’s data to cooperation partners in order to enable the delivery of the prize.

We shall be fully liable in cases of intent and gross negligence as well as for damages resulting from injury to life, body or health.

a) In the case of slight negligence, we shall only be liable for breaches of an essential contractual obligation (cardinal obligation).

c) The liability according to the above mentioned letters a) and b) is limited to typical, foreseeable damages.

Profit claims are not transferable. Cash payment is not possible.
Participation in the lottery/competition cannot be made by letter or postcard to MERCHGROUND GbR and associated cooperation partners.
We reserve the right to exclude participants from the competition/competition for good cause and to reclaim prizes, in particular if there is a justified suspicion or proof of false information, manipulation, violation of these conditions of participation or other unauthorised actions.
