Conditions for printing and validity of the Access Ticket. 
To be valid, the Access Ticket must be printed in portrait mode (vertical), on a white A4 sheet of paper without changing the print size. The following formats are also possible: cell phone screen, tablet screen. The Access Tickets must have a good print quality. Partially printed, soiled, damaged or illegible Access Tickets will not be accepted and will therefore be considered invalid. In the event of poor printing quality, it is the Customer's responsibility to reprint the Access Ticket. Access Tickets are provided with a unique barcode allowing only one person to enter the Event for one entry (any exit is final). The validity of the Access Tickets is checked at the entrance to the Event using bar code readers. It is forbidden to reproduce, duplicate or counterfeit the Access Ticket in any way. Consequently, the Company may refuse entry when several prints, reproductions, copies or imitations of the same home-printable Access Ticket are in circulation and access to the Event has already been granted beforehand to the holder of a print, reproduction, copy or imitation of the corresponding Access Ticket. In the event of loss, theft or illicit use of the Access Ticket, no duplicate or certificate of any kind whatsoever will be issued to the Client, other than the single Access Ticket printable by the Client. 
Any order placed online is firm and final and irrevocably commits the Customer to full payment of the price. Consequently, no refund will be made for any reason whatsoever, particularly in the event of partial or total cancellation of the order. 
Absence of right of retraction 
In accordance with Article L 221-28 of the French Consumer Code, the right of withdrawal does not apply to trade show passes. 
It is reminded that Access Passes are non-transferable. 
The sale of Access Passes on the sly in the public domain, in a private place or on the Internet is a criminal offense punishable by arrest by the police and a fine of €15,000 (art. 313-6-2 of the French Penal Code). Upon announcement of the cancellation or modification of the date or time of the Event for which the Client has ordered an Access Pass or Passes, the Client agrees that the Company may use the contact information entered by the Client when ordering online to inform the Client of the procedure to follow. In the event of cancellation of the Event by the Company due to a case of force majeure as defined in Article 1218 of the French Civil Code, the Company will notify the Clients without delay.
