We act as a commercial agent for the Suppliers and are commissioned and authorized by the Suppliers to conclude transactions directly between Suppliers and Users, e.g., you, and for the account of the Suppliers and to collect payments from the Users.

3.2 You can filter the list of Activities by different parameters. The discovery wizard will show you Activities that match your criteria and are offered by a specific Supplier.

Offers that are part of trust or loyalty programs are excluded from best price matching.
6.3 To make use of this best price matching offer, you must send us the link (and/or a screenshot of the alternative offer) upon request. We will then check this, and should the price actually be lower, pay the difference, whereby this payment can also be made by means of a voucher.
6.4 All special offers and discount promotions are marked as such.
7. Payment at The Activists
7.1 The price offered on The Activists Platform (“Posted Price”) shall apply to the Activity. The amount you pay for an Activity (“Booking Price”) is the Posted Price less any applicable discount. Unless otherwise agreed, the Booking Price for the Activity is payable immediately upon booking.
7.2 For selected Activities, you may be able to choose the “Reserve now, pay later” feature. This is only possible with a credit card that is valid at least until the date of the selected Activity; to confirm this, we will charge 0 EUR to your credit card when you complete your booking. 72 hours before the start of the Activity we will debit the Booking Price. If the credit card charge fails, you have 47 hours to make the payment manually. If this fails and the payment is not made, we will automatically cancel the Activity you booked.
7.3 The Activists is entitled to receive the invoiced amounts in the name of and on behalf of the Supplier (as a commercial agent), unless otherwise expressly stated in the Supplier’s invoice. With the successful payment to The Activists, you have fulfilled your payment obligations towards the Supplier with a discharging effect. If claims are to be paid in a currency other than your local currency (foreign currency claim), The Activists may (in its role as a commercial agent) collect payment in your local currency and convert the foreign currency claim at the current exchange rate at the time of the conclusion of the contract. For highly volatile currencies, we may charge a reasonable exchange fee.

A cancellation or changes can be made via the form available at About us ⎸The Activists. The change or cancellation must be made in good time; what is “in good time” depends on each individual case (e.g., within the applicable cancellation period) and may be subject to the Activity’s availability. Therefore, it is very important that you carefully read all terms and conditions on the Activity page or the Supplier T&Cs. The decisive factor for a timely cancellation is the timely receipt of the notification by The Activists. If these conditions are met, we will issue a cancellation/change confirmation on behalf of the Supplier. This will serve as proof of the cancellation/change and therefore must be kept.
8.3 We can notify you of changes or cancellations on behalf of the Supplier, especially if at short notice, by your provided telephone number and by sending changes to your email address.
9. Reviews and Other User Content
9.1 We offer you the opportunity to view reviews and other content posted by other users on The Activists Platform. The reviews reflect the opinion of a respective user from a specific point in time and are therefore shaped by personal ideas and expectations. It must also be noted that the Activity may have changed since the review or other content was posted. The number of reviews and ratings given should also be taken into account, as a single opinion is often less meaningful than the synopsis of a large number of opinions.
9.2 You can personally influence the content of The Activists Platform by writing reviews of Activities which you have purchased or posting pictures (together, “User Content”). You are fully responsible for the User Content you post. It is strictly forbidden to post User Content on The Activists Platform that: (i) is untrue or misleading; (ii) openly or covertly advertises products, services or companies; (iii) is created in return for remuneration from a third party; (iv) is created by or at the direction of the Supplier who provides the Activity; (v) violates the intellectual property, privacy, or other rights of a third party; or (vi) contains links or similar information/references that are likely to impair the functioning of third-party data processing systems.

9.5 You retain ownership of any User Content you create. You grant to The Activist a non-exclusive, sublicensable (through one or more tiers), worldwide, fully-paid and royalty-free license, in any and all media now known or hereafter discovered or developed, to use, reproduce, adapt, translate, make derivative works of, modify, perform, publicly display, publicly perform, transmit, and distribute the User Content including (i) on or through The Activists Platform, (ii) on or through The Activists’ partners, and (iii) in online and offline marketing materials.

9.7 The Activist, its affiliates, sub-agents and their (distribution) partners, may display advertisements and other information next to or together with the User Content on The Activists Platform as well as on other media.
