Relationship between the European Juggling Association (EJA) and the European Juggling Convention (EJC)

The EJA is an international body run entirely by volunteers to promote juggling across Europe, predominantly by supporting EJC organisers to organise their event. The EJA and EJC organisers are two independent organisations partnering for the benefit of a successful event. 

All tickets and other items in relation to the EJC 2023 are ultimately issued by the organisers of EJC 2023, even if you have been in contact with the members of the EJA.

The present Terms and Conditions outline those specific to the EJC 2023.

  1. All tickets are uniquely identified and transferable at the discretion of the ticket holder and EJC 2023.
  2. You will need to present valid identification matching the name on your ticket before entering the convention.
  3. If you want to transfer your ticket to another person, please see F) Transfer of tickets. Do not attempt to transfer a ticket without involvement of prereg.ejc.ireland@outlook.com as this might leave parties involved open to fraud.
  4. Unless explicitly otherwise stated, all purchases through this system will be facilitated by a digital ticket. This ticket will be sent out as soon as possible after payment has been received.
  5. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, all goods and services purchased will need to be collected at the EJC in Gormanston – Co. Meath, Ireland between 29th July to 6th August 2023 by showing the QR code provided on their ticket.
  6. You will need to state a valid email address in order to receive your ticket(s). Each ticket provides a unique QR code and can only be used once. You agree to keep your QR codes safe to avoid fraudulent activity.  
  7. The EJC 2023 reserves the right to accept or reject your order for any reason at any time. It will not do so unreasonably. If the order is rejected but money was paid, you shall be refunded.

  10. Duplicate tickets may be reissued upon request from the original purchase email address, following additional levels of security clearance.
  11. If you have obtained a ticket in breach of these terms and/or if you breach any of these terms then it shall be void, and all rights conferred on you or evidenced by such ticket shall be void.

Void tickets are non-refundable

D) Material changes to the event by us

  1. If the event is rescheduled or materially changed and you want a refund, you must claim your refund in good time before the rescheduled or materially changed event takes place. 
  2. If an event is cancelled, we will endeavour to refund every person eligible for a refund in line with these Terms and Conditions. In case there is a technical issue (for example, if your payment details have changed) and we cannot contact you (for example, if your email address is not working), you must claim your refund within 3 months from the date of the event. Any tickets remaining unclaimed after this time will be considered generous donations to the EJC 2023 funds (and will thus benefit future EJCs).

E) Refunds

  1. All orders cancelled within 14 days after initial purchase (meaning, the date of money being first received) will be refunded in full excluding any fees. The refund value is the total value of the purchase minus incurred fees (meaning booking fees, etc.), capped at €10.
  2. No refunds will be issued after 14 days. This money will go towards cost incurred, and any surplus will go towards infrastructure supporting future EJCs. If you want to minimise fees, consider transferring your ticket to someone else (see F) Transfer of tickets).

  3. We will not transfer any tickets after the end of 30 June 2023. All transfers require manual administration from the EJC organisers, and are therefore subject to an admin fee. For a ticket transfer, there is an administration fee of 5 Euro.
