Terms & Conditions – Adventures


To ensure a small group size, we only sell a limited amount of tickets. You can only attend the adventure if you have purchased a ticket beforehand. Tickets to TEDxTUM are non-refundable. If you find that you cannot attend the event, you can transfer your ticket to another name up to 24 hours before the event by sending an email to tickets@tedxtum.com with your ticket number and the name to transfer the ticket to.

If the event has to be cancelled due to changed regulations, we will offer all our attendees a full refund.

By filling out a ticket order, you provide us with data which we will treat confidentially at any given time and not pass on to third parties outside of TED and TEDxTUM. However, we reserve the right to publish statistical breakdowns of our audience characteristics in a form which is not traceable to concrete persons. Moreover, with your purchase, you agree to be added to the TEDxTUM mailing list to send you important information about the event. We will also send you information regarding next events or general information about TEDxTUM afterwards. If you don’t want to get this information, you can always unsubscribe from the newsletter or let us know in advance by sending an email to data@tedxtum.com.

With buying a ticket for TEDxTUM and attending the event, you also agree that we can pass on your email address to TED. TED will only use your address to send you one email to get your feedback about our event. For us, it is important for our next licence that TED gets this feedback, but even more, this feedback is important for us to be able to improve our event in the next year. We hope you will participate in this survey and help us to keep improving TEDxTUM. However, if you don’t want your email address passed on to TED, you can decline this by sending an email to data@tedxtum.com.

In-person events

Please be aware that we are not selling tickets on the event day. If you want to attend TEDxTUM, please purchase a ticket beforehand.

Through the purchase of a ticket, you consent to appear in photos and/or video material recorded at the venue during the event’s duration. These photos and/or videos will then be shared on various on- and offline channels. If you have inquiries as to how this material will be used, please contact us.

If you feel sick, have been tested positive for COVID-19, are awaiting a test result, or have been in contact with a person tested positive for COVID-19, you are not allowed to attend our event. In this case, please contact us by sending an email to tickets@tedxtum.com. You will get a full refund of your ticket. Since demand for tickets is much higher than what we can offer, we would kindly ask you to let us know if you cannot attend the event as soon as possible to allow us to re-sell the ticket.

If you want to transfer your ticket to someone else, please send us an email to tickets@tedxtum.com up to 12 hours before the event with your ticket number and the name to transfer the ticket to. This is particularly important to allow contact tracing of people who attended the event as a measure to slow down spreading of COVID-19.

Please wear a FFP2 face mask covering mouth and nose at all times while attending the adventure unless otherwise communicated by the TEDxTUM team members. Distances of 1.5m have to be kept between people except for people from the same households or people allowed to have contact following the current contact regulations.

If you are attending an adventure with someone from your household or a person you are allowed to have contact with following the current regulations, but you bought your tickets separately, send us an email to tickets@tedxtum.com up to 24 hours before the event so we can ensure to assign you to the same group in the case of group activities.

Material used will either be available for each attendee or will be cleaned between uses.

Our team members are working hard to create a nice and interesting adventure while still having the safety of all attendees in mind. Please follow any instructions by the TEDxTUM team members on the event day to ensure a safe experience for everyone. 

We will exercise “Hausrecht” against anyone violating these rules. In this case, no refund will be issued.

These rules are subject to change based on the current regulations.

Online events

Please be aware you can only participate in an online event if you have purchased a ticket beforehand. As ticket holder, you will receive details to attend the online event shortly before the event. You are not allowed to pass these details to someone without a ticket.

It is possible that we will take screenshots or recordings during the online event. If you don’t want to appear in any photos or videos, you can switch off your camera at all times.

If the ticket includes a gift box sent via mail to ticket holders, boxes will only be shipped to addresses located in Germany.
