This is to the judgment of the Orga-Team only.
The Participant confirms that all statements made in the registration form are correct. Additional costs that might occur by providing false information in the registration are the responsibility of the Participant.
The Participant attends LEPF 2022 at his/her own risk and responsibility. The Orga-Team, the hotel, hotel staff and the volunteers can under no circumstances be held liable for any damage caused by the Participant nor for theft and/or damage of belongings, or other damages.
