1. Commercial basis: with the purchase of the HarzCard you get no concluded agreements with a service provider shown in the HarzCard guide. The companies in the illustrated HarzCard guide offer their services. The HarzCard holder makes the respective contract directly with the service provider/company before or by the use of the service shown. The Harz AG is not a tour operator, but merely provides the HarzCard holder with information about the HarzCard offers. The service providers offer the HarzCard holder the use of the services listed in the current HarzCard guide to the specified conditions during the time the HarzCard is valid.
2. Service: the service providers have committed themselves to provide HarzCard holders the stated offers as well as services during season and usual business hours unrestricted and fully available.

The services of the HarzCard are listed in the HarzCard guide and may vary depending on the card type. Services may be subject to availability. Claims from the HarzCard holder for not available services by the individual service providers can’t be derived from the Harz AG. For the services of the service providers, the Harz AG assumes no liability. The exchange and return of tickets is excluded.
