The General Contractual Terms and Conditions (henceforth “Terms”) apply to the use of the www.edenpont.com website (henceforth “Web Site”) operated by the Provider and to the services provided by the Provider (henceforth “Services”). The Provider is not a programme- or tour agency, the Site it operates is an international online marketplace, where visitors can choose among the Programmes published by the Hosts, and participate in them after applying.
The users expressly acknowledge that the organization of the Programmes and their participation in them is not part of this Service.
Anyone who uses the website – whether a browser, a User, Visitor, or Host – must agree to the full Terms. If a user does not agree with the Terms or any part of the Terms, they may not make use of the Service.
The original language of the Terms is Hungarian.

Definitions and Explanations
“Programme” means a garden tour, garden event, or green tour based on a Host’s initiative, approved by the Provider, and listed on the website. All the details of the Programmes furnished by the Host to the Provider can be seen on the Programme’s data sheet on the Web Site, including the date and time of the Programmes, their fees, any discounts that may be used, etc.
“Location” is the location of the Program, primarily but not exclusively the Host’s garden, or a public area. The details of the Location can be found on the Location data sheet, including its description, creation, main features, and the city or location where it can be found, with exception of the exact street and house number, which the Provider will only make available to Visitors who have a valid (approved) application.
A condition for listing the Programme and Location on the Web Site is a valid Agreement between the Host and the Provider (henceforth “Parties”).
“User” means a person who visits the Site. The Site is freely accessible to all Users, browsing does not require registration.
“Visitor” means a User who uses the Website and the Service and reserves a place in a Programme, regardless of whether they participate in the Programme.
“Host” means the User who, using the Web Site and the Service, usually, but not necessarily, has the idea of the Programme, initiates putting it on the Site, and holds the Programme. The Host is a natural person, often an enthusiastic gardener, whose school qualifications might be different from horticulture. The information the Host provides might differ from other professional opinions.
“Participation Fee” is the fee paid to the Host by the Visitor in exchange for participation in the Programme as specified in the Payment Terms. Visitor will only be able to participate in the programme by paying the Participation Fee, however, paying the Participation Fee does not assure automatic participation. The Participation Fee is always shown in Euros on the Programme Data Sheet, except in Hungary, where the Participation Fee is listed in Hungarian Forints, along with the taxes – primarily but not only VAT -- and all other handling and transaction fees. The Participation Fee is collected from the Visitor by the Provider, and paid to the Host after the programme has been held. The Participation Fee is by no means the same as the Service fee. The Participation Fee does not include travel expenses for the Programme!
“Service fee” is the fee which only the Host pays to the Provider for the use of the service.
“Edenpont Club” is the loyalty program run by the Provider for registered Visitors, wherein the users of the loyalty program can use pre-paid balances to receive a loyalty program bonus from the Provider.
