Such participants are not entitled to a refund. The tour operator will charge the client for any additional costs incurred.
Article 8: The client’s liability for damage or loss
1. If no description of the damage to the vehicle has been drawn up by the parties, the client is deemed to have received the vehicles in an undamaged condition. When the vehicle is returned, a description of any damage is drawn up. In case of a difference of opinion regarding the nature and cause of any damage, the opinion of the tour operator will prevail. The compensation for the remedy of such damage is deducted from the deposit, and the client will be sent an invoice if such amount is not sufficient.

3. The vehicle is insured in accordance with the requirements of the Norwegian Insurance , and insurance against fire, theft and damage has also been taken out, with a NOK 4000 excess excluding VAT. If an excess was agreed on in the rental agreement, the
client’s liability for damage or loss will for each incident be limited to the excess amount, unless:
the damage or loss was caused during or as a result of actions or omissions in violation of article 8;
the damage or loss was caused as a result of the use of the vehicle on unmetalled roads, unless the particular type of vehicle is explicitly destined for use on unmetalled roads, or use of the vehicle on roads that the vehicle is apparently
unsuitable for, or of which the client or rider has been informed that entering such roads is at one’s own risk;
the damage or loss was caused with the consent of the client or as a result of the client’s wilful misconduct or gross
it concerns damage or loss due to any harm or injury caused to third parties by or with the vehicle and the
third-party liability insurance that was taken out for the vehicle does not provide cover due to a violation of any
provision of the policy conditions. The policy conditions are available for inspection at the offices of the tour
operator; the damage or loss was caused by the loss of the vehicle, and/or by the accessories and documents
belonging to the vehicle not being handed in to the tour operator in full.
4. If pursuant to an insurance contract taken out by the tour operator, whether or not mandatorily, against the risk of
fire, theft and damage or against the risk of third-party liability, payment is made to the tour operator or a third
party, this will not affect the client’s liability.
5. If the damage or loss is the result of any harm or injury caused with or by the vehicle, the extent of such harm or
injury will be determined in advance on the basis of the amount of any compensation paid to the injured party,
possibly increased by other loss suffered by the tour operator.
6. Loss incurred due to the inability to rent out the vehicle during the period of repair or replacement will be determined in advance on the basis of the number of days involved in the repair or replacement of the vehicle, multiplied by the rental per day, less 10% in connection with the saving on variable expenses.
7. The client is jointly and severally liable for behaviour and omissions on the part of the participants and third
parties, even if these third parties did not have the client’s consent.
Article 9: The tour operator’s liability and defects to the vehicle
1. The client and the participants are aware of the fact that road use always involves risks. They are furthermore aware that the vehicle has an entirely new method of operation that cannot be compared to the operation of any other existing
vehicle and that operation of the vehicle therefore involves an increased risk of falling and (other) traffic accidents. The
client and the participants are furthermore aware that the tour operator is physically unable to constantly intervene in
cases of reckless endangerment or dangerous situations. In view of the above, the client and the participants take part in the Segway tour fully at their own risk.
2. The tour operator is only liable for damage or loss suffered by the client or the participants if such damage or loss is the result of wilful misconduct or gross negligence on the part of the tour operator and/or of defects to the vehicle that the tour operator should have been aware of prior to the Segway tour.
3. The tour operator will never be liable for damage or loss that was caused in part, to whatever extent, by the client's use of the vehicle in violation of article 8 of these conditions.
4. The tour operator will never be liable for consequential damage or loss. Where appropriate, the tour operator’s liability is limited to the amount that is paid out in each loss-causing event by its liability insurer.
5. A failure in the vehicle that is not related to any careless maintenance by the tour operator cannot be regarded as a
defect by the parties.
Article 10: Sanctions and measures imposed by the government
The client must pay for all sanctions and consequences of measures imposed by the government in connection with
the possession and/or use of the vehicle, unless such sanctions and measures are related to a defect that was already
present at the start of the rental. If these sanctions and measures are imposed on the tour operator, the client will be
obliged to indemnify the tour operator on its demand, in which case the client will also owe the costs of collection at
law and otherwise, subject to a minimum of NOK 600 excluding VAT. If the tour operator provides information to the
authorities, in connection with any behaviour or omission on the client's part such as a traffic violation, the client will
be obliged to compensate any costs involved, subject to a minimum of NOK 600 excluding VAT.
Article 11: Processing personal data of the client and the participants
In order to guarantee a good provision of services, the personal data of the client and the participants will be stored,
processed and used by the tour operator. The client also consents to the collected personal data being made available
to the tour operator and/or companies affiliated with the tour operator for storage, processing and use within the
scope of product information, marketing activities and other services so that the offer of products and services of the
tour operator can fully be made use of. The client is entitled to inspect and correct any stored personal data. The
client and/or the participants can object to the tour operator regarding the processing of their data for direct mailing
purposes. Such objection will be honoured. The tour operator can pass on the personal data of the client and/or the
participants to the police within the scope of a criminal investigation.
Article 12: Applicable law
The rental agreement will be governed by Norwegian law at all times. If a matter is submitted to a court other than thesubdistrict court, the competent court in the tour operator's place of business has sole jurisdiction, unless the client, being a consumer, informs in writing within a month of the tour operator's reliance on this article that he or she prefers settlement by the court that has jurisdiction according to the law.
