The validity of these Terms and Conditions (GTC) is recognized by using the Jungfrau Railways Management Ltd. (JBM) website. In addition, the General Terms and Conditions (GTC) apply to orders in the shopping cart contained on the website. The individual pages of the JBM website are identified by the endorsement © Jungfraubahnen Management AG – GCU/GTC.
Those who open a user account on the jungfrau.ch website agree with the related provisions and agree to the electronic storage and processing of data they have generated or entered.
The Jungfrau Railways website is not intended for persons who are subject to a law that prohibits the use of such website. Access is not permitted for persons for whom this is true.
JBM makes every effort to publish factual and correct content on its website. However, no guarantee can be given regarding the accuracy and completeness of the information and the balance of opinions contained therein. This applies in particular to guarantees of the qualities of specified places, facilities and services described. It must be especially noted that such qualities may change over time or can alter, in particular through seasonal and metrological influences.
Changes in the content of the website, the links, user guidance and graphics may be made by JBM at any time without prior notice.
Unless explicitly stated, or is clearly evident, the information on the website does not constitute an offer of sale. The website does not include any demands for the completion of any kind of transaction. Travel descriptions and the portrayal of nature and facilities serve solely as information. In particular, descriptions of hotels and transport facilities and the information contained therein on distances and views, buildings in the vicinity and such like are by nature liable to change and are subjective. The information does not constitute a guarantee of certain features but serves solely to provide a general impression. Further research is recommended, for example by consulting other sources as part of comprehensive travel planning.
By using a link, it is possible that the user will exit the JBM website. JBM does not examine the content of linked third-party websites and accepts no liability whatsoever for the contents thereof and the offers, information and opinions contained therein.
JBM gives no guarantee that the site will be continuously accessible, that the functions will be uninterrupted or error-free. Under special circumstances, it even reserves the right to eliminate the Service or any part thereof. It endeavours to resolve interruptions quickly. JBM explicitly draws attention to the diverse and notorious latent risks inherent in the Internet. No guarantee can be given that the JBM website or server is free of viruses or any other damaging elements.
The necessary data for the settlement of transactions in the shopping cart such as user name, password, first and last names, addresses, ski pass number, gender, class level, holiday dates, etc. are saved in the jungfrau.ch user account. Emails are sent to the email address provided in the user account for processing transactions and for system-relevant procedures. The delivery of at least one regularly published newsletter is enabled by default. The newsletter can be disabled in the user account.
The beneficiary of the user account is responsible for the proper maintenance and updating of the data. To the extent he/she provides information to third parties, they provide the authorisation necessary for this themselves. In his/her own best interest, the beneficiary is required to keep the access password confidential. If misuse of the account is suspected, then JBM should be contacted immediately. No credit card information is processed in JBM systems; this takes place solely via the specialized service provider linked in the checkout.
The deletion of a user account may be requested in the account ("My User Account"). A deletion is not possible as long as valid (not expired) purchase authorisations are made in the account. In this case, an error message occurs. The account is no longer accessible after a deletion, it may not be reactivated and all services such as newsletters, ad hoc notifications, etc. associated with the account will be discontinued. The account will remain stored internally and accessible to administrators until the end of the duration of the commercial storage requirements for business records, after which it is permanently deleted.
One may opt for the additional Jungfrau Winnercard services in the user account. If this is implemented, participation in the Skiline system is thereby agreed (Terms and Conditions and System Description). Additional personal data (particularly information from control systems in the ski lift system) and video recordings that were recorded on special racetracks or in fun parks are stored and processed electronically. JBM uses the Skiline Media AG, Seedammstrasse 3, 8808 Pfäffikon, Switzerland for these services. JBM provides data from the user account to this company, so that an additional account is created on the Skiline Internet portal (skiline.cc). The Jungfrau Winnercard service is a result of the functions configured for the Jungfrau Ski Region by Skiline. This service is personalised, controlled and accessed via jungfrau.ch (by entering the sport pass number, for example). The degree to which information is public (private or public profile, posts, username, ski movies) is determined in the user profile. With the activation of the Jungfrau Winnercard service, competitions, the awarding of prizes or honours will be connected. No correspondence will be conducted regarding such contests; a personal claim to any service does not exist. Recourse to the courts is excluded. The following groups are excluded from participation in the competition:
- JE3 members, JSR pensioner members
- JE2 employees and JSR pensioners
- JS5 JSR ski instructors
- JS3 JO Skiclub co-leaders
- JS2 Ski instructors with JSR certificate
- JE0 free season pass
The Skiline account is not deleted with the deactivation of Jungfrau WinnerCard or the deletion of the user account on jungfrau.ch. It can be used for a different ski area, for example. Participation in Skiline may be terminated at any time via corresponding input on the Internet at www.skiline.cc or via email to email@example.com.
