• offering tickets to auction portals for sale;
• selling tickets for commercial purposes without the express prior written consent of the EHF;

• transferring tickets to people who have been excluded from attending handball games for security reasons; and
• transfer or use of tickets without the express prior written consent of the EHF for purposes of advertising, marketing, as a bonus, giveaway, prize or as part of an unauthorized hospitality or travel package.
At the request of the EHF, if the ticket is transferred, the Customer shall provide the EHF with the name, address and date of birth of the new ticket owner.
If a ticket is used for the aforementioned inadmissible purposes or if the Ticket Holder violates these T&Cs in any other way, the ticket shall become invalid. In this case, the EHF is entitled to block the ticket - also electronically - and to deny the Ticket Holder to access the arena without compensation or to expel him/her from the arena.
