In this case, the participant shall have a special right of termination, which he must exercise within 14 days of receipt of the notification by the organizer or, if less than 14 days remain from the notification by the organizer until the start of the event, until the start of the event. If the participant does not exercise the special right of termination in text form (e.g. e-mail, letter, fax) in due time, the contractual relationship shall continue to exist with the changed conditions. If the participant has already paid his participation fee, the organizer shall refund any difference to the adjusted participation fee.
