1.2.With the purchase of the Klimaticket Ö Armed Forces/Civil Service/Voluntary Service (hereinafter referred to as "Ticket"), no contract of carriage is concluded between the Federal Government and the holder of the Ticket.

Any objections to these amendments must be made in writing by letter or via the contact form at www.klimaticket.at/konktakt by the stated effective date of the General Terms & Conditions, else these amendments are deemed to be accepted. The notice of amendment states the date when the amendments to the General Terms & Conditions will come into effect and provisions that these changes shall automatically come into effect if there are no objections raised by this date. In the event of an objection, the contract can be terminated with immediate effect free of charge. In this case, the Ticket must be handed in at a service centre and the return confirmed by receipt.

8.1.The issue of the Ticket is carried out by One Mobility Ticketing GmbH acting on behalf of and for the account of the Federal Government.
8.2.When issuing the Ticket from a service centre, the transport companies and associations authorized to distribute the ticket only act as intermediaries for the issue of the ticket. However, the ticket is issued by One Mobility Ticketing GmbH acting on behalf of and on account of the Federal Government.
8.3.The company which issues the Ticket is not necessarily also the respective carrier. The Federal Government, One Mobility GmbH and One Mobility Ticketing GmbH are under no obligation to the holder of the ticket to provision, carry out or manage any transport services. The provision, implementation and management of transport services is therefore exclusively the responsibility of the respective transport company that offers the specific transport service in its sole authority and liability. The contract of carriage is concluded exclusively between the holder of the Ticket and the respective transport company and no agreement is entered into by the Federal Government, One Mobility GmbH or One Ticketing GmbH.
9.1.In any case, the following information must be provided when obtaining the Ticket from a service centre:
9.2.In addition to this information, the authorization document valid for the respective customer group must also be presented when the ticket is issued
9.3.The personal information must be checked for accuracy by the customer before issuance is concluded.
9.4.The contract for the receipt of the Ticket is legally valid between the holder of the Ticket and the Federal Government as soon as the ticket issue is accepted by the service centre through the direct technical recording of all contract data (direct contract conclusion on site). The prerequisite is the fulfilment of all the conditions mentioned in point 9..
9.5.Upon successful issuance of the Ticket, a confirmation will be sent to the e-mail address provided. This confirmation is not a ticket.
10.1.After a valid conclusion of the contract, the Ticket is issued in credit card format under the name provided to the service centre and, as a rule, is delivered to the specified address within four weeks after issuance. The Ticket is non-transferable and only valid together with an official photo ID (or e-card with photo).
10.2.The Federal Government bears the risk of loss by post or damage to the Ticket until delivery to the addressee.
10.3.If the possibility displaying the ticket digitally is used, the ticket can also be displayed digitally in the partners' apps in accordance with klimaticket.at. The digitally displayed Ticket is non-transferable and only valid together with an official photo ID (or e-card with photo). If the ticket is blocked or canceled, digital display of the ticket is no longer possible. Data transmission via the mobile network to the smartphone is beyond our control, which is why this is at the risk of the ticket holder. Errors during device operation (e.g. empty batteries, etc.) are the responsibility of the ticket holder.
11.1.Upon completion of the issuance at a service centre, a temporary provisional Ticket will be issued under the name provided to the service centre and handed out as a printout at the service centre and sent to the e-mail address provided to the service centre, if such has been provided. The provisional Ticket is non-transferable and only valid together with an official photo ID (or e-card with photo).
11.2.The provisional Ticket allows the services of the transport companies and participating associations to be used from the start of validity of the Ticket.
11.3.When traveling within Austria, the provisional Ticket can be presented electronically as a PDF ticket on a mobile terminal. In order to prevent counterfeiting and abuse, the inspection staff of transport companies abroad do not accept unprinted PDF tickets on laptops, smartphones or tablets. For trips abroad, the PDF Ticket must therefore always be printed out in advance.
11.4.If the provisional Ticket is printed as a PDF, ensure that it is printed on white paper in A4 portrait format. The code and the data provided must be completely readable. A different format or poorly printed or cut out provisional Ticket can cause the code to become unreadable, in which case the Ticket cannot be validated and is therefore not valid.
11.5.Make sure that the printed bar code is not folded. It stores data that is retrieved during a ticket inspection.
12.1.In the event of loss or theft of the Ticket in credit card format, notification must be made to the competent authority and the loss reported immediately in person to a service centre, by telephone on 0800 24 00 50 or by using the contact form at www.klimaticket.at/kontakt. The Ticket is blocked as soon as the notification has been processed. As soon as the notification is made, the holder of the Ticket is released from the risk of abuse. A provisional Ticket is issued at the service centres and a replacement Ticket are ordered against payment of the replacement service fee (see Appendix 3).
In the event of loss of the Ticket by post, the holder of the Ticket will receive a replacement Ticket free of charge, provided that the holder of the Ticket has reported the loss within six weeks of issue in person to a service centre, by telephone under 0800 24 00 50 or by using the contact form at www.klimaticket.at/kontakt. A provisional Ticket will be issued free of charge for use until the replacement Ticket is delivered. If the loss of the ticket is reported only after the expiry of the six-week period, the replacement fee (see Appendix 3) must be paid for the issue of a replacement Ticket.
13.1.If a passenger presents an invalid Ticket during a ticket inspection, this ticket will be collected by the inspection personnel against confirmation of receipt.
13.2.The Ticket is invalid if
13.3.The Ticket is also invalid, but will not be collected at a ticket inspection, if

14.3.If the return of the Ticket in the form of a check card to the designated places is not confirmed within one week, a letter is sent to the holder of the Ticket, with which a grace period for the return is set, otherwise a payment fee (see Appendix 3) for the use of the Ticket until the end of validity, which is printed on the ticket, becomes due.
16.1.Two months before the expiry of the validity period, the holder of the Ticket will be sent a written invitation by letter or e-mail for renewal of the contract, which contains an offer for a Klimaticket Ö Classic/Youth/Senior/Special. If the total amount for the new ticket is paid within the period of payment specified in the invitation letter for the renewal of the contract, the contract for the new ticket is automatically concluded for a period of twelve months. If payment is not made in time, no new contract will be concluded.
16.2.The new contract begins on the day after the expiry date of the previous Ticket.

In the event of a lack of information about changes in the customer data, all documents and declarations sent to the last address/e-mail address given shall be deemed to have been received in accordance with the rules.
19.1.All participating transport companies and associations accept the Ticket, irrespective of the place of issue, as proof of entitlement to the transport services provided by the transport company and used by the passenger. The issuing agency being a transport company or association or One Mobility Ticketing GmbH or the Federal Government does not therefore provide the transport service in connection with the Ticket, rather the transport service can be provided exclusively by the respective transport company. The transport service is provided, carried out and managed exclusively by the respective transport companies and the transport contract is concluded exclusively between the holder of the Ticket and the respective transport company. The respective transport company, whose transport service is used by the holder of the Ticket, is solely and exclusively liable for all consequences or damages resulting from or related to the transport service. Any liability of the Federal Government, One Mobility GmbH or One Mobility Ticketing GmbH toward holders of the Ticket in connection with the transport service or the resulting consequences or damages is explicitly excluded.
19.2.The holder of the Ticket is liable for damages which are caused by incorrect information provided during the issuance of a Ticket.
19.3.If incorrect information is intentionally provided during the issuance of a Ticket, or if it is misused, the holder of the Ticket can be permanently excluded from the use of the Ticket. In addition, criminal charges can be pressed in these cases.
19.4.The Federal Government reserves the right to exclude the holder of the ticket from the use of the ticket and/or to file a criminal complaint in the event of counterfeiting and misuse, for example when the ticket is passed on to third parties. In addition, inspections may lead to complaints in accordance with the conditions of carriage of transport association companies and transport companies.
19.5.The uninterrupted availability of the website www.klimaticket.at cannot be guaranteed. In this respect, there is a dependence on technical requirements for internet services and telecommunications.

19.6.The Federal Government, One Mobility GmbH and One Mobility Ticketing GmbH accept no liability for the completeness, lack of contradiction, accuracy and current validity of information provided by third parties.
20.1.In the event of the invalidity of individual clauses this shall not affect the validity of other clauses.
20.2.For contracts between the holder of the Ticket and the Federal Government, Austrian law applies, with the exception of the referral rules of international private law and the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. The place of performance and jurisdiction is Vienna, except in the event of a consumer business according to § 1 Consumer Protection Act (KSchG), BGBl No. 140/1979 idgF, where the Consumer Protection Act provides for a different jurisdiction for legal disputes in connection with the present General Terms and Conditions.
