  7. Management assumes no responsibility for the loss of valuable personal effects, money, and clothing. Any liability for damage or loss of glasses, watches, jewelry, clothing, or others is also excluded. The provision of a cloakroom locker does not justify any custody obligation on the part of GOTHICSAUNA. It is the guest’s responsibility to lock the lockers, check that they are properly closed, and keep the key. Furthermore, any liability for the return of lost and found items by persons other than the legitimate owner is excluded.

Entrance

  3. The management assumes no responsibility in the event of loss of loyalty cards or season tickets. The loss implies their replacement with new virgin cards. The season ticket must be purchased again at full price. Subscribers are advised to always keep the physical card with them. GOTHICSAUNA assumes no responsibility for customers who have the subscription deposited at the reception. Any type of card is personal, non-transferable except special gift vouchers.
  4. The loss of the key must be promptly reported to the reception. This is to avoid unwanted “visits” to your locker as well as to prevent any drinks made in the meantime from being charged to their rightful owner.

The amount will be returned to the customer if the key is found within 48 hours of loss upon presentation of the deposit receipt.
