5. Participants in the driving experience must have reached the age of majority and be in possession of a valid driver's licence for passenger vehicles, except in performance driving initiation courses. For safety reasons, in the event a participant's physical state does not allow participation in the experience (medicines, alcohol, drugs, pregnant women, etc.), ORECA reserves the right to cancel participation in the course.

12. All the clauses set out in the present General Terms of Sale apply to participants in a driving experience and to individually registered individuals.

13. The company reserves the right to modify its services and prices at any time without notice and to market promotional offers at any time.

14. ORECA cannot be held responsible if weather conditions do not suit the Buyer.

The customer may not make claim to any compensation if the experience takes place during weather conditions that do not suit him or her.
If ORECA believes that the conditions do not allow driving that satisfies the safety terms, the experience will be cancelled and a replacement date will be offered. In no way will a payment be granted to the Buyer. It is understood that any event that is external, irreversible, unpredictable, or attributed to a case of force majeure, would not cause liability in this regard.
