By registering to participate in the EuroGames 2021, you accept the following Terms and Conditions:
The EuroGames 2021 are organized by Happy Copenhagen, a non-profit organisation registered in Copenhagen, Denmark (hereinafter referred to “HC”).
EuroGames® is licensed by the European Gay & Lesbian Sport Federation (EGLSF).
1. Disclosure of personal Information
I understand that as part of the registration process of the EuroGames 2021, personal information will be collected by HC and stored in accordance with Danish legislation. I accept the collection, use and disclosure of my personal information for the purpose of enabling my participation in the sports, conference and cultural program of the EuroGames 2021 and for the purpose of receiving information related to my participation in this event from HC in the form of electronic newsletters, promotional flyers and other communication media.
I give my consent that HC may disclose my personal information to any third parties that are involved in the organisation, on behalf of HC, of the EuroGames 2021 and to the European Gay & Lesbian Sport Federation for the purposes of promoting the EuroGames 2021 and to promote future events of EGLSF’s member associations.
2. Age Policy
The age limit for participation in the EuroGames in 2021 is 18 years. Accordingly, participants must be 18 years old or older by 17 August 2021.
3. Gender Policy
HC affirms and supports the rights of athletes to compete as their true selves and to compete in the gender category that accords with their gender identity.
Male categories are open to all who identify as male, and female categories open to all who identify as female.
We recognize that a binary definition of gender excludes people who are non-binary, and so in sports with different gender categories, we will have a third category for non-binary athletes.
During the registration process, athletes are asked about their sexual and gender identity, and whether their gender identity is different to the gender they were assigned at birth. Please note that these are optional questions. The data helps us monitor inclusion, diversity and representation at the EuroGames in 2021. Furthermore, we will use the data to create a push for greater inclusion in sports by proving that it is indeed possible.
4. Health and Insurance
I declare that I am in a physically fit and healthy state which is required for participation in events of the EuroGames in 2021 for which I am registering, and that I am not aware of any serious medical condition that would prevent me participating in these physical activities. For clarification, it is agreed that having been diagnosed as HIV positive is not considered a “serious medical condition” for the purposes of this clause.
If I sustain an injury or illness while participating in any role in the EuroGames 2021, I hereby authorise any medical or health personnel to perform and administer first aid medical treatment as deemed necessary and to seek more specialised medical attention at hospitals and health care institutions if deemed necessary by any first aid and medical staff or contractors of HC.
I accept that it is my responsibility to organise my own travel insurance and personal accident insurance to cover my property and myself for the whole period of the EuroGames in 2021. I agree that I have hereby been advised to acquire adequate personal accident and health care insurance as a participant in any role in the EuroGames in 2021.
I acknowledge that I am fully aware of the risks and hazards inherent to participation in the different events of the EuroGames in 2021. I acknowledge and agree that I have elected to voluntarily enter this agreement and to assume all risks of loss, damage and injury, including death, that I may sustain as a consequence of my participation in any of the sports or other events that I have registered for. I hereby fully release HC and all of its affiliated companies, sponsors, servants, agents, officers, directors, members and employees from any claims, actions, suits or demands of whichever nature arising out of or related in any way to my participation in the events of the EuroGames 2021, including any loss, damage, injury or death sustained by any third party as a result, directly or indirectly, of my participation in the event.

Applicable rules and regulations include – but are not limited to:
- The Danish national anti-doping rules (”Dopingreglement for motionsidræt under Danmarks Idrætsforbund (DIF), Dansk Firmaidrætsforbund (Firmaidrætten) og DGI”)
I agree that any failure to comply with the official instructions, rules and regulations of HC or governing bodies for sports, conference and culture events may result in immediate disqualification from events or from the games.

I am aware that some venues or locations may have restricted accessibility or restrictions to serve special needs. HC is committed to make sports, politics and culture accessible for everyone. Denmark has legislation that prohibits any kind of discrimination based on special needs or disabilities. The EuroGames 2021 will follow local legislation and aim for a fully accessible event independent of any special needs or disabilities.
7. Refund Policy
Venues, competition days and schedules of events may be changed or cancelled at HC’s absolute discretion, after which HC may decide to provide a refund of participation fees. In the event that HC cancels the entire event, or parts of the event, for any reason whatsoever, including in case of COVID-19 restrictions or limitations, I agree that I will have no claim or take no action against HC in respect of any loss, damage or expenses incurred by me as a result of such cancellation, and I accept and agree that I will only be entitled to a refund of the registration fee.

If at any time during the event, officials designated by HC determine, at their sole discretion, that my actions may result in the devaluation of said sponsor rights or competes with the event sponsors, I will be required to immediately cease such action, including the removal of any uniforms, signs or other items that compete with sponsor or potentially devalues such sponsorship.
