These rules govern the professional activities of the media at the Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz 2017 («the event»), including its social events, as well as the relationship between the media and the «event organiser» Evviva Polo St. Moritz Ltd. 

No right to accreditation

The decision as to who will be accredited to work at the Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz («the event») lies solely with the event organiser. There is no entitlement to accreditation. Persons accompanying the media professionals will not obtain media accreditation.

Access to the grounds, facilities and social events

The event’s grounds and facilities are divided into areas of differing access rights. Media professionals have access to the public areas, the media centres on the lake as well as to the staff lounge (in the catering tent) on the lake.

Media professionals that are accredited as photographers or camerapersons will obtain a special badge and have access to all photo areas. There is limited space in the photo areas. At times of surplus demand, the event organiser will decide upon individual access to the photo areas.

Media professionals have limited access to the VIP areas on the lake (tents and terraces) given limited space and in order to safeguard the privacy of the guests. Access will be determined by the event organiser.

Media professionals have limited access to the social events outside the grounds on the lake given limited space and in order to safeguard the privacy of the guests. Access will be determined by the event organiser.

Working at own risk

Media professionals conduct their work at their own risk and at their own expense. The event organiser cannot be held responsible for any injury, damage or loss incurred on the grounds or at social occasions of the event. There is no right of recourse against companies, bodies, contractors, sub-contractors or employees of the event organiser for any injury, damage or loss incurred during the event or at its social events. 

The right to privacy

We would like to draw your attention to the fact that Swiss law provides far-reaching protection of people’s privacy and the right to their own image.  In public places, Swiss law provides for the «Freedom of panorama». Public places and gatherings of people—such as at an event—may be photographed and published in their entirety, but not depicting individual people. The provisions of the Swiss laws apply.

No VIP areas, neither in the tents nor in the open spaces, and none of the other locations at which social occasions of the event take place are deemed to be public places. The right to privacy applies unreservedly. Any guest has the right not to be photographed or filmed.

Aerial photography and use of drones

Aerial photography over the event's grounds is subject to special permission by the media service of the organiser and the airport authority of Engadin Airport.

The event takes place in the proximity to an airport and two heliports. Therefore, the use of any kind of tele-controlled drones is prohibited by Swiss law and airport regulations.

Revoking the accreditation

The event organiser reserves the right to withdraw the media accreditation at any time. Such may occur, specifically, if an accredited person, its assistant or accompanying person do not comply with the eules of accreditation, or put themselves, others or horses in danger or hinder them from participating in the competition, cause any disturbance of the event or do not comply with the right to privacy of the guests. 

Right of quotation

The event organiser has the right to quote or make a link, in its own means of communication, to media products that have been published in connection with the event or its social events. The provisions of the Swiss law on quotations as stated in the copyright act apply.
