4.2 D.N.R.T. is authorized to involve third parties in the execution of the agreement without notifying the Customer.

4.3 D.N.R.T. is authorized to organize multiple events with multiple Customers simultaneously at the same location, to the extent that the size of this location allows it.

4.4 D.N.R.T. is authorized to require the Customer (and/or the legal representative for minors) to sign a waiver/exoneration declaration before participating in an event. If the Customer does not sign this waiver/exoneration, D.N.R.T. has the right to exclude the Customer from participation.
