Visitors enter CORPUS at their own risk. Parents and supervisors are responsible for the behaviour of their children. The instructions of our staff must be followed at all times. We urge visitors to respect our theatres and set pieces. We kindly but urgently request visitors to dispose of their waste in the waste bins provided. Our staff are entitled to remove from the CORPUS premises visitors who do not abide by the above-mentioned terms and conditions for visitors or who are disturbing, or threaten to disturb, the order. In such a case, the visitor has no right to compensation.
It is only possible to enter CORPUS with a valid admission ticket. Visitors should keep this admission ticket in a safe place during their visit to CORPUS and show it on request to one of our employees. The admission ticket is only valid on the day of issue (with the exception of subscriptions and tickets sold by third parties) and loses its validity when leaving CORPUS. Children under the age of 6 are not admitted to CORPUS. CORPUS recommends an age of 8 years and above. (See item 16. for rules on the supervision of children). By order of the fire service, buggies and prams are not allowed in the 'journey through the human body’ at CORPUS. CORPUS always reserves the right to refuse access to persons who, for example, are under the influence of alcohol or drugs or who are disturbing, or threaten to disturb, the peace.
With regard to visitor safety, it is strictly forbidden for anyone to enter the technical area and/or areas designated as accessible to staff only. Visitors are not permitted to go under the platforms. CORPUS is not responsible for damage caused to personal belongings, clothing and/or body parts.

7. Photographing and filming
It is not permitted to take photographs or to film in the 'journey through the human body'. It is permitted to take photographs in 'my CORPUS', but only for personal use. The publication of visual and/or sound material is prohibited unless the management of CORPUS has granted permission in writing in advance. It is possible that you may be filmed or photographed as a guest. CORPUS always reserves the right to use this material for publication.
CORPUS is designed in such a way that not every section can receive a large number of guests at the same time. It is therefore possible that, in the event of large numbers of visitors, not every part of 'My CORPUS' can be visited. CORPUS is not liable for any damage or disappointment. The 'journey through the human body' is controlled by various techniques. It is possible that delays may occur because of a technical malfunction. In the event of delays, CORPUS will not refund the admission price.
CORPUS is carefully maintained. Nevertheless, visitors may encounter an unsafe situation or damage. We ask visitors to report this as soon as possible to one of our employees, so that we can take action. It can also happen that the visitor unintentionally causes damage. In this case, too, we request that the visitor reports this to the reception desk before leaving CORPUS.
Should visitors incur damage during their visit to CORPUS, they should report this to the reception desk before departure. Any compensation for damage reported at a later date is in any event ruled out. CORPUS accepts no liability whatsoever for any loss or damage sustained by the guest unless such loss or damage is the direct result of an intentional act on the part of CORPUS or one of our employees. Nor can any liability be accepted in the event of loss or damage to items handed over to CORPUS for safekeeping. The exclusion of liability does not apply insofar as CORPUS receives compensation from an insurance company or other third party regarding the risk which has arisen.
11. Promotion and sales
The promotion or sale of services and/or products within CORPUS, on the grounds of CORPUS or on the access road is not permitted without prior written permission from the CORPUS management.
The parking spaces within CORPUS and on the grounds of CORPUS belong to CORPUS. The parking spaces can be used during the opening hours of CORPUS, provided that the person using the car buys an admission ticket for CORPUS. Visitors pay a fixed amount per car. A parking ticket costs €7 and is valid for four hours from the moment the car enters the car park. If the visitor uses the parking space for less than four hours, he or she will not receive a reduction in the parking fee or admission charge. Should all the parking spaces within CORPUS and on the grounds of CORPUS be occupied, the visitor will have to find another parking space. The costs of this parking cannot be recovered from CORPUS. CORPUS does not guarantee that a parking space will always be available.
Smoking is not permitted inside CORPUS. In the context of the 'smoke-free generation', smoking is also not permitted on the forecourt or in the car park.
