Public and private premises while the right to enter such premises and access control are based exclusively on a valid ticket or valid personal card or accreditation issued by the Operator or tenant. A visitor may enter the premises of O2 universum and move within such premises only with valid ticket (accreditation). Entry and stay of each visitor is strictly regulated according to ticket (accreditation) type held by the particular visitor or according to the tenant’s instructions for the particular event. Other persons entering O2 universum must possess a valid personal card or accreditation issued (approved) by the Operator and their movement within the premises of O2 universum is always subject to performance their tasks in given premises (e.g., Operator’s employees, employees of O2 universum Operator’s suppliers, tenant’s employees).
O2 universum premises are divided into four categories depending on the limitations and visitors’ access control: a) public premises accessible to all visitors, b) public premises accessible to visitors according to specification on the ticket, c) private premises accessible to selected visitors according to specification on accreditation card, and d) private premises inaccessible to visitors (only for employees and suppliers of Bestsport, a.s.).
