General Terms and Conditions
If you register for a course, the following contractual conditions apply

1. Registration and Contract
By registering in writing by post or e-mail, you offer us a binding offer to conclude the contract and at the same time accept our general terms and conditions. This also applies to all persons listed in the registration, for whose contractual obligations the registering party is also liable. The registration is binding if it is not revoked within 2 working days after receipt.
With the acceptance of the registration by us, the valid teaching contract for the duration of the booked course comes into effect; you will be informed of this by sending a confirmation of registration and an invoice. Included in the contract are service descriptions, the conditions and other explanations for the individual seminars as described on the homepage and in brochures.

2. Payment
After conclusion of the contract, the course fee will be transferred to the account of the organizer. A place in the booked course is reserved when the course fee arrives in the organiser’s account. If we are unable to confirm your registration (e.g. in the event of overcrowding), we will contact you immediately in order to find a suitable alternative course in consultation with you. If this is not possible, you will be reimbursed immediately and in full for any payment already made.
If the total amount has not been paid in full at the beginning of the seminar, we are entitled to claim damages in the amount of the corresponding cancellation fees.
Please transfer the total amount according to the conditions and deadlines described here to the account you will find in your email confirmation:

4. Service and Price Changes
Should deviations and changes from the agreed contract become necessary after conclusion of the contract, which were not brought about by us contrary to good faith, these are only permitted if they are not significant and do not affect the overall design of the booked seminar.
We must inform you of such a permissible change to a service immediately after we become aware of the reason for the change; in this case you can withdraw from the contract free of charge or instead request participation in another seminar of at least the same value. In such a case, you must assert these rights immediately after receipt of our declaration.
Price changes are not allowed after the course has been booked. As a rule, the fees for the following year are fixed in October of the previous year and then remain unchanged.

5. Withdrawal, rebooking, substitutes
At any time before the start of the seminar, you can withdraw from the booking by means of a corresponding written declaration. The receipt of your declaration of withdrawal by us is decisive for the time of withdrawal.
In the event of withdrawal from the contract or non-appearance, we can demand a lump sum compensation per registered participant calculated according to the price listed in the seminar description to compensate for the costs we have already incurred as follows: from the 90th day

before the start of the seminar 25%, from the 45th day before the start of the seminar day before the start of the seminar 45%, from the 20th day before the start of the seminar 65%, from the 5th day before the start of the seminar to 90% from the 1st day before the start of the seminar (date of arrival) to 100%

If you do not appear at the seminar without having received a written declaration of cancellation, the full seminar price will be charged.
If a substitute person takes his place through the mediation of a registered participant, we are entitled to demand a lump sum of €20 for the additional work involved; if we provide a replacement person, this flat rate increases to €45.

If the minimum number of participants specified in the course description is not reached or if the course cannot take place due to unforeseeable circumstances, we are entitled to withdraw from the contract up to 7 days before the start of the course. We will inform you immediately, the payments you have already made will be refunded immediately and in full. The costs you have already incurred (e.g. for travel cancellation insurance or travel expenses) cannot be reimbursed in the event of cancellation on our part. Further claims do not exist.

6. Warranty, Liability and Limitation of Liability
We undertake to provide the services described through conscientious preparation and implementation of the seminars in such a way that they have the guaranteed content and are not afflicted with errors that reduce or eliminate the value or suitability of the entire event. As part of the duty of care of a prudent businessman, we guarantee conscientious seminar preparation, careful selection and monitoring of the lecturers and service providers, correctness of the service descriptions and proper provision of the agreed services.

The participant is obliged to cooperate in the event of disruptions to performance within the framework of the statutory provisions, to avoid any damage or to keep it to a minimum.

We are not liable for disruptions in performance in connection with third-party services (e.g. excursions, supporting programme, etc.) that we only mediate.

We are not liable for disruptions in performance in connection with third-party services that are only mediated and are expressly marked as such in the seminar description.
A claim for damages is limited or excluded insofar as a claim for damages against the service provider can only be asserted under certain conditions or restrictions due to international conventions or statutory provisions based on such, which are to be applied to the services to be provided by a service provider certain conditions are excluded.
