The contract is concluded by the written registration request of the participant and the sending of the written registration confirmation (e-mail or letter).

For this repayment, the organizer shall use the same means of payment that was used by the participant in the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise.
4. Seminar fees and invoicing:
In the course of the written acceptance by the organizer, the participant receives an invoice from the organizer for the seminar fees. The participant has 14 days to pay the invoice. During this period, the organizer will reserve a place for the participant in the requested seminar. By paying the invoice, the participant is bindingly registered.
5. Termination, withdrawal, cancellation and non-appearance of the participant:
Participants may terminate the contract at any time for good cause. Conclusion of the contract is the day of sending the written registration confirmation by the organizer to the participant. Cancellation or withdrawal is only possible in writing (e-mail or letter). In the event of a termination, withdrawal or cancellation, we will charge the following processing fees:
– Cancellation up to 4 weeks before the start of the event: € 150,- plus VAT
(€ 178,50 incl. VAT)
– Cancellation 4 weeks or more before the start of the seminar: the full seminar fee plus VAT.
A participant who does not show up for the seminar or does not show up in part is generally obligated to pay the full fees.
6. Designation of a representative by the participant:
Participants may at any time nominate a representative to take the place of the registered participant. The nomination of a substitute must be made in writing (e-mail or letter). The nomination of a substitute does not result in any additional costs for the participant.
7. Cancellation of seminars by the organizer:
The organizer reserves the right to cancel seminars due to force majeure or for good cause, e.g. in the event of the cancellation/illness of a speaker, insufficient number of participants, etc. The registered participants will be informed immediately and any seminar fees already paid will be refunded. The registered participants will be informed immediately and, if applicable, already paid seminar fees will be refunded. Further liability and compensation claims, which do not concern the injury of life, body or health, are excluded, as far as there is no intent or gross negligence of the organizer.
8. Reservations for changes:
The organizer is entitled to make necessary changes to the content, methods and organization or to deviations (e.g. due to changes in standards) before or during the event, provided that these do not significantly change the benefit of the announced event for the participant. The organizer is entitled to replace the scheduled speakers in case of need (e.g. illness, accident) with other persons equally qualified with regard to the announced topic. A change of a speaker does not entitle the participant to withdraw from the contract or to reduce the fee. The documents provided within the framework of the seminar are prepared to the best of our knowledge. Liability and warranty for the correctness, topicality, completeness and quality of the contents are excluded.
9. Retention of title and use of teaching materials:
The organizer retains unrestricted ownership of all deliveries of teaching materials until the customer has fulfilled all payment obligations in full. The passing on to third parties, i.e. to persons who are neither colleagues nor employees of the participant, or public distribution or making available of course documents or teaching materials is not permitted. In particular, the publication of audio or video data, digital presentations or scripts in publicly accessible Internet portals (sharing) is prohibited.
10. Personal responsibility
Participation in the seminar is at your own risk. All participants retain – as far as no other legal basis exists – full responsibility and liability for themselves.
As far as legally permissible, Stuttgart is agreed as the place of jurisdiction. The law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply.
12. Severability clause
Should any provision of this contract be invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. The parties undertake to replace any invalid provision with a valid provision that comes as close as possible to the invalid provision.
