§ 1 General - scope

1. The following general terms and conditions apply to all business relationships between us and the customer. The version valid at the time the contract is concluded is decisive.

Customer i.S.d. Terms and conditions are both consumers and entrepreneurs.

3. Deviating, conflicting or supplementary general terms and conditions do not become part of the contract, even if they are known, unless their validity has been expressly approved in writing.

§ 2 conclusion of contract

1. Our offers are subject to change. Technical and other changes remain reserved within reason.

2. With the order, the customer declares his contract offer binding. We will immediately confirm receipt of the customer's order. The confirmation of receipt does not yet constitute a binding acceptance of the order. The confirmation of receipt can be combined with the declaration of acceptance.

3. We are entitled to accept the contract offer contained in the order within one week of receipt. This can also be done by sending the invoice and the goods ordered. We are entitled to refuse to accept the order - for example after checking the customer's creditworthiness.

4. The conclusion of the contract is subject to the reservation that in the event of incorrect or improper self-delivery, not or only partially. In the event of unavailability or only partial availability of the service, the customer will be informed immediately. The consideration will be refunded immediately.

§ 3 Withdrawal

If the customer is a consumer, the following applies:

Right of withdrawal:


You can cancel your contractual declaration within 14 days without giving reasons in text form (e.g. letter, fax, email) or - if the matter is left to you before the deadline - by returning the item. The period begins after receipt of this instruction in text form, however not before receipt of the goods by the recipient (in the case of the recurring delivery of similar goods not before receipt of the first partial delivery) and also not before fulfillment of our information obligations in accordance with Article 246 § 2 in conjunction with § 1 para 1 and 2 EGBGB and our obligations in accordance with Section 312g (1) sentence 1 BGB in conjunction with Article 246 Section 3 EGBGB.

In the event of an effective revocation, the services received on both sides must be returned and any benefits used (e.g. interest) surrendered. If you cannot return or return the received performance and uses (e.g. benefits of use) or only partially or only in a deteriorated condition, you must compensate us for the value. This can lead to you nevertheless having to fulfill the contractual payment obligations for the period up to the revocation. You only have to pay compensation for the deterioration of the item and for the use made, insofar as the use or the deterioration can be attributed to handling the item that goes beyond checking the properties and functionality. "Checking the properties and functionality" means testing and trying out the respective goods, as is possible and customary in a shop. Transportable items are to be returned at our risk. You have to bear the regular costs of the return if the delivered goods correspond to the ordered ones and if the price of the thing to be returned does not exceed an amount of 40 euros or if you have not received the consideration or a higher price of the thing at the time of the cancellation have made a contractually agreed partial payment. Otherwise, the return is free of charge. Items that cannot be sent as parcels will be picked up from you. Obligations to reimburse payments must be fulfilled within 30 days. The period begins for you when you send your cancellation or the goods, for us with their receipt.

Special instructions:

§ 4 Limitation of liability and exemption

1. In the case of slightly negligent breaches of duty, our liability is limited to the foreseeable, typical, direct average damage. This also applies to slightly negligent breaches of duty by our legal representatives or vicarious agents. We are not liable to entrepreneurs in the event of slightly negligent violation of insignificant contractual obligations. In any case, liability remains limited to the amount paid for the underlying service, unless there are legal regulations to the contrary.

2. The above limitations of liability do not affect the customer's claims arising from product liability. Furthermore, the liability restrictions do not apply to physical and health damage attributable to us or if the customer's life is lost.

§ 5 data protection

Data protection information).

For consumers who do not conclude the contract for professional or commercial purposes, this choice of law only applies insofar as the protection granted is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the law of the state in which the consumer is habitually resident. The provisions of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods do not apply.

2. If the customer is a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract is our place of business. The same applies if the customer has no general place of jurisdiction in Germany or if his place of residence or habitual residence is not known at the time the lawsuit is filed.

3. Should individual provisions of the contract with the customer, including these general terms and conditions, be or become ineffective in whole or in part, this does not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. The completely or partially ineffective regulation is to be replaced by a regulation whose economic success comes as close as possible to the ineffective one.

When calculating the above deadlines, the day of the event is not counted. After that, or if the participant does not show up, the full fee will be charged. Any expenses already incurred will be invoiced in any case. We reserve the right to cancel for organizational and technical reasons (e.g. if the minimum number of participants depending on the type of event is not reached or the speaker / lecturer fails for a short time). In the event of a cancellation by us, we will try to rebook you to another date and / or another venue, provided you agree to this. Otherwise you will get your paid fees back.

We are entitled to refuse the type of supplementary performance chosen if it is only possible with disproportionate costs and the other type of supplementary performance remains without significant disadvantages for the consumer.
