General terms and conditions

These General Terms and Conditions apply to every offer of Absolut Academy GmbH. Validity: as of November 2018.

Registration and payment of the course fee

The written registration obligates you to pay the course fee. Non-payment of the course fee is not considered a cancellation.

Course organization

For organizational reasons, we reserve the right to postpone or combine classes, change the venue or reduce courses with a percentage refund of the course fee. If a course leader drops out, Absolut Academy GmbH can change the course leader or appoint a substitute.

Course locations and implementation

In order to run our courses under optimal conditions, we set a minimum and a maximum number of participants for each course. Course places are allocated in the order in which registrations are received (subject to timely payment). If the number of participants is insufficient, the course will usually not be held and the course fee will be waived or refunded.
If a class is under-subscribed, we may in individual cases run the course subject to the consent of the course participants, but increase the course fee accordingly or, where appropriate, reduce the number of lessons while keeping the price the same.

Course exclusion

Absolut Academy GmbH reserves the right to exclude one or more course participants from a course with justification. In the following cases, the entire course fee is owed, i.e. there is neither a proportional refund nor a waiver of the course fee: Course exclusion due to non-payment of the course fee as well as in serious cases (defamation, harassment, intentional damage to property, etc.).
