1. Scope of application
The following contractual conditions apply to all training measures carried out by VERMOP GmbH (open, inter-company or in-service seminars, courses, training and in-house training, hereinafter referred to as “training measures”), irrespective of whether these measures are carried out on the premises of VERMOP GmbH or externally. General Terms and Conditions of Business to the contrary, in particular of the customer or participant, are not the subject of the contractual relationship with VERMOP GmbH.
Prior registration is required for participation in the training measures. The binding registration can be made by letter, fax, e-mail or Internet. The registrations will be considered by VERMOP GmbH in the order in which they are received. The contract between VERMOP GmbH and the customer is concluded by sending the declaration of acceptance in text form. VERMOP GmbH will send the declaration of acceptance promptly in advance of the respective training measure.
The advertised training measure will be carried out in accordance with the published programme content and the legal requirements. VERMOP GmbH reserves the right to exchange the instructor or to change the course of the event, provided that the purpose of the training course is not changed as a result. VERMOP GmbH is also entitled to carry out the training course at a location other than that advertised, whereby the participants must be informed of this change at least two weeks before the start of the training course. Should VERMOP GmbH change the location of the training course, the customer is entitled to withdraw from the contract free of charge. The declaration of withdrawal must be received by VERMOP GmbH within two weeks of receipt of the notification of the change. In the case of in-house training courses, the venue is determined in advance with the customer.
4. Obligations of the participant
The participant undertakes to observe the house rules valid at the place of instruction, to follow the usual instructions of the teaching or training staff as well as the representatives of the organizer and his assistants. If the customer is not also a participant, he must oblige the participant(s) sent by him to comply with the above regulation.
Photography, filming, recording on tape or any other electrical or electronic recording of the training course is not permitted. The documents, software and other media provided to the participants for training purposes may not be passed on or otherwise reproduced – even in part – without the written confirmation of VERMOP GmbH.
6. Withdrawal, termination, cancellation costs
The participant or customer is entitled to name a substitute participant from his own staff. In the event of withdrawal, which must be declared in writing, the full contract price is basically owed. However, the organizer is entitled to charge the following expense rates in the event of withdrawal within the specified periods:- less than 4 weeks before the educational event: calculation of 25% – less than 3 weeks before the educational event: calculation of 50% – less than 2 weeks before the educational event: calculation of 75% – less than 10 days before the educational event: calculation of 100% of the accrued participation fee. The date of receipt of the declaration by VERMOP GmbH is decisive. If there is a waiting list for the training event, VERMOP GmbH will contact the relevant interested parties immediately. If one of the interested parties moves up, the customer only owes a processing fee i. H. of 50.00 € net. If the customer arranges a replacement customer, only this processing fee is also due. The customer is at liberty to prove that VERMOP GmbH has incurred a lower loss or that the saved expenditure is higher. VERMOP GmbH can withdraw from the contract due to lack of participation, cancellation or absence of the speaker or other reasons for which VERMOP GmbH is not responsible. VERMOP GmbH will notify the corresponding declaration promptly after the relevant circumstances are known. However, in the event of an apparent lack of participants, VERMOP GmbH can wait until 7 days before the planned start of the training course. In the event of withdrawal by VERMOP GmbH, payments already made will be refunded. Further claims against VERMOP GmbH due to withdrawal are excluded. In the case of company-specific in-house training courses, the written agreement of the contracting parties applies. Should a cancellation occur, the costs already incurred will be invoiced according to expenditure and – if possible – according to receipts and a time protocol. Preparation hours spent internally with the organizer are charged as follows:For the speaker: 100.00 € / hour For the office work: 45.00 € / hour Travel expenses: 0.35 € / kilometer travel time speaker: 65.00 € / hour.
7. Terms of payment
