Area of Validity

These General Terms and Conditions of Business apply to all legal transactions entered into on the one hand by Deutsch im Trend e.U., particularly with respect to services rendered within the scope of courses organised by Deutsch im Trend e.U., and, on the other hand, its customers.
The relevant version of the General Terms and Conditions of Business shall be the version valid at the time of contract conclusion. The General Terms and Conditions of Business shall also be applicable to future agreements – even if/when supplementary contracts fail to mention this explicitly. Should individual provisions of these General Terms and Conditions of Business be or become invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions, or that of contracts concluded on their basis. Each invalid provision shall be replaced by a valid one which comes as close as possible to the original provision in terms of its general sense and economic intent.

2. Registration in person

It is only possible for intensive courses and by appointment. A registration form has to be filled in and the tuition fee has to be paid in full by online banking or bank transfer. You will get all other information via mail. Joining a course late and/or dropping out (leaving the course before its scheduled end) does not entitle participants to any reduction of their tuition fees. Please see our current discounts.

Withdrawal rights for distance sales customers

If the contract is entered into by any means of communication at a distance such as e-mail or online registration forms, the customer, provided being a consumer, is entitled to withdraw from the contract within 14 calendar days of its conclusion without citing any reason. This applies for courses as well as examinations and all other services provided by Deutsch im Trend e.U.
If the service has started before the right to withdraw has expired, the contractual partner, by accepting these conditions, agrees that the right to withdraw within 14 days shall not apply.
Once the first lesson of the course has commenced, the withdrawal right is void.
Withdrawals must be sent to:

Deutsch im Trend e.U.
Ziegelstraße 20d/4, 8045 Graz
or office@deutsch-im-trend.com

If you withdraw from the contract we have to refund you all payments we have received promptly at latest within 14 days after the date when the withdrawal form arrived. For the refund we use the same means of payment as the original transaction was done, unless we agreed differently on this matter before. Fees will not be charged in any case.
