1. Subject matter of the contract

Prices, quotations and descriptions quoted or mentioned do not constitute an offer and may be withdrawn or modified by SHIFTSCHOOL at any time prior to express acceptance of your registration.

The subject matter of the contract is the implementation of the respective agreed program or the respective agreed training/consulting activity by SHIFTSCHOOL. Your application can be made by mail or e-mail. We process applications within 14 days. If we accept you into the course or program, you will receive a confirmation stating the booked program/service. The confirmation can also be done by mail or e-mail. You will also receive a detailed invoice for the amount of the fees. Only with the confirmation of registration the contract comes into effect. The contract is concluded with the Participant. If the Participant is not the registrant, he/she does not become a contractual partner.

2. Payment modalities

The prices/fees are generally due for payment in full before the start of the program. However, we also offer payment by installments upon request. The corresponding modalities will be discussed individually.

The registration to a SHIFTSCHOOL program is binding. As an Participant, you are personally responsible for the cost of the course (local VAT may apply). A seat in the course is not guaranteed until the course fee is paid. The fee must be paid in full no later than 14 days after the invoice date or 2 weeks before the start of the course (whichever is sooner). Seats in a program are bound to a person and cannot be transferred to other persons.

3. Right of Withdrawal

You have the right to withdraw from this contract within 14 days without giving any reason.

To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform us (SHIFTSCHOOL GmbH, Sommerstraße 8, 90762 Fürth, Germany, start@shiftschool.de) of your decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by mail or e-mail). To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired.

Effects of withdrawal

If you withdraw from this contract, we shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract. We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement.

Regardless of the general right of withdrawal, we grant you the following contractual right of withdrawal: You can withdraw from the contract in text form up to 4 weeks before the start of the program. 10% of each course fee is considered a registration fee and is non-refundable.

4. Cancellation

If you need to cancel your registration, the following terms apply:

Between registration and 2 weeks before the start of the course, 50% of the total fee will be charged. Less than 2 weeks before the start of the course, 80% of the total fee will be charged. After the start of the course cancellation is no longer possible. Exceptions are made for illness proved by a doctor’s certificate. In this case, the participant can transfer to another program at a later date.

5. Program adjustments and cancellation by SHIFTSCHOOL

SHIFTSCHOOL names trainers and specific program items to illustrate the program. There is no claim to exactly these trainers and units.

SHIFTSCHOOL is entitled to adjust the program at any time, as far as this is
acceptable for the Participant; acceptable are in particular changes in content which do not affect the learning objectives significantly. Dates will only be postponed to the extent that this is acceptable for the Participant; This is particularly the case if coaches are unavailable through no fault of their own (e.g. sickness). If a change of venue must be made, it will be announced at least one week prior to the event.

We reserve the right to cancel a course due to low enrollment up to 14 days before the course starts. In the event of cancellation, fees already paid will be refunded; further claims (reimbursement of travel and accommodation costs, loss of work, etc.) are excluded.
