1 General, Applicability
Hager & Meisinger GmbH Continuing Professional Development Events take place exclusively on
the basis of these General Terms and Conditions. Conflicting provisions or alternative terms and

Continuing Professional Development Events are not applicable unless Hager & Meisinger GmbH
has expressly agreed in writing to their application.

submitted in writing. Because of the limited participation numbers for our Continuing Professional
Development Events, course applications will be processed in order of receipt.

application by Hager & Meisinger GmbH.
3 Course Fee, Payment
3.1 Course fees are exclusive of statutory VAT, save where stated otherwise.
3.2 The course fee is payable before the commencement of the continuing professional
development event in accordance with the content of the invoice. Where a direct debit mandate has
been provided the course fee will be debited on the due date.

4.1 If a course participant cancels between 14 and 7 days before the commencement of the course
the participant will be invoiced for compensation at the rate of 50% of the course fee. In the event of
cancellation up to 3 days before the commencement of the course the compensation will be 70%
and in the event of later cancellation 100% of the course fee.

requirements, free of administrative charges.

there is no entitlement to claim damages. If at this point course fees have already been paid, they
will be reimbursed.

7 Limitation of Liability
7.1 We shall be liable for cases of inability to comply and impossibility of performance for which we
are responsible. In addition we shall be liable for damages in accordance with statutory provisions
in the event of intent, gross negligence, the taking over of a guarantee and injury for which we are
responsible to life, limb or health. Furthermore if through ordinary negligence we breach an
obligation whose performance is necessary for the orderly performance of the contract and where
the course participant may ordinarily rely on compliance, or obligations where breach may
compromise the purpose of the contract, our liability to pay damages is limited to such damages as
are foreseeable and might typically occur under the contract. In all other cases of liability, claims for
compensation by reason of the breach of a duty arising from the relationship under the law of
obligations and because of tortious acts are excluded, with the consequence that we are in this
respect not liable for the financial losses of course participants.
7.2 To the extent that our liability is excluded or limited by reason of the preceding provisions, this
shall also be the case in relation to the personal liability of our personnel, employees, agents and
8 Applicable Law, Jurisdiction

Commercial Code, legal entity under public law or special fund under public law, Neuss shall have
jurisdiction in respect of all rights and obligations of the parties to the contract. The same shall apply
if the businessperson has no domestic place of general jurisdiction, relocates his domicile or usual
place of residence abroad after the making of the contract or if his domicile or usual place of
residence is not known at the time when the claim is made. We may however also issue
proceedings against the client at his general place of jurisdiction.
