1. Scope

1.1 The following Terms and Conditions apply to all legal transactions between Anna Auf dem Berge (hereinafter referred to as „contractor“) and its contractual partner (hereinafter referred to as „client“) in their version valid at the time of conclusion of the contract. With the commissioning, these Terms and Conditions are deemed to be accepted by the client.

1.2 Derogations of the client are not recognized unless they have been expressly approved by the contractor.

2. Subject matter of the contract

2.1 The contractor provides services in the areas of coaching, consulting, training, seminars, speeches and events for private individuals and organisations in accordance with these General Terms and Conditions (GTC). The services can be used by individuals or groups. An exact description and listing of the service offer can be found in the premises of the contractor, his online presence, and in other media used by the contractor.

2.2 Clients can be a natural person or corporate entity. The client can make use of the contractually agreed services personally or appoint another person to use the service (hereinafter referred to as „participant“). In this case, the client remains the contractual partner and is fully responsible for the behavior of the participant.

2.3 The goals, contents and scope of the services result from the discussions held in the individual case as well as the offers, service descriptions or contracts agreed in writing. The goals, contents and scope of open events result from the event descriptions valid at the time of the conclusion of the contract.

2.4 If, during the accomplishment of the service, the contractor determines that, due to the course of the process, changes to the goals, contents or scope originally agreed with the client/participant or the order of processing are necessary to be altered, he is allowed to decide on the nature and scope of the change within his discretionary scope. The contractor may, at its discretion, extend individual points with regard to the overall objective, while partially scaling others back. The contractor may postpone goals and content in favor of achieving and processing other goals and content. The contractor will discuss the necessary changes in the planned procedure with the client/participant at the earliest possible time. There is no right of the client to reduce the fee.

3. Conclusion of contract

3.1 A contract is concluded by the order of the client and the corresponding order acceptance of the contractor. The order by the client as well as the order acceptance of the contractor can be made in writing, by email or orally.

3.2 Registrations for open events are made by submitting the registration form via an online order system or by email and are processed by the contractor in the order in which they are received, as the number of participants is generally limited. The contract for open events is concluded by the sending a confirmation of registration to the client/participant. The confirmation of registration is always subject to the proviso that the envisaged minimum number of participants of the respective event will be achieved.

3.3 Time and place of the agreed services are agreed between the contractor and the client/participant individually according to availability. For open events, the venue as well as the date are determined by the contractor and listed in the event description and the confirmation of registration.

3.4 There is no general entitlement to participate in the service offer. The contractor reserves the right to refuse registrations without giving reasons.

3.5 If a booking is made via an online order system, its Terms and Conditions apply in addition.

4. Remuneration

4.1 In each case the agreed hourly, daily or event fee of the contractor plus the valid value added tax of currently 19% will be charged. Hourly fees are calculated by the half-hour commenced. Invoices will be charged per session, per day or per event. Invoices must be paid no later than 30 days after invoicing by bank transfer to the account specified in the invoice. Advance payments, monthly billing, retainer fees and lump sums are possible. These are, however, agreed individually.

4.2 Additional costs, such as costs for room rental, travel and accommodation costs, material costs, additional telephone charges outside of the contractor’s mobile phone contract, etc., will be invoiced to the customer separately in a reasonable amount, unless otherwise agreed. Cash expenses and special costs incurred by the contractor at the express request of the client/participant will be charged at cost price. A possible billing of the travel times is agreed separately in each case.

4.3 The preparation costs incurred in connection with the agreed range of services (e.g. quotations, scheduling) will not be charged separately. Additional services that are requested by the client beyond the agreed services (e.g. additional calls, appointments or protocols) will be billed at the clock at the applicable fee rates and conditions.

4.4 If the payment deadlines are exceeded, the contractor shall be entitled to a default interest of 5% above the base interest rate for private persons without further reminder. For business customers, the contractor is entitled to default interest in the amount of 8% above the base interest rate without further reminder.

4.5 Participation fees for open events are due no later than 14 days after confirmation of registration, unless they have already been paid at the time of booking (for example, through an online payment system). If the period up to the event at the time of registration is less than 14 days, the participation fee is payable no later than 7 days before the start of the event. If the period up to the event at the time of registration is less than 7 days, the participation fee is due immediately. With the receipt of payment the participation in the event is secured. Without payment before the beginning of the event no participation is possible. If the payment deadlines are exceeded, the contractor is entitled to cancel the registration and to allocate the place elsewhere.

4.6 Travel, accommodation and meals are, unless otherwise stated or agreed in the event description, not included in the fee, and therefore to be borne by the client/participant.

4.7 Further or deviating details regarding the range of services and the general conditions govern the agreed offers, service descriptions or contracts in the currently valid version.

5. Cancellation policy

5.1 Agreed appointments are always binding. Appointments can be canceled or postponed by the client/participant free of charge up to 48 hours in advance. In case of cancellation or postponement between 48 and 24 hours before the appointment, 50% of the hourly, daily or event fee will be charged. In case of later cancellations or no-shows, the complete hourly, daily or event fee will be charged. Alternatively, the coach offers the client a telephone coaching at the agreed time and in the agreed duration. A partially participation in the service offer does not entitle the client/participant to reduce the agreed fee.

5.2 After registering for an open event, cancellations or rebookings can be made free of charge up to 4 weeks before the start of the event. The participation fee will be refunded within 14 days. For cancellations or rebookings between 4 and 2 weeks before the start of the event, 50% of the participation fee will be charged. For cancellations or rebookings less than 2 weeks before the start of the event, the participation fee will be due in full. The registration of a replacement participant is possible without further costs. Cancellations or rebookings must be made in writing.

5.3 The statutory right of cancellation of the consumer is unaffected by the above conditions.

5.4 The contractor is entitled to cancel or postpone appointments and events without giving a reason. This also includes cancellation by the contractor due to illness, an accident or similar. There will be no right to claim service by the client/participant. In this case, the client/participant will be informed as soon as possible and, in the case of cancellation, if applicable, will receive back full payments already made for services not provided, unless a replacement date has been agreed. For open events, the contractor is entitled to hold the event on a replacement date. If no replacement date is offered by the contractor, the client will receive back the paid participation fee. Further compensation, in particular claims for compensation or damages or cancellation fees for travel and accommodation costs, cannot be asserted.

6. Copyright

6.1 Within the scope of the service offer, the contractor provides the client/participant with content and documents in the form of worksheets, concepts or audio and video files.

This applies at least until the time at which the suspicion can be eliminated.

As an exception, the contractor is exempted from the duty of confidentiality if urgent legitimate interests (e.g. the assertion of fee claims) require disclosure.

8.2 The client exempts the contractor from the duty of confidentiality in regards to the supervisor of the contractor. The supervisor serves the contractor for professional, psychological or educational reflection, qualification and quality assurance of the service offer.

Ron Hubbard and that he does not attend or has not attended courses and/or seminars with the Scientology organisation using L. Ron Hubbard technology and that this technology is not part of any provided services. The contractor further states that he rejects and expressly dissociates from the L. Ron Hubbard technology. With conclusion of the contract, the client assures that the same applies for him and his participants.

9.2 An incorrect assurance of this, the repeated disturbance of events or sessions, punishable acts against the contractor or other participants (e.g. theft, personal insults) as well as the acknowledgment of criminal acts of the client/participant towards third parties entitle the contractor to exclude the client/participant from further participation in events or end the session immediately.

9.3 The client/participant undertakes not to be under the influence of alcohol or other narcotics, which may affect their ability to react and their physical condition, during an event or session. In case of violations, the contractor is entitled to exclude the participant from the event or to end the session.

9.4 The knowledge of physical, mental or health impairments of the client/participant entitles the contractor to exclude the client/participant from participation in an event or a part of the event (e.g. physical activities) or to end the session. The exclusion of clients/participants of events or parts of events (e.g. physical activities) due to physical, mental or other health impairments, which the contractor determines, is made after careful examination and consideration of damage and benefits for the client/participant according to general human discretion and does not discriminate against the client/participant.

10. Liability

A guarantee of success on the achievement of the defined goals or the desired success cannot be given by the contractor. The contractor is not responsible for the achievement of any particular success. For the extent of the achieved success the client/participant is responsible at all times.

Liability claims based on the incorrect assessment of the physical, mental and other health performance of the client/participant is inadmissible. All liability claims of the client/participant for damages are inadmissible.

10.4 The contractor shall not be liable for any loss or damage to any items brought in, unless the loss or damage to these items is due to gross negligence or willful misconduct by the contractor.
