3.3   The declaration of participation is binding and can only be declared invalid for seminar events after consultation with the organizer up to 21 days before the start of the seminar.

The agreed number of hours for the canceled appointment will be invoiced.

3.5   The organizer reserves the right to cancel or terminate the event up to 10 days before the start of the event after exhausting all possibilities if this is not reasonable because the booking volume for this event is so low that the costs incurred in relation to this event , would mean exceeding the economic victim limit. The implementation of a seminar is bound to a minimum number of participants. If the minimum number of participants is not reached, we reserve the right to cancel the seminar. Further claims are excluded unless they are based on intent or gross negligence on the part of DevelopMind.

3.6   However, the organizer only has the right to withdraw if he can prove the circumstances leading to the withdrawal and has made a comparable alternative offer to the participant. The participation fee paid for the seminar will be refunded immediately.

The organizer is only liable for slight negligence in accordance with the provisions of the Product Liability Act, for injury to life, limb or health or for breach of essential contractual obligations. However, the claim for damages for the slightly negligent breach of essential contractual obligations is limited to the foreseeable damage typical for the contract, insofar as there is no liability for injury to life, limb or health. The organizer is liable to the same extent for the fault of vicarious agents and representatives.

8.2   The regulation of the above paragraph (8.1) extends to compensation for damages in addition to the service, compensation for damages instead of the service and the claim for compensation for wasted expenses, regardless of the legal reason, including liability for defects, delay or impossibility.
