If the second written reminder is sent, all discounts and reductions that may have been granted to the course participant will be forfeited, so that he/she will owe the regular course fee plus reminder fees and interest on arrears. The proceedings are transferred to a collection agency. As with other course participants, it must be ensured that the full course fee is due from the first day of the course. Various funding agencies will only pay the course fee if the participant has attended at least 80% of the lessons. Otherwise, the participant:in must pay the full cost of the course him/herself and arrange for refinancing if necessary. A complaint about the courses offered by DEUTSCH&MEHR does not entitle the participant to claim back the course fee, except in case of substantial and obvious defects.

6If the maximum number of participants of 15 persons is reached, DEUTSCH&MEHR reserves the right to reject registrations. The date of receipt of the course fee will be used to determine eligibility. The minimum number of participants varies and can be found on the homepage under the respective courses and projects. DEUTSCH&MEHR reserves the right to cancel courses without a minimum number of participants or for organizational reasons, or to change the schedule if the majority of participants agree. Those who have already registered will be informed of a course cancellation prior to the start of the course. Payments made will be refunded in this case. If the minimum number of participants of 6 persons is not reached, the course can still be held if the difference is paid by full-paying participants or the number of hours is reduced accordingly. There is no entitlement to compensation for any costs incurred. Individual lessons are available at any time upon request. The dates for individual lessons are set by the student in consultation with the respective language coach. Any changes in the schedule on the part of the course participant must be announced no later than 3 p.m. on the day before the course. Otherwise, the fee for the individual lesson must be charged.
7Cancellations must always be made in writing. Cancellations between five and two weeks prior to the start of the course will be refunded in full; cancellations within the last two weeks prior to the start of the course will be charged €50 in administration fees. Cancellations received within 72 hours prior to the start of the course, as well as cancellations on the first day of the course or thereafter, will be required to pay the full course fee. In case of irregular attendance or premature termination by the participating person, there is no right to any refund or discount. Cancellation of a private lesson must be made up to 24h before the appointment, otherwise the booked units will be charged.
8DEUTSCH&MEHR is not liable for items brought along, such as clothing, valuables, money or course materials. Any damage caused by a course participant (e.g. to the course premises) must be reimbursed by the party causing the damage. DEUTSCH&MEHR is not liable in this respect.
