2 Registration/registration confirmation
The participant can register via internet, letter, fax or e-mail. The receipt of the registration will be confirmed by e-mail. However, this confirmation of receipt e-mail does not yet lead to the conclusion of the seminar contract and to a binding registration. Only after HOFBAUER OPTIK has checked the registration and confirmed by e-mail that the participant's registration is binding, the seminar contract between the participant and HOFBAUER OPTIK will be concluded. The seminar contract is subject to the resolutory condition that the minimum number of participants specified in the seminar catalog is reached.
The participant will be informed accordingly no later than 7 working days before the event date. The participant should book his/her travel and accommodation only after receiving this confirmation.
Cancellation of participation in an event by the participant is possible for a processing fee of 50,- € up to two weeks before the respective start of the event via internet, letter, fax or e-mail. In the event of cancellation up to one week before the start of the event, half of the participation fee will be due, thereafter the full participation fee will be due, unless a replacement participant from the same company is provided. Rebookings will be treated like cancellations.
4 Cancellation of events
If the event cannot be held due to force majeure or other organizational or economic reasons (e.g. due to illness of the speaker without a replacement speaker being available), HOFBAUER OPTIK is entitled to cancel the event. The participants will be informed immediately. In this case, the event fee will be refunded. Any further claims, in particular the reimbursement of travel and accommodation costs as well as loss of work, are excluded. Liability according to clause 8 remains unaffected by this.
5 Changes in the course of the event
HOFBAUER OPTIK reserves the right to replace announced speakers with others and to change the course of the events or to replace, redesign or cancel individual lectures of an event, provided this does not affect the overall character of the event.
