Section 1 Scope

 

These General Terms and Conditions apply to the conclusion of agreements of the modules for the EFA European Fashion Academy UG.

 

Section 2 Term, Termination, Cancellation, Form of Instruction

 

The European Fashion Academy Diploma consists of 8 individual modules, which are designed in detail and in a construction-based way. The program contents and their goals can be found on our website. Each module has a defined a duration of approx. 2 months and ends automatically with the expiry of time. The start of the course is the date indicated on the website. The date of the first module may be postponed by one month, i.e. start 07.04.2020 instead of 06.04.2020. The following modules will then be automatically moved by one month, as they are based on each other. The participants will be informed by the European Fashion Academy about the start of the first module at least 2 weeks before the start of the booked individual course in writing – by email – about the final start. The course agreement for a single booked module is non-cancellable and also non-refundable during the term. This also applies to the conclusion of a contract of 8 modules= one year of training. The European Fashion Academy will provide a participant's credit to take any course. The credit note does not expire.

 

The right to extraordinary termination remains unaffected (Section 626 of the German Civil Code). Such extraordinary termination must be made in writing within two weeks of the knowledge or occurrence of the important reason. If, for reasons beyond its control, in particular in cases of force majeure, it is impossible for the European Fashion Academy to provide the service in accordance with the contract for a period of up to three months, this does not give the participant the right to terminate the contract, but he is not entitled to payment of remuneration by the participant for the period of impossibility. The other legal rights of the participant remain unaffected. The European Fashion Academy reserves the right to postpone the individual course to the next start date due to insufficient number of participants. The participant will be informed in writing of the postponement no later than 2 weeks before the start of the booked individual course. The participant is then automatically registered for the corresponding next module. A claim for damages by the participant in the event of such a postponement is excluded.

 

If the participant has previously made rebookings on the relevant individual course or module, the right of withdrawal is excluded. If the participant does not exercise his right of withdrawal, participation in the follow-up courses already booked will be postponed accordingly. The training takes place exclusively in the virtual classroom "Virtual classroom" means an online teaching in real time. The provision of the technical entry requirements for participation in the form of teaching "virtual classroom" and "WBT" (in particular) Internet and accessable medium to the Internet) is the responsibility of the participant and should in any case be checked for functional activity before the beginning of the lesson. The Virtual Classroom is open about 15min before the start of the lesson, so that all participants can dial in easily and the lessons can start on time. The European Fashion Academy does not pay for any delays or dial-in problems of the participants and the course fees will not be refunded. Each participant is responsible for being in the virtual classroom on time. Delays of more than 15 minutes will not be accepted and participants will be eliminated from the Virtual Classroom for each day.
