Arrival at a course physically held in our spaces

The participant is obliged to arrive at the beginning of the course in time and well in advance so that the attendance is completed smoothly and it is possible to start on time. A suitable time may be 15 minutes before the start. If the participant is late, he is obliged to inform us by phone and tell us the estimated time of arrival or arrival. However, even in such a case, that should never exceed 10 minutes after the start for shorter lessons and 30 minutes after the start for full-day seminars.

The participant is also obliged to bring with him all other requisites for entering the course, such as any remaining payment in full or any other materials and documents, in case they were required to enter the specific course.

Should the participant arrive to the course without a sufficient amount of cash to completely pay the rest of the course, he won’t be admitted to the event and the deposit he paid forfeits as a cencellation fee.

Cancellation of participation before the event
The deposit you’re paying for place reservation is non-refundable and acts as a pledge to come to the event. This deposit especially covers cases where you can’t come due to you getting sick, due to unforseen time unavailability, travel complications and other reasons of you not coming to a course or an event, including situations such as your quarantine.

When a participant is cancelling participation at an event a cancellation fee is being applied. The amount is the same as the amount of the deposit paid. The deposit paid is never refunded no matter the reasons for the cancellation. Forfeiture of the deposit is not a reason to provide discounts for other events or other dates of the same event, nor is it possible to transfer the deposit to them. This deposit especially covers cases where you can’t come due to you getting sick, due to unforseen time unavailability, travel complications and other reasons of you not coming to a course or an event, including situations such as your quarantine.

Cancellation of the participation during the event

When the participation is interrupted during the event on the part of the participant, the payment is not refunded. The stands also for ongoing courses and trainings comprised of multiple seminars.

Should a participant miss a class of an ongoing course, a part of an event or an installment of a series, he cannot come make up for them – nor in the same course, nor in another parallel course, nor in another run of the same course.

Cancellation of participation at an individual session

When a participant is cancelling participation at an individual session less than a week before the date of the session, the participant is bound to pay its full price or send someone else to attend the session instead of himself. This hold whatever the reasons for the cancellation might be.

Violating an agreement from the participant’s side

In case an agreement if a part of the conditions to participate at an event or in case such agreement has been made individually with the participant (i.e. payment until a set date, participation at the whole training etc.) and the participant doesn’t fulfill or breaks the agreement, the participant’s right to attend the rest of the event (that means also the remaining installments of a multi-part event etc.) forfeits, latest to the moment of not-fulfiiling or breaking the agreement. In case the participants expresses to not fulfill or break the agreement before doing so, the right forefeits already to that moment. At the same time any payments paid to that date are non-refundable and forfeit as cancellation fees. Even in that case any agreements that can still be fullfiled stand (i.e. paying money due etc.). The organiser has the right to use payment which the participant paid in relation to other event to cover unfulfilled agreements with the participant and to not provide the service or item for which the payment was originally made.

Handling fees

For actions beyond the standard smooth course of signing up, payment and participation in the course, the participant may be charged a handling fee. The amount of such a fee depends on the nature of the activity or agreement beyond the ordinary. However, the minimum amount of such a fee is EUR 6.

Exchange rate losses and transfer fees

If a participant transfers an amount denominated in a particular currency in a currency other than the currency in which it was denominated, the participant shall be fully responsible for ensuring that sufficient funds are received in the currency in which the amount was denominated.

If there is a bank fee associated with the transfer, the participant shall always pay the fee themselves (e.g. by setting the fee payment mode to „sender“) and if that is not possible, then they sahll top up the payment by an amount to cover the fee charged on our side.

If we receive either less than that amount or there are fees associated with the transfer on our side that are no longer covered by the participant’s payment, the participant agrees to pay the amount and cover the fees. In this case, the participant again bears the cost of this additional payment.

In the event of an erroneous payment by the participant or any other reason for sending a payment back, the maximum amount sent back shall always be the amount received, less any fees associated with the transfer. For example, if the participant sent 10 Euro, the amount received is 230 CZK and the bank charges for the transfer back are 100 CZK, a maximum of 130 CZK is sent back.
