General Terms and Conditions of OSRAM GmbH for Seminars at the DS Light Academy (as of 01.07.2018)
The OSRAM DS Light Academy of OSRAM GmbH, Marcel-Breuer-Straße 6, 80807 Munich ("DS Light Academy") provides open seminars and seminar-like events such as theme days, for participants exclusively to the following terms and conditions ("Terms").
Conflicting, deviating or supplementary general terms and conditions of the participant become only part of the contract if and only insofar as we have expressly agreed to their validity. For individual agreements made in individual cases, the written contract or our written confirmation shall prevail.
The binding registration takes place exclusively via the Internet under the registration platform www.osram.com/ds-light-academy.
When registering via the Internet, the participant receives an automatically generated receipt confirmation message to the email address stored at the time of registration. This is subject to system errors and the provisions of Section 7 as confirmation of registration. The number of participants is limited. For further registrations we try to offer an alternative date. However, there is no legal claim. In about 2 weeks before the event, the participant will receive an e-mail with further information and the required details regarding the course of the event.
Remote data transmission, computer printouts and electronically transmitted registration confirmations are also valid without a signature.
Refusal of registration: DS Light Academy is entitled to refuse the registration for an event without giving reasons.

Invoices of the DS Light Academy are due for payment without deductions prior to the beginning of the event and no later than 14 calendar days after the invoice date. If the participant does not pay within 14 calendar days of the invoice date, he will be in default without warning.
The participant is entitled to offsetting only with undisputed, legally established or decision-ready counterclaims.
6. Resignation by participants
If participation is not required, an immediate written deregistration is required. If you cancel at least ten calendar days before the beginning of the event (entrance to the DS Light Academy), the cancellation is free of charge. For cancellations received by the DS Light Academy up to five business days before the start of the event, we charge a cancellation fee of 50% of the seminar price per participant. In case of later cancellations, exclusion of the seminar (see section 8) or non-participation, the full amount of the invoice must be paid. The participant can name a suitable replacement participant free of charge. A partial / daily withdrawal from an event as well as partial / daily replacement participation is not possible.
7. Subject to change, cancellation by the DS Light Academy
Minor deviations with regard to place, date, content and trainer are reserved, as well as adjustments to the current state of technology and science.
We reserve the right for important reason such as force majeure, illness or prevention of the trainer / lecturer to use a replacement coach or to postpone the event to a replacement date. If no reasonable replacement date can be found, we reserve the right to cancel the event for a refund of the seminar fee. In the case of cancellation for cause and in cases of necessary changes, a notification will be made as soon as possible.
If a minimum number of participants is not reached, we reserve the right to postpone the event to an alternative date or to cancel it until 10 calendar days before the scheduled date of the event. In this case, the participant has the possibility to rebook free of charge and, if this is not possible or not desired, to demand reimbursement of the seminar fee.
Further claims to the DS Light Academy are excluded. This does not apply if we have intent or gross negligence on our part.

Unless otherwise stated in these GTC, including the following provisions, we shall be liable in the event of a breach of contractual and non-contractual obligations in accordance with the relevant statutory provisions. We shall only be liable for compensation for damages or reimbursement of futile expenses caused by the DS Light Academy, its legal representatives or vicarious agents in the case of intent or gross negligence or culpable violation of essential contractual obligations (cardinal obligations). In the latter case, the liability is limited to the foreseeable, contract-typical damage. The limitations of liability do not apply if we have accepted a guarantee for the procurement, for claims under the Product Liability Act and for damages resulting from injury to life, limb or health.
12. Choice of law and jurisdiction
For these terms and conditions and all legal relationships between us and the participant or the applicant applies the law of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of all international and supranational legal systems, in particular the UN Sales Convention (CISG).
If the participant or the applicant is a merchant within the meaning of the German Commercial Code, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising directly or indirectly from the contractual relationship is our place of business in Munich. However, we are also entitled to bring an action at the general place of jurisdiction of the participant or applicant.
For translations of these Terms and Conditions into other languages, the German version is the authoritative one. Place of fulfillment is Munich.
13. Quality assurance
For quality assurance purposes, participants may receive an evaluation form to complete, depending on the seminar. The completion of the form is voluntary on the part of the participant. The forms are computer-supported evaluated and serve exclusively for quality assurance of the event.
Consumer revocation instruction
You can cancel your contract within 14 days without giving reasons in writing (eg letter, e-mail). The period begins after receipt of this instruction in writing, but not before conclusion of the contract and not before fulfillment of our duties to inform under Article 246 § 2 in conjunction with § 1 paragraph 1 and 2 EGBGB and not before fulfilling our obligations in accordance with §312g paragraph 1 sentence 1 BGB in conjunction with Article 246 § 3 EGBGB. To maintain the cancellation period, the timely dispatch of the revocation is sufficient. The revocation must be sent to:
DS Light Academy
85748 Garching near Munich
or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Consequences of Withdrawal
In the case of an effective cancellation, the mutually received benefits and any benefits (e.g. interest) surrendered. If you are unable to return or surrender to us the received service or uses (e.g. benefits of use) or cannot return them in part or only in a deteriorated condition, you must compensate us in this respect. This may mean that you still have to fulfill the contractual payment obligations for the period until the cancellation. Obligations to reimburse payments must be fulfilled within 30 days. The period begins for you with the dispatch of your revocation, for us with it's receipt.
Your right of revocation expires prematurely, if the contract is completely fulfilled by both parties at your express request, before you have exercised your right of revocation.
