General Terms and Conditions
Version: 1st August 2018
1) Area of validity
The business relationship between HOMECOOKINGVIENNA and the class participants is governed exclusively by the General Terms and Conditions as specified here and in their current version.
Registration can be made either by telephone at: +43 (677) 6199 7137 or by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org until the maximum number of participants has been reached. The deadline for registration is five (5) days before the start of an event and must be made either in person, by telephone, by e-mail, or by registering for a class online. Registration is final. After registering, the participant will receive a confirmation of registration. Only then does the contract come into effect.
3) Programme changes/cancellation
For a class to take place, a minimum number of participants is required, which may vary depending on the type of class. If a class is cancelled for organisational reasons (e.g. illness of the instructor or failure to reach the minimum number of participants) and the replacement dates are not claimed, course fees already paid will be refunded in full.
4) Terms of payment
For online registration, the total amount is due upon booking. The courses are paid online by bank transfer, credit card, or via PayPal. If vouchers are redeemed, the original voucher must be presented at the cooking class.
5) Cancellation policy
Cancellations can be made up to five working days before the class is scheduled to begin. The cancellation fee is 25%. Unfortunately, we cannot accept cancellations after this date. Course participation is not bound to a specific person and replacement participants can be designated to take part in the course in the event of illness, etc.
