§ 1 Scope and Contractual Basis
(1) These General Terms and Conditions – hereinafter also referred to as GTC – apply to any and all agreements concluded between you as a Customer and our company as a supplier – also referred to as act.³ GmbH – via our aforementioned website or in RUNBASE, including but not limited to such agreements concerning the use of RUNBASE services, which comprises in particular the booking of courses – hereinafter also jointly referred to as Services.

Any and all contractual arrangements agreed between you and our company in connection with such an agreement initially arise in particular from our booking forms or confirmations – also referred to as Confirmation – and from these General Terms and Conditions.

The relevant version shall always be the GTC version valid at the time of concluding the agreement.

We provide services exclusively on the following terms and conditions, which form the basis of any and all agreements concluded with us.

Where the customer is an entrepreneur within the meaning of the following paragraph 2, any terms of the customer deviating from or contrary to the following provisions shall not apply. In this case, the following terms and conditions shall apply exclusively even if we render the service without booking while being fully aware of such terms and conditions of the customer which are contrary to or deviate from the following GTC. In such a case, any deviations from these terms and conditions, any supplementary agreements and / or side agreements shall be subject to the explicit confirmation by us.

(2) Insofar as consumers are mentioned in these Terms and Conditions, such consumers are natural persons according to the statutory provisions (§ 13 BGB (German Civil Code)), for whom the purpose of such booking cannot be associated with any commercial, independent or freelance activity. According to the applicable statutory provisions (§ 14 BGB (German Civil Code)), entrepreneurs are natural or legal persons or partnerships with legal personality, exercising their commercial or independent professional activity when concluding a legal transaction. Customers within the meaning of these terms and conditions are consumers as well as entrepreneurs.

(3) Where working days are specified as deadlines, this includes any and all days of the week, Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays at our headquarters excluded.

(4) These terms and conditions also apply to any and all future business transacted between the customer and our company insofar as this refers to related legal transactions.

§ 2 Storage Capability and Viewing the Wording of the Agreement
(1) You can always view, save or print our GTC on our website www.runbase.berlin/gtc.

(2) For safety reasons, your specific booking data cannot be retrieved from the Internet. We therefore recommend that you print out any booking effected or save such booking in your system.

The contract provisions in detail will also result from our booking confirmation as a binding declaration of acceptance.

§ 3 Contracting Partners and Conclusion of the Agreement
(1) Your contracting partner is act.³ GmbH.

(2) The presentation of the offers published on our website do not constitute a binding offer, a basis on which to conclude an agreement, but a non-binding invitation to you, to book it on the website. Such presentations and advertisings are subject to change, as long as they do not become the content of a binding contractual agreement. This means that, in the event of unavailability, there is no obligation on our part to perform.

Before sending your booking, you can check and correct the data provided by you. Sending your booking by clicking on the “Submit Booking” button is deemed a binding contractual statement. The receipt of the booking will be confirmed immediately after the technically flawless receipt of your booking.

The confirmation of the booking does not constitute the acceptance of your order, but is merely meant to inform you of the fact that your booking has been received.

A binding agreement shall not be deemed concluded until we accept your booking – also known as booking confirmation.

Such acceptance by us can be made by any of the following circumstances:

a) We accept your booking with a separate order confirmation or

b) we ask you for payment where payment in advance is required

Please note that the service will not be rendered until the full amount is credited to our account in cases where payment in advance is required. Where your payment is not received within 5 working days prior to the date booked, we will cancel any related booking confirmation sent by us at this point.

§ 4 Prices
The prices quoted in the offer at the time of booking shall apply for any and all bookings. The indicated prices are the total prices, which means they include the German value added tax valid at that time as well as any other price components.

Any other prices, which may be shown on sites loaded from caching (browser cache, proxies, etc.) may not be current and are therefore invalid.

§ 5 Payment
(1) We generally offer the following payment methods:

a)Payment in advance by transfer to
Berliner Volksbank
Account holder: act.³ GmbH
IBAN: DE98 1009 0000 2600 5220 03

You transfer the invoice amount to our account in advance.
Where payment in advance is required, we expect your payment not later than 5 working days before the date booked (the decisive factor being the date when such payment is credited to our account) after your binding booking. Where no payment is received within this period, your booking will be canceled without replacement.

Credit card, Mastercard, VISA only
The invoice amount will be debited by your credit card company on the day of booking. We only accept the aforementioned credit cards.

c) On-Site Payment
In addition to cash payment, we also offer EC-cash payment with PIN as well as payment by credit card (MasterCard, VISA). Please ensure that the price does not exceed your personal card limit. For more information please contact your principal bank.

We reserve the right to refuse the payment method chosen by the customer, in individual cases.

§ 6 Booking Dates and Performance Times
(1) We refer to booking dates and performance times on the individual product site or in a separate order confirmation we will send you.

(2) The possibility of using or the performance obligation will not apply if we are not responsible for the non-availability of the location or the performance booked. In case of non-availability, we will inform you thereof forthwith and immediately refund any payment, which may have been effected in advance.

(3) The statutory right of the customer to damages instead of performance remains unaffected hereof.

(4) Where the customer is in default of acceptance or where it culpably violates any other obligations to cooperate, we are entitled to demand compensation for the damage incurred thereby, which also includes any additional expenses. Further claims will remain unaffected thereof and reserved. The customer, in turn, has the right to evidence that a loss in the amount required has not been caused at all, or that such loss was significantly lower than the amount claimed.

§ 7 Right of Revocation
(1) The following is an instruction about the conditions and consequences of the legal right of revocation valid for services provided to consumers.
