General Terms and Conditions

The application is legally binding. With it, you accept the general terms and conditions, as well as the house rules of the respective course locations. The application cannot be transferred. The claim to a course seat only sets in with the settlement of the course bill ahead of the course start. Applications will be only processed if they are complete and in order of the arrival of their financial settlement. In the case that the maximum number of attendants is reached, the participation cannot be claimed. Please contact us beforehand about fully booked courses. After the arrival of your course fee, we will send you an electronic or postal confirmation of participation.
Terms of Payment and Participation
The course fee is to be settled cashless (via bank transfer or debit withdrawal), postally or in cash during the office hours. In case of a bank transfer, we ask you to include the keyword ”Sommerakademie“ as well as the course title. After a prior agreement, a payment in two instalments can be arranged. The claim for a course seat becomes effective, when 50% of the course fee has been paid and a written direct debit authorisation about the remaining 50% has been granted to riesa efau. Participation can only be accepted for one course each (exception: successive one-week offers) and for its total duration. We ask for your understanding, that a minimum number of applications have to be reached for each course, as well as that certain maximum numbers of attendants cannot be exceeded.

The association riesa efau. Kultur Forum Dresden is allowed to cancel or interrupt a course in case of lacking participation or force majeure.
