General Conditions

§ 1 Scope of application

These General Terms and Conditions shall apply to all consultations, services, treatments, seminars and events that take place between the company Stephan Beck - sb competence, hereinafter referred to as "sbc", acting under the name "Stephan Beck - sb competence", and its clients and seminar participants, hereinafter referred to as "clients".

The provision of any service by sbc is based exclusively on these General Terms and Conditions, which the clients accept with their booking. Counter-confirmations of a client with reference to his own terms and conditions require the prior written consent of sbc in order to be valid.


§ 2 Registration / Order / Conclusion of Contract

Registration for seminars and events can be made by telephone or in writing. The registration / order is binding. The contract is concluded with the order confirmation by sbc, which the client can object to within 14 calendar days of receipt, provided that the provision of services has not yet begun.


§ 3 Cancellation / rebooking

The cancellation or rebooking of a seminar or event participation is possible free of charge up to 4 weeks before the start of the service provision. In the period from 27 days to 8 days before the beginning of the service provision a cancellation fee of 25% of the price of the service is charged; within 7 days the cancellation fee is 50% of the service price. In case of unannounced absence from the booked service, 100% of the service price is to be borne by the client.


§ 4 Payment modalities

After booking a seminar or event, participants will receive a booking confirmation and an invoice. The invoice amount is due and payable within 7 days of the invoice date.


§ 5 Subject to alteration / Cancellation by sbc

The nature and scope of the services provided by sbc are set out in the respective detailed descriptions. sbc reserves the right to make changes in the course or content of the services if these lead to an improvement in the service or become necessary for unforeseeable reasons.

The seminars offered by sbc are guaranteed to be carried out. There is no minimum number of participants. In case of cancellation of a service by sbc, e.g. due to unforeseeable circumstances or force majeure, the clients have a claim to rebooking or optionally to immediate reimbursement of 100% of the payments already made for the cancelled service. Further claims are excluded.


§ 6 Liability / Exclusion of liability

sbc and its clients mutually exclude all liability claims, except those resulting from damages caused by gross negligence or wilful misconduct.


§ 7 Treatments

With the hypnosis and energy treatments offered by sbc, sbc exercises a trade to activate the clients' self-healing powers. In accordance with the judgment of the German Federal Constitutional Court - 1 BvR 784/03 - of 2 March 2004, sbc expressly points out that these treatments are in no way a substitute for medical treatment.


§ 8 Declaration of sectarian freedom

sbc, Stephan Beck and all its employees hereby declare bindingly that they do not belong to any religious community, political group or sect or disseminate their ideas.


§ 9 Severability clause / place of jurisdiction

Should a provision of these General Terms and Conditions be or become invalid, the client and sbc agree that this provision shall be replaced by a valid provision that comes as close as possible to the content of the invalid provision. The invalidity of any provision of these General Terms and Conditions shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. Swiss law shall apply. Place of jurisdiction is Nyon (Switzerland).
