Terms and Conditions for Workshops
§1 Scope of Application; Contract Language
1.1 These terms and conditions (T&C) apply to the workshops offered through our website “NEXT MANNHEIM” by mg: mannheimer gründungszentren GmbH, Julius-Hatry-Straße 1, 68163 Mannheim (hereinafter referred to as “we”).
§2 Scope of Our Services, Customer’s Own Responsibility, Booking
2.1 We offer workshops based on a service contract according to § 611 of the German Civil Code (BGB). The respective workshop presenters are specifically commissioned by us and are not in a direct contractual relationship with you. We cannot provide a warranty or guarantee for achieving defined goals or the success you desire.
2.2 Our advice or that of our presenters does not include medical, medical, psychiatric, psychological, or psychotherapeutic treatment or counseling that replaces such treatment and is therefore not suitable for individuals in need of such treatment or support. You acknowledge that all actions taken during our collaboration are solely within your own responsibility.
§3 Formation of the Contract
3.1 The presentation of products and offers on our offers and booking website does not constitute a legally binding offer but an invitation to book (invitatio ad offerendum).
3.2 By clicking the “Book with Payment Obligation” button in the final step of the ordering process, you make a binding offer to book the workshops displayed in the order overview. Immediately after submitting your order, you will receive a confirmation of your booking, which establishes a contract between you and us. Please regularly check the spam folder of your email inbox.
§4 Technical Steps to Conclusion of the Contract and Correction of Input Errors
During the booking process, you first select the desired workshop for the preferred date and quantity. After this selection, you will be asked to provide your name, contact details, and industry. After entering this information and clicking “Confirm,” the desired service will be added to your shopping cart, and you will be redirected to it. You can cancel the booking process by clicking the “X” next to the workshop title. Otherwise, by clicking the “Proceed to Checkout” button, you will proceed to a page where you can enter additional information and select the payment method. You must confirm that you are forfeiting any right of withdrawal (see §7) and then click “Order with Payment Obligation” to make your registration binding. Afterward, you will be guided through the payment process. If you wish to cancel the booking process entirely, you can simply close your browser window. Otherwise, by clicking the “Order with Payment Obligation” button, your declaration becomes binding in accordance with §3.2 of these T&C.
§5 Storage of the Contract Text
The contract terms, including information about the booked services, these General Terms and Conditions, and the cancellation policy, will be sent to you by email upon acceptance of the contract offer. We do not store the contract terms.
§6 Cancellation of the Workshop; Cancellation by Participants
6.1 We reserve the right to cancel the workshop if the minimum number of participants required for its execution is not met. In case of workshop cancellation by us, we will refund the fee paid by you. You have no further claims if there is no fault on our part for the cancellation.
6.2 You can cancel your booking free of charge up to 5 working days before the start of the workshop. After that, you must pay the full amount unless you had a right of withdrawal (see §7). In that case, statutory regulations apply.
§7 Right of Withdrawal for Workshop Booking
If you enter into a contract with us as a consumer (§ 13 BGB), you have the right to withdraw from the booking of a workshop in accordance with the following instruction. A consumer is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor self-employed.
When booking the workshop, you expressly agreed that we may begin the execution of the contract before the expiry of the withdrawal period and confirmed your awareness that, by giving this consent, you lose your right of withdrawal when the execution of the contract begins.

Our liability, regardless of the legal basis, is exclusively subject to the following provisions.
8.1 We are only liable for willful intent and gross negligence. In cases of slight negligence, we are only liable for the breach of a fundamental contractual obligation, the fulfillment of which is essential for the proper execution of the contract and on which you regularly rely (cardinal duty). We are only liable for foreseeable damages that are typical for such contracts. This also applies to lost profits and missed savings. Liability for other remote consequential damages is excluded.
8.2 The limitation of our liability does not apply in cases of injury to life, body, and/or health and in cases of liability under the Product Liability Act.
8.3 We are not liable for events of force majeure that make the performance of the contract impossible or substantially impede or temporarily hinder its proper execution. Force majeure includes all circumstances that are beyond the control and influence of the parties to the contract, such as acts of terrorism, embargoes, seizures, natural disasters, strikes, government decisions, or other serious and unforeseeable circumstances that are not the fault of the parties. An event is only considered force majeure if it occurs after the conclusion of the contract.
8.4 We are not liable for disruptions and quality losses in data transmission over the internet that are not our responsibility and that impede or prevent the use of the contractual services.
8.5 To the extent that our liability is excluded or limited, this also applies to the liability of our employees, other staff, representatives, and agents.
§9 Contract Language
The contract language is German. All communication between the parties to the contract will be conducted in the German language.
§10 Applicable Law; Mandatory Consumer Protection Provisions
The contracts concluded between us and customers on the basis of these T&C are subject to German law, excluding the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. Mandatory consumer protection provisions of the law of the country in which a consumer, who is a party to the contract, has their habitual residence, remain unaffected. A consumer is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor self-employed.
§11 Jurisdiction, Online Dispute Resolution, Consumer Dispute Resolution
11.1 If the customer is a merchant, a legal entity under public law, or a special fund under public law, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes is our registered office (currently Mannheim, Germany). The same applies if the customer has no general place of jurisdiction in Germany or if their place of residence or habitual abode is not known at the time of filing the lawsuit.
11.2 The European Commission provides an online platform for dispute resolution (ODR) for consumers, which can be found at: [link to ODR platform]. Our email address is email@example.com.
11.3 We are not obliged to participate in a dispute resolution procedure before a consumer arbitration board and generally not willing to do so.
§12 Severability Clause
If individual provisions of these T&C are or become invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part, or if there are gaps in the provisions, the validity of the remaining provisions shall remain unaffected. This also applies in the event that the regulations prove to be incomplete.
