You have the opportunity to cancel your application till the day of the event in written form. Your cancellation will be confirmed in written form by the haven language school.

Is the cancellation carried out within 45 days before the beginning of the course, an administrative charge of € 10,00 accrues. Does the cancellation only amount to 30 days, an administrative fee of € 15,00 is charged. A cancellation at a subsequent date is possible on the following terms:

You have the opportunity to declare a participant who replaces you up to 24 hours before the beginning of the course. Such a change of reservation will be undertaken without the reckoning of additional charges.

If you do not participate in the course without either having made a letter of refusal or a cancellation within a particular timeframe or the registration of a participant who replaces you has taken place, the payment of the course fee is due in full.

If you stay away from lessons or if you do not participate in the lessons anymore at all, there is no claim for refund of the course fee, not even partially. Should a continuation of the booked course verifiably not be possible for reasons of health, a time credit can be given for the remaining hours of lessons on presentation of a medical report. Missed lessons can be fetched at a later course within 12 months.

IV. One-to-one tuition, lessons as a pair

VI. Alteration of course, cancellation, refusal respectively a failure of teaching units

In specific cases courses or individual lessons can be cancelled. Such a refusal can take place in some circumstances at a poor attendance or absence due to illness of a teacher, act of nature beyond control or a similar reason. In such a case the haven language school will try to inform you as soon as possible about the necessary change or cancellation. If feasible, the lessons will be caught up. In the event of poor attendance the haven language school endeavours to offer another solution in consultation with the participants.

For example, such a solution could be found in the form of an altered course length, course fee or something similar. However, there is no legal entitlement for a solution of that kind for both parties.  Unless the lessons can fetched later or no deviant solution can be found , no course fee will be charged respectively already made payments will be refunded. Ulterior claims are excluded.
