Terms of Participation

The number of participants in our seminars is sometimes limited. We therefore kindly request that you register in writing with the ZDS as soon as possible. Registration is binding as soon as it is confirmed by ZDS in writing.

Fees for participation
Fees in full are due upon receipt of invoice. Money transfers to the ZDS are to be made free of charge for ZDS. Please send money only after having been invoiced. Payment should be made prior to the commencement date, latest on the day of arrival at ZDS. Participation only after receipt of payment. Credit-cards (VISA/Euro-/MasterCard/Diners Club/American Express Card) are accepted. If two or more participants are registered by the same company, there is a deduction of 5% from the second participants on.

Travel / Accommodation
Travel information and directions will be sent out with the registration confirmation. Costs incurred for possible overnight accommodations are not included in the seminar fee. If requested we will be glad to help with hotel reservations.

ZDS reserves the right to change speakers and/or shift or change the programme schedule. The number of participants is limited, and in case of overbooking, ZDS will give information on a repeat seminar as soon as possible. If there is insufficient participation, ZDS reserves the right to cancel or postpone a seminar. ZDS can not guarantee for the attendance of competitors at demonstration events held outside its premises. If presentations are given in another language than German, the presentation’s title will be listed in the programme in the respective language. If conference proceedings are distributed, they will be written in the language in which they were presented.

Please understand that we have to charge 10% of the seminar fee for cancellations up to two weeks and 50% for cancellations up to one week prior to the seminar for administrative expenses. Later cancellations will be invoiced with 100% of the seminar fee. We will certainly accept a substitute participant without additional costs.
If the event is cancelled by the organizer, the fee will be reimbursed totally.

In the event that seminars are cancelled for reasons for which ZDS is responsible, reimbursement is limited to refunding already paid seminar fees. Any further claims are excluded.

Protection of Personal Data
In compliance with the stipulations of the German Federal Law on Protection of Personal Data we hereby inform you that addresses of interested persons and seminar participants will be electronically stored with the intention to forward programmes and seminar information of ZDS.
