General Terms and Conditions with Customer Information

Terms and conditions for booking training courses

1. Any training courses organised by the bikablo® akademie itself are booked, paid for and cancelled, as applicable, online via our ticketing partner XingEvents/amiando (Xing AG). Payment methods are shown at the appropriate point in the payment process.

2. Once you have registered, you will receive a digital confirmation of your registration as well as an invoice from XingEvents/amiando (Xing AG). The invoice must be paid in advance in order to attend the course.

3. Cancellations are also processed directly via XingEvents/amiando. Cancellations made 30 days or more prior to the training course incur a charge of 10% of the training course fee. For cancellations made less than 30 days prior to the event the training course fee must be paid in full. You may send a replacement participant. Please note that any cancellation fees are handled directly by XingEvents/amiando.

4. We reserve the right to cancel the training course, even at short notice. In the event of such a cancellation, you will be immediately refunded any amounts already paid.

5. For bikablo® akademie training products named on this website, but offered by other providers, the full terms and conditions and booking protocols for those providers apply.

6. If you are unable to book using XingEvents/amiando, you can book our training courses via email (akademie@bikablo.com) and pay through a direct invoice. Unfortunately we have to charge a processing fee of EUR 120 per booking. Any contents specified in these Terms and Conditions, which do not correspond to the Xing/amiando booking process, also apply for direct bookings via email.

7. All prices are excluding VAT.
