General Terms and Conditions

Provisions Concerning Open Seminars, Events, Presentations, and Webinars

Please note that these General Terms and Conditions are a translation of our German General Terms and Conditions (see “AGB”) that we provide as a courtesy to our English-speaking clients and visitors. The business location of the website and domain owner is Germany, and this website is governed by the laws of Germany.

Scope of Application

The following general terms and conditions issued by Martin Limbeck (contractor) are valid for all services relating to open seminars, events, presentations, and webinars agreed to between the contractor and the client. In-house events of any kind (e.g. presentations, training sessions, seminars, coaching sessions) fall under separate general terms and conditions. The online academy membership is subject to the general terms and conditions of the Martin Limbeck Online Academy, which you may consult here.

Service Provision and Copyright

The client recognizes our exclusive copyright to the works we have created (training documents). This also applies to the audio and image recordings relating to the training program. Any reproduction, use, and/or distribution of said works by the client requires our prior written permission.


Payable without deduction within 14 days following receipt of the invoice, in the account indicated on that invoice.

Payment Terms/Set-off/Retention

Unless otherwise specified, the agreed fee is payable after the training has been completed, or, in the case of several training days, after each single training day, upon receipt of the invoice at no charge and without deduction. Should the client cancel an agreed training day, the client will be promptly issued an invoice as an outstanding fee payable immediately by the client upon receipt of that invoice, at no extra charge. This applies equally to a delay on the acceptance of the service on the part of the client.

The client is in default of payment the moment he receives a reminder or, not having received a reminder, 30 days at the latest following the receipt and due date of the invoice. Should the client default on payment, an 8% interest rate above the respective basic interest rate will be payable.

Rights of set-off and retention with regard to due payments are excluded, except in the case of a set-off based on undisputed and legal valid claims.

Cancellations Requested by the Participant/Client

a) Written form
Cancellations on the part of the participant/client must be requested in writing.
b) Open seminars/presentations
For open seminars/presentations, cancellations requested by the participant will result in the following payable participation fees, indicated as a percentage of the agreed total participation fee and divided into the following phases:
up to 42 days before the start of the event at the latest 40 %
between 41 and 28 days before the start of the event 60 %,
between 27 and 14 days before the start of the event 80 %,
13 days or less before the start of the event 100 %

Should a participant be unable to participate in a seminar or presentation, she or he has the right to designate a replacement and must do so in writing. The replacement must confirm in writing that by way of a debt assumption he or she is liable for the payment of the participation fee in full. This, however, does not exempt the participant from the obligation to pay the agreed participation fee. There are no extra costs imposed for the designation of a replacement.

Special Provisions for Webinars

Through the client’s downloading or streaming of a webinar, we are granting the client a non-transferrable license to use the material for non-commercial and strictly personal ends. The client is prohibited from issuing sub-licenses. The client is prohibited from using, copying, or allowing third-party access to the webinar content for commercial purposes. The client is also prohibited from reproducing the webinar in part or in its entirety.

Consequences of Withdrawal

For this reimbursement we will use the same means of payment you used in the original transaction, unless a different option has been explicitly agreed to with you; under no circumstances will you be charged for this reimbursement.
