General Terms and Conditions for orders and bookings
with persolog GmbH

I Scope

1.All offers, deliveries and other services with regard to orders/bookings of goods with us are subject to the following General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter only "Terms and Conditions") in the version valid at the time of the order/booking.

2. Goods within the meaning of these Terms and Conditions are all products, seminars and services that can be purchased/booked with us as part of an order/booking.

3. Our terms and conditions apply exclusively. We do not recognize any conflicting, deviating or supplementary terms and conditions of the contractual partner/customer (hereinafter referred to as "Customer") unless we have expressly agreed to their validity in writing. Our terms and conditions shall also apply if we render our services without reservation in the knowledge of conflicting or deviating terms and conditions of the Customer.

4. Our terms and conditions apply only to companies within the meaning of § 310 I BGB (German Civil Code), as well as legal entities under public law and special funds under public law.

II Conclusion of contract

1.In the case of orders/bookings via our online shop or landing pages, the presentation and advertising of goods in our online shop do not constitute a binding offer to conclude a contract, but merely an invitation to the customer to make a binding offer. If the goods are available, the customer can only make a binding offer to order the goods contained in the shopping basket after registering and successfully setting up a customer account in accordance with section VI of these terms and conditions by sending the order by activating the "order subject to payment" or "register subject to payment" button after going through the online ordering process. The offer can only be submitted if the customer has previously accepted these Terms and Conditions by clicking on the corresponding button and has thereby included them in his offer. We will then send the customer an order/booking confirmation by e-mail. The order/booking confirmation constitutes acceptance of the offer. In the case of seminar bookings, the customer will receive a booking confirmation if seminar places are available. When products are ordered, the content of the contract and the approximate delivery date result from the order confirmation, insofar as delivery is required according to the characteristic of the purchased goods.

2. Outside of orders/bookings in our online shop, enquiries from the customer, verbally or in writing, via telephone, fax or e-mail, constitute a binding offer to conclude a contract. We then create an order/booking confirmation which we send to the customer by e-mail. The order/booking confirmation constitutes acceptance of the offer. In the case of seminar bookings, the customer will receive a booking confirmation if seminar places are available. When ordering products, the content of the contract and the approximate delivery date result from the order confirmation, insofar as delivery is required according to the characteristic of the purchased goods.

3. The obligations contained in the provisions of Section 312i (1) sentence 1 no. 1 to no. 3 and sentence 2 BGB are excluded.

III Delivery of goods

1.Insofar as delivery is required according to the characteristics of the purchased goods, the delivery time stated by us in the order confirmation shall be calculated from the time of the order confirmation.

2. Delivery dates and delivery deadlines are always considered to be approximate. They shall be deemed to have been met if the goods have been dispatched by their expiry.

3. If, after conclusion of the contract, the customer requests changes or additions to the order which make it impossible to meet the delivery date, the delivery date shall be extended in accordance with the changes and additions by a period of time which is reasonable for the implementation of these changes and additions.

4. We shall have a right of retention for further deliveries until all previous deliveries have been paid.

5. If the customer orders several goods within the scope of one order for which different delivery times apply, we shall dispatch the goods (unless otherwise agreed) in a joint delivery. In this case, the delivery time that applies to the goods with the longest delivery time applies to the goods order as a whole.

6. When delivering goods, we are entitled to make partial deliveries to a reasonable extent and to invoice these separately.

7. The risk is transferred to the customer when the goods are handed over to the shipping company. Shipment is always carried out on behalf of the customer.

8. If we are unable to meet binding delivery deadlines for reasons for which we are not responsible (non-availability of the goods), we shall inform the customer of this without delay and at the same time notify the customer of the expected new delivery deadline. If the goods are also not available within the new delivery period, we shall be entitled to withdraw from the contract in whole or in part; we shall reimburse the customer immediately for any consideration already paid by the customer. A case of non-availability of the goods in this sense shall be deemed to be in particular the non-timely self-delivery by suppliers if we have concluded a congruent hedging transaction, neither we nor our suppliers are at fault or we are not obliged to procure in the individual case.

IV Seminars, digital learning products

1.Seminars are offered either as open group seminars or as in-house seminars (each as online or face-to-face seminars) which are individually adapted to the customer's wishes/oriented towards the customer's requirements and take place in closed groups. Open seminars and in-house seminars take place as face-to-face seminars or as online seminars transmitted by video with the software "Zoom" or a comparable tool.

2. Seminars as well as further education and training courses are also offered digitally within the framework of e-learning programmes (hereinafter only "digital seminars"), which the customer or participant can start and carry out at any time via the "persolog Acad-emy”.

3. The target group and the content of the individual seminars, as well as the respective services provided within the framework of these, can be found in the respective seminar or programme description. Accompanying seminar documents are issued to the customer or participant in paper form or sent in electronic form if this is expressly stated in the respective seminar description. If seminar documents are issued or sent, this is usually done before or at the beginning of the seminar, in individual cases also during or at the end of the seminar.

4. When participating in an online seminar, the customer or participant will receive further information by e-mail after paying the seminar price, but no later than the day before the appointment. The e-mail will include technical requirements for hardware and software, the necessary instructions for using "Zoom" or a comparable tool, the planned time of the online seminar and the access code that enables the customer or participant to access the online seminar on an internet-enabled device (PC, laptop, smartphone, tablet) to track in real time. To do this, the customer or participant must first download the "Zoom app" or the "Zoom program" or a comparable tool. It is not necessary for the customer or participant to create a Zoom account; it is sufficient to install the software on their end device. The code is intended exclusively for the customer or participant and may not be passed on. It only entitles the customer or participant to receive the transmission once. It is also not permitted for third parties to take part in the transmission together with the customer or participant. In the event of violations, the right to participate in the transmission shall expire; however, the payment obligation shall remain in effect. The same applies to recordings in sound and/or image and storage on data carriers. If the transmission of the online seminar is not or not properly possible due to in-sufficient technical requirements or incorrect operation of the customer or participant, there is also no claim for reimbursement or renewed attendance of the next online seminar on the same topic.

5. Any necessary travel to and from seminars must be organised by the client at his own expense.

6. Catering for customers or participants during breaks in the seminar (e.g. snacks, drinks) are included in the seminar price if this is expressly stated in the seminar description.

7. If and insofar as this is expressly stated in the seminar description, the customer or participant will receive a certificate of participation after taking part in the seminar. The certificate of participation shall be provided to the customer or participant at the end of the seminar either electronically or in paper form, sent in electronic form within 7 working days to the e-mail address provided by the customer or participant during the booking process or made available as a download.

8. We reserve the right to unilaterally revoke the confirmation of the booking of a seminar (booking confirmation) and to cancel or reschedule the seminar. In this case, the customer or participant can attend the new or another date/seminar or cancel the booking. In the latter case, the seminar price already paid will be refunded to the client. Further claims are excluded.

9. We are entitled to hold our face-to-face seminars as online seminars if the holding of face-to-face seminars is restricted or prohibited by official orders. In this case, the custom-er has the exclusive choice between rebooking the face-to-face seminar for a later date or participating in the online seminar that replaces the face-to-face seminar. The customer does not have the right to cancel the seminar free of charge. The customer will be informed about the change from the face-to-face seminar to the online seminar be-fore the booked date. The decision to participate in the online seminar is deemed to have been made if the customer does not request a rebooking by e-mail 48 hours be-fore the start of the online seminar

9. A rebooking of the seminar is possible free of charge, with the exception of digital seminars, if it is made up to 30 days before the start of the seminar. In the case of a re-booking to another date, we charge a processing fee of 50 euros per seminar up to 11 days before the start of the seminar. If the rebooking is made later, we charge 10% of the seminar price, but at least 50 euros per seminar. The date on which we receive the customer's written declaration is decisive in each case. The customer is free to nominate another participant in order to avert a rebooking. If prior certification with the persolog® Personality Factor Model (or another certification of persolog GmbH) is required for the event, the substitute person must fulfil this requirement.

9. We are entitled to hold our face-to-face seminars as online seminars if the holding of face-to-face seminars is restricted or prohibited by official orders. In this case, the custom-er has the exclusive choice between rebooking the face-to-face seminar for a later date or attending the online seminar which replaces the face-to-face seminar. The client does not have the right to cancel the seminar free of charge. The customer will be in-formed about the change from the face-to-face seminar to the online seminar before the booked date. The decision to participate in the online seminar shall be deemed to have been made if the client does not request a rebooking by e-mail 48 hours before the start of the online seminar.

10. The client may cancel open group seminars with the exception of digital seminars. Such cancellation is free of charge up to 30 days before the start of the seminar. If the cancellation is made up to 14 days before the start of the seminar, the client shall pay 50% of the seminar price. In the event of cancellation less than 14 days before the start of the seminar, the full seminar price must be paid. The date of receipt of the customer's written declaration by us shall be decisive in each case. The client is free to nominate another participant in order to avoid cancellation. If prior certification with the persolog® Personality Factor Model (or another certification of persolog GmbH) is required for the event, the substitute person must fulfil these prerequisites.

11. The client may rebook open group seminars with the exception of digital seminars. Such a rebooking of the seminar is possible free of charge if it is made up to 30 days before the start of the seminar. In the event of a rebooking on a different date, we charge a processing fee of 50 euros per seminar up to 11 days before the start of the seminar. In the event of a later rebooking, we will charge 10% of the seminar price, but at least 50 euros per seminar. The date on which we receive the customer's written declaration is decisive in each case. The customer is free to name another participant in order to avoid a rebooking. If prior certification with the persolog® Personality Factor Model (or another certification of persolog GmbH) is required for the event, the substitute person must fulfil this requirement.

12. In-house seminars may not be cancelled free of charge, in deviation from Clause 10. If a cancellation is made up to 21 days before the start of the seminar, the customer must pay 25% of the seminar price. Cancellations up to 15 days before the start of the seminar are possible against payment of 50% of the seminar price. Cancellations within 14 days prior to the start of the seminar are subject to payment of the full seminar price. In all other respects, the provisions of Clause 10 shall apply.

13. In deviation from Clause 11, in-house seminars can be rebooked free of charge up to 21 days before the start of the seminar if the parties agree on a different date. In the event of a later rebooking on a date agreed by both parties, we shall charge 25% of the seminar fee. If, in the event of a rebooking, no agreement is reached between the parties on another date within 1 week of receipt of the rebooking request, the rebooking shall be treated as a cancellation in accordance with Clause 12. In all other respects, the provisions of Clause 11 shall apply.

14. Digital seminars cannot be cancelled or rebooked.

15. Cancellation or rebooking requests by the customer must be made in writing and should be addressed to:

17. The right to participate in our seminars acquired upon conclusion of the contract is not transferable.

6. In the event of default in payment, we shall be entitled to demand interest on arrears at the statutory rate. The assertion of further damages caused by default remains unaffected by this.

7. The customer may only offset a claim against us if it is undisputed by us or has been legally established. The customer is only entitled to exercise a right of retention insofar as his counterclaim is based on the same contractual relationship. The customer shall not be entitled to a right of retention due to partial performance in accordance with Section 320 (2) of the German Civil Code (BGB).

VI Registration and creation of a customer account

Purchased eport-credits are not refunded or paid out.

VII Copyright and property rights, rights of use

1.The products and contents provided by us are protected by copyrights or other rights of us or third parties and may only be used within the scope of the contractually agreed purpose of use. For the use of these products and contents, the customer acquires, under the condition of payment of the purchase/seminar price owed and due, for himself and, to the extent of his order/booking and the individual contractual agreement, if applicable also for other designated authorised users, the simple, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable right of use to the respective products and contents for his own purposes, which right cannot be transferred to third parties. The right of use allows the customer read access to the content of the product as well as downloading, one-time saving and one-time printing of content.

2. Any use beyond that specified in section VII.1 of these Terms and Conditions is excluded and requires the prior separate written consent of the respective rights holder, unless such use is permitted by mandatory statutory provisions. In particular, the customer or other authorised users are prohibited from copying the products and contents provided - including excerpts thereof - removing copyright notices or brand designations, modifying or changing the products and contents, copying the products and contents to other data carriers or networks, creating and using reproductions and any transfer against payment or free of charge, any making available or any form of commercial use.

a) We make the eBook available to the customer for download after the conclusion of the contract.

b) With the download of the eBook, the customer acquires a simple, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable right of use to the eBook that is not transferable to third parties and is unlimited in time. An acquisition of rights to the content or the eBook itself is not associated with this.

VIII Warranty

1.In the case of contracts for the delivery of goods, the customer shall be entitled to the rights and claims under the statutory law on liability for defects. Claims for liability for defects shall become statute-barred within 12 months of handover of the goods, unless longer limitation periods are mandatorily provided for by law.

2. In connection with liability for defects in software, it must be taken into account that error-free functioning of the software cannot be realised under all application conditions. Liability for defects is therefore excluded if the software is operated on a system which does not meet the minimum requirements stated on the packaging or in the documentation, unless the customer proves that the defect would also exist if the software had been used on a system which met these minimum requirements.

IX Liability

1.We shall be liable in accordance with the statutory provisions insofar as the customer asserts claims for damages or reimbursement of expenses which are based on intent or gross negligence, including intent or gross negligence on the part of our representatives or vicarious agents. Insofar as we are not accused of intentional breach of contract, the liability for damages shall be limited to the foreseeable, typically occurring damage.

2. We shall be liable in accordance with the statutory provisions if we culpably breach an essential contractual obligation; in this case, however, the liability for damages shall be limited to the typically occurring damage foreseeable at the time of conclusion of the contract.

3. Liability for culpable injury to life, limb or health shall remain unaffected; this shall also apply to mandatory liability under the Product Liability Act.

4. Unless otherwise stipulated above or within our Terms of Use, liability - regardless of the legal nature of the asserted claim - is excluded. This applies in particular to claims for damages arising from culpa in contrahendo, from other breaches of duty or from tortious claims for compensation for property damage pursuant to § 823 BGB.

5. The personal liability of our legal representatives, vicarious agents and employees for damage caused by them through slight negligence is excluded. Insofar as the liability for damages towards us is excluded or limited, this shall also apply with regard to the personal liability for damages of the aforementioned persons.

X Retention of title

1.In the event of the delivery of goods, the goods shall remain our property until full payment of all claims arising from the business relationship between us and the customer.

2. Insofar as the respective law in whose area the goods are located does not permit a reservation of title, we are entitled to exercise all rights that we can otherwise reserve to the goods. The customer is obliged to cooperate in all measures which we wish to take to protect our right of ownership or, in its place, any other security interest in the goods

XI Data protection

1.The required customer and delivery data will be collected, processed and stored by us in accordance with the provisions of German data protection law. The data will be used for the fulfilment of the contract and in this context will also be passed on to third parties where necessary.

3. In addition, our data protection declaration applies at https://www.persolog.de/allgemeine-geschaeftsbedingungen/datenschutz/.

XII Place of performance, place of jurisdiction and applicable law

1.The place of performance and jurisdiction for all obligations arising directly or indirectly from the contractual relationship is the location of our registered office in 75196 Remchingen. We are also entitled to take legal action at the customer's place of business.
