The same applies to changes and amendments of these general or special terms and conditions of the customer.
Formation of the contract
The offers of Agilizer Academy GmbH are subject to change and non-binding, unless otherwise agreed in writing. A contract is only concluded with the written confirmation of the order by Agilizer Academy GmbH, at the latest, however, with the delivery to the customer (sales contract) or the commencement of the contractually agreed services (work, service and training services). Verbal promises, side agreements as well as other statements in brochures, price lists, advertisements etc., regardless if they were made verbally or via internet (e-mail), always require a written confirmation by Agilizer Academy GmbH to be binding.

Agilizer Academy GmbH is entitled to withdraw from the contract in case of impossibility for which Agilizer Academy GmbH is not responsible, force majeure, strike, natural catastrophes etc., behavior of the customer contrary to the contract, in case of false information of the customer concerning the creditworthiness or in case of objectively missing creditworthiness, in case of unforeseeable or necessary and unreasonable expenses, as well as in case of obstacles which cannot be overcome. If Agilizer Academy GmbH withdraws from the contract for reasons the customer is responsible for or if the customer revokes the placed order, Agilizer Academy GmbH is entitled to claim reimbursement of expenses; in case of premature termination of a contract for work and services especially § 649 BGB (German Civil Code) applies.
Prices and terms of payment, default in payment, set-off
Unless otherwise agreed in writing, payments are due immediately without any deduction after receipt of invoice. The prices do not include the respectively valid legal value added tax. The prices resulting from the order confirmation of Agilizer Academy GmbH are ex Agilizer Academy GmbH headquarters Brunn/Regensburg.

Other legal charges in the country of delivery, as well as packaging, transport costs, transport insurances and handling fees will be charged to the customer according to the respective Agilizer Academy GmbH order confirmation. If the payment dates are exceeded, Agilizer Academy GmbH is entitled to default interest in the amount of 8% per year above the respective base interest rate of the ECB according to § 1 Discount Rate Transition Act without further reminder. Agilizer Academy GmbH reserves the right to prove a higher damage caused by default. The customer can only set off undisputed or legally binding claims against claims of Agilizer Academy GmbH. The customer can only exercise a right of retention against counterclaims which are based on the same contractual relationship. In case of ongoing business relations each individual order or each individual service agreement shall be considered as a separate contractual relationship.
Limitation of liability
Agilizer Academy GmbH is liable without limitation for damages caused intentionally or by gross negligence, as well as in cases where liability is mandatory under the Product Liability Act for personal injury or property damage to privately used items: Agilizer Academy GmbH is furthermore liable without limitation for damages resulting from injury to life, body or health. Regarding damages caused by slight negligence of Agilizer Academy GmbH the following applies: In case of a violation of essential contractual obligations endangering the purpose of the contract, the liability of Agilizer Academy GmbH is limited to such damages, the occurrence of which Agilizer Academy GmbH could reasonably foresee at the time of conclusion of the contract. The liability for financial losses, e.g. loss of production and loss of profit, is limited by the general principles of good faith, e.g. in cases of disproportion between the amount of compensation and the amount of damage. If the liability of Agilizer Academy GmbH is excluded or limited, this also applies to the personal liability of the employees, representatives and vicarious agents. The liability for the recovery of data is excluded, unless Agilizer Academy GmbH caused their destruction intentionally or grossly negligent and the customer has ensured that these data can be reconstructed with reasonable effort from data material which is kept ready in machine-readable form. In any case the liability to pay compensation for property damage caused by Agilizer Academy GmbH is limited to the coverage of the business and product liability insurance of Agilizer Academy GmbH. Agilizer Academy GmbH will inform the customer about the corresponding coverage amount on request in each individual case. In case of cancellation of a seminar due to illness of the lecturer, as long as Agilizer Academy GmbH did not neglect to provide a substitute lecturer due to gross negligence or intentionally, as well as cancellations for which Agilizer Academy GmbH is not responsible or force majeure, the customer has no right to claim for the execution of the seminar. In these cases Agilizer Academy GmbH cannot be obliged to compensate travel and accommodation costs as well as loss of work. In case of events in rooms and on properties of third parties Agilizer Academy GmbH is not liable towards the participants in case of accidents and loss or damage of their property. The same applies for events held on the premises of Agilizer Academy GmbH, unless the damage was caused by Agilizer Academy GmbH or its employees intentionally or by gross negligence. For competing tort claims the regulations of this clause 10 apply accordingly.
Agilizer Academy GmbH is entitled to have contractual obligations also partially performed by third parties as vicarious agents.
Agilizer Academy GmbH will provide consulting services within the time frames agreed upon in writing by qualified employees. As far as the consulting services are provided at the customer’s site, only Agilizer Academy GmbH is authorized to give instructions to its employees. Agilizer Academy GmbH reserves the right to select the employees who will provide the consulting services. Likewise, Agilizer Academy GmbH reserves the right to replace an employee by another employee with the necessary qualification at any time.
Duty to cooperate
The customer supports Agilizer Academy GmbH in the consulting services to be provided according to the agreement. Thereby the customer creates free of charge all conditions in the area of his business sphere, which are necessary for the proper provision of the consulting services. In particular, the customer shall: if necessary, provide working rooms for the employees of Agilizer Academy GmbH including the necessary work equipment for the fulfillment of the contract as needed and to a sufficient extent, name a contact person who is available to the employees of Agilizer Academy GmbH for information and questions etc. during the agreed working hours; this contact person is also authorized to make declarations with effect for the customer which are necessary as an interim decision in the context of the continuation of the contract, provide Agilizer Academy GmbH with all information and documents necessary for the fulfillment of the contract. If the customer omits or delays a cooperation which is incumbent upon him according to this or due to a separate agreement, Agilizer Academy GmbH can nevertheless demand the agreed remuneration for the consulting services not provided as a result, without being obligated to subsequent performance. If Agilizer Academy GmbH decides to provide the consulting services nevertheless, this shall only be done after a reasonable adjustment of the schedule.
If the customer is in delay with the acceptance of the consulting services or if he omits an obligation to cooperate, Agilizer Academy GmbH is on the one hand entitled to terminate the contract without notice. On the other hand, this does not affect his obligation to pay the agreed remuneration. Furthermore, the claims for compensation of possible additional expenses remain unaffected. If the consulting services cannot be provided for reasons Agilizer Academy GmbH is not responsible for, the agreed consulting period will still be charged. Something else applies if the customer can prove that the respective consultant of Agilizer Academy GmbH has been used elsewhere. This does not apply only if the customer cancels an agreed consulting service in time, i.e. at least 2 weeks before the agreed date in written form. If Agilizer Academy GmbH is in delay with the completion of the agreed consulting services, the customer is entitled to cancel the respective order after the unsuccessful expiration of a reasonable grace period granted to Agilizer Academy GmbH. Agilizer Academy GmbH does not assume any further liability in case of default, unless liability is mandatory in cases of intent or gross negligence.
Acceptance of work services
Work performances of Agilizer Academy GmbH have to be accepted by the customer in written form within 10 working days after notification of readiness for acceptance by Agilizer Academy GmbH. If the customer omits the written acceptance declaration towards Agilizer Academy GmbH, the work performance is considered as accepted according to the contract. Likewise, a work performance is considered as accepted according to the contract, if it is used productively by the customer. The acceptance of the services defined in the service description by the customer (AG) is done immediately after a corresponding notification by Agilizer Academy GmbH, usually on the first working day after completion of the commissioning. If the service of Agilizer Academy GmbH complies with the agreements according to the service description, the Customer declares the acceptance in written form immediately after successful acceptance test. If the customer refuses the written acceptance declaration to Agilizer Academy GmbH, the work, including partial services, shall be considered as accepted according to the contract upon commissioning by the customer.
An employee of Agilizer Academy GmbH is available for support during the acceptance test to an appropriate extent. Details of the acceptance inspection shall be mutually agreed upon in writing within a reasonable period of time prior to acceptance. If partial acceptances are agreed upon, they shall be performed after completion of corresponding project phases between the AG and Agilizer Academy GmbH. If the acceptance inspection is carried out together, the AG will keep a protocol. The AG will declare the acceptance in written form immediately after successful completion of the acceptance test. If the acceptance cannot take place twice because of an error in a program or in other services of Agilizer Academy GmbH, the AG can demand a compensation for delay for the time of delay of 0,5% per completed week, but in total not more than 5% of the remuneration of the part of the service which is in delay. At the same time the customer may withdraw from the contract after the expiration of a reasonable grace period granted to Agilizer Academy GmbH with the threat of refusal. Further claims are excluded. Acceptance by the AG means that the services owed by Agilizer Academy GmbH are essentially in accordance with the contract. The AG shall not refuse acceptance due to insignificant defects. Defects, which do not prevent acceptance, shall be recorded during the acceptance process on the acceptance protocol to be signed by both parties and shall be removed immediately by Agilizer Academy GmbH within the scope of the warranty obligation.

There are no further claims against Agilizer Academy GmbH, especially the reimbursement of costs due to loss of work or travel expenses.
