General Terms & Conditions
New Leaders! Academy
- General scope of application
- These General Terms and Conditions (GTC) apply to all legal transactions of the New Leaders! Academy, hereinafter referred to as “organiser” or “we”, with its contractual partner, hereinafter referred to as “participant” or “you”, in particular for such legal transactions (including the provision of online tutorials and webinars) that come about via the website new-leaders.tempurl.host.

- Revocation Policy
You may revoke your contractual declaration in text form (e.g. letter, e-mail) within 14 days without stating reasons. The period begins after receipt of this instruction in text form, but not before conclusion of the contract and also not before fulfilment of our information obligations according to Article 246 § 2 in conjunction with § 1 para. 1 and 2 EGBGB (Introductory Law to the German Civil Code) as well as our obligations according to § 312 e para. 1 sentence 1 BGB in conjunction with Article 246 § 3 EGBGB. The timely dispatch of the revocation shall be sufficient to comply with the revocation period.
The revocation is to be sent to:
New Leaders! Academy
- Consequences of Revocation
If you effectively revoke the contract or individual bookings, we will reimburse you all payments we have received from you within the scope of the revoked service/booking without delay and at the latest within fourteen days from the day on which we received the notification of your revocation of this contract. In no case will you be charged any fees for this repayment.
The right of revocation expires as soon as the service to which the cancelled booking relates has been performed. This applies in particular to the purchase of non-live online courses and coaching sessions, as these are provided immediately after their purchase and we have thus already fulfilled our obligation to perform.

- Limitations of Liability
- Our liability arising from the contract concluded between us, irrespective of the legal grounds, for your damages which do not result from injury to life, body or health, is limited in amount to the damages typically foreseeable at the time of conclusion of the contract, insofar as the damage was caused by us or by a legal representative or a vicarious agent neither intentionally nor through gross negligence.
- This limitation of liability shall not apply if the damage is due to a culpable breach of material contractual obligations by us or by a legal representative or vicarious agent. An essential contractual obligation is an obligation the fulfilment of which is a prerequisite for the proper performance of the contract and on the observance of which you may regularly rely.
For technical reasons, we cannot guarantee the permanent and complete availability of the servers on which our Services are operated. The availability of our website or individual Services may therefore be limited at times – in particular due to the necessary performance of maintenance or repair work. We will inform you in good time about the performance of planned maintenance work and its scope by means of a notice on our website. Should the system fail unexpectedly, we will inform you of the extent and duration of the failure as soon as possible.
- Governing Law & Jurisdiction
The law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply. If you act as a company or are a merchant within the meaning of the German Commercial Code (HGB), our registered office shall be the place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract. In the case of contracts with consumers, the statutory provisions on the respective competent court shall apply.
- Online Dispute Resolution
Information on online dispute resolution for consumers: We draw your attention to the possibility of online dispute resolution (so-called “ODR platform”). Consumers can use the ODR platform as a contact point for the out-of-court settlement of disputes concerning contractual obligations arising from online purchase or service contracts. The ODR platform can be accessed at the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr.
We are willing to participate in the resolution of disputes via this ODR platform.
- Final Provisions
- We are entitled to amend these GTC. An amendment shall become effective if we notify you of the amendments in text form (e-mail) and you do not object to the amendment in text form (e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org) within 4 weeks of receipt and we have informed you of this right of objection.
- Both parties are entitled to transfer the contract to a company affiliated with them, a legal successor or a German company taking over the respective Services. They shall inform each other of this in text form before the planned transfer.
- Should any provision of these GTC be or become invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of these GTC shall remain unaffected, unless the omission of individual clauses would put a contracting party at such an unreasonable disadvantage that it can no longer be expected to adhere to the contract.
