Cancellation by raumstation 12 GbR

Workshop fees will then be refunded either in full or on a pro-rata basis if a workshop is discontinued after its commencement. In the event that a workshop instructor is not available for the entire or part of the course, the organizer is entitled to provide an equivalent substitute. However, workshop participants are then also entitled to cancel their registration for the replacement workshop against a 100% refund of the workshop fee or the respective fraction. Participants waive any claims against the organizer for refunds of any other costs, such as travel and accommodation costs etc..
Schedule Change or Festival Cancellation
Raumstation b12 GbR is responsible for putting every effort into maintaining the original schedule. Due to Force majeure raumstation b12 GbR does not guarantee that the schedule is happening as planned. Raumstation b12 GbR cannot compensate for any financial loss from traveling or quarantine or any resulting loss of funds due to circumstances not controllable by raumstation 12 GbR. Any workshop which is taught partially will be reimbursed accordingly.
Canceling workshop by the participant before the workshop has started
Notice of cancellation must be given in writing to be valid. Registrations are binding and the course fee is payable if the participant is invited by the organizer and undertakes to attend. Payment of the complete workshop fee constitutes a binding registration of the participant in the b12 workshop.
The full amount, apart from a 10 Euro administrative fee, is refunded to the participant if registration is canceled up to 14 days after the workshop fee has been received.
A voucher of the amount of the full workshop fee will be available to the participant if registration is canceled between 15 days after the workshop fee has been received and the day of the workshop (before the workshop commences).
The voucher will be valid for two years and can be redeemed towards the workshops in any of the b12 festivals. The voucher is a personal voucher inseparably connected to the canceling participant and therefore cannot be transferred to others. It can only be used for a single transaction, cannot be exchanged for cash or another type of refund.
Changing workshops by the participant before the workshop has started
Changing workshops are only possible after the confirmation by the organizers. Any single change of workshops until 45 days before the originally booked workshop commences is free of charge. Any single change of workshops made 44 days (or less) before the workshops commences incurs a 10 Euro administrative charge. The administrative charge has to be paid before the workshop commences, otherwise the participant is not allowed to take part in the workshop.
Absence or Discontinuing workshop by the participant after the workshop has started
If the participant for any reason fails to attend or discontinues participation while the workshop has already commenced, no fee is refunded and no voucher is being issued.
As an exception, If the reason for a cancellation by a participant is injury or sickness, and raumstation 12 GbR receives an official doctors certificate stating that the participant is unable to continue to participate, a voucher will be issued over the value of the remaining days.
Discontinuing workshop participation after the workshop has started
The participant agrees that workshops present a flexible working environment and that the way workshops are advertised may differ partially from their actual execution. The participant furthermore agrees that disliking a workshop is not a reason to get refunded. In order to uphold the integrity of the workshops, raumstation 12 GbR does not, in any case, support changing workshops due to any personal dislike of the workshop.
If a participant has participated partially in a workshop and has other serious reasons for changing to another workshop, the participant must apply for an exemption through the raumstation 12 GbR/b12 festival direction. A claim to a change does not exist.
The participant can then apply for another workshop and can book another workshop if the organizers agree. Changing workshops is possible only after the first day. b12 does not allow switching after the second workshop day.
In the exceptional case that the participant is granted to change workshops after the first day, the participant gets a voucher over 50% of the value of the remaining days. There will be no monetary refund for partial participation or remaining workshop days. Workshops that have already commenced, cannot be joined. This voucher is valid for two years and can be used towards any workshop in any of the upcoming b12 festivals, including the festival in progress, if the festival organizers agree to the chosen workshop.
booked workshops are never transferable to another person. The workshops can only be taken by the person who originally booked and was accepted by the organizers of b12 to the workshops.
Double bookings by raumstation 12 GbR and the participant
raumstation 12 GbR and the participants are in equal parts responsible for ensuring that no workshops are booked which are overlapping and completely or partially happening at the same time.
In the event of such, raumstation 12 GbR allows the participant, if possible, to change to another third workshop, without any extra fee. If this change, for whatever reason is not possible, raumstation b12 GbR grants the participant a voucher over 50% of the original workshop fee.
