§ 9 Place of consultation
The coaching and consulting appointments take place virtually without further agreement and on site by appointment. In the case of coaching on a video conference platform or other online collaboration platforms, the counselor assumes no liability for the functionality and availability of the technical platforms made available. If the coaching cannot take place due to connection problems on the client's side, the planned unit will be charged. If the failure is due to the counselor's connection problems, the planned unit will be made up for at a different time. If the client prefers to arrange a physical meeting directly with the counselor, he/she can arrange this individually. If the counselor travels there, additional travel costs may arise. These are not included in the price. A recording of virtual coaching is not permitted without the prior consent of the contractor. The counselor reserves the right to postpone consultation appointments that have already been agreed before the planned appointment for important reasons for which we are not responsible (e.g. sudden illness of the coach, force majeure).
§ 10 Appointments and Cancellation Fee
The appointments booked via the website and made by mutual agreement are binding. The counselor undertakes to keep the agreed appointments free for the client. If a client misses an agreed appointment without having canceled at least 48 hours in advance, the counselor is entitled according to §615 BGB to the client a cancellation fee of 50% of the agreed/paid consulting fee and, if necessary, reimbursement of the Travel and time costs to be charged. If the client stays away from the appointment without an excuse, the full consultation fee is due. This obligation to pay does not apply if the consultation appointment has been canceled in advance in writing or by telephone or has to be canceled at short notice due to a serious event. In this case, too, the client must inform the counselor of the failure at an early stage and, if necessary, provide appropriate proof.
§ 11 Right of withdrawal
If the coaching contract was concluded by booking online, by e-mail or by telephone, it is a so-called distance contract. In this case, the client has the right to withdraw from this contract within fourteen days without giving any reason. The cancellation period is fourteen days from the day the contract was concluded. In order to exercise their right of withdrawal, the client must

by means of a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or by e-mail) of his/her decision to withdraw from this contract. To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient to send the communication regarding the exercise of the right of cancellation before the cancellation period has expired. Consequences of revocation: If the client revokes this contract, the counselor must repay all payments to the client immediately and at the latest within fourteen days from the day on which the counselor received notification of the revocation of this contract. The same means of payment used in the original transaction will be used for this repayment, unless expressly agreed otherwise; under no circumstances will THE client be charged fees for this repayment. If a part of the service (e.g. in the form of a complete coaching unit) has already been used, the right of withdrawal expires.
