General Terms and Conditions (GTC) and Consumer Information

General Terms and Conditions and Consumer Information in the context of purchase contracts concluded via the online shop between Katja Kempe – hereinafter referred to as “Seller” – and the customer – hereinafter referred to as “Customer”. These General Terms and Conditions apply to all courses offered and conducted by Katja Kempe. Additional or deviating terms and conditions are only recognised if they have been agreed in writing.


§ 1 Scope and general information

(1) Subject to individual agreements and arrangements which take precedence over these General Terms and Conditions, the following General Terms and Conditions apply exclusively to the business relationship between the Seller and the Customer. Unless otherwise agreed, the inclusion of the customer’s own terms and conditions is objected to.

(2) The customer is a consumer insofar as he concludes the contract for purposes which can predominantly be attributed neither to his commercial nor to his independent professional activity. In contrast, an entrepreneur is any natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity who, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of his commercial or self-employed professional activity.


§ 2 Conclusion of contract

(1) The contract is concluded with:

Jewellery Academy Cologne
Katja Kempe
Maria-Hilfstrasse 4
50677 Cologne

Fon 0221 – 1681766

(2) The essential characteristics of the goods result from the respective product description posted by the Seller.

(3) All offers in the Seller’s online shop are merely a non-binding invitation to the Customer to submit a corresponding purchase offer to the Seller. As soon as the Seller has received the Customer’s order, the Customer will first be sent a confirmation of the order placed with the Seller, usually by e-mail (order confirmation). The order confirmation does not yet constitute acceptance of the order. After receipt of the customer’s order, the seller will check it at short notice and inform the customer within 2 working days whether it accepts the order (order confirmation). The ordering process in the Seller’s online shop works as follows:

(4) The Customer can select products from the Seller’s range and collect them in a so-called shopping basket by clicking on the “Add to basket” button. By clicking on the “Shopping Basket” button, the customer receives an overview of the selected products. By clicking on the button “Buy now” he makes a binding request to purchase the goods in the shopping basket. Before submitting the order, the customer can change and view the entered order and the entered data at any time by using the browser functions “Back” and “Next” shown as arrow keys. The application can only be submitted and transmitted if the customer has accepted these contractual terms and conditions by clicking on the button “Accept GTC” and has thereby included them in his application. The seller then sends the customer an automatic confirmation of receipt by e-mail, in which the customer’s order is listed again and which the customer can print out using the “Print” function. The automatic acknowledgement of receipt merely documents that the Seller has received the Customer’s order and does not constitute acceptance of the application. The contract is not concluded until the Seller issues the declaration of acceptance, which is sent by a separate e-mail.


§ 3 Subject matter of the contract, quality, delivery, availability of goods

The subject matter of the contract shall be the services specified by the customer within the scope of the order and stated in the order and/or order confirmation at the final prices stated in the online shop. Errors and omissions there are excepted, especially with regard to availability.


§ 4. realisation of a course

A course will take place if the minimum number of participants, currently two, is reached. If this is not the case three days before the date, Katja Kempe may cancel the course. Participation fees already paid will be refunded. No further compensation will be paid for the consequences of the cancellation.


§ 5 Liability

Katja Kempe is neither liable for the health of the participants nor for the integrity of tools or equipment brought along. In the event of force majeure or illness of the course instructor, Katja Kempe reserves the right, to the exclusion of any claims for damages, to move the event to another location or to another date, to continue the course online, to use another qualified course instructor or to cancel the event altogether.

In the event of a cancellation, you will of course receive a refund of the participant fees.
