Below you will find the detailed and legally binding terms and conditions. But beforehand, let me summarise the most important regulations that apply when ordering courses on this website.

Binding Order. As soon as you order one or more courses on this website using the online order form followed by paying the displayed price using the PayPal (even without a PayPal account), your order is legally binding. Furthermore, if you are a consumer, there is the right of withdrawal that allows you to cancel the order within 14 days.

E-Mails. Please ensure that you are able to receive emails sent to the address you enter during the ordering process.

Course Access. After you purchased an online course, you will get access to the course content through this website. If not stated otherwise, this is a lifetime access licence. That means: If we should shut down our services at any time in the future, you will get the opportunity to download the course content, so you do not rely on the availability of this website.

Tax Info. Prices are always total prices. As long as you did not enter any address information, the prices include German VAT. As soon as you enter your billing address information, VAT will be re-calculated in case the German VAT does not apply to your order. No matter what, you will always see the total price before placing a legally binding order.

Coupons. If you received a promotion voucher, you can only use this to purchase one or more courses at a discount or for free – depending on the voucher’s value.

Contract Scope

These general terms and conditions (hereinafter “GTC”) from David Gollasch, acting as “Informatiker David Gollasch, M.Sc.” as well as “Computer Scientist David Gollasch, M.Sc.” (hereinafter “seller”) apply to all contracts for the delivery of digital goods that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter “customer”) concludes with the seller. The inclusion of the customer’s own conditions is hereby contradicted, unless otherwise agreed.

A consumer within the meaning of these GTC is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for private and personal purposes only. An entrepreneur within the meaning of these GTC is a natural or legal person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes related to their commercial or professional activities. Digital goods within the meaning of these GTC is all data that is produced in digital form and provided by the seller with the granting of certain rights of use.

Contract Conclusion

The displayed products and product descriptions invite customers to submit a binding offer and do not represent binding offers on the part of the seller. The customer can submit a binding offer using the online order form within the seller’s online shop. Before the binding submission of the order via the seller’s online order form, the customer can recognise and correct possible input errors by carefully reading the information displayed on the screen. The offer is legally binding as soon as the customer clicks the button to conclude the ordering process.

The seller can accept the customer’s offer by sending the customer an order confirmation by email. If the customer pays using a payment method offered by an external service provider that can be selected in the online ordering process, the seller already declares acceptance of the customer’s offer at the point in time at which the customer clicks the button to conclude the ordering process.

The contract text will be saved by the seller after the contract is concluded. The customer has the option of viewing, printing and saving the contract text before placing a legally binding order.

Order processing and correspondence are usually performed by email and automated order processing. The customer has to ensure that the e-mail address given by him to process the order is correct such that the e-mails sent by the seller can be received.

Digital Goods

Digital goods are provided to the customer exclusively in electronic form as follows:

  • by download and / or
  • by email and / or
  • by accessing the digital goods through the seller’s website.

The seller is responsible for choosing the most suitable form for providing the digital goods. The delivery by e-mail is completed when the e-mail has been sent without technical errors. The customer has to ensure that he can receive the sent email. For the delivery by download or access via the website of the seller, the seller ensures that the digital goods can be obtained and communicates the information required for the delivery process to the customer. In the case of the delivery by download, the seller reserves the right to only allow the download for a limited time, provided that he communicates this period to the customer. If the limited time expires and the customer did not perform the download, the customer will be given the opportunity to obtain the digital goods again on request. In the case of access to the digital goods on the seller’s website, there are no such time restrictions unless otherwise agreed. As soon as the seller no longer provides the digital goods via his website, the customer may obtain the goods via an alternative delivery procedure.

All digital goods provided by the seller are protected by copyright. Unless otherwise stated in the description of the goods in the seller’s online shop, the seller grants the customer the non-exclusive, spatially and temporally unlimited right to use the provided goods for private and business purposes.

The seller does not grant the right of exploitation. A transfer of the content to third parties or the creation of copies for third parties outside the scope of these GTC is not permitted.

The granting of rights only becomes effective when the customer has paid the contractually owed payment in full. The seller can provisionally allow the contractual goods to be used before this point in time. A transfer of rights does not take place through such a provisional permit.

Unless otherwise stated in the seller’s product description, the prices given are total prices that include the statutory value added tax (hereinafter “VAT”) for Germany. There are no further shipping or delivery costs.

For deliveries to countries within the European Union except Germany, a different VAT rate may apply. If this is determined during the ordering process, the price information is automatically updated accordingly. The VAT is clearly shown before the binding order is placed.

In the case of deliveries to countries outside the European Union, additional costs may arise for which the seller is not responsible and which are to be borne by the customer. Such costs can also arise if the delivery is not made to a country outside the European Union, but the customer makes the payment from a country outside the European Union.

Promotion Vouchers

Vouchers that are issued free of charge by the seller as part of voucher campaigns with a certain period of validity and that cannot be purchased by the customer (hereinafter “promotional vouchers”) can only be redeemed in the seller’s online shop and only within the specified period. Furthermore, individual products can be excluded from the voucher campaign, provided that a corresponding restriction results from the content of the promotion voucher.

Promotion vouchers can only be redeemed before the order process has been completed. Subsequent billing is not possible. Furthermore, only one promotion voucher can be redeemed per order.

The value of the goods must be at least equal to the amount of the promotion voucher. Any remaining credit will not be refunded by the seller. If the value of the promotion voucher is insufficient to cover the order, one of the other payment methods offered by the seller can be selected to settle the remaining payment.
