1. House rules

The participant is committed to follow the instructions of the management and the house rules as well as the rules for the use of the jointly owned facilities. He understands that the management is entitled to exclude each participant from the classes in case of violations of the house rules and/or of the rules for the use of the jointly owned facilities without any claims of (also partial) refund of registration fees or course fees. Further, participants at the age of 16 or younger have to take note that it is strictly forbidden to leave (even short-term) the 'Landesbildungszentrum Schloss Zell an der Pram' without permission of the management. Besides the active attendance at the classes the participant's independent and autonomous practicing is an essential precondition for the success of the course. A permanent supervision of minor participants during their practising is not possible due to the number of participants and due to the necessity to enable an undisturbed practising for all participants. It is therefore emphasized that any responsibility for the organizer and his collaborators is excluded for any damages caused by the participant, or in cases of non-compliance of instructions or of violations of the house rules and/or of the rules for the use of the jointly owned facilities, provided that the organizer or his collaborators are not chargeable for intention of for gross negligence, or if a damage is covered by an insurance company.
