Part One – Legal Relationship between Brilliant-Skills and the User (Coachee)

§ 1 Basic principles & scope of application

  1. By using the services offered on the website, the user declares his agreement with the General Terms and Conditions. Users who do not declare their agreement with the General Terms and Conditions are prohibited from using the services of the Brilliant-Skills GmbH website. A use already exists if the user calls up and uses the data of the internet portal without making an own entry. A use of data is therefore already present in the establishment of contact and in the filtering of data via the Internet portal. The use of the Internet portal is subject to the current General Terms and Conditions.
  2. These Terms and Conditions shall also apply in the respective current version to all future transactions with the Customer. The current version of the Terms and Conditions is available to anyone on the Internet at https://www.brilliant-skills.com/terms-conditions/ at any time.
  3. Brilliant-Skills GmbH does not recognize conflicting GTC or GTC deviating from these GTC, unless the validity of these GTC is expressly agreed to in writing. Brilliant-Skills GmbH reserves the right to change or amend the GTC at any time with legally binding effect. Changes or additions become effective for the customer with the publication on the pages.
  4. The website www.brilliant-skills.de is operated by Brilliant-Skills GmbH, An der Schanz 2, D-50735 Cologne, Germany (hereinafter “BS”).
  5. BS acts in the context of the presentation of services of third party providers exclusively as an agent of services. In the event of a booking, the service-related contracts are concluded exclusively between the customer and the respective third-party provider / service provider. Special regulations and restrictions (general terms and conditions of the third-party provider) may apply to the selected services. The entire contract processing and the processing of any service disruptions shall take place exclusively between the customer and the third party provider.

§ 2 Contractual basis

  1. The subject of the contract between the user and BS regulated in these GTC is the mediation of further and continuing education courses. BS provides its users on this Internet portal an online platform through which third party training and education courses can be booked through mediation to the respective organizer there.
  2. Through the booking, therefore, between the user and BS only an intermediary contract is concluded. The booking confirmation sent by BS to the user following the booking request is merely a summary and confirmation of receipt of the booking request. The booking confirmation must be checked immediately after sending for accuracy and completeness, otherwise there may be errors in the context of the mediation relationship and / or the mediated course, for which the user is then responsible. The contract brokered by BS between the user and the organizer is concluded when the organizer has confirmed the requested event legally binding.
  3. Notification of course offerings from third-party providers/service providers is non-binding.
  4. The registration constitutes a contract offer. The registrant must provide all information required for the execution of the contract.
  5. The activity of the BS is limited exclusively to mediation services. The proper fulfillment and/or implementation of the mediated course as such is not part of the contractual obligations. In particular, BS does not constitute and shall not be deemed to constitute a recommendation or confirmation of the quality, qualification or learning content of available courses.
  6. The contract is concluded by declaration of acceptance (confirmation of registration). From the registration confirmation results the start and course location of the event.
  7. Upon conclusion of the contract, contractual rights and obligations are established between the third-party provider / service provider and the registrant. In particular, the participant expressly acknowledges these GTC.
  8. Registrations will be processed in the order in which they are received.

If a user violates the General Terms and Conditions or if there is a reasonable suspicion of a violation, BS is entitled to exclude the respective user from the services of the Internet portal and to immediately delete the data transmitted by him. Before excluding the user from the Internet portal, BS shall request the user to refrain from the actions in breach of contract by setting a reasonable deadline. If the user does not comply with the request, he can be excluded without further notice. If the violation of the user is so serious that BS can no longer be expected to maintain the user relationship, the user relationship can also be terminated without setting a deadline. This is particularly the case in the event of a violation of statutory provisions.
  3. BS takes steps to secure unauthorized duplication of the media, but cannot completely rule out the possibility of theft.

§ 4 Rights and obligations of users

  2. This applies in particular to links to other Internet pages, references to offers in printed works or digital media, which the user makes.

In particular, BS may reproduce and distribute the content in any form and make it available to the public. A reproduction of the offers of BS is only permitted with the prior consent of BS.
  3. In case of violation BS will take both civil and criminal action against the respective user.

BS reserves the right to claim damages, including non-material damages, from users who engage in spamming using data from the Internet portal. The user is obliged to provide truthful information during registration. If the user’s details change, in particular name, address, e-mail address, telephone number or bank details, the user is obliged to inform BS of the change immediately by changing the details. If the user fails to provide this information or provides false data from the outset, in particular a false email address, BS may, insofar as a contract has been concluded, withdraw from the contract.
  4. The User shall indemnify BS against all claims asserted against BS by third parties due to the violation of these GTC or other statutory provisions by the User.

The period begins for you with the dispatch of your revocation, for us with its receipt.
