§ 3 Implementation of the events

The IEFT can also make necessary changes to the details of the events in the program booklet or on the internet after conclusion of the contract. The changes will be announced on the internet and to the already registered participants by e-mail. Registered participants can withdraw from the contract within 14 days after notification of a change. They will then be refunded the costs. A handling fee of 8 Euros will be retained.

There is no entitlement to instruction by a particular instructor.

There is no right to compensation for a day missed by the participant.

No liability can be assumed in case of theft. Also, no liability can be assumed for damages during the journey to or from the event as well as during the event, beyond that required by law.


§ 5 Data protection

§ 6 Property rights and copyrights

The reproduction of any kind of excerpts or the complete materials from the events may only be carried out with the prior express written permission of the IEFT, with the exception of those for purely personal use.


§ 7 Right of cancellation and withdrawal conditions

Cancellation has to be made in written form by e-mail via registered e-mail to the Institute for Emotion-Focused Therapy Munich IEFT, Malsenstraße 86, 80638 Munich, Germany. In case of a cancellation in advance by e-mail, the receipt of the e-mail is considered as the date of cancellation, provided that the postal cancellation arrives immediately afterwards.

In case of a change of date for an event by the IEFT after conclusion of the contract, the participant may withdraw from the contract for this and any subsequent events booked, free of charge, within 14 days after notification of the change of date by e-mail. The costs for the cancelled events will then be refunded or credited as payments to substitute events, if such are booked by the participant. A handling fee of 8 Euros will be retained.

In case of cancellation of a speaker or due to an insufficient number of participants or for other compelling reasons that prevent the proper execution of the event, the IEFT reserves the right to withdraw from the contract for this event. The fees already paid will be refunded accordingly. A handling fee of 8 Euro will be retained. There are no further claims for damages.

When booking a single workshop, a withdrawal is possible up to 6 weeks before the start of the event. In this case a handling fee of 15 € will be charged and retained. In the case of refunds of course fees already paid abroad, the recipient of the money is responsible for all fees incurred. In case of cancellation after this deadline up to one week before the event, we will have to charge you 50% of the seminar fees. In case of a later cancellation or in case of no-show to the events or premature termination of the participation, the full participation fee has to be paid. 

The conditions for withdrawal from the booking of the multi-part training in emotion focused therapy are regulated in the training contract.
