TIMAF's liability is limited to replacement compensation, ie compensation of the value of the performance left behind. Any other liability is excluded.
The compensation to be paid by TIMAF will never exceed the total of the amounts already invoiced and paid on the basis of the relevant agreement.
The Client is entitled to cancel the agreed Training (with the exception of exams and, if applicable, study materials already delivered) in whole or in part. Cancellation must always be made in writing, the cancellation date being the date of receipt by TIMAF of the written cancellation.
The Client is entitled to replace a participant registered for a Training (with the exception of exams) with another person, if this has been reported to TIMAF in writing before the start of the Training. There is no charge for such a replacement. Naturally, the replacement participant must meet any entry requirements with regard to the relevant Training.

In case of cancellation of a Classroom training (with the exception of exams and, if applicable, study materials already delivered), the cancellation conditions apply as they can be found on the TIMAF website under the heading Price / Registration for the relevant Training.

Cancellation of an In-company training up to 1 month before the start of the Training is free of charge, with the exception of the reasonably incurred (at least all out-of-pocket) costs. These words are taken into account.
In the event of cancellation within 4 weeks before the start of the In-company training, the full invoice amount will be charged and the invoice amount must be paid in full.
TIMAF reserves the right to make changes to, for example, the course schedule, course times and/or the replacement of the trainer without stating reasons.
TIMAF will make every effort to provide the Training in accordance with the published schedule or the agreements made, but accepts no liability if a Training cannot take place due to circumstances or must be interrupted. In such a case, TIMAF will make every reasonable effort to complete the Training or to provide it at a later date or to offer a suitable alternative.
If the latter proves to be impossible, course fees already paid will be refunded or not charged.
Furthermore, TIMAF reserves the right to cancel a Classroom training due to lack of registrations. The registered participants will receive notification of such a cancellation no later than 5 working days before the start of the Training.
