For this purpose we need the subscriber’s name and the corresponding e-mail address which is used as user name for the PRO Coach account.
If users register with doozzoo for a purpose that cannot be attributed to their commercial or self-employed professional activity, the following provisions apply to those users as consumers within the meaning of § 13 BGB (German Civil Code).
BEGINNING OF THE REVOCATION INSTRUCTION
(1) REVOCATION INSTRUCTION
The user has the right according to § 355, BGB, within 14 days without giving reasons to revoke the contract. The revocation period is 14 days from the date of booking. In order to exercise the right of withdrawal, the user can use the withdrawal form on doozzoo, which is, however, not mandatory. In addition, the revocation can also be made by means of a clear declaration of the decision to revoke the contract as follows: “By post to doozzoo GbR, Thomas Gier, Christoph Pelz, Kapellenstr. 17, 40670 Meerbusch, or by e-mail to: account(at)doozzoo.com. There will be a written confirmation of revocation. In order to comply with the revocation period, it is sufficient for the notification of the exercise of the right of revocation to be sent before the expiry of the revocation period.
(2) Consequences of the revocation
If the agreement is revoked, all payments booked to the doozzoo account will be refunded immediately and at the latest within fourteen days from the day on which doozzoo received the notification of revocation of this agreement. The same means of payment will be used for this refund as was used for the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise with doozzoo; in no case will any fees be charged for the refund.
END OF THE REVOCATION POLICY
(3) Withdrawal form
If the customer wishes to cancel the contract, please copy the form below, fill in the dates and return it to:
Thomas Gier, Christoph Pelz
I/we (*) hereby revoke the contract/booking concluded by me/us (*) with doozzoo:
Ordered on (*) / received on (*)
Name(s) of consumer(s)
Address of consumer(s)
Signature of consumer(s)
(only for paper messages)
(*) Delete as appropriate
(4) Both parties have the right to terminate the contract at any time for good cause. The cancellation can be made informally by e-mail or by letter to doozzoo GbR, Thomas Gier, Christoph Pelz, Kapellenstr. 17, 40670 Meerbusch, as operator. Such an important reason can exist, if it is unreasonable for doozzoo to continue the booked package of the user, whereby all circumstances of the individual case are considered and the interests of the operator are weighed against those of the user. This may be the case, for example, if a user violates legal regulations or violates an obligation under these GTC.
(5) If the contract is terminated for good cause or if user access has been restricted in accordance with these GTC, the affected user has no claim to repayment of advance payments already made. The same applies in case of premature termination of the contract, unless the termination was declared for an important reason for which doozzoo is responsible. Furthermore, a direct debit authorisation does not automatically expire due to the termination and doozzoo remains entitled to collect outstanding claims.
§ 5 Technical requirement for the use of doozzoo
(1) To use the video chat platform, the user requires a computer with a current browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, monitor loudspeakers/headphones, webcam and fast Internet access (from 16000kb/s is recommended). Cookies and Java Script must be enabled. If the user does not have these technical prerequisites, this may result in impairments of use. In some cases the use may be impossible. Doozzoo does not assume any liability or guarantee for the flawless execution of the online lessons, if the aforementioned conditions are not fulfilled.
