General terms and conditions:
Conditions of participation:
Participation in PEM classes and workshops is possible from the age of 16 onwards (only with consent from a parent or legal guardian). Special cases are decided individually. There is no age limit. Classes and workshops will only take place with a minimum of four participants. The PEM Center eV is not obligated to offer subsequent classes and workshops if the minimum number of participants is not met. Under special circumstances, the executive board can approve of a class or workshop with fewer participants.
Admittance into the next level of training – compulsory attendance:
All participants must acknowledge that attending a subsequent class or workshop depends on their attendance of 80% of the initial class or workshop. Exceptions are possible only with consent of the head office.
Education and teaching on the basis of methods conveyed in classes and workshops, especially the Perdekamp Emotional Method:
All participants must acknowledge that all methods conveyed in classes and workshops, especially the Perdekamp Emotional Method, only serve the purpose of personal development. Only certified PEM instructors must pass on such knowledge and skills or instruct any third parties in such me-thods. All participants must furthermore acknowledge that it is explicitly prohibited to instruct any third party or offer „their own classes“ on the basis of the acquired knowledge and skills.
The course fee has to be paid at least one week before the start of the class or workshop. Re-gistrations are made online via www.pem-acting.com All registrations are binding and obligates the participant to pay the course fee. The participant can withdraw his/her registration and therefore the obligation of payment in due time.
The PEM Center eV reserves the right to changes in the course schedule or to comple-tely cancel a class or event if necessary. The PEM Center eV furthermore supplies the information on course leaders without liability. All information is subject to change and offers no valid reason for participants to withdraw from the event.
Should class time be cancelled, the missed time will be made up for if possible. The PEM Center eV is not obligated to offer an alternative date that is feasible for all participants. The date that is acceptable to the majority of participants will be selected. Should a participant not be able to attend this alternative date, no reimbursement of the course fee is possible.
Withdrawing from a workshop or class is only possible if notice is given in due time directly to the PEM Center eV. Should a participant withdraw over a week in advance, an administrative charge of £11 will be due. Should a participant withdraw later but before the start time of the class or workshop, an administrative charge of £20 will be due. The latest possible date for withdrawal is 24 hours before the start of the class or workshop. Should a participant withdraw la-ter, the full course fee will be due and no reimbursement of the course fee will be possible. This also applies should a participant not show up for a workshop or class without due notice. Should a participant withdraw from a class or workshop in due time but has already made payment of the course fee, the issued credit note can be used for another class or workshop of the customer’s choice, or – by special request – the course fee can be refunded. Should there be proof of a valid reason for absence (e.g. note of sickness), 75% of the course fee can be refunded in the form of a credit note. Belated registrations are no reason for reduction of the course fee.
Expulsion from class:
The PEM Center eV reserves the right to expel any participant for the remainder of class whose unacceptable behaviour disrupts or interferes with the course of the workshop or class. No refund of the course fee is possible under these circumstances.
The PEM Center eV is not liable for any accidents, thefts or other damages within the class or workshop, or when traveling to and from the class or workshop. All people participate at their own risk. The PEM Center eV reserves the right to exclude any participant from a class or workshop or prohibit them from entering the workshop space, should their behaviour inter-fere with or disrupt a class in an unacceptable manner.
