General Terms and Conditions



GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (AGB)


GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (AGB) for the freefall course
Even in spite of careful schooling, the use of state-of-the-art materials and the employment of all available safety equipment, a significant residual risk can not be eliminated from parachuting as a sport. The weakest link in the chain is not technology, but the human factor. Even the most enthusiastic skydivers must always be aware of this and make a realistic assessment of their personal limits and skills. In order to avoid misunderstandings and disputes, we ask you to carefully read the following terms and conditions, which you accept as binding by signing your application.

§ 1 Registration

Applications may be sent via internet or regular mail to the following address:
Fallschirmsportschule Saar GmbH
Flugplatz,
D-66798 Wallerfangen,
tel.: +49 6837 74136,
fax: +49 6837 7080116

§ 2 Fees

Registration is subject to a fee of EUR 320.00 (VAT included). This full amount of the registration fee is credited at the beginning of the course. Course fees are payable at the beginning of each segment of the course. After receipt of invoice, payments can be made in cash or via wire transfer.

§ 3 Prices

Current valid prices for our different courses can be found at www.fsz-saar.de in the price section. Prices do not include fees for possibly required refresher jumps, extra schooling, admission fees for the parachuting association of the Saarland (FSV Saar e.V.) or license fees payable under the provisions of the German parachuting association (Deutscher Fallschirmsportverband e.V.).

§ 4 Cancellation / Non-appearance

If the course is cancelled by the participant, regardless time and motive, but in particular because it turns out that the participant is unfit for the course or exceeds the permissible maximum weight, we will charge a cancellation fee in the amount of the registration fee. The same holds if the participant fails to appear to the booked course. The participant is explicitly granted the opportunity to provide documentation that in their individual case, the appropriate amount (to settle accrued expenses) is lower than the amount of the registration fee.

§ 5 Course

The training follows the requirements of the German parachuting association (Deutscher Fallschirmsportverband e.V., DFV). Course details and schedules will be determined according to individual requirements and communicated to the participant no later than two (2) weeks before the start of the course. If during the course, the participant misses a material learning objective associated to a training jump, the participant may be required to repeat the respective jump. The decision to repeat a jump lies with the training personnel of Fallschirmsportschule Saar GmbH.

§ 6 Interruptions

If the course is interrupted due to force majeure, e.g. adverse weather conditions, official orders or orders by the airfield operator, technical problems or security risks, the participant is not entitled to damages or reimbursements. Any such claims are only effective if Fallschirmsportschule Saar GmbH (hereinafter also referred to as the “School“) are responsible for the interruption.

§ 7 Continuation

If a course can not be completed as originally scheduled due to the reasons specified in above § 6, the participant may continue such interrupted course at the agreed conditions within a period of twelve (12) months from the starting date of the course. If the participant interrupts the course due to reasons other than those specified in above § 6, participant may still continue such interrupted course within a period of twelve (12) months. However, the School will in such case charge an extra schooling fee according to the expenses accrued during such interruption. Also in such cases, the reimbursement of fees is explicitly excluded.

§ 8 Transferability

Booked services, in particular booked training courses, can not be transferred to other persons, except for gift certificates issued by the School.

§ 9 Provision of services

Unless specific dates for the provision or services have been agreed, the School may at their own discretion determine such dates. The determination of dates is subject to reasonable discretion, and the School will try to consider the participant’s requests where possible.

§ 10 Third-party services

The School assumes no responsibility with regard to the provision of external third-party services.

§ 11 Insurance

The School has effected the following insurance services required under air traffic law:
1. Statutory third party liability insurance for owners of parachutes.  (Coverage: EUR 1.5 million for damages to persons or property.)
2. Non-personal aviation accident insurance for training parachutes. (Insurance sum in the event of death: EUR 5,000.00; insurance sum in the event of invalidity: EUR 10,000.00. In order to provide the participant with additional insurance cover under membership in the Saarland parachuting association (Fallschirmsportverband Saar e.V.), we provide training courses only to active members of the association. Any further personal insurance cover lies within the responsibility of the participant. In addition, the School offers the participant the opportunity to become a member of the German parachuting association (Deutscher Fallschirmsportverband e.V (DFV).). DFV members have access to attractive conditions for special accident insurance exceeding the insurance cover described above.

§ 12 Disclaimer

Except for cases of gross negligence or intent on behalf of the School, the participant hereby waives all claims against the School resulting from accidents or other detriments incurred by the participant during or in connection with their parachuting activities, both inside and outside of aircraft, on airfield grounds or otherwise related to aircraft.

§ 13 Liability

The participant is liable for any damages caused by them, unless air traffic laws define other liabilities. Liability claims resulting from the violation of statutory provisions or from gross negligence or intent on behalf of the participant are fully borne by the participant. In such cases, participant will also bear any due excess payments.

§ 14 Exclusion

Under certain conditions, the School may exclude the participant from further courses for substantial reasons. Such exclusion does not constitute grounds for any claims on behalf of the participant. In this context, substantial reasons include, inter alia: Lack of fitness for the purpose of parachuting; violation of statutory provisions under air traffic laws or other laws or directives relevant for the School; further the intentional or grossly negligent endangerment of the participant themselves or of other persons or objects. If the School determines that the participant is unfit for the purpose of parachuting, the participant will be reimbursed an appropriate portion of the course fees, to be determined on the basis of expenses already incurred by the School.

§ 15 Gift certificates

In accordance with statutory limitation provisions, gift certificates remain valid for a period of three (3) years from the date of issue. Gift certificates are non-personal and can therefore be transferred to other persons while valid. Refunds for gift certificates are excluded at all events.

§ 16 Severability

If individual provisions of this document should be or become partially or entirely invalid, then this shall not affect the validity of the respective remaining provisions. In such case, the partners will replace the invalid provision with a legally valid one matching as closely as possible the economic purpose of the original wording and taking into consideration both partners’ interests. The same holds in the event of unanticipated gaps in this document.

Warranty does not include parts subject to wear and tear or defects resulting from faulty handling, excessive use or external factors.
