If we cannot offer at least 70% of the lectures of a subscription, a course or a session, you are entitled to an extraordinary termination with immediate effect. In such a case you will have to address the termination in text form to M Events Cross Media GmbH, Felix-Wankel-Straße 1 82152 Krailling or by e-mail to In this case we shall refund you the pro rata subscription fees but no further compensation for damages.
