Cancellation by the participant

The cancellation or the rebooking or amendment of a booked trip has to be made in writing. The participant has to pay a specific cancellation fee. Cancellation fees are based upon the travel price (TP). The following cancellation fees apply:

Cancellation
up to 60 days prior to journey 40€
from 59 to 30 days prior to journey 20% of the TP
from 29 to 15 days prior to journey 50% of the TP
from 14 to 4 days prior to journey 80% of the TP
from the 3rd day prior to journey 100% of the TP

Thereby, the time of receipt of the cancellation letter is decisive for the mode of calculation.
Before the commencement of the travel, the participant can also either provide a replacement that meets the requirements of the organizer or rebook to another date. Therefore, a fee of 25,00 Euro will be due. The participant can provide proof, that he/she sustains a minor loss or no loss at all.

If you are organizing a group of individuals and booking on their behalf you, as group organizer accept, on behalf of each individual, the duty to provide payment.

Cancellation by SST/ WS

In case that the journey cannot take place due to "force majeure" (like epidemics, thunderstorms, catastrophes, wars, strikes etc) or in case of unacceptable conditions or danger for the client and in case of not reaching the respective minimum attendance up to 2 weeks prior to arrival, the organizer has the right to cancel the travel contract with immediate effect. Payments that have already been settled by then will be refunded immediately. Participants are not entitled to any further claim or recourse in regard to compensation.

Liability

On the basis of the duty to take care, the organizer is liable for a precise preparation of the journey, a careful choice of services and the correctness of the specified services. The organizer is not responsible for any misfortunes, any obstructions of traffic, delays or possible consequential costs that might occur for the participant. Participation in services provided by SST/ WS  is at participant’s risk. If other companies are instructed with carrying out additional services, then these companies take over liability for claims in connection with these services. Property belonging to the participant is at all times the responsibility of the participant. SST/ WS is not liable for the loss or damage of property belonging to the participant. All equipment is to be handled properly. Participants are liable for damage/loss due to negligence. The liability of the organizer for contractual claims of the participant/client for any non-physical damages is limited to the triple of the travel price. This regulation applies to the case that the damage on the participant has been inflicted neither intentionally nor grossly negligent. During the term of the journey, the participants are accompanied by SST/ WS personnel.

Instructions of the team need to be obeyed. If any participant threatens the realization of the journey by constantly making trouble or even being a danger to himself or to others, the organizer has the right to cancel the travel contract (in case of underaged even without consulting the parents or legal guardians) and exclude the participant from the journey. The participation fee will not be refunded.

Risk

By signing the contract, the legal representative or another authorized person (of the under-aged client) gives permission (to the client) to take part in sport activities. Any participation in sport classes is at the client's own risk. Participants must possess a strong ability to swim and appropriate athletic ability. The participant declares expressly that there are no existing medical conditions that would adversely impact the undertaking of surfing or any other (athletic) activities which he/she participates in. SST and WS would like to draw your attention to the elevated level of risk entailed in surfing (accidents may lead to injuries, disabilities or even death). Since SST and WS does not exert any control over your mastery of these sports, SST and WS does not assume any liability. Participants bear the full responsibility for accidents, loss inflicted on themselves or third parties or fatal accidents.

Insurance and travel documents

Each client gets an "insurance voucher" (after paragraph 615k BGB) - please keep it safe. Additional insurances are - as long as not announced at the relevant services - not included in the travel price. All travel documents will be passed on to the client 10 days prior to the journey.

Insurance

Participants are responsible for all associated insurance coverage. Personal accident insurance is not contained in the price. It is recommended that participants carry insurances that covers accidents and health issues incurred abroad (international insurance coverage) and travel cancellation expenses and luggage insurance.

Specific information

We advise our clients that a valid ID and a valid vaccination card always have to be carried with when travelling through Europe. When travelling to non-European countries, travelers need to take a valid passport in place of the ID. In case of not carrying those documents, the relevant country can deny entry. At the "exchange-days" when the arrival of the new guests and the departure of the leaving guests merge, the necessary cleaning and the proper preparation of rooms  might lead to delays of availability.

Changes of programm

In the interest of SST/ WS and our clients, we reserve the right to change the itinerary or specific services agreed upon if unforeseen events render it necessary.

Use of pictures, use of data, data privacy

The client agrees to be photographed throughout the journey at various activities and sport events. Furthermore, the taken pictures can be used for commercial purposes of SST/ WS. This consent can be cancelled any time in written form.
The client also agrees to the commercial use (e.g. market research, marketing) of his/her personal data (stock data). With regard to the registered data of the clients, SST/ WS as the organizer always acts in compliance with the regulations of data privacy and media law.
Particularly, personal data is kept in confidence. Again, this consent can be cancelled any time in written form. If so, the use of the client's data (as described in this paragraph) will not take place.

Invalidity of particular regulations

The invalidity of particular regulations of the travel contract or of the terms and conditions do not imply the invalidity of the entire travel contract.
