General delivery and payment conditions Leather fashion academy based and with offices in Amsterdam.

Article 1: Application and enrollment

Application is made by submitting either the completed and signed application form or the form on our site.

The date of receipt counts as the registration date.

Registration via both forms are considered binding.

Article 2: Admission and selection

Leather fashion academy determines which students will be admitted. This includes the criterion that the student demonstrably possesses the qualities necessary to follow the course and, for that matter, also meets the requirements that can be set regarding the starting level. If more participants apply for a course than can be placed, in addition to eligibility, the order of application will be held and the remainder will be offered a place on the next course with the same content.

If fewer participants register for a course than the required minimum number, 4 people, Leather fashion academy is entitled to cancel the course without the student being entitled to any compensation. Any course fees already paid will be refunded within two weeks. If the course fee has not yet been paid (in full), Leather fashion academy reserves the right to give priority to other registrants who have paid.

Article 3: Course year, training and short courses

The course year runs from the first full week of September through the last week of June. Vacations and holidays will be announced on the first day of study. Lessons missed by the student can be made up if they are cancelled 24 hours in advance, provided it is organizationally possible. If it is not organizationally possible then the missed classes expire and there is no right to make up. Other courses and workshops take place on the dates indicated via the website.

Article 4: Costs and payment

The price of the trainings, course / workshop is listed on the website. The trainings, courses and workshops are exempt from VAT from August 1, 2019 because we are registered with the CRKBO. Published prices are always subject to change. The course fee can only be paid by bank transfer.

Article 5: Reflection period and cancellation and early termination

There is a 14-day reflection period after registration but no later than the start of the course.

Within 14 days of the registration date, the registration may be withdrawn without further reason, provided that the course has not yet started. Such withdrawal must be in writing. If the tuition is paid within the reflection period then the tuition will be refunded within two weeks.

After this two-week reflection period, the student will owe at least  €25 registration fee. In case of cancellation or early termination during the course, there is no right to a refund of the course fee.

Article 6: Force Majeure

Leather fashion academy reserves the right to replace the original instructor. In case of illness, the supervisor will find replacement dates for the missed classes within the respective course year. Leather fashion academy reserves the right to reschedule a course/training in the event of insufficient enrollment. With what is said in the above paragraph, Leather fashion academy is deemed to have sufficiently fulfilled its obligations towards the student and therefore the student is not entitled to further compensation.

Article 7: Interest and costs

If the course fee due is not paid, the student will first receive a payment reminder. Should payment not occur, a reminder will be sent and the amount due will be increased by at least €12.50 in administrative costs. If the amount mentioned in the above paragraph has not been credited to Leather fashion academy's account within 10 days of the date of the reminder, the student will be in default and Leather fashion academy may pass the claim to a collection agency. Collection costs are the responsibility of the student. The student must also pay legal interest from the date the student is in default.

Article 8: Dissolution
