In case of lack of attendance or (personal) incapability of the chairman or a faculty member, SDCA reserves the right to cancel or postpone a SDCA course, or move a SDCA course to another location.

In case of cancelling a SDCA course due to reasons SDCA is responsible for, prepaid registration fees will be refunded but any other claims against SDCA, the chairman and the faculty members of the SDCA course are excluded.
