2.2 The applicability of any general conditions of the Client is explicitly rejected. If one or more provisions in these terms and conditions at any time should be partly or entirely declared null and void, all the remaining provisions of these terms and conditions will still fully apply.
2.3 An agreement for the provision of a course is formed by the Client submitting an application by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, as well as ‘Leer Arabisch’ sending a proof of registration to the Client by e-mail. The submission of an application (as mentioned in the previous sentence) implies the acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.

3.2 ‘Leer Arabisch’ reserves the right to change the location of the Courses when needed.
3.3 Subscriptions will be processed in order of receipt.
