General Business Terms and Conditions for seminars, training and instruction of Dräger Academy of Dräger Safety Norge AS (referred to as the "Company")


(Status: June 2015)

1       Scope

1.1   Only these General Business Terms and Conditions (the "Terms") apply to all performances of the Company connected with the seminars, trainings, instructions and other events (the "Events").


1.2   Deviations from these Terms require written confirmation of the Company. Deviating terms of the customer are not valid unless the Company has agreed to their validity in writing. These Terms apply even if the Company with knowledge of other conditions of the customer renders services without reservation.

2       Holding the Event

2.1   The Event will be conducted by the Company under the "Dräger Academy" name. Under this name, the Companies listed in the title of these Terms carry out independent Events organised by the respective Company. The Companies do not act jointly or as a partnership or joint venture of any kind with regard to these Events.

3       Prerequisites for participation

3.1   Participation in the Events of the Company requires in part sufficient physical fitness and strength. At certain Events, stress is generated artificially for a controlled demonstration of how to respond in case of danger. Contact the Company early to find out about the actual requirements of any given Event. The Company specifically does not assume any liability for injuries or damages incurred due to poor physical condition of the participant.

4       Registrations, cancellations

4.1   Registrations of customers become binding upon receipt by the Company. However, a binding contract arises only after confirmation by the Company.


4.2   The data of the registration are electronically stored and processed by Company in accordance with the Norwegian personal data act (act no. 31 of 14 April 2000) for the purpose of managing and informing customer of current and upcoming Events relevant to customer.


4.3   Customer hereby consents to Company providing customer with information about upcoming Events relevant to customer. Customer may at any time request Company to stop sending information on future Events.


4.4   The customer may at any time send a notice to the Company requiring it to stop the processing of data on the registered customer and purge its systems for all such data and/or stop sending information to the registered customer and request access to such information. The customer however acknowledges that if such notice is sent prior to the Event, this may prevent the customer from participating in the Event.



4.5   Registrations and contracts may be cancelled free of charge up to four weeks before the start of the Event. If a cancellation is received after this time, up to one day before the Event, the Company reserves the right to demand 50% of the registration fee. The day when the Event starts is not counted when calculating the time limits. Later cancellations and no-shows of the customer entitle the Company to demand the full registration fee. Partial attendance at an Event does not entitle to a rebate. The right to participate becomes null and void upon cancelling. All cancellations by the customer must be in writing. If the customer has already paid a registration fee, the Company will refund the amount which it is not entitled to retain as a result of the cancellation. Other cancellation rights of the customer remain unaffected.


4.6   The Company is entitled to cancel or reschedule Events for organisational or technical reasons, particularly in case the specified minimum number of participants has not registered or in case of unexpected absence or non-availability of the lecturer or a speaker. The Company is obliged to inform the customer without undue delay of any cancellations or rescheduling. In this case, the Company will attempt to reschedule the customer on a different date or a different venue, if the customer agrees. Otherwise, the contract becomes null and void and already paid registration fees will be refunded. Further claims do not exist subject to Section 7.

5       Registration fee, hotel, travel expenses and meals

5.1   The registration fee applies only to those services mentioned in the description of the Events. Unless stated otherwise, the registration fee does not include applicable value added tax.


5.2   Costs for accommodation and meals, as well as travel expenses for the participants are not included in the registration fee.


5.3   The registration fee is payable upon receipt of invoice.

6       Copyrights

6.1   All Event materials are copyrighted. They may not be reproduced, distributed or communicated to the public without the prior consent of the Company or except as otherwise written on the relevant Event material.

7       Liability

7.1   The Company is only liable in the event of wilful intent (forsett), gross negligence (grov uaktsomhet) on the part of governing bodies or executive employees, culpable injury to life, limb or health, defects maliciously concealed by Dräger Medical or the absence of which was guaranteed by the Company, as well as in the case of safety deficiencies of delivered products in accordance with the Norwegian Product Liability Act (produktansvarsloven).


7.2   In the event of a breach of material contractual duties, the Company is also liable in the event of gross negligence (grov uaktsomhet) on the part of ordinary employees and for ordinary negligence. Liability for ordinary negligence shall be limited to foreseeable damage typical of this type of agreement or relationship. Material contractual duties are duties the customer may rely upon as a necessary pre-requisite for his own performance of the agreement.


7.3   The customer must take all necessary and reasonable measures to prevent or limit damage. The customer must especially provide for a regular backup of programmes and data. For the recovery of data, the Company is therefore only liable under the provisions of Sections 7.1 and 7.2 if the customer has ensured that such data can be reconstructed from other data material at a reasonable cost and with reasonable effort.


7.4   Further claims or damage claims other than those specified in this Section 7 against the Company or its agents are excluded regardless of the legal reason.

8       Jurisdiction and applicable law

8.1   Any disputes with respect to any matter arising out of or relating to this agreement shall be subject to the jurisdiction of Norwegian courts and submitted to Oslo District Court.


8.2   The relationship and the agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Norway. English legal words and expressions shall be subject to Norwegian legal interpretation.
