These General Terms and Conditions (GTC) apply to all courses, rentals, offers and agreements, the entire business relationship and contract management between Kite Club Corfu (hereafter referred to as KCC) and its customers.
Any person who is able to swim for fifteen minutes in the sea and has no health problems is eligible to participate in kite surfing courses. If the participant has known health issues (e.g., asthma, diabetes, allergies, etc.), the instructor must be informed prior to commencing the course. Each participant must have valid health insurance and appropriate liability or accident insurance. The instructions of the KCC staff are to be followed at all times.
Courses & Rentals
Registration & Payment
Course registrations will be confirmed in writing. If the participant is not yet of legal age, the written consent of the legal guardian is required. The booking only becomes binding for both parties after a deposit of €50/participant has been paid. Deposits must be paid into our bank account. Details are part of the booking confirmation. The balance is to be paid on site before the start of the lesson and can be paid in cash or by credit card. A processing fee will be charged for on-site credit card payments.
Any cancellation by the participant must be made in writing. If you cancel in writing up to fourteen days before the start of the lesson, the deposit will be refunded. In case of later cancellation, the deposit will be retained. There will be no refund if the participant does not appear or cannot be reached.
If the KCC decides that wind or water conditions are not suitable for training, an alternative date or an alternative program will be offered to the full extent.
In the event of force majeure (storm, illness, theft, etc.), KCC reserves the right to withdraw from the contract without notice. In such cases, participants cannot assert any claims for cancellation or compensation. Any amounts paid will be refunded.
Duty to Cooperate
The participant is obligated in case of any performance disruption to do everything reasonable for him, in order to contribute to a correction of the disturbance and to keep the possible damage as small as possible.
Duty of Care
KCC ensures its operational readiness through regular checks of the material. Nevertheless, every participant/renter is obliged to check the equipment before starting the journey and to report any damage that occurred before the start of the journey or during the journey. If the operational readiness of the equipment is no longer guaranteed due to non-observance of the instructor’s instructions or due to negligent or intentional behavior on the part of the participant/renter, the participant is not entitled to compensation for the time lost due to the factual assessment and troubleshooting.
Kite Surfing Lessons
In the case of unexcused absence or voluntarily cancellation of lessons, no compensation for the missed course can be claimed. In the case of deliberate or negligent damage to the school equipment, the participant is personally liable for replacement of the damaged equipment.
The rental of kitesurfing or windsurfing equipment is only after presentation of a corresponding certificate of competence (for example, VDWS Level 4 and more, IKO Level 3 K and more, etc.) If the participant does not possess a license, but maintains he/she possesses the appropriate skills, KCC reserves the right to assess the competence of the participant for a fee.
If, after the rental period has started, a lack of qualification nevertheless emerges (violation of the rules of driving, endangering other beach visitors or participants in water sports), KCC reserves the right to collect the material and end the rental period. Already made payments will not be refunded.
For all rentals, the renter is liable for replacement of lost or deliberately damaged material at its current value. Any deposit paid will be deducted pro rata for such damage.
KCC is responsible for the correct and careful execution of the course as well as the execution of the contractually agreed services. Each student is insured by KCC for the damage caused to third parties during lessons. The liability of students for other students is not insured. The student is required to carry sufficient medical insurance for medical costs as well as for disability in the case of an accident. The KCC disclaims all liability in the event of accidents. For the damage or loss of personal equipment or material, KCC assumes no liability.
Personal data is only collected and stored if participants/tenants voluntarily contact KCC in the context of an order, booking or registration. By providing an e-mail address, the customer agrees to receive notices of order, booking/registration and information material via e-mail until further notice. This consent can be revoked at any time by e-mail to email@example.com. During class, photos and videos may be taken. By participating in the courses, the participants grant KCC the right to use the photos free of charge for further advertising purposes. If a participant does not agree with the publication of material on which he/she is visible, the right of use can be revoked at any time by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The invalidity of an individual provision in this document does not result in the ineffectiveness of the remaining provisions of the General Terms and Conditions (GTC).
KCC reserves the right at any time to change the contents of the General Terms and Conditions as well as their website.
