This GTC are an integral part of all contracts that Donhauser Ventures concludes with its contractual partners, costomers or users (hereinafter referred to as "Customer") offered within the framework of the Venture Classroom in detail (Donhauser Ventures and Customer hereinafter individually the "Contract Partner" and jointly the "Contract Partners".

1.2 These GTC shall also apply to all future deliveries, services or offers made to the Customer within the framework of a permanent contract of use of the services provided by Donhauser Ventures (hereinafter referred to as "Term Contract"), without these GTC having to be agreed separately in each individual case. Unless otherwise agreed, these GTC shall apply in the version communicated upon conclusion of the Term Contract.

1.3 These GTC shall apply exclusively. Deviating, conflicting or supplementary general terms and conditions of the Customer or third parties shall only become part of the contract if and to the extent that Donhauser Ventures has expressly agreed to their validity in writing. General terms and conditions of the Customer or third parties shall therefore not apply subject to Donhauser Ventures 's express consent, even if Donhauser Ventures does not separately object to their application in individual cases or refers to the exclusive application of these GTC. The consent requirement shall apply in any case. Donhauser Ventures 's reference to a letter containing or referring to the general terms and conditions of the Customer or a third party, as well as the unconditional performance or delivery in knowledge of the general terms and conditions of the Customer or a third party, does not constitute an agreement with the validity of those general terms and conditions.

1.4 These GTC apply in addition to individual contracts or offers provided by Donhauser Ventures. If and insofar as agreements made with the Customer in individual cases (including collateral agreements, supplements and amendments) contain deviations from these GTC, these shall in any case take precedence over these GTC. The remaining provisions of these GTC shall remain unaffected.

1.5 If written form is required in these GTC, § 126 BGB (German Civil Code) shall apply. Unless individual provisions of these GTC expressly provide otherwise, the transmission of a copy of the respective document by telecommunication, in particular by fax or as a PDF copy by e-mail, shall be sufficient to comply with the formal requirement, provided that the copy of the signed declaration(s) is transmitted.

1.6 References to the applicability of statutory provisions shall only have a clarifying significance. Even without such clarification, the statutory provisions shall therefore apply unless they are directly amended or expressly excluded in these GTC.

All lecturers in the Venture Classroom are trained specialists in their field. However, the Venture Classroom does not constitute legal or tax advice. In individual cases, you should always consult a lawyer or tax advisor.


3.1 The presentation, display or advertising of articles on the VentureClassroom website does not constitute a binding offer to conclude a purchase contract, but an invitation to order the products described. By sending an order online by pressing the order button or similar, the Customer places a legally binding order. The contract is concluded as soon as Donhauser venturessends an order confirmation. A contract is only concluded above the minimum order value. This can be found in the online shop.

3.2 The content of the contract is usage of the products displayed and selected via the order form and payment of the respective fees. The relevant content is determined by the individual contract for the ordered goods, quantity and price as stated in the order confirmation.

The Customer shall be entiteled pay the agreed fee via PayPal.

If a payment is made via PayPal, the Customer must have a PayPal account and legitimise himself with his PayPal access data. The Customer must then go through the PayPal payment process and confirm the payment to Donhauser Ventures. Using the PayPal payment method, payment can also be made without a PayPal account via the guest function. With regard to the PayPal guest function, the terms and conditions available via the payment method apply. If the Customer selects payment by credit card in PayPal, he/she may be asked for a required second authentication feature by displaying the website of the credit institution, depending on the amount of the payment or the type of delivery. The Customer must then verify the payment transaction with his personal second authentication feature such as password, PIN, TAN or biometric data such as fingerprint or face scan using a special online banking app. The contractual relationship between PayPal and the Customer is governed exclusively by PayPal's terms of use.

If the payment deadline is exceeded more than three times, this shall constitute an important reason in the sense of §§ 314, 626 BGB (German Civil Code) and shall entitle Donhauser Ventures to terminate the term contract without notice if Donhauser Ventures cannot reasonably be expected to adhere to the contract, also taking into account the other circumstances. Already accrued claims shall remain due for payment in the event of termination of the contract.

4.7 Offsetting with counterclaims of the Customer or the retention of payments due to such claims is only permissible insofar as the counterclaims are undisputed or have been legally established.

In this case, liability is limited to compensation for the foreseeable, typically occurring damage. In the event of a grossly negligent breach of non-essential contractual obligations, Donhauser Ventures shall only be liable to entrepreneurs to the amount of the foreseeable, typically occurring damage.

5.5 The liability for damages resulting from injury to life, body or health and according to the Product Liability Act (Produkthafungsgesetz) shall remain unaffected by the aforementioned limitation of liability.

5.6 As the operator of the services, Donhauser Ventures is not liable for incorrect information or content provided by the Customers. Donhauser Ventures does not check the content posted on the website (in particular with regard to the infringement of third party rights).

This shall apply irrespective of whether the Customer has its registered office in Germany or abroad.

Amendments to these Terms of Use shall be offered to the Customers in text form (e.g. by e-mail) no later than 30 days before the proposed date of their coming into effect.

10.2 Should any provision of these GTC or any provision incorporated in them in the future be wholly or partially invalid or unenforceable or subsequently lose its validity or enforceability, the validity of the GTC shall not be affected thereby. The same shall apply if contracts between the contracting parties contain a loophole. In place of the ineffective or unenforceable provisions or in order to fill the gap, an appropriate provision shall apply which comes as close as possible to what the contracting parties intended or would have intended according to the meaning and purpose of the contract if they had considered the following point when concluding this contract or when adopting a provision at a later date

10.3 Claims in connection with these Terms of Use arising from consumer protection standards can be filed either in Germany or in the EU member state in which the Customer lives. The European Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution, which the Customer can find at
