(2) Weber allows you to book your course participation directly and with binding effect through the Weber website, which can be reached at the URL www.weber.com. The Weber Grill Courses described on the website are not binding offers of Weber, but are mere invitations to submit an offer. Participants who have found the item they want can place this item in the shopping basket without entering into any obligation by clicking on “shopping basket”. If a Participant wishes to register other participants for a Weber Grill Course, he must enter the names of the other participants. The Participant can view and edit the contents of the shopping basket at any time by clicking on the basket. If the Participant wants to proceed to a binding booking, he must click on “Go to Checkout”. To make a booking for a scheduled course, participants must create a user account. To do so, please enter your details. After entering the relevant details, Participants can proceed with the order process by clicking on “Create Weber ID”.

Here, Participants can check their selection and details once again. After accepting these terms and conditions of participation, Participants can complete the ordering process by clicking on “Buy Now” (Place binding order)]. The booking for a Weber Grill Course is a legally binding offer to conclude a contract for participation in the respective Weber Grill Course.

(3) Transactions will be processed in general on a first-come, first-served basis.

(4) Bookings will be accepted only if there is still a sufficient number of places available for the Weber Grill Course in question. Weber will send Participants a registration confirmation to that effect as well as an invoice; however, we expressly point out that the Weber Grill Course will only run if a minimum number of applications for participation are received (see section 5 - Requirements for holding the event). The registration confirmation is at the same time our acceptance of your booking; hence, a legally binding contract for participation in the respective Weber Grill Course is concluded upon receipt of the statement.

4 Course fee/Payment terms

(1)The course fees may vary depending on the type of Weber Grill Course concerned. For the course fee, please see the relevant course information on the website. All prices include VAT.

(2) The course fee does not include any other expenses on the part of Participants (e.g. costs for transportation, accommodation and meals at a hotel).

(3) The course fee may be paid by various methods: direct debit, credit card or other payment methods indicated in the order. Weber reserves the right to exclude certain payment methods on a case-by-case basis. For more information about the various payment terms, please see "Payment Methods” on our website, at https://www.weber.com/IE/en/meta/payment-methods/nav42.html.

(6) Transfers between different Weber Grill Courses are not permitted. If a Weber Grill Course is cancelled, the costs for the Weber Grill Course will be refunded, and Participants must book a new Grill Course through the Weber booking system.

5 Requirements for holding the event

(1) As a matter of principle, Weber Grill Courses take place only when at least 12 people have registered for the event. If fewer than 12 people have registered, Weber will decide if the event is to take place nevertheless. A different minimum number of participants may be indicated in the course description for a specific Weber Grill Course. If the minimum number of participants indicated in the course description differs from the above number, the number stated in the specific course description will prevail.

(2) If a Weber Grill Course is cancelled, Weber will refund any course fees already paid.

(3) If an ongoing Weber Grill Course ends prematurely for reasons within Weber's sphere of responsibility, a pro rata refund will be given.

(4) Weber and/or the owner of the premises where the course takes place reserve the right of admission.

(5) Participants are obligated to notify the Partner conducting the Weber Grill Academy at the latest five days before the start of the Weber Grill Course about any existing allergies, health impairments, illnesses etc. that will or may adversely affect the Participant and/or other participants of the Weber Grill Course.

7 Limitation of liability

(1) Unless otherwise stipulated below, Weber will be liable in accordance with the general statutory provisions. Unless the Parties expressly agree otherwise elsewhere, the following provisions shall apply to all claims for damages irrespective of the legal grounds. 

(2) Weber does not exclude or limit in any way our liability to the Participants where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by Weber’s negligence or the negligence of Weber’s employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of the Participants  legal rights in relation to the products including the right to receive products which are: as described and match information Weber provided to the Participant and any sample or model seen or examined by the Participant; of satisfactory quality; fit for any particular purpose made known to Weber; supplied with reasonable skill and care; and for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

(3) Weber is responsible to the Participants for foreseeable loss and damage caused by Weber. If Weber fails to comply with these terms, Weber is responsible for the loss and damage the Participant suffers that is a foreseeable result of Weber breaking the contract or Weber failing to use reasonable care and skill, but Weber is not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both Weber and the Participant knew it might happen.

(4) Weber is not liable for business losses. If the Participant uses the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose Weber will have no liability to the Participants for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

9 Substitution

Participants may send a substitute in their place to attend the course.

10 Postponement/Cancellation of Weber Grill Courses

(2) If the minimum number of participants is not achieved, the Weber Grill Course will be cancelled at least ten days before it is due to start.

(3) If the Weber Grill Course is postponed or cancelled, Participants are entitled to withdraw from the contract. Course fees already paid will be refunded in full.

The contact details of the Partner conducting the grill course are provided in the description of the respective Weber Grill Course.
