The Customer is obliged to log in to the Student Zone at the beginning of the course. The Customer is obliged to keep the login data confidential and not to disclose them to other persons.

IX. CANCELING CLASSES
9.1. The School and Teacher who conducts the course makes a reservation of the given term for each Client and does not accept other orders during this time. Due to the individual nature of the classes offered to the Client, canceling classes by the Client is related to the loss of income of the Teacher and the School.
9.2. The Client is entitled to a free cancellation of classes only in exceptional situations, reporting it first to the Teacher, and then to the School Office. A one-off free break in classes cannot be longer than 2 weeks and cannot cover more than 50% of classes planned for a given month. Such notification must be submitted no less than 24 hours before the planned lesson. Classes canceled in less than 24 hours before the lesson or in excess of the indicated limit are always fully paid.
9.3. The number of lessons canceled by the Client is registered. A Client who frequently cancels more than 25% planned classes for each month, loses the possibility of free cancellation of classes.

If the Customer does not agree to these conditions, the course will be closed without notice.
9.4. Holidays and public holidays are not included in the record of canceled lessons by the Client. They are statutory days free.
9.5. In exceptional situations and with the consent of the School Director and the Teacher who conducts the course, the School provides the opportunity to make up for the canceled lesson on a different date. However, taking into account all permanent and newly reporting customers, this possibility cannot be overused because it leads to confusion in schedules of teachers and school rooms.

9.7. In the case of lessons canceled by the Teacher, the School may propose a replacement with another Teacher or make a lesson with the Teacher conducting the course at another time if it is possible. The Client may accept or refuse the offer.
9.8. Due to the fact that payments for classes are made in advance for the entire month, a free cancellation of the lesson results in a reduction of the value of the invoice for the next month in accordance with the value of the canceled lesson.
X. CHANGE OF CLASSES TERMS
