(“Terms of Use”)

European Nutrition Leadership Platform is an internet-based platform (“Platform”) run by [European Nutrition Leadership Platform] (“ENLP”) available on http://enlp.eu.com, for the registration for our courses and trainings e.g. ENLP Essentials Programme and ENLP Advanced Programme (“Course”). The Platform aims primarily at professionals working in the field of nutrition and health. But also, it is open to all food, nutrition and dietetic professionals across Europe who want to become more effective at managing non-scientific/soft-skill challenges such as communication, interpersonal skills, leadership and strategic influence (“User”, “you”). ENLP does not participate in the content related exchange between the Users. Due to the academic environment of the Platform, ENLP aims to keep a healthy balance between the free flow of information and intellectual property rights, keeping the best interests of its Users in mind. ENLP is aware that the Users of the Platform expect all personal data conveyed to ENLP to be handled with utmost care.
Our basic principle: the User has complete control over the content posted by him or her (such as files, discussions, links, etc.). ENLP will use the data provided by its Users solely for the purpose of providing a reliable and useful service. Further information on handling personal data of Users can be found in our Privacy policy.

ENLP expects its Users to display the same level of care in dealing with the personal and intellectual property rights of other Users and rights holders. To ensure a productive and safe work environment, it is indispensable to adhere to some general principles.

By registering for the Course at the Platform the User agrees to accept the validity of and ensure compliance with these Terms of Use. The User can read and print, download and save these Terms of Use at any time, even after the conclusion of the agreement on the Platform’s website by following the link Terms of Use.

A gender-sensitive language is one of the basic communication principles at ENLP. However, when it comes to official wording and legal terminology this is unfortunately not always possible. We therefore apologize for instances of failing to fully adhere to the standards of gender-sensitive writing in the following Terms of Use. Of course, we continue to do our best wherever we can to write and speak in a gender-sensitive manner.

Term ‘consumer’ means every natural person who enters into a legal transaction for a purpose that is outside their trade, business or profession.

6.2. Revocation Instructions

  • Right of revocation
    You have the right to revoke your contractual acceptance within 14 days in text form (e.g. letter, fax, e-mail) without stating your reasons for doing so. The period begins on receipt of this notification in text form, but not before the contract has been concluded. Revocation shall be considered timely if the notice of revocation is dispatched within the above period. The revocation must be addressed to:
    ENLP Board
    c/o Prof. Renger Witkamp
    P.O. Box 17
    6700 AA Wageningen
    The Netherlands
  • Consequences of revocation
    In the event of a valid revocation, services received on both sides are to be returned including any emoluments taken (e.g. interest). If you are unable to return or restitute parts or all of the services received as well as the emoluments (e.g., benefits of the use), or are only able to return or restitute them in a deteriorated condition, you will have to compensate for the loss of value where applicable. This may mean that you nevertheless have to fulfill the contractual payment obligations for the period prior to revocation. Obligations to refund payments have to be fulfilled within 30 days. This period begins when you dispatch your notice of revocation, for us, upon receipt of the notice.

15.2. The contractual relationship with Users, these Terms of Use and their interpretation shall be governed solely by the laws of the [the Netherlands]. The application of [the Netherlands] International Private Law and the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is excluded.
