The validity of the FITNESS-CLUB CARD for young people over 16 years of age is limited from the outset to the period of validity of the FITNESS-CLUB CARD of their parents.
USERS can use the childcare for their children between the ages of runnable and 6 years free of charge. The presence of a parent/guardian in the USE AREAS is required at all times during the childcare hours.
Childcare capacity is limited to approximately 10 children per caregiver.
The OPERATOR reserves the right, in order to protect the health of all children in care, not to admit children in the event of illness. This is especially true in the case of contagious childhood diseases such as mumps, measles, rubella, whooping cough, or in the case of infectious symptoms such as gastrointestinal virus or scarlet fever.
It is ultimately up to our caregivers to decide whether or not they can care for a child.

§ 2 SPECIAL PROVISIONS
1. FITNESS AREA
The use of the equipment can only take place after instruction by the designated staff. The OPERATOR reserves the right to hold the USER liable for any costs incurred in the event of improper use and resulting damage. Used equipment and objects are to be put back in their designated place after use.
For hygienic reasons, a towel is to be taken along for each equipment and course training session and placed on the seating and lying areas of the equipment or sports mats.
Every member is free to participate in the courses, but the number of participants in the courses is limited for safety reasons. Registration is required for individual courses.

Classes are offered for different fitness levels. Participants are encouraged to select appropriate classes based on their fitness level.
Sports bags are not allowed in the fitness area.
The instructions of the trainers and course instructors must be followed. Violations will result in a ban from the premises.
Squash courts can be booked at the reception for an extra fee. Individual squash bookings are accepted by phone or verbally. Individual squash bookings can be made 7 days in advance. Permanent bookings require written confirmation by the OPERATOR. The OPERATOR reserves the right to change the assigned court number in individual cases for internal reasons or, if the assignment of another court is not possible, to use assigned courts for special purposes (tournaments, repairs, etc.) against credit of the court rent.
The fee for the squash booking must be paid in advance at the reception. The basis for this is the respectively valid price list, which can be found on the notice board in the KAIFU-LODGE. The OPERATOR is entitled to adjust the prices at any time.
Cancellation of single squash bookings is only possible up to 24 hours before the playing date. If a booking is returned within 24 hours, the fee will be waived in case of a new rental.
One squash hour lasts 45 minutes. Decisive for the change is the clock located in front of the courts. It is not permitted to continue playing even on courts that happen to be free beyond the booked time. For each additional 45 minutes or part thereof, the OPERATOR is entitled to charge a full fee.
The fee for a squash booking includes the use of the court by two players. If additional players participate in a booking, they will have to pay an additional half court fee per person.
The player is liable for all damages caused by him or by fellow players invited by him to the property of the OPERATOR. For broken rental rackets a replacement amount of € 5,00 will be charged, in case of loss of the racket € 10,00.

Please note that cuts could be a health risk. In the sauna and when using the loungers, a sufficiently large towel must be placed underneath. It is forbidden to cover the loungers with towels.

4. CHANGING ROOMS
Lockable lockers for clothing and bags are located in the locker rooms. We ask that items brought to the locker room always be placed in a locked locker. Care must be taken to keep locker keys in a safe place. Please use the option of wearing the locker keys as a wristband. If the locker key is lost, a fee of € 20.00 will be charged. The OPERATOR cannot be held responsible for lost valuables and damages.
The lockers are to be emptied after use and left unlocked. The storage of items in the lockers overnight is not permitted. The lockers will be checked and emptied - there is no obligation on the part of the OPERATOR to return them.
After showering, the changing rooms may only be entered after drying off.
5. PARKING PLACE
The use of the parking lot is at your own risk. The OPERATOR assumes no liability for this. Winter maintenance is limited on the access roads and sidewalks. Vehicles may only be parked by USERS* of the USE AREAS of KAIFU LODGE for the duration of use. Bicycles, mopeds and the like are to be parked in the spaces provided for this purpose. Unauthorized parked vehicles as well as vehicles that are not parked in the designated parking zones will be removed with costs.
§ 3 LIABILITY
Entering the AREAS OF USE including access roads, parking lot and outdoor area as well as the use of all equipment and the aforementioned AREAS OF USE and participation in the courses is at the USER'S*INNER'S* own risk. The same applies to the childcare and children's courses offered by the OPERATOR. In particular, the OPERATOR is not liable for the loss of valuables, even if they were included.
Excluded from this limitation of liability is the liability for damages resulting from injury to life, body or health as well as guarantees or claims under the Product Liability Act. Furthermore, liability for the breach of obligations, the fulfillment of which makes the proper execution of the contract possible in the first place and on the compliance with which the customer may regularly rely (cardinal obligations), shall remain unaffected. The same applies to breaches of duty by the legal representatives and/or vicarious agents of the OPERATOR. In all other respects, the pre-contractual, contractual and non-contractual liability of the OPERATOR of its legal representatives and/or vicarious agents is limited to intent and gross negligence. The liability is basically limited to the amount of the liability insurance sum taken out by the OPERATOR, as far as the law does not prescribe a mandatory further liability.
Insofar as the OPERATOR is liable within the scope of the aforementioned limitations of liability for damages in the area of the swimming and sauna area operated by Bäderland GmbH, the liability is limited to the amount of the liability insurance sum taken out by the OPERATOR, but at most to the maximum compensation limit according to the bathing regulations of Bäderland GmbH, insofar as the law does not stipulate any mandatory further liability.
