With your online registration you agree to the direct debit and the SEPA Mandat is executed.
The registration fees will be debited around the beginning of the following month. You will receive an e-mail some days before. Through the binding booking and the related confirmation of registration and participation conditions of the Sports Department of Hochschule Fulda, you accept the new SEPA Core Direct Debit.
In case of a failed direct debit due to uncovered, wrong or invalid account the bank charges administrative fees up to 5,- € per debit attempt, which we pass on to you. So please, fill in with caution!
