Claims from intellectual property rights

We respect the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that your intellectual property rights have been used in a manner that gives rise to concern of infringement, please follow our procedure for notifying us of infringement.

Copyright and database rights

All content included in or provided through any of our web pages or online services, such as text, graphics, logos, button icons, images, audio clips, digital downloads, and data compilations, is our property or third parties supplying content or making it available on the website and is protected by German copyright and database right laws.

You may not extract, reuse and/or publish any part of our website or service without our express written consent.

Payment policies

When you initiate a payment through any link provided on our website, you acknowledge your comprehensive understanding and explicit acceptance of the Terms and Conditions associated with the service you are purchasing. This acknowledgment means you have either thoroughly reviewed the service conditions on our website or received detailed information about the service via email. It’s your duty to fully familiarise yourself with all aspects of the service before making a payment. By making a payment, you are declaring your agreement to these Terms and Conditions, confirming your informed consent and willingness to proceed under the stated provisions. We emphasise the importance of this informed decision-making process, as it forms the legal basis for the service agreement between you and our company.

Your responsibility as a customer is to settle payments for services using approved payment mechanisms, such as major credit cards and authorised online payment platforms; for this we use services such as Stripe or PayPal. By initiating a transaction, you warrant the provision of complete and accurate financial information and affirm your legal right to use your chosen payment method. All transactions are subject to rigorous validation and authorisation by the respective payment service provider. We reserve the exclusive right to alter or modify the accepted payment methods without prior notification, ensuring that our practices are in line with evolving regulatory standards and technological developments. This policy is designed to safeguard the integrity of financial transactions on our platform, ensuring a secure, efficient and transparent process for all parties involved.

Refund policies

Our Refund Policy aligns with your right to withdraw from a contract within fourteen days without giving any reason, ensuring compliance with European Directive 2011/83. Should you decide to cancel a service purchase, you must inform us via a clear statement (email or letter) within this period. Upon receipt of your cancellation, we will promptly confirm and process your refund using the same payment method as the original transaction, without imposing any fees. The refund will be issued within fourteen days of receiving your cancellation notice. This policy underscores our commitment to your satisfaction, adhering strictly to regulatory requirements and facilitating a transparent and secure refund process. Please note, that the right of revocation may not apply to consultation or customised services, software or downloadable products, and/or subscriptions involving immediate access to services, among other specific conditions outlined in European law.

Limitation of liability

We shall have unlimited liability to the extent that the cause of the damage is based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by us or a legal representative or vicarious agent of us.

Furthermore, we are liable for the slightly negligent breach of essential obligations. Essential obligations are obligations whose breach jeopardises the achievement of the purpose of the contract or whose fulfillment makes the proper execution of the contract possible in the first place and on whose compliance you regularly rely. In this case, however, we shall only be liable for the foreseeable damage typical for the contract. We are not liable for the slightly negligent breach of obligations other than those mentioned in the preceding sentences.

Insofar as our liability is excluded or limited, this shall also apply to the personal liability of employees, representatives, and agents.

Changes to these Terms of Use

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to make changes to this website and its services, rules and regulations, terms and conditions, including these Terms of Use, at any time.

If a revision is material we will make reasonable efforts to provide at least 30 days notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion.

You are subject to the Terms and Conditions, Contract Terms, and Terms of Use in effect at the time you use this website and its services. If any of these Terms are held invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that provision shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

By continuing to access or use our website or service after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms. If you do not agree to the new Terms, in whole or in part, please stop using the website and the service. If you violate these Terms of Use and we do nothing about it, we will still be entitled to exercise our rights on any other occasion on which you violate these Terms of Use.

No waiver

If you violate these Terms of Use and we do nothing about it, we will still be entitled to exercise our rights on any other occasion on which you violate these Terms.

Jurisdiction and applicable law

If you have any concerns or disputes about the use of our website or service, you agree to first try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting us.

The law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply exclusively to differences of opinion and disputes on the occasion of this contract, to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
