As a User of the App, you are helping us develop an intuitive, user-friendly, and useful application. We want to hear your feedback on the App, and your ideas are important to us.
When you send, submit, post, or display any User Content such as feedback, survey answers, etc. through our App or any of its services, you assign us any and all non-exclusive license in all intellectual property rights that you hold or may hold in that content and, where not assignable, waive any moral rights you may have for that content.

All User Accounts are concluded for an indefinite period. A basic Account is provided free of charge and can be terminated at any time by both parties.

Fee-based premium accounts are charged in advance on a monthly basis. Those accounts can be terminated with a 14-day notice at the end of the month by both parties. The termination can be executed by deleting the User Account in the settings of the App or by notice to firstname.lastname@example.org. Conclusion of a premium account is facilitated via in-app purchases and requires acceptance of the Apple App Store terms and conditions.
Prices are determined by the actual offer. Unless specifically stated otherwise, all prices include value added tax.
The right to terminate the user agreement for good cause remains unaffected.

To the aforementioned exceptions the statutory regulations remain applicable.
The use of the App in its „Basic“ version is permitted free of charge. To that extent, the application of the lending law is agreed, analogously if not directly applicable: We are only responsible for intent and gross negligence. The liability for defects is limited to cases where we fraudulently conceal a legal defect or a defect in the App or its services; in this case we are liable to compensate the User for any damage arising from this. We are not liable for ordinary or simple negligence. We do not assume any duties of conduct towards the User, for the negligent violation of which we may be liable.

We are not responsible for disruptions of services due to force majeure (in particular: strikes, lockouts, instructions by public bodies, natural disasters, failure of communication networks or gateways, disruptions in the services of carriers).
