The subject of this license agreement is the free use of the Synch System Web Application (hereinafter referred to as “The Sync System App” or “App”) offered by Us.

To exercise the right of withdrawal, You must communicate to us at sync@mahlkoenig.com of Your decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement [e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or email]. You may use the model withdrawal form as stipulated in clause 14.4, but it is not obligatory.

14.2 Effects of Withdrawal

If You exercise your right of withdrawal, We shall reimburse You for all payments We have received from You, including delivery costs (with the exception of additional costs resulting from the fact that You have chosen a type of delivery other than the most favorable standard delivery offered by Us), without undue delay and no later than within fourteen days from the day on which We received the notification of your withdrawal from this contract. For this repayment, We will use the same means of payment that You used for the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise with You; in no case will You be charged for this repayment.

We may refuse to refund You until We have received the goods back or until You have provided proof that You have returned the goods, whichever is the earlier.

If it is agreed that We will provide a service to You and that this service is to begin immediately after the conclusion of the contract or during the withdrawal period, You shall pay Us a reasonable amount corresponding to the proportion of the services already provided up to the point in time at which You notify Us of the exercise of your right of withdrawal with regard to this contract compared to the total scope of the services provided for in the contract.

In the case of a contract for the delivery of digital content that is not stored on a physical data carrier, the right of withdrawal shall also expire when We have begun performing the contract after You have given Your express consent and confirmed at the same time that You were aware that You would lose Your right of withdrawal as soon as We had begun performing the contract.

15.2 The exclusions set out in clause 15.1, do not apply in the event of injury to life, body or health. Liability under the German Product Liability Act remains unaffected.

18.2 Links to such websites or resources do not imply Our endorsement of such third-party websites.

19. Third-Party App Store

19.1 The following additional terms apply to You if You download the App from a Third-Party Store. To the extent the other terms of these Terms are less restrictive than or otherwise conflict with the terms of this clause 19, the more restrictive or conflicting terms of this clause 19 shall apply, but only with respect to the App and the Third-Party Store. You acknowledge and agree as follows.

19.2 These Terms are entered into solely between you and Us and not with the Third Party Provider, and we (and not the Third Party Provider) are solely responsible for our App and its content.

19.3 To the extent these Terms provide rules of use for the App that are less restrictive or inconsistent with the applicable terms of use of the third party from which You obtain the App, the more restrictive or inconsistent term of the third party will prevail.

19.5 The Third Party Provider has no warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the App, and any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to the failure to honor any warranty are our sole responsibility.

20. Miscellaneous

20.1 The contract language is English.

20.2 If You were domiciled or habitually resident in Germany at the time the contract was concluded and have either moved out of Germany at the time We file suit or Your domicile or habitual residence is unknown at that time, the place of jurisdiction for all disputes shall be the registered office of our company in Zürich.

20.3 These Terms constitute the entire agreement and understanding between You and Us and supersede any prior agreements between You and Us relating to the subject matter of these Terms.

20.4 We reserve the right to change or modify these Terms with future effect. We will notify You of the changes by email no later than two (2) weeks before the new version of these Terms is scheduled to take effect. If You do not object to the application of the new version of these Terms within this period and continue to use the App, the new version of these Terms will be deemed accepted. In the event that You object, We expressly reserve the right to extraordinarily terminate the contract between You and Us. We will also separately inform You again about Your right to object, the objection period and the legal consequences of Your objection or failure to object.

20.5 These Terms and all rights and obligations arising hereunder shall be governed exclusively by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany, excluding the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG), if You have Your habitual residence in Germany or Your habitual residence is in a country that is not a member of the European Union. In the event that You have Your habitual residence in a member state of the European Union, the applicability of German law shall also apply, whereby mandatory provisions of the state in which You have Your habitual residence shall remain unaffected.

20.6 Should individual provisions of this contract be or become void or ineffective in whole or in part, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. The invalid provisions shall be replaced by the statutory provisions, if any. If such statutory provisions are not available in individual cases (e.g. in case of a regulatory gap) or would lead to an unacceptable result, the Parties shall enter into negotiations to replace the non-included or invalid provision with a valid provision that comes as close as possible to it in economic terms.

20.7 The European Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution (OS) at http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/21. Our email address is sync@mahlkoenig.com
