If the user wants to use a mobile app to use the Services, he can find out at https://www.branture.de whether the Provider offers a mobile app for his terminal device or for the operating system of his terminal device. If a Service is subject to a charge, this is explicitly indicated.

The use of the Services does not require registration. Using the basic functions of MeClubApp is initially possible without registration. A registration in MeClubApp can be done later.
No registration is required to use the paid services. A registration can be made at a later date. Registration requires the user to enter his e-mail and a password. Registration is only possible via the mobile MeClubApp. During registration the user is asked to accept these General Terms and Conditions and the Privacy Policy. After successful registration, a confirmation email is sent, asking the user to verify the registration by clicking on the "Confirm Account" field. After confirming the field, the user will be redirected to a website where the registration will be finally confirmed. Only then is the registration process complete. The user assures that all data submitted during registration is complete and truthful.

1.5.

By registering with MeClubApp, the user accepts these Terms and Conditions for the use of the Services. If the user accesses the Services via App and has downloaded MeClubApp from the App Store of a third party or accesses the content via an audio/video or assistant platform (such as Google Home), the respective terms and conditions of the App Store or platform shall apply in addition; in the event of contradictions, these Terms and Conditions shall take precedence.

1.6.

When downloading and using MeClubApp, especially in third party networks or abroad, the user may incur transmission costs of his Internet access provider.

The use of MeClubApp for commercial or other commercial purposes is expressly prohibited.

 

  1. Services with costs

2.1.

Some Services of MeClubApp require the payment of a fee. The scope of the Services contained in MeClubApp and usable by the user depends on whether and which Services are used free of charge or against payment. If the Services are used free of charge, the user has access to certain basic functions and information of the respective Services. An extended range of functions is available to the user if the Services are activated for the user as part of a subscription. MeClubApp provides an overview of the available paid Services, their fees, scope of services, restrictions and terms in MeClubApp. Payment of the fee only entitles the user to access the Services available or visible in the offer presentation. All of the fees mentioned are understood to include the applicable value-added tax.

2.2.

The individual steps of purchasing paid Services can be found in the descriptions within the third party App Store, MeClubApp or the website https://www.branture.de. With an order the user makes an offer. Just by pressing the order button no purchase contract for the paid content is concluded. Only after successful payment and the corresponding electronic confirmation, the order is considered accepted and the sales contract is concluded. Acceptance can also be implied, in particular by activating the chargeable services.

2.3.

MeClubApp offers the option to unlock the entire content of MeClubApp with one payment. The MeClubApp offers subscriptions with different minimum terms. With the activation of the paid content the user receives the right to use it permanently for his own, non-commercial purposes on all devices connected and compatible with his App Store account. Any further use - in particular publication on the Internet, as well as the unauthorized copying, distribution or making available of the contents via the Internet, whether free of charge or against payment - is not permitted. The same applies to transcribing the contents, removing copyright information and source references as well as other editing or manipulation of the download. The granted rights of use are not transferable or sublicensable and are subject to full payment. Uses permitted by copyright law are not restricted.

The Provider is entitled to revise, update or otherwise change the content at any time if this should be necessary for technical, legal or content reasons.

The Provider shall keep all purchased digital data available for download for a reasonable period of time. However, unlimited data backup and data availability cannot be guaranteed. The user should therefore save his downloads locally on connected end devices in parallel. The user will be informed expressly and in advance if the content can no longer be made available for download by the Provider.

2.4.

The payment methods shown in the offer are accepted; the payment process is usually operated by appropriate service providers. These may include in particular the payment systems offered by the respective App Store operators. As far as the respective service provider includes its own general terms and conditions of business or terms of use (GTC) in individual cases, these are exclusively valid for the payment process. If applicable, the user must have a user account with the service provider.

2.5.

The Provider of the App Store can influence the duration or renewal, or their available paid services. Depending on the App Store, fee-based services may expire at the end of the agreed term without requiring a termination, or the respective contract term may be extended indefinitely or for a corresponding period of time. Details can be found in the terms and conditions or the respective offer presentation of the App Store. The App Store offers the possibility to terminate paid services via a corresponding menu item.

2.6.

If fees cannot be collected and if the user is responsible for the event causing the collection, the user shall bear all costs arising therefrom. If payments made are charged back or the user fails to pay fees, MeClubApp is entitled to block all or access to individual services from MeClubApp.

2.7.

The Provider can offer paid services to users for a certain time free of charge. Which user can participate in a test offer is at the sole discretion of the Provider. The Provider may change the scope of Services of the test offer or terminate the provision of a test offer at any time. 

2.8.

The Provider reserves the right to change its business model at any time and, for example, to provide certain or all Services only against payment. The respective fees are published in the MeClubApp. The user is free to terminate the use of the Service or to decide to continue using the Service for a fee.

2.9.

We reserve the right to assert further claims for default of payment.

The Provider is liable without limitation for intent and gross negligence. The Provider shall only be liable for simple negligence if his vicarious agents or legal representatives violate an obligation that is essential for achieving the purpose of the contract (so-called cardinal obligation). In this case the liability is limited to the foreseeable damage. This shall amount to a maximum of the fee paid by the user for the use of the paid Services and functions. The aforementioned limitation of liability does not apply to damages due to the absence of warranted characteristics, to injury to life, body or health, or to claims under the Product Liability Act.

    The user is solely responsible for content that he uploads within the Services. The Provider does not adopt them as his own and does not check them.

Insofar as the subject of the user contract is free services, both parties may terminate the user contract at any time. For this purpose, the user will find a corresponding account deletion function in his account settings on the website and in the app. Termination is also possible by mail (Branture 01 GmbH, Pappelallee 78/79, 10437 Berlin, Germany) or by notification to the e-mail address support@meclub.app

The user can use the Services even after termination until the end of the respective period.

  1. Final Provisions

11.1.

The Provider is trying to enable a trouble-free operation of MeClubApp and to keep it available as much as possible. However, it is pointed out that a complete or uninterrupted availability is technically not feasible. Therefore, the Provider does not guarantee a trouble-free operation or a certain availability. Furthermore, there is no claim to the maintenance of individual functionalities of the App itself that are used free of charge. The Provider is - as long as there are no contractual obligations to the contrary - entitled at any time to change or remove content, services and functionalities provided within the MeClubApp and to make new content, services and functionalities available or to stop developing the App as a whole. In this respect, the Provider also reserves the right to issue separate terms and conditions for new service offers or to add and change free additional features.

11.2.

The current Terms and Conditions of MeClubApp, which are deposited with the order, apply. The Provider is entitled to change these GTC at any time with effect for the future, provided that this is necessary for objective reasons, in particular due to changes in the law or in the highest court decisions, changes in economic conditions, technical changes or further developments, changes in market conditions or other equivalent reasons, and provided that the user is not unreasonably disadvantaged by this. Changes to the General Terms and Conditions of Business will be pointed out at a suitable place within the offer or by e-mail at least 14 days before the change is made in good time. Every user has the right to object to the new terms of use. If the user objects to the changes, the Provider is entitled to terminate the contract without notice. 

11.3.

The Provider is entitled to entrust third parties with the provision of the agreed Services, in whole or in part, at any time. Furthermore, the Provider may transfer his rights and obligations to one or more third parties.

11.4.

Agreements between the Provider and the User that deviate from these GTC must be in text form in order to be valid; this also applies to a waiver of the written form requirement.

11.5.

The place of jurisdiction is Berlin, if the user does not have his domicile or usual place of residence in Germany or moves there or if the user is not a consumer in the sense of § 13 BGB. MeClubApp is also entitled to sue at the user's general place of jurisdiction.

11.6.

German substantive law shall apply to the exclusion of the referral rules. If the user is a consumer and has his habitual residence in a member state of the European Union, nothing in the terms of use limits the right of the user to invoke the application of a mandatory local law or a jurisdiction that cannot be changed by contractual agreements. In this case, the ineffective provision shall be replaced by the effective and feasible provision whose effects come closest to the economic objective which the parties to the contract had pursued with the ineffective or unfeasible provision.

11.7.

Should any provision of these terms and conditions be or become invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining clauses. In this case, the invalid or unenforceable provision shall be replaced by the parties by a valid provision which comes as close as possible to the economic purpose of the invalid or unenforceable provision. The same applies in the case of a loophole in the regulations.

 

  1. Data Protection
