Terms & Conditions

widescape, owner Robert Wünsch ("we"/"us") offers a service via a mobile app ("app") as well as via the website www.hellomeet.co ("website") that helps users ("users"/"you") schedule meetings ("schedule meetings") and exchange content ("messages") via chat ("chat"). The app and the website constitute a "service".

  1. § 1 Applicability and Changes

    1. The functionality provided as part of the service, including scheduling, chat and the display of text messages generated by users, is provided exclusively on the basis of these General Terms and Conditions ("GTC").

    2. We reserve the right to alter the GTC with future effect. However, we will only make changes for valid reasons, including but not limited to, new technical developments, enhancements to our services, changes in the law or jurisdiction, or other equivalent reasons. We will not make any changes that would lead to a significant imbalance in the rights and obligations arising under the contract. In addition, all changes require your consent.

    3. You agree to receive information about any changes to the Terms and Conditions when you log into the website or use the app, or via text message.

    4. Changes shall be deemed to have been accepted if you do not object in writing or via text (that is, by email or text message) within four (4) weeks after accessing the service ("objection period"). We will mention this possibility when notifying you of changes.

    5. If you do not object to the amended GTC within the objection period or if you continue to use the service after being notified of changes, the amended or enlarged GTC shall become effective for you.

    6. If you object within the prescribed time, you and we have the right to terminate this agreement in the normal way and to delete the account after an appropriate period of notice. Whenever we notify you of changes, we will mention that you have the opportunity to object and terminate, and we will make special mention of the time limit and the legal consequences of failing to object.

  2. § 2 Registration and Use

    1. To use the service, you must register with your mobile number and open an account ("account"), or you must accept an invitation from another user. You are responsible for ensuring that the information you supply when registering and creating your account is true and complete.

    2. You commit to sending messages only to telephone numbers owned by people you know personally. You accept that you are only entitled to send messages to these persons because they have consented to receive your messages. You also certify that you are authorised to provide us with the telephone numbers.

    3. You agree not to use the service to send messages that are offensive or libellous, immoral, pornographic, morally objectionable, indecent, sexist, extreme right-wing or left-wing, or that glorify violence or violate any laws, particularly laws for the protection of minors and intellectual property (esp. copyright) laws. You undertake not to use the service to send links to such content.

    4. You agree not to use the service to engage in or promote any anti-competitive activity, including canvassing (such as chain letters, snowball or pyramid schemes).

    5. If you breach any of the obligations described in this section, we may delete and terminate your account without notice.

  3. § 3 Transfer of Rights of Use

    Solely for the purpose of providing the service, namely transmission and display of messages, and to the extent necessary for this purpose, you agree to grant us for the duration of our contractual relationship the non-exclusive, royalty-free right of use of the contents of messages, particularly for the purpose of sharing, distributing, processing and displaying on your terminal device. Apart from this, we do not acquire any rights to the content of your messages.

  4. § 4 Liability

    1. You are directly liable for any violation of the rights of third parties for which you are responsible. You undertake to compensate us for all damages arising from your non-observance of the obligations arising from these General Terms and Conditions. You agree to indemnify us from any loss or damage suffered by third parties whose rights have been violated by messages sent by you or due to a breach of any other obligations. You also take responsibility for our costs in defending against such claims, including all court and solicitors' fees. This does not apply if you are not responsible for the breach.

    2. We and our associated telecommunications and network service providers shall not be liable for any damages whatsoever arising from the use or non-use of the service, including in particular damages due to any interruption to or failure of the service. This includes, but is not limited to, any warranties of title, integrity, merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose with regard to the availability, accuracy, reliability or content of the service. We are not liable for any direct, indirect, accidental or consequential damages arising out of the use or inability to use the website or app and the services they provide. This also applies if we have been informed of the possibility of such damage occurring. Unlimited liability for damages caused by intentional or gross negligence due to culpable injury to life, body or health remains unaffected. This also applies to mandatory liability under the (German) Product Liability Act.

    3. Our liability for breach of material obligations (obligations which are of particular importance for achieving the performance of the contract) shall be limited to damages that are reasonably foreseeable and that arise naturally in the ordinary course of events, provided that we are not accused of wilful breach of contract. We shall only be liable for the loss or destruction of the participant's data up to an amount equivalent to the typical cost of recovery when regular and appropriate backups have been carried out.

    4. In all other respects, any liability for damages on our part, irrespective of the legal basis, is excluded.

  5. § 5 Cancellation

    You and we may terminate the contract at any time without notice. The right to termination without notice for good reason remains unaffected.

  6. § 6 Final Provisions

    Any revisions or additions to this GTC, including to this clause, must be made in writing.
