Terms of Use

Date: 1. September 2016

We are delighted you’ve decided to use our products and services, all of which we refer to simply as the “Service.”

We have tried to strip the legalese from the Terms of Use, but there are places where these Terms may still read like a traditional contract. There is a good reason for that: These Terms of Use form a legally binding contract between yourself and ianu; and affect your legal rights and obligations. Please read them carefully.

By using the Service (website, app and any other services) you are agreeing to be bound by the following terms and conditions (“Terms of Use”). The service is owned by or under the control of ianu. If you do not consent to be bound by all of these Terms of Use, do not use or access the Service.

The likelihood may arise that we offer temporary special features that have their own Terms of Use, which then respectively apply to these Terms. In situations where a conflict arises between the relevant, the specific conditions of the special functions are binding.

Time constraints for claims

Governing Law and Jurisdiction

These Terms are governed by the laws of the country Austria excluding the private international law and will be interpreted in accordance therewith. You agree to clarify any dispute that you have with ianu exclusively before a court in Salzburg, Austria, and you will abide by the jurisdiction of the courts in Austria.

 

If any provision in these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed appropriately separated from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. Failure by ianu on the exact implementation or enforceability of each provision of these Terms shall be construed as a waiver of any provision or right.

You are prohibited from avoiding the Terms of Use or any rights as well as transferring any obligations under this Agreement voluntary or by law whether completely or partially without the prior written permission of ianu. Any attempted assignment or transfer of rights without the appropriate prior written consent of ianu is ineffective. ianu may assign these Terms or any rights under this Agreement without your consent. Should any of these Terms be found to be unenforceable, invalid or otherwise by a court of competent jurisdiction, the parties agree that this part be deemed severed from these Terms of Use and does not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions; the other provisions of the TOS remain in full effect and in force. Neither the conduct between the parties nor trade practice causes a change in the terms of use. These Terms grant any third party any ownership.
