A.       A.   General Terms and Conditions of Use (GTCU)

Preamble

Hominext is an innovative application that allows landlords, tenants and/or flat-sharing residents to network with each other. We help by publishing not only classic offers of living space (place offer), but also personal housing requests (tenant offer). Our focus is on "matching" providers and seekers in the best possible way on the basis of their personal characteristics. However, our true strengths become apparent after the successful match, because Hominext has much more to offer on the topic of housing.

The use of Hominext requires the opening of a Hominext User account with cerebo GmbH, which the User can access via the Hominext web portal, the mobile Hominext website or via the mobile Hominext app (hereinafter uniformly referred to as Hominext or Hominext platform).

On the one hand, our aim is to enable you to search, offer, organise and plan attractive place offers and requests with networked Hominext Users and, on the other hand, to maintain a business relationship with you that is as long and fair as possible. However, in e-commerce, even we cannot avoid binding general terms and conditions of use - the so-called small print - that come across in somewhat technical legal language.

In accordance with our self-image, our general terms and conditions of use reproduced below pursue the goal of regulating our business relationship with you in a binding and fair manner:

1.    Subject of the contract; scope of application

1.1.  cerebo GmbH (for operator data see imprint: Impressum ) is the operator of Hominext (hereinafter referred to as the Operator) and offers consumers and entrepreneurs (hereinafter referred to as the User) access to and use of Hominext via the web and via mobile applications.

1.2.  These General Terms and Conditions of Use (GTCU) apply to all Users of Hominext with the first access to the free or paid services of Hominext. These GTCU are supplemented by the data protection notice, the notice-and-take/stay-down procedure and - if available - the price list in its current version.

1.3.  Counter-confirmations of the Users with reference to their own terms and conditions of business and/or purchase are hereby contradicted. Individual agreements remain unaffected by this.

1.4.  Users are entitled to use Hominext in accordance with the following provisions.

2.    Services; costs; collection of remuneration

2.1.  Hominext enables Users (consumers, entrepreneurs and companies) to present themselves and living space, to search for and find flatmates, to exchange and publish news, information and evaluations as well as to offer, execute and process housing-related services such as reservations and tenancy agreements (hereinafter collectively referred to as agreements). For this purpose, Hominext has an integrated, automated messaging and publishing system to facilitate User-to-User communication as well as extensive functionalities to initiate, manage and monitor ongoing actions.

2.2.  The services obtainable with Hominext consist of, among other things:

·      Provision of the usage options of Hominext after admission of the User pursuant to clause 3;

·      Provision of an electronic control board (dashboard) for the operation and use of Hominext;

·      Provision of the possibility to publish and maintain User profiles (landlord and / or tenant);

·      Providing the possibility to publish and maintain place offers and tenant offers;

·      Providing the possibility to initiate (inform, negotiate, handle) tenancy agreements;

·      Creation of information, communication and evaluation possibilities with links to dedicated publication channels;

·      Allocation of roles with different permissions including user accounts with paid subscriptions;

·      Provision of consulting and design services to (commercial) Users for a fee, in particular the creation of entries, advertising, advertisements, User profiles and place offers by the Operator.

2.3.  The costs and billing modalities for the subscriptions to Hominext and individual services and transaction costs can be found in the current price list on Hominext (web portal/app). The price list current at the time of the conclusion of the contract with the Operator (order) is decisive for the price determination of the individual services. In the event of a contract extension, the price list current at the time of the contract extension shall be decisive, provided that the User has explicitly agreed to the changed conditions by pressing a button or the commercial user (entrepreneur) has been separately informed of the changed prices by the Operator at least 14 days before the respective contract extension and continues to use the services without objection. The User shall be informed separately of the right of objection and the legal consequences of silence in the event of a price change.

2.4.  The Operator reserves the right to agree supplementary terms and conditions and prices for individual services, in particular for those to be provided to companies.

2.5.  All prices listed in the price list include the respective value added tax applicable in Germany.

2.6.  If additional services are purchased by paying a one-off amount, the remuneration shall be collected upon conclusion of the contract.

2.7.  Transaction cost contributions are levied and collected by the Operator upon payment of the remuneration by the User.

2.8.  When purchasing a subscription, the remuneration shall be collected in advance for the respective minimum term at the time the contract is concluded. If the subscription is automatically extended, the fee shall be collected in advance at the beginning of the respective extension period. This does not apply if the payment is made via Apple Pay; in this case, the payment is already collected 24 hours before the start of the respective billing period.

2.9.  If we integrate payment service functions in such a way that it is a payment initiation service within the meaning of section 1 para. 1 sentence 2 no. 7, para. 33 CISA or an account information service within the meaning of section 1 para. 1 sentence 2 no. 8, para. 34 CISA, the provisions of the CISA shall remain unaffected.

3.    Permission and usage requirements; registration; mobile apps and appstore

3.1.  The prerequisite for using Hominext is the registration and opening of a Hominext user account. This is possible either directly in the Hominext web portal or via the Hominext mobile application (app). In the course of registration, the User is requested by the Operator to accept the validity of these terms and conditions together with appendices such as the price list and data protection notice. After registration, the Operator first sends the User an e-mail for security reasons, in which the User authenticates his registration by clicking on the "Confirm e-mail" field or by entering the transmitted activation code with his e-mail address. The User is then redirected to Hominext, where the Operator can finally confirm the registration. Only after this the registration process is completed.

3.2.  How the respective contract is concluded depends on the way the User registers for Hominext for the first time and whether the User makes use of additional paid services:

·      When registering via the Hominext web portal, the contract of use is concluded after the registration process has been fully completed;

·      In the case of registration via mobile apps, the conclusion of the contract of use depends on the rules of the app store Operator. As a rule, the contract is concluded when the User clicks on the install button in the respective app store and, if required, enters his/her password for the respective app store. The use of the Hominext app nevertheless requires the opening of a Hominext User account independent of the respective app store;

·      By registering via social networks such as Google Sign-In, Facebook Connect or Log in with Twitter, the User authenticates himself, so that further registration is generally not required; the usage contract is concluded upon completion of the Facebook Connect registration process;

·      The User has the option of either purchasing individual additional services by paying a one-off amount or permanently within a subscription. The contract for these additional services is concluded via the Hominext web portal when the User clicks on the button "Order now with obligation to pay" or a comparable field and has successfully transmitted his payment data. If the User purchases the additional services via a mobile app, the contract is concluded when the User clicks on the "Buy now" button or a comparable field as part of an in-app purchase and, if required, enters his/her password for the respective app store.

3.3.  Only adult (=/> 18 years) consumers or entrepreneurs and companies are entitled to register as Users. When registering or placing an order without registration, the User must provide information about his or her status as an entrepreneur or consumer; all information must be truthful. According to the legal definition, a consumer is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes that can predominantly be attributed neither to his/her commercial nor to his/her independent professional activity. Entrepreneurs and companies are exclusively natural or legal persons or partnerships with legal capacity who, when using Hominext, act in the exercise of their commercial or self-employed professional activity (e.g. housing association, student union, etc.).

3.4.  The Operator reserves the right to check the plausibility of the data provided by the User and, in the event of a negative result, to immediately block the user account.

3.5.  There is no entitlement to admission to the use of Hominext. The admission shall cease to apply if the requirements for it cease to apply.

3.6.  The use of Hominext via a mobile application (app) requires the free download of our mobile app from an app store (Apple App Store or Google Play Store). For the download of our apps, the terms and conditions of the respective app store must be observed.

4.    Request and offers for private activities or commercial activities

4.1.  On Hominext, Users have the possibility to offer and enquire about place offers and tenant offers.

4.2.  Unless otherwise stated, place offers and tenant offers initiated by Users do not contain a legally binding offer, but only represent an invitation to Users to submit offers or to enter into contractual negotiations.

4.3.  Users have the possibility to select place offers and tenant offers according to individual criteria and to submit legally binding applications based on these.

5.    Design and processing of agreements initiated or concluded on Hominext (Rental Agreement Guideline)

5.1.  The arrangement and processing of agreements initiated or concluded via Hominext (reservation requests, tenancy agreements, termination requests) merely serve the principle of facilitated communication and are the sole responsibility of the respective Users. For these agreements, the Operator assumes neither a guarantee for fulfilment nor liability for material or legal defects of the places offered for rent. In particular, the details communicated by the Users and taken over on Hominext do not represent any properties guaranteed by the Operator. The Operator is under no obligation to ensure the fulfilment of the agreements concluded between the Users.

5.2.  The Operator does not guarantee the true identity and the power of disposal of the Users. In case of doubt, both contracting parties are required to inform themselves in an appropriate manner about the true identity and the power of disposal of the other contracting party.

5.3.  Hominext optionally offers the processing of tenancy agreements via a chargeable Trusted Check-Out functionality, by means of which it is ensured that payments are only disbursed to the landlord via an escrow account when the tenant has been able to make use of the housing offer.

6.    Own content, third-party content and your content

6.1.  On Hominext the User will find contributions and contents as well as service offers of the Operator and of external service partners. The User can also upload content and offers to Hominext.

6.2.  As a general rule, everyone is responsible for their own content. Therefore, it should always be recognisable to other Users who has posted the contributions and offers on the Hominext platform. For this reason, most content and especially offers and requests cannot be uploaded anonymously or pseudonymously on Hominext.

6.3.  The User is not permitted to upload information, content, images, videos, news and messages as well as files whose factual correctness is doubtful, which violate legal or official regulations, the rights of third parties, morality (e.g. because they are racist, sexist, discriminatory, inciting, pornographic, radical or otherwise offensive) or are infected by viruses to the Hominext platform.

6.4.  Furthermore, Hominext      contains links to websites/apps of third parties ("external links"). These websites/apps are subject to the liability of the respective Operators. Hominext has no influence on the current and future design and content of the linked sites. The inclusion of external links does not imply that Hominext adopts the content behind the reference or link as its own. It is not reasonable for the Operator to constantly monitor the external links without concrete evidence of legal violations. However, if we become aware of legal violations, we will immediately delete such external links and ensure as best as we can that illegal content known to us cannot be uploaded again. For this purpose, a report button or a report form is available in many places, by means of which corresponding notices and complaints can be transmitted to us. In this regard, the User must observe the notice-and-take/stay-down procedure and the provisions of sections 8 and 9 of these GTCU.

7.    Reviews

7.1.  Users have the possibility to give reviews about Users they have interacted with on Hominext.

7.2.  Publication on the respective Hominext User profiles shall only take place if both Users involved have rated each other on Hominext.

7.3.  Reviews should be honest but always respectful and may not contain any abusive criticism or insults. In all other respects, the provisions of sections 8-10 of the GTCU apply.

8.    Granting of rights of use by the Users to the Operator

8.1.  The ownership, property rights and copyrights to contributions and content, such as images,      texts incl. ratings and videos, which the User uploads to Hominext for the purpose of retrieval by other Users, remain with the User. To the extent necessary, the User grants the Operator a simple right of use for the purpose of retrieval and sharing (right of public access) by other Users on Hominext or within the scope of our mobile offers (apps) and/or for the offer of external service partners (third party providers), without us thereby making the User's content our own.

8.2.  It is the sole responsibility of the User to hold or acquire the necessary rights for posting content on Hominext. As a rule, the User only holds the necessary rights if he/she has created the content in question him/herself or has licensed it from the rights holder (e.g. photographer).

8.3.  The granting of rights according to section 8.1 is valid for an unlimited period of time, as long as the User cannot provide the Operator with any plausible reasons that make the continued retrieval of the content appear unreasonable for the future (e.g. due to serious disadvantages). The User can also delete or change some of the content he/she has posted (e.g. profile data). In this case, our simple rights of use end with the deletion of the content.

9.    Rights and duties of the Users

9.1.  The User is entitled to use the services of Hominext properly within the scope of the access possibilities granted to him by the Operator. He is obliged to refrain from illegal actions and misuse of the access possibilities to the system.

9.2.  The User is obliged to continuously check and update his User data for factual accuracy. Posted place offers, tenant offers, user profiles, reviews and other content may not violate legal or official regulations and/or the rights of third parties and/or morality (e.g. because they are racist, sexist, discriminatory, inciting, pornographic, radical or otherwise offensive). The Operator reserves the right to publish supplementary content guidelines for Users, which will become part of these terms and conditions upon publication.

9.3.  The User is solely responsible for content which he posts in the areas provided for this purpose (such as a description of residential premises or his/her requests with parameters for the tenant). The Operator does not adopt this content as its own and does not, as a rule, check this content on its own initiative - with the exception of random checks and suspicion checks without cause.

9.4.  Users only initiate serious place offers and tenant offers on Hominext and realistically assess the professional requirements of a housing opportunity in demand or the professional specification of their offered places and only make offers that they can fulfil.

9.5.  If the User is unable to keep a commitment due to changed circumstances, he shall inform the other User immediately.

9.6.  Insofar as the Operator creates and designs content (user profiles, place offers and tenant offers) on behalf of the User, the User is obliged to check the content - this applies in particular to the use of content and material originating from the commissioning User - to the best of his ability to ensure that all statutory or official regulations and/or the rights of third parties and/or common decency are observed. Publication shall only take place after express approval by the User.

9.7.  Users are entitled vis-à-vis the Operator - and are required to do so before legal proceedings are initiated against the Operator - to demand the blocking or removal of posted information, content, news and messages as well as files whose factual correctness is doubtful, violates legal or official regulations or offends common decency and infringes the User's own rights (notice-and-take/stay-down procedure).

9.8.  If a claim is made against the Operator by a third party or a User due to one of the violations mentioned in sections 9.1 to 9.7, the User responsible for the violation undertakes to indemnify the Operator against any claims. The obligation to indemnify refers to all expenses necessarily incurred by the Operator as a result of the claim by a third party. The Operator expressly reserves the right to claim further damages.

9.9.  The commercial user shall oblige its employees acting on Hominext in accordance with its obligations under these GTCU.

10.  Rights and duties of the Operator

10.1.The Operator undertakes to check its own editorial contributions and other services for topicality, factual correctness, completeness and safety to the best of its ability.

10.2.The Operator investigates complaints from Users and third parties about breaches of the rules and/or contract and notifications of any illegal content and decides what measures are to be taken in the event of breaches of the rules.

10.3.The Operator reserves the right to check posted information, content, news and messages as well as files for factual correctness, security and legal admissibility by means of random checks and suspicion checks on an ad hoc basis (in particular to exclude repeat cases).

10.4.The Operator reserves the right to remove posted information, content, news and messages as well as files, the factual correctness of which is doubtful, which violate legal or official regulations, the rights of third parties, morality or which are infected with viruses, after becoming aware of them - whether by self-discovery or by notice - and depending on the severity of the violation (as a rule with or (in serious cases) without prior hearing and notice to the posting User), whether by self-discovery or by notice - and, depending on the severity of the infringement in question, (as a rule) with or (in serious cases) without prior hearing and notice to the posting User, to block or remove the posting and to prevent it from being uploaded again as far as possible (notice-and-take/stay-down procedure). Claims derived from the removal of such illegal information or files cannot be asserted against the Operator.

10.5.If the User violates an obligation pursuant to sections 10.1 to 10.4, the Operator is entitled to delete the corresponding data or to withdraw access to Hominext in whole or in part. The same applies in the event of other serious breaches of contract by the User as well as on the basis of justified complaints by Users or third parties in accordance with the notice-and-take/stay-down procedure.

10.6.Insofar as the Operator creates and designs content (User profiles, place offers & tenant offers)      on behalf of the User, the Operator is entitled - unless otherwise agreed - to access all content (texts, images, graphics, animations, sounds) of the User's web presences (website, apps, portals) and to use these for the design of the commissioned entry. Publication shall only take place after express release by the User.

10.7.The content and technical design, in particular the form and content of Hominext, are exclusively at the discretion of the Operator. In this respect, the Operator reserves the right to discontinue, restrict, expand, supplement or improve all services offered free of charge at any time.

11.  Contract period; termination

11.1.The usage contract underlying these GTCU is concluded for an indefinite period and begins with the admission of the User by the Operator in accordance with section 3.

11.2.The User has the right to delete his Hominext User account at any time and without giving reasons and thus also to terminate his User contract. For this purpose, he only has to make the necessary settings in his profile. It should be noted that after deletion of the User account, all posted content and data will be deleted or could be deleted by the Operator and the User will also no longer have access to content already purchased. If, at the time of deletion of his account, the User is within the term of a paid subscription or has purchased an additional service which has not yet been used conclusively, there will be no refund of the remuneration - not even a pro rata refund.
The Operator is entitled to terminate the User contract including the User account without giving reasons with a notice period of four (4) weeks in text form. When exercising the ordinary right of termination, the Operator has the choice of whether to reimburse the User (pro rata) for the remuneration paid by the User for subscriptions and/or additional services that have not yet been terminated or to allow the termination effect of the termination to take effect at the earliest with the expiry of the service with costs that has been running the longest.

11.3.The contract periods of chargeable services and subscriptions are regulated in the Operator's price list. The User can terminate a paid subscription without giving reasons at any time with effect from the end of the minimum term or the end of the respective renewal period by making the appropriate setting in his User profile. Alternatively, the User can also cancel his subscription by sending an e-mail to service@hominext.com or by mail. If the fee for a subscription is collected via Apple Pay, a notice period of 24 hours to the end of the minimum term or to the end of the respective renewal period applies for technical reasons in deviation from the above.
The Operator is entitled to terminate a premium User account at the end of the minimum term or at the end of the respective extension period with a notice period of four (4) weeks in text form by e-mail to the e-mail address provided by the User.

11.4.In principle, the User account shall remain in existence in the event of the ordinary termination of a subscription.

11.5.    Each party has the right to terminate this contract for good cause without notice. An important reason for the Operator is in particular:

·      the serious breach of the provisions of these GTCU by a User;

·      the tortious act of a User or the attempt thereof;

·      delay in payment of more than 3 weeks despite reminder;

·      the opening of insolvency proceedings against the assets of a User or the rejection of the corresponding application to open insolvency proceedings for lack of assets.

11.6.The Operator's right to withdraw the User's access to Hominext in whole or in part pursuant to clause 9.4 remains unaffected.

12.  Guarantee of availability and functionality of services and refund of consideration; regulations under the DIRL

12.1.Hominext is generally provided with the quality, including functionality, compatibility, accessibility, continuity and security, which is usual for digital products of the same kind and which the User can expect, taking into account the nature of the digital product. The User has the opportunity to inform himself in detail about the existing functionalities, compatibility, accessibility, continuity and security of Hominext before concluding a contract with the Operator against payment and acknowledges the performance of the services in the manner and to the extent described as being in accordance with the contract.

12.2.In the event of non-availability of the service to a considerable extent (> 2% non-availability) for which the Operator is responsible, the consideration shall be refunded on a pro rata basis. The availability is calculated on the basis of the time allotted to the respective calendar month during the term of the contract minus the scheduled maintenance times and the downtimes which are not within the Operator's sphere of influence (force majeure, fault of third parties, etc.). During maintenance work, the aforementioned services may not be available for a short period of time. The scheduled maintenance work takes place outside the core working hours (Monday to Friday 08:00 to 18:00 CET).

13.  Liability; limitation of liability

13.1.The Operator shall be liable without limitation for intent and gross negligence. In the event of breaches of material contractual obligations caused by slight negligence on the part of the Operator or its legal representatives or its vicarious agents within the scope of this contract of use, the Operator's liability towards Users shall be limited to the foreseeable, direct average damage typical of the contract. An essential contractual obligation is any obligation which is necessary for the fulfilment of contractual purposes and on the fulfilment of which the User has relied or could have relied. In total, liability is limited to a maximum of 100,000 euros per liability case. Otherwise, liability is excluded.

13.2.Insofar as Hominext provides access to other websites via links, the Operator is not responsible for the third-party content contained therein. The Operator does not adopt the third-party content as its own. Liability for third-party content is excluded. If the Operator becomes aware of illegal content on external websites, the Operator will remove the link to these immediately.

13.3.The Operator is not liable for the factual correctness of data or for the legal conformity of content posted      in Hominext by Users or released to the Operator. The Operator does not adopt the external content as its own. Reference is made to the possibility of initiating a notice-and-take/stay-down procedure (clauses 9.4, 10.3, 10.4).

13.4.The above limitations of liability and exclusions do not apply to claims by Users arising from product liability. Furthermore, the limitations of liability do not apply to physical injury and damage to health of Users attributable to the Operator.

14.  Data protection

14.1.The Operator has taken comprehensive technical as well as organisational precautions to ensure the confidential and exclusively purposeful handling of data. However, the misuse by unlawful acts of third parties cannot be completely excluded.

14.2.The Operator undertakes to use the data stored during registration and use solely for its own purposes and not to pass it on to outside third parties, unless there is an obligation to do so imposed by the authorities or the User has given his or her express consent, e.g. by explicitly clicking on a publication button for social networks. This regulation on the handling of data is substantiated and supplemented by the data protection notice. In particular, the data protection notice regulates and explains the extent to which personal data is visible to other Users and what options the User has to control the disclosure to other Users.

14.3.The Operator undertakes to oblige its employees who are entrusted with the administration and/or operation of the Platform to strictly comply with data protection regulations.

14.4.When companies register as Users, the Operator is entitled, if necessary, to call up creditworthiness information on the basis of mathematical-statistical procedures from so-called credit agencies and to receive updated information for the purpose of its own credit check.

14.5.The Operator is entitled to observe and record the usage behaviour of Users in order to ensure the proper operation of Hominext and to combat abuse. Clause 14.2 applies accordingly to such data.

14.6.If the User enters personal data of another User, he assures that he is entitled to do so. The User is obliged to inform the User concerned of the transfer of his personal data.

15.  Copyrights and property rights

15.1.The Operator is the owner of all property rights, intellectual property rights and copyrights with regard to its own contributions and other own content.

15.2.The uploading User retains ownership, property rights and copyrights to contributions and content, such as descriptions of places, photographs, advertisement texts, etc., uploaded by Users within Hominext for the purpose of retrieval by other Users. To the extent necessary, the uploading User grants the Operator a simple right of use for the purpose of retrieval by other Users on Hominext, without the Operator thereby making the third-party content its own.

15.3.Clause 15.2 shall apply mutatis mutandis to entries designed by the Operator for Users but released by the User.

15.4.The User undertakes not to remove or obscure any copyright notices or other notices of the Operator or other Users regarding such rights contained on Hominext.

16.  General

16.1.The law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply exclusively to the exclusion of the reference norms of international private law (IPR) and the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). The exclusive place of jurisdiction is Bonn in the Federal Republic of Germany, insofar as the User is a merchant or a public corporation. In addition, the Operator is entitled and, in the case of consumers, obliged to bring an action at the User's general place of jurisdiction.

16.2.In case of doubt, the German text of these GTCU and its components shall take precedence over translations into other languages.

16.3.The invalidity of one or more provisions of this contract shall not affect the validity of the rest of this contract.

16.4.The supplementary components of these GTCU can all be accessed in the public area of Hominext.

16.5.These GTCU supersede and replace all previous GTCU. The Operator shall notify the User of any further amendments to these GTCU in text form by e-mail. If the User does not object to such amendments within 14 days of receipt of the notification, the amendments shall be deemed to be agreed, provided the User has explicitly agreed to the amended terms and conditions by pressing a button or continues to use the services provided by the Operator. The User shall be informed separately of the right to object and the legal consequences of silence in the event of an amendment to these GTCU.

of your decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or e-mail). You may use the attached model withdrawal form, but it is not obligatory.

To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired.

Effects of withdrawal:

If you withdraw from this contract, we shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from your choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract. We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement.

If you have requested that the services begin during the withdrawal period, you must pay us a reasonable amount corresponding to the proportion of the services already provided up to the time you notify us of the exercise of the right of withdrawal in respect of this contract compared to the total scope of the services provided for in the contract.

Expiry of the right of withdrawal:

The right of withdrawal also expires in the case of a contract for the provision of services if we have provided the service in full and have only started to provide the service after you have given your express consent to this and at the same time confirmed your knowledge that you lose your right of withdrawal when the contract has been fulfilled by us in full.

Other important notes:

You expressly agree that we may commence the performance of the service before the end of the withdrawal period. Thus, your right of withdrawal expires upon complete fulfilment of the contract.

Exclusion of the right of withdrawal:

The right of revocation against us does not apply with regard to such contracts that are not concluded between the User and the Operator, but between the User and a third party, e.g. another User. Any rights of revocation in this respect can only be asserted against the third party.
