Art. 6 Fee, Due Date, Term, and Termination

 

All fees, the applicable due date, term, and termination shall be subject to the users' subscription models as set forth:

 

  1. Fees

    We offer certain enhanced features of the App which you can purchase as a monthly, yearly or lifetime subscription (“Subscription”). All Subscriptions will have access to the same enhanced features. The monthly Subscription provides you 30 calendar days access to enhanced features. The yearly Subscription provides you 365 calendar days access to enhanced features. The lifetime Subscription provides you access to enhanced features for [the duration of your life] [120 years] or until we cease to commercially offer the App. Notwithstanding, we may terminate any Subscription immediately if you violate the terms of this Agreement.

    A description of features associated with Subscriptions is available within the App and on our webpage at https://www.primedmind.com. The amounts due and payable by you for a Subscription that you purchase through the App will be presented to you before you place your order. If you choose to purchase a Subscription via the App you agree

    1. to pay the applicable fees and any taxes;

    2. that we may charge your account with the app store or distribution platform (like the Apple App Store or Google Play) where the App is made available (each, an “App Provider”); and

    3. to bear any additional charges that your App Provider, bank or other financial service provider may levy on you as well as any taxes or fees that may apply to your order. You’ll receive a confirmation email after we confirm the payment for your order. Your order is not binding on us until accepted and confirmed by us. All payments made are non-refundable and non-transferable except as expressly provided in these Terms.

  2. Monthly and yearly Subscriptions automatically renew according and are payable and charged to the following conditions:

    1. The first charge occurs at the beginning of the Subscription and, because each such Subscription renews automatically for an additional period equal in length to the expiring Subscription term until you cancel it, at the time of each renewal until you cancel. You must cancel your Subscription before it renews to avoid the billing of the fees for the next Subscription period, whether monthly or annually. If you purchase your Subscription via an App Provider, you can cancel the renewal of your Subscription with the App Provider. You will not receive a refund for the fees you already paid for your current Subscription period and you will continue to receive the enhance features ordered until the end of your current Subscription period.

    2. If you have any concerns or objections regarding charges, you agree to raise them with us first and you agree not to cancel or reject any credit card or App Provider charges unless you have made a reasonable attempt at resolving the matter directly with us.

    3. We reserve the right to not process or to cancel your order in certain circumstances, for example, if your credit card is declined, if we suspect the request or order is fraudulent, or in other circumstances we deem appropriate in our sole discretion. We also reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to take steps to verify your identity in connection with your order. We will either not charge you or refund the charges for orders that we do not process or cancel.

  3. Lifetime Subscriptions are paid for by a onetime, upfront payment. There is no automatic renewal. You must be an individual (natural-born person) to have a lifetime Subscription.

  4. Changes to Price Terms

    Primed Mind reserves the right to change its pricing terms for Subscriptions at any time and Primed Mind will notify you in advance of such changes becoming effective. Changes to the pricing terms will not apply retroactively and will only apply for Subscription renewals after such changed pricing terms have been communicated to you. If you do not agree with the changes to Primed Mind’s pricing terms then you may choose not to renew your Subscription.

  5. Future Functionality

    You agree that your purchases are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features, or dependent on any oral or written public comments made by Primed Mind regarding future functionality or features. We may change, update, remove, or terminate any or all advanced features of the App at any time, without notice and for any reason. Your Subscription does not provide any guarantee to delivery of current or future functionality or features.

  6. This Agreement commences when you download the App and will continue in effect until terminated by you or us.

    1. You may terminate this Agreement by deleting the App and providing notice to us at support@primedmind.com.

    2. We may terminate this Agreement at any time without notice for any reason or no reason. We may terminate this Agreement if we cease to support the App.

    3. This Agreement will terminate immediately and automatically without any notice if you violate any terms and conditions of this Agreement.

  7. Upon termination, all rights granted to you under this Agreement will also terminate and you must cease all use of the App.

  8. Termination will not limit any of the Company’s rights or remedies at law or in equity.

Art. 9 Limitation of Liability

 

  1. Primed Mind GmbH would like to reiterate that the audio files described herein are no substitute for the services provided by life or social counselors, coaches, psychologists, psychiatrists, psychotherapists or physicians and that they are supplied without any promise or commitment in this respect.

  3. In all other respects, the disclaimer of liability on the part of Primed Mind GmbH shall extend, but shall not be limited, to any consequential damage unless such liability is mandated by the Product Liability Act due to willful acts, gross negligence, physical damage or adverse health effects or if such liability arises from the assumption of quality guarantees by Primed Mind GmbH, the fraudulent concealment of defects, or any breach of material contractual obligations on the part of Primed Mind GmbH. Compensation claims asserted for breaches of material contractual obligations, however, shall be limited to contractually typical and foreseeable damage unless caused by willful intent or gross negligence.

  5. The foregoing limitations will apply whether such damages arise out of breach of contract, tort (including negligence), or otherwise and regardless of whether such damages were foreseeable or Primed Mind was advised of the possibility of such damages.

  1. For any transfer or assignment of rights arising from, or in connection with, the present Agreement to third parties by users, prior written approval by Primed Mind GmbH shall be required.

  2. This Agreement shall be exclusively subject to Austrian law to the exclusion of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods dated April 11, 1980 (Vienna Convention) as well as to the exclusion of any conflict-of-law rules. Any claim, cause of action, or other dispute must be referred to and decided in Vienna, Austria. You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts.

  3. The Parties hereto acknowledge that they are aware of the fact that the software described herein may be subject to export and import restriction. In particular, the software may be subject to official approval; restrictions concerning the use of the software or its associated technologies may apply in foreign countries.

  4. The place of performance for this Agreement shall be Vienna, with the courts of Vienna having exclusive jurisdiction provided both parties are entrepreneurs or corporate bodies under public law.

  5. Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or the breach thereof, shall be determined by arbitration administered by the International Centre for Dispute Resolution in accordance with its International Arbitration Rules. There shall be a single arbitrator appointed. The arbitration shall take place in the venue designated in this Agreement. The arbitration proceeding and decision shall be in English. This Arbitration provision shall survive termination of the Agreement.

  6.

The parties agree to arbitrate solely on an individual basis, and that this agreement does not permit class arbitration or any claims brought as a plaintiff or class member in any class or representative arbitration proceeding. The arbitral tribunal may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. In the event the prohibition on class arbitration is deemed invalid or unenforceable, then the remaining portions of the arbitration agreement will remain in force.

  7. Should one or more provisions contained in the present Agreement be invalid, the remaining provisions shall nevertheless continue with full force and effect. In any such event, the Parties hereto shall endeavor to agree on a new provision in lieu of the invalid one corresponding to the contractual aim of this Agreement as to its legal and economic effect as closely as possible.
