5. Content and services
iDIERS continuously develops the app and the programs. New functions can be introduced and existing ones replaced by new ones or removed without replacement.
The duration of use is limited to the activated period when using the activation code. This type of use is not automatically extended or switched to a use for which the user is liable to pay costs. After the expiry of the activated period, the user will only be informed that the entry of a new activation code or the conclusion of a paid subscription is required for further use.
When taking out a subscription as a self-payer (without activation code), the respective selected term applies as the minimum term. The subscription ends automatically at the end of the selected term.
Payment of usage fees for self-payers shall be made in advance to the respective distribution channel (e.g. iOS App Store or Google Play) and, in the case of recurring fees, in accordance with the respective agreed billing cycle.
The use with cost coverage/reimbursement of a health insurance is limited in time and automatically ends at the end of the cost coverage or reimbursement period. This use does not lead to a subscription.
7. Right of withdrawal
The user has the right to revoke his declaration of intent to conclude the contract within 14 days without giving reasons. The revocation period is 14 days from the day of the conclusion of the contract. The day of the conclusion of the contract shall be deemed to be the conclusion of a paid subscription contract.
In order to exercise the right of withdrawal, the User must inform iDIERS of his/her decision to withdraw from the declaration aimed at concluding the subscription. The revocation must be sent to the following e-mail address, indicating a domestic current account: email@example.com. The wording of the revocation is free, but must show a clear intention on the part of the user.
In order to comply with the withdrawal period, it is sufficient that the notification of the exercise of the right of withdrawal is sent before the expiry of the withdrawal period.
If the User has exercised his/her right of withdrawal, iDIERS will return all payments received without delay and at the latest within fourteen days of the date on which iDIERS received notification of the withdrawal and was able to confirm the identity of the User.

9. Copyright, licensing and trademark rights
The design of the iDIERS app (insofar as it does not concern standard app elements) and the texts, images, graphics, layouts, sounds, animations, videos and databases contained herein are protected by copyright or are subject to other laws for the protection of intellectual property. Unless otherwise indicated, they are the property of iDIERS.
The offer of the iDIERS App shall not be construed as conferring by implication, estoppel or otherwise any licence or title to any copyright, patent, trade mark or other proprietary right of iDIERS or any third party.

Passing on or offering the programs (in whole or in part) to third parties is not permitted. Any commercial reproduction of the copyright-protected content or commercial distribution to third parties is not permitted and will be pursued by iDIERS with legal action.
The user is prohibited from removing copyright notices, trademarks and other legal reservations from downloaded content.
10. Liability of the Provider
The training therapy plan in the iDIERS app is based on a biomechanical analysis and medical diagnosis by a therapist. The information or data collected within the iDIERS app, statistically evaluated and visually illustrated in the form of diagrams, cannot directly serve as a basis for therapy and does not constitute medical advice.
The physical condition of each user is different. The health of each individual depends on many specifics. The success of the programs also depends on numerous factors which iDIERS has no influence over. Consequently, no guarantee can be given for the success of the programs.
iDIERS does not assume any liability or guarantee for the intended functioning and availability of the programs. iDIERS does not owe any concrete success.
Any liability on the part of iDIERS for ensuring that the functioning and availability of the programs meet the medical needs of the user is excluded, in particular in the event that the user has provided incorrect or incomplete information about his or her person, health, current treatments or symptoms at the beginning of or during the use of the app.
iDIERS accepts no liability for damage to health suffered by users as a result of improper execution of the program content and/or as a result of recognized or undetected pre-existing conditions.
iDIERS shall not be liable for damages incurred by the user due to unavailability or technical malfunction of the programs. Any reduction of the user fee paid shall remain unaffected by this.
iDIERS excludes any liability for negligent breaches of duty. Damages resulting from injury to life, body or health as well as guarantees remain unaffected by this.
The aforementioned exclusions of liability also apply in each case to breaches of duty by iDIERS‘ vicarious agents and their legal representatives.
For all claims against iDIERS for damages or reimbursement of futile expenses, a limitation period of two years applies from the time at which the user becomes aware of the damage. Irrespective of this knowledge, claims for damages become statute-barred at the latest after three years from the time of the damaging event. This does not apply to liability in the event of intent or gross negligence or personal injury.

Information on the handling of personal data is documented in the data protection regulations, available in the iDIERS app under Info > Data protection regulations.

It is the user’s responsibility to regularly secure data and information relevant to him or her against loss, damage and modification at a technical level appropriate to the importance of the data. In particular, iDIERS does not assume any guarantee or liability that data created by the user in the iDIERS app will be permanently preserved or backed up.
