These Terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of Bavaria, Germany, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us regarding our Service, and supersede and replace any prior agreements we might have between us regarding the Service.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material we will try to provide at least 10 days notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion.
The revised terms and conditions shall apply to the use of our Service from the date of publication of the revised terms and conditions on the Service, and you hereby waive any right you may otherwise have to be notified of, or to consent to, revisions of these terms and conditions. By continuing to access or use our Service after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Service.
You hereby agree that we may assign, transfer, sub-contract or otherwise deal with your rights and/or obligations under these terms and conditions. You may not without prior written content assign, transfer, sub-contract, or otherwise deal with any of your rights and/or obligations under these terms and conditions.
If a provision of these terms and conditions is determined by any court or other competent authority to be unlawful and/or unenforceable, the other provisions will continue in effect. If any unlawful and/or unenforceable provisions of these terms or conditions would be lawful or enforceable if part of it were deleted, that part will be deemed to be deleted, and the rest of the provision will continue in effect.
Third party rights
These terms and conditions are for our benefit and your benefit, and these terms and conditions are not intended to benefit or to be enforceable by any third party. The exercise of the parties’ rights under these terms and conditions is not subject to the consent of any third party.

Such third-party links are not under the control of us and we are not responsible for any third-party links. We provide access to these third-party links only as a convenience to you, and we do not review, approve, monitor, endorse, warrant, or make any representation with respect to third-party content or third-party links. You use all third-party links at your own risk and should apply a suitable level of caution and discretion in doing so. When you click on any of the third-party links, the applicable third party’s terms and policies apply, including the third-party’s privacy and data gathering practices. You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any transaction in connection with such third party links.
Your interactions with other users of the Service are solely between you and such users. You agree that we will not be responsible for any loss or damage incurred as the result of any such interactions. If there is a dispute between you and any other user of the service, we are under no obligation to become involved.
You hereby release and forever discharge the us (and our officers, employees, agents, successors, and assigns) from, and hereby waive and relinquish, each and every past, present and future dispute, claim, controversy, demand, right, obligation, liability, action and cause of action of every kind and nature (including personal injuries, death, and property damage), that has arisen or arises directly or indirectly out of, or that relates directly or indirectly to, the use of the Service (including any interactions with, or act or omission of, other users of the Service or any Third-Party Links & Ads).
Subject to the section ‘Limits and exclusions of liability’, these terms and conditions shall constitute the entire agreement between you and us in relation to your use of our Service and shall supersede all previous agreements between you and us in relation to use of our service.
These terms and conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and use regarding the use of the Service. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. The word “including” means “including without limitation”. If any provision of these Terms is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of these Terms will be unimpaired and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law. Your relationship to us is that of an independent contractor, and neither party is an agent or partner of the other. These Terms, and your rights and obligations herein, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated, or otherwise transferred by you without our prior written consent, and any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. We may freely assign these terms and conditions. The terms and conditions shall be binding upon assignees.
