SOLO Sales – Conditions of Use for iPad-App

Salt Solutions

The use of the app is conditional on your agreement to the following conditions of use. Therefore please read these carefully.

1 Scope

1.1. Use of the application offered by SALT Solutions GmbH (hereinafter “SALT Solutions”) is permitted only subject to these conditions. Use of the application signifies acceptance of these conditions of use in their current version.

1.2. The application is intended only for business undertakings or public entities and the respective business or entity is represented by the user and must be accountable for the user’s actions and knowledge.

2 Conclusion of the contract and conditions

As a general rule apps must be loaded initially via the Apple App Store. If an app or an additional function of the app (in app purchase) is subject to a charge, the current charge will be displayed to you in the Apple App Store or in the app itself.  Payment will be made via your account with the Apple App Store. In addition to the price of the app or the chargeable additional function, transmission charges by your provider can accrue in the course of downloading and use.

Within the app you may use content free of charge unless you are required to take out a subscription for the activation of additional functions.

Subscriptions extend automatically for the period specified, unless you deactivate the automatic extension at least 24 hours before the end of the term. If you have a current subscription, your deactivation will only take effect at the end of the term.

SALT Solutions may adjust the price. Where prices are increased by more than 10% you have the right when the increase comes into effect to terminate without giving notice.

The right of each party to terminate for good cause without giving notice remains unaffected.

Our online offerings are intended exclusively for commercial customers with the consequence that there is no statutory right of cancellation within the meaning of S. 355 German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch or “BGB”). When an order is placed a binding contract without any right of cancellation comes into being.
