(ii) the Customer has properly scanned the QR code affixed to the RELEVO Reusable Packaging using the RELEVO App; and

12.3 In case of breach of essential contractual obligations RELEVO is only liable for typical and foreseeable damages. Material obligations are obligations (i) the breach of which endangers the fulfillment of the purpose of the contract or (ii) which enable the proper execution of the contract in the first place and on the compliance of which the other party may regularly rely.
12.4 If a claim is made against RELEVO by a third party because of a violation of these GTC by the customer, the customer indemnifies RELEVO from all claims and costs, which are directly or indirectly caused by this, including reasonable costs for legal defense. This does not apply if the customer is not responsible for a violation. RELEVO reserves the right to take over the defense against such claims itself.

13.1 RELEVO is the owner of the rights of use of all pictures, movies and texts which are published on the RELEVO App. A use of the pictures, movies and texts is not permitted without the explicit consent of RELEVO. A consent is not given by the mere registration in the RELEVO App.

RELEVO has to inform the Customer about the proposed change by e-mail. The changes are considered as accepted and approved, if the Customer does not object to them at least in text form. The objection must be received within two (2) weeks after receipt of the notification. The Customer will be informed about the objection period and the consequences of the expiration of silence in the e-mail. If the Customer exercises his right of objection, the change request shall be deemed rejected. The customer account will then be continued without the proposed changes or the membership will be terminated. The right of the parties to terminate the contract remains unaffected.
Only the German version of these GTC is binding.
17.1 These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of international private law. In the event of any disputes, the parties agree, if and to the extent permitted by law, that the exclusive place of jurisdiction shall be Munich.
17.2 If the Customer, as a consumer, has his habitual residence in a country other than Germany and within the European Union at the time of the respective conclusion of the contract, the application of mandatory legal provisions of that European country shall remain unaffected by the choice of law made in Section 17.1.

Google Firebase is used for the purpose of evaluating user behavior with respect to our app, such as the first call of the app, uninstallation, installation of updates, crashes (crashes), as well as frequency of use.
Google Firebase includes various features that allow us to analyze your in-app behavior. In this way, we can, for example, analyze your screen calls, button presses. We can also determine which functions within our app are frequently or rarely used. Google Firebase stores, among other things, the number and duration of sessions, operating systems, device models, and region for these purposes.

The data is stored anonymously.
As a transfer of personal data to the USA may occur, further protection mechanisms are required to ensure the data protection level of the GDPR. To ensure this, Google uses standard data protection clauses in accordance with Art. 46 (2) lit. c DSGVO. These oblige the recipient of the data in the USA to process the data in accordance with the level of protection in Europe. In cases where this cannot be ensured even through this contractual extension, we endeavor to obtain additional regulations and commitments from the recipient in the USA.
Google Firebase is only used on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO. The tool is only used for analysis, optimization as well as to ensure the stability of our app. Information on data protection can be accessed via the following link: https://firebase.google.com/support/privacy.
3.7. Payment processing climate fee (use of PayPal and Braintree)
If our reusable packaging is not returned, the agreed fee will be charged. For this we use the payment service provider PayPal and its service Braintree.
In case of payment via PayPal, credit card via PayPal, direct debit via PayPal or – if offered – “purchase on account” or “installment payment” via PayPal, we pass on your payment data to PayPal (Europe) S.a.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter “PayPal”) within the scope of payment processing. Payment by credit card is made using the payment service Braintree, a service of PayPal. The transfer to the service provider takes place in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and only to the extent necessary for the payment processing.
PayPal reserves the right to conduct a credit check for the payment methods credit card via PayPal, direct debit via PayPal or – if offered – “purchase on account” or “installment payment” via PayPal. For this purpose, your payment data may be passed on to credit agencies in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of PayPal’s legitimate interest in determining your solvency. PayPal uses the result of the credit check in terms of the statistical probability of non-payment for the purpose of deciding on the provision of the respective payment method. The creditworthiness information may contain probability values (so-called score values). Insofar as score values are included in the result of the credit report, they have their basis in a scientifically recognized mathematical-statistical procedure. The calculation of the score values includes, but is not limited to, address data. For further information on data protection law, including information on the credit agencies used, please refer to PayPal’s data protection declaration: https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.
You can object to this processing of your data at any time by sending a message to PayPal. However, PayPal may still be entitled to process your personal data if this is necessary for the contractual processing of payments.
A transfer of your personal data to third parties does not take place, unless
if we have explicitly pointed this out in the description of the respective data processing,
if you have given your express consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO,
the disclosure is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data,
in the event that there is a legal obligation for the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO, and
as far as this is necessary for the processing of contractual relationships with you according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO.
In addition, we use external service providers for the processing of our services, which we have carefully selected, commissioned in writing and with whom we have concluded order processing agreements pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO, if necessary. These are bound by our instructions and are regularly monitored by us. These are, among others, service providers for app hosting, sending emails, and maintenance and care of our IT systems, etc. The service providers will not disclose this data to third parties.

This may include IP addresses, contact requests, meta and communication data, website accesses and other data generated via the app or website.
We have concluded an order processing agreement with the provider in accordance with the requirements of Art. 28 DSGVO, in which we oblige the provider to protect our customers’ data and not to pass it on to third parties.
Since a transfer of personal data to the USA cannot be ruled out, further protection mechanisms are required to ensure the level of data protection of the DSGVO. To ensure this, the provider has ensured that standard data protection clauses are agreed in accordance with Art. 46 (2) lit. c DSGVO. These oblige the recipient of the data in the USA to process the data in accordance with the level of protection in Europe. In cases where this cannot be ensured even through this contractual extension, we endeavor to obtain additional regulations and commitments from the recipient in the USA.
The duration of the storage of personal data is measured by the relevant statutory retention periods (e.g. from commercial law and tax law). After expiry of the respective period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted. If data is required for the fulfillment or initiation of a contract or if we have a legitimate interest in continuing to store it, the data will be deleted when it is no longer required for these purposes or you have exercised your right of revocation or objection.
