(1) Withdrawal Policy:

You may cancel your contractual declaration in writing (e.g. letter, fax, e-mail) within 14 days without giving reasons. The deadline starts on receipt of this notification in writing, but not till conclusion of contract and also not till performance of our duty to pass on information according to article 246 § 2 in conjunction with § 1 par. 1 and 2 EGBGB (German Civil Code), as well as our duties according to § 312e par. 1 (1) BGB in conjunction with article 246 § 3 EGBGB. To meet the cancellation period it is enough to dispatch the cancellation in time. The notice of cancellation must be addressed to:

yasni GmbH
Lyoner Str. 14
60528 Frankfurt am Main
E-mail: info@yasni.com

Consequences of Withdrawal

In case of an effective withdrawal achievements received by both parties must be mutually returned and any usufruct, which may have been obtained (e.g. interest), must be refunded. If you are unable to return the received achievement to us either in full or in part or only in deteriorated condition, you must compensate us for the loss in value. This may lead to the result that you are nevertheless obligated to fulfill your contractual payment obligation for the period of time prior to the withdrawal. Under no circumstances will we charge you for services provided as free. Obligations to reimburse payments must be met within 30 days. This deadline starts for you upon dispatch of your notice of withdrawal, for us upon its receipt.

Additional Information

Your right of withdrawal expires ahead of time if the contract has been fulfilled by both parties with your explicit consent before you have exerted your right of withdrawal.

(2) By registering with Yasni you are able to use all services of Yasni.

6. Liability of Yasni - Liability Limitation

(1) Yasni shall have unlimited liability for all damages caused by Yasni in the case of wilful intent or gross negligence.

(2) In the case of slight negligence, Yasni shall have unlimited liability in the event of injury to body or health.

(3) Otherwise, Yasni shall be liable only where Yasni is in breach of an essential contractual obligation. Here, the notion of an essential contractual obligation refers to such obligations of which the fulfilment enables the proper execution of the contract at all and where the customer may ordinarily depend on said fulfilment. In these cases, liability is limited to compensation for predictable, typically occurring damage.

(4) Liability under product liability law remains unaffected.

(5) If the liability of Yasni is precluded or limited by the aforementioned regulations, this also applies for the agents of yasni GmbH.

7. Data Protection

(1) The personal data of the user that are required for the execution and processing of the services and offers from Yasni are stored and processed in accordance with the legal conditions.

(2) The user may voluntarily provide information when using Yasni. By entering the data, the user provides his/her consent to the processing and use of the data where such is required for the provision of the offers from Yasni or for the operation of the services. At any time, users themselves may voluntarily delete the data entered and therefore end any further processing of the data. Furthermore, the user may at any time revoke his/her consent with effect for the future.

8. Termination of the Owner-User Relationship

(1) The user may terminate the owner-user relationship at any time without giving reason. Termination should be executed using the Yasni contact form. On termination, the forename and surname of user are to be specified together with the user e-mail address registered on Yasni. Within one week, the operator will completely delete the entire data set saved under the web profile (Exposé) of the user. Notice of termination may also be given in written form or textual form. In this case, the processing time may be longer.

(2) Yasni may terminate the user relationship with the customer if the customer is in breach of his/her obligations (fig. 3). Moreover, termination may be executed due to a significant reason. For Yasni, a significant reason exists if the continuation of the contractual relationship is unreasonable for the operator in consideration of all the circumstances of the individual case and in consideration of the interests of Yasni and the user.

9. Modifications

Yasni reserves the right to modify these terms and conditions of usage. Users will be informed by e-mail of any modifications to the terms and conditions of usage.

In the e-mail, Yasni will advise separately of the option to object and the deadline for so doing. Should a user object to the modification of the terms and conditions of usage, Yasni is entitled to terminate and end the owner-user relationship at the time of the planned commencement of the modifications.

10. Concluding Conditions

(1) The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies and the validity of the UN SISG is excluded.

(2) Should terms or conditions of these general terms and conditions of business be or become invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining terms and conditions.
