Should the user not agree with the GTCs, the registration must be waived. These General Terms and Conditions apply to all websites and apps of SQIN. In addition, they are valid regardless of whether the use of the SQIN Services is free of charge or against payment.
- General provisions
The SQIN Apps refers to services provided by SkinTech Corp. UG, Pappelallee 78/79, 10437 Berlin, Germany (hereinafter referred to as “Provider”). Further information about the SQIN Apps and SkinTech Corp. UG can be found in the imprint on the website and within the App.
The Provider offers different possibilities to users of making themselves familiar with the practice of interval chamfered. The subject of this contract is the use, free of charge or against payment or financed by advertising, of the services offered by the Provider under the name SQIN via his website http://www.sqin.co, other SQIN websites or via software applications (hereinafter referred to as “Services” or “Service”). If the user wishes to use a mobile app to use the Services, he can find out at www.sqin.co whether the Provider offers a mobile app for his terminal device or for the operating system of his terminal device. If a service is subject to a charge, this is explicitly indicated.
A Service can basically be used on all platforms or end devices supported by SQIN. Limitations, especially technical ones, can be found in the respective offer description.
The use of the services does not require registration. Using the basic functions of SQIN Apps is initially possible without registration. A registration in the SQIN App can be done later.
By registering with SQIN Apps, the user accepts these terms and conditions for the use of the services. If the user accesses the services via App and has downloaded SQIN Apps from the App Store of a third party or accesses the contents via an audio/video or assistant platform (such as Google Home), the respective terms and conditions of business or use of the App Store or platform shall apply in addition; in the event of contradictions, these GTC shall prevail.
When downloading and using SQIN Apps, especially in third party networks or abroad, the user may incur transmission costs from his Internet access provider.
Prerequisite for the use of the services is the reaching of the age of 18 and full legal capacity. The services are directed exclusively to consumers. According to the legal definition, a consumer is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor their independent professional activity. The use of SQIN Apps for commercial or other commercial purposes is expressly prohibited.
- Services with costs
Some services of SQIN Apps require the payment of a fee. The scope of the included services and usable by the user depends on whether and which services are used free of charge or against payment. In the case of free use, the user has access to certain basic functions and information of the respective services. An extended range of functions is available to the user if the services are activated for the user as part of a subscription. The SQIN Apps provide an overview of the available fee-based services, their fees, scope of services, restrictions and terms. The payment of the fee only entitles the user to access the services available or visible in the offer presentation. All fees mentioned are inclusive of the applicable sales tax.
The individual steps of purchasing paid services are described in the descriptions within the third party’s App Store, SQIN Apps, or the website www.sqin.co. By placing an order, the user submits an offer. The mere pressing of the order button does not constitute a contract of sale for the paid content. Only after successful payment and the corresponding electronic confirmation, the order is considered accepted and the sales contract is concluded. Acceptance can also be implied, in particular by activating the chargeable services.
The SQIN Apps offer the option to unlock the entire App content by a payment. The SQIN Apps offer subscriptions with different minimum terms. With the activation of the paid content, the user receives the right to use it permanently for his own, non-commercial purposes on all devices connected and compatible with his App Store account. Any further use – in particular publication on the Internet, as well as the unauthorized copying, distribution or making available of the contents via the Internet, whether free of charge or against payment – is not permitted. The same applies to transcribing the contents, removing copyright information and source references as well as other editing or manipulation of the download. The granted rights of use are not transferable or sublicensable and are subject to full payment. Uses permitted by copyright law are not restricted.
The Provider is entitled to revise, update or otherwise change the content at any time if this should be necessary for technical, legal or content reasons.
The Provider shall keep all purchased digital data available for download for a reasonable period of time. However, unlimited data backup and data availability cannot be guaranteed. The user should therefore save his downloads in parallel locally on connected end devices. The user will be informed expressly and in advance if the content can no longer be made available for download by the provider.
The Provider of the App Store can influence the duration or renewal, or their available paid services. Depending on the App Store, fee-based services may expire at the end of the agreed term without requiring a termination, or the respective contract term may be extended indefinitely or for a corresponding period of time. Details can be found in the terms and conditions or the respective offer presentation of the App Store. The App Store offers the possibility to terminate paid services via a corresponding menu item.
If fees cannot be collected and if the user is responsible for the event causing the collection, the user shall bear all costs arising therefrom. If payments made are charged back or the user does not pay fees, SQIN is entitled to block all or access to individual services from the SQIN Apps.
The Provider can offer paid services to users for a certain time free of charge. Which user can participate in a test offer is at the sole discretion of the Provider. The Provider may change the scope of services of the test offer or terminate the provision of a test offer at any time.
The Provider reserves the right to change its business model at any time and, for example, to provide certain or all services only against payment. The respective fees are published in the SQIN Apps. The user is free to terminate the use of the service or to decide to continue using the service for a fee.
We reserve the right to assert further claims for default of payment.
The Provider can employ people who are active on the platform either as volunteers or for a fee. These persons can act as coaches within groups or contact the user to support and motivate him to use App. These persons can also be active in the context of paid functions.
- Right of withdrawal for consumers

3.1 Right of withdrawal
The user has the right to revoke the concluded contract within fourteen days without giving reasons. The revocation period is fourteen days from the day of the conclusion of the contract.

In order to comply with the revocation period, it is sufficient for the user to send the notification of the exercise of the right of revocation before the end of the revocation period.
3.2 Consequences of revocation
If the User revokes a contract with the Provider, the Provider shall reimburse the User for all payments received from the User without delay and at the latest within fourteen days from the day on which the Provider receives notification of the revocation of the contract. For this repayment, the Provider shall use the same means of payment that the User used for the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise with the User; in no case shall the User be charged any fees on the basis of this repayment.
If the User requests that the services should commence during the withdrawal period, the User shall pay the Provider a reasonable amount corresponding to the proportion of the services already provided by the time the User notifies the Provider of the exercise of the right of withdrawal with respect to this Agreement compared to the total scope of the services provided for in the Agreement.

The Provider points out the fact to the user that interval chamfered is usually health unproblematic. Any exercises presented in the context of the services provided by SQIN Apps are designed for averagely healthy and physically and mentally resilient users. The user carries out any exercises on his own responsibility. If the user suffers from any medical condition, such as diabetes or cardiovascular problems, lung or respiratory diseases (including asthma), neuromuscular diseases, surgery or other health restrictions, is pregnant or breastfeeding, or feels unwell the Provider advises the user to consult a physician. The use of SQIN Apps is at your own risk. The services and benefits offered here are not medical or medical advice and cannot be used as a substitute for medical examinations or treatment. Minors may only fast in agreement with and under the supervision of their parents.
If there are medical or medical advices they will be directly pointed out to the user.
The Provider is liable without limitation for intent and gross negligence. The Provider shall only be liable for simple negligence if his vicarious agents or legal representatives violate an obligation that is essential for achieving the purpose of the contract (so-called cardinal obligation). In this case the liability is limited to the foreseeable damage. This shall amount to a maximum of the fee paid by the user for the use of the paid services and functions. The aforementioned limitation of liability does not apply to damages due to the absence of warranted characteristics, to injury to life, body or health, or to claims under the Product Liability Act. However, insofar as the liability of the Provider is excluded or limited, this also applies to the personal liability of its legal representatives and vicarious agents.
The User undertakes to indemnify the Provider or the Provider’s vicarious agents from all claims of third parties which are asserted in connection with the User’s breach of his obligations under these GTC and/or the laws applicable to him and to assume all reasonable costs incurred by the Provider, including those for legal defense, insofar as the User is responsible for the breaches.
- No Guarantee
The Provider does not give any assurances or guarantees that the result desired by the user will be achieved by using the respective service. The Provider does not owe a concrete success. In addition, the result is also influenced by factors that cannot be controlled, such as physical predispositions and preconditions, so that the result can vary greatly among different people despite the same use of the services. The Provider gives no guarantees that all interactions on the platform with other users will take place.
- Responsibility for user-generated content
The user is solely responsible for content uploaded within the services. The Provider does not adopt them as his own and does not check them.
- Contract period, Termination, Repayment
Insofar as the subject of the user contract is free services, the user contract can be terminated at any time. For this purpose, the user will find a corresponding account deletion function in his account settings on the website and in the App. Termination is also possible by mail (SkinTech Corp. UG, Pappelallee 78/79, 10437 Berlin, Germany) or by notification to the e-mail address email@example.com. The use by the provider can be extraordinarily terminated without notice if the user violates these GTCs. Termination of the User Agreement by the Provider shall be effected by notification to the e-mail address provided during registration. Furthermore, the Provider reserves the right to refuse the User’s registration without stating reasons.
The SQIN Apps provides paid services. Unless otherwise stated in the respective offer, the license agreement for the respective paid service will initially run for the booked minimum usage period. Thereafter, the license agreement will be renewed for the duration of the booked minimum usage period if it is terminated by the user or the Provider before the end of the renewal period/ minimum usage period with effect from the end of the respective period. The User may also use the Services after termination until the end of the respective period. The termination of the paid service can be carried out if the purchase was made via an App Store, as described in the respective App Store in the subscription administration. If the subscription was purchased via www.sqin.co or another platform operated by SQIN Apps, the termination must be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail (SkinTech Corp.

In the event of a termination of the user contract on the part of the user as well as a termination by the Provider, the repayment of any fees paid in advance is excluded, unless the user terminates the contract for an important reason for which the Provider is responsible.

- Final Provisions
The Provider endeavors to enable a trouble-free operation of the app and to keep it available as far as possible. However, it is pointed out that a complete or uninterrupted availability is not technically feasible. Therefore, the Provider does not assume any guarantee for a trouble-free operation or a certain availability. Furthermore, there is no claim to the maintenance of individual functionalities of the App that are used free of charge. The Provider is – as far as there are no contractual obligations to the contrary – entitled at any time to change or remove content, services and functionalities provided within SQIN Apps and to make new content, services and functionalities available or to stop further development of the App as a whole. In this respect, the Provider also reserves the right to issue separate terms and conditions for new service offers or to discontinue and change additional features free of charge.
The Provider is entitled to entrust third parties with the provision of the agreed services, in whole or in part, at any time. Furthermore, the Provider may transfer his rights and obligations to one or more third parties
Agreements between the Provider and the User that deviate from these GTC must be in text form in order to be valid; this also applies to a waiver of the written form requirement.
The place of jurisdiction is Berlin, if the user does not have his domicile or usual place of residence in Germany or moves there or if the user is not a consumer in the sense of § 13 BGB. SQIN is also entitled to sue at the user’s general place of jurisdiction.
German substantive law shall apply to the exclusion of the referral rules.
Should any provision of these terms and conditions be or become invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining clauses. In this case, the invalid or unenforceable provision shall be replaced by the parties by a valid provision which comes as close as possible to the economic purpose of the invalid or unenforceable provision. The same applies in the case of a loophole in the regulations.
