                8. Further obligations of the user

                  8.1 You are responsible for the contributions that are created by you or on your device. We cannot guarantee that all third party content is true and accurate. In general, we proactively check whether the content published by a user is (i) true and correct and / or (ii) violates applicable law.

                  8.2 In order to prevent your device and / or your Website account from being compromised by third parties (e.g. by malware), you must take all appropriate security measures, in particular you must have the latest updates for your device (especially updates for the operating system of devices).

                  8.3 If you become aware of security gaps in the services or of significant violations of these conditions by other users, we would be grateful if you report this to our support team (using the form on the website).

                  9. Intellectual Property in the Services

                    9.1 The “service content” is our property or the property of the respective licensor and is subject to the protection of copyright, trademark law and / or other provisions for the protection of intellectual property (“service content” in the sense of these conditions includes all components of the services, i.e. data and materials, including images, graphics, illustrations, designs, symbols, photos, text and other descriptions, excluding user content and third-party content).

                    9.2 Any type of use and / or reproduction of the service content without our prior consent constitutes a violation of applicable law and is prohibited according to these Terms.

                    10. Availability / system failure

                      Insofar as this is technically feasible and economically justifiable, we strive to make the services available around the clock. However, we cannot guarantee availability. Use may be temporarily restricted due to capacity bottlenecks, for reasons of security or system integrity or to carry out technical maintenance work with a view to the proper and / or better provision of the services. In these cases, COACHINHO will take into account the legitimate interests of the customer, e.g. through timely information (if possible).

                      11. Limitation of Liability

                        11.1 COACHINHO is liable to the user in accordance with the provisions of the applicable product liability laws, in the case of willful intent for injury to life, body or health, if COACHINHO assumes any guarantee, as well as in all other cases of mandatory legal liability, in each case in accordance with the statutory provisions.

                        11.2 In the event of a breach of essential contractual obligations (the so-called “cardinal obligations”), COACHINHO is liable to pay compensation to the user for the damage incurred. Cardinal obligations are obligations, the violation of which endangers the achievement of the purpose of the contract, as well as all obligations, the fulfillment of which enables the proper execution of the contract in the first place and which you can generally trust to be observed. However, if the breach of a cardinal obligation only occurs through slight negligence and does not result in injury to life, body or health, the user’s claims for damages are limited to the foreseeable damage typical for the contract.

                        11.3 In all other cases, claims for damages against COACHINHO – regardless of your legal basis, in particular due to the breach of a pre-contractual obligation or of obligations arising from the contractual relationship between the user and COACHINHO by COACHINHO, his legal representatives, employees or vicarious agents or due to unauthorized acts – locked out.

                        11.4 To the extent that COACHINHO’s liability is limited or excluded in accordance with Clause 11, this also applies to the personal liability of COACHINHO ‘s legal representatives, employees and vicarious agents.

                        11.5 All liability privileges, e.g. in accordance with Paragraph 8-11 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG) or Paragraph 598 of the German Civil Code (BGB) remain unaffected.

                        11.6 The aforementioned provisions from Paragraph 11 do not change the burden of proof to the disadvantage of the user.

                        11.7 Claims for damages by the user become statute-barred after the statutory limitation period has expired from the start of the statutory limitation period.

                        12. Compensation

                          The User undertakes to indemnify, defend and release COACHINHO from liability for all losses, expenses, liability, damage and claims (including reasonable legal fees) resulting from a culpable breach of user obligations in accordance with the Terms.

                          13. References to other websites / content

                            Insofar as the services contain links, and references to third parties, in particular to third party websites, we have no influence on the current and future design and content of the linked websites and can therefore not assume any liability. Use of the content provided by third parties is at your own risk. Should you discover that we have linked pages with illegal or questionable content or refer to them in another form, please let us know so that we can remove the link as soon as possible.

                            14. Data protection

                              We collect, process and use personal data insofar as this is necessary in accordance with our data protection guidelines.

                              15. Deletion of services for users

                                COACHINHO can delete (terminate) the use of the services by the user, in particular in the event of misuse or fraudulent use of the services by the user or in the event of justified suspicion of misuse or fraudulent use of the services by the user; if the user does not comply with the essential provisions of these terms of use (in particular the provisions in the aforementioned paragraphs 7 and 9); if the website is used on a smartphone on which usage restrictions or security functions of the manufacturer have been overridden or otherwise blocked functions have been activated.

                                16. Contact

                                  For complaints, feedback or questions about the services, please contact our support team under

                                  17. Miscellaneous

                                    17.1 The current version of the terms of use can be viewed on the website. Corresponding links on our social media platforms lead to the current version of the terms of use on the website.

                                    17.2 In certain circumstances, COACHINHO may need to amend and / or supplement these Terms of Use (e.g. in the event of changes to the legal provisions applicable to the app). In this case, COACHINHO will inform the user in a suitable form about the corresponding changes to the conditions. When using the app, this usually takes place as soon as the app is opened (again) by the user. The user is then asked to agree to the changed conditions. If the user does not agree or refuses to confirm the changed conditions, (i) the user has the right to immediate termination for good cause in accordance with paragraph 13 above, and (ii) COACHINHO has the right to immediate termination for an important reason in accordance with paragraph 15 above, provided that the corresponding termination appears necessary for COACHINHO and that the user is not disadvantaged by this contrary to good faith. COACHINHO will inform the user of the aforementioned possible consequences of a rejection of the changed conditions of use by the user if the user is informed of the corresponding changed conditions.

                                    17.3 COACHINHO is neither willing nor obliged to participate in a dispute settlement procedure in a consumer arbitration board. 

                                    17.4 The laws of the Federal Republic of Germany apply to these terms of use. 

                                    17.5 Should individual provisions of these terms of use become invalid in whole or in part, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. The invalid provision must then be replaced by an enforceable provision that comes as close as possible economically to the purpose of the invalid provision. The same applies in the event that the terms of use contain loopholes.
