General Terms and Conditions
The following General Terms and Conditions (GTC) shall govern the relationship between you as our contractual partner (“you” or “user”) and us, the Fundsback German Pension Contribution Service UG (haftungsbeschränkt), Schiffgraben 43, 30175 Hannover, Germany (“we” or “Fundsback”), for using our online portal/website (the „website“: fundsback.org) and any other form of communication (email, chat, telephone, fax etc.) for information and support regarding the organisation of a stay in Germany as well as for the arrangement of related services.
The present GTC shall govern the relationship between the user and Fundsback for using the website and any other form of communication (email, chat, telephone, fax etc.) for information and support regarding the organisation of a stay in Germany as well as for the arrangement of related services. By using the services offered by Fundsback the GTC are deemed to have been agreed per the current version available on the website at https://www.sympat.me/about-us/general-terms-conditions/. The present GTC shall not apply to any relationships between the users and third parties, even if such relationships came into existence by contribution of Fundsback.
The German version of the GTC is binding in all respects. The English translation only serves as a non-binding assistance to the user. Any divergence of the English text or its interpretation does not affect the exclusive validity of the German text and its interpretation.
Fundsback via its website and other forms of communication provides information and support regarding the organisation of a stay in Germany as well as for the arrangement of related services. Fundsback provides its services to the users free of charge unless for individual services a fee has been explicitly agreed upon.
Fundsback makes every effort to ensure that the information made available to users is always current, complete and accurate. However, Fundsback assumes no liability for the accuracy of information provided to users, unless there are any legal obligations, such as primarily from §§ 60 to 66 of the German Insurance Contract Act. In particular, the provision of information does not constitute a consulting service on the part of Fundsback and does not under any circumstances replace legal or tax advice. None of the information provided is to be construed as a guarantee.
Within the scope of information about services and their arrangement, Fundsback limits itself to the offers of individual cooperation partners whereby Fundsback for successful arrangement may receive a commission respectively expense allowance from the respective cooperation partner or a fee from the user.
Fundsback does not assume any liability or guarantee for the availability and content of the services presented, in respect of which the respective cooperation partner with whom the user enters into an agreement is solely responsible. Furthermore, Fundsback is not responsible for the content of the websites of its cooperation partners.
Fundsback assumes no liability for technical errors or failures in the website or any other computer or communication system beyond the control of Fundsback. This applies in particular to errors and failures caused by a defect or overload of the communication link. Liability is also excluded if the user culpably fails to inform Fundsback immediately of any technical errors or failures. Fundsback does not guarantee that the website and the user account are permanently accessible.
4. User’s Obligations
Via the intended means of transmission (website or other forms of communication), the user must provide the personal information required for the use of the services of Fundsback. This applies in particular to information which serves to identify the user, if necessary, or which is required by law to be obtained. The user is responsible for ensuring that the information provided to Fundsback is current, complete and accurate. Fundsback reserves the right to leave unprocessed requests based on false or inadequate information and to claim damages from culpable users. Fundsback may permanently exclude users acting intentionally in this way from its services.
The use of individual services may require the user to register by setting up a user account on the website. The use of a user account requires the participation of the user in the intended log-in details such as password allocation or the use of other authentication procedures. Users for whom a user account is set up on the website are obliged to ensure that third parties do not gain access to their access data. Any suspicion of improper access by third parties to the user account must be reported immediately to Fundsback by the user.
The users are obliged to immediately and diligently review the content and completeness of the documents received due to an arranged contract.
Users can terminate the contractual relationship with Fundsback at any time without adherence to a period of notice, unless for individual services a different termination provision has been agreed upon.
Fundsback reserves the right to extraordinarily terminate the contractual relationship with users for a significant reason without adherence to a period of notice. Especially the violation of the user’s obligations stipulated in number I.4 of the GTC can be considered as such reason.
7. Applicable Law, Jurisdiction
The contractual relationship between the user and Fundsback shall be governed by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the rules of private international law. For all disputes between the user and Fundsback arising out or in connection with their contractual relationship the place of exclusive jurisdiction shall be Hannover.
