VI. Scope of services to be rendered by Preventicus

  1. PREVENTICUS is not obligated to examine or verify the accuracy, completeness or up-to-dateness of the data reported by users. For the performance of its services, PREVENTICUS may impute that the data provided by the User are correct, complete and up-to-date. If the data provided by the User are not correct, complete or up-to-date, the User must automatically accept the fact that the findings obtained by PREVENTICUS may not be applicable. The analyses, therefore, must always be deemed of limited conclusiveness and make no claim to completeness or accuracy. PREVENTICUS therefore assumes no warranty or guarantee for the accuracy and/or completeness of the results and other details, and in particular, not in a medical or clinical sense.
  2. The findings obtained by PREVENTICUS are exclusively intended for information purposes. Every analysis is abstract and therefore always constitutes non-binding information, containing neither details on the actual health condition of the User nor advice nor recommendations relating to the treatment of diseases or frailties. Such information, advice or recommendations can only be provided by a physician or other medically or therapeutically trained personnel. PREVENTICUS is not capable of administering any medical or other specialized care- or health-related examinations and is not obligated to perform said services. The respective analysis is no substitute for the medical history, examination, diagnosis or therapeutic recommendations rendered by a physician. The findings obtained do not represent a diagnosis and therefore under no circumstances do they replace or supplement personal consultation, care or treatment by medical or other medically trained specialized personnel, who render the diagnosis, recommend treatment strategies or administer medication. The analyses merely deliver non-binding indicators of potential risks. No analysis is a substitute for a doctor's examination. PREVENTICUS is not obligated to render a conclusive health risk assessment and/or therapeutic decisions. A risk may indeed exist even though a finding does not indicate any risk. PREVENTICUS shall not assume any health care for the User. PREVENTICUS therefore expressly requests all Users to always obtain medical and/or a physician's advice without delay in the case of disease symptoms or health problems. PREVENTICUS hereby expressly advises against initiating, changing or ending any therapeutic interventions until consultation with a physician.
  3. PREVENTICUS shall apply the utmost care and rely on the identifiably most current medical trends to verify details when rendering its services. PREVENTICUS provides no warranty as to the accuracy, completeness, up-to-dateness or usefulness of these data.
  4. Whether and how the User utilizes the analyses is at his own risk. PREVENTICUS and its executive bodies, executives, employees, vicarious agents, partners, affiliates and licensors assume no responsibility whatsoever for decisions made by you based on the website and/or the Information, such as decisions as to whether or not to consult caregivers or accept treatment by medical or healthcare professionals. You hereby waive all and any claims you have or may have in the future against PREVENTICUS and its executive bodies, executives, employees, vicarious agents, partners, affiliates and licensors and herewith declare to hold the aforementioned harmless from any claims, litigation, costs or for any direct or indirect damages arising in connection with the use of the Information. This also applies to lost earnings.
  5. No agency or commissioned relationship exists between PREVENTICUS and the User.
  6. PREVENTICUS makes no representations or gives any guarantees whatsoever that the App's operation is reliable, interruption- and error-free. PREVENTICUS assumes no obligation with regard to the functional suitability or functionality of the smartphone or other hardware employed by the User.


VII. Payment

The User hereby agrees to have payment transactions for the paid services rendered by PREVENTICUS carried out by a service provider commissioned by PREVENTICUS (e.g. e-payment provider or credit card company). The User may use any conventional and reasonable payment modality that is free-of-charge.

Irrespective of the reason for the claim, PREVENTICUS shall assume no liability beyond this. The aforementioned liability restrictions and exclusions shall not apply to claims arising from damage from injury to life, body or health or for claims under the Product Liability Act.
