1.1 - Mr. Lars Gerckens, Schanzenstrasse 12a, 20357 Hamburg, Germany, operates a software for Mac, iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch called "Tyme" (hereinafter referred to as "TYME"). TYME is an app for time recording, workload and billing that addresses both adult consumers and entrepreneurs.
1.2 - The consumer is any natural person who acquires TYME for a purpose that is predominantly not attributable to his commercial or self-employed professional activity. Entrepreneur is any natural or legal person or partnership with legal capacity who, when concluding the contract, acts in the exercise of their commercial or self-employed professional activity.
1.3 - The present General Terms and Conditions of Business are an integral part of the contract and apply to all business relations between Lars Gerckens and the TYME users, including future business relations. The terms and conditions are accepted by you in their entirety in the version valid at the time of the conclusion of the contract. Any regulations deviating from these terms and conditions, in particular your possible terms and conditions are hereby contradicted.
TYME is only available from the Apple App Store or Apple Mac App Store. To download TYME, you must register with Apple or log in to the Apple App Store or Apple Mac App Store using your existing Apple ID. You can then download TYME free of charge to your mobile device (Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch).
TYME can be tested free of charge by users with different functionalities (trial period) and can be used for a fee as a standalone application or with others in a team. TYME users can choose between the various offers within the app.
To fully test TYME, you can make a trial subscription. The trial subscription period is 14 days. The trial subscription automatically converts to a paid subscription after the trial period if it is not cancelled 24 hours before the end of the trial period.
With the paid Team version several TYME users have the possibility to record their times together. To set up a team, a team member (so-called "Team Admin") completes a subscription to the desired Tyme version within the TYME app as part of an "in-app purchase". All other team members only need to download TYME free of charge from the Apple App Store or Mac App Store.
The team admin can invite other TYME users to join the team after signing a Tyme subscription. TYME sends an invitation by e-mail to the potential team members selected by the team admin. This invitation contains a confirmation link that allows TYME users to click on a link to join a team and then record and settle times together with the other team members.
4.1 - Tyme subscription contracts are initially concluded for the selected period (1 month or 1 year). You will automatically renew your subscription for the same period of time until you cancel your subscription in its Apple App Store account under the "Manage Subscription" (if subscribed via the App Store) menu item (or Tyme's license screen) before the expiration date.
4.2 - In the event of termination, the Tyme functionality will no longer be available with the end of the respective subscription period.
5.2 - The prices quoted in the Apple App Store, Apple Mac App Store or TYME App at the time of ordering apply. The prices are shown in your local currency and include VAT.
5.3 - In case of a renewal of a subscription (see section 4.1) the user has to pay a new fee for the renewal period. The costs for the renewal period will be charged by Apple at least 24 hours before the renewal period begins.
5.4 - The remuneration for a Tyme subscription is due upon conclusion of the contract and each renewal of the contract for the respective term of the subscription.
5.5 - All payments, both for purchases in the Apple App Store or Apple Mac App Store and for in-app purchases, will be processed by Apple. When you purchase or subscribe, Apple offers the payment methods offered by Apple. For an overview of available payment methods in the Apple App Store, visit https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202631
