Terms Of Use

To use the Cuvent application (hereinafter the "App") on your device, you must agree to these Terms of Use. Please read the Terms of Use carefully.

1. Parties

(1) Cuvent is provided by Cuvent Technologies UG (haftungsbeschraenkt), (hereinafter "Cuvent", "we" or "us").

(2) A contract for the use of the App is concluded exclusively between Cuvent and any natural person who installs the App accepting these Terms of Use (hereinafter also referred to as the “User”). These Terms of Use exclusively govern the contractual relationship between Cuvent and yourself in relation to your use of the App on any device if you are a User in the European Union.

2. Scope of Application

(1) Cuvent provides the App as an application for devices with the operating systems iOS (Apple) and Android (Google).

(2) The App is aimed at users who are of legal age at the time of conclusion of the contract. Minors under 18 years of age may use the App only under the supervision of their parents or guardians, who must also effectively represent the respective minor when concluding the usage contract in order for it to come into effect. In all other situations, Cuvent will refuse to conclude a contract with minors.

(3) Any conflicting or separate terms and conditions of the User shall not become part of the contract. This also applies if Cuvent does not expressly contradict the terms and conditions of the User.

You can find all further information on the processing of personal data by Cuvent in the privacy statement available at: https://cuvent.com/app-privacy-policy.

(4) The user assures that he uses and enjoys the Services’ benefits in a way that these Terms and our usage policies, such as our Community Guidelines, allow.

3. Registration and Conclusion of Contract

(1) All Users must register in order to use the App (hereinafter: Registration). Users can complete the Registration with a phone number and a verification code which is sent to the Users' provided phone number.

(2) The completed Registration represents the User's offer to conclude the contract. Cuvent reserves the right to refuse this offer without giving reasons. With the activation of the User account, Cuvent accepts the offer of the User.

(3) It is also possible for Users to use certain limited functions of the App without registration (e.g. video chats to which a registered User has invited other persons). In this case, your use of the App will be considered your acceptance to these Terms of Use. This acceptance, however, does not give unregistered Users a legal claim to use any of the other functions of the App.

4. No Withdrawal Right

The App is made available to Users free of charge. Hence, the User is not afforded a withdrawal right even where the App is used by the User as a consumer.

5. App Use and Functions

(1) The App is a location-based online application which Users can use to meet, socialize and chat with other Users and to promote events in their vicinity. Cuvent is entitled but not obliged to extend these services by adding new functions and features to the App.

(2) The App might offer additional functions such as video chat or other communication channels, however, without guaranteeing to the User that such functions will be available in more recent versions of the App.

(3) Since the App is provided free of charge, Cuvent reserves the right to unilaterally change the scope of functions described above at any time. In this case, Cuvent will announce the change with reasonable notice in the App or otherwise.
