User agreement between the timz UG, ℅ Kateryna Levina, Schwedterstraße 266, 10119 Berlin, hereinafter referred to as timz, timz.io or timz UG and the user of the platform timz.io.
We are currently in the beta phase with the entire system. All users are considered beta users.
Aim of our platform
timz.io serves to help organizations and companies to improve their cooperation. We are particularly interested in accelerating knowledge creation processes with modern tools. The world is changing and today it is more important than ever: The adaptability of organizations determines their success. The faster employees build up knowledge, the more flexibly your organization can adapt to developments in the environment. timz.io is therefore a platform to build up useful knowledge faster.
For this purpose, we offer you a constantly expanding range of instruments that you can use flexibly.
timz UG, ℅ Kateryna Levina, Schwedterstraße 266, 10119 Berlin, HG Charlottenburg, HRB 216337 B,
is the company offering this service.
You can use the service if you are at least 18 years old and/or have full legal capacity.
timz.io is in an early phase of development. Many functions are in the beta phase, which brings with it a particular instability. In particular, server content may be lost due to conversions. Always back up valuable material on your own systems to avoid a total loss. We try to provide you with a download function for your own content.
We are currently in the first testing phase. This means that all users are test users. Functions can be/will be dysfunctional, inaccessible or disappear again. Please be aware that under certain circumstances we may delete your content without warning. We try to avoid this, but economic, legal or technical reasons may cause us to do so.
Please read carefully which services we use in order to independently and correctly assess the expectations regarding the possible confidentiality of your content, the content of your company and your employees on our platform.
We do our best to secure your content. Unfortunately, the data scandals of the past have shown that industrial espionage happens on such a high level that high security content should only be stored on separately secured systems. We do not take any responsibility for such content and expressly prohibit storing it on our platform.
You can use certain timz functions without an account. For the majority of timz functions, however, you must register as a user. Since our service is aimed at a working environment, we ask you to provide your real name or the name with which you actually want to be addressed. Your name and video may appear on publicly visible pages. For this reason, please discuss the usage with the respective host in detail or, in case of doubt, avoid contributing with your own content, for example, if you do not know the person or do not trust them.
In the beta phase, these publications may be made by your colleagues or others to whom you have made your content available without you having been asked explicitly. Check bilaterally about the use of your content, images and personality.
We do not take any responsibility for the use of your content by third parties or in any other environment of the timz.io website.
Authorizations and restrictions
However, the use is restricted in the following points:
You may not access the services and content of timz.io for the purpose of downloading, streaming, copying, selling, renting or in any way violating the copyright, personal rights and/or rights of use of the content or its authors.
You may not bypass security features of the Service in order to use it fraudulently in any way or use the Service to commit fraudulent acts.
You may not access the Service using automated processes and procedures.
Any rights not expressly granted to you by this user agreement remain subject to the express consent of timz.io.
Test users may use the service for free. This free service is for test purposes only and may be cancelled or discontinued by timz UG at any time. From a certain point in time on, the service may only be available within the framework of paid offers.
Changes to the service
Copyright and rights of use
Please make sure that you own the necessary copyrights and rights of use for all content you distribute on timz.io. You are legally solely responsible for the content you distribute and indemnify timz.io from all claims of third parties. The content you distribute via timz.io may not contain any intellectual property of third parties or any other material protected by copyright and not validly licensed by you for this purpose. Please note that the distribution radius of the material provided by you may be extended.
Your license to timz.io
You grant timz.io the right to distribute the material you provide, subject to the obvious purpose of communication with other people. The radius of distribution may vary and change. In the event of a generally visible publication of your content on publicly accessible websites by another user, we will endeavour to grant you an explicit consent option, which you may revoke at any time.
Note: In the initial phase, users who have access to your content can copy it in our “Flowers” into so-called iFrames and publish it on other websites. Please make sure that you only use the service in trustworthy groups as long as the technology here cannot guarantee sufficient protection.
Your license to other users
You grant other users the non-exclusive right to interact with your content. Other users can therefore attach content, especially content that contradicts your content, complements it, connects it with other topics or develops it to a higher value via deliberation. timz.io is a platform that aims to accelerate knowledge creation processes. It is therefore possible that your content contributes significantly to the generation of new knowledge and is used by the user group you belong to. By uploading content to timz.io you expressly grant this user group the right to use your content for this purpose. Questions of remuneration for your contributions must be clarified with the users or the user group, e.g. the company or organisation or with your coworkers, employees, colleagues, independently of timz.io. By uploading materials you confirm that you will keep timz.io free of all claims, both your own and possible claims of third parties.
You grant the host (inviting person with administrative rights in group discussions) permission to remove your content and to allow other users to view, rate, object to or add to your content in any way.
Term of the license and removal of your content
This license agreement is valid until your content is removed, which can be done by the host, by timz.io, by governmental authorities or at any time by yourself. We have no control over devices interacting with your content in offline mode and can only perform deletions when the devices are back online again, for these devices the license is valid until the time of deletion. If you no longer have a license to publish the content you provided, you must remove it immediately.
Blocking and termination of accounts
You can delete your account at any time. Attention: In the beta phase this will only be possible via email to [email protected]
timz.io can block or delete your account completely or in parts at any time. This can be triggered during the beta phase by technical malfunctions, but also in case of illegal or irregular content or for other reasons. In particular, we must do so in the event of official instructions or court orders. Even in case of economic impropriety timz.io reserves the right to restrict the functions of the account or to delete it.
Since we are currently in the test phase and the users are considered internal test users or alpha users there are no price plans yet. These will be developed during the test phase. The free use of the service does not constitute a claim for further free use and can be terminated by timz.io at any time. The test accounts can be transferred by timz.io into fee-based accounts at any time. The fees will then not accrue automatically, but the user may agree to a pricing and billing model and continue to use the Service. For technical reasons, this procedure cannot be guaranteed and may change during the test phase.
Offline software and apps for download
timz.io may offer you the possibility to download software and run it directly on your devices. You grant us the right to update this software automatically, but we cannot guarantee the automatic update. You may use this software at any time worldwide and without restriction, but you may not copy, distribute, sell or modify it, even in part.
It is possible that our platform may contain links to public information. We do not assume any liability for their contents or legal conformity. If you provide links on our platform, you assume responsibility for the content towards the users of timz.io, the rights holders of the content and the legislator and keep timz.io free of any claims.
Login and registration
For login and registration at timz.io you need a working email account, with which we will communicate on various occasions. For example, the registration only works with a token that is provided to you for the current session. Please make sure that you always have access to your email account, because you can only enter our system through the dialogue with this email account. If you lose access to your email account, you will not be able to enter timz.io again. At least in the beta phase this rule will apply, for later phases other systems may be used.
About this agreement
We reserve the right to adapt and change this agreement at any time in a reasonable manner, for example to contractually cover new functions, to make security adjustments or to take into account economic or technical changes. We will endeavour to inform you of any changes in good time. However, due to urgent situations, it may happen that changes take effect immediately. If you reject the changes, you must remove all uploaded content immediately. Possible claims of third parties to your content are the sole responsibility of you and you keep us free of them.
Effect of the agreement
If you terminate your use of the Service or cancel your account, or your account is terminated or deleted, some parts of this Agreement will continue in effect beyond the date of your termination or deletion of your account. This applies, in particular, to all license and contractual term agreements, as set forth in “About this Agreement”.
Should individual parts of this agreement be ineffective or illegal, this does not call into question the validity of the entire agreement and all other parts of the agreement and they remain fully effective and valid.
timz.io may transfer this agreement to subsidiaries, affiliates or buyers of the Service. In such event, the Agreement will remain in full force and effect and your assignee will be deemed to have accepted this Agreement and all related services.
The place of jurisdiction for disputed cases is Berlin. The parties shall attempt to resolve differences amicably and accept arbitration. The timz UG reserves the right to relocate and to indicate a new place of jurisdiction, possibly also to other jurisdictions. In such a case the validity of the agreement shall continue to exist.
If you behave contrary to the rules and we do not react immediately, this does not mean that we waive our rights as agreed upon, they remain valid nevertheless.
Validity: This agreement is valid from 1 March 2020.
