2. Paid services
2.1. Individual services of the Hero21 Apps require the payment of a fee. The scope of the services contained in the Hero21 Apps and usable by the user depends on whether and which services are used free of charge or against payment. If the services are used free of charge, the user has access to certain basic functions and information of the respective services. An extended range of functions is available to the user if the services are activated for the user as part of a subscription. The Hero21 Apps provide an overview of the available chargeable services, their fees, scope of services, restrictions and running times in the Hero21 Apps. Payment of the fee only entitles the user to access the services available or visible in the presentation of the offer. All mentioned fees are inclusive of the respective valid sales tax.
2.2. The individual steps of the purchase of chargeable services can be found in the descriptions within the app store of the third party, Hero21 Apps or the website www.thevisionboard.app. The user submits an offer with an order. The activation of the order button alone does not constitute a purchase contract for the chargeable content. Only after successful payment and the corresponding electronic confirmation, the order is considered accepted and the sales contract is concluded. Acceptance can also be implied, in particular by activating the chargeable services.
2.3. The Hero21 Apps offer the option to activate the entire content of the Hero21 App through one payment. Hero21 Apps offers subscriptions and one-time purchases with different minimum terms. With the activation of the chargeable content, the user receives the right to use it permanently for his own, non-commercial purposes on all compatible devices connected to his App Store account. Further use – in particular publication on the Internet, as well as unauthorized copying, distribution or making the contents accessible via the Internet, whether free of charge or against payment – is not permitted. The same applies to the transcription of the contents, the removal of copyright information and source references as well as any other processing or manipulation of the download. The rights of use granted are not transferable or sublicensable and are subject to full payment. Legally admissible uses according to the copyright law are not restricted.
The Provider is entitled to revise, update or otherwise change the contents at any time if this should be necessary for technical, legal or content-related reasons. The Provider considers all purchased digital data to be available for download for a reasonable period of time. However, an unlimited data backup and data availability cannot be guaranteed. The user should therefore store his downloads locally on connected devices in parallel. The user will be informed expressly and with reasonable advance notice if the content can no longer be provided as downloads by the Provider in the future.
2.4. The payment methods that are visible in the offer presentation are accepted; the payment process is generally operated by appropriate service Providers. In particular, this may involve the payment systems offered by the respective App Store operators. Insofar as the respective service Provider includes its own General Terms and Conditions of business or use (GTC) in individual cases, these shall apply exclusively to payment processing. If necessary, the user must have a user account with the service Provider.
2.5. The Provider of the App Store can influence the duration or extension of the App Store or its available fee-based services. Depending on the App Store, fee-based services may expire after the end of the agreed term
without notice being required, or the respective contract term may be extended indefinitely or by a corresponding period. Details can be found in the terms and conditions or in the respective offer presentation of the App Store. The App Store offers the possibility to terminate fee-based services via a corresponding menu item.
2.6. If charges cannot be collected and if the user is responsible for the event that caused the charge, he shall bear all costs incurred as a result. If payments made are charged back or the user does not pay fees,
Hero21 is entitled to block all or access to individual services from Hero21 Apps.
2.7. The Provider may offer paid services to users free of charge for a certain period of time. Which user can participate in a test offer is at the sole discretion of the Provider. The Provider may change the scope of the test offer or terminate the provision of a test offer at any time.
2.8. The Provider reserves the right to change its business model at any time and, for example, to provide certain or all services only against payment. The respective fees are published in the Hero21sApp. The user is free to terminate the use or to decide on the further use, which is then subject to a charge.
2.9. The Provider reserves the right to assert further claims due to delayed payment.
3. Right of withdrawal for consumers
If users are consumers in the sense of § 13 Allgemeine bürgerliche Gesetzbuch (ABGB), the following right of withdrawal applies.
3.1. Right of withdrawal
The user has the right to revoke the concluded contract within fourteen days without giving reasons. The revocation period is fourteen days from the date of conclusion of the contract.

If the user has purchased a chargeable service via the website www.thevisionboard.app, the user must contact the Provider (mHero21 e.U., Kastellfeldgasse 10, 8010 Graz, Austria; e-mail: [email protected]) by means of a clear declaration (e.g. a letter sent by post, or e-mail) of his decision to revoke this contract. The user may use the following sample revocation form for this purpose, which is, however, not mandatory. In order to comply with the revocation period, it is sufficient for the user to send notification of the exercise of the right of revocation before the expiry of the revocation period.
3.2. Consequences of withdrawal
If the user cancels a contract with the Provider, the Provider will repay the user all payments he has received from him immediately and at the latest within fourteen days from the day on which the notification of cancellation of the contract was received by the Provider. The Provider shall use the same means of payment for this repayment as the User used for the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise with the user; in no event shall charges be made to the user on the basis of this repayment.
If the user requests that the services begin during the withdrawal period, the user shall pay the Provider a reasonable amount corresponding to the proportion of services already provided by the time the user notifies the Provider of the exercise of the right of withdrawal in respect of this Agreement in relation to the total amount of services provided in the Agreement.

11. Final provisions
11.1. The Provider makes every effort to ensure trouble-free operation of the app and to keep it available as far as possible. However, it is pointed out that complete or complete availability is not technically feasible.
