§15 Liability of happiness.com/ Happy

  1. We do not assume any liability for the constant accessibility or availability of the happiness.com/ Happy platform and are not liable for downtimes due to necessary maintenance work or new errors, as far as these were not foreseeable and can be reasonably expected from a conscientious average developer.
  2. An editorial review of the content posted by the Users does not take place. We therefore accept no liability for the accuracy, completeness and usability of the information and content published on the happiness.com/ Happy platform.
  3. According to the statutory provisions, we are not obliged as a service provider to monitor the content of third parties or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. These contents also include links set by you within happiness.com/ Happy. However, if we become aware of any illegal activity by a User or information within happiness.com/ Happy, we will immediately remove or disable the User's access to happiness.com/ Happy.
  4. We do not check the websites of other providers for their content or legality and can therefore not influence their design.

You use the links to third-party websites at your own risk.
  5. We accept no liability for any displeasure of the happiness.com/ Happy offer provided in accordance with the agreement, or of individual contents, services and performances, nor for the fact that you can actually establish successful contacts with others at happiness.com/ Happy.
  6. We are exclusively liable for damages caused by ourselves, our legal representatives or our vicarious agents intentionally or grossly negligently. Liability for simple negligence is limited to the violation of essential contractual obligations (so-called main contractual obligations). The amount of our liability shall then be limited to the damage foreseeable at the time of conclusion of the contract and typical for this type of contract. Main contractual obligations are such obligations, the fulfilment of which is essential for the proper execution of the contract and on the observance of which the User as contractual partner may regularly rely.
  7. As far as our liability is limited according to these conditions, this limitation does not apply in case of injury of body, life and health, as well as in case of liability according to the regulations of product liability laws.
  8. The identification of persons on the Internet is only possible to a limited extent. Therefore, we cannot exclude the possibility that false data will be entered during registration on happiness.com/ Happy. happiness.com/ Happy therefore does not guarantee the real identity of a User.

You can find information about this on the happiness.com/ Happy platform or you can request it at cooperation@happiness.com.
  5. Teachers of the happiness.com/ Happy Happiness Academy courses can see the User data of Users enrolled in their course. This means that when you sign up for a course, the teacher of the course will have access to your email address and the user name you used to sign up for the happiness.com/ Happy platform. Therefore, Users might also contact you outside happiness.com/ Happy via email if necessary.
  6. If teachers, therapists or other service providers contact you via the happiness.com/ Happy platform and point you to your offers, it is important to always consider whether the remuneration required is appropriate and to take appropriate precautionary measures.
