1.2 Additional terms and conditions

We reserve the right to make your use of certain 7Mind Services subject to additional terms and conditions. We will notify you before using such additional terms and conditions.

If you use 7Mind Services via the 7Mind App and you have downloaded the 7Mind App from the app store of a third party, the general terms and conditions and/​or terms of use of the app store will apply in addition to these General Terms and Conditions. In case of the iTunes store, such terms include, for example, the End User License Agreement for Licensed Applications” (which you will find at http://​www​.apple​.com/​l​e​g​a​l​/​i​n​t​e​r​n​e​t​-​s​e​r​v​i​c​e​s​/​i​t​u​n​e​s/ww/). You will find the terms of use for Google Play, for example, at https://​play​.google​.com/​i​n​t​l​/​d​e​_​d​e​/​a​b​o​u​t​/​p​l​a​y​-​t​e​r​m​s​.html. Please be sure to review the terms of use that apply in your country.

In the event of any conflicts, these Terms of Use will prevail.

2. Health Requirements

You will use the 7Mind Services at your own risk.

Anytime you use the 7Mind Services you must be in good health. If you have any known preexisting illnesses or health conditions, please first consult a physician before you begin to use the 7Mind Services.

3. Participation Requirements

To open a user account and to use the 7Mind Services you must be at least 18 years old and have full legal capacity.
By entering into a contract with Us you represent that you have no other user account with Us and that your user account has not been suspended or canceled in the past due to violations of our Terms of Use. In such cases We will not enter into another or new user agreement with you. You also represent that all information provided by you during the registration process is true and complete.

4. Conclusion of Contract, User Account

4.1 Registration process

To use the 7Mind Services, you must first register and open a user account. You can open a user account directly through the 7Mind App. When you register We will ask you to accept these General Terms and Conditions and our Data Privacy Policy.

In the alternative, you can also register with your Facebook account. In that case, the registration process will be complete once you have entered the account information for your Facebook account and have clicked the Confirm” button.

How a user agreement will be concluded depends on how you first register and whether you sign up for any additional, paid services.

4.2 Registration via mobile apps

If you want to register through the 7Mind App, a user agreement will result according to the rules of your app store. As a general rule, a binding contract will result at the moment you click on the Install” button in the store and you enter your password. To use the 7Mind Services, you must however still open a user account through the 7Mind App.

4.4 Conclusion of contract for paid subscription

You can activate additional services by purchasing a paid subscription. If you purchase additional services on our website www​.7mind​.de/en, a binding contract will result when you click on the Buy Now” button or a comparable button and you have successfully entered your payment information. If you purchase additional services through your 7Mind App, a subscription agreement will result when you click the Buy Now” button during an in-app purchase or a comparable button and when you have entered your password for the App Store, if required.

4.5Correction of input errors

If you wish to purchase a subscription on our website www​.7mind​.de/en, you may cancel the transaction at any time. You can also correct any input errors until you have successfully input your payment information.

If you want to purchase a subscription by in-app purchase through your 7Mind App, you will pay for the service through the account with your app store. Therefore please contact your app store if you want to correct any input errors.

5. Contract Terms

5.1 User agreement

The user agreement between you and Us that results when you open a user account will remain in effect for an indefinite term and will end when you delete the 7Mind App and terminate the user agreement.

5.2 Subscriptions

Our subscriptions have different minimum contract terms. All subscriptions will be automatically renewed for the time period of the selected minimum contract term until either you or We terminate the subscription. You may however opt out of the automatic renewal of your subscription at any time by choosing the appropriate settings in the account with your app store.

6. Right of revocation

In some countries you have a legal right of revocation. This is the case, for example, in all countries of the European Union. You can find out whether you have a legal right of revocation by referring, for example, to the terms of use of your app store. Please refer to those terms of use to find out to what extent you have such rights. In the United States, for example, you have no right of revocation.

If you have a legal right of revocation, please read the following information about how you can exercise this right and what revocation will mean for you.

6.1 Information about revocation

If you have a legal right of revocation, this right will come into existence as soon as you enter into a user agreement or subscription agreement with us.

You may revoke the contract within 14 days of the contract date for any or no reason, in which case the contract will be unwound.

To exercise your right of revocation, you must clearly notify Us (e.g., by letter, telefax, or e-mail) that you no longer wish to be bound by the contract. For this purpose you may, but do not have to, use the attached standard revocation form. Any clear notice will suffice. If you exercise this option, We will confirm receipt of your notice of revocation (e.g., by e-mail). Your notice of revocation will be timely as long as you send it before the revocation period has expired. Please address any notice of revocation to the following address:
_7Mind GmbH
_Schliemannstr. 21
_10437 Berlin
_Germany
_or
_contact: feedback@​7​mind.​de

6.2 Consequences of revocation

If you revoke the contract, the contract will be unwound. You will receive a refund for any payments you have already made for the revoked contract. We will issue the refund at the latest 14 days after We receive your notice of revocation. The refund will be made by the same method you used for the original transaction, unless We expressly agree otherwise with you.

If you have requested that services begin during the notice period for revocation, you must compensate Us in a reasonable amount for any services you have already received. This will be a prorated amount of the total amount due for the booked service, based on the time period from the start date of service until the date you provide Us with notice of revocation.

6.3 Standard form for notice of revocation

You may use the following form for your notice of revocation.
Please be sure to always tell Us which 7Mind service you wish to revoke. You can simply send Us an e-mail to

7. Termination

7.1 User agreement

You may cancel your user account at any time for any or no reason and thereby also terminate your user agreement in its entirety.

To do so, you must send Us an e-mail to feedback@​7​mind.​de, so that We can erase your user data. Please note that after your user account has been canceled all content and workout performance data will or may be erased by Us and you will no longer have access to content you have already purchased.
If at the time you cancel your account you still have a valid subscription, any amount you may already have paid for the subscription will not be refunded – either in whole or in part.
We have the right to terminate the user agreement for any or no reason in text form with two weeks’ prior notice, however not before the end of the minimum contract term or the end of the applicable renewal term of your subscription.

7.2 Subscriptions

You may terminate your subscription at any time for any or no reason effective as of the end of the minimum contract term or the end of the applicable renewal term.

Subscriptions purchased by in-app purchase must be canceled by changing the appropriate settings in the app store where you bought the subscription. If your subscription fee is collected by iTunes, We ask, notwithstanding the above, that for technical reasons you comply with a notice period of 24 hours to the end of the minimum contract term or the end of the respective renewal term. After cancellation of your subscription your user account and any other subscriptions will continue unless and until you also cancel such additional subscriptions.

Current in-app subscriptions cannot be terminated during the contract term.

In the alternative, you may also send Us an e-mail to feedback@​7​mind.​de or send Us a letter by regular mail if you purchased the subscription on the website.

We have the right to cancel any subscription at the end of the minimum contract term or the end of the applicable renewal term by providing you with two weeks’ prior notice in text form.

7.3 Termination for good cause

Irrespective of the foregoing provisions, either party has the right to terminate contracts for good cause. In particular, We have the right to terminate the user agreement or your subscription with immediate effect and to cancel your user account if you have seriously or repeatedly breached provisions of the user agreement and/​or these General Terms and Conditions or if you are behind with payment despite demand.

8. 7Mind Services

You may download and use the 7Mind App free of charge. You will receive access to all available exercises as part of a paid subscription.
When you download and use the 7Mind App, in particular through third-party networks or in other countries, you may incur transmission charges of your Internet service provider.

We strive to provide you with uninterrupted operation of the 7Mind Services and to make those services available as continuously as possible. We advise you however that full or uninterrupted availability is technically impossible, and We make no warranty for uninterrupted operation or any particular availability.

Our applications are continuously updated and adjusted for your security and for the stability of our applications. As a result, system requirements may change. We assume no obligation to make available to you any application (such as the 7Mind App) that will be functional on your terminal device at all times, if functionality on your terminal device should be limited by technological changes.

We reserve the right to change our business model at any time and, for example, to provide any or all 7Mind Services only in exchange for payment. You will then have the option to decide whether you wish to continue using the 7Mind Services in exchange for payment or stop using the 7Mind Services. Any such changes will have no effect on existing subscriptions until the end of the contract term.

Our understanding of human health is evolving on a continuous basis. This may affect how exercises are evaluated. Even though our workouts are based on current studies and findings, We make no guarantee that our workouts are in conformity with current research results or findings.

Please note that you may need certain tools or equipment to be able to fully use some 7Mind Services. Such tools or equipment are not part of the 7Mind Services and, if needed, must be purchased separately by you at your own cost.

9. Rights and Obligations of the User

The 7Mind Services are offered exclusively to consumers. This means you may not use the 7Mind Services for business or other commercial purposes.

You may not allow any third parties to use your user account, and you are not permitted to 

  • use paid services simultaneously on multiple terminal devices, unless such use is expressly permitted under the terms of the offered service;
  • allow any third parties to access or perceive the 7Mind Services, e.g., an undefined group of people by using the services in a public area (e.g., movie theaters, theaters, exhibitions, showrooms, hotels, bars, restaurants, or other public areas);
  • make accessible or transfer to any third parties access data transmitted or used for authentication or identification purposes;
  • circumvent any access control systems for paid services or take any other action to use services without authorization;
  • introduce into our IT systems any viruses, worms, Trojan horses, or other malware that may jeopardize or impair the functionality of the 7Mind Services; or
  • transfer or assign any rights or obligations under your contract with Us to any third parties.

When using the 7Mind Services you must also comply with the terms of contracts with third parties, in particular contracts with the app store or your Internet service provider.

To guarantee smooth communication with you, We ask that you include our e-mail address in the list of trusted senders at your email provider.

Licensed rights will lapse if and when you no longer have access to the relevant service (e.g., after your subscription has been terminated) or when the user agreement has ended. In the event of any violation of these provisions, We will have the right to terminate the agreement for good cause without notice in accordance with Section 7.3.

15. Personal data

We will process your personal data in compliance with our Data Privacy Policy. You will find the most recent version of our Data Privacy Policy at https://​7mind​.de/​e​n​/​p​r​i​v​a​c​y​-​p​olicy. The Data Privacy Policy regulates and discloses, in particular, to what extent your personal data will be viewable by other users and what options you have to control transfers of your personal data. In addition, We will inform you in detail how and where We process or cause third parties to process your personal data. By entering into the user agreement with Us you expressly consent to the foregoing provisions. Your legal rights of revocation remain unaffected.

We reserve the right to make changes to these General Terms and Conditions with effect for the future. We will notify you of any changes to our General Terms and Conditions at the latest four weeks before the planned effective date of the new version.
