14. Termination of the contract, repayment of fees paid in advance, account deletion and account “freeze”
14.1. You can request the deletion of your EINO account at any time. This can be done via the EINO internal area or via email. In the latter case, the cancellation/deletion request must be sent from exactly the email account with which the account was created. When deleting the account, a distinction is made as to whether:
a) an immediate deletion should be initiated (countdown of 72 hours per click) or
b) the deletion should take place automatically after the paid services have expired (countdown of 72 hours after the paid service has expired ).
In case a, you also confirm that you waive any existing claims to benefits (e.g. through add-ons paid in advance). Within 72 hours you will be
informed several times via email about how to back up the data from your account
14.2. The right of both parties to terminate the contract for good cause remains unaffected. An important reason for termination by EINO exists in particular if the continuation of the contractual relationship until the end of the statutory notice period is unreasonable for EINO, taking into account all the circumstances of the individual case and weighing up the interests of both parties. The following events are particularly important reasons:
- Non-payment of paid EINO services booked by you (direct debit or credit card debit does not work)
- your failure to comply with legal requirements;
- a breach of contractual obligations, in particular from sections 3, 6 and 7.3 of these contractual conditions;
- The reputation of the services offered by EINO will not only be significantly affected by you;
- They promote associations, communities, methods or activities that are monitored by security or child protection authorities;
- You harm one or more other users;
- You are a member of a sect or a controversial religious community.
14.3. If there is good cause, EINO can also impose the following sanctions against you, regardless of termination:
- Deletion of content that you have posted on the EINO marketplace for other EINO users to download;
- issuing a warning;
- (temporary) blocking of access to the services offered by EINO.
14.4. If the contract is terminated or access is blocked in accordance with this section, you will no longer be entitled to a refund of any fees paid in advance.
14.5. After confirmation of cancellation/deletion by EINO, you have the following in accordance with 14..1. The period mentioned above still has access to all functions in order to export your data if necessary.
14.6. To protect valuable resources, EINO deletes free user accounts if they are found to be completely inactive for 60 consecutive days. This account deletion
will be announced to you via email in advance after 40, 50 and 59 days of inactivity. This gives you adequate time to save the contents of the account using the export function if necessary. EINO will keep the account safe for another 30 days afterwards. If you wish to reactivate your account for the first time within this period (after the 60 days have elapsed), EINO can do this by paying a one-off fee.
14.7. If the deletion involves an account to which other EINO users were invited and connected (see user management), these users will be informed about the upcoming process. At the time of shutdown, the connections between the respective invited user and the inviting account are then severed. Any impacts associated with this process are not the responsibility of EINO.
14.8. If it occurs in the course of the 14.7. If the deletion described is an account with paid functions, these functions are no longer available to a previously invited and now isolated account. These can then be added back to your own account at EINO at any time under your own responsibility.
14.9. EINO offers a so-called “Freeze” service. This allows you to “freeze” an EINO account – whether free or paid – for a maximum period of 1 year. If there are impending or planned long offline periods, you can prevent the deletion of your account or minimize the running costs of your account and ensure that the data continues to exist. Within this requirement, a corresponding message will be displayed after login – always with the option of authorizingly lifting the “freeze”. The fees for such a service may vary and will therefore only be provided upon request to the support team.
