The following General Terms and Conditions (GTC) govern the contractual relationship between greetix.com (hereinafter referred to as "Greetix") and the natural persons and legally responsible partnerships (hereinafter "user(s)"), who wish to use the tool offered by Greetix to upload and send images to a slideshow and register for this purpose.

The terms used below, such as users, consumers, etc., apply to all genders (m/f/d).

Greetix is available to consumers and business customers as explained below: According to these terms, "consumers" are defined as users who do not pursue commercial or business purposes under Section 13 of the German Civil Code (BGB). "Business customers" are users who use Greetix in the course of their business or professional self-employment (Section 14.1 BGB).

Possible terms and conditions specified by the user are not legally valid unless Greetix explicitly contradicts them in advance.

1 Service Description

1.1 Greetix's services include the ability to obtain both free and paid access to the online photo service greetix.com. Here, users can create a personal "event" secured by an individual code, allowing their guests to send photos and text messages to this event live during the event with their smartphones. They can use the messenger app of their choice (WhatsApp, Telegram, Facebook Messenger). No new application needs to be installed on the smartphone to use Greetix. The images can be displayed during the event via a slideshow on a display device (projector, screen, TV, etc.). The images can be downloaded individually in the free version and collectively in the Plus and Business versions 24 hours after the event has taken place (an event ends 24 hours after the last file was uploaded). After that, a photo book can be ordered with the event images. Greetix is working on further offers, features, and services.

1.2 Greetix reserves the right to restrict, interrupt, or discontinue the provision of services at any time. Whenever possible, Greetix will inform users in advance in such cases. If Greetix continues to be used after a change notice, the changes are considered accepted.

1.3 The scope and price of Greetix's paid offers can be found in the respective service description. Greetix reserves the right to change these. In this case, the user will be informed on the website or by email before the changes take effect. The change is considered approved by the user unless they object before it takes effect. In this case, the contractual relationship will be terminated with immediate effect.

1.4 Greetix offers three models for creating an event. The "Free" version is free and includes up to 10 guests and the option to download images individually. The "Plus," "Pro," and "Business" versions are paid and allow up to 100 (Plus), 350 (Pro), and 1000 (Business) guests to participate, along with the collective download of all images and files. Access is valid for one event and is paid for with a one-time payment. Access is usable from the moment the event is created on Greetix. Uploads are permanently possible after the event date. Downloading all files is also possible without time limits after the event. All uploaded media will only be deleted by the operator if the user removes the event on greetix.com. Payments are processed through a payment service provider. The general terms and conditions of the payment provider apply.
The costs of ordering a photo book are calculated individually and depend on the quantity of photos ordered.

1.5 If a payment cannot be collected due to insufficient funds or other reasons for which the user is responsible, Greetix is entitled to collect the amount plus any applicable fees, possibly using a collection service.
If payment for a paid offer from Greetix is not made, the user's access will be blocked, although the contract remains in force. The user is not entitled to compensation for missed usage due to the blocking, e.g., in the form of a credit note. Access to the account will only be restored once the outstanding amount plus any applicable fees have been paid.

1.6 A stable internet connection is required to use Greetix. Refunds due to lack of internet connectivity are excluded.
