Music2me GmbH (in the following only music2me) operates an online video-lesson-portal at music2me.com, whose users practice the guitar or piano through high-quality teaching videos.
1) Validity of terms and conditions/data protection
The following conditions apply to all music2me business areas. The services of music2me for users are exclusively offered on the basis of these terms and conditions.
2) Participation contract
The participation at music2me requires a concluded participation contract based on these terms and conditions. The participant’s contractual partner is the music2me company (limited liability). All private individuals have the right to participate. The participation is limited to people above the age of 18.
Please note that you will need an appropriate instrument for most of the exercises.
The participant makes an offer to conclude a participation contract by filling in and submitting the registration form. music2me only confirms the approval once the full scope of services has been activated. Only then has the participation contract become valid.
The activation of the full scope of services takes place against the participant’s prepayment for the paid period of time, immediately after payment receipt. Until then, the participation contract has not been executed yet, and music2me is free from any service obligation.
For subscriptions, the due participation amount will be debited at maturity according to the participant’s selected method of payment.
3) Revocation instruction
Right of revocation
You can revoke your contract declaration within 30 days in textual form (e.g. letter, fax, e-mail) without giving reasons. The deadline begins after receiving this instruction in textual form, but not before the contractual execution and neither before fulfilling our information duties according to article 246 § 2 in conjunction with § 1 paragraph 1 and 2 EGBGB (Introductory Law to the German Civil Code) as well as our duties according to § 312 g paragraph 1 section 1 BGB in conjunction with article 246 § 3 EGBGB (Introductory Law to the German Civil Code). Timely dispatch of revocation is suffice to send off the revocation in due time.
The revocation is to be sent to:
Bamberger Str. 9
In the case of an effective revocation, the mutually received benefits and, if necessary, uses made thereof (e.g. interest rates) are to be returned. If you cannot return the received benefits as well as uses (e.g. benefits of use) or if you can only hand them back partly or in a deteriorated condition, you are obliged to render us a value replacement in this respect. This could have the effect that you have to fulfil the contractual payment obligations for the period of time until revocation. The obligations to reimburse payments need to be fulfilled within 30 days. For you, the period begins from the moment of sending your notice of revocation, for us, with its reception.
Your right of evocation expires prematurely if the contract is, as your explicit wish, completely fulfilled on both sides before you have made use of your right of evocation.

11) Exclusion of liability
As music2me has no influence on data transmission via internet, as well as on the peculiarities and insecurities of the internet outside of the music2me server, music2me cannot assume liability for any errors concerning data transmission.
music2me makes an effort to offer the best possible online service availability, yet, for technical reasons (server backup, maintenance, etc.), a constant faultless availability cannot be guaranteed. Operational interruptions are possible. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability to damages caused by a temporal unavailability or an only limited availability. On annual average, music2me provides a minimum availability of 90% of its full services. Thereof, times are excluded in which the webserver was not accessible due to technical or any other problems, which were not in music2me’s area of influence (force majeure, third party negligence, etc.).
Any other liability of music2me, irrespective of their legal grounds, is limited to the actually so far paid-in sum of the regress/claim demanding participant. Other claims for compensation are excluded, provided they were not caused intentionally or due to gross negligence by music2me employees. This also includes the liability of material and immaterial (consequential) damages, which were caused by the unintended or technically caused erroneous data transmission. This preceding exemption and limit to liability does not apply to damages arising from injury to life, body, and health, which are based on an intentional negligence of duty by music2me, or an intentional or reckless
negligence of duty by a legal representative or vicarious agent of music2me, as well as any other damages, which are due to gross negligence of duty by music2me, or to an intentional or gross negligence of duty by a legal representative or vicarious agent.
12) Liability for links
music2me expressly dissociates itself from all contents on linked pages or images and does not adopt ownership. Any violation of the current law, terms and conditions of music2me (see § 6), or of good morals, which are detected by music2me, result in the immediate deletion of links, entries, graphics, or the like.
13) Legal validity of terms and conditions
In the case that a regulation of these terms and conditions becomes ineffective, the validity of the other regulations is not affected. The participant will be informed about updated versions of terms and conditions via email. The participant has the right to object to the new version within six weeks. In the case of an objection, the changes of the updated version are treated as not accepted. These terms and conditions are valid with effect from 01.12.2011 until further notice.
14) Place of jurisdiction / applicable law
The place of jurisdiction is Aschaffenburg, if the participant has no general place of jurisdiction in Germany.
The legal relationship between the participant and music2me shall be governed exclusively by German law.
