We would like to point out that we take data protection very seriously and process or store all data with the utmost care. Nevertheless, every internet user must realize that absolute security, to safeguard all data completely against access by third parties, can never be guaranteed. Quite often, the behavior of the user is responsible for offering security vulnerabilities. For example transmission of data via regular e-mail can offer security vulnerabilities and cannot be safeguarded by us. We cannot assume any liability for damages arising as a result of such security vulnerabilities.

Using Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (following: Google). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", ie text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on these websites, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. According to Google the IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
The purposes of data processing are the evaluation of the use of the website and the compilation of reports on activities on the website.

Using Script Libraries (Google Webfonts)
In order to present our content in a correct and graphically appealing way, we use script libraries and font libraries on this website. For example, Google Webfonts. Google web fonts are transferred to the cache of your browser to prevent multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Web fonts or prohibits access, content will be displayed in a standard font.
The call of script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible - but currently also unclear whether and for what purposes - that operators of such libraries collect data.
Embedded YouTube videos
We embed Youtube videos on some of our websites. The corresponding plug-ins are operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plug-in, it will connect to Youtube's servers. Youtube will be informed which pages you visit. If you are logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. This can be prevented by logging out of your Youtube account beforehand.
Anyone who has disabled the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program will not have to expect such cookies even when watching YouTube videos. Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.

Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an advertisement sent by Google, Google Adwords will set a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on a Google-served ad. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not expired, we and Google may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can not be tracked through AdWords advertisers' websites. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.
Our website uses an affiliate program to reward the people who promote us or even just tell their firends about us. The technology behind this reward program is more or less the same as the Google Conversion Tracking technology which is explained in the previous section above.
If you do not want to participate in the tracking, you can refuse the required setting of a cookie - for example, via a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or sets your browser so that cookies from the domain "googleleadservices.com" will be blocked.
Please note that you are not allowed to delete opt-out cookies as long as you do not want to record measurement data. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.

This website uses Google Inc.'s remarketing feature. It's designed to present interest-based ads to web site visitors within the Google Network. A so-called "cookie" is stored in the browser of the website visitor, which makes it possible to recognize the visitor when he or she visits websites that belong to the advertising network of Google. On these pages, visitors can be presented with ads that relate to content that the visitor previously viewed on websites that use Google's remarketing feature.

The contract is then concluded as soon as the order confirmation has been received by the customer, at the latest this is done with provision of the service.
The customer shall take reasonable precautions in the event that the program does not function properly, in whole or in part (e.g. through data backup, documentation of software use, fault diagnosis, regular review of results, contingency planning). It is his responsibility to ensure the functionality of the program's work environment.
ABC may terminate the rights under § 6 for an important reason under the conditions of § 8. An important reason is, if ABC is considering the circumstances of the individual case and weighing the mutual interests of the permanent whereabouts of the software at the customer is unreasonable, especially if the customer violates § 6 or § 15 in a significant manner.
Der Vertrag kommt dann zustande, sobald die Auftragsbestätigung dem Kunden zugegangen ist, spätestens erfolgt dies mit Bereitstellung der Leistung.
Der Besteller trifft angemessene Vorkehrungen für den Fall, dass das Programm ganz oder teilweise nicht ordnungsgemäß arbeitet (z. B. durch Datensicherung, Dokumentation der Softwarenutzung, Störungsdiagnose, regelmäßige Prüfung der Ergebnisse, Notfallplanung). Es liegt in seiner Verantwortung, die Funktionsfähigkeit der Arbeitsumgebung des Programms sicherzustellen.
ABC kann die Rechte nach § 6 aus wichtigem Grund unter den Voraussetzungen des § 8 beenden. Ein wichtiger Grund liegt vor, wenn ABC unter Berücksichtigung aller Umstände des Einzelfalls und unter Abwägung der beiderseitigen Interessen der dauerhafte Verbleib der Software beim Besteller nicht zuzumuten ist, insbesondere wenn der Besteller in erheblicher Weise gegen § 6 oder § 15 verstößt.
Right of withdrawal for consumers (consumer is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes which can predominantly be attributed neither to his commercial nor his self-employed professional activity).
You have the right to revoke this contract within fourteen days without giving reasons. The revocation period shall be fourteen days from the date of conclusion of the contract.
In order to exercise your right of withdrawal, you must inform us:
ABC-Usability UG (haftungsbeschränkt)
Phone:>click to see phone number<
E-mail:>click to see e-mail<
of your decision to withdraw from this contract by means of a clear declaration (e.g. a letter sent by post or an e-mail). You can use the attached sample revocation form, which is not mandatory.
In order to comply with the revocation period, it is sufficient for you to send the notification of exercising the right of revocation before the expiry of the revocation period.
If you revoke this purchase, we shall reimburse you immediately and no later than fourteen days from the date on which we received notice of your revocation of this purchase for all payments we have received from you, including delivery charges (other than additional charges arising from your choice of a method of delivery other than the cheapest standard delivery offered by us). Such refund will be made using the same means of payment that you used in the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise with you in writing and in no event will you be charged for such refund.
If you have requested that the Services commence during the withdrawal period*, you shall pay us a reasonable amount equal to the proportion of the Services already provided up to the time you notify us about the withdrawal for this purchase in relation to the total amount of Services provided in this purchase.
* You automatically demand the start of the service within the revocation period as soon as you use the dictation software within the revocation period and use the purchased credit for this purpose. If you have already possessed another credit before this purchase and your new credit has not been used until the revocation, then the service for this credit has not yet begun. In any case, the right of withdrawal expires as soon as the credit has been used up.
Note: If you have both prepaid credits and credits from a subscription, the system will use the subscription credit as a priority, since this expires at the end of the interval (when the month or year has expired). However, apart from the statutory limitation periods, there are no other expiry rules for prepaid credit. For technical reasons, it is not possible to prioritize the use of credit balances differently.
The right of withdrawal expires in the case of a contract for the provision of services if the service provider has completely provided the service or has only begun with the execution of the service after the consumer has given his express consent and at the same time confirmed his knowledge that he loses his right of withdrawal in the case of complete performance of the contract by the service provider.

Wenn Sie diesen Vertrag widerrufen, haben wir Ihnen alle Zahlungen, die wir von Ihnen erhalten haben, einschließlich der Lieferkosten (mit Ausnahme der zusätzlichen Kosten, die sich daraus ergeben, dass Sie eine andere Art der Lieferung als die von uns angebotene, günstigste Standardlieferung gewählt haben), unverzüglich und spätestens binnen vierzehn Tagen ab dem Tag zurückzuzahlen, an dem die Mitteilung über Ihren Widerruf dieses Vertrags bei uns eingegangen ist. Für diese Rückzahlung verwenden wir dasselbe Zahlungsmittel, das Sie bei der ursprünglichen Transaktion eingesetzt haben, es sei denn, mit Ihnen wurde schriftlich ausdrücklich etwas anderes vereinbart; in keinem Fall werden Ihnen wegen dieser Rückzahlung Entgelte berechnet.
Haben Sie verlangt, dass die Dienstleistungen während der Widerrufsfrist beginnen soll*, so haben Sie uns einen angemessenen Betrag zu zahlen, der dem Anteil der bis zu dem Zeitpunkt, zu dem Sie uns von der Ausübung des Widerrufsrechts hinsichtlich dieses Vertrags unterrichten, bereits erbrachten Dienstleistungen im Vergleich zum Gesamtumfang der im Vertrag vorgesehenen Dienstleistungen entspricht.

Aus technischen Gründen ist eine andere Priorisierung zum Verbrauch der Guthaben nicht möglich.
Das Widerrufsrecht erlischt bei einem Vertrag zur Erbringung von Dienstleistungen, wenn der Unternehmer die Dienstleistung vollständig erbracht hat oder mit der Ausführung der Dienstleistung erst begonnen hat, nachdem der Verbraucher dazu seine ausdrückliche Zustimmung gegeben hat und gleichzeitig seine Kenntnis davon bestätigt hat, dass er sein Widerrufsrecht bei vollständiger Vertragserfüllung durch den Unternehmer verliert.
