We offer the App and its content without commitment and ‘as is.’ Nextfour is responsible for the lawfulness and compliance with good practice of any editorial and other content it creates, including the related copyright and other intellectual property rights. Nextfour does not control or moderate the content of the App, and it is not responsible for these; rather, each user is personally responsible for their use and is obliged to use the App according to the terms of use.

Nextfour does not guarantee or assume responsibility for the validity, reliability or completeness of the App or the content or service used through it. Nextfour is not responsible for any deficiency in the App or the content used through it and is not liable for any damage resulting from this.

Rights to the App and its content

All the intellectual property rights of the App and its content and software belong to Nextfour.

You undertake to immediately notify Nextfour if you suspect or detect any misuse of your username.

Applicable law and place of jurisdiction

These terms of use are governed by Finnish law. In the event of a dispute that cannot be settled through negotiations, the dispute will be settled in the first instance by the Southwest Finland District Court.

Customers who act as consumers may also bring disputes before the district court of their place of residence or the Consumer Disputes Board for settlement.

Termination and severability

You may terminate the terms of use of the App by deleting the App or discontinuing its use. Any downloads made before the termination will be valid under the terms of the agreement existing at the time of the download. If any provision of these terms of use is found to be illegal or void, all the other provisions of the terms will remain in force.

Legal information

The privacy policy of Nextfour, which complies with and specifies the requirements of the existing Data Protection Act, is provided as an appendix to these terms of use. In the event of a conflict between this policy and the existing data protection legislation, the existing legislation will take precedence.

Nextfour may make changes to the privacy policy at any time. If so, we will notify you of the changes and ask you to read the latest version of this policy and confirm your acceptance of it. You can also check the privacy policy periodically for any changes that may occur.
