MYCB1 also has the right to immediately suspend or terminate the User’s access to and use of the App, Website or Service in the event of such violation.
MYCB1 reserves the right to modify (including but not limited to adding or removing features), discontinue or terminate the App, Website and/or other Service or any part thereof, for any reason without notice and at any time.

Although MYCB1 undertakes to provide and maintain the App, Websites and other Services with the most reasonable care, the accuracy and completeness of the functionalities and data within the App, Websites and other Services cannot be guaranteed. The App, Websites and other Services are provided ‘AS IS’ and ‘AS AVAILABLE’. To the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, MYCB1 expressly disclaims all warranties, whether express, implied, statutory or otherwise, with respect to the App, Websites and Services, including (but not limited to) all implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement. MYCB1 does not guarantee that the App, Websites or other Service (as applicable) shall at all times function without error or interruption, nor that it will be wholly free from defects, errors and bugs; MYCB1 only guarantees the quality, functionality and availability of the App, Websites and/or other Service if and to the extent explicitly guaranteed by MYCB1 in writing.
To the extent permitted by law, MYCB1 makes no representation or warranty of any kind, express or implied: (i) as to the operation or availability of the App, Websites and/or other Services, or the information, data, content, materials or products included thereon; (ii) that the App, Websites and/or Services will be uninterrupted or error-free; or (iii) as to the accuracy, reliability, or currency of any information or content provided through the App, Websites and/or other Services.

For the avoidance of doubt, downtime caused directly or indirectly by (i) a force majeure event, (ii) failure of the User’s computer systems or networks, (iii) any breach by the User of these Terms, or (iv) any scheduled maintenance in accordance with these Terms or service level agreement (as applicable), shall not be considered a breach of this Agreement.
MYCB1 may at any time (temporarily) suspend or limit the use or availability of the App, Websites or other Services or part thereof, insofar this is necessary to execute maintenance or implement updates, upgrades or new releases of the App, Websites or Services or functionalities in connection therewith. MYCB1 undertakes commercially reasonable efforts to inform the User of such suspensions in advance, if and when possible. A (temporary) suspension or limitation of the App, Websites or other Service shall not create any claim or right to compensation or refund(s) (if applicable) for the User against MYCB1.
7. Intellectual Property
All Intellectual Property in and related to the App, Websites and/or other Services are exclusively vested in MYCB1 or its licensors. The User only acquires those rights of use that are explicitly granted by MYCB1.
All rights of use granted to the Patient in relation to the App, to the Health Care Provider in relation to the Aletta Service, or as agreed otherwise with MYCB1, shall be non-exclusive, non-transferable and non-sublicensable and limited to the terms and conditions as specified by MYCB1.
The User is prohibited from removing or amending any indications or credits of Intellectual Property or confidentiality from the App, Websites, Aletta Service, data files, documentation or materials as disclosed by MYCB1.
All confidential information received by the User or MYCB1 (as applicable) shall be held in confidence and not be disclosed or used except to the extent that such disclosure or use is reasonably necessary to perform any of the Services or obligations under these Terms, or as explicitly permitted under these Terms.
Confidential information within the meaning of this clause shall include information, materials or data (in writing, orally or electronically) relating directly or indirectly to the User, MYCB1, the App, Websites and/or other Service, including without limitation to financials, reports, analyses, studies, methods, methodologies, designs, drawings, Intellectual Property, algorithms, software, codes (including source codes), computer programs, offers, presentations, technical or business information, financial statements, business plans, User information, processes, formulas or specifications, and/or any other information that is marked “confidential”, “secret” or similar designation which indicates the confidential nature thereof.
The confidentiality terms in this clause shall not apply to the disclosure of information, that: i) is or has become publicly available without breach of the confidentiality provisions; ii) has been or later is rightfully developed without use, directly or indirectly of the confidential information, or obtained from independent sources free from any duty of confidentiality; iii) is required by any court of competent jurisdiction or any competent judicial, governmental, supervisory or regulatory body.
Upon termination of the Service, regardless of the reason thereof, any confidential information will be destroyed without withholding any copies thereof, unless statutory provisions (e.g. financial administration) require a longer retention in which event these security and confidentiality measures shall continue to be applicable.
9. Limitation of liability
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the total aggregate liability of MYCB1 due to an attributable failure in providing the App, Website or other Service or due to any other reason whatsoever, explicitly including any guarantees or indemnification obligations, shall be limited to the compensation of direct damages only and not exceeding i) the sum of fees (excl. VAT) received by MYCB1 from the User through use of the App, Website or other Service, or ii) EUR 250, whichever amount is higher. MYCB1’s liability will furthermore under all circumstances be limited to the amount actually paid out by the liability insurance as a result of the claim in question.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall MYCB1 be liable for any special, incidental, indirect, or consequential damages whatsoever (including, but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, loss of data or other information, for business interruption, arising out of or in any way related to the use of or inability to use the App, Website or other Service or otherwise in connection with any provision of this Terms, even if MYCB1 has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Also MYCB1’s liability for the damage, destruction or loss of data, or for the (temporary) unavailability of the App, Website or other Service due to maintenance by MYCB1, is excluded.
The exclusions and restrictions referred to in this clause will not apply if and in so far as the damage or loss are the result of an intentional act or gross recklessness by the management of MYCB1.
MYCB1 is not obliged to meet any obligation pursuant to these Terms if MYCB1 is prevented from doing so as a result of an event that is beyond its control (“force majeure”). MYCB1 shall never be liable for any damages and costs incurred by the User or any third party which are the result of force majeure. An event of ‘force majeure’ will at a minimum include: (i) war, fire, floods, riots and natural disasters, (ii) governmental measures or boycotts, (iii) electricity failure, (iv) faults affecting the internet, computer network, cloud providers or telecommunication facilities, (v) strike actions and (vi) pandemics (e.g. COVID-19 or similar).
Except where performance by MYCB1 is permanently impossible, MYCB1 will only be in default for an attributable failure after it has been given written notice of the default thereby granting MYCB1 with a reasonable term of at least thirty (30) days to remedy the default. The notice of default must contain a comprehensive and detailed description of the breach, in order to ensure that MYCB1 has the opportunity to respond adequately.
A condition for the filing of any claim to damages is always that the User reports the damage to MYCB1 in writing as soon as possible and in any event not later than 10 (ten) days after the damage occurred. Claims for damages against MYCB1 shall in any event lapse by the mere expiry of six (6) months after the damage occurred, unless User has filed its statement of claim for such damages with the applicable court before the last day of that six (6) months period.
10. Governing law and competence
These Terms are governed exclusively by the laws of the Netherlands.
To the extent permitted under applicable law, any disputes that may arise between MYCB1 and the User from or in connection with these Terms, and cannot be settled amicably, shall be exclusively brought before the competent court of Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
