in the following “Proximo-WSD”-
and the customers specified in § 1 para. 2
in the following “Customers”-
Contracts between Proximo-WSD and the customer, which are concluded via the Google Play Store or the Internet site https://www.elena-app.com/, are exclusively subject to the following terms and conditions in their version valid at the time of conclusion of the contract. If the customer uses conflicting or supplementary terms and conditions, their validity is hereby contradicted; they will only become part of the contract if Proximo-WSD has expressly agreed to them.
The Customer is a consumer if the purpose of the ordered deliveries and services cannot be attributed to his commercial or independent professional activity. On the other hand, an entrepreneur is any natural or legal person or partnership with legal capacity, which acts in exercise of its commercial or independent professional activity when concluding the contract.
In relation to entrepreneurs, these General Terms and Conditions shall also apply to future business relations without us having to refer to them again.
Conclusion of the contract
The presentation of the products in the GooglePlay Store and in the online store is not a legally binding offer, but a non-binding online catalog. In the legal sense it is a “request for an offer by the customer”.
Thereupon the registration in the App. This takes place first for an ELENA-App Free edition Account. An e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address provided, asking the user to confirm the registration in the app. This mail also represents the acceptance of the user’s offer. If there is no confirmation within 24 hours, the ELENA-App Free Edition Account will be closed. If the confirmation is made by the customer, the Free edition can be used within a short time.
If the use of the Auto-Respons function or other non-Free edition features are desired, the user will be redirected to the website https://www.elena-app.com/ by clicking on the appropriate link in the app. There the desired function can be activated by clicking the order button for “Pro” or “Pro Plus” edition. To do this, the data provided during the original registration must be completed and a payment method selected.
Afterwards, payment formalities are completed. By sending the completed payment form, the customer submits a binding offer. Acceptance of the offer by Proximo-WSD is effected by a confirmation e-mail.
The contract includes a subscription for the extended app function “Pro” or “Pro Plus” for an indefinite period of time.
The contract is concluded for an indefinite period. It can be terminated by either party with a regular notice period of one month to the end of the month.
There is no charge for the ELENA-App Free edition available in the Google Play Store.
For the ELENA-App Pro and ELENA-App Pro Plus editions, there is a monthly charge as indicated on the website.
All prices are shown in Euro (€) and already include the applicable statutory value added tax.
Payment method and invoice
The following payment methods are possible:
When you place your order, you also provide us with your credit card details. After your legitimation as a legitimate cardholder, we request your credit card company to initiate the payment transaction immediately after the order. The payment transaction will be carried out automatically by the credit card company and your card will be charged.
If you choose the credit card payment method, there are no additional costs.
During the ordering process you will be redirected to the website of the online provider PayPal. In order to pay the invoice amount via PayPal, you must be registered there or first register, legitimize with your access data and confirm the payment instruction to us. After placing the order in the store, we will ask PayPal to initiate the payment transaction. The payment transaction will be executed automatically by PayPal immediately afterwards. You will receive further instructions during the ordering process.
If you choose the payment method PayPal there are no additional costs.
Proximo-WSD reserves the right to limit or expand the selection of payment methods in individual cases.
Due date of payment and default of payment
After completing the registration and choosing a payment method for ELENA-App Pro and ELENA-App Pro Plus, the ELENA-App is functional within a short time.
If the money is not transferred within 24 hours in case of the payment method “invoice” or “direct debit”, the functionality of the ELENA-App will be limited to the ELENA-App Free edition again. The same applies to all editions if the selected payment methods do not work.
After the first registration, the agreed service of the customer is always due after one month.
This procedure also means that there are no reminders or interest on arrears.
Functionality of the APP
This app is only a communication support. It is not intended to provide health or auxiliary medical support or care. It does not fulfill the purpose of danger prevention in the public or private sector.
Through the ELENA-App, an Android tablet and video telephony, your relatives can speak and see the most important caregivers with the touch of a finger.
The photo of the relative or caregiver is simply tapped and the video call is started immediately.
To do this, the app in its ELENA-App Free edition must first be installed on the corresponding device. People who should be able to be called very easily must be stored with the correct number in the contacts. Afterwards they can be set up in the app as being in the start screen of the device.
The extended edition of ELENA-App (ELENA-App Pro Plus) offers an additional “automatic answer” function for authorized callers: If the tablet is called but the call is not answered, ELENA-App can automatically answer the video call, provided the caller is authorized to do so. This also requires that the person in question is first stored in the contacts with the correct number.
Before setting up this feature, customers should be aware that only by making a video call, depending on the orientation of the receiving device, can the unlocked persons have a wide view of the privacy of the called person. The appropriately unlocked person must be informed about the new function in advance. Proximo-WSD assumes no liability for these individual arrangements.
