1.1. The following Conditions of Use govern the business relationship between the user and Teufelberger Seil Gesellschaft m.b.H. (hereafter abbreviated as “Teufelberger”) in connection with use of the “Ablegereife” app (hereafter abbreviated as “APP”). Use of the app is permitted only providing the user accepts these Conditions of Use as well as the privacy statement, and confirms that he/she neither is a consumer within the meaning of § 1 KSchG (Austrian Consumer Protection Act) nor will he/she use the APP as a consumer within the meaning of § 1 KSchG (Austrian Consumer Protection Act).

The APP’s calculation is based on the ISO 4309 standard and provides supporting information on the discarding of wire ropes.
