We, Tracto, develop and operate an interactive platform and mobile applications (apps) for persons with ADHD and comorbid conditions. Tracto is a digital health company and wants to offer individuals with ADHD comprehensive care in order to minimize the barriers and problems of daily therapy. Our products and services are solutions that aim to simplify your daily ADHD management.
1.1.2 Our Products provide information and content that has been assembled with the greatest of care and to the very best of our knowledge from internal and external sources. We nevertheless wish to emphasize that our Products and services are only to be used to provide you with information and to build awareness but they cannot replace consultation with and diagnosis by a healthcare professional. Under no circumstances does Tracto issue medical therapy recommendations or medical advice of any kind. For questions on the illness and therapy, we recommend contacting a healthcare professional. The data provided must only be analyzed by you and your healthcare professional. No content – no matter whether provided by Tracto itself, our cooperation partners, or users – can be understood as supplementing or replacing information from a healthcare professional or pharmacist.
1.1.3 Tracto offers a range of Products (apps) and services as well as combinations of these (bundles) for managing your ADHD. For the sake of simplicity, all current and future apps, services, and bundles (including new versions, updates, and other improvements) that Tracto provides in any way, are subsequently referred to jointly as “Products” or individually as a “Product”. Each person who acquires and uses one or more of our Products is referred to jointly as “Users” or individually as “User”. If these T&Cs refer to natural persons using the male form, they apply equally to all people.
1.1.4 In connection with these T&Cs, the following term definitions apply to individual Products:
Tracto is an independent mobile application (app) for your smartphone or tablet that documents your daily life with ADHD. Our basic/free version of the Tracto app has restricted functions.
Tracto Premium is the name of the unrestricted full version of the Tracto app. Tracto Premium is subject to a charge and offers numerous additional functions to control your ADHD in an even better way.
1.1.5 Our user manuals (accessible via our apps or via our website) and the relevant special provisions (see section 8) emphasize any peculiarities for the individual Products.
1.2 Scope of our T&Cs
1.2.1 We exclusively offer all of our Products on the basis of the current version of these General Terms and Conditions (T&Cs), this applies globally with the exception of the USA and Canada. Tracto explicitly opposes contradictory business or other usage terms.
1.2.2 Please note that before using our Products for the first time you must consent to all of the declarations and agreements referred to and accept them during any further usage. The registration and use of our Products is prohibited without your consent to our T&Cs.
1.2.3 We explicitly reserve the right to make future changes and factually justified modifications to our T&Cs. Changes may be necessary to meet statutory requirements, correspond to technical and economic requirements, or meet the interests of our Users. Such changes are possible at any time and will be published in an appropriate manner before they take effect, giving each User the opportunity to oppose them in writing within a month of their publication. If they are not opposed, the ongoing use of our Products is subject to the relevant new T&Cs.
1.3 Third-party suppliers
1.3.1 It goes without saying that you will find our Products in the app stores. In general, the business terms of the relevant third-party supplier (over which we have no influence) apply there; these are not part of our T&Cs nor our contractual relationship with you as the User of our Products. This also applies to the business terms and conditions of your mobile device or service supplier.
1.3.2 We work with various partners to ensure the optimal use of our Products. These include cooperation partners that supply us or our Users directly with certain Products as well as insurance companies who may pay the cost of our Products for you. In these cases, we explicitly emphasize the applicable business terms of a third-party supplier or you must accept such business terms anyway before you can acquire one of our Products via a third-party supplier.
2. Data protection
We are aware of the major responsibility that comes with your use of our Products. Not only do you provide us with general personal data but also with data on your health. In our Privacy Notice we inform you about the use and protection of your data in connection with using our Products and of your consent required for this.
WITHOUT YOUR PRIVACY CONSENT FOR THE NECESSARY DATA PROCESSING, USE OF THE PRODUCTS IS NOT POSSIBLE IN LEGAL OR ACTUAL TERMS.
Our Privacy Notice is not part of these T&Cs but rather is only used to provide you with information under the GDPR on the basis of which you issue your consent for the necessary data processing.
3. Concluding the contract and registration
3.1 Purchase of and payment for our products
3.1.1 Our products can be purchased by various means:
App stores (such as Apple App Store/iTunes or GooglePlay) offer our products. Please note that to purchase (not: use) our products, the separate business terms of the app store apply and these may require a user account.
Voucher codes for our products are in constant circulation and can be redeemed on our website.
Insurance companies (public and private) work with Tracto to support persons with ADHD with our products. Costs of our products are paid by the insurance company either directly or reimbursed under your insurance tariff. You can find out from us whether your insurance company already cooperates with us.
3.1.2 You can purchase our chargeable Products on our website, via app stores or within our apps. They are paid for via the app store’s user account using the stipulated payment options. The relevant app store acts either as an agent and payment service provider for Tracto or as a direct seller. If you experience problems with downloading or payment, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org any time.
3.1.3 Usage fees or purchase prices (including statutory value-added tax) must be paid – depending on the offer and selection – once or repeatedly (e.g. on a monthly, 6-monthly, or annual basis). The current fees are displayed in our app, website or the app stores and are due for payment in advance. If payment is not processed directly via the app store, we can send you invoices and payment reminders by email. In the event of culpable, late, or incomplete payment, we are entitled to block your access to our Products. Your usage fee payment obligation remains unaffected by this.
3.1.4 We explicitly reserve the right to restrict free Products at any time, stop them completely, or charge a fee for them. No legal right for the future can be derived from the free use of individual Products or parts thereof for a particular period.
3.1.5 Tracto can also make special and free offers that are subject to additional conditions or restrictions. In this regard we explicitly refer to any variances from these T&Cs while otherwise the full content of these T&Cs remain applicable. Special or free offers cannot be transferred to other Users.
3.2 Registration and activation
3.2.1 The use of our Products requires your registration with Tracto in our apps. As soon as you have activated our Product for the first time, you must register using an email address and password (Tracto ID). Each User may only create one Tracto ID and each Tracto ID can only be used by one User.
3.2.2 By registering, the User agrees to his binding offer to conclude a contract with Tracto for the use of our Products on the basis of the applicable version of these T&Cs. We explicitly accept such offers, at the latest by activating your Tracto ID.
3.2.3 The activation is confirmed to you directly after registration by a separate email. We reserve the right to reject individual Users or their offer to conclude a contract without stating a reason. In such a case any payments already made will be reimbursed and User data provided deleted immediately.
3.2.4 Upon registration, the User confirms that he is at least sixteen years old and that applicable law permits him to conclude contracts. Only people with legal capacity are permitted to register. Minors are only permitted with the explicit agreement of a parent/guardian. With the registration, the parent/guardian declares they are entitled to submit legally binding declarations in the name of the minor.
3.2.5 On registration, the User confirms their acknowledgement and unrestricted acceptance of the contents of these T&Cs and that their information is true, correct, up-to-date, and complete; they are also obliged to regularly update their personal information. We reserve the right to contact Users at any time to verify registration data and usage information.
3.2.6 If the User provides false, incorrect, out-of-date, or incomplete information or we have just cause for believing that information is false, incorrect, out-of-date, or incomplete, Tracto is entitled to block the relevant Tracto ID with immediate effect without prior notice and prohibit the use of our Products without being obliged to repay the User for the costs incurred.
3.2.7 The User must protect their registration data from unauthorised access by third parties, abuse, or use with fraudulent intent. If there is even a suspicion that the Tracto ID has been exposed to such a risk, this must be notified without delay to email@example.com. We have the right to block the Tracto ID of any User if it is used for wrongful or fraudulent intentions.
4. Right of withdrawal and revocation
4.1 Information on exercising revocation right
4.1.1 If you do not use our Products either for commercial or for professional purposes, as a consumer you are entitled to revoke the contract concluded with Tracto under the following conditions:
You have the right to revoke this contract within fourteen days without stating a reason.
The revocation period is fourteen days from the date the contract was concluded (digital content activation).
To exercise your revocation right, you must inform us of your decision to revoke the contract using a clear declaration to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can use the enclosed sample revocation form but this is not required.
To maintain the revocation period, it is sufficient for you to send the notification of exercising the revocation right before the end of the revocation period.
Consequences of revocation
If you revoke this contract, we must repay all payments that we have received from you, including any delivery costs (if applicable), without delay and at the latest within fourteen days of the date when the notification of your revocation of this contract was received by us. We use the same payment method for this repayment as you used for the original transaction unless we have explicitly agreed something different; under no circumstances are charges incurred due to this repayment.
Please note that if your health insurance has reimbursed you for the costs of revoked goods or services under the tariff, then your insurance company may have a corresponding claim for compensation.
If you have requested that the services should start within the revocation period, you must pay us the appropriate amount that applies for the services provided up until the date when you inform us of the execution of the revocation right for this contract, compared to the scope of the total services envisaged under this contract.
4.2 Exemptions from the right of withdrawal
4.2.1 You have no withdrawal right for contracts for the delivery of digital content not stored on physical media if we – with your explicit consent, connected with your knowledge of the loss of the withdrawal right (revocation right) in advance starting with the contract fulfillment and after provision of a copy or confirmation under Section 7 Para. 3 FAGG – started delivery before the end of the otherwise existing withdrawal period.
Under Section 7 Para. 3 FAGG the User is provided with confirmation of the contract concluded on a durable medium (e.g. email) within an appropriate period after concluding the contract, at the latest however before starting the service provision, with the information stated in Section 4 Para. 1 FAGG if this information has not already been provided on a durable medium. The contractual confirmation must always contain a confirmation of the agreement to immediately provide the service and acknowledgement by the User of the consequential loss of the withdrawal right (revocation right).
4.2.2 Furthermore, you have no withdrawal right for contracts for goods that were delivered sealed and are not suitable for return due to health protection or hygiene reasons if the seal has been removed after delivery. It is not technically or economically possible to check later whether the ordered goods were used after receipt, have come into contact with bodily fluids, have been (partially) combined with contaminated elements of the goods, or have been stored properly – therefore the reuse or resale of such goods is strictly prohibited for us and/or the relevant manufacturer. Therefore the withdrawal right is excluded due to the controlled hygiene and storage requirements.

Tracto does not claim any ownership of created content and will not assume any supervisory function with regard to content created by Users.
