When you use the SEON Service after a modification is posted or you are notified of any modification, you are accepting the modifications to these Terms.

We use the Google Firebase developer platform and related features and services provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”).
Google Firebase is a platform for developers of applications (“Apps”) for mobile devices and websites. Google Firebase offers a variety of features, which are described on the following overview page: https://firebase.google.com/products/.
These features include, but are not limited to, the storage of Apps, including personal information about the users of the Apps, such as content created by them or information regarding their interaction with the Apps. Google Firebase also offers interfaces that allow interaction between users of the App and other services, e.g. authentication via short message service.
The evaluation of user interactions and the performance of the App is carried out with the help of the analysis services “Crashlytics” and “Google Analytics”. Google Firebase is designed to record how users interact with an App. This involves recording events such as opening the App for the first time, uninstalling, updating, crashing or the frequency of use of the App. The events can also be used to record other user interests, e.g. for certain functions of the applications or certain topics. In this way, user profiles can also be created.
Google Firebase and the users’ personal data processed by Google Firebase may also be used together with other Google services.
We use Google Firebase for authentication, app distribution, cloud messaging, analysis, optimization, security and economic operation of our application. This is also our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

All notices required or permitted to be given under these Terms will be in writing and will be deemed given: (i) upon actual delivery, if made by personal service; (ii) three (3) days after mailing, if made by U.S. certified or registered mail; (iii) one (1) business day after delivery to the courier or overnight delivery service, if made by courier or overnight delivery service, and (iv) when received by electronic communication if you elect to receive notice from SEON by electronic communication.
