By clicking the “Sign Up” button or by using the neckar.io website, software or services (“Services”), You are agreeing to comply with and be bound by these Terms on Your behalf and, if applicable, on behalf of Your organization.
If you are using any Services on behalf of an organization or business, you are promising that you have the authority to bind that organization or business. When you use Services on behalf of that organization or company, the term “You” refers to the organization or business.
You may use these services only in compliance with the Terms. Any other use is not authorized. The Services may change over time as we improve our Services. We may stop, suspend, or modify the Services at any time without prior notice to You. We may also remove any content from our Services at our discretion.

YOUR ACCOUNT AND SECURITY
You must register with Neckar to use the Services. When You register, You will be asked to create an account (“Your Account”). You agree to provide Neckar with accurate and complete information when You create Your Account (“Account Information”). You also agree to update Your Account Information promptly should Your information change.
When You create Your Account, You will be asked to choose a username and password or you can choose a social login option instead of creating a new login account specifically for our Services. You will use these credentials to access the Services and any data associated with your Account or that You store with Neckar (“Your Data”).
We want your account to be as safe as possible. You are solely responsible for protecting the privacy and security of your credentials, including not giving your username and password to any third party. You are responsible for any activity using Your account, whether You authorized that activity or not. If You lose Your username or password, You may not be able to access Your Account or any of Your Data.
If Neckar determines that there has been a breach of Your Account security, to protect You and Your Data, Neckar reserves the right to suspend Your Account and require You to use other credentials. Neckar is not liable for any loss or damage arising from any access to, or sharing and use of Your Account. You agree that You will immediately notify Us at email@example.com if Your Account is accessed or used without Your authorization, or if You have reason to believe that Your Account has been compromised.
We store your personal information on our servers which are located in Germany. Germany provides an adequate level of data protection as required by Art 45 (1) GDPR.
