By using our website or by creating and using an account with NALA, you are accepting these GTC, which – together with our privacy policy – will form the basis of the agreement between you and NALA. Do not create an account or browse our website if you do not agree to the GTC.

TERMS THAT APPLY ONLY TO APP USERS

 

1. Age Requirement

The prerequisite for creating an account with NALA is that you must be at least 18 years of age. 

 

2. Account Creation

The prerequisite for obtaining the services offered by NALA, including the non-binding and free trial subscription, is registration on the basis of a user profile, for which registration is required. To register as a user on the NALA App, you will need to create an account by providing the following details:

  • Email address
  • Password

Alternatively, you can use your Facebook, Google or Apple login ID to create your account.  If you choose to do this, Facebook, Google or Apple (as applicable) will become aware that you have created an account with us.

You must have agreed to these Terms, including the Privacy Policy, before you create an account with us. You must provide accurate registration information to us and notify us, by updating your account, if your information changes.

3. Account Suspension and Deletion

You can delete your account at any time. To delete your account, please send us an email to [email protected] and we’ll remove your data.

If we discover that you have breached these GTC in any way, we may suspend your account immediately by notice to you, and without incurring any kind of liability to you.  As soon as you receive the notice, you must contact us to discuss whether the breach can be remedied. If we do not hear from you within 30 days of your account being suspended, or if the breach is not, in our reasonable opinion, capable of being remedied, we will delete your account.

If we delete your account as a result of a breach by you of these GTC, or as a result of a failure by you to renew your subscription, we will not be liable to you for any loss or damage you or any other person suffers as a result of the deletion of your account.

4. Services provided by NALA

The details of the services to be provided by NALA to you are set out in the individual service descriptions for the individual subscriptions and/or services on the NALA App. 

The holistic programme against skin conditions offered by NALA is an online-based, CE-marked Class I medical device in accordance with the Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC.

However, the services offered by NALA do not constitute medical advice or treatment. They are not intended as substitutes for examination or treatment by a doctor or therapist, but can support a course of treatment and/or provide additional evidence for an examination.

5. Prices and Payment 

All prices listed on the website http://www.NALA.care/pricing, in the NALA App and in the individual service descriptions are inclusive of any applicable value added tax.

If you buy a monthly subscription to our services, the subscription fees will be due at the beginning of each calendar month. Subscription fees will be debited via the Apple App Store for Apple users and via Google Play for Android users.  

If you fail to pay the subscription fees when they are due, your NALA account will be automatically suspended.  We will send you a notice that the account is suspended and an invitation to login and pay your subscription fee. If you do not renew your subscription within 7 days we reserve the right to delete your NALA account without any further notice to you.

If NALA incurs costs and/or expenses when a payment is refused, and you are responsible for this (e.g. because the account is not covered or the credit card limit has already been exhausted), NALA is entitled to charge you for the actual amount of the costs and/or expenses incurred.

6. Subscription and Term

The use of the NALA App begins with a free and non-binding trial subscription for a period of 7 days from the creation of the user profile (registration) and consent to the use of the free and non-binding trial subscription. On expiry of the 7 day trial period you will receive a notification asking you whether you would like to continue with a paid subscription. If you do not wish to take a paid subscription you do not have to do anything. Your account will then be inactivated.  Your trial period may be longer than 7 days if you have been offered the NALA App through a partner, e.g. as part of the purchase of another product, usage of another service or via your doctor.

The paid subscription has a basic term of 1 (one) calendar month. It is automatically renewed for the following calendar month until you cancel the subscription. If you do not want the subscription to continue for the following month, you must cancel it at least 7 days before the end of the current month.   The subscription can be cancelled through the App Store (Apple users) or Google Play Store (Android users).

 

7. Messaging System

We use our own secure messaging system to enable communication communication among users and between users and medical experts on the NALA App.  The messaging system encrypts any messages that are sent via the NALA App.  We make every effort to maintain the confidentiality and security of messages sent via the NALA App by using an up to date firewall, encryption and anti-virus technology.  We cannot, however, guarantee absolute security, even with the most up to date technology.  It is your responsibility to consider whether the information that you wish to share can be appropriately shared using the NALA App or whether another method would be more appropriate.  If you choose to send information through another means, NALA cannot be held responsible for any loss or disclosure of that information. NALA  does not have access to messages sent between users of the NALA App.

8. Content restrictions and code of conduct

You must not upload any content to the NALA App that:

  • infringes any person’s Intellectual Property Rights;
