All the information provided on chatarmin.com.at are the intellectual property of chatarmin.com GmbH and by no means a guarantee to be rightfully proven. Our goal is to do our best providing you the best software licenses that we are able to offer. If you happen to find "wrong" information or tips that might lead you to lose money there is no way chatarmin.com GmbH i. G. is liable for that.

10. Payment policy

All chatarmin.com prices will be declared and charged in the currency chatarmin.com decides. All chatarmin.com prices are total prices including all fees.

However, chatarmin.com does reserve the right to charge additional fees based upon fees by payment service provider you may use. As an example, chatarmin.com does reserve the right to charge an additional 6% fee for payments via PayPal, covering PayPal fees chatarmin.com has no control of.

Taxes will be added thereafter. Such tax is based on the bill-to address and the national tax rate in effect at the time of your purchase. In practice, 20% VAT is added for services fulfilled in Austria. Other countries are subject to a general reverse charge mechanism, where the recipient of our service is to declare taxes. Foreign currency exchange rates are due to the bank of the account you purchase a chatarmin.com product from. We reserve the right to refuse to make contract with you and deny payment. It is your responsibility to pay in a timely manner and that your payment method is valid. By you having access to one of our accepted payment methods we expect you to be of full awareness of buying a product online.

All sales are final. Prices may change over time and the services do not include any price protection or refunds in the event of a price reduction or promotional offering. Refunds will not take place after 14 days unless you can provide specific reasons for cancelling your subscription, which we'll evaluate from cause to cause and have the right to make the final decision. However, after our successful acceptance of your use of one of our offered payment methods, we will deliver the purchased product in timely manner. If a product becomes unavailable following a transaction but prior to download, your sole remedy is a refund.

If any technical problems occur or unreasonable delay in delivery of over seven days after purchase of the product, your exclusive and sole choice is a refund of the price paid. For detailed information see the clause 12 of our terms of service, product delivery. Payment plans described as "monthly", "3months" or "annually" are auto-renewing and need to be proactively cancelled or unsubscribed by the user.

11. Subscription Termination

As you are a business client, it is only possible to terminate contract, after successful business transaction, at the end of each respective billing cycle, with a 3 months prior written notice.

The contractual relationship can be terminated at any time during a current billing period, upon a 3 months written information notice. In that case, the service or software will be delivered until the end of the current contract full stop, upon a 3 months prior cancellation notification in written manner.

An example of a monthly contract:

If the customer has concluded a "monthly subscription" which remains valid until the 17th of the month and is therefore automatically renewed on the 17th of the month, the customer can terminate the contract until the 16th of the month. The subscription will therefore end three months later, on the 17th of the third following month. If the customer wishes to terminate the contract upon an earlier date of termination, it is subject to a mutual separate agreement between the customer and Chatarmin.

An example of an annual contract:

If the customer has taken out an annual subscription until 23 December 2025 on 23 December 2024, he can cancel until 22 September 2025 with a cut-off date of 23 December 2025. If the client fails to provide prior written notice of contract termination until 22 September, contract will automatically be renewed for another respective timespan, in this case, another year.

Chatarmin holds the right to withdraw from any contract and aliquotally refund the client for any outstanding service or remaining contract length. Chatarmin has no need to inform the client about the reason of contract termination.

12. Product delivery

We promise to grant you access to your purchased product within seven days unless you' re taking place in a presale or other terms are explicitly stated in the specific campaign. Most of our products will be delivered instantly after successful payment.

chatarmin.com GmbH has the right to refuse to make contract with you for any reasons. Payment will then be neglected or refunded. If for whatever reason WhatsApp itself becomes unusable or WhatsApp's service is down and you can provide proof of it, you are eligible for a aliquotal refund for the current billing cycle you are in.

Our products will be delivered and open for your access until termination of chatarmin.com GmbH. Start of each respective billing cycle is the start of money received.

13. General

We may adjust our terms of service as well as our privacy policy from time to time. The changes will not be retroactive and the most current version of the terms will govern our relationship with you. We'll try to notify you of any changes via the communication channels you enabled us to have contact with you.

By continued usage of our service after such adjustments might take place, you agree to be bound by the updated terms as well as our privacy policy. Also the adjustment of prices for our services might be subject of changes. Temporarily by discounts or permanently by us changing the pricing of our products in general.

This includes the measures set out in these terms, which are updated from time to time to take account of technological developments, for example, and are expressly incorporated into these Business Terms. chatarmin.com will notify you immediately if WhatsApp or chatarmin.com becomes aware of a personal information breach. Taking into account the type of processing and the information available to WhatsApp, chatarmin.com will support you as far as possible in your role as the controller with appropriate technical and organizational measures, your obligations under the data protection law applicable to you as the controller to respond to requests from data subjects to exercise their rights of data subjects.

To the extent required by the data protection law applicable to you as a controller, the processor agrees to support your obligations as a controller, in particular those relating to security of processing or in relation to personal information breaches, by providing you, taking into account the nature of the processing and the information available to chatarmin.com provides appropriate support. Upon your request, chatarmin.com will provide you with any information and assistance reasonably necessary to demonstrate WhatsApp's compliance with its obligations as a processor under these Data Processing Terms.

Given the global nature of the chatarmin.com' Service, chatarmin.com or WhatsApp may subcontract its processing obligations under these Business Terms or the WhatsApp Data Processing Terms to a sub-processor that may be located in a country other than the country in which you are located, chatarmin.com is located or WhatsApp is located, including the European Economic Area or the United States. This can only be done by means of a written agreement which must impose obligations on the sub-processor that are no less stringent than the obligations imposed on chatarmin.com' Business Terms or WhatsApp by their Data Processing Terms. chatarmin.com and WhatsApp remain fully liable to you for the performance of that sub-processor's obligations. If WhatsApp Ireland is your contracting entity, the WhatsApp Business Data Transfers Addendum applies, which is incorporated by reference into these Data Processing Terms. You hereby authorize chatarmin.com and WhatsApp to engage other meta-companies and third parties as its sub-processor(s). Subject to applicable data protection laws, chatarmin.com and WhatsApp will notify you in advance of any changes related to its sub-processor(s). If you reasonably object to such changes, you may notify chatarmin.com and/or WhatsApp in writing and discontinue your use of our Business Services; and after termination of the Business Terms, chatarmin.com and WhatsApp will stop processing the Personal Information and delete it within the period set forth in the Business Terms, unless applicable law requires continued retention or WhatsApp has a right or obligation to use the Personal Information independently of the Business Terms.

16. Use of client name, logo, data, results and content for statistical, marketing and pr purposes

We reserve the right to use your name, logo, account data, account results, account statistics, account setup and account insights and content for statistical, sales-, marketing- and pr- purposes. Thus, any right to use a client's reference for marketing purposes is reserved, and needs prior withdrawal expressed through written notice by client in advance of consuming our services by purchasing chatarmin.com WhatsApp or other multi-messenger services.

17. End of service

If Chatarmin decides to withdraw from offering any services to its clients, remaining services or contractual agreements and obligations will

  • either be outsourced to a tech-partner providing comparable servies of the same quality, fulfilling any service agreed upon written contract
  • not be provided and aliquotally refunded for the remaining services or contractual timespan
  • be provided upon contract termination, without any further obligation or possibility to extend, refresh or re-contract the agreed service

18. Guarantees of revenues or business-value provided

Despite the Chatarmin team providing calculations and hypothetical value projections in the form of a “WhatsApp Financial Planning” or “WhatsApp Business Case” during Support or Sales procedures and communication, those projections are by no means binding and cannot be held or used against Chatarmin at any point.

19. Separate Agreements

Each and any contract between Chatarmin and a customer is subject to Chatarmin’s order processing agreement (German: “AVV = Auftragsverarbeitungsvereinbarung”) and technical organizational measurements (German: “TOM = Technisch-organisatorische Maßnahmen) that are to be requested specifically and will be provided by the Chatarmin team on demand to any customer or soon-to-be-customer.
