  2. BO-MOBILE operates an interactive online service (hereafter „forgetty“ or „portal“) with the main purpose of coordinating meetings among users.
  3. BO-MOBILE also offer their services under several other top-level domains. The Terms of Usage at hand govern the contractual relationship between the user and BO-MOBILE regardless of the forgetty domain which was used to register or log-in.
§ 1 Scope of Service
  1. BO-MOBILE provides a portal for coordinating meetings with other users. This portal enables users to automatically execute inquiries and reminders for appointments.
  2. To that purpose, one user, the so-called group manager, can set up a group on forgetty and can invite up to 50 participants to join.
  3. First, group managers have to enter the name of the group, their own name, their e-mail address as well as the intended meeting place. Forgetty will then generate an administration link and send it to the group manager's e-mail address. Only after the group manager has confirmed this administration link, will he be able to administer the group.
  4. After confirming the administration link, the group manager can enter the names and e-mail addresses of potential members and determine other group details  (required minimum  number of participants and reminders). Forgetty then sends out an mail to the selected participants. It contains a confirmation link with which the participants receiving the e-mail can join the group.
  5. If the selected users do not respond, they will not receive any more messages from forgetty. However, if they click on the activation link, they join the group and forgetty will keep them updated on a regular basis about news within the group.

  7. Moreover, users are provided with a feature that can determine whether a required minimum number of participants, which has to be entered by the group manager, has been reached. If that minimum number has not been reached by a point in time established by the group manager, forgetty generates a message to all participants canceling the event.
  8. Forgetty is continuously being enhanced and adapted, so that existing features may be removed and new features may be added at any time, as the case may be. This does not entitle users to derive any rights.
