At the beginning of every section we have summarised what is being regulated in that paragraph. This summary is there for the purpose of clarity, and does not contain any legally relevant content.
Note on restriction of use
If the user wants to use HUMANOO on a mobile device with eTherapists GmbH mobile software (hereinafter also called the “HUMANOO app”) please note that the HUMANOO app is not yet compatible with all mobile device operating systems. Currently eTherapists GmbH offers the HUMANOO app for Android from version 5.0 and for iOS from version 11 on. If these operating systems are not in use on the user’s mobile device, the HUMANOO app cannot be used at this time. However, HUMANOO services are available through mobile phone or computer browsers.
Available and tested browsers include Microsoft Edge (only available through Windows), Chrome, Firefox and Safari (only MacOS), in their current versions. For security reasons, HUMANOO is only supported on the latest browser versions. An internet connection is a prerequisite for using HUMANOO services.
Note on costs of data transmission
Costs may incur when data from HUMANOO services and the HUMANOO app is transferred using internet providers from the user’s computer or mobile device to eTherapists GmbH servers. These costs will be charged by the internet provider. Users can contact their internet provider to ascertain the exact costs of data sharing.
In this section we define who can use HUMANOO services and the HUMANOO app, who we are, how you can contact us and to whom different terms may apply.
1.1 HUMANOO services and the HUMANOO app can only be used by people whose use of these services does not count as part of their professional activity, be it commercial or freelance (consumers). If the user is not of age or has to be represented by a third party, the use of HUMANOO services and the HUMANOO app is only permissible if prior approval (consent) from the person authorised to represent has been obtained.
1.2 HUMANOO services and the HUMANOO app can only be used by private persons. Other use can only take place with express, written agreement.
1.3 The provider of HUMANOO services and the HUMANOO app is
HRB 174399 B (Amtsgericht Charlottenburg), Umsatzsteuer-ID: 304876459,
Managing director: Philip Pogoretschnik.
eTherapists GmbH is the user’s contractual partner and can be contacted for questions about these terms, HUMANOO services or the HUMANOO app.
1.4 These terms apply to all of HUMANOO services that can be used over www.humanoo.com and app.humanoo.com and in the HUMANOO app.
1.5 eTherapists GmbH is neither the operator of the mobile devices or of the platforms the apps are offered and sold on (app stores). These terms therefore do not apply to the relationship between the user and the operator of these app stores or the operator of the mobile device. The respective operator’s terms and conditions should be consulted by the user.
2 HUMANOO’s services
In this section we explain what HUMANOO services cover and what services we offer.
2.1 HUMANOO services include many functions with which the user can determine their own physical and mental health state and improve their performance. The aim of the HUMANOO service is to sensitise users to health topics and to give them an incentive to actively look after their own health.
2.2 The user is offered the digital content of the HUMANOO services as “Software as a Service” over the HUMANOO app or the HUMANOO website. Digital content includes videos demonstrating exercises, recipes with images and cooking instructions or other written and visual recommendations. “Software as a Service” is a model in which the customer can use the provider’s software and necessary IT structure of the provider of the “Software as a Service”, but the software itself is not transferred to the customer.
2.3 Any food, fitness machines and other items used by eTherapists GmbH in HUMANOO’s coaching or recommendations do not form part of HUMANOO services and need to be purchased separately.
2.4 HUMANOO services include functions such as ” release tension”, “training”, “challenges” and “nutrition”.
The ‘release tension’ allows the user to select areas of the body, and to receive recommendations and tips. The user will then be offered exercises (demonstrated in video form), which will help these areas of the body, and overall wellbeing. A range of yoga coaching is also available.
In the ‘training’ section, the user receives a selection of programmes to pursue individually definable health goals (e.g. “movement”, “mindfulness” and “nutrition”).
The ‘challenges’ function offers the user the opportunity to set personal targets with their own headings (e.g. steps per day). In this context, the user may transfer data via Google Fit, the Apple Health Kit or other tracking devices. If you use the services of a cooperating third party provider for tracking, (e.g. Thryve Health, Google Fit and Apple Health Kit), your personal data relating to registration and use will be exchanged. Further information can be received upon first use.
In the ‘nutrition’ part you get recipes as well as the opportunity to receive personalised recipe suggestions.
2.5 In some instances, HUMANOO offers users a bonus programme. Bonus programme points are displayed as virtual diamonds. These diamonds can be used in a shop or paid to users in cash. Users can only use the diamonds in the ways that are detailed in HUMANOO. Any further claims from the bonus programme are void.
2.6 As part of HUMANOO’s preventive healthcare scheme, the prevention control centre (Zentrale Prüfstelle für Prävention) gives users the option to complete certified online courses which are subject to a fee that is reimbursed by the user’s health insurance company. We need a separate consent and authorisation from the user to process the reimbursement and to bill these courses to their health insurance company. Find more information here: https://support.humanoo.com/de/support/solutions/articles/76000032868-humanoo-pr%C3%A4ventionsf%C3%B6rderung
Processing the reimbursement with the health insurance company may incur costs for the user which can be offset against the resulting reimbursement by the health insurance company. As soon as the authorisation and documents required by the insurance are submitted, HUMANOO will pay the reimbursement from the health insurance company minus the costs as a non-refundable advance payment in the form of diamonds in the bonus programme. The general conditions for HUMANOO’s preventive healthcare scheme can be found here: https://support.humanoo.com/de/support/solutions/articles/76000021278-rahmenbedingungen-humanoo-pr%C3%A4ventionsf%C3%B6rderung.
2.7 HUMANOO services are subject to a charge, and can be used directly after the acquisition of a HUMANOO ID. Depending on the term selected, a HUMANOO ID is valid either through:
Purchase by companies, insurance companies or health insurance funds (hereinafter also referred to as “contractual partners”):
Unless otherwise contractually agreed three (3) months / six (6) months or one (1) year with an automatic contractual extension.
Personal purchase by the user:
One (1) Month / six (6) months or one (1) year.
2.8 For contractual partners, like companies (employers) or insurers / health insurers, who offer HUMANOO services to their employees/ insured persons, eTherapists GmbH also offers anonymous evaluations of the health status of their employees / insured persons. The evaluation uses the activation codes that the company (employer or insurer or health insurer) purchased through eTherapists GmbH. The evaluation does not include any users who are not employees / insured by the respective company or insurer / health insurer and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about the employed or insured person(s).
2.9 The HUMANOO app is available for download free of charge on several app stores. The HUMANOO app is a software that facilitates accessing HUMANOO services on a mobile device and that improves the appearance of HUMANOO services on mobile devices. However, the HUMANOO app is not a prerequisite for the use of HUMANOO services.
3 Health notice
Please read the following points very carefully as they are very important for your health. Here you will find out what you should do before and during use of HUMANOO services with regard to your health.
3.1 HUMANOO services do not constitute a medical consultation or examination and do not replace a doctor’s visit. The aim of HUMANOO is to make employees more aware of their health and to motivate them to lead a more balanced lifestyle.
3.2 eTherapists GmbH strongly advises users with pre-existing conditions or those who are pregnant to consult their doctor before using HUMANOO.
3.3 If the user experiences any health problems during the use of a HUMANOO service, or if the user should feel a sudden pain when performing the exercises in HUMANOO, they should stop using HUMANOO and consult a doctor immediately.
3.4 To allow for individualised coaching for users, HUMANOO services include how to optimally carry out the ‘movement’, ‘mindfulness’, ‘nutrition’ and ‘activity’ health tests. The classification of the current status in the corresponding areas is carried out by our health experts.
3.5 Any allergies and food intolerances should be discussed with a doctor before using HUMANOO services, especially when choosing ingredients for HUMANOO recipes.
3.6 Medical treatments are not part of the services offered by HUMANOO. In particular, HUMANOO services do not constitute medical or psychotherapeutic advice or treatment, and cannot be used in their place. In the event of impairment to your (mental) health requiring medical or psychotherapeutic treatment, our services are not a replacement for treatment and offer only a potentially useful addition to medical treatment; please discuss the issue in advance with your doctor or therapist and follow their advice before making use of HUMANOO services. Please also note the requirements for use of/registration for services as laid out in clause 4.6 below.
3.7 Important note: if you are experiencing suicidal thoughts or have made a plan to take your own life, HUMANOO services are not suitable for you. If such thoughts arise while using our services, you must consult a doctor or psychotherapist immediately, or urgently contact the telephone helpline (telephone number: 0800 111 0 111), the German depression help center (www.deutsche-depressionshilfe.de), or one of Germany’s emergency services such as the police (110).
4 Registration and conclusion of contract
In this section we explain how you register for HUMANOO and when your contract with us and these terms come into effect.
4.1 In order to use HUMANOO you need to register and create an account. A user is allowed only one account, and said account cannot be made accessible to third parties. A user account is also not transferrable.
4.2 The user can register over the HUMANOO app (iOS and Android) or over the web app. The user can create a username and password of their choice during the anonymous registration process. The user also has to answer three security questions to reset their password, in the event that they lose or forget their login data.
4.3 The user should not register with their actual name, but with a pseudonym. This is important to maintain HUMANOO’s high level of data protection.
4.4 The user is required to familiarise themselves with and accept these terms during registration. As soon as the user has accepted these terms then these become part of the relationship between the user and eTherapists GmbH, and upon completing registration the contract between the user and eTherapists GmbH, concerning the use of the HUMANOO services, is closed.
4.5 Users can also register with their login data from Facebook, Google or their own email address.
4.6 Being in general good health is a basic requirement for the use of HUMANOO services. Users with pre-existing medical conditions, either physical or mental, should consult with their doctor or therapist before making use of HUMANOO services. HUMANOO cannot, under any circumstances, be considered a replacement for psychotherapy and is not suitable for the treatment of previously diagnosed disorders. If you are currently in therapy, you should consult with your doctor or therapist before using HUMANOO. Your doctor or therapist is able to make an assessment, based on your specific case, as to whether or not it makes sense for you use HUMANOO services.
5 Purchase of activation codes
You need a HUMANOO ID to access HUMANOO services. This section explains how an activation code works and how you can purchase one.
5.1 The activation code unlocks the HUMANOO categories that you need to pay for. The activation code can be purchased personally by the user, or by the employer for employees. The different terms are listed under clause 2.7. The duration starts from the moment the user receives the HUMANOO services. The activation code allows the user to use the categories that you need to pay for within the chosen term. When the ID is no longer valid, the user can purchase a new HUMANOO ID. If the contractual term ends with a company or an insurance company/health insurer and the contract is not extended, the validity of the HUMANOO ID for employees of a company or members of the insurance company also ends.
5.2 If the user cancels the contract with eTherapists GmbH before the activation code runs out then the user receives only a partial refund of the costs if the reason for cancellation was a violation of obligations on the side of eTherapists GmbH and if the activation code was purchased by the user and not by their employer or insurer-health insurer (5.3.2).
5.3 There are three ways to purchase an activation code, either the employer, insurer or health insurer offers it to their employees, or the user purchases one himself.
5.3.1 Purchase through the user
The user can purchase an HUMANOO ID through the HUMANOO website. The fees for the purchase as well as the duration are expressly marked in the offers. The user first needs to take note of and accept these terms as well as the additional information on supply restrictions and payment methods and the note on their cancellation right in order to receive his activation code. The user then has to finalise his purchase by entering his payment details and clicking on the “order” button. The user then receives an order confirmation sent to the email address entered in his order.
5.3.2 Purchase through the user’s employer
eTherapists GmbH gives companies the opportunity to purchase a large number of HUMANOO IDs and give them to their employees free of charge. This is designed to improve corporate health management and the companies (employers) can receive an anonymous report on the health of their employees. It is also possible for the employer to receive HUMANOO membership from a health insurance company or an insurer. In this case, the company also receives anonymous reporting.
User that are employees of participating companies receive an activation code directly from their employers, or in some cases they are distributed by an employee of eTherapists GmbH. The user does not have to order or pay anything in this case. This is done by the employer, insurer or health insurer. The user receives the HUMANOO ID free of charge from their employer.
Should the user want to use HUMANOO’s services or the services of eTherapists GmbH outside of those supplied to them by their employer then the same rules apply as for the purchase through the user (clause 5.3.1).
5.3.3. Purchase through the user’s insurer/health insurer
eTherapists GmbH offers insurer/health insurers the opportunity to purchase a large quantity of HUMANOO IDs, and distribute these to insured members. This is intended to sensitise the insured to health issues. The insurance company has the option of receiving anonymous reporting on member health.
Users who are insured with such an insurance company/health insurance will receive the HUMANOO ID directly from the insurer/health insurance company. They may also be supplied with one from an employee of eTherapists GmbH. Ordering and payment by the user is not necessary. This is the responsibility of the respective insurer/health insurance company. The user then receives the HUMANOO ID free of charge from the insurer/health insurance company.
5.4 eTherapists GmbH offers the opportunity to purchase a HUMANOO box, which includes a HUMANOO ID card, which contains the activation code for the HUMANOO subject to a charge services, as well as information material. The same conditions apply to purchasing the HUMANOO box as purchasing the activation code. If the user themselves purchases it (clause 5.3.1), however, they will also need to give a delivery address and delivery method.
6 Right of cancellation
This section includes important details on your right of cancellation in the case of HUMANOO services that need to be paid for.
6.1 If the user has purchased an activation code or a HUMANOO box then they have a right of cancellation.
6.2 The following cancellation policy is designed for the purchase of the activation code without the HUMANOO box.
If the user has purchased a HUMANOO box then there is a different withdrawal period for the right of cancellation that the user must inform himself of when ordering and receiving the HUMANOO box.
Right of cancellation
You have the right to cancel this contract, without reason, within fourteen days.
This withdrawal period is fourteen days from the date of the conclusion of the contract.

12.2 The user has the right to terminate the contract with eTherapists GmbH in written, form addressed to eTherapists GmbH. However, reimbursement of the fees for the HUMANOO ID will only take place if the reason for the termination is a breach of duty by eTherapists GmbH towards its user and the HUMANOO ID was acquired by the user and not by a contractual partner (see clause 5.3.2, 5.3.3). The written termination letter or email should contain the user’s HUMANOO ID.

13 Other regulations
This section includes more regulations that are important for the contract between you and us.
13.1 Changes to these terms by eTherapists GmbH have to be announced to the user before they come into effect. The announcement has to be at least three (3) weeks before the planned change in the form of a clear notification in the HUMANOO app and website. If the user does not expressly agree to the changed terms then eTherapists GmbH has the right to terminate the contract with the user. Any costs arising from the options that need to be paid for will be partially refunded. The latter does not apply if the user received his activation code through his employer, as described in clause 5.3.2.
13.2 If the user does not object to changes that are merely editorial amendments or rectifying loopholes in these terms within two (2) weeks after the announcement of the changes in HUMANOO and keeps using HUMANOO, then such changes are considered as accepted by the user. eTherapists GmbH will inform the user of his right to object in the respective announcements.
13.3 Changes to these terms need to be delivered in written form. This also applies to changes to this clause 13.3.
13.4 The applicable law and place of jurisdiction of these terms are in accordance with the legal requirements. UN sales law (CISG) is not applicable.

13.6 According to current law, we are obliged to inform the user as a consumer as defined by § 13 BGB (German Civil Code) of the existence of the European online dispute resolution platform (also known as OS platform), which can be used to settle disputes without having to involve a court of law. The European Commission is responsible for setting up the OS platform. The OS platform can be accessed here: https://ec.europa.eu/odr. eTherapists GmbH points out that it is neither willing nor obliged to participate in dispute settlement proceedings before a consumer arbitration board.
13.7 The language of these regulations and the contract between the user and eTherapists GmbH is German. If these regulations are translated into other languages, the German version remains authoritative in the case of appeals.
13.8 These regulations annul any previous agreements on HUMANOO or the HUMANOO app between the employer and eTherapists GmbH. If there are special conditions for certain HUMANOO products or any other products of eTherapists GmbH then these special conditions override these regulations.
13.9 Should individual regulations of these terms become void, this does not affect the validity of the rest of the terms. The void regulation will be replaced by a regulation that is in accordance with the legal terms. The same goes for potential loopholes in these terms.
14 Downloading and saving these terms
This final section tells you where you can find these terms.
eTherapists GmbH will make these terms available permanently for the user in HUMANOO and on the website under https://www.humanoo.com/en/terms-and-conditions/ (contract text record). However, eTherapists GmbH recommends that the user save and keep a version of these terms on their own database.
15 HUMANOO’S Preventative Health Care Scheme (Available in Germany only)
HUMANOO is a platform for digital corporate health promotion, and, as such, is committed to improving the physical and mental health of employees and insured persons. In addition to general health management, HUMANOO is also committed to medical prevention and promoting health. In Germany, under Section 20 SGB V (German Social Code), statutory health insurance funds are required to provide financial support for primary prevention and the promotion of health.
HUMANOO is certain that, in addition to promoting health, prevention is one of the most important foundations for a healthy, economically efficient society. HUMANOO has therefore developed a method for promoting primary prevention measures designed to counteract any reluctance the insured persons might have.
The HUMANOO Preventative Health Care Scheme takes two approaches:
- Supporting insured persons as they apply for reimbursement for primary preventative measures through certified digital HUMANOO courses.
- Providing incentives and motivation for primary preventative measures with a bonus program, including support and advance payment by HUMANOO, as part of the health insurance reimbursement process.
The HUMANOO Preventative Health Care Scheme works as follows:
- The insured person registers for a prevention course offered by HUMANOO and certified in accordance with Section 20 SGB V.
- The insured person grants HUMANOO authorization to deal with everything required to receive reimbursement, including processing the payment from the health insurance company.
- HUMANOO fulfills all health insurance requirements: they make the necessary applications, forward confirmation that the insured person participated in the course, issue a receipt for the course, and process the payment.
- Once the authorization and other documents required by the insurance company have been submitted, HUMANOO pays the insured person a non-repayable advance, equivalent to the amount that HUMANOO expects the insurance company to pay.
- To encourage participants to stay motivated, HUMANOO provides a point-based bonus system. The insured person can accumulate valuable points by means of successful participation, by helping with valuable data capture, by approving use of their anonymized data, and by rating courses. The points can then be reinvested in their health or they can even be paid out.
The HUMANOO Preventative Health Care Scheme enables the insured person to take preventative measures to improve their health, without bureaucratic effort and with the addition of bonus incentives. HUMANOO believes this represents a valuable contribution to the implementation of legally required and supported preventative measures, and therefore also offers a valuable contribution to the health of the insured person.

The certified courses that make up the bonus program are based on prevention promotion schemes offered by statutory health insurance companies in accordance with Section 20 SGB V and are intended to reward you for activities promoting health. HUMANOO provides additional support for these activities with the Humanoo Preventative Health Care Scheme.
In order to hand over the task of claiming reimbursement from the health insurance company, you must grant HUMANOO legal authorization to handle everything required to receive the reimbursement, including processing the payment. HUMANOO fulfills all health insurance requirements: they make the necessary applications, forward confirmation that you have participated in the course, issue a receipt for the course, and process the payment.
Once the authorization and other documents required by the insurance company have been submitted, HUMANOO pays you, as a non-repayable advance, the amount they expect the insurance company to pay. The costs for processing the payment are deducted and the payment will be credited to your account in the form of 500 virtual diamonds. These diamonds can be used in the shop or you can request that they be paid out in cash.
