6. User safety and authentication
6.1. To ensure the safety of our application, some services may be used only after successful authentication of the user’s identity.
6.2. As the safety of our users is our number-one priority, it is not possible to address or contact other users of the application or arrange to meet users until a newly opened account has been authenticated.
6.3. User authentication may be carried out in the following ways:
(i) by taking a photograph of an identification paper (ID card, passport, driving licence) that contains the photo, name and date of birth of the user listed in his or her profile directly in the application. To use this option, follow the steps under the Authentication box in the application. We recommend covering other data on your document, especially your personal identification number (or similar), signature, insurance number, place of residence, document number, etc., before taking the photo;
(ii) by inserting a photograph of the completed questionnaire available on our website at www.flaminger.com, officially verified by a body of state administration – if you do not want to share a photo of your document with us, it is possible to authenticate you by filling in a questionnaire containing basic information about you and by having it verified by a body of state administration, which will authenticate your signature on the document.
6.5. All users are solely responsible for their own behaviour, the way they express themselves, and other communication with other users within the application. Please note that we do not actively investigate the history or criminal records of our users, although we do not allow them to use the application. Our company does not guarantee and is not held liable for the conduct of individual users of the application. Please read the Safety Guide before using the application.
6.6. In accordance with Section 1829 of Act No 89/2012, the Civil Code, as amended, consumers have the right to withdraw from the contract within 14 days. However, a consumer cannot withdraw from a contract on the provision of services if they have been provided with his or her prior express consent before the expiry of the time-limit for withdrawal from the contract, and the business, before entering into the contract, informed the consumer that in such a situation the consumer would have no right to withdraw from the contract. Likewise, a consumer is not entitled to withdraw from a contract on the supply of digital content if it is not supplied on a tangible medium and is delivered with the consumer’s prior express consent before the expiry of the time-limit for withdrawal from the contract, and the business, before entering into the contract, informed the consumer that in such a situation the consumer would have no right to withdraw from the contract. By purchasing the application in the digital store, you agree to its delivery before the expiration of the withdrawal period. In view of the above and in the light of the fact that the application comprises digital content, a user has no right to withdraw from the contract if he or she purchases the application or additional services.
