AGREEMENT TO TERMS
The information and services provided by the APP or the Site are not intended for distribution to or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to applicable laws or regulations or which would subject us to any registration or license requirement within such jurisdiction or country. Accordingly, those persons who choose to access the APP and Site from other locations than Switzerland do so on their own initiative and are solely responsible for compliance with local laws and regulations, if and to the extent local laws or regulations are applicable.
The APP and Site are intended for users who have reached legal age, which is usually 18 years old but can vary depending on the country where you reside. Persons under the legal age are not permitted to use or register for the APP or the Site.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
Provided that you are eligible to use the APP and Site, you are granted a limited license to access and use the APP and Site and to download or print a copy of any portion of the Content to which you have properly gained access for your personal, non-commercial use. Any commercial use of our APP or Site is prohibited. We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you in and to the APP and Site, the Content, and the Marks.
Our APP and our Site provide you with a professional tool for assessing tasks (including knowledge, skills, and attitudes) you have performed based on the EPA (“Entrustable Professional Activities”) framework. You acknowledge and are aware that we neither participate in nor supervise any of the assessments made with our APP or our Site. The assessments are solely made between a trainee and its supervisor, without any involvement of us, and accordingly, we cannot accept any liability for the content or accuracy of the assessments made, and you expressly acknowledge and agree that we will and cannot amend the assessments once they have been concluded in the APP or the Site. If you are of the view that any of the assessments reflected in the APP or Site are unfair, incorrect, or misleading, you need to raise immediately with your supervisor during the assessment process. If you wish to challenge any of the assessments made, you need to follow the escalation path provided by the organization you work with (if there is any at all). precisionED is neither responsible nor accepts any liability for the assessments made based on our APP or Site or any consequences arising out of the assessments made or omitted to be made, as the case may be.
The assessments made by way of using our APP or Site are accessible by the trainees only unless the trainee elects to share them with anyone. By using our APP or Site you do not gain any IP rights (and namely no copyright) in the assessments made or concluded.
If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not (or no longer) current, or incomplete, we have the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the APP or Site (or any portion thereof).
You are required to register for a personal account when using the APP or Site. You agree to keep your password confidential and that you will be held responsible for all use of your account and password, irrespective of if you or any other person using your account acted. We reserve the right to remove, reclaim, or change a username you select if we determine, in our sole discretion, that such username is inappropriate, obscene, or otherwise objectionable.
FEES AND PAYMENT OF FEES
PREPARED BASIC VERSION - FOR FREE
PREPARED ADVANCE AND PRO VERSIONS
You may wish to upgrade from the preparedEPA-basic version to either the preparedEPA-advanced or preparedEPA-pro version. Our preparedEPA-advanced version is designed for trainees’ use and the preparedEPA-pro version for supervisors. Our upgrade versions provide enhanced applications tailored to the needs of trainees or supervisors respectively.
If you elect to do so, you will need to buy a license for the respective upgrade version (the “Upgrade License”). The Upgrade License is valid for 12 consecutive months and starts on the day you download the upgrade version and ends on the last calendar day of the 12th full month after your download (the “Upgrade License Period”). The Upgrade License is renewed automatically for another Upgrade License Period of 12 full consecutive months unless you unsubscribe from the upgrade version by 11.59 pm (MET, i.e., UTC +1h) of the last day of the respective Upgrade License Period.
Please check our website www.prepared.app for the current prices for the Upgrade License. We reserve the right to alter the prices for Upgrade License at any time and without notifying you (for technical and organizational reasons, this is unfortunately not viable), but you only will be charged the altered prices upon renewal of the Upgrade License, i.e., for a next Upgrade License Period. To avoid any negative surprises, please make sure to check the price for the Upgrade License on our website before a new Upgrade License Period starts.
You can explore the current capabilities of the preparedEPA-advanced version and the preparedEPA-pro version on our website www.prepared.app. We strive to continuously improve all preparedEPA versions, including the basic version. By upgrading to preparedEPA-advanced or preparedEPA-pro and effecting the respective download, you confirm that you have familiarized yourself with the actual capabilities and features of the upgrade version and agree to pay the price for the Upgrade License Period.
Users who unsubscribe from the Upgrade License can continue to use the preparedEPA-basic version. By downgrading to the preparedEPA-basic version all data which is related to the upgrade version will no longer be available. However, we keep the respective data in line with the paragraph “Cancellation” below.
When upgrading to an upgrade version you will be charged the respective subscription price (the “Upgrade License Fee”); the Upgrade License Fee is an in-app purchase and accordingly, the Upgrade License Fee is debited from the credit card which is linked to your app store account. By downloading an upgrade version, you agree to this billing method and allow us to debit your credit card. All payments shall be in Swiss Francs (CHF). It is your responsibility to make sure that your credit card details and instructions are current and that a sufficient limit is available for us to charge the Upgrade License Fee. Should we not be able to successfully charge the Upgrade License Fee when a renewal of the Upgrade License is due, we reserve the right to set you back to the preparedEPA-basic version without any prior notice. We will charge your account when you download the upgrade version for the first time, and on the first day of the new Upgrade License Period in case the Upgrade License is renewed for another Upgrade License Period.
30 DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEES
If you purchase an Upgrade License for a preparedEPA-advanced or a preparedEPA-pro version and are unsatisfied, you’re entitled to a full refund within 30 days of the download of the preparedEPA-advanced or a preparedEPA-pro version. Upon cancellation of your preparedEPA-advanced or preparedEPA-pro version, your account with us will remain life, but you will be reverted to the basic version. Any information or consent provided for under the preparedEPA-advanced or a preparedEPA-pro version (e.g., regarding Cookies set) will remain valid also for your basic version. In case of a cancellation within 30 days of the download of the preparedEPA-advanced or a preparedEPA-pro version, the fees we charged will be refunded in full (but excluding any taxes added on top and already paid by us, unless we can claim back taxes already paid).
You can cancel your subscription to our APP or Site at any time by logging into your account or contacting us using the contact information provided below. In case you cancel a subscription to the preparedEPA-basic version, the cancellation will be effective once we have affected it. Should you cancel a subscription to the preparedEPA-advance or -pro version, your cancellation will take effect at the end of the current Upgrade License Period. All assessment data and personal information related to either the preparedEPA-basic or the preparedEPA-advance or -pro versions, as applicable, will be safely stored for 2 years after the end of the subscription in case you want to reactivate your account. After 2 years of inactivity of your respective account, your account with all its related data will be deleted permanently.

Mail: precisionED AG, Mühlebachstr. 2, CH-8832 Wollerau SZ, Switzerland
Last updated 1 October 2021
These General Terms and Conditions ("GTC") govern the basis of the business relationship between the customer (“Customer”) and precisionED AG, Mühlebachstrasse 2, CH-8832 Wollerau, Switzerland ("precisionED") with regard to the use of the preparedEPA Assessment System ("preparedEPA") by the Customer and its Users, unless otherwise agreed in writing. "Users" are the individuals who use preparedEPA for pre- and postgraduate training.
The GTC at hand are a translation into English from the German original GTC. In case of any discrepancy between the English translation and the German original, the German original shall prevail.
precisionED sends the Customer an offer for the use of preparedEPA by email. The offer is considered accepted as soon as the Customer confirms the acceptance of the offer online by clicking the "accept" button. The Customer ensures and confirms that only persons authorized to act on its behalf will click the "accept" button.
With acceptance of the offer a contract regarding the use of preparedEPA is deemed concluded: precisionED grants the Customer the right to use preparedEPA in the version and for the agreed period of use specified in the offer. In return, the Customer agrees to pay precisionED the usage fees according to the offer.
Granting of rights of use to preparedEPA and all copyrights, trademarks, patents and other (property-) rights in relation to preparedEPA are the exclusive property of precisionED. Customers are not allowed to grant sub-use rights or licenses.
The period of use begins on the date specified in the offer and runs for the following 12 full calendar months ("Period of Use"). If neither party terminates the contract as per the end of the respective Period of Use, the contract shall automatically extend for a further 12-month period.
Both Customers and precisionED may terminate the contract in writing with a notice period of 3 months by the end of the Period of Use.
The current scope of services of preparedEPA is described on the website www.prepared.app. Customers confirm that they are aware of the current scope of services. precisionED reserves the right to change the scope of services at any time and without prior notice. Changes in the scope of services are intended for the continuous improvement of preparedEPA. Should a change in service represent a deterioration from the Customer's point of view, Customer can terminate the contract prematurely according to section 2 paragraph 3.
precisionED provides Users from time to time with temporary new features for testing purposes. These features will later be used in paid versions of preparedEPA. Such feature changes will be marked as temporary. Customers have no right of termination when such features are disabled.
Customers acknowledge and agree that preparedEPA is a software application that can be accessed on the most common internet browsers. Accordingly, precisionED cannot guarantee that preparedEPA will be available at any time and during the entire Period of Use without restrictions or interruptions. precisionED only commits to provide preparedEPA on a "best effort" basis. The same applies with regard to the app version of preparedEPA.
The usage fees according to the offer are to be paid annually in advance.
precisionED reserves the right to adjust the usage fees unilaterally by means of appropriate notification to the Customers. A fee increase is only binding for a new Period of Use.
Customers who do not agree with a fee increase are free to file an objection in writing with precisionED within 30 days of the notification of the fee increase, whereby the contractual relationship ends at the end of the current Period of Use. Otherwise, the fee increase is considered accepted.
precisionED does not guarantee that the use of preparedEPA by Customers or their Users complies with applicable law (especially labor law) or any standard regulations. Clarifications in this regard and the adaptation of employment contracts, work processes, internal regulations, rules, documentation etc. are exclusively the responsibility of Customers.
precisionED does not guarantee that preparedEPA will effectively bring the intended benefits to Customers and Users (no guarantee of success).
In particular, precisionED does not guarantee and does not give any warranty or assurance that the professional competences displayed in a User's profile are accurate or represent the real level of competence of a User. precisionED only provides an assessment system. PrecisionED has no control over the correct use of the system. The assessment of User`s competences, the monitoring and accurate deployment of Users is in the sole responsibility of the Customer or the responsible employer (e.g., a hospital or clinic). Each employer is solely responsible for ensuring that its personnel are appropriately supervised and deployed according to their competences and experience.
precisionED assumes - as far as legally permissible - no liability for any direct or indirect damages or other disadvantages of Customers, Users or third parties caused directly or indirectly by the use of preparedEPA by Customers or their Users.
preparedEPA is deliberately programmed from the User's point of view. Only Users have access to their own data and especially to their personal competence profile. Users decide with whom and for how long they share their personal competence profile. The Customers take note of this and agree to it.
If Users shall be obliged to disclose their data (in particular their personal competence profile), it is solely the responsibility of Customers to carry out the corresponding legal clarifications and adaptations of contracts etc. With the exception of aggregated or pseudonymized data for research or statistical purposes, precisionED will not provide Customers access to User data.
