The presentation of the offers of the cooperation partners also does not constitute a binding offer. Each cooperation partner acts on its own responsibility and the provider assumes no liability for the offer and product range of the cooperation partners.

2.7 Choosy UG (haftungsbeschränkt) expressly does not offer medical advice or treatment, nutritional advice or other medical services with the app. Advice and treatment is the exclusive responsibility of trained specialists, such as doctors or nutritionists.

Should one or more provisions of these GTC be or become invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining clauses.
