Thank you for using Bessa App.

Bessa App is operated by meisterwork GmbH, a cooperation based in Austria. These Terms of Service (the “Terms”) and our Privacy Policy govern your use of all available Bessa App Services and Apps (“Bessa App”), so please read them carefully before using Bessa App.

By using Bessa App, you agree to be bound by these Terms.

In that case, “you” and “your” will refer to that organization.
We may revise the Terms from time to time. Changes may be posted to our blog and within our Apps, so please check that regularly. The most current version will always be posted on our Terms page. By continuing to use Bessa App after revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms. If you do not agree to the new Terms, please stop using Bessa App.
