(henceforth ‘Modimido’, ‘we’, or ‘us’), Angermünder Straße 21, 12305
if they have been expressly confirmed in writing by us.
- Modimido uses German as a contract language.
Note: this English
translation of our terms and conditions is provided for convenience.
In the case of discrepancy between this English version and the German version, the
German version is legally decisive.

Through skilloverse.com, Modimido offers a platform for business users
and freelancers to create professional relationships with one another.
The service is limited to establishing or enabling contact between
- Freelancers and business can, as users of our service, create
accounts with profiles. With a paid account or a trial account, users
may use the Skilloverse service and may connect with other users.

and other information. It is possible to create a pseudonymised
profile. With a paid account or trial account, business users may
search for freelancers for their projects. Freelancers with a paid
account or trial account are shown in the candidate lists of the
projects. Business users can invite freelancers to chat and
freelancers can accept or reject these chat invitations. When a
freelancer accepts a chat invitation, a chat between the business user
and the freelancer is opened and, where it applies, the profiles of
both users are de-pseudonymised in the chat.
- As soon as contact between users takes place, skilloverse.com
assumes that the users responsibly agree whether, and on what terms, a
contract between them is concluded. Creating, managing and negotiating
contracts is not part of the service offered by skilloverse.com.
- Modimido reserves the right to expand the range of, modify, reduce
or discontinue the services offered by Skilloverse as long as users
are not unreasonably impaired by these changes.

activities related to maintenance or security. Modimido assumes no
liability for issues beyond its control.
- The Skilloverse service can be accessed via a web browser with
most common web browsers, which are freely available on a variety of
devices. However, as these technologies are constantly changing, we
cannot guarantee that they will work in all cases.

software in active development that, despite our efforts, may have
technical problems and performance problems. If you need a stable
experience, please use a more established platform.
If you encounter a technical problem with our software, please let us
know responsibly and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!

content they upload.
- Violating these conditions can result in a user account being
temporarily deactivated or a user account being removed.
Conclusion of the contract
- The contract for the paid service between skilloverse.com and users
enters into force once users have registered and selected and
confirmed the period for which their profile is to be visible in the
candidate lists or for access to the candidate lists for projects, as
the case may be. Access to paid services is activated upon receipt of
the amount due.
- At the end of the period for which the user has paid, the profile
becomes inactive. For freelancers, this means that their profile is no
longer displayed as candidate for projects. For business users, this
means they are no longer be able to view candidates for their
