Terms and Conditions
1.1 The Buchholz Wengst GbR (SimpleSoft) has developed an Audience Response System (eduVote) for use in lectures, seminars and lessons. This system consists of software solutions for initializing a survey and collecting results from an extensive variety of mobile devices, running diverse operating systems. SimpleSoft offers a yearly-based license for the use of the system.
1.2 The system has been carefully designed and tested. However, no guarantee for the functioning of the system can be assured under all circumstances. The system was not extensively secured against tampering or other malicious manipulations and therefore must not be used where the result of the survey can cause financial damage or personal injury.
1.3 The Buchholz Wengst GbR consists of its partners, Martin Buchholz and Dr. Johannes Wengst.
