  1. The services provided by Move-In are not done with German authorities. The information and tips that are displayed while entering your data are general explanations. These refer to normal Wohnung Anmeldung or Kindergeld cases, they are not tailored towards individual or case-related circumstances. Furthermore, our services do not include any substantive examination of the data you enter. Any questions or any ambiguities related to the customers individual data must be clarified with the German Authorities (Your city “Bürgerburo” for the Anmeldung or your regional “FamilienKasse”)
  2. Move-In makes every effort to ensure that our services are available to our customers around the clock; however, we cannot guarantee that our services are available at all times. We can guarantee that our server is available 99% of the time on an annual average. This does not include announced maintenance work and times when our server is unavailable due to technical errors or other issues that are beyond Move-In’s control (such as force majeure or a third-party fault). Access to our services may be limited temporarily if the security of the network operation or the maintenance of the network integrity is endangered. We reserve the right to temporarily suspend our services for maintenance which would be announced on our website 24 hours in advance. This does not apply in cases of shutdowns for urgent and necessary reasons or shutdowns for updates, patches, or modifications. Other software that we use may result in short-term interruptions in service operations due to the necessary server restart.
