Terms of Service

to use the services of SlideLizard

Updated October 2019

Scope and definition

The following terms and conditions apply to all services offered by Opportunity IT OG under the brand name SlideLizard (hereinafter referred to as SlideLizard) and regulate their use.

By registering or downloading, the user explicitly accepts these terms and conditions.

SlideLizard is a service that provides presenters with extended functionality for Microsoft PowerPoint (short PowerPoint) presentations to facilitate communication and data exchange between the presenter and the participant. This service is provided to the presenter as a direct PowerPoint integration (as a so-called PowerPoint AddIn).

A SlideLizard presentation is a PowerPoint presentation that has been prepared by the SlideLizard AddIn to be held. Metadata about this presentation has been transferred to the SlideLizard service.

Users of the service are presenters and participants.

Participants are people who participate in a SlideLizard presentation via a mobile (smartphone, tablet, laptop) or any other Internet-enabled device. To participate means to connect to the presentation by calling a URL generated by the SlideLizard service. This input can be done manually or indirectly via another representation of this URL, e.g. a QR code. Whether someone is a participant does not depend in any way on the location of the person, so the person can be completely separate from the presenter, only the URL must be communicated to the participant.

Presenters are the people who create and deliver a SlideLizard presentation. Presenters make their presentation slides, contact details and hyperlinks available to participants via the SlideLizard service.


Participants do not have to register to use the services of SlideLizard on the participant side.

In order to be able to use the services as a presenter, registration is required, stating a password and a valid e-mail address, or using an existing Facebook or Google account. When creating billing data for a user, the surname, first name and full address must be provided. The registration is done by a final confirmation mail to be able to use SlideLizard. The registration itself is free of charge.

The user undertakes to provide the registration details truthfully and correctly and to report any changes to the data without delay by e-mail to office@slidelizard.at.

The password and the access data must not be passed on to third parties and must be kept safe from access by third parties. If the user has reason to suspect that a third party has knowledge of his password/access data, he must report this immediately by e-mail to office@slidelizard.at and change his password immediately.

There is no right to registration. SlideLizard is entitled to refuse a registration without giving reasons.

Each user may create a maximum of 1 account. Multiple registrations are inadmissible.

A registration creates a contractual relationship between Opportunity IT OG and the user, which is governed by the provisions of these terms and conditions and the separate data protection declaration.
