Welcome to Trusted Accounts!
By using the trustedaccounts.org website and making use of a Trusted Account (the “Account”) and all its related features, you agree to be bound by the following terms of service (the “Terms”). These Terms cover all present and future features provided by your Account. The Services are operated by Trusted Accounts (“We”, the “Company”).
If you agree to these Terms on behalf of a company or another legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity, its affiliates, and all users who access the Services through your Account to these Terms. In the absence of such an authority, you are not authorized to use the Services.
Personal data of our users, such as email addresses and phone numbers, is stored by us in the form of a hash. The hash makes it possible for us to check phone numbers and email addresses for uniqueness without having to store personal data in its original form.
The Services are provided exclusively to persons. Accounts registered by “bots” or automated methods are not authorized and will be terminated.
Each user is solely responsible for all actions performed through the Services.
You agree not to use the Services for any illegal or prohibited activities. You also agree not to disrupt the Company’s networks and servers in your use of the Services.
Having multiple accounts is not considered an acceptable use of our service (e.g. bulk signups, a large number of free accounts created by a single organization or individual). Abusive registrations of aliases for third-party services is also not acceptable. Free accounts must also only be created and maintained by their effective users (e.g. it is not acceptable to create accounts in anyone else’s name and later transfer credentials to that third party).
Any Account found to be committing the above-mentioned activities will be immediately suspended.
Trading or selling an account to a third party is prohibited and the company reserves the right to suspend infringing accounts. The Company has no obligation to store or forward the contents of terminated accounts. We also have no obligation to store messages or contents for accounts.
Although it is not current practice, the Company reserves the right to suspend or delete free Accounts that have been inactive for a consecutive period of a year or more.
The Company does not make any warranty about the reliability of the Services or guarantee the security of user data, despite best efforts. The Service is provided “as is” and you agree not to hold the Company responsible nor to seek indemnification for any damages that may arise as a result of the loss of use, data, or profits connected to the performance of the Service or failure in such performance.
Furthermore, you will not hold the Company liable or seek indemnification if confidential material is unintentionally released as the result of a security failure or vulnerability in the performance of the Services.
Due to the encrypted nature of the Services, you acknowledge that the Company has no ability or obligation to recover your data if you misplace your decryption password.
The Company aims to provide Service availability of 99.95% or better. If downtime in any month exceeds 0.05% of that month, the Company will credit the user’s Account. Service credits are applied at the user’s request and will apply toward the balance due at the end of the next billing cycle (either monthly or yearly).
The Company calculates service credits in the following way:
Some performance issues are excluded from downtime calculations, such as:
You agree that the Company, and any parents, subsidiaries, officers, employees, or third-party contractors cannot be held responsible for any third-party claim, demand, or damages, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising out of your use of the Services.
If, in the provision of the Services, the Company processes, on the user’s behalf (where the user acts as a Data Controller), any personal data that is subject to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the company’s data processing agreement shall apply.
Within the limits of applicable law, the Company reserves the right to review and change these Terms at any time. As long as you are using the Services, you are responsible for regularly reviewing these Terms. Continued use of the Services after such changes are performed shall constitute your consent to them.
These Terms shall be governed in all respects by the substantive laws of Austria. Any controversy, claim, or dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the competent courts of the state Vorarlberg. In case of discrepancy between the English version of these Terms and any translated version, the English version shall prevail.
