Acceptable Use

You must not use our website in any way that causes, or may cause, damage to the website or impairment of the availability or accessibility of the website; or in any way which is unlawful, illegal, fraudulent or harmful, or in connection with any unlawful, illegal, fraudulent or harmful purpose or activity.
You must not use our website to copy, store, host, transmit, send, use, publish or distribute any material which consists of (or is linked to) any spyware, computer virus, Trojan horse, worm, keystroke logger, rootkit or other malicious computer software.

Access To Notes

You accept all risks of unauthorized access to your own notes and agree that you are solely responsible for maintaining the privacy and secrecy of any passwords or client side encryption keys used to gain access to note contents.
We are not able to decrypt any saved note content and so you agree that upon loss of password or client side encryption key, NoteShred has no responsibility to restore or retrieve unencrypted representations of your data.

Hyperlinks

You are granted a limited, non-exclusive right to create a text hyperlink to the Sites for noncommercial purposes, provided such link does not portray NoteShred or any of its products and services in a false, misleading, derogatory or otherwise defamatory manner and provided further that the linking site does not contain any adult or illegal material or any material that is offensive, harassing or otherwise objectionable. This limited right may be revoked at any time. You may not use, frame or utilize framing techniques to enclose any NoteShred trademark, logo or other proprietary information, including the images or pages found at the Sites, the content of any text or the layout/design of any page or form contained on a page on the Sites without NoteShred’s express written consent. Except as noted above, you are not conveyed any right or license by implication, estoppel or otherwise in or under any patent, trademark, copyright or proprietary right of NoteShred or any third party. NoteShred makes no claim or representation regarding, and accepts no responsibility for, the quality, content, nature or reliability of third-party Web sites accessible by hyperlink from the Sites, or Web sites linking to the Sites. Such sites are not under the control of NoteShred and NoteShred is not responsible for the contents of any linked site or any link contained in a linked site, or any review, changes or updates to such sites. NoteShred provides these links to you only as a convenience, and the inclusion of any link does not imply affiliation, endorsement or adoption by NoteShred of any site or any information contained therein. When you leave the Sites, you should be aware that our terms and policies no longer govern. You should review the applicable terms and policies, including privacy and data gathering practices, of any site to which you navigate from the Sites.

Payments

The Site offers products and services for sale. The Site does not handle payments for these products directly, but rather refers these payments to a secure third-party payment processor which handles all aspects of the payment process. Any payment issues or disputes should be resolved directly with the payment processor. Once we have been notified by the payment processor that a payment has been made, and that the payment has successfully passed a fraud review, access will be granted to the product or service being purchased as soon as possible, however we make no guarantees of timeliness or immediacy. Note that our system keeps track of your customer identification details (but no payment card information) within the external payment processing service so that we may provide automatic renewal of subscriptions or services.

Breaches Of These Terms Of Service

Without prejudice to our other rights under these terms of use, if you breach these terms of use in any way, we may take such action as we deem appropriate to deal with the breach, including suspending your access to the website, prohibiting you from accessing the website and blocking computers using your IP address from accessing the website.

Termination

Notwithstanding any of these Terms of Use, NoteShred reserves the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, to terminate your license to use the Sites, and to block or prevent future your access to and use of the Sites.

Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing paragraph, NoteShred does not warrant that:
