Terms of Service
Last updated July 4, 2019
These terms of service (“Terms”) cover your use and access to our services, software and website (collectively referred to as ”Services”). The Services are provided by Tefincom S.A. (“we,” “us,” “our,” or “NordLocker”). By visiting our website, installing and / or using the Services, you acknowledge that you have read the Terms, understand them and agree to be bound by these Terms.
Please note that the Terms constitute a binding legal agreement between you and NordLocker. If you do not agree to these Terms or any provisions hereof, please do not install and do not use our software, our mobile application and/or any of our products or services. If you’re using our Services for an organization, you’re agreeing to these Terms on behalf of that organization.
NordLocker may modify the Terms from time to time. We will post a notice on our website any time these Terms have been amended or updated substantially. The amendment of Terms may also be communicated to you by sending an email. The Terms are binding from the time that they are updated on our website. It is your responsibility to check and read current Terms periodically.
If you have questions or concerns regarding these Terms, please contact us at [email protected].
NordLocker encrypts your files to protect them from hacking, snooping, data breaches, or other cyber threats out there. Files can only be accessed with your master password. No prying eyes.
In order to use our Services, you must set up an account. You are solely responsible for all usage or activity on your account including, but not limited to, use of the account by any person who uses your account, with or without authorization, or who has access to any computer on which your account resides or is accessible.
Your use of the Services is at your own risk. The Services may be modified, updated, interrupted or suspended at any time without notice or liability. We do not bear any liability for any harm or other adverse consequences to you, caused by this. NordLocker, its owners, employees, agents and others that are involved with the Services are not in any way or form liable for any harm of any kind executed or not executed, resulting from or arising through or from the use of any account registered with Services.
NordLocker guarantees a 99.9% service uptime. In any event, NordLocker shall not be liable for any loss, monetary or non-monetary harm beyond what the client paid to NordLocker, and this shall not include attorney fees or court costs irrespective of any laws or statutes that prescribe otherwise.
Subject to the terms and conditions of these Terms, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, personal, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, license to: (1) download and use a copy of the NordLocker software; and (2) use the Services, including, without limitation, the products and services made available on or through the NordLocker software or our website. No other right or license of any kind is granted to you hereunder with respect to the Services. The license provided herein is effective until terminated. This license automatically terminates if you fail to comply with these Terms.
The Services, including, but not limited to, the NordLocker software, mobile application and all other items, are owned and copyrighted by NordLocker, and are protected worldwide. We retain all right, title and interest in and to the Services and any portion thereof, including, without limitation, all copyrights, trademarks, service marks, trade secrets and other intellectual property rights. You shall not take any action to jeopardize, limit or interfere in any manner with our ownership of and rights with respect to the Services. All rights are reserved unless otherwise noted.
The NordLocker app for any platform or operating system supported by NordLocker can be downloaded free of charge. NordLocker provides the Services for free (Free version) and on a payment basis (Premium version). Please note that Free version of NordLocker has limited functionality – it allows users to only view encrypted files.
Premium version users enjoying the full functionality of Services will be able to encrypt new files and share them with other users. Premium NordLocker Services are subscribed on a service period basis. You choose the service period and the payment method yourself when you sign up for the Services. Your service will automatically be renewed, and your chosen payment method will be charged at the end of each service period, repeating the length of the previous service period, unless you decide to cancel your subscription for the Services.
If you wish to claim a refund, you can do so within 30 days following your purchase of NordLocker Service. We seek your full satisfaction with our services. However, we would like to troubleshoot an issue you experience first. There are common service configuration issues that may hinder the Service for you and we resolve most of user issues encountered.
Subscriptions purchased via the iTunes/App Store are subject to iTunes/App Store refund policies. This means we cannot grant refunds if you purchased an app through iTunes/App Store – you will have to contact store support for that. Payments made using prepaid cards or gift cards will not be refunded. For payments made in cryptocurrency, the equivalent amount in US Dollars will be refunded in the same cryptocurrency (based on the rate of exchange at the moment of refund).
You have a right to cancel your account at any time. You can cancel a recurring subscription from your website profile, iTunes/App Store or Google Play Store. Cancelled accounts will not be refunded for the unused part of the ongoing service period.
NordLocker reserves the right to suspend or refuse service to anyone at any time for any reason. No refunds will be considered for accounts terminated for violation of these Terms.
Consistent with applicable law, NordLocker does not knowingly collect personal information from minors without parental consent. If we learn that we have inadvertently obtained information in violation of applicable laws prohibiting collection of information from children without such consent, we will promptly delete it.
