- Use of Service
Uploading Customer Data
If the Customer uploads Customer Data to the Portal or through the Service, such Customer Data and any processing of such Customer Data must be in compliance with these Terms and applicable law. All rights, title and interest in and to the Customer Data belong to the Customer or third persons whether posted and/or uploaded by you or made available on or through the Service by Provider. By uploading Customer Data to the Portal or through the Service, Customer authorizes Provider to process the Customer Data. The Customer is responsible for ensuring that: the Customer and any of the Users associated with the Account do not create, transmit, display or make otherwise available any Customer Data that violates the terms of these Terms, the rights of Provider, other Customers or Users, persons or organizations or is harmful (for example viruses, worms, malware and other destructive codes), offensive, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortuous, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, invasive of another’s privacy, hateful or otherwise unlawful; and the Customer and all of the Users associated with the Account have the necessary rights to use the Customer Data, including to insert it into the Service and process it by means of the Account.
No Guarantee of Accuracy
Provider does not guarantee any accuracy with respect to any information contained in any Customer Data, and strongly recommends that you think carefully about what you transmit, submit or post to or through the Service. You understand that all information contained in Customer Data is the sole responsibility of the person from whom such Customer Data originated. This means that Customer, and not Provider, is entirely responsible for all Customer Data that is uploaded, posted, transmitted, or otherwise made available through the Service, as well as for any actions taken by the Provider’s or other Customers or Users as a result of such Customer Data.
Unlawful Customer Data
Provider is not obliged to pre-screen, monitor or filter any Customer Data or acts of its processing by the Customer in order to discover any unlawful nature therein. However, if such unlawful Customer Data or the action of its unlawful processing is discovered or brought to the attention of Provider or if there is reason to believe that certain Customer Data is unlawful, Provider has the right to notify the Customer of such unlawful Customer Data; deny its publication on the Portal or its insertion to the Service; demand that the Customer bring the unlawful Customer Data into compliance with these Terms and applicable law; temporarily or permanently remove the unlawful Customer Data from the Portal or Account, restrict access to it or delete it.
If Provider is presented convincing evidence that the Customer Data is not unlawful, Provider may, at its sole discretion, restore such Customer Data, which was removed from the Portal or Account or access to which was restricted.
In addition, in the event Provider believes in its sole discretion Customer Data violates applicable laws, rules or regulations or these Terms, Provider may (but has no obligation), to remove such Customer Data at any time with or without notice.
Provider as the data processor will assist the Customer as the data controller in meeting the Customer’s obligations under Regulation (EU) 2016/679, providing subject access, and allowing data subjects to exercise their rights under Regulation (EU) 2016/679
Provider may disclose a Customer’s confidential information to the extent compelled by law to do so. In such instance, Provider will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide the Customer with prior notice of the compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and Customer shall provide reasonable assistance, at its cost, if Customer wishes to contest the disclosure. If Provider is compelled by law to disclose Customer’s confidential information as part of a civil proceeding to which Provider is a party, and Customer is not contesting the disclosure, Customer will reimburse Provider for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to that confidential information.
Data Processing Contract
For the purposes of Article 28 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, these Terms constitute the data processing contract between the Customer as the data controller and the Provider as the data processor. The Customer hereby instructs the Provider to process the data as described in these Terms.
Provider provides the Service where the Customer, as the data controller, can collect, store and organize the personal data of data subjects determined by the Customer. The Service has been designed to work as a website protection tool but, to the extent not regulated by these Terms, the Customer decides how they use the Service.
Provider will process data on behalf of the Customer until the termination of the Service in accordance with these Terms. Upon termination, Provider will store the Customer data for a period of six months, should the Customer wish to reopen the Account to resume the use of the Service or to export Customer Data, unless instructed otherwise by the Customer. Provider deletes or returns all the personal data to the controller after the end of the provision of services relating to processing, and deletes existing copies unless the applicable law requires storage of the personal data.
Provider ensures that persons authorised to process the personal data have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality. The Provider takes all measures required pursuant to Article 32 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679. Provider undertakes to make available to the controller all information necessary to demonstrate compliance with their obligations and to allow for and contribute to audits, including inspections, conducted or mandated by the Customer as the data controller.

Generally Provider processes your data i) for the performance of a contract entered into (or prior to entering into a contract) between you and Provider, ii) based on your consent or iii) to fulfil a legal obligation, but may process your data also for other reasons outlined in the applicable law to ensure lawfulness of data processing. Where the Provider processes your data based on your consent, you may withdraw the consent at any time for any reason, or no reason at all, but this will not affect the lawfulness of processing your data by the Provider before the withdrawal. Provider may also process your data under Provider's legitimate interests.
User-provided information. When you use the Service, as a registered user or as a visitor (i.e. an individual other than a User, who uses the public area, but has no access to the restricted areas of the Portal or the Service), you may voluntarily provide, and Provider may collect your personal data. Examples of Personal Data include name, email address, mailing address, mobile phone number, and credit card or other billing information.

Information collected by Customers. A Customer may store or upload into the Service user data. Provider has no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal data it hosts as part of user data. Each Customer is responsible for providing notice to third persons concerning the purpose for which User collects their personal data and how this personal data is processed in or through the Service as part of the Customer Data.
Automatically collected information. When a user or visitor uses the Service, Provider may automatically record certain information from the user’s or visitor’s device by using various types of technology, including cookies, “clear gifs" or “web beacons.” This “automatically collected" information may include IP address or other device address or ID, web browser and/or device type, the web pages or sites visited just before or just after using the Service, the pages or other content the user or visitor views or interacts with on the Service, and the dates and times of the visit, access, or use of the Service. Provider also may use these technologies to collect information regarding a visitor or user’s interaction with email messages, such as whether the visitor or user opens, clicks on, or forwards a message. In such cases this information is gathered from all users and visitors.
Information from other sources. Provider may obtain information, including personal data, from third parties and sources other than the Service, e.g. from partners, advertisers, credit rating agencies. If the Provider combines or associates information from other sources with personal data that Provider collects through the Service, Provider will treat the combined information as personal data in accordance with these Terms.
The Service features are constantly evolving and new features are added regularly. So it is not possible to provide a complete list of data that Provider processes about you. The data that Provider processes depends on the Service you use and may differ between Users and Customers.
Use of the collected data
Operations. Provider uses the information other than Customer Data to operate, maintain, enhance and provide all features of the Service, to provide the services and information that you request, to respond to comments and questions and to provide support to users of the Service. Provider processes Customer Data solely in accordance with the directions provided by the applicable Customer.
Improvements. Provider uses the information to understand and analyze the usage trends and preferences of the Portal visitors and the Service users, to improve the Service, and to develop new products, services, features, and functionality. Should this purpose require Provider to process client data, then the data will only be used in anonymized or aggregated form.
Communications. Provider may use a visitor’s or user’s email address or other information to contact that visitor or user for administrative purposes such as customer service, to address intellectual property infringement, right of privacy violations or defamation issues related to the Customer Data or personal data posted on the Service or with updates on promotions and events, relating to products and services offered by us and by third parties Provider works with. You have the ability to opt-out of receiving any promotional communications.
Cookies and other tracking technologies.

Relationship of the Parties
The parties will act solely as independent contractors. These Terms shall not be construed as creating an agency, partnership, joint venture, fiduciary duty, or any other form of legal association between the Customer and the Provider, and the Customer shall not represent to the contrary, whether expressly, by implication, appearance or otherwise. These Terms are not for the benefit of any third parties.
If any term, condition or provision of these Terms is held to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal in whole or in part for any reason, that provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to affect the intent of the parties. The validity and enforceability of the remaining terms, conditions or provisions, or portions of them, shall not be affected.
These Terms are the entire agreement between Customer and Provider regarding Customer’s use of the Service and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous agreements, proposals or representations, written or oral, concerning its subject matter. Except as otherwise provided herein, no modification, amendment, or waiver of any provision of these Terms will be effective unless in writing and signed by the party against whom the modification, amendment or waiver is to be asserted.
Customer may not, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise, assign or transfer these Terms or delegate any of its rights and/or obligations under these Terms without the Provider's prior written consent. Any attempted assignment, transfer or delegation without such prior written consent will be void and unenforceable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Customer, or its permitted successive assignees or transferees, may assign or transfer these Terms or delegate any rights or obligations hereunder without consent: (1) to any entity controlled by, or under common control with the Customer, or its permitted successive assignees or transferees; or (2) in connection with a merger, reorganization, transfer, sale of assets or product lines, or change of control or ownership of the Customer, or its permitted successive assignees or transferees.
Failure of either Party to exercise or enforce any provision of or any of its rights under these Terms shall not be deemed a waiver of future enforcement of that or any other provision or right.
Except as otherwise specified in these Terms, all notices related to these Terms will be in writing and will be effective upon (a) personal delivery, (b) the second business day after mailing, or (c), except for notices of termination or an indemnifiable claim (“Legal Notices”), which shall clearly be identifiable as Legal Notices, the day of sending by email. Billing-related notices to you will be addressed to the relevant billing contact designated by you. All other notices to you will be addressed to the relevant Service system administrator designated by you.
