Terms of use - General dispositions

Thanks for using SecureIT.

Please read these Terms carefully. By using SecureIT or signing up for an account, you’re agreeing to these Terms. This is a legal agreement. We’ll start with the basics, including a few definitions that should help you understand this agreement. SecureIT (“SecureIT” or the “Service”) is a cybersecurity service offered through the URL secureit.io (we’ll refer to it as the “Website”) that allows you to check for known information technologis vulnerabilities that your servers/infrastructure might be exposed to. SecureIT has employees, independent contractors, and representatives (“our Team”). As a customer of the Service or a representative of an entity that’s a customer of the Service, you’re a “Member” according to this agreement (or “you”). Usage of our Service is possible through a sign up, or through a “Anonymous/Demo” mode that doesn’t require the sign up process.

These Terms of Use (“Terms,” including our Privacy Policy and Acceptable Use Policy) define the terms and conditions under which you’re allowed to use SecureIT, and how we’ll treat your regular or anonymous account while you’re a Member. If you have any questions about our terms, feel free to contact us.

Terms of use - Regular or "Anonymous" Accounts

1 - Eligibility

In order to use SecureIT, you must:

be at least eighteen (18) years old and able to enter into contracts; Either complete the registration process, or use our Anonymous/Demo mode; agree to the Terms; and provide true, complete, and up to date contact information whenever prompted for it. By using SecureIT, you represent and warrant that you meet all the requirements listed above, and that you won’t use SecureIT in a way that violates any laws or regulations. (Representing and warranting is like making a legally enforceable promise.) SecureIT may refuse service, block incoming traffic, close accounts of any users, and change eligibility requirements at any time.

2- Term

The Term begins when you use our application in ‘Anonymous/Demo’ mode, and/or when you sign up for SecureIT and continues as long as you use the Service. Using either the Anonymous/Demo service or the registered one means that you’ve officially “signed” the Terms. If you sign up for SecureIT on behalf of a company or other entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to accept these Terms on their behalf.

3- Closing Your Account

You or SecureIT may terminate this Agreement at any time and for any reason by giving Notice to the other party. We may suspend our Service to you at any time, with or without cause. If we terminate your account without cause, we’ll refund a prorated portion of your monthly prepayment. We won’t refund or reimburse you if there’s cause, like a violation of these Terms or our Acceptable Use Policy. Once terminated, we may permanently delete your account and all the data associated with it. If you don’t log in to your account for 12b or more months for a regular account, or 2 days for an ‘Anonymous/Demo’ account, we may treat your account as “inactive” and permanently delete the account and all the data associated with it.

4- Changes

We may change any of the Terms by posting revised Terms of Use on our Website and/or by sending an email to the last email address you gave us. Unless you terminate your account within ten (10) days, the new Terms will be effective immediately and apply to any continued or new use of SecureIT. We may change the Website, the Service, or any features of the Service at any time.

5- Account and Password

You’re responsible for keeping your account name and password confidential. You’re also responsible for any account that you have access to, whether or not you authorized the use. You’ll immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your accounts. We’re not responsible for any losses due to stolen or hacked passwords. We don’t have access to your current password, and for security reasons, we may only reset your password.

6- Anonymous/Demo mode credentials

While the access to the data in Anonymous/Demo mode is restricted in time, and the credentials are, under normal circumstances, ephemeral, you are responsible to clearing any data and to keep those same credentials secure. These kinds of accounts should be treated as a try before signing up feature and thus shouldn’t be relied upon for continuous use of our service.

7- Account Disputes

We don’t know the inner workings of your organization or the nature of your personal relationships, and we don’t arbitrate disputes over who owns an account. You won’t request access to or information about an account that’s not yours, and you’ll resolve any account-related disputes directly with the other party. We decide who owns an account based on the content of the emails in that account, and if multiple people or entities are identified in the content, then we’ll rely on the contact information listed for that account.

Terms of use - Rights

8- Proprietary Rights Owned by Us

You will respect our proprietary rights in the Website and the software used to provide SecureIT (proprietary rights include patents, trademarks, service marks, trade secrets, and copyrights).

9- Privacy Policy

We may use and disclose your information according to our Privacy Policy. Our Privacy Policy will be treated as part of these Terms.

10- Right to Review Data

We may view, copy, and internally distribute content from your usage of our Service to create algorithms and programs (“Tools”) that help us spot problem accounts, or improve our Service. We also use these Tools to find Members who violate these Terms or laws. For example, We study data internally to help us make decisions regardind which Operating systems/Webapp languages to offer more services for.

Terms of use - Rules and abuse

15- U.S. Export Controls

The software that supports the Services (the “Software”) is subject to United States export controls. Export laws are set up by the government to keep certain goods and services from reaching other countries, usually because of security concerns or trade agreements.

Terms of use - Liability

12- Limitation of Liability

Our total liability for all claims made about the Service in any month will be no more than what you paid us for the Service the month before.

13- No Warranties

To the maximum extent permitted by law, we provide the material on the Website and the Service as is. That means we don’t provide warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including but not limited to warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. Since people use SecureIT for a variety of reasons, we can’t guarantee that it will meet your specific needs.

14- Indemnity

You agree to indemnify and hold us and our Team harmless from any losses, including attorney fees that result from any claims you make that aren’t allowed under these Terms due to a “Limitation of Liability” or other provision.

26- Amendments and Waiver

Any Additional Terms will be considered incorporated into these Terms when you activate the feature.

Where there’s a conflict between these Terms and the Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will control.

That information may include your name, physical address, email address, IP address, phone number, credit card information, as well as details including gender, occupation, location, purchase history, and other demographic information.

(e) Web beacons: We use web beacons on our Websites and in our emails. When we send emails to Members, we may track behavior such as who opened the emails and who clicked the links. This allows us to measure the performance of our outgoing email campaigns and to improve our features for specific segments of Members. To do this, we include single pixel gifs, also called web beacons, in emails we send. Web beacons allow us to collect information about when you open the email, your IP address, your browser or email client type, and other similar details.

(f) Information from other sources: We may receive more information about you or your Subscribers, such as name, email address, demographic information, IP addresses, location, and use of social media websites, by searching the Internet or querying third parties (we refer to that information as “Supplemental Information”). We use Supplemental Information to develop features including Social Profiles, a tool that helps you learn about your Subscribers and allows you to send them more relevant content.

(g) Information from the use of our Mobile Apps: When you use our mobile apps, we may collect certain information in addition to information described elsewhere in this Policy. For example, we may collect information about the type of device and operating system you use. We may ask you if you want to receive push notifications about activity in your account.

Consistent with the uses of Personal Information covered in Section 6, we may transfer Personal Information of you or your clients to companies that help us promote, provide, or support our Services or the services of our Members (“Service Providers”).

(b) Social media platforms and widgets. Our Websites may include social media features, such as the Facebook Like button. These features may collect information about your IP address and which page you are visiting on our Website, and they may set a cookie to make sure the feature functions properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Website. We also maintain presences on social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Any information, communications, or materials you submit to us via a social media platform is done at your own risk without any expectation of privacy. We cannot control the actions of other users of these platforms or the actions of the platforms themselves. Your interactions with those features and platforms are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide them.

(c) Links to third-party websites. Our Websites include links to other websites, whose privacy practices may be different from SecureIT’s. If you submit Personal Information to any of those sites, your information is governed by their privacy policies. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy policy of any Website you visit.

9- Third Parties

We may disclose Personal Information to the following types of third parties for the purposes described in this policy:

(a) Service providers. Sometimes, we need to use third party Service Providers in order to provide and support the features of our Services. For example, if it is necessary to provide you something you have requested (like send you a T-shirt or enable a feature such as Social Profiles), then we may share your Personal Information with a Service Provider for that purpose. We will tell you we are working with a Service Provider whenever reasonably possible, and you may request at any time the names of our Service Providers. Just like with the other third parties we work with, these third party Service Providers enter into a contract that requires them to use your Personal Information in a manner that is consistent with this policy.

(b) Advertising partners. We may partner with third parties to display advertising on our Websites or to manage and serve our advertising on other sites and may share Personal Information with them for this purpose. All third parties with which we share this information are required to use your Personal Information in a manner that is consistent with this policy. We and our third party partners may use cookies and other tracking technologies, such as pixels and web beacons, to gather information about your activities on our Websites and other sites in order to provide you with targeted advertising based on your browsing activities and interests. For more information about cookies and other tracking technologies, please see our Cookie Statement here.

Participation in our Promotions is completely voluntary. Information requested for entry may include personal contact information such as your name, address, date of birth, phone number, email address, username, and similar details. We use the information you provide to administer Our Promotions. We may also, unless prohibited by the Promotion’s rules or law, use the information provided to communicate with you, or other people you select, about our Services. We may share this information with our affiliates and other organizations or Service Providers in line with this policy and the rules posted for the Promotion.

Privacy Policy - Security

11- Notice of Breach of Security

If a security breach causes an unauthorized intrusion into our system that materially affects you or your clients, then SecureIT will notify you as soon as possible and later report the action we took in response.

12- Safeguarding Your Information

We take reasonable and appropriate measures to protect Personal and other Information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, taking into account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the Personal and Business Information.

Our credit card processing vendor uses security measures to protect your information both during the transaction and after it is complete. Our vendor is certified as compliant with card association security initiatives, including the Visa Cardholder Information Security and Compliance (CISP), MasterCard® (SDP), and Discovery Information Security and Compliance (DISC). If you have any questions about the security of your Personal Information, you may contact us at our listed email.

SecureIT regular accounts require a username and password to log in. You must keep your username and password secure, and never disclose it to a third party. Because the information we process is so sensitive, account passwords are encrypted, which means we cannot see your passwords. We cannot resend forgotten passwords either. We will only reset them.

SecureIT ‘Anonymous/Demo’ accounts are issued temporary credentials to your browser. Access to the data may be time limited or not depending on a warning that we provide on our service page. Regardless of such a time limit, you are responsible to keep the credentials safe and/or to delete the data when you have used it, or keep it and transfer it to a registered account by signing up.

Privacy Policy - Compliance

13- We Operate in the European Union

Our offices are located in Lisbon, Portugal, and the servers are in France and other countries in the European Union, so your information may be transferred to, stored, or processed in the European Union. While the data protection, privacy, and other laws of the European Union might not be as comprehensive as those in your country, we take many steps to protect your privacy, including offering a data processing agreement. By using our Websites, you understand and consent to the collection, storage, processing, and transfer of your information to our facilities, and those third parties with whom we share it as described in this policy.

14- Accuracy of Data, Transparency, and Choice

We do our best to keep your data accurate and up to date, to the extent that you provide us with the information we need to do so. If your data changes (for example, if you have a new email address), then you are responsible for notifying us of those changes. Upon request, we will provide you with information about whether we hold, or process on behalf of a third party, any of your Personal Information.

We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as long as needed to provide you with our Services. We may also retain and use your information in order to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, prevent abuse, and enforce our Agreements.

Legal - Cookie statement

This Cookie Statement explains how we, SecureIT (“SecureIT”, “we”, “us”, and “ours”) use cookies and similar technologies to recognise you when you visit http://secureit.io, https://beta.secureit.io, https://app.secureit.io, or any website or mobile application owned, operated or controlled by us (collectively, “Websites”). It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, SecureIT) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

Why do we use cookies?

We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Websites. Third parties serve cookies through our Websites for advertising, analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.

The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Websites and the purposes they perform are described in the table below:

Types of cookie Who serves these cookies How to refuse
Essential website cookies: These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our Websites and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas. SecureIT Because these cookies are strictly necessary to deliver the Websites to you, you cannot refuse them without impacting how our Websites function. You can block or delete them by changing your browser settings however, as described below under the heading “How can I control cookies?”
Performance and functionality cookies: These cookies are used to enhance the performance and functionality of our Websites but are non-essential to their use. However, without these cookies, certain functionality may become unavailable. SecureIT; Survs (these cookies are used to embed forms/surveys on our website, such as our Contact and Feedback forms and other surveys we make available to website visitors); Resend (these cookies support our chat service and accelerate loading times for chat functionality available through our website) To refuse these cookies, please follow the instructions below under the heading “How can I control cookies?”
Analytics and customisation cookies: These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our Websites are being used or how effective our marketing campaigns are, or to help us customise our Websites and application for you in order to enhance your experience. SecureIT; Google, as well as its subsidiary, DoubleClick; HotJar; Mixpanel - These cookies enable analytics reporting for visitor engagement on the Websites. To refuse these cookies, please follow the instructions below under the heading “How can I control cookies?”

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons and pixels?

Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. We and our third party partners may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons, pixels (or “clear gifs”) and other tracking technologies. These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our Websites or, in the case of web beacons, opened an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Websites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to serve targeted advertisements to you and others like you, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of marketing campaigns. While you may not have the ability to specifically reject or disable these tracking technologies, in many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly; accordingly, in those instances, declining cookies will impair functioning of these technologies. You can control the use of those cookies directly with these third parties. Please note you might continue to receive generic ads.

How can I control cookies?

You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. You can exercise your cookie preferences by clicking on the appropriate opt-out links provided in the cookie table above.

You can set or amend your web browser controls to accept or refuse cookies. If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our Websites though your access to some functionality and areas of our Websites may be restricted. As the means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser-to-browser, you should visit your browser’s help menu for more information.

How often will you update this Cookie Statement?

We may update this Cookie Statement from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Please therefore re-visit this Cookie Statement regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.

Where can I get further information?

If you have any questions about our use of cookies or other technologies, please email us.

Legal - API Guidelines

SecureIT (the “Services”) have APIs that you can access to upload data (the “APIs”). The APIs make it possible for developers/sysadmins and regular users to better use the Services and build integrations that help other people use the Services in new ways (each an “Integration”). We provide these APIs to allow people to build on and benefit from SecureIT. At the same time, we have to protect our system, as well as our users’ rights. That’s why this API Use Policy (the “Policy”) exists. Your use of the APIs must comply with both this Policy and our Terms of Use.

1- Abuse

You won’t use the API to take any actions that violate our Acceptable Use Policy. You’ll follow all documentation we provide for the APIs. You won’t attempt to hack or change the way the Services function. We may throttle your use of the APIs at any time. We may monitor your use of the APIs for compliance with these rules, and we may deny You access to the API or shut down your Integration if you try to go around or exceed the limitations we set.

2- Privacy

You’ll respect the privacy of our users. Your Integration must display a privacy policy for users, detailing the information you’ll collect from them when they use the Integration.

3- Ownership

We own all worldwide rights, titles, and interest in the Services and the APIs, including all intellectual property rights, marks, code, and features. You won’t infringe or copy our code, design, or content. Any rights not expressly granted by this policy are withheld, so if you don’t see it here, then it’s not a right we’re giving you. You own all worldwide rights, titles, and interest in the Integration, except for the APIs, our marks, and the Services, including all intellectual property rights. If you give us comments about the APIs or the Services, we may copy, modify, create derivative works, display, disclose, distribute, and use that feedback without any obligation to compensate you.

4- Use of Marks

You may only use our name and marks (meaning our logos, mascots, and copyrighted images) according to these guidelines. You may not alter or remove any proprietary notices in our marks. You won’t use our name or marks in your Integration name or logo, or in any way that implies an endorsement by us. If you use our marks to create your logo or name, you’ll immediately assign those rights to us at no expense.

5- Representations and Warranties

You represent and warrant that you’ll maintain all the licenses required for your Integration, and that your Integration won’t violate any law or regulations in any way.

6- Disclaimer

To the maximum extent permitted by law, We provide the APIs as-is. That means we don’t provide warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including but not limited to merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose.

7- Updates

We may update or modify the APIs and this Policy from time to time by posting the changes on this site or notifying you via email. These changes may affect your use of the APIs or the way your Integration interacts with the API. If we make a change that’s unacceptable to you, you should stop using the APIs. Continued use of the APIs means you accept the change.

8- Confidentiality

You may have access to confidential, proprietary, and non-public information specific to the APIs (“Confidential Information”). You may use this information only to use and build with the APIs. You won’t disclose the Confidential Information to anyone without our written consent, and you’ll protect the Confidential Information from unauthorized use and disclosure in the same way you’d protect your own confidential information.

9- Indemnification

You’ll indemnify and hold us and our Team harmless from any losses (including attorney fees) that result from third-party claims that relate to your use of the API.

10- The Rest

This policy is part of our Terms of Use. This policy doesn’t create or imply any partnership, agency, or joint venture.

Thanks for taking the time to read our API Use Policy. People like you are why we have an API in the first place.
