We describe what we collect and use from information you provide when you use our website, software and services ("Services").
We collect and use the following information to provide, improve and protect our Services:
Account. We collect your email address and associate it with your account.
Services. When you use our Services, we store, transmit and execute your uploaded files and associated data (from executable files to images, audio or other files) in their entirety.
Usage. We may collect information from and about the devices you use to access the Services. This includes IP addresses, the type of browser and device you use, and identifiers associated with your devices. Your devices (depending on their settings) may also transmit location information to the Services.
Cookies and other technologies. We use technologies like cookies to provide, improve, protect and promote our Services. For example, cookies help us with things like remembering your username for your next visit, understanding how you are interacting with our Services, and improving them based on that information. You can set your browser to not accept cookies, but this may limit your ability to use the Services.
We may share information as discussed below, but we won't sell it to advertisers or other third-parties.
Other applications. You can also give third parties access to your information, files, and account. Just remember that their use of your information will be governed by their privacy policies and terms.
Law & Order. We may disclose your information to third parties if we determine that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with the law; (ii) protect any person from death or serious bodily injury; (iii) prevent fraud or abuse of Dithen or our users; or (iv) protect Dithen's property rights.
We take the responsibility of handling your files and data very seriously. We believe that our users' data should receive the same legal protections regardless of whether it's stored on our services or on their home computer's hard drive. When receiving and responding to government requests for our users' data, we shall abide by the laws of the United Kingdom and the European Union on data protection and citizen privacy.
Information Protection and Retention
Security. While we make every effort to protect Dithen's servers from unauthorized access, you should also ensure to use a strong password to protect your account from being accessed by unauthorized entities. The Dithen website uses HTTP Secure to keep your information secure when transiting through the Internet. In addition, account verification via email verification is periodically requested by Dithen to ensure the account creator remains in control of the account.
Dithen is hosted over third-party cloud-computing servers and uses well-established software infrastructures like Amazon Web Services. Dithen cannot be held responsible for security problems emerging from inherent flaws of such services and infrastructures.
Retention. We'll retain information you store on our Services for as long as we need it to provide you the Services. If you delete your account, we'll also delete this information. But please note: (1) there might be some latency in deleting this information from our servers and back-up storage; and (2) we may retain this information if necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, or enforce our agreements.
Around the world. To provide you with the Services, we may store, process and transmit information in locations around the world - including those outside your country. Information may also be stored locally on the devices you use to access the Services.
Changes to This Policy
If we are involved in a reorganization, merger, acquisition or sale of our assets, your information may be transferred as part of that deal. We will notify you via a message to the email address associated with your account of any such deal and outline your choices in that event.
If you have questions or concerns about Dithen, our Services and privacy, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dithen Ltd Terms of Service
Posted: May 1, 2015
Your Data Elements & Your Permissions
When you use our Services, you provide us with data like your files, executable files, content, email messages, contacts and so on ("Your Data Elements"). Your Data Elements are yours. These Terms don't give us any rights to Your Data Elements except for the limited rights that enable us to offer the Services.
We need your permission to do things like hosting Your Data Elements, backing it up, executing files, and sharing it when you ask us to. Our Services may also provide you with features like photo thumbnails, document editing and preview, easy sorting, editing, sharing and searching. These and other features may require our systems to access, store and scan Your Data Elements. You give us permission to do those things, and this permission extends to trusted third parties we work with.
Sharing Your Data Elements
Our Services let you share Your Data Elements with others, so please think carefully about what you share.
You're responsible for your conduct, Your Data Elements and you must comply with our Acceptable Use Policy. Content in the Services may be protected by others' intellectual property rights. By using Dithen, you confirm you will not copy, upload, download or share content and executable files unless you have the right to do so.
We may review your conduct and content for compliance with these Terms and our Acceptable Use Policy. However, we have no obligation to do so. We are not responsible for the content users of Dithen use, post and share via the Services.
Please safeguard your password to the Services, make sure that others don't have access to it, and keep your account information current.
Finally, our Services are not intended for and may not be used by people under the age of 13. By using our Services, you are representing to us that you're over 13.
Some of our Services allow you to download client software ("Software") which may update automatically. So long as you comply with these Terms, we give you a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable, revocable license to use the Software, solely to access the Services. To the extent any component of the Software may be offered under an open source license, we'll make that license available to you and the provisions of that license may expressly override some of these Terms. Unless the following restrictions are prohibited by law, you agree not to reverse engineer or decompile the Services, attempt to do so, or assist anyone in doing so.
Our Data Elements
The Services may be protected by copyright, trademark, and other U.K., E.U., and foreign laws. These Terms don't grant you any right, title or interest in the Services, others' content in the Services, Dithen Ltd trademarks, logos and other brand features. We welcome feedback, but note that we may use comments or suggestions without any obligation to you.
We respect the intellectual property of others and ask that you do too. We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement if they comply with the law. We reserve the right to delete or disable content alleged to be infringing and terminate accounts of repeat infringers. Our designated agent for notice of alleged copyright infringement on the Services is:
843 FINCHLEY ROAD, LONDON, NW11 8NA, GB
Billing. You can increase your storage and usage of our Services and add paid features to your account (turning your account into a "Paid Account"). We'll automatically bill you from the date you convert to a Paid Account and on each usage of our Services as notified by our website and by email to the email you used to register with us (if requested). You're responsible for all applicable taxes, and we'll charge tax when required to do so.
No Refunds. You may cancel your Dithen Paid Account at any time but you won't be issued a refund unless it's legally required.
Downgrades. Your Paid Account will remain in effect until it's cancelled or terminated under these Terms. If you don't pay for your Paid Account on time, we reserve the right to suspend it or reduce your access to our Services to free space levels.
Changes. We may change the fees in effect but will give you advance notice of these changes via a message to the email address associated with your account.
You're free to stop using our Services at any time. We also reserve the right to suspend or end our Services at any time at our discretion and without notice. For example, we may suspend or terminate your use of our Services if you're not complying with these Terms, or use our Services in a manner that would cause us legal liability, disrupt the Services or disrupt others' use of the Services. Except for Paid Accounts, we reserve the right to terminate and delete your account if you haven't accessed our Services for 12 consecutive months. We'll of course provide you with notice via the email address associated with your account before we do so.
Services "AS IS"
We strive to provide great Services, but there are certain things that we can't guarantee. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, DITHEN LTD AND ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ABOUT THE SERVICES. THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED "AS IS." WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. Some states don't allow the disclaimers in this paragraph, so they may not apply to you.
Limitation of Liability
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL DITHEN LTD, ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS OR DISTRIBUTORS BE LIABLE FOR (A) ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR ANY LOSS OF USE, DATA, BUSINESS, OR PROFITS, REGARDLESS OF LEGAL THEORY, WHETHER OR NOT DITHEN LTD HAS BEEN WARNED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE; (B) AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO THE SERVICES MORE THAN THE GREATER OF $20 OR THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO DITHEN LTD FOR THE PAST 12 MONTHS OF THE SERVICES IN QUESTION. Some states don't allow the types of limitations in this paragraph, so they may not apply to you.
These Terms will be governed by U.K. law except for its conflicts of laws principles.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Dithen Ltd. with respect to the subject matter of these Terms, and supersede and replace any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of these Terms. These Terms create no third party beneficiary rights.
Waiver, Severability & Assignment
Dithen's failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be void. Dithen may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services.
We may revise these Terms from time to time, and will always post the most current version on our website. If a revision meaningfully reduces your rights, we will notify you (by, for example, sending a message to the email address associated with your account, posting on our blog or on this page). By continuing to use or access the Services after the revisions come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.
