1. Welcome to CloudGenic Network.
("CloudGenic Network", "we", "us") provides cloud storage and communication services. We provide services ourselves and via our related or affiliated entities, payment processors and resellers who act on our behalf, at our website at https://cloudgenic.net, subdomains and related sites ("website"), and our application programming interface (“API”). Using CloudGenic Network, you and other users can encrypt your files and data by way of user-controlled encryption ("UCE"), upload, access, store, manage, share, communicate, download and decrypt files, information, material, and other data (all of which we call "data" in these terms) and give access to that data to others (all together, "services" and each, a "service"). If you have questions about how to use our services or the great things you can do with CloudGenic Network, email us at or check our contact page for details of who to contact.
2. These terms are binding and apply to any use of the services and website by you and anyone who you allow to access your data or our services. By using our services, the website, you and they irrevocably agree to these terms. If you do not like these terms or don't want to be bound, you can't use our services and the website. In particular, OUR SERVICES ARE PROVIDED SUBJECT TO CERTAIN DISCLAIMERS BY US AND UNDERTAKINGS BY YOU, INCLUDING AN INDEMNITY FROM YOU IF YOU BREACH THESE TERMS. EUROPEAN LAW AND ARBITRATION OF ANY DISPUTES APPLIES EXCLUSIVELY
3. We can change these terms at any time by providing you at least 30 days prior notice of the change, whether via our website, by sending you an email or via any messaging service we provide. Your continued use after that notice means that you agree to the changed terms. If you have paid for a subscription that is due to expire after that 30 day notice period and you do not wish to continue to use our services under the new terms, you may terminate your subscription before the new terms come into force. We will then (but not otherwise) refund the unexpired portion of your subscription payment within 30 days and close your account. For more information about refunds, recurring paid subscriptions and their termination, see the refund policy.
4. If you comply with these terms, then we grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide licence to access and use our services via the website and our API if applicable, in accordance with these terms and any plan you have subscribed for.
5. If you allow others to access your data (e.g. by giving them a link to, and a key to decrypt, that data), in addition to them accepting these terms, you are responsible for their actions and omissions while they are using our services and you agree to fully indemnify us for any claim, loss, damage, fine, costs (including our legal fees) and other liability if they breach any of these terms.
6. You must maintain copies of all data stored by you on our services. We do not make any guarantees that there will be no loss of data or the services will be bug free. You should download all data prior to termination of services.
7. Our service may automatically (without us viewing the file content) delete a file you upload, store, access or share where it determines that the file is an exact duplicate of a file already on our service (a process usually referred to as deduplication). In that case, the original file will be accessed by you and any other user and that file will be retained as long as any user has a right to access it under these terms. Any right of deletion that you exercise will not apply to a deduplicated file that is associated with another user.
8. We will store your data on our service subject to these terms and any plan you subscribe to. If you choose to stop using our services, you must download your data first because after that we may, if we wish, delete it. If we suspend or terminate our services to you because you have breached these terms, or someone you have given access to has breached these terms, during the term of that suspension we may, if we wish, delete your data immediately or deny you access to your data but keep it for evidential purposes. In circumstances where we cease providing our services for other reasons, we will, if we consider it appropriate, it is reasonably practicable and we are not prevented by law or likely to incur any liability in doing so, give you 30 days' notice to retrieve your data.
9. Once you have subscribed to a plan for our services (with payment having been made via the website or one of our related or affiliated entities, payment processors and resellers), you need to pay the fees (if any) for that plan (and any other taxes or duties). No matter which reseller or related or affiliated entity of CloudGenic Network you make payment to, your contract for services is with CloudGenic Network and is governed exclusively by these terms and our policies referenced in these terms. We can also change the fees for our services (other than those you have already contracted and paid for) at any time if we give you notice. In the absence of manifest error or other lawful error, you can't withhold payment or claim any set-off without getting our written agreement.
10. If at any time you do not make a payment to us when you are supposed to (including on termination), we can (and this doesn't affect any other rights we may have against you):
- suspend or terminate your use of the service and/or;
11. You must:

13. If you register with us, you will need to use a password in conjunction with your specific account email address. You need to make sure your password is secure, not used by you on other sites and confidential. Make sure you tell us straight away if you think or know someone else has used your password or there has been any other security breach. We will hold you responsible for anything done using your account and password. MAKE YOUR PASSWORD A STRONG ONE AND KEEP IT SECURE.

The open source code that we use, where we obtained it, and licences for that code, are all referenced on our website.
15. Without limiting any other provision of these terms, you are only permitted to directly and specifically use the API if you register at the developer registration page and agree that you may only publish or make available your application after we have approved it pursuant to our application approval process and licence agreement available on the API request page.
16. You own, or undertake that you are authorised to use, any intellectual property in any data you store on, use, download, upload, share, access, transmit or otherwise make available to or from, our systems or using our services. You grant us a worldwide, royalty-free licence to use, store, back-up, copy, transmit, distribute, communicate, modify and otherwise make available, your data, solely for the purposes of enabling you and those you give access to, to use our services and for any other purpose related to provision of the services to you and them.

18. We will respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with applicable law and are properly provided to us. If you believe that your content has been copied or used in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please use the DMCA form to request a takedown.
19. We reserve the right to remove data alleged to be infringing without prior notice, at our sole discretion, and without liability to you. In appropriate circumstances, we will also terminate your account if we consider you to be a repeat infringer.
20. We process all takedown notices based on good faith acceptance of the representations from the party submitting the takedown notice. We do not review the material before processing the takedown notice.
21. You may file a counter-notice if you believe that access to a file you have uploaded has been wrongly disabled because it was the subject of an incorrect takedown notice. You should only do so if you are confident that no other party owns copyright in the material, or you have rights to store the material and, if you are sharing it, that you have the right to do so.
22. Please understand that:
- When we receive your counter-notice, we pass it, including your address and other contact information, to the party who issued the original takedown notice. By submitting your counter-notice you authorise us to do so.
- Filing a counter-notification may lead to legal proceedings between you and the complaining party.
- If, when using this counter-notice process, you make a false or bad faith allegation or otherwise breach these terms or any of our policies and that causes us any loss, costs (including legal costs), damages or other liability, we reserve the right to claim for and recover from you that loss, those costs (including full legal costs on a solicitor-client basis), damages and other liability, by deduction from any balance in our account and the jurisdiction of the address in your counter-notice.
- We provide this counter-notice process voluntarily for the purposes of all applicable copyright takedown and counter-notice regimes, but, in doing so, we do not submit to any jurisdiction, law, tribunal or court other than those of European Law, as set out in these terms. We may amend, suspend or withdraw this counter-notice process at any time, provided that any counter-notices in train at that time shall continue to be processed.
23. By filing a counter-notice, you are deemed to have accepted the above terms. If you do not accept the above terms, do not file a counter-notice.
24. We will only accept a counter-notification directly from the user from whose account a folder or file has been disabled. Counter-notifications must be submitted from the email address associated with the CloudGenic Network account.
25. If we do not receive any further communication from or on behalf of the person who originally submitted the takedown notice, or any communication we do receive does not in our sole opinion adequately justify the original takedown notice, we may, but shall not be obliged to, reinstate the material in approximately 10-14 days provided we have no reason to believe that the material infringes copyright.
26. Nothing in this counter-notice section prejudices our right to remove or disable access to any material at any time, for any reason or no reason.
27. If you consider there has been some other infringement or breach of law, or of these terms, and wish to file a complaint, contact us at the relevant address on our contact page or email us at . We will generally require the same amount of detail as set out above for copyright infringement notices. See also our Takedown Guidance Policy.

You also will not use the website or our services for any purpose prohibited by United States, European Union or any other law, including, without limitation, the development, design, manufacture or production of missiles, nuclear, chemical or biological weapons.
33. If any provision of these terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect. If we do not enforce any right or provision of these terms or if we in any instance grant any concession or indulgence, that will not be deemed a waiver of such right or provision or obligate us to grant any concession or indulgence to anyone else.
34. We will not be liable by reason of any failure or delay in the performance of our obligations because of events beyond our reasonable control, which may include, without limitation, denial-of-service attacks, strikes, shortages, riots, insurrection, fires, flood, storm, explosions, acts of God, war, terrorism, governmental action, labour conditions, earthquakes, material shortages, extraordinary internet congestion or extraordinary connectivity issues or failure of a third party host, (each a "Force Majeure Event").
