Legal Stuff

This is the kind of stuff that makes us cringe, but our legal team tells us we are required to have it.  As a legitimate business you know we have to have this stuff to operate, but if you follow basic security best practices and our suggested ways to remain anonymous it shouldn't impact many of you.

 

Acceptable Use Policy ("AUP")

Last updated: (August 2018)

We operate www.discreet.email and corresponding email messaging services (the "Services"). You shall not use the Services to violate any applicable laws, rules, or regulations issued or promulgated by any competent government authority. Without limiting the foregoing, you shall not use the Services for, or in connection with, the following: (a) theft or infringement of copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, or other types of intellectual property or proprietary information; (b) fraud, forgery, or theft or misappropriation of funds, credit cards, or personal information; (c) export, re-export, or transfer of restricted software, algorithms, or other data in violation of applicable export control laws; (d) deceptive practices such as posing as another service for the purposes of phishing or pharming; (e) distributing any materials of a threatening or harmful nature, including, without limitation, threats of death or physical harm, or materials that are malicious, harassing, libelous, defamatory, which harm our reputation, or which facilitate extortion; or (f) distributing any offensive materials, including, without limitation, materials that are obscene, constitute illegal pornography, indecent, or hateful and materials which promote illegal gambling or discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age.

We do not monitor the messaging platform for AUP violations, but do respond to abuse complaints. If you become aware of any violation of this AUP you shall promptly report such violation to abuse@discreet.email.

Discreet.Email, in its sole reasonable discretion, will determine whether conduct fails to conform to the terms and conditions of this AUP. If your conduct fails to conform to the terms and conditions of this AUP in a fashion that negatively impacts Discreet.Email or its systems or networks, or such that continued provision of the Services violates the law, Discreet.Email may immediately suspend your Services and/or any order. Discreet.Email may further, in its sole discretion, terminate the Services and/or any order if the conduct giving rise to the suspension is either i) willful or malicious, or ii) if not willful or malicious, not cured within a reasonable period of time after notice of the suspension is provided.
