Terms of Service
Terms of Service
Please carefully read the following Terms of Service before registering for and using the IDrive® Cloud Service.
If you are registering for the Service on behalf of an organization, you are agreeing to these Terms for that organization and promising that you have the authority to bind that organization to these Terms. In that case, "you" and "your" will refer to that organization.
1. Your Account
You agree to provide us with accurate and complete information when you create an IDrive® Cloud Account (your "Account"). In order to prevent unauthorized access to your Account, you agree to keep your password and other Account details confidential and not share them with anyone else.
You, as the Account holder, are solely responsible for access to, content in or sharing and use of your Account. We are not liable for any loss or damage arising from any access to, content in, or sharing and use of your Account. If you believe there has been unauthorized access to your Account, you must notify firstname.lastname@example.org immediately.
2. Conditions of Use
By using the Services, you agree that you:
(a) are solely responsible for obtaining sufficient rights to the content of all data and files stored by you on IDrive servers;
(b) will not violate, or encourage or facilitate the violation of, any aspect of our Acceptable Use Policy;
(c) will use third-party content at your election and these third-party content will be governed by this Agreement and, if applicable, separate terms and conditions accompanying such third-party content.
If there is suspicion that an account is being used for storage and distribution of any illegal material such as copyrighted content, we reserve the right to examine the content of the online storage account. We may also access the account and data for support related activities. We normally do not review, inspect, edit or monitor any content, data or files stored by you or any other user of the Service. We reserve the right to refuse, remove or disable access to any data or files stored on our servers with immediate effect that we determine may be illegal, may violate these Terms, may violate the rights of any third party or otherwise may be reasonably objectionable.
3. Registration Information / Privacy
Automatic Renewal - Paid Plans
In exchange for use of the Services, you authorize a recurring monthly charge to your credit card. The recurring charge will be locked at the published standard plan that is chosen at the time of sign-up or to a customized quote provided for your specific use. You also agree that the charges based on storage used in the previous month will be paid in full. Please note that we may automatically receive updated credit card information from our merchants from time to time in cases where your account is issued a new card number or your credit card expires. However, we still advise you update your card manually from your account screen when changes to your account information occur. We need a credit card on file while the account is active.
If we are unable to execute any applicable charges due to credit card denial or for any other reason, you will be notified via email. In case of non-action by the user, the account may be cancelled. We may delay Account cancellation related to non-payment for the Services and provide a grace period of up to sixty (60) days from the due date to allow for the customer to arrange payment. If the account is cancelled for any reason, user data and its backups will be removed from our storage servers.
You’re responsible for all applicable taxes, and we’ll charge tax when required to do so. IDrive can rely on the name and address you provide to IDrive as being the place of supply for sales tax, income tax, and VAT purposes.
Your right to raise a billing discrepancy and any associated recovery is waived unless reported to us by calling our customer support line or emailing us at email@example.com within sixty (60) calendar days after such discrepancy is charged to your credit card.
Cancellation & Refunds
You must cancel your Account before it renews each month in order to avoid a charge for the next month's fees to your credit card. Please note on the day of the cancellation, the credit card will be charged for the storage usage till midnight of the previous day, UTC.
In case you do not renew your account for 30 days, the account will be cancelled. Please note that all of your data will be deleted when your account is terminated after 60 days from the date when the account was cancelled.
On signing up with the Services, a free trial account (Free Account) of 30 days is created. We reserve the right to terminate Free Accounts at any time, with or without notice. Without limiting the foregoing, if a Free Account is inactive for ninety (90) days, then we reserve the right to terminate the Free Account without providing additional notice. An inactive account is an account where no login has occurred either automatically or manually for a specified period of time.
You are solely responsible for any consequences arising out of your failure to maintain the confidentiality of your Account password and/or encryption password. You will notify us of any unauthorized use or breach in security of your Account immediately after you learn of such unauthorized access or use. We advise frequent changes to the Account password for better security. The automated forget password option works on the assumption that only the account holder has access to the email address on record. In case the user does not have access to the email address, other means of verification may be used including billing/credit card information to verify identity.
We endeavor to restrict access to the data and files you store or retrieve from your Account, to persons you have authorized to access your Account. However, no password-protected system of data storage and retrieval can be made entirely impenetrable. Accordingly, you hereby acknowledge that it may be possible for an unauthorized third party to access, view, copy, modify and distribute the data and files you store in your Account.
6. Use of IP Addresses
We may collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and/or to audit the use of our site. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our policies, Terms, or to protect our service, site, customers, or others. Some services, such as user logs and registration emails, may also display IP addresses.
