NetLok™ Terms of Use

Effective March 12, 2016

1. AGREEMENT TO TERMS

These terms and conditions of use ("Terms of Use") cover your use and access to the services and this website located at www.NetLok.com ("Website") (such services and website, together, the "Services") provided by No Password, Inc., a California corporation doing business as NetLok™ ("NetLok™"). By using the Services, you agree to these Terms of Use. Please read them carefully. If you do not agree to these Terms of Use, do not use the Services.

You may be required to agree to additional terms and conditions in order to use certain Services. Those additional terms become part of these Terms of Use, if you use those Services. If there is a conflict between these Terms of Use and the terms applicable to a specific portion of the Services, the terms applicable to a specific portion of the Services shall control with respect to your use of that portion of the Services.

2. USING OUR SERVICES.

You may use the Services on a non-exclusive basis, solely in compliance with these Terms of Use and all applicable laws. You must follow any policies made available to you with the Services.

3. YOUR ACCOUNT

To access certain Services, you may be required to open a NetLok™ account (an "Account") by completing a registration form, accepting certain terms of service, providing an Email Address and one or more personal photos that will be encrypted into a "NetLok™ Photo". You may have either an Account created by you for your personal use (a "Personal Account"), an Account created in connection with a small group you become a member of (a "Family Account"), or an Account created in connection with your employer or other entity with whom your Account is associated (a "Company", and a "Company Account"), or all of the preceding. When opening your Account, you must provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as requested by the registration form, and maintain and promptly update your registration data to keep it true, accurate, current, and complete throughout the entire time that you maintain an Account.

4. NETLOK™ PHOTO IDS (UNIQUE IDS)

Upon opening your Account, we provide you with one encrypted photograph to use as your first NetLok™ Photo ID (a "Default NetLok™ Photo ID"). All Default Photo IDs are owned, controlled, and/or licensed by or to NetLok™, and are protected by applicable copyright laws. You may not use the Default NetLok™ Photo ID for any purpose except to the extent necessary to secure and access your Account with reasonable convenience, as provided and subject to these Terms of Use.

Additionally, upon opening your Account, we invite you to upload one or more of your personal photographs to replace the Default NetLok™ Photo ID and for use as an additional NetLok™ Photo ID. When you upload your personal photograph, we provide you with an encrypted version of the photograph to use as a NetLok™ Photo ID (the encrypted version, a "Custom NetLok™ Photo ID"). You understand that the Custom NetLok™ Photo ID that results from uploading and encrypting your personal photograph is a different file from your original photograph, and that, within these Terms of Use, the term "Custom NetLok™ Photo ID" refers not to your original photograph, but rather to the encrypted version, despite that the two versions look identical. By uploading your personal photograph to the Site, you authorize and license NetLok™ to encrypt the photograph to create the Custom NetLok™ Photo ID and use it in connection with the Services. You agree that (subject to your ownership of the underlying copyright in the photograph), NetLok™ owns the Customer NetLok™ Photo ID, and you will not use the resulting Custom NetLok™ Photo ID for any purpose except to the extent necessary to secure and access your NetLok Account in connection with the Services. In all events, you retain all other rights to your original photograph.

You may not download, distribute, display, or copy any NetLok™ Photo ID, whether a Default NetLok™ Photo ID or a Custom NetLok™ Photo ID, unless you have opened an Account and received the NetLok™ Photo ID directly from NetLok™. If you have opened an Account and received a Unique NetLok™ Photo ID directly from NetLok™, you may only use the NetLok™ Photo ID to the extent necessary to enable you to access and secure your NetLok™ Account with reasonable convenience, and for no other purpose.

5. ACCOUNT SECURITY

Only you may use your NetLok™ Account. You must keep your Account information including your Email Address and NetLok™ Photo IDs confidential, and may not authorize any third party to access or use the Services on your behalf unless NetLok authorizes in writing and provides an approved mechanism for such use. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account information. You understand that you risk compromising the confidentiality of your Account information, and the content stored and transmitted on your Account, if you share your Email Address, NetLok™ Photo IDs, or any of your personal photographs from which your Custom NetLok™ Photo IDs have been generated, on social media (such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn), the Internet, or elsewhere. You agree to notify NetLok™ immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account or your NetLok™ Photo IDs, or any other breach of security.

NetLok™ will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from any unauthorized use of your Accounts as a result of your failure to keep your Account information secure and confidential. You may be held liable for losses incurred by NetLok™ or any other user of or visitor to the Services due to someone else using the Email Address you use on the Universal Login page, NetLok™ Photo IDs, or Account as a result of your failing to keep your Account information secure and confidential.

If a third party, such as an employer or a school, gave you your Account, that party has certain rights to your Account and may: manage your Account; reset your NetLok™ Photo IDs; suspend or cancel your Account; view your Account's usage and profile data, including how and when your Account is used; and read or store content the party has shared with you in your Account.

6. OUR (NETLOK) CONTENT

Using the Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in the Services or the content contained on or provided through NetLok Services (such content, "Our Content"). Our Content includes, without limitation, any and all text, graphics, user interfaces, visual interfaces, photographs, Default NetLok™ Photo IDs, trademarks, logos, sounds, music, artwork, computer code, and similar content contained on and provided through the Services, including but not limited to the design, structure, selection, coordination, expression, "look and feel," and arrangement of such.

Our Content is owned, controlled, or licensed by or to NetLok™ and/or its licensors, and is protected by trade dress, copyright, patent, trademark, and trade secret laws and various other intellectual property rights and unfair competition laws. You may not use Our Content unless you obtain the necessary permissions from the content owner or are otherwise permitted by law.

Except as expressly provided in these Terms of Use, no part of Our Content may be copied, reproduced, republished, uploaded, posted, publicly displayed, encoded, translated, transmitted, or distributed in any way (including "mirroring") to any other computer, server, website, or other medium for publication or distribution or for any commercial enterprise, without our express prior written consent.

You may use information regarding the Services (such as data sheets, knowledge base articles, and similar materials) purposely made available by us for downloading from the Services, provided that you: (a) do not remove any proprietary notice language in all copies of such documents; (b) only use such information for your personal, non-commercial, informational purpose and do not copy or post such information on any networked computer or broadcast it in any media; (c) do not modify any such information; and (d) do not make any additional representations or warranties relating to such documents.

7. YOUR CONTENT

Some of the Services allow you to upload, submit, create, store, send, or receive content (such content, "Your Content"). You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in Your Content. What belongs to you remains yours. These Terms of Use give us no right to Your Content except for the limited rights that enable us to offer the Services, as expressed in these Terms of Use.

We need permission to do things like upload, host, back up, and share Your Content when you ask us to. Our Services also provide you with features like messaging those in your network and auditing access to Your Content. These and other features may require our systems to access, upload and download files, store, scan, copy, modify, distribute, publicly display, and otherwise use Your Content. You give us permission to do those things for the limited purpose of delivering the Services to you, and this permission extends to trusted third parties we work with.

We will not be liable for Your Content. By uploading Your Content, you warrant and represent that you own all right, title, and interest in all such material, or that you have obtained all rights and authorizations necessary from all parties having rights in such materials. You may not upload, share, or otherwise use in connection with the Services any content that violates someone else's intellectual property, privacy, or other rights; knowingly contains any virus, Trojan Horse, or any other type of malicious code; or otherwise violates the law. The provisions of this section are intended to implement this policy but are not intended to impose a contractual obligation on NetLok™ to undertake, or refrain from undertaking, any particular course of conduct. While we are not responsible for the content of the submissions, we reserve the right to reject or delete from the Services any of Your Content that we, in our sole discretion, deem violates these Terms of Use or our policies.

8. PRIVACY AND DATA SECURITY

We respect your privacy and permit you to control the treatment of your personal information. Our Privacy Policy applies to use of the Services. To view our Privacy Policy, click here.

When we solicit and collect personal information from you, when we store or transmit your personal information for administrative purposes, and when you store and transmit your personal information using and within our secure "NetLokr" service, we protect it using the our state-of-the-art, digital security and encryption technologies (including trade secret technologies), using encryption including Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), and also with our physical systems subject to limited access and housed in undisclosed and secured facilities.

We may take additional protective measures to protect your content, information, and communications stored or transmitted by means of the Services. Our obligations, if any, with regard to those protective measures are governed solely by the agreements pursuant to which the specific Services are provided, and nothing on this Website should be construed to alter such agreements.

By using the Services, you acknowledge and agree that Internet transmissions are never completely private or secure, because technology and government policies are constantly changing and the Company cannot anticipate all technology changes that would allow a third party to bypass its security efforts. You understand that there always exists a risk that a message or information you send to or through the Services could be read or intercepted by another, even if there is a special notice that a particular transmission (for example, credit card information) is encrypted.

9. LINKS TO OTHER SITES

The Services may contain links to independent third-party websites. Such linked websites are provided solely as a convenience to our visitors. Such linked websites are not under our control, and we are not responsible for and do not endorse their content, including any information or materials contained on such those websites. You will need to make your own independent judgment regarding your interaction with these linked sites, including, but not limited to whether you want to visit those sites.

10. LINKING TO THIS SITE

You may create links to the Services from other websites, provided that, without separate written permission, you do not use any NetLok™ logo to create the link and do not present the link to the Services in a manner that it is associated with advertising or appears to be an endorsement by NetLok™ of any organization, product, or service. You agree that the link will not appear on a website that a reasonable person may consider obscene, defamatory, harassing, grossly offensive, illegal, or malicious.

11. IMPERMISSIBLE USES OF OUR SERVICES

You may not use any "deep-link," "page-scrape," "robot," "spider," or other automatic device, program, algorithm, or methodology, or any similar or equivalent manual process, to (or attempt to) access, acquire, copy, or monitor any portion of the Services, or in any way reproduce or circumvent the navigational structure or presentation of the Services, to obtain or attempt to obtain any materials, documents, or information through any means not purposely made available through the Services. We reserve the right to bar any such activity.

You may not attempt to gain unauthorized access to any portion or feature of the Services, or any other systems or networks connected to the Services or to any of our servers, by hacking, password "mining," or any other illegitimate or illegal means.

You may not reverse look-up, trace, or seek to trace any information on any other user of or visitor to the Services, or any other NetLok™ customer, including any NetLok™ Account not owned by you, to its source. You may not exploit any of the Services, or information made available or offered by or through the Services, in any way where the purpose is to reveal personal identification or information other than your own information or information intentionally provided to you by or through the Services.

You agree that you will not take any action that imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on the infrastructure of the Services, our systems or networks, or any other systems or networks connected to the Services. You agree not to use any device, software, or routine to interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Services or any transaction being conducted through the Services, or with any other person's use of the Services.

You assume total responsibility for your use of the Services. Your sole remedy against NetLok™ for dissatisfaction with the Services is to stop using the Services. This limitation of relief is a part of the bargain between the parties.

The above disclaimer applies to any damages, liability, or injuries caused by any failure of performance, error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation or transmission, computer virus, communication line failure, theft, or destruction of or unauthorized access to, alteration of, or use, whether for breach of contract, tort, negligence, or any other cause of action.

We may disclose any information we have about you, including your identity and the content stored in or transmitted through your NetLok™ Account, if and to the extent we determine that such disclosure is necessary in connection with any investigation or complaint regarding your use of the Services, or to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, or the rights or property of visitors to or users of the Services, including NetLok™ customers. We reserve the right at all times to disclose any information that we deem necessary to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request.

You also agree that any violation by you of these Terms of Use will constitute an unlawful and unfair business practice, and will cause irreparable harm to NetLok™, for which monetary damages would be inadequate, and you consent to NetLok™ obtaining any injunctive or equitable relief that we deem necessary or appropriate in such circumstances. These remedies are in addition to any other remedies we may have at law or in equity.

If the dispute cannot be resolved through mediation, then the parties shall enter confidential binding arbitration conducted under the rules of the American Arbitration Assoication.

17. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED

We administer and operate the Services from a location in the United States, which we do not disclose for security purposes. Although the Services may be accessed worldwide, not all of the Services are available to all persons or in all geographic locations, or appropriate or available for use outside the United States. We reserve the right to limit, in our sole discretion, the provision and quantity of any feature, product, or service of the Services to any person or geographic area. Any offer for any feature, product, or service made on or through the Services is void where prohibited.

18. MISCELLANEOUS

If any of the provisions of these Terms of Use are held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be void or unenforceable, such provisions shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary and replaced with a valid provision that best embodies the intent of these Terms of Use, so that these Terms of Use shall remain in full force and effect. These Terms of Use, including other agreements relating to Services, if any, together constitute the entire agreement between you and NetLok™ with regard to your use of the Services, and any and all other written or oral agreements or understandings previously existing between you and NetLok™ with respect to such use are hereby superseded and cancelled.
