Terms of Service

Terms of Service

These are our no-nonsense terms of service, avoiding the use of lengthy legalese wording as much as possible. By using any software or services provided here, you have entered the following agreement with Axantum Software AB.

GPL Open Source Software

Our GNU General Public License open source software is free and for that software the terms of the GPL Version 3 or later are valid. In some cases we do ask that you pay for our pre-built and tested binaries. What you pay for is just the actual download of the pre-built software, it's not a license to use the software. It's a download subscription, and it's not actcually a license for the software, since the software is free and already licensed under GPL. It's just a grant for the download of our build. Without having a valid license, the pre-built downloaded software may run with some restrictions. Once you have the download subscription, no more restrictions and you're welcome to download any updates published during the validity of the subscription.

A downloaded build will run "forever" without restrictions regardless of the download subscription validity. The subscription limits the builds to have been built during the validity period only, independently of when the download was made, or what the current date is.

Since the free software is really free under the terms of the GPL license, you are always welcome to download the source code from https://github.com, and build it yourself with your own tooling without any cost whatsoever except the value of your own hardware, software, time and patience.

If an error is discovered in the free GPL open source software and brought to our attention, we may attempt to correct it, or include a fix provided by a user, at a time of our convenience.

The GPL license is included in the software and is also available at the GNU Free Software Foundation website.

GPL open source software requiring a download subscription for our builds include Xecrets File Command Line [Beta].

Proprietary Closed Source Software

We also offer software that is not open source, that does require an actual license to use. If that software uses any of the GPL software, the appropriate download subscription is of course included.

While we have spent a lot of time and effort ensuring that the licensed software actually does work, and it won't cause any data loss, we offer no such actual warranty or guarantee to the extent allowed by applicable law. By the very nature of encryption software, such software always carries with a risk of data loss if the password is forgotten, lost or otherwise becomes unknown. It is your responsibility as a user to always ensure adequate backups and other safety measures to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of your data, and we will never accept any responsibility whatsoever for data loss or other damages, regardless of the perceived cause.

You use the software entirely at your own risk, and we will not assume any responsibility for any loss of data, time, money or similar directly or indirectly as a result of using it.

If an error is discovered in the licensed software and brought to our attention, we will attempt to correct it as fast as reasonable considering also the nature of the error, but we do not promise to do so within any particular time frame.

Proprietary closed source software requiring a license subscription to use include Xecrets File Ez [Beta].

Limitations without subscription

For both Xecrets File Command Line [Beta] and Xecrets File Ez [Beta], the only restriction when running without a valid subscription is the size of files that can be encrypted, which is limited to 1 MB. You can always decrypt previously encrypted files as long as you know the password, regardless of having a valid subscription or not.

Subscription License Validity

A license for Xecrets File Ez [Beta] is valid for a single physical person on any number of computers. A download subscription for Xecrets File Command Line [Beta] is valid for all use within the organization, or by the physical person, purchasing it.

Trials and Refunds

If you sign up for a subscription a full unlimited trial for 7 days is included, and you can always cancel within the 7 day period and then you will not be charged anything. If would like a refund, we will do so with no questions asked. Within reason of course... Please just contact support, we'd appreciate if you let us know why you want the refund, but you don't have to provide a reason.

Applicable Law

This agreement shall be interpreted in accordance with the laws of Sweden. Any dispute in connection with this agreement shall be settled by the Stockholm District Court ("Stockholms tingsrätt").

If any part of this agreement is unclear, it shall be interpreted in a best effort to approach the apparent intention, and always in favor of Axantum Software AB. If any part is determined to be invalid, the rest of the agreement shall still hold.
