Virgil Security, Inc. ("Virgil", or "we" and its derivatives), offers a suite of
software components and associated services

and provenance of data, devices and identities across digital platforms into their software
products. We also offer mobile applications and certain "widgets" that can be directly
downloaded by end users for use on their computing devices. Our services rely on open-source
cryptography libraries, plug-and-play APIs for almost every standard development language,
and seamless key management to secure your digital world. In order to use our software,

with your personal or internal business use of the Services. Unless otherwise specified
in a separate license expressly superseding these Terms, your right to use any element
of the Services is subject to the Terms. A "User" is anyone who accesses the Services
and includes both developers who incorporate certain Services or Software into their offerings
and end users who download and use Apps and Widgets. You and User are used interchangeably
throughout these Terms.
App License. Subject to your compliance with the Terms, Virgil grants you a limited,
non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to download,
install and use a copy of an App on a single mobile device or computer that you own

purposes. Furthermore, with respect to any App accessed through or downloaded from
the Apple App Store (an

license to use the Widget on the computer that you own solely for the purpose of

without our prior written consent, and nothing in the Terms shall be deemed to grant
you any right, title or interest in the Widget. Use of Widgets in Developer Products
is governed by Section 2.3.

users is subject to this Section 2.3 and these Terms, unless there is a separate

any new releases); or (b) delivery, correction or updating of documentation. Except

Software is prohibited, including any copying or redistribution of the Software to
any other server or location, or redistribution or use on a service bureau basis.
If there is any conflict between the Terms and the license agreement, the license
agreement will take precedence in relation to that Software (except as provided in
the following sentence). If the Software is a pre-release version, then, notwithstanding
anything to the contrary included within an accompanying license agreement, you are
not permitted to use or otherwise rely on the Software for any commercial or production
purposes. Subject to your compliance with the Terms, Virgil grants you a non-assignable,
non-transferable, non-sublicensable (except as explicitly required to receive the

to the Services and Software available on the site.

Third-Party Marketplaces.The availability of the Apps and Widgets (and, if applicable,
any other Software that is available from third parties) is dependent on the third
party from whom you received the license for such App, Widget or other Software,
e.g., the Apple Third-Party Marketplace or Google Play (each, a
"Third-Party Marketplace"). You acknowledge that these Terms are between you
and Virgil and not with the Third-Party Marketplace. Virgil, not the Third-Party
Marketplace, is solely responsible for the App, Widget, or other Software obtained
from the Third-Party Marketplace, including, as applicable, its content, maintenance,
support services, and warranty, and addressing any related claims (e.g., product
liability, legal compliance or intellectual property infringement). In order to use
the App, Widget or Software, you must have access to a network, and you agree to
pay all fees associated with such access. You also agree to pay all fees (if any)

are third-party beneficiaries of these Terms and will have the right to enforce them.
Third-Party Websites, Applications & Ads. The Services may contain links to third-party
websites, applications, and advertisements (collectively,
"Third-Party Material"). When you click on a link to Third-Party Material, we
are not required to provide notice that you are leaving the Services. We do not review
or endorse, nor are we responsible in any way, for Third-Party Material. You use
Third-Party Material links at your own risk and should review applicable terms and
policies before proceeding with any transaction with any third party.
Fees and Payment.
Trial Accounts. We may offer free trials or other promotions that provide a Registered
User with limited access to the Services within a specified time (a
"Trial Account"). Users with Trial Accounts may access only certain features
of the Services and are limited in the number of keys and requests (or as we otherwise
determine) that they may make via the Services. At the end of the trial period, your
Trial Account will expire and any further use of the Services is prohibited unless
you pay the applicable Subscription Fee.
Service Subscription Fees. Expanded use and advanced features of the Services
are provided on a subscription basis (a
"Services Subscription"). The fees for Services Subscriptions (each, a
"Subscription Fee") are due in advance, with the initial payment due when you
add a Services Subscription to your Account (each such time, a
"Service Commencement Date"). Services Subscriptions are not valid until we accept
your order by a confirmatory e-mail, SMS/MMS message, or other appropriate means
Payment. All Subscription Fees and other payments related to your Account will
be made in accordance with the charges and billing terms in effect when such payment
is due. You must provide us with a valid credit card or online transaction account
(i.e., Paypal) that we accept ("Payment Provider"), prior to receiving any paid Services.
You will promptly
notify us of any change to your payment information. Your Payment Provider agreement,
and not these Terms, govern your use of the designated credit card or online transaction
account. By providing your payment information, you agree that we may invoice you
for all fees and charges when they become due to us without additional notice or
consent. We may change our charges and billing practices at any time, either by posting
notice of such change on the site or notifying you via email, provided that any pre-paid
fees for Services not yet completed will not be affected by such change.
- Automatic Renewal and Cancellation.
(a) Services Subscriptions will automatically renew at the rates then in effect until
cancelled as set forth in Section 7.4(b). By subscribing, you authorize us
to charge your Payment Provider at the beginning of any subscription period. Upon
renewal of your subscription, if we do not receive payment from your Payment Provider,
(i) you will pay all amounts due on your Account upon demand, and/or (ii) we may
either terminate or suspend your subscription and continue to attempt to charge your
Payment Provider until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, your Services
Subscription will be re-activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, the day
payment was received will be considered your new Services Commencement Date).
(b) Services Subscriptions may be cancelled at any time by going to the "Change /
Cancel Account" page of your "Account Settings" page or by contacting us via email
[email protected]. Monthly Services
Subscriptions may be cancelled
at any time. Annual Services Subscriptions will automatically renew for an additional
year at the then-current price for the selected Services unless cancelled at least
thirty (30) days prior to the anniversary of the applicable Service Commencement
Date. Services Subscriptions for a term that is neither monthly or annual will
automatically renew for additional periods of the same duration, unless cancelled
at least thirty (30) days prior to end of the then-current subscription. Upon
cancellation we will not charge you for any additional Subscription Fees for the
Sales Tax. "Sales Tax" means any sales or use tax, and any equivalent tax measured
by sales proceeds that we are required to pass through to our customers. All fees
are net of any applicable Sales Tax. Sales Tax is automatically calculated and added
to all orders where applicable.
Withholding Taxes. All payments for the Services will be made free and clear
of, and without reduction for, any withholding taxes. Any such taxes imposed on payments
of fees to us will be your sole responsibility. Upon our request, you will provide
us with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or other such
evidence that you have paid all applicable taxes.
Payment Disputes. You must notify us in writing at
[email protected] within seven (7) days after
receiving your Payment
Provider statement, if you dispute any of our charges on that statement or such dispute
will be deemed waived.
Suspension of Service. If you fail to pay undisputed amounts in accordance with
these Terms, we may, in addition to any of our other rights or remedies, suspend
your access to the Service, without liability, until such amounts are paid in full.
Third-Party Provider. We use Stripe as the third party service provider for payment
services (e.g., card acceptance, merchant settlement, and related services). By paying
https://stripe.com/us/privacy/ and hereby consent and
authorize us and Stripe
to share any information and payment instructions you provide with Third Party Service
Provider(s) to the minimum extent required to complete your transactions.
Indemnification and Liability
Indemnification. You will indemnify, defend and hold us, our affiliates, if any,
and our officers, directors, employees and agents (the
"Indemnified Parties") harmless from any claims, demands, actions, costs, liabilities,
losses and damages of any kind (including attorney's fees) resulting from your use,
misuse or abuse of the Services. You will reasonably cooperate in our defense of
any claim. We may, at our own expense, assume the exclusive defense and control of
any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, and you will not settle any
matter without our written consent. This provision does not apply to any unconscionable
commercial practice or for fraud, deception, false promise, misrepresentation or
concealment, suppression or omission of any material fact by any Indemnified Party
in connection with the Services.
Disclaimer. You acknowledge that you are using the Services at your own risk.
The Services are provided "as is," and to the fullest extent permitted by law, Virgil
expressly disclaims any warranties, express and implied, including any warranties
of accuracy, completeness or reliability, title, merchantability or fitness for a
particular purpose. Virgil does not represent or warrant that access to the Services

consequential or punitive damages arising out of these terms, your access to or inability
to access the Services, including for viruses alleged to have been obtained from
the Services, your use of or reliance on the Services or materials available through
third-party sites linked to site, regardless of the type of claim or the nature of
the cause of action, even if advised of the possibility of such damages. Under no
circumstances will we be liable to you for more than one hundred dollars ($100.00).
Any cause of action related to the terms or services must commence within one (1)
year after it accrues or such cause of action will be permanently barred.
(b) The foregoing limitations of liability apply to the fullest extent allowed
by law, provided, however, that Virgil does not in any way seek to exclude or limit
liability for (i) death or personal injury caused by Virgil's negligence; (ii) fraud
or fraudulent misrepresentation; or (iii) any other liability that cannot be excluded
or limited by applicable law.
User Content. Except for our obligations to protect your personal data as set
deletion, mis-delivery or failure to store any content or personalization settings.
End User Data. Virgil does not have the ability to decrypt end users' private
keys and thus cannot reveal that information either inadvertently or by compulsion.
As a result, if an end user loses access to their private key, Virgil is not able
to decrypt their stored private key, and the end user may, therefore, lose access
to their data. accordingly, Virgil shall have no liability to you or end users for
the loss of access to end-user data.
Virgil Defined. For purposes of this Section 7 only, "Virgil" includes our affiliates
and subsidiaries, if any, and our third-party services providers, suppliers, and
Term and Termination.
Term. These Terms take effect on the earlier of the date when you accept them
(as described in the preamble), or the date you first used the Services, and remain
in effect for so long as you use the Services.
Termination by Us. If timely payment cannot be charged to your Payment Provider
for any reason, if you have materially breached any provision of the Terms, or if
we are required to do so by law (e.g., where the provision of the Services becomes
unlawful), we may, immediately and without notice, suspend or terminate any Services
provided to you. All terminations for cause will be made in our sole discretion and
we will not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your Account
for cause, except that, where we terminate the Services where required to do so by
law, we will refund any prepaid Subscription Fees for the remainder of the term then
in effect as of the date of termination.
Termination by You. If you want to cancel a Services Subscription for one (1)
or more Developer Products, or terminate your Account entirely, you may do so by
going to the "Change / Cancel Account" page of your "Account Settings" page or by
contacting us via email at
[email protected]. Unless otherwise instructed,
cancellation of a Services
Subscription for one (1) or more of Developer Products will not affect any other
Services Subscriptions, and will not terminate your Account entirely.
Effect of Termination. Termination or cancellation of any Services Subscription
for one (1) or more of Developer Product removes access to the applicable Service
from the Developer Product, but will not affect any other Services Subscription(s)
(if applicable) then in effect. Termination of your Account will remove access to
all Services, including those accessible to Trial Accounts, and we may also delete
your password, payment information and other personal information associated with
your Account. Upon termination of any Services Subscription, your access to the relevant
Services will terminate at the end of the then-current term (unless terminated by
us for cause, in which case access will terminate immediately) and we will cease
performing any functions related to the Services for your Account. We will have no
liability for the consequences of any suspension or termination of your Account pursuant
to these Terms, including for deletion of your content. All provisions of the Terms
which by their nature should survive termination of the Services, including ownership
provisions, indemnification obligations, warranty disclaimers, and limitation of
liability, will do so.
No Subsequent Registration. If we terminate your Account for your violation of
the Terms, you will not attempt to re-register with or access the Services through
creation of a new Account or otherwise. If you violate the immediately preceding
sentence, we may, in our sole discretion, immediately take any corrective actions
we deem appropriate without advance notice to you.
Jurisdiction, Governing Law, and Dispute Resolution. These Terms, for all purposes,
will be governed and interpreted according to the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia
without giving effect to its conflicts of laws provisions that would require a different

and confidential arbitration conducted before one commercial arbitrator from the
American Arbitration Association (AAA) with substantial experience in resolving commercial
and governed by the AAA's Commercial Arbitration Rules and, if the arbitrator deems
them applicable, the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes
Rules and Procedures).
(a) You are giving up your right to go to court for any dispute arising under
these Terms except for matters that may be taken to small claims court. Your rights
will be determined by a neutral arbitrator and not a judge or jury. You are entitled
to a fair hearing, but the arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited than
rules applicable in court. Arbitrator decisions are as enforceable as any court order
and are subject to very limited review by a court.
(b) Any claims brought by either party must be brought in the parties' individual
capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative
proceeding, and the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims,
may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding,
and may not award class-wide relief.
(c) The arbitration award will be final and binding upon the parties without
appeal or review except as permitted by Commonwealth of Virginia law or United States
(d) Notwithstanding the foregoing (i) either party may bring an individual action
in small claims court, and (ii) claims of (A) defamation, (B) violation of the Computer
Fraud and Abuse Act, or (C) infringement or misappropriation of the other party's
intellectual property rights may be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts
located in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The parties agree to submit to the exclusive
personal jurisdiction of the courts located within the Commonwealth of Virginia for
such purpose. A request for equitable relief will not be deemed a waiver of the right
With the exception of Section 9.1(b), if any part of Section 9.1 is deemed to be invalid
or unenforceable for any reason then the balance of Section 9.1 will remain in effect.
If, however, Section 9.1 (b) is found to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason,
then Section 9.1 will be null and void, neither party will be entitled to arbitration,
and any claims relating to the Terms or Services will be exclusively brought in state
or federal court in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Electronic Communications and Notice. You consent to receive operational communications
from us electronically, including via email, text (if you have provided your cell
phone number in connection with the Services) or our posting of notices on the site.

legal effect should be sent to 9296 Sumner Lake Blvd., Manassas, VA 20110 by personal
delivery, certified mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested), or a commercial
courier requiring signature for delivery, and will be effective on receipt or when
delivery is refused.
