Our company’s overriding policy is to collect as little user information as possible to ensure a completely private and anonymous user experience when using the Service. We also have no technical means to access your encrypted message contents.
Service's user data collection is limited to the following:
- Visiting our website: We employ a local installation of an analytics tool, on the home page only. Analytics tool is not employed in the nthLink software. Your IP address in our server logs is hashed and cannot be used to trace back to you.
- Software usage: We do not require ANY personal information to use the nthLink software and access the nthLink Servers.
- Communicating with nthLink: Your communications with the Company, such as support requests, bug reports, or feature requests may be saved by our staff.
We do not have any advertising on our site. Any data that we do have will never be shared except under the circumstances described below in Data Disclosure. We do NOT do any analysis on the limited data we do possess.
We will only disclose the limited user data we possess if we receive notice from the United States of America government regarding a court order that is coming from the authorities we are legally obligated to recognize. While we may comply with electronically delivered notices (see exceptions below), the disclosed data can only be used in court after we have received an original copy of the court order by registered post or in person, and provide a formal response.
nthLink may from time to time, contest court orders if there is a public interest in doing so. In such situations, the Company will not comply with the court order until all legal or other remedies have been exhausted. Therefore, not all court orders will lead to data disclosure.
This Agreement shall be governed in all respects by the substantive laws of the State of Virginia and the United States of America. Any controversy, claim, or dispute arising out of or relating to the Agreement shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the competent courts of the State of Virginia, USA.
