Service provision is provided under 'Fair use'. PrivateRelay reserves the right to limit service where it deems that the Client has exceed this policy of fair use.

Where data is sent or received externally to / from third party services, PrivateRelay will also attempt to use encrypted connections on these links, where the external system has support for that encryption.

Limited Liability

Under no circumstances, including negligence, shall PrivateRelay be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages that result from the use, or inability to use, the PrivateRelay service, or that result from mistakes, omissions, hacking, interruptions, deletion of files or email, errors, defects, bugs, delays in operation, or transmission or any failure of performance, whether or not limited to acts of God, communication failure, theft, destruction or unauthorised access to PrivateRelay records, programs or services.

Notwithstanding the above, PrivateRelay specifically denies any responsibilities for any damages arising as a consequence of non-accessibility of its servers. Client's exclusive remedies for all damages, losses and causes of actions whether in contract, tort including negligence or otherwise, shall not exceed the aggregate amount which Client paid during the term of this contract.

PrivateRelay will make every effort to keep Client data secure on their internal own networks. Client understands that data sent externally may not be relayed in encrypted format where the external system may not support it.

Accounts which remain unpaid at their renewal date will be suspended, but remain on our servers for ninety days. If the account has not been renewed after that time the account will be deleted.
