+Terms Of Service
+Last Updated: 07.09.2021
+Welcome! Anastasis SARL (“we,” “our,” or “us”) provides a distributed
+privacy-preserving backup and recovery service for key material
+through our Internet presence (collectively the “Services”). Before
+using our Services, please read the Terms of Service (the “Terms” or
+the “Agreement”) carefully.
+This section provides a brief summary of the highlights of this
+Agreement. Please note that when you accept this Agreement, you are
+accepting all of the terms and conditions and not just this section.
+We and possibly other third parties provide Internet services which
+interact with the Anastasis key backup and recovery application. When
+using an application to interact with our Services, you are agreeing
+to our Terms, so please read carefully.
+ * You are responsible for selecting authentication methods and
+ policies that are adequate to protect your key material. Any
+ losses arising from you not being able to satisfy the selected
+ authentication challenges or third parties being able
+ successfully pass the challenges are your problem.
+ * We will store your encrypted key shares and disclose them upon
+ successful authentication to the best of our ability within the
+ limitations of the law and our implementation. Our liability will
+ be limited to the liability limit exposed in the protocol.
+ * For our Services, we may charge various fees. The specific fee
+ structure is provided based on the Anastasis protocol and should
+ be shown to you when you use an application to interact with our
+ services. You agree and understand that the Anastasis protocol
+ allows for the fee structure to change.
+ * You agree to not intentionally overwhelm our systems with
+ requests and follow responsible disclosure if you find security
+ issues in our services.
+ * We cannot be held accountable for our Services not being
+ available due to circumstances beyond our control. If we modify
+ or terminate our services, we will announce this and ensure that
+ you can recover your key material for at least one year before we
+ completely terminate the Service.
+These terms outline approved uses of our Services. If you have any
+questions or comments related to this Agreement, please send us a
+message to If you do not agree to this Agreement,
+you must not use our Services.
+How you accept this policy
+By using our API (typically via an Anastasis-enabled application), you
+acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agreed to these Terms.
+We reserve the right to change these Terms at any time. If you
+disagree with the change, you must simply stop using our APIs. Your
+continued use of our Services following any such change will signify
+your acceptance to be bound by the then current Terms. Please check
+the effective date above to determine if there have been any changes
+since you have last reviewed these Terms.
+We will store your encrypted key shares (and the associated encrypted
+recovery policy document) to the best of our ability and within the
+limitations of the implementation. We will disclose the key shares
+only after the specific authentication challenge has been passed. We
+will rate-limit the use of the authentication APIs to limit brute-
+force attacks.
+We are not guaranteeing that the authentication procedures are
+effective. Other parties may be able to intercept authentication
+messages, or you may not be able to receive these messages anymore.
+You are responsible for choosing safe authentication methods with
+sufficient security.
+When using our Services, you agree to not take any action that
+intentionally imposes an unreasonable load on our infrastructure. If
+you find security problems in our Services, you agree to first report
+them to and grant us the right to publish your
+report. We warrant that we will ourselves publicly disclose any issues
+reported within 1 month, and that we will not prosecute anyone
+reporting security issues if they did not exploit the issue beyond a
+proof-of-concept, and followed the above responsible disclosure
+You agree to pay the fees for backup and recovery operations ("Fees")
+as defined by us, which we may change from time to time. Your
+Anastasis client should obtain and display applicable fees during
+backup and recovery.
+To be eligible to use our Services, you must be able to form legally
+binding contracts or have the permission of your legal guardian. By
+using our Services, you represent and warrant that you meet all
+eligibility requirements that we outline in these Terms.

+contract, or delegate any of our obligations under these Terms.
