Passportal User Agreement
This User Agreement ("Agreement") is entered between you (the "User" "you" or "your") and
Passportal Inc. of Calgary, Alberta Canada ( "Passportal" or "we"), to govern your use of our online
password management services, as described below, when you register to become a User at Passportal
(the "Site"). You acknowledge and hereby agree with the following terms and conditions (the "Terms"):
Description of Service
Passportal offers an innovative internet-based service that uses highly secured cryptographic
technologies to organize, manage, store and share confidential data and information. When you sign up
for our Service, you will be prompted to create a password protected account (the "Account") where
you can enter and save confidential data and information on our servers (the "Entries"). There is no
initial cost to become a registered User and have access to the Service, however costs will be incurred
dependent on the size of your organization. You will be assigned a user identification code ("User ID") to
access your Account. Entries are transmitted always and exclusively in encrypted form. The process of
encrypting, decrypting and rendering Entries intelligible on receipt takes place on your own local
computer, via browser, using a secret code only known to you (the "Organization Passphrase"). As such,
we can NEVER access nor decipher your Entries. We do not maintain a copy of your Organization
Passphrase and cannot recover it if it is lost or forgotten.
