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. 


By registering as a User, you agree to be subject to the following conditions and limitations on use, and also make the following representations:

  • You will use the Service subject to the Terms and Conditions of Use that are currently published on our Site including all revisions thereto as the same may be published on the Site;
  • You will not use the Service to handle, in any way or form, any information concerning public health and safety or any type of data which loss, theft, destruction or inaccessibility, even if only temporary or partial, could cause injury, epidemic, disaster, death or destruction;
  • You agree that you are only authorized to visit, view, and retain a copy of pages of this Site for your own use, and that you will not duplicate, download, publish, modify, or otherwise distribute the material on this Site for any commercial use, or for any purpose other than as described in the Terms;
  • You will not use the Service to publish or transmit third party content, data or information which (A) are subject to copyright protection, unless such use or publishing is permitted under applicable copyright laws; (B) are obscene, blasphemous, defamatory, threatening, or against the public order, morality and binding regulations; (C) or contain trade and/or industrial secrets, infringe service marks or trademarks, patents, copyrights and software, or that, in general, breach confidentiality obligations or violate tangible or intellectual property rights of others; 
  • You are the sole controller of any personal data collected through use of the Service, and it is your sole responsibility to ensure the necessary compliance and to adopt all security measures required under current and future legislation;
  • You will abide to the laws of Canada or of your nation of residence, or the regulations, conventions, treaties and international agreements applicable to the subject matter. 


You are solely responsible for maintaining and safeguarding access to your Account. Should you suspect your Account has been compromised, it is your sole responsibility to take immediate action to protect your Entries. Immediate action may include, without limitation, logging on your Passportal account and changing your User ID or password immediately, or contacting Passportal to report an incident. 

An Organization will be deemed inactive if there has been no successful login to the associated Accounts for a twelve-month period. Inactive Organizations will be deleted from our system with notice. Upon deletion of your Organization, your stored Entries may be lost and may become permanently unrecoverable.

You agree to pay all fees and charges incurred in connection with the Services provided to you (including any applicable taxes) at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. If Passportal does not receive payment from any authorized payment provider of yours or its agent, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by Passportal.
