Last update: 13 February 2016 (to replace references to "tny. internet media" with "Segvault"; the text was not altered except for this)
These terms and conditions apply to those looking to use the service from an single individual perspective, that is, to create accounts and use them for authenticating. Developers and owners of "External Services" (defined in the terms) must agree to special terms and conditions, in addition to the following ones. These terms are to be made available to the relevant parties at appropriate times.
Because reading legalese is rarely interesting, here is a summary:
Note that this summary holds no legal value.
Please read the following terms and conditions ("Terms") carefully before using the https://dotaccount.tny.im website ("dotAccount", the "Service"). These Terms apply to your access and use of dotAccount. If you don't agree to all of the terms below, please do not use the Service. Also, if a term does not make sense to you, please let us know by contacting us.
We reserve the right to modify these Terms at any time. For instance, we may need to change these Terms if we come out with a new feature or for some other reason.
Whenever we make changes to these Terms, the changes are effective 30 days after we post such revised Terms (indicated by revising the date at the top of these Terms) or upon your acceptance if we provide a mechanism for your immediate acceptance of the revised Terms (such as a click-through confirmation or acceptance button). It is your responsibility to check dotAccount for changes to these Terms.
We also reserve the right to make changes to the Terms effective immediately and without notice, if the changes do not alter the spirit of the Terms. For instance, changes may be effective immediately when they constitute grammar or spelling corrections, as long as these do not alter the meaning of the Terms.
If you continue to use the Service after the revised Terms go into effect, then you have accepted the changes to these Terms.
When you create an account or use another service to sign in to the Service, you agree to maintain the security of your password and accept all risks of unauthorized access to any data or other information you provide to the Service.
If you discover or suspect any Service security breaches, please let us know as soon as possible, in a responsible way, adequate to the apparent proportion of the breach.
Our Service allows you to submit personal information ("Content"), which is not made public by dotAccount, but may be transmitted to External Services at your sole discretion (by agreeing to "permissions" when signing in to a External Service through dotAccount) and eventually made public, in accordance to the terms and conditions of these External Services. You are responsible for the Content that you make available to the Service and External Services, including its legality, reliability, and appropriateness.
Aside from our limited right to your Content, you retain all of your rights to the Content you post, link and otherwise make available on or through the Service.
You can remove the Content you posted by deleting or, when that is not possible, modifying it in such a way that it becomes obviously inaccurate. Once you delete or modify your Content, it will not appear or be used by the Service, but copies of your previous Content may remain in our system or backups for some period of time. Previous Content may also remain for indeterminate periods of time in the External Services, to which, at your sole discretion, the Content was transmitted. Refer to the terms and conditions of each External Service for more details.
Also, for technical reasons, changes to your Content are not effective immediately in all the External Services you may have used your account with. Generally, the changes are made known to an External Service the next time you use dotAccount to authenticate ("sign in") to it.
You agree that you will not do any of the following in connection with the Service or other users:
We put a lot of effort into creating the Service including, the logo and all designs, text, graphics, pictures, information and other content (excluding your content).

If you do any of this stuff, we may terminate your use of the Service, and External Services may, at their discretion, terminate your use of them.
You may create a hyperlink to the Service. But, you may not use, frame or utilize framing techniques to enclose any of our trademarks, logos or other proprietary information without our express written consent.

IN NO EVENT WILL Segvault BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE OR ANY OTHER SERVICE AND/OR CONTENT INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE SERVICE, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES OR ARE AWARE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. OUR TOTAL LIABILITY FOR ALL CAUSES OF ACTION AND UNDER ALL THEORIES OF LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT YOU PAID TO Segvault. THIS SECTION WILL BE GIVEN FULL EFFECT EVEN IF ANY REMEDY SPECIFIED IN THIS AGREEMENT IS DEEMED TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold us harmless from and against any and all costs, damages, liabilities, and expenses (including attorneys' fees, costs, penalties, interest and disbursements) we incur in relation to, arising from, or for the purpose of avoiding, any claim or demand from a third party relating to your use of the Service or the use of the Service by any person using your account, including any claim that your use of the Service violates any applicable law or regulation, or the rights of any third party, and/or your violation of these Terms.
You may keep your account on the Service as long as you respect these Terms and the terms and conditions governing External Services, and respect the laws of the countries in which Segvault and the parties responsible for External Services are located.
If you breach any of these Terms, we have the right to suspend or disable your access to or use of the Service.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Segvault regarding the use of the Service, superseding any prior agreements between you and Segvault relating to your use of the Service.

When you provide us with any feedback, comments or suggestions about the Service, these Terms and, in general, dotAccount, you irrevocably assign to us all of your right, title and interest in and to your feedback, comments and suggestions.
