Some parts of StayPrivate Services allow you to download software ("Software") which may update automatically. So long as you comply with these Terms, we give you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to use the Software, solely to access our Service. To the extent any component of the Software may be offered under an open source license, we will make that license available to you and the provisions of that license may expressly over-ride some of these Terms.

The price list for StayPrivate Services is available on the website, www.Quorum.com. You must be authorized to use the payment method that you register, and you must keep all billing information current.

You may cancel your StayPrivate Paid Account at any time but you will not be issued a refund.
Your Paid Account will remain in effect until it is cancelled or terminated under these Terms. If you do not pay for your Paid Account on time, we reserve the right to either partially or fully suspend your account.
We may change the fees in effect but will give you advance notice of any changes via a message to the email address associated with your account.
If you use StayPrivate Services on behalf of an employer or other organisation, then you must use it in compliance with your employer's terms and policies. Please note that user accounts are subject to your employer's oversight and control. For example, your administrators and controllers may be able to access, disclose, restrict, or remove information in or from your user account. They may also be able to restrict or terminate your access to your user account.
You are free to stop using StayPrivate Services at any time. We also reserve the right to suspend or end StayPrivate Services at any time at our discretion and without notice. For example, we may suspend or terminate your use of StayPrivate Services if you are not complying with these Terms, or use the Service in a manner that would cause us legal liability, disrupt StayPrivate Services or disrupt others' use of StayPrivate Services.
We strive to provide a great Service, but there are certain things that we cannot guarantee. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, STAYPRIVATE LTD, ALWAYS ORGANISED LTD AND ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ABOUT QUORUM. QUORUM IS PROVIDED "AS IS." WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL STAYPRIVATE LTD, ALWAYS ORGANISED LTD, ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS OR DISTRIBUTORS BE LIABLE FOR (A) ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR ANY LOSS OF USE, DATA, BUSINESS, OR PROFITS, REGARDLESS OF LEGAL THEORY, WHETHER OR NOT STAYPRIVATE HAS BEEN WARNED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND EVEN IF A REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE; (B) AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO QUORUM MORE THAN THE GREATER OF £100 OR THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO STAYPRIVATE FOR THE PAST 12 MONTHS OF QUORUM IN QUESTION.
We prefer to address any concerns without resorting to the law courts. Before filing a claim against StayPrivate, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting us at disputes@StayPrivate.com. We will try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting you via email. If a dispute is not resolved within 28 days of submission, you or StayPrivate may bring a formal proceeding.
You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action.
These Terms will be governed by UK law.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and StayPrivate with respect to the subject matter of these Terms, and supersede and replace any other prior or contemporaneous agreements, or terms and conditions applicable to the subject matter of these Terms. These Terms create no third party beneficiary rights.
StayPrivate’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found to be unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible. You may not assign any of your rights under these Terms, and any such attempt will be void. StayPrivate may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with StayPrivate Services.
We may revise these Terms from time to time, and will always post the most current version on our website. If a revision meaningfully reduces your rights, we will notify you (by, for example, sending a message to the email address associated with your account). By continuing to use or access StayPrivate Services after the revisions come into effect, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.
Effective: 8th February 2017
This policy describes how we collect, use and safeguard your information when you use our websites, software and services ("Service").
This policy describes the sources of personal information we may collect about you, the purposes for which we use information, the circumstances in which we may share information, and the steps that we take to safeguard information to protect your privacy.
There are three categories of data which we store: basic data, general data, and usage data.
We collect, and associate with your account, information like your name, email address, phone number, payment info, and physical address. We use this information to deliver StayPrivate Services, to bill you for use of StayPrivate Services (if applicable), and also to allow us to communicate directly with you. We do not, outside of specific exceptions described below, share this information with third parties.
We may disclose your personal information to fulfil your instructions, to protect our rights and interests or pursuant to your express consent. Under limited circumstances, your personal information may be disclosed to third parties under our Compliance Policy and as permitted by, or to comply with, applicable laws and regulations, for instance, to protect against fraud or to co-operate with law enforcement or regulatory authorities.
When you use StayPrivate Services, we store, process and transmit your files and information (including emails, messages, documents and photos) and information related to them (for example, time of last change). Other than the restricted rights described in our Compliance Policy, we do not have access nor any other rights to this data. All communication remains your property and is encrypted in transfer. All stored files remain your property and are encrypted in storage. We use third party cloud storage providers (such as Amazon), but only stored your files in encrypted form and store the encryption keys separately on our own servers, so that third party storage providers have no access to your information.
We collect information from and about the devices you use to access StayPrivate Services. This includes things like IP addresses, the type of browser and device you use, the web page you visited before coming to our sites, and identifiers associated with your devices. This information is only used to help us deliver StayPrivate Services efficiently to you and we do not share it with anyone.
You can set your browser to not accept cookies, and this should not make any difference to your ability to use StayPrivate Services. The Help menu on the menu bar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether. To learn more about what cookies are set on your computer as you browse the web and how to manage or delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
If you use StayPrivate Services as an employee, agent, client, potential client, or similar, of an organisation, that organisation itself will be able to access all the data you provide to StayPrivate Services, regardless of which members of the organisation you have shared data with. This access is normally (but not necessarily always) achieved through the Administrator or Controller roles incorporated within StayPrivate Services.
If you use StayPrivate Services as an employee, agent, client, potential client, or similar, of an organisation, your administrator and/or controller(s) may have the ability to access and control your account. Please refer to your employer's internal policies if you have questions about this.
As described in our Compliance Policy, we may disclose your information to third parties if we determine that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with the law; (b) protect any person from death or serious bodily injury; (c) prevent fraud or abuse of StayPrivate Services or our users; or (d) protect StayPrivate’s property rights.
We have a team dedicated to keeping your information secure and testing for vulnerabilities. We also continue to work on features to keep your information safe in addition to things like two-factor authentication, encryption of files at rest, and alerts when new devices and apps are linked to your account.
StayPrivate is committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of your personal information. We limit access to your personal information to authorized StayPrivate employees or agents and, as described above, StayPrivate Services providers are held to stringent standards of privacy. We also maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect the information against loss, misuse, damage or modification and unauthorized access or disclosure.
We will retain information you store on StayPrivate Services for as long as we need it to provide you StayPrivate Services. If you delete your account, we will also delete this information. But please note: (1) there might be some latency in deleting this information from our servers and back-up storage; and (2) we may retain this information if necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, or enforce our agreements.
If your relationship with StayPrivate ends and we retain any of your personal information we will continue to treat it as described in this policy.
To provide you with StayPrivate Services, we may store, process and transmit information in locations around the world - including those outside your country. Information may also be stored locally on the devices you use to access StayPrivate Services. We will endeavour, where possible under the law, to store information in the European Union.
If we are involved in a reorganisation, merger, acquisition or sale of our assets, the way your information is managed may change as part of that deal. We will notify you (for example, via a message to the email address associated with your account) of any such deal and outline your choices in that event.
If you have questions or concerns about StayPrivate and privacy, contact us at privacy@StayPrivate.com.

StayPrivate Compliance Policy
Effective: 8th February 2017
StayPrivate respects all organisations' and individuals' rights to privacy, however, StayPrivate respects the law foremost and also recognises that organisations and individuals only retain their rights to privacy while they are not seriously disrespecting the rights of others. StayPrivate will resist any unlawful requests from governments and other third parties to access your data. StayPrivate's annual compliance report (to be first published in March 2017) will contain a section summarising all requests for information received and whether information was provided.
Although StayPrivate, as a whole, is able to access your data and information because it needs to in order to be able to deliver its Service to Clients and to allow Clients to access their own information, StayPrivate’s clients should have total confidence that, in the normal course of events, StayPrivate will not access your information. StayPrivate therefore operates a series of “Chinese walls” within its organisation so that no individual has sufficient access to the various encryption keys and database to be able to circumvent our controls and access any Client data.
StayPrivate accepts no responsibility for the actions of any of its Clients. However, at its discretion, and where it believes that it can do so without compromising users’ rights to privacy, StayPrivate does adopt processes designed to uncover seriously unacceptable behaviour, such as child abuse. The StayPrivate Compliance Team, subject to Senior Management approval, running certain automated scripts over the StayPrivate client database. These scripts are carefully targeted and designed to uncover specific types of seriously unacceptable behaviour. The results of running these scripts are entirely anonymised. If the StayPrivate Compliance Team uncovers evidence of what it believes is seriously unacceptable behaviour then, subject to Senior Management approval, it may be allowed further access in order to gather further evidence. If the outcome of its further investigations provides strong evidence of seriously unacceptable behaviour the, again subject to Senior Management approval, the StayPrivate Compliance team may be able to gain full read access to individual Client accounts. If it uncovers criminal activity, the StayPrivate Compliance team, at its discretion, may share such information with the relevant authorities.
StayPrivate accepts no responsibility for the failure of its Compliance Team to uncover seriously unacceptable behaviour.
Annual Compliance Report
StayPrivate’s Annual Compliance Report will be first published in March 2017. The Report will contain a summary of all the various activities of the StayPrivate Compliance Team.
