1. Resources Used for the Provision of Services

User accounts have fixed limits in order that we can provide a well functioning service for all users. We can disable your account should there be any attempt to use the service in a way that we deem to be unreasonable and that affects the usage of the service by others. What consists of 'reasonable use' is completely at our discretion and your account may be disbled without prior notice if your usage is disruptive and if deemed necessary to restore a quality of service.

Once a secret has been recieved by a recipient, we have no way of retrieving said secret again, nor do we log or keep any data that tracks the sender or receiver's IP address.
