We appreciate your selection of SecureMyFirm, a service of Active Online Inc., as a provider of valuable technology products and services. You and the protection of your information and data are extremely important to us. This agreement states both your and our obligations as the customer and the provider of the products and services you have purchased.

Protecting your digital data and information with backup technology is vitally important. Our software and services are designed to ensure that your files are backed up continually It is your responsibility to maintain a current, updated email address in your online backup account and monitor messages sent to that address so that we may alert you regarding your services and products.

You need to take care to include new and changed folders and files within the selection of folders and files to be backed up by our products and services. New folders and files will be automatically included if they are created within a folders already selected for backup. But you need to use our easy selection screen to select any new folders/files created outside of folders already selected for backup.

Our manuals and help are designed to guide you in installing our products, making your backup selections, and using our services, but it is your responsibility to ensure that the products are working properly and that you have selected all of your important folders and files. It is your obligation to periodically test your backups by restoring some files to confirm that your backups are working properly.

SecureMyFirm is not intended to be your one and only backup system. While our software and services are designed to be extremely reliable and are thoroughly tested, you should always use two or more independent and compatible backup systems to protect your valuable digital data and information. The protection of your files is our top priority, but we are not responsible for lost files and consequences as described more fully below. You may be assured, however, that all of your backed up files are 100% encrypted using ultra-strong encryption technology.

It is your responsibility to safeguard your passwords. If a password is forgotten, it may be necessary to backup all your files again and the history of previously deleted files and previous file changes may be lost. Please take care to write down your passwords and store them securely both onsite and offsite.

We carefully select companies that provide enterprise-class software and hosting services that power our services. We provide service, documentation and support to you. All of your files selected for backup are protected from disclosure in the data centers by ultra-strong encryption at all times during transfer to and from storage and during storage on the secure servers.

Our backup software and services work silently and automatically, placing no noticeable burden on your computers or Internet connection after the first full backup. While our system works reliably and requires little effort on your part, it is still important to spot check your backups by periodically restoring some files to confirm that you can do so if you need to and to confirm that the backup system is working properly.
