Terms & Conditions of use
In these terms and conditions, "we", "us" and "our" means Cryptexonline Pty Ltd ACN 140 329 988. You should read these terms and conditions carefully as they apply to the services we provide, including data encryption, data storage and hosting services and software further described below (collectively called the "Services") and to your use of our website ("Website"). The Services are offered subject to and in conjunction with a limited licence to use our software known as Cryptexonline Advanced or Cryptexonline Lite (and other software we provide from time to time) ("Software").
You and/or the party you represent (as noted in the account you set up with us) agree to be bound by these terms and conditions and demonstrate your acceptance (and that of the party you represent) by clicking the check-box at the end of the account creation process OR by using the Services and/or Website. However, until you are notified by us that we accept you as a customer, we are not bound to provide you the Services or access to the Website, nor are we bound by these terms and conditions. We reserve the right to accept or reject any new customer.
We may change these terms and conditions from time to time by updating them on the Website and notifying you by email and such new terms and conditions will come into force 7 days thereafter. Therefore you should check our terms and conditions regularly. If the terms and conditions as amended are unacceptable to you, you must stop using the Services and Website.
We provide online data backup and storage,FTP and other hosting services. Our full range of Services and applicable charges are described on the Website. Broadly speaking and dependent on your compliance with our directions and these terms and conditions, for online backup and storage you will download the Software that will reside on your computer system (servers, desktops, laptops etc) which will automatically back-up data you select to our servers where we will store that data as a back-up. The Software will report via email on the success or otherwise of the scheduled backup/s. In most circumstances your data can be returned to you if you experience data loss. This return of data may occur via the internet, or we can provide the data via a physical disk where the amount of data is large. Where data is returned via physical disk, you will be charged a deposit for the return of the disk.
The data that you send to our server is encrypted by you (by using the Software) before it leaves your system, meaning that if the file is intercepted it should not be able to be read. The data is also compressed for better storage utilisation.
For other hosted services, you use your standard web browser and an internet connection to connect to and interact with web pages and databases that are hosted on Cryptexonline's servers.
Your reliance on the Services
You acknowledge that the Services include the Software where applicable.
While we will attempt to provide the Services as and when required by you, this is not always possible. Our Service may not be available at all times, for example, during scheduled maintenance or during unforeseen and uncontrollable circumstances including acts of God.
Where our Service will not be available due to scheduled maintenance, we may notify you via email and via a posting on the Website advising you of the scheduled maintenance.
We reserve the right to provide and require installation of Software upgrades, where applicable, from time to time in order to improve the provision of our Services.
We do not warrant that all types of data are suitable for the Software or Services.
Whilst all reasonable effort is made and we use industry standard forms of physical and data protection, we cannot guarantee nor do we warrant that your data is or will be free from unauthorized access, viruses, corruption or loss.
We do not warrant or guarantee that our Software will perform on every computer system and we are to be held harmless for any loss or damage that occurs as a result of this non performance.
Whilst every effort will be made to provide you with your stored data in the quickest possible time when requested, we cannot guarantee the expediency of data recovery and return services outside of our control, for example, but not limited to, time lost through transit providers for the provision of physical disks or the speed or availability of services provided by internet service providers for online data retrievals.
Your use of the Services and Website
You use the Services and Website at your risk. You must evaluate and bear all risks associated with the use of any Software, material or content, including reliance on the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any Software, material or content. We endeavour to provide convenient and functional Services, but we do not guarantee that all your requirements will be met or that any Services will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, error free or that the Services (or Website) or the servers that operates same are free of viruses or other harmful components. We do not warrant or guarantee that defects in the operation or functionality of any Software or hosted service provided to you as part of the Services will be corrected.
Any material downloaded or otherwise obtained through the use of the Services is done at your own discretion and risk and you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer system or other device or loss of data that results from the download of any such material.
No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from us or through or arising from your use of the Services shall create any warranty not expressly stated in these terms and conditions.
While we will attempt to keep information on the Services and contained on the Website current and accurate, we do not make any warranties or representations about the currency or accuracy of any information on the Services or contained on the Website. To the extent permitted by law, the Services, Software and everything on the Website is provided to you "AS IS" and "AS AVAILABLE" without warranty or condition of any kind, either express or implied, including but not limited to, any implied warranties of accuracy, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose or non-infringement. We exclude all representations and warranties to the full extent permissible under applicable law.
Limitation of liability
Certain rights and remedies may be available under the Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth) or similar legislation of other States or Territories and may not be permitted to be excluded, restricted or modified. Apart from those that cannot be excluded, we and our related entities exclude all conditions and warranties that may be implied by law. To the extent permitted by law, our liability for breach of any implied warranty or condition that cannot be excluded is restricted, at our option to: (a) the re-supply of services or payment of the cost of re-supply of services; or (b) the replacement or repair of goods or payment of the cost of replacement or repair. We are not liable for any direct, incidental, special, consequential or indirect damages, loss or corruption of data, loss of profits, goodwill, bargain or opportunity, loss of anticipated savings or any other similar or analogous loss resulting from your access to, or use of, or inability to use the Services and/or Website or any Software or content, or in any way relating to the Services or Software, whether based on warranty, contract, tort, negligence, in equity or any other legal theory, and whether or not we knew or should have known of the possibility of such damage. For the avoidance of doubt (and without limiting the scope of the exclusion in this clause) the exclusion includes loss or damage as a result of: any reliance placed by you on the completeness, accuracy or existence of any advertising of ours, or as a result of any relationship or transaction between you and any advertiser or sponsor whose advertising appears in material related to the Services; any changes which we may make to the Services, or for any permanent or temporary cessation in the provision of the Services (or any features within the Services); the deletion of, corruption of, or failure to store, any content and other communications data maintained or transmitted by or through your use of the Services; your failure to provide us with accurate account and payment information; your failure to keep your password or account details secure and confidential; and your failure to keep your encryption key secure and confidential or your failure to choose an encryption key different to the default provided by us.
Pricing and Payment
The prices for our Services are set out on the Website from time to time or made available through a specific quotation from an authorised representative of Cryptexonline.
The Services are to be paid for via credit card (Visa or Mastercard only) or via direct credit to Cryptexonline's bank account. Cryptexonline's bank accounts details for direct credit are as follows:
Cryptexonline Pty Ltd
Your Cryptexonline username or your invoice number
All prices are provided in Australian dollars (AUD) and will include GST or any other form of taxation on sales as required under Australian law at the time the services are rendered, where applicable.
Services will be billed, and must be paid for, on the first day of each calendar month in advance unless another billing arrangement is offered by Cryptexonline
We will store your credit card information as entered via our Website and you consent to the automatic charging of this credit card by us for your scheduled charges. As a courtesy, when your credit card is approaching its renewal date, we will email you a reminder to enter your updated credit card details into the Website. It is your responsibility to ensure that the correct credit card details are available to us.
We will issue you a Tax Invoice at the beginning of each billing period to the email address you advised to us in the customer details section of the Website. It is your responsibility to ensure that the correct email address is available to us.
Where Services are billed monthly and are first contracted other than at the beginning of a calendar month, the first billing period will be a prorata calculation for the days of service provided in the first calendar month, calculated as follows:
(Monthly fee divided by days in first month multiplied by days in first month for which Services were active) .
For example, Services commenced on 14th June would be calculated as follows:
(Monthly fee divided by 30 days in June multiplied by 17 days of Services provided in June)
If you are a casual customer, your service can be amended (see paragraph below), however, if your service is cancelled, you will not be refunded for the remainder of the month of cancellation, if any.
Where you amend your plan during a calendar month, you will be credited prorata (refer to a prorata calculation above) for the unused portion of your old plan up until the date you change your plan. You will also be charged prorata (refer to the prorata calculation above) for your first month of your new plan. Any credit given will be applied to any current outstanding charges. If the credit given exceeds any currently outstanding charges, the credit will remain on your account and will be applied to any future charges until such time as the credit amount is exhausted.
If you are a contracted customer, you are bound to a minimum of the original (prior to any upgrade or downgrade) total contract price. If you wish to terminate the contract early you must pay us the outstanding value of the contract. Alternatively, you may wish to upgrade or downgrade your contract.
A contracted customer may upgrade their contract to a higher plan contract during their contract period in one of two ways:
- by ending the current contract with us and signing a new contract with us for the higher plan amount, where the total value of this plan is greater than the original contract, or
- by continuing your current contract with us and buying additional Services or server space (GB) from us on a temporary basis
A contracted customer may downgrade their contract to a lower plan contract during their contract period by:
- selecting the lower plan
- dividing the remaining contract value by the lower plan amount to identify the new remaining period for the contract
- adding 2 months to the new remaining contract period for Cryptexonline to recoup administration costs and lost time value of money through changing the contract
By way of an example. A contract customer originally signed up for a 12 month contract for a plan that cost $100 per month. The total contract value is therefore $1,200 (12 months @ $100 per month). Three months into the contract, the customer requires to downgrade the contract to a $50 per month plan. After three months, the remaining value of the contract is $900 ((12 months contract - 3 months used) @ $100 per month). The customer would be required to amend the contract to agree to a contract of $50 per month for 20 months ($900 / $50 per month = 18 months + 2 months for administration costs = 20 months)
We reserve the right to increase your scheduled fees at any time by notice to you. If you are a casual customer, any fee increases will take effect from your next scheduled billing period. If you are a contracted customer, the fee will increase effective from the end of the contracted period. We will publish our schedule of fees on the Website from time to time and will advise you of upcoming fee increases via your email.
Use of Cryptexonline Hardware and associated Deposits
We may provide you with physical media or other computer hardware (Hardware) for use in supplying you with Services. Generally, Hardware would be required for the provision of seed load and data recovery services for online backup services. You agree that we may charge you a deposit for this Hardware.
The Hardware deposit will be refundable upon return to us of the Hardware, in good working condition. The costs of return of the Hardware to us will be paid by you.
As the Hardware we provide to you may become physically or technically obsolete over time, you will forfeit your deposit unless the Hardware is returned to us within three (3) calendar months from the date of the initial deposit.
Non payment for your Cryptexonline Services
If you fail to pay for the Services in accordance with these terms and conditions, your account will be suspended.
Should you require the return of your data after the Services have been suspended, you will need to contact us via email at email@example.com to arrange return of your data. An administration fee of $250.00, in addition to the value of your account outstanding up until the time of suspension, will be charged for the return of your data after your account has been suspended.
Note: any data not retrieved 30 days after your Services have been suspended will be deleted from our servers.

128-bit SSL encryption is approximated to take at least one trillion years to break, and is the industry standard.
It is important to note however that not all Internet browsers are configured or capable of establishing connections using 256-bit AES typically these will operate at the industry standard of 128-bit AES.
