The following are the terms and conditions for use of the Hushmail service including present and future features offered by Hushmail and other services which may be offered from time to time by Hush Communications (“Hush”) for use with your Hushmail account (each feature individually and collectively referred to as the “Service”). Please read them carefully. This Service is provided to individuals who are at least 18 years old or to minors who have parental consent to open and maintain an account.
Each user is solely responsible for his or her transmissions through Hushmail. As a condition of your use of the Service, you affirm to Hush, that you will not use the Service for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by these terms, conditions, and notices. The Service is provided to individuals only and for personal use only. Any unauthorized commercial use of the Service, or the resale of its services, is expressly prohibited. By registering an address with Hushmail, you agree to be bound by the terms outlined in this Service Agreement. Hushmail may, at its sole discretion, immediately terminate service without cause or notice, should user’s conduct fail to conform to these conditions.
Our spam policy at Hushmail is “zero-tolerance”. Anyone found to be generating spam from within our system will have their user privileges revoked immediately. Persons attempting to forward spam email messages inbound to our system will be blocked and prevented from sending further email to any Hushmail users. Please note, however, that many messages appearing to originate from Hush (or any other) mail servers could contain “forged headers”, written by the party originating the messages to make them appear to come from somebody else. This is done to avoid action normally taken against those abusing email systems and to cause damage to the reputation of the parties appearing to have sent the messages. Experienced investigators can tell immediately whether headers have been forged and where the message actually originated; thus, it is important that any mail forwarded to us for investigation contains the complete headers from the original message.
Hush may terminate your access to the Service and any related service(s) at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately, for any reason whatsoever. Hush has no obligation to store or forward the contents of your account.
