Unlike other terms and policy statements that use pages and pages of legalese to cloud the hardline truth, we believe you deserve the courtesy of simple, truthful disclosure without needing to take a week off to read it.
The recitations below pertain to all of our products, including but not limited to; The Iron Jacket™ Web Security Software, Secure Hosting Services and The Iron Jacket™ Firewall. This also includes EV-SSL Certificates as acquired through our vendors.
1. THE IRON JACKET™ Web Security Library is entirely proprietary coding. Don’t ask or expect to learn anything about how it functions beyond what we disclose in our advertising. All you need to know is that it works without impeding the function of your Website and that the software is not programmable to spy on you from within.
2. Internet and Web security is like a living organism that is changing every moment. The cyber world is brimming with malcontents, determined to upset the balance of peaceful cyber commerce. While we are engaged in continuous, best efforts monitoring and system upgrades, we acknowledge that such monitoring and threat intervention efforts are not a perfect science. At some point a malicious hack may slip by. With that very remote possibility, our goal is to catch, identify and destroy as quickly as systems allow. We do not guarantee anything beyond our reasonable best efforts.
3. We do not control subscriber Websites, their administrators or their users, so therefore we will not be responsible or liable for inappropriate use and/or lapses in security protocol resulting in a hack. THE IRON JACKET™ is NOT a replacement fix for lax or irresponsible administrative security planning and implementation.
4. This software is not to be installed and maintained by anyone other than our technicians. IT managers will be trained to monitor the system in their care. All installations include monitoring and maintenance on a basic level. Websites hosted on The Iron Jacket™ Hosting Service already have monitoring and maintenance included. Large, customized applications will have extended and separate monitoring and maintenance agreements added. Regardless, all applicants will require a Cyber Security Audit which includes a “Best Practices” Evaluation and Consultation prior to the installation.
5. THE IRON JACKET™ reserves the right to refuse or withdraw service from users deemed as high risk, inappropriate, illegal in any fashion or as a potential National Security threat. If your Website is utilized to facilitate any of the above-mentioned illicit activities, DO NOT waste our time with an application for service. We are not a shelter for crime or inappropriate content of any kind.
Purchase and Installation of Services
6. Cyber Security Audits and Consultations must be paid in full and in advance. There are no refunds.
7. The subscribers signed application will become a permanent part of the subscription agreement when it is executed.
8. Annual Subscriptions for The Iron Jacket™, IJ Hosting Services, Iron Jacket™ Firewall and ordered add-ons will be secured under a 24 month or 36 month agreement. The first 90 days must be paid in full prior to the installation and activation of software. Thereafter, subscriptions will be invoiced and payable monthly. All fees are subject to change without notice.
9. Each security software unit is individually identified with a specific Key. Subscribers accept responsibility to secure and protect their IRON JACKET KEY. Note: If your KEY is used to attempt an unauthorized installation on a Website not included in the original registration, IRON JACKET™ will be immediately and entirely disabled. This dramatic extraction of the software will possibly cause severe damage to the Websites and servers involved. In this instance, service will be immediately cancelled without recourse.
Growth Upgrades and Fees.
10. We expect user Websites to grow with their business. As soon as you realize your coverage may need upsizing, please call us to arrange for the necessary upgrades. Also, as a fail-safe, we monitor CPU’s and bandwidth usage on our accounts and we will be alerted when individual systems are pushing the envelope of the permitted usage. At that time we will contact you to initiate immediate upgrade. Similarly, reduced business activity will be re-evaluated for changes at the end of their annual cycle. We will not be responsible if your IRON JACKET™ product fails to function when an upgrade is needed and ignored. Upgrades will start a new annual cycle on the date of the upgrade. The unused balance of the original subscription purchase will be applied to the new balance due. Some upgrades may require payment of an advance upgrade fee. All fees are subject to change without notice.
Cancellations and Refunds
11. Subscribers may cancel service at any time. A full refund will be returned if the cancellation occurs within the first 30 days of service and a written notice is certified as received by us before the end of the first 30 days. After 30 days the refund will be prorated against total time of service already used from the first day, less a 40% setup/removal fee assessed against the full value of the subscription agreement.
Renewals and Non Payment of Renewal
12. All subscriptions, standard or custom, will be automatically renewed annually. We will do this using the payment information on file 14 days prior to the expiration date in an effort to maintain service without interruption. Thirty days prior to expiration and 16 days before billing is processed, subscribers will be notified of pending renewal via the email posted in the owner’s registration information. Subscribers bear the responsibility to make sure their payment and contact information is updated and correct. Given the 30-day renewal notice, there is no grace period following the expiration date. If an account is allowed to expire, the KEY for that system is destroyed. To resume IRON JACKET ™ coverage, a new subscription must be purchased and current rates will apply.
