The terms of this Section 6 apply only to subscribers to the Cloud Backup Services.In order to use the Cloud Backup Services, You must create a user account and then select the cloud-based services which You wish to back up (the “Data”).

Once the backup process is completed, You will be able to monitor and restore the Data using the Cloud Backup Services. Other than for performing the Cloud Backup Services or for other services with your consent, and subject to applicable law, MICRODIUM will not access Your Data without Your permission, and Your Data will be decrypted only per your authorization when you view, index, virus scan, export or restore such Data.

Mail accounts.
If you wish to subscribe for an annual period, please contact us directly. Annual fees include a discount and paid using check, wire transfer or PayPal.
Our current monthly fees for use of the Cloud Backup Services are set forth in the Site under Price List.

The Fees will be paid by You via credit card or any other payment method as will become available at
MICRODIUM’s discretion. Payments do not include any taxes and You will bear the cost of any applicable tax.
Unless Your Account is properly terminated, MICRODIUM will automatically continue to back up Your Data on a monthly basis. For clarity, if You terminate an Account before the end of a certain month, You will be charged Fees for the entirety of that month.
