You are solely responsible for creating backup copies of any of your content that you submit to Conceal.
Some states/jurisdictions do not allow exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so in such jurisdictions the above limitations or exclusions may not apply. In such cases, our liability and that of its affiliates, suppliers and partners will be limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Conceal and its affiliates, and our employees, contractors, suppliers, partners, agents, officers and directors, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees), resulting from or arising out of your access to and/or use of the Services or your breach of this Agreement.
The Terms and your use of the Services will be interpreted, governed and construed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule that would require or permit the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than those of the Commonwealth of Virginia, unless otherwise agreed in a separate written agreement with Conceal or as required by a mandatory law of a competent jurisdiction.
ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE TERMS AND/OR USE OF THE SERVICES MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES OTHERWISE SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED AND WAIVED FOREVER THEREAFTER. Except for claims of infringement or misappropriation of patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret, any and all disputes arising under or related in any way to the Terms or your use of the Services, must be resolved through binding arbitration. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be interpreted broadly. It includes, but is not limited to, all claims and disputes relating to your use of any aspect of the Services. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA“). The arbitrator’s ruling is binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event this agreement to arbitrate is held unenforceable by a court, then the disputes that would otherwise have been arbitrated shall be exclusively brought in the state or federal courts located in the Commonwealth of Virginia. You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts.
You agree to comply with all applicable federal laws, regulations, and rules, and complete all required undertakings (including obtaining any necessary export license or other governmental approval), that prohibit or restrict the export or re-export of the Services, Conceal intellectual property or any customer data outside the United States.
You acknowledge and agree that a breach or threatened breach of any of your obligations under these Terms would cause Conceal irreparable harm for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and agree that, in the event of such breach or threatened breach, Conceal will be entitled to equitable relief, including a restraining order, an injunction, specific performance and any other relief that may be available from any court, without any requirement to post a bond or other security, or to prove actual damages or that monetary damages are not an adequate remedy. Such remedies are not exclusive and are in addition to all other remedies that may be available at law, in equity or otherwise.
To the extent it may be applicable, the application of the U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (1980) to this Agreement is expressly excluded.
The Services are “Commercial Items,” as that term is defined at 48 C.F.R. § 2.101, consisting of “Commercial Computer Software” and “Commercial Computer Software Documentation,” as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. § 12.212 or 48 C.F.R. § 227.7202, as applicable.

Conceal will not be responsible or liable to you, or deemed in default or breach hereunder by reason of any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations hereunder where such failure or delay is due to strikes, labor disputes, civil disturbances, riot, rebellion, invasion, epidemic or pandemic, hostilities, war, terrorist attack, embargo, natural disaster, acts of God, flood, fire, sabotage, fluctuations or non-availability of electrical power, heat, light, air conditioning, or your equipment, loss and destruction of property, or any other circumstances or causes beyond Conceal’s reasonable control.
Third Party Beneficiaries
The Terms create no third-party beneficiary rights. The Terms shall inure to the benefit of Conceal and its respective legal representatives, successors, and assigns.
Waiver, Assignment & Severability
Conceal failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. You may not assign any of your rights under the Terms, and any such attempt will be void. Conceal may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services. If any provision of the Terms are held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, such provision shall be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent allowed by law and the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full force and effect.
Changes to the Terms
We may, in our sole discretion, amend these Terms from time to time. We will update the “Last Updated” date at the top of these Terms, which reflect the effective date of the updated Terms. We may also use the Conceal.io website, Services, e-mail or other means for notifying you of such changes. The updated Terms shall become effective and replace the prior Terms at the time of posting or such other time as may be indicated by us. If you do not agree with or accept the updated Terms, you can choose to not access and use the Services, to terminate your relationship with Conceal, and to close your account. You will be deemed to have accepted the updated Terms if you continue to access and use the Services after the updated Terms become effective.
Conceal respects the intellectual property of others and ask that you do too. We respond to notices of alleged infringement after receipt of a proper notice that complies with the law and is received by our designated agent. We reserve the right to delete or disable content alleged to be infringing and terminate accounts of repeat infringers. If you believe that any content in the Services in a way that constitutes infringement, please provide our designated agent with the following information:
- an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the rights owner;
- a description of the content you claim is being infringed;
- a description or link to the location of the material claim is infringing;
- your physical address, telephone number and e-mail address;
- a statement that you have a good faith belief that the content is not authorized by the rights owner, its agent or the law;
- a statement, made under penalty of perjury, that the information in your notice is accurate and that you are the owner or authorized to act on behalf of the owner.
Contact information for Conceal’s designated agent for notice of claims of infringement is provided in the “Notices” section below. Conceal may also take any appropriate action in the event it receives a proper counter-notice under the law.
