Your files and personal information
By using our online backup, you provide information, files, and folders that you submit to MyData (collectively referred to as, "Your Files"). You have full ownership of your files and MyData has no claim or ownership over any files stored or transferred through its services by the client. These terms give us no rights over your files or intellectual property, other than the rights necessary to operate a functional backup and protection service as described below.
We may need your permission to perform tasks and maintenance, as requested by the client, such as hosting or sharing your files, which may give access to file identification features, such as image thumbnails or document previews. MyData may access your backup to the necessary extent required to operate the integral features of the backup service provided, this includes all cloud backup design choices we make to technically manage the online backup service. You give us the permission we need to perform these tasks solely, so that we can provide an optimal online backup service. This license also extends to trusted third party companies that we work with to provide a functional and optimal online backup. You, and only you, are responsible for your behavior, all content of your files and folders, and all communication with others through our cloud backup service.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the necessary rights and permissions to comply with these terms. We may choose to review publicly available content to ensure that it complies with our guidelines, but you acknowledge that MyData backup has no obligation to:
Monitor data / files in our online backup. We are not responsible for the accuracy, completeness, appropriateness, or legality of any files, user posts or other information you may be able to access using the backup service. We are not responsible for the rights of your files with regard to local laws and regulation. This also applies to online communication and data traffic of your files through our online backup solution.
Software and updates
Some of our online backup software requires you to download our backup software.
MyData backup grants you a limited, non-exclusive, personal, and revocable license to use our backup and cybersecurity software solutions. Your license to use the backup software will be automatically revoked if you violate these terms in a way that implies our intellectual property rights. We hereby reserve all rights not expressly granted in these terms. Do not reverse engineer or decompile the backup software or attempt to do so, nor help others to do so. Our backup services can update our online backup software on your device automatically when a new version is available. Your acceptance of these updates is required under the Terms.
You are responsible for protecting the password that you use to access our online backup, and you agree that you will not pass this on to third parties. You are responsible for all activity on your account, regardless of whether you have given permission or not. You must immediately notify MyData if you detect any illegal access or activity on your account. After the customer's payment at start-up, the customer is assigned an email with login information. It is the customer's responsibility to change these logins into something personal and secure them.
At MyData, security is the keyword. We therefore provide many different encryption levels, to ensure that our customers can tailor their backup security level as desired. With our Ultrasafe and Ultrasafe Max levels, we assign the encryption keys to the customer himself. By using these options you waive your support and recovery rights, as only the customer will have the encryptions key for access to the backup. Ultrasafe Max includes a passphrase, which further enhances security. *A selection of Ultrasafe and Ultrasafe Max is the customer's own responsibility, as our support for the solution is removed together with the password reset option provided for other levels of security. When choosing these security levels, the platform will clearly inform the user of these implications.
Your general responsibilities
You may not share, copy, download or upload any unauthorized files. You (and not MyData) will be fully responsible and liable for what you copy, share, upload and download or for any other use while using our online backup. Do not upload spyware or any other malicious cloud storage software. You (and not MyData) are responsible for maintaining and protecting all your files. MyData will not be responsible for any loss, corruption or costs associated with backing up or restoring your files. If your contact information or other information related to your account is changed, please notify us as soon as possible so that we can update your information.
Selection of files for backup
It is always the customer's own responsibility to ensure the choice of the desired backup, as well as follow-up on this. In our installation you will be able to self-assign several online backup tools; including our smart scanner. The smart scanner scans only for the displayed file types and locations, as specified. If Easy Setup is selected in the installation phase on Windows, you are assigned an automatic backup solution of the general folder locations of: Desktop - Documents - Pictures - Music - Video. If Advanced Setup is selected in the installation phase, you will have to decide for yourself the encryption level, selection of folders for backup and runtimes. In both cases, it is the customer's responsibility to make sure the desired and correct choices are made.

Additional terms for using MyData Backup
With MyData Backup you have several online backup security levels. Including UltraSafe and UltraSafe Max. At our highest security levels, we are excluded from being able to assist our customers, as the security is so high that even we and our datacenter providers, do not have the encryption keys for our customers' files. In the event of any security changes to your agreement, the customer responsibilities and liabilities will be stated, so the customer has always recognized the conditions for ultra-high security. As a customer, you may wish that we do not have access to the encryption key, and that you have a master password for your backup storage. This feature allows for a 100% private account, to which only the customer can access. However, this also removes MyData possibilities to support and handle the account, which is why we recommend considering the pitfalls carefully before choosing these options. If there are any questions in this regard, our support is ready to assist you on all business days.
With MyData backup, you have tools that can be set to delete the files on your cloud storage and on the computer, after a desired period. It is the customer's sole responsibility to choose a setting suitable to their needs. If you, as a customer, do not make adjustments in either settings or installation, you will be set up with the “Forever Safe”-level security option, which never deletes the files from cloud storage, even though they are deleted locally on the computer. If you change the level and settings herein, you will carry the sole responsibility for the effects hereof. Contact our support at the slightest doubt.
By starting a membership with MyData, you agree that you will not misuse MyData’s backup solution according to the following stipulations. For example, you must not - nor try to - use our backup service for the following actions: 1. Probe, scan or test the vulnerabilities in systems or networks. 2. Violate or otherwise circumvent any security or authentication measures. 3. Send virus, overloading, flooding or spamming. 4. Plant or otherwise send malware through our services. 5. Send advertisements, spam or other forms of false information - also called "spoofing" or "phishing". 6. You must not violate any local, nor any international European law in any way when using our backup software, product or service. 7. You will not use the encrypted backup to store any illegal content or files in full or partial form.

Renewal / deletion of payment card.

With MyData subscription service, you pay with your credit card. After your initial payment I completed, your invoices will be paid automatically from your card on a recurring basis, there will be no invoicing fees.

Next month you pay only for the days up to the 2nd of the month. To claify, if you bought your product on 21 February, the following month you will only pay for the days up to 2 March, and thereby pay for 10 days. If you have made the agreement with Viabill, it will always be their terms that apply to your payment. Terms for Viabill can be found in the Viabill section further down.

Changes in the allocations of data amount are made via the MyData dashboard. Here you can add and remove amount of data from the users you have created for the backup solution.
MyData has unlimited file zones. All uploaded versions will therefore be stored on our servers, so you have the opportunity to "jump back in time" if something is incorrectly stored. As a customer, you can regulate on the rules for version history on your dashboard, where all versions are saved if adjustments from the customer are not made. The latest version will always be the one displayed on the dashboard.
Backup of file types
MyData can continuously regulate restrictions on file types that are accepted for online backup storage. This is to achieve as stable a backup product for our customers as possible. MyData will always have the applicable terms stated in its material. It is the customer's responsibility to stay up to date via our customer-assigned customer database and terms.
“Forever Safe” and “safe” settings
With MyData, you have several options for storing files directly in the cloud; including “Forever Safe”. When you delete files which are only stored in the cloud storage, this is a permanent action. This action can not be undone, and you as a customer will therefore be warned about this before confirmation is given. As a customer, you are responsible for understanding the functions of the various backup features you interact with.
The “WIPE” function
The WIPE feature gives access to delete all online backups from the equipment, or delete all files on the equipment, via the dashboard. Please be careful with this backup feature, as you can leave the equipment useless and even without an operating system. This feature can be used in case of theft of equipment in order to prevent data loss or data theft. Warnings will therefore be indicated on the dashboard, when using the feature. If you have any doubts about the function, we recommend that you talk to one of our support agents prior to using this feature. It is the customer's responsibility to understand the outcome when using this feature.
We constantly strive to secure our customers' backups in the best possible way. One initiative is to continuously search for online machines that have not been set up. For example, if a computer is online without active backup set, we will, if technically possible, create a backup direectly from the cloud of the local equipment. Our goal is to protect the areas that are accessible from the cloud that we identify as essential, on online equipment without set up running. All fully encrypted. Please contact our support if you want help with your setup.
Backup of mobile devices
MyData has backup services that allow backup of mobile devices, with the systems iOS and Android. If you are in doubt as to whether your agreement contains this feature, you can contact our support at any time. The backup software will specify which files your mobile device gives permission to back up. Online backup of mobile devices has ‘Forever Safe’ as the default cloud storage option. The files that are backed up will therefore all be stored forever in the cloud. Here it is the customer's responsibility to delete the unwanted data from his dashboard if needed.
All payments made by the client for the backup services, at MyData, must be in accordance with the prices in the agreement and must be paid in advance. MyData reserves the right to change pricing and stop offering various elements of the online backup at any time. You can then decide if you want to continue to keep the backup service. We will notify you by email if we make any changes to our services. If you continue to use our backup product after being informed of any price or service change, it will be considered an acceptance. All payments for our cloud backup service must be paid in advance, and your payment will automatically be made within your chosen subscription period from your chosen agreement. If you choose to pay by credit or debit card, you accept that we automatically deduct the money from your account upon agreed renewal. If you wish to terminate your subscription with MyData, you must notify us in writing at email@example.com. All payments to MyData are non-refundable unless included in the terms of these terms. You agree that you will not be able to withdraw your payment through your bank for payments to MyData. If you do not accept this, you will be held responsible for all costs that will be in line with this action.
In the absence of payment, MyData reserves the right to block, close or make the solution unavailable immediately.
Upgrade in case of overconsumption
For security reasons, your backup of first selected areas will always be secured and will never be blocked from uploads, even if the amount of data purchased is exceeded. Our customers can at any time clearly follow all data consumption levels of the service, on the dashboard and on the installed software platform. Our customers can always adjust in their secured data online on the dashboard, here the client can also remove any unnecessary or unwanted data. After an account has exceeded its data quota for 10 days, it will automatically be upgraded and invoiced via the invoicing terms that apply to the agreement. An upgrade will always be an incremental increase of 20% of the previously purchased data quota and will be invoiced at 20% of the allotted price.
Hardware is delivered by parcel post, via our various affiliated partners. Delivery is always free of charge. Delivery time is expected to be approx. 1 week. All software is delivered by email or downloaded om MyData’s website and customer support can always help you install new software.
