Description of Service
Passpack offers an innovative internet-based service that uses highly secured cryptographic technologies to organize, manage, store and share confidential data and information. When you sign up for our Service, you will be prompted to create a password protected account (the "Account") where you can enter and save confidential data and information on our servers (the "Entries"). There is no cost to become a registered User and have access to the Service. You will be assigned a user identification code ("User ID") to access your Account. Entries are transmitted always and exclusively in encrypted form. The process of encrypting, decrypting and rendering Entries intelligible on receipt takes place on your own local computer, via browser, using a secret code only known to you (the "Packing Key"). As such, we can NEVER access nor decipher your Entries. We do not maintain a copy of your Packing Key and cannot recover it, nor can we recover your Entries, if any are lost.
