1. Prisidio as a Platform Provider.
Prisidio provides a software platform (the “Platform”) that allows its users to store data, photographs, documents, materials, and/or other content (collectively, “User Content”) in a single online location on the Platform, access to which is controlled by the User. Each User location storing User Content is referred to as a “Vault”.
A. Vault Owners: You are responsible for (i) managing your Vault and the User Content that you upload, transmit, post or otherwise make available for the Services; (ii) selecting who can access your Vault and what those individuals can see and do in your Vault; and (iii) ensuring that your contact information is up to date. Depending on the permissions selected by you, other users may delete and/or modify the User Content in your Vault. User Content that is deleted cannot be retrieved except under limited circumstances and any such retrieval will incur an additional fee. Prisidio will not be liable for any damages or losses that occur as a result of your use of the Services or from a third party’s actions. Any third-party to whom you provide or otherwise make available User Content via the Services will be permitted to use the User Content to the same extent as if you provided it directly to that third party. When a User accesses your Vault, you may be provided with location data for such User, however, you may opt-out from such location notifications. Before uploading any information to the Services or providing access to a User, please familiarize yourself with your account settings to understand which users may access the User Content in your Vault and the permissions associated with such access, as well as any users that you may have blocked from your Vault. In the event of your death, your Vault Co-Owner (if any) may request the release of your Vault. If you do not have a Vault Co-Owner, or if your Vault Co-Owner is also deceased, then your Keyholder (if any) may request the release of your Vault. In order to be appointed as Keyholder for your account, such person must have a valid account and phone number with Prisidio, be added as an “Invited User” to your Vault, and have accepted your invitation to become a “Keyholder”. Note that Prisidio will not release your Vault to any blocked users. For more information, see Section 1.B. “Vault Co-Owner”, Section 1.D. “Keyholders”, and Section 8 “Death of a Vault Owner”. You expressly agree not to name Prisidio as a party in any dispute you have with any third-party related to User Content or Vault Access.

Vault Co-Owners: If a Vault Owner selects you as a Vault “Co-Owner” and your access has not been blocked, then you will have all the same rights and responsibilities with respect to the Vault as a Vault Owner except that Co-Owner (i) may not remove a Vault Owner’s access to the Vault or add, change, block, or delete a Co-Owner, and (ii) does not have payment responsibility for the Vault. The Co-Owner is responsible for the User Content that is uploaded, transmitted, posted to a Vault by Co-Owner, or otherwise made available for the Services by the Co-Owner. You acknowledge and agree that a Vault Owner may receive your location information when you access a Vault. You further acknowledge that a Vault Owner may terminate or temporarily block your access to the Owner’s Vault at any time and that you may lose access to any User Content that you provided to an Owner’s Vault. In the event of a Vault Owner’s death, you may request the release of a Vault Owner’s Vault to you within the account settings of the applicable Vault, provided that you (i) were not blocked by the Vault Owner and (ii) provide certain documentation, which includes, but may not be limited to, the Vault Owner’s death certificate. The Co-Owner must respond to Prisidio within designated time frames and complete the documentation in order to release the Vault, and if such requirements are not met, Co-Owner will be required to restart the process. Once the Vault is released, Prisidio will provide Co-Owner with one year of free access to the deceased Vault Owner’s Vault, subject to these Terms. During this time, Co-Owner may view or download User Content from the deceased Vault Owner’s Vault but may not delete, edit, or add new content. Prisidio will not be liable for any damages or losses that occur as a result of your use of the Services or loss of access to a Vault or from a third party’s actions. You expressly agree not to name Prisidio as a party in any dispute you have with any third-party related to User Content or Vault Access.
C. Invited Users: Vault Owners may provide Vault access to a third parties, each an “Invited User”. Invited Users access rights will be determined by the Vault Owner or Vault Co-Owner, as applicable.
