By registering an account with JabberX and any of its associated global doamins, you agree to the following terms.
We do not, and do not want, to gather or store information about you, log your conversations, or engage in any other behavior that would compromise your privacy and security in any way.
However, certain services provided by us, especially the XMPP/Jabber services, need to store information that allows us to operate our services, e.g. we need to store passwords so that you can logon to our services.
We do not automatically gather any personal information like your name or address. The only exceptions are information that you may voluntarily submit.
JabberX operates using the least amount of personal information as possible. In order to successfully operate our XMPP servers, the only "user data" that we need to store is a username and password. We have no record of phone numbers. We do not require your screen name to be your real name, nor will we ever ask for your name.
Your email address is not required for registration. Entering your email address during registration will allow you to change or reset your password if you ever forget it. If you do not have a registered email address, you will never be able to reset your account password.
The following information is stored by our servers:
Our XMPP servers do not store any chat history. A small buffer is maintained when messages are sent to offline users. This buffer is automatically deleted after 7 days. Once the user reads the messages in their queue, the messages are removed from our servers.
We have absolutely no storge of historical messages or logs of any kind.
The JabberX servers do NOT keep an archive of your chat logs. Unfortunately, this means that your messages will not synchronize to multiple devices. We realize this may be inconvenient but we do not believe in sacrificing security for convenience.
With the exception of offline buffer messages, user chat messages are never retained for any period of time. Offline buffer messages are automatically purged once they are received by the recipient, or automatically after 7 days.
JabberX does not store the following:
The service provider provides the services without any promise of performance. Service availability is not guaranteed. It is not promised that a service rendered can be used for any purpose.
The user bears the damage caused by the fact that a service is not or was not available, does not meet his expectations or data is lost. The user is aware of the risk that it is possible, for example due to computer break-ins, that data stored about him could accidentally get into the hands of third parties. The service provider assumes no liability for this, insofar as he is not responsible for this through gross negligence.
The service provider acts with the service as an intermediary of messages both in the form of instant messages and in the form of published web content. The legal responsibility for these messages lies exclusively with the sender of the same.
If published messages, i.e. in particular content intended for publication on the web, do not comply with the applicable laws of the Federal Republic of Germany, or any other European Nation, they will be removed from the service immediately after a corresponding notification if the legal violation is recognizable as soon as this is the case the service provider is possible due to the real circumstances.
The Service may contain links to other resources and such resources may be transmitted through the Service. Despite careful content control, no liability is assumed for the content of external sources. The operators of the linked pages are solely responsible for their content.
The service provider is not liable for intentional or grossly negligent damage caused by its vicarious agents.
Under applicable data protection legislation, in certain circumstances, you have rights concerning your personal data. You have a right to:
Unfortunately, none of that matters because we do not store any personal information.
**We can't give you or change what we don't have.**
The user can delete his user account at any time using a corresponding chat program (client). It is the user's responsibility to terminate all further service registrations (e.g. transports) made via the user account beforehand.
After the end of use of the service (e.g., account deletion) the user address is released again immediately and can be used by another user. If the new user of an address uses services that were registered by the old user but were not canceled by the old user when the user account was deleted, the service provider assumes no liability for any damage caused as a result.
JabberX operates in countries that have data retention laws. It would be illegal for us to retain data longer then directly necessary for running this service.
It is possible that a public court can order us to cooperate with law enforcement agencies to help with a criminal investigation. Such an order is only possible if the supposed criminal offense is punishable by at least a year in prison.
Cooperation means that we would be legally forced to cooperate with law enforcement and provide any and all information related to a specific account, which means handing over any stored data.
JabberX, by design, does not store any data making any and all law enforcement requests completely worthless.
