If you use our Digital Vault and associated services (Digital Vault Services), then in addition to the Website Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy, you agree to the following additional terms and conditions (the DV User Agreement):

1. Definitions

Data means all Personal Data, User Data and Payment Data.

Personal Data means information that identifies a specific living person (not a company, legal entity, or machine) and is transmitted to or accessible through the Digital Vault Services.

Recipient(s) mean your next of kin or executors nominated by you to receive access to your Digital Vault on your death.

User Data means information that you upload to your Digital Vault, including but not limited to files, documents, images, videos, emails, bills and informational records

2. Our Partner Company

You acknowledge and agree that:

  1. our Digital Vault Services are partly dependant on our partner company, The Prepared Company Pty Ltd trading as BePrepared ABN 90 643 555 711 (Partner Company);
  2. these terms are subject to any agreement between us and the Partner Company;
  3. Data may be stored either in Australia or overseas; and
  4. while we do our best to protect your Data, including ensuring all Data stored with us is encrypted and using multi-factor authentication, we or the Partner Company may be subject to third party hackers or other malware attacks. We are not liable for the loss of any of your data in this regard.

3. Responsibility for uploads

  1. You know your Recipients better than we do, and you are responsible for your relationship with them. We accept no responsibility for the items or communications you create or upload, or that your Recipients receive from your use or misuse of the Digital Vault.
  2. We cannot verify whether any particular piece of information, file, record, or other data (each a “Item”) is accurate or correct, or whole. You are responsible for knowing and managing whether an Item assigned for your Recipient is erroneous (such as uploading a file for a Recipient when you meant to upload another) or suspicious (such as unusual or large data size, or an odd glitch in the document when this does not usually occur). If you are unsure if an Item is erroneous or corrupt, you agree to research the Item and, if necessary, delete and recreate it if found to be erroneous. You are solely responsible for any losses you incur due to erroneous or corrupt Items in connection with your use of the Services.

4. Privacy and Data security

  3. We may disclose your Personal Information (as that term is defined in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth)) to our related entities or to third parties located in countries where the laws on the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information are less stringent or protective than Australia. If you enter this agreement, you consent to the disclosure of your Personal Information overseas and Australia Privacy Principle 8.1 (as set out in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth)) will not apply to this disclosure.
  4. We will ensure that our Partner Company maintains commercially reasonable administrative, technical, and physical procedures to protect User Data and Personal Data stored in their servers from unauthorised access, accidental loss, modification, or breach, and we will comply with applicable laws and network rules when they handle User and Personal Data. However, no security system is impenetrable and we cannot, and do not, guarantee that unauthorised parties will never be able to defeat such security measures or misuse any Data in their possession. You provide User Data and Personal Data to Bare and the Partner Company with the understanding that any security measures we provide may not be appropriate or adequate for your personal circumstances, and you agree to implement reasonable security controls and any additional controls that meet your specific requirements.
