6. User Registration, Passwords

During registration by a User, the User must provide current, complete, accurate information in the registration section of the App and/or Site and/or Services.

Our Service is not directed to individuals under 18. We do not knowingly collect personal information from users under the age of 18. If you become aware that a minor has provided us with personal information, please contact us at support@doculife.com If we become aware that a minor under 18 has provided us with personal information, we will take steps to delete such information.

You will further update and keep that information current as needed. We will provide each registered User a unique link to login to the App and/or the Site and/or Services. Each User is solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their login and account information. You will notify us of any unauthorised activity, or any other breach of security you become aware of.

You must not share your login or password with others. Sharing login information is a violation of this Agreement and may result in immediate termination of your account.

In connection with each document or other digital object stored using the Services you may nominate a beneficiary for that document and release conditions for that document. The User is responsible for ensuring the accuracy of information provided regarding a nominated beneficiary. If you do not nominate a specific beneficiary then the default beneficiary and default document or other digital object release conditions you nominated on registering to use the Service will apply for that document or other digital object.

For each document or other digital object stored in the Service a beneficiary key will be generated to be retained by the User and provided to the beneficiary for that document or other digital object.

7. Retrieval by Beneficiary

If release conditions occur in relation to a document or other digital object the beneficiary for that document or other digital object may apply to the applicable escrow agent for release of the contents. Subject to satisfaction of the release conditions and the User or beneficiary having a current subscription for the use of the Service, the escrow agent will release the public key for the document to the beneficiary. The public key together with the beneficiary key can be used by the Beneficiary to obtain access to the document. Each User and beneficiary is responsible for maintenance of beneficiary keys for each document stored using the Services.
