Terms of Service
Last Updated: April 1, 2018
Whitehat Computer Forensics, LLC – d. b. a. HashSets.com (“we”, “us” and terms of similar meaning) provides this web site and the services provided by or through this web site to you subject to these terms and conditions of use (these “Terms”).
In these terms we call this web site, any successor web sites (together, the “Site”) and the Hash Search Engine, Hash Set Databases and Hash Sets (MD5, SHA1 and SHA256 cryptographic hash algorithms) which we refer to as the “Services”. The Services are described in detail on the Site.
Please read these Terms carefully before using the Services. By accessing or using the Services you agree to be legally bound by these Terms and all terms, policies and guidelines incorporated by reference in these Terms. If you do not agree with these Terms in their entirety, you may not use the Services.
In these Terms users of the Services, whether they are our customers or their representatives, are called “Users”.
HashSets.com reserves the right to change or modify any of the terms and conditions contained in these Terms, or any policy or guideline applicable to the Services, at any time and in its sole discretion. If we do so, we will notify you at the email address you provide in your registration information, if any, or we will post a notice in our Hash Sets visible to you the next time you access our Hash Sets. If you do not agree with the changes, you can cancel your account with us without further obligation, except for the amount due for the balance of the billing period in which you cancel your account (if your billing period is monthly, we will prorate your account to the nearest month-end after cancellation). Unless otherwise specified, any changes or modifications will be effective immediately upon posting of the revisions on the Site or the date such email is sent, and your continued use of the Services after such time will constitute your acceptance of such changes or modifications. You should from time to time review the Terms and any policies and documents incorporated in them to understand the terms and conditions that apply to your use of the Services. The Terms will always show the ‘last updated’ date at the top. If you do not agree to any amended Terms, you must stop using the Services. If you have any questions about the Terms, please email us at Support [at] HashSets.com.
The Services are for your own use only. You may not resell, lease or provide them in any other way to anyone else, except as expressly permitted and described in the Services License Agreement.

3. Fees; Charges; Taxes
Fees and any other charges for the use of the Services are described on the Site. They may change from time to time. If we change them, the website and membership payment pages will reflect accordingly. If they do change, your continued use of the Services, as the case may be, after the change indicates your agreement with the new fees and charges after the effective date of the change. Any change to fees and other charges will not be applicable to the billing period in which the change occurs.
You are responsible for all taxes applicable to the fees and charges in any applicable jurisdiction.

7. Providing a Reliable and Secure Service
If you have spent any time reviewing the Services, you will hopefully have noticed that we take reliability and security seriously. We put a great deal of effort into ensuring that our service operates all the time, and that it is a secure environment. We use what we believe to be “best-of-class” hosting services and security technologies and services that we believe provide you with a secure and safe environment. However, no system is perfectly secure or reliable, the Internet is an inherently insecure medium, and the reliability of hosting services, Internet intermediaries, your Internet service provider, and other service providers cannot be assured. When you use this Service, you accept these risks, and the responsibility for choosing to use a technology that does not provide perfect security or reliability.
8. No Responsibility for Third-Party Services, Sites or Content
As a service to our users, the Site may contain links to third-party Web sites (“Third-Party Sites”) or third-party content (“Third-Party Content”) and may provide third-party services (“Third-Party Services”), including payment processors and other payment intermediaries that you may use in connection with your use of the Services. You use Third-Party Sites, Third-Party Content (together, the “Third Party Materials”) or Third-Party Services at your own risk.
HashSets.com makes no claim or representation regarding Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Services, and provides them or links to them only as a convenience. Inclusion in the Services of Third-Party Materials does not imply HashSets.com’s endorsement, adoption or sponsorship of, or affiliation with, such Third-Party Materials. HashSets.com accepts no responsibility for reviewing changes or updates to, or the quality, content, policies, nature or reliability of Third-Party Materials, or Web sites linking to the Services. When you leave the Services, our terms and policies no longer govern, and when you use Third-Party Services their terms and policies apply. You should review applicable terms and policies, including privacy and data gathering practices, of any Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Services, and should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any transaction with any third party.
