10. Tracking Activity
TrackOFF’s Tracking Activity Monitor provides an alert when a potential digital fingerprint is detected. TrackOFF determines whether a website is attempting to capture your digital fingerprint based on known techniques used to track online behavior. Because of the nature of how websites are developed and operated, however, it is possible that a web server may request information about your computer and web browser in a manner similar to an attempt to capture your digital fingerprint to assist in the rendering or operations of a website. Under those circumstances, TrackOFF may alert that a website is attempting to capture your fingerprint and increment the “Tracking Attempts Blocked” counter although tracking your activities may not be the intent of the website operator(s).
11. Browser History Clearing
TrackOFF’s history clearing feature deletes files and erases databases that are known to store browsing data. It is possible that the history clearing feature will not remove every possible file or database that may contain browsing history (because, for example, technology changes may allow for files to be stored in new locations). Thus, when TrackOFF provides the “browsing history cleared” alert, it is possible that certain browsing history data may still remain stored. We endeavor to continually update TrackOFF, and will add functionality to remove more files and databases that store browsing history data when we become aware of the threat.
12. Private Search
13. Privacy Condition Score Calculator
The TrackOFF desktop application may provide You with a “privacy condition score.” The privacy condition score can range from 0 to 100, and is based on a proprietary algorithm accounting for your settings and usage of the TrackOFF desktop application, including but not limited to Your use of filtering (i.e., alerts), VPN connection, cookie clearing and blocking, and browser usage. To learn more about how the Privacy Condition Score is calculated, please email [email protected].
14. App Checkup Rating System
The TrackOFF mobile application includes an “App Checkup” rating system feature that rates the privacy risks posed by each app installed on your mobile device. The App Checkup score ranges from 0 to 100, and is based on a proprietary algorithm accounting for the presence or absence of certain permissions granted to each mobile app (with each permission categorized as low, medium, or critical risk), as well as the cache maintained by each app. To learn more about how the App Checkup rating system works, please email [email protected]
15. Intellectual Property Protection
TrackOFF is protected by copyright and uses patent-pending technology. TrackOFF is a licensed product not for retail sale. This License does not provide you with any intellectual property rights in TrackOFF or other third party software included with the Software.
TrackOFF is licensed and not sold to you. This License does not give you any intellectual property rights in the TrackOFF, and does not grant you any license, or interest in any trade mark, trade name or service mark of Company. Company owns and retains all right, title and interest in and to TrackOFF, all copies or portions of TrackOFF, and any derivative works thereof.
16. VPN Service
Company offers VPN service through endpoints in eleven countries (and may add additional servers in the future). As part of the provision of our VPN service, we do not retain any behavioral information (e.g. the websites you visits, media you stream, etc.).

Any implied warranties that cannot be excluded are limited to thirty (30) days or to the shortest period permitted by applicable law, whichever is the greater. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties and conditions, therefore some of the above exclusions may not apply to customers located in those jurisdictions.
19. Limitation of Liability
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY/INSTITUTE, WHETHER IN TORT, CONTRACT OR OTHERWISE, WILL COMPANY OR ITS AFFILIATES, BUSINESS PARTNERS, OR EMPLOYEES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY DAMAGE FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF PRIVACY, LOSS OF CONFIDENTIAL OR OTHER INFORMATION, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION AND FOR ANY OTHER PECUNIARY OR OTHER LOSS WHATSOEVER) ARISING OUT OF, OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO, THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE TRACKOFF, THE PROVISION OF OR FAILURE TO PROVIDE SUPPORT SERVICES, OR OTHERWISE IN CONNECTION WITH ANY ASPECT OF THIS SOFTWARE, EVEN IN THE EVENT OF THE FAULT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY, BREACH OF CONTRACT OR BREACH OF WARRANTY, AND EVEN IF COMPANY OR ITS SUPPLIERS HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
IN NO EVENT WILL THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF COMPANY OR ITS SUPPLIERS WHETHER IN TORT, CONTRACT OR OTHERWISE, EXCEED THE AMOUNT ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU FOR TRACKOFF. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE LICENSE FEE REFLECTS THIS ALLOCATION OF RISK AND THAT THE LIMITATION SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PARTIES.
In the event that your jurisdiction does not allow for the exclusion of limitation of liability, some of the limitations above may not apply to you.

21. Third-Party Software
Other third-party software may be distributed together with the TrackOFF to assist in its installation and/or operations. Any and all such third party software may require notices and/or be subject to different license terms. By accepting this Agreement, you are also accepting the license terms, if any, under which the third party software is made available. This Agreement does not create a contractual relationship regarding your use of the third party software.
The VPN component of the Software may include some software programs that are licensed (or sublicensed) to the user under the GNU General Public License (GPL) or other similar free software licenses which, among other rights, permit the user to copy, modify and redistribute certain programs, or portions thereof, and have access for the source code “Open-Source Software”). If such licenses require that for any software, which is distributed to someone in an executable binary format, that the source code also be made available to those users, then the source code should be made available by sending the request to [email protected] or the source code is supplied with the Software. If any Open-Source Software licenses require that the Rightholder provide rights to use, copy, or modify an Open-Source Software Program that are broader than the rights granted in this Agreement, then such rights shall take precedence over the rights and restrictions herein.

You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and Company are each waiving the right to a trial by jury and the right to participate in a class or multi-party action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement and the termination of your License. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Agreement, and as administered by the AAA. You and Company agree that this Agreement involves interstate commerce and is subject to the Federal Arbitration Act.
2. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A CLASS MEMBER OR IN ANY REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR PROCEEDING.
