Our Services are not intended for distribution to or use in any country where such distribution or use would violate local law or would subject us to any regulations in another country. We reserve the right to limit our Services in any country. If you have specific questions about these Terms, please contact us at email@example.com.

The following provisions will survive termination of your relationship with Ai-Fi.net: “Licenses,” “Disclaimers,” “Limitation of Liability,” “Resolving dispute,” “Availability” and “Ending these Terms,” and “General”.
Ai-Fi.net utilizes end-to-end encryption to provide secure email, private messaging, and Internet calling services to users worldwide (“Services”). Your calls and messages are always encrypted, so they can never be shared or viewed by anyone but yourself and the intended recipients.
Account Information. When you first apply for an Ai-Fi.net account in order to use our services, you register with us an account name or identifier of your choosing. By design, your Ai-Fi Account identifier is not associated with any of your PII (Personally Identifiable Information), such as your emails, phone numbers, credit card numbers, social security number, or any other information traceable to your real name or person. All your interaction with your circle of other Ai-Fi users is end-to-end encrypted without the risk of leaking your PII to Ai-Fi.net and any other third parties. This protection of end-to-end encryption is effected by multiple pairs of keys based on public key cryptography. The associated private keys are stored on your private devices physically and exclusively that are further protected by your own private passcode.
Ai-Fi PID (Public Interface Directory). Ai-Fi.net maintains a directory for our users to declare their public interface parameters in order for them to receive requests from entities external to their Ai-Fi Domain. The following classes of information may be entered into this Ai-Fi PID:
This directory is logically and physically separated from the account database management system internal to Ai-Fi.net. To enter data into this Ai-Fi Public Interface Directory, the owning Ai-Fi accounts are individually authorized by Ai-Fi.net without recording the linkage between the Ai-Fi Account and its accounts published through this Public Interface Directory.
Email Service Provider Interfaces. To support our Ai-Fi Mail service, we utilize OAuth 2.0 authentication with your email service providers, with whom your email addresses are registered originally, in order to authorize your entering your email addresses into the Ai-Fi Public Interface Directory. Once authenticated and proven that you are the rightful owner of your email accounts, you are then allowed to publish data through the Ai-Fi PID in order to facilitate your secure email correspondence with your circle of friends. The actual email sending/receiving are conducted through the standard SMTP/IMAP interfaces per the service requirements of individual service providers and our Ai-Fi Mail client software you've installed. They are carried out end-to-end without involving other cloud services of Ai-Fi.net for reasons of security and privacy, except the information published and managed by the users themselves in the Ai-Fi Public Interface Directory. Ai-Fi.net does not involve in the transmission or storage of your emails. Ai-Fi.net does not store in its servers your PKI key pairs, passwords, phone numbers, or any other credentials necessary to access your emails with your service providers. Those private and personal email credentials reside physically and exclusively on the processing platform where your client software is operated from. You can revoke the OAuth access, delete your published entries in Ai-Fi Public Directory, or uninstall our Ai-Fi Mail application at any time.
Below is a list of currently supported email service providers:
Messages. Ai-Fi.net cannot decrypt or otherwise access the content of your Ai-Fi Mail, messages, or calls. Ai-Fi.net sometimes queues end-to-end encrypted messages on its servers for delivery to devices that are temporarily offline (e.g. a phone whose battery has died). Your message history is stored on your own devices.
Additional technical information is stored on our servers, including randomly generated authentication tokens, keys, push tokens, and other material that is necessary to establish calls and transmit messages. Ai-Fi.net limits this additional technical information to the minimum required to operate the Services.
Private Network Configuration and Traffic. If you use Ai-Fi.net's Ai-Fi Doman security functions or services, Ai-Fi.net will not log any of your data traffic or the content of your communications. We maintain a copy of your Ai-Fi Domain configuration, partially encrypted for your privacy protection based on your account credentials, on our servers in order to provide the traditional VPN routing and remote access functions for you and your contacts. Your contacts connected to your Ai-Fi Domain through our remote access functions are maintained on your ACL (Access Control List), for which Ai-Fi.net has no visibility. There is no access logs maintained by Ai-Fi.net.
Contacts. The Ai-Fi client software you install on your devices can optionally discover indirectly which contacts in your address book are Ai-Fi.net users, using the Ai-Fi.net PID service. Information from the contacts on your device may be briefly transmitted to the PID service in order to determine which of your contacts are registered. Ai-Fi.net servers are not involved in discovering your circle of contacts except the Public Interface Directory, which only provides fragmentary record about individual public accounts without any knowledge of their affiliaiton.
User Support. If you contact Ai-Fi.net User Support, any personal data you may share with us is kept only for the purposes of researching the issue and contacting you about your case.
Managing your information. You can manage your personal information in Ai-Fi.net’s application or configuration Settings. For example, you can update your profile information or choose to enable additional privacy features.
Third Parties. We work with third parties to provide some of our Services. For example, our Third-Party Providers send a verification code to your phone number when you register for our Services. These providers are bound by their Privacy Policies to safeguard that information. If you use other Third-Party Services like YouTube, Spotify, Giphy, etc. in connection with our Services, their Terms and Privacy Policies govern your use of those services.
Other instances where Ai-Fi.net may need to share your data.
We will only disclose the limited user data we possess if we receive notice from the authorities we are legally obligated to recognize. If permitted by law, we will always contact a user first before any data disclosure. We may from time to time, contest court orders if there is a public interest in doing so. In such situations, the Company will not comply with the court order until all legal or other remedies have been exhausted.
Ai-Fi.net subscriber account information. Ai-Fi.net only maintains the following information about our subscribers:
Stored on the persistent storage of Ai-Fi.net central servers, these are the only types of information that fall within the categories listed at Electronic Communications Privacy Act, 18 U.S.C. § 2703(c)(2).
Architecturally, the bedrock of Ai-Fi.net support for Ai-Fi Domain VPN functions and for private affiliations between individual Ai-Fi accounts is built on the following design principles:
The design principle #1 is implemented through the construct of the AC (AnonymousCloud). The principle #2 is implemented by offering an audit mechanism for our internal Ai-Fi Account databases and the PID (Public Interface Directory), based on the open framework of CT (Certificate Transparency), involving one or many CT Logs, with the lightweight CT Auditor components built into our Ai-Fi client software. Those adopted CT Logs are immutable, reflect the content of all account information published by our users through Ai-Fi.net, and make all Ai-Fi.net operations transparent to our users who issue status entries to those CT Logs when related account data has been changed and periodically conduct integrity checks on their published data for potential unwarranted modifications. These audit trails recorded in the selected CT Logs are managed by our users and not under the purview of Ai-Fi.net.
