Terms & Privacy Policy

Effective as of June 5, 2019

Updated June 5, 2019

Save and OpenArchive are designed to never collect or store any sensitive information. Media preserved by the Save mobile application cannot be accessed by us or unauthorized third parties because there is no centralized database or server that manages your media and we use Orbot and Tor for private and secure data transmission between the application and the destination server. If you choose to use the Internet Archive or other public servers as a destination, the information you share with them such as your email address, media, metadata, etc. will be public. Our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy are available below.

We provide our services on an “as is” basis without any express or implied warranties, including, but not limited to, warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, non-infringement, and freedom from computer virus or other harmful code. Save does not warrant that any information provided by us is accurate, complete, or useful, that our services will be operational, error-free, secure, or safe, or that our services will function without disruptions, delays, or imperfections. We do not control, and are not responsible for, controlling how or when our users use our services.

You release us, affiliates, directors, officers, employees, partners, and agents (together, “save parties”) from any claim, complaint, cause of action, controversy, or dispute (together, “claim”) and damages, known and unknown, relating to, arising out of, or in any way connected with any such claim you have against any third parties.

Limitation of liability.

The save parties will not be liable to you for any lost profits or consequential, special, punitive, indirect, or incidental damages relating to, arising out of, or in any way in connection with our terms, us, or our services, even if the save parties have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Our aggregate liability relating to, arising out of, or in any way in connection with our terms, us, or our services will not exceed one hundred dollars ($100). The foregoing disclaimer of certain damages and limitation of liability will apply to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. The laws of some states or jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion or limitation of certain damages, so some or all of the exclusions and limitations set forth above may not apply to you. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in our terms, in such cases, the liability of the save parties will be limited to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.

Our Services or our partners’ services (“partners” include the Tor Network and the Internet Archive) may be interrupted, including for maintenance, upgrades, or network or equipment failures.

Save may update the Terms from time to time. When we update our Terms, we will update the “Last Modified” date associated with the updated Terms.

Our Terms cover the entire agreement between you and Save regarding our Services. If you do not agree with our Terms, you should stop using our Services.

If we fail to enforce any of our Terms, that does not mean we waive the right to enforce them. If any provision of the Terms is deemed unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that provision shall be deemed severable from our Terms and shall not affect the enforceability of the remaining provisions. 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 info[at]
