PLEASE READ CAREFULLY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS SEARCHSAFE END-USER LICENSE AGREEMENT (THE "EULA", “Terms of Service” OR “AGREEMENT”) BEFORE DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING, ENABLING, OR USING (COLLECTIVELY “USE” OR “IN USE” OR “USING”) ANY SOFTWARE AND/OR SERVICES AND/OR FEATURES PROVIDED BY THIS WEBSITE (COLLECTIVELY, THE "SOFTWARE", “SERVICES”).
THE SOFTWARE IS A SERVICE OF EIGHTPOINT TECHNOLOGIES LTD, (“EIGHTPOINT”) A CAYMAN ISLANDS COMPANY, DISTRIBUTTED UNDER AN EXCLUSIVE LICENSE BY SEARCHSAFE, (“SEARCHSAFE”, “WE”, “US”) A CYPRUS COMPANY. THIS IS A LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN SEARCHSAFE AND YOU.
THESE TERMS OF SERVICE REQUIRE THE USE OF CYPRUS ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES RATHER THAN A COURT OR JURY TRIAL OR CLASS ACTION. All differences of any nature that may arise in relation to this contract between the contracting parties, shall be referred to arbitration by a single Arbitrator in accordance with the provisions of the Arbitration Law of Cyprus, Cap 4. The Arbitrator will be proposed by the Arbitration Service of the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry and must be approved by the contracting parties. In case of disagreement between the contracting parties on the proposed Arbitrator, the Arbitrator will be appointed in accordance with the provisions of the Arbitration Law of Cyprus, Cap 4.
If you agree to this EULA on behalf of another person or legal entity including, without limitation, another business, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that entity to this EULA and your agreement to this EULA will be treated as the agreement of the entity. In that event, "you" and "your" will refer and apply to that entity. If you do not accept this EULA in its entirety, then SearchSafe is unwilling to sublicense the Software to you and you may not access or Use any of the Software. Any Use of the Software by you under these circumstances will be considered a violation of intellectual property laws and may subject you to civil and/or criminal penalties.

We reserve the right to change these Terms of Service from time to time without notice.

This Agreement will also govern any software upgrades and/or updates provided by SearchSafe that upgrade and/or supplement the Software, unless such upgrades and/or updates are accompanied by a separate license, in which case the terms of that separate license will apply.
How SearchSafe Works.
After you agree to these Terms of Service, download, and install the SearchSafe extension, the Software protects your privacy by detecting searches from certain search engines you visit that may be tracked by those search engines and tied to your personal information. The Software then intercepts those searches from those search engines and redirects them to SearchSafe's privacy-enhanced search engine. BY INSTALLING AND USING THE SOFTWARE, YOU EXPRESS AGREE TO THIS INTERCEPTION AND REDIRECTION OF YOUR SEARCH QUERIES. THE SOFTWARE stopS your request on search engines that are known to track you, and then re-routing your search to our privacy based search engine and search results page.
