General Terms & Conditions (T&C)


1. ZANGZE SERVICES PURPOSE & OVERVIEW

Zangze Group, AG (ZANGZE) provides email, chat, instant messaging, data file transfer, and transfer of pictures or videos communication (collectively, SERVICES) to any type of Companies / Groups (established formal "business, social, or governmental" Groups ; collectively "Group's) of as few as (2) people, or, as many as an unlimited number of people (User's), on a ZANGZE Internet Network Communications Platform through which individualized and unique Group Virtual Private Networks (VPN) are available to enable the Users of any Group to securely communicate with-and-between other Users of the same Group. This is accomplished by each User utilizing a special Zangze-issued, ISO-7816 - Certified, Three-Factor-Authentication ( 3FA ), RSA-Asymmetrically-Encoded, Multi-Layered 4096-bit, SHA 256-bit and AES 256-bit encoded - Internet - Enabled, Zangze Security Stick (ZSS ) USB-Device (with such Device known as a Zangze Security Stick ; ZSS or Stick or Token) that is connected through their laptop or desktop computer under an Agreement with ZANGZE (Agreement), based on the following Key Terms & Conditions (T&C) which automatically apply to all Users and Groups.


2. OBLIGATION OF COMPLETE REGISTRATION & DISCLOSURE BY COMPANIES OR GROUPS AND USERS

In order to use ZANGZE SERVICES, Companies or Groups (and all their Users) must be willing to provide true, correct, and complete personal data and full disclosure in accordance with ZSS application-form requirements, as well as to periodically update this registration data to remain true, correct, actual, and complete. If ZANGZE shall have substantive evidence to believe that any required User data is not true, or incorrect, or expired, or incomplete, then ZANGZE shall have the right to give notice to the User to immediately correct such data, and if not satisfactorily corrected by the User, to then delete such User account temporarily or permanently, and/or, to cancel it whenever it chooses.

Users further represent to ZANGZE that all content provided for SERVICES is solely owned by and provided by each User personally (or with the express authority of the Company or Group a User represents), and such content does not infringe upon any other individual's or organization's rights (including, without limitation, intellectual property rights), and is not defamatory, libelous, unlawful or otherwise unacceptable.

Each User needs to register on the ZANGZE Webpage (www.zangze.com), and fully complete the ZSS application providing ZANGZE with (but not limited to) their full legal Name, physical residence address, E-Mail address, Country-or-State-issued Photo ID or Passport copy, and their initial choice of a Password (for initial registration purposes only), and, to also pay for the SERVICES using ONLY a direct Bank-to-Bank Wire Transfer. Upon complete registration, the User receives confirmation from ZANGZE within 1-hour, and ZANGZE will send the ZSS Token and accompanying Smartcard and PIN to the User (by Post-delivery) within 20 business days after User payment is received and confirmed.


3. USER ACCESS TO ZANGZE SERVICES & USER LEGITIMIZATION

Access to the SERVICES is available to Users who are properly registered on ZANGZE (including having made full payment to ZANGZE for the SERVICES) and who are legitimatized and properly identified for use by ZANGZE. Currently, the following legitimization and identification data will be applicable :

a) ZANGZE-issued User Account number, and, (if Group) affiliated Group number ;
b) ZANGZE-issued User PIN number ;
c) User's self-chosen initial Password, and, User's self-chosen ultra-secure Changed-Password ;
d) ZANGZE-issued, Multi-Layered 4096-bit, RSA-Asymmetric Encrypted, Three-Factor-Authentication (3FA), ZSS Token.

ZANGZE has the right to introduce revised or additional ZSS Token data legitimization and identification requirements (and accompanying ZSS), and, to accordingly withdraw existing ones at any time. The User acknowledges and accepts that when their ZSS Token is activated for the first time, it will be allocated with a unique identification number which will be saved in the ZANGZE system and on the ZSS Token, in order to assure proper identification of such User and their ZSS Token at all times.

In the event that the User loses his ZSS Token, then they will be obligated to immediately notify ZANGZE of this, and, must order (and pay for) a new ZSS Token. The User herewith acknowledges and accepts that until ZANGZE has subsequently activated the new ZSS Token, no SERVICES will be available to the User utilizing such new device.

Additionally, ZANGZE does not store (or have access) to the User's Password after initial registration. Therefore, in the event that the User loses or forgets their self-chosen Password, Zangze cannot provide the User with their Password, and in such case, the entirety of the User's Data cannot be restored by ZANGZE (and will be lost), and, the User must order (and pay for) a new ZSS Token.


4. USER PASSWORD, PERSONAL SECURITY, AND RESPONSIBILITY

After full User registration is completed (and payment to ZANGZE has been made), each User receives a Registration number. Additionally, each User will receive (separately, by Post-delivery) their PIN code and ZSS Token. For maximum User security, it is most strongly recommended by ZANGZE that upon receipt of their ZSS Token, each User should immediately change their initial Password that they registered with, to a much more complex and uniquely private choice (Changed-Password) that is not easily ascertainable.

ZANGZE does not store (or have access to) the User's Password after initial registration, so the User is obligated to keep and remember his Password (or make sure that they can somehow recover it on their own if they forget). Otherwise, in the event that the User loses their Password, ZANGZE cannot recover it for the User, and in such case, the entirety of the User's Data cannot be restored by ZANGZE (and will be lost), and, the User must order (and pay for) a new ZSS Token.

Each User shall be solely and fully responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their Account number, PIN number, and Password and is responsible for all usage and activity on their account, including any use of the account by any third party (that they might choose to authorize, at their sole discretion, to use said account).

The responsibility for ALL information and data of any nature whatsoever that the User transmits, is exclusively born by the User from whom such contents has originated. This means that the User, and NOT ZANGZE, shall bear full responsibility for ALL contents entered, published, sent by e-mail, or sent through the SERVICES in any other way.

Any terrorist, fraudulent, abusive or otherwise illegal activity regarding any User account (or Group) by any party (including, but not limited to, the User) may be grounds for immediate termination by ZANGZE and immediate referral of the User and/or Group by ZANGZE to appropriate and applicable law enforcement agencies.

In the case of suspicion that unauthorized third parties have access to the User's legitimization parameters, the User must notify ZANGZE and change the respective legitimization parameters immediately.


5. "NO" ZANGZE ACCESS, COPY, OR CONTROL OF USER / GROUP MESSAGES & DATA

Because of the unique nature of the ZSS Token-to-ZSS Token (End-to-End) Multi-Layered 4096-bit RSA-Asymmetrically Encrypted, Three-Factor-Authentication (3FA) communication methodology being used between Users over each unique Group VPN, ZANGZE CANNOT ACCESS OR CONTROL the contents of User messages and data forwarded-and-transported using the SERVICES, or, STORE, RETAIN, OR RECOVER User messages and data AFTER IT IS DULY RECEIVED BY the intended User.

Therefore ZANGZE CANNOT AND DOES NOT ASSUME any responsibility for the correctness, appropriateness, and quality of such contents, especially regarding mistakes, incorrectness, or incompleteness regarding the contents, or losses and damages that occur during contents use which has been published and sent through the SERVICES in any way.

Furthermore, User acknowledges that they agree that ZANGZE shall not bear any responsibility or liability whatsoever for the deletion of data regarding any information, any communication, or other contents entered by a User and transmitted through the SERVICES that is subsequently received (by the intended User recipient).


6. USERS AND COMPANIES OR GROUPS PROHIBITIONS

18. DATA & MESSAGES TRANSFER PROTECTION, PRIVACY, AND SWISS SECURITY

The protection of User, Companies or Group data is of the highest importance to ZANGZE. ZANGZE shall make all reasonable efforts at all times to endeavor to protect User, Companies or Group data from unauthorized access, or destruction. In this regard, all of the following User and Group security components will be applicable :

a) ZANGZE-issued User Account number, and, affiliated Group number ;
b) ZANGZE-issued User PIN number ;
c) User's self-chosen initial Password, and, User's self-chosen ultra-secure Changed-Password ;
d) ZANGZE-issued, Multi-Layered 4096-bit, RSA-Asymmetric Encrypted, Three-Factor-Authentication (3FA), ZSS Token.
e) All User, Company or Group data is protected by the Swiss Federal Data Protection Act (DPA) and the SWISS Federal Data Protection Ordinance (DPO) which offers, arguably, the strongest privacy protection in the world for both personal individuals and corporate entities. ONLY a court order from the SWISS Cantonal Court of Geneva or the SWISS Federal Supreme Court can compel ZANGZE (and , the U.S. Government CANNOT compel ZANGZE) to release the extremely limited User information that ZANGZE has ;
f) User, Company or Group Messages and data are stored on (and transmitted through) the ZANGZE Servers in Switzerland in Multi-Layered 4096-bit encrypted format. They are also transmitted in encrypted format at all stages between the ZANGZE Servers and User's Sticks or smartphones, thus the risk of message interception by any "Man-in-the-Middle" is largely-and-nearly eliminated ;
g) 4096-BIT end-to-end multi-layered encryption is a method of transmitting data where only the Users communicating with each other can access and read the messages. By using this method of Asymmetric cryptographic keys, and individual Sticks that only the Users have control over, no eavesdroppers can decrypt and read the messages or data (AND, IN FACT, NOT EVEN the ZANGZE Servers that actually transmit the User and Group messages and data, can decrypt and read such messages and data).


19. NO INDIRECT WAIVER

ZANGZE's failure to use or effect any right or any T&C provisions is not, and shall not be interpreted as, a waiver of any nature whatsoever of any ZANGZE right or T&C provision.


20. VALID LAWS AND PLACE OF JURISDICTION

The T&C and the SERVICES offered by ZANGZE are governed by Swiss legislation and Swiss law, and any disputes whatsoever regarding them shall be resolved in accordance with the jurisdiction of applicable courts in Zug - Switzerland.
