When using the Service, you may be subject to any additional guidelines or rules applicable to specific services and features which may be posted online and notified to you from time to time (the "Guidelines"). All these Guidelines are hereby incorporated by reference into these Terms of Service.

Creating an account

To access certain features of the Service, you must set up an account with an email and password (your "Account"). We encourage you to use unique and strong passwords with your Account, and not to reuse your password elsewhere.

If we suspend your Account, you are not allowed to create another one without our permission.

If you have reason to believe that your Account is no longer secure (e.g., in the event of a loss, theft or unauthorized use of your Account), then you must immediately notify DareNET at abuse@darenet.org.

Proxy checks

We may perform checks for insecure proxies, or other harmful software on your computer when you access the Service. These checks may appear in firewall logs as a port scan. If we detect any such software, you may be blocked from further use of the Service temporarily or indefinitely.
