By downloading or using the Bluink Key mobile application (the “App”), these terms will automatically apply to you. Please read these Terms and Conditions (the "Terms") carefully before using the App operated by Bluink Ltd. “Bluink”, “us”, “we”, or “our” refer to Bluink Ltd. We are offering you this App for your own personal use without cost.
Your access to and use of the App is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all users.
Headings in this document are for ease of reading only and do not have any legal significance.
By accessing or using the App you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms then you may not have access to the App.
Bluink Key is a password manager and strong authenticator. The Bluink Key mobile application allows you to manage any personal information on your smartphone, including account names, passwords, secret keys, credit card numbers, and many other types of information. These credentials are encrypted with AES-256 bit encryption and unlocked with your Bluink password. Since this content is stored locally on your smartphone, we do not have access to any information or data that you input into the Bluink Key mobile application.
Bluink grants you personal, limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-transferable license to download and install the App on one or more mobile devices solely for your own personal or internal business purposes. This license does not entitle you to receive hard-copy documentation, telephone assistance, or enhancements or updates to the App, though we may provide any of the foregoing in our sole discretion. You may not incorporate, integrate, or otherwise include the App or any portion thereof into any other software, program, or product. Further, with respect to the App accessed through or downloaded from the Apple App Store, you will only use the App on an Apple branded product that runs the iOS (Apple’s proprietary operating system) and as permitted by the “Usage Rules” set forth in the Apple App Store Terms of Service. Further, with respect to the App accessed through or downloaded from the Google Play Store, you will only use the App on a device running the Android operating system as permitted by the “Usage Rules” set forth in the Google Play Store Terms.
You acknowledge and agree that Bluink has no obligation to correct any defects or errors within the App or provide any support services, regardless of whether you inform Bluink of such defects or errors, or Bluink otherwise is, or becomes, aware of such defects or errors.
While the Stored Data in the App is protected on your smartphone or mobile device with strong encryption, Bluink cannot and does not guarantee the security, completeness, integrity, or accuracy of any stored data or that the stored data will not be corrupted or lost. You acknowledge that Bluink does not store any data beyond the mobile app and the backups you make. This data cannot be recovered by Bluink.
Backups may not be accessible or recoverable if (a) you fail to follow Bluink’s technical requirements, including upgrading the mobile application as required; (b) you uninstall the App (you need the app installed to get the stored data); or (c) you forget your master password to log in to your account and/or you forget the master password used at the time the backup was created.
Random Password Generator
The App password manager functions allow you to determine your own passwords. You may alternatively use the random password generator built into the App. The complexity and length of passwords generated by the App are determined by you, the user. Complex passwords are less likely to be compromised/hacked than simple passwords people commonly use; however, we make no guarantees regarding the security of any passwords that are generated by the App.
Change Password Online
Bluink makes no guarantees that the Change Password Online feature will properly change the credentials in connection with every website (or third party mobile app) or that the App will save your old and/or new password. Bluink makes no guarantees that the website you visit for the Change Password Online feature is the correct website. Bluink is not liable for your inability to use any site (or third party mobile app) resulting from your use of our password manager.
Bluink Ltd. employees, partners, licensors, contractors, and personnel are not responsible for lost credentials or data if the user does not make frequent backups, nor are we responsible for the loss of credentials if the user is unable to access their credentials (i.e., forgot their master password). Further, we are not responsible for loss or damage, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, or punitive damages, including without limitation, economic loss, loss or damage to electronic media or data, or other intangible losses.
Bluink does not have access to any information or data that you input into the App. Because of this, it is impossible for us to recover any information stored in the App including a user’s master password.
By using the App, you agree not to modify, prepare derivative works of, or reverse engineer our products including but not limited to our mobile applications, hardware devices, and software.
