Acceptable Use Policy

  1. 1. Introduction

    1.1. We provide the Canarytokens service free of charge. We do so as a public service because we believe that everyone should be able to detect attackers and compromises.

    1.2. We will work hard to keep the service up and running.

    1.3. We love technical creativity, so you can use the service for any lawful purpose, but there are some ways you can never use Canarytokens.

    1.4. If you use the service for a purpose that we don’t allow (covered below) or help others (people or algorithms) do so, you breach the policy, and we may suspend or terminate your use of the service. (There is a good chance you are also a jerk).

  2. 2. What we do with your information

    2.1. We don't sell the information you provide to us when you use this service.

    2.2. We sometimes make use of third parties when providing the service (like mail delivery via Mailgun or use of AWS for hosting). We keep them to a minimum, we vet them carefully, and we never give away more information than is needed to make the service work.

  3. 3. Your actions have consequences

    3.1. You understand that your actions could have legal consequences and may result in criminal or civil liability. We do not endorse, take responsibility, or accept liability for your actions.

  4. 4. What you can’t do

    4.1. You may not use, or help others to use, Canarytokens for any illegal or harmful purposes.

    4.2. You may not use, or help others to use, Canarytokens to interfere unlawfully with the connections or security of networks, systems, or other users.

    4.3 You may not use (or abuse) the system to cause a disruption to other users.

  5. 5. Investigation and enforcement

    5.1. We will investigate any potential breaches of this policy. During and after an investigation, we can alter or remove any content that breaches this policy and (while we are aware that snitches get stitches) may share this content or related information with any relevant third party, including law enforcement agencies.

  6. 6. Changes

    6.1. We may change the terms of this policy at any time. We will notify you of any changes by placing a notice on the legal page of this website. If you disagree with the change, you must stop using the services. If you continue to use the services following notification of a change to the terms, the changed terms will apply to you, and you will be deemed to have accepted such terms.
