Acceptable Use Policy

Last Modified: August 14, 2018

We have a few rules on how our services can and cannot be used and this policy explains them (this “Acceptable Use Policy”). The rules apply to all of VRIFY’s services (the “Services”) and to all our users and clients regardless of their plans. These rules form part of our broader terms of service. If you see an undefined term here, it has the same definition as in the terms of service applicable to your Services (the “Terms”).

We may amend this Acceptable Use Policy from time to time in our sole discretion without notice to you. It is your responsibility to ensure that you and your Representatives comply at all times with the latest version of this Acceptable Use Policy. Please check this URL often to read the current version of the Acceptable Use Policy.
