Keeper Security, in its sole discretion, may remove content and block user access to any content that it determines to be illegal, threatening, pornographic, abusive, obscene or in violation of another party's intellectual property.
Your Master Password
You hereby understand that upon using the Software, you will be required to create a "Master Password." The Master Password will be used by you and only you.
You are responsible for maintaining the security of your Master Password and Keeper records entered, imported and exported using the Software.

Again, it is imperative to not forget your Master Password since this is required to gain access to your records stored in Keeper.
Maintenance of Your Keeper Records
Micro-data and files stored in your Keeper vault are referred to as "Keeper Records." Keeper Security will maintain an encrypted binary file of your Keeper records on Keeper Security's Cloud Security Vault™, provided that you are a paid-subscriber of the Software. The binary is created when you backup your records and is stored in the event that you need to recover your information due to local system crash, damage, loss or hack attempt that results in the self-destruction of your records.
If your subscription expires and you choose not to renew your subscription within 90 days, Keeper Security reserves the right to delete any Keeper records contained in your account that have files (e.g. documents, photos, videos, etc.) contained in them. Notice will be sent to you prior to termination based on the email address associated with your Keeper account. Expired user accounts convert to a Free User account.
A Free User of the software is permitted to use Keeper on one mobile device without the ability to backup, restore, share or save their records outside of the one mobile device. If the device or data is lost or stolen, a Free User will not be able to restore their records. Free User accounts are allowed to upload and store five (5) files in their Keeper vault subject to a maximum storage size of 100MB. After this file limit, a Free User will be required to purchase a paid storage plan.
If you are a free user who has not utilized the Software within 12 months, Keeper Security reserves the right to terminate and delete your account. Notice will be sent to you prior to termination based on the email address associated with your Keeper account.
Violation of these responsibilities and restrictions may result in the termination of this Agreement.
