Notice to United States Government End Users.
- Statutory Classifications. The Software is commercial computer software under DFARS Section 227.7202, the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations Supplement (codified under Chapter 2 in Title 48, Code of Federal Regulations).

- Governance and Prohibitions. Any use, modification, reproduction, release, performance, display, or disclosure of the Software and accompanying Documentation by the United States Government is governed solely by this Agreement and is prohibited except to the extent expressly permitted by this Agreement.
The Software may contain features and functionality that allow you to protect sensitive information in files and folders on your Computer.
- Password or Biometric Records Required. For most Software, you must provide a password to encrypt and protect your sensitive information.

- Encryption Security. Encryption without a strong password (at least seven characters with at least one number, one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter, and a special character such as a hyphen) can reduce the protection that the Software offers. The encryption provided by the Software should protect your information from the average Computer user. We are not liable to you if you fail to use a strong password or if the encryption is broken.
- Hard-Drive Problems. It may not be possible to unencrypt information that has been encrypted if your hard drive fails or has bad sectors. We are not liable for any losses you suffer.
