  6. Delivery of the encrypted email by Service is exclusively and solely governed by the recipient’s email address as specified by You. You are solely responsible for typing or spelling errors while specifying the recipient’s email address.
  7. Service is solely utilized by You at your sole discretion. You are solely and exclusively responsible for protecting confidential and secure access to the Service (Your ID and password).
