The file will be stored there for a limited time period that is based on your service plan. pCloud reserves the right to limit the size of the Trash on pCloud's sole discretion. The Trash has a size limit equal to the storage quota, included in your current pCloud account, up to 2 TB.

We can undertake measures, in our discretion, if you are determined to be a repeat infringer.

Those measures on our part may include limiting part of the functionalities of the pCloud service you are using.
Among other services and applications, pCloud also provides an encryption service under the trademark pCloud Crypto. This app performs client-side encryption, which means that the encryption process is performed on the user’s device and the plain text files never leave the user’s computer. This ensures zero-knowledge privacy for the user’s data, which means that we, as a service provider, have absolutely no information about the content users store in their accounts, such as file names or file types. The user content is stored in their Crypto Folder, which is locked and unlocked using the so-called Passphrase. pCloud has no access to user’s Passphrase, and once lost, it can never be restored.
In these Terms, "Encrypted Content" shall be used to refer to all content and information that you store or upload using the Encryption Service. All Encrypted Content shall be owned by you or the person who made it available to you to store or upload via the Service. You retain full ownership to your files, folders, directories, including their metadata (file names, thumbnails, etc.) and any information you submit to pCloud for encryption purposes. We don’t claim any ownership to any of your content. These Terms do not grant us any rights to your content or intellectual property except for the following limited rights that are needed to run the Service: we may redundantly store or backup your respective data as set below and we might use trusted third parties, like our collocated data center, to provide the Encryption Service. You give us the permission for all and any actions that we need to undertake to provide the Service. In particular, but not limited to, you agree that pCloud may transfer your data to its servers and between its servers. pCloud states that your encrypted content, encryption key, and passphrase used by you or otherwise submitted to the Service, are stored in an encrypted or non-invertible form. Your Encrypted Content cannot be decrypted or inverted by pCloud or any third party. Your Encrypted Content can only be decrypted or inverted by you. When using our Encryption service, you undertake that:
- you own all rights to your Encrypted Content and you have the right to give pCloud the rights described above;
- you have paid and will pay in full any fees or other payments that may be related to the use of your Encrypted Content and the Service; and
- your Encrypted Content does not infringe the intellectual property rights, privacy rights, publicity rights, or other legal rights of any third party.
In some countries, using encryption services may be limited, restricted or forbidden by law. Before subscribing to our Encryption Service - pCloud Crypto - make sure that using such a service is permitted and legal in your state of residence. If any case, pCloud cannot be held liable for any claims that may be filed against you in relation to using such a service. By agreeing with the present Terms and Conditions you confirm that you will at all times and in any instances hold pCloud harmless of any claims that may arise in relation to your personal decision to use an Encryption Service, in this case, pCloud Crypto.

The Site and Services may contain features and functionalities that may link you or provide you with access to third-party content or services independent of pCloud, including websites, directories, servers, networks, systems, information and databases, applications, software, programs, products or services, and the Internet as a whole.

Subject to this, pCloud may, in its discretion, attempt to assist in the resolution of such a dispute, but in doing so it does not undertake any obligation to do so, and will not be subject to any liability arising either from the conduct giving rise to the dispute or from any efforts to resolve it.
Disclaimer and Waiver of Liability
In the event that you have a dispute with any other user of the Site or Services or with any third party whose content or services you have accessed through the Sites or Services, you hereby release pCloud, its officers, employees, agents and successors in rights from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes. If you are a resident of California, U.S.A., you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which stipulates the following: A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH, IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.
Some of our Services are free, whereas others are subject to a fee. For a full description of the different Services that we offer, along with the different prices applicable, please see the Pricing (https://www.pcloud.com/cloud-storage-pricing-plans.html) page on the Site.
pCloud users can pay for several paid plans for extra space and sharing options. By subscribing once, you authorize pCloud to charge your chosen payment method. pCloud offers renewal subscriptions and lifetime subscriptions.
pCloud users can pay for paid plans on a renewing period basis (for example, monthly and yearly plans).
All paid renewal subscriptions are renewed for the Services on the date such renewal subscriptions expire. If you have a renewal subscription, this will be extended automatically until you terminate it and every further payment will be due at the beginning of the new payment cycle.
pCloud users can pay for a lifetime plan. A lifetime plan is in effect for the duration of the lifetime of the account owner or 99 years, whichever is shorter.
Payments for and Cancellation of Subscriptions
You can cancel your subscriptions for the pCloud Service at any time from your payment account. However, no refund will be provided for any unused days.
All users who subscribe for Services subject to a fee ("Paid Services") must enter valid credit [or debit] card or PayPal account credentials. The Service is billed in advance on a monthly or yearly basis (depending on the selection you make at the point of subscription) and paid on an automatic basis. You hereby authorize pCloud to automatically charge your credit card or PayPal account for charges that apply to your account. All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, including VAT, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, duties or VAT, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes.
If, for any reason, you are not satisfied with the Paid services, you can cancel your subscription for Paid Services at any time.
pCloud has a ten (10) calendar days money back guarantee, beginning on the day you have submitted your payment for the Paid services. During this period, you are eligible to request for a refund. If you issue an explicit written request for a refund within the ten (10) days referenced above, we will process the refund due to you in full within 30 calendar days, counting from the day you have confirmed your request.
We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.
In case you have purchased Paid services through a promotional campaign or provided discount, pCloud reserves the right to decline providing a refund.
Changes to the Site or Services
pCloud enhances and updates its Site and Services often. We may change or discontinue the Site or any Services although we will, in such circumstances, use reasonable efforts to provide you with prior notice so that you can make alternative arrangements for the storage of any User Content and we will not terminate a Service under this section during a subscription period for which you have already paid without refunding you a fair portion of your payment based on how long is left until the end of the subscription.
No Transfer of Accounts
User accounts are not transferable. Only the user who signs up for an account may use the account. If a user transfers an account in violation of this section, pCloud may terminate the account and the users’ right to access the Site and Services.
Change of Ownership
pCloud may at any time, without explicit notice, change the company ownership, be subject to merger or sale, partnership or else. In the case of such change of ownership, merger, sale or other, pCloud only has the obligation to notify you through updating the present Terms and Conditions. Such an action will in no way affect your use of the Service or the Site, or your subscriptions and accounts.
We reserve the right not to provide the Site or Services to any user. We also reserve the right to terminate any user's right to access the Site or Services at any time, in our discretion. If you breach any of these Terms, your permission to use the Site and Services and your account automatically terminate. If pCloud ceases operation, your account will be terminated and pCloud will no longer provide the Site or Services. If your account is terminated in accordance with this section, you will not receive any refund of any fees paid for the account.
Free pCloud accounts that haven’t verified their email address within a reasonable time period, will be permanently deleted, along with the files inside.
Free pCloud accounts that have been inactive for 6 months, will be permanently deleted, along with the files inside.

Subject to the above, in no event will pCloud, or any of its respective directors, officers, employees, and agents, be liable to you in connection with the Site or the Services (whether for breach of contract, negligence or any other reason) for: (i) any consequential, incidental or indirect damages; or (ii) loss of business profits, business interruption or loss of business information. Any liability we do have for losses you suffer is strictly limited to losses that were a direct and reasonably foreseeable result of our default.
Where you use the Site or Services in the course of a business, pCloud's aggregate liability (and whether such liability arises as a result of any breach of contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, misrepresentation or for any other reason) will be limited to the higher of: (a) total fees paid by you to pCloud for use of the Site or Services; and (b) [EUR5,000].
Disclaimer and Limitations on Our Liability (For Users Outside of the European Union)
YOU USE THE SITE AND SERVICES AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE SITE AND SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS.

IN PARTICULAR, PCLOUD AND ITS AFFILIATES MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES ABOUT THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF CONTENT AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY RECOMMENDATIONS OR OTHER CONTENT AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES), OR THE CONTENT OF ANY WEBSITES OR RESOURCES LINKED TO THE SITE OR SERVICES.

YOU, AND NOT PCLOUD, ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING, PROTECTING, AND BACKING UP ALL OF YOUR USER CONTENT AND DATA.

PCLOUD AND ITS AFFILIATES DO NOT WARRANT, ENDORSE, GUARANTEE, OR ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY THIRD PARTY PRODUCT OR SERVICE RECOMMENDED, ADVERTISED OR OFFERED ON OR THROUGH THE PCLOUD SITE OR SERVICES OR ANY LINKED WEBSITE.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT ANY MATERIAL OR INFORMATION DOWNLOADED OR OTHERWISE OBTAINED THROUGH THE USE OF THE SITE OR SERVICES IS DONE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND THAT YOU WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE ARISING FROM DOING SO. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM PCLOUD OR THROUGH THE SITE OR SERVICES WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY MADE IN THESE TERMS.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY THE APPLICABLE LAW, NEITHER PCLOUD NOR ITS AFFILIATES WILL BE LIABLE UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF REVENUES, PROFITS, GOODWILL, USE, DATA, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES (EVEN IF SUCH PARTIES WERE ADVISED OF, KNEW OF OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO USE OF THE SITE OR SERVICES.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations and disclaimers may not apply to you. To the extent pCloud may not, as a matter of applicable law, disclaim any implied warranty or limit its liabilities, the scope and duration of such warranty and the extent of pCloud's liability will be the minimum permitted under such law.
You agree to indemnify and defend pCloud and its Affiliates from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses, costs, expenses, fees of any kind (including reasonable attorneys' fees and legal costs), arising from or relating to: (a) any information (including your User Content or any other content) that you or anyone using your account or your Credentials store, upload, submit, post or transmit through the Site or Services; (b) the use of the Site or Services by you or anyone using your account or your Credentials; (c) breach of these Terms by you or anyone using your account or your Credentials; or (d) breach of any rights of any third party, including intellectual property, privacy, publicity or other proprietary rights by you or anyone using your account or your Credentials. pCloud reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you. If we do assume the defense of such a matter, you will reasonably cooperate with pCloud in such defense.
Under no circumstances will pCloud be held liable for any delay or failure in performance due in whole or in part to any acts of nature or other causes beyond its reasonable control.
If any provision of these Terms is found to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity or enforceability of any remaining provisions.
The failure of pCloud to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not prevent pCloud from enforcing such right or provision in the future.
We may assign our rights and obligations under these Terms, including in connection with a merger, acquisition, a sale of assets or by operation of law.
