A) Information You Provide To Us

This information includes what plan you're subscribed to, when your plan expires, etc.
Your Files: Our Service is designed to make it simple for you to send and receive file transfers. To make that possible, we store, process, and transmit Your Files as well as information related to it. This related information includes the information entered into the upload form by you or the sender (if you are on the receiving end) such as name, details, and information about the files. We also store the time Your Files are uploaded and usage activity. Our Service provide you with different options for sharing Your Files. You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in Your Files. In short, what belongs to you stays yours.

4. How We Share Your Information
Other working for STS: Throughout the course of our provision of our Service to you, we may delegate our authority to collect, access, use, and disseminate your information. For example, our web host Amazon Amazon Web Services, stores the information that you provide us, and we may hire outside contractors to perform maintenance or assist us in securing our website.

Legal Purpose: At times it may become necessary, for legal purposes, to release your information in response to a request from a government agency or a private litigant. You agree that we may disclose your information to a third party where we believe, in good faith, that it is desirable to do so for the purposes of a civil action, criminal investigation, or other legal matter. In the event that we receive a subpoena affecting your privacy, we may elect to notify you to give you an opportunity to file a motion to quash the subpoena, or we may attempt to quash it ourselves, but we are not obligated to do either. We may also proactively report you, and release your information to, third parties where we believe that it is prudent to do so for legal reasons, such as our belief that you have engaged in fraudulent activities. You release us from any damages that may arise from or relate to the release of your information to a request from law enforcement agencies or private litigants.
