Please read the following Terms & Conditions carefully because they affect your legal rights. Notably, these Terms & Conditions contain an arbitration agreement that requires the use of arbitration on an individual basis to resolve disputes rather than jury or any other court proceedings, or class actions of any kind. You will find the arbitration agreement set forth in the “Arbitration Agreement” section below.
To be perfectly clear, 2nd Vault, a Florida L.L.C. is not a substitute for a certified public accountant (CPA), accountant, accounting firm, attorney, law firm, financial institution, financial advisor/planner, executor, personal representative, or a fiduciary. If you have any questions about any financial advice, you must seek the advice of an attorney, CPA, or a financial advisor/planner, executor, personal representative, or a fiduciary.
These terms and conditions of use are entered into between You and 2nd Vault (“2nd Vault,” “we,” “our” or “us”). The following terms and conditions, together with any documents they expressly incorporate by reference collectively, (“Terms and Conditions” or “Terms”), govern your access to and use of 2nd Vault, including any content, functionality, and services offered on or through www.2ndvault.com, including mobile applications (collectively, the “site”).
In these terms, the words “You” “User,” and “Your” refers to only one individual who is deemed the register user of the account. For example, an account under the name “Jack Smith,” only belongs to Jack Smith—no one else. The one exception to this rule is the user designated “Confidant.” A Confidant is one individual that you choose to obtain access to your account at any time, or in your unplanned absence, or on the terms that you specify when establishing an account with 2nd Vault. Upon establishing an account with 2nd Vault, the User and the Confidant will be provided with a Confidant Code. The Confidant Code is a alphanumeric code that is automatically generated. The Confidant Code is used to initiate the retrieval process, which is the process of providing access to your account to your Confidant. The Confidant may select Basic or Full access to your account.
In order for your Confidant to retrieve your account information, your Confidant must complete and submit a retrieval form with the confidant code. Once the application is submitted an email and an SMS notification will be emailed to the user’s registered email address and phone number.
Basic access will be granted immediately after verification of the Confidant code is confirmed. Basic access includes, but is not limited to the following documents and information: medical providers, dental providers, medication(s); funeral and burial information; do not resuscitate (“DNR”); durable power of attorney; and organ donor summary. Full access includes unlimited and full access to the User’s account. In order to obtain full access to the user’s account, there is a 14 day waiting period once the confidant’s credentials are submitted in full.
The site provides an interactive way for users to store your unique and identifying information to provide it to your Confidant at any time, or in your unplanned absence, or on the terms that you specify when establishing an account with 2nd Vault (“interactive service” or “service” or “services” or “the service”).
You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username, password, and account. In addition, but not by way of limitation you are solely responsible for any and all statements made and/or any acts or omissions that occur through the use of your username, password, and account, and charges incurred. Therefore, you must take steps to ensure to protect the integrity of your account by not providing others with access to your username, password, or account. PLEASE REMEMBER, WE WILL NEVER ASK YOU FOR YOUR PASSWORD OR YOUR CONFIDANT CODE. IF YOUR CONFIDANT’S CODE IS LOST, MISPLACED, STOLEN, OR DELETED, MY MACRO MEMOIR™ WILL NOT PROVIDE YOUR CONFIDANT WITH A NEW CONFIDANT CODE, AND YOUR CONFIDANT WILL NO LONGER HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR ACCOUNT.
We will never have access to the User’s account. Only the User, and his or her Confidant can access the User’s account. Your Confidant can only gain access through the use of his or her Confidant Code. We will provide the Confidant code to the User and the Confidant upon the completion of the User’s registration. AGAIN, ONLY THE USER CAN OBTAIN A NEW CONFIDANT CODE IF HE OR SHE LOSES IT. HOWEVER, IF THE CONFIDANT LOSES THE CONFIDANT CODE, WE WILL NOT PROVIDE THE CONFIDANT WITH A NEW CODE AND YOUR CONFIDANT WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE YOUR ACCOUNT. THIS IS TO PROTECT THE SECURITY OF THE USER AND US.
We understand you may have an, agent, lawyer, law firm, personal certified public accountant, accountant, accounting firm, representative, executor, trustee, power of attorney, financial advisor, financial planner, or fiduciary to represent your interests (collectively “third parties”).
If you elect to provide your user information, password, access to your account, or your Confidant Code to a third party, please understand, you assume all responsibility for doing so, and you do so at your own peril. Additionally, any third party that you provide your username, password, Confidant Code, and access to your account, the third party is hereby legally bound to the terms as outlined herein, including the arbitration agreement. Before any third party gains access to the service, you agree to notify the third party of the terms, and they must read the terms before gaining access to the service. Finally, you agree to notify us immediately if you provide your username, password, account information to any third party, regardless if you did so intentionally or unintentionally. This means, if you discover that ANYONE, including a person or entity obtained access to your account by fraud, trickery, deceit, or hacking, you must notify us immediately. If you fail to notify us immediately, your account may be terminated without notice. YOU DO NOT NEED TO PROVIDE US YOUR CONFIDANT CODE OR ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR ACCOUNT THAT YOU MAY HAVE UPLOADED OR DOWNLOADED FROM OUR SITE, BUT YOU MUST NOTIFY US THAT YOU PROVIDED A THIRD PARTY WITH YOUR CONFIDANT CODE.
To help protect your security, you may write, “Not for Official Use” on any copies of any documents that you choose to upload to this site.
Additionally, you may redact out information on any copies of any documents that are not essential to you in any documents.

We have the right to disable any user name, password, or other identifier, whether chosen by you or provided by us, at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason, including if, in our opinion, you have violated any provision of these Terms.
