How to Recover Your Files with Disk Drill:
In order to see if Your file(s) can be recovered properly, You should (1) download CleverFiles’ free Disk Drill Basic to run a scan on Your device. A scan of Your device with Disk Drill Basic will generate a list of damaged, deleted, or inaccessible files that can be potentially recovered. Secondly, You should (2) preview the entirety of the file(s) generated by the Disk Drill scan in order to filter which files will be recoverable and which may not be recoverable. If a file is fully previewable (i.e., You scrolled through the entire preview and it was free of internal errors) it can be successfully recovered. In order to recover such a successfully-previewed file(s), if You did not enable Disk Drill’s data protection features in the past, You must (3) purchase either Disk Drill PRO (for personal use) or Disk Drill Enterprise (for commercial use), and then follow the easy-to-use steps provided within the Disk Drill application.
After a scan with Disk Drill Basic, if a file(s) is not fully previewable (i.e., You cannot view the entire file or the file contains errors) the particular file(s) still may be recoverable; however, the failure of the file to properly preview means there is a chance this particular file(s) is damaged and will be unrecoverable. If You accept this risk, simply purchase either Disk Drill PRO or Disk Drill Enterprise and likewise follow the easy-to-use steps provided to attempt to recover Your file(s)—though note that by making such purchase You explicitly accept the aforementioned risks and all purchases are final. However, if You are unwilling to accept the risk or would like to consider Your options before You purchase Disk Drill PRO or Disk Drill Enterprise, please contact CleverFiles’ Help Center who can provide You with assistance and information pertaining to the file(s) You wish to recover.

13. INFORMATION AND MATERIALS PROVIDED BY YOU
14. OWNERSHIP OF YOUR FILES
As to CleverFiles, all of the files that You scan with Disk Drill Basic or recover (or attempt to recover) with Disk Drill PRO or Disk Drill Enterprise are Your sole property. At no stage of the scanning or recovery process of Your files does CleverFiles have the ability to save, store, transfer, or view the data You recover, the amount of data You recover (with the exception of Disk Drill for Windows due to its pricing model), or what type of content You recover (e.g., text versus video files). This arms-length recovery process is part of the reason why CleverFiles does not offer refunds of purchases, because CleverFiles has no way of discerning whether Your data was successfully recovered or not. CleverFiles is happy to aid You in the recovery process, however, CleverFiles will not be able to view any of Your files without Your assistance.

You ACKNOWLEDGE that if You fail to supply the abovementioned information in Your Notice to the Copyright Agent Your DMCA notice may not be valid.
* Please note that the above procedure is exclusively for notifying 508 Software and its affiliates that Your copyrighted material may have been infringed.
26.3 Counter-Notice. If You believe that Your User Content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that You have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and/or use the material in Your User Content, You should send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:

While 508 Software does not adjudicate disputes between parties in connection with trademark infringement or any other matter, 508 Software will make good faith effort to address Your concerns, including (in some instances) removing the infringing content or disabling access to the infringing content. However, in order to be assured that the claimed content is indeed infringing, 508 Software may require proof from You, such as, for example a trademark registration number or a court order finding trademark infringement. Some Third-Party Material(s) and Products on the Website are created and operated by third-party developers or service providers. As such, 508 Software does not have the ability to control the content made available through these applications or services. If You believe Your trademark has been infringed by a third-party service provider and not 508 Software, You should contact the third party directly with Your concerns.

Temporary suspension of Access to the Website or Products may occur without notice at 508 Software’s sole discretion, including, without limitation, in the case of repair, maintenance, system failure, or for reasons beyond 508 Software’s control. 508 Software reserves the right to suspend the operation of the Website or Products but will only do so on a good faith basis. You AGREE that neither 508 Software nor its third-party providers will be liable to You in any way for the termination, suspension, interruption, or delay of Your Products, or Access to the 508 Software Website or Products.
You hereby AGREE to indemnify and hold harmless 508 Software, its affiliates, officers, directors, agents, and employees, from any expense, loss, claim, damage, fine, penalty, or liability, which includes reasonable attorney fees and other professionals’ costs, which are payable under any judgment, verdict, court order or settlement, to the extent resulting from any claim, demand, action, suit, arbitration, or other proceeding initiated by any third party, including the assessment, claim or demand by a governmental agency or entity, arising out of User Content or Your breach of any representation, warranty, obligation, or covenant of the Terms of Service, or any Products purchased or obtained by You in connection with the 508 Software Website.
508 Software retains the exclusive right to compromise, pay, and settle, without Your consent, any and all claims or causes of action that are brought against 508 Software. 508 Software also reserves the right, at Your expense, to assume the exclusive control or defense of any matter for which You are required to indemnify 508 Software and You AGREE to cooperate with the defense of these claims. You further AGREE not to settle any matter in which 508 Software is named as a defendant and/or for which You have indemnity obligations under Section 28, hereof, without 508 Software’s prior written consent. 508 Software will use all reasonable efforts to communicate with and notify You of any such action, claim, or other proceeding in an acceptable and timely manner.
508 Software may assign or delegate the Terms of Service, in whole or in part, to any person or entity at any time with or without Your consent. You, however, may not assign or delegate any rights or obligations under the Terms of Service without 508 Software’s prior written authorization and consent, and any unauthorized assignment or delegation by You shall be void and ineffective.
30. AGREEMENT TO DEAL ELECTRONICALLY
All transactions with or through the Website or Products shall, unless initiated otherwise at 508 Software’s option, be conducted and executed electronically. 508 Software may keep records of any type of communication conducted via the Website or Products. You AGREE to receive and send electronic communications with 508 Software which shall include all agreements, disclosures, and notifications. All electronic records are deemed sent when they are properly addressed to the recipient and the record enters an information processing system outside the control of the sender or the record enters a region of an information processing system under the recipient’s control. All electronic records are received when the record enters an information processing system that the recipient has designated or uses for the purpose of receiving electronic records or information of the type sent, in a form capable of being processed by that system, and from which the recipient is able to retrieve the electronic record.
31.1 Injunctive Relief. You ACKNOWLEDGE and AGREE that any violation or breach of the Terms of Service may cause 508 Software immediate and irreparable harm and damage. As a result, 508 Software has the right to, and may in its sole discretion, immediately obtain preliminary injunctive relief (including, without limitation, temporary restraining orders) and seek permanent injunctive relief against You regarding any violation or breach of the Terms of Service. In addition to any and all other remedies available to 508 Software in law or in equity, 508 Software may seek specific performance of any term or condition in the Terms of Service.
31.2 Force Majeure. With the exception of payment obligations, neither You nor 508 Software will be liable for the failure to abide by or to perform an obligation under the Terms of Service, to the extent that such failure is caused by a force majeure event. A force majeure event includes acts of God, unforeseeable action by a governmental entity, civil disturbances, loss of electricity and/or telecommunications, natural disasters, strike, terrorism, war, or any other such extreme event beyond the reasonable control of either You or 508 Software.
31.3 Severability. The Terms of Service will be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. If for any reason any provision of the Terms of Service is held to be invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, then (i) such provision will be interpreted, construed, or reformed to the extent necessary to render the same outcome as attempted in the original writing (or as close thereto as possible), and (ii) such invalidity or unenforceability will not affect any other provision of the Terms of Service. However, if any material limitation or restriction is deemed illegal, invalid, or otherwise unenforceable in regards to the User’s License (as outlined in Section 4, above), the License will immediately terminate.
31.4 Waiver; Terms of Service Rights. In the case 508 Software or You waive any breach or rights under the Terms of Service, this waiver will affect only that particular situation and will not waive any other future breach or rights. Additionally, the failure of 508 Software to enforce the Terms of Service under strict performance will not be construed as a waiver of 508 Software’s rights and remedies, herein, nor shall the particular failure to enforce said situation stand as precedent that 508 Software does not enforce the Terms of Service under strict performance. 508 Software fully intends to enforce the Terms of Service in strict performance; however, 508 Software reserves the right to enforce and waive breaches, remedies, and rights on a case-by-case basis. Any such waiver, as discussed above, must be made in writing and executed by 508 Software, and when appropriate You, in order for any effect to be given to said waiver. No waiver will be effective without 508 Software’s authorized signature, and when Your signature is required, no waiver also will be effective without Your authorized signature, unless 508 Software can prove reasonable efforts were given or bad faith is at issue.
31.5 Governing Law and Jurisdiction. The Terms of Service shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia without reference to conflicts of law rules and principles. In the event of a dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter of the Terms of Service, suit may be brought only in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division, provided that, in the event that suit may not be brought in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division, suit may be brought in any court of competent jurisdiction in the Commonwealth of Virginia. You further AGREE to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any such court in the Commonwealth of Virginia for purposes of adjudicating any dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter of the Terms of Service and You AGREE to accept service of process in connection with any such suit. You also AGREE to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the Commonwealth of Virginia for any claim or cause of action arising out of, relating to, or in connection with the Terms of Service or the Website or Products, provided that such exclusivity does not apply to legal actions initiated or brought by 508 Software. The Terms of Service shall not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts (CISG), the application of which is expressly excluded.
31.6 Entire Agreement. The Terms of Service, if not superseded by the most recent version (by calendar date of implementation) of 508 Software’s Terms of Service, constitute the entirety of the agreement between 508 Software and You pertaining to the Access and Use the Website and Products. As stated in Section 31.4, no waivers will be given effect that are not in writing and no other documents shall be consulted or are necessary in interpreting this agreement between 508 Software and You, besides the Terms of Service. Unless allowed for or excepted by the Terms of Service, the agreement between You and 508 Software is wholly contained, herein.
508 SOFTWARE DOES NOT BEAR ANY RESPONSIBILITY NOR ASSUMES ANY RISKS IF, BY ANY REASON, A PRODUCT OR A SERVICE MADE AVAILABLE ON THE WEBSITE BREACHES NATIONAL LAW OF ANY COUNTRY.
