Snow.gq web service does not collect any personal information and do not intentionally track actions that potential users do on the website. If the user shrinks the URL with snow.gq service using the password protection feature, only the password in the encrypted format and initial URL is stored on a server as is, so that original password is never known to the service creators/owners. Service and its creators are not responsible for any tracking actions that might be done by cloud providers or plugins that service is built on/with.
Snow.gq service users are solely in charge of all actions done within the resource and are not under control of the snow.gq services and owners. Service includes an expiry date feature that triggers automatic URL removal from the service on the date. For instance, if you choose the expiry date to be one month after link shortening, service will remove any signs of the link from the server; however, service may experience outages and database backups may contain historical information. Removed links are not the subject to be recovered, which means that every removed link is deleted permanently with the exceptions mentioned above.
If you use a password feature of the snow.gq service, it is your responsibility to create a comprehensive password and share it privately with others. Service does not check the length of the password and whether it is strong or not. You are not able to recover password and if the password is lost it can never be recovered.
Snow.gq and its creators are not in a control of the destination links’ contents that are shortened by users. Any URL that is provided in a shortened format may contain any URL with any material inside. Service does not check links on a restricted content and do not protect users from scam, phishing and other malicious actions that might be used within destination URL. So, it is a user responsibility to take protective actions prior to visiting the destination web service / site under the shortened URL.
Snow.gq service is created by Vladimir Sukhov and Oxana Sukhova without involvement of 3rd party vendors or subcontractors, and thereafter, both Vladimir and Oxana are owners of the resource and intellectual property that includes a website architecture, design and a password protection feature. Any attempts to replicate or mirror the website without written confirmation from owners will be prosecuted according to the international law.
