Definition of the Service that you are buying
‘The Service’ that we provide is a Virtual Private Network (VPN) which is made available for your use on a ‘subscription’ basis (either monthly or Annual). During the time that you continue your subscription, you will have access to our VPN servers , which enable you to create a private, secure tunnel from your device to protect your privacy, and improve your security while online. As part of the service that you purchase, we also provide setup guides, and a basic level of technical support to assist you with the configuration of your device.
The ‘service’ does not include a guarantee of access to any 3rd party sites or services. With the exception of www.essentialvpn.net, all other sites and services on the internet are not within our control and are not part of the Service that we provide.
Actual service coverage, speeds, locations and quality may vary. We will attempt to make the Services available at all times except for limited periods for maintenance and repair. However, the Services may be subject to unavailability for a variety of factors beyond our control, including, but not limited to, emergencies, third party service failures, transmission, equipment or network problems or limitations, interference, and poor signal strength.
