The Service allows users to create and share virtual locks through a link or a QR-Code (usable in the context of digital escape games). Different types of code are configurable and different Contents can be associated with them: text, image, video hosted on the web or link to a site.

Any User with an Account can create his own virtual padlocks (within the limit of 60) and share them afterwards. These virtual padlocks are then accessible to any other User (with or without an Account) who has a link to them.

The Service is free of charge for all Users (excluding for commercial use). Any User with access to the Internet can access the Service for free and from anywhere. The costs incurred by the User to access it (Internet connection, computer equipment, etc.) are not the responsibility of the Editor. Some additional options could be offered in exchange of a paid subscription.

Use of the Service for commercial purposes requires a paid subscription. Any Account conducting commercial activity using the Service for free (without a subscription) may be blocked or deleted without notice.

The virtual Locks offered by the Service have been developed for recreational use. In terms of security, it is therefore strongly advised against using them to share confidential or sensitive information.

The Service may be interrupted or suspended by the Editor, occasionally or permanently, without notice or justification.
