Your use of Astrill's products, software, services and web sites (referred to collectively as the "Services" in this document and excluding any services provided to you by Astrill under a separate written agreement) is subject to the terms of a legal agreement between you and Astrill. This document explains how the agreement is made up, and sets out some of the terms of that agreement.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing with Astrill, your agreement with Astrill will always include, at a minimum, the terms and conditions set out in this document. These are referred to below as the "Universal Terms".
Your agreement with Astrill will also include the terms of any Legal Notices applicable to the Services, in addition to the Universal Terms. All of these are referred to below as the "Additional Terms". Where Additional Terms apply to a Service, these will be accessible for you to read either within, or through your use of, that Service.
The Universal Terms, together with the Additional Terms, form a legally binding agreement between you and Astrill in relation to your use of the Services. It is important that you take the time to read them carefully. Collectively, this legal agreement is referred to below as the "Terms".
If there is any contradiction between what the Additional Terms say and what the Universal Terms say, then the Additional Terms shall take precedence in relation to that Service.

Language of the Terms
Where Astrill has provided you with a translation of the English language version of the Terms, then you agree that the translation is provided for your convenience only and that the English language versions of the Terms will govern your relationship with Astrill.
If there is any contradiction between what the English language version of the Terms says and what a translation says, then the English language version shall take precedence.
