We will also use the information to detect, investigate and/or prevent fraudulent, unauthorized or illegal activity, and carry out any other purpose for which the information was collected.
5.1. Use and Disclosure of Information and Content

5.3. Unauthorized Access
While we take reasonable precautions to prevent unauthorized access to our servers, it is possible that an intruder may access our servers and decode our encryptions; therefore, we cannot be responsible or liable for the removal or deletion of (or the failure to remove or delete) any of your messages.
