This is a legal Agreement (“Agreement”) between You and Abeedesk for the use of Service. We reserve the right to update these Terms and we will notify You about the changed terms by placing a suitable announcement on our site.

Description of Service
Abeedesk is a web-based application that allows You to have video conversations with other users. You do not need to install any additional software or plugins to use the Service. Users who wish to have a video conversation have to type in the same URL in the browser window to meet together in the same room. By default a room is open, which means that anybody that types in the same URL will enter the same room.
During the video conversation participants can see other and communicate with voice, text chat and interactive whiteboard. Any participant during the meeting can also lock the room, which prevents others from entering the same room. Users who wish to enter the locked room will receive an appropriate notification that the room is not available and will be asked to try again later.
Privacy and Security
We do not store or track any audio and video communication in our system. Chat messages in the Abeedesk application are automatically deleted when all users exit the room and no transcripts are stored in our system.
Communication via the Abeedesk application takes place directly between users (peer-to-peer connection) and does not pass through any or our servers. Data and media streams (audio and video) are encrypted using DTLS and SRTP.
When contacting us You may provide us with your e-mail which we store and may use to contact You about issues relating to the Service. Also, when You leave Your session you will be automatically directed to our feedback form which is anonymous and includes no personally identifying information apart from Your e-mail which is also optional.
This Service is offered as a free version. However, we reserve the right to change or modify the current free plan to include paid features that will be offered in a premium plan at any time.
