Clef is a new way to manage your identity on the web. Clef facilitates website user login and registration by making user authentication easy and secure for users rather than requiring you to remember numerous usernames and passwords. Users download the Clef mobile application on their phone or other mobile device and set up an account using only their email. Then, users can scan any login QR code on a Clef enabled site and instantly authenticate the computer. (See How Clef Works and FAQ.) Finally, when users are ready, they can logout on their phone and the computer’s authenticated session will be deactivated, allowing no new logins to Clef enabled sites.
Clef reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Clef Site or any portion thereof with or without notice. You agree that Clef shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Clef Site or any portion thereof.
To use the services available on the Clef Site, you must complete the membership registration form. You agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Clef Site's registration form ("User Data") and (b) maintain and promptly update the User Data to keep it accurate and current. You agree that Clef may use your User Data to provide the user authentication, login and registration services on the Clef Site for which you have enrolled (the “Services”). If you provide any information that is inaccurate or not current, or Clef has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is inaccurate or not current, Clef has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Clef Site. In consideration of your use of the Clef Site, you represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of any applicable jurisdiction.
