Updated CrashPlan for Home EULA

CrashPlan e-mailed me some highlights from their license agreement:

We like your feedback on our products. If you do provide feedback, you give us the ability to use your feedback.


You must connect the devices you back up to the public cloud to CrashPlan Central at least once every 6 months. We may delete data stored in our public cloud associated with devices that have not been connected within such 6-month period.

This clause is new:

You agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Code42, whether arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including any alleged breach thereof), the Code42 Products and Services, any advertising, any aspect of the relationship or transactions between you and Code42, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court, in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that you may assert individual claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. […] You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and Code42 are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury.
