Terms of Use

VulDB provides a data service that allows users to access information about security vulnerabilities and threat intelligence. This data can be accessed via web site or API. These Terms of Use govern the service of VulDB.

1. Access

1.1 Free Trial

Users are able to access all data published freely on the service. There are limitations in regard of views, details and amount of items. Scraping large chunks of data is not allowed. Using multiple accounts or other approaches to circumvent limitations of the service are not allowed.

1.2 Registration

More access capabilities is available for users that have created a free account. After the account validation you are able to access more views, details and amount of items.

1.3 Trial Period

The availability and accessibility of the free account might change over time due to trial expiration or changes in appearance. You are able to enhance the availability and accessibility of your account by purchasing a commercial license.

1.4 Commercial Subscription

Users are able to upgrade their account to a commercial subscription. This will allow more views, details and amount of items according to the subscription level.

There might still be access and/or usage limitations which require a higher commercial subscription level or a custom enterprise license for several views, details or amount of items. Combining multiple accounts to circumvent limitations of the service are not allowed.

Users with a subscription are capable of upgrading their plans without extra upgrade charges.

1.5 Billing Cycle

Commercial subscriptions using credit card payments provide an automated renewal on a monthly basis. The charges apply as soon as a new period begins. It is possible to cancel a subscription to prevent such an autorenewal. The charged period will expire properly and no further billing for a renewal will happen.

Commercial subscriptions with invoice payments have an automated renewal of 12 month. The payment has to happen before the subscription period.

Enterprise licenses have a custom contract which handle renewals individually.

1.6 Payment Methods

To use a commercial or enterprise license you must provide a valid payment method that is supported by the service.

All credit card payments are fully automated and handled by our external partner Stripe. We do not send receipts nor invoices ourselves. You may find your invoices in your profile. Custom invoicing is possible with other payment methods only.

1.7 Cancellation

Commercial subscriptions established with credit card payments can be cancelled at any time. Invoice-based subscriptions require a cancellation via email or contact form. As soon as the running and therefore charged period ends, there will be no renewal and no further charging.

The status of a subscription is visible in the personal user profile. A cancelled subscription can be reactivated before the charged period runs out without further expenses. This would just re-enable the autorenewal again.

An immediate cancellation during a running period is not possible and therefore no chargebacks intended.

Enterprise licenses have a custom contract which handle cancellations individually.

1.8 Changes to Price and Subscription Plans

We may change our subscription plans and the price of our service from time to time. We will notify you at least 30 days earlier if such changes apply to you.
