Not everyone in my organisation will use ZIVVER. Why do I need to purchase licenses for the entire organisation?
Secure email is something you implement in the entire organisation, simply because almost everyone in an organisation uses email. It is hard to justify who you do and do not exclude from secure emailing. ZIVVER offers integral logging to organisations. This is an essential condition stipulated by the GDPR. We cannot offer realistic and reliable reports on your organisation’s information flows if it uses only a few accounts. The logging would be incomplete.
What are the benefits of a business account compared with a free account?
A free personal account has a limited set of functionalities. A free account offers no protection against human errors and no logging or administrator functions. In addition, it is good to know that using a free consumer account for business purposes is legally prohibited. You do’nt need a processor’s agreement for a free personal account, since you only process your own personal data. For business purposes you need a processor’s agreement to comply with the GDPR. We only provide this agreement for paid business accounts.
Do I comply with the GDPR?
The GDPR defines responsible handling of personal data in the broadest sense of the word. This includes, for instance, the need for a proper lock on the office door, so burglars cannot steal computers. To be GDPR-proof, a company should take far more measures than secure mailing only. For example, establishing a register of all personal data or performing a privacy-impact analysis. To that end, secure mailing with ZIVVER is a step forward, but it is no guarantee that an organisation fully complies with the GDPR. With ZIVVER, you are GDPR-proof, when it comes to email, chat, and file transfer!
How many ZIVVER accounts can I create for my organisation?
The number of employees determine the number of licenses. There is no limit to this, no matter how many mail addresses are included in a license. Shared mailboxes, such as email@example.com are free of charge.
Can I take a subscription for a shorter period than 36 months as well?
Yes, you can. A duration of 12 or 24 months is possible as well. But is that case, you do not use our lowest price guarantee.
Why is a short-term contract more expensive than a long-term contract?
We spread the costs we incur for starting your account, administrative processing, management, updates, and maintenance over a specific period. If this period lasts longer, than the costs per month are lower. We like to reward you with a discount if you assign to ZIVVER for an extended period. This way, we are assured of a long-lasting and sustainable relation and you are assured of the lowest price on a long-term basis.
Do I have to pay for shared mailboxes (such as firstname.lastname@example.org)?
No. To gain access to a shared, an employee needs their own ZIVVER account. Since the organisation already pays for accounts for each employee, shared mailboxes are free of charge.

Can I become a partner of ZIVVER or resell ZIVVER?
We like to get in touch with partners focusing on organisations of 150 employees or more. ZIVVER has a model in which we offer a reseller 300 accounts, for instance, for one rate. The reseller can resell these accounts to customers. He can charge his own rate for this, with the rate we charge as a maximum. At the moment, ZIVVER does not enter partnerships with resellers focusing on organisations with less than 150 employees. It is just not profitable for a reseller to bring in these customers at a fee. The amounts are too low to offer this in a reseller model. Do you want to know more about the opportunities? Please fill in our contact form.
