DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES

We offer, through Sectigo, various SSL certification services.  Each of these are further described below and are governed by individual agreements with a specific set of terms and conditions referenced and incorporated herein, as well as various practice and policy statements that govern the services generally. All Services are governed by Sectigo’s Certification Practice Statement. To the extent applicable, Services may also be subject to terms and conditions of Sectigo’s Relying Party Agreement.

SSL Certificates.  Any SSL certificate you ask us to purchase from Sectigo for you is subject to and is intended for its specific use as described in the Sectigo Certificate Subscriber Agreement.  For Premium (EV) certificates, there is an extensive vetting process that starts with an in-depth application that will require you to provide details about your business, such as registration number, incorporation or registration agent and any relevant jurisdiction information.

If you are using an SSL certificate, Sectigo will generate and securely store a corresponding private key.  For security reasons, at no time will we or Sectigo release your private key, even per your request. If you wish to export your SSL certificate for use outside of Authentic Web’s Services, request a re-key of the SSL certificate – your current SSL certificate will become invalid and Sectigo, upon your request to Sectigo directly, will issue a new certificate for use outside of Authentic Web’s Services.

SSL Certificates Term.   CAB Forum requires that all SSL certificates issued on or after March 1, 2018 be no more than 825 days valid. As such, Sectigo will either itself or we will re-validate and re-issue certificates that are longer than 2 years as long as the SSL certificate has an active subscription.

We will display the SSL Certificates coming up for renewal in the Domain Name Asset Management system. To renew, you will be required to explicitly renew the certificate prior to expiry if you want to maintain the certificate on the fully qualified domain name.
