The designer also seems to be a founder & CEO
over here: http://www.tnotice.com/en

Claims to use "the new encryption algorithm SHA-7,
faster and more secure than any other technology
now known for encryption of data."

But then "SHA-7 allows to generate a unique
"message digest" of the content of a message",
So it is a hash, not an encryption algorithm.

They compare performance to SHA-2 and do
not even mention SHA-3. Perhaps they missed
the memo?

This does not inspire confidence.
