You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account, and for all activities that occur through the use of your account. We are not liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to secure your account, user name and password.
Your user name and password give you access to the registered services and your account. If your user name or passwords are shared with or accessed by others without your authority, you and your account will be vulnerable to misuse. Therefore, you should select a password that is "easy to remember, but hard to guess" to protect your account from unauthorized use or takeover. Many types of cyberharassment and cyberbullying start with the misuse of the target's password and account. So choose it wisely and guard it carefully. If you believe that your user name and password or account have been compromised, report that to us immediately at Contact Us. We may require that you provide proof of identity and account ownership before we take action on your report.
We have security processes, policies and procedures to help safeguard and prevent unauthorized access, use and/or disclosure of your personally identifiable information. Note that no processes, policies or procedures are foolproof and although we use reasonable efforts to safeguard the security of your account and personally identifiable information, transmissions and storage of account and personally identifiable information are vulnerable to attack and cannot be guaranteed to be secure.
User Accounts, points and scores, usernames and passwords are not transferable and have no cash value.
