If you choose, or are provided with, a user name, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any other person or entity. You should use particular caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your personal information. We have the right to disable any user name, password or other identifier, whether chosen by you or provided by us, at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason, including if, in our opinion, you have violated any provision of these Terms.
You may use the Sites only for lawful purposes and in accordance with these Terms. You may not engage in any conduct that restricts or inhibits anyone’s use or enjoyment of the Sites, or which, as determined by us, may harm us or other users of the Sites or expose them to liability.
