Registration and account
All information received from you from your use of The Site will be used by The Operator in accordance with the Privacy Policies Statement listed on this site.
As part of the registration process, you will choose a user name (“User Name”) and password (“Password”) and become a user id (“ID”). You may not:
- select or use a User Name of another person with intent to impersonate that person,
- use a name subject to the rights of any other person without authorization,
- use a User Name that The Operator, in its sole discretion, deems inappropiate or offensive.
Each registration is for a single user only. The Operator does not permit any other person sharing your user name and password or access through a single name and password being made available to multiple users on a network. The Operator may cancel or suspend your access to The Site if you do this without further obligation to you.
You are responsible for all use of The Site and The Operator services by you or anyone else using your ID and for preventing unauthorised use of your ID. If you believe there has been any breach of security such as the disclosure, theft or unauthorised use of your ID or any payment information, you must notify The Operator immediately e.g. via e-mail or the contact form.
We strongly recommend that the selection of your password is not based on your own name or those of the family and that you change your password regularly. You shall be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password.
If you provide The Operator with an e-mail address so that e-mails or SMS messages can be sent to you via a computer network or telephone operated or owned by a third party (e.g. your employer or college) then you warrant that you are entitled to receive those messages. You also agree that The Operator may refrain from sending you such messages, without notifying you, even if you have subscribed to receive them, if we receive a request from a third party to stop sending e-mails or SMS messages to you.
The Operator may terminate a user’s account in The Operator’s absolute discretion and for any reason.
The Operator is especially likely to terminate for reasons that include, but are not limited to, the following:

In addition, a user’s request for termination will result in deactivation but not necessarily deletion of the account. The Operator reserves the right to delete, or not delete, a user’s account at The Operator’s sole discretion, as well as to delete, or not delete, User Materials at The Operator’s sole discretion.
At The Operator’s sole discretion, you may also be reported to appropriate law-enforcement organisations for any abusive, fraudulent or otherwise illegal activity.
