6.     Membership; User Names and Passwords

Any online community hosted on our Website (the "Community") is designed for you and your family's enjoyment. As a member of the Community, you may receive certain specialized content, as well as special offers from Company. If you become a member of the Community, you represent that: (i) you are authorized to join Internet programs in which e-mail communications are used; and (ii) you are 18 years of age or older. In addition, with respect to such membership, Company may refuse to grant you, and you may not use, a user name (or e-mail address) that is already being used by someone else; that may be construed as impersonating another person; that belongs to another person; that violates the intellectual property or other rights of any person; that is offensive; or that we reject for any other reason in our sole discretion.

You further agree that you are responsible for all activities that occur under your account or password, and agree not to sell, transfer or assign your subscription or any associated rights. Company reserves the right to terminate your membership to the Community if any individual other than you attempts to access the Website using your user name or password or if you (or anyone using your user name and password) otherwise breach these Terms of Use. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and for restricting access to your computer so others may not access the Website in violation of these Terms of Use. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that the e-mail address you initially provide is deliverable and, should your e-mail address change, it is your sole responsibility to return to the Website and update your e-mail address. Should your e-mail address become undeliverable, your membership to the Community may be suspended until such time as you provide a currently-deliverable e-mail address. In such cases, no retroactive benefits will be provided for the period your membership was in a suspended state. You must remove yourself from membership to the Community should you wish to no longer receive e-mail communications from Company. Simply "replying" to an e-mail message sent to you is not an authorized method of removal and such requests will not be processed. Removal from the Community is properly accomplished by using your web browser to visit the Website and entering your e-mail address and password. Once logged in, you will need to opt out of participating in the Community by sending a request through Contact Us. Company may send you an email confirming your removal from the Community. No other methods of removal are approved or authorized.
