6.1 Registration. To access most of the features on the Website, you must register with us. You may not use another person's account to access the Website. When registering for an account, you must provide accurate and complete information. We give you the option to choose your own username and password or have one randomly generated for you.
Your username and password are for your personal use only. You will not share them with any other person. Sometimes multiple access is not your fault-like when hackers try to compromise the Website by bundling multiple users with the same username or password. Regardless of the reason, we cannot allow multiple persons to use the same username and password, and the Website has several techniques to detect unauthorized multiple use. If we discover that multiple persons are using your username or password, we may block your access to the Website through your username or password without giving you advanced notice. We may send you a new username or password to the email address you signed up with to allow you to regain access to the Website. We will not be responsible for, and will not refund any membership fee because of any down time or inability to access the Website that you experience because of the username or password change.
You are responsible for the activity that occurs on your account, and you must keep your password secure. You will not allow anyone under 18-years old or the age of majority where you live, whichever is older, to use your username and password or access the Website. If we discover that you have done this, we may cancel your access to the Website without advanced notice. You must notify us immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. You will need to give us all information you have about the unauthorized use and cooperate fully with us in investigating the matter. We may request that you adopt additional security procedures when accessing the Website in the future to prevent further unauthorized use. Although we have no liability to you for losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account, you will be liable for the losses of others or us because of unauthorized use of your account.
6.2 Membership.As part of the registration process, you must choose a membership type and pay for the membership. We will charge you the membership fee stated on the registration page for the specific period you choose. For your convenience, unless the Website states otherwise, all monthly memberships will automatically renew on expiration at the same price and for the same period unless you cancel your membership before expiration of your current membership period. Paying the membership fee allows you to access the entire Website and its content (except specialty content where we may ask you to pay an additional access or download fee). The membership fee is the amount stated as the full membership fee you originally registered and not the fee for any trial period you bought. The membership fee excludes any taxes or currency transmission charges, which are extra costs charged to you.
6.4 Specialty Content. In some cases, we may charge an additional fee to access or download specialty content. If there are any additional terms or charges for any specialty content, we will identify them up front and require you to agree to them before purchasing. Unless you tell us otherwise in each case, you authorize us to make charges for any specialty content to the credit card, debit card, or other payment method you use to pay your membership fee. Any prices shown for access or downloading specialty content are subject to change without notice. No prices are final until you pay for and we approve your purchase.
6.5 Billing and Payment.We will bill the membership fee for the term you signed up for in advance using the billing method you selected when you registered or you later ask us to use. We will automatically rebill recurring memberships at the end of each term until cancelled according to these terms(if you have a nonrecurring membership, we will not charge you again unless you buy another membership).You authorize our payment-processing agent or us to make these charges using your selected billing method. For payment by credit or debit card, you must ensure that all your credit or debit card information is current and accurate, and inform us of any change in your billing address, card number, or expiration date. You must promptly notify us if your credit or debit card is cancelled, lost, or stolen-or if there is an unauthorized use of your username or password-because we will charge you for all access under your account. We may cancel your membership if we cannot charge your credit or debit card. By giving us your credit or debit card number, you authorize us to submit all charges to your credit or debit card without further approval from you until you give us notice that you have cancelled your membership or wish to change your payment method and we have had a commercially reasonable time to respond.

If we receive notice more than ten days before your billing date, we will make the changes effective as of your next billing period. Otherwise, we will try to make the change as soon as possible
6.7 Billing Errors. We will correct any mistakes in a bill and add or credit them against your future payments. If you become aware of any errors in billing, please notify us promptly for proper credit. We will waive any error in your favor that we do not correct within three months of the bill where the error first appeared. You will waive any error in our favor unless you give us notice of the error within three months after you receive the bill in which it first appears. You also release us from all liability for any error you do not report to us within three months after you receive the bill in which the error first appeared.

15.3(I) Loss or damage of any kind incurred because of the use of any content posted, emailed, transmitted, or otherwise made available through the Website.
The disclaimers, exclusions, and limitations contained in sections 14, 15, and 16 apply to the greatest extent permitted by applicable law, but no more. They are not intended to deprive you of any mandatory protections provided to you under applicable law. Because some jurisdictions may prohibit the exclusion or limitation of certain warranties, liability for consequential damages, or other matters, some or all of the disclaimers, exclusions, or limitations may not apply to you.
We make no representation to you that the content and materials are appropriate or available for use in your jurisdiction. You assume all knowledge of applicable law and are responsible for compliance with these laws. You will not access the Website if prohibited in your jurisdiction or use the Website in any way that violates applicable governing laws, regulations, or other government requirements. You will not transmit any content that encourages conduct that could constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violates any applicable governing law or regulation.
19.2(A) Loss means an amount that we are legally responsible for or pay in any form. Amounts include, for example, a judgment, a settlement, a fine, damages, injunctive relief, staff compensation, a decrease in property value, and expenses for defending against a claim for a loss (including fees for legal counsel, expert witnesses, and other advisers). A loss can be tangible or intangible; can arise from bodily injury, property damage, or other causes; can be based on tort, breach of contract, or any other theory or recovery; and includes incidental, direct, and consequential damages.
19.2(B) A loss is caused by an event if the loss would not have occurred without the event, even if the event is not a proximate cause of the loss.
19.3 Our Duty to Notify. If we have your contact information, we will notify you before the 30th day after we know or should reasonably have known of a claim for a loss that you might be obligated to pay. Our failure to give you timely notice does not terminate your obligation, except if that failure prejudices your ability to mitigate losses (but this exception does not apply if we do not have your contact information or cannot obtain your contact information in a commercially reasonable manner).
19.4 Legal Defense of a Claim. We have control over defending a claim for a loss (including settling it), unless we directyou to control the defense.You and we must cooperate with each other in good faith on a claim.
