You have to establish an account (the "Account") in order to use GBANGA (except for those domains of the websites to which MILLFORM allows access without registration). You can only establish one Account. To enregister, you will be required to provide MILLFORM with certain personal information. Your failure to supply accurate information to MILLFORM when requested, or to update that information as it changes, shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement.
During the registration process, you will be required (among other details) to select a username and a password that are unique to the Account (collectively "Login Information"). You may not share, sell or trade the Account or the Login Information with anyone other than as expressly set forth herein.
You acknowledge that you have no ownership or other property interest in the Account, and you further acknowledge that all rights in and to the Account are owned by MILLFORM.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Login Information, and YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL USES OF YOUR LOGIN INFORMATION, whether or not authorized by you. In the event that you become aware of or reasonably suspect any breach of security, you must immediately notify MILLFORM by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Only MILLFORM or its licensees have the right to host GBANGA.
