These terms are void where prohibited by law, and the right to access and use the site is revoked in any such jurisdiction.
AccuScore reserves the right to change or modify these Terms or any policy or guideline of the Site at any time and in its sole discretion. You hereby waive any right you may have to receive specific notice of changes or modifications to the Terms. Therefore, you should periodically review these Terms and all applicable Site policies as any changes or modifications will be effective immediately once they have been posted online at http://accuscore.com/terms-and-conditions. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes or modifications will confirm your acceptance of those changes or modifications or if you do not agree to the changes or modifications, you must stop using the Services.
1.1 Registration and Account Policies.
User IDs and Passwords – All Accounts. Any time you are required to open an account to use or access the Site or Service, regardless of whether such account is a free account or requires the payment of fees (whether a one-time or ongoing payments), all of the following terms will apply:
a. Registration. You must complete the registration process by providing the complete and accurate information requested on the registration form. You will also be asked to provide a user name (a “User ID”) and password.
b. Protection of User ID and Password. You are entirely responsible for all use of your User ID and for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. You may not use the account, User ID, or password of someone else at any time, and you may not permit others to use your User ID or password. You agree to notify AccuScore immediately on any unauthorized use of your account, User ID, or password. AccuScore shall not be liable for any loss that you incur as a result of someone else using your User ID or password, either with or without your knowledge. You may be held liable for any losses incurred by AccuScore, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents, representatives and business partners due to someone else’s use of your account, User ID or password.
d. Multiple Logins Prohibited. Regardless of whether your account is a free account or a paid account, you are only permitted to log into that account from a single location at any given time. Multiple concurrent logins into the same account are strictly prohibited and are a material breach of these Terms. AccuScore may suspend or terminate your account immediately under such circumstances.
e. The Name Your Price special offer is designed to accommodate those affected by the poor economy. AccuScore has a minimum limit, or floor price, per annual membership that it has to stand by in order to maintain a high level of service to our community. If your offer price is less than this minimum limit, AccuScore may elect not to accept your offer and in lieu of that AccuScore may offer you with an Annual Membership at the minimum threshold. If you refuse this counter-offer then the special offer is null and void.

will apply to any “AccuScore Advisor” or other account that you open and that
requires one-time or ongoing payments in order to be maintained:

If your paid account requires regular, ongoing payments to AccuScore, then as part of your registration you will be required to provide a method for making such payments. Payments for a paid account may be made by automatic credit card or check debit and you hereby authorize AccuScore or its designee to transact such payments on your behalf. Unless you have a good faith reason to believe the credit card (or other approved facility) you use to pay for your account is lost or stolen, you agree not to report that credit card (or other approved facility) as lost or stolen. Nor will you dispute any authorized charge by AccuScore or its designee. You agree and acknowledge that, in addition to any liability you may face under applicable laws, it will be a breach of these Terms for which AccuScore may terminate your account and your ability to use the Site and the Services if you fraudulently report the credit card (or other approved facility) used to pay for your account as stolen, or if you fraudulently report that an authorized charge by AccuScore or its designee is unauthorized. Further, to the extent AccuScore suffers any damages as a result of such fraud, you may be liable to AccuScore and AccuScore reserves the right to pursue any and all legal remedies available to it.
b. Termination of Paid Accounts.
