By using the Services, you represent and warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract with CCF, are not associated with a company providing similar services, and meet all of the foregoing eligibility requirements.

Accessing the Services and Account Security
We reserve the right to withdraw or amend the Website or any content, material, or other Services, in our sole discretion without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the Services is unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of the Website, or the entire Website, to users, including registered users.
You are responsible for both:
Making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to the Services.
If you choose, or are provided with, a user name, password, or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any other person or entity. You also acknowledge that your account is personal to you and agree not to provide any other person with access to the Services, the Website, or portions of them using your user name, password, or other security information — not even to another person associated with your business. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your user name or password or any other breach of security. If you are using a public or shared computer, you also agree to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. You should use particular caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information.

However, we do not undertake to review all material before it is posted to the Services, and cannot ensure prompt removal of objectionable material after it has been posted. Accordingly, we assume no liability for any action or inaction regarding transmissions, communications, or content provided by any user or third party. We have no liability or responsibility to anyone for performance or nonperformance of the activities described in this section.
