5. USER ACCOUNT, PASSWORD, SECURITY AND ELECTRONIC ACCOUNT SERVICES.
(a) ONLINE ACCOUNT ACCESS. For certain types of features available through the website or software, including the Volsage Real-Time Options Content Service (the “Real-time Service”), we require the use of encryption technologies provided for your protection and/or your use of a user identification name (“UserID”) and password after setting up a user account (“User Account”). You may never use another person’s User Account and/or UserID.
(b) USER ACCOUNT AND PASSWORD. We use reasonable precautions to protect the privacy of your UserID, password and User Account information by utilizing a Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) connection. Accordingly, your UserID, password and User Account information are encrypted using an SSL connection and are not expected to be read in an intelligible form as they travel to the website. You, however, are ultimately responsible for protecting your UserID, password and User Account information from disclosure to third parties, and you are not permitted to circumvent the use of required encryption technologies. You are required to take reasonable precautions to safeguard your UserID and password. You agree to never leave your computer unattended while using the Real-time Service and to always exit the Real-time Service by clicking on “Sign Out.” You also agree to immediately notify Volsage of any unauthorized use of your UserID, password and/or User Account, or any other breach of security by using the “contact us” function, or through the online message center (if available). You are solely responsible for any activity that occurs with respect to your User Account and UserID. While we provide certain encryption technologies and use other reasonable precautions to protect your confidential information and provide suitable security, we do not and cannot guarantee or warrant that information transmitted through the Internet is secure, or that such transmissions are free from delay, error, interception or interruption.
(c) RELIANCE BY VOLSAGE. You authorize Volsage to rely on your UserID and password to identify you when you use the Real-time Service, and as signature authorization for any payment made using the Real-time Service.
(d) SECURITY. Volsage is committed to protecting the security and confidentiality of information about you and your User Account. Volsage uses, and may in the future use, several different security methods to protect your Account and User Account information.
(e) ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION.
(i) Email and Online Message Center. When you enroll in the Real-time Service, you must designate a primary email address that will be used for receiving electronic communication. To the extent that Volsage maintains an online message center now or in the future, such exchange of communications shall be considered an electronic communication and may be utilized by Volsage for providing you notices pursuant to these Terms, as required by Applicable Law (as permitted) or generally regarding your Account(s) with Volsage. Volsage will NEVER send you email requesting confidential information such as Bank Account numbers, usernames, or passwords and you should NEVER respond to any email requesting such information. If you receive such an email purportedly from Volsage, do not respond to the email and notify Volsage by using the “contact us” feature.
(ii) Usage of Electronic Communication. By your enrollment in the Real-time Service, you agree to receive these Terms and any disclosures or notices required by Applicable Law and all other communications electronically to the email address you designate in your account profile. You also agree that Volsage may respond to any communication you send to Volsage with an electronic communication, regardless of whether your original communication with Volsage was an electronic communication. Any electronic communication Volsage sends to you will be considered received within 5 calendar days of the date such communication is sent by computer servers utilized by Volsage to the email address you designate in your account profile or posted to Volsage’s online message center (if applicable). To the extent permissible under Applicable Law, any electronic communication you send to Volsage will not be effective until Volsage has had a reasonable opportunity to act on the electronic communication. You should not rely on electronic communication if you need to communicate with Volsage immediately and, in no event, should your sole method of communication with Volsage regarding any emergency be by electronic communication. Volsage may require you to provide written confirmation of any verbal or electronic notice of alleged error by Volsage.
