We reserve the right to suspend or terminate the Customer Account, or the access of any Authorized User, for any reason, including if any registration information is inaccurate, untrue or incomplete, or if you or any of your Authorized Users fail to maintain the security of any Access Credentials. You agree to, and will ensure that each Authorized User will, notify us immediately upon learning of any unauthorized access to a Customer Account or any other suspected security breach.
