We do not have access to and do not at any time request you to provide us with access to your password, unless you have given us explicit written permission to access your account pursuant to a request for assistance or support.
It is Your responsibility to ensure that the information You provide is accurate, secure, and not misleading. You account user ID and password should not (i) contain the names and information of another person; or (ii) use words that are the trademarks or the property of another party (including ours); or (iii) use words that are vulgar, obscene or in any other way inappropriate. At the time of creation and each time you access your account thereafter, we track your IP address for the purposes of determining the geographical location from which you are accessing the Platform.

It is necessary and mandatory for us to collect and access the information covered above paragraph, for us to be able to provide you with the Services. Should you choose not to provide any of the information or not to allow us to access any of the same, you will be unable to access or use any part of the Services.
While we make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the data stored on our servers is persistent and always available, we will not be responsible in the event of failure of the third-party servers or any other factors outside our reasonable control, that may cause all or any part of the Merchant Data to be permanently deleted, irretrievable, or temporarily inaccessible.
