Each User login credential is individual to that User only, and cannot be used by anybody else. You are responsible for ensuring that any user IDs and passwords required for you or your Users to use Services are kept safe and confidential. You will promptly notify us upon discovery if the security of a user ID or password is, or may be, compromised.
