3. Access to the Portal
You may obtain access to the Portal and the Services by being issued an Account (see below) or by being provided with a link to access the Portal. You may not access the Portal using another’s credentials and may not use any other unauthorized method to obtain access.
4. Account Creation
To access and use the Portal and the services, we may require you to register for an account or an account may be created for you (“Account”). You agree to provide accurate, current, and complete information during the registration process, and to update such information to keep it accurate, current, and complete. If you have an Account, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password, and for restricting access to your computer or device, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your registration, username, password, and/or Account. We therefore urge you not to share your Account credentials with anyone. We may, in our sole discretion, terminate your password, Account (or any part thereof) or use of the Portal or the Services at any time and for any or no reason.

Access to the Portal may also be provided through a one-time link that may require additional authentication. Any Account holder that provides access to the Portal to another user with a one-time link represents that the recipient is authorized to receive such information, and the Account holder shall remain responsible for all activity taken by the recipient of the link.
Account holders shall remain responsible for updating contact information and/or adding and removing additional users or recipients of links. If access should be denied to any individual for whom you have created an account or provided access to the portal (e.g., in the event of an employee termination), please email us at [email protected] to update, add or delete user information.

You may not attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Services or to any other user’s accounts, computer systems, or networks through password mining, keystroke logging, hacking, or any other means. You will not upload any files that contain viruses, Trojan horses, malware, spyware, worms, corrupted files, or any other material or software that may damage the operation of another computer. Any and all materials uploaded are subject to applicable federal, state, and international laws.

Any disputes that are not handled by arbitration shall be filed only in the state and federal courts located in New York County, New York, and you hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts.
23. Entire Agreement
This EULA, along with the Terms and all documents referenced therein, constitutes the entire and exclusive agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter of this EULA and cancels and supersedes any prior and contemporaneous understandings and agreements between the parties hereto with respect thereto. There are no representations, warranties, terms, conditions, undertakings or collateral agreements, express, implied or statutory, between you and us, oral or written other than as expressly set forth in this EULA and any terms expressly incorporated herein by reference. The headings in this EULA are for convenience of reference only and do not affect the construction or interpretation of this EULA.
To the extent that any provision of this EULA is declared by a court or other lawful authority of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, such provision shall be severed and deleted or limited so as to give effect to the intent of the parties insofar as possible and you and we will use our respective best efforts to substitute a new provision of like economic intent and effect for the illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision, and the remainder of this EULA shall continue in full force and effect with respect to all other provisions.
