UserAccount 

You must sign up for a personalized account (“User Account”) with FBINAA in order to access the full range of features offered by the FBINAA Application and Services.
. When registering for a User Account, FBINAA will ask you to provide certain information. Such information may include Membership Data and/or other personally identifiable information. Additionally, for some of FBINAA Applications, if and as such functionality is available, you may log into the FBINAA Application using an authorized third party social network account, such as a Facebook or Instagram account. In creating your User Account, you agree to submit accurate, current and complete information about yourself and keep such information updated. FBINAA reserves the right to suspend or terminate User Accounts which it suspects are used in contradiction to the Terms of Service and/or contain information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete.


When you create your User Account, you will choose a personal, non-transferable password. User Accounts may not be “shared” or used by more than one individual. After you accept this Terms of Service and your User Account registration has been accepted by FBINAA, your User Account will be established. You are solely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your User Account, whether or not such use was authorized by you. Please read our Privacy Policy located at www.fbinaa.org, which describes how FBINAA collects, uses, discloses, manages and stores your personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”). You agree and understand that you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of all user names and passwords associated with any User Account you use to access the Services. Additionally, you may not use anyone else’s User Account at any time, without the permission of such account holder.

However, you could be held liable for losses incurred by FBINAA, another user or any third party due to misappropriation and use of your User Account. If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your User Account, please notify FBINAA immediately at
info@fbinaa.org.

 

Once you create a User Account, you will be deemed a Registered User and will be able to access, review, and update your User Account information through the FBINAA Application. You may also request to access and change your personal information and privacy preferences by contacting us at info@fbinaa.org  


If you wish to deactivate your User Account, you can do so by contacting FBINAA at 
info@fbinaa.org and/or the Client as indicated on the “Contact Us” information in the Application. When you deactivate your User Account, some or all of the information stored and maintained as part of your account may be retained from our servers, including the User Content uploaded via the FBINAA Application and Services. 


Registration Email and Contact by FBINAA 


We reserve the right to send a one-time registration confirmation e-mail, and infrequent service alert messages to users to inform them of specific changes that may impact their ability to use a service they have previously signed up for, regardless of email contact opt-in status. We also reserve the right to contact you if compelled to do so as part of a legal proceeding or if there has been a violation of any applicable licensing, warranty, or purchase agreements. FBINAA is retaining this right because in limited cases we feel that we may need to contact you as a matter of law or regarding matters that will be important to you. This does not allow us to contact you to market a new or existing service if you have asked us not to do so, and issuance of these types of communications is rare. 


When you create a User Account with FBINAA and/or provide your e-mail address and other personal identification information, based on your personal preferences, we may periodically contact you via e-mail and provide information about special offers and promotions that may be of interest to you. These communications will relate to FBINAA offers and/or the promotions of select, reputable third parties with whom FBINAA has a strategic marketing relationship because they offer products or services that we believe would be of interest to you. We may use a third party e-mail service provider to send e-mails to you. This service provider is prohibited from using your e-mail address for any purpose other than to send FBINAA related e-mail. If you do not wish to receive e-mails with updates and information please unsubscribe by sending an email to: info@fbinaa.org. In addition, every time you receive an e-mail, you will be provided the choice to opt-out of future e-mails by following the instructions provided in the e-mail. You may also opt-out online by updating your User Account as described in the User Account section of this Privacy Policy (above). 


To ensure that your request is honored, you must provide FBINAA with information sufficient for us to accurately identify and access your records. The information we require is your full name, address and the email address you provided to FBINAA when you requested services or products. FBINAA reserves the right to contact you to verify that we have accurately identified your record. 


User Content 


User Account holders may upload pictures, data, information, and other material to be posted on and accessed through the FBINAA Application and Services (“User Content”). Certain information may be available to all users including users without User Accounts, such as information in your publicly-accessible account profile or publicly-viewable pictures you post (“Public Information”). Other information is only intended for particular users, such as personal communications between users (“Private Information”). Subject to this Terms of Service, your User Content may be used in any manner that has been authorized by you. You acknowledge and agree that FBINAA has no liability of any kind should users or third parties access to your User Content, whether Public Information or Private Information. Furthermore, User Content you submit, post, or display will be able to be viewed by other users of the FBINAA Application and Services and, potentially, through third party services and websites.


FBINAA does not own any User Content and will not monitor, edit, or disclose any information regarding you or your User Account, including any Private Information, without your prior permission except in accordance with this Terms of Service or Privacy Policy (www.fbinaa.org/privacy). FBINAA also does not, as a matter of practice, review, inspect, edit or monitor any User Content posted, stored, or accessed by you or any other user of the Services. However, FBINAA reserves the right, solely upon its own discretion, to refuse, remove, or disable access to User Content that FBINAA learns may be illegal or may violate the terms of this Terms of Service, although it has no obligation to do so. FBINAA’s action or inaction to regulate content or conduct or to enforce against any potential violation of this Terms of Service by any user (or any other third party) does not waive FBINAA’s right to implement or not implement regulation or enforcement measures with respect to any subsequent or similar content, conduct, or potential Terms of Service violation. 

FBINAA does not control, is not responsible for, and makes no representations or warranties with respect to any User Content. You are solely responsible for your access to, use of and/or reliance on any User Content. You must conduct any necessary, appropriate, prudent or judicious investigation, inquiry, research, and due diligence with respect to any User Content. You are also responsible for any content that you post or transmit as well as all content posted or transmitted through or by use of your User Account. 


Although you retain your rights to User Content you submit, post or display on or through the FBINAA Application and Services, by submitting, posting or displaying User Content on or through the FBINAA Application or Services, you grant FBINAA a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, publish, transmit, display and distribute the User Content in any and all media or distribution methods. This license allows FBINAA to make User Content available to third parties for publication, broadcast, or distribution, at no compensation to you.

Although FBINAA strives to make sure that all data on the Website is secure, you hereby acknowledge and accept that it may be possible for an unauthorized third party to access, view, copy, modify and distribute your User Content.
