You may not use a username or display name that is a name or trademark that is subject to any rights of another person or entity without their consent. You may not use a username or display name that we determine by our sole judgment to be offensive, vulgar, or obscene.

It is your responsibility to keep the password for your User Account secure and to never share it with any third party. Your account may only be used by you. If you become aware of any security breach or unauthorized use of your User Account, its password, or the email address associated with it, you must notify us immediately.
