When registering for my services or purchasing products on my website, you may be asked to create a User Name and Password.

I urge you to keep your password in a safe place and do not share it with others. I am not responsible for activity that results from your failure to choose a secure password or to safeguard that password from others. Whenever you finish any session on my website, you should ensure that you have logged out of that session, especially if you are using public computers (such as in libraries or internet cafes).
