1.         Eligible Subscribers.

            (a)         Our Services are eligible and available only to individuals and entities who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law and are granted the status of "subscribers" after satisfactorily completing the subscriber registration process. Further, our Services are not available to temporarily or indefinitely suspended subscribers.  If you do not qualify, please do not use our Services.

            (b)        The subscriber registration form requires you to provide us with certain true, complete and accurate information about yourself.  You are also required to provide us with a valid email address.  When you submit your registration information, you will receive a welcome letter via email confirming your subscription and you will be given a temporary Customer ID. Transmission times depend on your Internet Service Provider, but it typically takes only a few minutes to receive your subscription confirmation. Upon acceptance of your subscription, you will receive another e-mail with your permanent Customer ID number. Both the Customer ID and email address are needed to log on to these Services.
