1.1 Registering Your Account.
1.1.1 In order to access certain features of the Site you are required to become an eligible registered Accountholder. For purposes of the Terms, a “Accountholder” is an end user of the Services (collectively, a “Accountholder” or “Accountholders”) who have successfully completed our Eligibility Application and created an Accountholder account on the Site (“Account”), or have a valid account on the social networking service (“SNS”) through which the Accountholder has connected to the Services (each such account, a “Third-Party Account”) and also successfully completed our Eligibility Application to create an Account. Accountholders must be 18 years or older, who have properly registered, and whose registration is valid and accurate. For prospective Accountholders, once you complete and submit our eligibility verification and associated registration, and are accepted, at our sole discretion, you will become an Accountholder and continue such Accountholder status for as long as you maintain your eligibility status in good standing, and are otherwise in good standing. Once you complete and submit your registration, you have opted in to receive email communication from us (Please see our Privacy Notice regarding how to opt out of certain email communications). By becoming an Accountholder you represent that at all times during your Accountholder (including any Accountholder renewal terms) you remain an eligible Accountholder under the Terms. Accountholder is available only by a valid acceptance of users who have successfully completed the Site’s registration and verification process. If you submit an application and do not qualify, you may not use the Site to view product and service pricing, conduct transactions or use other services and benefits reserved exclusively for Accountholders. As an Accountholder, you agree to provide, and represent that you have at all times provided, true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Site’s registration and verification form.

You agree not to create an Account using a false identity or eligibility information, or on behalf of someone other than yourself (and you agree that violation of the foregoing will result in a fee of not less than $50,000).
