Security and Password

85 Broads has implemented reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. Each user has a unique user name and password. Additionally, 85 Broads uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), which encrypts information the user inputs into the website. Information is stored in a back-end database. Only 85 Broads employees and website administrators have access to this information. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not be able to access this information and use your personal information for improper purposes.

Members will receive a user name and password and account designation upon completing the Site's registration process. As a Member, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the user name and password, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your user name and password. You agree to (a) immediately notify 85Broads of any unauthorized use of your user name and password or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. 85Broads cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section. Without limitation to the generality of the foregoing, due to the nature of Internet, computers, data flow, and other technical and economical practicalities, the site, like most computer data and Internet applications, is vulnerable to various security issues and hence should be considered unsecured. By using the Site and the Internet in general, you may be subject to various risks, including, among others, eavesdropping, sniffing, spoofing, forgery, spamming, "imposturing", tampering, breaking passwords, harassment, fraud, electronic trespassing, hacking, system contamination including without limitation, viruses, worms, Trojan horses, causing unauthorized, damaging or harmful access and/or retrieval of information and data on your computer and other forms of activity that may even be considered unlawful. Information (including registration data, passwords and User Content) received or delivered or intended to be made available on and through the site may be subject to these and other security or privacy hazards or may not reach its destination or reach an erroneous address or recipient. The Site is not different than other applications in this respect. Without limitation of the foregoing, although we take seriously the security of all member accounts and other personal and non-personal information associated with our visitors and participants, due to the open communication nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that your account will be free from unauthorized access by third parties.
