  2. Passwords. You agree: to keep your password secure and confidential and to not allow anyone else to use your email address or password to access the App, the Sites or any Content; to not do anything which would assist anyone who is not a Registered User to gain access to any secured area of the App or the Sites, and; to not create additional registration accounts for the purpose of abusing the functionality of the App, the Sites or any Content, or other Users, or to seek to pass yourself off as another User.
