Article 1 SUBSCRIPTIONS: SUBSCRIPTION / DURATION
1-1. In case of online subscription, the Subscriber must fill in the fields of the form with complete and accurate data.

In any event, Subscriber (i) agrees to indemnify Frontline Media from any and all consequences that may arise from such incomplete or erroneous statement; (ii) will not avoid any of its obligations by relying on the provision of erroneous information.
1-2. Each individual Subscriber or person acting on behalf of the Subscriber (e.g., employee, agent, service provider) who uses the Subscription (a “User”) has his or her own user name and password. The Subscriber undertakes to communicate, at the time of subscription, the list of Users. An updated list must be provided to Frontline Media immediately upon each change.

The Subscriber, as well as any User, undertakes not to disseminate its user name and password to third parties, including when they are also Subscribers and/or Users. Each User will only use his own username and password, without ever using those of a third party, which the Subscriber will ensure.
