- Register via a profile on LinkedIn; Users who sign-up through LinkedIn are automatically activated, as it is considered that their email verification (double opt-in) has been already executed at the time of their registration in LinkedIn.
- Upon registering to the Platform, a Registered User creates: i) a User Account, including the above mandatory personal data and ii) a User Profile where each registered User can provide any personal data it wishes to voluntarily provide. More specifically:
- “User Account”: is only used by the Platform for internal purposes (relationship between the User and Platform)—User Account data is not visible to other Users and is not transferred to any third party.

- Users understand and acknowledge that they should provide the Platform only with data and information that is true, accurate and updated, as well as lawfully acquired and to keep this data and information accurate, true and updated at all times (and make any changes/updates necessary by using the appropriate settings in their User Account and/or User Profile). The Platform does not necessarily audit nor verify any of the data provided. However, the Platform reserves the right (but is under no obligation) to ask for more information from the Registered User and/or to seek clarifications regarding specific information and/or to refuse registration and/or to suspend or delete any User Account and Profile if any violation of the above comes to the Company’s attention.

To complete the creation of the personal User Account, Platform shall automatically generate a default password and send it to the email address of the User. The User shall then enter the User’s User Account by activating the default password. A User must then select a secret password. Users are advised to regularly change the password for security reasons; Users should also avoid using the same and/or easily detectable password(s) by introducing, where possible, not only letters and numbers, but also symbols in multiple combinations. In the event the User forgets the password, he/she may select the relevant “Forgot my Password” field and instructions will be sent to the User’s email in order to change the password. The account name and password shall identify uniquely each User in the Platform.
- Registration via LinkedIn: In case a User registers via his/her LinkedIn account, the name such User uses on LinkedIn will also appear as his/her Account name.

- Any act and/or omission through the User Account (including, but not limited to, the posting of Content, reviews, comments etc., the provision of information in the User Account, the submission of a takedown notice, the submission of a purchase and/or payment order etc.) shall be reasonably considered by the Platform as the act and/or omission of the Registered User, conducted with the Registered User’s prior approval and shall be binding on that Registered User. Each Registered User is solely responsible for the safety of his/her User Account and User Profile as well as for any loss or damage occurred to the User and/or to a third party and/or to the Platform from the use of that User Account up to the moment the User explicitly notifies us, at firstname.lastname@example.org, of any unauthorized access and/or use of his/her Account or any other breaches of security.
