After you have done so, the contract can only be terminated in accordance with the provisions of Point 3 below.

  • 1.3 You are solely accountable to Billions & Billions for your Account and for any actions carried out using your Account. In this regard, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless Billions & Billions from any and all claims, demands or damages that might result from any actions carried out using your Account.

You can, however, set up additional users for your Account. In the event that you should set up additional users for your Account, you will be liable for all and any actions carried out by these additional users to the same extent as for your personal user.
