2.0 Use of Website/Account
A User may browse the Website and view content without creating a Member Account, but as a condition to the User using certain aspects of the Website, you must register and login into a Member Account. If you do register a Member Account, you consent on your behalf or on the behalf of a User where authorised, to become a Member of the RAC when you submit the information required to register a Member’s Account. You warrant and agree that you will provide RAC with accurate and complete information (including, but not limited to a Member name ("Member Name"), date of birth, gender, school name, guardian name, postal address, e-mail address, contact phone number and a password that the Member will use to access the Website) and to keep the Member Account information accurate and up-to-date at all times. Failure to do so shall constitute a breach of this Agreement, which may result in immediate de-activation of the Member Account. You acknowledge and agree that any details needed to register a Member Account may be provided to third parties.

You shall not:
- create any Member Account for anyone other than yourself or a User for which you are authorised;
- use a Member Name that is the name of another person with the intent to impersonate that person;

You are solely responsible and liable for activity that occurs on your Member Account and shall be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. You shall never use another Member’s Account without such other Member’s prior express permission. You must not disclose your password to any person or allow any other person to use or access your Member Account or your Member Name or password.
