Effective August 2016
Welcome to the FirstTwo. Please read these terms of service (the “Terms”) carefully as they form a contract between you and FirstTwo, Inc. (“FirstTwo,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) that governs your access and use of the website located at www.firsttwo.com, together with the services and software provided by us (collectively, the “Services”).
1. YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS
These Terms contain the terms and conditions that govern your use of the Services, as well as your rights and responsibilities with respect to the Services. Your use of the Services constitutes your acceptance and agreement to these Terms. If you do not agree with these Terms, you are prohibited from accessing the Services and must immediately discontinue using the Service. You may use the Services only in compliance with these Terms and only if you have the power to form a contract with FirstTwo and are not barred under any applicable laws from doing so.
2. CHANGES TO THESE TERMS
FirstTwo reserves the right to add, delete, or modify any term or condition within these Terms at any time and in its sole discretion. If we make a change to any term or condition, we will notify you by posting a change notice on the Services. In the event of substantive changes to these Terms, you may be notified by email of the changes. If any modification is unacceptable to you, you should immediately stop using the Services. Your continued use of the Services following notice of a change in the Terms will constitute your binding acceptance of the changes.
To obtain access to the Services beyond navigating the website located at www.firsttwo.com, you must create an account with FirstTwo by completing a registration form and selecting a username and password (become a “Registered User”). During registration you must provide us contact information (such as your name and email address) and employer information (the name of your organization or agency). By submitting your employer information, you are representing that you are a current employee of the employer you provide. If you are registering for access to a paid component of the Services, you may also be asked to provide certain financial information, such as a valid credit card number and expiration date, as further detailed in Section 7.1.
All registration information you supply must be complete and accurate. You are required to maintain and update this information to ensure completeness and accuracy. You may not share your account credentials with anyone; you alone are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and its password, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your account. You agree to notify FirstTwo immediately upon discovery of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security.
Please be aware that FirstTwo reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to deactivate, change and/or require you to change your FirstTwo username for any reason or for no reason.
If you are using the Services pursuant to a service agreement your employer or organization has with us, then these Terms are integrated into and are a part of that service agreement. In the event of any inconsistency between these Terms and such service agreement, the service agreement and any relevant customer order attached to such service agreement shall govern your relationship with us.

FirstTwo will use secure socket layer (SSL) encryption that permits your sensitive payment information to be securely collected and transmitted.
You can cancel your Subscription at any time. Please note that you must cancel your Subscription before it renews for a subsequent month in order to avoid being charged for the next month's Subscription fee. If you cancel your Subscription, the cancellation will become effective at the end of the then-current monthly Subscription period.
