This is the grant of a license, not a transfer of title, and under this license you may not use the materials from the Site for any commercial purpose, or for any public display (outside of a class or course) OR remove any copyright or other proprietary notations from the materials. This license shall automatically terminate if you violate any of these restrictions and may be terminated by Townsend Press at any time.

3. Password and Account Security: 
Certain portions of the Site may ask you to create an account. If you choose to create such an account, you agree to provide only true, accurate, current, and complete information. You further agree to accept all responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password, if any, and that you will not sell, transfer, or assign your account or allow others to use it. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any user name and/or password that may be assigned to or selected by you so that others may not access any members-only or password-protected portions of the Site using your account and/or identity. Townsend Press reserves the right, in its sole discretion and without notice to you, to terminate your account and/or to restrict your access to all or part of the Site for any reason, including without limitation for extended periods of inactivity.
