Registration and Security.
In connection with your use of the Services, you may establish or otherwise receive Lacoupe user IDs, passwords and other security codes (“User Codes”) that you may need in order to access and use certain portions of the Services.
You agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by any registration forms (“Registration Information”) and maintain and promptly update the Registration Information to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. You hereby authorize Lacoupe, directly or through third parties, to make any inquiries we consider necessary to validate your Registration Information. Lacoupe reserves the right to vigorously pursue legal actions against all persons who misrepresent personal information in any transactions or are otherwise untruthful about their identity, and to suspend or cancel accounts registered with inaccurate or incomplete information. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge that Lacoupe cannot guarantee the accuracy of any information submitted by any user, nor any identity information about any user. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your User Codes.

If you permit access to your User Codes by third parties, then you agree to defend, indemnify and hold Lacoupe harmless against any liability, losses, damages or costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) arising out of, or resulting from, such access and related use of the Services. You also agree to immediately notify Lacoupe if you become aware of any loss or theft of your User Codes or any unauthorized use of your User Codes. Lacoupe reserves the right to block your User Codes for any reason.

• (1) you notify Lacoupe within 60 days from date of the applicable transaction that you wish to dispute any charge relating thereto, and
• (2) that you have made reasonable, good faith efforts to resolve such dispute with Lacoupe directly, and such efforts have failed.
