The User is responsible for maintaining the secrecy of the unique password and account information, and for controlling access to email communications from WiredScore, at all times. However, WiredScore cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information the User transmits to WiredScore or guarantee that information on the service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed. WiredScore is not responsible for the functionality or security measures of any third party.
