The Service is not available to any Users previously removed from the Service by Appticles.com.

We may maintain different types of accounts for different types of Users. If you open an Appticles.com account on behalf of a company, organization, or other entity, then (a) "you" includes you and that entity, and (b) you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement, and that you agree to this Agreement on the entity's behalf. By connecting to Appticles.com with a third-party service, you give us permission to access and use your information from that service as permitted by that service, and to store your log-in credentials for that service.
You may never use another User's account without permission. When creating your account, you must provide accurate and complete information. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your account, and you must keep your account password secure. We encourage you to use "strong" passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your account. You must notify Appticles immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. Appticles will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account.
