The MYGOV site requires users to register to obtain MYGOV Services. All registrations are subject to permission from MYGOV. Users registering to work in a particular agency or government agency are subject to permission from that agency. By registering for these services, you agree to: (1) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as requested by MYGOV or on the MYGOV website, and (2) maintain and update the registration information to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. In addition to other grounds for suspension or termination of your use of the MYGOV Services, if you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or if MYGOV has reasonable grounds to suspect that the information you provide is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, MYGOV has the right to suspend or terminate your access and refuse you any and all use of the site. Agencies or government agencies also have the right to suspend or terminate your access to their agency. Agencies may terminate their accounts at any time subject to their contracts with MYGOV. Users registered through an agency cannot terminate their accounts. Upon request, agencies with terminated accounts will receive a digital copy of their data, but not proprietary data. Other terminated accounts have no rights of access or rights to any data or information left on the system. Termination of an account does not in any way negate the registrant from fiscal or other obligations they created by being a registrant or by using the site.
Passwords and Security
Access to MYGOV Services requires you to choose a user name and password. If you do so, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account and for logging out of your account at the end of each session. In selecting a user name, you agree that you will not: (1) select or use a screen name of another person with the intent to impersonate that person, (2) use a name subject to the rights of any person without their authorization, or (3) use a screen name that is offensive to people of ordinary sensitivities, illegal or infringing. You are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree: (1) to notify MYGOV immediately of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (2) to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. MYGOV cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this section.
