2. REGISTRATION; RULES FOR USER CONDUCT AND USE OF THE PLATFORM
The Platform is not intended for the use of minors or anyone under the age of 18, or, if your state of residence designates a higher age of majority, such higher age. By creating a user account, the User represents that the User is at least 18 years old or such age as is designated by the User’s state of residence to open an online account without parental consent.
Each User must supply a unique email address in order to create an account on the Platform.

A User’s account will have a unique username and password to access the Platform, and shall be affiliated with the email address provided in connection with registration. The Company will have the ability, but not the duty, to contact you and/or accept messages from you via your Account and/or email address. By creating an Account you consent to receive electronic communications from Clocr via your Account and email address.
Each User must register for its own Account on the Platform. Users may not share an account on this Platform. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username, password, and Account information. You agree to notify us immediately at email@example.com of any unauthorized use of your password and/or Account. You acknowledge and agree that the Company will not be responsible for any liabilities, losses, damages, or claims arising out of the unauthorized use of your Account, username, or password.

DIRECTIVES AND DEFAULT.
If at the time of the User’s death or incapacity, the User has not authorized a Recipient to receive the User Content, nor finalized a directive, allocation, or Authorization through the Services for some or all of the User Content, or opted-out of the default directive for the User’s Accounts or for any User Content, any access requests to the User Content, except where otherwise required by law, will be governed under the default hierarchy access rules of the Revised Uniform Fiduciary Access to Digital Assets Act (“RUFADAA”) of the User’s state of residence in existence at the time of the User’s death or incapacity. Provided, however, if the User resides in a state or jurisdiction which has not adopted a version of RUFADAA, the version then in effect under the laws of the State of Texas shall control, and if the user has not provided any other directives, then the provisions of the User’s Last Will and Testament (the “Will”) that has been submitted and accepted for probate or other legal writing shall control. In the event, the User’s Will is silent on access to the User’s Account or if the User has no Will or other legal writing, the provisions of this Terms of Service shall control, and the Company, unless otherwise directed by the User, may disclose the User Content to the legal representative of the deceased User’s estate, if the User is deceased, or may disclose the User Content to the User’s agent designated under a power of attorney or to a court-appointed guardian for the User if the User is incapacitated, or as otherwise required by law. However, in the event there are any claims, disputes, or disagreements as to what individual or fiduciary has the right to receive the User Content, the Company shall not release any information in connection with the User Account or the User Content until directed to do so through a court order from the jurisdiction where the User resides, if the User is still living, or from the jurisdiction where the deceased User’s estate is being administered, if the User is deceased. The Company shall also be indemnified and released from any claims, disputes, or damages, as a result of the disclosure of the User Account and the User Content to any court-ordered designee or Recipient and may, in the Company’s sole discretion, require additional documents or agreements signed in this regard prior to disclosing the User Content.
Except as otherwise provided herein, or as designated by the User through the Platform, at the time of the User’s death, the Recipient must provide the Company with at least two methods for communication, including an email address (required) and/or telephone number or fax number in order for the Company to begin to process any requests in connection with transferring any of the User Content to the Recipient, and the Recipient must also create a separate Clocr account to receive any of the User Content as directed by the User or as otherwise provided herein.
NO GUARANTEE OF PERSONAL ACCOUNT ACCESS AFTER THE USER’S DEATH.
The Company will not take any action that would breach or encourage the breach of any agreement or other terms of service between the User and the institutions with which the User has individual accounts or would result in the violation of any state or federal laws. The Company may make requests or provide notices on behalf of the User in accordance with the directives set forth and authorized by the User through the Platform, and if no such directive is provided by the User, then the Company shall proceed in accordance with the above stated Default Directive.
In the case of a User’s incapacity, in order to process any directives selected by the User or to otherwise access the User Content, the Company must receive the following: a certified copy of a power of attorney for the User or a copy of any court-appointed orders designating a guardian for the user, a photocopy of the User’s government ID, and a photocopy of the government ID for the agent or guardian of the User. The Company may also request any other documents or additional information available to a service provider, to process any User Content access requests, as provided under the version of RUFADAA enacted by the State of Texas and in effect at the time of such requests.
The User and/or any Recipient of the User Content is solely responsible for all third-party costs, including but not limited to, document fees, government fees, site fees, and any other costs incurred in performing the Company’s Services as ordered by the User or directed by a Recipient. In the event that the Company, in its discretion, advances any third party costs on behalf of the User or a Recipient, such costs must be fully reimbursed to the Company within thirty (30) days of the User or the Recipient receiving an invoice from the Company. Upon request, the User or Recipient is entitled to itemized receipts for all third-party expenses.
