I. SERVICES; TOKEN.
(a) Services. MYPW offers Products and Services which allow you to securely log in to applications through a secure, intuitive and cost effective mechanism. Specifically, MYPW distributes a password token which employs a "two-factor" authentication system, i.e., a security system which uses (1) a static identification number which you provide (a 4 digit pin number) and (2) a dynamically generated identification number provided by a token issued to you, which allows you to access content and services of third party Web sites which support MYPW's authentication password system. For more information on the Products and Services, please refer to the User Guide set forth at http://www.mypw.com.
(b) Token. As noted above, you understand and agree that some of the Products and Services require you to use a password token which shall be supplied by MYPW and leased to you. We have the unrestricted right, but not the obligation, to upgrade or change the token or the firmware therein, in our sole discretion, as necessary or desirable in order to provide the Products and Services to you in accordance with our specifications and requirements. The token will at all times remain the property of MYPW or its designee. You acknowledge that the token is merely a means through which the Products and Services are provided by us and may be disabled or changed by us at our discretion as we deem appropriate. You agree not to use the token for any purpose other than to use the Products and Services pursuant to this Agreement. During the term of this Agreement, MYPW may repair or replace the token and you agree that the token will not be serviced by anyone other than MYPW employees, agents, or designees. You shall not sell, transfer, lease, encumber or assign the token to any third party. You shall pay to MYPW the full cost for the replacement of any lost, stolen, unreturned, damaged, sold, transferred, leased, encumbered or assigned token, together with any incidental costs incurred by us relating to the replacement of the token. Within thirty (30) days of the expiration or termination of your applicable Products and Services plan, you agree to return the token to MYPW, at your sole cost. In the event you fail to return the token to MYPW within the foregoing timeframe, you hereby agree to pay MYPW fifteen dollars ($15.00), which MYPW can immediately deduct from your credit card on file.
II. YOUR REGISTRATION AND ACCOUNT

You will be charged for any premium services or extra fee features you subscribe to or use during that period's billing cycle. All fees and charges are payable in accordance with payment terms in effect at the time the fee or charge becomes payable. V. NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS.
