9. Your Username and Password

9.1 All users of the Website are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their usernames and passwords. The "main user account" for a school or a LA is the first user account created when the Licence was purchased.


9.2 The details of the main user account are sent to the email address given at the time of the Order. The main user account for a school is then able to see all the other user accounts (10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 per school depending on the licence type purchased) which are visible in the My Account link when the main user logs in. The main user is then able to distribute these details to users in the school. These are always up to date even if one of the other users has changed either the username or the password which was created when the Licence was purchased. The main user is responsible for ensuring that usernames and passwords are given only to users in the school for which they were purchased.

9.3 Please ensure that the details which we hold about you in the My Account area of the Website are correct and complete and inform us immediately of any changes to the information that you provided when registering.
