TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1. The Campus
The Campus is intended to serve as an online learning and reference environment through which registered users (“Users”) may subscribe for access to online courses (“Courses”) and associated self study materials, references and links to third-party websites that are not owned or controlled by BCC (“Self Study”) as presented by BCC instructors (“Instructors”), and to online exams (“Exams”). BCC offers for sale through the Campus certain products pertinent to the Courses (the terms applying to such pages are described in Section 3 (Book Store) below) and any similar pages created by BCC in the future, are described in Section 3 (Sales of Products by BCC) below).
2. Access to the Campus
B. In order to access the Websites, you will have to create an account. You may never use another’s account without his or her express permission and you may not provide another person with the username and password to access your account. 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. You must notify BCC immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. Although BCC will not be liable for your losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account, you may be liable for the losses of BCC or others due to such unauthorized use.
C. You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, “robots,” “spiders,” “offline readers,” etc., that accesses the Campus in a manner that sends more request messages to the BCC servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a conventional online web browser. Notwithstanding the foregoing, BCC grants the operators of public search engines permission to use spiders to copy materials from the Campus for the sole purpose of creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials. BCC reserves the right to revoke these exceptions, either generally or in specific cases, at any time without notice. You agree not to collect or harvest any personally identifiable information, including account names, from the Campus, nor to use the communication systems provided by the Campus for any commercial solicitation purposes. You agree not to solicit, for commercial purposes, any users of the Campus.

B. BCC reserves the right to amend or withdraw any Application at any time and for any reason.
C. You acknowledge that the terms of agreement with your mobile network provider (“Mobile Provider”) will continue to apply when using an Application. As a result, you may be charged by your Mobile Provider for access to network connection services for the duration of the connection while accessing an Application or any such third party charges as may arise. You accept responsibility for any such charges that arise. If you are not the bill payer for the mobile telephone or handheld device being used to access an Application, you will be assumed to have received permission from the bill payer for using the Application.
D. BCC does not accept any responsibility whatsoever for unavailability of any Application, or any difficulty or inability to download or access content or any other communication system failure which may result in an Application being unavailable. BCC will not be responsible for any support or maintenance for Applications.
