5. WS Product Functionality
WS Products allow you to enjoy various features, functionalities and services, which may change from time to time (collectively, the "WS Product Functions"). The WS Product Services are provided by WebShields and third party suppliers who offer content and services in conjunction with or through an WS Product (the "Third Party Partners"). The WS Product Functions may be provided via your desktop, within your browser (which may include both your active browser and any other compatible Internet browser(s) resident on your computer), or within separate browser windows displayed over or under your principal browser window or by other means. WS Products Functions may provide you with Internet search functionalities (for example, via a search box located within the WS Product itself), the ability to reset your homepage, start page and/or tab page, the ability to reset your browser default search setting (thereby allowing you access to our Internet set features via your browser's address bar, omnibox and/or chrome search box), and/or links to other WebShields products or websites.
6. Third-Party Partners
A) Third-Party Services and Content. The WS Products may integrate, be integrated into, bundled, or be provided in connection with third-party services, feeds and/or content. If you are installing an WS Product that includes third party services and third party content, such services and content are subject to such third party's terms of services and privacy policies, which may be found on the relevant Third Party Partner's website. WS Products may provide access to search results or other links to Third Party Partner websites or resources. WebShields has no control over such sites and resources, in which you acknowledge and agree that WebShields is not responsible for the availability of such external sites or resources, and does not endorse nor is responsible or liable for any content, advertising, products, or other materials on or available from such sites or resources.

We have security measures in place that are designed to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access to information we collect online through our WS Products. We utilize both industry and proprietary standards to preserve the confidentiality of information. We seek to limit access to our users' information to employees who we believe reasonably need access to that information to provide products or services to you or in order to perform their jobs. Unfortunately, no security system can be 100% secure; accordingly, we cannot guarantee the security of the information that we collect online.
8. Registration and Password

Any registration required by a Third Party Partner is not governed by this EULA and you should refer to the relevant Third Party Partner's website for their policies.
B) Passwords. You are the sole and exclusive guardian of any password and ID combination issued or chosen by to you. Maintaining the confidentiality and security of your Password(s) and ID(s) is solely your responsibility. You are fully responsible for all transactions undertaken by means of any account opened, held, accessed or used via your password and ID. You shall notify us immediately and confirm in writing any unauthorized use of accounts or any breach of security, including without limitation any loss, theft or unauthorized use of your password(s), and/or ID(s) or any related account. If we have reasonable grounds to suspect that the security of your Password and/or ID has been compromised, we may suspend or terminate your account, refuse any and all current or future use of the services, and pursue any appropriate legal remedies.
