Despite these and other safeguards we have in place, we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse, unauthorized acquisition, or alteration of data will not occur. You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your device and account by, among other things, choosing a unique and complex password that nobody else knows or can easily guess and keeping your log-in and password private.
