- Law enforcement, governmental agencies, or authorized third-parties, in response to a verified request relating to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity or any other activity that may expose us, you, or any other RSVPify user to legal liability.

NO SPAM, SPYWARE OR SPOOFING
We and our users do not tolerate spam. Make sure to set your RSVPify communication preferences so we communicate to you as you prefer.

ACCESSING, REVIEWING AND CHANGING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Your password is the key to your account. Use unique numbers, letters and special characters, and do not disclose your RSVPify password to anyone. If you do share your password or your personal information with others, remember that you are responsible for all actions taken in the name of your account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately notify RSVPify and change your password.
