The Subscriber, in his/her quality of Ordinary Member of the Association will be entitled to participate to all initiatives promoted by the Association and to the Annual General Meeting of the Association. The status of Ordinary Member of the Association and the status of Subscriber are in direct connection among one another. Should the user loose for whatever reason (e.g. cancellation as per Article 3 of this Agreement) one of them, he will automatically loose also the other.

4. Access codes
To access to the Service, the Subscriber will use a username and a password. These codes will be assigned automatically. The Subscriber may choose different personalised access codes so long as they do not previously exist in the Web Site's database. The Subscriber cannot request access codes containing injurious expressions, or names that may reasonably cause confusion with established trademarks and commercial names. The Subscriber agrees to make a diligent use of the access codes, and further commits to communicate to IDI any unauthorised use of the said codes as soon as this circumstance comes to the Subscriber's knowledge.
