- Lapsed Accounts
In order to keep the NewPath membership roster current, if any user of the Website (Member) does not access his or her account for a period of 365 days or more, NewPath may, in its sole discretion, terminate such Member's account. NewPath will endeavor to notify a Member of NewPath’s intent to terminate such Member's account by notice to such Member's provided email address at least 30 days prior to deactivation. If the Member fails to respond to such email notice with 15 days after the day it is sent by NewPath, such Member's account will be terminated as noted above. Therefore, NewPath strongly recommends that all Members keep their accounts and contact data current and in use. While NewPath desires to prevent active accounts from being terminated prematurely, NewPath has no obligation to maintain accounts that appear to NewPath to have been abandoned. Each Member agrees that failure to access his or her account for 365 days or more conclusively indicates that such Member's account has been abandoned and that the account may therefore be terminated. Members are prohibited from impersonating another and are required and agree to provide true and complete information as requested.
By becoming a Member, you confirm that the information provided in this form is true and that you agree to abide by this Agreement regarding the use of the Website.
