For some areas of the Site, you may have to complete a registration process or create a profile for use in applying for something (e.g., a job). Completion of the process will usually create an account with a user name and password or other identifier which you agree to guard as confidential information—if you are careless with it, others may be able to access the information. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information at all times. You also agree that, to the extent allowed by us and our site, you will review, maintain, correct, and update such information in a timely manner to maintain its accuracy and completeness by using the means allowed for the relevant information or, when appropriate, by contacting us. If you provide (or Wendy’s has reasonable grounds to believe that you provided) any information that is inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, we may suspend or terminate your access, application, or participation in a program, in addition to exercising all rights and remedies allowed by law.
You agree that all uses of the identifier established for you during a registration or similar process will be attributed to and legally bind you and may be relied upon by us and our agents, affiliates, and other third parties with whom we work in order to provide the Site, Content, programs, profiles or other services as being a use made by you, even if someone else used your identifier.
