1. Access Policy

DotBlock cannot be held liable for any reason in the event that a Customer is unable to access their account or initiate a password reset due to the email address on file being inaccessible or disabled.

In the event that a person contacts DotBlock claiming to be entitled to access to the account but is unable to access (whether due to lost or forgotten information, data loss on a personal device, email address has been disabled, etc.), DotBlock may provide access to the account should all the conditions of at least one of the following cases is met:
