This login and password is assigned specifically to your station or branch, and by federal law, may not be used by another station or branch. It is understood by the user that this login is used to access government classified information, and this login must be kept secret.

RELATIONSHIP REQUESTS: It is understood by the user that a virtual private relationship between the agent and the forwarder is required to share data between agent and forwarder. This may be executed by Veroot in the background, or executed online with a formal "relationship" request. It requires both parties to have a valid Veroot login, and to have made electronic or personal contact with another to execute the request. Once a request is accepted by both parties, the relationship is established.

You will be billed for your first month immediately upon upgrading. 4. The Service is billed in advance on a monthly basis and is non-refundable.
