Notices from a User to LSQ should be communicated by an authorized representative in writing by hand-delivery, national overnight delivery service, or electronic transmission established by LSQ, however, any legal notice must also be made in writing.

Execution of Instructions
Login IDs and Passwords are under the control of the individual or individuals that you have authorized and designated. The LSQ online system has been designed so that it may be operated only upon entry of a valid user name and password combination.

You authorize LSQ to treat any instruction made on the LSQ online system with valid Login IDs and Passwords as if the instructions had been made in writing and signed by the appropriate authorized individual or individuals.
