- Update to section 2.3 - R/L/O - Obligations
Add one obligation, that is written elsewhere but requires to be added under section 2.3 - Obligations * to keep your primary email address in good working order This topic has been discovered in ATE series and the ATE presentations as an audit requirement, that CAcert's internal Arbitration and Support can contact the member The 3 main, essential topics of R/L/O in Assurance to disclose the R/L/O's to new members (-> Audit requirement): 1. Risk - You may find yourself subject to Arbitration (DRP => COD7). 2. Liability - Your liability is limited to a total maximum of 1000 Euros 3. Obligation - to keep your primary email address in good working order In current CCA revision a similar phrase is under sectio 2.5 * to keep your email account in good working order but having this topic under security is another PoV and doesn't reflect current practice in assurances to disclose the R/L/O's

- Update to section 3.3 - Termination
One issue has arisen as a result of arbitrations a20100212.2 and a20110310.1 where the death of a member occurs and as arbitrator in the latter case, I've place an action on Policy Group to update the CCA and related documents to cater for the death of a community member. Clarification is needed as to where the R/L/O goes in this the event of the death of a member - there probably needs to be an arbitration to close the account but there is an "interim period" where it is not clear where the R/L/O sits. Obviously we can process the termination once we are notified, but this is likely to be the exception rather than the rule - I am sure that CAcert is not normally going to be a priority to be notified - but there is the issue of what is the situation until then. There is a second issue in that we might well lose the "paper trail" if the deceased person is an assurer as well if the deceased's affairs are wound up prior to our notification.
