***Third-Party Services and Access in CM/ECF - CAUTION***
CM/ECF filers should be aware of the potential to inadvertently share restricted documents when using third-party services or software.  Sharing your PACER account credentials with a third-party service provider or designating that provider as a secondary recipient of a Notice of Electronic Filing or Notice of Docket Activity (NEF/NDA) will give it access to sealed or restricted case information and documents in violation of court order.  You are urged to use caution in your computer security practices to ensure that sealed or restricted documents to which you have access are not disclosed.
