We are the owner or licensee of all intellectual property rights in the Site and the Site Software, and in all of the material and documents hosted or posted on the Site and in any and all databases related to the Site.

7. Our Responsibility to You
Our responsibility to you:
(a) Although we take reasonable effort to ensure that the information on our Site and documents are up-to-date and legally sufficient, the legal information on this Site is not legal advice and is not guaranteed to be correct, complete or up-to-date, and you are responsible for the use to which you put material and documents that you access on our Site. Because the law changes rapidly, is different from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and is also subject to varying interpretations by different courts and certain government and administrative bodies, we cannot guarantee that all the information on the Site is completely current.
(b) As far as legally possible, we exclude legal responsibility for any loss, injury, claim, liability, or damage to you related to your use of this Site or any site linked to this Site, whether from tort, contract, negligence or otherwise (examples of such loss being: loss of income, profit, business, data, contracts, goodwill, savings, pure economic loss, indirect or consequential loss, costs, damages and expenses). In short, your use of the Site is at your own risk.
(c) We also exclude, but only as far as legally possible, all terms and warranties or promises implied by law or by statutes.
(d) Although we try to make the site available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, (except for planned maintenance and required unscheduled maintenance) we do not warrant that your use of the Site and/or the Site Software will be uninterrupted or error-free; and we are not responsible for any delays, delivery failures, or any other loss or damage resulting from the transfer of data over communications networks and facilities, including the internet, and you acknowledge that the Site may be subject to limitations, delays and other problems inherent in the use of such communications facilities.
(e) We don’t exclude legal responsibility for death or personal injury owing to our negligence, or legal responsibility for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, or for anything else where exclusion is not allowed by the law.
(f) We will try to make sure that customer data is stored securely and backed-up. If we lose or damage it we will try to restore it. But if it is lost or damaged by a third party, we are not responsible to you unless they cause the loss or damage when working on it for us.
(g) We will not provide our services for longer than the period that you have purchased them for.
(h) You agree that any duty of care owed to you by us is a duty owed only to you. We do not owe a duty of care to any third party and assume no responsibility to any third party in respect of the performance of our duties to you. We are not liable for any failure to fulfil our obligations due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control.
(i) You agree that the limitations on liability contained in this paragraph 7 are reasonable. You also agree that any limitations on liability in this paragraph 7 apply to you and also to any person or company associated with you.
Subject to earlier termination as provided below, our agreement under these terms is for the duration specified in the plan you signed up for. Upon expiry, the plan may auto-renew (if applicable) or you may sign up for additional Services as made available on the Site at that time.
In addition to any other remedies it may have, either party may also terminate our agreement under these terms with immediate effect on giving notice to the other party, if the other party materially breaches any of these Terms.
If you are ending the contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
(a) we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to;
(b) we have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered, and you do not wish to proceed;
(c) there is a risk that supply of the services or products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
(d) we have suspended supply of the services or products for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 30 days; or
(e) you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.
Our services are only intended for businesses and so the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 do not apply to these terms and conditions. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of digital products after you have started to download or stream these or services after these have been provided.
All sections of these Terms which by their nature should survive termination will survive termination, including, without limitation, accrued rights to payment, confidentiality obligations, warranty disclaimers, and limitations of liability. The expiry or termination of this Agreement shall not affect the accrued rights, remedies, obligations or liabilities of the parties under it as existing at expiry or termination.

(b) We reserve the right to use external service providers as long as they are bound by appropriate obligations to maintain the confidentiality of the information.
