2. If you use the counter in mail shots or as part of an email campaign, again the counter robot will be unable to access the counter and accounts will be deleted in such circumstances.
3. We offer no guarantees of uptime and availability due to the nature of the internet and DNS servers and ISP'S being out of our control, however; it is our intention to develop this counter to one of the most reliable on the internet and you should be aware that any connection failure will NOT be down to us and if it is will be rectified as fast as humanly possible.
