We will provide you with a hosting service that enables Your Listing to be accessed on the internet. However, no guarantee is and can be made that Your Listing is accessible on the internet at all times.

You acknowledge and agree that, you are responsible for Your Listing's content and, without limiting any other provision of these Terms, you agree to indemnify us for any damages, losses and expenses arising as a result of or in connection with that content as if that content was put on Your Listing by you.
