  • We offer access to our systems and services under the charges described at Account Types. We endeavour to announce any changes well in advance.
  • We make best efforts to maintain our systems so that they are available at all times other than pre-announced service periods, however we do not offer a formal uptime commitment.
  • We automatically register accounts on our low-volume mailing list so that we can contact you with important information. This is an essential part of our service and we do not offer the option to unsubscribe.
  • We provide extensive documentation on using our systems which should be your first port of call for any questions. We also provide an e-mail based help desk for direct support with issues not covered by the documentation. You can find more information at Account Support.
  • We make best efforts to answer help requests promptly, but we do not have formal response times. In fairness to supporting all users equally, we reserve the right to decline requests which would incur an unreasonable amount of effort on our part.
