Whilst 23snaps takes all reasonable steps available to it to provide you with a good level of service, you acknowledge and agree that 23snaps does not warrant that the App shall be uninterrupted or fault-free at all times. 23snaps therefore shall not be liable in any way for any losses you may suffer as a result of delays or failures of the Services and App as a result of 23snaps’ service providers.
