Limitations of Technology

Exceedpc agrees to inform Client when such situation exists. Client agrees to correct situation if applicable, and to hold Exceedpc harmless in any case.
Because there are risks associated with applying and failing to apply patches, Exceedpc constantly reviews and updates our best practices based on the relative threats to patch delivery timing. Every effort is made to balance the reduction of vulnerabilities with the slight destabilization risk associated with applying new patches to otherwise stable systems. Patch definitions and antivirus definitions are distributed by their respective software vendors, and as such, Exceedpc has no direct control over the effectiveness or lack thereof of the software being applied. Exceedpc shall not be held responsible for interruptions in service due to patches released by software vendors.
Force Majeure & Malicious Acts

Furthermore, damage and/or significant problems that result from anomalies and/or abnormal circumstances such as fire, flood, electrical surges, deliberate malicious acts, theft, acts of God and/or any other cause beyond the reasonable control of either party fall outside the terms of this agreement.
Neither party shall disclose any propriety or confidential information obtained from the other unless so directed by a court of law or government authority. Client agrees not to disclose rates, terms, or any information regarding this Agreement without the prior written consent of Exceedpc.

Exceedpc only monitors these backups. Exceedpc doesn’t provide warranties in the event of software failure or data breach of these backups.
