When using Services on this Site that are offered by IPO2U, you shall be
subject to any posted guidelines, rules or licenses applicable to such Services and to the Terms of Use. Such guidelines, rules or licenses may contain terms and conditions in addition to those in the Terms of Use.

In addition to the Materials and Services offered by IPO2U, this Site also
makes available materials, information and services provided by third parties (collectively, the "Third Party Services"). The Third Party Services are governed by separate license agreements that accompany such services. IPO2U offers no guarantees and assumes no responsibility or liability of any type with respect to the Third Party Services, including any liability resulting from incompatibility between the Third Party Services and the Materials and Services offered by IPO2U. You agree that you will not hold IPO2U responsible or liable with respect to the Third Party Services or seek to do so.

The functions and performances of the services depend on the cooperation
and participation of the user community. As an example, the availability of
IPO2U Operators (product sold separately by IPO2U). IPO2U Operators are designed to support the transmission of phone calls to local phone numbers. Depending upon the number of IPO2U Operators, IPO2U will support a limited number of phone numbers such as certain 800 numbers and numbers in a set of specific area code regions as a way of demonstrating the service capability. You should understand that the ultimate performance and capacity of the services may depend on the contribution of the user community. For example, as more businesses offer their IPO2U Operators for public use to assist in connecting to their business phone numbers and/or private numbers, the user community will enjoy more services.
