This Contract is entered into with the mutual understanding that a specific search result ranking, Domain Rating, or similar metric is not in any way guaranteed by us to you.

You agree to indemnify us against all damages, costs, claims and expenses suffered by us where this is caused by you, or your agents or employees. We shall not be liable to you or any other person for any direct, indirect, or consequential damages, or for the loss of data, profit, or revenue arising out of or relating to this Contract, even if it has been advised of the possibility of such potential loss or damage.
