4.2 mod.io uses all reasonable commercial endeavours to keep the Service operating at all times. Nonetheless, the Service may experience outages from time to time. Such outage may be caused by third parties, hardware failure, or may be a consequence of mod.io maintenance activity, where we are looking to improve the quality of the Service. In circumstances where we know in advance that an outage is likely, we will provide notice. Whatever the reason behind the outage, we will use all reasonably commercial endeavours to ensure that your data is safe. However, we cannot guarantee this.
