· any error (including but not limited to spelling and text errors) misprint, inaccuracy or omission in an Advertisement which does not detract from the essence of that Advertisement.

Where an Advertisement is hosted on a Website, We have no responsibility or liability with regards to the availability of the Website, and where we are unable to publish an Advertisement for reason beyond Our reasonable control (Force Majeure), We will have no liability for the non publication of the Advertisement.
