Jigowatt Limited reserves the right to amend limit or suspend or terminate the support services provided at any time without prior notice.

It is not a retail website design service for the general public. Each support services agreement at the ‘support club’ level is designed to be used by a single named professional accessing the service from the registered subscriber email. Each support services agreement at the ‘single site’ level is designed to be used by the subscriber from the registered subscriber email for the purposes on the nominated URL site address registered at the time of subscription. It is not transferable or sub-licensable to any third party, nor is it intended as a replacement for time-critical helpdesk or on-site support where a loss of functionality could result in a loss of business or profits.
