The following circumstances are not eligible for credit and are specifically excluded from our Uptime Guarantee: Scheduled maintenance, DDoS or similar attack, hardware failure, third-party software failure, customer fault/error, issues with customer ISP, firewall blocks/bans, or any other circumstance beyond our reasonable control.
