While FMTC will make reasonable efforts to update the Links and the Service on a regular basis, FMTC reserves the right to remove Links from the Service at any time without prior notice and does not guaranty that any number of Links will be included in the Service or that updates will be made to the Service at any specific time. You acknowledge that outdated Links or other errors with your content may result in negative impressions of Marketers, you and FMTC. Therefore, you agree to regularly and within a reasonable period of time (but no later than 24 hours) keep all publicly-accessible Links current and up-to-date with the latest information from the Service. FMTC may suspend your use of the Service, or terminate this Agreement for breach, for a failure to update the Links as set forth herein.
