  5. any failure of the listing to meet or generate any target response levels or page impressions;
  6. any use of the details provided within the listing by users of our website.

  1. give you a credit for any cost of the listing containing the error for the period during which the erroneous listing was published but in any event no longer than 5 days; or
  2. extend the display period by the number of days that the listing was displayed incorrectly but in any event no longer than 5 days.   

Our total liability under these terms and conditions shall not exceed the fees paid by you in respect of the listing, or or where permitted the fees paid by you to us in respect of users referred to you by us.

We retain all intellectual property rights in our site and in any trade mark owned by us and nothing in these terms and conditions shall be taken to grant any rights to you in respect of such intellectual property rights.

Title to and ownership of all intellectual property rights embodied by or otherwise incorporated into the listing shall remain with you and except as specified in your licence to us (given in the section above) nothing shall be construed to grant to us any right, title or interest in or to such intellectual property rights.
