UPC Terms of Use

Welcome to this website, a service of UPC Ireland and its subsidiaries (collectively, “UPC,” “we,” or “us”). Please read the Terms of Use before you use this website. By using this website, you agree to abide by the Terms of Use. We may change the Terms of Use from time to time. By continuing to use the website after we post any changes, you accept and agree to the Terms of Use, as modified.

 

The material that appears on this website is for general informational purposes only. While we try to ensure that any information we post to this website is both timely and accurate, errors may appear from time to time. This website may not be updated daily, and certain information may not be the most current information available. Though we may post follow-up information and reports, and may continue to provide access to the original information and reports, as in an archive of news stories, for example, we may not go back and change the original report to reflect new developments. If you're looking for the most recent information on a given subject be sure you're not looking at an out of date report. Before you act on information you've found on our website, you should independently confirm any facts that are important to your decision.

 

We will do our utmost to ensure that availability of the website will be uninterrupted and that transmissions will be error-free. However, due to the nature of the Internet, this cannot be guaranteed. Also, your access to the website may occasionally be suspended or restricted to allow for repairs, maintenance, or the introduction of new facilities or services. We will attempt to limit the frequency and duration of any such suspension or restriction.
