Content and Services and Limitation of Liability
FleetMon provides Services and value-added Content related to shipping and the maritime

sources and apply advanced extraction logics, automated and manual filtering and editing to produce the
Content. We operate to the best of our ability, however a lot of Content is uploaded and transmitted by the
community and the vessels directly and is therefore beyond the control of FleetMon. The data transmitted to
FleetMon cannot always be checked for correctness. In particular, we accept no responsibility for the
accuracy of the signals and the information derived from them.
FleetMon cannot make any representation about the continued availability, accuracy,
reliability, completeness, correctness or quality of our Content or Services. Nor can we make any

within the boundaries of what is usual in this line of business, in order to sustain the general provision
of services, especially for repairs, updates or in emergency situations or to meet acts of sovereign power.
