Qmania transmits and receives text messages and voice broadcasts via major telecommunications companies and mobile network operators, and thus Qmania’s influence over the timing of the transmission of your messages and broadcasts is within the technical constraints imposed upon Qmania.

Such times depend on various network and system-related factors among the various entities involved in the transportation of your messages and broadcasts across the public switched telephone network and/or Internet

You should know that communications carriers assign text messages and voice broadcasts with a default lifetime and any message or broadcast that cannot be delivered successfully within the lifetime assigned to it will be discarded by the communications carrier without any notice. Qmania is not liable for any loss incurred by the failure of a message or broadcast to be delivered, and you acknowledge that damages for financial or other loss resulting from delivery failure cannot be claimed from Qmania for any such non-deliveries. Furthermore, you agree that message and broadcast contents are deemed to have zero value.
