In addition, to receive a credit, you must request a credit by email IdBloc's support team within thirty (30) days following the end of the downtime. You must show that your use of the services was adversely affected in some way as a result of the downtime to be eligible for the credit. Notwithstanding anything in these Terms of Service to the contrary, the maximum total credit for the monthly billing period, including all guaranties, shall not exceed 100% of the fees for that billing period. Credits that would be available but for this limitation will not be carried forward to future billing periods.
