are based on STANDARD Internet technologies that have been designed to
work in the Year 2000 and beyond on a "Best Efforts" basis (rather than
"Contractual" basis). Although Join2day.com takes the Y2K issue seriously
and continues to evaluate its readiness, given the true nature of Year
2000 issues, contractual warranties specific to Year 2000 readiness are
NOT appropriate. It is a simple fact that a single technology provider
can NOT solve all issues related to the transition to the Year 2000. Accordingly,
the limited warranties for Join2day.com's services are set forth in the
Terms & Conditions page. Join2day.com will continue to keep its customers
informed. The information we disseminate about year 2000 readiness

services. Join2day.com provides this information to our customers to help
them in evaluating and correcting potential issues for using dates into
the next century.
