1. When any number of days is prescribed in these Terms and Conditions, same shall be reckoned exclusively of the first and inclusively of the last day unless the last day falls on a day which is not a business day, in which case the last day shall be the next succeeding business day.
    2. No provision of these Terms and Conditions constitutes a stipulation for the benefit of any person who is not a party to an agreement entered into with the Provider.

      3. the singular includes the plural and vice versa.
    5. The expiration or termination of an agreement entered into between the User and the Provider shall not affect such of the provisions of these Terms and Conditions as expressly provide that they will operate after any such expiration or termination or which of necessity must continue to have effect after such expiration or termination, notwithstanding that the clauses themselves do not expressly provide for this.
    6. The rule of construction that the Terms and Conditions shall be interpreted against the party responsible for the drafting or preparation of the Terms and Conditions, shall not apply.
