21/12/2016: Connect Communications transitioned to new ownership during 2016. The Registrar subsequently identified that due to administrative errors, certain clients had been declared incorrectly, and those clients have now been removed. The new owners are not in a position to confirm that client declarations made prior to the change of ownership, were not subject to the same issues, and therefore those earlier entries should be viewed in the light of that.
