Can't access/edit mobile only content

I have just started looking after this site (warms.com.au) and it is a basic level, no CSS etc site.  Version 7.0 Bedford Template. However the footer on each page renders differently on desktop and mobile devices with outdated information on the mobile versions.  I can't seem to find a way to edit/remove the outdated information through the website editing interface. I would appreciate any assistance.

Thanks Justin,

While I recognize the email address as having once been relevant I can't find any mention of it on any page relating to either the account not the website content.  Is this a case of a vestige of a capability now having been removed so that I can no longer see or edit the information?  Just to be clear the actual email address is known however the name associated with the email address is not valid.

 Your response is much appreciated but doesn't seem to be the case in this instance. While the email address likely came from the business information there is addition out of date information attached, I can't find that information anywhere.

Just another thought - why is there an email link on the mobile site when there is not one on the desktop site. Perhaps this would have been a better way to pose the question

The mobile and desktop versions of this website are linking to the same email address. If the email address is incorrect then you can, as @justin.mabee explained above, amend this in the Business Information settings. This is a standard feature on sites built with Bedford family templates.

Although the email address is the same for both mobile and desktop, this template was designed at a time when mobile devices had very low resolutions. For this reason, Squarespace decided to style the email address differently on mobile devices using the word 'EMAIL' in place of the email address, to prevent it wrapping. Clicking the word will still open an email application to send to the same email address; it just looks different.

Of course, mobile device resolutions are now much better (4x!) so if you would like to display the full email address instead, you could add the following to the Custom CSS panel:

/* Show full email address in footer */
@media only screen and (max-width: 640px) {
  .site-email>span {
    display: block;
  }
  .site-email:before {
    display: none;
  }
}
