LIMITATIONS UPON LIABILITY
10. Advice given by agents or servants of this Company is based entirely upon information given by the Purchaser with no inspection undertaken. As such, all advice given is indicative only and all such advice should be checked by the Purchaser prior to order. Where advice is given after visual inspection by agents or servants of this Company, such advice shall amount to an opinion only. Additionally, goods supplied are supplied only to correspond to the purpose for which goods of that kind are commonly supplied and not alternative uses to which they may be put. No liability for failure can be accepted by this Company for such alternative use, amendments or modification.
11. For trade Buyers, the Company is hereby excluded from any liability, howsoever arising, in respect of any express or implied condition, warranty or term, statement, representation whether statutory or otherwise, relating to the goods supplied. The Trade Buyer accepts that he is best placed to insure against losses which arise by virtue of any breach of this agreement and warrants that he carries adequate insurance in this respect.

Where goods ordered by the Purchaser are not compatible by reason of modification, adaptations or alteration, the Company may accept such goods back into stock entirely at its discretion, and shall either issue a refund or credit to the purchaser, except where goods are specifically ordered for the purchaser where no such refund or credit will operate.
13.Where goods purchased by the Buyer are alleged to be defective, the Purchaser agrees to return such goods to the Seller for inspection and report (without the Seller replacing the said goods prior to such inspection).

Life expectancy and durability are greatly reduced and purchasers should note that any claim for failure/wear, shall not be entertained by the Company. It is acknowledged by the Buyer of such goods that the foregoing statement shall be a relevant and important issue in any claim brought against the Company and the Company shall, in turn, place importance upon this clause. In addition, parts connected to parts supplied by this Company may be placed under stress where specialist/competition parts are used, and purchasers should take advice from experts prior to purchase. Manufacturers may also limit guarantees when components are installed for competition use.
15. Where goods are defective, incorrectly supplied, delayed or otherwise in breach of the implied terms of the Buyer’s statutory rights, all losses which result from loss of competition points, awards, loss of entry fees or other similar losses are excluded and shall not be reclaimable from the Company. In addition, the Company shall accept no liability for death or personal injury unless caused directly by the Company’s own negligence.
16. No liability is accepted by the Company where purchasers attempt to modify or install components supplied where it is known or ought reasonably to be known to the Purchaser that the part supplied is incorrectly supplied or otherwise not in accordance with the order.
17. The Company accepts no liability in respect of failure to supply or other interruptions caused by matters beyond the reasonable control of the Company, including but without limitation, strikes, lockouts, civil disputes, acts of god, war or actions by third party.
18. Quotations are given on the assumption that no variation in the prices will be made by the manufacturer/sole importer and that government levies remain unaltered. In the event of such changes, the trade Buyer shall be liable for the full cost of any change without notice from the Company. A consumer Buyer shall be contacted by the Company and consent of any price increase obtained. Where no such consent is obtained, the consumer Buyer’s agreement to purchase shall be treated as cancelled. Buyer’s are herby informed that calling down of smaller quantities and material than ordered may increase the overall price per unit given reduced economies of scale in order. The resultant additional cost shall be borne by the Buyer.
