5. Liability

Please read this clause carefully, as it sets out the limits of our liability to you (and any person you are using this website on behalf of).

Although we make reasonable efforts to update it, this website is provided "as is" and, to the extent permitted by law, we make no representations, warranties or guarantees, whether express or implied (including but not limited to the implied warranties of satisfactory quality and fitness for a particular purpose), that (a) this website is accurate, complete or up-to-date; (b) this website will meet your particular requirements or needs; or (c) access to, or use of, the same will be uninterrupted or completely secure.

You acknowledge and agree that we will not be responsible for any injury, loss, damage, costs or expenses (whether direct or indirect) arising out of, or relating to the use or misuse of this website, except to the extent that such liability cannot be excluded by law (i.e. our liability for death or personal injury arising from our negligence, or our fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation or any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited under English law).

This means that we have no liability to you for:

  • any business loss (including, but not limited to, loss of profits, revenue, contracts, anticipated savings, data, goodwill or wasted expenditure)

  • any loss or damage arising from an inability to access and/or use this website in whole or in part

6. General

We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms of use to another organisation. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms of use to another person if we agree in writing.

These terms of use (together with the privacy policy and cookie policy referred to in these terms of use) set out the entire agreement between you and us in respect of this website.

These terms of use do not give rise to any rights for any third party to enforce any term of these terms of use.

Each of the clauses of these terms of use operates separately. If any part of these terms of use is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and exclusions and limits of liability, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of these terms of use shall continue in effect.

Even if we delay in enforcing these terms of use, we can still enforce them later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms of use, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking these terms of use, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.

These terms of use shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of England, and you agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England in respect of any disputes that may arise in relation to this website.
