Some localities do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. To the extent permitted by law, we do not accept any liability for any damage or injury caused by the use or misuse of products purchased from us.
Our Warranty does not cover in transit damage; failure to comply with the original suppliers warranty; willful abuse or misuse.

If delay or failure to deliver is caused by force majeure or labour dispute we may suspend delivery, supply or completion and/or terminate the contract. Force Majeure means an act of God, war, lightning, fire, earthquake, storm, flood explosion, unavailability or delay in availability of equipment materials or transport, and any other cause whether of the kind specifically enumerated or otherwise which is not within our control. Whilst we shall use reasonable endeavours to comply with your particular delivery requirements and order specifications, you will not be entitled to cancel the whole or part of an order or to claim compensation by reason of our failure to comply with your delivery requirements or minor variations to the goods as a result of changes to the manufacturing processes or specifications.
