LIMITATIONS UPON LIABILITY
- Advice given by agents or servants of this company during telephone/Internet orders 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.

Manufacturers may also limit guarantees when components are installed for competition use.

In addition, the company shall accept no liability for death or personal injury unless caused directly by the Companies own negligence.

A Consumer Buyer shall be contacted by the Company and consent for any price increase obtained. Where no such consent is obtained, the Consumer Buyers agreement to purchase shall be treated as cancelled.
