Our and your liability for use of this website
You may not always be able to access this Website. We are not responsible if the means of communication you use to access the Website or to send us information about yourself or to receive information from us does not work properly.
As we’ve explained above, the information on this Website may not always be quite up to date or complete. We advise you to check it carefully before you agree to a product or service, and we are not responsible for any losses you suffer if you fail to do so unless what we put on the Website was incorrect or misleading (and provided the correct information was not provided to you or made available before you proceeded with our product or service).
Whilst we take reasonable care to ensure the accuracy of information on third party websites which we may have linked through this Website, as we cannot control what they contain, we are not responsible for any losses or other damage you suffer as a result of using those other websites.
We are not liable for losses or costs caused by abnormal and unforeseeable circumstances outside our reasonable control, which would have been unavoidable despite all efforts to the contrary, for example delays or failures caused by industrial action, problems with another system or network, third party viruses or malware, mechanical breakdown, or data-processing failures.
Please remember that email is not a completely secure means of communication: it may be possible for others to intercept and read your messages. So, if you choose to send us information by email, it is at your own risk.
