We have no liability for any errors or omissions on your part.

6.2 We accept responsibility for the accuracy of our own measurements, if we take any.

6.3 Every image we produce will appear differently on other screens and when printed.

6.4 You must ensure that we have full information about any issue which might affect the design. We will take reasonable care to make sure that we have dealt with all visible issues, but you must advise us of any issues which are not visible.

6.6.2 if, at any time, we form the opinion that we are unable to assist you.

7. THIRD PARTY INSTALLERS

7.1 If we are not able to undertake installation of a Product ourselves, we may suggest a third party carries out the installation. If that is the case:

7.1.2 whilst we may take payment of a deposit on behalf of the installer, you must make arrangements to pay the installer, direct, all other sums due;

7.1.3 we have no responsibility for any breach by such installer of its contract with you.

8.2 We will not retain any information relating to your bank or credit cards except the information that you give to us so that we can credit your bank account.

8.4 Unless we have agreed to offer you credit, we require payment in full, before we supply/deliver any Product.

We may offer voucher, discount and coupon codes from time to time; they will be effective only on the terms on which they are offered.

10. EVENTS OUTSIDE OF OUR CONTROL (FORCE MAJEURE)

10.1 We will not be liable for any failure or delay in performing our obligations under these Terms if that failure or delay arises because of any cause beyond our reasonable control.

10.2 Such causes include, but are not limited to: power failure, internet service provider failure, strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, riots and other civil unrest, fire, explosion, flood, storms, earthquakes, subsidence, acts of terrorism (threatened or actual), acts of war (declared, undeclared, threatened, actual or preparations for war), epidemic or other natural disaster, or any other event that is beyond our reasonable control.

10.3 If this happens:

We will tell you as soon as we reasonably can;

We will do all that we reasonably can to minimise the delay;

If we cannot minimise the delay, we will cancel your order for the Product and refund you the money you have paid us, using the same method by which you paid us

11. TRANSFERRING RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS

11.2 You may not transfer (assign) your rights and obligations under these Terms.

12. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

12.1 We guarantee our workmanship against all defects which arise due to errors or faults on our part, for a period of two years from the date we complete the work.
