6. Limitation of Liability (The buyers attention is specifically drawn to this clause)

6.1 Special Provisions for Limitation of Company’s Liability

6.1.1 Where Services are being provided, it is entirely the responsibility of the Customer to undertake a detailed feasibility study, survey and risk assessment (“Investigation and Assessment”) in relation to each location to which the Company supplies Services (“Location”) and all structures at the Location relevant to the Services. The Company will rely upon the Investigation and Assessment in its manufacturing and installing the Goods including the level of resilience of the structure of the Goods. In the event that the Goods suffer any damage due to defects or omissions in the Customer’s Investigation and Assessment, the Customer shall be wholly liable to indemnify the Company for the whole of the resulting cost of repair or replacement of the Goods and the re-delivery of any Services.

6.1.2 Bearing in mind the matters in clause 6.1.1 above and the Customer’s full responsibility for the Investigation and Assessment, the Company will not accept any liability whatever for any loss or damage of any kind including delays in provision of the Goods, failure of or interruption in the supply of the Goods or damage to the Location or any structure of the Customer thereon that may result from the provision of the Services and/or removal of the Goods, whether for overnight storage or for maintenance or other reason.

6.1.3 The Goods provided to each Location and the related equipment belonging to the Company (“the Company’s Equipment”) may be stored at each Location for the duration of the supply and maintenance in question required by the Customer. In such circumstances, there is likely to be a substantial security risk as to damage or theft/removal of the Company’s Equipment. If the Customer so requests, the Company will provide such security arrangements and insurance cover as are practicable in the circumstances, but this shall be at the cost of the Customer. The Customer is required in any event to put and maintain in place its own insurance against fire, flood, theft, damage and other insured risks and to note on its insurance policy, for the duration of the Company’s provision of the Goods, the presence on site of the Company’s Equipment. If so requested by the Company, the Customer shall provide a copy of the policy in question as referred to in this clause 6.1.3

6.2 Further Provisions as to Limitation of the Company’s Liability

6.2.1 Without prejudice to the foregoing the Company will in no circumstances be liable for any loss or damage suffered by the Customer arising out of any defects in the walls, timbers or other structures to which any Goods may have been affixed unless the Company has been asked by the Customer to advise and as advised in arrears on the suitability of such walls timbers or other structure. Such consultation, if requested will be at an additional charge.

6.2.2 Nothing in these Conditions shall restrict the liability of the Company arising out of any defect in the Goods and/or the Services due to the negligence of the Company that causes death or personal injury.

6.3 The Company’s liability in respect of the Goods shall in any event cease if:

6.3.1 The Customer shall not have paid in full any invoices from the Company on the due date.

6.3.2 The Company’s representatives are denied full and free right of access to the Goods and/or the site where the Services have been effected.

6.3.3 In the event of any claim being made against the Customer by reason of any matter referred to and in respect of which the Company is liable under these Conditions the Customer shall notify the Company in writing within thirty days of receipt of the notice of such claim. In these circumstances the Company may on its election conduct all negotiations for the settlement of the said claim and any litigation that may arise there from. The Customer shall not unless and until the Company shall have failed to take over the conduct of such negotiations or litigation make any admission that might be prejudicial thereto.

6.3.4 The Company shall not be responsible for the infringement of any intellectual property right of any third party in the execution of the Customer’s instructions and it is the Customer’s sole responsibility to obtain any necessary licenses or permissions and the Customer shall indemnify the Company in full against all claims, actions, proceedings, costs and losses arising out of such an infringement.

6.3.5 Orders for Services which include the installation of Goods are undertaken on the understanding that the Customer has complied with the requirements of the local planning and other interested official departments and the responsibility for obtaining any planning permission and permits is entirely that of the Customer. All charges levied by authorities before, during and/or after installation are to be borne by the Customer.

6.3.6 Where the Goods are to be erected in the ground, the responsibility for ensuring that no services such as water, gas, electricity, telephones or pipelines are likely to be interfered with, damaged or obstructed is the responsibility of the Customer as is any interference damage or obstruction caused thereto by the Company’s staff or sub-contractors in the event of the position of such services not being revealed (or being incorrectly revealed) to the Company. Furthermore, where the Goods are to be erected on a structure, it is the Customer’s responsibility to ensure that the structure is of adequate strength and in good condition to bear the additional loads imposed thereon by the installation of the sign and fittings.

6.3.7 The Company’s pantone colour matching system is an interpretation of a printed ink colour chart and may in some instances not be as bright or as clean as when reproducing the colour on a different substrate using alternative materials and applications. It may also vary by a number of shades, due to using industrial materials, as opposed to using screen printing inks for which the pantone colour system was intended. If the Company is to supply a match to something already produced in a pantone match, the Company will require a sample of the item on the same substrate that the Company is being asked to match to. Otherwise, the Company can only supply its interpretation and best match to the printed colour chart version. The Company can at additional cost produce a sample for approval prior to manufacture.

6.4 Overall Limitations of the Company’s Liability

6.4.1 Without prejudice to the provisions in this clause 6, the following clauses shall apply to limit the Company’s liability absolutely in any event. The restrictions on liability in this clause 6 apply to every liability arising under or in connection with the Contract including liability in contract, tort (including negligence), misrepresentation, restitution or otherwise.

Professional Indemnity Insurance

Indemnity Limit £10,000,000 – Each and every claim or loss, including all costs

Public/Products Liability Insurance
