Limited Liability

By using this site, you agree that FCL and Kindred shall not be liable either in contract, tort, negligence, statutory duty or otherwise for any:

  1. loss of profits, goodwill, revenue or any type of consequential, indirect or special loss or damage whatsoever arising from or in any way connected with this Agreement
  2. direct damage or loss, including damage or loss which is reasonably foreseeable or occurs naturally in the course of things, resulting in any acts, omissions, failures or delays occurring to, on or in relation to those parts of the Internet not under kindred direct control, including, without limitation, loss or damage of business, loss of sales, non payment of monies due, loss of profits, business interruption, loss of reputation, loss of business information, or any other pecuniary loss, even where kindred has been advised of the possibility of such damage or loss.
  3. You agree that, except in relation to such liability as has been expressly excluded in clause 1.0, the maximum aggregate of liability of kindred in contract, tort, negligence, statutory duty or otherwise, even where kindred has been advised of the possibility of such damage or loss, for any damage or loss arising from or in any way connected with:
    1. any defect in a product
    2. any failure by kindred to process signals, data, information, orders or messages correctly or in a timely manner, or any misrouting or non delivery of signals, data information, messages or orders from you to other persons or from other persons to you, or any scrambling or distortion of data or information contained in them, and any liability not excluded by this Agreement shall, in respect of any one or more events or series of events, connected or unconnected, taking place within any twelve month period be limited in the case of defects falling within clause

  4. You agree and acknowledge that you are in a better position than kindred to foresee and evaluate any potential loss or damage that you may suffer in connection with the goods and services provided by kindred, and therefore that kindred cannot adequately insure in respect of such liability. You warrant to kindred that you will insure against, or bear yourself, any loss for which kindred has excluded liability
  5. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some limitations set out in clause 5 may not apply to you.
