10. Our Responsibility for Loss or Damage Suffered By You

10.1. We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking our Agreement or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but, except as set out in clause 10.2 we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time our Agreement was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process. 


10.2. We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation. 


10.3. We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for domestic and private use. If you use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity. 

11. How May We Use Your Personal Information

11.1. We will only use your personal information to the extent permitted by data protection laws. 

12. Other Important Terms

12.1. We may charge interest. If you fail to make a payment due to us under our Agreement by the due date then, without limiting any of our other remedies under our Agreement, you shall pay interest on the overdue sum from the due date until the payment of the overdue sum, whether before or after judgment, which shall accrue each day at 3% a year above the Bank of England’s base rate from time to time, but at 3% a year for any period when that base rate is below 0%. 


12.2. We may transfer our Agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. 


12.3. You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. 


12.4. Nobody else has any rights under this Agreement. Our Agreement is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end our Agreement or make any changes to these terms. 


12.5. If a court finds part of our Agreement illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect. 


12.6. Even if we delay in enforcing this Agreement, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this Agreement, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date. 


12.7. Which laws apply to our Agreement and where you may bring legal proceedings. 
These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
