3 WEBSITE USE AND SERVICES AND PRODUCTS
Any Valuation we provide to you or any indicative offers we make are not offers capable of acceptance but will be deemed as invitations to treat. If we supply you with goods or services following an Order then full details of the products and services that we will actually supply to you will be contained in a written agreement, which can only be varied in writing. Any photographs, samples, drawings, specifications, product details in any format or any form of advertising material shown by us to provide some indication of the products and services and are not part of the terms of your Order unless specifically stated within the Order. Nothing on the Website is, or shall be deemed to constitute, financial, investment or other advice. Anything on the Website, including any links to any other websites or information from it or anything whatsoever will not form a recommendation, endorsement, guarantee or warranty and you agree that we have no liability in this regard. Any Order with us is not binding on either party until it has been agreed by execution of a written contract. When you click on links you may be forwarded to third party websites, including those of Associates. We have no control or responsibility regarding third parties, Associates or any other websites. You are aware that you will enter into a separate agreement which has nothing to do with us and you must make yourself aware of the terms of such agreements. You specifically confirm that we cannot be held liable in this regard.
