Any claim must be notified within 6 months of it arising. For the avoidance of any misunderstanding whatsoever, the customer must accept that neither the registration agents, their employees, agents or anyone else associated with them, shall be held liable to the customer for any loss of business, contracts, profits or failure to achieve anticipated savings or for any other indirect or consequential or economic loss whatsoever, irrespective whether such losses were caused because of mistakes, omissions, interruptions, loss of files and data, errors, defects, operation or transmission delays, failures in performance because of destruction, theft or any unauthorised access or for any other reason whatsoever.
