9 Warranty and Liability (limitations and exclusions)
9.1 CAP HPI warrants that it shall use reasonable care at all times in generating, compiling, providing and publishing the CAP HPI Products. Except as otherwise expressly agreed to, provided for, or stated in these Terms and Conditions, all other warranties, terms, conditions and obligations, express or implied or otherwise, are hereby excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. In particular, but without limitation of the foregoing, all CAP HPI Products are provided on an “as-is” basis without any warranty as to accuracy, suitability, fitness for a particular purpose or otherwise. Further, without limitation of the foregoing, except as otherwise expressly agreed to, provided for, or stated in these Terms and Conditions, We exclude any representation, condition or warranty, express or implied or otherwise, that the operation of the CAP HPI Services will be uninterrupted, or will be suitable for Your purposes.
Basis of exclusion of liability
9.2 You accept that estimates of vehicle values, running costs and other data and information contained within the CAP HPI Products are calculated by reference to third party data and/or market intelligence information which may be inaccurate, may alter or may be affected by circumstances that were not apparent at the time of preparation of the data and that which We do not have full control over. In addition, used vehicle valuations are a guide price only, and many other variables outside of Our control determine the actual sale price. Furthermore, the CAP HPI Data We supply to You when providing the CAP HPI Products includes a large amount of information which has been supplied to Us voluntarily by third parties over whom We have no control, such as the police, the DVLA, insurance and finance companies and those involved in the motor industry; the volume and the nature of the data on Our database makes it impractical for Us to verify it and, if We were to attempt to do so, We would only be able to offer Our services at a significantly increased cost; We provide the CAP HPI Products at a price that does not reflect any benefit You may obtain from them, including any profit that You may make or the amount of any credit that You may give. Accordingly, You accept and agree that the provisions of this Condition 9 represent a fair and reasonable apportionment of risk having regard to the CAP HPI Products and the Fee, and We accordingly consider it reasonable (and You agree) for Us to limit and exclude Our liability on the basis set out in this Condition.
9.3 You represent and warrant to Us the following:
9.3.1 that any information You provide to Us in the course of the performance of this Contract and/or in the course of the provision of the CAP HPI Products is accurate and complete;
9.3.2 that You have taken all reasonable precautions and exercised all due diligence and acted with professional diligence (such term as construed in accordance with The Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008) when making the relevant Vehicle purchase, sale, or transactions.
Exclusion of Liability in General
9.4 Subject to Condition 9.7, CAP HPI shall not in any circumstances be liable to You for:
(a) loss or damage arising as a result of any error, omission or inaccuracy in any part of the CAP HPI Products where such error, omission or inaccuracy arises as a result of use of third party content or market intelligence or a reasonable interpretation of such third party content or market intelligence;
(b) loss or damage arising from Your failure to use the CAP HPI Products strictly in accordance with the terms of the Contract;
(c) loss of profits, loss or corruption of data or information and/or loss of contracts;
(d) any kind of special, indirect, consequential or pure economic loss whether arising from negligence, breach of contract or howsoever caused and whether or not You notified CAP HPI of the possibility of the same;
(e) any loss of business, capital, profit, reputation or goodwill whether caused by us, Our servants or agents arising out of or in connection with the Contract or its subject matter.
(f) any loss or damage arising from Your failure to ensure software compatibility with Your hardware and/or other software or Your failure to carry out appropriate virus checks;
(g) third party claims of any kind; or
(h) any data inaccurately or incompletely presented via a third party system,
Limitation of Liability in General
9.5 Subject to Condition 9.7, if CAP HPI is held to be liable to You for any reason, Our entire liability in respect of any cause of action arising out of or in connection with the Contract or its subject matter (whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or for breach of statutory duty or in any other way) shall be limited to the Maximum Contract Liability Limit.
9.6 Unless otherwise agreed to between CAP HPI and You in writing, We shall not be liable for any claims or series of claims (“Claim”) arising under or in connection with the Contract or in relation to its subject matter unless written notice of the Claim is given to Us either within 3 months from when You became aware of the circumstances giving rise to such a Claim or within 3 months of such time when You ought to have reasonably become aware of such circumstances and in any event within 1 (one) year following the date of the first provision of the CAP HPI Product giving rise to the Claim.
9.7 Nothing in this Condition 9 shall exclude or limit CAP HPI’s liability for death or personal injury resulting from CAP HPI's negligence or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
9.8 You agree that You are best placed to evaluate, and insure against, any loss You may suffer in connection with the CAP HPI Products provided under this Contract.
9.9 The parties agree that each and every provision of this Condition 9 are severable for the purposes of Condition 14.7, and that each and every provision of this Condition 9 shall be construed as a separate limitation and/or exclusion that shall apply and survive even if for any reason any one or other of the said provisions is held inapplicable, unenforceable, or unreasonable in any circumstances.
9.10 The exclusions and limitations of liability contained in these Conditions shall apply for the benefit of CAP HPI and any person or business supplying any part of the CAP HPI Data to Us whether or not mentioned in the Contract, these Terms and Conditions, or in any marketing or descriptive documentation relating to the CAP HPI Products.
10.1 In relation to its obligations under the Contract, each party warrants that it shall comply with the Bribery Act 2010 and its own anti-bribery and anti-corruption policies. On request, each party shall promptly supply to the other party a copy of its anti-bribery and anti-corruption policies.
