We are, however, the ‘Merchant of Record’ for the purpose of your credit card transaction.
We are a market place. Whilst We select Our Associates and the Products offered with care We never have possession of the Products and will not normally examine, inspect or test the Products. So We do not guarantee that claims made by the Associates for those Products and/or services are correct.
Accordingly, We do not warrant that:
- the Associate from whom you buy the Product has title to or the right to sell them; or
- the claims which the Associates make on this Site are true; or
- any Product is of satisfactory quality or fit for the purpose for which you may be buying them; or
- any services are of satisfactory quality.
This does not, of course, affect your statutory rights.
You accept that this clause 5 satisfies the requirements of reasonableness.
