The content and classification of the business entries in the online business directory is supplied to us by and cleared by the companies or individuals submitting business entries for inclusion in the online business directory (“Advertisers”).
9.2 The information and descriptions of the Advertisers’ products and services in the online business directory may not represent the complete descriptions of all the features and terms and conditions of the Advertisers’ business, their qualifications, accreditations, products and services. Therefore, you must contact the Advertisers directly for further information and satisfy yourself as to the exact type of goods or services offered or the qualifications held by the Advertisers in the online business directory.

The appearance of an Advertiser under any particular heading does not necessarily indicate that goods or services suggested by that heading are provided by that Advertiser nor that they are authorised, entitled or qualified to carry out any specified trade, business, occupation or profession.
9.4 Neither we nor any of our group companies are an agent of any of the Advertisers appearing in the online business directory and is unable to vouch for the advertising claims, professional qualifications, trade certifications, memberships of trade associations or content of websites whose addresses may be shown in any of the business entries contained in the online business directory.

The Advertisers shall be solely responsible for all order fulfilment, invoicing, receipt of payment, deliveries, cancellation, after-care services, defects, complaints and all associated liabilities. We are not the supplier or the seller of the products and services and we have no obligations, responsibility, control or liability for any loss or damage you may suffer or incur in connection with:
