Save and provided herein and subject to the Sale of Goods Act 1979 and the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977 both the Seller and the manufacturer shall be under no liability in respect of any defects in the Goods or defective works or for any loss damage or injury resulting from and including consequential loss.
