Save in relation to fraud, fraudulent misconduct, wilful conduct or grossly negligent conduct, Compuwave shall not be liable for a delay or for any other loss, damage or other cost of whatsoever nature suffered or incurred by the Customer where such estimate or indication is incorrect.

4.8.2    Unless expressly agreed otherwise, the Fees agreed for the Services do not include travel, accommodation and subsistence expenses, nor the cost of time spent travelling incurred in the provision of the Services for which Compuwave shall charge the Customer at its or at the Third Party provider’s (as applicable) then current rates, which Compuwave shall confirm to the Customer on request.

4.8.3    Compuwave will normally carry out the Services during Business Hours but may, on reasonable notice, require the Customer to provide access to the Customer’s premises or procure access to the End User’s premises at other times.

In the event that the Customer has not confirmed its acceptance of the Services, nor raised any concerns about them, within 7 days of Compuwave notifying the Customer that the rendering of the Services is complete, customer acceptance of the Services, including acceptance that they have been completely rendered, will be deemed to have occurred.

4.8.6    Should the Customer become dissatisfied with the performance of any personnel assigned by Compuwave or by any Third Party providing Services on behalf of Compuwave to perform the Services, the Customer shall notify Compuwave in writing with details of the unsatisfactory performance and, provided that Compuwave is satisfied that the Customer’s dissatisfaction is reasonable, Compuwave shall re-assign personnel as soon as reasonably practicable.

b)    Such inspection either identified or confirmed the defect-causing loss or could not have been expected to identify or confirm the defect-causing loss due to the latent and uncheckable nature of such defect.

4.8.8    Compuwave will only be responsible for providing support and/or maintenance Services in respect of Products supplied to the Customer where it has expressly agreed to do so in writing in the Contract. Unless otherwise set out in the Contract, this will generally comprise reasonable assistance in the resolution of queries via a telephone call originated by the Customer’s or the End User’s personnel. If Compuwave is unable to resolve the query during a telephone call, the Customer may be required to contact the Manufacturer of the Product directly.

4.8.9    The Customer may from time to time wish to vary the scope of a Service.  Compuwave will use reasonable commercial endeavours to accommodate any such variation request. Any changes in the Fees and/or timescales as a result of such variation shall be negotiated between the Customer and Compuwave, and where such negotiation has not concluded at the time the Customer confirms the variation is required, the Customer accepts any increase in work required pursuant to the variation shall be provided on a time and materials basis at Compuwave’s or its Third Party provider’s (as applicable) then current rates for the relevant Services, which Compuwave shall confirm to the Customer on request.

4.8.10    Although Services are undertaken with reasonable skill and care, and save as required by law, Compuwave cannot, save in relation to fraud, fraudulent misconduct, wilful conduct or grossly negligent conduct, guarantee the accuracy of any advice, design or report.

5.8    Compuwave shall be entitled to assume that any person signing a delivery note or sending a delivery receipt by email in respect of the Products on behalf of the Customer or the Customer's customer (if Compuwave has agreed to deliver direct) appearing or claiming to have authority to accept delivery on behalf of the Customer or the End User (as the case may be) shall in fact have the authority.

No variation of any Contract shall be effective unless it is in writing and signed by the Parties (or their authorised representatives).

Compuwave will supply a hard copy of these Conditions to the Customer on request. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the version of the Conditions which is current at the time of the commencement of a Contract shall apply to that Contract and the Customer by placing an Order without objecting in writing to any modification of the Conditions from the version of the Conditions that applied to any previous Contract shall be deemed to have accepted the modified Conditions. 

16.6    Waiver

No failure or delay by a Party to exercise any right or remedy provided under any Contract or by law shall constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial exercise of such right or remedy shall prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.

It is the intention of the Parties that each term of these Conditions is separate and that if any provision or part-provision of any Contract is or becomes invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that provision or part-provision becoming invalid, illegal or unenforceable should not be interpreted as if it would have affected the Parties’ willingness to enter into the Contract on the remaining terms. Accordingly, the invalidity, illegality or unenforceability of any clause or part of a clause shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the rest of the Contract. If any provision of any Contract is deemed deleted under this clause 16.6 the Parties shall negotiate in good faith to agree a replacement provision that, to the greatest extent possible, achieves the intended commercial result of the original provision.

16.8    Notices

16.8.1    Any notice or other communication given to a Party under or in connection with any Contract shall be in writing and shall be:
