YOUR ATTENTION IS PARTICULARY DRAWN TO THIS CLAUSE AND LIMITS OF OUR LIABILITY WITHIN IT
Nothing in this agreement shall limit or exclude our liability for;
Death or personal injury caused by our negligence
Fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation
simoninternational.co.in and the Third party Courier and/Logistics services offering the services available on Website to the customer shall perform the service in a professional manner with the appropriate level of skill and care. However, there are instances where damage to a consignment or loss of a consignment may occur at the same time as the courier you have chosen carries out the service. In such circumstances the liability we offer will be limited as set out in these terms and conditions. The reasoning behind such limitations of our liability is as follows
The value of a Consignment and the amount of potential loss to you that could arise if a Consignment is damaged or lost is not something which we can easily ascertain but is something which is better known to you. In many cases it cannot be known to us at all and can only be known to you.
The potential amount of loss that might be caused or alleged to be caused to you is likely to be disproportionate to the sum that we could reasonably be expected to charge you for providing the Service(s) under this Agreement.
Above we wish to limit our liability for any damage caused to you to Nill unless you have chosen a Carrier Risk.
It is not possible for us to obtain cover which would give unlimited compensation for our full potential liability to all of our customers and, even if it were, such cover would be much cheaper if taken out by you (rather than us taking out such cover and passing the cost on to you) and on that basis, it is more appropriate for you to take out such cover through third party Insurance Companies.
We investigate all claims received by us in a fair and speedy manner, but such investigations are more accurate and are easier to perform soon after the loss or damage is alleged to have incurred and on that basis, the timescales set out in this Agreement are necessary to ensure that such investigations can be performed fairly
We shall only be liable for damage or loss caused to you if it is caused by our negligence, breach of duty or other wrongful act or omission, and only subject to the limitations set out within this whole clause
We shall not be liable to you under any circumstances for any direct or indirect loss (including, but not limited to loss of profits, or loss of goodwill) or for any other special or indirect losses, costs, damages, or claims which do not arise naturally as a result of our negligence, breach of duty, or other wrongful act or omission.
We shall not be liable to you under any circumstances where there are any material discrepancies (meaning more than 5% difference) between the declared dimensions and weights and the actual dimensions and weights.
We shall not be liable for any items sent that are listed on our prohibited and/or restricted items list, these will be sent at the customers own risk.
If a number of parcels or individually wrapped goods are sent as one through our service they must be encased within one outer box. Failing to do this any package or individually wrapped item that comes apart in transit, resulting in one or more of them being lost, once the remaining parcel(s) are signed for by the recipient, you accept that you cannot make a claim for loss or partial loss of that consignment..
We shall not be able to accept liability for any parcels that are handed to the wrong courier by the sender or that are left unattended for the collection to occur. It is the responsibility of the customer and/or sender to ensure the parcel is given to the correct courier. Items left unattended will be sent at the customers/senders own risk.
Where a parcel is sent to a service that does not require a signature and there is a valid delivery scan no claim for loss can be processed on that order.
Should simoninternational.co.in be liable for any reason,
If the consignment is damaged or lost and claims will be accepted only if the carrier risk is selected at the time of ordering. This compensation cover is based on the Courier and/ Logistics Company you have selected and compensation may not be the full value declared in all cases.
