Liability, Disclaimers and Non-reliance
Whilst we use reasonable care to ensure data contained within our vehicle check service is accurate, correct and up to date, FCC cannot guarantee this to be the case. This is because the data provided to us is sourced from third parties such as the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency, the Police, the Motor Insurers’ Bureau and their respective data suppliers. We are therefore not liable for any inaccuracies, omissions or errors in any information provided via the Site.
Further to the above, we also have to expect a reasonably necessary delay between data being provided to the third party supplier, their inputting the data onto their data system and this being sent to us and loaded into our systems before being made available to you via the Site for checking. Therefore, we can only make available to you the information that is available to us at the time you request a vehicle check, taking into account the reasonably necessary delay as mentioned. The information we provide is a ‘snapshot’ of the data we have available to give to you at that particular time.
We recommend that you do not solely rely on us for information prior to making any decisions, whether to purchase a vehicle or otherwise. We also recommend that you make independent arrangements to assess the performance, condition, safety and legality of any vehicle you are looking to purchase.
The information we provide is not intended to be relied on by you in making (or refraining from making) any specific decision or to replace independent professional advice.
Any and all information provided by us in connection with the Site is for general information purposes only. You are responsible for any opinions, recommendations, forecasts or other conclusions made or actions taken by you or anyone else on the basis of information provided on the Site or App. Nothing provided by us in connection with the Site is, or shall be deemed to constitute, financial, legal, regulatory, tax, professional or other advice.
FCC does not guarantee that any part of the service online will be uninterrupted and accepts no liability for any failure, delay, interruption or breakdown in network connections and/or point-to-point connectivity across the Internet and other networks which may affect their provision and is outside FCC’s immediate control.
If you are a consumer, FCC only makes the Site and App available for you in your personal capacity and for personal use. You agree not to use the Site for any commercial, business or re-sale purposes, and FCC shall not be liable to you for any loss of profit or revenue, loss of business, loss of goodwill, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
If you are a business, FCC shall not be liable to you, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, for any (whether direct or indirect):
loss of profit, revenue, sales, business or business opportunity;
loss of, or damage to, reputation or goodwill;
inability to use the Site or App;
reduction in asset value; or
loss or corruption of data;
in connection with your use of the Site or App or for any other indirect or consequential loss.
Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
Prices stated on this site include VAT unless otherwise noted.
The data guarantee only covers the web version of the report and does not include the PDF format.
Salvage History Check
