7. QUALITY OF THE WEBSITE
We do not promise that the Website will be error-free or uninterrupted. The Website and its content are delivered on an ‘as-is’ and ‘as-available’ basis. We cannot ensure that files you download from the Site will be free of viruses or contamination or destructive features. Receipt of emails, or other Internet based communications such as via Facebook or Twitter from us cannot be guaranteed. The delivery of video messages is dependent upon third party providers and therefore outside of our control.

1. if the breach relates to goods, replacing, repairing or supplying goods equivalent to, those goods or paying the cost of replacing or repairing them or acquiring equivalent goods; or
