16. Price payable for the Report

In instances where the Report has already been purchased, Ridler & Co will not be able to offer a discount retrospectively.
16.4 The price includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being.

20.2 We are not liable for business losses. We only supply the products for your domestic and private use. If you use the Report for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

23.3 Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This Contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its Terms.

23.5 Even if we delay in enforcing this Contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these Terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this Contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
23.6 If you are a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to items that are faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office. Nothing in these Terms will affect your legal rights as a consumer.
