  2. VAT invoices for work commissioned and accepted shall be submitted by TREND 2000 prior to commencement of the Review.
  3. No Reviews will be started without receipt of payment unless agreed in writing by a Director of Trend 2000. If the Client fails to make payment as required in such agreement or if the client shall go into liquidation or has a Receiver or Administrator appointed then TREND 2000 shall have a right to cancel any contract and discontinue any work and all sums owing at that time shall become immediately payable as a debt to TREND 2000.

All conclusions, recommendations and forecasts in the Review and any subsequent report, letter or communication, both verbal and written, are made in good faith and on the basis of the information available to TREND 2000 at the time whether from the Client or information which is in the public domain and the validity thereof will depend, among other factors, on the effective co-operation of the Client, and the Client’s staff. Hence, no condition, warranty or representation, expressed or implied, is given as to the results or performance obtained or to be obtained from the services provided by TREND 2000 and the Client shall be responsible for the proper adaption of TREND 2000’s recommendations to the Client’s own circumstances.

  5. TREND 2000 shall not be liable for any consequential or indirect loss suffered by the Client whether this loss arises from a breech of duty in contract or tort or in any other way (including loss arising from TREND 2000’s negligence).
  6. In order to protect the interest of Clients, all TREND 2000 Staff are employed under a Service Contract which specifically forbids the unauthorised disclosure of confidential information.

Trend 2000 will also destroy any paper copies made and erase any files containing the proposal or material therefrom on completion of the Review.
