UPDATED : Terms and Conditions

Groundsure are making a slight amendment to their Terms and Conditions

This “update” is a single change to the following paragraph (5.5) :

5.5 The Client shall promptly provide to Groundsure full details of any claim or complaint received by the Client concerning a Product (a “Claim”). The Client shall not incur any third party costs in relation to a Claim nor make any admission in respect of a Claim on behalf of Groundsure without the prior written consent of Groundsure.  At the request of Groundsure, the Client shall give to Groundsure or its nominee the exclusive control of such Claim.  The Client will (i) consider and consult with Groundsure in respect of any Claim; (ii)  take reasonable account of Groundsure’s representations in respect of any Claim; (iii)  so far as practicable, not make any settlement in respect of a Claim on terms which would have an unreasonable adverse impact on Groundsure’s reputation; (iv) not make any admission in respect of a Claim on behalf of Groundsure without the prior written consent of Groundsure.  For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this Condition 5.5 applies to any content, services or report that is not provided by Groundsure to the Client.
