Client agrees that Cherished.net cannot guarantee correct functionality with all browser software across different operating systems.

Cherished.net cannot accept responsibility for web pages which do not display acceptably in new versions of browsers released after the website have been designed and handed over to the Client.

Cherished.net is not responsible for any loss of data incurred due to the removal of the service. Removal of such material does not relieve the Client of the obligation to pay any outstanding charges assessed to the Client's account. Cheques returned for insufficient funds will be assessed a return charge of £25 and the Client's account will immediately be considered to be in default until full payment is received. Clients with accounts in default agree to pay Cherished.net reasonable expenses, including legal fees and costs for collection by third-party agencies, incurred by Cherished.net in enforcing these Terms and Conditions.
