DISCLAIMER

The Content and Site is updated from time to time. However, we hereby exclude any warranties (whether expressed or implied), as to the quality, accuracy, efficacy, completeness, performance, fitness for a particular purpose of the Content, the Services, the Site or any of its contents, including (but not limited) to any non-fraudulent representations contained within the Site, the Content or the Services.

 

Your use of the Site will be at your own risk and we will not be liable for any direct or indirect damages (including, without limitation, damages for any consequential loss or loss of business opportunities or projects, or loss of profits) howsoever arising and whether in contract, tort or otherwise from the use of or inability to use the Site, or any of the Content and Services, or from any action or omission taken as a result of using the Site or any such Content or Services. Furthermore, we will not be liable for any typographical or other error or omission within the material contained on the Site. We exclude any liability in respect of the Site, the Content and the Services to the fullest extent in this regard.

 

This Site contains material in the form of information or representations submitted by third parties to the Service Provider (some of which is provided on a periodic basis with the result that some reports may not include recently filed or registered information) and we accept no responsibility for the content or accuracy of such material nor do we make any representations by virtue of the Content, the Site or the Services in respect of the guaranteed availability of any services.

 

This Site contains certain information regarding the current and previous status of vehicles contained in the VMS.ie database and will only show a vehicle’s status for the previous two years. If the status of a vehicle has changed or altered prior to the commencement of this period, then the report may not reveal the same in this regard.

 

We make no warranty that the Content, the Site or the Services are free from infection by viruses or anything else which has contaminating or destructive properties and we hereby exclude all liability howsoever arising in respect thereof.

The Irish Vehicle Check and UK vehicle Check services do not relate to, contain information on or purport to comment on:

1 the physical condition of any vehicle;

2 the roadworthiness or safety of any vehicle;

3 whether or not a vehicle has been “written off”, unless such vehicle was reported to the Department of Transport as a write off or written off by an insurance company and such information has been provided to the Service Provider by such insurance company;

4 whether a vehicle or any of its components have been altered or replaced, unless notification of same has been provided to an insurance company or other body which provides information to us; or

5 whether any vehicle is a “clone” bearing a false vehicle registration mark and vehicle identification number.

Accordingly, in addition to all other aspects, you must satisfy yourself in respect of the above mentioned aspects of any vehicle(s) you intend to or in fact purchase.

 

Irish Vehicle Check, UK Vehicle Check, Irish Finance Check, Irish Finance Check, Vehicle Valuation Check and Buying Advice services do not provide you with (and you shall not receive) any advice or recommendation from us in relation to a specific vehicle which you intend to or in fact purchase. Any part of the Services should be used by you as a tool to assist you in buying (or not buying) a particular vehicle. The final decision will always rest with you and the Service Provider does not make any warranties or representations in respect of any information, report or statement generated by the Site or the Services.

 

All liability is excluded to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law including any implied terms as to the content of this Site. Such content is provided “as is”, without warranties of any kind. We reserve the right to change any and all content of the Site at any time.
