3. STANDARDS AND Sheldrakes Restaurant Ltd LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
3.1 The standards we operate under: Sheldrakes Restaurant Ltd always tries its best at what it does! To give some legal backing to this, we warrant that we will exercise reasonable care and skill in performing any obligation under this Agreement, and we will not contravene the requirements of professional diligence in what we do.
3.2 If there is a conflict: If there’s a conflict between what we say in different parts of this Agreement, this Clause 3 takes precedence over all other sections and provisions of this Agreement and sets out our entire Liability, and your sole and exclusive remedies, in respect of the performance, non-performance, purported performance or delay in performance of this Agreement or the Service or Site (or any part of them); or otherwise in relation to this Agreement or the entering into or performance of this Agreement.
3.3 What we are always responsible for: Nothing in this Agreement shall exclude or limit our Liability for any Liability which cannot be excluded or limited by applicable law (such as for death or personal injury caused by our negligence, for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation or any other non-excludable statutory rights).
3.4 What you can and cannot take legal action against us for: If we mess up in any way, ultimately you can take action against us for a breach of contract (i.e. for breach of this Agreement) but for nothing else (such as suing for a tort).
3.5 Categories of loss that we are not responsible for: To the extent permitted by law (and subject to Clause 3.3, please note that we shall have no Liability for:
3.5.1 loss of revenue;
3.5.2 loss of actual or anticipated profits;
3.5.3 loss of contracts;
3.5.4 loss of the use of money;
3.5.5 loss of anticipated savings;

3.5.8 loss of goodwill;
3.5.9 loss of reputation;
3.5.10 loss of, damage to or corruption of data; and
3.5.11 indirect or consequential loss.
The law on interpretation of limitations and exclusions of liability is extremely complicated – and, to be frank, a bit bananas! So to make sure this clause means what we think it means, please therefore note that apart from what we set out in Clause 3.3 of this Agreement, we understand the words “consequential loss” to mean “consequential losses whether those losses are foreseeable, known, foreseen or otherwise”.
3.6 Limits of Liability: Apart from what we set out in Clause 3.3of this Agreement (for which we have unlimited liability) and apart from what we say in Clause 3.5 (where we set out where we are never responsible), our total Liability to you or any third party shall in no circumstances exceed, in aggregate, a sum equal to £50.
