- General Terms
6.1. You are reading a legal document which is the agreement between you, the Hirer (whom we refer to as “you”, “your” or the “Hirer” in this document) and us. You are agreeing to these terms and conditions herein, all of which are called the “Agreement”. We are Little Stars Soft Play Limited. We are a company registered in England with our registered office at <<INSERT>>. Our company number is <<INSERT>>. We refer to ourselves as “Little Stars Soft Play”, “we”, “us” or “our” in this document.
6.3. We are only responsible for what we set out in this Agreement and nothing else.
6.4. Limit on Liability:
6.4.1 Little Stars Soft Play always try our best at what it do. To give some legal backing to this, we confirm 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.
6.4.2 If there’s a conflict between what we say in different parts of this Agreement, this Clause 6.4 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 any part of them); or otherwise in relation to this Agreement or the entering into or performance of this Agreement.
6.4.3 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).
6.4.4 What you can and cannot take legal action against us for: If we fail in the provision of our services, 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).
6.4.5 To the extent permitted by law (and subject to Clause 6.4.3, please note that we shall have no Liability for:
18.104.22.168 loss of revenue;
22.214.171.124 loss of actual or anticipated profits;
126.96.36.199 loss of contracts;
188.8.131.52 loss of the use of money;
184.108.40.206 loss of anticipated savings;

22.214.171.124 loss of goodwill;
126.96.36.199 loss of reputation; and
188.8.131.52 indirect or consequential loss.
The law on interpretation of limitations and exclusions of liability is extremely complex. So to make sure this clause means what we think it means, please therefore note that apart from what we set out in Clause 6.4.3 of this Agreement, we understand the words “consequential loss” to mean “consequential losses whether those losses are foreseeable, known, foreseen or otherwise”.
6.4.6 Limits of Liability: Apart from what we set out in Clause 6.4.3 of this Agreement (for which we have unlimited liability) and apart from what we say in Clause 6.4.5 (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 the contract/hire price.
6.4.5. We shall not be liable for any breach of our obligations under this Agreement where we are hindered or prevented from carrying out our obligations by any cause outside our reasonable control.
