12. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
12.1 Whilst the testing that we undertake is highly accurate, and we take the utmost care in providing our services, as with any testing, there is an unavoidable possibility of error and percentage of uncertainty in the provision of test results. Tests may sometimes provide inconclusive results for a variety of reasons, including the nature of the statistical analysis on which they are based. If you obtain a re-test from us or any third party, you may obtain a different result. This does not by itself indicate any test undertaken was faulty or inaccurate.
12.2 You are responsible for what you do. It is your decision on how to act based on our results of services. If you have any doubts or queries regarding the implications, accuracy or reliability of our test results, you should obtain advice from a suitably qualified professional and consider obtaining further tests to confirm. We will not be responsible for any loss or damage that you or any other person suffers as a result of anything you or any third party does, no matter how foreseeable or even if you have told us during the ordering or booking process.
12.3 Subject to clause 12.4, if we fail to comply with these terms or to use reasonable skill and care, we will be liable to you only up to the value of the price you have paid us for our services. We shall not be liable to you for any direct loss or damage you may suffer over and above such amount, including any losses related to any business of yours such as lost data, ticket and travel-related costs, lost profits, lost revenues or business interruption (in each case whether directly or indirectly arising); and we hereby exclude any and all product liability (if applicable) as well as liability for any indirect or consequential losses of any kind.
12.4 There are certain liabilities which cannot be excluded by law and nothing in these terms limits our liability where it is unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence, our fraud, or for breach of your statutory rights.
12.5 Our Services should not be used in an emergency. In the case of an emergency, you should contact the emergency services and/or your GP in the usual way.

13.3 If a court finds part of these terms illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
13.4 Even if we delay enforcing these terms, they can still be enforced later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking the contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you later.
