3. Adequacy of instructions
We provide services only on the basis that those instructing us give us all proper, necessary and timely instructions, authority and information (including the execution of all documents required) to enable us to undertake lawfully and effectively the business instructed, and that those instructing us indemnify us accordingly. 

4. Delivery of products and services
Products are delivered using first class post, fax or email (as appropriate), unless otherwise stated. Where you request an alternative method of delivery, you must meet those costs. Services are provided using reasonable skill and care.
