Liability of GMGL when using Our FREEPOST Service
GMGL shall not be responsible for any loss or damage to any package or parcel (“Parcel”) for non-delivery or mis-delivery if it is proved that the loss, damage, non-delivery or mis-delivery was due to the negligence or fault of you.
GMGL shall only be liable for non-delivery or mis-delivery if it is proved that the same was caused by the negligence or default of GMGL, which shall be determined by GMGL at its sole discretion.
It shall be your responsibility to satisfy yourself that any Parcel that you wish to have carried by GMGL or its affiliates, agents or representatives shall meet the weight and dimensions conditions stated in the scope of service. GMGL will accept no liability whatsoever for any loss or damage to such Parcel arising from the unsuitability of such Parcel.
Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, GMGL can under no circumstances whatsoever, accept any responsibility for any delay to Parcels not due to the negligence or default of GMGL or its agents, which shall be determined by GMGL at its sole discretion. Since GMGL is unable to assess the cost to you of the loss or damage of any Parcel until it is received and examined by GMGL, in no case whatsoever shall any liability of GMGL, however arising and notwithstanding any lack of explanation, exceed the cost value of the relevant goods in a Parcel. GMGL accepts no liability for consequential losses in the event of their loss or damage to the goods in the Parcel.
GMGL shall not be liable for loss or damage to any part of any Parcel (whether comprising one or more packages in the Parcel), or for the loss or non-delivery of the whole of any Parcel, or for damage, delay or detention or any part thereof however caused, unless GMGL is advised thereof in writing, of the fact of the loss or damage or mis-delivery (as the case may be) within 12 days from the date that you posted your Parcel(s)– this date will be printed on the Trade-In Confirmation Email.
Please contact Us by emailing [email protected] if you would like help with a lost Parcel.
GMGL shall not be liable for loss or damage to any part of any Parcel (whether comprising one or more packages in the Parcel), or for the loss or non-delivery of the whole of any Parcel, or for damage, delay or detention or any part thereof however caused, if the Parcel does not have a correctly printed label.
