Neither party shall be liable for indirect or consequential losses. d) If Client fails to read the supplied session tips, and therefore fails to carry out required preparations prior to a session, C4LP will not be held responsible for any resulting reductions in quality or quantity of images supplied.
All images produced by C4L are edited/printed on a fully calibrated monitor, and all prints will be a true reflection of the editing carried out by C4L. C4L will not be held responsible for variances in images caused by clients viewing images on non calbrated screens or monitors. To ensure images are seen as intended it is advised that client views them at C4L studio & orders prints/products through approved C4L suppliers. No responsibility will be taken for poor quality prints or products being ordered from non professional labs, it is the clients responsibility to query poor quality products printed from digital files with their own supplier if purchased from a supplier not endorsed by C4L.
a) Although C4L will do its best to produce more proofs than discussed with the Client there is no guarantee that any particular number of proofs will be produced per gallery.

In the event of unco-operative children at a session of any kind, for any reason, C4L may not be able to capture any, or all the images the Client may have requested or expected. The Client is responsible for all older children at all times during sessions, including any damages or breakages incurred on any products, equipment, furnishings or other suchlike items in the studio. Breakages, whether accidental or otherwise must be paid for by the parental guardian at the time of the breakage. C4L will not claim on studio insurance for breakages or damage caused by children whilst under parental guidance in the studio.
b) C4L edits all images before presenting to Client. Additional edits may/are carried out at the descretion of C4L & before delivery to client, and C4L reserves the right to charge the Client for additional editing if detailed & extreme editing is requested by the client to cover time involved, at a rate of £15 per image.

9) RECEIPT OF PICTURES
a) The pictures are presumed to have been received in good condition unless the Client notifies C4L in writing of any discrepancy or error within 14 days of receipt.
