9.2. Notwithstanding that a sample of the Products may have been exhibited to and inspected by You, it is hereby declared that such sample was so exhibited and inspected solely to enable You to judge for itself the quality of the bulk and not so as to constitute a sale by sample under this contract.

However, since the Products are often supplied for uses outside of the scope of LCT’s knowledge or expertise, since variations in environment, changes in procedures or use, or extrapolation of data may cause unsatisfactory results and since Products and information are intended for use by purchasers having skill and know-how in the industry in relation to such Products and information, it is expressly agreed that it is Your sole responsibility to satisfy yourself as to the suitability of the Products for the particular use proposed and it shall be deemed that You have so satisfied yourself and accepted any resulting risk.

If LCT complies with this clause it shall have no further liability for a breach under the product warranty in respect of such Products.

In the event of the condition of the goods being such as might or would (subject to these conditions) entitle You to claim damages to repudiate the contract or to reject the goods You shall not then do so but shall first ask LCT to supply satisfactory substitute goods and LCT shall thereupon be entitled at its option to supply satisfactory substitute goods free of cost and within a reasonable time or to repay the price of the Goods in respect of which the complaint is made.

20.1. The waiver by LCT of any right or the failure by LCT to exercise any right or to insist on the strict performance of any provision of this contract shall not operate as a waiver of, or preclude any further exercise or enforcement of any other right or provision of this contract.
21. Exclusion of Liability
21.1. LCT shall not be liable in respect of claims arising by reason of death or personal injury except in so far as the same are attributable to a failure by LCT to exercise reasonable care.
21.2.

22. Possibility of Higher Liability on Vendor
