10.3. Subject to Clause 10.2:
(a) please note that we provide the Fellbase Products to you only for domestic and private use and not for any commercial or business purposes. Subject to Clause 10.2, we will therefore not have any liability to you for any loss of profits, loss of business or loss of business opportunity, or for any business interruption;

(d) in order to provide maps and routes, Fellbase uses a third party, OpenStreetMap as a free editable geographic dataset. You accept that OpenStreetMap is not a complete or accurate map of the world and that you should make your own judgement about whether to follow a particular route. Fellbase does not own or control the content including the source of the content from OpenStreetMap and as such you agree that Fellbase shall not be liable to you for any deficiencies, omissions, inaccuracies or errors in the content from OpenStreetMap that may result in death, loss or injury. Moreover, Fellbase disclaims any responsibility for any harm to you that results from downloading or accessing any information or material provided by OpenStreetMap.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the total liability of Fellbase, for any claim under these Terms, including for any implied warranties, is limited to the greater of one thousand pounds (£1,000).
