The parties hereto shall not be held to be in breach of its obligation hereunder nor liable to the other for any loss or damage which may be suffered by another party due to any cause beyond its reasonable control including without limitation any act of god, fire, storm, flood, lightening, strike, trade dispute, any act or omission of government or regulatory bodies or communications operators.
Changes to this Agreement

Investments and Financial Products
Stamps and certain other collectibles are not designated investments for the purposes of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Regulated Activities) Order 2001 and as such are not subject to regulation by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) or otherwise.
Stamps and certain other collectibles are not "Controlled Investments" for the purposes of the Protection of Investors (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 1987 (as amended) and as such are not subject to regulation by the Guernsey Financial Services Authority ("GFSC"). However Stanley Gibbons (Guernsey) Limited has registered with the GFSC under the Registration of Non-Regulated Financial Services Businesses (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2008 (as amended) as a financial services business and therefore is regulated by the GFSC in respect of Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financial Crime and Terrorist Financing matters.
All notices which are required to be given hereunder shall be sent by electronic mail and shall be deemed to have been given at the time the electronic mail is received at either party's electronic mail address.
If any provision of these Conditions is held to be invalid or unenforceable the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not be affected.
These Conditions constitute the entire agreement between SG and the User and supersedes all other (prior or contemporaneous) communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between User and SG regarding the SG Sites.
Any failure of SG to exercise or enforce any of its rights under these Conditions shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any such rights or operate so as to bar the subsequent exercise or enforcement of any such right.
Your use of this Site is governed by the laws of England and Wales and the parties hereto submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts in all disputes arising out of or relating to the SG Sites or these Conditions.
