‘Third Party’ means any individual, partnership, corporate body or other undertaking including (for the avoidance of doubt) any employee, agent or associated company of the Purchaser.

2. Exemption Clause

2.1. Whilst the Company has endeavoured in the collation of the Data to ensure their accuracy, the nature of the Data (as the Purchaser accepts and acknowledges) is such that the Data become incorrect through passage of time but to no pre-determined pattern and changes therein do not coincide exactly with the collation of the revisions of the Data.
