4. DELIVERY

a)Any date or time quoted for delivery of goods or provision of services is an estimate only and Credenza Exports shall endeavour to effect delivery and provide services at the time or times required by the Customer, but failure to do so shall not confer any right of cancellation or refusal of delivery on the Customer or render Credenza Exports liable for any loss or damages directly or indirectly sustained by the Customer as a result thereof.
