2.11 Delivery dates advised by us in an Order Confirmation (consisting of a delivery date for the Product and a date for the provision of the Test Information) are approximate and we will not be liable for any loss or damage due to our failure to meet scheduled delivery dates or for failure to give notice of delay.

Failure to register the Alpha Code and Numerical Code of the Product kit means you will not be able to access Test Information.

All positive, reactive or detected results must be verified by a doctor through a confirmatory test.
