Article 6 – Liability
1) A warranty claim honored by Centaur Cargo does not automatically mean that Centaur Cargo also accepts liability for any loss or damage sustained. Centaur Cargo’s liability will never extend beyond what is defined in these warranty conditions and/or Centaur Cargo’s applicable general terms and conditions.
