Checking of Medications and Product Quality

13. Upon delivery, you will undertake to check the medication labels to verify that the medications match the prescription orders.

14. SGH Pharmacy will not be liable for any defects in products delivered unless the recipient, within three (3) days of delivery of the product, communicates to SGH Pharmacy, verbally or in writing of the purported defect.

Exclusion and Limitation of Liability

17. SGH shall not be liable for any losses, damages or expenses sustained by individuals or by any other person in consequence of any delays in delivery, if such delays are at request of the individuals, or owing to the inability or refusal of the individuals or those present at the address at the time of attempted delivery, to take delivery of the medication order, whether by reason of lack of reasonable access to the address or place of delivery or otherwise, or to causes beyond the control of SGH or the medication delivery personnel.

18. Your rights and obligations under these terms and conditions may not be assigned either in part or in whole without prior written consent from SGH. SGH, however, reserves the right to assign its obligations and rights under these terms and conditions.

Force Majeure

19. SGH shall not be liable for any delays, omissions or failures in the performance of its obligations if such causes are the result of acts of God, acts of war, civil unrest, states of emergency, industrial disputes or unrest, material shortages or rationing, law or government regulations, failures or interruptions in the supply of utilities or in respect of any telecommunication or information system, or any other causes beyond our control.

Governing Law

20. These terms and conditions constitute the entire agreement. This agreement shall be governed in all aspects by the laws of the Republic of Singapore.
