If the packaging turns out to be inadequate, Musical-Money Ltd can not be held responsible and will not be held liable for such damage.
Unsuitable or unsecure packaging means, a piece of equipment that has been exposed to the edge of the packaging.

We work with local crime prevention authorities and if we feel we need to ascertain proof of ownership, we are within our rights to take necessary steps to confirm that a piece of equipment is not stolen. If it is proven that a piece of equipment is stolen, we will inform the correct authority and steps will be taken to return the property to the rightful owner and prosecution may follow.
