You may not print, store, forward or copy this message or any part thereof or disclose or cause information in this message to be disclosed to any other person. Victory is not liable for the improper or incomplete transmission of the information contained in this electronic message, or for any delay in its receipt.
Victory is not liable for any harm or loss resulting from malicious software code or viruses in this e-mail or its attachments, including data corruption resulting there from.

A general authority granted in terms of a delegation of authority or resolution or any other similar document shall not confer the required authority to bind Victory unless specifically stated otherwise.
Unless expressly indicated as such, nothing in this e-mail constitutes an offer, warranty or representation from Victory. Victory expressly contracts out of sections 22 – 26 of the Electronic Communications and Transactions Act (25 of 2002) (“ECTA”). No electronic communication including any data message such as an e-mail or SMS, sent or received will give rise to a binding legal transaction.

Victory shall not be liable if any variation is effected to any document or correspondence emailed unless that variation has been approved in writing and signed by an authorised company representative.

In accordance with the ECTA, an e-mail is only deemed to be received by Victory once Victory acknowledges receipt thereof. Victory will be deemed to have sent an e-mail once reflected as sent on Victory e-mail server. An auto-reply shall not constitute a response for the purposes hereof. If this electronic message contains offensive, derogatory or defamatory statements or materials, it means the message has been sent outside the sender’s scope of employment with Victory and only the sender can be held liable in his/her personal capacity.
