The Client shall be liable for the first £2,500 of any claim made under such policy unless otherwise stated in the Proposal.

13.3 Unless the Proposal specifies that Peri Peri shall be liable for insurance, the Client shall keep the Hire Equipment insured with an insurance company of good repute against loss or damage from all normal business risks (including normal third party risks). The Client shall notify its insurers that the Hire Equipment and/or Event Management Services is on hire from Peri Peri and request the insurer to endorse a note of such interest on the policy of insurance naming Peri Peri as loss payee and shall on demand show to Peri Peri the policy of insurance, the premium receipts and insurance certificate and shall not use or allow the Hire Equipment and/or Event Management Services to be used for any purpose not permitted by the terms and conditions of the policy of insurance or do or allow to be done any act or thing whereby the insurance may be invalidated.
