1.1 This agreement is made between the customer (“Customer”) who has booked a parking space or spaces through “We Deal Meet and Greet Ltd” (WDM&G Ltd) by whatever means, including but not limited to the website (“Website”), app, mobile device or phone contact centre and other methods as may be offered from time to time and the owner, car parking company, car parking supplier or operator (“Owner”) of the parking space(s) (the “Parking Facility”) which has been supplied to the customer by way of licence. The Parties and details of the Parking Facility and the period for which the Parking Facility has been booked (the “relevant Period”) are set out in the confirmation sent electronically by WDM&G Ltd to the Customer and the Owner on completion of the booking.
1.2 WDM&G Ltd is an agent for the Owner. Your car-parking contract is made with the Owner concerned, on its terms and conditions. Each Owner will generally accept responsibility for its own negligence and will maintain an insurance policy accordingly. It will not accept responsibility for the acts of any third party and neither will it accept responsibility for your car or anything in it, which is covered by any other insurance policy. Each Owner's terms and conditions are exhibited at each car park or are available on request.

1.5 The Customer agrees that he is responsible for ensuring that any person he allows to park the vehicle at the Parking Facility complies with these terms and conditions.
