employees or agents in circumstances where:

not an obvious consequence of our breach or not contemplated by you and
us at the time we entered into this contract);
• such loss or damage is caused by you, for example by not complying
with this agreement; or
• such loss or damage relates to a business (as we do not intend for
goods bought by Consumers to be used for business).
