    This offer is made without prejudice to DHL

    This offer is made without prejudice to DHL and should not be deemed to be an admission of liability by us. (From an email I received)

    I'm not familiar with legalese, but does the sentence above mean DHL doesn't acknowledge being responsible for the damaged parcel, and therefore I cannot sue them or pursue any legal action? The offer they made is essentially an act of good will, right?

    To live only for some future goal is shallow. It's the sides of the mountain that sustain life, not the top.

    They are making an offer without accepting any legal responsibility- it's a goodwill gesture, and cannot be used legally against them as they are not admitting anything.
