Looks great, except that you can remove one tiny bit of ambiguity by saying
"any damage or loss of profit caused" instead.  This places the conjuction
"or" firmly between the two intended nouns, and not between one of the
nouns and a noun that is object of a subordinate preposition.

This is an excruciatingly nitpicky point, I concede.
