AUSTRALIAN CONSUMER LAW

The Australian Consumer Law (as embodied in Schedule 2 to the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth)) requires that certain guarantees must be given by us to consumers in relation to the supply by us of goods or services to consumers ("Consumer Guarantees").  For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in these Terms is intended to exclude, restrict or modify the application of Consumer Guarantees, the exercise of a right conferred by a Consumer Guarantee or our liability for a failure to comply with a Consumer Guarantee.

In the event of our failure to comply with a Consumer Guarantee, our liability to you is limited to:

  1. in the case of goods supplied to you, the replacement of the goods or the supply of equivalent goods (or the payment of the cost to you of the replacement or supply), or the repair of the goods (or the payment of the cost to you of the repair); and
  2. in the case of services supplied to you, the supply of the services again or the payment of the cost to you of having the services supplied again.

APPLICABLE LAW

By visiting our Site, you agree that the laws of Australia, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms and any dispute of any sort that might arise between us.

OTHER TERMS, SITE MODIFICATION, AND SEVERABILITY

We may offer the opportunity to participate in sweepstakes or contests through the Site.  In addition to these Terms, the sweepstakes or contests will be governed by terms and conditions specific to those sweepstakes or contests.  If there is any inconsistency between these Terms and the terms and conditions for the sweepstakes or contest, the terms and conditions for the sweepstakes or contest will prevail to the extent of the inconsistency.

To the extent permitted by law, we may make changes to our site, policies, and these Terms at any time in our sole discretion.  The most current version of the Terms will supersede all previous versions and can be reviewed by clicking on the "Terms of Use" link located in the footer of the Site.  Your use of the Site after changes are made to the Terms signifies your agreement to such changes.

If any provision in these Terms shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that provision shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

The Sites may be accessed in Australia and overseas. We make no representations that the Sites comply with the laws (including intellectual property laws) of any country outside Australia. If you access the Sites from outside Australia, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for complying with the laws in the place where you access the Sites.
