7. Warnings and Disclaimers

The provisions in this clause are subject to all applicable laws which prohibit or restrict the exclusion or modification of implied warranties and/or limitations on our liability.

To the maximum extent permitted by law:

(1) You assume all risk: The website, including all functionality and content, is provided “as is” and may: (i) contain inaccuracies, errors and/or be out of date; (ii) be unreliable and unsuitable for your requirements and purposes; and/or (iii) not provide the results you desire. Your use of the website and related services is on the basis that you assume responsibility for all associated risks, whether or not those risks are foreseen.

(2) Exclusion of warranties etc: We exclude all representations and warranties in respect of the website and any products or ancillary services we provide and the subject matter of these Terms of Use, other than those expressly set out in these Terms of Use and those which by law cannot be excluded.

(3) Limitation of liability: We limit our liability to you (or anyone else) to the lesser of the amount we have charged you (or, where no amount has been charged, $10) or the cost of us remedying any defect. This means that our total liability (including the total liability of our officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives and third-party suppliers) to you or any other third-party, in aggregate, regardless of the nature of the claim (whether contract, tort, intellectual property-based or otherwise) and whether arising by way of losses, damages or otherwise is limited to the lesser of:

(i) the fees we have charged you (or if we have not charge you any fees, $10); or

(ii) the cost of us remedying any defect;

and all liability in respect of any special, indirect or consequential loss or damage is excluded (except for any consequential loss which cannot be excluded by law, such as that arising under the ACL).

You also agree to waive any claim which you may otherwise have against any of our third-party named partners or collaborators listed or referred to on our website. To the extent that any provision purporting to limit our liability is held to be unenforceable, our liability will be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.

(4) Where limitation cannot legally be limited, and where our products or services fail to meet the guarantees mandated by the ACL you may be entitled to:

(i) for any major failure and at your option, a refund and compensation for your losses or damages which were reasonably foreseeable; or

(iii) for a non-major failure and at our option, to have the goods (if relevant) repaired or replaced and/or to have the services (if relevant) re-supplied by us and/or to be reimbursed the cost of their re-supply and/or to provide you with a refund.

The security of any payments made in respect of the website (such as for membership) is dependent upon the security of our third-party payment systems provider(s). We in no way guarantee or make any recommendations as to the security or reliability of their systems. Any use of their payment systems is entirely at your own risk and you agree that we are in no way responsible for any inadequacy in the security measures or failures in the security of the payment systems. Should you prefer, you may contact us directly on info@reframingautism.org.au to discuss any alternative payment method.

8. Your liability to us

You agree to indemnify us and hold us (and our officers, agents and employees) harmless from any claim, demand, loss, cost or expense (including legal fees) made by a third-party arising out of or in relation to your breach of clauses 4 or 6 these Terms of Use.

9. Termination

These Terms of Use may be terminated at any time and for any reason by (i) you, by ceasing all further access to or use of the website or, if you have become a member, by advising us by email; or (ii) us, by ceasing to operate the website, terminating your membership or advising you by email. Termination may be of immediate effect and without any prior notice. Any rights, obligations and liabilities which have accrued at the point of termination will continue beyond and survive termination.

10. Miscellaneous

You agree that all notices and communications are effectively given to you if they are sent to your last advised email address.

You must not assign, sublicense or otherwise deal in any other way with any of your rights under these Terms of Use. If you do not comply with these Terms of Use you should immediately cease all use of the website.

These Terms of Use form the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the subjects set out in these Terms of Use. If any provision of these Terms of Use is invalid or unenforceable, the relevant provision shall be deemed to be removed and replaced with a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remaining provisions shall continue in full force and effect. Any failure to assert any right under the Terms of Use does not constitute a waiver of such right. No waiver of any term of the Terms of Use will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of that term. These Terms of Use are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of New South Wales, Australia and each party submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in that state.
