Australian Consumer Law

Notwithstanding anything in these Terms of Trade, consumers may have the benefit of certain rights or remedies pursuant to Australian Consumer Law in respect of which liability may not be excluded. Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under Australian Consumer Law. Consumers are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. Consumers are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure. To claim this warranty, the consumer must inform Data#3 (by providing notice to the address set out in these terms of trade) of a warranty issue within the warranty time period specified by the relevant goods manufacturer. Data#3 will assist the consumer with claiming the warranty from the relevant goods manufacturer. The relevant goods manufacturer will provide details as to who will bear the expense of claiming the warranty and (if applicable) how the consumer can claim expenses incurred in making the claim. The benefits to the consumer given by the consumer warranty are in addition to other rights and remedies of the consumer under a law in relation to the goods to which the warranty relates.

Exclusion of all other warranties

To the extent permitted by law, and except as set out in these Terms of Trade, we:
(a) provide the Goods and Consulting Services to you on an “AS IS” basis;
(b) exclude all warranties and conditions, express, implied or statutory (including all implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, lack of viruses, uninterrupted or error free operation, accuracy or completeness of responses or results, lack of workmanlike effort or non-infringement) regarding the Goods and Consulting Services provided to you; and
(c) limit the remedies available for a breach of any warranty given to you to the lesser of and to the extent that such breach of warranty is capable of remedy by employing commercially reasonable efforts (as determined by us acting reasonably and in good faith), the cost of repairing or replacing those Goods and Consulting Services; or paying the cost of having those Goods and Consulting Services repaired or replaced (as the context admits).
We accept no liability whatsoever for any resultant loss or damage arising directly or indirectly from any connectivity or integration with any existing Customer process, product, materials, environment that is not adequately accounted for in an Individual Contract, or inaccurate or incomplete Customer information.

Limitation of Liability

EXCEPT IN RESPECT OF PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH CAUSED BY A PARTY’S NEGLIGENCE, IN NO OTHER EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSS OR DAMAGES WHETHER SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES ARE ALLEGED AS A RESULT OF TORTIOUS CONDUCT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR BREACH OF CONTRACT OR OTHERWISE. Except in respect of personal injury or death caused by our negligence, our maximum liability to you in aggregate for all claims made against us in contract, tort (including negligence) or for any other common law or statutory cause of action or otherwise in connection with the subject matter of this Contract shall be limited to:

  • In respect of Goods, the component of the Price paid by you for such Goods under this Contract;
  • In respect of Consulting Services, the component of the Price paid by you for such Consulting Services under this Contract;

Where a claim(s) relates to both Goods and Consulting Services, the limits on our liability to you shall operate separately and independently of each other in respect of such Goods and Consulting Services.
