    3. GST:
      1. Taxable supply: If GST is payable on any supply made under this Agreement, the recipient of the supply must pay an amount equal to the GST payable on the supply. That amount must be paid at the same time that the consideration is to be provided under this Agreement and must be paid in addition to the consideration expressed elsewhere in this Agreement, unless it is expressed to be inclusive of GST. The recipient is not required to pay any GST until the supplier issues a tax invoice for the supply.

Payments: If the recipient is required under this Agreement to pay for or reimburse an expense or outgoing of the supplier, or is required to make a payment under an indemnity in respect of an expense or outgoing of the supplier, the amount to be paid by the recipient is to be reduced by the amount of any input tax credit in respect of that expense or outgoing that the supplier is entitled to.
      4. GST terminology: The terms “adjustment event”, “consideration”, “GST”, “input tax credit”, “recipient”, “supplier”, “supply”, “taxable supply” and “tax invoice” each has the meaning given in the A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999 (Cth) act.

If we are delayed from performing our obligations due to such a circumstance for a period of at least two months, we may terminate our agreement with you by giving you five Business Days' notice in writing.
    7. Disputes: Neither Party may commence court proceedings relating to any dispute arising from, or in connection with, this Agreement without first meeting with a senior representative of the other Party to seek (in good faith) to resolve that dispute (unless that Party is seeking urgent interlocutory relief or the dispute relates to compliance with this provision).
    8. Notices: Any notice required or permitted to be given to us must be in writing and addressed to us at the details set out below or to you at the details you provided for your Account.

    10. Relationship of Parties: This Agreement is not intended to create a partnership, joint venture or agency relationship between the Parties. Nothing in this Agreement gives a Party authority to bind the other Party in any way.
    11. Severance: If a provision of this Agreement is held to be void, invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that provision is to be read down as narrowly as necessary to allow it to be valid or enforceable, failing which, that provision (or that part of that provision) will be severed from this Agreement without affecting the validity or enforceability of the remainder of that provision or the other provisions.
    12. Assignment: We may assign our rights and/or obligations under this Agreement by providing you with written notice.
    13. Amendment: We may, at our discretion, vary this Agreement and will use reasonable endeavours to notify you of these changes by, for example, publishing varied terms on the Site or by sending an email to the billing or technical contact you designate in your Account.

Your continued use of the Services following any changes indicates your acceptance of the changes.
    14. Governing law: The Agreement is governed by the laws of Victoria. You irrevocably and unconditionally submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts operating in Victoria and any courts entitled to hear appeals from those courts and waive any rights to object to any proceedings being brought in those courts.
