If you have any questions or concerns about our terms and conditions, Services or Website, or any purchase you make through the Website, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
While we take every care to make sure our Website is accurate and up to date, we’re only human and from time to time, mistakes may occur (for example, a pricing error or inclusions error).
Please note that when you submit an order through the Website, no agreement is formed until we process and accept your order and send you a confirmation. If there’s been an error leading to your order (such as a pricing error), we may choose not to complete the order, but we’ll be sure to contact you to discuss your options (for example, placing an order at the correct price).

EVENTS BEYOND CONTROL

Please note that we may include these links for your convenience, however we don’t necessarily endorse or support the views, opinions, standards or information expressed on them.

AUSTRALIAN CONSUMER LAW
The Services come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law, which forms Schedule 2 to the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) (ACL).
Nothing in these terms excludes any right, guarantee or warranty you’re entitled to by law, however we do exclude all other guarantees, conditions and warranties to the maximum extent permitted by law. We also specifically exclude liability for negligence.
Wherever possible, our liability for breach of any condition, warranty or guarantee is limited, at our option, under s64A of the ACL to replacement of the Services or the cost of having the Services replaced, or such other remedy that we see fit.
We won’t be liable for any consequential loss or damage or other direct or indirect loss or damage, except where we are unable to limit or exclude such loss under the ACL (for example, we are unable to exclude or limit liability for consequential loss arising out of a breach of a consumer guarantee).
DISCLAIMER AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Except as set out above, to the maximum extent permitted by law, we exclude all terms, guarantees, warranties, representations or conditions which are not expressly stated in these terms and conditions.
Please note that we will not be liable for any special, indirect or consequential loss or damage (unless such loss or damage is reasonably foreseeable resulting from our failure to meet an applicable consumer guarantee to which you are entitled under the ACL), loss of profit or opportunity, or damage to goodwill arising out of or in connection with the Services, Website or these terms and conditions (including as a result of not being able to use or access the Services or Website), whether at common law, under contract, tort (including negligence), in equity, pursuant to statute or otherwise.
We make the Services available to you, however you use the Services at your own risk. Everything in the Services is provided "as is" and "as available" – we don’t make any representations or warranties of any kind.
If for any reason you are not a consumer of Services for the purposes of the Australian Consumer Law, we exclude all liability to you, however arising, including by negligence.

However, while course fees are non-refundable, clients may have extenuating circumstances that prevent them from undertaking their consultation. Where evidence can be successfully provided to support the client’s circumstances, course fees may be refunded or partially refunded as per the following:
A full refund is permitted if the enrolment is cancelled prior to the commencement date and if access to resources has not been provided yet.

RELATIONSHIP OF PARTIES
The relationship between the parties is that of independent contractors and nothing in this Agreement is to be construed as constituting an agency, partnership, joint venture, relationship of employee and employer or franchisor and franchisee or any other form of association between the parties.
If a dispute arises between the parties, the party claiming the dispute must not commence any court or arbitration proceedings (except where they seek urgent interlocutory relief), unless they have first complied with this clause.
The party must inform the other party in writing of the following:
the nature of the dispute;
the outcome they desire to resolve the dispute, and
the action they believe will settle the dispute.
On receipt of the notice by the other party, both parties will make every effort, without delay and in good faith, to resolve the dispute by mutual negotiation within fourteen (14) Business Days.
If the parties are unable to resolve the dispute in that time, the parties must agree on selection of a mediator (if the parties are unable to agree, they agree to request that the President of the Law Society of South Australia appoint a mediator) and will be equally liable for the fees and reasonable expenses of the mediator and the cost of the venue of the mediation (to be paid in advance). The parties must each pay their own costs associated with the mediation, which must be held in Adelaide, South Australia.
The existence of a dispute or the commencement of proceedings does not affect the obligation of the parties to continue to perform their obligations under this Agreement.
This clause survives termination of this Agreement.
INDEPENDENT LEGAL ADVICE
You can seek independent legal advice on these terms and contact us to negotiate changes or amendments to these conditions before proceeding with your order. If you don’t do so, we’ll take it that you’ve read, understood and agreed to be bound by these conditions, and that you consider the conditions fair and reasonable and not against public policy.
We may make permitted variations to these conditions at any time by updating this document and giving notice to you by posting a copy on the Website, or otherwise notifying you in writing. The variations will take effect thirty (30) days after the date of posting. Your continued access and use of the Services will indicate your acceptance of the variations.
Permitted variations will be limited to those reasonably required by us to protect our legitimate business interests and which do not seriously impact the benefit you receive under this Agreement.
If any part of these conditions is found to be void or unenforceable by a Court of competent jurisdiction, that part will be severed, and the rest of the Agreement will remain in force.
The rights of each party under this Agreement are personal. You may only assign, charge, transfer or otherwise encumber or dispose of any of their rights under this Agreement with our prior written consent, which can only be withheld on reasonable grounds. We may assign, charge, transfer or otherwise encumber or dispose of any of their rights under this Agreement on giving you notice in writing.
The contents of this Agreement constitute the entire agreement between the parties and supersede any prior negotiations, representations, understandings or arrangements made between the parties regarding the subject matter of this Agreement, whether orally or in writing.
A party’s failure or delay to exercise a power or right does not operate as a waiver of that power or right. The exercise of a power or right does not preclude its future exercise or the exercise of any other power or right.
This Agreement commences on the date that it is accepted by you and will remain in force until each party has fulfilled their obligations under this Agreement, unless terminated earlier in accordance with this Agreement or general law.
We may terminate this Agreement at any time on thirty (30) days’ written notice to you. All disclaimers and limitations of liability will survive termination. Any accrued rights or remedies to which either party is entitled will not be affected.
As we’re based in South Australia, these conditions will be governed by the laws of that state/territory. If we do end up in court, you agree that the non-exclusive venue for resolving any dispute will be in the courts of South Australia, Australia.
