To the extent that you acquire goods or services from us as a consumer within the meaning of the Australian Consumer Law set out in Schedule 2 to the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth), as amended or replaced from time to time, you may have certain rights and remedies (including, without limitation, consumer guarantee rights) that cannot be excluded, restricted or modified by agreement. Nothing in these terms operates to exclude, restrict or modify the application of any implied condition or warranty, provision, the exercise of any right or remedy, or the imposition of any liability under the Australian Consumer Law or any other statute, where to do so would contravene that statute or cause any term of this agreement to be void (“non-excludable obligations”).
