As a result, if you are in Australia not all of the above limitations will necessarily apply to you. Nothing in these terms excludes, restricts or modifies any guarantee, warranty, term or condition, right or remedy implied or imposed by any applicable law which cannot lawfully be excluded, restricted or modified. If a guarantee, condition, warranty or term is implied or imposed in relation to these terms (a non-excludable provision) and we are able to limit your remedy for breach of such non-excludable provision, then our liability for a breach of a non-excludable provision is limited to one or more of the following, at our sole option:

  • in the case of goods, the replacement of the goods or the supply of equivalent goods, or the payment of the cost of replacing the goods or of acquiring the equivalent goods, or the payment of the cost of having the goods repaired.

Regardless of your residence or place where goods or services are purchased, to the maximum extent permitted by the applicable laws, your legal rights related to those goods or services are governed by the laws of the state of Western Australia.

Nothing in the Terms shall affect your legal rights under applicable consumer laws.

14. Limitation of Liability

To the extent permitted by applicable laws, ASLSC, officers, directors, employees, agents, suppliers, licensors, sponsors and third-party partners will not be liable for any indirect, special, punitive, incidental, exemplary, multiplied or consequential damages, lost profits or revenues or failure to realize expected savings, or any damages whatsoever, whether or not such party has been previously advised of the possibility of such damages, whether under contract, tort (including negligence) or any other theory, including without limitation, arising out of or in connection with any loss or other damages in connection with any unavailability or non-performance of the site or apps, errors, omissions, viruses and malicious code, unless such loss or damages are caused directly by ASLSC’s fraud, recklessness, gross negligence or negligence. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable laws, these limitations will apply notwithstanding any failure of essential purpose of any limited remedy.
