By submitting a rating, review, opinion, or testimonial you expressly agree that:

  • what you say is genuine and not defamatory or intended to harm our business or reputation;
  • you are a genuine, verified purchaser of the product or service that you are commenting on;
  • if we have failed to meet your expectations that you will ALWAYS let us know by email or telephone communication before you submit a negative rating, review, opinion, or testimonial;
  • that you have taken steps to ensure that you have not confused our business or your experience with us, with any other business providing like or similar products or services;
  • what you say (or images you send us) is non-confidential and non-proprietary;
  • you warrant that you hold the necessary rights, interests, and permission to use the content you provide and that nothing in your contribution would harm any third-party ownership, intellectual property, copyright, or trade mark rights; and
  • you grant us irrevocable, unrestricted, royalty-free license to use, modify, adapt, reproduce, communicate in any way and to creatively build from or develop content from what you say (or images you send us).

Your content

From time to time, you may submit your own content to us. In addition to your opinion, feedback, or testimonials, you may provide us with, or we may take or acquire, images, recordings or other material that relates to you or your business. You warrant that by submitting or agreeing to us taking or receiving any content, you are thereby granting us an irrevocable, perpetual, world-wide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sub-licensable and transferable license and right to use your content for the purpose of providing services to you or others and completing our business functions, now or in the future. We can decide, at our sole discretion, to remove or disable your content if we believe your content to be in violation of our terms of use or policies and we are not obliged to return any of your content under any circumstances and will not do so. We do not have to pay for your content, images and are not liable to pay you royalties of any nature. You indemnify us against any claims made for breach of intellectual property rights in respect of your content (if you provide it to us, you are telling us that we can use it) and agree not to seek any form of payment, royalties, or damages from us arising out of your content (or our use of it).

Website Security

We make industry standard efforts to maintain the security of our website and employ regular backups and scanning for security breaches. Despite this, we cannot guarantee that any site is impenetrable. We deny all liability for any unauthorised use or access of our site, content, and information. We are not responsible for computer viruses or technological problems that we do not intentionally cause or that are beyond our control. You are encouraged to install and maintain up-to-date security software on your computer.


Damage Event /Force Majeure

A Damage Event is something that is outside of your and our control. We are not responsible for any delay or failing beyond our reasonable control. For example, severe weather events, natural disasters, flooding, fire, cyclones, and other events such as explosions, war, industrial action, pandemic restrictions, or the spread of disease across our business or business industry. Labour and material shortages, supply chain disruption, third party delivery disruption, error, or loss, together with third party acts or omissions, unforeseen delay in manufacturing or material availability, cyber breach, interruption to internet services, virus, hacking, software, hardware, or communication network failure are also outside of our control and are considered a Damage Event. You are solely responsible for ensuring that you and/or your business or customers have adequate virus or other protections in place, for example, sufficient insurance to cover cyber security or fraud, business interruption, loss of profit or any other form of loss, damage or harm that may arise.


Limitation of liability

Subject to the requirements of Australian Consumer Law, our liability is limited for damages arising because of your use of our website/s, shopping cart or any e-commerce order placement or payment platform as follows:

  • if a warranty is implied by law, you agree that the total amount of our liability is limited (at our sole discretion) to the provision of that product or service again, or to a refund equal to the total amount paid by you to us for that product or service, even if we provided the product or service at no cost to you; and
  • we are not liable for any other damages or claims from you;
  • this limitation of liability applies to the fullest extent permitted by law and survives any termination or expiration of our terms of use.



You agree to indemnify and defend us to the fullest extent allowed by law from all claims, damages, liabilities, costs, or expenses (including without limitation court costs, collection costs, and reasonable legal fees) related to:

  • your use of any shopping cart, e-commence order placement or payment platform;
  • any content you post via our website;
  • your authorised or unauthorised use or misuse of our website, including our social media;
  • your authorised or unauthorised use or misuse of our products or services included or advertised on our website;
  • your breach of our terms or policies.


This does not limit our obligation to comply with lawful directions given to us by government, courts, law enforcement. If we are directed to provide information about your use of our website/s and the direction is lawful, then we will comply.



If any part of these terms of use or any other set of terms or legal policies belonging to us are found to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of law, it be deemed severed and will not affect the remainder of our terms which continue in full force and effect.
