10. Limitations of Terms and Liability
Subject to overall provision in this agreement, you expressly understand and agree that Kindyhub, and its licensors shall not be liable to you for any direct, indirect, incidental, special consequential or exemplary damages, which may be incurred by you, however caused and under any theory of liability. This shall include, but not be limited to, any loss of profit (whether incurred directly or indirectly), any loss of goodwill or business reputation, any loss of data suffered, cost of procurement of substitute goods or services, or other intangible loss.
11. Statutory Liability
Nothing in this Terms and Conditions purports to exclude, restrict or modify any condition, warranty, right or remedy which we must, by any applicable law, observe in your favour, and which we cannot, by contract, exclude, restrict or modify. To the extent such applicable law permits us to limit our liability in respect of such condition, warranty, right or remedy, we do so, including, in the case of Services supplied pursuant to this Terms and Conditions, the payment of the cost of having the Services performed again.
You agree that you are solely liable for the use you make of the results of our Services. You agree to indemnify us from any loss, cost, expense, demand or liability we suffer because of any claim which would not have been made against us had we not entered into this Terms and Conditions (other than to the extent our breach of this Terms and Conditions or negligence contributed to the claim).
13. Force Majeure
Neither Party shall be liable to the other Party (other than Customer’s obligation to pay Fees for Services already provided under this Agreement to Customer) for any default, delay or hindrance in the performance of any of its obligations under this Agreement to the extent such default, delay or hindrance is caused by fire, flood, earthquake, elements of nature or acts of God, acts of war, riots, terrorism, revolutions in any country, strikes or labour difficulties or any other similar cause beyond its reasonable control (each a “Force Majeure Event”). In the event of a Force Majeure Event, the parties shall be excused from further performance of the obligation(s) for as long as such Force Majeure Event prevails and the parties continue to use commercially reasonable efforts to recommence performance to the extent possible. If either party is so prevented, hindered or delayed in its performance, the nonperforming party shall immediately notify the other party.
Kindyhub may vary the terms of these Terms and Conditions at any time by giving it to you in person, sending it to you by mail or to your email address, making the information available on our websites. Such variations will only affect agreements entered into by you and us after the date of our notice.
15. Governing law
The laws of the state of NSW govern this Terms and Conditions and you and we submit to the non- exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of that state.
Before resorting to litigation to resolve any dispute between us, we agree to allow a period of 14 days to elapse and, within that 14-day period, to hold good faith negotiations with a view to endeavouring to resolve that dispute.
