⁠79. Nothing in these Terms restricts, excludes, modifies or purports to restrict, exclude or modify any guarantees, rights or remedies which you may have under applicable statutory consumer guarantees, including under the Australian Consumer Law or equivalent State or Federal laws.

⁠80. Except to the extent we are unable to do so under law, we provide no warranty to you that our products and services will be uninterrupted or error free and we (including our officers, employees, agents and contractors) will not be liable in any way to you or anyone else for any loss or damage, however it arises out of or in connection with your access and use of our products and services. ⁠

81. To the maximum extent permitted by law, our liability for breach of any statutory consumer guarantee or other term (whether implied or otherwise) which cannot be excluded by law, is limited at our option to either, the supply of the products or services (or the equivalent products or services) again or the payment of the cost of having the products or services supplied again. ⁠

82. To the maximum extent permitted by law, our limitation of liability under these Terms applies to direct, indirect, consequential, special, punitive or other damages that you or others may suffer, as well as damages for loss of profit, business interruption or the loss of data or information, even if we are informed of their possibility. ⁠

83. To the maximum extent permitted by law, we accept no responsibility or liability for any errors in your advertisements and you must check your advertisements for errors as soon as they are placed on our websites and apps. ⁠

84. We agree to use reasonable efforts to publish advertisements on our websites and apps in the shortest possible time following your instruction to do so. You accept that new advertisers will undergo a verification process before an advertisement can be posted on our websites and apps and that this process may result in delays in posting your advertisement/s. We reserve the right to not create an employer account for you if you do not satisfy our verification requirements. ⁠

85. We cannot and do not guarantee or warrant to you that data and files accessible or available for download through our websites or apps and other products and services, will be free of infection or viruses, worms, Trojan horses or other code that manifest contaminating or destructive properties. You are responsible for implementing sufficient procedures and checkpoints to satisfy your particular requirements for accuracy of data input and output, and for maintaining a means external to our websites and apps (and other products and services) for the reconstruction of any lost data. ⁠

86. We act as a medium through which individuals seek employment opportunities. We do not vet, nor are we responsible for vetting, candidates or the representations made by them whether oral or in writing - including those representations appearing in candidates’ resumes or profiles.

89. In the event of a proposed Detrimental Change, you may elect to terminate the relevant aspect of your agreement with us during the Notice Period by providing at least 5 days’ written notice. For the avoidance of doubt, your agreement with us in relation to products and services not subject to the Detrimental Change will otherwise remain on foot (to the extent possible).

90. These Terms may be translated into the local language in the relevant territory. In the event of a conflict between the Terms in the English language version and the localised version, the English language version shall prevail.

92. You agree that we may contact you and / or your personnel via email, SMS and telephone from time to time to send you marketing and promotional materials regarding our products and services, including those of our affiliates and other partners. You can opt out at any time. ⁠

94. We reserve the right to terminate your agreement with us (or relevant aspect of our agreement) if you breach of these Terms. Such termination will not end provisions of these Terms that are capable of surviving termination. ⁠

95. Any clause within these Terms which is wholly or partially void or unenforceable is severed to the extent that it is void or unenforceable. The validity or enforceability of the remainder of these Terms is not affected. ⁠
