We will give you prior notice of any proposed change.
  2. You shall pay us such pre-approved additional charges (in accordance with our standard time rates) as we invoice from time to time for the supply of goods or services we are required or agree to provide as a result of our relationship with you and which were not expressly required by these terms.

  3. Where our Docketbook Services provides the facility to do so, you may make increases in terms of Users, dockets or other facilities available to you as part of the Docketbook Services for the fees designated by us for such increases. You may do this by making a new Docketbook Plan Selection. We will charge you for any such increases at the then applicable rates, prorated for the remainder of the then-current Subscription Period. For example, if your usage exceeds a docket limit under your current Docketbook Account, you will incur the overage at the applicable rate for that increased usage and you authorise us to add that overage to a following invoice.
  4. If you dispute the whole or any portion of an invoice submitted by us, you shall pay the portion of the amount stated in the invoice which is not in dispute and notify us in writing (within 5 business days of receipt of invoice) of the reasons for disputing the remainder of the invoice.

  6. Where a free trial is offered for the Docketbook Platform Service (but not Additional Docketbook Services and not for any increases referred to in clause 10.c above), you may terminate your initial Docketbook Plan for no reason or any reason, by providing notice of termination to us via your Docketbook Account no later than 10 business days after the Docketbook Plan request for such service.

  5. To the extent permitted under Mandatory Protections (as referred to in clause 12.g), you release, waive and discharge us and our related persons and their respective representatives, officers and employees and those in privity with them (“releasees”) from and against:

    i ) any loss (including legal costs, expenses and liability) incurred or suffered by any of the releasees arising from any claims against any of the releasees where such loss or liability was caused by a breach by you of your obligations under these terms or any of your wrongful, unlawful or negligent acts or omissions and

    (collectively “Claims”). The benefit to us under this clause is for all releasees and, in this regard, we shall be deemed to be acting as agent on behalf of and for the benefit of ourselves and those who are also named as releasees. To the extent permitted under Mandatory Protections, you agree to indemnify, defend, and save and hold harmless the releasees and each of them from any and all Claims.
  6. In respect of any Claim under or in connection with these terms, you and we agree that to the maximum extent permitted by law, these terms exclude the operation of any laws which would apportion any liability to us which would not have been so apportioned but for such laws.
  7. Each of us agrees that:

    i ) this clause 12.g applies notwithstanding anything else in these terms;

    ii in this clause 12.g, “Mandatory Protections” means guarantees under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) Schedule 2 (the Australian Consumer Law), and under the applicable legislation of any Australian State which implements the Australian Consumer Law in that State, to the extent they apply to our supplies under these terms and their limitation or exclusion would contravene or be void, voidable or unenforceable under such law;

    iii ) if there are Mandatory Protections in respect of our supplies under these terms, you and we agree that nothing, other than clause 12.h, purports to exclude, restrict or modify, or to have the effect of excluding, restricting or modifying:
    A. the application of all or any of the Mandatory Protections; or
    B. the exercise of a right conferred by the Mandatory Protections; or
    C. any liability of a person for a failure to comply with a Mandatory Protection to a supply of goods or services.
  8. If our supply of goods or services under these terms is not a supply of goods or services of a kind ordinarily acquired for personal, domestic or household use or consumption, then our liability for failure to comply with all or any of the Mandatory Protections (other than a guarantee under sections 51, 52 or 53 of the Australian Consumer Law) is limited to one or more of the following, at our election:

    in the case of goods:
    A. the replacement of the goods or the supply of equivalent goods;
    B. the repair of the goods;
    C. the payment of the cost of replacing the goods or of acquiring equivalent goods;
    D. the payment of the cost of having the goods repaired.

    in the case of services:
    E. the supplying of the services again; or
    F. the payment of the cost of having the services supplied again.

    This clause 12.h does not, however, apply if you establish that it is not fair or reasonable for us to rely on that clause. In determining whether our reliance on that clause is fair or reasonable, you acknowledge that section 64A of the Australian Consumer Law sets out the matters to which a court is to have regard should that question be considered by the court.
  9. The parties agree that any terms of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (also known as the Vienna Convention) which would, but for this clause, apply to these terms by virtue of any law are excluded.

If a Docketbook Service includes any facility (including any “white labelled” application provided by us) in respect of which you may wish to use trade marks or names other than the Docketbook or other trade mark which we, ourselves, have applied to that facility, you will require our prior written consent. We do not give you consent to use any Docketbook or other trade marks in which we have an interest. If we do give you consent, it will be subject to such brand use requirements, including as to quality control and cessation of use, as we then require and from time to time.

16. Force Majeure

We shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform our obligations under these terms if such delay is due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control (“Force Majeure”). If a delay or failure is caused or anticipated due to Force Majeure, our obligations will be suspended. If a delay or failure by us to perform our obligations due to Force Majeure exceeds 40 business days, we may immediately terminate these terms on providing notice in writing to you. If these terms are terminated pursuant to the preceding clause, we are not liable to refund any moneys paid by you pursuant to these terms on the principle that loss lies where it falls.

17. General

  1. These terms constitute the entire agreement between us and you and supersede all prior representations, agreements, statements and understandings, whether or not in writing.
  2. The benefit of these terms shall not be dealt with by you without our written consent, whether that dealing is by way of assignment, licensing or otherwise. You agree that if you dispose of any of your business assets to which the Docketbook Services are relevant, any use of the Docketbook Services by the acquirer is subject to that acquirer applying for and being accepted by us to hold a Docketbook Account, including on these terms.
  3. No right under these terms shall be deemed to be waived by you or us except by notice in writing signed by you or us as case may be. A waiver will not prejudice rights in respect of any subsequent breach. Any non-enforcement of these terms by either of us will not be construed as a waiver of rights.
  4. If any provision of these terms is held invalid, unenforceable or illegal for any reason, these terms shall remain otherwise in full force apart from such provisions which shall be deemed read down to the extent reasonably appropriate to remove the invalidity, unenforceability or illegality.
  5. You agree to comply with our reasonable requests to do such things as we reasonably request to give effect to facilitate our performance of these terms.
  6. You agree that an assignment, transfer, novation or any other dealing by us with our interests under these terms (“business transfer”) does not require your consent (prior or otherwise) and that if requested by us, you will accept the transferee as a or the counterparty to these terms from the date we notify you. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, we may disclose Your Information, and other such information as we consider reasonably appropriate about you or your Docketbook Services and suppliers and customers in connection with a business transfer, but will use reasonable efforts to ensure that the counterparty to a business transfer accepts obligations to safeguard such of your interests as we are obliged to safeguard under these terms.
  7. These terms will be governed by and construed according to the law in force in the State of Queensland, Australia.
  8. Where these terms permit or require us to notify you (whether or not in writing) we may do so via electronic means and through a notice posted on https://docketbook.com.au/ (where the notice is to several of our subscribers) or to the contact information in your Docketbook Account details or via any other address we have for you. We will endeavour to give you 10 business days’ notice of circumstances we are aware may have a material adverse impact on you, but you acknowledge that there may be circumstances where this is not reasonably appropriate.
  9. If the clauses in these terms conflict with the provisions of any Docketbook Policies or any other of our terms or notices referred to in these terms, the clauses in these terms have lowest priority when resolving the conflict.
  10. You and we agree that our relationship is that of independent contractors only. We agree that we are not partners and do not have any other relationship that would give either you or us the express or implied right, power or authority to create any duty or obligation on the other.
