Nothing contained in these Terms excludes, restricts or modifies the application of any condition, warranty or other obligation, the exercise of any right or remedy, or the imposition of any liability under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth), Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 (NZ) and/or Fair Trading Act 1986 (NZ) or any other national, State or Territory legislation (the "Acts") where to do so is unlawful.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Copyrights and permissions: Artwork, photography, and logos, including those for L’Oreal Professionnel used in conjunction with the Program, on the Website (if applicable) or in print are copyrighted intellectual property of us. These materials may not be reproduced, replicated or doctored in any manner. All other material, including text, photos, and design, is copyright to us and may not be reproduced elsewhere without explicit written permission. All sales and marketing brochures are to be used as reference only and not to be duplicated, printed or reproduced for commercial use.

Disputes: A party may not commence court proceedings relating to any dispute, controversy or claim arising from, or in connection with, these Terms (including any question regarding its existence, validity or termination) (“Dispute”) without first meeting with a senior representative of the other party to seek (in good faith) to resolve the Dispute. If the parties cannot agree how to resolve the Dispute at that initial meeting, either party may refer the matter to a mediator. If the parties cannot agree on who the mediator should be, either Party may ask the Law Institute of Victoria to appoint a mediator. The mediator will decide the time, place and rules for mediation. The parties agree to attend the mediation in good faith, to seek to resolve the Dispute. The costs of mediation will be shared equally between the parties. Nothing in this clause will operate to prevent a party rom seeking urgent injunctive or equitable relief from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.

Taxation: It is your responsibility to seek independent professional taxation advice in relation to the taxation effects arising from your membership, and participation in, the Program. You are responsible for any taxation liability or other government fees and charges relating to membership.

Governing law: These Terms are governed by the laws of Victoria. Each party irrevocably and unconditionally submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts operating in Victoria and any courts entitled to hear appeals from those courts and waives any right to object to proceedings being brought in those courts.

Severance: If a provision of these Terms is held to be void, invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that provision is to be read down as narrowly as necessary to allow it to be valid or enforceable, failing which, that provision (or that part of that provision) will be severed from these Terms without affecting the validity or enforceability of the remainder of that provision or the other provisions.

DEFINITIONS

In these Terms, unless the context otherwise requires, capitalised terms have the meanings given to them within these Terms, and:
