A Party may not commence court proceedings relating to any dispute arising from, or in connection with, these Terms (Dispute) without first meeting with a senior representative of the other party to seek (in good faith) to resolve the Dispute (unless that Party is seeking urgent interlocutory relief, or the Dispute relates to compliance with this clause). If the relevant Parties are unable to resolve the Dispute with 15 Business Days, any Party involved in the Dispute may (by written notice to the other Parties) submit the Dispute to mediation administered by the Australian Commercial Disputes Centre (ACDC), with such mediation to be conducted:
- In good faith;
- In New South Wales; and
- In accordance with the ACDC Mediation Guidelines
The costs of mediation are to be split between the relevant Parties, provided that each Party will bear its own costs in relation to the mediation.
If the Dispute has not been settled within 20 Business Days after the appointment of a mediator, or such other period as agreed in writing between the Parties, the Dispute may be referred by any Party involved in the Dispute (by written notice to the other Parties) to litigation.
If any of these Terms are held to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal for any reason, the remaining Terms will continue to apply.
Each User warrants and represents that it has not relied on any term, undertaking, inducement or representation made by, or on behalf of, us which has not been expressly stated in these Terms.
Nothing in these Terms is to be construed as creating a partnership between us and a Practitioner nor to constitute either party as the agent of the other.
Except as otherwise agreed in writing these Terms form the entire agreement between Users and us and supersedes any prior agreement covering the same subject matter and any prior written or oral representations.
Any failure or delay by a Party in exercising a power or right (either wholly or partially) in relation to this Agreement does not operate as a waiver or prevent that Party from exercising that power or right or any other power or right. A waiver must be in writing.
If a provision of these Terms is held to be void, invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that provision must be read down as narrowly as necessary to allow it to be valid or enforceable. If it is not possible to read down a provision (in whole or in part), that provision (or that part of that provision) is severed from these Terms without affecting the validity or enforceability of the remainder of that provision or the other provisions in these Terms.
If performance of these Terms or any obligation under these Terms is prevented, restricted or interfered with by reasons of Force Majeure and we are unable to carry out our obligations we will give you prompt written notice of such event, then our obligations shall be suspended to the extent necessary by such event. We will use reasonable efforts under the circumstances to remove such prevention, restriction or interference or to limit the impact of the event on our performance and must continue to perform with reasonable dispatch when the Force Majeure is removed.
