12. OTHER BUSINESSES
Parties other than Amazon operate stores, provide services, or sell products on this website and we provide links to the sites of affiliated companies and certain other businesses. We are not responsible for examining or evaluating, and we do not warrant or accept any responsibility or liability for the actions or offerings of, any other party or the content of their websites. You can tell when a third party is involved in your transactions, and we may share your information related to those transactions with that third party.

13. AMAZON'S ROLE
Amazon, through Amazon Marketplace, allows third party sellers to list and sell their products on Amazon.com.au. The relevant seller is indicated on the respective product detail page. While Amazon helps facilitate transactions that are carried out on the Amazon Marketplace, Amazon is neither the buyer nor the seller of the seller's items. Amazon provides a venue for sellers and buyers to negotiate and complete transactions. Accordingly, the contract formed at the completion of a sale for these third party products is solely between the buyer and seller. Amazon is not a party to this contract nor assumes any responsibility arising out of or in connection with it nor is it the seller's agent. The seller is responsible for the sale of their products and for dealing with any buyer claims or any other issue arising out of or in connection with the contract between the buyer and seller. Because Amazon wants the buyer to have a safer buying experience, Amazon provides to the buyer the Amazon A-to-z Guarantee in addition to any contractual or other rights or remedies that the buyer may have against the seller or any other party.
14. DISCLAIMER AND LIABILITY
Unless otherwise specified in writing, Amazon disclaims, and does not make, any representation or warranty of any kind in respect of the Amazon Services including without limitation any representation or warranty (i) that they are free of viruses or other harmful components; (ii) that your use of the Amazon Services will be uninterrupted or error-free; or (iii) as to the suitability or availability of the Amazon Services.
Amazon will not be responsible for: (i) losses arising from the unavailability of, or your inability to use any Amazon Services), (ii) losses that are not directly caused by any breach on our part; (iii) any business loss, loss of sales, profits, revenue, contracts, anticipated savings, data, goodwill or wasted expenditure; (iv) any indirect or consequential losses; (v) any delay or failure to comply with our obligations under these conditions if the delay or failure arises from any cause which is beyond our reasonable control. For any other loss relating to an Amazon Services, we limit our liability to the amount you have paid to us for the relevant Amazon Service.
Nothing in these conditions is intended to (i) override any express commitments Amazon gives to you for particular Amazon Services (for example, commitments Amazon gives to provide a refund of fees in certain circumstances) or (ii) exclude, restrict or modify any right or remedy you have in statute including under the Australian Consumer Law or otherwise to the extent that that right or remedy cannot be excluded, restricted or modified under law. Any disclaimer, exclusion, or limitation in these conditions applies as provided for in these conditions to the full extent permitted by law and subject to any such non excludable right or remedy.
15. APPLICABLE LAW
The laws of New South Wales govern this Agreement and any dispute of any sort that might arise between the parties. Any dispute relating in any way to this Agreement will only be adjudicated in the courts of New South Wales. Each party consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in these courts. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek injunctive relief in any state, federal, or national court of competent jurisdiction for any actual or alleged infringement of such party's, its affiliates' or any third party's intellectual property or other proprietary rights. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, and any local laws implementing the Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, do not apply to this Agreement.

If any of these Conditions of Use is deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.
If you breach these Conditions of Use and we take no action, we will still be entitled to use our rights and remedies in any other situation where you breach these Conditions of Use.

If you are using certain Amazon Services (e.g. Amazon mobile applications) the Order Confirmation may be posted on a Message Centre on the website. The Order Confirmation is acknowledgement that we have received your order, and does not confirm our acceptance of your offer to buy the product(s) ordered. We only accept your offer, and conclude the contract of sale for a product ordered by you, when we dispatch the product(s) to you and send e-mail or post a message on the Message Centre of the website confirming that we've dispatched the product to you (the "Dispatch Confirmation"). If your order is dispatched in more than one package, you may receive a separate Dispatch Confirmation for each package, and each Shipment Confirmation and corresponding dispatch will conclude a separate contract of sale between us for the product(s) specified in that Dispatch Confirmation. Your contract of sale is with Amazon Commercial Services Pty Ltd.
