Your use of this website is subject to the following terms and conditions:
- Use of My Website
The content of this website is for your general information and use only and is subject to change without prior notice.
You can only ever use my website for lawful purposes (such as researching my goods and services or contacting me) in a manner consistent with the nature and purpose of the website and in a way that doesn’t impact on anyone else’s use and enjoyment of the website. I have a zero-tolerance policy for users who conduct themselves unlawfully or encourage such conduct, post defamatory, obscene, offensive, or scandalous material, harass or cause distress or inconvenience to any person, or disrupt the website. I reserve the right to ban any users who engage in such behaviour.
You’re not permitted to change, add to, remove, deface, hack, or otherwise interfere with my website or any material or content displayed on the website or attempt to do any of those things.
Unauthorised use of this website may be a criminal offence and/or give rise to a claim for damages.
- Intellectual Property
This website contains material that is owned or licensed to me. This material includes, but is not limited to, the content, design, layout, appearance, look, graphics, text, logos, button icons, video images, audio clips, code, scripts, design elements and interactive features of the website, and is protected by copyright under the laws of Australia and through international treaties.
Unless I say otherwise, all rights (including copyright) in the website are owned by me and are reserved by me.
Any reproduction of the website or website content is prohibited other than in accordance with these terms.
All designs, trademarks, service marks and trade names are owned, registered and/or licensed by me, save for any trademarks reproduced on this website which are not the property of or licensed to me, which are acknowledged on the website.
As a user of my website, I grant you a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, revocable license to use my website in accordance with these terms, to copy and store the website and its content in your device’s cache memory and to print pages from the website for your own personal and non-commercial use.
Except as outlined above, I do not grant you any other rights whatsoever in relation to the website – all other rights are expressly retained and reserved by me, and nothing you do on or in relation to the website will transfer any intellectual property or associated rights.
If you would like to share my website or social media content that’s freely available for reuse or is in the public domain, you are permitted to do so as long as you attribute the same to me and link back to my website. If you’d like to share, re-publish, or otherwise use my website or content in a way that you aren’t expressly authorised to do by these terms, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
I’ll sometimes ask my users to contribute content to my website or social media. Before you do so, any material you send to me (including any data, comments, suggestions, ideas, designs, images, videos, audio, marks, or other information) will be deemed non-confidential and non-proprietary unless you tell me otherwise. You authorise me to use it for any purpose without compensation to you.
I maintain a blog on my website to keep you updated with the latest in travel. As a website user, I may give you the opportunity to comment on my blog posts. I reserve the right to remove comments that I consider may not align with my brand values. You are expressly prohibited from posting any comment or content that is defamatory, offensive, or otherwise inappropriate. You warrant that all information that you submit to me via my website is true and correct, to the best of your knowledge and information, and that you are the rightful owner of all intellectual property rights in such information.
I may also feature guest bloggers from time to time. I want you to know I don’t necessarily endorse or support any views, opinions, standards, or information expressed in guest blogs and/or the comments section of my blog.
If you find something offensive or inappropriate, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me, and I’ll review the material to see whether it should be removed.
- Links to My Website
If you would like to link to my website, please get in touch with me with your URL, a brief description of your website and why you want to establish a link. Please note that if I allow you to link to my website, I may impose certain terms and conditions.
If the nature or content of your website changes in any significant way after the authorised link is established, you must let me know and provide me with a new description of your website. If the change means that your website is no longer a good fit with mine, I may ask you to remove the link. Refusal will constitute a breach of these terms.
- Links From My Website to Other Websites
I may also, on occasion, include links to other websites which I do not control. These links are provided for your convenience to provide you with further information. You acknowledge that they are used at your own risk. Please note that I include these links for your convenience; however, I don’t necessarily endorse or support their views, opinions, standards, or information. I have no control over those websites’ nature, content, and availability. For your safety, please ensure you check the link sites’ protocols and standards before using them.
- Disclaimer and Indemnity
Nothing in these terms limits or excludes any rights, guarantees, warranties, representations, or conditions that you are entitled to by law that can’t be limited or excluded, including under the Australian Consumer Law, which forms Schedule 2 to the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) (ACL).
Apart from that, to the extent permitted by law, I exclude all terms, guarantees, warranties, representations or conditions as to the performance, accuracy, timeliness, completeness or suitability of the information and materials found or offered on this website for any purpose which are not expressly stated in these terms. You hereby acknowledge that such information and materials may contain mistakes, inaccuracies or errors, and I expressly exclude any liability for such to the fullest extent permissible by law.
I will not be liable for any special, indirect or consequential loss or damage (unless such loss or damage is reasonably foreseeable resulting from my failure to meet an applicable consumer guarantee to which you are entitled under the ACL), loss of profit or opportunity, or damage to goodwill arising out of or in connection with the website or these terms (including as a result of not being able to use the website), whether at common law, under contract, tort (including negligence), in equity pursuant to statute or otherwise. If I can’t exclude liability but can limit it, I limit it to be the maximum extent permitted under section 65A of the ACL.
I make the website available to you; however, you use it at entirely your own risk, for which I will not be liable. Everything on the website is provided “as is” and “as available” – I don’t make any representations or warranties of any kind – and I exclude all liability for loss or damage you might suffer because of:
- failures, errors, mistakes, inaccuracies, interruptions, defects, delays, viruses, lost, stolen, altered or misused data, unlawful third-party conduct arising out of the website;
- unsuitable or out-of-date information on the website (including third-party material and advertisements on the website);
- you or any other person acting or not acting on any information;
- personal injury or property damage of any nature resulting from you or any other person’s access to or use of the website;
- any unauthorised access to or use of information or data, including personal and financial information, collected by me;
- any interruption of transmission to or from the website;
- any malware (bugs, viruses, trojan horses, ransomware or other harmful code or communication) that may be transmitted to or through the website, including links to other sites;
- costs incurred by you in using the website; and
- links, which are provided for your convenience.
You are responsible for ensuring that any services or information available through this website meet your specific requirements.
You indemnify me from and against all claims, suits, demands, actions, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including legal costs and expenses on a full indemnity basis) resulting from your use of the website.
- Changes to Terms
If I decide to change these terms (and I can do so at any time), I’ll post a copy of my revised terms on my website. Changes to the terms will take effect immediately upon being published on the website. Your continued use of the website indicates your acceptance of the revised terms.
If any part of these terms is found to be void or unenforceable by a Court of competent jurisdiction, that part will be severed, and the rest of the terms will remain in force.
- No Affiliation
My website is not a part of the Facebook website, Facebook Inc, YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, or Google, nor is it endorsed by or affiliated with any of those websites or their owners in any way.
The agreement between us constituted by your use of the website may be terminated at any time by me without notice, in which case all disclaimers and limitations of liability will survive termination. However, you will no longer be authorised to access the website.
As I am based in New South Wales (“NSW”), these terms will be governed by the laws of NSW. In the event of any dispute, I ask that you first contact me, and I’ll do my best to resolve the dispute to our mutual satisfaction quickly, cheaply, and efficiently. If we do end up in court, you agree that the exclusive venue for resolving any dispute will be in the courts of NSW and courts of appeal from them.
