(i) any warranties concerning the availability, accuracy, appropriateness, reliability, timeliness, or usefulness of the content of the AE Digital Medium; and
(ii) any warranties of title, warranty of non-infringement, or warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. AE also makes no representations and warranties as to any hyperlinked websites and AE has no liability or responsibility with respect to your use of such websites. In some instances, content made available on the AE Digital Medium may represent the opinions and judgments of providers or users, such as user content. AE and its affiliates do not endorse nor shall they be responsible or liable for the accuracy or reliability of any statement made on the AE Digital Medium by anyone other than authorised AE employees acting in such capacity.
This disclaimer of liability applies to any damages or injuries caused by the AE Digital Medium, including, without limitation, those damages or injuries occurring as a result of:
(i) any error, omission, deletion, or defect in the content available on the AE Digital Medium; or
(ii) any failure of performance, error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation or transmission, computer virus, communication line failure, theft or destruction of records, information or data, unauthorised access to, alteration of, or use of records, information or data, whether for breach of contract, tort, negligence, defamation, or any other cause of action. AE does not warrant or guarantee that access to the AE Digital Medium will be uninterrupted or error-free.
Applicable law may not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so the above exclusion may not apply to you.
Limitation of liability
You acknowledge and agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, regardless of the form of action, whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, in no event will AE or its affiliates, including, without limitation, their respective officers, directors, employees, successors and assigns, be liable to you or any other party for any direct or indirect loss, damage, cost, expense or liability of any kind (“loss”) arising in any way out of or in connection with the availability, use, reliance on, or inability to use the AE Digital Medium, including (without limitation): damages for business interruption, loss of business and other profits, loss of programs, cost of replacing equipment or software or loss of records, information or data, loss of use of data, loss of revenue, loss of goodwill, loss of customers, loss of or damage to reputation, loss of capital, downtime costs, loss under or in relation to any other contract, or loss of anticipated savings or benefits;
(i) damages for business interruption, loss of business and other profits, loss of programs, cost of replacing equipment or software or loss of records, information or data, loss of use of data, loss of revenue, loss of goodwill, loss of customers, loss of or damage to reputation, loss of capital, downtime costs, loss under or in relation to any other contract, or loss of anticipated savings or benefits; any indirect, special, exemplary, punitive, incidental or consequential loss; or
(ii) any indirect, special, exemplary, punitive, incidental or consequential loss; or
(iii) any loss attributable to errors, omissions, or other inaccuracies in the AE Digital Medium. The exclusion of liability in this section 17 applies even if AE shall have been advised of the possibility of such loss.
Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for particular kinds of loss, in such states or jurisdictions, AE’s liability shall be limited to the extent permitted by law (thereby minimizing AE’s liability to you to the lowest amount that applicable law permits).
Exclusion of warranties
The Australian Consumer Law may confer certain rights and remedies on you in relation to the provision by AE of goods and services under these terms and conditions. Notwithstanding the disclaimers and limitations of liability in Sections 4, 16 and 17 above, these terms and conditions do not exclude, restrict or modify the application of any condition, warranty, guarantee, right or remedy conferred by or implied under any provision of the Australian Consumer Law or any other statute where to do so would:
(i) contravene the relevant statute; or
(ii) cause any part of these terms and conditions to be void and/or unenforceable (“Non-Excludable Obligation”).
Except in relation to Non-Excludable Obligations, all conditions, warranties and other provisions implied or conferred by statute, custom, or the general law that impose any liability or obligation on AE are expressly excluded under these terms and conditions.
In relation to Non-Excludable Obligations (other than a guarantee as to title, encumbrances or quiet possession conferred by the Australian Consumer Law), except for goods or services of a kind ordinarily acquired for personal, domestic or household use or consumption (in respect of which our liability is not so limited under these terms and conditions), AE’s liability to you for a failure to comply with any Non-Excludable Obligation is limited to:
(i) in the case of services, the lowest of the cost of supplying the services again and payment of the cost of having the services supplied again; and
(ii) in the case of goods, the lowest of the cost of replacing the goods, supplying equivalent goods or having the goods repaired, or payment of the cost of replacing the goods, supplying equivalent goods or having the goods repaired.
