Tickets may be issued by us or may be administered by a third party online booking service, Eventbrite, in which case you will need to register with that service to obtain a Ticket and to comply with its terms and conditions. We do not guarantee to allocate any given minimum number of Tickets for any Event, nor do we accept any responsibility if Ticket supplies have been exhausted.

Upon purchasing a Ticket and potentially at other times during the course of the Event we may collect information about you and/or the Student, including names, addresses, dates of birth, email addresses, phone numbers and other relevant details. You agree to provide accurate and complete information. We will use that personal information in accordance with our privacy policy.

5. Changes

7.4 Other than for the purposes of, and subject to the conditions prescribed under, the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth) and similar legislation throughout the world and except as expressly authorised under such legislation by these terms and conditions, you and the Student may not in any form or by any means record, reproduce, copy, adapt, translate, store, distribute, re-distribute, purport to sub-license, on-sell, print, display in public, perform, communicate to the public or create derivative works from the materials and information we disclose, provide or make available in the course of providing an Event, or of any substantial part thereof.

8. Supervision and Disclaimers

8.1 We will endeavour to provide reasonable care of the Student while at the Event but you agree and acknowledge that to the extent permissible at law we shall not be liable for any damage, accident, injury, loss (including loss of property), expense or liability that may arise during or as a result of the Event.

8.4 You accept that information or advice found or made available through the Event is general information, is not in the nature of advice and is not guaranteed to be error-free. Independent enquiries should be made before relying on anything said or done in the course of the Event. We disclaim any warranty that information, advice and material obtained in the course of providing the Event will be accurate, complete, reliable, current, useful or error-free. To the extent permissible at law, each Event is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis, without warranties of any kind other than those prescribed under the Australian Consumer Law or other applicable law.

8.5 We do not exercise any control over the content delivered or made available at Events.

8.6 Except to the extent required at law, we do not guarantee that any given Event will always take place or will proceed as scheduled or proposed.

8.7 We do not provide, nor do we accept any responsibility or liability for a Student’s travel to and from the Event, nor for any other costs associated with or incidental to their attendance, including the provision of food and/or beverage at the Event.

8.8 Attendance at the Event is not intended to replace the Student’s regular class/ lecture/ seminar attendance or each Student’s own general diligent study note taking and generation. The Event is intended to be used in conjunction with and not as a substitute for a Student’s own study notes and directions from their regular teachers and lecturers. The Student is responsible for maintaining classroom / lecture attendance and good study habits and for following the necessary syllabus.

8.9 We do not represent or warrant that attendance at the Event will lead to any particular study outcome or academic result. Where legislation (including the Australian Consumer Law) implies any condition or warranty, and that legislation prohibits us from excluding or modifying the application of, or our liability under, any such condition or warranty, that condition or warranty will be deemed included but our liability and the remedies available to you will be limited to the extent permissible at law.

8.10 To the extent permissible at law, in no circumstance will we be liable to you for any indirect, incidental, special and/or consequential costs, loss or damage (including loss of profits, revenue, production, goodwill, data or opportunity including educational opportunity) of any nature arising through or as a result of your attendance at, any inability to attend, or any cancellation, program modification or rescheduling of the whole or part of the Event, or through or as a results of use of or reliance on materials obtained during, as a result of or in connection with the Event.

9.3 You agree to fully indemnify and hold us (and our directors, officers and employees) harmless against any expenses, costs, loss or damage (including consequential loss) that we may suffer or incur as a result of or in connection with the Event and any breach by you or the Student of these terms and conditions.

9.4 If any part of these terms and conditions is found to be void, unlawful or unenforceable then that part will be deemed severed from the remainder of these terms and conditions and will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions.
