ReadeBook is not liable for physical or financial injury, loss or damage or for consequential loss or damage of any kind arising out of the supply, layout, assembly, installation or operation of the Goods or arising out of ReadeBook’ negligence or in any way.
Except for any provisions to the contrary contained in this agreement, ReadeBook is not under any duty to accept Goods returned by the Customer. ReadeBook will do so only on terms to be agreed in writing in each individual case.

If at the date of termination, there are any outstanding Fees owing by you, you will receive one final invoice via email. Once that invoice has been paid in full, you will not be charged again.
Termination of the Terms for Customers shall be without prejudice to any rights or obligations which arose prior to the date of termination.
Technical support in respect of the ReadeBook platform and ReadeBook Account will be provided to the Customer.
Questions about the Terms for Customers should be sent to ReadeBook Support.
The failure of ReadeBook to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms for Customers shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
If any provision of the Terms for Customers, including all terms and conditions and other documents it incorporates by reference, is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, such provision shall be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent allowed by law, and the remaining provision of the Terms for Customers shall remain in full force and effect.
The Terms for Customers, including the documents it incorporates by reference, constitute the entire agreement between you and ReadeBook and govern your use of the ReadeBook platform and your ReadeBook Account, superseding any prior agreements between you and ReadeBook (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms for Customers).
The Terms for Customers shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the South Australia, and subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of South Australia.
You acknowledge and agree that ReadeBook may amend these Terms for Customers at any time by posting the relevant amended and restated Terms for Customers on ReadeBook’s website and such amendments to the Terms for Customers are effective as of the date of posting. Your continued use of the ReadeBook platform and your ReadeBook Account after the amended Terms for Customers are posted to ReadeBook’s website constitutes your agreement to, and acceptance of, the amended Terms for Customers. If you do not agree to any changes to the Terms for Customers, do not continue to use the ReadeBook platform or your ReadeBook Account.
You will comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations in your use of the ReadeBook platform and your ReadeBook Account and your performance of obligations under the Terms for Customers.
All the terms and provisions of the Terms for Customers shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties to the Terms for Customers and to their respective heirs, successors, permitted assigns and legal representatives. ReadeBook shall be permitted to assign these Terms for Customers without notice to you or consent from you. You shall have no right to assign or otherwise transfer the Terms for Customers, or any of your rights or obligations hereunder, to any third party without ReadeBook’s prior written consent, to be given or withheld in ReadeBook’s sole discretion.
If any provision, or portion of the provision, in these Terms for Customers is, for any reason, held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, then such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability will not affect any other provision (or the unaffected portion of the provision) of the Terms for Customers, and the Terms for Customers will be construed as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision, or portion of the provision, had never been contained within the Terms for Customers.
I have read, agree with and accept these terms and conditions:
