Access to the Site is prohibited from jurisdictions where the Site or content is illegal or penalized. Scent Club Australia reserves the right to limit the availability of the Site and content to any person or jurisdiction in its sole discretion.
Except for instances of gross negligence, intentional wrongdoing, willful misconduct, or where we have a legal obligation to you, under no circumstances shall we or our affiliates, partners or licensors be liable to you or any other person for any indirect, incidental, consequential, or punitive damages arising out of or relating to these terms, or access to or use of the site or its content, purchase you make, user content or submissions to the site, whether such claim or action is based in tort, contract, negligence, strict liability statutory liability or otherwise and even if Scent Club Australia has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Your sole and exclusive remedy hereunder shall be for you to discontinue your use of the site and terminate these terms. These limited remedies shall apply notwithstanding any failure of their essential purpose. Certain state laws, including the laws of the State of Queensland, do not allow limitations on implied warranties or the exclusive or limitation of certain damages as set forth in this Section 22, so these limitations and exclusions apply to you only to the extent permitted by applicable law. If it is finally determined by a Court of law or an arbitrator that our limitation of liability set forth in this Section 22 does not apply to you, then you agree that our total liability in the aggregate for any claims made by you or any third party on your behalf shall not exceed 100 hundred Australian dollars (AU$100.00) or the total amount of your last Scent Club Australia purchase, whichever is greater.
