Dispute Resolution

Disputes between Users

We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor disputes between Users.

Upon receiving notification of a dispute from the relevant User, we will liaise with each of the parties and attempt to facilitate a resolution. Each party to the dispute must cooperate and take all reasonable steps necessary to resolve the dispute.

In circumstances where we reasonably believe that a dispute has not been or will not be resolved by the Users despite any intervention or facilitation by us, we may make a ruling on the dispute. That ruling will be binding on the Users and by agreeing to these terms each User agrees that it will accept any ruling by us as final resolution of the dispute. Any failure to comply with a ruling made by us under this clause 13.1 will constitute a breach of these terms and is cause for termination of the Agreement.

Disputes between Users and Us

If a dispute arises out of or relates to these Terms as between us and a User, either party may not commence legal proceedings (except proceedings seeking interlocutory relief) in respect of a dispute arising out of these Terms (Dispute) unless it has complied with this clause 13.2 . A party claiming that a Dispute has arisen must notify the other party to the Dispute giving details of the Dispute.

During the 15-business day period after notice is given (or any longer period agreed in writing by the parties to the Dispute) (Initial period) each party to the Dispute (Disputant) must cooperate and take all reasonable steps necessary to resolve the Dispute.


If the Disputants are unable to resolve the Dispute within the Initial Period, each Disputant agrees that the Dispute must be referred for mediation to a mediator agreed on by the Disputant.

If the Disputants are unable to agree on a mediator within 7 days after the end of the Initial Period, then the parties must submit the dispute for mediation through the Law Institute of Victoria and have the President of that Law Institute appoint a Mediator and set the matter for mediation.

The role of the mediator is to assist in negotiating a resolution of the Dispute. A mediator may not make a decision that is binding on a Disputant unless that Disputant has so agreed in writing.

Each Disputant must pay its own costs of complying with this clause 13.2 . The Disputants must pay equally the costs of any mediator engaged.

The mediation will be held in Victoria, Australia.

After the Initial Period, a Disputant that has complied with this section may terminate the dispute resolution process by giving notice to each other Disputant. A party to a Dispute will only be entitled to pursue other remedies available to it at law or otherwise, if the parties have failed to resolve the dispute within 30 business days after commencement of dispute resolution.

All communications concerning negotiations made by the Disputants in connection with this dispute resolution clause are confidential and to the extent possible, must be treated as “without prejudice” negotiations for the purpose of applicable law of evidence.

No Waiver

No waiver of rights under this Agreement shall constitute a subsequent waiver of this or any other right under this agreement. Any failure on our part to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision.


If any provision of our Terms is unenforceable or invalid, it will be ineffective to the extent it is unenforceable or invalid and will not affect the enforceability or validity of the remaining provisions.

Law and Jurisdiction

These Terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Victoria, Australia. You submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of Victoria and Courts of Appeal from them for determining any dispute concerning these Terms.
