The websites which form the ‘Websites’ are operated by Medianet Australia Pty Ltd ABN 76 644 319 915 and its related bodies corporate (collectively ‘Medianet’).

3. Use of Content included on the Medianet Websites

All information, text and images included on the Websites is for personal use only and may not be re-written, copied, re-sold or re-distributed, framed, linked, shared onto social media or otherwise used whether for compensation of any kind or not, without the prior written permission of Medianet. Images displayed on Medianet NewsHub pages may be used for editorial purposes only.

To access some features of the Websites, you will need to create an account. When creating your account, you must provide accurate and complete information. We will give you usernames and passwords for those of your personnel specified in your Order Form which will enable them to access the Websites. You must keep the usernames and passwords secure and confidential. You are solely responsible for all activity that occurs through your account, including all content published using your account.

You agree to use our system in a manner that is fair and reasonable and in line with the commercial intentions of yourself and Medianet. For example, you will use our database of contacts only for the express purposes allowed under this Agreement, and will only use the distribution lists that are of relevance to the content you are distributing. 

4. Accuracy of content

The Websites and content included on them are published for information purposes only without assuming a duty of care. Medianet is not in the business of providing professional advice, and gives no warranty, guarantee or other representation about the accuracy of the information or images contained on the Websites. Medianet is not liable for errors, omissions in, delays or interruptions to or cessation of the Websites through negligence or otherwise.

5. Your Use of the Websites

You may submit content to the Websites, including material contained in press releases (including words and images) and personal information for the purposes of account registration and maintenance (collectively, “Your Content”).

You are solely responsible for the content, accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, appropriateness and copyright of Your Content. You must ensure that (a) you either own Your Content or have the right to publish Your Content; (b) use of Your Content does not infringe any intellectual property rights (including copyright) or other rights of any third party; (c) Your Content is not defamatory, obscene, offensive, false, misleading or unlawful in any way; and (d) Your Content is free of errors and viruses.

If we form the view that Your Content breaches the Terms or may harm our reputation or the reputation of the Site, we may immediately change Your Content, remove Your Content from the Site and suspend your ability to submit, upload or distribute Your Content. 

You authorise Medianet to reproduce, distribute, and communicate Your Content, on a commercial or non-commercial basis, to recipients selected by Medianet in its sole discretion, including the Websites, and to permit recipients to use the Content for internal purposes or commercially re-distribute for use by other recipients. Medianet reserves the right to receive payment from recipients for this.

6. Limitation of liability

To the maximum extent permitted by law, Medianet and its third party suppliers exclude all liability to any person for loss or damage of any kind arising from or relating in any way to the content included on the Medianet Websites and /or any use of the Medianet Websites. Where any law implies a condition, warranty or guarantee into these terms of use which may not be lawfully excluded, then to the maximum extent permitted by law, Medianet’s liability for breach of the condition, warranty or guarantee will at Medianet’s option be limited to the re-supply of the relevant service or the payment of the cost of having that service resupplied.

7. Payments

You agree to pay to us all applicable fees for using the Websites. Your Order Form indicates the applicable fees but we may change the fees and any change in fees will take effect once per calendar year upon notice to you. Fees are quoted in Australian dollars. 

If you are an individual consumer or a small business (employing fewer than 20 persons), we will give you at least 30 days’ notice of any change in the fees. 

Where you pay for Your Licence upfront by credit card through the point of sale for certain subscription services, we will provide you an invoice confirming your payment of the fees paid. Where you have not paid upfront by credit card, we may invoice you for all fees payable to us. The invoice will specify the due date for payment and the methods for payment.

Unless goods and services tax (“GST”) is expressly included, the fees to be paid do not include GST. To the extent that any supply made under or in connection with the Terms is a taxable supply, the GST-exclusive consideration otherwise to be paid or provided for that taxable supply is increased by the amount of any GST payable in respect of that taxable supply and that amount must be paid at the same time and in the same manner as the GST-exclusive consideration is otherwise to be paid or provided. A party’s right to payment under this clause is subject to a valid tax invoice being delivered to the recipient of the taxable supply.
