Skip Terms of Use

5th February 2014
Before you start using Skip, our lawyers want you to know a few things. So read over this document and 
make sure you understand how it’s all going to work.
The Skip website skipapp.com.au, skip.com.au (and any associated device applications) (Skip) 
is a platform provided by Australian Local Search Pty Ltd (Us, We or Our). By using Skip You 
agree to comply with the Skip terms of use.

How Skip Works
Skip is a platform that connects buyers and sellers by enabling ends users (You) to select and purchase goods/services from participating third party advertisers (Advertisers). You will be required to pay for Your goods/services at the time of ordering through Skip and are responsible for collecting/redeeming Your 
goods/services at a time and location agreed between You and the Advertiser. 

If you would like a list of your last 10 transactions on Skip you can email us at support@skipapp.com.au.
PUT SIMPLY: Skip allows you to purchase items online. It’s up to you to be there when you say you will, if you get stuck talking to Barry from accounts that’s not the café’s fault.

Fees and Charges
When You use Skip no other fees or charges are payable other than those relating to goods/services purchased from Advertisers.

Responsibility for Content
You acknowledge that much of the content provided on Skip relates to Advertiser products, services or information (Advertiser Content). Advertiser Content is not endorsed by Us and We do not warrant that Advertiser Content is accurate, reliable, suitable, complete or of a particular quality. 

Your use of Advertiser Content will be on the terms and conditions agreed between You and the Advertiser. You must read all terms and conditions and make Your own enquiries with the relevant Advertiser directly and, if required, seek independent advice, before relying on Advertiser Content. We do not take ownership of any Advertiser Content, including any goods/services You may choose to purchase, at any time. You are responsible for enforcing any rights You may have. 

We may receive fees from third parties for Advertiser Content. You acknowledge and consent to Us receiving such fees.
PUT SIMPLY: Businesses are responsible for ensuring their products are correct on Skip.

Unauthorised/Mistaken Transactions
If you believe there has been a mistake or unauthorised transaction on Your account, please notify us along with details of the transaction at support@skipapp.com.au and we will investigate it. We will respond to You within two business days. You may also have rights to dispute transactions relating to Skip charged to Your scheme (e.g. Mastercard or Visa) credit or debit card with your bank. If You have such a transaction, You should contact Your bank for more information.

Intellectual Property
You grant Us and Our related bodies corporate a royalty free licence to use, reproduce, modify, adapt and communicate to the public the content that You provide to Us or We collect from You for the purposes of using Skip.

Our commitment to privacy is set out here. We collect, use and disclose personal information on the terms and conditions set out in Our Privacy Statement. This includes using Your personal information to help Us improve Our products and services and getting in touch with You to let You know about goods, services or promotions that may interest you. Neither We nor You will use or disclose personal information, as defined within the Privacy Act (1998), of other parties unless that use or disclosure is necessary to fulfil obligations under this agreement, is otherwise agreed in writing between the parties, or is required by law.

Your Use of Skip
By using Skip You warrant and represent that you:
  • are capable of forming legally binding contracts;
  • will not provide Your Skip log on credentials to any third party;
  • will not use Skip in a way that breaches these terms of use, any laws or infringes any rights of third parties;
  • will not interfere with anyone else’s use of Skip, including sending spam; and
  • will not copy, scrape or reproduce content from Skip including information about third parties without their consent.
In consideration of the circumstances, and where We think it is reasonable to do so, We may suspend or terminate Your access to Skip and reserve the right to take any appropriate steps at law to protect Our interests or those of third parties.
PUT SIMPLY: Don’t be that annoying person at a house party, otherwise we’ll have to politely ask you to leave (and by politely we mean suspend your account).

Ordering Alcohol through Skip
Some Advertisers may offer alcoholic drinks as part of their Advertiser Content (Alcoholic Goods). As with any other Advertiser Content, We do not endorse, promote, or warrant the quality of, Alcoholic Goods. 

You acknowledge and agree that any Alcoholic Goods are purchased from and provided by the Advertiser directly. 

An Advertiser has to be licensed to sell alcohol, and there are certain things it has to do, or not do, in order to comply with the terms of that licence. 

You acknowledge and agree that the Advertiser:
1. must refuse to provide You with the Alcoholic Goods if:
  • You are under 18 or appear to be under 18 and cannot provide valid ID;
  • You appear to be intoxicated;
  • You are disorderly; or
  • It is outside the trading hours listed on their licence.
2. may refuse to provide You with the Alcoholic Goods on any other reasonable grounds (Refusal).

It's generally against the law to buy or receive alcohol when You're underage, or to try to sneak by with a fake ID. Significant penalties may apply. 

Just to be clear, We take liquor laws very seriously - You should too.
PUT SIMPLY: Don't look at Skip like that weird guy with the mustache outside the Bottle-O who'll buy you a six-pack for $20 and a bag of chips. If you shouldn't be buying your booze at the bar, you shouldn't be doing it through Skip either.

Refunds on Refusal to Provide Alcohol
If the Advertiser Refuses to provide You with Alcoholic Goods You ordered through Skip, the Advertiser will let Us know and We will refund your purchase. This may take a few days. 

If You think You were Refused Alcoholic Goods, and haven't received a refund after 7 days, please notify Us (providing details of the transaction) at support@skipapp.com.au and We will investigate. 

Remember, it's Your responsibility to be there to collect goods ordered through Skip at the time and place agreed between you and the Advertiser. Failing to arrive at the collection point doesn’t count as a Refusal.

Mobile Security
Mobiles devices which do not have the manufacturer’s operating system installed on them, or that have been modified in a manner not authorised by the manufacturer, are untrusted mobile devices. 

If you use an untrusted mobile device to access Skip or You have installed applications on Your mobile device (other than those available from the manufacturer’s store), We will not be liable to You for any loss suffered.

Our Warranties and Limitation of Liability
Except for any express warranties set out in these terms and any term implied by law (that cannot be excluded) and Your rights under statutory guarantees provided under the consumer protection laws, We provide no warranties or guarantees to You (including in relation to the performance of Skip). 

While We use due care and skill in relation to the provision of Skip, neither We nor Our related bodies corporate warrant or guarantee that Skip will be continuously available, free from errors or omissions or provided to You within a particular time. If We fail to comply with a statutory guarantee (if it applies) or any term of this agreement, then We limit Our liability for that failure (where it is fair and reasonable to do so in respect of a statutory guarantee) to either supplying Skip again, free of charge to You or paying You the cost of having Skip supplied again. 

We are not liable for any loss to the extent that it was caused by You (for example, through Your negligence or breach of contract). You are not liable for any loss to the extent it was caused by Us. 

These terms and conditions are governed by the laws in force in the State of Victoria, Australia.
PUT SIMPLY: We’re not perfect. If something goes wrong we’ll stop playing ping pong and sort it out for you.

Promotional terms and conditions
Our promotional terms and conditions can be found here.

We may change these terms
We may change these terms of use by publishing an updated version on Skip and you may get a copy when accessing Skip next. Your continued use of Skip following any change will indicate Your acceptance of the change. If the change has a detrimental impact on you but is required by law, or is necessary for technical or security reasons and we will try and give you 3 days prior notice of the change. Otherwise we will give you 10 days notice of the change.

That’s it from our lawyers, enjoy using Skip!
