WARRANTIES AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
(or the Things You Can’t Sue Us For)

Third-Party Services. Our Services may contain links to third-party websites or services that we don’t own or control (for example, links to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Font sites). You may also need to use a third party’s product or service in order to use some of our Services. When you access these third-party services, you do so at your own risk. The third parties may require you to accept their own terms of use. Little Sweet Designs is not a party to those agreements; they are solely between you and the third party.

People You Interact With. You can use the Services to interact with other individuals, either online or in person (for example; in the private Members' only Facebook group). However, you understand that we do not screen users of our Services, and you release us from all liability relating to your interactions with other users. Please be careful and exercise caution and good judgment in all interactions with others, especially if you are meeting someone in person.

Warranties. Little Sweet Designs Pty Ltd is dedicated to making our Services the best they can be, but we’re not perfect and sometimes things can go wrong. You understand that our Services are provided “as is” and without any kind of warranty (express or implied). We are expressly disclaiming any warranties of title, non-infringement, merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, as well as any warranties implied by a course of performance, course of dealing or usage of trade.

We do not guarantee that: (i) the Services will be secure or available at any particular time or location; (ii) any defects or errors will be corrected; (iii) the Services will be free of viruses or other harmful materials; or (iv) the results of using the Services will meet your expectations. You use the Services solely at your own risk. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, so the above limitations may not apply to you.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, neither Little Sweet Designs, nor our employees or directors shall be liable to you for any lost profits or revenues, or for any consequential, incidental, indirect, special or punitive damages arising out of or in connection with the Services or these Terms. In no event shall Little Sweet Designs' aggregate liability for any damages exceed the greater of one hundred ($100) US Dollars or the amount you paid Little Sweet Designs in the past twelve months. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations may not apply to you.

 

CHANGES TO THE TERMS

We may update these Terms from time to time. If we believe that the changes are material, we’ll definitely let you know by doing one (or more) of the following: (1) posting the changes through the Services or (2) sending you an email or message about the changes. That way you can decide whether you want to continue using the Services. Changes will be effective upon the posting of the changes. You are responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any changes. Your use of the Services following the changes constitutes your acceptance of the updated Terms.

 

SOME FINER LEGAL POINTS

The Terms, including all of the policies that make up the Terms, supersede any other agreement between you and Little Sweet Designs regarding the Services. If any part of the Terms is found to be unenforceable, that part will be limited to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms will otherwise remain in full force and effect. Our failure to enforce any part of the Terms is not a waiver of our right to later enforce that or any other part of the Terms. We may assign any of our rights and obligations under the Terms.

We’re based in Adelaide, Australia, so any legal action against Little Sweet Designs Pty Ltd related to our Services must be filed and take place in Adelaide. The Terms and any action related to the Terms will be governed by the laws of the Australia (without reference to conflict of laws) and, in the absence of federal law and to the extent permitted under federal law, the laws of the State of South Australia.
