All guarantees, conditions and warranties whether expressed or applied as to the condition, suitability, quality, fitness or safety of any goods and services supplied under the Palmers Education Website Platform, other than those implied or imposed by statute, are excluded to the extent permitted by law. All guarantees and warranties implied or imposed by statute are excluded to the extent expressly permitted by statute.

Any liability Palmers Education may have to a member under any such guarantees or warranties implied or imposed by statute which cannot be excluded is limited, where Palmers Education is expressly permitted by statute to limit your remedy for a breach of that guarantee or warranty, to supplying or paying the cost of supplying, the goods (or equivalent goods) or services again or repairing or paying the cost of repairing the goods, at Palmers Education’s sole option.

Applicable Law

TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW YOU AND PALMERS EDUCATION AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SERVICE MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE.

Consumer Laws

Despite any other provision of these Terms of Use, if any legislation affects your rights under these Terms of Use (a "Consumer Law"), then to the extent that any term or provision contained in these Terms of Use:

1. becomes void or unenforceable for any reason; or
2. would be unfair under the applicable consumer law if applied or relied upon in a particular way,
that term or provision will be severed such that all remaining terms and provisions of these Terms of Use will continue to be in full force and effect and be unaffected by the severance of any other term or provision.

No provision of these Terms of Use limits, excludes or modifies any right or remedy, or any guarantee, warranty or other term or condition implied or imposed by any Consumer Law which cannot lawfully be excluded, limited or modified.

No Waiver

Palmers Education's failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be deemed to be a waiver of such right or provision.
