Nothing in these terms and conditions excludes, restricts or modifies any term, condition, warranty, guarantee, right or remedy (including but not limited to a guarantee under the Australian Consumer Law (“ACL”)) which cannot lawfully be excluded, restricted or modified.

The ACL contains guarantees that give consumers certain rights in relation to goods and services they acquire. These guarantees cannot be excluded, restricted or modified except in certain circumstances. Section 139A of the Competition and Consumer Act (2010) (Cth) (“CCA”) permits a term of a contact for the supply to a consumer of recreational services, to exclude liability of the supplier for death and personal injury arising from the failure to comply with a guarantee provided in sections 60 to 62 of the ACL. To the extent permitted by s139A of the CCA, the Participant acknowledges and agrees that Children’s Medical Research Institute excludes all liability in connection with the supply of recreational services for:

  • physical or mental injury;
  • the aggravation, acceleration or recurrence of a physical or mental injury;
  • the contraction, aggravation or acceleration of a disease; and
  • the coming into existence, the aggravation, acceleration or recurrence of any other condition, circumstance, occurrence, activity, form of behaviour, course of conduct or state of affairs in relation to an individual, that is or may be harmful or disadvantageous to the individual or community, or that may result in harm or disadvantage to the individual or community, resulting from a failure of Children’s Medical Research Institute to comply with a guarantee in sections 60-62 of the ACL. This exclusion of liability does not apply where significant personal injury is caused by the reckless conduct of Children’s Medical Research Institute in accordance with s139A of the ACL.
  • The Civil Liability Act 2002 (NSW) (“CLA”) permits a term of a contact for the supply of recreation services to exclude liability of the supplier for damages for harm resulting from a breach of an express or implied warranty that the services will be rendered with reasonable care and skill. To the extent permitted by law, the Participant acknowledges and agrees that Children’s Medical Research Institute excludes all liability for damages for any harm (including but not limited to personal injury or death, damage to property and economic loss and whether direct, indirect, special or consequential) from a failure to exercise reasonable care and skill, regardless of whether the claim is brought in tort (including in negligence), in contract, under statute or otherwise, where such liability results from breach of an express or implied warranty that the services will be rendered with reasonable care and skill. Except as expressly included in these terms and conditions, all implied terms, conditions, warranties, rights or other additional obligations that can be lawfully excluded are excluded from these terms and conditions.


Payment gateway
The Site utilises the PayPal payment gateway service to process payments made online.

Receipts
CMRI is a registered charity and issues receipts to individuals and organisations that make payments to it. CMRI’s receipt will record the details of a payment made. You are responsible for your own income tax and using any receipt issued by CMRI appropriately if you are claiming any tax deductions. If you or your organisation have banked funds on behalf of a group and wish for individuals to receive separate receipts, you need to provide CMRI with the individuals’ contact and payment details so the donation amounts can be reconciled and appropriately receipted.
