You must not provide a link to this Website, or any part of this Website, on any other website without the written permission of the Scouts Victoria. Scouts Victoria reserves the right to withdraw any linking permission without notice. Scouts Victoria is not responsible for, and makes no representations about, websites accessed through this Website which are not maintained, controlled or created by Scouts Victoria (“Third Party Sites”). While Scouts Victoria may provide links on its Website to Third Party Sites, the inclusion of such links is for your convenience and should not be interpreted as endorsement of the owner/sponsor of the Third Party Site to which the link relates or its content. Scouts Victoria takes no responsibility for the content of any Third Party Site nor does it give any warranty as to the accuracy, completeness or relevance of that content.
This Website may include facilities for purchasing goods or services, paying amounts (including donations) or undertaking other financial transactions (“Financial Facilities”). Scouts Victoria is not required to maintain any Financial Facilities and may cease providing any Financial Facilities at any time. Financial Facilities may be provided or facilitated by third parties (including financial institutions) (“Facility Provider”) who may have access to information you provide in the course of utilising Financial Facilities and you consent to this. Scouts Victoria is not responsible for the acts or omissions of Facility Providers including any failure to properly operate, administer, secure or provide any part of a Financial Facility. You agree that Scouts Victoria will not be responsible for any loss or damage you suffer as a result of utilising Financial Facilities, including the results of any third party’s unauthorised access to a Financial Facility, save where the loss or damage results directly from the fraud of an employee of Scouts Victoria.
Scouts Victoria does not guarantee that the use of Financial Facilities will result in the successful completion of any transaction and Scouts Victoria will not be deemed to have received any request, order or payment from you via a Financial Facility unless and until Scouts Victoria has provided you with a confirmation of receipt including specific details of the request, order or payment. A receipt generated by a third party (including any Facility Provider) is not a receipt from Scouts Victoria. You must retain records of any transaction you undertake which involves a Financial Facility to assist in any enquiry or dispute over that transaction and provide copies to Scouts Victoria upon request.
You agree to reimburse any fee or charge we pay as a result of you having insufficient funds or credit to complete a transaction or otherwise failing to comply with any requirements relating to the Financial Facility.
You agree to indemnify Scouts Victoria, its directors, officers, employees, consultants, agents and affiliates, from any and all claims (including third party claims), liabilities, damages and/or costs (including legal fees) arising from your use of this Website, violation of the rights of Scouts Victoria or any other user of the Website or breach of these Terms and Conditions.
