The remainder of this agreement will then be construed as though the unenforceable provision had never been contained within this document.
3. Warning under the Competitions & Consumer Law
Under the Australian Consumer Law several statutory guarantees apply to the supply of certain goods and services. These guarantees mean that the supplier is required to ensure that the recreational services it supplies you:
• Are rendered with due care and skill; and
• Are reasonably fit for any purpose which you either expressly or by implication make known to the supplier; and
• Might reasonably be expected to achieve any result you have made known to the supplier.
Under Section 64A of the Australian Competitions and Consumer Law, BTBT is entitled to ask you to agree that these statutory guarantees do not apply to you. If you agree to this you will be agreeing that your rights to sue BTBT under the Australian Competition and Consumer Law if you are killed or injured because the services provided were not in accordance with these guarantees, are excluded, restricted or modified in the way set out in this document.
Note: the change to your rights as set out in this form, does not apply if your death or injury is due to gross negligence on BTBT’s part. Gross negligence, in relation to an act or omission, means doing the act or omitting to do an act with reckless disregard, with or without consciousness, for the consequences of that act or omission.
4. Cancellation Policy
Cancellations with less than 4 days notice will incur a fee of 100% of the total purchase price. Cancellations greater than or equal to 4 days notice will incur a fee of $30 per person. Alterations can be made to departure dates and times at no cost up until 24 hours prior to the tour, subject to availability.
