You may not disassemble, decompile, reverse engineer or otherwise attempt to discover any source code contained in Buy My Clothes. Without limiting the foregoing, you agree not to reproduce, copy, sell, resell, or exploit for any purposes any aspect of Buy My Clothes (other than your own content).

Liability

You agree not to hold us responsible for any content posted by Buy My Clothes users.

We do not review user postings and are not involved in the actual transactions between users. As the items for sale or trade on Buy My Clothes are offered by users, we do not guarantee the accuracy of postings or the quality, safety or legality of the goods and services on offer.

We do not accept any liability for the posting of any unlawful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene or indecent information, or material of any kind which violates or infringes upon the rights of any other person, including without limitation any transmissions that encourage or represent conduct that would constitute a criminal offence, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any applicable law.

We do not guarantee continuous, error-free or secure access to our services. While we will use all reasonable efforts to maintain an uninterrupted service, we cannot guarantee this and we do not give any promises or warranties (whether express or implied) about the availability of our services.

Accordingly, to the extent legally permitted, we disclaim all warranties, representations and conditions, express or implied fitness for a particular purpose and those arising by statute. We are not liable for any loss, whether financial, goodwill, or reputation, or any special, indirect, or consequential damages arising from your use of Buy My Clothes, even if you advise us or we could reasonably foresee the possibility of any such damage occurring. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of warranties or exclusion of damages, so such disclaimers and exclusions may not apply to you.

Buy My Clothes is not liable for any part of the transaction between the seller and the buyer. Buy My Clothes only allows PayPal to PayPal transactions between users and therefore the PayPal buyer and seller protection is accordingly applicable. Disputes between users will be facilitated through the PayPal dispute resolution process and Buy My Clothes will provide any applicable evidence directly to PayPal upon their request.  There is no protection for traded items.

If Buy My Clothes is found to be liable, our liability to you or any third party (whether in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability in tort, by statute or otherwise) is limited to the lesser of (a) the total fees you pay to us in the 12 months prior to the action giving rise to liability, and (b) $200 AUD.
