18.1 Governing Law and Jurisdiction: The laws of Western Australia govern this Agreement and any dispute of any sort that might arise between the parties. Any dispute relating in any way to this Agreement will only be adjudicated in the courts of Western Australia. Each party consents to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in these courts. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek injunctive relief in any state, federal, or national court of competent jurisdiction for any actual or alleged infringement of such party's, its affiliates' or any third party's intellectual property or other proprietary rights. The United Nations Convention of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, and any local laws implementing the Convention of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, do not apply to this Agreement. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHTS THAT YOU MAY HAVE TO BRING DISPUTES FOR RESOLUTION BEFORE ANY OTHER COURT, TRIBUNAL OR FORUM. You and we each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. We each waive any right to a jury trial.
18.2 Assignment: You may not assign this Agreement, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. Subject to that restriction, this Agreement will be binding on, inure to, and be enforceable against the parties and their respective successors and assigns. Any attempt to assign or otherwise transfer in violation of this section is void provided, however, that upon notice to VooGlue, you may assign or transfer this Agreement, in whole or in part, to any of your Affiliates as long as you remain liable for your obligations that arose prior to the effective date of the assignment or transfer under this Agreement. You agree that we may assign or transfer our rights and obligations under this Agreement: (a) in connection with a merger, consolidation, acquisition or sale of all or substantially all of our assets or similar transaction; or (b) to any Affiliate or as part of a corporate reorganization; and effective upon such assignment, the assignee is deemed substituted for VooGlue as the party to this Agreement.

We may perform any of our obligations or exercise any of our rights under this Agreement through one or more of our Affiliates.
18.3 Waiver: Our failure to enforce your strict performance of any provision of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of our right to enforce such provision or any other provision of this Agreement subsequently.
18.4 Agency: Because VooGlue is not your agent (except for the limited purpose set out in the Payment Collection Services Terms), or the customer’s agent for any purpose, without limiting our rights arising from or relating to any actual or potential negative customer experience or dispute, VooGlue will not act as your or a customer’s agent in connection with resolving any disputes related to or arising out of any of Your Transactions.
18.5 Other: VooGlue retains the right to immediately halt any of Your Transactions, prevent or restrict access to the Services or take any other action to restrict access to or availability of any inaccurate listing, any inappropriately categorized items, any unlawful items, or any items otherwise prohibited by applicable Program Policies.
18.6 Notices: Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, we will provide all notices and other communications regarding this Agreement to you by posting changes on Seller Central or on the applicable VooGlue Services site to which the changes relate (such as the Developer site accessible through your account), by sending you an email notification, or by similar means. You may change your email address or nominate additional email addresses for notifications within Seller Central or by any other means then specified by VooGlue. You will ensure that all of your information is up to date and accurate at all times. You will be deemed to have received any email sent to the email address then associated with your account when we send the email, whether or not you actually receive the email. You must send all notices and other communications relating to VooGlue to our Merchant Services Team by using the Contact Us form available on Seller Central.
18.8 Severability: If any provision of this Agreement is deemed unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these terms and conditions and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

P-1 Payment Collection Agency Appointment.
You authorise VooGlue to: (a) act as your payments collection agent, in accordance with these terms, for the purpose of receiving and processing payments and refunds, making adjustments for Your Transactions, receiving and holding Sales Proceeds on your behalf and remitting Sales Proceeds to Your Bank Account, in connection with the sale of Your Products on the Site; and (b) charge your Credit Card, and pay VooGlue and its Affiliates amounts you owe in accordance with this Agreement or other agreements relating to the Site that you may have with VooGlue Affiliates. VooGlue provides the services described in these Payment Collection Service Terms and the related services described in Sections S-1.4, S-2.2, S-5, and F-8.3 of the Agreement (collectively, the "Payment Collection Services").
You agree that buyers satisfy their obligations to you for Your Transactions when we receive the Sales Proceeds. In the event of non-payment to you by VooGlue, you agree that you will not have any recourse against buyers, you will not make or attempt any contact with buyers, and your only recourse in the event of non-payment is against VooGlue. We will remit funds to you in accordance with this Agreement.
Subject to Section 2 of the General Terms of this Agreement, VooGlue will remit funds to you in accordance with Section S-5 of this Agreement and these Payment Collection Service Terms. VooGlue's obligation to remit funds collected by it on your behalf is limited to funds that have actually been received by VooGlue less amounts owed to VooGlue, and is subject to any withholding, deduction chargeback, reversal or claim made under or in relation to this Agreement. Without limiting VooGlue's rights to collect any amounts you owe, VooGlue's receipt of Sales Proceeds discharges your obligation to pay applicable fees and other amounts under this Agreement to the extent the Sales Proceeds equal or exceed the fees and other amounts you owe and the Sales Proceeds are applied to the payment of those fees and amounts.

Your Sales Proceeds will be held in an account with VooGlue (a "Seller Account") and will represent an unsecured claim against VooGlue (but subject to the terms of Section S-5 of this Agreement). Your Seller Account is not a deposit and is not insured as a deposit. Prior to disbursing funds to you, VooGlue may combine Sales Proceeds held with the funds of other users of the Services, invest them, or use them for other purposes permitted by applicable Laws. You will not receive interest or any other earnings on any Sale Proceeds. To the extent required by applicable Laws, VooGlue will not use any funds held on your behalf for its corporate purposes, will not voluntarily make such funds available to its creditors in the event of bankruptcy or for any other purpose, and will not knowingly permit its creditors to attach such funds.
We may at any time require you to provide any financial, business or personal information we request to verify your identity. We may obtain, and you authorise us to obtain and use from time to time credit reports about you. You agree to update all Seller Account information promptly upon any change.

We will owe no further obligation to pay you all or any part of that available balance, on the date that is 12 months after the last transaction conducted on your Seller Account. During that 12 months period, we will make reasonable efforts to ensure payment to you of your available balance to you, subject to and such that the payment is calculated on the terms of Section S-5 of this Agreement.
