9.6 Non-excludable Claims

To the extent that the operation of this clause 9 would contravene or be rendered void under any provision of the Australian Consumer Law or any similar legislation, then the relevant part of this clause 9 shall be read down to the extent necessary to avoid that result. If such a reading down occurs in a manner that prevents the limits on Shippit’s liability above operating then, to the extent permitted by law, Shippit’s liability shall still be limited to supplying the relevant services again or the cost of having the relevant services supplied again.
