14.13. Governing law
Other than for provision of this Agreement which specially concern the GDPR, the laws of Queensland, Australia govern this Agreement. The parties submit to the non‑exclusive jurisdiction of the courts exercising jurisdiction in Queensland.
Unless the terms and conditions of the Agreement explicitly state otherwise, the Agreement will be interpreted as follows:
- a reference to a party includes that party's permitted assigns, administrators, successors, executors, legal representatives and any novated party;
- any reference to a trustee includes any substituted or additional trustee;
- unless used for the usual grammatical purpose, inverted commas around a term indicate industry jargon that will be interpreted according to how that term would be understood by an individual with expertise in the relevant industry;
- "including", "includes" or any derivation of those words does not limit the matter in question to the things specifically mentioned in the applicable context;
- where a term is defined, other grammatical forms of that term will be taken to have the same meaning;
- headings are for convenience and will not affect interpretation;
- words in the singular will be taken to include the plural and also the opposite;
- a reference to a document will be to that document as updated, varied or amended;
- a document referenced by the Agreement will not take precedence over the referencing document;
- when any kind of legislative instrument is referenced, the reference will be taken to be that instrument as updated or substituted for by the legislative body in any way;
- where a "URL" is mentioned, the non-operation of the "URL" will not render the rights and obligations associated with it invalid;
- any referenced digital resource may be replaced with another digital resource that is a "copy" of the original resource;
- a reference to a party's conduct includes omissions as well as acts;
- if a party is described as having discretion in a matter, the discretion in that matter will be interpreted as sole and absolute; and
- where a party is required to do "anything necessary", this includes executing agreements and other legal instruments.
