12. Third-Party Content

Pointpal, similar to an Internet Service Provider, is a distributor (and not a publisher) of content supplied by third parties and End Users. Accordingly, Pointpal has no more editorial control over such content than does a public library, bookstore or newsstand. Any opinions, advice, statements, services, offers, or other information or content expressed or made available by third parties, including information providers, or any other end users are those of the respective author(s) or distributor(s) and not of Pointpal.

In many instances, the content available through the Service represents the opinions and judgments of the respective information provider, end user, or other user not under contract with Pointpal. Pointpal neither endorses nor is responsible for the accuracy or reliability of any opinion, advice, or statement made on Pointpal by anyone other than authorised Pointpal employee spokespersons while acting in official capacities. Under no circumstances will PointPal be liable for any loss or damage caused by an end user’s reliance on information obtained through PointPal. It is the responsibility of End User to evaluate the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information, opinion, advice, etc., or other content available through Pointpal.

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder is a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. The section headings used herein are for convenience only and shall be of no legal force or effect. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, such invalidity shall not affect the enforceability of any other provisions contained in this Agreement, and the remaining portions of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect. The failure of either party to exercise any of its rights under this Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver or forfeiture of such rights or any other rights provided hereunder. PointPal’s headquarters are in New South Wales, Australia.
