Southern Cross reserves the right to change these Terms and Conditions at its discretion by posting changes online. It is your own responsibility to review information posted online to obtain timely notice of any such changes. Your continued use of this site after changes are posted constitutes your acceptance of this agreement as modified by the posted changes.

  3. All material posted on this site is for the purpose of general information only. It does not constitute legal advice or other professional advice, and it is expressly not intended as, nor should it be treated or construed by you as, a substitute for a full and proper consultation with a qualified IP practitioner. Please therefore abstain from using the material posted on this site as anything else than information of a general nature on IP-related matters.

  4. This site and all of its contents, including any links or references to external internet sites listed, are provided “as is” and on an “is available” basis without any representation or endorsement made and without warranty of any kind, whether express or implied, including and not limited to the implied warranties of satisfactory quality, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement, compatibility, security and accuracy.

  8. If any of these Terms and Conditions should be determined to be illegal, invalid or otherwise unenforceable by reason of the law of any state or country in which these Terms and Conditions are intended to be effective, then to the extent and within the jurisdiction which that Term or Condition is illegal, invalid or unenforceable, it shall be severed and deleted from this clause.
