Amendments to terms and conditions

New Zealand Consumer Law

Our services come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993. For major failures with the service, you are entitled:

  • to cancel your service contract with us; and
  • to a refund for the unused portion, or to compensation for its reduced value.

You are also entitled to be compensated for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. If the failure does not amount to a major failure you are entitled to have problems with the service rectified in a reasonable time and, if this is not done, to cancel your contract and obtain a refund for the unused portion of the contract.


This disclaimer set out in these terms and conditions does not attempt or purport to exclude liability arising under statute if, and to the extent, such liability cannot be lawfully excluded.

We do not accept liability to you for any loss or damage, however caused (including through negligence), which you may directly or indirectly suffer in connection with your use of, or reliance on information contained on or accessed through, the Cartology NZ website or any linked website, which would exceed in aggregate an amount of NZ$1.

To the extent permitted by the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 and other applicable laws, any condition or warranty which would otherwise be implied into these terms and conditions is hereby excluded.  If legislation implies any condition or warranty, and that legislation prohibits us from excluding or modifying the application of, or our liability under, any such condition or warranty (as for example may be the case with consumer guarantees under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993), that condition or warranty will be deemed included but our liability will be limited to:

  1. in the case of services provided by us, resupplying the services or payment of the cost of having the services resupplied; or otherwise
  2. to the maximum extent permitted by applicable laws.

You indemnify us and our related bodies corporate and our respective officers, employees and agents against all actions, claims and demands (including the cost of defending or settling any action, claim or demand) which may be instituted against us arising out of a failure by you to comply with these terms and conditions.
