Secure may also at its discretion provide parking on the terms of this Agreement at a reasonably nearby car park instead of the Secure Car Park specified in your Application. Reallocation to a nearby car park is at Secure’s sole discretion and may be made for operational reasons including damage to or closure of any car park, road closures or other operational reasons affecting Secure, including if a car park becomes unavailable to Secure. Upon reallocation by Secure, any necessary changes shall be deemed made to your Application.
6 Vehicle access
6.1 Before parking a Vehicle you must validate your Access Device. To validate your Access Device you must notify Secure of the Vehicle to which the Access Device corresponds, the Vehicle owner’s name and Vehicle registration number (and any other details Secure requests) and Secure must confirm access to the Secure Car Park for that Vehicle.
6.2 If you use an Access Device, or permit it to be used, so as to park more than the Agreed Number of Vehicles in a Secure Car Park at any one time, you agree to pay for parking the excess vehicles at the daily tariff rates for casual parking at the relevant Secure Car Park at the time those vehicles were parked. Secure may require you to pay this amount at any time.
6.3 As a condition of granting such additional access, Secure may charge you its then current fee for issue or alteration of additional Access Devices. Where access arrangements are varied as to the Vehicle or otherwise in any respect you must also pay Secure’s then current charges for relevant system changes (for example licence plate recognition) or if no fee is then current, a fee Secure determines in its discretion acting reasonably.
6.4 If you are not in possession of your validated Access Device when entering or leaving a Secure Car Park you must pay the daily parking tariff for casual parking at the Secure Car Park at that time. All Access Devices remain the property of Secure and must be returned when this Agreement ends or earlier if Secure requests it. Should any Access Device not be returned for any reason, or be damaged, you must pay Secure’s then current Access Device replacement fee.
7.1 You must pay Secure the Permanent Space Fees without any deduction monthly in advance. Permanent Space Fees are due and payable before the first day of every calendar month, with the first pro rata payment due on the date of this Agreement. Secure may charge a reasonable fee for processing payments made by credit card.
7.2 Any other purchase, receipt, consumption, value added or sales tax or levy, or any other duty tax or other impost that may be imposed in respect of any Permanent Parking Space or upon car parking or the Secure Car Park (Parking Impost), or upon this Agreement or anything supplied under this Agreement, is not included in the Permanent Space Fees or other fees charges and charges. You must pay to Secure any Parking Impost charged to or payable by Secure by law or otherwise to the extent which Secure considers the Parking Impost directly or indirectly attributable or apportionable to any Permanent Parking Space or any supply to you and that amount shall be recoverable by Secure on demand.
8 Parking and related obligations
8.1 You agree with Secure:
(a) that your obligation to pay any amount, fee or charge set out in this Agreement arises at the time specified for payment of that amount, fee or charge or, if no time is specified, on the completion of the services to which that amount, fee or charge relates.
(b) to pay Secure’s reasonable charges for any additional service (such as battery charging, call-out or after-hours exit) Secure may provide to you from time to time.
(c) to pay interest on demand to Secure in respect of any amounts, fee or charge not paid when due under this Agreement. Interest is to be calculated daily at the cash target rate published by the Reserve Bank of Australia from time to time plus a margin of 3% per annum. If that rate is unavailable Secure may choose a reasonably equivalent rate.
(d) to comply with all the rules and regulations relating to the management and use of each Secure Car Park as may be made from time to time by Secure, and to obey all lawful directions given by Secure and in particular, those applicable to the display of or use of the Access Device, speed restrictions, traffic flow directions and areas designated as being either "no parking" or "reserved parking". The conditions of parking displayed at the entrance or within a Secure Car Park from time to time shall be deemed to be incorporated in this Agreement so far as they are not varied by or inconsistent with the express terms of this Agreement.
(e) to use the Secure Car Park only during the Authorised Access Hours.
(f) (if applicable) to allow Secure to access for any lawful purpose (including but not limited to carrying out repairs in a Secure Car Park) any part of a Secure Car Park which you may be entitled to access but Secure would not for any reason be entitled to access but for this clause.
(g) to ensure that any Authorised Parker complies with all obligations of this Agreement in respect of parking, access and conduct, as if they were you.
(h) that Secure may act on and you will be bound by any person appearing or purporting to act on your behalf in respect of all matters to do with this Agreement including its variation and termination.
(i) to comply with Secure’s requirements from time to time about the manner of payment of amounts under this Agreement.
(j) to take all reasonable steps to prevent the unauthorised use of any Access Device.
(k) that Secure may request your (or your Authorised Parker’s) proof of identity or signature at points of exits of Secure car parks.
(l) pay Secure for any damage caused by you, your Authorised Parker, or your Vehicle to the relevant Secure Car Park including, but not limited to, any damage caused by oil or other substances which leak from your vehicle.
9 Security Deposit
9.1 On signing this Agreement, you must pay the Security Deposit and account establishment fees referred to in Item B4 of your Application. The Security Deposit may be held by Secure and applied and set-off by Secure toward any costs incurred by Secure if you breach this Agreement or toward any amount unpaid by you.
10 Variation of fees
10.1 Unless otherwise agreed by Secure, Secure may give you one month's prior written notice at any time and from time to time of a variation of the Permanent Space Fee or any other fee specified in your Application.
11 Risk, liability and the Australian Consumer Law
11.1 The Australian Consumer Law (ACL) provides consumers with guarantees that cannot be excluded, restricted or modified. This Agreement does not affect any rights you have under the ACL or any other legal rights which cannot be excluded or modified.
11.2 However, to the extent permitted by the ACL and subject to any other legal restriction, Secure excludes:
(a) any terms, conditions, warranties, guarantees or other liability that might apply to Secure in respect of this Agreement or anything done under it; and
(b) any liability for any indirect, special, consequential or economic loss or damage whether or not arising from default or negligence by Secure or its employees or agents, including loss or damage to your Vehicle.
11.3 For services other than services of a kind ordinarily acquired for personal, domestic or household use or consumption Secure limits its liability, at its option, to the re-supply of the services or the payment of the cost of having the services supplied again.
11.4 You must indemnify Secure in respect of all losses, costs or expenses which Secure suffers or incurs in respect of: (a) a breach of this Agreement by you or your Authorised Parker, including enforcing them; (b) the Vehicle; or (c) your use, or your Authorised Parker’s use, of a Secure Car Park. In the case of paragraphs (b) and (c) your liability to indemnify Secure is reduced to the extent that any relevant expense is caused by Secure’s negligence or default.
12.1 Secure and its contractors or agents may move any Vehicle parked in a Secure Car Park (including by entering and driving it, lifting it, sliding it or towing it) if it decides that it is reasonably necessary in an emergency, if it reasonably appears to Secure to be abandoned, or if it reasonably considers it necessary for the safe or efficient operation of a Secure Car Park. Secure may charge you a reasonable amount for moving the vehicle if the need to move it arises because you or your Authorised Parker has breached this Agreement, appear to abandon the vehicle, or have caused obstruction or during the period of retention or sale for non-payment. Secure may deny a Vehicle access to or departure from a Secure Car Park if any amount you owe Secure has not been received by Secure by the time it is due.
12.2 Unless the contrary is clear, fees or charges payable under this Agreement are calculated exclusive of GST and Secure may add GST to any such amount and the GST shall be payable at the same time as fee, charge or other amount is payable. If the fee, charge or other amount is inclusive of GST but the rate of GST varies from that previously applicable, Secure may vary it accordingly.
12.3 This Agreement does not affect any common law or statutory lien or other rights Secure has over any vehicle. You grant Secure a ‘security interest’ as defined in the Personal Property Securities Act 2009 (Cth) in the vehicle to secure everything you owe Secure. Secure may retain possession of the vehicle until everything you owe Secure in respect of this Agreement has been paid. Amounts Secure claims will continue to accrue during the period that Secure retains the vehicle until Secure recovers all amounts it can claim from you. If amounts due to Secure remain unpaid after 30 days, you agree that Secure can sell the vehicle and use the proceeds to pay the amounts you owe Secure and you agree to take all steps required by Secure to permit Secure to do so.
12.4 You agree and accept that Secure does not accept, nor does it have authority to accept, any vehicle or any other goods or chattels for secure or safe parking or custody. The use of the word ‘Secure’ in the name ‘Secure Parking’ does not imply anything to the contrary. To the extent permitted by the ACL and subject to any other legal restriction, Secure will not be liable for any loss or damage whatsoever to any such vehicle goods or chattels alleged to have been left with Secure for safe custody howsoever such loss or damage may be caused, whether by the negligence or otherwise of Secure or by the negligence or otherwise of any person acting with or without the authority of Secure.
12.5 Secure may give you notice under this Agreement by sending a notice to you at the address you give in your Application or any other address you notify to Secure or at any other address where Secure reasonably believes you to work, stay or reside. If you give Secure an email address, Secure may also give you notices by email to that address. Secure may also give you a notice by leaving it on or in your vehicle inside or outside a Secure Car Park. Each of these ways of giving you notice may also be used to give you notice for the purposes of any legal proceedings. You should notify Secure if your contact details change.
12.6 You must pay Secure its full costs of any action to recover amounts you owe including Secure’s legal and mercantile agents’ fees on a full indemnity basis.
12.8 Secure may vary the terms of this Agreement by notice to you and such variations will take effect no less than one month after the notice is given.
12.9 Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as creating any bailment or tenancy or conferring any interest upon you by way of lease or otherwise in a Secure Car Park or Permanent Parking Space. This Agreement is personal to you and you may not transfer any of your rights or obligations in respect of it. Secure may transfer both its rights and obligations under this Agreement and you must sign any novation or other document Secure requires for that purpose.
12.10 To the extent that any provision or part of this Agreement is either invalid or unenforceable by any applicable law that provisions or part shall be ineffective and shall not invalidate or modify the remaining provisions or parts hereof, which shall continue in full force and effect.
Time shall be of the essence for the purposes of this Agreement in respect of your obligations. No time or other indulgence granted by Secure shall constitute a waiver of any of its rights herein or at law and Secure shall not be precluded from exercising any such rights against you which may have arisen in the past or which might arise in the future.
12.11 If Secure makes parking available to you after you are given this document you are taken to have accepted this document and it binds you even if Secure or you do not date or sign it.
12.12 For internal accounting purposes Secure may clear a credit balance at any time more than 12 months after you last incurred charges. Secure is not required to investigate or refund credit balances to you until requested to do so in writing.
