Terms & Conditions
Updated August 13, 2019
Up until 13th August 2019, Crain.com.au was trading through Private Company ‘ListedForSale.com.au Pty Ltd‘, which was under management by a Private, Queensland based Trust. A new Company has been registered via the Private Trust, but will not be ‘advertised’ on this website, or any other website managed by me, Robert Crain. Our Terms & Conditions page has replaced the former Company Name with [ Need To Know Basis ] – due to problems I have had with an individual, and my desire to keep my new address private. I will write a post about this shortly.
These Terms and Conditions are adopted by our parent company, [ Need To Know Basis ], and cover all websites owned by Robert Crain, and managed by [ Need To Know Basis ].
The following are the terms and conditions (the “Terms”) under which you (a “User”) may use Crain.com.au and other co-branded web sites owned/managed by [ Need To Know Basis ] (the “Company”) and/or any other co-branded web sites (any or all of which are herein referred to as the “Web Site”).
Please read this page carefully.
By accessing and using the Web Site, you accept and agree to be bound, without modification, limitation or qualification, by these Terms. The Company may, at its sole discretion, modify or revise these Terms at any time by updating the text of this page. You are bound by any such modification or revision and should therefore visit this page periodically to review the Terms.
Specific rules, in addition to these Terms, are provided with respect to transactions conducted on or in connection with the Web Site, and other rules may be provided for the use of certain other items, areas or services provided on or in connection with the Web Site, and you agree to be bound by such rules.
YOUR USE OF THE WEB SITE CONSTITUTES YOUR AGREEMENT TO ALL TERMS, CONDITIONS, AND NOTICES CONTAINED HEREIN OR OTHERWISE POSTED ON THE WEB SITE. (THE CONTENT OF SUCH AGREEMENT, INCLUSIVE OF THE TERMS AND ALL SUCH ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS AND NOTICES, ARE TOGETHER REFERRED TO HEREIN AS THE “AGREEMENT.”)
IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT ANY OF THE PROVISIONS OF THE AGREEMENT, DO NOT USE THE WEB SITE.
Section 1. The Material on the Web Site
The contents of the Web Site, such as text, graphics, images, audio, video, data, coding, scripts, computer programs and other material (“Material” or “Materials”), are protected by copyright under the laws of Australia, as well as other countries, and are owned or controlled by the Company or by third parties that have licensed their Material to the Company.
Unauthorized use of any such Material may violate copyright, trademark, and other laws. You may not sell, prepare derivative works based on or modify the Material (including, without limitation, preparation of summaries of the Material or “thumbnails” of any images therein), or reproduce, publicly display, publicly perform, distribute, or otherwise use the Material in any way for any public or commercial purpose. The use of the Material or any portion thereof on any other web site, or in any publication, database, catalog or compilation, or in a networked computer environment for any purpose other than personal browsing of the Web Site without the express prior written permission of the Company is strictly prohibited. With respect to any copy you make of the Material within the scope of the limited personal license granted herein, you must retain therein, un-modified and un-obscured, any and all copyright and other proprietary notices contained in the original Material. Some of the Material may contain digital “watermarks” to indicate their source and ownership. You agree not to attempt to remove, deactivate, reverse engineer, modify, tamper with or obscure any such watermarks. The trademarks, logos and service marks (the “Marks”) displayed on the Web Site are owned by the Company or third parties. You are prohibited from using the Marks without the express, prior written permission of the Company or such third party. If you would like information about obtaining the Company’s permission to use the Material on your web site, please Contact Us.
The Company reserves the right to employ robot exclusion headers (if it so chooses) and similar mechanisms within the Web Site, and you agree that you and all persons and facilities under your control will honor such headers and mechanisms. Regardless of the presence or absence of any such headers or mechanisms, and without limiting the generality of any other restriction on use of the Web Site or the Material set forth in this Agreement, you will not in any event use any robot, spider, or other automatic or manual device or process for the purpose of compiling information regarding the identification, address or other attributes of any of our Users, bidders or sellers, or to recreate in original or modified form any substantial portion of the Web Site. You further agree not to use any device, software or routine to interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper functioning of the Web Site or any transactions being conducted on or in connection with the Web Sites. You agree that you will not take any action that imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our servers or systems.
If you violate any provision of the Agreement, your permission to use the Material and the Web Site automatically terminate and you must immediately destroy any copies you have made of the Material.
Section 2. Privacy; User Submissions
The Company may provide certain areas of the Web Site designated as open to public access or to our Users at large (each of which is referred to herein as a “Public Area”). Generally, any communication that you post to a Public Area is considered to be non-confidential.
By posting communications (including any graphic or multimedia content) to any Public Area, you automatically grant the Company a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, edit, translate, distribute, publicly perform, and publicly display the communication and any trademarks, names or likenesses therein alone or as part of compilations or other works in any form, media, or technology whether now known or hereafter developed, and to sub-license such rights through multiple tiers of sub-licensees. (Provisions conferring similar rights on the Company may apply under separate terms or agreements with respect to certain matter submitted other than in Public Areas; you should check the applicable agreements or terms provided by the Company in order to ascertain your rights.)
The Company does not always screen communications in advance and is not responsible for screening or monitoring all material posted by Users. As a User, you are responsible for your own communications and are responsible for the consequences of their posting.
You must not do any of the following things while accessing or using the Web Site or using the Material:
- Post or transmit any material unless you are the owner of any realestate / property, or have the permission of the owner of the Rights to post or transmit such material to the Web Site;
- Post material that otherwise violates any Rights of any third party or violates or infringes on the privacy or publicity rights of third parties;
- Post material that is obscene, defamatory, threatening, harassing, abusive, hateful, embarrassing or otherwise objectionable to another User or any other person or entity;
- Post sexually-explicit language or images;
- Post advertisements or solicitations of business;
- Post or transmit any chain letters or pyramid schemes;
- Impersonate another person or entity;
- Intentionally or unintentionally violate any applicable local, state, national or international law while using or accessing the Web Site or the Material; or
- Post or transmit any information containing a virus or other harmful component.
If notified by a User of communications that allegedly do not conform to any term of this Agreement, the Company may investigate the allegation and determine in its sole discretion whether to remove or request the removal of the communication. The Company has no liability or responsibility to Users for performance or non-performance of such activities.
The Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to expel Users and prevent their further access to the Web Site for violating this Agreement or the law.
The Company also reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as necessary or deemed desirable by the Company to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, or to edit, refuse to post or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, in the Company’s sole discretion.
THE COMPANY DOES NOT ENDORSE, SUPPORT, REPRESENT OR GUARANTEE THE TRUTHFULNESS, ACCURACY, OR RELIABILITY OF ANY COMMUNICATIONS POSTED BY OTHER USERS OR ENDORSE ANY OPINIONS EXPRESSED BY USERS. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ANY RELIANCE ON MATERIAL POSTED BY OTHER USERS WILL BE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

- (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by any registration form that you may fill out on any Web Site (such information being the “Registration Data”) and

If you provide any Registration Data that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or the Company has grounds to suspect that such Registration Data is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, the Company has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Web Site (or any portion thereof).
You may receive a password and/or account designation, or a digital signature upon completing the registration process on the Company’s Web Site. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any such password, digital signature and account, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password, digital signature or account.
You agree to:
- (a) immediately notify the Company of any unauthorized use of your password, digital signature or account or any other breach of security, and(b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session.

Section 4. Use of the Web Site
Listing Realestate / Property on the Web Site is available only to clients of the Company. This excludes in all cases minors (persons who have not reached their eighteenth birthday).
Section 5. Links to Other Sites
The Web Site may contain links to third-party web sites that are maintained by others. These links are provided solely as a convenience to you and not as an endorsement by the Company of the contents of such third-party web sites. The Company is not responsible for the content of linked third-party sites and does not make any representations regarding the content or accuracy of materials on such third-party web sites. If you decide to access linked third-party web sites, you do so at your own risk.
Section 6. Liability Disclaimers

Except as may be separately specifically provided with respect to a particular sale, the Company makes no representations about the accuracy, reliability, completeness, or timeliness of the Material or about the results to be obtained from using the Web Site and the Material.
Any use of the Web Site and the Material is at your own risk.
Advice received via the Web Site should not be relied upon for personal, legal or financial decisions and you should consult an appropriate professional, such as a Real Estate Agent, Solicitor or Conveyancer for more specific advice, if you so choose.

Realestate / Property listings on the Web Site are provided by third parties and the Company shall not be held responsible for any such Material provided by third parties.
THE COMPANY DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE WEB SITE WILL OPERATE ERROR-FREE, CONTINUOUSLY OR WITHOUT INTERRUPTION, OR THAT THE WEB SITE OR ITS SERVER ARE FREE OF COMPUTER VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL CONTENT. IF YOUR USE OF THE WEB SITE OR THE MATERIAL RESULTS IN THE NEED FOR SERVICING OR REPLACING EQUIPMENT OR DATA, THE COMPANY IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THOSE COSTS.
THE WEB SITE AND MATERIAL ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND. THE COMPANY AND ITS SUPPLIERS, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THE WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT OF PROPRIETARY OR THIRD-PARTY RIGHTS, AND THE WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE COMPANY AND ITS SUPPLIERS MAKE NO WARRANTIES ABOUT THE ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, COMPLETENESS, OR TIMELINESS OF THE MATERIAL, SERVICES, SOFTWARE TEXT, GRAPHICS, AND LINKS. SOME STATES/JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE DISCLAIMER OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMER MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER LEGAL RIGHTS WHICH VARY DEPENDING ON YOUR STATE/JURISDICTION.
Section 7. Disclaimers of Certain Damages
IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH ANY PORTION OF THE WEB SITE, OR WITH ANY PROVISION OF THE AGREEMENT, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IS TO DISCONTINUE USING THE WEB SITE. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL THE COMPANY BE LIABLE TO ANY USER OR ANY THIRD PARTY ON ACCOUNT OF THAT USER’S USE OF THE WEB SITE. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE COMPANY AND/OR ITS AGENTS AND/OR ITS EMPLOYEES BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY SUCH THIRD PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF USE, DATA OR PROFITS, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THE USE OR PERFORMANCE OF THE WEB SITE, THE DELAY OR INABILITY TO USE THE WEB SITE, THE PROVISION OF OR FAILURE TO PROVIDE SERVICES, OR FOR ANY INFORMATION, PRODUCTS, SERVICES AND RELATED GRAPHICS OBTAINED THROUGH THE WEB SITE, OR OTHERWISE ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF THE WEB SITE, WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF THE COMPANY OR ANY OF ITS AGENTS AND/OR ITS EMPLOYEES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF DAMAGES. BECAUSE SOME STATES/JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Section 8. Indemnity
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the Company, its officers, directors, employees and agents, from and against any losses, liabilities, damages, costs, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal, expert and accounting fees, incurred in connection with any claims, actions or demands alleging or resulting from your use of the Material (including Software), your breach of this Agreement, or your violation of law or of the rights of any third party.
