When you initiate a buy order, the order is not processed until your funds have reached the Trust Account of Rush Vault as defined and described in clause 6.6. Rush Vault will then exchange your funds for title to gold or silver at the Rush Bid or Offer Prices (RBOP) and your buy order will be processed as further described in clause 6.7.
6.4 You may buy gold or silver by entering the amount you agree to buy using the Services and by the payment methods as advised in our website or app from time to time. Funds received by Rush Vault from you via any of the payment methods listed on our website or apps are treated as firm gold or silver purchase orders by you and are processed subject to the provisions contained in this Agreement.
6.5 As further described in clause 10, in addition to other payment methods, you may buy gold, silver and associated services by redeeming valid, stored-value alphanumeric codes that have been made available by our Distributor (Rush Vouchers).
6.6 As with all payment services, it is up to you to ensure that you transfer the correct amount of money to Rush Vault. A payment will be deemed to be matched to an order if it is within 5% of the order value and the order is no older than seven days. In circumstances where: (a) you transfer a different amount of money to the amount required for the amount of gold or silver you have agreed to buy through the website or app, Rush Vault will treat this payment as communicating your intention to vary your offer to buy gold or silver so that the firm buy order is for the amount that you have transferred; and (b) where a buy order has been received but your payment cannot be matched to an order, it will be treated as your firm gold order for the amount that you have transferred; and (c) where you have not executed a buy order through the website or app, but you transfer money to Rush Vault, it will be treated as your firm gold order for the amount that you have transferred.
6.7 Any money received directly from you will be deposited into a bank account (Trust Account) by Rush Vault, and will be held by Rush Vault on trust for you on the following basis:
(1) your money can only be used to:

However, if you access the Services through a Distributor (as defined in clause 11), the arrangements for buying gold or silver are subject to clause 11.
6.8 You understand that you will only obtain legal title to the gold or silver that you buy once Rush Vault has bought gold or silver from, and settled on the same purchase with, its precious metal suppliers in respect of your buy order. It is only at that point in time that the Gold Transaction or Silver Transaction is completed.
6.9 Rush Vault will buy gold or silver for you when the international markets are open which is from Monday at 9am to Saturday at 7am AEST. The market is also closed weekdays between 8am and 9am AEST.

This includes the time between placing your buy order and the time that the transaction is completed under clause 6.7. To avoid doubt, gold and silver prices quoted on the website or app are indicative only and the transaction price is the price that applies at the time the order is processed and completed.

15.4 A "non-excludable condition" is a guarantee, condition or warranty which is provided under non-excludable laws, the exclusion of which from a contract would contravene any law or cause any part of these Terms to be void. Despite any other provision of these Terms, nothing in these Terms excludes, restricts or modifies a non-excludable condition. Our liability to you for a non-excludable condition is limited (at our option) to:
(1) supplying the Services again; or
(2) the payment of the cost of having the Services supplied again.
15.5 Subject to any non-excludable conditions, we exclude all warranties or conditions in relation to the Services implied by law.
15.6 TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NEITHER US, NOR OUR RELATED ENTITIES, ASSOCIATES OR ANY OTHER PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, OR DELIVERING THE SERVICES OR CONTENT (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION RUSH VAULT) WILL BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, OR GOODWILL, SERVICE INTERRUPTION, COMPUTER DAMAGE, OR SYSTEM FAILURE OR THE COST OF SUBSTITUTE SERVICES, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS, OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE FOREGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SHALL APPLY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW IN THE APPLICABLE JURISDICTION.
15.7 IN NO EVENT WILL THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF RUSH GOLD GLOBAL, NOR OUR RELATED ENTITIES, ASSOCIATES OR ANY OTHER PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, OR DELIVERING THE SERVICES OR CONTENT ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES OR CONTENT EXCEED ONE DOLLAR ($1.00). THE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN RUSH GOLD GLOBAL AND YOU.
15.8 You accept that use of the Services does not create any contract of sale with respect to gold or silver between you and us. If you enter into a Gold Transaction or a Silver Transaction, any contract of sale is between you and Rush Vault. Similarly, any agency arrangement with respect to the storage of your gold or silver is between you and Rush Vault.
15.9 If Rush Vault breaches any obligation to you, you are responsible for enforcing any rights that you may have against Rush Vault.
15.10 In no event will we (including our directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors or related companies) be liable to you for any liability, loss or cost suffered directly or indirectly whether under contract, negligence or other tort, equity or otherwise arising under or in connection with any buy or sell transactions or bailment arrangements with Rush Vault.
15.11 We hold the protections in this clause 15 on trust for the benefit of our directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors and related companies.
16.1 You agree that you are responsible for your own conduct while using the Services, and for any consequences thereof. By way of example, and not as a limitation, you agree that when using the Services and Content, you will not:
(1) violate, or encourage any conduct that would violate, any applicable law or regulation or would give rise to civil liability;
(2) trespass, or in any manner attempt to gain or gain access to any property or location where you do not have a right or permission to be;
(3) impersonate or misrepresent your affiliation with another person or entity;
(4) submit fake, falsified, misleading, or inappropriate data submissions, edits, or removals;
(5) use any unauthorised third-party software (e.g. bots, mods, hacks, and scripts) to modify or automate operation or attempt to circumvent any restriction in the Service including restrictions on your location. If you do, Rush Gold has the power to suspend or terminate your access to some or all of the game and apply additional remedies as described in the section entitled "Effects of Termination" below;
(6) transmit any viruses, worms, defects, Trojan horses, or any items of a destructive nature;
(7) use, display, mirror, or frame the Services or any individual element within the Services or other proprietary information of Rush Gold or Rush Vault, or the layout and design of any page or form contained on a page, without Rush Gold's express prior written consent;
(8) use or register anywhere in the world any domain name, social media handle, trade name, trade mark, branding, logo or other source identifier of Rush, Rush Gold or Rush Vault, or that may be confused with the same, without Rush Gold' express prior written consent;
(9) use other proprietary information, or the layout and design of any page or form contained on a page, without Rush Gold' express prior written consent;
(10) access, tamper with, or use non-public areas of the Services, Rush Gold' computer systems, or the technical delivery systems of Rush Gold' providers;
(11) attempt to probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of any Rush Gold' system or network or breach any security or authentication measures;
(12) avoid, bypass, remove, deactivate, impair, descramble, or otherwise circumvent any technological measure implemented by Rush Gold or any of Rush Gold' providers or any other third party (including another user) to protect the Services;
(13) attempt to access or search the Services or Content, or download Content from the Services through the use of any technology or means other than those provided by Rush Gold or other generally available third-party web browsers (including, without limitation, automation software, bots, spiders, crawlers, data-mining tools, or hacks, tools, agents, engines, or devices of any kind);
(14) interfere with, or attempt to interfere with, the access of any user, host, or network, including, without limitation, sending a virus, overloading, flooding, spamming, or mail-bombing the Services;
(15) take any action that imposes, or may impose, an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on the Services or Rush Gold' infrastructure;
(16) use the Services or Content, or any portion thereof, for any commercial purpose or for the benefit of any third party or in a manner not permitted by these Terms, including but not limited to (a) gathering Gold and Silver for sale outside the Gold Rush App, or (b) sell, resell, rent, or lease the App or your Rush Account;
(17) violate any applicable law or regulation; or
(18) encourage or enable any other individual to do any of the foregoing.
Although we are not obligated to monitor access to or use of the Services, we have the right to do so for the purpose of operating the Services, to ensure compliance with these Terms, and to comply with applicable law or other legal requirements. If we, at our sole discretion, consider any use of the Service to be objectionable or in violation of these Terms, we reserve the right, but are not obligated, to remove or disable any user's access to the Service. We have the right at our sole discretion to investigate violations of these Terms or conduct that affects the Services. We may also consult and cooperate with law enforcement authorities to assist in the prosecution of users who violate the law.
17.1 We may immediately suspend, terminate or cancel your Rush Account and refuse to provide the Services to you if:
(1) we are required to do so by order of a court or regulatory authority, or otherwise required by law;
(2) we suspect your Rush Account is being used for an unlawful purpose or in a fraudulent, misleading, deceptive, inappropriate or unlawful manner;
(3) we become insolvent or wind up or decide to discontinue the Service for any reason (Wind Up Event); or
(4) you are otherwise in breach of any of these Terms.
17.2 We may, at our discretion, terminate this agreement by giving you at least 14 days' written or electronic notice.
17.3 You may cancel your Rush Account at any time by selling or sending the balance of your gold and silver in your Rush Account in accordance with these Terms and by contacting us at email@example.com.
17.4 If any transaction is pending at the time your Rush Account is suspended, terminated or cancelled, the transaction will be cancelled and/or refunded as appropriate.
17.5 If your Rush Account or this Agreement is suspended, terminated or cancelled:
(1) you remain liable for any amounts owing to us and we are entitled to set off such amounts against the value of any gold and silver in your Rush Account;
(2) unless otherwise required by law and subject to clause 6.14(a) and sub-clause (3), we will at your option buy the amount you have in gold and silver at the RBOP or allow you to send the gold and silver to another Rush User;
(3) unless otherwise required by law, where your Rush Account is terminated or cancelled because of a Wind Up Event, subject to clause 6.14 we will buy the amount you have in gold and silver at the RBOP;
(4) if because of clause 6.14(a) you are unable to sell the gold and silver, and you choose not to send the gold and silver to another Rush User, at the end of 30 days you will forfeit the gold and silver in your Rush Account (i.e. where it is less than a value of AUD30.00 for each of your gold and silver holdings);
(5) with respect to your agreement with Rush Vault, you must cease to hold any gold and silver with Rush Vault within 30 days and that agreement shall automatically terminate on the earlier of the date that we buy back the gold and silver in your Rush Account, the gold and silver is forfeited or you send the gold and silver to another Rush User under this clause 17.15. If you fail to take any action within the 30 days, we shall buy back the gold and silver at applicable rates and transfer the proceeds net of any amounts owing; and
(6) to avoid doubt, at the end of this Agreement for any reason you are not entitled to receive the physical gold and silver remaining in your Rush Account, but instead it must be either sent, bought or forfeited as described above.
17.6 If a technical problem occurs, we may temporarily suspend access to your Rush Account until the problem is solved.
If you accessed or downloaded the Rush App from the Apple Store, then you agree to use the App only: (a) on a compatible and fully working Apple-branded product or device that runs iOS (Apple's proprietary operating system software); and (b) as permitted by the "Usage Rules" set forth in the Apple Store Terms of Service.
If you accessed or downloaded the Rush App from any app store or distribution platform (like the Apple App Store or Google Play Store) (each, an "App Provider"), then you acknowledge and agree that:
(a) These Terms are concluded between you and Rush Gold, and not with App Provider, and that, as between us and the App Provider, Rush Gold is solely responsible for the Rush App. App Provider has no obligation to furnish any maintenance and support services with respect to the Rush App.
(b) In the event of any failure of the Rush App to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify App Provider, and App Provider will refund the purchase price for the Rush App to you (if applicable) and, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, App Provider will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the App. Any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs, or expenses attributable to any failure of an App to conform to any warranty will be the sole responsibility of Rush Gold. App Provider is not responsible for addressing any claims you have or any claims of any third party relating to the App or your possession and use of the Rush App, including but not limited to: (i) product liability claims; (ii) any claim that the Rush App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation.
(c) In the event of any third-party claim that the App or your possession and use of the Rush App infringes that third party's intellectual property rights, Rush Gold will be solely responsible for the investigation, defence, settlement, and discharge of any such intellectual property infringement claim to the extent required by these Terms.
(d) App Provider and its subsidiaries are third-party beneficiaries of these Terms as related to your license of the Rush App, and that, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of these Terms, App Provider will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms as related to your license of the Rush App against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof.
(e) You must also comply with all applicable third-party terms of service when using the Rush App.
(f) You agree to comply with all Australian laws and regulations to ensure that neither the Rush App nor any technical data related thereto nor any direct product thereof is exported or re-exported directly or indirectly in violation of, or used for any purposes prohibited by, such laws and regulations. By using the Rush App, you represent and warrant that: (i) you are not located in a country that is subject to a Government embargo, or that has been designated as a "terrorist supporting" country; and (ii) you are not listed on any list of prohibited or restricted parties.
If you die or become incapacitated, we will take instructions in respect of your Rush Account from your legal personal representative (LPR), subject to your LPR providing us sufficient proof of their authority to act on your behalf.
20.1 These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us and supersede and extinguish all previous agreements, arrangements and understandings, whether written or oral, relating to its subject matter.
20.2 Rush Gold and you acknowledge and agree that in entering into these Terms, each of us does not rely on any undertaking, promise, assurance, statement, representation, warranty or understanding (whether in writing or not) of any person (whether party to this agreement or not) relating to the subject matter of this agreement, other than as expressly set out in these Terms.
20.3 We may assign the agreement embodied in these Terms without your prior consent. You may not assign this agreement.
20.4 No waiver of any term of this agreement will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of that term or any other term. No failure to assert any right under this agreement will constitute a waiver of that right.
20.5 If any provision of this agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of that provision will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of the agreement, which will remain in full force and effect.
20.6 Any dispute with Rush Vault or a Distributor should be directed to Rush Vault or the relevant Distributor. We are in no way responsible in relation to any such dispute.
20.7 The Terms constituting this agreement are governed by the law of New South Wales. The parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of New South Wales and the Commonwealth of Australia.
