Terms of Service

Effective as of 1 January 2019

These are the terms of use (“Terms of Use”) for your use of services or features on the sites owned, developed, controlled and managed by the Tamarua Beauty Academy (“TBA”), including www.melbournemakeup-courses.com.au (the “Site”). We may add additional sites from time to time as we expand our beauty offerings and these Terms of Use will govern those new sites when added. You may be accessing our Sites from a computer or mobile phone device (through an iPhone application, for example) and these Terms of Use govern your use of our Sites and your conduct, regardless of the means of access.

We also like to interact with you on third party sites where we post content or invite your feedback, such as http:// www.facebook.com/tamaruabeautyacademy and http://www.instagram.com/tamaruabeautyacademy  (“Third Party Sites”). Our Terms of Use and other areas of our Sites provide guidelines (“Guidelines”) and rules and regulations (“Rules”) including services that involve Third Party Sites, but TBA does not control those Third Party Sites, and these Terms of Use, our Guidelines and our Rules do not apply to companies that TBA does not own or control, or to the actions of people that TBA does not employ or manage. You should always check the terms of use posted on Third Party Sites. By using the Sites, you agree to these Terms of Use, our Privacy Policy https://melbournemakeup-courses.com.au/privacy-policy and our Guidelines and Rules.

If you do not agree with any of these, you should not use our Sites. TBA reserves the right to change or modify any of the terms and conditions contained in the Terms of Use, Guidelines and Rules from time to time at any time by giving you notice via our Sites. Any changes or modifications to these Terms of Use, Guidelines or Rules will be posted on the Sites and will take effect 14 days after such posting. The Terms of Use that will apply to any orders placed are the Terms of Use that applied at the time you placed the order. Your continued use of the Sites following posting of any changes or modifications constitutes your acceptance of such changes or modifications and if you do not agree with these changes or modifications, you must immediately cease using the Sites. For this reason, you should frequently review these Terms of Use, our Guidelines and Rules and any other applicable policies, including their dates, to understand the terms and conditions that apply to your use of the Sites.
