Goody, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to alter the Offer Period as set out in the Offer Schedule, provided that such Offer Period must occur prior to the relevant Offer Expiry Date. The parties acknowledge that there is no commitment by either of them to a minimum number of Offers to be made available by the Merchant.
11.3 The parties acknowledge that, at all times, Goody will act as agent for the Merchant in promoting Offers, and the Merchant will be solely responsible for carrying out its obligations under any Offer that is redeemed by a Member in accordance with the relevant Offer Terms and Conditions. Goody will not be responsible for any warranty claims and any obligations of the Merchant under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993, and such warranty claims and obligations are the sole responsibility of the Merchant.
11.4 The Merchant acknowledges that Goody may act as agent for any other merchant and may promote and facilitate that other merchant’s offers, including any offers that are the same as or similar to the Offers given by the Merchant.
11.5 If a Member presents a valid Offer to the Merchant, the Merchant will perform its obligations under the Offer including promptly and efficiently:
- providing the relevant goods and/or services to the Member in accordance with this Agreement and the Offer Terms and Conditions;

- dealing with any complaint or dispute relating to a redeemed Offer raised by a Member. Without limiting the foregoing, Goody will as soon as reasonably practicable inform the Merchant in writing of any complaint or dispute made by a Member to Goody relating to a redeemed Offer; and

11.6 In addition to the obligations set out in clause 11.5, where goods are being delivered, or services are being performed, by the Merchant under an Offer, the Merchant will:
- be responsible for the packaging, logistics and the distribution of those goods to the relevant Member; and
- provide Goody with proactive and regular updates on expected delivery dates of the goods or services upon request.
11.7 The Merchant will immediately notify Goody if at any time it considers it will not be able to carry out its obligations under an Offer and the reason for such non-performance. For the avoidance of doubt, any notice given under this clause will not relieve the Merchant of the performance of its obligations under this Agreement. If Goody receives notice under this clause or otherwise reasonably considers that the Merchant may not be able to carry out its obligations under a (whether or not that Offer has been advertised), then Goody may give notice to the Merchant of its intention to immediately withdraw the Merchant’s Offer(s) if the Merchant cannot reasonably show to Goody (within a reasonable time specified by Goody) that it is able to carry out such obligations.

11.9 In respect of any Offer, Goody and the Merchant agree that, in accordance with section 5(11G) of the Goods and Services Tax Act 1985, the time of supply for GST purposes will occur on the redemption of the Offer (i.e. when the Member uses the Offer to obtain the goods and/or services from the Merchant) instead of on the issue of the Offers by Goody.

Goody is not responsible for collecting, reporting or remittance of any GST in relation to sales made on behalf of the Merchant.
11.10 The Merchant warrants that where it makes, or has made, an offer for the relevant goods and/or services (whether in print, online, in store or otherwise) that is similar to, or better than, an Offer, it will notify Goody and the relevant Offer will be deemed to be amended to match that other offer.
11.11 Where the Merchant has entered into an offer agreement with Goody, that agreement shall come to an end on the later of the date of this Agreement or the date the last Offer Schedule entered into under that agreement is completed. Any Offer Schedule entered into after the date of this Agreement will be entered into on and subject to the terms of this Agreement.
