If the Customer is a Consumer and Pointer supplies PDH Services to the Customer, Pointer acknowledges that the Customer may have certain rights under the Australian Consumer Law in respect of theConsumer Guarantees as they apply to the PDH Services supplied by Pointer and nothing in this Agreement should be interpreted as attempting to exclude, restrict or modify the application of any such rights.

(a) the supplying of the relevant services again; or
(b) the payment of the cost of having the relevant services supplied again.

If the amount for GST recovered by a party under this clause 21 differs from the amount of GST payable by the party or its representative member on the supply, the amount of the difference must be paid to or refunded by the party (as the case requires).
If a party is required under this Agreement to reimburse or indemnify another party for any amount incurred by the other party, the amount to be reimbursed or paid by the party will be the amount incurred reduced by an amount equal to any input tax credit that the other party or its representative member is entitled to claim for the amount incurred and increased by the amount of any GST payable in respect of the reimbursement or payment.
