under the Act
All provisions survive termination or expiration of this agreement except those
requiring performance only during the term of the agreement.
If any amounts are to be paid to Microsoft, the amounts owed are exclusive of any
taxes unless otherwise specified on the invoice as tax inclusive. Institution shall pay all value
added, goods and services, sales, gross receipts, or other transaction taxes, fees, charges,
or surcharges, or any regulatory cost recovery surcharges or similar amounts that are owed
under this agreement and that Microsoft is permitted to collect from Institution under
applicable law. Institution shall be responsible for any applicable stamp taxes and for all
other taxes that it is legally obligated to pay, including any taxes that arise on the distribution
or provision of Products by Institution to the Organization. Microsoft shall be responsible for
payment of all taxes based upon its net income, gross receipts taxes imposed in lieu of taxes
on income or profits, or taxes on Microsoft’s property ownership.
If any taxes are required to be withheld on payments made to Microsoft, Institution may
deduct such taxes from the amount owed and pay them to the appropriate taxing authority;
provided, however, that, Institution promptly secures and delivers to Microsoft an official
receipt for those withholdings and other documents Microsoft reasonably requests to claim a
foreign tax credit or refund. Institution must ensure that any taxes withheld are minimized to
the extent possible under applicable law.
n. Management and reporting.
Institution must provide and manage account details (e.g.,
contacts, orders, Licenses, software downloads) on Microsoft’s Volume Licensing Service
Center web site (or its successor site) at https://www.microsoft.com/licensing/servicecenter.

o. Order of precedence
. In the case of a conflict between any documents in this agreement
that is not expressly resolved in the documents, their terms will control in the following order,
from highest to lowest priority: (1) this Campus and School Agreement, (2) any Enrollment, (3)
the Product Terms, (4) the Online Services Terms, (5) orders submitted under this agreement,
and (6) any other documents in this agreement. Terms in an amendment control over the
amended document and any prior amendments, concerning the same subject matter.
For Institutions located in any of the countries cited below, the following country-specific
provisions replace or supplement the equivalent provisions as noted:
Supplement Terms and Conditions, Section 10, “Warranties,” with the following new
d. Consumer remedies.
Notwithstanding anything in this agreement, consumers may have the
benefit of certain rights or remedies pursuant to the Competition and Consumer Act 2010
(Cth) and similar state and territory laws in Australia in respect of which liability may not be
excluded. If so, then to the maximum extent permitted by law, such liability is limited, at
Microsoft’s option, in the case of goods to either (1) replacement of the goods or (2)
correction of defects in the goods. Australian law requires us to notify consumer purchasers
of Microsoft goods that: “Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the
Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and
compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to
have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the
failure does not amount to a major failure.”
under the Act
Supplement Terms and Conditions, Section 12, “Limitation of liability,” with the following
e. Statutory liability.
Where Microsoft is a supplier (as that term is defined in the Consumer
Guarantees Act 1993 (“CGA”) of the Products, Institution confirms that the Products
provided by Microsoft under this agreement are acquired for the purposes of a business
(as that term is defined in the CGA) and Institution agrees that the CGA does not apply to
the Products supplied by Microsoft.
Nothing in this agreement is intended to limit the rights of a “consumer”
under the CGA where that Act applies, except to the extent permitted by that Act, and the
terms of this agreement are to be modified to the extent necessary to give effect to this
