A. THE VOLUME PURCHASE PROGRAMME TERMS OF SALE
Apple Pty Ltd. ("iTunes") is the provider of the Volume Purchase Programme (the "VPP Service"), which (a) for the App Store and Mac App Store (collectively, "App Store"), permits approved business and educational institutions to purchase App Store Products in bulk solely for distribution to, and use by, persons employed by or affiliated with the institution, such as contractors, employees, agents, and, in the case of educational institutions, enrolled students authorised by you in accordance with the App Store Terms and Conditions, or (b) for the iBooks Store, permits either (i) approved educational institutions that are schools or school districts (excluding without limitation libraries) to purchase iBooks Store Products in bulk, solely for distribution to, and use by, persons who are either employees, faculty or teacher's aides (regardless of whether they are directly employed by the institution) at the institution or registered as students at the institution, or (ii) institutions solely for distribution to, and use by, persons employed by or affiliated with the institution, such as contractors, employees and agents, in accordance with the iBooks Store Terms and Conditions, as applicable. Such App Store Products and iBooks Store Products purchased in bulk are collectively defined as "Volume Content". The end users affiliated with your institution to which you distribute the Volume Content including without limitation accounts created as Managed Apple IDs (“MAIDs”) are collectively defined as "Authorised End Users". You agree that your use of the VPP Service and the Volume Content will be subject to these terms ("VPP Terms") as well as the terms and conditions and usage rules applicable to iTunes, the App Store and the iBooks Store (https://www.apple.com/legal/internet-services/itunes/ww/) which are hereby incorporated by reference (collectively, "Terms"). In the event of any conflict or inconsistency, the VPP Terms shall control.
VOLUME PURCHASE PROGRAMME APPLE ID
You agree that you will only use the VPP Service-specific Apple ID ("VPP Apple ID") or appropriately-privileged MAID for the purpose of purchasing, managing and distributing Volume Content from the VPP Service. You agree to provide accurate information in order to set up your VPP Apple ID or MAID, such as company name, physical address, D-U-N-S number, corporate payment information or other information as requested. For more information about the enrolment process, please visit (https://www.apple.com/au/business/vpp/) or (https://www.apple.com/au/education/volume-purchase-programme/), as applicable.
Your VPP Apple ID (as opposed to your password, which you should not disclose to anyone) will be used by content providers to verify your account for custom content distribution through the VPP Service. For more information, please visit (https://www.apple.com/au/business/vpp/) .
AUSTRALIA SALES ONLY
The Service is available to you only in Australia, its territories, and possessions, and Content Codes may only be redeemed by your Authorised End Users in Australia. App Store Volume Content Codes may only be distributed to your Authorised End Users in Australia, but App Store Volume Content may be assigned via Managed Distribution to your Authorised End Users in any country where such Volume Content is commercially available, subject to change at any time. Your use of the VPP Service for the purchase of app content is solely with the App Store in Australia, and any subsequent downloads or assignments shall not create a separate agreement or sales transaction between you and any other iTunes entity. You agree that you shall not use the VPP Service to circumvent the laws of any country or restrictions set forth by providers of the Volume Content.
PAYMENTS, TAXES, AND REFUND POLICY
You agree that you or the purchasing authority associated with your MAID will pay for all Volume Content you purchase through the VPP Service, that if you are using a MAID, you are authorised to make such purchases on behalf of the purchasing authority associated with your MAID, and that Apple may charge your payment method for any products purchased and for any additional amounts (including any taxes and late fees, as applicable) that may be accrued by or in connection with your Account. You are responsible for the timely payment of all fees and for providing Apple with a valid payment method for payment of all fees. All fees will be billed to the payment method you designate during the registration process.
Your total price will include the price of the Volume Content plus any applicable sales tax based on the bill-to address and the sales tax rate in effect at the time of purchase. We will charge tax only in states where digital goods are taxable. You understand and agree that you shall be responsible for determining and paying any taxes or levies resulting from your assignment of App Store Products to Authorised End Users in territories other than the territory in which Your VPP Apple ID is registered.
If your order is being placed on behalf of a tax-exempt organisation or individual, please contact iTunes Store Support at (https://www.apple.com/au/support/itunes/vpp/). Please be prepared to provide proof of state tax-exempt status for the state where the product is purchased.
All sales are final.
Prices for Volume Content offered via the Service may change at any time, and the Service does not provide price protection or refunds in the event of a price reduction or promotional offering.
If an App Store Product or iBooks Store Product becomes unavailable following a transaction but prior to initial download, your sole remedy is a refund. Should such refund be granted, Apple reserves the right to disable unused Content Codes and also the ability to assign Volume Content via Managed Distribution. If technical problems prevent or unreasonably delay delivery of your Volume Content, your exclusive and sole remedy is either replacement or refund of the price paid, as determined by Apple.

As iTunes may audit the purchases of customers through the VPP Service to ensure that only eligible purchases have been ordered and that all purchase conditions and usage rules have been observed, you agree to keep complete and accurate records of all uses of the Volume Content you purchased. Should an audit disclose after delivery (or should Apple otherwise discover) that you were not an eligible purchaser at the time you placed your order or that you have not observed all of the conditions applicable to your purchase, iTunes may:
• Disable your VPP Apple ID or MAID;
• If you placed your order by credit card, to charge to your credit card the difference between the amount you paid for the delivered goods and the price that iTunes charged the general public for the same goods via the VPP Service, in effect on the date that you placed your order; and
• If you paid by a means other than credit card, to (a) invoice you for the difference between the amount that you paid for the delivered goods and the price that iTunes charged the general public for the same goods via the VPP Service, payable in fifteen days from the date of the invoice, and (b), should you fail to pay the invoice when due, institute legal action against you in a court of competent jurisdiction, with the prevailing party entitled to attorneys' fees.
Should iTunes not offer the specific products that you purchased through the VPP Service, your payment method will be charged or you will be invoiced the difference between the amount you paid for the delivered goods and the price that iTunes charged the general public for the closest equivalent goods via the Service, in effect on the date that you placed your order.
iTunes shall have the right to request supplementary information and audit relevant records to confirm your compliance with the Terms.
Upon completion of your purchase of Volume Content, you will be entitled to assign the specific iBooks Store Products or App Store Products that you have purchased in the quantity selected, each of which may be assigned to an iTunes or MAID account owned or controlled by you or one of your Authorised End Users or, in the case of App Store Volume Content, to a unique device owned or controlled by you or one of your Authorised End Users. This entitlement will not expire, subject to availability of the specific products.

You may revoke the assignment and re-assign the App Store Product to another Authorised End User or device ID subject to certain programme limitations. Once you have revoked an assignment from a particular user or device, that user or device will no longer be authorised to use the App Store Product.

The Content Codes shall be provided to you electronically via email upon execution of your purchase and such Content Codes shall immediately become active for redemption by your Authorised End Users and shall not expire, subject to availability. You and/or your Authorised End Users may redeem the Content Code only in accordance with the Terms. Each Content Code for an App Store Product must be redeemed to an iTunes account owned and controlled by your organisation or by one of your Authorised End Users. Each Content Code for an iBooks Store Product must be redeemed to an account owned or controlled by the Authorised End User. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT THE OWNER OF THE REDEEMING ITUNES ACCOUNT WILL BECOME (i) FOR AN APP STORE PRODUCT, THE LICENSEE OF THAT COPY OF THE PRODUCT; AND (ii) FOR AN IBOOKS STORE PRODUCT, THE OWNER OF THAT COPY OF THE PRODUCT, AND SHALL BE ENTITLED TO ALL ASSOCIATED RIGHTS.
