Subject:                                     Third line forcing notification N100032 lodged by Byte in Bite Pty Ltd [DLM=For-Official-Use-Only]

 

Security Classification:       For Official Use Only

 

Dear Mr Zheng

I refer to the third line forcing notification lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) by Byte in Bite Pty Ltd on 30 October 2017.   It has been allocated the registration number N100032.  The notification and this email will be placed on the ACCC’s public register which is available on the ACCC’s website.

The protection from legal action provided by the notification commences automatically 14 days after the lodgement date, unless the ACCC objects.

On the basis of the information that you have provided, and that the parties will disclose all relevant terms and conditions to customers, the ACCC does not object to the notification at this time.

If at any time circumstances change, or the ACCC receives further information, such that it is satisfied that the public benefits from the third line forcing conduct do not outweigh the public detriments, the ACCC may remove the protection provided by the notification.

 

I note in your Form G that from 20 October 2017 current and future customers of Byte in Bite Pty Ltd will be able to access free or discounted shipping provided they are members of Australia Post’s DeliveryClub.  Please be aware that the protection from legal action provided by your notification will not commence until 13 November 2017.

 

Please contact Natalie Morton on (02) 6243 3003 or by email to adjudication@accc.gov.au if you have any questions about this matter.

 

Regards
