- ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND WAIVER OF CERTAIN RIGHTS
You and the Providers agree that any dispute or claim arising out of or relating in any way to your use of the Services, these Terms, the Additional Terms or your receipt of any communications from The Providers will be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify, remain in such court and advance solely on an individual basis. “Disputes” or “claims” under this provision shall include, but are not limited to, any dispute, claim or controversy, whether based on past, present, or future events, arising out of or relating to: the Terms, the Additional Terms and prior versions thereof (including the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof), the Services, any other goods or services made available through the Services, your relationship with the Providers, the threatened or actual suspension, deactivation or termination of your account with the Providers, payments made by you or any payments made or allegedly owed to you, any promotions or offers made by the Providers, any communications you receive from the Providers, any claims for fraud, defamation, emotional distress, breach of any express or implied contract or covenant, claims arising under federal or provincial consumer protection laws, claims arising under antitrust laws, and all other federal and provincial statutory and common law claims. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, if you are an employee of the Providers, this Arbitration Agreement will not apply to any claims or disputes arising out of your employment relationship with the Providers and any such claims and disputes may be governed by separate agreements.
Arbitration Rules and Forum. To begin an arbitration proceeding, the initiating party must notify the other party in writing via certified mail, return receipt requested, or hand delivery within the applicable statute of limitations period. This demand for arbitration must include (1) the name and address of the party seeking arbitration, (2) a statement of the legal and factual basis of the claim, and (3) a description of the remedy sought. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator — not a court — shall have exclusive authority to (i) determine the scope and enforceability of these Terms (including this Arbitration Agreement), (ii) resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms (including this Arbitration Agreement), including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable, and (iii) resolve any disputes or controversies regarding or arising out of the applicability of these Terms and/or any other concurrent agreement, to any particular claim or dispute, consistent with Canadian Arbitration rules. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and The Providers. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and these Terms (including this Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and the Providers.
Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND THE PROVIDERS HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE OR COLLECTIVE BASIS; ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE PARTY CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER PARTY. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a given claim for relief, then the claim must be severed from the arbitration and brought into court for adjudication before a judge, not a jury. All other claims shall be arbitrated.
30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of these Terms that mandate arbitration by e-mailing a written notice of your decision to opt out to: [[email protected]], within 30 days after first becoming subject to a version of these Terms containing an arbitration provision. Your notice must include your name and address, your username (if any), the email address you used to set up your account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of arbitration, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of arbitration has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with the Providers.
Survival of Arbitration Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with the Providers.
Modification. Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, we agree that if The Providers makes any future material change to this Arbitration Agreement, you may reject that change within thirty (30) days of such change becoming effective by emailing The Providers a notice of your rejection at the following address at [[email protected]]. Your rejection of any such changes shall not affect the enforceability of any version of this Arbitration Agreement, or of any other agreement to arbitrate, that you previously entered into with The Providers.
- UPDATES TO THE TERMS
We reserve the right to modify or remove all or any part of these Terms, the Sites or any products or services offered on the Sites, at any time and in our absolute sole discretion.
- ENTIRE AGREEMENT
- GOVERNING LAW, DISPUTE RESOLUTION, FORUM FOR LEGAL DISPUTES
These Terms and any dispute arising out of or related to it or the Sites will be governed in all respects by the laws of the Province of British Columbia as they apply to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within British Columbia between British Columbia residents, without regard to conflict of law provisions.
You agree to attempt to resolve any disputes arising under the Terms by mutual agreement. Failure to attempt to mutually resolve any dispute under this agreement will constitute a breach of the Terms.
You agree that any claim or dispute you may have against us must be resolved exclusively by a court located in Vancouver, British Columbia. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Vancouver, British Columbia for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.
- WAIVER AND SEVERABILITY
Any failure by us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any portion of these Terms or any other North policy is found illegal or unenforceable, in whole or in part by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective solely to the extent of such determination of invalidity or unenforceability without affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other manner or jurisdiction and without affecting the remaining provisions of the Terms, which shall continue to be in full force and effect.
- STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Sites or these Terms must be filed within one year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
Both parties agree that there will be no favouritism in construction of the Terms, and that any ambiguity in the Terms will be resolved without preferential regard to one party or the other.
The authentic language of the Agreement is English and any translations provided are for convenience only. If there is any conflict between the English language version of this Agreement and any translation, then the English language version will prevail. You agree we may communicate with you in English during the term of this Agreement.
No failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, any right, remedy, power or privilege arising from these Terms operates, or may be construed, as a waiver thereof. No single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power or privilege hereunder precludes any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power or privilege.
If any term or provision of these Terms is invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of these Terms or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction.
All questions, feedback, comments, requests, and other communications relating to these Terms, should be directed to [email protected]
