13.   GENERAL

These Terms, the Privacy Policy and all other notices, policies and statements contained on this Website (all as may be amended by Company from time to time without prior notice) constitute the entire agreement between Company and you. These Terms cannot be modified except as described herein. Anything in this Website inconsistent with these Terms is superseded by these Terms. No waiver of any of these Terms will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such Term or any other Term. If in any jurisdiction, any of these Terms are held to be unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such Terms will be restricted or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary and the remaining Terms will otherwise remain in full force and effect. The headings used in these Terms are included for convenience only and will not limit or otherwise affect these Terms.

The relationship between Company and you will be that of independent contractors, and neither of us nor any of our respective officers, agents or employees will be held or construed to be partners, joint ventures, fiduciaries, employees or agents of the other as a result of these Terms or this Website.

These Terms and the subject matter of these Terms and all related matters will be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the Province of British Columbia, Canada and the laws of Canada applicable in British Columbia, excluding any laws that implement the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods or the United States Uniform Commercial Code, and excluding any rules of private international law or the conflict of laws that would lead to the application of any other laws. Subject to the following paragraph, you submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the Province of British Columbia.

To the extent permitted by applicable law, unless Company agrees otherwise, any claim, dispute or controversy, whether in contract or tort, pursuant to statute or regulation, or otherwise, and whether pre-existing, present or future, arising out of or relating to the Services, this Website, these Terms or the Privacy Policy, will be determined by final and binding arbitration to the exclusion of the courts. Where applicable, arbitration will be conducted in the province in which you reside, on a simplified and expedited basis by one arbitrator pursuant to the current laws and rules relating to commercial arbitration in the province or jurisdiction in which you reside on the date of the notice. The foregoing does not, however, preclude Company from seeking injunctive relief in other jurisdictions when necessary to protect its interests. You agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a Claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you waive any right to a jury trial.

These Terms have been drawn up in the English language at the express request of the parties. Les présentes modalités ont été rédigées en anglais à la demande expresse des parties.

The failure of us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

These Terms of Service and any policies or operating rules posted by us on this site or in respect to The Service constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between you and us and govern your use of the Service, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications and proposals, whether oral or written, between you and us (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms of Service).

Any ambiguities in the interpretation of these Terms of Service shall not be construed against the drafting party.
