With respect to any dispute regarding the Website, your rights and obligations and all actions contemplated by these Terms and Conditions shall be governed by the laws of Ontario, as if the Terms and Conditions were a contract wholly entered into and wholly performed within Ontario. Any dispute relating in any way to your visit to the Website shall be submitted to confidential arbitration, except that, to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate our intellectual property rights, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in Ontario, and you consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts. Arbitration under this agreement shall be conducted in accordance with the Arbitrations Act, 1991 (Ontario), as amended, subject to the following modifications:
the arbitration will be conducted in London, Ontario by a single arbitrator with suitable expertise to be agreed upon by the Parties within ten (10) Business Days of the Notice Date, failing which either Party may request a judge of the Ontario Court of Justice (General Division) to appoint the arbitrator;
the arbitrator shall establish the procedural rules for the arbitration within fourteen (14) Business Days of his or her appointment.

The arbitrator’s award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under this Agreement shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to this Agreement, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise.

We may, with or without prior notice, terminate any of the rights granted by these Terms and Conditions. You shall comply immediately with any termination or other notice, including, as applicable, by ceasing all use of the Website.
Nothing contained in these Terms and Conditions shall be construed as creating any agency, partnership, or other form of joint enterprise between us. Our failure to require your performance of any provision hereof shall not affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter, nor shall our waiver of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself. In the event that any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall be unenforceable or invalid under any applicable law or be so held by any applicable court decision, such unenforceability or invalidity shall not render these Terms and Conditions unenforceable or invalid as a whole. We will amend or replace such provision with one that is valid and enforceable and which achieves, to the extent possible, our original objectives and intent as reflected in the original provision.
