This includes, without limitation Section 11 (Intellectual Property, Client Data and Privacy) (but not section 11.2 (License from Client to Provider)), Section 12 (Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability), Section 13 (Indemnification), Section 14.6 (Effect of Termination), Section 15 (Confidentiality) and applicable provisions of Section 16 (General).

16.3 Dispute Resolution.

(b) Either party may initiate the Dispute Resolution Process by sending a notice of a Dispute (a “Dispute Notice”) to the other party. Upon delivery of a Dispute Notice to either party, each party shall appoint a knowledgeable, responsible, non-lawyer, management representative to meet and negotiate in good faith with the representative of the other party in order to resolve the Dispute.

(c) All Disputes that are not resolved within thirty (30) days following delivery of a Dispute Notice shall be arbitrated and finally resolved, with no right of appeal, even on questions of law, pursuant to the National Arbitration Rules of the ADR Institute of Canada, Inc. The place of arbitration shall be Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The language of the arbitration shall be English.

(d) Notwithstanding anything contained in the Agreement to the contrary, either party shall be entitled to seek injunctive or other equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction whenever the facts or circumstances would permit a party to seek such relief.

16.4 Relationship. The relationship between the Client and the Provider will at all times be one of independent contractor and nothing herein shall be construed as implying an employment, partnership, or joint venture relationship. The Provider is not an employee of the Client and is not entitled to any benefits that the Client may provide to its employees. Nothing herein shall be construed as empowering either party to act as a representative or agent of the other party. Neither party shall have the authority to enter into any contract, nor to assume any liability, on behalf of the other party, nor to bind or commit the other party in any manner, except as expressly provided in this Agreement.

16.5 Force Majeure. Except as expressly provided otherwise in this Agreement, dates and times by which the Client or the Provider is required to perform under this Agreement, the Order Form, or a Schedule (except for any payment obligation) will be postponed automatically to the extent and for the period of time that the Client or the Provider, as the case may be, is prevented by causes outside of its reasonable control from meeting such dates and times by reason of any cause beyond its reasonable control (provided that a lack of financial resources shall not constitute an event beyond the reasonable control of a party). The following events are deemed to be outside of a party’s reasonable control: acts of God, acts of government, acts of war, civil or military unrest, acts of public enemies, epidemics, riots, fire, unavailability of communications or electrical power service provided by third parties, governmental regulations superimposed after the fact and earthquakes, explosions, floods or other disasters provided that such causes could not have been reasonably foreseen and the risk and/or consequences of such causes mitigated on a commercially reasonable basis. The parties agree that an event shall not be considered to beyond reasonable control if a reasonable businessperson applying due diligence in the same or similar circumstances under the same or similar obligations as the provisions of the Order Form or Schedule would have put in place contingency plans to either materially mitigate or negate the effects of such event. A party seeking to rely on this Section must (i) notify the other party immediately and in detail of the anticipated or actual commencement of and the cause of postponement; (ii) notify the other party promptly of any material changes in the circumstances which resulted in the postponement including when the reason for the postponement is at an end; and (iii) use diligent efforts to avoid or remove such cause of non-performance and to minimize the consequences thereof, including utilizing all resources reasonably required in the circumstances including without limitation obtaining supplies or services from other resources if they are reasonably available.

16.6 Non-Solicitation. During the Term and for a period of one (1) year following termination of this Agreement for any reason, neither party may, directly or indirectly, (a) solicit for employment any employee or independent contractor of the other party who was materially involved in the performance of this Agreement; or (b) induce or attempt to induce any employee or independent contractor of the other party who was materially involved in the performance of this Agreement to leave his or her employ or contract, as applicable, with such other party. The foregoing will not prevent either party from hiring any employee or independent contractor who responds to a job posting or advertisement that is not specifically targeted at such employee or independent contractor.

16.7 Currency. Unless otherwise specified in the Order Form, all references to amounts of money in this Agreement refer to U.S. dollars (USD) currency.

16.8 Notices. Notices that we give to you (other than notice of amendment of this Agreement), may be provided in any of the following ways. First, we may email the Administrator(s) at the contact information provided in the Order Form or any registration data. Second, we may post a notice on the Website.

16.10 Severability. Any provision of this Agreement, which is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, will, as to that jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability and will be severed from the balance of this Agreement, all without affecting the remaining provisions of this Agreement or affecting the validity or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction.

16.11 Entire Agreement. This Agreement, the Order Form and the Schedules constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes all previous negotiations, proposals, commitments, writings and understandings of any nature whatsoever.

16.12 Waiver. No term or provision of this Agreement is deemed waived and no breach excused, unless the waiver or consent is in writing and signed by the party claiming to have waived or consented. Any consent by any party to, or waiver of, a breach by the other, whether expressed or implied, does not constitute a consent to, waiver of, or excuse for, any other different or subsequent breach.

16.13 Fully Negotiated Agreement. The Client and the Provider acknowledge and agree that all of the provisions of this Agreement have been fully negotiated, that neither of them shall be deemed the drafter of this Agreement and that, in construing this Agreement in case of any claim that any provision hereof may be ambiguous, no such provision shall be construed in favour of one party on the ground that such provision was drafted by the other party.

16.14 Language. The parties have required that this Agreement and all deeds, documents and notices relating to this Agreement be drawn up in the English language. Les parties aux présentes ont exigé que le présent contrat et tous autres contrats, documents ou avis afférents aux présentes soient rédigés en langue anglaise.
