We do not assume liability for accidents, delays, injuries, harm, loss, damage, death, lost profits, personal or business interruptions, misapplication of information, physical or mental disease, condition or issue, or otherwise, due to any act or default of anyone or any business, whether owners, staff, agents, joint venture partners, contractors, vendors, affiliates or otherwise, affiliated with us. We do not assume liability for any owners, staff, agents, joint venture partners, contractors, vendors or otherwise who is engaged in producing or rendering our Services. In the event that you use our Services or any other information provided by us or affiliated with us, to the extent that is legally permissible under applicable law, we assume no responsibility.
We expressly disclaim any liability for unauthorized access to or use of our Site or any Confidential Information and/or Personal Information disclosed as a result of unauthorized access. You agree to hold us harmless for any damages that may result therefrom.
Release of Claims.
In no event will we be liable to any party for any type of direct, indirect, special, incidental, equitable or consequential damages for any use of or reliance on our Services, and you hereby release us from any and all such claims; including, without limitation, those related to lost profits, personal or business interruptions, personal injuries, accidents, misapplication of information, or any other loss, physical or mental disease, condition or issue, or otherwise, even if we are expressly advised of the possibility of such damages or difficulties, to the fullest extent allowable by applicable law.
You are agreeing that you will not use our Site or Services in any way that causes or is likely to cause the Site or Services or access to them either to be interrupted, damaged, or impaired in any way. You understand that you are solely responsible for all electronic communications and content sent from your computer to us.
You must use the Site and Services for lawful purposes only.
Confidentiality; Use of Information
Should you opt-in to receive and/or have access to our free resources, webinars or case studies, we will use the information you provide on the Site to send you the requested resources and materials as well as to regularly provide industry tips and offers to grow your business. You can revoke permission at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in the footer of any email you receive from us, or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information shared on the Site shall be kept confidential but shall not be the subject of any professional privileges. We will share your information with the relevant authorities if there is a compelling reason for doing so. For example, if it is required by law.
You have the right to terminate your use of our Services at any time by contacting us IN WRITING, including by e-mail.
We reserve the right in our sole discretion to refuse or terminate your access to our Services, in full or in part, at any time, without notice, by sending you an email to the email address you provided to us.
In the event of cancellation or termination by either of us, you will have 24 hours to pay any and all remaining payments or balances that are owed to us.
Upon termination by either of us, we reserve the right to immediately refuse or terminate your access to any aspect of our Services, including but not limited to our website, private forum, email communications, Zoom calls, or conference calls, recordings of any such communications, or any other method of communications related to our Services at any time without notice and in our sole discretion.
It is hoped that should we ever have any differences, we will be able to work them out amicably through email correspondence and telephone conference calls. However, should we be unable to seek resolution within a reasonable time as determined in our sole discretion, you agree now that the only method of legal dispute resolution that will be used is binding arbitration before a single arbitrator who practices in the province of Ontario, selected jointly by us. Before seeking arbitration, you must contact us in writing, and include all of your reasons for dissatisfaction with your Services. You understand and agree now that the only remedy that can be awarded to you through arbitration is full refund of your payment made to date. No other actions or financial awards of consequential damages, punitive or aggravated damages, or any other type of damages, may be granted to you. We both agree now that the decision of the arbitrator is final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction in Ontario.
By using our Services, you are agreeing to a modification of the statute of limitations such that any arbitration must be begun within one (1) year of the date of your email referenced above or you waive the right to seek dispute resolution by arbitration or to take any other legal action against us.
You also agree that should arbitration take place, it will be held in the City of Toronto, in the Province of Ontario, Canada, as this is where our business is located, and you further agree that the winning party shall be entitled to all reasonable lawyer’s fees and all costs necessary to enforce the decision of the arbitrator.
In the event of a dispute between us, you agree to not engage in any conduct or communications, whether in public or in private until the resolution of the dispute including but not limited to on social media, either directly or indirectly, designed to disparage us, our company, or any of our Services. Where requested by law or arbitration, of course, you are not prohibited from sharing your thoughts and opinions as part of the legal process.
If any provisions in the Agreement are construed by a court of competent jurisdiction to be void or unenforceable for any reason, it shall be deemed to be severed from the Agreement and shall not affect the validity or enforceability of all other provisions in the Agreement, which shall remain in full force.
Time shall be of the essence in all respects of the Agreement.
