12. Applicable Law and Venue

The Site is controlled by Mypafway and operated by it from its offices in Toronto, Ontario. You and Mypafway both benefit from establishing a predictable legal environment in regard to the Site. Therefore, you and Mypafway explicitly agree that all disputes, claims or other matters arising from or relating to your use of the Site will be governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to these Terms.

Except where prohibited by applicable law, any claim, dispute or controversy (whether in contract or tort, pursuant to statute or regulation, or otherwise, and whether preexisting, present or future) arising out of or relating to (a) these Terms; (b) the Site or Content; (c) oral or written statements, advertisements or promotions relating to these Terms or to the Site; or (d) the relationships that result from these Terms or the Site or Content (collectively, a “Claim”) will be referred to and determined by a sole arbitrator (to the exclusion of the courts). Except where prohibited by applicable law, you waive any right you may have to commence or participate in any class action against Mypafway related to any Claim and, where applicable, you also agree to opt out of any class proceedings against Mypafway. If you have a Claim, you should give written notice to arbitrate at the address specified below. If we have a Claim, we will give you notice to arbitrate at your address provided in your Registration Data. Arbitration will be conducted by one arbitrator pursuant to the commercial arbitration laws and rules in effect on the date of the notice in the Province of Ontario.

To the extent arbitration as described in the immediately preceding paragraph is prohibited by applicable law, you agree that all Claims will be heard and resolved in a court of competent subject matter jurisdiction located in Toronto, Ontario. You consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts over you, stipulate to the fairness and convenience of proceeding in such courts, and covenant not to assert any objection to proceeding in such courts.

If you choose to access the Site from locations other than Ontario, you will be responsible for compliance with all local laws of such other jurisdiction and you agree to indemnify Mypafway and the other Released Parties for your failure to comply with any such laws.

13. Termination/Modification of License and Site Offerings

Notwithstanding any provision of these Terms, Mypafway reserves the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, without any notice or liability to you, to (a) terminate your license to use the Site, or any portion thereof; (b) block or prevent your future access to and use of all or any portion of the Site or Content; (c) change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the Site or Content; and (d) impose limits on the Site or Content.

14. Termination of Agreement

You and Mypafway may terminate these Terms and your use of the Site at any time. When your Mypafway account is terminated, any images you have uploaded to the Site may remain on the Site. We may retain an archival copy of your User Content after termination, and you therefore hereby grant us a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable license to maintain such archival copy for our internal business purposes.

If these Terms expire or terminate for any reason, Sections 4, 9, 10, 12, 14 and 15, and any representation or warranty you make in these Terms, shall also survive indefinitely.

15. Miscellaneous

If any provision of these Terms shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. Mypafway may assign any or all of its rights hereunder to any party without your consent. You are not permitted to assign any of your rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of Mypafway, and any such attempted assignment will be void and unenforceable. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Mypafway regarding your use of the Site, and supercede all prior or contemporaneous communications whether electronic, oral or written between you and Mypafway regarding your use of the Site. The parties confirm that it is their wish that these Terms, as well as any other documents relating to this Terms, including notices, have been and shall be drawn up in the English language only. Les parties reconnaissent avoir convenue que la présente convention ainsi que tous documents, avis et procédures judiciaires qui pourront être exécutés, donnés ou intentées à la suite des présentes ou ayant un rapport, direct ou indirect, avec la présente convention soient rédigée en anglais.
