GOVERNING LAW AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION
These Terms, your access to and use of the Service, and all related matters are governed solely by the laws of British Columbia, Canada and applicable federal laws of Canada. Any dispute between you and SCANOV or any other person arising from, connected with or relating to the Service, these Terms, or any related matters (collectively "Disputes") will be resolved solely in accordance with the Terms of this Article.
If there is any dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms, then the parties will use reasonable and good faith efforts to resolve such dispute, first by direct negotiation and then, if that is not successful, by mediation with a neutral third party mediator acceptable to both parties. Each party will bear its own costs and expenses in connection with any mediation and all costs and expenses of the mediator will be shared equally by the parties.
Any Dispute that is not settled by mediation or agreement between the parties within a reasonable time shall be settled exclusively by binding arbitration by a single arbitrator.
The location of the arbitration will be Vancouver, Canada. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Act (British Columbia). The arbitrator will be selected and the arbitration conducted in accordance with the British Columbia International Arbitration Rules ("Rules") and conducted by the British Columbia International Commercial Arbitration Centre, except that the provisions of these Terms will prevail over the Rules. The parties will share equally in the fees and expenses of the arbitrator and the cost of the facilities used for the arbitration hearing, but will otherwise each bear their respective costs incurred in connection with the arbitration. Depositions will not be allowed, but information may be exchanged by other means. The parties will use their best efforts to ensure that an arbitrator is selected promptly and that the arbitration hearing is conducted no later than 3 months after the arbitrator is selected. The arbitrator must decide the dispute in accordance with the substantive law of British Columbia. This requirement does not, however, mean that the award is reviewable by a court for errors of law or fact. Following the arbitration hearing, the arbitrator will issue an award and a separate written decision which summarizes the reasoning behind the award and the legal basis for the award.The arbitrator will not:
(i) Award damages excluded by the terms of these Terms
(ii) Award damages in excess of the amount, if any, limited by the terms of these Terms; or
(iii) Require one party to pay another party's costs, fees, attorney's fees or expenses.
The award of the arbitrator will be final and binding on each party. Judgement upon the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
The dispute resolution procedures described in this Article are the sole and exclusive procedures for the resolution of any disputes which arise out of or are related to these Terms, except that a party may seek preliminary or temporary injunctive relief from a court if, in that party's sole judgment, such action is necessary to avoid irreparable harm or to preserve the status quo. If a party seeks judicial injunctive relief as described in this Article, then the parties will continue to participate in good faith in the dispute resolution procedures described in this Article. The parties agree that no court which a party petitions to grant the type of preliminary or temporary injunctive relief described in this Article may award damages or resolve the dispute.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, SCANOV is not precluded at any time from seeking injunction relief against the other Party for intellectual property infringement in British Columbia or in the jurisdiction where the other Party is domiciled or resident or where the infringement is taking place.
The parties attorn to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of British Columbia for the purpose of any court application contemplated by this Article.
If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, then the provision will be deemed to be severed from these Terms and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect. These Terms enure to the benefit of and are binding upon each of SCANOV and its successors, assigns and related persons, and you and your heirs, executors, administrators, successors, permitted assigns and personal representatives. If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the Terms without affecting the rest of the Terms. The remaining provisions of the Terms will continue to be valid and enforceable. You may not assign these Terms or the rights and obligations under these Terms. SCANOV may assign these Terms and its rights and obligations under these Terms without your consent. No consent or waiver by any party to or of any breach or default by any other party in its performance of its obligations under these Terms will be: (a) deemed or construed to be a consent to or waiver of a continuing breach or default or any other breach or default of those or any other obligations of that party; or (b) effective unless in writing and signed by all parties. These Terms and any other related terms included on this Service constitute the whole legal agreement between you and SCANOV and govern your use of the Service (but excluding any service which SCANOV may provide to you under a separate agreement), and completely replace any prior agreements between you and SCANOV in relation to the Service. You agree that SCANOV may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to the Terms, by email, regular mail, or postings on the Service.
The parties have expressly requested and required that these Terms and all other related documents be drawn up in the English language. Les parties conviennent et exigent expressément que ce Contrat et tous les documents qui s'y rapportent soient rédigés en anglais.
Where SCANOV has provided you with a translation of the English language version of these Terms, then you agree that the translation is provided for your convenience only and that the English language versions of these Terms will govern your relationship with SCANOV. If there is any contradiction between what the English language version of these Terms says and what a translation says, then the English language version shall take precedence.
Any rights not expressly granted by these Terms of Service are reserved by Captova Technologies Inc, makers of SCANOV.
