You agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Ontario, except for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below. If you use the Service from outside of Canada, you are responsible for complying with the laws and regulations of the territory from which you access or use the Service but you agree that the laws of the Province of Ontario and Canada shall apply to your relationship with FITHAUS.
FITHAUS has no responsibility whatsoever for the actions or conduct of Users or Third Party Service Providers. FITHAUS has no obligation to intervene in or be involved in any way in disputes that may arise between Third Party Service Providers, Users, or third parties. Responsibility for the decisions you make regarding providing or accepting fitness services rest solely with You.
For any dispute with FITHAUS, you agree to first e-mail us at FITHAUS’s Customer Service e-mail at email@example.com and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. If the matter is not resolved, any disputes or claims in connection with or arising out of this Agreement, its negotiation, breach, existence, validity or termination will be referred to and finally determined by arbitration, from which there will be no appeal, before a single arbitrator in Toronto in accordance with the provisions of the Arbitration Act (Ontario). For greater certainty, the application of article 34 is expressly excluded. Liability for costs will be decided through the arbitration process. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable legal fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of that party’s data security, intellectual property rights, or other proprietary rights. ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS USER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND FITHAUS ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
