9. Governing Law

This agreement, and any dispute, controversy, proceedings or claim of whatever nature arising out of or in any way relating to these Terms and Conditions or its formation shall be governed by and construed in accordance with laws of the Province of Ontario and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein.

10. Modification of the Terms

Snappa reserves the right to update or modify the Terms and Conditions at any time without prior notice, and such changes will be effective immediately upon being posted on the website. These Terms and Conditions will identify the date of last update. In the case of material changes to the Terms and Conditions, Snappa will make reasonable efforts to notify you of the change, such as through sending an email to any address you may have used to register for an account, through a pop-up window on the website, or other similar mechanism.

11. Dispute Resolution

In the event of any controversy or dispute between Snappa and you arising out of or in connection with your use of the website, the parties shall attempt, promptly and in good faith, to resolve any such dispute. If we are unable to resolve any such dispute within a reasonable time (not to exceed thirty (30) days), then either party may submit such controversy or dispute to binding arbitration. Such arbitration shall be conducted by a single arbitrator. The arbitrator will be appointed by agreement between the parties or, in default of agreement, such arbitrator will be appointed by an Ontario Judge of The Superior Court of Justice upon application of any of the said parties. A Judge of The Superior Court of Ontario shall be entitled to act as such arbitrator, if he or she so desires. The arbitration shall be held in the City of Ottawa, Ontario. The procedure to be followed will be agreed by the parties or, in default of agreement, determined by the arbitrator. The arbitration will proceed in accordance with the provisions of Arbitration Act, 1991 (Ontario). The arbitrator will have the power to proceed with the arbitration and to deliver the award notwithstanding the default by any party in respect of any procedural order made by the arbitrator. The decision arrived at by the arbitrator shall be final and binding and no appeal shall lie therefrom. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Nothing in this section will prevent either party from seeking injunctive relief from a court of competent jurisdiction.

12. Miscellaneous

If any of the provisions of these Terms and Conditions are held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be void or unenforceable, such provisions shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary and replaced with a valid provision that best embodies the intent of these Terms and Conditions so that these Terms and Conditions shall remain in full force and effect. These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and Snappa with regard to your use of the website, and any and all other written or oral agreements or understandings previously existing between you and Snappa with respect to such use are hereby superseded and cancelled.
