Arbitration and Actions
Except where prohibited by applicable law, any controversy, claim or dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms, your use of the Site or the relationship which results from these Terms, including without limitation, the performance, breach, enforcement, existence or validity of the matters provided for in these Terms which cannot be amicably resolved, even if only one of the parties declares that there is a difference (collectively, a "Claim"), will be referred to and finally settled (to the exclusion of the courts) by private and confidential binding arbitration before a single arbitrator held in Toronto, Ontario in English and governed by Ontario law pursuant to the Arbitration Act, 1991 (Ontario), as amended, replaced or re-enacted from time to time. The arbitrator shall be a person who is legally trained and who has experience in the information technology field in Canada and is independent of either party.
