  • DISPUTES
  • Complaint procedure. For any dispute arising from or relating to this agreement, you agree to contact GNS first to attempt to solve the dispute informally. If GNS has not been able to solve the dispute with you informally, each party agrees to settle the dispute by resorting to mediation first, in accordance with the provisions of articles 605 et seq. of the Quebec Code of Civil Procedure, unless mediation (i) is not initiated at the initiative of a party within ten (10) days following the end of the period specified in a notice of default sent by one party to the other, or (ii) does not end in an amicable agreement after twenty (20) days following the start of mediation and, then, if mediation has not resulted in an amicable agreement, by mandatory arbitration, in the city of Quebec (Canada), unless you and GNS agree otherwise, in accordance with the provisions of articles 620 et seq. of the Quebec Code of Civil Procedure, except in the circumstances for which applicable laws prohibit referral to arbitration or restrict a consumer’s right to appear in court.
  • Class action. Unless the circumstances for which applicable laws prohibit restrictions to the right of a party to file a class action, all claims must be brought by the parties in their own names, and not as plaintiffs or members of a class action, in any instance, by representation or in a class action and, unless the parties decide otherwise, an arbitrator may not combine the claims of more than one person.
  • Injunction. Nothing in this section shall prevent the parties from obtaining provisional measures or a safeguard order, such as an injunction or any other measure deemed equitable, from a competent court, before or during arbitration proceedings.
  • APPLICABLE LAW

This agreement shall be governed and interpreted in accordance with the laws in force in the province of Quebec, regardless of the rules applicable in the event of a conflict of laws. Your conduct may also be subject to other local, national or state laws.

A written waiver of a defect may not be interpreted as a waiver of any other defect or a defect of the same nature that may occur in the future.
  3. Nullity or unenforceability.
