You will only utilize Your Membership in accordance with applicable laws. You will not utilize Your Membership to purchase Products for the purpose of resale to third parties.
Membership Shipping Program Cancellation/Termination
You may cancel Your Membership within seventy-two (72) hours after sign up, provided that You have not purchased Products and received any benefits (e.g., free shipping, etc.) through the Membership Shipping Program prior to such cancellation.

Customer agrees to pay interest on all past-due sums at the lower of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the highest rate allowed by law. Customer will pay for, and will indemnify and hold Seller and its Affiliates harmless from, any applicable sales, use, transaction, excise or similar taxes and any federal, provincial or local fees or charges (including, but not limited to, environmental or similar fees), imposed on, in respect of or otherwise associated with Customer’s Membership. Taxes may apply to the Fee and to the waived shipping charges. Customer must claim any exemption from such taxes, fees or charges at the time of purchase and provide Seller with the necessary supporting documentation. In the event of a payment default, Customer will be responsible for all of Seller’s costs of collection, including, but not limited to, court costs, filing fees and attorneys’ fees. In addition, if payments are not received as described above, Seller reserves the right to suspend Customer’s Membership until payment is received.

IN THE EVENT OF ANY LIABILITY INCURRED BY SELLER OR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES, THE ENTIRE LIABILITY OF SELLER AND ITS AFFILIATES FOR DAMAGES FROM ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER WILL NOT EXCEED THE DOLLAR AMOUNT PAID BY CUSTOMER FOR ITS MEMBERSHIP IN SELLER’S MEMBERSHIP SHIPPING PROGRAM.
Any claim, dispute, or controversy (whether in contract, tort or otherwise, whether preexisting, present or future, and including, but not limited to, statutory, common law, intentional tort and equitable claims) arising from or relating to the Membership Shipping Program or application of these Membership Shipping Terms and Conditions, or the breach, termination or validity thereof, the relationships which result from these Membership Shipping Terms and Conditions (including, to the full extent permitted by applicable law, relationships with third parties who are not signatories hereto) (collectively, a “Claim”) WILL BE RESOLVED, UPON THE ELECTION OF ANY OF SELLER, CUSTOMER OR THE THIRD PARTIES INVOLVED, EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION. If arbitration is chosen, it will be conducted pursuant to the National Arbitration Rules of the ADR Institute of Canada, Inc. If arbitration is chosen by any party with respect to a Claim, neither Seller nor Customer will have the right to litigate that Claim in court or to have a jury trial on that Claim or to engage in pre-arbitration discovery, except as provided for in the applicable arbitration rules or by agreement of the parties involved. Further, Customer will not have the right to participate as a representative or member of any class of claimants pertaining to any Claim. Notwithstanding any choice of law provision included in these Membership Shipping Terms and Conditions, this arbitration agreement is subject to the Arbitration Act, 1991 (Ontario), as amended. The arbitration will take place exclusively in Toronto, Ontario. The language of the arbitration shall be conducted in English. Any court having jurisdiction may enter judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s). Each party involved will bear its own cost of any legal representation, discovery or research required to complete arbitration. The existence or results of any arbitration will be treated as confidential. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, all matters pertaining to the collection of amounts due to Seller arising out of the Products or Services will be exclusively litigated in court rather than through arbitration.
THESE MEMBERSHIP SHIPPING TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND CUSTOMER’S MEMBERSHIP WILL BE GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE PROVINCE OF ONTARIO AND THE FEDERAL LAWS OF CANADA APPLICABLE THEREIN, WITHOUT REGARD TO CONFLICTS OF LAWS RULES. ANY ARBITRATION, ENFORCEMENT OF AN ARBITRATION OR LITIGATION WILL BE BROUGHT EXCLUSIVELY IN TORONTO, ONTARIO AND CUSTOMER CONSENTS TO THE NON-EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION OF THE COURTS OF ONTARIO WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUBJECT MATTER ARISING HEREUNDER OR RELATING THERETO AND WAIVES THE RIGHT TO CHANGE VENUE. CUSTOMER FURTHER CONSENTS TO THE EXERCISE OF PERSONAL JURISDICTION BY ANY SUCH COURT WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUCH PROCEEDING. Except in the case of nonpayment, neither party may institute any action in any form arising out of these Membership Shipping Terms and Conditions more than one (1) year after the cause of action has arisen.

If any term or condition of these Membership Shipping Terms and Conditions is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or otherwise unenforceable, the same shall not affect the other terms or conditions hereof or thereof or the whole of these Membership Shipping Terms and Conditions. Any delay or failure by either party to exercise any right or remedy will not constitute a waiver of that party to thereafter enforce such rights.
