The Coaches Site may immediately terminate Customer’s right to use the Services or this Agreement (including all Order Forms): (1) if The Coaches Site believes that Customer or any Permitted User has violated this Agreement (including the AUP); (2) if The Coaches Site believes the use of Customer Data with the Services is not in The Coaches Site’s or its users’ best interests; (3) if The Coaches Site ceases to offer the Services; or (4) as required by Applicable Laws.
Termination for Convenience. Except as expressly specified in an Order Form, either Party may terminate the Agreement or any Order Form at any time for any reason by providing at least 30 days advance written notice to the other Party, provided: (i) you will not be entitled to a refund of any pre-paid Fees; and (ii) if you have not already paid all applicable Fees for the then-current Subscription Term, any such Fees that are outstanding will become immediately due and payable.
Effect of Termination. Upon expiration or termination of this Agreement, Customer will immediately cease (and ensure that all Permitted Users immediately cease) accessing or using the TCS Platform and return The Coaches Site Property in its possession and certify in writing to The Coaches Site that The Coaches Site Property has been returned. No expiration or termination will affect Customer’s obligation to pay all Fees that may have become due before such expiration or termination or entitle Customer to any refund. All Fees due and payable and any amounts due to The Coaches Site are immediately due and are to be immediately paid by Customer to The Coaches Site. All Order Forms will terminate upon the termination of this Agreement. No new Order Forms may be agreed to or entered into by the Parties, upon the termination of this Agreement.
Survival. The following Sections, together with any other provision of this Agreement which expressly or by its nature survives termination or expiration, or which contemplates performance or observance subsequent to termination or expiration of this Agreement, will survive expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason: Section 4 (Ownership; Reservation of Rights), Section 5 (Privacy), Section 6 (Fees and Payment), Section 8 (Confidential Information), Section 9 (Warranty and Disclaimer), Section 10 (Indemnities), Section 11 (Limitation of Liabilities), Section 12 (Survival), and Section 13 (General Provisions).
Except as otherwise specified in an Order Form, The Coaches Site has no obligation under this Agreement to provide support services for the TCS Platform to Customer.
Notices. Notices sent to either Party will be effective when delivered in writing and in person or by email, one day after being sent by overnight courier, or five days after being sent by first class mail postage prepaid to the official contact designated by the Party to whom a notice is being given. Notices must be sent: (i) if to The Coaches Site, to 1055 Dunsmuir Street, Suite 3000, Vancouver, BC, V7X 1K8 and to firstname.lastname@example.org; and (ii) if to Customer, to the current mailing or email address that The Coaches Site has on file with respect to Customer. The Coaches Site may change its contact information by posting the new contact information on our mobile app or Website or by giving notice thereof to Customer. Customer is solely responsible for keeping Customer’s contact information on file with The Coaches Site current at all times during the Term.
Assignment. Customer may not assign this Agreement to any third party without The Coaches Site’s prior written consent. Any purported assignment or delegation by Customer in violation of this Section will be null and void. The Coaches Site may assign this Agreement or any rights under this Agreement to any third party without Customer’s consent. This Agreement enures to the benefit of and is binding upon the Parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
Governing Law and Attornment. This Agreement and any action related thereto will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the British Columbia and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein, without regard to conflicts of law principles. The Parties will initiate any lawsuits in connection with this Agreement in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and irrevocably attorn to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of the courts sitting therein. The U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to this Agreement. This choice of jurisdiction does not prevent The Coaches Site from seeking injunctive relief with respect to a violation of Intellectual Property Rights or confidentiality obligations in any appropriate jurisdiction.
Export Restrictions. Customer will comply with all export laws and regulations that may apply to its access to or use of the TCS Platform. The Coaches Site makes no representation or warranty that the TCS Platform may be exported without Customer first obtaining appropriate licenses or permits under Applicable Law, or that any such license or permit has been, will be, or can be obtained.
Construction. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, the Parties’ rights and remedies under this Agreement are cumulative and are in addition to, and not in substitution for, any other rights and remedies available at law or in equity or otherwise. The terms “include” and “including” mean, respectively, “include without limitation” and “including without limitation.” The headings of sections of this Agreement are for reference purposes only and have no substantive effect. The terms “consent” or “discretion” mean the right of a Party to withhold such consent or exercise such discretion, as applicable, arbitrarily and without any implied obligation to act reasonably or explain its decision to the other Party.
Force Majeure. Neither Party will be liable for delays caused by any event or circumstances beyond that Party’s reasonable control, including acts of God, acts of government, flood, fire, earthquakes, civil unrest, acts of terror, strikes or other labour problems (other than those involving that Party’s employees), Internet service failures or delays, or the unavailability or Modification by third parties of telecommunications or hosting infrastructure or third-party websites (“Force Majeure”). For clarity, a Force Majeure event will not excuse the Customer from its failure to pay Fees or Customer’s indemnities under this Agreement. This Section does not apply to any of Customer’s obligations under Sections 6, 8, or 10.
Severability. Any provision of this Agreement found by a tribunal or court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable will be severed from this Agreement and all other provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
Waiver. A waiver of any provision of this Agreement must be in writing and a waiver in one instance will not preclude enforcement of such provision on other occasions.
Independent Contractors. The Coaches Site’s relationship to Customer is that of an independent contractor, and neither Party is an agent or partner of the other. Neither Party will have, and neither Party will represent to any third party that it has, any authority to act on behalf of the other Party.
Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements, representations or other communications between the Parties, whether written or oral.
Amendments. No amendment, supplement, modification, waiver, or termination of this Agreement and, unless otherwise expressly specified in this Agreement, no consent or approval by any Party, will be binding unless executed in writing by the Party or Parties to be bound thereby. NOTWITHSTANDING THE PRECEDING SENTENCE, THE COACHES SITE MAY UNILATERALLY AMEND THIS AGREEMENT, IN WHOLE OR IN PART (EACH, AN “AMENDMENT”), BY GIVING CUSTOMER PRIOR NOTICE OF SUCH AMENDMENT OR POSTING NOTICE OF SUCH AMENDMENT THROUGH OUR MOBILE APP OR WEBSITE. UNLESS OTHERWISE INDICATED BY THE COACHES SITE, ANY SUCH AMENDMENT WILL BECOME EFFECTIVE AS OF THE DATE THE NOTICE OF SUCH AMENDMENT IS PROVIDED TO CUSTOMER OR IS POSTED ON OUR MOBILE APP OR WEBSITE (WHICHEVER IS THE EARLIER).
No Third Party Beneficiaries. Except for The Coaches Site’s licensors and Sections 10(a)(i) and 10(b), nothing in this Agreement, express or implied, is intended to or will confer upon any person other than the Party and their respective successors and permitted assigns any legal or equitable right, benefit, or remedy of any nature under or by reason of this Agreement.
