Some aspects of this section may not apply in some jurisdictions if prohibited by applicable law.
The provisions of this Agreement are intended to be severable. If for any reason any provision of this Agreement shall be held invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part in any jurisdiction, such provision shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability without in any manner affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other jurisdiction or the remaining provisions hereof in any jurisdiction.
19. Applicable Law
This Agreement is governed by and shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario and the laws of Canada, the principal place of business of Holiday Group without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. You agree to bring any claims against Holiday Group, exclusively in the courts of the City of Toronto in the Province of Ontario.
20. Class Action Waiver
WHERE PERMITTED UNDER THE APPLICABLE LAW, YOU AND HOLIDAY GROUP AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. Unless both you and Holiday Group agree, no arbitrator or judge may consolidate more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
If you are located in, are based in, have offices in, or do business in a jurisdiction in which this Section (ARBITRATION) is enforceable, the following mandatory arbitration provisions apply to you:
A. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
You and Holiday Group agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Holiday Group arising in connection with or relating in any way to these Agreements or to your relationship with Holiday Group as a user of the Site (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and whether the claims arise during or after the termination of the Agreements) will be determined by mandatory binding individual arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. There may be more limited discovery than in court. The arbitrator must follow this agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney fees), except that the arbitrator may not award declaratory or injunctive relief benefiting anyone but the parties to the arbitration. This arbitration provision will survive termination of the Agreements.
Notwithstanding the foregoing clause (Dispute Resolution and Arbitration) above, you and Holiday Group both agree that nothing herein will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our rights, at any time, to (1) bring an individual action in an Ontario small claims court, (2) pursue enforcement actions through applicable Canadian federal, provincial, or local agencies where such actions are available, (3) seek injunctive relief in a court of law, or (4) to file suit in a court of law to address intellectual property infringement claims.
C. Arbitration rules
Either you or we may start arbitration proceedings. If you are located in, are based in, have offices in, or do business in Canada, any arbitration between you and Holiday Group will be finally settled under the Arbitration Rules of the Canadian Arbitration Association (“CAA”) then in force (the “CAA Rules”), as modified by the Agreements. The CAA Rules, as well as instructions on how to file an arbitration proceeding with the CAA, appear at canadianarbitrationassociation.ca, or you may call the CAA at 1-800-856-5154. Holiday Group can also help put you in touch with the CAA.
Any arbitration hearings will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Toronto, Ontario, provided that if the claim is for $10,000 CAD or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted (1) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (2) through a non-appearance based telephonic hearing; or (3) by an in-person hearing as established by the CAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address.
Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation will be limited to those fees set forth on the CAA website with the remainder paid by Holiday Group. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous, vexatious or abusive (as set forth in the Ontario Rules of Civil Procedure), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the CAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse Holiday Group for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the CAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
If you are not located in, are not based in, do not have offices in, and do not do business in Canada, any arbitration between you and Holiday Group will be finally settled under the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce (the “ICC”) then in force (the “ICC Rules”) by one or more arbitrators appointed in accordance with the ICC Rules, as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the International Court of Arbitration of the ICC.
Any arbitration will be conducted in the English language and unless otherwise required by a mandatory law of a member state of the European Union or any other jurisdiction, the law to be applied in any arbitration shall be the law of the Province of Ontario, Canada, without regard to choice or conflicts of law principles.
D. Time for filing
Any arbitration must be commenced by filing a demand for arbitration within TWO (2) YEARS after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or reasonably should know of the act, omission, or default giving rise to the claim; and there shall be no right to any remedy for any claim not asserted within that time period. If applicable law prohibits a two-year limitation period for asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period permitted by applicable law.
E. Notice; Process
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by Registered Mail or Federal Express (signature required), or in the event that we do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail ("Notice"). Holiday Group's address for Notice is: TP-Holiday Group Limited, Attn: Corporate Counsel / CFO, 4875 boul. Des Grandes Prairies, Montreal, Quebec, Canada H1R 1X4. The Notice must (1) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (2) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, you or Holiday Group may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Holiday Group shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. All documents and information disclosed in the course of the arbitration shall be kept strictly confidential by the recipient and shall not be used by the recipient for any purpose other than for purposes of the arbitration or the enforcement of arbitrator’s decision and award and shall not be disclosed except in confidence to persons who have a need to know for such purposes or as required by applicable law. Except as required to enforce the arbitrator’s decision and award, neither you nor Holiday Group shall make any public announcement or public comment or originate any publicity concerning the arbitration, including, but not limited to, the fact that the parties are in dispute, the existence of the arbitration, or any decision or award of the arbitrator.
In the event that Holiday Group makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to Holiday Group's address for Notice), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) days of the change to Holiday Group's address for Notice, in which case your account with Holiday Group shall be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject, shall survive.
If the class action waiver set forth above is found to be unenforceable in arbitration or if the entirety of the provisions regarding arbitration and dispute resolution are found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of such provisions shall be null and void and, in such case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 19 shall govern any action arising out of or related to the Agreements.
