      The Terms of Use and the use of the Website, Services and Material shall be construed, interpreted and enforced solely in accordance with, and the respective rights and obligations of the parties hereto shall solely be governed by, the laws of the Province of Alberta and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein without regard to the conflict of laws provisions thereof. The User hereby irrevocably consents and submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and, as applicable, the federal Court of Canada; and all courts competent to hear appeals therefrom and to any other court having jurisdiction over User solely to enforce a judgment of a Court of Alberta or the federal Court of Canada. User waives any objections to the laying of venue in such courts. User agrees not to seek to enforce an order that has its origin in any court other than the Courts of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada or the federal Court of Canada.

      Group RFx makes no representation or warranty that the Materials or Services available on the Website are appropriate or available for use in the jurisdiction of the User, and accessing them from jurisdictions where the contents of the Materials or Services are illegal is prohibited. Users who choose to access the Website from such locations do so at their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws.

      18. ENTIRE AGREEMENT

      The Terms of Use and all documents incorporated herein by reference constitute the entire agreement between User and Group RFx with respect to the use of and/or access to the Website and supersede all prior agreements and previous discussions (written or oral) between User and Group RFx relating to the subject matter hereof.

Group RFx may also add, delete or modify some or all of the Materials, Services or the Website at any time. If User continues to use the Materials, Services or the Website, then User will be considered to have accepted any such modifications. User may only amend the Terms of Use in a writing signed by both parties.

      19. GENERAL PROVISIONS

      If any provision of the Terms of Use is held invalid or unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be construed in accordance with the laws of Alberta as nearly as possible to reflect the original intentions of the parties, and the remainder of the provisions will remain in full force and effect.

      Headings are for reference purposes only and have no legal effect.

      Waiver by either party of a breach of any provision of the Terms of Use or the failure by either party to exercise any right hereunder shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach of that right or as a waiver of any other rights.

      Group RFx will not be liable for any amount for failure to perform any obligation under the Terms of Use if such failure is caused by the occurrence of a cause beyond the reasonable control of Group RFx including, without limitation, outages of the Internet or connections thereto, communications outages, earthquake, fire, flood, war, act of God, or any acts of governmental bodies or authorities.

      Users and Group RFx are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, employer – employee or other similar relationship is intended or created by User’s acceptance of the Terms of Use, or User’s use of or participation in the Website.

      The Terms of Use may not be assigned or transferred by User to third parties without the prior written permission of Group RFx.
