  • MUTUAL ARBITRATION AGREEMENT
    • Informal Negotiations. To expedite resolution and reduce the cost of any dispute, controversy or claim, past, present, or future, between you and HomeGuru, including without limitation any dispute or claim related to or arising out of this Agreement (“Dispute”), you and HomeGuru may attempt to negotiate any Dispute informally (the “Informal Negotiations”) before initiating any arbitration or court proceeding. Such Informal Negotiations will commence upon written notice. Your address for any notices under this Section is your physical address that you have provided to HomeGuru. HomeGuru’s address for such notices is: HOMEGURU SERVICES,LTD. Attn: 1600 – 925 WEST GEORGIA STREET VANCOUVER BC V6C 3L2 CANADA.
    • Arbitration. If a Dispute is not resolved through Informal Negotiations, you and HomeGuru agree to resolve any and all Disputes (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) through final and binding arbitration (“Arbitration Agreement”). This Arbitration Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and evidences a transaction involving commerce. The arbitration will be commenced and conducted before a single arbitrator under the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Consumer Rules”), both of which are available at the AAA website (www.adr.org). Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation will be governed by the AAA Rules (and,

where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules). If you are unable to pay such costs, HomeGuru will pay all arbitration fees and expenses. Each party will pay the fees for his/her or its own attorneys, subject to any remedies to which that party may later be entitled under applicable law. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing. Additionally, the arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of this Arbitration Agreement. However, the preceding sentence shall not apply to the “Class Action Waiver” described in Subsection (4) below.

  • Excluded Disputes. You and HomeGuru agree that the following Disputes are excluded from this Arbitration Agreement: (1) any Dispute seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or our intellectual property rights; (2) individual claims in small claims court; (3) any claim that an applicable federal statute expressly states cannot be arbitrated; and (4) any claim for injunctive relief.
    • WAIVER OF RIGHT TO BE A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN A CLASS ACTION. To fullest extent permitted by applicable law, You and HomeGuru agree to bring any Dispute in arbitration on an individual basis only, and not as a class or collective action. There will be no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought, heard or arbitrated as a class or collective action (“Class Action Waiver”). Regardless of anything else in this Arbitration Agreement and/or the applicable AAA Rules or AAA Consumer Rules, the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of the Class Action Waiver may only be determined by a court and not an arbitrator.
    • Rules/Standards Governing Arbitration Proceeding. A party who wishes to arbitrate a Dispute covered by this Arbitration Agreement must initiate an arbitration proceeding no later than the expiration of the statute of limitations that applicable law prescribes for the claim asserted. The arbitrator shall apply the statute of limitations that would have applied if the Dispute had been brought in court. The arbitrator may award any remedy to which a party is entitled under applicable law, but remedies shall be limited to those that would be available to a party in their individual capacity, and no remedies that otherwise would be available to an individual under applicable law will be forfeited. The arbitrator is without authority to apply any different substantive law. The parties have the right to conduct adequate civil discovery and present witnesses and evidence as needed to present their cases and defenses, and any dispute in this regard shall be decided by the arbitrator. The location of the arbitration proceeding shall take place in the city or county where you reside, unless each party agrees otherwise. A court of competent jurisdiction shall have the authority to enter judgment upon the arbitrator’s decision/award.
    • Severability. You and HomeGuru agree that if any portion of this Section entitled “Mutual Arbitration Agreement” is found illegal or unenforceable, that portion will be severed, and the remainder of this Section will be given full force and effect.
  • GOVERNING LAW

This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Canada, without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (either of t Canada or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than Canada.

  • LIMITATIONS PERIOD

Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, you agree that any claim or cause of action arising out or related to your participation in the Program or this Agreement shall be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or will forever be barred.
