All content that you submit may be used at Fido’s sole discretion. You acknowledge and agree that any content that you submit and your user name will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary.  We may access or preserve your submissions to comply with legal process in Canada or foreign jurisdictions, ensure compliance with these Terms, or protect ourselves, our customers or the public. Fido does not guarantee that you will have any recourse to edit or delete any content you have submitted.  Fido may, at any time, without notice or liability to you, remove or refuse to post any submission, in whole or in part, that we decide in our sole discretion is unacceptable, undesirable or in violation of any law, these Terms or any other Condition. You acknowledge that you, not Fido, are responsible for the contents of your submission and will be liable for any loss or damage resulting, directly or indirectly, therefrom.

 

These Terms are governed exclusively by the laws of the province in which you reside, but if you reside outside of Canada, then these Terms are governed exclusively by the laws of the province of Ontario and the laws of Canada applicable therein, without giving effect to their conflict of laws principles. You expressly consent to the exclusive forum, jurisdiction, and venue of the courts of Ontario and/or the Federal Court of Canada in Ontario, or any other judicial district or jurisdiction as Fido may determine in any and all actions, disputes, or controversies relating hereto. Please note that your rights and remedies may vary by province.  The Conditions constitute the entire agreement between Fido and you with respect to your use of the Forums. No waiver by either Fido or you of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. If any provisions contained herein shall be determined to be void, invalid, or otherwise enforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such determination shall not affect the remaining provisions contained herein.

 

These Terms have been drawn up in the English language at the express request of the parties. La présente convention a été rédigée en anglais à la demande expresse des parties.

 

I acknowledge that I have read, fully understand and agree to abide by these Terms.
