We both agree now that the decision of the arbitrator is final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction in Ontario.
By purchasing our Products and Services or Training Materials, you are agreeing to a modification of the statute of limitations such that any arbitration must be begun within one (1) year of the date of your email referenced above or you waive the right to seek dispute resolution by arbitration or to take any other legal action against us.

In the event of a dispute between us, you agree to not engage in any conduct or communications, whether in public or in private including but not limited to on social media, either directly or indirectly, designed to disparage us, our company, or any of our Products and Services or Training Materials. Where requested by law or arbitration, of course, you are not prohibited from sharing your thoughts and opinions as part of the legal process.
If any provisions in the Agreement are construed by a court of competent jurisdiction to be void or unenforceable for any reason, it shall be deemed to be severed from the Agreement and shall not affect the validity or enforceability of all other provisions in the Agreement, which shall remain in full force.
Time shall be of the essence in all respects of the Agreement.
