2. Identity Verification and Restricted Business
When applying to use Parapluie Terminal Services, Parapluie Creative is legally obligated to verify your identity, and your nature of business. We may either verify your identity and nature of business in person, or by a 3rd party identity verification service. Businesses found on either Stripe’s Restricted Businesses List (available at https://stripe.com/en-ca/restricted-businesses), or our Restricted Businesses List (available at https://parapluiecreative.ca/restricted-business) may not use Parapluie Terminal Services. If we find that you are using Parapluie Terminal Services for the purpose of conducting Restricted Business Activities, we may suspend your Parapluie Terminal Services account, without notice to you. We may also inform Stripe of your use of Stripe’s services to conduct restricted business activity.
By registering with us, you are confirming that you will not use the Service to accept payments in connection with the Restricted businesses, business activities, or business practices, unless you have received prior written approval from Stripe and Parapluie Creative. It is prohibited to use the Service for any dealings, engagement, or sale of goods/services linked directly or indirectly with jurisdictions Stripe has deemed high risk, such as Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Crimea Region, and Syria.
All Terminal hardware sold to you becomes your property, upon complete and full payment of outstanding account balances with us. All hardware has a 30-day limited warranty, provided and managed by Parapluie Creative. Before returning malfunctioning hardware, you must request a Return Materials Authorization (“RMA”) from us. Hardware returned without a valid RMA, or hardware shipped after the expiry of the limited warranty may not be returned, repaired, or otherwise serviced. The 30-day limited warranty begins as soon as we receive notice from a shipping carrier that your hardware order has been delivered to the address you’ve specified to us. Your warranty shall be rendered void as a result of any violation of this agreement. Devices purchased are non-refundable, in all cases, except when required by law, or in our sole discretion. We may, in our sole discretion, choose to offer an extended term warranty. If you are offered an extended term warranty, the length of your warranty will be specified on the invoice for hardware provided by Parapluie Creative. You must have completed hardware registration in order to benefit from any warranty we provide. You are responsible for any and all shipping charges to, and from, Parapluie Creative’s offices for the purpose of Warranty related claims. This warranty is in addition to any of your legal rights.

Under no circumstances will any Parapluie Creative Entity be responsible or liable to you for any indirect, punitive, incidental, special, consequential, or exemplary damages resulting from your use or inability to use the Services or for the unavailability of the Services, for lost profits, personal injury, or property damage, or for any other damages arising out of, in connection with, or relating to this Agreement or your use of the Services, even if such damages are foreseeable, and whether or not you or the Parapluie Creative Entities have been advised of the possibility of such damages. The Parapluie Creative Entities are not liable, and deny responsibility for any damages, harm, or losses to you arising from or relating to hacking, tampering, or other unauthorized access or use of the Services, your Stripe Account, or Data, or your failure to use or implement anti-fraud measures, the Security Controls, or any other data security measure.

17. Dispute Resolution; Agreement to Arbitrate
a. Binding Arbitration: Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or in respect of any legal relationship associated with or derived from this Agreement, including without limitation the formation, interpretation, breach or termination thereof, including whether the claims asserted are arbitrable, will be referred to and finally determined by arbitration administered by ICDR Canada in accordance with its Canadian Arbitration Rules. The number of arbitrators shall be one. The place of the arbitration shall be Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The language of the arbitration shall be English. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof.
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the Province Of British Columbia and the federal laws of Canada applicable in that Province. Nothing in this paragraph will preclude the parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
Either party may commence arbitration by providing to ICDR Canada and the other party to the dispute a written demand for arbitration, setting forth the subject of the dispute and the relief requested (“Arbitration Demand”).
b. Service of Process: Each party hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consents to service of process through personal service at their corporate headquarters, registered address, or primary address (for individuals or sole proprietors). Nothing in this Agreement will affect the right of any party to serve process in any other manner permitted by Law.
c. Class Waiver: To the fullest extent permitted by Law, each of the parties agrees that any dispute arising out of or in connection with this Agreement will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim or dispute proceeds in court rather than through arbitration, each party knowingly and irrevocably waives any right to trial by jury in any action, proceeding or counterclaim arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated between the parties.
d. Provision of an Award: Subject to the limitations of liability identified in this Agreement, the appointed arbitrator may award monetary damages and any other remedies allowed by Law. In making a determination, the arbitrator will not have the authority to modify any term or provision of this Agreement. The arbitrator will deliver a reasoned written decision with respect to the dispute (the “Award”) to each party, who will promptly act in accordance with the Award. Any Award (including interim or final remedies) may be confirmed in or enforced by any court having jurisdiction over either party or its assets. The decision of the arbitrator will be final and binding on the parties, and will not be subject to appeal or review.
e. Fees: Each party will advance one-half of the fees and expenses of the arbitrator, the costs of the attendance of the arbitration reporter at the arbitration hearing, and the costs of the arbitration facility. In any arbitration arising out of or related to this Agreement, the arbitrator will award to the prevailing party, if any, the costs and legal fees reasonably incurred by the prevailing party in connection with those aspects of its claims or defenses on which it prevails, and any opposing awards of costs and legal fees awards will be offset.
f. Confidentiality: The parties will maintain the confidential nature of the arbitration proceeding, the hearing and the Award, except as may be necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, or except as may be necessary in connection with a court application as contemplated above for a preliminary remedy, or confirmation of an Award or its enforcement, or unless otherwise required by applicable Laws. The parties, witnesses, and arbitrator will treat as confidential and will not disclose to any third person (other than witnesses or experts) any documentary or other evidence produced in any arbitration hereunder, except as required by Law or except if such evidence was obtained from the public domain or was otherwise obtained independently from the arbitration.
g. Conflict of Rules: In the case of a conflict between the provisions of this Section 17.g and the rules governing arbitration identified in Section 17.a, the provisions of this Section 17.g will prevail. If any provision of this Agreement to arbitrate is held invalid or unenforceable, it will be so held to the minimum extent required by Law and all the other provisions will remain valid and enforceable.
