If this Agreement or your permission to access or use all or any part of the Website is terminated for any reason, then this Agreement and all other then existing agreements between you and Excellent Romantic Vacations.com will continue to apply and be binding upon you regarding your prior access to and use of the Website, and anything connected with, relating to or arising from your use.

12. GOVERNING LAW AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION

This Agreement, your access to and use of the Website, and all related matters are governed solely by the laws of British Columbia, Canada and applicable federal laws of Canada. You hereby irrevocably submit and attorn to the original and exclusive jurisdiction of British Columbia in respect of all disputes.

If there is any dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement, then the parties will use reasonable and good faith efforts to resolve such dispute, first by direct negotiation and then, if that is not successful, by mediation with a neutral third party mediator acceptable to both parties. Each party will bear its own costs and expenses in connection with any mediation and all costs and expenses of the mediator will be shared equally by the parties.

Any dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement that its not settled by agreement between the parties within a reasonable time will be settled exclusively by binding arbitration by a single arbitrator. The location of the arbitration will be Vancouver, Canada. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Act (British Columbia). The arbitrator will be selected and the arbitration conducted in accordance with the British Columbia International Arbitration Rules ("Rules") and conducted by the British Columbia International Commercial Arbitration Centre, except that the provisions of this Agreement will prevail over the Rules. The parties will share equally in the fees and expenses of the arbitrator and the cost of the facilities used for the arbitration hearing, but will otherwise each bear their respective costs incurred in connection with the arbitration. Depositions will not be allowed, but information may be exchanged by other means. The parties will use their best efforts to ensure that an arbitrator is selected promptly and that the arbitration hearing is conducted no later than 3 months after the arbitrator is selected. The arbitrator must decide the dispute in accordance with the substantive law of British Columbia. This requirement does not, however, mean that the award is reviewable by a court for errors of law or fact. Following the arbitration hearing, the arbitrator will issue an award and a separate written decision which summarizes the reasoning behind the award and the legal basis for the award.

The arbitrator will not:

(i) award damages excluded by the terms of this Agreement (ii) award damages in excess of the amount, if any, limited by the terms of this Agreement; or (iii) require one party to pay another party's costs, fees, attorney’s fees or expenses.

The award of the arbitrator will be final and binding on each party. Judgement upon the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

The dispute resolution procedures described in this Article are the sole and exclusive procedures for the resolution of any disputes which arise out of or are related to this Agreement, except that a party may seek preliminary or temporary injunctive relief from a court if, in that party's sole judgment, such action is necessary to avoid irreparable harm or to preserve the status quo. If a party seeks judicial injunctive relief as described in this Section, then the parties will continue to participate in good faith in the dispute resolution procedures described in this Article. The parties agree that no court which a party petitions to grant the type of preliminary or temporary injunctive relief described in this Section may award damages or resolve the dispute. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Excellent Romantic Vacations.com is not precluded at any time from seeking injunction relief against the other Party for intellectual property infringement in British Columbia or in the jurisdiction where the other Party is domiciled or resident or where the infringement is taking place.

13. OTHER MATTERS

If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, then the provision will be deemed to be severed from this Agreement and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect . This Agreement enures to the benefit of and is binding upon each of Excellent Romantic Vacations.com and its successors, assigns and related persons, and you and your heirs, executors, administrators, successors, permitted assigns and personal representatives. You may not assign this Agreement or the rights and obligations under this Agreement. Excellent Romantic Vacations.com may assign this Agreement and its rights and obligations under this Agreement without your consent.
