a. Service. Advizzy may offer a platform through the Service to help users locate information on a variety of topics and help users seek professionals, such as third party experts, advocates, and advisors (collectively, “Advisors”), who can later provide them with advisory or other services (the “Ask an Advisor Platform). We may also create and maintain a directory of such Advisors to help users to locate and identify an Advisor (or other services). Advizzy may also provide discussion forums, bulletin boards, review services or other forums (the “Interactive Areas”) in which you and other third parties may post questions. If Advizzy provides such Interactive Areas, you are solely responsible for your use of such Interactive Areas in compliance with the Terms hereunder and you shall use them at your own risk.

Advizzy does not endorse any particular Advisor and cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of any services provided by any Advisor. Advizzy cannot perform a check for conflicts of interest between you and an Advisor.

22. CHOICE OF LAW, DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND ARBITRATION.
a. Generally. The Terms and Conditions shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the Ontario, Canada, without regard to conflict of law principles. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Advizzy in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and Advizzy agree that any and all disputes arising in connection with these Terms shall be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Our agreement to arbitrate disputes includes, but is not limited to all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether the claims arise during or after the termination of these Terms. You understand and agree that, by entering into these Terms, you and Advizzy are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action.
b. Exceptions. We both agree that nothing herein shall be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our right to (i) bring an individual action in small claims court, (ii) pursue enforcement actions through applicable federal, state, or local agencies where such actions are available, (iii) seek injunctive relief in any competent court of law, or (iv) to file suit in a court of law to address intellectual property infringement claims.
c. Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and Advizzy will be governed by the Canadian Arbitration Association (collectively, “CAA Rules”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the CAA. The CAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.canadianarbitrationassociation.ca.
23. ENTIRE AGREEMENT
The Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersede all previous written or oral agreements between the parties with respect to such subject matter.
24. NO AMENDMENT OR WAIVER
The Terms and Conditions may not be amended except in writing signed by both parties and no waiver by either party shall be deemed a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default, unless such a waiver is in writing and signed by an authorized representative of Advizzy.
