13.    Governing Law – British Columbia.

This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of British Columbia and the laws of Canada applicable therein notwithstanding any conflict of law rules.

14.    Dispute resolution.

Please read this section carefully. It affects rights that you may otherwise have. It provides for resolution of most disputes through arbitration instead of court trials and class actions. Arbitration is final and binding and subject to only very limited review by a court. This arbitration clause shall survive termination of this Agreement.

      (a)    Binding Arbitration: This provision is intended to be interpreted broadly to encompass all disputes or claims arising out of our relationship. Any dispute or claim made by you against us (or against any of our affiliated companies) arising out of or relating to this Agreement or your use of the BC Ferries Experience™ Card will be resolved by binding arbitration except that (a) you may take claims to small claims court if they qualify for hearing by such a court, or (b) you or we may choose to pursue claims in court if the claims relate solely to the collection of any debts you owe to us. However, even for those claims that may be taken to court, you and we both waive any claims for punitive damages and any right to pursue claims on a class or representative basis.

      (b)    Arbitration Procedures: You must first present any claim or dispute to us by contacting our Customer Service Centre to allow us an opportunity to resolve the dispute. You may request arbitration if your claim or dispute cannot be resolved within 120 days. The arbitration of any dispute or claim shall be conducted in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Act (BC) as modified by this Agreement. Unless you and we agree otherwise, any arbitration will take place in Vancouver, British Columbia, and will be conducted in the English language. An arbitrator may not award relief in excess of or contrary to what this Agreement provides, order consolidation or arbitration on a class wide or representative basis, or award punitive damages or any other damages aside from the prevailing party's actual damages, except that the arbitrator may award on an individual basis damages required by statute and may order injunctive or declaratory relief pursuant to an applicable consumer protection statute. Any arbitration shall be confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction. If any portion of this arbitration clause is determined by a court to be inapplicable or invalid, than the remainder shall still be given full force and effect.

      (c)    Costs of Arbitration: All administrative fees and expenses of arbitration will be divided equally between you and us. In all arbitrations, each party will bear the expense of its own counsel, experts, witnesses and preparation and presentation of evidence at the arbitration.

      (d)    Waiver of Punitive Damage Claims and Class Actions: By this Agreement, both you and we are waiving certain rights to litigate disputes in court. If for any reason this arbitration clause is deemed inapplicable or invalid, you and we both waive, to the fullest extent allowed by law, any claims to recover punitive or exemplary damages and any right to pursue any claims on a class or consolidated basis or in a representative capacity.

15.    Disclaimers and Limits of Liability.

BC FERRIES AND ITS AFFILIATES MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE BC FERRIES EXPERIENCE™ CARD, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR ANY WARRANTY ARISING BY USAGE OF TRADE, COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE. BC FERRIES DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT YOUR BC FERRIES EXPERIENCE™ CARD WILL ALWAYS BE ACCESSIBLE OR ACCEPTED.

IN THE EVENT THAT BC FERRIES OR ITS AFFILIATES ARE FOUND LIABLE TO YOU, YOU SHALL ONLY BE ENTITLED TO RECOVER ACTUAL AND DIRECT DAMAGES AND SUCH DAMAGES SHALL NOT EXCEED THE LAST BALANCE HELD ON YOUR BC FERRIES EXPERIENCE™ CARD. BC FERRIES AND ITS AFFILIATES SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOSS OF PROFIT, REVENUE OR USE) ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THIS AGREEMENT, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, WHETHER ACTIVE, PASSIVE OR IMPUTED), PRODUCT LIABILITY, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER THEORY, EVEN IF WE OR OUR AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL BC FERRIES OR ITS AFFILIATES HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO, OR ALTERATION, THEFT OR DESTRUCTION OF A BC FERRIES EXPERIENCE™ CARD THROUGH ACCIDENT, MISUSE, OR FRAUDULENT MEANS OR DEVICES BY YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY, OR AS A RESULT OF ANY DELAY OR MISTAKE RESULTING FROM ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL.

The laws of certain provinces or other jurisdictions may not allow limitations on implied warranties, or the exclusion or limitation of certain damages. If these laws apply, some or all of the above disclaimers, exclusions, or limitations may not apply to you, and you may have rights in addition to those contained in this Agreement. In such jurisdiction, our liability is limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.

16.    Assignment.

We may assign all or part of this Agreement without such assignment being considered a change to the Agreement and without notice to you. We will then be released from all liability. The assignee shall have the same rights and obligations as BC Ferries and shall agree in writing to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

17.    Entire Agreement Construction.

This Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of agreement between you and British Columbia Ferry Services Inc., and supersedes and merges all prior proposals and all other agreements. In the event that any provision of this Agreement shall be determined to be illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. Headings herein are for convenience of reference only and shall in no way affect interpretation of this Agreement.
