TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WELL AND ALL DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS OF WELL DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE SITE AND THE MATERIALS WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, OR ARISING BY COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR USE. Without limiting the foregoing, we do not represent or warrant that the Site and the Materials are accurate, complete, reliable, useful, timely or current or that the Site will operate without interruption or error.

7. Limitation of Liability
Your use of the Site and the Materials is undertaken at your own risk. Under no circumstances will WELL or any directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors and suppliers of WELL, be liable for any direct, incidental, consequential, indirect, or punitive damages arising out of your access to or use of the Site and the Materials, your reliance on the Site and the Materials or any consequences flowing therefrom. WELL is not responsible for late, lost, incomplete, illegible, misdirected or stolen messages, unavailable network connections, failed, incomplete, garbled or delayed computer transmissions, on-line failures, hardware, software or other technical malfunctions or disturbances or any other communications failures or circumstances affecting, disrupting or corrupting communications. THIS IS A COMPREHENSIVE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY THAT APPLIES TO ALL LOSSES AND DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (WHETHER GENERAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF DATA, INCOME OR PROFITS OR FAILURE TO REALIZE ANTICIPATED BENEFITS), WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT (INCLUDING FUNDAMENTAL BREACH), TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
If you are dissatisfied with the Site, the Materials or with this Agreement, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the Site or the Materials, as applicable.
You agree to indemnify and save harmless WELL and all directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors and suppliers of WELL (in this section, “we” and “us”) from and against any claim, cause of action, demand, cost, loss, expense or liability (including without limitation reasonable professional fees) brought against or suffered or incurred by us as a result of your use of the Site or the Materials or your breach of this Agreement. When we are threatened with suit or sued by a third party, we may seek written assurances from you concerning your promise to indemnify us; your failure to provide those assurances may be considered by us to be a material breach of this Agreement. In addition, in the event we are made a party to any claim, suit or action relating to or arising from any services offered by us that is: (a) initiated by you, which is unsuccessful; or (b) initiated by a third party, who is suing you; you will reimburse us at a reasonable rate for all personnel time and expenses expended by us in response to such claim, suit or action including without limitation, all attorney fees and expenses incurred by us with respect to such response. This defence and indemnification obligation will survive termination of this Agreement and your cessation of use of the Site.
9. Governing Law and Courts
This Agreement and your use of the Site will be governed by and interpreted exclusively in accordance with the laws of the Province of British Columbia, and the federal laws of Canada applicable in British Columbia, excluding its conflict of laws rules and all private international laws. You further agree that despite being available from a variety of jurisdictions, the Site will be deemed solely based in the Province of British Columbia, Canada; and that the Site will be deemed to be passive in nature and not giving rise to personal jurisdiction over WELL in jurisdictions other than the Province of British Columbia. You consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts located in the Province of British Columbia in all disputes arising out of or relating to your use of or inability to use the Site or this Agreement. However, you agree that nothing herein precludes WELL’s application for injunctive remedies or other urgent legal relief in any jurisdiction.
10. Severability; Waiver
The terms of this Agreement are severable. If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be unenforceable or invalid, then such provision will be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and such determination will not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions. No consent or waiver by either party to or of any breach or default by the other party in its performance of its obligations under this Agreement will be deemed or construed to be a consent to or waiver of a continuing breach or default or any other breach or default of those or any other obligations of that party. No consent or waiver will be effective unless in writing and signed by both parties.
The provisions of Sections 1, 2 and 4-15 will survive termination of the Agreement, howsoever occasioned.
This Agreement is between you and WELL and is not assignable or transferable expect with the express written consent of WELL, which may be unreasonably withheld. WELL may assign or transfer any of its rights or obligations within this Agreement without your consent.
13. Force Majeure
We will not be liable or responsible to you, nor be deemed to have defaulted or breached this Agreement, for any failure or delay in our performance under this Agreement, when and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by or results from acts or circumstances beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of God, flood, fire, pandemic, earthquake, tsunami, explosion, governmental actions, war, invasion or hostilities (whether war is declared or not), terrorist threats or acts, riot or other civil unrest, national emergency, revolution, insurrection, epidemic, lockouts, strikes or other labour disputes (whether or not relating to our workforce), or restraints or delays affecting carriers or inability or delay in obtaining supplies of adequate or suitable materials, materials or telecommunication breakdown, or power outage.
14. Entire Agreement
This Agreement, together with those documents incorporated or referred to herein, constitute the entire agreement between you and us relating to your use of the Site and the Materials (other than Apps offered by WELL which may be subject to additional or separate terms), and supersedes any prior understandings or agreements (whether electronic, oral or written) regarding the subject matter, and cannot be amended or modified except by our express and explicit agreement to modify this Agreement in writing, or by us making such amendments or modifications available to you pursuant to a modification of this Agreement as permitted herein. In the event of a conflict between the provisions of the Terms and the provisions of any other document or agreement incorporated or referenced herein, these Terms will govern to the extent of the inconsistency. We reserve the right to unilaterally update or modify (collectively “change”) this Agreement at any time and from time to time, effective as of the date of the change and apply to your use of the Site. We will notify you of any changes to this Agreement by posting notice of such changes on the Site, but you should also periodically review this Agreement as you use the Site. You agree that we have this right, and that your continued use of the Site following notice of such change means that you agree to and accept the amendments.
