Other than your User Content (defined below), all Content and all software available on or in respect of the Services or used to create and operate the Services (including, without limitation, Brite Bite and the Site), and any future updates, upgrades and new versions thereof is the property of Brite Bite or its licensors, and is protected by Canadian and international intellectual property laws, and all rights to the Services, such Content and such software are expressly reserved.

Reference to any products, services, processes, or other information, by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, supplier, or otherwise does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship, or recommendation thereof by Brite Bite.
Except as expressly permitted above, any access to or use of any portion of the Services or Content (including, without limitation, Brite Bite and the Site) is strictly prohibited and will terminate the licenses granted in this Section, these Terms, and your account with us. Any such unauthorized use may also violate applicable laws, including without limitation copyright and trademark laws. Unless explicitly stated herein, nothing in these Terms may be construed as conferring any license to intellectual property rights, whether by estoppel, implication or otherwise. The licenses in this Section are revocable by Brite Bite at any time.
You represent and warrant that your use of the Services and the Content will be consistent with this license and will not infringe or violate the rights of any other party or breach any contract or legal duty to any other parties or violate any applicable law.
Your User Content is your property. Our only right to your User Content is the limited license to it granted in these Terms.
Your User Content is your responsibility. We have no responsibility or liability for it, or for any loss or damage your User Content may cause to you or other people. Although we have no obligation to do so, we have the sole discretion to remove, screen or edit without notice any User Content posted or stored on the Services, and we may do this at any time and for any reason. You are solely responsible for maintaining copies of and replacing any User Content you post or store on the Services. If you authorize third parties to access your User Content through the Services, you agree that we are permitted to provide to them the User Content and agree that we have no responsibility or liability for their use of such User Content.

We take reliability and security seriously and put a great deal of effort into ensuring that our service operates all the time, and that it is a secure environment for your data. We use what we believe to be “best-of-class” hosting services and security technologies and services that we believe provide you with a secure and safe environment.
However, no system is perfectly secure or reliable, the Internet is an inherently insecure medium, and the reliability of hosting services, Internet intermediaries, your Internet service provider, and other service providers cannot be assured. When you use the Services, you accept these risks, and the responsibility for choosing to use a technology that does not provide perfect security or reliability.
Any of the Services may be or may become subject to payment of fees. If any fees are charged, these will be notified separately, and we may set out further terms applying to such payments.
The Services may also prompt or contain third party advertisements. All such advertisings are paid for by the relevant third-party advertiser and are not recommendations or endorsements by the Company or its affiliates. You should refer to the relevant advertiser for information on its products and/or services. We have responsibility or liability for in respect of such third-party advertisements. Any use of and reliance on such information is at your own risk.
Should you submit any comments or feedback to us, you agree that we can use, reproduce, and exploit them without any restriction and compensation to you, unless otherwise agreed between you and Brite Bite.
You may receive notifications, emails, text messages, alerts, and other electronic communications during your use of the Services for the purpose as we may need to provide you with certain notifications, such as announcement regarding service changes or policy changes. We are not responsible for any fees which may be charged by your carrier regarding these communications. Any such communications will be in accordance with applicable law requirements.
These Terms will apply to your use of the Services until your access or use is terminated by either you or us. You may terminate your use of the Services at any time.

Except where prohibited by applicable law, any claim, dispute or controversy (whether in contract or tort, pursuant to statute or regulation, or otherwise, and whether preexisting, present or future) involving Brite Bite and arising out of or relating to
(i) these Terms; (ii) the Brite Bite Solution (or any component thereof); (iii) oral or written statements, advertisements or promotions relating to these Terms or to the Brite Bite Solution (or any component thereof); or (d) the relationships that result from these Terms or the Brite Bite Solution (or any component thereof) (collectively, a “Claim”), will be referred to and determined by a sole arbitrator (to the exclusion of the courts). If you have a Claim, you should give written notice to arbitrate at the address specified below. If we have a Claim, we will give you notice to arbitrate at your address provided in your Registration Data. Arbitration will be conducted by one arbitrator pursuant to the commercial arbitration laws and rules in effect on the date of the notice in the Province of Ontario.
To the extent arbitration as described in the immediately preceding paragraph is prohibited by applicable law, you agree that all Claims will be heard and resolved in a court of competent subject matter jurisdiction located in Toronto, Ontario. You consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts over you, stipulate to the fairness and convenience of proceeding in such courts, and covenant not to assert any objection to proceeding in such courts.
