  1. Fees.  You agree to pay all applicable fees in connection with the Services, as set forth in ApplyBoard’s standard price list, as set forth on ApplyBoard’s website or as otherwise provided to you.  Fees are quoted and payable in Canadian dollars, and are based on Services purchased.  ApplyBoard reserves the right to modify such fees, upon reasonable notice, which may be performed by updating ApplyBoard’s standard price list, as set forth on ApplyBoard’s website.  Your use of the Services following such changes constitutes your acceptance of any new or increased charges.  You acknowledge that certain fees are set by Institutions or other third parties, and that ApplyBoard has no control over the fee amount, but simply remits such fee directly to the applicable Institution or third party, and that payment obligations are therefore non-cancellable and fees paid are non-refundable.  

  1. Fee Payment.  Where you pay fees by means of a credit card, you authorize ApplyBoard or its third party payment processor to automatically charge you for any and all fees incurred by you for Services.  If your credit card is rejected for any reason, you will be responsible for any fees and charges associated with such rejection.  The foregoing shall not limit ApplyBoard’s ability to exercise any rights available to it in law or equity respecting the collection of any amounts payable hereunder, and you shall also be responsible for paying for all reasonable fees and costs incurred by ApplyBoard, including legal fees, in collecting any overdue amounts or enforcing any provision of this Agreement.  Without limiting the foregoing, ApplyBoard reserves the right not to process any Application or portion thereof prior to obtaining full payment of fees from you.

  1. Interest on Late Payments.  In addition to any other rights and remedies available to ApplyBoard, ApplyBoard shall be entitled to charge interest on all outstanding amounts at the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum rate permitted by law, such interest commencing as of the due date for such payment.

  1. Taxes.  You are responsible for, and shall pay all taxes relating to this Agreement, excluding any taxes based on the net income of ApplyBoard.  Unless otherwise indicated, all amounts payable by you under this Agreement are exclusive of any tax, duty, levy, or similar government charge that may be assessed by any jurisdiction, whether based on gross revenue, the delivery, possession or use of the Services, the execution of this Agreement or otherwise.  If you are required to withhold any taxes from payments owed under this Agreement, the amount of payment due shall automatically be increased to offset such tax, so that the amount actually remitted to ApplyBoard shall equal the amount due. You shall promptly furnish ApplyBoard with copies of all official receipts evidencing payment of taxes due under or in relation to this Agreement to the appropriate taxing authority.   

5. Privacy and Confidentiality
  1. Privacy Policy.  Your personal information will be handled in accordance with ApplyBoard’s Privacy Policy.  To view ApplyBoard’s Privacy Policy, please visit the following link: https://www.applyboard.com/privacy-policy.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, ApplyBoard reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as it deems necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental authority.

  1. Storage in Other Jurisdictions.  You acknowledge that, due to the nature of the Services, information or data uploaded to the Services may be hosted on servers residing in jurisdictions other than Canada, over which ApplyBoard has no direct control.  By using the Services, you acknowledges that its information and data may become, during the period that they are hosted on such servers, subject to the laws of the jurisdiction in which those servers reside and/or to the terms of agreements respecting the hosting of data on such servers.  Although ApplyBoard has made reasonable efforts to verify that its agreements with such server providers are reasonably protective of your data, you acknowledge that ApplyBoard has no liability for any acts or omissions of third parties in relation to such servers and the data stored on them.  You therefore hereby release ApplyBoard from all liability for any governmental or third party action taken in such jurisdictions with respect to such information and data and/or the servers on which such information and data resides, and you acknowledge that it retains sole responsibility to back up and retain copies of such information and data.

6. Intellectual Property Rights
  1. Compliance with IP Laws.  You are responsible for complying with all applicable intellectual property laws in your use of the Services, and agree to indemnify, defend and hold ApplyBoard harmless from any and all claims that arise as a result of your non-compliance with intellectual property laws and/or your infringement of any intellectual property rights.

  1. Ownership. You acknowledge that the ApplyBoard website and Content is owned by ApplyBoard or its third party licensors, who retain all right, title and interest therein, and is protected by Canadian, U.S. and international copyright laws.  In addition, other intellectual property laws (including patent laws) and treaties may protect the Content and Services.  It is therefore your responsibility to fully comply with such laws in using the Services.  You do not acquire any intellectual property or other proprietary rights under this Agreement, including without limitation any right, title or interest in and to patents, copyrights, trade-marks, industrial designs, confidential information, or trade secrets, whether registered or unregistered, relating to the ApplyBoard website, the Services, or any part thereof.  Your only rights to the ApplyBoard website, the Services and any part thereof shall be those rights expressly licensed or granted to you under this Agreement.  Any rights not expressly granted under this Agreement are reserved.

ApplyBoard has no control over Institutions or any other entity granting visas, permits or other authorizations in connection with the Application; you acknowledge that the success of your Application is solely within the control of such third parties, not ApplyBoard, and therefore release ApplyBoard from all liability in relation to your Application.  Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.

8. Limitation of Liability
  1. Limitation of Liability.  The only type of damages that can be recovered against ApplyBoard arising from or related to this Agreement including without limitation in relation to the provision of the Services, shall be your direct damages, if any, arising from ApplyBoard’s gross negligence or wilful misconduct.  In no event shall the aggregate liability of ApplyBoard exceed the amount paid by you for the portion of the Services that gave rise to the claim.  APPLYBOARD SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY WHATSOEVER TO YOU OR ANY PARTY CLAIMING BY OR THROUGH YOU FOR THE ACCURACY, TIMELINESS OR CONTINUED AVAILABILITY OF THE SERVICES.  Without limiting the foregoing, your only right with respect to any problems or dissatisfaction with the Services is to discontinue the use of the Services.

  1. Exclusion of Damages.  EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED DIRECT DAMAGES SPECIFIED ABOVE, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL APPLYBOARD BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, FAILURES TO TRANSMIT OR RECEIVE ANY DATA, PROBLEMS, LOSS OR DAMAGE ASSOCIATED WITH ANY USE OF THE SOFTWARE OR SERVICES, OR OTHER PECUNIARY LOSS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT) WHETHER OR NOT SUCH DAMAGES WERE FORESEEN OR UNFORESEEN INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, EVEN IF APPLYBOARD HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.  SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

Surviving Obligations.  Termination of this Agreement for any reason shall not affect your payment obligation for any fees accruing hereunder or payments owing prior to the date of termination.  Any provision of this Agreement which expressly states that it is to continue in effect after termination or expiration of this Agreement, or which by its nature would survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement, shall do so.
