You and DriveHER each agree that all claims, controversies, and disputes between You and DriveHER, including those arising out of or related to the DriveHER Platform or this Agreement (each a “Dispute” and collectively the “Disputes”), will be resolved by binding arbitration by a single neutral arbitrator, provided, however, you and DriveHER are not precluded from asserting in small claims court any Dispute that is eligible to be brought in small claims court. BY AGREEING, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU AND DRIVEHER ARE EACH AGREEING TO FOREGO THE ABILITY TO PURSUE DISPUTES IN COURT, OTHER THAN SMALL CLAIMS COURT, INCLUDING THE ABILITY TO HAVE A JURY DECIDE DISPUTES. Unless you and DriveHER otherwise agree, the Canadian Arbitration Association (“CAA”) will arbitrate all disputes and the CAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (but excluding CAA’s Supplemental Rules for Class Arbitration) will apply, except to the extent the provisions of the CAA Consumer Arbitration Rules are different from, conflict with, and/or are inconsistent with the terms of this Section 24, in which case the provisions of this Section 24 will prevail and must be followed as written.

BY AGREEING, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU AND DRIVEHER ARE EACH AGREEING TO FORGO THE ABILITY TO PROCEED IN CLASS ACTIONS, CONSOLIDATED ACTIONS, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTIONS, EITHER AS A REPRESENTATIVE OF OR MEMBER OF A CLASS. Notwithstanding any CAA rule to the contrary, or any other provision in arbitration rules chosen by agreement to govern the arbitration, you and DriveHER each agree that any challenges to the validity or enforceability of the class action waiver in this Section will be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction, and not by an arbitrator. If any court or arbitrator holds that the class action waiver in this Section is unenforceable, then the Dispute must be brought in an appropriate provincial court, and not in arbitration. If any portion of this arbitration provision other than the class action waiver shall be found to be unenforceable, that portion will be severed, and the rest of this arbitration provision will remain in effect. A copy of the CAA Arbitration Rules is available at https://canadianarbitrationassociation.ca/arbitration/ and is incorporated herein by this reference as though set forth in full. You and DriveHER each agree that the location of the arbitration or court where the Dispute will be resolved will be the largest city in your province within 100 miles of where you live. You and DriveHER each also agree that for arbitrated Disputes, the arbitrator’s award will be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. An arbitrator may award, on an individual basis, any relief authorized by law, including injunctive or declaratory relief and reasonable attorneys’ fees. You and DriveHER each are responsible for your or its respective costs relating to the arbitration, except that DriveHER will pay all arbitration administrative or filing fees, including the arbitrator fees. To begin arbitration, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your Dispute to the contact listed for DriveHER in Section 21. You may opt out of the agreement to arbitrate in this Section by mailing DriveHER written notice of your election to opt out at 100 Dundas St East Unit 502 Mississauga ON L5A1W5 email@example.com or 416-993-5534 within 45 days of registering for your Account, expressly indicating that you are opting out of the agreement to arbitrate in this Section and including your name and address, provided that the election will not be effective until it is received by DriveHER. Your election to opt-out of the agreement to arbitrate in this Section will not otherwise affect your rights and obligations under this Agreement.
- If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be illegal, invalid, unconscionable or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect. You and DriveHER intend that the provisions of this Agreement be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. Accordingly, you and DriveHER agree that if any provision is deemed unenforceable, where possible, it will be modified to the extent necessary to make it enforceable, which may include its deletion.
Section titles are only for convenience and have no legal or contractual significance. Any list of examples following “including” or “e.g.,” is illustrative and not exhaustive, unless qualified by terms like “only” or “solely.” DriveHER may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, at any time, with or without notice to you. You may not assign, transfer, or sublicense your rights, if any, in your Account, in the DriveHER Platform, or under this Agreement. If, at any time, DriveHER fails to respond to a breach of this Agreement by you or others, that failure will not waive DriveHER’s right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. A waiver will only be binding on DriveHER if it is in writing and signed by DriveHER. This Agreement (including Additional Terms and any referenced terms or policies) constitutes the entire agreement between you and DriveHER with respect to your Account and the DriveHER Platform. You warrant that, in entering into this Agreement, you have not relied on nor will you have any right or remedy based upon any statement, representation, warranty or assurance other than those expressly stated in this Agreement. The preceding sentence will not limit or exclude any liability that cannot be limited or excluded under applicable law. No one other than you and DriveHER, or DriveHER’s successors and permitted assigns, will have any right to enforce this Agreement.
