11.About these Terms
We may modify these Terms or any additional terms that apply to the Website for any reason, for example, to reflect changes to the law or changes to our Website. You should look at the Terms regularly and the “Last Updated” date at the beginning of these Terms. We’ll use reasonable efforts to give you notice of these modifications, such as posting notice of modifications to these Terms on this web page, through the Website, or via email.

If there is a conflict between these Terms and any additional terms for the Website, the additional terms will control for that conflict.
These Terms control the relationship between Zefiro and you. They do not create any third-party beneficiary rights. If you do not comply with these Terms, and we do not take action right away, this doesn’t mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as taking action in the future). If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.
The laws of Canada and British Columbia, excluding its conflict of laws rules, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these terms or the Website.
You may not assign or delegate your rights or obligations relating to these terms or your account for the Website without our prior written consent. We may assign these terms or assign or delegate any of our rights or obligations at any time.

Without limiting your waiver and release in Section 7, you agree to the following:
a. Purpose. Any and all Disputes (as defined below) involving you and Zefiro will be resolved through individual arbitration. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and there is less discovery and appellate review than in court. This Section 13 (the "Arbitration Provision") shall be broadly interpreted. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, this Section 13 does not apply to an action by either party to enjoin the infringement or misuse of its intellectual property rights, including copyright, trademark, patent or trade secret rights.
b. Definitions. The term "Dispute" means any claim or controversy related to the Website or the Software, including but not limited to any and all: (1) claims for relief and theories of liability, whether based in contract, tort, fraud, negligence, statute, regulation, ordinance, or otherwise; (2) claims that arose before these Terms or any prior agreement; (3) claims that arise after the expiration or termination of these Terms; and (4) claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class. As used in this Arbitration Provision, "Zefiro" means Zefiro and any of its predecessors, successors, assigns, parents, subsidiaries and affiliated companies and each of their respective officers, directors, employees and agents, and “you” means you and any users or beneficiaries of your access to the Website or the Software.
c. Initiation of Arbitration Proceeding/Selection of Arbitrator. The party initiating the arbitration proceeding may open a case with JAMS, formerly Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc., (“JAMS”) by visiting its website (www.jamsadr.com) or calling its toll-free number (1-800-352-5267). You may deliver any required or desired notice to Zefiro by mail to Unit 2630 – 1075 West Georgia, Vancouver BC, V6E 3C9.
d. Right to Sue in Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding anything in this Arbitration Provision to the contrary, either you or Zefiro may bring an individual action in a small claims court in the area where you access the Website if the claim is not aggregated with the claim of any other person and if the amount in controversy is properly within the jurisdiction of the small claims court.
e. Arbitration Procedures. This Arbitration Provision shall be governed by the federal laws of Canada. Arbitrations shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “JAMS Rules”) as modified by the version of this Arbitration Provision that is in effect when you notify Zefiro about your Dispute. You can obtain the JAMS Rules from the JAMS by visiting its website (www.jamsadr.com) or calling its toll-free number (1-800-352-5267). If there is a conflict between this Arbitration Provision and the rest of these Terms, this Arbitration Provision shall govern. If there is a conflict between this Arbitration Provision and the JAMS rules, this Arbitration Provision shall govern. If JAMS will not administer a proceeding under this Arbitration Provision as written, the parties shall agree on a substitute arbitration organization. If the parties cannot agree, the parties shall mutually petition a court of appropriate jurisdiction to appoint an arbitration organization that will administer a proceeding under this Arbitration Provision as written applying the JAMS Rules. A single arbitrator will resolve the Dispute. Unless you and Zefiro agree otherwise, any arbitration hearing will take place in Vancouver, Canada. The arbitrator will honor claims of privilege recognized by law and will take reasonable steps to protect customer account information and other confidential or proprietary information. The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision that explains the arbitrator’s essential findings and conclusions. The arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties only if necessary for purposes of enforcing the arbitrator’s award. An arbitrator’s award that has been fully satisfied shall not be entered in any court.
f. Waiver of Class Actions and Collective Relief. THERE SHALL BE NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY CLAIMS TO BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON A CLASS ACTION, JOINT OR CONSOLIDATED BASIS OR ON BASES INVOLVING CLAIMS BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC (SUCH AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL), OTHER SUBSCRIBERS, OR OTHER PERSONS. THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF WARRANTED BY THAT INDIVIDUAL PARTY’S CLAIM. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING.
g. Arbitration Fees and Costs. If your claim seeks more than CAD $75,000 in the aggregate, the payment of the JAMS’s fees and costs will be governed by the JAMS Rules. If your claims seek less than CAD $75,000 in the aggregate, the payment of the JAMS’s fees and costs will be Zefiro’s responsibility. You may hire an attorney to represent you in arbitration. You are responsible for your attorneys’ fees and additional costs and may only recover your attorneys’ fees and costs in the arbitration to the extent that you could in court if the arbitration is decided in your favor. Notwithstanding anything in this Arbitration Provision to the contrary, Zefiro will pay all fees and costs that it is required by law to pay.
h. Severability and Waiver of Jury Trial. If any part of subsection (f) of this Arbitration Provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, the entire Arbitration provision will be unenforceable and the Dispute will be decided by a court. WHETHER IN COURT OR IN ARBITRATION, YOU AND ZEFIRO AGREE TO WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW. If any other clause in this Arbitration Provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Arbitration Provision and the remainder of this Arbitration Provision will be given full force and effect.
i. Continuation. This Arbitration Provision will survive the termination or expiration of these Terms.

The information and materials contained in the Website, and the terms of the access to and use of such information and materials, are subject to change without notice. This Website does not constitute an offering or solicitation to sell securities in any jurisdiction.
This Website contains certain statements that may be deemed “forward-looking statements” with respect to Zefiro within the meaning of applicable securities laws, including statements with respect to Zefiro’s future operational plans, the timing of its activities, proposed capital expenditures, Zefiro’s ability to successfully obtain all regulatory approvals and permits to commence and conduct proposed operations and environmental risks, among others. Forward-looking statements are statements that are not historical facts and are generally, but not always, identified by the words “expects”, “plans”, “anticipates”, “believes”, “intends”, “estimates”, “projects”, “potential” and similar expressions, or that events or conditions “will”, “would”, “may”, “could” or “should” occur.
Although Zefiro believes the expectations expressed in such forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, such statements are not guarantees of future performance, are subject to risks and uncertainties, and actual results or realities may differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Such material risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, Zefiro’s ability to raise sufficient capital to fund its operations going forward, difficulties in identifying, obtaining and permitting suitable sites for new projects, permitting and other regulatory issues, evolution in the carbon market and global policy developments, changes in generally accepted types of carbon reduction projects and the validation, registration and verification of projects that generate carbon credits, carbon trading becoming obsolete, changes in general economic conditions or financial markets, the inherent hazards associated with Zefiro’s business, changes in environmental and other laws or regulations that could have an impact on Zefiro’s operations, dependence on key management personnel and general competition in the evolving carbon market.Although Zefiro has attempted to identify factors that would cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those disclosed in the forward-looking statements or information, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. Also, many of the factors are beyond the control of Zefiro. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements or information. The forward-looking information is made as of the date included herein, and Zefiro assumes no obligation to publicly update or revise such forward-looking information. Forward-looking statements are based on the reasonable beliefs, estimates and opinions of Zefiro’s management on the date the statements are made. However, except as required by law, Zefiro undertakes no obligation to update these forward-looking statements in the event that management’s beliefs, estimates or opinions, or other factors should change. The forward-looking information contained within the Website is expressly qualified in its entirety by this cautionary state.
