We shall notify you of any of these changes to features if we are legally required to do so. Some of our Services are subject to additional terms and conditions ("Additional Terms"), which are posted separately from these terms but are incorporated and form a part of the Agreement if you decide to use or access those features. If there is a conflict between applicable Additional Terms and these terms, the Additional Terms will control.

The credit score range ("Credit Score Range") provided through this platform provider is provided by Trans Union of Canada, Inc. ("TransUnion").
The availability of the Credit Score Range is subject to the discretion of this platform provider. The Credit Score Range is only available if TransUnion can match your personal information with your credit file. If TransUnion cannot match you to its credit database or is otherwise unable to generate your credit score, you will not be able to access your Credit Score Range until such time as you have built sufficient credit history.
The Credit Score Range provided is based on a model created by TransUnion. A credit score predicts credit risk. Specifically, it measures the probability that a person will pay his or her debts on time. There are many different credit scores in the marketplace based on different models with different scoring ranges and lenders use a variety of different credit scores to make credit decisions. The Credit Score Range provided hereunder is for educational/informational purposes only and is not intended for use by lenders. The Credit Score Range provided here may not be based on the same score used by your lenders or other commercial users to make credit decisions about you. The Credit Score Range can only evaluate the account information that appears on your TransUnion consumer credit report at a specific point in time. Accounts not reported to, subsequently deleted or amended from your TransUnion consumer credit report will not be reflected in your Credit Score Range. Your provider does not maintain your Credit Score Range and is not able to make any changes to it. TransUnion cannot initiate disputes on your behalf; you must do so yourself so please visit our website at www.transunion.ca for further details. TransUnion is responsible to correct inaccurate or outdated information in your credit report.
Any analysis and estimates we provide as part of our Services are for illustrative and informational purposes only. Our analysis and estimates are based on certain assumptions and use only the data we have. Our analysis and estimates are neither endorsed by, nor commissioned by, any of our marketing partners. The methodology we use to determine which offers, analysis, or other information is presented or highlighted is proprietary and we may elect to consider, ignore, emphasize, or de-emphasize certain factors in our sole and absolute discretion.
With respect to offers from our marketing partners, we do not guarantee that you will be presented with offers for any particular types of products or services or that you will meet the approval criteria for any particular offer. It is always your choice whether to apply for a product or service offered by our marketing partners and we will never submit an application for a product or service to a marketing partner on your behalf without your consent.

In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Credsii in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, you and Credsii agree that every dispute arising in connection with the Agreement will be finally resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the Agreement, whether based in contract, tort, extra-contractual liability, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of the Agreement. The arbitrator also has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT BY ENTERING INTO THE AGREEMENT, YOU AND CREDSII ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
Despite the provisions of Section 10.1, you and us both agree that nothing in the Agreement will be deemed to waive, preclude or otherwise limit the right of either of us to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court within its jurisdictional limits; (b) file a complaint with the applicable federal, provincial, territorial, or local agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration; or (d) to file a suit in a court of law solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of our Services or address an intellectual property infringement claim.
All disputes arising out of or in connection with this agreement, or in respect of any legal relationship associated with or derived from this agreement, will be finally resolved by arbitration under the Arbitration Rules of the ADR Institute of Canada, Inc. (the "ADR Rules"), except as otherwise set out in this Agreement. The language of the arbitration will be English.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other by certified mail ("Notice"). Credsii's address for Notice is: Credsii Inc., 300-192 Dundas Street, London, Ontario, Canada N6A 1G7 Attention: Legal Department. The Notice must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). You and Credsii agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if you and Credsii do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or us may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Credsii must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If, after finding in your favor in any respect on the merits of your claim, the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of Credsii's last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected, Credsii will pay you the amount awarded by the arbitrator or fifteen thousand Canadian dollars ($15,000), whichever is greater. The arbitration proceedings, including any exchanged materials, shall be confidential and you and Credsii agree to use reasonable efforts to streamline the proceedings, including discovery, consistent with the objectives of efficient dispute resolution.
If you commence arbitration in accordance with the Agreement, Credsii will reimburse you for your payment of the commencement fee, unless your claim is for more than ten thousand Canadian dollars ($10,000), in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the ADR Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in London, Ontario, Canada, but if the claim is for $10,000 Canadian dollars or less, or as otherwise required, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (a) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (b) through anon-appearance based telephone hearing; or (c) by an in-person hearing as established by the ADR Rules in the jurisdiction of your registered account address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of the claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, then the payment of all fees will be governed by the ADR Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse Credsii for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the ADR Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits.
YOU AND CREDSII AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR A CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
Further, unless both you and Credsii agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
If Credsii makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to Credsii's address for Notice), you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to Credsii's address for Notice, in which case your account with Credsii will be immediately terminated but this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the amendments you reject, will survive.
If any provision of this Section 10 is unlawful, void, or unenforceable for any reason, then that provision will be given effect to the greatest extent possible and the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Section 10.6 is found to be unenforceable or if the entirety of this Section 10 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 10 will be null and void and, in that case, the parties agree that the jurisdiction and venue described in Section 12.1 will govern any action arising out of or related to the Agreement.
The Agreement is effective while you complete the credit score range process and continue to receive information from Credsii, and will continue until you you discontinue all use of our Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any section of the Agreement that by its nature is intended to survive termination of the Agreement or your use or access to our Services or our Content will survive such termination.
If you decide you want to cease using the services, please contact email@example.com.
To the extent not prohibited by applicable laws, the Agreement is governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario, excluding conflicts of law provisions, and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein. To the extent not prohibited by applicable law, all claims arising out of or in any way related to the Agreement or our Services will be submitted to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the court of competent jurisdiction in the City of London, Ontario, and you and Credsii submit to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
Credsii's failure to enforce any of its rights or act with respect to a breach of by you or others of the Agreement does not constitute a waiver of any rights and will not limit Credsii's rights with respect to that breach or any subsequent breaches. No waiver by Credsii of any of the provisions in the Agreement will be of any force or effect unless made in writing and signed by a duly authorized officer of Credsii.
Credsii may assign the Agreement to any party at any time without notice to you. You may not assign your rights under the Agreement, by operation of law or otherwise, without our consent.
If any provision or portion of a provision of this Agreement is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect for any reason, then that provision will be given effect to the greatest extent possible and the invalidity or unenforceability of that provision or portion of provision shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remainder of this Agreement. Nothing in the Agreement shall affect any non-waivable statutory rights or remedies that apply to you.
The titles and annotations contained in these terms are inserted only as a matter of convenience and have no legal or contractual effect. The Agreement will not be construed against Credsii because we drafted it.
