GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION
The Site and its content are administered by Les Producteurs de lait du Québec from its offices located in the Province of Quebec, Canada. The Site is intended for residents of the Province of Quebec. Consequently, the Site and its content are governed and interpreted exclusively in accordance with the laws of the Province of Quebec and the laws of Canada applicable in that province.
Access to and use of the Site are deemed to have been performed in the Province of Quebec and you expressly and irrevocably acknowledge the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the Province of Quebec sitting in and for the judicial district of Longueuil with regard to the Site, its use and its content.
Any person who uses the Site expressly and irrevocably waives any objection based on the absence of territorial jurisdiction or any claim based on the notion of forum non conveniens.
On the other hand, it is incumbent on any person who accesses the Site from a place located in a territory other than the Province of Quebec to verify and ensure, particularly with his own legal advisors, that he observes the applicable laws of the place from which the Site is used. Access to and use of the Site are authorized only in the countries or territories where all of the stipulations made in these conditions are applicable and have full effect.
OBSERVANCE OF THE APPLICABLE LAWS
Any person who accesses or uses the Site warrants to Les Producteurs de lait du Québec that he is not using the Site for purposes prohibited by the law and undertakes in this regard to observe all the applicable local, national and international laws.
The fact that a condition is declared null and void, invalid or otherwise inapplicable by a competent court in no way affects the validity of the other provisions.
Les Producteurs de lait du Québec’s default in insisting strict compliance or in ensuring compliance with every provision hereof in no way constitutes a waiver of any provision or right whatsoever.
Only the French version of these conditions is the official version and it prevails over any other version.
