This document sets out the terms and conditions of use of software and applications offered by nventive Inc. (“nventive”) (collectively and individually the “App”). The app may include without limitation UADO.
Any user of the App is deemed to have read, accepted and recognized the validity of the terms set out below, and undertakes to respect them and be bound by them. If a user of the App does not accept these terms and conditions, they must stop using the App. nventive may, at any moment and without prior notice, modify these terms and conditions. The users of the App are asked to check regularly if the terms and conditions have been modified. The users are deemed to have accepted any modifications to the terms and conditions if they continue to use the App following the publication of the modifications.
These terms and conditions form the full set of rights and obligations between nventive and any user of the App, and replace any terms or prior provision relating to the use of the App. No verbal or written declaration from an employee or director of nventive, or any other person, may modify or substitute these terms and conditions.
The App is managed and fed from a computer located in the province of Quebec, Canada. The content and use of the App are governed by the applicable laws of Quebec and Canada. These terms and conditions, as well as any dispute or misunderstanding resulting from their application, must be interpreted in accordance with these laws, In the case that any part of these terms and conditions were held to be unlawful, null or unenforceable, this part would be deemed to be divisible from all other provisions of these terms and conditions and would thus not affect the validity or enforceability of these other provisions, which would be interpreted without making reference to the removed section. Any litigation resulting from or associated to the use of the App or to these terms and conditions shall be subjected to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Quebec or a federal Canadian court, in the judicial district of Montreal, despite any potential application of the principle of conflicting laws.
Some jurisdictions do not allow terms and conditions to be governed by the laws of a foreign jurisdiction. Accordingly, applicable laws of Quebec may not apply to you.
The App is accessible through the use of the Internet and in standard Internet formats. nventive reserves the right to modify these formats at all times and it is the obligation of the user to procure, at their cost, access to the Internet as well as any hardware and software required to use and access the App.
