Bell Media helps create, develop and improve the Platforms, along with its Bell Media Providers (as defined below) and Bell Media makes the Platforms available to its customers through Bell Media’s user interface, APIs, or other integrations Bell Media designates for such purpose. The Platforms include, without limitation:
    1. Bell Analytics: Bell Media’s insights and measurement Platform (the “Bell Analytics Platform”). Bell Media’s first party data can be used to generate target audiences, data insights, and measurement services for media;
    2. Bell DSP: Bell Media’s digital demand-side platform, where Ad Inventory can be sold to a customer on the Platform (the “Bell DSP Platform”). The Bell DSP Platform is a programmatic advertising buying Platform with seat level enablement that combines Bell Media inventory and Bell data along with DSP open supply and data partners;
    3. SAM TV: Bell Media’s linear television and booking solutions for customers to create optimized advertising campaigns across a variety of formats that meet the advertisers’ objectives (the “SAM TV Platform”); and
    4. such other platforms as mutually agreed to by Bell Media and the Customer pursuant to the Platform Service Order(s).

    The Platforms may be amended or otherwise altered from time to time at Bell Media’s sole discretion.

  2. Services: The Customer may elect to use, and Bell Media or one or more of the Bell Media Providers will provide, directly or indirectly, the Services in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. Bell Media may also make Services or Service functionality available to the Customer hereunder subject to the Customer’s agreement to additional terms and conditions in the Platform Service Order(s), which may at Bell Media’s discretion be provided to the Customer through the Services (e.g., via an online click-through agreement), and the Customer hereby represents, warrants, and agrees that any acceptance by the Customer will constitute a binding and enforceable agreement between the Parties. In the event of a conflict between the terms of these Terms and Conditions and the Platform Service Order(s), the order of precedence will be as follows: (A) Platform Service Order(s), and (B) these Terms and Conditions.
  3. Bell Media Providers: Bell Media may perform its obligations under these Terms and Conditions through its Affiliates, agents, suppliers or subcontractors, including without limitation, Xandr, Inc. (collectively, the “Bell Media Providers”, and each a “Bell Media Provider”), provided that Bell Media shall not be relieved of its obligations by using the Bell Media Providers. For greater certainty, nothing in these Terms and Conditions will prevent Bell Media from delegating or subcontracting the provision of its Platforms, any Service or any part thereof to any Bell Media Provider.
  4. Data Storage: Bell Media or a Bell Media Provider may provide Services from outside Canada, and may access, process or store the Customer’s Confidential Information or Client Data outside of Canada or the United States in the course of providing the Services. The Customer acknowledges that such access, processing, and storage will comply with the security policies and security requirements of Bell Media and/or its Affiliates. The Customer may access such Bell Media security policies and requirements in accordance with Section 8(j).
  5. Changes to Service:
    1. An authorized representative of either Party may at any time and from time to time, request additions, deletions, amendments, or any other changes to a Platform Service Order, which include any changes to specifications for a Service, updates, or enhancements to Ad Inventory changes to a project plan for the Services set out in a Platform Service Order (if any); moves, adds, changes, or deletions of Services, service features, Bell Media-Provided Software; and changes to any interfaces shared between the Parties with respect to the Services (each a “Change”).
    2. Subject to (iv) below, the non-requesting Party shall respond within ten (10) business days of receipt of such request, or such reasonable time as necessary. In particular, Bell Media’s response will indicate whether it is able to comply with the request using commercially reasonable efforts, set out any anticipated modifications to the Fees, if any, and identify other modifications required to these Terms and Conditions to comply with such request. The document setting out these details is referred to as the “Change Order” and shall be in a format agreed to by the Parties.
    3. Subject to (iv) below, if the Parties agree to implement the requested Change, an authorized representative of each Party shall provide written approval of their acceptance of the Change Order. Such approval will not be unreasonably withheld by either Party. No Change will come into effect unless and until it is approved by both Parties in accordance with this Section 2(f).
    4. Each Party acknowledges that certain Changes are mandatory and chargeable because they are prescribed by Law or, in the case of Bell Media, relate to changes to Services it provides to the Customer on a non-dedicated basis or are otherwise required pursuant to Sections 5(a) or 6(e) (“Mandatory Changes”). Such Mandatory Changes must be accommodated by the other Party if technically feasible, and do not require the approval of the other Party.
    5. Disputes regarding whether a request constitutes a Change or a Mandatory Change, along with any associated pricing disputes, will be escalated and managed by the Parties in accordance with Section 13.
  6. Services to Customer Affiliates: If requested by the Customer, Bell Media will provide the Services to any agent of the Customer or a Customer Affiliate in Canada and elsewhere as agreed and listed in the applicable Platform Service Order(s) to these Terms and Conditions in accordance with and as part of these Terms and Conditions as if such Services were provided directly to the Customer. Bell Media’s provision of the Services to an agent of the Customer or a Customer Affiliate will not render it a third party beneficiary under these Terms and Conditions. Unless an agent of the Customer or a Customer Affiliate executes a separate agreement with Bell Media:
    1. the Customer will be responsible for the compliance by the agent of the Customer or a Customer Affiliate, as the case may be, with these Terms and Conditions and the applicable Platform Service Order(s), including the payment terms; and
    2. only the Customer will be entitled to enforce the rights or remedies available to the Customer or an agent of the Customer or a Customer Affiliate under these Terms and Conditions and applicable Platform Service Order(s), and Customer Affiliates will not be entitled to do so directly.

    The provision of Services to agents of the Customer or Customer Affiliates will not have the effect of increasing the aggregate limitation of liability of Bell Media.

  7. Use of Bell Media Personnel: Bell Media shall have exclusive authority for making decisions concerning the use of its personnel to provide the Services, including the right to re-assign personnel, provided that the Services continue to be rendered in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.

3. FEES; PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS; TAXES

  1. Fees: Fees payable by the Customer shall be specified in the Platform Service Order(s). Bell Media reserves the right to change the Fees from time to time in its sole direction: provided that, any Fees which apply under an existing Platform Service Order will be honoured by Bell Media unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Parties. For clarity, Bell Media may change the Fees upon the renewal of an existing Platform Service Order.
  2. Payment Terms: Payment terms will be specified in the “Payment Terms” sections of the Customer’s Platform Service Order(s) (the “Payment Terms”). The Customer’s use of the Platforms may be subject to credit limits, as determined by Bell Media in Bell Media’s sole discretion from time to time. The Customer will promptly provide Bell Media with information Bell Media reasonably requires to complete Bell Media’s payment review process. The Customer is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to Bell Media, and notifying Bell Media promptly of any changes to such information. Where technically feasible, Bell Media will deliver the invoices electronically within one business day of the invoice date. Fees and taxes are subject to a late payment charge (“Late Payment Charge”) at the rate specified in the invoice, which rate may vary from time to time, calculated from the invoice date, if Fees and taxes are not paid within thirty (30) days of the invoice date.
  3. Invoicing and Payment: In accordance with the Payment Terms, (i) Bell Media will invoice the Customer for the Customer’s use of the Services, and the Customer will pay Bell Media the invoiced amounts by the applicable payment date (such date, the “Customer Payment Date”), and (ii) Bell Media will pay the Customer amounts due for the Customer’s sale of Ad Inventory through the Services by the applicable payment date (such date, the “Bell Media Payment Date”); provided that in the event an individual payment owed to the Customer is less than fifty dollars ($50.00) or such other reasonable minimum payment threshold Bell Media sets (the “Payment Threshold”), Bell Media may elect to defer such payments (without penalty or late fee) to the next applicable Bell Media Payment Date that the individual payment due is greater than the Payment Threshold or, if such amount due has not increased in the trailing twelve month period, cancel such individual payment permanently without notice.
  4. Additional Payment Rules: Bell Media may, at Bell Media’s discretion, set off amounts owed by the Customer to Bell Media against amounts owed by Bell Media to the Customer hereunder. No Fees owed to Bell Media will be prorated if the Customer decides to cease use of a Service or these Terms and Conditions are terminated prior to the end of a payment period. The Customer shall not withhold or deduct any amounts from, or set-off amounts owed by Bell Media or a Bell Media Affiliate to the Customer against any amounts invoiced by Bell Media or a Bell Media Affiliate under these Terms and Conditions. Bell Media may revise the Payment Terms as outlined in the Platform Service Order(s). If the Customer fails to honour revised Payment Terms, Bell Media may either suspend or terminate these Terms and Conditions and/or any Platform Service Order, at its sole discretion, on thirty (30) days’ notice.
  5. Taxes: Except and solely to the extent as otherwise may be indicated by Bell Media, charges for Services do not include any taxes or government charges levied by or due to any duly authorized taxing authority and the Customer will, without offset against or deduction from amounts otherwise owed by the Customer hereunder, pay any such taxes and government charges derived from or imposed on transactions through the Services, including sales, value-added, goods and services, use, transfer, gross income based withholding, privilege, excise and other taxes and duties. The Customer must promptly provide Bell Media with completed and accurate tax forms and all other similar materials Bell Media requires (collectively all such forms and materials, “Tax Materials”). Notwithstanding anything set forth to the contrary in these Terms and Conditions, Bell Media may (i) withhold payments owed to the Customer hereunder without penalty or late fee until Bell Media has received the Customer’s Tax Materials, and (ii) deduct any applicable withholding taxes payable by the Customer from payments owed to the Customer by Bell Media hereunder as required by Law. Once Bell Media has received the Tax Materials, Bell Media will use commercially reasonable efforts to pay any amounts not paid to the Customer pursuant to the foregoing subsection (i) as soon as reasonably practicable.
  6. Audit: The Customer shall retain its book and records relating to these Terms and Conditions throughout the Term and for seven (7) years thereafter. No more than once per calendar year, Bell Media may, upon thirty (30) days’ prior written notice, audit the Customer’s books and records relating to these Terms and Conditions. The Customer must immediately pay to Bell Media any underpayment of Fees of the Customer revealed by an audit. If an audit reveals an underpayment of Fees by the Customer of more than ten percent (10%), the Customer will pay all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by Bell Media while conducting the audit.
  7. Disputed Charges: The Customer shall notify Bell Media in writing within one hundred and twenty (120) days of the date of the applicable invoice of any charges that the Customer disputes. If Bell Media determines, acting reasonably, that those charges should not have been billed or were over-billed, Bell Media will credit the Customer for those charges.

4. TERM; TERMINATION; SUSPENSION

  1. Term: These Terms and Conditions will be effective from the Effective Date and continue until the earlier of (i) notice by either Party to the other following the expiration of the last remaining Platform Service Order, or (ii) mutual agreement of the Parties to terminate these Terms and Conditions and the last remaining Platform Service Order(s), in each case unless terminated in accordance with Section 4(b) below. For certainty, notwithstanding termination of these Terms and Conditions, those provisions of these Terms and Conditions specified by Section 15(i) will survive termination in accordance with such Section. For clarity, in the event of (x) the termination of any one particular Platform Service Order by either Party or (y) the expiration of any one particular Platform Service Order, such termination or expiration shall not automatically terminate these Terms and Conditions or any other existing Platform Service Order(s) entered into between the Customer and Bell Media.

Termination: Either Party may terminate these Terms and Conditions or any schedule, exhibit, Platform Service Order, supplement or addendum immediately if the other Party is in material breach of these Terms and Conditions or such schedule, exhibit, Platform Service Order, supplement, or addendum on notice to the other Party of such breach; provided, however, that if the breach is capable of cure, the breaching Party will have thirty (30) days from the notice date to cure the breach to the non-breaching Party’s reasonable satisfaction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Bell Media breaches a material obligation in the provision of a Service, and Bell Media has not remedied that breach within thirty (30) days after receiving written notice of such default, the Customer shall only be entitled to terminate the specific Service(s) for which the breach occurred under the applicable Platform Service Order. In addition to the foregoing, either Party may terminate these Terms and Conditions or any schedule, exhibit, Platform Service Order, supplement or addendum immediately on notice to the other Party (a) in the event of a change of control of such other Party to a direct competitor, (b) if, in a Party’s good faith determination, an act or omission by the other Party materially harms the general reputation or would harm that Party’s reputation by its continued association with the other Party under these Terms and Conditions, or (c) if either Party (1) becomes insolvent or is generally unable to pay its debts as they become due, (2) files or has filed against it a petition for voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy and, in the case of involuntary bankruptcy, such petition is not dismissed within sixty (60) days, (3) makes or seeks to make a general assignment for the benefit of its creditors, or (4) applies for or consent to the appointment of a trustee, receiver or custodian for a substantial part of its property or business.

The design, installation, delivery, or implementation of the Platforms, including Data Tools, pricing information, service levels, and network design specifications shall constitute Confidential Information of Bell Media. Confidential Information excludes the Customer’s name, address, and listed telephone number and any data, documentation, or other information which is (i) in the public domain, (ii) known to the receiving Party prior to receipt thereof from the disclosing party, or (iii) available to the receiving Party on a non-confidential basis from a source other than the disclosing Party (or, in Bell Media’s case, a Bell Media Provider), if that source or its source is not in breach of any obligations of confidentiality to the disclosing Party (or, in Bell Media’s case, a Bell Media Provider); or (iv) the receiving Party can show to have been developed independently by the receiving Party without using the Confidential Information of the disclosing Party. The receiving Party agrees to take such care to protect the confidentiality of the Confidential Information as would be taken by a reasonable party to protect its own Confidential Information from disclosure subject to the exceptions set out below. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Bell Media may disclose the fact that the Customer is a customer of Bell Media, the Customer’s Service rates, the fact of the Customer’s use of Service functionality, and any material deviation of these Terms and Conditions from Bell Media’s standard terms and conditions.

  7. The Parties acknowledge that in the event any Personal Data is collected, used, or disclosed by them, it will be done so in accordance with the Law applicable to private-sector federal legislation of Canada.
  8. Bell Media acknowledges and agrees that Personal Data about the Customer’s directors, officers, employees, agents, and subcontractors or the Customer’s Clients which is collected or stored by Bell Media in the course of providing the Services (“Customer Personal Data”) constitutes Confidential Information of the Customer to which the provisions of this Section 8 apply, except to the extent such provisions are inconsistent with this Section 8(h), which prevails with respect to Customer Personal Data.

  9. De-Identified Information: The Platforms may include information derived from customer Personal Data that has been de-identified by Bell Media. The Customer will not manipulate, analyze, reverse engineer, re-identify, disaggregate, de-anonymize, combine, or attempt to alter any of the anonymity rules; access the underlying source data; or combine any of the de-identified customer or personal data available to the Customer through the Platforms, including demographic, behavioural, and location data (“De-Identified Data”) with any additional factors, data, or information, (whether derived from the De-identified Data or otherwise available to the Customer), for the purposes of attempting to re-identify any individual or creating information that presents a serious possibility it could identify an individual. The Customer will not associate or bring into the Services or the Platforms any information in a manner that may create a risk or re-identifying the De-Identified Data to an identifiable individual, either by linkage, or association, or any other manner. The Customer will not authorize or permit any of its employees, licensors, agents, subcontractors, third party providers or suppliers, or any other third party to do any of the foregoing. Without limitation, the Customer shall access and use the De-Identified Data as available only in its de-identified state and not attempt in any way to extract or create customer Personal Data from the De-Identified Data, whether alone or in combination with other data. The Customer will immediately inform Bell Media of any case of re-identification of the De-Identified Data, or any other breach of this Section, and will take all necessary measures to destroy re-identified information. Upon reasonable notice, and if requested by Bell Media, the Customer shall provide Bell Media with a certification by an officer of the Customer confirming compliance with this Section.

    Without limiting any of the foregoing, the Customer will not sell or license the De-Identified Data or access to the De-Identified Data or distribute any De-Identified Data in any manner competitive to or that may undermine the Platforms.

  10. In performing the Services, where agreed by the Parties, Bell Media will comply with the policies, processes, procedures, and standards of the Customer which are expressly set out in a Platform Service Order (the “Customer Policies”). Bell Media may comply with the Customer Policies by performing the Services in accordance with no less stringent Bell Media policies. Any changes to the Customer Policies will be handled as a Change in accordance with Section 2(f).
  11. Each Party acknowledges that any violation of the provisions of this Section 8 may cause irreparable damage or injury to the other party, the exact amount of which may be impossible to ascertain, and that, for such reason, in addition to any other remedies available to the other party, the other Party is entitled to proceed immediately to court in order to obtain, and such Party will consent to, interim, interlocutory, and final injunctive relief restraining such Party from breaching, and requiring such Party to comply with its obligations under this Section 8, without a requirement that a finding of irreparable harm or other criteria for the awarding of injunctive relief be made.

    2. Buyer-Specific. when using a Service as a Buyer: (i) provide an Ad Unit to Bell Media or configure the Ad Unit to link to digital properties (e.g., websites and applications) that (A) will, when viewed or clicked, cause the download or delivery of any software or executable code (without effective user consent), virus, or malicious or social engineering (phishing) code or features, or (B) is Prohibited Content or is otherwise obscene, deceptive, or violates or infringes upon the rights of any third party; or (ii) disclose Ad Inventory availability, volume, or pricing data obtained through the Service without authorization from the Seller, except to provide reporting to the Customer’s applicable Client(s) about their Advertising Transactions.
    3. Audit.

Any audit will occur upon reasonable advance written notice to the Customer, and will be conducted during normal business hours, in a manner designed to not unreasonably interfere with the Customer’s ordinary business operations, and no more than once in every twelve (12) month period unless Bell Media finds material noncompliance as a result of the prior audit. Any Confidential Information belonging to the Customer that is accessed or disclosed during the audit will remain the Customer’s Confidential Information (excluding Bell Media’s Confidential Information).

The Customer agrees that in order to enable the Customer to buy Ad Inventory on a different Transaction Basis than the Customer’s counterparty to an Advertising Transaction, Bell Media may translate between those Transaction Bases using any methodology Bell Media determines at its sole discretion, which methodology may incorporate hedges against the risk of translation and additional fees, and that such translation may result in differences between the amounts collected by Bell Media from the Buyer and the amounts paid out to the Seller for such Advertising Transactions.
    2.

The Customer shall maintain adequate training programs to ensure that its employees and any others acting on its behalf are aware of and adhere to these practices and procedures and comply with these Terms and Conditions. The Customer shall immediately notify Bell Media of any reasonably suspected or actual access and/or disclosure of the Platforms contrary to these Terms and Conditions (“Data Incident”) in a manner that summarizes in reasonable detail the nature and scope of the Data Incident and the corrective action already taken or to be taken by the Customer. The Customer shall promptly take all necessary corrective actions and shall cooperate fully with Bell Media in all reasonable efforts to mitigate the adverse effects of such Data Incident and to prevent its recurrence. If Bell Media reasonably determines that the Customer’s lack of response to the Data Incident is likely to have substantial adverse impact on Bell Media’s relationship with its customers or otherwise substantially harm its reputation, Bell Media may terminate these Terms and Conditions on thirty (30) days’ written notice to the Customer.
  3. Third Party Beneficiaries: Bell Media operates a marketplace for Buyers and Sellers to transact with each other. Bell Media is neither the Buyer nor the Seller in Advertising Transactions and therefore does not assume, and expressly disclaims, all liability arising from the Customer’s use of the Services except as expressly set forth herein, including but not limited to, liability arising from Ad Units, Ad Inventory, and Sites. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions shall be construed as creating any contractual relationship between Bell Media and any Seller(s) or any Customer Client(s).To facilitate direct dispute resolution between Buyers and Sellers using Bell Media’s Services, each Seller that the Customer purchases Ad Inventory from is an intended third party beneficiary of the Customer’s obligations as a Buyer hereunder (excluding payment obligations) for their Digital Advertising Transaction(s) with the Customer. The Customer agrees not to assert a defense based on lack of privity against any Seller seeking to enforce this Section 9(c). Except as set forth in Sections 7 and 9(c) there are no third party beneficiaries to these Terms and Conditions.
  4. Failure to Comply: Bell Media is not liable for any failure to provide the Services in accordance with these Terms and Conditions resulting from the Customer’s failure to comply with any of the obligations set out in these Terms and Conditions (including, but not limited to Sections 5-9) and the Platform Service Order(s). If the Customer’s failure to comply with any of the obligations in these Terms and Conditions and/or any Platform Service Order materially adversely affects Bell Media including the Services or the ability of other customers to use services from Bell Media, Bell Media may take all actions which it considers necessary to address such effect including the immediate suspension of or restriction on the use of the Services. To the extent reasonably practicable, Bell Media will provide the Customer with advance notice of any such suspension or restriction of Services under this Section 9(d). If Bell Media is unable to provide the Customer with prior notice of a suspension or restriction of the Services, Bell Media will provide the Customer with subsequent notice of the suspension or restriction as soon as is reasonably practicable in the circumstances. Further, Bell Media will use commercially reasonable efforts to: (A) limit any suspension or restriction of Services to only those Services, or portion of Services, that in Bell Media’s reasonable discretion, require suspension or restriction in order to address the material adverse effect referred to above; and (B) minimize the impact of such suspension on the overall provision of Services.

10. PURCHASING FROM THIRD PARTY AD EXCHANGES

The Customer authorizes Bell Media and grants to Bell Media all rights necessary to: (a) use the Customer’s accounts on any third party ad exchanges (i.e., an ad exchange other than that of Bell Media) that the Customer elects to use through the Services and that requires the Customer to have its own account with such exchange in order to purchase their Ad Inventory (an “Authorized Third Party Exchange”); and (b) transmit Bidding/Targeting Terms to any such Authorized Third Party Exchange. The Customer will pay, and be solely liable for, Ad Inventory that is purchased from any Authorized Third Party Exchange through the Customer’s account. The Customer will pay Bell Media separately for any applicable fees in accordance with Section 3. If the Customer purchases Ad Inventory from any third party ad exchange that is not an Authorized Third Party Exchange through the Services, the Customer will pay Bell Media the cost of such Ad Inventory plus Fees owed to Bell Media for Bell Media’s Services in accordance with the Customer’s Payment Terms. The Authorized Third Party Exchanges may be amended from time to time by Bell Media at its sole discretion.

11. MONITORING AND NETWORK MANAGEMENT

Subject to compliance with applicable Laws, Bell Media may, as part of the management of the Platforms, monitor use of the Services (electronically or otherwise) and collect or modify any transmission data as necessary to satisfy any Law or regulation or investigate any information, data, files, pictures, or content in any form, including without limitation, Ad Inventory and Ad Unit(s) or use of Services as necessary to develop, improve, or operate the Platforms or to protect the rights or property of itself or others that are directly relating to providing the Services. The Customer acknowledges that Bell Media does not own or have any control over the availability, accuracy, or any other aspect of any third party content that may be made available to or by the Customer or its Clients through the use of the Platforms.

12. FORCE MAJEURE

If there is a default or delay in a Party’s performance of its obligations under these Terms and Conditions (except for the obligation to make any payments under these Terms and Conditions) and the default or delay is caused by circumstances beyond the reasonable control of that Party including fire, flood, earthquake, elements of nature, acts of God, epidemic, pandemic, explosion, power failure, third party caused damage to network infrastructure (i.e. a cable cut), war, terrorism, revolution, civil commotion, acts of public enemies, law, order, regulation, ordinance or requirement of any government or legal body having jurisdiction, or labour unrest such as strikes, slowdowns, picketing, or boycotts, then that Party shall not be liable for that default or delay and shall be excused from further performance of the affected obligations on a daybyday basis if that Party uses commercially reasonable efforts to expeditiously remove the causes of such default or delay in its performance.

13. DISPUTE RESOLUTION

  1. If either Party has cause to believe that the other Party is not fulfilling its obligations under these Terms and Conditions or a Party raises a dispute relating to the validity, construction, meaning, performance, or effect of these Terms and Conditions or the rights and obligations of the Parties or any matter arising out of or connected with these Terms and Conditions, then the dissatisfied Party shall give written notice to the other Party of its objections and the reasons therefore. In the event that mutual agreement cannot be reached within ten (10) business days that is satisfactory to the Party raising the issue under consideration, that Party may refer the dispute to more senior management for resolution of the dispute. Senior management of both Parties will meet as soon as is reasonably possible after a dispute is referred to it, giving due regard to the nature and impact of the issue under consideration.
  2. Except as provided elsewhere in these Terms and Conditions, and subject to subsection (c) below, any controversy, dispute, or claim that is of a fundamental nature in relation to these Terms and Conditions (including the question whether any particular matter is arbitrable hereunder) which cannot be resolved in the manner set forth in paragraph (a) above, may with the mutual agreement of both Parties be settled by arbitration in accordance with the Arbitration Act of Ontario, 1991, SO 1991, c17 or any statutory modification or re-enactment thereof (the “Act”) by one arbitrator appointed in accordance with the Act and the arbitrator will sit in Toronto, unless otherwise agreed by the Parties.
  3. The Parties shall continue the performance of their respective obligations under these Terms and Conditions, including the provision of Services and payment of Fees, during the resolution of any dispute or disagreement, including during any period of arbitration, unless and until these Terms and Conditions are terminated or expire in accordance with its terms and conditions. The determination resulting from the arbitration process will be final and binding upon the Parties to the arbitration and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any such decision may be appealed to a court of competent jurisdiction based on an error of law or as expressly provided under Section 46(1) of the Act (or the equivalent section of the Quebec Civil Code, if applicable). The Parties agree that the arbitrator shall have the power to award damages, injunctive relief and reasonable solicitors’ fees and expenses to either Party in such arbitration, provided that this arbitration provision does not prevent either Party from seeking interim injunctive or other equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction.
  4. The costs of the arbitration will be borne by the Parties as may be specified in the arbitrator’s decision.
  5. Notwithstanding anything else in these Terms and Conditions, where the arbitrator conducts a hearing or otherwise receives evidence from a Party to the arbitration or their respective employees, agents, consultants, or advisors (“Advisors”), such evidence will be treated as Confidential Information of the Party on whose behalf the evidence is presented and the Advisors shall enter into a form of non-disclosure agreement in a commercially reasonable form acceptable to the disclosing Party as a precondition to receiving, reviewing or auditing any Confidential Information of the disclosing Party in the arbitration.
  6. If in a disputed matter a Party desires a remedy that an arbitrator is unable by Law to provide, that matter will be excluded from arbitration. The following additional matters will also be excluded from arbitration:
    1. a decision by either Party to terminate these Terms and Conditions for cause;
    2. any lawsuit involving third parties;
    3. intellectual property claims whether initiated by third parties or by the Parties to these Terms and Conditions; and
    4. any actions arising from an alleged breach of confidence.
  7. In the event that senior management cannot resolve a dispute and either Party declines to proceed to arbitration, then each Party will be free to pursue such other remedies as may be available.

14. COMPETITION ACT COMPLIANCE

The Customer and Bell Media agree to comply with the Competition Act (Canada) and the regulations promulgated thereunder, as such may be amended from time to time, and to establish and implement any policies or procedures required or advisable to (i) ensure compliance with the Competition Act, and (ii) prevent any inappropriate disclosure of competitively sensitive information from one Party to the other Party. For greater certainty, nothing in these Terms and Conditions or any Platform Service Order restricts or limits the discounts, promotions, rates, or other terms applied by the Customer to its customers.
