This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario, Canada, without giving effect to principles of conflict of laws. The courts sitting in Ontario, Canada, shall have exclusive jurisdiction to resolve any disputes arising under this Agreement. In each case this Agreement shall be construed and enforced without regard to the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods.
Entire Agreement and Waiver
This Agreement contains the complete agreement between the Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements or understandings, whether oral or written. The failure or delay of BigDawgs to exercise any of its rights under this Agreement or upon any breach of this Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver of those rights or of the breach.
No amendments or modifications may be made to this Agreement by Customer. Customer acknowledges that this document is a living document, i.e. expected to change, and is capable of incorporation into agreements by, inter alia: acceptance of offers extended by BigDawgs. Accordingly, Customer agrees that, in the event that it enters, in any manner, into a subsequent agreement with BigDawgs, the Included Terms of that subsequent agreement shall apply to this Agreement, notwithstanding that this document has changed in the interim.
If any provision of this Agreement shall be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
Headings contained in this Agreement are for reference purposes only and shall not be used in the interpretation of this Agreement.
BigDawgs shall not be liable for any delay or failure in performance due to Force Majeure, which shall mean acts of God, earthquake, labor disputes, changes in law, regulation or government policy, riots, war, fire, epidemics, acts or omissions of vendors or suppliers, terrorism, power failures, internet interruption, transportation difficulties or other occurrences which are beyond the reasonable control of BigDawgs. In the event that BigDawgs is prevented or delayed in the performance of its obligations under this Agreement, for reasons beyond its control, such performance shall take place as soon thereafter as is reasonably possible.
Orders cannot be canceled once placed.
Pitch and Frequencies on Sound Modules
Because electronic components used in our sound modules have a variance in value (typically -5% to +5%) the sound speed and pitch playback on the modules cannot be guaranteed and can change from item to item. We also cannot guarantee the frequency output will be the same as the provided sound. For example, because most items use a small speaker, they cannot produce low frequencies (“bass”) very well.
In other words, the reproduced sound will be similar but not exact when compared to the original.
Unless otherwise expressed in writing BigDawgs retains the right to use the completed project and User Works for the purpose of competition entries, educational and training purposes, and for marketing purposes. The Customer can be given credit for usage of the project elements.
Production Leadtimes & Turnaround
Unless otherwise expressed in writing all production leadtimes and turnaround times mentioned are estimates only and NOT a guaranteed date. BigDawgs is not responsible for delays due to weather, delivery carrier factors, customer error, holiday-related delays, international customs regulations, stock shortages, or any other unforeseen factors.
Enurement and Assignment
This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective successors, permitted assigns and legal representatives, provided, however, the rights and obligations of the Customer hereunder may not be assigned, sublicensed or otherwise transferred, in whole or in part, without the prior written consent of BigDawgs, which consent may be granted or withheld by BigDawgs in its sole and absolute discretion and any purported assignment, sublicense or other transfer, without such prior written consent shall be null and void. This Agreement may be assigned by BigDawgs without notice to or consent of the Customer.
