Relationship Between WHL And Users
WHL and users of the Website are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, employment or other relationship is created or is intended to be created by use of the Website.
Governing Law And Jurisdiction
The Website (excluding linked websites, if any) is administered and controlled by WHL and its affiliates, subsidiaries, officers, directors, employees or agents, and their respective heirs, successors or assigns, from its offices in the accordance with the laws of Barbados. You agree that this Agreement and use of the Website will be governed by and construed in accordance with Barbadian law, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of laws. You have accessed the Website and/or its associated services at your own risk, and remain responsible for complying with the laws of the jurisdiction within which you are located. You agree that all disputes, controversies or claims arising out of or in connection with the Website shall be submitted to and be subject to the jurisdiction of Barbados. You also agree and hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of Barbados to finally adjudicate or determine any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or in connection with the Website and you do so voluntarily. As set out in greater detail below (see "Consequences"), although Barbados is the jurisdiction for any such suit, action or proceeding arising out of or in connection with the Website or this Agreement, such arbitration will be conducted in accordance with The Arbitration Act (Manitoba), C.C.S.M. c. A120, as amended.
Local Laws, Import And Export Control
It is important to note that not all of the products, services and Content associated with the Website are available in all jurisdictions.
For example, the United States Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") has taken the position that virtually all shipments of medications imported from a Pharmacy by a United States resident will violate United States law. By placing an order for medications or services, you represent to WHL and the Pharmacy, and you shall be responsible to ensure, that the sale, delivery and shipment of the medications will not violate any import, export or other law or regulation in your home jurisdiction. The Content does not constitute an offer or solicitation to buy or sell any medication, service or information to anyone in any jurisdiction in which an offer or solicitation is not authorized or cannot legally be made or to any person to whom it is unlawful to make an offer or solicitation.
The terms and conditions applicable to any medication, service or information will be those determined at the time of providing the product, service or information. Please be aware of the laws of your jurisdiction or that otherwise apply to you in relation to any of the matters described in this Agreement. If you choose to access the Website from outside of Barbados, you do so on your own initiative and you are responsible for compliance with applicable laws. You may not use or export or re-export the Content or any copy or adaptation in violation of any applicable laws or regulations, including export laws and regulations of Barbados in force from time to time.
The Website and its associated services are intended as a business and commercial entity, and are therefore not intended for use by persons under the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which they reside. The material on the Website is owned and licensed by WHL and is intended to be viewed by users in jurisdictions where the Content or the services offered would not violate any law or regulation.
International Orders; Prices; Payment Terms; Interest
The prices for the products and services on the Website are quoted, for convenience, in United States dollars, and may be quoted in Canadian dollars or other currencies as set forth on the Website as at the time of acceptance of an order by the Pharmacy. Prices for products may be subject to change without notice. Credit terms are within the Pharmacy's sole discretion, and unless otherwise specified in the invoice, payment must be received prior to the Pharmacy’s acceptance of an order.
WHL reserves the right to suspend or terminate your account if you violate this Agreement. If your violation causes harm to others, you agree to indemnify and hold WHL harmless from and against any and all loss, damage, or expense. If any dispute arises between us regarding this Agreement or your use of the Website, it shall be resolved through good faith negotiations between the parties.
If such good faith negotiations prove unsuccessful, all such controversies, claims, or disputes shall be submitted to binding arbitration in Barbados, but heard pursuant to the law and regulations of the Province of Manitoba. More specifically, although Barbados will be the venue for the arbitration, it shall be conducted in accordance with The Arbitration Act (Manitoba), C.C.S.M. c. A120, as amended. The arbitration award shall be final and binding, and it may be confirmed and enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. Each party shall pay for all attorney fees it incurred in connection with the arbitration and shall share equally in the costs of the arbitration.
This Agreement, and any terms incorporated or referred to herein, constitute the entire agreement between WHL and you relating to your use of the Website and the subject matter therein, and supersede any prior understandings or agreements (whether electronic, oral or written) regarding the subject matter, and may not be amended or modified except in writing, or by WHL making such amendments or modifications in accordance with this Agreement.
If any part of this Agreement is deemed or determined to be unenforceable, then such part shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent necessary. The remainder of this Agreement, including any revised portion, shall remain and be in full force and effect.
The section headings contained in this Agreement are for convenience only, do not form a part of this Agreement, and no construction or inference may be derived therefrom.
WHL shall not be liable for any delay or failure in performance caused by circumstances beyond its reasonable control, including, without limitation, delays due to backorders of requested products, mail delays, customs delays or lost shipments. WHL shall not be responsible to notify you in the event of such delays. You shall be solely responsible to make other arrangements to purchase alternative products and any costs incurred in connection with such purchases, if necessary.
