1. Description and Use of Our Website
We provide Visitors and Registered Users with access to the Website as described below.
Visitors. Visitors, as the term implies, are people who do not register with us, but want to explore the Website. No login is required for Visitors. Visitors can: (i) purchase products and services through the Website; (ii) view all publicly-available content on the Website; and (iii) e-mail us.
Registered Users. Registered Users can do all the things that Visitors can do, and: (i) access exclusive content available only to Registered Users; (ii) create, access, manage, and update their own personal accounts on the Website; (iii) post comments and other content on the Website (collectively, “Registered User Content”); (iv) sign up for our various programs; (v) sign up for alerts and other notifications; and (vi) become part of the Stemvy community.

3. Sign-in Name; Password; Unique Identifiers
If you wish to become a Registered User, you will be prompted to create an account, which includes a sign-in name (“Sign-In Name”), a password (“Password”), and additional information that will assist in authenticating your identity when you log-in in the future (“Unique Identifiers”). When creating your account, you must provide true, accurate, current, and complete information. Each Sign-In Name and corresponding Password can be used by only one Registered User. You are solely responsible for the confidentiality and use of your Sign-In Name, Password, and Unique Identifiers, as well as for any use, misuse, or communications entered or payments made through the Website using one or more of them. You will promptly inform us of any need to deactivate a Password or Sign-In Name, or change any Unique Identifier. We reserve the right to delete or change your Password, Sign-In Name, or Unique Identifier at any time and for any reason and shall have no liability to you for any loss or damage caused by such action.
5. Fees and Payment
As consideration for any purchase you make on the Website, you shall pay Stemvy all applicable fees and taxes. Our third-party payment processors shall authorize your credit card, bank account, or other approved payment facility you provided during the registration process for the full payment of the purchase price, transaction fees, and applicable taxes, and you hereby consent to the same. All payments will be charged and made in Canadian dollars.
You must provide current, complete, and accurate billing and credit card information. You must promptly update all billing information (such as billing address, card number, and expiration date) to keep your account current, complete, and accurate, and you must promptly contact us if your credit card is lost or stolen, or if you become aware of a potential breach of account security (such as an unauthorized disclosure or use of your Sign-In Name or Password). You hereby authorize Stemvy to obtain or determine updated or replacement expiration dates for your credit card in the event that the credit card you provided us expires. We reserve the right to charge any renewal card issued to you to the same extent as the expired card. If payment is not received from your credit card issuer, you hereby agree to pay all amounts due upon demand. You agree to pay all costs of collection, including attorney’s fees and costs, on any outstanding balance. In certain instances, the issuer of your credit card may charge you a foreign transaction fee or related charges, which you will be responsible to pay. You are advised to check with your bank and credit card issuer for details.
Our policies regarding shipping and returns can be found on the Website and are hereby incorporated by reference.

15. Equitable Relief
You acknowledge and agree that in the event of a breach or threatened violation of our intellectual property rights and confidential and proprietary information by you, we will suffer irreparable harm and will therefore be entitled to injunctive relief to enforce this Agreement. We may, without waiving any other remedies under this Agreement, seek from any court having jurisdiction any interim, equitable, provisional, or injunctive relief that is necessary to protect our rights and property pending the outcome of the arbitration referenced above. You hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to the personal and subject matter jurisdiction of the federal and state courts in the Province of British Columbia for purposes of any such action by us.

Our failure to act on or enforce any provision of the Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of that provision or any other provision in this Agreement. No waiver shall be effective against us unless made in writing, and no such waiver shall be construed as a waiver in any other or subsequent instance. Except as expressly agreed by us and you in writing, this Agreement constitutes the entire Agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter, and supersedes all previous or contemporaneous agreements, whether written or oral, between the parties with respect to the subject matter. The section headings are provided merely for convenience and shall not be given any legal import. This Agreement will inure to the benefit of our successors, assigns, licensees, and sublicensees.
