- Responsibility for Loss or Damage.
The Company’s liability for loss or damage to each delivery is limited to a value of the delivery object, where damage is at the sole discretion of delivery driver. If a delivery is lost or damaged while in the Company’s Possession, you may file a claim with the Company for reimbursement. You may only file one claim per delivery. A claim filed directly with the carrier nullifies any such claim with the Company for same delivery. For purposes hereof, an item shall be deemed to be in the “Company’s Possession” from the point the Company collects the item from you until the item reaches the end destination via one of our mailing partners. Any insurance must be purchased separately from an insurance provider.
For lost Delivery which you report, the Company will conduct an initial investigation to locate lost packages, including by contacting any third party carrier, the sender, or the recipient as necessary.
The Company shall take all reasonable efforts to resolve a claim as soon as is practical, provided that the Company shall have at least 10 business days from initial receipt of a claim to respond. Your acceptance of reimbursement for a claim (“Resolution”) will extinguish any other rights you may have for loss or damage the delivery which is subject to that claim, and if such delivery is recovered following Resolution, you acknowledge and agree that the Company has no obligation to return such delivery to you or to pay you any additional amounts with respect to such delivery, and the Company shall have the express right to reclaim or pick up such delivery from wherever the delivery is located.
At the Company’s or your election, all disputes, claims, or controversies arising out of or relating to the TERMS or the Service that are not resolved by mutual agreement may be resolved by binding arbitration. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, arbitration will be held in Montreal, Canada before a single arbitrator mutually agreed upon by the parties, arbitration must commence within forty-five (45) days of the date on which a written demand for arbitration is filed by either party. The arbitrator’s decision and award will be made and delivered within sixty (60) days of the conclusion of the arbitration and within six (6) months of the selection of the arbitrator. The arbitrator will not have the power to award damages in excess of the limitation on actual compensatory, direct damages set forth in the TERMS and may not multiply actual damages or award punitive damages or any other damages that are specifically excluded under the TERMS, and each party hereby irrevocably waives any claim to such damages. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Company agree otherwise in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may, in his or her discretion, assess costs and expenses (including the reasonable legal fees and expenses of the prevailing party) against any party to a proceeding. Any party refusing to comply with an order of the arbitrators will be liable for costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, incurred by the other party in enforcing the award. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the case of temporary or preliminary injunctive relief, any party may proceed in court without prior arbitration for the purpose of avoiding immediate and irreparable harm. The provisions of this arbitration section will be enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Notwithstanding the provisions of the introductory section above, if the Company changes this ‘Arbitration’ section after the date you first accepted these TERMS (or accepted any subsequent changes to these TERMS), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the « Date of Last Revision » date above or in the date of the Company’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between you and the Company in accordance with the provisions of this section as of the date you first accepted this TERMS (or accepted any subsequent changes to this TERMS).
