Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current service, including the release of new Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Web Services resources, shall be subject to the WSP. In order to use the Web Services, you must obtain access to the World Wide Web, either directly or through devices that access Web-based content, and pay any service fees associated with such access. In addition, you must provide all equipment necessary to make such connection to the World Wide Web, including a computer and modem or other access device.

  5. GENERAL INFORMATION
    The WSP governs your use of the Web Services, superseding any prior agreements between you and the Lunenfeld (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the WSP). You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate or other Lunenfeld services, third-party content or third-party software. The WSP and the relationship between you and the Lunenfeld shall be governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario without regard to its conflict of law provisions. The failure of the Lunenfeld to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the WSP shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the WSP is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavour to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the WSP remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Web Services or the WSP must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. The section titles in the WSP are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
