  9. Accuracy. The Website is provided for educational and informational purposes only and should not be interpreted as a recommendation for any specific third party product or service or course of action. The Website is not intended to be used as, or as a substitute for, professional advice. The information on the Website is believed to be reliable at the time it is posted.

  14. Linked Sites — 3rd party. The Canadian Centre may provide links to third party websites which are provided for your convenience. The Canadian Centre does not endorse or take responsibility for the accuracy or appropriateness of the information, data, opinions, advice, statements, content, hyper-links, and information contained on those third party websites and is not liable for any issues arising from your use of those third party websites. Access to third party linked websites is at your own risk. In providing links to third party websites, the Canadian Centre is in no way acting as a publisher or disseminator of the material contained on those third party websites and does not seek to monitor or control such websites. A link to a third party website should not be construed to mean that the Canadian Centre is affiliated or associated with same. The mention of another party or its product or service on the Website should not be construed as an endorsement of that party or its product or service. Further, when you click on links and/or banners that take you to a third party website, you will be subject to the policies of the third party website and any applicable agreement posted thereon. The Canadian Centre will not be responsible for the actions of third parties. Whenever you are interacting with any third party website, you should carefully read its posted policies and agreements.
  15. Linked Sites — Canadian Centre. The Website may provide links to other websites owned and operated by the Canadian Centre (including but not limited to: Cybertip.ca, Missingkids.ca, Kidsintheknow.ca, or NeedHelpNow.ca). Your access to each of those linked websites is subject to the terms and conditions of use, and the privacy policy, posted on such website. This is because each linked website is aimed at a particular audience and may include functionality or features that differ from this Website.
  16. Monitoring. The Canadian Centre has no obligation to monitor the Website. You agree that the Canadian Centre has the right to monitor the Website from time to time and to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any law, regulation or other governmental request, to operate the Website properly, to protect itself and/or other users of the Website, or where it suspects abuse, misuse and/or unlawful activity.
  17. General Provisions. This Agreement cannot be assigned or transferred, in whole or in part, by you. This Agreement will endure to the benefit of and be binding upon each of us and our respective heirs, successors and permitted assigns. This Agreement will be governed by, and construed under, the laws of the Province of Manitoba and the laws of Canada applicable therein. In the event of a dispute, we agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the Manitoba courts. We expressly exclude the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and The Sale of Goods Act (Manitoba), as amended, replaced or re-enacted from time to time. This Website, and these terms and conditions of use, are made available in both French and in English and each are equally valid. If you do not speak or understand French, then each party agrees that this Agreement and all documents relating thereto be drawn-up in English. Nous avons demandé que cette convention ainsi que tous les documents qui s'y rattachent soient rédigés en anglais. This Agreement constitutes and contains the entire agreement between you and the Canadian Centre with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes any prior oral or written agreements. In the event that any provision of this Agreement is held by a court or a tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the remaining portion of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
