The Terms constitute the entire agreement between each user and Craves and govern each user's use of Application, superseding any prior agreements. The Terms and the relationship between each user and Craves shall be governed by the laws of the Province of Alberta without regard to its conflict of law provisions and each party shall submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the city of Calgary, Alberta. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to these Terms. This Application is controlled and operated by Craves from its offices within Canada.

Those who choose to access this Application from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect. Nothing herein shall be deemed to create an agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchiser-franchisee relationship of any kind between Craves and any user.
