Your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement also indicates your acceptance thereof on behalf of the entity which employs you or which you represent. When used in this Agreement, the term "FedEx" shall refer to Federal Express Canada Ltd., its principals, subsidiaries, branches and affiliates, any of which may exercise the rights and privileges afforded FedEx under this Agreement, but Federal Express Canada Ltd. is the sole obligor.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, You hereby authorize FedEx to release any package for which You are the recipient indicated on the air waybill upon delivery to the place designated by You in advance without obtaining a signature, as long as the package does not have a declared value greater than $100.

(b) The furnishing by FedEx of a delivery receipt showing the designated place of delivery and the release number listed shall constitute proof of delivery in accordance with Your instructions.

(d) Decisions regarding eligibility to participate in the Program are solely within the discretion of FedEx.

(b) You shall give FedEx no less than seven (7) calendar days prior written notice of termination of this Agreement or of the relocation or closing of Your business. Such written notice must provide Your FedEx account number, company name (if applicable), your address (company address if applicable) and reason for terminating this Agreement.

Section 4. Controlling Law and Severability.

This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario and the laws of Canada applicable therein, without reference to its conflicts of law provisions. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of this Agreement, or a portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent of the parties and the remainder of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect. Any cause of action arising under this Agreement must be initiated within one year after the claim or cause of action has arisen in a court of competent jurisdiction in Ontario or be barred.
