Please note that this provision does not apply to any Dispute that G C Network may have with you.

9.2 Contact Details
You can reach G C Network by visiting https://gcnetwork.net/support.

9.3 Mandatory Binding Arbitration for Your Disputes

If you are unable to satisfactorily resolve a Dispute through informal means within a total of thirty (30) days, or if G C Network, at its sole discretion, determines that informal resolution within the same timeframe is not feasible, both parties agree that either you or G C Network may request the resolution of the Dispute through final and fully binding arbitration, as per the Commercial Arbitration Act.

The party wishing to initiate arbitration under this section shall be responsible for commencing the arbitration proceeding. The International Centre for Dispute Resolution ("ICDR") will oversee the arbitration between you and G C Network, and ICDR's rules and procedures, including their Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes where applicable, will be followed. In the event of any inconsistency between these Terms and ICDR's rules and procedures, these Terms shall prevail. You can review ICDR's rules and procedures on their website at www.icdr.org or contact them at +1-212-484-4181.

It is important to understand and agree that you have the right to seek advice from independent legal counsel of your choosing regarding this and any other provision in this agreement. Furthermore, this binding arbitration provision eliminates your legal entitlement to file a lawsuit in court, request a jury trial, or participate in a class action concerning any such Dispute. Both you and G C Network explicitly agree not to attempt to consolidate any other party's arbitration or class action with the arbitration in which you are involved with G C Network. To the fullest extent permitted by law, no arbitration proceeding will be conducted on a class-action basis or employ class action procedures. Both you and G C Network further concur that each may only bring claims against the other in an individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action.

9.4 Disputes Initiated by G C Network Against You

In G C Network's exclusive discretion, it may elect to commence arbitration proceedings as previously outlined, or it may alternatively decide to promptly file a lawsuit against you. In the event of the latter, you consent to the jurisdiction of City of Coquitlam of British Columbia and accept the service of legal documents via email to the email address linked to your Account.

10.7 Jurisdiction and Applicable Law

Any dispute or claim arising from or pertaining to this agreement shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the Province of British Columbia, irrespective of any choice or conflict of laws principles.
