This may include asking you for additional information, asking you to take steps to verify your control over the telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, or financial accounts you identify, obtaining a credit report, or consulting other databases or sources.
When you provide us with deposit account (” Bank Account “) information to assist in the steps to verify your identity, you agree that we may initiate one or more small deposits to the Bank Account you identify (less than $1 each) via Electronic Funds Transfer (” EFT “).

During the identity verification process, we will compare personal information that you have provided (such as your name and address) to information contained in your consumer report, which a consumer reporting agency will obtain on our behalf. This information will be used to verify your identity and for no other purpose. This will appear as a soft inquiry on your credit bureau record but it is not a credit check and will not affect any credit scoring process.
If we are unable to validate your identity through the online process, you will be directed to an alternative, offline process. Provided that we are able to validate your identity in this alternative, offline process you will be able to use the Tipstoday Services.

27. Governing Law
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Canada and the Province of Ontario, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law.

In this Arbitration section:
“You” and “Your” mean you and your respective successors, assigns or agents as well as any person claiming through you, including their respective successors, assigns or agents; “we”, “us”, and “our” means Tipstoday and its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, predecessors, successors, assigns and agents as well as their respective officers, directors and employees; and “Claim” means any action, cause of action, suit, proceeding, dispute, claim, demand, or controversy whatsoever (whether based in contract, tort, intentional tort, constitution, statute, ordinance, common law or equity, whether pre-existing, present or future, and whether seeking monetary, injunctive, declaratory or any other relief) arising from or relating to this Agreement or the relationship between you and us, and includes claims that are brought as counterclaims, cross claims, third party claims, or otherwise and disputes about the validity or enforceability of this Agreement or the validity or enforceability of this Arbitration section. Any Claim between you and us shall be finally resolved by binding arbitration. The arbitration shall be administered by, at the election of either you or us, the ADR Institute of Canada, Inc. (the ” ADR Institute “) or ADR under their respective rules applicable to arbitrations. You can obtain a copy of the Rules and other information about initiating arbitration by contacting the ADR Institute at Suite 500, 234 Eglinton Avenue East, Toronto, Ontario, M4P 1K5, or at www.amic.org, or by contacting ADR Chambers at 112 Adelaide Street East, Suite 200, Toronto, Ontario, M5C 1K9, or at www.adrchambers.com
If you file a Claim, you can choose either the ADR Institute or ADR Chambers as Administrator (“Administrator “). If we file a Claim, we will make the initial selection but you can require us to use either the ADR Institute or ADR Chambers by providing us written notice within 30 days of your receipt of notice of the Claim. Claims will be arbitrated by a single, neutral arbitrator, who shall be a retired judge or a lawyer with at least ten years’ experience. We agree not to invoke our right to elect arbitration of an individual Claim filed by you in a small claims court, so long as the Claim is pending on an individual basis only in such court.
We will pay all filing and administration fees charged by the Administrator and arbitrator fees up to $1,000, and we will consider your request to pay any additional arbitration costs. If an arbitrator issues an award in our favour, you will not be required to reimburse us for any fees we have previously paid to the Administrator or for which we are responsible. If you receive an award from the arbitrator, we will reimburse you for the fees paid by you to the Administrator. Each party shall bear its own lawyer’s, expert’s and witness fees, which shall not be considered costs of arbitration; however, if a statute gives you the right to recover these fees, or fees paid to the Administrator, then these statutory rights will apply in arbitration.
Any in-person arbitration hearing will be held in the city of Toronto, Ontario. The arbitrator shall apply applicable substantive law consistent with the applicable arbitration rules, the common law and any statute governing arbitrations conducted under this Agreement, and, if requested by either party, provide written reasoned findings of fact and conclusions of law. The arbitrator shall have the power to award any relief authorized under applicable law. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and not subject to appeal on any grounds. Judgment on any award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in and enforced by any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Neither you nor we shall have the right to participate as a representative or member of any class of claimants in arbitration, and you and we further agree that claims of third parties shall not be joined in any arbitration between you and us, without the express written consent of both you and us. The validity and effect of this paragraph shall be determined exclusively by a court, and not by the Administrator or any arbitrator. The arbitrator shall have no power to arbitrate any Claims on a class action basis or Claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public, other Users, or other persons similarly situated.
If any portion of this Arbitration section is deemed invalid or unenforceable for any reason, it shall not invalidate the remaining portions of this provision. However, if the section precluding class actions is deemed invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part, then this entire Arbitration section shall be deemed invalid and unenforceable. The terms of this Arbitration section will prevail if there is any conflict between the Rules and this provision.
THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION, THEY ARE WAIVING ALL RIGHTS TO A TRIAL BY COURT OR JURY AS A MEANS OF RESOLVING ANY DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT. THEY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ARBITRATION WILL LIMIT THEIR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHTS TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO CONDUCT FULL DISCOVERY, AND THE RIGHT TO APPEAL (EXCEPT AS PERMITTED UNDER ANY STATUTE GOVERNING ARBITRATIONS CONDUCTED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT).
The parties acknowledge and agree that this arbitration agreement shall be governed by various provincial statutes governing arbitrations. This Arbitration section shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties acknowledge that the provisions of this section 34 shall not apply to users of the Tipstoday Services residing and domiciled in the province of Quebec. The parties also agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the Province of Ontario, City of Toronto any dispute arising out of this Agreement and involving a user of the Tipstoday Services residing and domiciled in the Province of Quebec.
If any provision of this Agreement is held to be unlawful, void, invalid or otherwise unenforceable, then that provision will be limited or eliminated from this Agreement to the minimum extent required, and the remaining provisions will remain valid and enforceable.
This Agreement and any rights granted hereunder may not be transferred or assigned by you without our prior written consent which may be withheld in its sole discretion, but may be assigned by us without restriction. Any assignment attempted to be made in violation of this provision shall be void and of no effect.
Upon termination or expiry of this Agreement, any provision which, by its nature or express terms should survive, will survive such termination or expiration as applied to Transfers and the relationship prior to such termination or expiration, including, but not limited to all Sections.
33. Entire Agreement
This Agreement is the entire agreement between you and Tipstoday relating to the subject matter hereof and will not be modified except in writing, signed by both parties, or by a change to this Agreement made by Tipstoday.
