GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION

These Terms including all issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation, and enforceability of these Terms, or the rights and obligations of you or Chipotle in connection with your use of the Services or your Submitted Content, and with the exception of the arbitration provision below, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the province of Nova Scotia, without giving effect to the conflict of laws rules thereof.

Subject to the arbitration provision below, any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Website and under these Terms will be instituted in the courts of the Province of Ontario and/or the Federal Court of Canada, and each party irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts in any such action or proceeding. You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to the venue of such courts.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION, ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

To the extent permitted by applicable law, you agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen or may arise relating in any way to or arising out of these Terms against Chipotle Entities will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this section. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND WILL HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL IMPACT ON HOW CLAIMS YOU AND WE HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER ARE RESOLVED.

You agree that whenever you have a disagreement with Chipotle or any Chipotle Entity arising out of, connected to, or in any way related to these Terms, you will send a written notice to Chipotle (“Demand”). You agree that the requirements of this Dispute Resolution section will apply even to disagreements that may have arisen before you accepted these Terms. You must send the Demand to the following address (the “Notice Address”): Chipotle Mexican Grill Canada Corp., ATTN: Legal Department, 900-1959 Upper Water St., Halifax NS B3J 2X2, Canada. You agree that you will not take any legal action, including filing a lawsuit or demanding arbitration, until 10 business days after you send a Demand. If the disagreement stated in the Demand is not resolved to your satisfaction within 10 business days after it is received, the Demand (1) will be resolved exclusively by arbitration, without right of appeal, administered by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) and conducted by a sole arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules (as may be amended) and as modified by the agreement to arbitrate in this section; (2) the arbitration will be held in Toronto, Ontario; (3) the arbitrator’s decision shall be controlled by these Terms and any of the other agreements referenced herein that the applicable user may have entered into; (4) this arbitration provision shall be governed by the law of the province of Nova Scotia; (5) there shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis; arbitration can decide only your individual claims; the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated; (6) the arbitrator shall not have the power to award punitive damages against you or any Chipotle Entity; (7) in the event that the administrative fees and deposits that must be paid to initiate arbitration against any Chipotle Entity exceed CAD $150, and you are unable (or not required under the rules of AAA) to pay any fees and deposits that exceed this amount, Chipotle agrees to pay them on your behalf, subject to ultimate allocation by the arbitrator; and (8) with the exception of subpart (5) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the rules of AAA, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (5) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor any affected Chipotle Entity shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. If, for any reason, the AAA is unable or unwilling to conduct the arbitration, you may file your case with any generally recognized arbitral institution in Canada.

This arbitration provision limits the ability of you and Chipotle to litigate claims in court and you and Chipotle each agree to waive your respective rights to a jury trial or a provincial or federal judge. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow these Terms as a court would. You agree that you will not file any lawsuit against Chipotle in any provincial or federal court. You agree that if you do sue in provincial or federal court, and Chipotle brings a successful motion to compel arbitration, you must pay all fees and costs incurred by Chipotle in court, including reasonable attorney’s fees. 

CLASS ACTION WAIVER

To the extent permitted by applicable law, you agree that you will not file a class action or collective action against Chipotle, and that you will not participate in a class action or collective action against them. You agree that you will not join your claims to those of any other person.

MISCELLANEOUS

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Chipotle and govern your use of the Services and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals whether electronic, oral or written, between you and Chipotle with respect to the Services. Both you and Chipotle acknowledge and agree that no partnership is formed and neither you nor Chipotle has the power or the authority to obligate or bind the other.

The failure of Chipotle to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ original intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms shall remain in full force and effect.

The failure of Chipotle to comply with these Terms for any reason, including without limitation, because of an act of God, war, fire, riot, terrorism, earthquake, actions of federal, provincial or local governmental authorities, or for any other reason beyond the reasonable control of Chipotle shall not be deemed a breach of this agreement. If Chipotle fails to act with respect to your breach or anyone else’s breach on any occasion, Chipotle is not waiving its right to act with respect to future or similar breaches.

The headings in these Terms are for your convenience and reference. These headings do not limit or affect this agreement.

If any provision of these Terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

BINDING AGREEMENT

DISPUTE RESOLUTION, ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

You agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen or may arise relating in any way to or arising out of these Terms will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Dispute Resolution section. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND WILL HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL IMPACT ON HOW CLAIMS YOU AND WE HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER ARE RESOLVED.

You agree that whenever you have a disagreement with Chipotle arising out of, connected to, or in any way related to these Terms, you will send a written notice to Chipotle (“Demand”). You agree that the requirements of this Dispute Resolution section will apply even to disagreements that may have arisen before you accepted these Terms. You must send the Demand to the following address (the “Notice Address”): Legal Department, Chipotle Mexican Grill c/o CMG Strategy Co., LLC, 1401 Wynkoop Street, Suite 500, Denver, CO 80202. You agree that you will not take any legal action, including filing a lawsuit or demanding arbitration, until 20 business days after you send a Demand. If the disagreement stated in the Demand is not resolved to your satisfaction within 10 business days after it is received, and you intend on taking legal action, you agree that you will file a demand for arbitration with the American Arbitration Association (the “Arbitrator”). This arbitration provision limits the ability of you and Chipotle to litigate claims in court and you and Chipotle each agree to waive your respective rights to a jury trial or a state or federal judge. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow these Terms as a court would. You agree that you will not file any lawsuit against Chipotle in any state or federal court. You agree that if you do sue in state or federal court, and Chipotle brings a successful motion to compel arbitration, you must pay all fees and costs incurred by Chipotle in court, including reasonable attorney’s fees. For any such filing of a demand for arbitration, you must effect proper service under the rules of the Arbitrator and notice to the Notice Address may not be sufficient. If, for any reason, the American Arbitration Association is unable to conduct the arbitration, you may file your case with any national arbitration company. The Arbitrator shall apply the AAA Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedure effective September 15, 2005 (as may be amended) and as modified by the agreement to arbitrate in this Dispute Resolution section. You agree that the Arbitrator will have sole and exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute you have with Chipotle. The Federal Arbitration Act allows for the enforcement of arbitration agreements and governs the interpretation and enforcement of the agreement to arbitrate.

You agree that you will not file a class action or collective action against Chipotle, and that you will not participate in a class action or collective action against them. You agree that you will not join your claims to those of any other person. Notwithstanding any other provision in these Terms, if this class action waiver is invalidated, then the agreement to arbitrate is null and void, as though it were never entered into, and any arbitration dispute at that time will be dismissed without prejudice and may be refiled in a court. Under no circumstances do you or Chipotle agree to class or collective procedures in arbitration or the joinder of claims in arbitration. Chipotle agrees that we will submit all disputes with you to arbitration before the Arbitrator.

MISCELLANEOUS

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Chipotle and govern your use of the Services and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals whether electronic, oral or written, between you and Chipotle with respect to the Services. Both you and Chipotle acknowledge and agree that no partnership is formed and neither you nor Chipotle has the power or the authority to obligate or bind the other.

The failure of Chipotle to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ original intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms shall remain in full force and effect.

The failure of Chipotle to comply with these Terms because of an act of God, war, fire, riot, terrorism, earthquake, actions of federal, state, or local governmental authorities, or for any other reason beyond the reasonable control of Chipotle shall not be deemed a breach of this agreement. If Chipotle fails to act with respect to your breach or anyone else’s breach on any occasion, Chipotle is not waiving its right to act with respect to future or similar breaches.

The headings in these Terms are for your convenience and reference. These headings do not limit or affect this agreement.

If any provision of these Terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
