User pursuant to this Section 16 must be given in writing and as required by Section 26. Any termination
under this Section 16 is effective as of the time of notice deemed to have been given under Section 26.
16.2 Termination or Suspension by FanDine. FanDine may, in its sole discretion, terminate the User’s
Account or the User’s use of the Services at any time for any reason, including but not limited to the
User’s violation of the Terms, death of the User or personal bankruptcy of the User. FanDine reserves the
right to change, suspend or discontinue any or all aspects of the Services at any time without prior notice
to the User and without reason or explanation. If the User’s Account is suspended or terminated, FanDine may
prohibit the User from regaining access to the User’s Account or from creating a new Account. The User
agrees that FanDine shall not be liable for any suspension or termination of User’s Account or for any
effects thereof. FanDine must not provide notice to the User of FanDine’s termination of the User’s Account
or the User’s use of the Services.
16.3 Other Termination. The Agreement will terminate immediately if FanDine becomes bankrupt or sells or
dissolves the Services.
16.4 Effect of Termination on User Account
(a) User Termination. Any Restaurant Credits in the Account and Monetary Units in the Wallet prior to
termination of the User’s Account may become inaccessible to the User indefinitely upon termination of the
User’s Account. If the User terminates the User’s Account, the User agrees to forfeit the Restaurant Credits
in the User’s Account and Monetary Units in the Wallet. FanDine shall not be liable for the User’s loss of
Restaurant Credits or Monetary Unit upon termination of the User’s Account or for any effects thereof.
(b) FanDine Termination. If FanDine suspends or terminates the User’s Account, any Restaurant Credits in
the User’s Account and Monetary Units in the Wallet prior to suspension or termination of the User’s Account
may become inaccessible to the User indefinitely upon suspension or termination of the User’s Account.
(c) Establishment Termination. If an Establishment’s Account on the Services is suspended or terminated,
however caused, the User may be eligible to have the value of the Restaurant Credits that remain outstanding
by the User for that Establishment at the time of the termination converted into the Monetary Unit at the
following fixed exchange rate (the “Termination Exchange Rate”):
1 Restaurant Credit = 0.8 Monetary Units
The User may be eligible to have the value of the Restaurant Credits that remain outstanding by the User
converted into the Monetary Unit only for the value of the Restaurant Credits that Establishment has issued
to the User.
FanDine will convert the User’s outstanding Restaurant Credits into the Monetary Unit at the Termination
Exchange Rate only if FanDine receives the outstanding balance of Restaurant Credits in the Monetary Unit
from the Establishment at which the Restaurant Credits are redeemable (the “Funds”), pursuant to the
Establishment Terms, after the termination of the Establishment from the Services. If the Establishment does
not pay the Funds to FanDine, the Restaurant Credits outstanding by the User for the Establishment will not
be converted into the Monetary Unit and there will be no payment to the User pursuant to the termination of
the Establishment from the Services.
If an Establishment’s Account is terminated because the Establishment ceases to operate or do business,
all Restaurant Credits that remain outstanding and redeemable by the User for that Establishment will be
forfeited and cancelled.
16.5 Recourse by User. If the User is dissatisfied with the Services, Site or the Terms, the User’s sole
and exclusive remedy is to discontinue the use of the Services and Site. In such an event, the User agrees
to destroy and cease all use of all materials and intellectual property rights of FanDine obtained by the
User from the Services and Site and all copies thereof.
16.6 Survival. These provisions shall survive the termination of the Terms, however caused.
17. Force Majeure 17.1 Neither party will be liable to the other for the failure to fulfill obligations caused by
circumstances outside of its reasonable control. This clause does not apply to any of the User’s obligations
to pay charges for services provided.
18. Copyright Infringement Notices Under The Copyright Act 18.1 FanDine respects the intellectual property rights of others and require those that use the Services

work or other subject-matter may send a notice of claimed infringement to a person who provides the means of
telecommunication through which the electronic location that is the subject of the claim of infringement is

18.3 If the User believes that the User’s copyright has been or is being infringed upon by material
found in the Services, the User is required to follow the following procedure to file a notification in

(g) any other relevant information.
18.4 Upon receipt of the above written notification, FanDine shall:
(a) as soon as feasible forward the notice electronically to the person to whom the electronic location
identified by the location data specified in the notice belongs and inform the User of its forwarding or, if
applicable, of the reason why it was not possible to forward it; and
(b) retain records that will allow the identity of the person to whom the electronic location belongs to
be determined, and do so for six months beginning on the day on which the notice of claimed infringement is
received or, if the User commences proceedings relating to the claimed infringement and so notifies the
person before the end of those six months, for one year after the day on which the person receives the
notice of claimed infringement.
18.5 Note that not all unauthorized uses of copyrighted materials are infringements. The doctrine of
fair dealing under the Copyright Act may be applicable. FanDine cannot offer any legal advice. Should the
User have questions, the User must seek legal advice from a lawyer.
