• You shall not make any representations, warranties, or guarantees to anyone on behalf of D‑TECK. 
• You shall not advertise, promote, or suggest in any manner that the services you provide to individuals or organizations in connection with the D‑TECK products are provided by or sponsored by D‑TECK,

Law and Forum for Disputes

The laws of the Province of Quebec shall apply to the interpretation of these Terms notwithstanding any conflict of law provisions. All proceedings relating to the D‑TECK product or to these Terms shall be brought before the courts of the Province of Quebec. [The courts in some jurisdictions will not apply Quebec law to some types of disputes. If you reside in one of those jurisdictions, then where Quebec law is excluded from applying, the laws of your jurisdiction will apply to such disputes related to these Terms. Otherwise, you agree that the laws of Quebec will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms. Similarly, if the courts in your jurisdiction will not permit you to consent to the jurisdiction and venue of the courts in Quebec, Canada, then your local jurisdiction and venue will apply to such disputes related to these Terms.

In our sole discretion, we may assign these Terms, including, following or in the event of a business transaction. Headings are for reference purposes only and do not limit the scope or extent of such Section. Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. We do not guarantee we will take action against all breaches of these Terms.
