Retention and destruction of your personal information
We will keep your personal information only for as long as it is required as required by the Canada Revenue Agency for transactions, but where your personal information is used to make a Page 4 purchase, your personal information will be kept for at least two years after that purchase is made.

Generally, in Canada, the federal legislation applies to information that crosses provincial boundaries, or where the province at issue does not have privacy legislation that has been declared to be “substantially similar” to the federal legislation. The privacy legislation in B.C., Alberta, and Quebec has been declared “substantially similar” and applies to personal information that is collected, used, disclosed, retained, and destroyed within those provinces. Other provinces may also have their own private sector privacy legislation that has not been declared substantially similar.

If any of the Content is the physical dimensions, physical characteristics or mechanical characteristics, or other information about any of the vehicles or vehicle parts such Customer or other User is selling, offering for sale, purchasing, offering to purchase, shipping, or otherwise (the Technical Content), you acknowledge and agree that such Technical Content is publicly available information and does not form part of the User Content. By way of example only and without limitation, the height, width, depth, and weight of a vehicle part entered for the purpose of shipping is Technical Content and does not form part of the User Content.
User Content is that User’s property. TPI’s only right to that User Content is the limited subscriptions to it granted in these Terms. Those subscriptions are described in Section 5 and Section 17 of these Terms.
Other than the User Content, the Services, all Content, and all software available on or in respect of the Services or used to create and operate the Services (including, without limitation, the Application and the TPI API) is the property of TPI and is protected by Canadian and international copyright laws, and all rights to the Services, such Content, and such software are expressly reserved. All trademarks, registered trademarks, product names, and company names or logos mentioned in the Services are their respective owners' property. Reference to any products, services, processes, or other information by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, supplier, or otherwise does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship, or recommendation thereof by TPI.
Your User Content is your responsibility. We have no responsibility or liability for it or any loss or damage your User Content may cause to you or other people. Although we have no obligation to do so, we have the sole discretion to remove, screen or edit without notice any User Content posted or stored on the Services, and we may do this at any time and for any reason. You are solely responsible for maintaining copies of and replacing any User Content you post or store on the Services. If you authorize third parties to access your User Content through the Services, including through the TPI API, you agree that we are permitted to provide to them the User Content, and also agree that we have no responsibility or liability for their use of such User Content.
Your Limited License of Your User Content to TPI
We do not claim any ownership interest in your User Content, but we do need the right to use your User Content to the extent necessary to operate the Site and provide the Services, now and in the future. For example, if you leave comments on the TPI social media, we need your permission to display that User Content on the Services, and we need the right to display that User Content to our other Users so that they can view that User Content.
Therefore, by posting or distributing User Content to or through the Services, you (a) grant TPI and its affiliates and subsidiaries a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable right, and license to use, display, perform, reproduce, distribute, publish, modify, adapt, translate, and create derivative works from such User Content, in the manner in and for the purposes for which the Services from time to time use such User Content; (b) represent and warrant that (i) you own and control all of the rights to the User Content that you post or otherwise distribute, or you otherwise have the lawful right to post and distribute that User Content, to or through the Services; and (ii) the use and posting or other transmission of such User Content does not violate these Terms and will not violate any rights of or cause injury to any person or entity.
If your User Content is intended for the use of other Users (for example, if you issue invoices to Customers or authorize third parties to access your User Content through the TPI API), you also grant us and our affiliates and subsidiaries a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable right and license to use such User Content to such Users for their use in connection with their use of the Services, as described in these Terms.
These rights and licenses provided to us by you are non-exclusive because you have the right to use your User Content elsewhere. These rights and license are royalty-free because we are not required to pay you for the use of your User Content on the Services. And they are transferable because we need the right to transfer these subscriptions to any successor operator of the Services. Our rights to “modify, adapt, translate, and create derivative works from” are necessary because the normal operation of the Services does this to your User Content when it processes it for use in the Services. You agree to the limitations on User Content set forth in these terms, including without limitation the restrictions on the content that you can post, upload to, transmit, distribute, store, create, or otherwise publish through the Services as set forth in Section 8.

Except as expressly permitted above, any portion of the Content without the owner's prior written permission is strictly prohibited. Any such unauthorized use of the Content will terminate the license granted in this Section, this Agreement, and your account with us Any such unauthorized use may also violate applicable laws, including without limitation copyright and trademark laws.

The license in this Section is revocable by TPI at any time.
You represent and warrant that your use of the Services and the Content will be consistent with this license and will not infringe or violate the rights of any other party or breach any contract or legal duty to any other parties, or violate any applicable law in Canada, the United States, and any country in which you are using the Services. These laws include economic sanctions. “Economic sanctions” means United Nations Security Council Resolutions requiring states to restrict or prohibit business activities with certain foreign states, individuals, and entities of those states, and non-state actors, and the laws, regulations, and policies that restrict or prohibit business activities with certain foreign states, individuals, and entities of those states, and non-state actors.
To request permission for uses of Content not included in these terms, you may contact TPI at the address set out at the bottom of these Terms. TPI may, in its sole and exclusive discretion, for any reason or for no reason, withhold its permission for any such use request.

You acknowledge and agree that we may impose or adjust the limit on the number of transactions you may send or receive through the Service; such fixed upper limits may be set by us at any time, at our discretion. If we impose such limits, we may describe them on our Site. TPI may charge additional fees for the excess. Unused API calls will not roll over to the next period.
You will not attempt to exceed or circumvent limitations on access, calls, and use of the TPI API, or otherwise use the TPI API in a manner that exceeds reasonable request volume, constitutes excessive or abusive usage, or otherwise fails to comply, or is inconsistent with any part of these Terms. TPI may monitor your use of the TPI API and, if your application(s) does or will connect the TPI API to five hundred or more systems, TPI reserves the right to limit or suspend access to the TPI API by you or your API client(s) and to contact you to discuss the volume and terms of your API calls.
We reserve the right to rate limit other functionality to prevent abuse, spam, denial-of-service attacks, or other security issues.
TPI has no responsibility to any person for any use or misuse of any Content obtained through the TPI API. If you are a Subscriber, you should consider carefully whether you wish to give an API Developer access to your Content through the TPI API. If you wish to revoke access to your Content through the TPI API, you should change your TPI access credentials or revoke authorization of the TPI API Implementation to your Content. Please contact us at [email protected] if you want assistance doing this.
Use of Interactive Areas and the Services
The Services may include discussion forums on social media, review services, or other platforms in which you or third parties may post reviews or other content, messages, materials, or other items on the Services (“Interactive Areas”). If TPI provides such Interactive Areas, you are solely responsible for your use of such Interactive Areas and use them at your own risk. User Content submitted to any public area of the Services will be considered non-confidential. You agree not to post, upload to, transmit, distribute, store, create, or otherwise publish through the Services any of the following:
- any message, data, information, text, music, sound, photos, graphics, code, or other material that is unlawful, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, indecent, lewd, suggestive, harassing, threatening, violent, threatening, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, inflammatory, fraudulent, or otherwise objectionable;
- content that would constitute, encourage, or provide instructions for a criminal offense, violate the rights of any party, or that would otherwise create liability or violate any local, state, national, or international law;
- content that may infringe or violate any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or other intellectual or proprietary right of any party;
- content that creates a false identity or misrepresents your identity or that attempts to use another person’s identity;
- content that impersonates any person or entity or otherwise misrepresents your affiliation with a person or entity or content that copies the information or identity of any other person other than you;
- content that implies or states that you are affiliated with or endorsed by TPI without our express written consent;
- content that would allow you to sell/re-sell or otherwise monetize the Services, the TPI API, or any related services or data without our express written consent;
- unsolicited promotions, political campaigning, advertising, or solicitations;
- private information of any third party, including, without limitation, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, and credit card numbers, unless that third party has expressly consented to such use;
- viruses, corrupted data, or other harmful, disruptive, or destructive code or files;
- content that is unrelated to the topic of the Interactive Area(s) in which such Content is posted;
- content that, in the sole judgment of TPI, is objectionable or which restricts or inhibits any other person from using or enjoying the Interactive Areas or the Services, or which may expose TPI or its affiliates or its users to any harm or liability of any type.
Finally, TPI has a “zero-tolerance” policy towards SPAM: you may not use the Interactive Areas or the Services generally to send commercial or other messages to any third-party if those messages are not solicited, authorized, or welcomed by the third-party, and in your use of the Services you must comply with all applicable laws, including laws that apply in any jurisdiction to SPAM and marketing practices, and with any applicable marketing association guidelines on ethical marketing practices.
Any use of the Interactive Areas or other portions of the Services in violation of the foregoing violates these Terms and may result in, among other things, termination or suspension of your rights to use the Interactive Areas and/or the Services.
Providing a Reliable and Secure Service
We take reliability and security seriously and put a great deal of effort into ensuring that our service operates all the time and that it is a secure environment for your data. We use what we believe to be “best-of-class” hosting services and security technologies and services that we believe provide you with a secure and safe environment.
However, no system is perfectly secure or reliable, the Internet is an inherently insecure medium, and the reliability of hosting services, Internet intermediaries, your Internet service provider, and other service providers cannot be assured. When you use TPI, you accept these risks, and the responsibility for choosing to use a technology that does not provide perfect security or reliability. In particular, Subscribers who enable auto-billing and choose to store the credit card information on their TPI Sellers account, accept these risks to the security of that credit card information. When storing credit card information using the TPI recurring profiles module, Subscribers acknowledge that they are aware of, and accept as satisfactory, TPI’s credit card protection procedure. Credit card data is provided by Subscribers, and they are responsible for its protection.
If a third party is authorized through your TPI account to access your User Content through the TPI API, we cannot control and are not responsible or liable for the third party's use of your User Content. 10. No Responsibility for Third-Party Services, Sites, or Content.
As a service to our users, the Site may contain links to third-party Web sites (“Third-Party Sites”) or third-party content (“Third-Party Content”) and may provide third-party services (“Third-Party Services”), including payment processors and other payment intermediaries that you may use in connection with your use of the Services. You use Third-Party Sites, Third-Party Content (together, the “Third Party Materials”), or Third-Party Services at your own risk.
TPI makes no claim or representation regarding Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Services, and provides them or links to them only as a convenience. Inclusion in the Services of Third-Party Materials does not imply TPI’ endorsement, adoption or sponsorship of, or affiliation with, such Third-Party Materials. TPI accepts no responsibility for reviewing changes or updates to, or the quality, content, policies, nature or reliability of Third-Party Materials, or Web sites linking to the Services. When you leave the Services, our terms and policies no longer govern, and when you use Third-Party Services, their terms and policies apply. You should review applicable terms and policies, including privacy and data gathering practices, of any Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Services, and should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any transaction with any third party.
The provider of Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Services is solely responsible for such Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Services, the content therein, any warranties to the extent that such warranties have not been disclaimed, any training, support or maintenance for the Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Services, and any claims that you or any other party may have relating to that Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Services or your use of them. You acknowledge that you are purchasing the license to Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Services from the provider of those Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Services; TPI is acting as agent for the provider in providing such Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Services to you; TPI is not a party to the license between you and the provider with respect to such Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Services; and TPI is not responsible for such Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Services, the content therein, or any warranties or claims that you or any other party may have relating to such Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Services or your use of them.
You acknowledge and agree that TPI and its affiliates are third party beneficiaries of the End User License Agreement for such Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Services, and that, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of the license to any such Third-Party Materials and Third-Party Services TPI will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce such license against you as a third party beneficiary thereof.
Advertisements and Promotions
TPI may run advertisements and promotions from third parties on the Services. Your business dealings or correspondence with, or participation in promotions of, advertisers other than TPI, and any terms, conditions, warranties, or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such third party. TPI is not responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings or as the result of the presence of third-party advertisers on the Services.
TPI requires your consent to use your electronically recorded signature in the Application. Your electronically recorded signature will constitute your acknowledgment that you accept the terms herein and will be used to create a legally binding agreement.
This recorded confirmation by you will constitute your signature.
Your use of the Site (including without limitation any Interactive Areas), Services, any TPI software (including without limitation, the Application and the TPI API and any TPI API Implementation), and Content, and any Third-Party materials or Third-Party Services is entirely at your own risk, and except as described in this agreement, are provided “as is.” To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, TPI, its subsidiaries and affiliates, and their Third-party Providers, licensors, distributors, or suppliers (collectively “Suppliers”) disclaim all warranties and conditions, express or implied, including any warranty or condition that the TPI Site (including without limitation any Interactive Areas), Services, any TPI software (including without limitation, the Application, and the TPI API and any TPI API Implementation), and Content, and or any Third-Party Materials or Third-Party Services are or will (a) be fit for a particular purpose, (b) be of good title, (c) be of merchantable quality; or they do not or will not interfere with or infringe or misappropriate any intellectual property rights. Furthermore, the suppliers disclaim all warranties and conditions, express or implied as to the accuracy, reliability, quality of content in or linked to the TPI Site (including without limitation any Interactive Areas), Services, any TPI software (including without limitation, the Application, and the TPI API and any TPI API Implementation), and Content. TPI, its subsidiaries and its affiliates and suppliers do not warrant that the TPI Site (including without limitation any Interactive Areas), Services, any TPI software (including without limitation, the Application and the TPI API and any TPI API Implementation), and Content is or will be secure, free from bugs, viruses, interruption, data loss, errors, theft, or destruction.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or conditions, so the above exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may have other rights that vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
TPI, its subsidiaries, affiliates, and Suppliers disclaim any representations or warranties that your use of the Services will satisfy or ensure compliance with any legal obligations or laws or regulations.
Limitation of Liability; Indemnity
You waive and shall not assert any claims or allegations of any nature whatsoever against TPI, its affiliates or subsidiaries, their sponsors, contractors, advertisers, vendors or other partners, any of their successors or assigns, or any of their respective officers, directors, agents, or employees (collectively, the “Released Parties”) arising out of or in any way relating to your use of the TPI Site (including without limitation any Interactive Areas), Services, any TPI software (including without limitation, the Application and the TPI API and any TPI API Implementation), and Content, and/or any Third-Party Materials or Third-Party Services, including, without limitation, any claims or allegations relating to infringement of proprietary rights, or allegations that any Released Party has or should indemnify, defend, or hold harmless you or any third party from any claim or allegation arising from your use or other exploitation of the TPI Site (including without limitation any Interactive Areas), Services, any TPI software (including without limitation, the Application and the TPI API and any TPI API Implementation), and Content, and/or any Third-Party Materials or Third Party Services. You use the TPI Site (including without limitation any Interactive Areas), Services, any TPI software (including without limitation, the Application and the TPI API and any TPI API Implementation), and Content, and/or any Third-Party Materials or Third-Party Services at your own risk.
Without limitation of the foregoing, neither TPI nor any other Released Party shall be liable for any direct, special, indirect, incidental, exemplary, punitive, or consequential damages, or any other damages of any kind, including but not limited to loss of use, loss of profits or loss of data, whether in an action in contract, tort (including but not limited to negligence) or otherwise, arising out of or in any way connected with the use of or inability to use the TPI Site (including without limitation any Interactive Areas), Services, any TPI software (including without limitation, the Application and the TPI API and any TPI API Implementation), and Content, and/or any Third-Party Materials or Third-Party Services, including without limitation any damages caused by or resulting from your reliance on the TPI Site (including without limitation any Interactive Areas), Services, any TPI software (including without limitation, the Application and the TPI API and any TPI API Implementation), and Content, and/or any Third-Party Materials, or Third-Party Services or other information obtained from TPI or any other Released Party or accessible via the TPI Site (including without limitation any Interactive Areas), Services, any TPI software (including without limitation, the Application and the TPI API and any TPI API Implementation), and Content, and/or any Third-Party Materials or Third-Party Services, or that result from mistakes, errors, omissions, interruptions, deletion of files or email, defects, viruses, delays in operation or transmission or any failure of performance, whether or not resulting from acts of god, communications failure, theft, destruction or unauthorized access to TPI or any other Released Party’s records, programs or services.
In no event shall the aggregate liability of TPI, whether in contract, warranty, tort (including negligence, whether active, passive, or imputed), product liability, strict liability, or other theory, arising out of or relating to the use of the TPI Site (including without limitation any Interactive Areas), Services, any TPI software (including without limitation, the Application and the TPI API and any TPI API Implementation), and Content exceed any compensation paid by you, including the Fees, for access to or use of the TPI Site (including without limitation any Interactive Areas), Services, any TPI software (including without limitation, the Application and the TPI API and any TPI API Implementation), and Content during the three months prior to the date of any claim. In no event shall TPI have or incur any liability, whether in contract, warranty, tort (including negligence, whether active, passive, or imputed), product liability, strict liability, or other theory, arising out of or relating to the use any Third-Party Materials or Third-Party Services.
You shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless TPI and the other Released Parties from any loss, damages, liabilities, costs, expenses, claims, and proceedings arising out of your use of the TPI Site (including without limitation any Interactive Areas), Services, any TPI software (including without limitation, the Application and the TPI API and any TPI API Implementation) and Content and / or any Third-Party Materials or Third-Party Services, and if you are a Subscriber, from your Customers’ use of the Services and from the use of the TPI Site (including without limitation any Interactive Areas), Services, any TPI software (including without limitation, the Application and the TPI API and any TPI API Implementation), and Content, and/or any Third-Party Materials or Third-Party Services by any person to whom you give access to your account (including staff or advisors), including any claims made by any person that any of your, and if you are a Subscriber, your Customers’, User Content infringes the rights, including the intellectual property rights, of any third party (collectively, “Indemnified Claims”). TPI reserves the right, in its sole discretion and at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any Indemnified Claims. You agree to reasonably cooperate as requested by TPI in the defense of any Indemnified Claims.
Notices that we give you (other than notice of amendment of these Terms, which is discussed in the introduction of these Terms) may be provided in any number of ways, depending on the circumstances. For example, we may email you or telephone you at the contact information you provide in your Registration Data. Or we may post a notice to Subscribers and Customers in the dashboard area of your TPI Sellers account or post the notice elsewhere on the Site. When we post notices on the Site, we post them in the area of the Site suitable to the notice. It is your responsibility to periodically review the Site for notices.
Applicable Law and Venue
The Services are controlled by TPI and operated by it from its offices in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada. You and TPI both benefit from establishing a predictable legal environment in regard to the Services. Therefore, you and TPI explicitly agree that all disputes, claims, or other matters arising from or relating to your use of the Site, the Content, or the Services will be governed by the laws of the Province of Alberta and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to these Terms.
Except where prohibited by applicable law, any claim, dispute, or controversy (whether in contract or tort, pursuant to statute or regulation, or otherwise, and whether pre-existing, present or future) involving TPI and arising out of or relating to (a) these Terms; (b) the Site, the Content, the Application, the TPI API, or the Services; (c) oral or written statements, advertisements or promotions relating to these Terms or to the Site, the Content, the Application, the TPI API, or the Services; or (d) the relationships that result from these Terms or the Site, the Content, the Application, the TPI API, or the Services (collectively, a “Claim”), will be referred to and determined by a sole arbitrator (to the exclusion of the courts). If you have a Claim, you should give written notice to arbitrate at the address specified below. If we have a Claim, we will give you notice to arbitrate at your address provided in your Registration Data. Arbitration will be conducted by one arbitrator pursuant to the commercial arbitration laws and rules in effect on the date of the notice in the Province of Alberta.
To the extent arbitration as described in the immediately preceding paragraph is prohibited by applicable law, you agree that all Claims will be heard and resolved in a court of competent subject matter jurisdiction located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. You consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts over you, stipulate to the fairness and convenience of proceeding in such courts, and covenant not to assert any objection to proceeding in such courts.
If you choose to access the Services from locations other than Alberta, you will be responsible for compliance with all local laws of such other jurisdiction, and you agree to indemnify TPI and the other Released Parties for your failure to comply with any such laws.
Termination/Modification of Subscription and Site Offerings
Notwithstanding any provision of these Terms, TPI reserves the right, without notice and in its sole discretion, without any notice or liability to you, to (a) terminate your subscription to use the Services, or any portion thereof and the rights of any third party to which you have granted access to your User Content through the TPI API; (b) block or prevent your future access to and use of all or any portion of the Services or Content and the rights of any third party to which you have granted access to your User Content through the TPI API; (c) change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the Services or Content; and (d) impose limits on the Services or Content.
Termination of Agreement
You and TPI may terminate your use of the Services, including your agreement, to these Terms at any time with 30 days written notice given. If you terminate your use of the Services, you must pay the Fees applicable for the balance of the then-current billing period. When your TPI account is terminated, your User Content will, shortly thereafter, not appear on the Services, except for User Content submitted to public areas of the Site such as the social media or product reviews, which may remain on the Site after termination. We may also retain an archival copy of your User Content after termination, and you hereby grant us a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable license to maintain such archival copy for our internal business purposes.
If these Terms expire or terminate for any reason, Sections 4, 9, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, and 19, and any representation or warranty you make in these Terms, shall survive indefinitely.
If any provision of these Terms shall be deemed 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. TPI may assign any or all of its rights hereunder to any party without your consent. You are not permitted to assign any of your rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of TPI, and any such attempted assignment will be void and unenforceable. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and TPI regarding your use of the Site, the Content, the Add-ons, and the Services, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications whether electronic, oral, or written, between you and TPI regarding your use of them.
