Terms and Conditions
Section 1. Agreement.
(a) You (hereinafter referred to as "You", "Your", "Customer", or "Participant") agree that the terms and conditions provided in this agreement ("Agreement") govern Your participation in the FedEx Business Bonus Program ("Program"). Upon enrolment in the Program, Your participation in the Program will be activated with Your first invoice from FedEx Express under Your eligible account number, as determined by FedEx, in the month of enrolment (however, enrolment after the close of business on the third last business day of the month will be considered to be enrolment in the next month). Your acceptance of this Agreement as described above also constitutes agreement to the Program terms, as set out in this Agreement, on behalf of the entity with which You are employed or represent, if the participating account number is a business or organizational account. When used in this Agreement, the name "FedEx" shall mean and include Federal Express Canada Ltd. and any and all of its affiliate companies, any of which may exercise the rights and privileges afforded FedEx under this Agreement, but Federal Express Canada Ltd. is the sole obligor. No one is authorized to change the terms of this Agreement except FedEx.
(b) If You are not automatically enrolled in the Program, You may enrol by completing the enrolment form at fedex.ca/businessbonus. FedEx is not responsible for enrolments that are lost or misdirected. If there is any dispute as to the date that You enrolled, FedEx records will be determinative.
