If Client believes that Keep has made withdrawals from Deposit Account(s) in an amount that is greater than the Specified Percentage of Client’s total revenue for the month in which such withdrawals were made (“Excessive Withdrawal”), it is the sole responsibility of Client to deliver written notice to Keep of any purported discrepancy (“Notice of Excessive Withdrawal”) within ten (10) days of the end of the month in which the Excessive Withdrawal was made. 

11.2. Notice of Excessive Withdrawal must be accompanied by evidence satisfactory to Keep of the Excessive Withdrawal, including, but not limited to, bank statements, sales receipts and Client records.

12. Due diligence and conditions 


12.2 By agreeing to these checks, the Client is not considering it a breach of their privacy or that of any associated third parties.

12.3 Onsite checks might verify that the Client's business operations match their claims. These checks will be done after informing the Client in advance and during regular business hours.

12.4 If the Client isn't a publicly traded entity, Keep can examine the background and finances of main stakeholders owning more than 10% of the Client. Such checks are again vital to provide these Extension Services.

12.5 Client must provide any necessary documents or permissions for these checks. If the Client or the Guarantors don't provide requested info promptly, Keep will assume any owed amount with respect to the Principal Amount has been wrongly retained by the Client. If this happens, the Client will have to immediately pay the entire owed amount.

12.6 Keep can visit the Client's site to verify the information shared by the Client. This can be during the application process or at any time during the agreement's term. If Keep visits due to non-payment or any other breach by the Client, a $500 fee will be charged for each visit. This fee covers Keep’s losses and is not a penalty.

Instead, Keep is purchasing the Future Receivables at a discount. There are no scheduled payments for Client and no repayment term for Client. Keep is not an investor in the business of Client. Client is responsible to account for the transactions made herein in accordance with the provisions hereof and acknowledges that Client’s method of accounting, if in contradiction with the terms hereof, shall not change in any way the nature of the transactions contemplated in this agreement nor bind Keep in any way to account in the same manner. Notwithstanding the foregoing and for greater certainty, should it be determined by an applicable authority that the transaction contemplated by this Agreement constitutes a loan and should it be determined that any provision of this Agreement would oblige Client to make any payment which is construed by an applicable authority to be an amount which would be prohibited by applicable law, then notwithstanding such provision, such amount shall be deemed to have been adjusted nunc pro tunc to the maximum amount, as the case may be, as would not be so prohibited by applicable law, such adjustment to be affected by reducing the Purchased Receivables under this Agreement until such amount becomes equal to the Purchase Price. Notwithstanding the potential reduction contemplated in this sec. 22, nothing herein constitutes agreement that the transactions contemplated by this Agreement are loans or are intended to be loans.

23. Costs and Expenses 

Keep shall be entitled to recover from Client any and all reasonable costs and legal fees (on a substantial indemnity basis) associated with and/or resulting from the enforcement of its rights and remedies hereunder or at law.

24. Entire Agreement

This Agreement contains the entire understanding of the parties hereto and supersedes all prior negotiations, whether oral or written. No changes to this Agreement shall be valid or enforceable, unless made by both parties in writing, in which case such change shall come to force of the date of the later party signing the change

25. Severability

Should any term or provision of this Agreement be deemed invalid, illegal or unenforceable, then such invalid, illegal or unenforceable term or provision shall be null and void, and all other terms and provisions of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect as though such invalid, illegal or unenforceable term or provision had never been a part hereof.

26. Governing Law

This Agreement shall be governed by and to be construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario and the laws of Canada applicable therein without regard to principles of conflicts of law and treated in all respects as an Ontario contract. The parties to this Agreement hereby irrevocably and unconditionally attorn to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the Province of Ontario.

The liability of the Guarantor under this Guarantee is unlimited. The Guarantor’s liability under this Guarantee shall arise immediately upon written demand for payment from Keep to the Guarantor. 

The Guarantor agrees that his/her/their obligations under this Guarantee are irrevocable, continuing, absolute and unconditional, and shall not be discharged or impaired or otherwise affected by, and the Guarantor hereby irrevocably waives, any defences to enforcement he or she may have (now or in the future) by reason of:

  1. any illegality, invalidity or unenforceability of any Obligation, the Agreement or any documents delivered pursuant thereto for any reason whatsoever;
  2. any change in, or variation of, the Obligations or any other obligation of any party under the Agreement or any other documents delivered pursuant thereto including, without limitation, any increase in the Obligations, any change in the interest or fees payable, any renewal, extension, amendment, rescission, waiver, release, discharge, indulgence, compromise, arrangement or other variation in connection with the Obligations, the Agreement or any other documents delivered pursuant thereto; 
  3. any taking, exchange, substitution, variation, release, impairment, subordination or non-perfection of any security or collateral for the Obligations, or any taking, release, impairment, amendment, waiver or other modification of any guarantee of the Obligations;

The Guarantor further acknowledges and agrees as follows:

  1. The Guarantor hereby unconditionally and irrevocably waives any right to revoke this Guarantee and acknowledges that this Guarantee is continuing in nature, shall guarantee any ultimate balance owing to Keep, and applies to all presently existing and future Obligations, until the complete, irrevocable and indefeasible payment and satisfaction in full of the Obligations.
  2. This Guarantee is a guarantee of payment and performance and not of collection. Keep shall not be obligated to enforce or exhaust its remedies against the Client or under the Agreement before proceeding to enforce this Guarantee. The liability of the Guarantor to make payment under this Guarantee shall arise immediately upon delivery to the Guarantor of a written demand for payment by Keep.
  3. This Guarantee is a direct guarantee and independent of the obligations of the Client to Keep. Keep may resort to the Guarantor for payment and performance of the Obligations whether or not Keep shall have resorted to any of its collateral or shall have proceeded against the Client or any other guarantors with respect to the Obligations. Keep may, at Keep’s option, proceed against the Guarantor and the Client, jointly and severally, or against the Guarantor only without having obtained a judgment against the Client.

  7. The Guarantor (i) has received independent legal advice (”ILA”) from their own lawyer at their own cost with respect to the terms of this Guarantee before its execution; or (ii) has been given the opportunity and encouraged to receive ILA, but has declined to do so (in their sole discretion).
  8. The Guarantor has read this Guarantee, understands it and agrees to be bound by its terms and conditions.

The Guarantor waives and shall not exercise any rights that it may acquire by way of subrogation, contribution, reimbursement or indemnification for payments made under this Guarantee until all Obligations shall have been paid and discharged in full. Subject to the foregoing, upon full and final payment and performance of all Obligations, the Guarantor shall be subrogated to the rights of Keep against the Client, and Keep agrees to take such steps as the Guarantor may reasonably request, at the Guarantor’s expense, to give effect to such subrogation.

It is agreed that the Guarantor shall be liable to Keep in respect of all debts and liabilities, stated to be owing to Keep by Client under this Agreement with respect to such debts and liabilities, notwithstanding whether such agreement or any provision thereof is invalid, void, illegal, or unenforceable and notwithstanding whether such agreement was properly completed, entered into or authorized. The Guarantor shall indemnify and save Keep harmless from any losses which may arise by virtue of any debts and liabilities stated to be owing to Keep by Client, being or becoming for any reason whatsoever in whole or in part (a) void, voidable, null, ultra vires, illegal, invalid, ineffective or otherwise unenforceable in accordance with its terms, or (b) released or discharged by operation of law (all of the foregoing being an "Indemnifiable Circumstance"). For greater certainty, the losses shall include the amount of all debts and liabilities owing to Keep by Client which would have been payable by Client but for the Indemnifiable Circumstance.

It is further agreed that Keep without the consent of the Guarantor and without exonerating in whole or in part the Guarantor may grant time, renewals, extensions, indulgences, releases and discharges to, may abstain from taking, perfecting or realizing upon security from, may release security to, may accept compositions from, and may otherwise change the terms of any of the debts and liabilities hereby guaranteed and otherwise deal with Client as Keep may see fit.

This Guarantee is unlimited, absolute and without condition, and is binding upon Guarantor, his/her/their heirs, legal representatives, executors, liquidators, administrators, personal representatives, successors and assigns. Guarantor waives any and all rights to require Keep or any other Indemnitee (as defined in the Agreement) to proceed against Client before taking action against him/her/them. This Guarantee shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario and for the purpose of legal proceedings this contract shall be deemed to have been made in the said province and to be performed there, and the courts of that province shall have non-exclusive jurisdiction over all disputes which may arise under this contract, provided always that nothing herein contained shall prevent Keep from proceeding at its election against the Guarantor in the courts of any other province or country. If any provision of this Guarantee are determined to be unenforceable, prohibited, invalid or illegal, it shall be severed from this Guarantee solely to the extent of such unenforceability, prohibition, invalidity or illegality and the remainder of such provision and the remainder of this Guarantee shall be unaffected thereby. 

All present and future indebtedness and liability of the Client to the Guarantor is hereby subordinated and postponed in right of payment to the prior payment in full of the Obligations, as confirmed in writing by Keep. Until the date upon which the Obligations have been repaid in full, as confirmed in writing by Keep, the Guarantor agrees that the Client cannot pay and the Guarantor cannot receive any payment in cash, property or security, by set-off or otherwise, owing and which may hereafter come owing by the Client to the Guarantor, including on account of the intercompany loans from the Guarantor to the Client. Any amounts received by the Guarantor in violation of this clause shall be held by the Guarantor in trust for the benefit of Keep and forthwith upon receipt paid over to Keep without in any way reducing, lessening or limiting the obligations of the Guarantor under this Guarantee. This subordination and postponement is independent of the Guarantee and shall remain in force until all Obligations shall have been paid and discharged in full.


To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Keep may apply any amounts owing to, or sums standing to the credit of, the Guarantor to the payment when due of any amounts owing by the Guarantor under this Guarantee.

This Guarantee will be governed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario and the applicable laws of Canada. In the event of a dispute, you agree that the courts in the Province of Ontario shall be competent to hear such dispute and you agree to be bound by any judgment of that court.

The Guarantor acknowledges and agrees that Keep may make a claim or demand payment hereunder notwithstanding any limitation period regarding such claim or demand set forth in the Limitations Act, 2002 (Ontario) or under any other applicable law with similar effect and, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, any limitations periods set forth in such act or applicable law are hereby explicitly excluded or, if excluding such limitations periods is not permitted by such act or applicable law, are hereby extended to the maximum limitation period permitted by such act or applicable law. For greater certainty, the Guarantor acknowledges and agrees that this Guarantee is a "business agreement" as defined under Section 22 of the Limitations Act, 2002 (Ontario).

The rights and remedies of Keep under this Guarantee are cumulative and are in addition to and not in substitution for any other rights and remedies available at law, or in equity or otherwise.

This Guarantee constitutes the sole and entire agreement of the Guarantor and Keep with respect to the subject matter contained herein and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations and warranties, both written and oral, with respect to such subject matter. No amendment or waiver of any provision of this Guarantee shall be valid and binding unless it is in writing and signed, in the case of an amendment, by both parties, or in the case of a waiver, by the party against which the waiver is to be effective. 

The Guarantor acknowledges having read the terms of the Agreement and this Guarantee, and Guarantor’s agreement to the Keep Platform Agreement, Cardholder Agreement and Statement Extension Agreement shall serve as confirmation that Guarantor understands all of the terms and provisions of the Agreement and this Guarantee. Rights of Keep hereunder against the Guarantor are, if applicable, joint and several.
