8. Accuracy of Information

Although reasonable care has been taken to ensure the accuracy of the information on the Website, all Website content is provided on an 'as is' basis, without any warranties of any kind, express or implied. Please note that all models, plans, sketches, illustrations and/or displays utilized and/or referred to on the Website (including all descriptions, dimensions and/or representations indicated thereon or implied thereby) are merely reflective or indicative of the proposed real estate projects, or various aspects thereof (and/or any other phases with respect thereto, if applicable) as conceived or intended and in effect as at the time of their respective creation, and are therefore subject to one or more changes being made or implemented with respect thereto from time to time (whether significant or otherwise), without any notice thereof being given to anyone visiting or accessing the Website or otherwise, and without any liability being incurred by Tridel thereby. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you are hereby advised that:

  1. the height, colour, size, shape, texture, dimensions, specifications and/or design of the:
    1. exterior facade of any proposed real estate project(s) and/or any future phase(s) with respect thereto;
    2. interior and exterior common element areas, including all roadways, walkways, ramps, driveway exits and/or landscaped areas; and
    3. recreational facilities and amenities, if specifically provided for in any disclosure statement;
  2. the layout, shape and/or size of any building footprint, and/or the location, size and height of any building(s) in relation to any other present or future structure(s);
  3. the total number of dwelling, parking, locker and/or service units within any proposed condominium, and/or the total number of levels comprising any proposed condominium;
  4. the number, location, design and/or size of the windows within any dwelling unit(s);
  5. the patio, balcony, front/rear yard, or terrace area(s) appurtenant to any dwelling unit(s), if applicable; and/or
  6. the prices and/or terms of purchase of any dwelling unit(s) and ancillary unit(s);

are subject to change, and may be varied at any time and from time to time, without notice and without any liability incurred by Tridel thereby.

Furthermore, dimensions of floor plans, artists drawing and computer renderings are approximate only. Dwelling units are generally measured to the outside of all exterior, corridor and stairwell walls, and to the centre line of all party walls separating one dwelling unit from another. For more information on the method of calculating the floor area of any unit, reference should be made to Builder Bulletin No. 22 published by the Ontario New Home Warranty Program. Actual useable floor space may vary from any stated or represented floor area or gross floor area, and the extent of the actual or useable living space or net floor area within the confines of a unit may vary from any represented square footage or floor area measurement(s) made by or on behalf of the particular vendor selling such unit. Floor area measurements of dwelling units within condominium projects are generally calculated based on the middle floor of the condominium building for each suite type, such that units on lower floors may have less floor space due to thicker structural members, mechanical rooms, etc., while units on higher floors may have more floor space. Ceiling heights of dwelling units are measured from the upper surface of the concrete floor slab to the underside surface of the concrete ceiling slab. However, where ceiling bulkheads are installed within any unit, and/or where dropped ceilings are required (in areas such as foyers, hallways, closets, laundry rooms, storage rooms, bathrooms, powder rooms and/or kitchens), then the ceiling height of such unit will be less than what was represented.

Content on the Website is for informational purposes only, and is not intended to provide specific legal, financial or other similar advice, and should accordingly not be relied upon in that regard.

In no event will Tridel and/or any of the directors, officers, shareholders, employees or agents of any of the companies comprising "Tridel", be liable for any damages whatsoever (including, without limitation, damages resulting from lost profits, loss of prospective economic advantage, lost data or business interruption) arising out of the use, inability to use, or the results of use of the Website, any websites linked to the Website, or the content contained on any or all such websites, whether based on warranty, contract, tort or any other legal theory and whether or not advised of the possibility of such damages, nor for any claim by another party/or parties.
