- Mandatory Arbitration
Please read this provision carefully. It requires that any and all claims must be resolved by binding arbitration or in small claims court, and it prevents you from pursuing a class action or similar proceeding in any forum. These limitations apply to any claims against Hunthotels, its subsidiaries or affiliates, any hotels service providers or companies offering products or services through the Site.
In arbitration, a dispute is resolved by an arbitrator instead of a judge or jury. The arbitrator’s decision will generally be final and binding, with no right of appeal. Arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited than court procedures.
- By using this Site, you, any Third-party, and Hunthotels agree that any Claim, including claims regarding the applicability or validity of this arbitration provision, shall be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and conducted before a single arbitrator pursuant to the then applicable Rules and Procedures established by AAA (“Rules and Procedures”), except that, pursuant to subsection (e) below, under no circumstances may any claim be brought or arbitrated as a class action or proceed on a basis involving claims brought on a purported representative capacity (either on behalf of the general public or other users or persons, except that the arbitrator shall have the authority to award public injunctive relief where applicable).
- As an exception to arbitration, you, any Third-party, and Hunthotels retain the right to pursue in a small claims court located in the federal judicial district that includes you or the Third-party’s billing address at the time of the Claim, any Claim that is within the court’s jurisdiction and proceeds on an individual basis. All Claims you or a Third-party bring against Hunthotels, its subsidiaries or affiliates, or any hotels service providers or companies offering products or services through the Site must be resolved in accordance with this Disputes and Arbitration Section. All Claims filed or brought contrary to this Section shall be considered improperly filed and void.
- If you decide to seek arbitration, you must first send, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”) addressed to: Legal Department, Marketing Wind Global LLC DBA HuntHotels, 8407 Central Ave 2nd Fl Newark CA 94560. The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the Claim; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If Hunthotels and you, or Hunthotels and any Third-party, do not reach an agreement to resolve the Claim within 60 days after the Notice is received, you, or the Third-party, may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you, any Third-party, or Hunthotels is entitled. The arbitration shall be held at a location determined by AAA pursuant to the Rules and Procedures, or at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon.
- To the extent that any Claim is held not to be subject to arbitration and proceeds in a Court other than small claims court, such Claim shall be filed only in the United States District Court for California or, if there is no federal jurisdiction over the action, in the courts of the State of California located in Newark CA 94560
- You hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any such Claim that is not subject to the arbitration provision and not pursued in small claims court, and agree that any such claim shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action (as described more fully in section I.A.2.d below). You further agree that any and all Claims or other matters asserted in such dispute, whether based upon contract, tort, statute, or otherwise, shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict of laws provisions that would result in the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction.
- You and any Third-party further agree that no proceeding against Hunthotels, its affiliates, or any hotels service providers or companies offering products or services through the Site (under this provision or otherwise) may proceed as a class action’ or proceed on a basis involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity (either on behalf of the general public or other users or persons). However, where applicable, the arbitrator shall have the authority to award equitable or injunctive relief which necessarily may affect the rights and obligations of persons not party to the arbitration (i.e. public injunctive relief).
- Upon motion of one or more affected parties, the arbitrator may, in its discretion, consolidate more than one arbitration with one or more related arbitrations involving similar claims in an effort to ensure that the arbitration process is an efficient, timely and cost-effective alternative to litigation. All parties will retain the right to request an individualized hearing. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the arbitrator may not preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding that would affect the rights of any individual, unless that individual has actually initiated and is currently maintaining a demand for arbitration pursuant to this Agreement.
- In order to initiate arbitration, each party will be responsible for paying the filing fees required by the AAA. In the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to costs of litigation, Hunthotels will pay as much of your filing fee in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation. For any arbitration involving Claims that together seek damages that exceed $25,000, if you, or any Third-party, prevail in the arbitration of any Claim against Hunthotels, Hunthotels will reimburse such prevailing party for any fees or costs the prevailing party paid to AAA in connection with the arbitration.
- If you prevail in the arbitration, the arbitrator may award you statutory damages and/or your reasonable attorney fees and expenses, to the extent that the arbitrator believes them to be necessary or mandated by law. Any dispute regarding attorney’s fees to be paid pursuant to this paragraph will be decided by the arbitrator who decided the underlying Claim. If you or the Third-party do not prevail on the claim or prevail but are awarded an amount less than or equal to Hunthotels’s last written settlement offer to you, Hunthotels will pay only the amount of the award, not the minimum recovery.
- Notwithstanding any other provision of law or any of the Rules and Procedures established by AAA which may be to the contrary, Hunthotels will not be entitled to seek reimbursement of its attorney’s fees for any Claim the arbitrator finds to be non-frivolous.
- With the exception of sub-part (d) above (the class action waiver), if any part of this arbitration provision is held to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures established by AAA, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (d) above (the class action waiver) is held to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor any Third-party, nor Hunthotels shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute.
- If you or any Third-party do not choose to accept this binding arbitration provision, you or such third-party must notify Hunthotels in writing by certified mail within thirty (30) days of your purchase or before you begin to use the services purchased on this Site, whichever date is sooner. Such notice shall be sent to the notice address defined in subsection (b), above. If you so notify us by that time that you do not accept the binding arbitration provision, you and any such third-party may not continue to purchase services or products on this Site unless and until Hunthotels notifies you or such third-party otherwise. Hunthotels shall have the right to prohibit your and such Third-party’s future purchase of services or products on this Site.
