1. How it Works.
1.1. The Service allows: (a) Listing Users to make available times, capacity, price and related information at their Venues(s) accessible by the Service via information inputted by the Listing User directly into the Service and via Company’s application programming interface (“Company API”) pursuant to and in accordance with all applicable terms that we may require for Listing Users to agree to for use of the Company API from time to time; and (b) Customers to search and reserve available Venues (a “Reservation”). In response to a Customer’s online request for a Reservation, Company contacts the Venue’s computerized database of reservations. The availability of Reservations is determined at the time of Customer’s query and based on information provided to Company by a Listing User. Once a Reservation is made by Customer through the Service, Company will provide confirmation of the Reservation by email or other electronic messages as has been agreed to by Customer. By using the Service, Customer agrees to receive Reservation confirmations, updates, modifications and/or cancellations by email or other electronic messages. After making a Reservation, the Customer can then communicate with each such Listing User regarding the details of a potential transaction between them, which may include a requirement that the Customer accept a Venue Agreement (as defined below in Section 2.1). Note that use of the Service is open to the general public, and the Company does not screen in any manner any Service users. Company makes no representations or warranties that a Reservation will lead to a successful event booking at any Venue, and you acknowledge and agree that a final booking is dependent upon the Customer’s meeting of all applicable requirements (such as insurance coverage and timely submission of all necessary data to the Listing User) and, where applicable, entry into a Vendor Agreement.
1.2. Customer agrees to use the Service only to book Reservations and then honor those Reservations by (subject to entry into a Venue Agreement, if applicable) arriving at the Venue on time and ordering and paying for food, beverage and other services in accordance with this Agreement and any applicable Venue Agreement. Resale or attempted resale of Reservations is prohibited and is grounds for, among other things, cancellation of your Reservations or termination of your access to the Service.
1.3. The Service may permit you to submit reviews, comments, and ratings; send emails and other communications; and submit suggestions, ideas, comments, questions, or other information for publication and distribution to Venues and other third parties (“Feedback Content”). Any such Feedback Content must not be illegal, threatening, obscene, racist, defamatory, libelous, pornographic, infringing of intellectual property rights, promoting of illegal activity or harm to groups and/or individuals, invasive of privacy, purposely false or otherwise injurious to third parties, or objectionable and must not consist of or contain software, computer viruses, commercial solicitation, political campaigning, chain letters, mass mailings, any form of “spam” or references to illegal activity, malpractice, purposeful overcharging, false advertising, or health code violations (e.g., foreign objects in food, food poisoning, etc.). Your Feedback Content should be unbiased and objective. You may not submit reviews, comments or ratings of your own Venue, or any venue of your employer, friend, relative or a competitor. You may not use a false email address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of Feedback Content. The name you provide associated with Feedback Content you submit may be displayed publicly with such Feedback Content. Company reserves the right (but has no obligation) to monitor, remove, or edit Feedback Content in Company’s sole discretion, including if Feedback Content violates this Agreement, but you acknowledge that Company may not regularly review submitted Feedback Content. If you do submit Feedback Content, and unless we indicate otherwise, you grant Company a nonexclusive, perpetual, royalty-free, irrevocable, and fully sublicensable (through multiple tiers) right to use, modify, reproduce, adapt, translate, publish, create derivative works from, distribute, display, and otherwise exploit such Feedback Content throughout the world in any media, and, where applicable, you hereby waive any moral or other rights you may have in the Feedback Content you submit in favor of Company. Company takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any Feedback Content submitted by you or any other user or third party.
2.1. You acknowledge that all transactions you enter into in connection with the Service are between you and the other Service user acting as a Listing User or Customer (as applicable) and the Company is not a party to such transactions. The Company’s sole involvement in user-to-user transactions is to make available a marketplace for Listing Users to list and for Customers to make Reservations. Any agreement to a proposal made within the Service constitutes a contract directly between the applicable Listing User and Customer for the provision of the applicable Venue at the stated price and subject to such other terms as may be agreed to between the Listing User and Customer within the Service as part of the agreed-upon proposal (each such contract, a “Venue Agreement”).
2.2. You are solely responsible for investigating the quality, appropriateness, space, cleanliness and credentials of any Venue with respect to which you may communicate with a Listing User through the Service. You acknowledge that the Company: (i) does not inspect any Venue, (ii) does not guarantee that services promised by Listing Users will be performed or meet your needs, (iii) does not guarantee that Venues will conform with any provided descriptions or be similar in appearance to any provided photographs, (iv) does not investigate or screen Listing Users or Venues in any way, including with respect to their quality, appropriateness, space, cleanliness and credentials and (v) makes no warranties regarding the existence, safety, quality, adequacy, merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose of any Venue or promised services, that a Listing User has the right to provide any Venue or that a Listing User will consummate any transaction. You further acknowledge that the Company cannot and does not guarantee a Customer will pay amounts owed for a transaction.
2.3. You are solely responsible for determining your legal obligations in relation to any Venues or services you may offer or purchase or any Venue Agreement you may enter into, including as may relate to taxes, insurance or licensing and credentialing requirements. The Company does not provide legal advice.
2.4. While the Company does not control the acts or omissions of Service users, the Company does desire for Service users to have a good experience using the Service and interacting with other users. As such, when you use the Service in a Listing User capacity, you agree to: (i) accurately describe your Venue and not make any false or misleading statements relating thereto; and (ii) use your reasonable best efforts to timely complete all of your obligations under the Venue Agreement and perform any services in a professional and workmanlike manner. In addition, when you use the Service in a Customer capacity, you agree to (a) promptly make payment to the Listing User in accordance with the payment schedule agreed upon in the Venue Agreement; (b) honor all terms and requirements in the Venue Agreement; and (c) abide by all applicable laws and policies in force at the applicable event space or venue. Without limiting the Company’s other rights to terminate this Agreement or your use of the Service, you acknowledge that the Company may terminate your use of the Service and this Agreement in the event that the Company determines (in its sole discretion) that you have breached any portion of this Section 2.4.
2.5. Company recommends that both Customers and Listing Users obtain appropriate insurance for their use of Venues. Please review any respective insurance policy carefully, and in particular make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy, including, but not limited to, whether or not your insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of Customers (and the individuals the Customer has made Reservations for, if applicable) while using a Venue. Customer understands that certain Listing Users may require certain insurance under their Venue Agreements.
3. Representations and Warranties. You represent, warrant and covenant that, in connection with this Agreement or the Service, you will not and will not attempt to: (i) violate any laws, third party rights or our community guidelines and other policies; (ii) offer for sale or rent, sell or rent, purchase or otherwise transfer, deal in or dispose of illegal products or services or products or services that encourage illegal activities, controlled substances, offensive materials, stocks or other securities, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, firearms, weapons, explosives, hazardous materials, any item that has been subject to a recall or that you believe may be unsafe when used in an ordinary manner, alcohol, tobacco products, animals, plants or seeds; (iii) re-join or attempt to use the Service if the Company has banned or suspended you; (iv) defraud the Company or another user; or (vi) use another user’s account or allow another person to use your user account. Any illegal activities undertaken in connection with the Service may be referred to the authorities.

The aforementioned licenses will terminate with respect to any particular item of your Media when you or the Company remove it from the Service, provided that (i) any sublicenses may be perpetual and irrevocable and (ii) you acknowledge that such licenses survive to the extent necessary for a copy of your Media to be retained by the Company.

17.1. Agreement to Arbitrate. This Section 17 is referred to herein as the “Arbitration Agreement.” The parties that any and all controversies, claims, or disputes between you and Company arising out of, relating to, or resulting from this Agreement, shall be subject to binding arbitration pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Arbitration Agreement, and not any court action (other than a small claims court action to the extent the claim qualifies). The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.
17.2. Class Action Waiver. THE PARTIES AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH PARTIES AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S).
17.3. Procedures. Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) rules and procedures (the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. If there is any inconsistency between the AAA Rules and this Arbitration Agreement, the terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of this Agreement as a court would, including without limitation, the limitation of liability provisions in Section 16. You may visit http://www.adr.org for information on the AAA and http://www.adr.org/fileacase for information on how to file a claim against the Company.
17.4. Venue. The arbitration shall be held in the county in which you reside or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or Company may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on each party, but subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing if the circumstances warrant. Attendance at any in-person hearing may be made by telephone by either or both parties unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.
17.5. Governing Law. The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the state of Delaware, without regard to its conflicts of laws rules, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Service users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving you to the extent required by applicable law.
17.6. Costs of Arbitration. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s Rules. Each party will be responsible for all other fees it incurs in connection with the arbitration, including without limitation, all attorney fees.
17.7. Confidentiality. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
17.8. Severability. If a court decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement other than Section 17.2 is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified. If a court decides that any of the provisions of Section 17.2 is invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void. The remainder of this Agreement will continue to apply.
18. Miscellaneous. The Company may make modifications, deletions and/or additions to this Agreement (“Changes”) at any time. Changes will be effective: (i) thirty (30) days after the Company provides notice of the Changes, whether such notice is provided through the Service user interface, is sent to the e-mail address associated with your account or otherwise; or (ii) when you opt-in or otherwise expressly agree to the Changes or a version of this Agreement incorporating the Changes, whichever comes first. Under this Agreement, you consent to receive communications from the Company electronically. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the Service that is not subject to arbitration under Section 17 shall be filed only in the state or federal courts in Delaware (or a small claims court of competent jurisdiction) and you hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any such action. The failure of any party at any time to require performance of any provision of this Agreement shall in no manner affect such party’s right at a later time to enforce the same. A waiver of any breach of any provision of this Agreement shall not be construed as a continuing waiver of other breaches of the same or other provisions of this Agreement. If any provision of this Agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this Agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by the Company without restriction. This is the entire agreement between us relating to the subject matter herein and shall not be modified except in a writing, signed by both parties, or by a change to this Agreement made by the Company as set forth herein.

C. Repeat Infringer Policy Perfect Venue may withdraw all rights and privileges relating to the Service from any user who is deemed to be a repeat infringer. This determination will be based on the number of “strikes” against the user. A “strike” is counted against a user each time there is either: (i) an adjudication by a court, arbitrator or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction that the user has engaged in copyright infringement of any kind in relation to the Service; or (ii) Perfect Venue has actual knowledge, regardless of any such adjudication, that the user has engaged in any such copyright infringement. Each adjudication or instance of knowledge counts as a separate strike. If an adjudication or instance of knowledge pertains to multiple instances of copyright infringement, it can count as multiple strikes. Perfect Venue has adopted a “three strikes and you’re out” policy under which a user who accumulates three strikes is considered a repeat infringer and may be subject to account termination.
