16. LikeFridays’s Role.
We offer you the right to use a platform that enables Members to publish, offer, search for, and book Host Services. While we work hard to ensure our Members have great experiences using LikeFridays, we do not and cannot control the conduct of Guests and Hosts. You acknowledge that LikeFridays has the right, but does not have any obligation, to monitor the use of the LikeFridays Platform and verify information provided by our Members. For example, we may review, disable access to, remove, or edit Content to: (i) operate, secure and improve the LikeFridays Platform (including for fraud prevention, risk assessment, investigation and customer support purposes); (ii) ensure Members’ compliance with these Terms; (iii) comply with applicable law or the order or requirement of a court, law enforcement or other administrative agency or governmental body; (iv) address Content that we determine is harmful or objectionable; (v) take actions set out in these Terms; and (vi) maintain and enforce any quality or eligibility criteria, including by removing Listings that don’t meet quality and eligibility criteria. Members acknowledge and agree that LikeFridays administers its Additional Legal Terms, Policies (such as our Extenuating Circumstances Policy) and Standards (such as basic requirements for hosts), including decisions about whether and how to apply them to a particular situation, at its sole discretion. Members agree to cooperate with and assist LikeFridays in good faith, and to provide LikeFridays with such information and take such actions as may be reasonably requested by LikeFridays with respect to any investigation undertaken by LikeFridays regarding the use or abuse of the LikeFridays Platform. LikeFridays is not acting as an agent for any Member except for where LikeFridays Payments acts as a collection agent as provided in the Payments Terms.

For example: (i) we do not endorse or warrant the existence, conduct, performance, safety, quality, legality, or suitability of any Guest, Host, Host Service, Listing, or third party; (ii) we do not warrant the performance or non-interruption of the LikeFridays Platform; and (iii) we do not warrant that verification, identity, or background checks conducted on Listings or Members (if any) will identify past misconduct or prevent future misconduct. Any references to a Member or Listing being "verified" (or similar language) indicate only that the Member or Listing or LikeFridays has completed a relevant verification or identification process and nothing else. The disclaimers in these Terms apply to the maximum extent permitted by law. If you have statutory rights or warranties we cannot disclaim, the duration of any such statutorily required rights or warranties, will be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
19. Limitations on Liability.
Neither LikeFridays (including its affiliates and personnel) nor any other party involved in creating, producing, or delivering the LikeFridays Platform or any Content will be liable for any incidental, special, exemplary, or consequential damages, including lost profits, loss of data or loss of goodwill, service interruption, computer damage or system failure or the cost of substitute products or services, or for any damages for personal or bodily injury or emotional distress arising out of or in connection with (i) these Terms, (ii) the use of or inability to use the LikeFridays Platform or any Content, (iii) any communications, interactions or meetings you may have with someone you interact or meet with through, or as a result of, your use of the LikeFridays Platform, or (iv) publishing or booking of a Listing, including the provision or use of Host Services, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), product liability or any other legal theory, and whether or not LikeFridays has been informed of the possibility of such damage, even if a limited remedy set out in these Terms is found to have failed of its essential purpose.Except for our obligation to transmit payments to Hosts under these Terms, or make payments under the LikeFridays Host Damage Protection or Japan Host Insurance, in no event will LikeFridays’s aggregate liability for any claim or dispute arising out of or in connection with these Terms, your interaction with any Members, or your use of or inability to use the LikeFridays Platform, any Content, or any Host Service, exceed: (A) to Guests, the amount you paid as a Guest during the 12-month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, (B) to Hosts, the amount paid to you as a Host in the 12-month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or (C) to anyone else, one hundred U.S. dollars (US$100).These limitations of liability and damages are fundamental elements of the agreement between you and LikeFridays. If applicable law does not allow the limitations of liability set out in these Terms, the above limitations may not apply to you.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to release, defend (at LikeFridays’s option), indemnify, and hold LikeFridays (including LikeFridays Payments, other affiliates, and their personnel) harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected with: (i) your breach of these Terms (including any supplemental or additional terms that apply to a product or feature) or our Additional Legal Terms, Policies or Standards, (ii) your improper use of the LikeFridays Platform, (iii) your interaction with any Member, stay at an Accommodation, participation in an Experience or other Host Service, including without limitation any injuries, losses or damages (whether compensatory, direct, incidental, consequential or otherwise) of any kind arising in connection with or as a result of such interaction, stay, participation or use, (iv) your failure, or our failure at your direction, to accurately report, collect or remit Taxes, or (v) your breach of any laws, regulations or third party rights such as intellectual property or privacy rights.
21. Contracting Entities.
Based on your country of residence or establishment and what you are doing on the LikeFridays Platform, Schedule 1 below sets out the LikeFridays entity with whom you are contracting. If we identify through the LikeFridays Platform, a LikeFridays entity other than the one set out on Schedule 1 as being responsible for a product, feature or transaction, the LikeFridays entity so identified is your contracting entity with respect to that product, feature or transaction. If you change your country of residence or establishment, the LikeFridays company you contract with (as set out on Schedule 1) and the applicable version of the Terms of Service will be determined by your new country of residence or establishment, from the date on which your country of residence or establishment changes.22. United States Governing Law and Venue.
If you reside or have your place of establishment in the United States, these Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of California and the United States of America, without regard to conflict-of-law provisions. Judicial proceedings (other than small claims actions) that are excluded from the arbitration agreement in Section 23 must be brought in state or federal court in San Francisco, California, unless we both agree to some other location. You and we both consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in San Francisco, California.
23. United States Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Agreement.
This Arbitration Agreement only applies to you if your country of residence or establishment is the United States. If your country of residence or establishment is not the United States, and you nevertheless attempt to bring any legal claim against LikeFridays in the United States, this Arbitration Agreement will apply for determination of the threshold issue of whether this Section 23 applies to you, and all other threshold determinations, including residency, arbitrability, venue, and applicable law.
23.2 Overview of Dispute Resolution Process.
LikeFridays is committed to participating in a consumer-friendly dispute resolution process. To that end, these Terms provide for a two-part process for individuals to whom this Section 23 applies: (1) an informal negotiation directly with LikeFridays's customer service team (described in paragraph 23.3, below), and if necessary (2) a binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). You and LikeFridays each retain the right to seek resolution of the dispute in small claims court as an alternative to arbitration.
23.3 Mandatory Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution and Notification.
At least 30 days prior to initiating an arbitration, you and LikeFridays each agree to notify the other party of the dispute in writing and attempt in good faith to negotiate an informal resolution. You must send your notice of dispute to LikeFridays by mailing it to LikeFridays's agent for service: [Company Name], [Address], [City], [Postcode]. LikeFridays will send its notice of dispute to the email address associated with your LikeFridays account. A notice of dispute must include: the party’s name and preferred contact information, a brief description of the dispute, and the relief sought. If the parties are unable to resolve the dispute within the 30-day period, only then may either party commence arbitration by filing a written Demand for Arbitration with the AAA and providing a copy to the other party as specified in the AAA Rules.
23.4 Agreement to Arbitrate.
You and LikeFridays mutually agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the applicability, breach, termination, validity, enforcement or interpretation thereof, or any use of the LikeFridays Platform, Host Services, or any Content (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding individual arbitration (the “Arbitration Agreement”). If there is a dispute about whether this Arbitration Agreement can be enforced or applies to our Dispute, you and LikeFridays agree that the arbitrator will decide that issue.
23.5 Exceptions to Arbitration Agreement.
You and LikeFridays each agree that the following causes of action and/or claims for relief are exceptions to the Arbitration Agreement and will be brought in a judicial proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction (as defined by Section 22): (i) any claim or cause of action alleging actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights; (ii) any claim or cause of action seeking emergency injunctive relief based on exigent circumstances (e.g., imminent danger or commission of a crime, hacking, cyber-attack); or (iii) a request for the remedy of public injunctive relief; or (iv) any individual claim of sexual assault or sexual harassment arising from your use of the LikeFridays Platform or Host Services. You and LikeFridays agree that the remedy of public injunctive relief will proceed after the arbitration of all arbitrable claims, remedies, or causes of action, and will be stayed pending the outcome of the arbitration pursuant to section 3 of the Federal Arbitration Act.
23.6 Arbitration Rules and Governing Law.
This Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and the Federal Arbitration Act governs all substantive and procedural interpretation and enforcement of this provision. The arbitration will be administered by the arbitrator in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules and/or other AAA arbitration rules determined to be applicable by the AAA (the “AAA Rules“) then in effect, except as modified here.In order to make the arbitration most convenient to you, LikeFridays agrees that any required arbitration hearing may be conducted, at your option: (a) in the U.S. county where you reside; (b) in San Francisco County; (c) via phone or video conference. If the amount in controversy is $5,000 or less, the parties agree to proceed solely on the submission of documents to the arbitrator.
23.8 Modification of AAA Rules - Attorney’s Fees and Costs.
Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Rules. Either party may make a request that the arbitrator award attorneys’ fees and costs upon proving that the other party has asserted a claim, cross-claim or defense that is groundless in fact or law, brought in bad faith or for the purpose of harassment, or is otherwise frivolous, as allowed by applicable law and the AAA Rules.
23.9 Arbitrator’s Decision.
The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court with proper jurisdiction. The arbitrator may award any relief allowed by law or the AAA Rules, but declaratory or injunctive relief may be awarded only on an individual basis and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim.
23.10 Jury Trial Waiver.
You and LikeFridays acknowledge and agree that we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury as to all arbitrable Disputes.
23.11 No Class Actions or Representative Proceedings.
You and LikeFridays acknowledge and agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, we are each waiving the right to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action lawsuit, class-wide arbitration, private attorney general action, or any other representative or consolidated proceeding. Unless we agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of the waiver contained in this paragraph as to any claim, cause of action or requested remedy, then that claim, cause of action or requested remedy, and only that claim, cause of action or requested remedy, will be severed from this agreement to arbitrate and will be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that a claim, cause of action or requested remedy is severed pursuant to this paragraph, then you and we agree that the claims, causes of action or requested remedies that are not subject to arbitration will be stayed until all arbitrable claims, causes of action and requested remedies are resolved by the arbitrator.
Except as provided in Section 23.11, in the event that any portion of this Arbitration Agreement is deemed illegal or unenforceable, such provision will be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement will be given full force and effect.
23.13 Changes to Agreement to Arbitrate.
If LikeFridays changes this Section 23 after the date you last accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject that change by sending us written notice (including by email) within 30 days of the date the change is effective. Rejecting a new change, however, does not revoke or alter your prior consent to any earlier agreements to arbitrate any Dispute between you and LikeFridays (or your prior consent to any subsequent changes thereto), which will remain in effect and enforceable as to any Dispute between you and LikeFridays.
Except as provided in Section 23.12 and subject to Section 13.6, this Section 23 will survive any termination of these Terms and will continue to apply even if you stop using the LikeFridays Platform or terminate your LikeFridays account.

24.3 Without Limitation Provisions.
