EVENTMATES ONLY PROVIDES A VENUE

The Site is a communications platform for enabling connections between Users and Planners. Those certain Event Planning Services requested by Users, which are to be completed by Planners, are hereinafter referred to as “Event Planning Services.” EVENTMATES does not take part in the interaction between Users and Planners. EVENTMATES does not have control over the quality, timing, legality, failure to provide, or any other aspect whatsoever of any work provided by Planners, nor of the integrity, responsibility or any of the actions or omissions whatsoever of any Users or Planners. EVENTMATES makes no representations about the suitability, reliability, timeliness, or accuracy of the Event Planning Services requested and provided by Planners identified through the Site whether in public, private, or offline interactions.

Clients and Planners may be subject to an extensive vetting process before they can register and during their use of the Service, including an identity verification and a criminal background check, using a third party service as appropriate. Users hereby give consent to conduct background checks as often as required in compliance with federal and state laws and the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

While company may perform background checks, as outlined above, EVENTMATES cannot confirm that each User is who they claim to be and therefore, EVENTMATES cannot and does not assume any responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of this information or any information provided through the Site.

NEITHER EVENTMATES NOR ITS AFFILIATES OR LICENSORS IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONDUCT, WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE, OF ANY USER OF THE SITE OR ANY PLANNER. EVENTMATES AND ITS AFFILIATES AND LICENSORS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, INJURY OR DAMAGE ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SITE OR THE EVENT PLANNING SERVICES.


RELEASE

The Site is only a venue for connecting Users and Planners.

EVENTMATES reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to your indemnification. You will not, in any event, settle any claim or matter without the written consent of EVENTMATES.


DISPUTE RESOLUTION

INFORMAL NEGOTIATIONS. To expedite resolution and reduce the cost of any dispute, controversy or claim related to this Agreement (“Dispute”), you and EVENTMATES agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating any arbitration or court proceeding. Such informal negotiations will commence upon written notice. Your address for such notices is your billing address, with an email copy to the email address you have provided to EVENTMATES. EVENTMATES’s address for such notices is EVENTMATES, Inc, 217 Water Street, #304, New York, NY 10038 Attention: Legal.

BINDING ARBITRATION. If you and EVENTMATES are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, all claims arising from use of the Service (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party will be final and binding on the other. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT IF EITHER PARTY ELECTS TO ARBITRATE, NEITHER PARTY WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT OR HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration will be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Consumer Rules”), both of which are available at the AAA website www.adr.org. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation will be governed by the AAA Rules (and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules). If your claim for damages does not exceed $10,000, EVENTMATES will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)). The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, you and EVENTMATES may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.

EXCEPTIONS TO ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION. Each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court or to seek injunctive or other equitable relief on an individual basis in a federal or state court in New York, New York with respect to any dispute related to the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s intellectual property or proprietary rights.

WAIVER OF RIGHT TO BE A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN A PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. You and EVENTMATES agree that any arbitration will be limited to the Dispute between EVENTMATES and you individually. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOU AND EVENTMATES ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and EVENTMATES otherwise agree, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” Section will be deemed null and void.

LOCATION OF ARBITRATION. Arbitration will take place in New York, New York. You and EVENTMATES agree that for any Dispute not subject to arbitration (other than claims proceeding in any small claims court), or where no election to arbitrate has been made, the New York state and Federal courts located in New York, New York have exclusive jurisdiction and you and EVENTMATES agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.


SPECIAL PROMOTIONS

EVENTMATES may from time to time provide certain promotional opportunities, sweepstakes and contests to Users. All such promotions will be run at the sole discretion of EVENTMATES, and can be activated, modified or removed at anytime by EVENTMATES without advance notification and the liability of any of EVENTMATES’s partners pursuant to such promotional opportunities, sweepstakes and contests shall be limited pursuant to the Disclaimer and Limitation of Liability section of these Terms.
