1.5. When Members make or accept (including, without limitation, by pre-approval) a booking, they are entering into a contractual relationship directly with each other. misterb&b is not and does not become a party to, or otherwise participates in, to such contractual relationship Members. You exclusively determine the price to be charged, the dates of booking and the parties with whom to transact. You act exclusively on your own behalf and for your own benefit, and not on behalf, or for the benefit, of misterb&b. misterb&b does not, and shall not be deemed to, direct or control you generally or in your performance under these Terms specifically.

1.7. misterb&b does not endorse any Members, Listings, Rental Properties, Experiences or services delivered by Hosts in any way. Any references to a Member Listing, Rental Property, or Experience as being “verified”, “connected” or “Fabul’Host” (or any similar language) indicate that a relevant verification or identification process has been completed and does not represent anything else. Any such references are not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by misterb&b for the accuracy, suitability, safety or trustworthiness of the referenced, including, without limitation, of any Member's identity, background or future conduct.

If so, misterb&b may accept as an alternative verification for Rental Properties, a copy of the utility bill (electricity or telephone bill) with your name and address. This security measure allows misterb&b to verify the Rental Property actually exists. You understand and agree that the offer of this Service of photography will not change that you remain responsible for ensuring your Rental Property or Experience is faithfully represented in the Verified Photos and your Listing. misterb&b sets monthly and/or annually caps on payment transfers to Hosts for bookings of Listings that have not been verified; you understand that these caps may vary without prior notice upon bank or third-party payment services providers.

You agree that misterb&b’s receipt of any amount due by the Guest for the booking satisfies the relevant Guest’s obligations to make payments to you.

6.2.5. You, as a Host, understand and agree that the payout initiated by misterb&b to you for the Guest’s payment due for the booking of your Listing (“Payout”) will be the Booking Fees, less applicable Host Fees (including applicable taxes, such as VAT) and applicable Taxes (as defined below).

Such timing fees will be displayed to you before you select the related payout timing.

6.2.8. You understand that misterb&b may be required to delay the release of your Payout under any applicable local law.

6.2.10. If required by applicable law, you, as a Host, must provide misterb&b with Taxes-related information (such as tax ID number), before a Payout is made to you. Accordingly, payment will be delayed until such time as you provide such Taxes-related information to misterb&b, if applicable. 

6.2.11. If you, as a Host, owe or agree to pay any amount via misterb&b to misterb&b (whether as a result of your bookings or actions as a Host or otherwise), then misterb&b may (but is not obliged to) withhold the amount owing to misterb&b from any payout amounts due to you as a Host, and use the withheld amount to setoff the amount owed by you to misterb&b.

15.3.1. misterb&b works with one or various Third-Party Payment Processor(s) to enable Hosts to accept payments from Guests.

15.3.2. You understand and agree misterb&b is not responsible for (i) the ability of Third-Party Payment Processors to make their payment services it provides available at any times, (ii) any delays in the provision of payment services by Third-Party Payment Processors, and (ii) the damageable acts and omissions of Third-Party Payment Processor in providing payment services to you.

15.3.3. misterb&b’s payment services may incorporate or link to Third-Party Payment Processors websites or resources. Such website or resources are subject to different terms and conditions and privacy policies and Members should review them independently. You understand misterb&b is neither responsible nor liable for the availability or accuracy of such websites or resources.

15.3.4. Your access to or use of certain payment services provided by Third-Party Payment Processors may be subject to, or require you to accept, additional terms and conditions and privacy policies. If there is a conflict between these Terms and applicable terms and conditions of a Third-Party Payment Processor, the latter terms and conditions will take precedence with respect to your use of or access to the payment services, unless specified otherwise.

15.3.5. At the exception of the transactions as described below, payment services are currently provided by Stripe and are subject to the Stripe Connected Account Agreement, which includes the Stripe Terms of Service (see https://stripe.com/fr/connect-account/legal) (collectively, the “Stripe Services Agreement”). By agreeing to the present Terms or continuing to use the Services, you agree to be bound by the Stripe Services Agreement, as the same may be modified by Stripe from time to time. As a condition of misterb&b enabling payment services through Stripe, you agree to provide misterb&b accurate and complete information about you and/or your business, and you authorize misterb&b, as applicable, to share with Stripe this information and transaction-related information associated to your use of the payment services provided by Stripe.

15.3.6. In the case of both Guests and Hosts having their respective residencies in one of the following countries: Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Iceland, Lithuania, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Malta, Monaco, Poland, Romania, Saint-Martin, Slovenia, Slovakia, and when the booking payment is made to Hosts via wire transfers, payment services are currently provided by Adyen and are subject to the provisions of the Adyen Terms and Conditions. By agreeing to the present Terms or continuing to use the Services, you agree to be bound by the Adyen terms and Conditions, as the same may be modified by Adyen from time to time. As a condition of misterb&b enabling payment services through Adyen, you agree to provide misterb&b accurate and complete information about you and/or your business, and you authorize misterb&b, as applicable, to share with Adyen this information and transaction-related information associated to your use of the payment services provided by Adyen.

 

16. Rounding Off

 

16.1. misterb&b may, in its sole discretion, (i) round up any amounts that are payable from, and (ii) round down any amounts that are payable to Members, to the nearest whole functional base unit in which the currency is denominated (e.g. to the nearest currency supported by the misterb&b Platform).

16.2. Some currencies are denominated in large numbers. In those cases, misterb&b may determine the functional base unit in which those currencies are denominated to be 10, 100 or 1,000 of the currency.

 

17. Foreign Currency and Conversion

 

17.1. misterb&b’s online platform facilitates bookings between Members who may prefer to pay and to receive payments in different currencies, which may require foreign currency conversions to accommodate these differing currency preferences. Although the misterb&b Platform allows users to view the price of Listings in a number of currencies, the currencies available for users to make and receive payments may be limited, and may not include the default currency in any given geographic location.

17.2. Each foreign currency conversion is processed at a foreign currency conversion rate for the amount of one (1) currency that must be paid to buy a certain amount of another currency at a given time. Currency conversion rates will vary from time to time.

17.3. misterb&b will process a foreign currency conversion in certain situations as determined by misterb&b. misterb&b will do so by using a system-wide rate for foreign currency conversion that is in effect at the time the foreign currency conversion is processed, and does not include any fee or mark-up by misterb&b (“Base Exchange Rate”). misterb&b (i) establishes the Base Exchange Rate using data from one or more third-parties such as ECB (ecb.europa.eu), and (ii) updates the Base Exchange Rate on a regular basis, but not on a real-time basis. Accordingly, you understand the Base Exchange Rate may not be identical to the applicable market rate in effect at the specific time a foreign currency conversion is processed.

17.4. misterb&b may also use an adjusted exchange rate by adding to this Base Exchange Rate a mark-up that represents a charge imposed by misterb&b for its holding costs and foreign currency risks (“Adjusted Exchange Rate”). When you as a Guest submit a booking request for a Listing, you may be able to view the Actual Exchange Rate used to calculate your Payment. Where the Adjusted Exchange Rate is applied, you may be able to view the mark-up included. The Actual Exchange Rate (and any mark-up included in such rate) will also be stated in the billing receipt for your booking.

17.5. Please note that misterb&b may impose or deduct foreign currency processing costs on or from any payments or payouts by misterb&b in currencies other than U.S. dollars (“USD”) and euros (“EUR”). More information on any such costs or deductions will be available via the misterb&b Platform.

17.6. Please note that third-party payment services providers (such as your credit or bank card issuers) will use a currency conversion rate for and may impose a currency conversion fee on your Payment or Payout, if your Payment or Payout Method is denominated in a currency that is different from the currency in which (i) a Guest has to pay for his or her booking or any other due amounts pursuant to these Terms, or (ii) a Host is paid for the booking of a Listing or any other due amounts pursuant to these Terms. All of these currency conversion rates and fees are not controlled by or known to misterb&b.  As a Host, you acknowledge and agree that third-party payment services providers and/or bank or wire transfer fees may be deducted from your Payouts.

 

18.  Taxes

 

18.1. As a Host, you understand and agree that you are solely responsible for knowing and complying with local tax regulations. In particular, you are responsible in determining your obligations to mention in your Listing, collect, report and/or remit to the appropriate local governmental agencies, departments or authorities (“Tax Authorities”) any applicable income taxes, value added taxes, sales taxes, Occupancy Taxes (as defined below) and/or any other applicable taxes (collectively “Taxes”). 

18.2. Tax regulations may require misterb&b (i) to collect appropriate Taxes-related information from users and share it to the appropriate Tax Authority (e.g. in the form of an official tax document to be filled by the Hosts), and/or (ii) withhold Taxes from Payouts to Hosts (such as the income tax). You are solely responsible for keeping the Taxes-related information current, complete and accurate. If you fail to provide misterb&b with Taxes-related information that misterb&b determines to be sufficient to alleviate its obligation, if any, to withhold payments to you (e.g. where you are a U.S. Host and you fail to provide misterb&b with a completed IRS Form W-9 when necessary), misterb&b reserves the right to freeze all payouts to you and/or withhold any amounts as required by law, until resolution.

18.3. You understand and acknowledge that the Tax Authority where your Rental Property is located may require you, as a Host, to collect taxes from your Guests for the right to use and/or occupy your Rental Property, and to remit such taxes to the appropriate Tax Authority. Such taxes may be locally referred to as “occupancy taxes”, “hotel taxes”, “lodging taxes”, “transient taxes”, “sales and use taxes”, “value added taxes”, “room taxes”, “tourist taxes” or other titles ("Occupancy Taxes"). The laws in jurisdictions may vary, but Occupancy Taxes are generally required to be collected and remitted as a percentage of the rent paid by the Guest, a set amount per Guest and per day, or other variations.

18.4. In certain jurisdictions, the Tax Authority may assert Hosts or misterb&b have an obligation to collect and/or remit Taxes. If so, misterb&b may decide, in its sole discretion, to facilitate collection and/or remittance of Taxes from Guests on behalf of and in-lieu of Hosts. When misterb&b facilitates collection and/or remittance of Taxes in a jurisdiction for the first time, misterb&b will provide notice to existing Hosts with Listings in such jurisdictions. The amount of Taxes collected and/or remitted through facilitation by misterb&b, if any, will be visible to and separately stated to both Guests and Hosts on their respective transaction documents. In any jurisdiction where misterb&b facilitates collection and/or remittance of Taxes on behalf of and in-lieu of Hosts, such Hosts are not permitted to also collect, and consequently remit, such taxes from their Guests.

18.5. In any jurisdiction in which misterb&b decides to facilitate collection and/or remittance of Taxes, whether you are a Guest or Host, you hereby authorize, instruct and mandate misterb&b to collect Taxes from Guests on behalf of and in lieu of Hosts at the time Booking Fees are collected, and to remit such Taxes to the appropriate Tax Authority.

18.6. For any jurisdiction in which misterb&b facilitates collection and/or remittance of Taxes, Hosts and Guests expressly grant misterb&b permission to transfer data and other information relating to Taxes collected and/or remitted, if any, to the appropriate Tax Authority.

18.7. You agree that misterb&b may seek additional amounts in the event that such Taxes collected and/or remitted are insufficient to fully discharge your obligations and/or misterb&b’s obligations to the Tax Authority.

18.8. If you benefit from an exemption from Taxes collected by misterb&b, if any, you may contact misterb&b Customer Support and provide sufficient evidences of such Taxes exemptions benefit before your booking payment. You agree that your sole remedy for Taxes unduly remitted by misterb&b to the appropriate Tax Authority is a refund of the undue Taxes amount from the appropriate Tax Authority, in accordance with applicable procedures set by this Tax Authority.

Some Experiences by Hosts may carry, without limitations, property damage, risk of illness, bodily injury, disability or death. You assume full responsibility for the choice you make before, during and after your participation in an Experience.

Any actual or potential agreement or transaction between Members, including a Guest and a Host, including the quality, condition, safety or legality of the Rental Properties and the Experiences, and the truth or accuracy of the Listings, Travel Reviews and Ratings (including the content thereof or any review relating to any Rental Property or Experience), the ability of Members to rent a Rental Property or propose an activity or a service as an Experience, or the ability of Members to contract for Rental Properties or Experiences, are solely the responsibility of each Member and not the responsibility of misterb&b.

You solely are responsible, and agree to take reasonable precautions, for all of your communications and interactions with other Members and with other persons with whom you communicate or interact as a result of your use of the misterb&b Platform, particularly if you decide to meet offline or in person regardless of whether such meetings are organized by misterb&b or not. You understand that misterb&b does not make any attempt to verify the statements of Members or any other users of the misterb&b Platform, or to review or visit any Rental Properties, any Experiences or any businesses or places reviewed by a Member.

You agree that you have had whatever opportunity you deem necessary to investigate the misterb&b Services, laws, rules, or regulations that may be applicable to your Listings and/or the services you are offering as a Host or that you book as a Guest. You agree you are not relying upon any statement of law or fact made by misterb&b relating to a Listing.

The foregoing disclaimers apply to the maximum extent permitted by law. You may have other statutory rights. However, the duration of statutorily required warranties, if any, shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.

 

26. Limitation of liability

 

26.1. Unless your country of residence is in the EU, you acknowledge and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by law, the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the misterb&b Platform, Content, your publishing or booking of any Listing via the misterb&b Platform, your stay at a Rental Property, your participation in an Experience, or any contact you have with other Members whether in person or online remains with you. Neither misterb&b nor any other party involved in creating, producing, or delivering the misterb&b Platform or 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 these (i) Terms, (ii) from the use of or inability to use the misterb&b Platform or Content, (iii) from any communications, interactions or meetings with other Members or other persons with whom you communicate or interact as a result of your use of the misterb&b Platform or Content, or (iv) from your listing or booking of any Rental Properties or Experience via the misterb&b Platform, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), product liability or any other legal theory, and whether or not misterb&b has been informed of the possibility of such damage, even if a limited remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose. In no event will misterb&b’s aggregate liability arising out of or in connection with these Terms and your use of the misterb&b Platform and Content including, but not limited to, from any Travel Reviews, Listings or booking of any Rental Properties or Experiences via the misterb&b Platform, or from the use of or inability to use the misterb&b Platform or Content and in connection with any Rental Properties or Experiences, or interactions with any other Members, exceed the amounts you have paid or owe for bookings via the misterb&b Platform as a Guest in the twelve (12) month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or if you are a Host, the amounts paid by misterb&b to you in the twelve (12) month period prior to the event giving rise to the liability, or one hundred U.S. dollars (USD$100), if no such payments have been made, as applicable. The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between misterb&b and you. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you.

26.2. If your Country of Residence is in the EU, misterb&b is liable under statutory provisions for assumption of guarantees or any other strict liability, or in case of a culpable injury to life, limb, or health by misterb&b, its legal representatives, directors, or other vicarious agents. misterb&b is liable for any negligent breaches of essential contractual obligations by misterb&b, its legal representatives, directors, or other vicarious agents. Essential contractual obligations are such duties of misterb&b in whose proper fulfilment you regularly trust and must trust for the proper execution of the contract but the amount shall be limited to the typically occurring foreseeable damage. Any additional liability of misterb&b is excluded.

 

27. Indemnification 

 

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold SFO84, Inc. and its affiliates and subsidiaries, including, but not limited to, Pinklab360, and their officers, directors, employees and agents, harmless from and against any and all costs, 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 violation of these Terms or Policies, (ii) your access to or use of the misterb&b Platform and Content, or by any person using your user name and/or password ; (iii) your Member Content or reliance on Content; (iv) your (a) interaction with or disputes with any Member, (b) booking of a Rental Property or Experience, or (c) creation of a Listing; (v) the use, condition or rental of a Rental Property by you, including but not limited to any injuries, losses, or damages (whether compensatory, direct, incidental, consequential or otherwise) of any kind arising in connection with or as a result of a rental, booking or use of a Rental Property; or (vi) the condition or the participation in an Experience by you, including but not limited to any injuries, losses or damages (whether compensatory, direct, incidental, consequential or otherwise) or any kind arising in connection with or as a result of a provision of, booking of or participation in an Experience. 

 

28. Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration Provision

 

28.1. This Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration Provision shall apply if (i) you are a resident of the United States of America; or (ii) you are not resident of the United States but bring any claim against misterb&b in the United States of America (to the extent not in conflict with the section “Applicable law and jurisdiction” below). 

28.2. Definition. As used in this Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration Provision, the term “misterb&b” refers to SFO84, Inc., including its subsidiaries and agents. The terms “you” and “your” refer to you as an individual and any legal entity you control, work for, or represent when you access or use the misterb&b Platform. The term “Claims” means all claims, disputes, or controversies between you and misterb&b of any nature or kind, whether pre-existing, present, or future, that arise from or relate to the misterb&b. This includes but is not limited to disagreements about the validity, enforceability, or scope of this Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration Provision.

28.3. Informal Efforts to Resolve Dispute. If a dispute arises between you and misterb&b, you should first attempt to resolve it by contacting the misterb&b Customer Support by email or by sending the details of your complaint, including your contact information for a response, to the SFO84, Inc. address as listed in the introduction of these Terms. misterb&b will attempt in good faith to resolve all Claims submitted this way in a timely manner after being notified of such Claims. 

28.4. Agreement to Arbitrate. If informal efforts to resolve Claims fail or are not used, you agree that any and all Claims will be resolved exclusively by binding arbitration as described herein, except that: (i) you may assert Claims in a small claims court in the United States if your Claims meet the court’s jurisdictional requirements; and (ii) either party may pursue Claims and relief in a court of competent jurisdiction regarding the validity and/or infringement of a party’s intellectual property rights. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award to you on an individual basis the same damages and forms of relief as a court could (including injunctive and declaratory relief as well as statutory damages), and must follow the law and these Terms as a court would. ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS AND PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED.

28.5.  Right to Opt Out. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THIS DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISION, YOU MUST NOTIFY MISTERB&B IN WRITING WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT YOU FIRST ACCEPT OR HAVE ACCESS TO THESE TERMS BY MAILING OR FAXING AN OPT-OUT REQUEST TO THE MISTERB&B CUSTOMER SERVICE CENTER LISTED BELOW. YOUR WRITTEN NOTIFICATION MUST INCLUDE YOUR NAME, ADDRESS, THE EMAIL ADDRESS YOU USED TO REGISTER WITH MISTERB&B, AND A CLEAR STATEMENT THAT YOU DO NOT WISH TO RESOLVE DISPUTES WITH MISTERB&B THROUGH ARBITRATION. YOUR DECISION TO OPT OUT OF THIS DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISION WILL HAVE NO ADVERSE EFFECT ON YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH MISTERB&B OR THE DELIVERY OF SITE, APPLICATION AND/OR SERVICES TO YOU BY MISTERB&B. IF YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY NOTIFIED MISTERB&B OF YOUR DECISION TO OPT OUT OF ARBITRATION, YOU DO NOT NEED TO DO SO AGAIN.

28.6. Arbitration Fees. The allocation and payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the rules of the JAMS (“JAMS”), which limit the amount a consumer is required to pay. If the arbitrator determines that your Claims are not frivolous applying the standards of the U.S. Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, misterb&b agrees to reimburse you the amount of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees you are required to pay for the arbitration. 

28.7. Arbitration Rules. The arbitration will be conducted by the JAMS under its rules if you are a resident of the United States; if your use of the Site, Application and/or Services has been principally for personal or household use, the JAMS’ procedures for consumer-related disputes including the minimum fairness standards will also apply. If you are a resident of a country other than the United States or a Member State of the European Union, the arbitration will be conducted by the JAMS in San Francisco, California, under its rules for international arbitration, and you and misterb&b agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the U.S. federal court in San Francisco, California in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. If you are a resident of a country within the European Union, the arbitration will be conducted by the JAMS in Paris, France, under its rules for international arbitration, and you and misterb&b agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts in Paris, France in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. In the event of a conflict or inconsistency between the applicable arbitration rules and this Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration Provision, this Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration Provision shall govern and control. The arbitration will be conducted in the English language by a single arbitrator who is a licensed trial attorney or licensed trial lawyer with at least fifteen (15) years’ experience in consumer and technology transactions and who is also a member of the JAMS roster of arbitrators. If you and misterb&b cannot agree on a mutually acceptable arbitrator within fifteen (15) days after the arbitration is initiated, then the JAMS will pick a neutral arbitrator who meets the qualifications. The JAMS rules are available at http://www.jamsadr.com, or by calling the toll free number: 1-800-352-5267 from inside the United States or +44 207 583 9808 from outside the United States.

28.8. Initiating Arbitration. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must follow the procedures specified by the applicable JAMS rules as described on their website at http://www.jamsadr.com.

28.9.  Time restriction. YOU MUST FILE A COMPLAINT WITH JAMS OR A PERMITTED COURT WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR OF THE DATE OF THE OCCURRENCE OF THE EVENT OR FACTS GIVING RISE TO A CLAIM, OR YOU WAIVE THE RIGHT TO PURSUE ANY CLAIM BASED UPON SUCH EVENT, FACTS OR DISPUTE. 

28.10. Arbitration Process. Because appearing in person for arbitration can be unduly burdensome in the circumstances, arbitration under this Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration Provision shall not require any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless mutually agreed. Either or both parties may participate by written submissions, telephone calls, or other means of remote communication as allowed by the arbitrator. The arbitration proceedings will be conducted in the English language at a location designated by the JAMS that is the most convenient for you. The arbitration can only decide Claim(s) between you and us, and may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons that may have similar claims. There shall be no pre-arbitration discovery except as provided for in the applicable JAMS rules. The arbitrator will honor claims of privilege recognized by law and will take reasonable steps to protect customer account information and other confidential or proprietary information. In conducting the arbitration proceeding, the arbitrator will apply the law of the State of California (without regard to its conflicts of law provisions) including U.S. federal law for matters covered by federal law (e.g. the Federal Arbitration Act). The confidentiality provisions of these Terms will be enforceable under the provisions of the California Uniform Trade Secrets Act, California Civil Code Section 3426, as amended. At the request of any party, the arbitrator shall provide a brief written explanation of the basis for the decision and award. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitrator’s decision will be final and binding on the parties except for any right to appeal under the JAMS rules or the Federal Arbitration Act.

28.11. Recovery and Attorneys’ Fees. If the arbitrator rules in your favor on the merits of any Claim you bring against misterb&b and issues you an award that is greater in monetary value than the last written settlement offer made by misterb&b to you before written submissions are made to the arbitrator, then misterb&b will (i) pay you one hundred and fifty percent (150%) of your arbitration damages award, up to one thousand U.S. dollars (USD$1,000)  over and above your damages award; and (ii) pay your reasonable attorneys’ fees, and reimburse any expenses (including expert witness fees and costs) that you or your attorney reasonably incurred for investigating, preparing, and pursuing your Claim in arbitration. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of such fees, expenses, and the alternative payment and the attorney premium at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits. The right to attorneys’ fees and expenses discussed above supplements any right to attorneys’ fees and expenses you may have under applicable law, although you may not recover duplicative awards of attorneys’ fees or costs. If your use of the Site, Application and/or Services was principally for personal or household use, neither party will be entitled to any award of punitive or special damages and misterb&b waives any right it may have to seek an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses from you in connection with any arbitration of Claims between us.

28.12. Confidentiality. You and misterb&b shall keep confidential any information exchanged during the arbitration as well as the decision of the arbitrator made with respect to any Claim(s) arbitrated under this Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration Provision and, with the exception of disclosure to your or misterb&b’s attorneys, accountants, auditors, and other legal or financial advisors, neither party shall disclose such information or decision to any other person unless required to do so by law.

28.13. Continuing Obligation to Arbitrate; Severability. This Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration Provision shall survive termination of your access to or use of any Site, Application and/or Services and these Terms. If any portion of this Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration Provision is deemed invalid or unenforceable at law, such invalid or unenforceable provision will be interpreted, construed or reformed to the extent required to make it valid and enforceable, and this shall not invalidate the remaining portions of this Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration Provision.
