5.    Supplier Rules and Restrictions

Each reservation booked by you is subject to additional terms and conditions imposed by the supplier, which will are attached to the reservation or are available on the applicable supplier website. You agree to read all policies carefully and to make these policies available to your customers. When booking a reservation, you accept the applicable terms upon confirming that reservation and represent and warrant that your customers have also agreed to such terms.

You understand that any violation by you or your customers of any supplier term or condition may result in cancellation of the applicable reservation(s), in your or your customer being denied access to the applicable travel product or services, in your or the customer forfeiting any monies paid for such reservation(s), and/or in our debiting your account for any costs we incur as a result of such violation.

Please note that each reservation is subject to the cancellation and refund policies attached to the reservation. Many prepaid reservations are not cancelable or otherwise require payment of a cancellation or change fee.

6.    Pricing, sorting order, and other related matters

Pricing. You acknowledge that we or our affiliates pre-negotiate certain room rates with hotel suppliers to facilitate the booking of reservations. You also acknowledge that we provide the Site to you as a means to facilitate the booking reservations in exchange for certain consideration, in the form of a fee. The room rate displayed on the Site is a combination of the pre-negotiated room rate for rooms reserved on your behalf by us and our fee for your use of the Site.

You authorize us to book reservations for you or your customers at the total reservation price, which includes the room rate displayed on the Site, plus tax recovery charges, service fees, and where applicable, taxes on our services. You agree that your credit card (or that of your customers) will be charged by us for the total reservation price.

Payments for reservations are processed in the United States, when we process such payment. When the travel supplier processes payments, such payments will be processed in the country in which the travel supplier is based.

Taxes. You acknowledge that except with respect to tax obligations on the amounts we retain for our services, we do not collect taxes for remittance to applicable taxing authorities. The tax recovery charges on prepaid hotel transactions are a recovery of the estimated taxes (e.g. sales and use, occupancy, room tax, excise tax, value added tax, etc.) that we pay to the hotel supplier for taxes due on the hotel's rental rate for the room. Our hotel suppliers are responsible for remitting applicable taxes to the applicable taxing jurisdictions. We do not act as co-vendors with any supplier included on the Site. Taxability and the appropriate tax rate vary greatly by location. The actual tax amounts paid by us to the hotel suppliers may vary from the tax recovery charge amounts, depending upon the rates, taxability, etc. in effect at the time of the actual use of the hotel by you or your customers.

Currency Matters. In some instances, we will convert hotel rates from a different currency for convenience purposes to provide you and your customers with an estimate of the amount of the purchase in United States dollars. As a result, if a reservation is booked, the amount charged by the hotel supplier may be slightly different due to currency fluctuations. You (or your customer’s) statement may also include a fee from the card issuer to process the transaction plus any applicable taxes for international purchases. 

Sorting. From time to time, the Site may offer “sort” or “filter” settings that allow you to order search results to meet certain criteria, or to include or exclude various options based on certain criteria. If no options are selected, the Site will show a range of relevant options in the search results, based on our default sort order, [which reflects the relevance of properties to your search criteria. We measure relevance by taking into account factors like a property’s location, the popularity of the property (measured by how many bookings for the property are made through the Sites), the quality of the content provided by the property, and the competitiveness of the property’s rates and availability, all relative to other properties meeting your chosen search criteria. The compensation which a property pays us for bookings made through the Site is also a factor for the relative ranking of properties with similar offers, based on the relevance factors described above. On our non-default sorts (e.g., by price), properties with similar results will be ordered based on the factors above]. Additionally, we continually make an effort to optimize the Site, and accordingly, may test different default sort order algorithms from time to time.

 

Other Matters. Some hotel suppliers may require you or your customers to present a credit card or cash deposit upon check-in to cover additional expenses incurred during your stay. Such deposit is unrelated to any payment received by us for your or your customer’s hotel booking. 

 

Some banks and credit card companies impose fees for international or cross border transactions. For instance, if a booking is made using a US-issued card with a non-US merchant, the bank may charge a cross border or international transaction fee. Furthermore, booking international travel may be considered an international transaction by the bank or card company, since we or the hotel supplier may pass card details to an international travel supplier to be charged. In addition, some banks and card companies impose fees for currency conversion. For instance, if making a booking in a currency other than the currency of the credit card, the credit card company may convert the booking amount to the currency of the credit card and charge a conversion fee. The currency exchange rate and foreign transaction fee is determined solely by the bank on the day that it processes the transaction. If you or your customers have any questions about these fees or the exchange rate applied to the booking, please contact (or direct your customers to contact) the bank. 

 

7.    You must notify your customers of these Terms

When booking travel services on or through our Site for your customers, you must notify your customers of the material terms of these Terms, including, without limitation, our terms and conditions under Section 5 (relating to our hotel suppliers’ additional terms and conditions), Section 6 (relating to pricing, taxes currency and other matters), Section  8 (relating to the lack of any guaranty by us regarding the terms, prices or other content offered by our suppliers, among other things), and Section 12 (excluding damages and otherwise limiting our liability to you and to any third parties, including your customers).

13.  Legal Disputes

You and we agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen or may arise between us relating in any way to or arising out of these Terms or your use of or access of the Site (including any Content or other materials, products or services or information accessed as a result of the Site) will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this “Legal Disputes” section. Please read this “Legal Disputes” section carefully. It affects your rights and will have a substantial impact on how claims you and we have against each other are resolved.

Applicable Law. These Terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Florida, without regard to conflicts of law principles. You agree that the Site will be deemed: (i) based solely in the State of Florida; and (ii) a passive service that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us and our assigns, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than the State of Florida.

Agreement to Arbitrate. Any civil action, claim, dispute or proceeding arising out of or relating to this or any previous version of these Terms, your use of or access to the Site or Content or other materials, products or services or information accessed as a result of the Site (except for an injunctive action regarding a breach or threatened breach of any provision of these Terms by you as provided below) will be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, before a single arbitrator, rather than in court.

Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. You and we agree that the arbitrator will apply the terms of these Terms as a court would.

The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, and to arbitrate any part of these Terms, including any claim that all or any part of the this section or these Terms is void or voidable, or that any claim or dispute is not subject to arbitration under these Terms.

The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) exclusively in Palm Beach County, Florida, under the AAA’s rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (as applicable), as modified by this section. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA’s site at http://www.adr.org.

You and we will select the arbitrator, and if you and we are unable to reach agreement on selection of the arbitrator within 30 days after the notice of arbitration is served, then the AAA will select the arbitrator. Arbitration will not commence until the party requesting arbitration has deposited U.S. $1,000 with the arbitrator for the arbitrator’s fees and costs. The party requesting arbitration will advance such sums as are required from time to time by the arbitrator to pay the arbitrator’s fees and costs until the prevailing party is determined or the parties have agreed in writing to an alternate allocation of fees and costs.

The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims exclusively in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator will not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving our other users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same user to the extent required by applicable law. Judgment on any award rendered by the arbitrator is final, binding and conclusive on you and us and your and our respective administrators, executors, legal representatives, successors and assigns, and may only be entered in the state or federal courts of record for Palm Beach County, Florida.

Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS PART OF ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND WE AGREE OTHERWISE IN WRITING, 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). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER USERS.

THEREFORE, YOU DO NOT HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO COURT TO ASSERT OR DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS AND YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN OR BRING CLASS ACTIONS. BY USING THE SITE, YOU CONSENT TO THESE RESTRICTIONS.

Judicial Forum for Legal Disputes. Unless you and we agree otherwise in writing, in the event that any provision of this section is found not to apply to you or to a particular claim or dispute as a result of a decision by the arbitrator or a court order, any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and us must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in Palm Beach County, Florida. You and we will submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Palm Beach County, Florida for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.

14.  Our Remedies

You acknowledge that we may be irreparably damaged if these Terms are not specifically enforced, and damages at law would be an inadequate remedy. Therefore, in the event of a breach or threatened breach of any provision of these Terms by you, we will be entitled, in addition to all rights and remedies, to an injunction restraining such breach or threatened breach, without being required to show any actual damage or to post an injunction bond, or to a decree for specific performance of the provisions of these Terms. You agree that (notwithstanding Section 13 above) we may bring any action or proceeding with regard to such injunction restraining such breach or threatened breach in the courts of record of Palm Beach County, Florida, or the United States District Court, Southern District of Florida, West Palm Beach Division. You consent to personal jurisdiction over you by such court and to the exclusive jurisdiction of such court, and waive any objection to the laying of venue of any such action or proceeding in such court. We may affect service of any court paper on you by mail or in such other manner as may be provided under applicable laws, regulations, rules of procedure or local rules.

15.  Changes to Terms 

ABC reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to update, amend or otherwise change these Terms at any time, in our sole discretion and without notice. Amendments will take effect immediately upon us posting such updates on the Site, and the most current version of the Terms will supersede all previous versions. ABC encourages you to periodically review the Terms to stay informed of our updates. If you do not agree to any change to these Terms, you must discontinue using the Site.

16.  Miscellaneous

If any provision of these Terms is contrary to, prohibited by or deemed invalid under applicable law, such provision will be inapplicable and deemed omitted to the extent so contrary, prohibited or invalid, but the remainder of these Terms will not be invalidated thereby and will be given full force and effect so far as possible. If any provision of these Terms may be construed in two or more ways, one of which would render the provision invalid or otherwise voidable or unenforceable and another of which would render the provision valid and enforceable, such provision will have the meaning that renders it valid and enforceable.

For purposes of these Terms, the words “include,” “includes” and “including” are deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation”; and the word “or” is not exclusive. The headings contained in these Terms are for convenience of reference only, are not to be considered a part of these Terms, and will not limit or otherwise affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of these Terms.

All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made in these Terms, as may be amended by us, from time to time, will survive your acceptance of these Terms and the termination of these Terms.

No failure to exercise, and no delay in exercising, any right or any power set forth in these Terms by us will operate as a waiver of such right or power, nor will any single or partial exercise of any right or power under these Terms by us preclude further exercise of that or any other right or power under these Terms.

These Terms replace all previous notices or statements with respect to this subject, and cannot be modified orally or in writing by any of our associates, representatives or any other third parties.

We may give, assign or transfer our rights or obligations under these Terms to any person or entity at any time with or without your consent. You may not give, assign or transfer your rights or obligations under these Terms to any person or entity without our prior written consent, which may be withheld in our sole discretion. Any attempt to assign your rights or obligations under these Terms without our consent will be void and of no force and effect.

We will not be liable for any changes, delays, failures or problems out of our control, including, without limitation, any changes, delays, failures or problems caused by natural disasters, war, terrorism, riots, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, network infrastructure failures, strikes, shortage of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials and other similar events.

You and we are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by these Terms.

These Terms (together, with any documents they expressly incorporate by reference, including our Privacy Policy) represent the entire understanding and agreement between you and us regarding the subject matter of these Terms, and supersede all other previous agreements, understandings or representations regarding these Terms.
