Gayroom8 provides an online classifieds service, through the Platform, to allow registered Members (“Members”) to publish available living spaces(s) on the Platform (“Listings”), and to allow such Members to communicate and transact directly with each other. The Listings may include short or long term use of residential property in exchange for negotiated rent (“Rental”).

1.2. Gayroom8 disclaims any and all liability related to any and all Listings by any Member of the Platform. Members are solely responsible for their Listings and any dealings, commitments, and/or engagements made with any other Members.

1.3. You understand and agree that Gayroom8 is not a real estate broker, a contracting agent, an insurer, nor a bank establishment.

1.4. Gayroom8 is not an owner, operator, lessor, controller, creator, supplier, proprietor, seller, reseller, furnisher, provider or manager of any Listings and/or Rental. Gayroom8 is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Member.

1.5. Gayroom8 is not and does not become a party to, or otherwise participate in, any contractual relationship between Members, verbal, written, or otherwise. You exclusively determine the price of rent and/or budget, Rental period, and the parties with whom to transact and/or communicate. You act exclusively on your own behalf and for your own benefit, and not on behalf, or for the benefit, of Gayroom8. Gayroom8 does not, and shall not be deemed to, direct or control you generally or in your performance under these Terms specifically. 

1.6. Gayroom8 does not and cannot control over, neither guarantee (i) the truth or accuracy of any Listings, or any other Member Content (ii) the performance or conduct of any Member or third party and (iii) the existence, quality, suitability to your needs or expectations, safety or legality of any Listings, Rental and any other services provided by any Member.

1.7. Gayroom8 does not endorse any Members, Rental, or services delivered by Members in any way. Any references to a Listing, Member Profile, or Rental as being “verified”, (or any similar language) indicate that a relevant verification or identification process has been completed and does not represent anything more. Any such references are not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Gayroom8 for the accuracy, suitability, safety or trustworthiness of the referenced, including, without limitation, of any Member's identity, background or future conduct. Any such description or references are only intended to be useful information for evaluation purposes on the Platform. Accordingly, Gayroom8 recommends you always exercise due diligence and care when deciding to have any interaction and to engage in any transaction with any other Member. Gayroom8 is not responsible for any damage or harm, including physical or otherwise, resulting from your interactions with other Members.

1.8. The Platform may contain links to third-party websites or resources. Such third-party websites and resources may be subject to different terms and conditions and privacy practices.

Moreover, Gayroom8 may restrict the availability of the Platform, or certain Services (such as payment services), areas or features thereof, if this is necessary in view of capacity limits, the security or integrity of Gayroom8 servers, or to carry out maintenance measures that ensure the proper or improved functioning of the Platform.

1.10. Gayroom8 may improve, enhance and modify the Platform and introduce new Services or delete existing ones at any time.

In particular, Members should identify, understand and comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations in their respective localities. Laws may restrict the ability to rent a property, or certain types of properties, for short time periods and/or the online advertising of rentals. In some cities, Members may need to register, get a permit, or obtain a license before listing any Rental.

Members should review local laws and always seek legal guidance in case of any doubt before publishing a Listing on the Platform.

17.1. 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 Gayroom8 in the United States of America (to the extent not in conflict with the section “Applicable law and jurisdiction” below). 

17.2. Definition. As used in this Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration Provision, the term “Gayroom8” refers to GAYROOM8.COM, LLC 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 Platform. The term “Claims” means all claims, disputes, or controversies between you and Gayroom8 of any nature or kind, whether pre-existing, present, or future, that arise from or relate to the Gayroom8. This includes but is not limited to disagreements about the validity, enforceability, or scope of this Dispute Resolution and Binding Arbitration Provision.

17.3. Informal Efforts to Resolve Dispute. If a dispute arises between you and Gayroom8, you should first attempt to resolve it by contacting the Gayroom8 Customer Support by email or by sending the details of your complaint, including your contact information for a response, to the Gayroom8 address as listed in the introduction of these Terms. Gayroom8 will attempt in good faith to resolve all Claims submitted this way in a timely manner after being notified of such Claims. 

17.4. 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.

17.5.  Right to Opt Out. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THIS DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISION, YOU MUST NOTIFY Gayroom8 IN WRITING WITHIN 30 DAYS FROM THE DATE THAT YOU FIRST ACCEPT OR HAVE ACCESS TO THESE TERMS BY MAILING AN OPT-OUT REQUEST TO THE Gayroom8 CUSTOMER SERVICE SUPPORT CONTACT LISTED BELOW. YOUR WRITTEN NOTIFICATION MUST INCLUDE YOUR NAME, ADDRESS, THE EMAIL ADDRESS YOU USED TO REGISTER WITH Gayroom8, AND A CLEAR STATEMENT THAT YOU DO NOT WISH TO RESOLVE DISPUTES WITH Gayroom8 THROUGH ARBITRATION. YOUR DECISION TO OPT OUT OF THIS DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISION WILL HAVE NO ADVERSE EFFECT ON YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH Gayroom8 OR THE DELIVERY OF SITE, APPLICATION AND/OR SERVICES TO YOU BY Gayroom8. IF YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY NOTIFIED Gayroom8 OF YOUR DECISION TO OPT OUT OF ARBITRATION, YOU DO NOT NEED TO DO SO AGAIN.

17.6. 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, Gayroom8 agrees to reimburse you the amount of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees you are required to pay for the arbitration. 

17.7. 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 Miami, Florida, under its rules for international arbitration, and you and Gayroom8 agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the U.S. federal court in Miami, Florida 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 Gayroom8 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 Gayroom8 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 https://www.jamsadr.com, or by calling the toll free number: 1-800-352-5267 from inside the United States or +44 177 583 9808 from outside the United States.

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

17.9.  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. 

17.10. 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 Florida (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). 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.

17.11. Recovery and Attorneys’ Fees. If the arbitrator rules in your favor on the merits of any Claim you bring against Gayroom8 and issues you an award that is greater in monetary value than the last written settlement offer made by Gayroom8 to you before written submissions are made to the arbitrator, then Gayroom8 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 Gayroom8 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 you and Gayroom8.

17.12. Confidentiality. You and Gayroom8 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 Gayroom8’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.

17.13. 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.
