GOVERNING LAW. These Terms shall be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of North Carolina, United States, without regard to its conflicts of law rules. The exclusive jurisdiction for any dispute regarding the Site, the Materials, or these Terms shall be the state or federal courts located in the State of North Carolina, United States.
ARBITRATION. Except with respect to any claim or dispute involving the ownership, validity or use of any the Hotel trademarks or service marks, any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms, the Site, or Materials (including any claim that any provision of these Terms or Materials are invalid, illegal, or otherwise voidable or void), seeking as relief money damages and/or attorneys’ fees or other damages will be submitted for arbitration to the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The Hotel shall have the right in a proper case to obtain temporary restraining orders, temporary or preliminary injunctive relief and/or declaratory relief (other than declarations with respect to the amount of money damages) from a court of competent jurisdiction.
The arbitration proceedings shall be heard by one independent arbitrator who shall be an attorney or retired judge. The arbitration shall be held under then-existing Commercial Arbitration Rules of the AAA in the city where the Hotel is located. All matters within the scope of the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. 1, et seq.) will be governed by it and not by any state arbitration law. You and the Hotel waive any rights to maintain other available resolution processes for such disputes, such as a court action or administrative proceeding, to settle disputes. You and the Hotel waive any right to a jury trial for such disputes. The rules in arbitration are different from the rules that apply in court. There is no judge or jury, and review is limited, but an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief, and must honor the same limitations stated in the Terms, as a court would.
In reaching his or her decision, the arbitrator shall follow these Terms and Materials, shall be bound to apply the applicable law and shall not rule inconsistently with the applicable law. The arbitration shall be conducted on an individual basis, and not as a consolidated, common, representative, group or class. The arbitrator shall include in his or her award any relief he or she deems proper in terms of money damages (with interest on unpaid amounts from the date due at the maximum rate allowed by law), and attorneys’ fees and costs. The award of the arbitrator shall be conclusive and binding upon all parties hereto and judgment upon the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Other than as may be required by law, the entire arbitration proceedings (including, but not limited to, any rulings, decisions or orders of the arbitrator), shall remain confidential and not be disclosed to anyone other than the parties to these Terms.
LIMITATIONS PERIOD. Any and all claims and actions arising out of or relating to these Terms, the Site, or Materials shall be commenced within one (1) year from the occurrence of the facts giving rise to such claim or action, or such claim or action shall be barred. This limitation period does not apply to residents of New Jersey.
CLASS ACTION Waiver. You agree that you will not file a class action against the Hotel, or participate in a class action against the Hotel. You agree that you will not file or seek a class arbitration, or participate in a class arbitration, against the Hotel.
MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS. These Terms constitutes the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior oral and written agreements. No failure or delay on the part of the Hotel in exercising any right or remedy hereunder or enforcing the terms and conditions of these Terms will operate as a waiver thereof. If any part or provision of these Terms is found to be invalid, unenforceable or void, then the remaining portion shall remain in full force and effect. Headings are for convenience only and not for use in interpretation of these Terms.
